Samir Nasri Will Not Score Until April

City closed the deal with their 40 million dollar man today, and to celebrate, they had EA Sports put together an image of Nasri scoring his first goal, using the upcoming FIFA 12. Nasri appears to have slipped past Vidic and a very out-of-position Rooney, and City fans probably cannot wait for this virtual scene to become reality.

But wait? City have on their home kits, and the stands are filled with sky blue. As pointed out by a reader of the Guardian's liveblog, City doesn't host United until April 28th. If Nasri's first goal is to come in these circumstances, "either Citeh are very confident of an early Carling Cup draw against United or they don't actually expect their new player to score for them for a long time yet."
