In case you missed Chelsea's 2-0 win against Inter Milan on Thursday (and let's face it, since the game was on in the middle of the night for the UK, that's a lot of you), someone kindly put up a highlight package of the match, including both goals and the Hugo Campagnaro 'tackle' on John Terry that reduced Inter to ten men for most of the second half.
The video does most of the talking, but some quick notes:
- Oscar's touch and finish were reminiscent of that goal against Juventus. Granted, Andrea Pirlo wasn't in the way this time, but the way he turned a difficult pass into a killer finish was right out of last year's playbook. Oscar is cool.
- I suspect that 95 percent of professional footballers trying Eden Hazard's no-look penalty style would fall over. How does he do that?
- I was totally willing to give Hugo Campagnaro the benefit of the doubt for his tackle on Terry, but man, that was just nasty. Especially the little kick at the end once Terry was on the ground.
