The Brazilian girls think we’re out to get them.
The Brazilian women’s football team is fuming that British authorities failed to replace a broken down bus for more than five hours, stranding them on the side of the road the night before their big match against Team GB.
Some of the team members have told Brazilian newspapers that the delay by London Olympic organisers may have been a deliberate ploy to upset them on the eve of the game, which will be held at Wembley Stadium tonight.
Calm down girls. We’re British, ergo we don’t try to nobble the opposition. But transport fiascos? Someone should explain they’re in the global HQ for those.
