The goal celebrations on FIFA 13 have thrown up this rather unusual effort, which seems to show the goalscorer fraternising with the opposition goalkeeper they've just humiliated. Presumably this is where the phrase 'keeping a clean sheet' originates. Via Dirty Tackle

It's been far too long since the Fire last played a soccer match. Given the fact it was a disappointing loss to DC United, that has made the wait even worse. The Fire are back in action tonight with a lot on the line. Houston is a big, physical team, and the Men in Red will have to battle it out to get 3 points tonight.

Well, not much primer needed for this one. Fire fans' feeling towards New England are well documented, and that should help make Toyota Park a loud and rowdy place tonight. 3 points for the Men in Red could further propel us up the Eastern standings, depending on how the other games shake out tonight and tomorrow.

Didier Drogba had initially kept matters serious when asked about Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes' accusations of him as a player who 'acts' too much on the pitch. However, the departing Chelsea striker has now comically turned the tables such that the joke is on Heynckes.

It was widely assumed across the English media that Heynckes' comments ahead of the UEFA Champions League final between the two sides were intended to derail Drogba's focus.
