Men Crap, Women Good

Not in general, of course (that would be sexist), but in England's international football teams.

Hat tip to Ben for this link to the England women's unstoppable progress towards the World Cup finals in China next year. Along the way, England have beaten Hungary 13-0, but also seem to share the men's team's expertise at drawing with Sweden.

As noted on another blog, the SWP's Keith Flett recommended that all good anti-imperialists back Iran in the men's World Cup. Which will leave him with a problem with this one. I'm just guessing, but I reckon that a state that does not even allow women to watch football is unlikely to be entering a team.
