Google is amazing ...

There was a 2001 movie entitled "Never Say Never Mind: The Swedish Bikini Team"

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0302855/

A "Girl Power" action comedy to rival James Bond and Austin Powers ...  :D

I have to grab my hands of a copy of this film, the plot sounds amazing and most thrilling:
Quote
NEVER SAY...NEVER MIND, the SWEDISH BIKINI TEAM find themselves in London at BUCKINGHAM PALACE receiving British Orders of Chivalry. But first, they must locate and destroy a copy of the infamous Los Alamos hard drive. Meanwhile, HELGA is missing in action in AMAZONIA and gets her Damehood in absentia. The other TEAM MEMBERS think that their next stop will be a leisurely yacht cruise and an appearance at the International Bikini Team Federation (IBTF) Open, where they will be judging the contest. Little do they know that intrigue, adventure, portable nuclear devices, a mutant yeast strain and danger in high places awaits.

 

Die Hard :)

The mutant yeast strain sounds like quite a test for our heroines ...  :D

"The SBT are trained in close quarters combat, improvised weapons and modern tactical warfare methods by the extremely secretive CSD, the Covert Situations Division of the Swedish Military. They’re certified master divers and also qualified as a UDT, Underwater Demolition Team and have worked in conjunction with the British SAS, Special Airborne Service, and a United States Marine Recon team."

This may surprise you but the answer is no.
I mean the FIRST ever World Cup, it was held a long time before Uruguay won it. When they won, it had been taken over by what I think was FIFA or something similar.
You should have known it would not be that easy. :lol:

"The Sir Thomas Lipton Trophy was a football (soccer) competition that took place in Turin, Italy in 1909. It is sometimes referred to as The First World Cup.

Italy, Germany and Switzerland sent their most prestigious professional club sides to the competition, but The Football Association of England refused to be associated with it and declined the offer to send a team. Not wishing to have Britain unrepresented in the competition, Lipton invited West Auckland FC, an amateur side from the north-east of England and mostly made up of coal miners, to take part. West Auckland won the tournament and returned to Italy in 1911 to defend their title. In this second competition, West Auckland beat Juventus 6-1 in the final, and were awarded the trophy outright."

Well done winchester73, that was easy wasn't it!!!.
So next time someone goes on about England only winning it once you can say no they have won it 3 times.  :lol:
Actually that trophy was kept in a cabinet in the local Working Men's Club until it was stolen. I come from that area originally and the story of it is well truly engrained in local folklore lore.
