Plašil scores for French league leaders Bordeaux


The Czech footballer Jaroslav Plašil scored the only goal of a game between his club Bordeaux and Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday, keeping the former at the top of the French league. It was only the midfielder’s second strike for Bordeaux since he joined them in the summer. Plašil’s international team-mate Petr Čech, meanwhile, had to pick the ball out of Chelsea’s net twice in their 2:1 defeat at Manchester City, after previously going for 525 minutes without conceding a goal. And the injury plagued Tomáš Rosický will be out of action for around a month, after suffering a groin strain in Arsenal’s 2:0 victory over Stoke.
