Yeah we have had many great players in the past and qualified for 3 World Cups - we're actually the smallest ever country to qualify! (In terms of population size). Our current team is obviously nowhere near as good as those great teams - however, there have been some positive signs for us. Obviously, the 1-0 victory over England was a highlight!!!
I honestly don't think the game was that rough - we try to be physical. However, I have not watched the game on video...and had quite a few beers before the match, so my judgment may have been slightly blurred!!
