Just spotted this. High praise for Bobby Zamora from last night’s two goal hero Clint Dempsey.
Bobby does a great job up there, allowing everybody else to get involved in the play. He’s a forward who will get a lot of assists for his team-mates, it’s great when he scores goals as well but he also gets confidence from his ability to bring everybody into the game.
I don’t mind playing up there as well, I had a few chances and I enjoyed it. But wherever the team needs me to play I’m more than happy to play – whether it’s up top or on the left.
Those comments are especially relevant in light of last night when Bobby worked his socks off to be a threat up front and bring others into play, before taking a hefty clout from Chris Samba and having to come off. His clever interplay helped Erik Nevland find space for the vital goal too.
