Per Mertesacker scored the third of our four goals against Aston Villa in the FA Cup final this past weekend, with his headed effort getting the better of Shay Given. But controversy followed…
He was loudly cheered for his goal – which effectively put to bed a game we had dominated from start to finish. The usual chants of “We’ve got a Big F*cking German” rang out around Wembley, but it’s not something you would expect to be repeated by the commentators.
And that is generally the case, as we never hear pundits or commentators issuing expletives like that – at least not in England.
Germany are clearly a little more lax when it comes to this kind of thing however, as the commentator can clearly be heard shouting: “PER MERTESACKER! BFG! THE BIG F*CKING GERMAN!”

The towering centre-back has made a habit of scoring in big games, despite not scoring a huge number of goals. He has formed an excellent partnership with Laurent Koscielny, but could face stiffer competition in the shape of Gabriel Paulista next season.
