A Christmas gift

A Christmas gift inspired by England goalkeeper Paul Robinson’s horror own goal against Croatia has helped to boost diplomatic ties between London and Zagreb, it was reported yesterday.

The British Embassy in Zagreb has offered the Croatian government framed photographs of the infamous incident which occurred during a Euro 2008 qualifier two months ago, said the daily Vecernji List.

«We have decided to remind you of the early Christmas gift from Paul Robinson to Croatia, since we believe that was the key moment in relations between the two countries in 2006» it quoted British Ambassador to Croatia John Ramsden as saying.
