OK, OK, here's the flashing female/penalty shoot-out story. Wookey, sir?
Ah, we can be arsed again.
Not sure if we've mentioned this on A-F, but odd how the press have conveniently looked over the Hillsborough footage in Bowling For Columbine

Kenya threaten to quit Fifa because... erm... because Kenya fielded overage players in junior national sides, yes?
