Sorry to hear that. I believe there is petty crime in that area. I assume it was a one off as you mention the date. Obviously Philippines is much less safe in reality even if you do feel safer there(irrationally) yourself.

Yes crime is worldwide. In my case yes we took the kids up to see the lights and winter wonderland. We were barged from behind and our reaction was to see to the kids. In those few seconds the niece had her iPhone snatched and they were gone. This could have happened anywhere and I have been up to concerts etc several times since with no problems. The big difference I really find is the attitude, in Manila they are far friendlier there which gives u the feeling of safety.

I can't help but think what fine margins there are in sport. Had Rashford's pen. been 3 inches further to the right it would have gone in, we could have won the shoot-out and all the subsequent hoo-ha would never have happened.
I'd go back a little further. Pickford made a very good safe just before Italy scored, re-directing a close-range header away from the goal. If he had deflected the path of the ball just a tiny bit further it would have bounced off the post away from the goal or off the pitch for a corner. Instead it hit the inside of the post and bounced straight back to Bonucci who promptly scored.

Obviously we can play this 'fine margins' game to a ridiculous level for any incident in the game, but Pickford really was very unlucky that is safe did not turn out to be more useful.

Pickford would have expected to have been on the winning side saving 2 pens.
