Hard Tackle: David James and Sylvain Distin frolic in the sea
Play up, Pompey
Welcome to our new feature Hard Tackle, which will celebrate football’s funny and surprisingly frequent homoerotic moments. On the field of play is one thing, but here are Portsmouth’s David James and Sylvain Distin showing what a tight defensive unit they are. The pair celebrated Pompey’s UEFA Cup victory in Portugal by getting down and dirty in the Atlantic. Good leg lift action from James and nice shoulder clasp from Distin.
