Apart from his absurd haircut, he has now also gone for a fully-grown ginger beard aswell, he looks grotesque.

There is a lot young footballers must learn, especially coming up at a big club in a big city like Atletico Madrid, but one lesson that should go without saying is not to shop in your local rival's club store. And if you do, just don't stop to take pictures while you're still inside it.

Highly touted 17-year-old Atletico Madrid midfielder Oliver Torres did both of those things when he stopped by the Santiago Bernabeu to buy a pair of boots at the Real Madrid shop days after making his first team debut for Atletico.

Napoli beat Juventus 2-0 in the Coppa Italia final to spoil the end of Juve's undefeated season and finish Alessandro Del Piero's Bianconeri career on a sour note. For Napoli's Marek Hamsik, who sealed the win by scoring the second goal in the 83rd minute, it was also an end of sorts as he lived up to a promise he made about his trademark, powerful and robust mohawk.

Apologies for lack of posting. For one thing there doesn't seem much concrete to talk about: will they, won't they, etc...

Off a corner in the 50th minute Cascio chested the ball down around the 6 on the far post.
