@Kaltio Groups are not treated as singular in most variations of English; you're likely more familiar with American English, in which case you're right. In the UK (and, presumably, Ireland), groups are treated as plural. "The crowd were excited," "The team are doing well this year," etc. American English is the exception to this pattern, not the rule.
