Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores his FOURTH goal of the day against England. From an overhead bicycle kick. From 30 yards away.
Good Lord, that’s just so fantastic it’s almost a shame it was scored in a friendly.
”The only way Pirlo’s penalty could have been better is if he’d had a cigarette in his mouth while taking it.”
Goddamn Andrea Pirlo, what a fucking cheeky genius bastard. Football will be worse off when he retires. May he have at least two more years in Serie A and a spot on Italy’s squad should they qualify for Brazil in 2014.
As for England: that Montolivo miss made it worse because it gave England hope. It’s not the despair that kills, it’s the hope.
The England squad for Euro ‘12 was named today. Here is the list.
Terry picked & Ferdinand out (I would have taken Jagielka and told both Terry and Ferdinand to sit at home). Glen Johnson but no Micah Richards. Stewart Downing, flop of the season in Liverpool. Another attempt to shoe-horn both Lampard and Gerrard in midfield. James Milner as impact sub. Jermain Defoe gets a spot why? How is Jordan Henderson even a stand-by? Why can’t Grant Holt get a sniff instead of Defoe?
This selection really does stink. Trouble is, I don’t know if Hodgson could have picked any better. But this is most of the same squad England takes to every tournament when it needs to do something different.
Right after England’s women remembered they were English and choked the game away on a penalty shootout, I tweeted:
My waggish comment prompted this reaction from…
Cheers, Ms. Taylor.
Breaking development: apparently France’s Louisa Necib (14) is pretty. Pretty enough dudes who I know don’t like soccer are noting this on Facebook and watching the England-France match.
(Not that I disagree, but I’m not exactly watching soccer to scout for dream girls.)
I was watching USA-ALG, but we gotta give some dap to Jermain Defoe for coming up big large for Queen and country in a 1-nil win over Slovenia to come in second in the group.
