Here’s the sports page of the Viet Nam News, an English-speaking paper from the southeast Asian state, marking the end of Steven Gerrard’s international … cricket career?

Football is massively popular in Vietnam, and Gerrard and other Premier League stars are well-known there, so what we find most surprising about this is the fact that they’re aware of cricket at all.

We can only assume that the paper is staffed and badly edited by expat Brits, or cricket-playing Asians – you’ll notice Indian paceman Ishant Sharma at the top of the page.

(Insert your own slip joke here.)
