The Turkey game last night was what football should be about. Or at least as an England fan it's what i'm used to. One player, usually a standup consistent performer losing the game for the rest of the team.
We were sat about afterwards thinking how good the match was for sub-editors. Headlines were shouting out after this one: 'Turkish Delight' got the nod at a few papers including the Guardian but i think 'Cech mate' would have been nice and harsh.
Why did he drop that ball?
It wasn't even close, his fingers collapsed like they were made out of soggy Frosties; old Nihat couldn't believe his luck. His second goal was just about the best finish i've seen this season. Petr 'Frosties' Cech had no chance.
Perhaps he's just been playing in England too long and is picking up some of our bad habits.
