There's not many good headline writers working for the BBC but this is the best one so far during this WC:

'Bono gives Morocco the edge in penalty shootout win'.

No CR7 for Portugal tonight. Looks like even his international manager has run out of patience with the sulky git.

No complaints here.
Got what they deserved.

All credit to the Coach for resting Ronaldo - Seems to be a master stroke of foresight so far :salute:

Be good to see him come on with 15 mins left to pick at the Swiss tired bones :thumbl:

Well, what WW actually said was:
"I've stuck to my WC policy of not watching one minute of football from a country with those shocking human rights."

Now whether that means 'broadcast from Qatar' or 'played by a country'...

:mrgreen:
"Football is not so important that we can't have tolerance of incorrect evaluations."

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

I haven’t watched one minute of football, I’ve watched plenty. It’s like saying I haven’t had a beer. Works every time :cheers:
Bueno!
