N Irish flag in ‘no shock’ shock

A world cup football, decorated with various flags
Great post on a Saudi blog about the latest scandal that (supposedly) has the Muslim boycotters up in arms.

It’s all to do with the football pictured on the left. I thought I’d post it to highlight a prominent Northern Irish flag which isn’t a source of controversy.

Though God knows why NI would be on a World Cup ball these days. Maybe they don’t realise we’re not Brazil.

(Found on Middle East blog On The Face)Do read the comments on that post. One person has rudely stated..

“The flags of Northern Ireland and Israel. They are not in the World Cup. Israel, maybe next time, but come on, Northern Ireland have about as much chance of ever qualifying, as the Imam University team.”
