When gamesmanship pays off
Fenerbahçe player Bilica managed to find an unusual way to secure victory for his side against Besiktas. The Brazilian showed Fernando Torres how it is done by digging up the penalty spot before the kick was taken, just like the Liverpool striker attempted to against Manchester United.
Unlike Torres’ failed attempts to put off Wayne Rooney, Bilica’s plan worked a treat. Besiktas’ penalty was saved by the keeper. As with most things in life, the secret to his success was to dig a little deeper. Take note, Fernando!
