In case you’re not up on your hurling, that means he got very, very excited.

A Ghana side who must have been affected in some way by the high-profile departures of Sulley Muntari and Kevin Prince-Boateng are trailing Portugal by a goal at half-time, but it could have been more if it wasn’t for the intervention of their goalkeeper Fatau Dauda.

The ‘keeper made a magnificent reaction save to Cristiano’s Ronaldo header during the first-half and he produced a reaction that is practically obligatory for any inter-county hurler who wins a free during a championship match these days; Clare’s Brendan Bugler being a more enthusiastic celebrant than most.
