Elano heads City into fourth round

Published Add your comment

Elano´s brave diving header proved enough to squeeze Manchester City into an FA Cup fourth round meeting with Sheffield United, folowing a 1-0 against West Ham.

After a superb start to his City career, Elano has suffered a noticeable recent dip in form recently.

But the Brazilian was prepared to put his head in where it hurts, diving between raised boots to settle a tense tussle with 2006 finalists West Ham, netting the rebound after Rolando Bianchi´s far-post effort had bounced back off a post.
