yeah, but everyone decent has been going down in the friendlies...and better get it out of the way here.

Weren't that bad of a match...some good Welsh defending...and better to lose to Wales than Scotland

Anyway, as for outsiders, I'd also like to see Japan do quite well, they had a good run in some of these friendlies and the like.

Excuse me Sir - that England-Wales match was accorded Test status and most England-Wales fixtures are. Only in soccer are games termed 'friendly'...I have never seen a friendly soccer match either (the players still wear the expressions of petulant schoolboys...)

It was a meaningless warmup that no one will remember, nor care about other than the coaches a day later.

True - but not a friendly.

Remember the loss to France in 2003?
(maybe not?!)

The only problem with that is SA supporters are now more arrogant than the English. You've been relegated to second place.

That phrase was coined by an Ozzie reporter on CNN after the last world cup.

I think NZ & OZ supporters are way ahead on the arrogance scale.
