That said, I'd love to know how we got a penalty when the last thing I saw before it was awarded were a pair of English fists flailing around. (It was probably well justified flailing though.)
And in fairness to the French, they gave it everything and they do seem to have got over their indiscipline problems. In fact they kept on fighting to the end. If they keep that up they'll all be applying for British citizenship in a couple of years.
Not wanting to get all "soapbox-ish" but...why is it that the English (probably fuelled by the "medya", but maybe founded on "something else") cannot be graceful in victory and have to "get one up" on everyone?
