England balk in the Balkans

Although I’ve never been a regular reader of the Sun newspaper, I’ve always admired the talent its writers have to come up with ingenious headlines.

All the other teams from the (I won’t use the term “British Isles” as the Irish embassy will no doubt come down on me like a tonne of bricks for use of inappropriate terminology) were in action last night and I’ve come up with some of my own headlines:

Kollar keeps Irish in Czech
Rep. of Ireland Kollard’d by Czech equalizer
Kilbane goal Duffed up by Czech reply

Rumours of Tartan Army comeback are Scotched
Scotland kept under lock and Kiev

Northern Ireland find Latvia’s Achilles Healy (I’ll get my coat)

With the news of a new species of mouse discovered in Cyprus, the headline for Wales’ victory over the Cypriots might be “Of mice and men”

Maybe readers have further suggestions for headlines?
