Torino list Joe Hart as “John Hart” on team sheet for his debut

It wasn’t the best Serie A debut for Joe Hart, as his club, Torino, lost 2–1 to Atalanta. Hart failed to control a corner kick, in the 56th minute, gifting Atalanta with an equalizer just two minutes after Torino opened the scoring. Then, in the 82nd minute, Atalanta scored a winner from the penalty spot.

The shaky start to his season-long loan abroad can be blamed on a “John Hart” though, as that’s the name Torino listed on their team sheet.

To be fair, the England goalkeeper’s full name is Charles Joseph John Hart. But he doesn’t go by John. He goes by Joe. That said, I think he’ll be happy to attribute this performance to John.
