Felipe Melo : I Blame The Vuvuzela For My Own Goal!

Brazil international midfielder Felipe Melo blames the vuvuzela for his own goal in Brazil’s World Cup quarterfinal defeat to Holland.

Juventus midfielder Melo had a disastrous game, not only putting the ball through his own net, but also getting sent off.

Melo said: “I will not be a scapegoat in any way: it’s seems that everything I have done has been negative.

“We are forgetting the good things like the assist I gave to Robinho and the good performances in the other games.

“I know that I share part of the blame for the defeat against Holland, but I know that I gave my best.”

When asked about the own goal, he said: “Julio Cesar called for the ball, but with the vuvuzelas it was difficult to hear.

“Now my only objective is that of returning to Juventus and doing a good job.”
