With all the talk about the Scottish & Welsh FA's not wanting their players to take part in 2012, it can easily be forgotton that the same applies to female footballers.
These ladies are likely to miss out on what would have been the greatest tournament of their life. Full stadiums, high viewing numbers, could have taken the game in this country to a new level had they done well.
The Women's tournament is not age restricted and would genuinely be the world's best players, yet Scotland and Wales want to have a hissy fit.
Pathetic. I genuinely hope something can be sorted out.
