Sacha gets the nod! (updated)

I will have another Top 5'er later, but for now all eyes here are on Anderlecht's Champions League third round qualifying opener at Welsh side The New Saints. As far as I can tell, there is no TV for this anywhere, but you can follow along at BBC Radio Shropshire.

Making his competitive club debut, Sacha Kljestan starts Mauves. From the line-up card, it looks as though he will play as the #10 in their standard 4-3-3. He speaks about the contest here.

UPDATE: Just seven minutes into his Anderlecht tenure, Kljestan as put the side up 1-0 at TNS!

UPDATE UPDATE: It's now 2-0 Anderlecht. The BBC announcer says Kljestan is popping up both left and right.

UPDATE³: Kljestan goes 87 minutes as Anderlecht start the tie with a 3-1 away win. Of course, I will post a clip if I can find one.

Too bad there won't be tv coverage, as I was hoping to stream it at work. And now after looking up the Racehorse Ground, I'm even more disappointed. That stadium looks fantastic.

His move is looking better by the day.
