Orlando Bloom's "Will Turner" absolutely shanks it for Austria!

It's a scalp for Austria!

Never thought I would say this but that was shocking defending from the Italians. This will either end 2-2 or 3-1.

Well done Austria. You're keeping this even more interesting!

At what point do people looking at Wales as Minnows and put them as underdogs all the time. They have players from Madrid Juve Spurs Man Utd Liverpool etc in their squad now. They are hardly the championship league 1 team they used to be

I think Northern Ireland have a case to be called minnows with a population of approx 1.3 million less than Wales.

It's a fair point, but their talismen are aging so hopefully it's not too long before they return to the abyss Smiley

I don't think there is an age that you should consider a bun

Having long hair tied up is definitely still acceptable at 36.

How JQ?  Cheesy

"Scalp" was a nod to the Austrian who assisted (Schaub) and it was shocking defending by the Italians at a corner - especially by their historical standards (even though they are now play more like Spain a few years ago). You wouldn't have seen that from the master, Maldini.

The 2-2 or 3-1 was based on Austria still "going for it" and snatching an equaliser or getting caught on the counter in trying to do so. Which they did for much longer than most thought they would (myself included). The usual tends to happen in FA Cup games when a smaller club "goes for it" and sometimes it works but they gamble is always flattering the opposition and losing heavily.

I said well done to Austria because of all of the above and they made the game far more interesting to watch; from a neutral perspective Smiley

Has Parker gone back to Fulham yet?  Hmmm

oh yeah. he's far from finished.

But he, Ramsay, Joe Allen, etc are into their 30s now. Not sure they have the replacements coming through.

Your score predictions of 2-2 or 3-1 never happened irrespective of poor defending and sooner or later you will make a mistake whilst posting
