    I still don't quite understand why we don't play as the Britain rather than 4 separate teams in world cup? We play as the UK in the Olympics? We would have so much more opportunity of getting somewhere and perhaps may strengthen the union?

    Because the four home nations would lose the power and influence they have on the world game. The laws of football are decided by IFAB which is composed of 50%of representatives from the four associations (one vote each) and 50% (four votes) from the rest of the world.

    We played. It was a one off because we hosted it. And didn't include any Scottish or Northern Irish players.


    And technically we're GB for the Olympics, not UK. There's a difference.
