HEROIC HART ‘IN PIECES’

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

JOE HART ad­mit­ted that he felt bat­tered and bruised af­ter his heroic dis­play in Eng­land’s un­der­whelm­ing 0-0 draw in Slove­nia yes­ter­day. Hart en­joyed his best day of a dif­fi­cult sea­son as the Eng­land goal­keeper made a se­ries of fine saves in Ljubl­jana, in­clud­ing a bril­liant ef­fort to keep out Jas­min Kur­tic’s sec­ond-half header. Hart needed lengthy treat­ment af­ter his won­der save to deny Kur­tic be­cause he landed heav­ily, but he was able to con­tinue and kept the hosts at bay. “It is my best game for a while,” Hart told ITV. “My body is in ab­so­lute pieces, I will strug­gle to get up to­mor­row. The lad has got across and flicked it on and I just did ev­ery­thing I could to keep it out. I don’t know what hap­pened, I have only just seen it now on cam­era – it hurt though. I landed on the frame of the goal.”
