No fairy tale ending for Ellan Vannin

There was to be no fairy tale ending for Ellan Vannin at the ConIFA World Football Cup in Sweden.

After battling through to the final they lost 5-3 on penalties to French side Nice after the game ended nil all.

Earlier in the competition Ellan Vannin had defeated the French team 4-2.

Whilst a disappointing end for the battling Manx side, getting through to the final was still a marvellous achievement, after they started out the 12 team competition as 250-1 outsiders.
