Happy birthday to…us!

The blog celebrates its 5th birthday this month. We’ve brought you football news, rumours, guides to cities and profiles on young upcoming players such as Neymar, Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata (to name but a few) long before they reached the heights they are all at now.

More of the same shall continue.

We’ll celebrate our birthday by looking at this video of Zinedine Zidane in the 2006 World Cup against Brazil. This, dear readers, is how football should be played.
