SHADOW OF A DOUBT

ASTRAGAL

There was another significant flaw with the gigantic new Wembley, which may not have been spotted by those fans in attendance. Unfortunately for TV viewers at home, the balmy weather and low sun meant that a large proportion of the pitch was left in severe shadow from the huge stands. It therefore seemed as though Manchester United left wing Cristiano Ronaldo disappeared for much of the game. And no, Astragal is strictly neutral, so that is not a comment on the Portuguese wünderkind's rather disappointing display.
