Elevenses - Vucinic to repeat pants trick if he scores against England

Published: 11 Oct 2010 - 10:20:20

Montenegro's Mirko Vucinic celebrated his winner against Switzerland on Friday night by removing his shorts and putting them on his head. Classy.

And the Roma hitman has promised to repeat the trick if he nestles one in the onion bag against England on Tuesday night - in what he says is an historic game for Montenegro's national team.

Vucinic's team now lead Euro 2012 Qualifying Group G on nine points, having won all three of their games, and would open up a six-point gap if they beat favourites England.

"What we have achieved in the group so far is incredible," Vucinic said. "After the draw was made nobody would believe we could arrive at Wembley with nine points.

"I was not being disrespectful with the way I celebrated against Switzerland. Every player has his own style. But we believe that we can beat England and that would be a stunning result all over Europe.

"If I score the winning goal I will not be able to resist producing the same goal celebration."

To more serious matters, and Marseille are threatening to sue Nigel de Jong for the tackle which broke Hatem Ben Arfa's leg. (Daily Mail)

Ben Arfa is on loan at Newcastle, but parent club Marseille are said to be outraged by the tackle from the Manchester City midfielder.

Marseille president Jean-Claude Dassier already has club lawyers working on the case.
