Subject: RE: BS: Turkey v England in Istanbul
The Turks are very nice people - until they get within a hundred yards of a football stadium.

The Turkish player had no right to "taunt" Beckham, this could have caused a riot. Beckham did very well to keep his cool. This sort of "taunting", some of it physical, was integral to the trouble at the recent Man U. /Arsenal match.

The only result that pleased me, from a "Home Countries" (quotation marks for Ard Mhacha's benefit(!) perspective, was the Scottish one!
