UEFA Champions League - Zenit Saint Petersburg
When Russia was the Soviet Union and Zenit Saint Petersburg were Zenit Leningrad, Zenit played at the Kirov Stadium and the goal nets were a pique of Soviet inefficiency.
Designed for A-frames (such as those at Kyiv) the nets were strewn over the Juventus-like stanchions like a kaftan on Kate Moss.
Like Spinal Tap's mini Stonehenge - supplied exactly to size - Zenit's post Soviet 90's Continental D's look like their goals manufacturer took the Subbuteo dimensions too literally.
