Summing up the midweek Champions League action for Al Jazeera – we’ll say that again, AL JAZEERA – host Gary Lineker was suddenly struck by the compulsion to refer to Montpellier pair Karim Ait-Fana and Younes Belhanda’s Muslim prayer goal celebration – made popular over here by the likes of Demba Ba – as ‘eating grass’…

Once again, AL JAZEERA.
