Wahbi Khazri is no Payet


Sunderland new boy Wahbi Khazri grabbed all the attention for the wrong reasons in West Ham’s 1-0 victory at the Boleyn Ground yesterday. The attacking midfielder, who joined from Bordeaux in January, attempted a Rabona cross but was left with egg on his face when it went spectacularly wrong.

The 25-year-old drew jeers and cheers from Hammers fans in the 87th minute when he accidentally kicked the ball with his standing foot, causing it to trickle out harmlessly for a goal kick. James Collins is pictured on camera trying not to laugh at the Tunisian player after his epic fail. Sunderland fans have accused the midfielder of attempting to show boat when he should have been concentrating on an equaliser.

Dimitri Payet he is not!
