F.A. to review video of Van Nostrilboy's horror challenge

Last updated : 25 October 2004 By Chris Parry
Ashley Cole was the unlucky recipient of a potentially leg-breaking tackle from the Dutchman yesterday which naturally went unpunished by referee Mike Riley.

It will be interesting to see if the F.A. have the bottle to take the correct course of action in this case.

Van Nostrilboy's had no intention of trying to win the ball - It was clear for all to see that his foot was raised quite intentionally - and that his only purpose was to injure Cole.

Riley didn't even book him for the challenge, which leaves the way clear for the video panel to do the right thing.
