And two of those crosses were too long. Normally that type of cross never amounts to anything. Eto'o and Balotelli did their best to salvage the crosses, the one to Eto'o never really got dangerous but Balotelli did well to get the ball to Milito.I was just watching some highlights on AlJazeera, and Maicon made 3 decisive crosses in the first half that led to 3 scoring chances for Balotelli (the one which went wide of the post), Milito (the one he headed straight at Curci from a Balotelli headed pass) and Eto'o (which Curci saved at his near post) - can't ask more attacking-wise, really. He could have had a couple of assists just like the Chievo match.
He was dribbled by Ekdal in that early chance, though..
He should cross earlier and harder when our forwards have space to run into. Most of Maicon's crosses are either too long or too far away from goal. Alternatively he hits the first defender with his cross. He should be able to do better.
