Fenerbahce: The New Prince of Europe

Fenerbahce: The New Prince of Europe Represented Amongst The Top 10 Goals
By Ozgur R. Nazilli

The group stages of the 2007-2008 UEFA Champions League is over, and Fenerbahce fans are still celebrating the most successful Europe campaign of the 101 year old Yellow-and-Navy Club, which they are entitled to. After all, Fenerbahce collected many honors during this year's Europe campaign, one of which is the "Most points won by a Turkish team in the group stages of the Champions League".

While Fener fans have unofficially named their team "The new Prince of Europe" amongst themselves, it looks like UEFA does not disagree either. Yesterday (14th of December), UEFA released the top 10 goals scored in the group stages, and the Canaries are represented with 2 amongst the 10, an honor only shared by the reigning champions Milan.

The phenomenal volley by Deivid, which marked the only defeat of the Group G Leaders Inter Milan, found its way to the top 10, alongside the 25 meter scorcher from Alex in the last game of the group against CSKA Moscow.

Here are the two representatives of Fenerbahce in the top 10 strikes:

Deivid Against Inter:



Alex Against CSKA:




Fenerbahce is making history nowadays, no-one can really argue against that, and will be continuing their Europe campaign in February. Regardless of what the outcome will be then, Fener fans will remember this year's Champions League with a big grin on their faces.
