The worst aspect was the glib assumption that, should Wales be the only British team to qualify or the World Cup finals, we will somehow be able, heroically, to 'save British face'. What nonsense. This is the same school of thought that brands successful Scottish athletes, Irish boxers, etc. as 'British'. Please support us if Wales get through, but not as some kind of England surrogates.
