As much as England owed their 0-0 draw with Brazil to a resolute all round team performance, it is impossible to ignore the standout performance of young Joe Gomez.
The Liverpool defender who has been making waves at club football this season, marked his first international start with a very impressive performance against the offense-heavy Brazilians.
Gomez was outstanding at the back tirelessly putting in the work and the tackles to ensure another clean sheet for the Three Lions.
Gomez also provided what was one of the more exciting moments of the match when he executed an inch-perfect sliding tackle on Paulinho that just about epitomised his unreal passion and desire for the game. Check it out below –
While the sight of a foreign player doing a presser in English might not come across as something noteworthy, an English player doing the same in a foreign language is certainly a moment of rarity and real intrigue.
This was just what conspired when England international Eric Dier chose to do an interview in Portuguese following England’s 0-0 draw with Brazil on Tuesday.
Dier who grew up in Portugal was seen fluently responding to the post-match presser queries in Portuguese and the exhibition of the bilingual ability from the Spurs midfielder sure did leave a lot of people impressed.
Not surprising considering the rarity of such incidences from English players. Check out the interview below –

Better known for his excellent dependable displays at the back of the team, Liverpool midfielder cum defender James Milner showed that despite his advancing years, he comes equipped with a deadly arsenal of tricks as his Reds teammates realized in a recent training session.
In a rondo training routine, Milner was spotted effortlessly spraying the passes to his team-mates huddled up in a circle while also shrugging the challenges of two team-mates trying to win the ball.
Impressive as his quick feet and change of direction were, Milner was also seen taking hilarious shots at his teammates who were chasing the ball throughout the routine.
Check out the funny video from Liverpool’s training session pre Southampton below:
Having assembled a team of world beaters on the pitch, Tottenham seem to be doing just the same off the pitch as the club unveiled their two new additions to their star collection of international chefs that will be offering their cuisine on the On Four-premium suites and lounges that will be catering a wide variety of signature dishes to the fans on matchdays.
Announcing the addition of new chefs Bryn Williams and Dipna Anand, Tottenham also released new CGI images of the premium sites that will be open to the guests when the stadium opens next year.
And judging by the images, the proposed On Four currently under construction surely looks surreal and astounding comparable to the very best in the world.
With the likes of Gerard Butler, Rod Stewart and Conor McGregor among the many, Scottish Champions Celtic certainly boast a long list of high profile fans throughout the world.
Monday night saw yet another celebrity in the form of musician Jake Bugg join that distinguished list of Celtic’s star supporters.
The singer-songwriter was spotted with the man of the moment Kieran Tierney before his concert at Edinburgh. The duo were spotted posing for pictures backstage and Tierney was snapped presenting a signed Celtic jersey to the indie rock star.
Tierney later took to Twitter to share the pictures of their meeting while also thanking Bugg for the hospitality rendered to him. Check out the pictures below –
Few players can boast to have the envious and almost impossible record of turning up for both Liverpool and Manchester United.
And while former Kop striker Michael Owen made the move during the swansong years of his career, it still served to tarnish his revered standing among the Kop faithful.
Occasionally berated by the Liverpool faithful for his United switch, Owen, now a Liverpool ambassador once again came under a lot of criticism from the fans when he revealed that he was desperate for Manchester United to sign him back in 2009.
Speaking on a French TV show, Owen revealed how grateful & thankful he was to be able to join Man United.
Needless to say, fans were not so impressed with an ambassador of the club talking about his desperation to join one of the club’s greatest rivals.
Didn't think it was possible to hate even more the fact Michael Owen is LFCs ambassador, how the club can watch him express how desperate he was to play for Utd & do nothing is beyond me
With football fans around the world reeling under the long international break, Celtic TV released their latest episode of the ‘All About’ series, this time featuring one of the club’s talismans in Kieran Tierney.
The 20-year-old who has widely been tipped to become a future Celtic captain was on hand to answer a series of questions posed and he sure did live up to his billing as a role model for young professionals with his answers.
Togetherness at Celtic along with the appreciation for the fans were some of the more poignant answers spoken by Tierney while on a lighter side he did also mention his favourite movies, Connor McGregor, Steven Gerrard’s autobiography and steaks!!
Despite leaving Arsenal for Liverpool in the final days of the summer transfer window, English midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain still seems to be struggling to leave Arsenal behind.
The 24-year-old was recently spotted on Instagram still sporting his former club’s merchandise. And while Ox did not really post the pictures of himself in Arsenal colors, a snap of him in the Arsenal joggers made its way into social media via his girlfriend Perrie Edwards’ Instagram story.
Fans as always were quick to notice the headline-making Arsenal joggers with the post leading some Gooners to assume that Ox misses Arsenal having struggled so far to make an impact at Liverpool.
Leeds summer signing Ezgjian Alioski starred on international duty as Macedonia recorded an impressive 2-0 win over Norway on Saturday.
While the winger hasn’t particularly been on his best form for Leeds, Alioski took center stage at the international level with his exploits helping his nation to a comfortable victory at home.
A stark contrast to his performances at club level, Alioski was unplayable on the wing as he tormented the Norway defenders at will. His assist for the first goal was a perfect blend of trickery, vision, and technique all combined in a perfect harmony that carved open the entire Norway defense for Pandev to score.
A majestic performance aside, Leeds fans will be hoping that the winger can replicate such performances at the club level. Check out the assist from Alioksi below –
