    Has anyone heard anything about the "supposed" betting scandal that has blown up over the England v Paraguay game?
    So I'm told, there was a rush of attempted telephone bets just before kick off all trying to bet that the ball would hit the overhead screen during the match, and lo and behold, it did. Robinson kicked the ball right at it at one point.

    Anyone heard whether this is true or not?

    Apparently William Hill took several rather large bets from a gentleman with a strange Scando-Italian accent on England winning a dull game 1-0, with no English player scoring a goal!
