Bopp Was Clever For The Goal
Dario Gradi has praised Eugen Bopp's ability after opening his Crewe Alex goal account against Huddersfield Town.
Bopp won a 50/50 tackle with the keeper outside the penalty area after a long ball up field, and Dario says there was more to it than a lucky bounce for Bopp.
'Bopp did very well for the goal, I don't know if everyone realised how clever he was there. He actually pulled out of the challenge to ride the tackle, and if he had just gone in the ball could have gone anywhere but he actually waited for the goalkeeper to go in to play the ball to him.
'It was clever and the finish looked easy but it wasn't as easy as it looked.'
