Glad to see that in the World Cup today that third-world Iran were beaten 3-1 by the second-world Mexicans. There was speculation that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad might visit Germany to watch Iran play if they were playing well in the competition. This would have been a political nightmare for us as he is not welcome in Europe. Funnily enough though, Iranian football is so bad that it unlikely to be an issue. There is a bigger chance of The Prophet going to Germany to watch them lose than Ahmadinejad!!
