Biggest cheat in history
I'm at a loss here. Have you EVER seen a finer piece of acting on the pitch? I thought Drogba, Ronaldo, Busquets, and Dani Alves were the trend-setters, but this lady has taken it to a whole new level. She has cheated the game in the most abhorrent and impressive way possible. Her name is Ramona Bachmann of the Swiss national team...neutral my ass. The offense took place in a World Cup qualifier against England last week.
Let's look at the "attack" specifically. Rachel Brown, England's keeper, clearly took a double swipe at her opponent. A fierce haymaker to the right side of the head coupled with a swift chop at the right ankle sending poor Ms. Bachmann to the floor like a sack of bricks. You would need a special code to pull that off in a video game let alone real life.
Brown should be ashamed of herself. Disgracing her country with such a pre-meditated and vicious attack. She even has the nerve to stand over Bachmann's lifeless body and taunt her, with arms out as if to say, "Had enough?! Want another round?! There's a lot more where that came from!"
Thankfully, justice was served. Brown received a straight red for her actions and has been forced to go into hiding. At least the referees are doing a good job out there.
