Earned It

Lemme tell you folks something: last night's Serie B tussle between Frosinone and Ascoli was a proper street fight. It was tough and rough and not for the faint-hearted. It was in this rumble that Andrija Novakovich put in one of his best blue collar shifts in a Canaries shirt. He was winning duels, on land and in the air. He was winning fouls (and committing a few. He was dribbling around nearly all comers. And finally, at the hour, he broke the ice with a forceful header. Unfortunately, the visitors would concede a silly spot kick deeeeeep into stoppage time and had to settle for a point. Harsh.
