FABIO Cannavaro shines on his home debut for Al-Ahli Dubai:
You have to wonder about the quality of a league in which a leggy old defender like Cannavaro is allowed the time and space to play like Adel Taarabt on speed, but hey, it’s still a very nice pass. And did you notice that Fabio didn’t go to congratulate scorer Ahmed Khalil? He’s lifted the World Cup, goddamnit, and is much too big a name to actually go over and say ‘nice one team-mate’.
True fact that you probably already know: Al-Ahli’s babies are managed by David O’Leary.
