Man City beat Red Bull Salzburg easily at Eastlands last night. The match was lit up by this superb goal from tricksy winger Adam Johnson:
Sweet goal by one of the few English players with the self-confidence and skill to beat a man. Oh, and Mario Balotelli scored twice, which has to be a good thing if it stops the Italian bitching for a week or two.
The win takes City into the last 32 of the seemingly interminable Europa League. And as with so many games in this drawn-out competition, you’ll have forgotten about it by the end of the week.
