  1. Undeniably one of the biggest stars in international football, Cristiano Ronaldo's hard work and will to succeed has allowed him to create magical moments on the field. He might have moved away from the star-studded Real Madrid and his current club Juventus may have missed out in the UEFA Champions League, but Ronaldo remains poised for success in one way or another. At the age of 34, when other footballing greats are considering retirements, Ronaldo appears to be busy destroying careers of much younger players with his skills. The sheer genius of Ronaldo was once again in full display as his breathtaking hat-trick against Switzerland powered Portugal to their first-ever UEFA Nations League final. Nahhh look at this angle the ball is coming in right till the last moment. Another keeper left for dead by Ronaldo. GOAT!!! pic.twitter.com/k5a3uK8K3b — Tejas Nihalani (@tejasnihalani11) June 5, 2019 Overlooked for Portugal's previous matches against Italy and Poland, Ronaldo was handed a start alongside Benfica wonder kid Joe Felix by coach Fernando Santos. In the 25th minute of the game, Ronaldo made his presence felt with a venomous free-kick from 25-yards out to hand Portugal the lead. â¡ï¸ Skill of the Day goes to hat-trick hero Cristiano Ronaldo for this outrageous no-look through ball! ðâ½ï¸#NationsLeague | @HisenseSports pic.twitter.com/aTsHECpxos — UEFA Nations League (@UEFAEURO) June 5, 2019 Ricardo Rodriguez converted a 57th-minute penalty to equalise for Switzerland, but no one expected what Ronaldo had in store. In the 88th minute, Ronaldo pounced on Bernardo Silva's perfect cross and a splendid right-foot finish got Portugal in the front again. Two minutes later, Ronaldo turned the clock back, taking us back to his days at Manchester United where his step-overs and cunning movements made him popular. Stepovers. âï¸ Fierce strike. âï¸ Hat-trick complete. âï¸@Cristiano keen to be in Sunday's Goal of the Tournament vote! â½ð¥#NationsLeague | @SOCARofficial pic.twitter.com/O56wipT46U — UEFA Nations League (@UEFAEURO) June 5, 2019 The third goal involved a step-over, on the run, to deceive his nearest opponent before curling his shot into the opposite corner. It was the 53rd hat-trick of Ronaldo's career and undoubtedly the one that got everyone wondering if this man is actually getting younger with age.

  2. Less than 6 years ago, a young Andrew Robertson from a small town in Glasgow, Scotland led his local team Queens Park to a third-place finish and Playoff appearance in the third tier of Scottish football league. With a spinal injury hindering his football development, Robertson was set to give up on a career in football and join a university program to complete his undergraduate studies. However, he was called up to the first team by Queens Park during the 2012-13 season - a lifeline to his footballing career. Reuters After clinching a Playoff place with Queens Park, Andy was brought to Scottish premiership side Dundee where he spent a year until being purchased for £3 million by Hull City who were plying their trade in the Championship at that time. Promotion in his first season with the club meant that he would now be on the radar of major English clubs. After spending two seasons with Hull City, Robertson caught the eye of one Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool which inspired an eight-million-pound move to Merseyside in 2017. What followed over the next two seasons was neither anticipated by Liverpool nor by young Robertson. Reuters The seed had been laid by 2017 for the direction in which Klopp wanted to take his team and Robertson was exactly the kind of player to implement that vision. A young, raw, talented full-back who could run relentlessly and mark his man astutely. Over the last two seasons, under Klopp's guidance, the 25-year-old has established himself as a stalwart in the Liverpool defence, making him one of the (if not the best) left-back in European football at the moment. Appearing in 36 of the 38 premier league matches played by Liverpool this season, he has 11 assists to his name and contributed significantly to the 21 clean sheets kept by Liverpool - the highest in the league this season. Reuters Virgil van Dijk has often been touted as the main reason why Liverpool's defence has risen through the ranks the way it has this season, but the two full backs; Robertson and the young Englishman Trent Alexander-Arnold have truly made that unit a defensive rock, that played a pivotal role in the Reds' much-awaited triumph in Europe. From a small-town boy from Glasgow who almost gave up the sport to becoming a bit-part player for a local team in Scotland's third division to now UEFA Champions League winner; the journey of dynamic Robertson is the one that continues to give way to young and aspiring footballers who're looking to make a mark in the sport.
