Barcelona vs Manchester United 0-0

Posted on April 25, 2008. Filed under: UEFA, Video | Tags: , , , , , |

So the first leg of the Barcelona vs Manchester United Champion’s League semi-final ended up a draw with no goals scored. It wasn’t the most exciting match I’ve seen but it had some moments of good action and controversy. Main one being Milito’s handball in the area that earnt Man U a penalty. Unfortunately C. Ronaldo smacked it into the crossbar and missed a golden opportunity to grab an away goal. There were quite a few other penalty appeals throughout the match but the game was mostly controlled by Barca, problem is, Eto’o was doing everything wrong. He wasted chance after chance after chance. Even worse than Eto’o was his coach who brain-farted twice to substitute the wrong people.

First he took off Messi at about the hour mark and although he had only recently been back from injury and will be needed in the return leg, he didn’t look tired and was the best player on the park. He brought in the youngster Bojan but he’s not quite ready for the big stage. Then Deco went for Henry. Deco was also playing well and it should’ve been Yaya that went to allow for another attacker.

Oh well, at least C. Ronaldo flopped again in a big match. He still doesn’t have what it takes when push comes to shove. So annoying how he complained about everything and looked up at the sky for answers. Very ugly traits for such a gifted player. The return leg should be excellent though. Enjoy the highlights below.

Africa cup of nations action

Posted on January 31, 2008. Filed under: International, Video | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Thought I’d chuck up some highlights from the African cup of nations that is currently being played in Ghana. It’s a really entertaining competition to watch and isn’t always given enough coverage. The pressures of club competition and strict tactics don’t apply here, it’s all about that audacious run past several defenders or that rocket shot from 30 yards plus outside the box.

Ivory Coast vs Mali (3-0)

Goals scored by Drogba (9), Zoro (54) and Djakpa (86).

Cameroon vs Sudan (3-0)

Goals scored by Eto’o (28 pen), Ali Elkhidir (34 o.g.) and Eto’o (90).

Nigeria vs Benin (2-0)

Goals scored by Obi (53) and Yakubu (86).

Ghana vs Morocco (2-0)

Goals scored by Essien (26) and Muntari (45)
