    The same could said for England, and they are arguably in a stronger position in the 1960's since they did win a World Cup. The Russians never could.

    Not 100% sure tbh. Gotta check but something like 168 additional HK$ ( early bird special rate you know ) ;-) I subscribed during the Winter Olympics - TVB Network Vision as they told me the World Cup will be included later in June :-) :-) But of coz once the football is over, I'm doomed enjoying a pretty useless TV package for quite some time :-(

    No but they did win a European Championship which most people believe to be more difficult to win given the strength of the teams involved.

    Spain did help them by not turning up for one game though.

    Hard to say. Looks like it could be although we now know it wasnt but it didn't matter anyway as we won by 2 clear goals

    What goes around comes around in any case.

    Great link Trebor :-) That Russian Linesman was Germany's public enemy for a long long time :-)


    Edit: 2nd clip
