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.
Bibras Natcho, the impressive Israeli midfielder, lines up the free kick – Cudicini positions his wall to the right of his goal, and moves over to protect the left.
Natcho executes it perfectly – over the wall, and tightly enough into the corner that Cudicni has little chance.

But Yes, Bassong was crap
Definitely not so "shocking" coming from Seb... he always seems to put us in this type of a eff'd up situation.
