Sure it's the FA Sunday Cup, but it's still the FA and it's still a Cup. It's been around since 1965, we didn't make it up, we just won it.

Cyprus clinch big win in Switzerland.


Cyprus’ national basketball team clinched an impressive victory on Wednesday after beating hosts Switzerland 80-76 in their 2017 Eurobasket qualifying group.
The win at the Fribourg Site Sportif Saint-Leonard Arena means Panagiotis Giannaras’ side still have an outside chance of qualifying.

So Zenon, check it out right.....
Firstly congrats to CYP
Nevermind the black American naturalized CY player in the photo.
The foreign nationalists are more butt hurt about that egg yolk and parsley flag on the lower left hand side of the photo!

Officiality.. it's what separates foreign nationalists wet dreams and the Cypriot reality.

Meaningless win. Unfortunately. I hope the soccer team will do better.
