Bibras Natcho’s goal –Bassong sloppily gives away a free kick, and Natcho bends it over the wall to Cudicini’s right.
Unfortunately I’ve not been able to get a full video of the move leading up to the award of the free kick, but Bassong did not cover himself in glory.
Gallas stretched to clear a ball into the box, and headed the ball down to Bassong, who took a touch to control around the penalty spot. Once under control, he should have cleared immediately – however, he took another touch (this time with his right foot) . The ball got away from him and, in trying to retrieve it, he lunged into a challenge conceding a foul.
Natcho executes it perfectly – over the wall, and tightly enough into the corner that Cudicni has little chance.
