Look out world, or at least Turkey. Turkish club Antalyaspor has announced the signing of Barcelona and Brazil national team legend Ronaldinho, to be made official within the next few days.
Did we mention that Antalyaspor already has Samuel Eto'o committed for next year?
He also alluded to a third big-name signing, so let the speculation begin. We think it'll either be Didier Drogba, or someone who played with Ronaldinho and Eto'o at Barcelona, like Carles Puyol or Rafa Marquez.
How old is Neymar?
The short answer is 24, but that's the short answer. We're not here for the short answer. We're breaking it down so far that no one will ever wonder how old Neymar is again. You can thank us later.
In the forested training ground of Zenit St. Petersburg lives one of the most powerful strikers in the modern game. Even fellow teammates aren’t safe from his rocket of a leg during practice, and this video shows why.
Striding past three defenders and a shot at the end blew the goalkeeper straight through the back of the net. A quick apology at the end and Hulk is ready to have another go.
England has done it again. Disappointed that is.
The England Under 21 side lost to Italy this week by 3 goals to 1. The loss left the Three Lions at the bottom of Group B with only 3 points from their 3 matches, and eliminated from the U21 European Championships. Typical of England, to say the least.
Germany and France were tied at 1-1 after 120 minutes of play and tied 4-4 after eight made penalties. Then Celia Sasic made her second penalty of the day, and Nadine Angerer saved Claire Lavogez’s effort and Germany were through to the semifinals.
The game was an especially lively one, with both sides showing the class that made them ranked first (Germany) and third (France) in the world.
France made a grab for the lead in the first minute, but Louisa Necib’s shot went wide.
Musical artist and rapper Jay Z has announced the signing of the first European footballer to his own sports agency label called Roc Nation Sports. German defender Jerome Boateng joins current American sport giants like Kevin Durant, CC Sabathia, and Dez Bryant with the Roc Nation group.
David Beckham and Zinedine Zidane played together at Real Madrid as Galacticos, and it appears that time has carried over into a nice friendship after both international superstars' careers have ended.
June 23 was Zidane's birthday, and Beckham didn't miss an opportunity to pay his respects to his old friend, posting a nice message on Instagram. You probably don't want to hear me talk anymore, or you just skipped this part and went straight to the Instagram post. I don't blame you. David Beckham is admittedly more interesting than me.
The summer transfer market has become clouded by news of Paul Pogba, David de Gea and Ilkay Gundogan as every club across the world vies for their signatures. But, while the deep pockets of Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich could help them land one of these superstars, it's likely that your club will come up a little short. Fear not: there are other top class players who are (lucky for you) overshadowed by the mass media feeding frenzy around the top players.
Scottish Premier League team Partick Thistle FC have unveiled their newest addition to the club. This is not a joke. The weird demonic looking yellow blob below is the new mascot of the Scottish club designed by Turner-prize nominated artist David Shrigley.
