Yoann Gourcuff: Pensive In A Polo Neck
We love taking nervous boys under our (pterodactyl-like) wings and er… offering consolation. This is exactly what we were planning when we saw this photo of Yoann Gourcuff arriving in Croatia for Lyon’s crunch Champions League tie vs. Dinamo Zagreb. With the benefit of hindsight, we needn’t have bothered.
Lyon overcame impossible odds and incredibly, scored seven to qualify for the knockout stages. A little too incredibly as far as the French gaming authority ARJEL are concerned. They are reportedly ‘carrying out checks’ on the astonishing result, although UEFA are not planning an official investigation.
