New boy’s bitter-sweet Pompey experience

It’s being hailed as one of the greatest-ever World Cup performances.

Mexico keeper Guillermo Ochoa repelled Brazil’s attacking might last night as the tournament favourites were held to a 0-0 draw.

Ochoa made save after save to keep the likes of Neymar, Paulinho and Thiago Silva at bay.

But where the Samba Boys failed, a fringe Pompey player-turned The Only Way is Essex ‘actor’ succeeded in 2010.

Tom Kilbey fired past Ochoa as the Blues faced Mexicans Club America on their tour of North America.

Kilbey went on to make three substitute appearances under Steve Cotterill before quitting football at the age of 20.

He then appeared in TOWIE and went into work in the fashion industry, before recently been romantically linked with Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan.
