Ageless Ryan Giggs pens new one year deal
The 39-year-old, undoubtedly the most decorated player in British football history, will complete his 23rd season as a first team player while his next appearance will be 1,000th senior appearance, a landmark achievement for any footballer, albeit it includes games for Wales and Team GB at the London Olympics as well.
It's so difficult to turn back to football, as Gadsby looks back on London 2012, and a simply
magnificent games the greatest Olympics of all time. What can the England football team learn from
London 2012 and, in particular, Great Britain's incredible Olympians? Plus, it's England vs Italy
all over again as Gadsby preview England's first international fixture of the new season.
It's official: playing for Stuart Pearce's Great Britain Olympics squad works wonders for your
England career. Birmingham goalkeeper Jack Butland, Chelsea's Ryan Bertrand, Tottenham's Steven
Caulker, Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley and Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge are the
Olympians who now find themselves at the disposal of Roy Hodgson for England's friendly against
Italy next [.
On another Gadsby's England London 2012 Olympics Special, Gadsby reports on Great Britain's
quarterfinal exit on penalties (where does that sound familiar?), and the overall experience of the

The US Women face Canada in the Semi Finals of the 2012 London Olympics today at 11:45 AM Pacifc
on NBC Sports Network (Comcast 626, 603 on DirectTV). The United States has come under scrutiny for
the Canadian's claim that their set piece defense is illegal, which is just a precursor to the
excuses issued for yet another Canadian loss to the US.
The unlikely quarterfinal run of Sporting Kansas City midfielder Roger Espinoza (pictured) and the
Honduras Olympic team has come to an end. Honduras seized a 1-0 lead over Brazil, and then a 2-1
lead in the second half on a goal by Roger Espinoza, but Brazil would equalize and then take a 3-2
lead on a pair of brilliant plays by Neymar.
Liverpool are rumoured to be close to agreeing a deal with Swansea for midfield star Joe Allen.

I am literally pressing "publish" as soon as the final whistle blows in this Olympic soccer match
between the combined team of Great Britain and Uruguay, which will determine the quarterfinal

Daniel Sturridge standing up as the game's only goal, and Group A runner-up Senegal is tied 1-1

Despite their 0-1 loss to a resilient Great Britain Olympic side yesterday, the
'selecao feminina' (Brasil women's team) have made it to the
quarter-finals of the Women's Football tournament. However, the task will not be any easier as they
will face current World Champions, Japan.
U.S., surprisingly, had a little difficulty taking care of New Zealand (1-0), who seriously came
out to play like champs. France came from behind (oooh, that's right--2-1) to send Sweden home
crying, and Japan beat up on a lackluster Brazil (2-0). As I type, Canada is proving they save the
Queen better than Great Britain, up 2-0 with five minutes remaining in the first half.
Luis Suarez has hit back at those fans that jeered him as his Uruguay team were dumped out of the
Olympics in a 1-0 defeat by Great Britain.
The Uruguay captain was targeted by fans at the Millennium Stadium on Wednesday evening, having
previously been booed at Old Trafford and Wembley.
But the Liverpool forward was particularly aggrieved by the fact that sections of the crowd also
decided to boo Uruguay's national anthem.
Great Britain secured their first gold medal at London 2012 today thanks to Helen Glover and
Heather Stanning's triumph in the women's pair rowing event. The automatic response of the
internet? John Terry celebration Photoshop work, of course.
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was quite rightly disappointed at booing during Uruguay's national
anthem. But he's got completely the wrong end of the stick when it comes to guessing why he was
booed. The Uruguayan anthem was interrupted ahead of last night's Olympic match against Great
Britain when Suarez's image flashed up on the big [.
Moussa Konate is getting all the attention this week, as the 19 year-old has looked good for the
Senegal Olympic side, and he was the one who scored the equalizer against the Great Britain side
last weekend, and he also scored two goals against Uruguay, and so far has scored all his country's
goals in [.

The U.S. Women's National Team is one step away from a Gold Medal game against Japan in a
rematch of last year's World Cup Final, but to get to that game the Americans will have to beat a
familiar foe in Canada (2:45pm, NBC Sports).
The Americans are a perfect 4-0 in Olympic play, having posted three straight shutouts.
Regular readers ofÂ this siteÂ may have noticed - in the last week -Â a slight drop-off in the

events in East London and beyond.Â With Jessica EnnisÂ et al accumulating an stunning haul of
medals for Team GB, it's been difficult to prioritise the countdown to the new football season.
