How NOT to throw the ball in

For you kids learning the game, here’s another example of how NOT to do things – this time it’s a throw-in. Courtesy of Alexander Tettey from Norwich City vs. Aston Villa.

Didier Drogba got knocked out

Earlier today Didier Drogba got knocked out during the game between Chelsea and Norwich City (3:1) and at first this collision with the opposing goalkeeper looked very bad. Slow motion shows him motionless mid air, right after the collision then bouncing off the ground. After a hospital visit, the diagnosis is a slight concussion, without any neck/spinal cord injuries as first feared.

He’s a great player and I wish him all the best. It’s always hard seeing someone getting KO’ed on a football pitch.
