Cha impresses against Lyon

Cha Du-Ri put in a solid shift for Celtic as the team from Glasgow made a late second-half charge to comeback from a two-goal deficit and draw 2-2 in their inaugural match of the 2010 Emirates Cup in London. While teammate Ki Sung-Yong was relegated to the bench, Cha started at right-back against Olympique Lyonnais and found repeated success in tormenting Lyon’s back line with his speed and strength while providing good crosses into dangerous areas. He also came close to netting himself as he launched a stunning volley in the 34th minute, eliciting an acrobatic save from Lyon goalkeeper Remy Vercoutre. Shortly thereafter, the imperious wingback flew down the right again and provided a terrific cross that Marc-Antoine Fortune narrowly headed wide of the post. In the 40th minute, he made another dashing foray down the right hand side of the pitch, putting in a dangerous cross that narrowly missed the outstretched boot of striker Gary Hooper. This would be his last significant contribution of the night as he was substituted shortly after half-time for defender Andreas Hinkel.

    I thought the Docter volleyed straight to the keeper.
    Nonetheless, the site has improved quite a bit.
    I wonder if some of our BS Korea forum contributors are writing for the site? Good job guys.
