England under 21s are through to the semi-finals of the European Championships after beating Serbia in controversial circumstances. Leroy Lita gave England the lead when he threw his enormous forehead at Steven Taylor’s cross-goal header. The victory was sealed by Matt Derbyshire (or “Durbyshire” according to the American commentator on the video below), who slotted home while being played onside by an injured Serbian player. This sparked angry protests from the Serbia players. More evidence that FIFA and the Premier League need to reach an agreement over the correct protocol for kicking the ball out for injured players.

    they got what they deserved, the racist bastards.

    The protocol is already there, play the whistle. If the ref doesn’t think that game needs to stop then neither should you, just carry on.
    Leave them there until there is a natural break in play.

    I’ve never understood why Derbyshire is pronounced DARbyshire. Or Derby itself as Darby. Do you also pronounce decided as DAcided? Or Delicious as DAlicious? Man, you guys made English, you should learn how to spoken it!

    The problem lies with the yanks not being clever enough to learn how to speak the language properly. Durbyshire. Li-sester square. Fucking stupid.
