and no-one has mentioned the Faroe Islands, and the amazing performance from the Scots getting a point off what must be one of the favorites for Euro2004.

It's good to see that the 'keeper doesn't wear the bobble hat anymore (Faroes not Scotlands).

Well, at least the new boy Berti has got some consistency into their game. Long may their current streak of form continue.

Fast forward to 2006 - it is just before Scotland v Brazil at the next World Cup Group game.

Ronaldo goes into the Brazilian changing room to find all his team mates looking a bit glum. "What's up?" he asks.

"Well, we're having trouble getting motivated for this game. We know it's important but it's only Scotland. They're sh*te and we can't be bothered”.

Ronaldo looks at them and says "Well, I reckon I can beat these by myself, you lads go down the pub."

So Ronaldo goes out to play Scotland by himself and the rest of the Brazilian team go off for a few jars. After a few pints they wonder how the game is going, so they get the landlord to put the teletext on. A big cheer goes up as the screen reads "Brazil 1 - Scotland 0 (Ronaldo 10 minutes)". He is beating Scotland all by himself! Anyway, a few more pints later and the game is forgotten until someone remembers "It must be full time now, let's see how he got on". They put the teletext on. "Result from the Stadium "Brazil 1(Ronaldo 10 minutes) - Scotland 1 (Angus McSh*te 89 minutes)".They can't believe it, he has single handedly got a draw against Scotland!!

They rush back to the Stadium to congratulate him. They find him in the dressing room, still in his gear, sat with his head in his hands. He refuses to look at them.

"I've let you down, I've let you down"

"Don't be daft, you got a draw against Scotland, all by yourself. And they only scored at the very, very end!"

"No, No, I have, I've let you down... I got sent off after 12 minutes”
