Turkey and Czech Republic in strange pre-match swap

Posted by - February 8, 2013 - International

The swapping of pennants is, for me, a glorious hark back to the old school, and should be preserved in modern times.

However, Turkey and Czech Republic took things one step further with their pre-match routine on Wednesday, as the picture above shows. They swapped huge rugs (or maybe magic carpets), which just seems crazily innapproriate.

All beautifully twee and quaint, I’m sure you’ll agree.
