Before the cup final today they sang the welsh national anthem for cardiff and then God save the queen for Portsmouth,but i thought God save the queen was the BRITISH anthem and LAND OF HOPE and GLORY was the english anthem?am i wrong ?If not why didnt they sing just the one anthem if we are suppose to be a united nation?confused.:eek:

if they are going to have singers like Ms Jenkins, they should stick with the Welsh anthem every year :thumbsup::devil:

The FA Cup is an English competition. Welsh clubs are invited to take part specially. That's why there's no universal British theme to the competition, it's exclusive to England & Wales. As for Elgar's Pomp & Circumstance Marches, it's not the national anthem. I was under the illusion that Rule Brittania was the more all-encompassing anthem whilst God Save The Queen was an English anthem.

I personally wouldn't have minded had the welsh anthem was not sung.
However, it was something to hear Hen Wlad Fy Nhaudau belt out across Wembley Stadium.

I think in the end, it was played in 1927, so it should have been played as it was yesterday.
