Tragic car crash

Just learned from the Guardian that Theyab Awana, the UAE No 10 who caused Aziz Behich and Australia so much trouble during the Olyroos qualifying match, has just died after a car crash while travelling from club training. This is a tragic end, not just for a young and exciting talent, but for a promising young man.

Awana's enduring claim to fame include his back-heel penalty against Lebanon, which became an internet sensation.

Our condolences and sympathies to his family, friends and team mates.
