Heroes of the week
This week two goalscorers. For those who’ve been reading this column for a while now, it’s the “Usual Suspects” as always.
In fact, the German Bundesliga hasn’t even had time to resume from its Winter break, that Luca Toni has already been hitting the headlines. Scoring in the recent Bayern German cup match last week, the ex-Fiorentina striker went on the scoreboard this week-end also, in the match vs. Hansa Rostock.
As for our Spain hero, can Giuseppe Rossi‘s reliability get any higher? For 3 weeks now he’s either provided assists or goals for the Yellow Submarine (this week-end, he produced Villareal’s temporary 1-0 lead from a penalty shot). Too bad his team coulndn’t get past a draw in their home game vs. Mallorca.
A bit of glory for Massimo Donati as well, author of the assist for Caldwell’s 2-0 tally in Celtic’s abundant win over Kilmarnock.
