Euro 2012 Headline of the Day: Job Donetsk

Today’s headline is from the The Sun newspaper about the England-France game from Group D and is a combination of the phrase ‘job done‘ and the Ukrainian city of Donetsk. The phrase ‘job done‘ means something has been completed well or satisfactorily. Donetsk is the fifth largest city in the Ukraine and it is the venue for England’s game with France. The newspaper has played with these words to make this humorous headline ‘Job Donetsk‘, in other words, England played okay in the city of Donetsk.
