Hot Euro player of the day: Theodor Gebre Selassie (Czech Republic)

UPDATE: Gebre Selassie is moving up in the world. Impressed with his performance at the Euro Cup, Werder Bremen has signed him on a four-year contract.

25-year-old Theo has been in the news a lot lately for being the target of racist taunts from Russian fans on Day 1. Half Ethiopian, he’s the only black player to play for the Czech Republic. Ever. I am appalled that racism is as common as it is in football today, and firmly believe that the best way to wipe it out is for EVERYONE to show that it won’t be tolerated. That being said, I admire Gebre Selassie’s ability to shrug it off and to kick ass on the pitch.

And that’s why he SHOULD be in the news. Theo has proven to be invaluable to his team, both as a defender (what, are you surprised?) and up front. He plays for Slovan Liberic back home in the Czech republic – and has perfect teeth.
