A return to reality

Not terribly surprisingly, the Scots didn’t manage to beat Ukraine tonight in Kiev. It appears that the second goal was the result of a questionable penalty, consistent with some iffy refereeing, but I suppose that the team can look on the bright side: at least they weren’t attacked by a couple of hundred neo-nazis while the police did not much…
