Andriy Rusol: From scapegoat to hero

Andriy Rusol.jpg
Andriy Rusol being shown some love by his mates. Notice his buzz cut.
Andriy Rusol’s worst 30 seconds in his soccer life was when he committed a silly foul against Fernando Torres, just yards outside the penalty box, and then on the ensuing David Villa free kick, deflected the ball into his own goal to give Spain a 2-0 lead. Rusol looked absolutely crestfallen. Ukraine crumbled 4-0.
Against Saudi Arabia, 4-0, it was Rusol who opened Ukraine’s account in the 4″ hustling a ball in from a Kalinichenko corner. The relief was plain to see in the Ukraine camp with Blokhin going ballistic and Rusol mobbed by his team mates. Ukraine went on to demolish Saudi Arabia, 4-0.
Andriy Rusol: From scapegoat to hero. Another great little story to add to the myriad soccer stories.
