Some more text.\footnote{%
First column                     & Second column \\
Second row                       & Something. \\
Third row                        & Now here roughly we have the footnote number \\
Fourth row                       & Something more. \\
Fifth row                        & Something more. \\
Sixth row                        & Something more. \\
Seventh row                      & Something more.
