Cry Baby...

In last night's match between Italy and Ghana, only one player could have possibly won the Cry Baby of the evening: Vincenzo Iaquinta.

Brought down by a shocking challenge from behind by Samuel Kuffour (not my description), Iaquinta cried like a baby, his face screwed-up in pain. He rolled around in 'agony' as though he had been shot with a high-velocity hunting rifle from the grandstand. He was hauled off the pitch on a stretcher, yet a few seconds later he was back up on his feet and rejoined the game. In the 83rd minute, he scored Italy's second goal ... and I thought he had just been badly injured?

There, there ... Mummy kiss it better?

Can't the football authorities do something about over acting by these 'enfants gâtés'? A well deserved award though Vinny.
