And how about South Africa then? having a go at England !!
How dare you!
You never even qualified for the Euros how bad is that?
LOL! +1 Stan, had a good chortle at that.
Sadly, South African football is rubbish and outside a brief showing at the World Cup in France (96?) always was. Maybe if they finally appoint Ingesund as our coach we may get somewhere, but outside Steven Pienaar they are a talentless bunch of prima donnas. We couldn't even qualify for the African Cup of Nations because the geniuses in charge of our football couldn't work out how ties in the qualifiers were decided, and everyone ran around celebrating after drawing our last game on purpose - only to realise much later that we had to win it. It's no disgrace to lose to Egypt, Ivory Coast, or Nigeria, but we couldn't even find our way past nations I didn't know had football teams.
Still the only nation to host the world cup and not reach the knockout stage, and will most likely remain such after the next WC. And all our magnificent stadia? Well I went to the Moses Madiba stadium about 2 weeks ago, and it is fantastic. I went to see the Top Gear road show, not football of course, because no local club can get 1000 supporters never mind 85k or whatever the capacity is. It's probably the largest structure in the entire city after one or two shopping malls - total white elephant. What were they thinking?
