'My dear, a penis and a mountain'
London, UK - 25 November 2007

A British opera singer who sang Croatia's national anthem before their
crucial football victory over England blundered by accidentally singing
about his manhood, British media reported on Friday.

Tony Henry's explicit rendition, delivered before about 90 000 fans at
London's Wembley Stadium, may have helped the Croatian side keep
England out of the European championships by making them laugh and
feel relaxed, fans say.

As he sang Lijepa Nasa Domovino (Our Beautiful Homeland), Henry
mispronounced some of it -- instead of singing
"Mila kuda si planina [You know, my dear, how we love your mountains]",
he sang
"Mila kura si planina", which sounds like "My dear, a penis and a mountain".

One of Croatia's young mascots was pictured sniggering at the line, while
the Sun newspaper reported that players Vedran Corluka and Luka Modric
were spotted looking at each other in amazement.

The newspaper quoted Mate Prlic, of Croatian football magazine Torcida,
calling for Henry to be kept on as a team mascot, saying: "He obviously
relaxed the players, so why not invite him to Euro 2008 to keep the
winning streak going?"

Croatia won the game on Wednesday 3-2 and England manager
Steve McClaren was sacked the following morning. -- AFP
