Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Hibernian sent their ambassador to Turkey yesterday in preparation for their qualification for the UEFA Cup next season and hopefully playing against a Turkish team (however, NOT one from Ankara !).
Hibs lastest recruit, Bamba, from the Ivory Coast represented his country against Turkey last night in Izmir's Ataturk Stadium. The match ended in a 1-1 draw.
Gokhan Unal scored for Turkey after 15 minutes and Drogba of Chelsea scored the equaliser in the 2nd half in time added on.
Bamba, the Hibs stopper, came on for the last 10 minutes and is now 'bloodied' as a full international.
Looking forward to ......... firstly, Hibs qualifying for the UEFA Cup, and secondly, ............. drawing a team from Turkey.
Ever the dreamer I can hear some of you saying !!!
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
