Comedy World Cup gold as Argentina coach almost does a Del Boy

“I think we’re on a winner here Trig.”

THE SECOND-HALF OF Argentina’s 1-0 quarter final win over Belgium was enlivened by some unintentional pratfall comedy, courtesy of Alejandro Sabella.

The Argentine coach was so stunned by Gonzalo Higuain’s miss that it nearly bowled him over. He was extremely close to recreating Del Boy’s famous, Only Fools and Horses cocktail bar fall before he recovered his wits, and balance.
