Update on the little Z

Ok Eamon Zayed didn't win the African Cup of Nations with Libya, in fact he didn't even get a run, but it didn't stop him becoming a hero with one half of the Tehranian sporting population as he came of the bench with ten minutes to go in the local derby.

In front of 90,000 fanatical fans, he scored a hat-trick in eight minutes to enable his team to over come their bitterest rivals 3-2.  Superman or what?

Beats scoring in front of 900 people at the Carlisle Grounds, quite a number of whom are just killing a few hours before heading off to the pub on a Friday night.
