IT’S ONE THING to get down on your hands and knees to score a header when you’re playing five-a-side with your buddies; it’s a different thing entirely to do it in an international friendly.

So hats off to Russian striker Aleksei Sapogov who did just that during Sunday’s “B” international friendly against Turkey in Rostov.

Russia won the game 4-1.
