France midfielder Samir Nasri revealed he deceived Manchester City team-mate Joe Hart in order to score his equaliser in Monday night's Euro 2012 draw in Donetsk.
Nasri was crowned official UEFA man of the match after the 1-1 draw with England. It was the midfielder's strike just before half-time that earned his side a point after another City man, Joleon Lescott, had put England ahead after 30 minutes.
"When Franck Ribery gave me the ball, the England defence was really low (sitting back)," said Nasri. "I decided to take a shot but Joe Hart knows me from Manchester City and knows that in that situation, I normally open my foot. This time I closed it a little bit so I am happy with how it worked out.
