Vladimir Putin your boys took one hell of a beating

We're not Brazil we're Norn Irn
Vladimir Putin, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Maria Sharapova, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, t.A.T.u., Ivan the Terrible, Ivan the Terrible, Ra Ra Rasputin ... your boys took one hell of a beating!

Back in 1981 Norwegian commentator Bjørge Lillelien rattled off a list of famous people born in England when Norway managed to beat England at football.

Well yesterday the might of Russia managed by the former England manager Fabio Capello came to Windsor Park in Belfast and lost. It was a world cup qualifier that had been called off in March due to heavy snow, but the Green and White Army, as the Northern Ireland supporters are known, enjoyed the delayed fixture.

Huddersfield Town's Martin Paterson managed to get up over the Russian defender and scored the only goal of the fixture.
