Euro-Defeat

The country woke up this morning to the shocking realisation that they will not be competing in Euro 2008.

It's difficult to believe, but true:

Northern Ireland have failed to qualify.

Manager Nigel Worthington was bracing himself, after his team lost 1-0 to Spain, for the onslaught of criticism and hatred from the tabloid press.

Bloke on street said, "I can't believe it, he's got to be sacked after this. It's an embarrassment. Our country expects to compete at the highest level. Failure is not an option."

Elsewhere in the British Isles, no-one was surprised about failure of England, Scotland and Wales to qualify either.
