Sweden Squad Use Johan Wiland’s Bare Backside For Target Practice

In which, as punishment for finishing rank last in a keepy-uppy challenge, Sweden’s reserve ‘keeper Johan Wiland is instructed to expose his arse to the elements while assistant coach Marcus Allback and several of his squadmates pelt shots at his crevice.

Thankfully (at least as far as Wiland is/was concerned) it turns out the Sweden squad are a bit rubbish at this ‘kicking’ malarkey…

Sweden's FA has issued an apology after players were filmed using a reserve keeper's bum for target practice.

The Swedes warmed up for their critical Euro 2012 match against England on Friday by taking pot shots at Johan Wiland's exposed backside during training.

Players initially dismissed it as harmless horseplay that is common on training grounds across the world with midfielder Pontus Wernbloom insisting, ''It's just a game. It's not bullying if everyone wants to take part", and defender Martin Olsson adding, "It's just a fun thing. We've been doing this since we were 12".

But a Swedish anti-bullying charity criticised the stars for their actions.

"They're heroes for thousands of boys and girls all over Sweden and I don't think they should send the signal that this is OK," said Lars Arrhenius of 'Friends'.

"This is the kind of stuff that happens in schools and sports clubs, that people use these types of 'games'. But there are some children who get exposed in those situations."

when Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt joined in the criticism, the head of the country's FA issued an official apology saying that it showed "poor judgement" despite being in jest.

You may have already seen there's been something of a pathetic furore over some hi-jinx at Sweden's training this week. As a punishment for losing a game of keepy-uppy, sub keeper Johan Wiland was detailed to stand facing a wall and pull down his shorts while the rest of the squad fired shots at his bare bottom.

This has caused an almighty sh*tfit in Sweden, with assorted blowhards accusing the squad of bullying their man, and bemoaning their status as role models, think of the children wail wail blah blah.

I think everyone is missing the point rather on this one. Watch the video again, and you'll note that not one of the shooters involved hit Wiland's bumbum, or indeed got anywhere near it.

Thus, the inevitable and only conclusion we can reach is that Sweden are rubbish, and England are going to sh*t 'em on Friday! Huzzah!

How pathetic do you have to be to moan about this?

Glad to hear it's not just in England these morons live though.
