    Tough review for McKenna

    By TOM BRENNAN -- Calgary Sun

     Man, that is some tough crowd in Cottbus!

     On Saturday, Calgary's Kevin McKenna and Torontonian Paul Stalteri became the first Canadians to play in the German Bundesliga, when they started against each other in the season opener between Werder Bremen and FC Energie Cottbus.

     Stalteri had an excellent game, scoring a goal for Bremen in their 3-1 victory, but McKenna struggled.

     And if you believe what you read on the official Bundesliga website, poor Kevin might not get another chance.

     "Despite his best effort, Canadian international Kevin McKenna's first Bundesliga appearance was less than impressive," the website's story reported. "McKenna led a Cottbus defence which shares of a major part of the responsibility (for the loss)."

     If McKenna had a bad day, he was hardly alone. Kicker magazine rate each player's match performance on a scale of 1-to-5, 1 being the best, and McKenna was among five Cottbus starters who were graded at 5.

     Fellow Calgarian Owen Hargreaves, who made his debut as a sub in the final minutes of Bayern's 4-1 win over Hertha Berlin, wasn't on the pitch long enough to be marked.
