Definition: Kaita

You all knew this was coming, didn't you?

Any Nigerian worth his green-white-green watched that miserable game against Greece and wanted to empty their bottle of --- umm -- coke against on the screen when that guy... kaita-ed, our World Cup chances.

Yes, yes, we still had a chance to qualify if we had won South Korea, but so what? Technicalities. Shio!
