Video: Hamburg knocked out of Uefa Cup by a ball of paper
Cheer up, Chelsea fans. At least you have a living, breathing (despite the threats) human being to vent your hatred towards. Supporters have Hamburg have been forced to lay the blame for their European exit with a humble ball of paper.
Defender Michael Gravgaard was lining up a simple backpass to his keeper when the ball kicked up off a ball of paper on the pitch, causing him to slice the ball behind for a corner.
From the resulting corner Werder Bremen’s Frank Baumann scored the diving header which would ultimately put his side through on away goals!
I don’t know who threw that paper onto the pitch, but depending on who they support they are probably feeling either very stupid or very proud this morning.
