England's Broad terms Collingwood 'best footballer in team, Owais Shah 'worst'

London, Apr 14 (ANI): England's bowling ace Stuart Broad, a hardcore football fan, has touted team-mate Paul Collingwood as the best footballer in the England cricket team, while Owais Shah has been termed as the worst.

Broad, a fan of the Nottingham Forest football club, said that he has named Collingwood as the best footballer in the squad as Collingwood was a left-winger who always ended up in a poacher's role, The Sun reports.

However, Broad labelled Shah as the worst footballer in the team as according to him, Shah was clumsy with his challenges.

According to the bowler, although James Anderson is also a good footballer, he tries to fight the opponents with too many fancy turns, which results in him tripping over the ball.

Broad further said that although he was not a decent footballer, he loves the game and had played some fun-filled 'epic' games with his team-mates while they were training for a match. (ANI)
