Enckelman out to turn shame to fame

Published Add your comment

Cardiff goalkeeper Peter Enckelman hopes an FA Cup semi-final victory over Barnsley on Sunday will help eclipse the memory of his infamous gaffe in the Birmingham derby.

The Finn could not have chosen a worse game to make the most high-profile mistake of his career. Somehow, he allowed Olof Mellberg´s throw-in to roll under his foot and into the Aston Villa goal in a fiercely-contested clash with Birmingham in September 2002.

"It´s still on YouTube now. You can watch it!" Enckelman joked. "It was just one of those things. I will probably have that tag on me for the rest of my life."
