When the Czech Republic first take to the field against Russia, on 8 June, many of their fans may be worrying just where their goals are going to come from. Michal Bilek's side only found the net on 12 occasions, despite conceding just eight in a successful qualifying campaign.
The concern can be found in a lack of a reliable goal scorer.

This is the Anzhi rap video starring Samuel Eto’o and Roberto Carlos

Dirty Tackle at related • 0 views

Like Liverpool before them, money-enriched Russian club Anzhi needed a rap song about them. But instead of going the Liverpool route and having the players do it themselves, Anzhi brought in Russian rapper Timaro to do the heavy lifting while members of the squad served as video filler.

The whole thing is pretty straight forward, but the best part of the video is manager Guus Hiddink's very brief cameo towards the end.

A few months ago, it looked as though Manchester United were set to lose their brightest young talents, with Ravel Morrison and Paul Pogba reportedly looking for more money elsewhere.

Since then, it appears as though Morrison wasn't offered a new contract, with United becoming fed up with his failure to attend training and drama that followed him, whilst Pogba has been given a chance with the first team.

RvP credits substitution for Man Utd win

Manchester United forward Robin van Persie believes that the introduction of Paul Scholes and not his hat-trick was the main reason why the Red Devils came from behind to beat Southampton 3-2 yesterday.

Van Persie scored United's first equalizer minutes following Rickie Lambert's early opening goal and even after Morgan Schneiderlin restored the Saints' advantage, the Dutchman added two late goals to secure all three points for Sir Alex Ferguson's men.

SBI MLS Rookie of the Week: Connor Lade

Soccer By Ives at related • 0 views



When Thierry Henry called rookie Connor Lade one of the New York Red Bulls' players of the season more than a week ago, the high praise seemed a bit generous. Last Saturday, Lade showed just why Henry and his teammates are so high on the St. John's product.

Lade turned in a Man of the Match-caliber effort in providing two assists in the Red Bulls' 2-0 victory against the Philadelphia Union.

With his current contract drip-dripping away, Arsenal have got it all on to keep Robin van Persie at the Emirates next season. Word is that there's a £130,000-a-week offer on the table, but Van Persie is yet to peruse it, let alone shake on it due to Holland's whirlwind-of-shite cameo at Euro 2012.

Euro 2012: Roy Hodgson’s England choices pay off for the group stages

HE'S SOLVED THESE PROBLEMS ...

1. Created team spirit

The potential was there for England to appear divided in Poland, a legacy of the furore over Rio Ferdinand's non-selection, or even feel undercooked given Hodgson's belated appointment and, since then, the lack of time for him to make a real mark.

At the end of Saturday night's Match of the Day, crisp-hawker and master of the bland, Gary Lineker, decided to push his own presenting skills to daring new limits by including an 'hilarious' Arsene Wenger impersonation.

Tinged with what could be construed as a hint of xenophobia as well as what seemed like a fair amount of bitterness, Lineker's little comedy cameo seemed rather out of place on the programme.

Lets characterize this match as one that you would not choose to introduce anyone to the sport of soccer. It was a match thick with overall incompetence and incoherence. Still in those misconstrued passes there was something oddly compelling in the same train-wreckish way Sarah Palin flunks the most basic of foreign policy questions.

It was only by the time Cristiano Ronaldo managed to score his second goal for the night, to make it 2-0 for Real Madrid that I finally managed a sigh of relief. ‘This wasn't going to end up like those matches' – I thought, recalling our slip-ups against Valencia and Getafe. There would be no freakish, frantic comeback for the opponent and no moments of panic for our boys – just absolute control of the match and further questions if we can manage a 3rd , 4th, 5th goal and so on.

There is not enough time to discuss the delightful "coincidence" of Christoph Daum being their coach, either.
