Video: Ridiculous play-acting from Narcisse Ekanga (Equatorial Guinea v Senegal)
The least convincing on-field injury you’re ever likely to see
Good new for Newcastle fans. Demba Ba and new signing Papiss Demba Cisse are both on their way back to Tyneside after Senegal crashed out of the African Cup of Nations.
The Dembas secured their early return with last night’s 2-1 defeat to Equatorial Guinea.
But the highlight/lowlight of the match belonged to Equatorial Guinea’s Narcisse Ekanga, who disgraced Eric the Eel’s homeland with this outrageous play-acting.
Ekanga dives, sits up for a while to see if the ref has bought and – discovered that the officials are unimpressed – then starts rolling around the floor feigning injury.
