Hart hit the ball in the box after a corner, but the Italian player hit his head brought him back into the box. With this ball the English defense had to cope without problems and bustle, but the defenders to nod, and the ball fell to De Rossi, who turned and Kerzhakoved just wide from six yards! (Who turned and Kerzhakoved a volley wide from six yards out!) ». Rather conditional verb can be translated as "skerzhakovil».
