The first point is taken by the eye

It has happened to all of us. The opposition turns up, well dressed, well organised or looking confident.... one nil to them. 

And, we have all been on the other side too. Turning up feeling and looking confident, they are looking at you, and you know; one nil you.  

The first point in any game is before the whistle blows. Win that point every time.
