Stubborn Wales

Due to domestic obligations, I couldn't get to White Hart Lane to see Wales take on Brazil last night but I was free early enough to go and watch it down the pub. (I don't have BBC3 at home as I'm not enough of a TV watcher to make it worthwhile subscribing to Sky or cable. Maybe now I'll get a Freeview box.)

I was pleased to find that the game was on in CJs, but a little disappointed that no Brazilian supporters from the favelas of Colliers Wood seemed to have turned up.

Even though we lost 2-0, Wales held the Pentacampeao for the first hour which is a very respectable.

(Although, to be fair, they only beat us 1-0 in the quarter finals of the 1958 World Cup. That is the only occasion that Wales have been beaten in a match at a World Cup, but then again 1958 is the only time we ever qualified.)
