I'd rather back myself to have a chance as prima ballerina at the Prague National Ballet than for that to happen.

    Btw, Barney - Togo's list of international players:

    Adekanmi Olufade - 25, forward, four seasons in Europe with Lokeren, Lille, Nice and Charleroi, 35 games/4 goals
    Thomas Dossevi - 26, midfielder, Valenciennes, 95 games/23 goals in French Ligue 2
    Emmanuel Adebayor - 21, striker, Monaco, 96 games/22 goals (also 44 games/15 goals with Metz)
    Kossi Agassas - 27, goalkeeper, Metz, 30 games

    Angola's a bit worse. They have a striker who play in Championnat de France Amateur (that's the fourth division), a couple of players in the Portuguese Super Liga (Mantorras and Edson), and three players in the Portuguese Division Two.
    Messi scores on the rebound.

    Actually, it'd be about 30-odd teams, because the West Indies wouldn't compete as one team (if they did, they'd have a pretty good chance of coming in the semis, though...)

    Both Bangladesh and Pakistan got knocked out at the preliminary stages of the Asian qualifiers (by Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan respectively), Sri Lanka finished last, India just avoided last place. The West Indies had four teams in the top twelve of CONCACAF, South Africa and Zimbabwe both finished third in their African qualifiers, New Zealand got knocked out by the Solomons in Oceania.

    I think a Commonwealth football tournament would be pretty good. Aside from the cricketing nations you would also have Nigeria, Cameroon & Canada too. We'd prob start as favourites, but I don't think it'd be a forgone conclusion we'd win.

    Bahrain just had goal disallowed & player sent off. Sounds like it's starting to get a bit lively now.

    Conveniently forgetting the ****-up in the penalty box in the first half?

    This is the kinda moment I wish I was born ten years earlier or Drillo ten years later...I'm used to Norway qualifying, so there's no ecstasy any more, just despair when we do lose...

    Marvin Andrews was my hero then. Brilliant defensive header. I'm still a HUGE Chris Birchall fan. You see, the Bahrainesians thought they could pull us down by taking out Birchall, but they didn't count on Tall Boy!

    More will than those discovering their Scottish ones, that's for sure
