    If one accepts the distinction as being an expectation of permanent vs temporary residency (which is not universally accepted), I would expect both categories to be represented in Copenhagen.

    No, but seems to go close at least once every game without actually converting.

    Bale has started very well. Game very even.

    Pretty sure individual EU countries set their own restrictions against individual nations.

    You would presumably have signed up for the EU Covid Cert by now, whereas no confirmation as to where the UK stands on that so far.

    Seems positively restrained by our recent standards.

    So nice to see the anthem being sung with such passion, I think it was Gary Speed that brought that in. It was certainly present under Chris Coleman.

    A 4-7 split for the team photo is a strange one.

    The Welsh team stood in a line getting really short in the middle then tall again looks like a recent covid infections graph.

    Come on Wales! You've already won the anthem match. Good luck to you all.

    Wales remind me of the Czech Republic side in Euro 2004, Bale is Poborsky (upgraded version), Ramsey is Nedved, Rosicky is Joe Allen, Moore is Koller.

    Oh, Rome was a blast. Best defeat since Zenica.

    Awesome! And another badge to boot. Hope you'll be able to enjoy that more this time.

    The Manics and Stereophonics have "one song" between them?!

    Everyone's a critic, man.

    As well as having 3 welsh grandparents, I've seen the Manics and the Stereophonics multiple times each.

    I know, I know. My wife likes them, and I like that one song (Dakota). Plus Tom Jones guested at one of the gigs for extra Welsh points.

    I've predicted a 1-0 to Wales on the prediction thread, and I have a 0% strike rate so far.

    As a proud son of Zealand, I'll be hoping for a Denmark win. But should Wales triumph, I'll point to how many Manics gigs I've been to, and claim part if that victory too.

    A shame meanwhile I only just learned randomly via Sporting's post on the 1968 Euros that the Wales-Italy match the other day was for the Unofficial Football World Championship:
    https://twitter.com/UFWC_Football/status/1406538729972551684

    That was the first Welsh challenge for the UFWC since late 1988 – they lost the 'title' to the Netherlands via a Ruud Gullit goal in a WC qualifier, having only 'won' it in their previous (friendly) game v Italy before that year's Euros, which was itself amazingly the only time they'd been in the mix for it since 1937.

    Instead, Italy will have the chance to move into the Top 5 all time UWFC titlists (ranked by defences of the crown) if they can beat Austria.
    As I mentioned on the Groundhopper thread (which I can't blame non-obsessives for not following), you were "awarded" a badge for attendance at the match that in my nervous and befuddled state completely confused me ;
