They have football but only people under age of 23 are allowed. Britain cant compete as the footballing nations are diff. as in Eng, Wal, Sco, N Ire.
We might get a team in the 2012 London games though, it is being discussed I believe. We could actually have a Britain football team in every games, I think both FIFA and IOC have no problem with it .Problem is the Scots don't want anything to do with it, I read that apparently playing for Britain will "take away their scottish identity," or something along those lines. I guess that means scottish runners and swimmers and everyone else wouldn't want to compete for Great Britain either then?
IMO its pathetic if we can't have a football team in the olympics, if its allowed then why not?
Back on topic, poor first day, although certainly not unexpected. Hope collingwood can keep it going for a while and get us to a defendable 1st innings total.
