Manchester City player gets a Brazilian

Manchester City striker Darius Vassell was kindly given a change of nationality by ITV commentator Peter Drury during the Uefa Cup tie with FC Twente. The overlooked England international now faces the dubious task of breaking into the Brazil national side.

Drury said: “Darius Vassell has finished his first shift back for City and has been replaced by another Brazilian, Elano.”

How come he can’t score goals like Robinho then?
