THE BIG CHEESE

Did you spot what this fan threw onto the pitch when Switzerland scored their late winner?

This fan certainly thought Xherdan Shaqiri was the big cheese after his late goal against Serbia

Well grab me by the goatee and call me Ronaldo, last night’s clash between Switzerland and Serbia was some spectacle, eh?

In fact, we’re going to go out on a limb here and say it was one of the best game’s of the World Cup so far.

It had everything; late goals, controversial decisions, squabbles, Balkan politics and cheese.

Wait, what?

There was pandemonium in the stands when Xherdan Shaqiri scored his brilliant 90th-minute winner against Serbia, more-or-less guaranteeing their place in the last-16.

The Stoke winger ran from the halfway line before dribbling away from the back-line, before beating Serbian goalie Vladimir Stojkovic and ripping his shirt off in celebration.

We could even coin him ‘the Swiss Hulk’, no?

But as he celebrated in-front of the jubilant Swiss crowd, eagle-eyed television viewers spotted something yellow and wheel-shaped thrown down from the stands.

That’s right, someone had actually thrown a whole, giant wheel of Swiss cheese onto the pitch in their excitement.

My word, we love this World Cup.

It’s gotta be said though, it’s certainly not the most bizarre thing we’ve seen thrown onto a football pitch.

Remember when somebody threw a little plastic footstool when Emmanuel Adebayor scored against Arsenal for Man City?

“Missed me!”

Or how about the infamous pig’s head Barcelona fans threw at Luis Figo after he swapped the Nou Camp for Real Madrid?

Seriously, how are people getting this stuff into the stadium?
