As much as I enjoyed the outcome as much for the GIRFUY to the commentators and pundits, I guess you have to say well done to them getting that far and it's something we're resigned to only dreaming of unless something unfathomably drastic changes. Not sure they'd have made the final going down Italy's route of knockout games though.
Still, we kept them at bay in their own back garden and were well worth at least the point. Denmark, Iceland, Wales, Greece, Croatia and others will always be examples of size/population not necessarily being the factor that prevents success but we possibly have to learn something or change something if we don't want another 23 years in the wilderness. I realise I've derailed the thread a little bit there but hey ho .
