Will Steven Gerrard get him some payback tonight?
Alexander Frei, England vs Switzerland, Euro 2004. Ugh.
The England captain says it’s all water under the bridge now, but at the time he was understandably miffed:
Spitting is degrading. I would rather be butted than spat at.
Or maybe the shame/pain-free solution of just shaking hands and going your separate ways?
After the incident an embarrassed Frei was labelled the ‘Llama’ by Swiss press and eventually adopted two llamas at a zoo by way of a strange apology.
