Manchester City – the European Flop

It was cagey. The French team incisive, decisive and definitely the better team in passing and quality on the pitch. Manchester City looked terrible as a team, unable to string passes, forget testing the Lyon keeper. There was clear lack of quality decision making in the final third.

In quite contrast, clarity of thought and execution was evident all throughout the pitch for Lyon. It is amazing how a player like Sterling so consistently misses in front of goal. Today, it definitely cost them progress further in the Champions League. Will he be held accountable? I doubt it, after all, the English always get away with it, in this case, knocked out of the tournament!
