    Shame they have very little else though. Much like the 80's when they had Southall, Ratcliffe, Rush and Hughes but the rest of the team was made up of spanners so they never got anywhere near qualifying most of the time.

    Well, they did get fairly close, dodgy pens and all, but yeah, there's never the depth thankfully. Didn't you lot used to play in the Welsh Cup?

    Looking like another exit on pens then.

    The footy seems very half-arsed after watching the athletics, I have to say.

    It is indeed, but I'm looking forward to the pens, which you can't say is a normal situation.

    Genitals from Rambo to take another after missing one in normal time.

    2-2 after 4.

    The Koreans pens were impressive has to be said.

    Still good practice for Sturridge, one day he may miss a penalty in a World Cup.

    Doing nothing to dispel the "Team GB are just England" myth.

    What I don't understand is that the European U21 Championship semi finalists qualify for the Olympics, so in the future if Scotland, England, Wales or N.Ireland's U21s get to the semis, why can that team not just compete as Team GB?

    Says a lot that numerous letter to the editor of various British papers are slagging off GB for losing to a team like Korea

    If they had a clue, they'd realise that the Koreans (and Japanese) have got ****ing good young players who have spent a lot of time together and it's no disgrace to get beaten by them
