Hibernian F.C. earned a European berth this year by virtue of finishing as runners-up to Celtic in the Scottish Cup last season and they responded by losing 0-2 at home and 0-7 away to Malmo (the third place team in Sweden’s top flight last year).
You just can’t do that.
It’s embarrassing to the club, to the nation, and to the game of football.
Where’s your pride?
While there’s been a bit of bad blood between Ross County F.C. and St. Johnstone F.C. this year, all credit to the Saints. They came from behind at home today to draw Rosenborg BK (the third place team in Norway’s top flight last year) 1-1 and to advance to the next round on a 2-1 aggregate score.
That’s how you do it.
That’s how you represent your club, your nation, and the game.
