‘WHY do the Scots do it to themselves?

Scottish rockers Mogwai have apparently won thousands of new converts for their music in Croatia after they called the English football team ‘bastards’ and told Croatian journalists that they hope England get ‘destroyed’ at the Euro 2004 finals in Portugal this summer.

‘I’d love Croatia to beat England,’ Barry Burns said after the group’s concert in Zagreb on Sunday. “Please destroy those bastards.”

England play Croatia on June 21 in Lisbon in their Group B match.

The Scots watch it on TV because yet again they didn’t qualify.’
