    Germany’s World...

    In the end, Germany sailed through the final and deservedly picked up their fourth World Cup title after an unbelievable extra time goal by Mario Gotze.

    World Cup...

    In the end, Algeria were unable to avenge what was dubbed the ‘Disgrace of Gijon‘ against West Germany in 1982 last night, but they definitely proved that they weren’t simply in Brazil for a ride. Against a German side dubbed one of the most flamboyant at the tournament so far,...

    Copa del...

    If there’s one man who can coax the world out of Mario Balotelli, it is Italy coach Cesare Prandelli. Every bad-boy needs a reformist and a believer – a little bit of both – and Prandelli promptly stands in the middle. After scoring the winner for Italy in their opening...

    Brazil Announce...

    Luiz Felipe Scolari announced his official World Cup squad for Brazil today, and was quickly drowned out by journalists at the auditorium in Rio de Janeiro demanding to know where the ‘youngsters’ were. 17 out of the 23 names called up by Scolari won the Confederations Cup with the squad...

    Roy Hodgson...

    Roy Hodgson is set to announce the England World Cup that will travel to Brazil with him on May 12 next week, although it remains to be seen if this will be the final or preliminary squad. Either way, he has issued a stern – and rather hilarious – warning...

    World Cup...

    Brazil are the favourites to win this summer’s World Cup and with good reason. As hosts, they have a distinct natural advantage and it is well worth noting that the home side on average wins one in three World Cups. Beyond that though, their hugely experienced coach Luiz Felipe Scolari...

    England’s Roy...

    We suppose there’s nothing wrong with dreaming, especially if the World Cup is less than four months away. Just ask Roy Hodgson, who admitted yesterday that he often dreamt of England winning the showpiece tournament in Brazil this summer. Yes, we can see the eyes dramatically rolling to the back...
