The boy is half Cypriot, half Greek. South African born.


You can start by being less anti-Greek. :)

"And they have also suffered at the hands of the Cypriot Sports Organisation, whose reaction to the growing sport has ranged from non-existent support to charging them for playing at home..."


Then you wonder why we never get ahead.

Yes, that article was a good read.

Oh and have found a vid for the Fantastic Fijians and their version of the hakka called... The Cibi.

The NZs look a bit intimidated by it... :D

I thought these 2 loved each other? :?

Turkey 53, Azerbaijan 3 in Antalya (ENC 3) Match stopped 65m-violence


We've played Azerbaijan twice, thrashed them twice. Not a single incident of violence.

After the Paphos game I spoke to the captain(I'm assuming) of Azerbaijan and he actually THANKED ME for the excellent facilities and accommodation.
The Azeri's were a decent bunch, even after getting slaughtered by the Cypriots.
