Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well what a mistake by Riise and for me that is the worst mistake I have ever seen a top class defender make. What was he thinking going for a diving header

If he can't just lump a ball away with his weaker foot then he should not be playing football, there is no excuse for any pro footballer not being able to just simply kick away a ball with his weaker foot.

That own goal is probably the goal that sends Liverpool out of the Champions League and even more surprising was how bad Riise has gotten these days because in 2005 & 2006 for me he was one of the best left backs in the Premier League.
