Spurs Midfielder Up For FIFA Award
Just a quick one before we get all Monday Night Football up in yo’ grills. London nightclub frequenter and occasional footballer for Tottenham Hotspur, Giovani Dos Santos, has got himself on the shortlist for the Puskas Award. Or in plain-speak: FIFA’s Most Bestest Most Super Cool Goals of the Year award. The effort in question was the one that made Tim Howard look like a right berk in the final of the Gold Cup. While every man, woman and child from Mexico City to Acapulco were screaming ‘shoot, you wally!’ the young man from Monterrey took his time, jinked past the cavalcade of American limbs and footwear and serenely floated the ball over the marooned keeper. Nice darts.
