Mikey will like how sour the Spanish hockey team were about GB knocking them out.
incredibly sour bunch
Ramón Alegre, the captain, was initially too upset to attend the press conference but Spain's coach, Dani Martín, demanded the International Hockey Federation (FIH) speak publicly about the episode. "The FIH needs to take this serious as it's a very serious situation," he said. "It cannot happen that an international official changes his decision twice just because he is surrounded by the opposition players.
"If the president of the FIH does not give a public explanation of what has happened there will be very serious consequences
: so we are in a tournament where there are clear favourites and these countries are being favoured at the tournament. It could have been the right decision [each time] but the umpire has stopped Great Britain qualifying with all the correct honour."
When Alegre eventually turned up he was asked if he agreed with his coach's claim that there had been favouritism. He said: "So everyone can see what happened – Spain went into this match with a dream and they have not allowed us to achieve this dream and we're all very disappointed."
bunch of crying Nadals.
