Injuries form a brutal reality of football that every player hopes to avoid as much as possible but for Arsenal's Abou Diaby, a background plagued by injuries is now only powering a redemption mission.

Unlike other games where the implications take time to sink in, losing at Wembley has its particular horrors. As the infernal shuffle towards Wembley Park tube grinds on, there's nowhere to go.

Incredible, unexpected, overdue and overwhelming, Toronto filled the net in the second half in Montreal. They put three past Donovan Ricketts and looked like they owned the place. The Montreal fans sure hated the Toronto treatment. Make that the "incredibly rare in 2012 Toronto treatment".