  3. Ever since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp at Anfield, Liverpool has grown into a match-winning side that managed to entice fans on the back of spectacular performances on the field. But, despite their attacking might and defensive capabilities, the Reds had nothing for their prolific showing as the major trophies continued to elude them. But, their hard work and perseverance eventually paid off when they triumphed over a lacklustre Tottenham Hotspur brigade in the UEFA Champions League final at a packed Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid. Thanks to goals by Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi, Liverpool won the summit clash 2-0, and ended their Champions League trophy drought after 14 years. © Reuters Their triumph might have come in what was arguably one of the most boring finals in the Champions League history, but the Reds don't care and it shouldn't matter either, given the spectacular performances of Klopp's men this year. Elated to finally taste the European glory, the Liverpool stars were understandably on cloud nine as the celebrations kicked in. Following their win over Spurs, the Liverpool players made the trip back to England from Madrid. And, during their flight, they were seen sharing photos and videos on the social media that garnered a lot of attention. At the same time, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson also shared a photo of himself alongside the coveted trophy. View this post on Instagram Liverpool here we come âï¸ð A post shared by Jordan Henderson (@jhenderson) on Jun 2, 2019 at 2:40am PDT Taking to Instagram, the Liverpool skipper was seen sitting comfortably on his seat, with his legs wrapped around and placed on top of the Champions League trophy during their flight. The same photo was posted by Liverpool's official Facebook page. But, while some showered praise on their much-awaited win, many slammed Henderson for disrespecting the Champions League trophy. Here's a look at how fans reacted to Henderson's photo after Liverpool's Champions League win:
  4. The Champions League final between Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur was a rather uneventful one. An extremely gutsy 'handball' call by the referees in the first minute of the game, gave the 2019 Premier League Golden Boot winner Mohamed Salah the opportunity to score from the penalty spot in the first two minutes of kick-off, and probably made the entire Spurs roster a bit hesitant for the rest of the final, which was evident as the ball barely made it past the Liverpool defence. Credit: Reuters To add insult to injury, substitute Divock Origi sent a brilliant ripper to the bottom right corner of the Hotspur goal that went past keeper Hugo Lloris and into the net in the 87th minute to help the Reds win the 2019 Champions League Trophy. But guess who was the real winner as the two teams went head on to win one of the greatest leagues in the football world? This pitch invader, who leapt across the on-field security and onto the ground, and was finally caught hold of right at the heart of the stadium with thousands of fans cheering for her. This courageous lady, Kinsey Wolanski, jumped over the lines, went past Liverpool keeper Alisson Becker, towards the centre, cheering with both hands up before being pinned down by the stadium security right next to Harry Winks, who looked visibly uncomfortable. View this post on Instagram Did I distract #8 a little too much? A post shared by Kinsey Wolanski (@kinsey_sue) on Jun 1, 2019 at 4:51pm PDT She was obviously escorted out of the field with two security guards by her side, stopping her from celebrating and greeting the audience and was eventually escorted out of the stadium with her hands tied behind her back. She certainly did not mind. View this post on Instagram STREAKING THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE! Life is for living, do crazy things that you will remember forever ð A post shared by Kinsey Wolanski (@kinsey_sue) on Jun 1, 2019 at 4:43pm PDT “STREAKING THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE! Life is for living, do crazy things that you will remember forever,” she wrote in her caption. What is crazier is the fact that before Wolanski made the life-altering decision of invading the Champions League final, her following on Instagram was somewhere in the 2,00,000s but in less than a few hours of the incident, her following skyrocketed to 1.4 million and continues to grow.

  5. In what has proved to be one of the most exciting and competitive seasons, the 2018-19 edition of the UEFA Champions League is now poised for a scintillating finale as rampant Liverpool lock horns with spirited Tottenham Hotspur at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid on 1st June. Both Liverpool and Spurs turned around their deficits from the first-leg against Barcelona and Ajax to script memorable comebacks in the second-leg ties. While a Lucas Moura hat-trick proved to be Spurs saviour, braces by Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum got the Reds over the line. Going purely by form, Liverpool undoubtedly have an upper hand over Spurs and are rightly labelled as favourites to break their Champions League jinx this year. From boasting one of the best defenders in the world to deploying one of the most lethal attacking trio in Europe, Liverpool surely have it all. But, the most important ingredient in their title charge has been their pragmatic manager Jurgen Klopp. © Reuters Roped in after the sacking of Brendan Rodgers in 2015, Klopp has undeniably taken Liverpool to new heights in club football. From reaching the Champions League final last season to almost pipping Manchester City to the Premier League trophy this year, the impact and philosophy of the German tactician has been nothing short of sensational for the Reds. But, as the Anfield loyalists chase the dreams of European domination, Klopp's harrowing record in major finals poses a major cause of worry for Liverpool's title dreams. The last time Klopp won a major final as manager was with Borussia Dortmund in the 2012 German Cup final. But, since then, it has been downslide for the German. Going into this year's final, the Liverpool boss will be eager to end a six-match losing run in finals of major tournaments. Champions League Final (2013) After getting the better of Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid in the last four, Klopp powered Borussia Dortmund to the Champions League final as they aimed to become champions of Europe for a second time. But, their Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich had different plans for their old foes at Wembley. Mario Mandzukic opened the scoring in the 60th minute to put Bayern ahead. But Bayern's lead was nullified by Ilkay Gundogan who levelled the scoring for Dortmund with a clean penalty eight minutes later. The game went right down to the wire and it was Arjen Robben whose finish in 89th minute sealed a 2-1 win for Bayern and broke the hearts of Dortmund fans. German Cup Final (2014) Another season and another final for Klopp and Dortmund. But, just like last season, Dortmund and their manager were in for another heartbreak at the hands of Bayern, only this time it was Pep Guardiola in place of Jupp Heynckes. In a tight game that saw Bayern and Dortmund failing to break the deadlock in regulation time, the 2014 DFB-Pokal final reached extra time. With fatigue taking a toll on players from both sides, it all boiled down to will and hunger - something that tilted the tide in Bayern's favour. Arjen Robben got Bayern in front in 107th minute and it was Thomas Muller's finish (120+3') that sealed a 2-0 win for Guardiola's side. German Cup Final (2015) After seven years in charge, Klopp's tenure at Dortmund was finally coming to an end, but not before one last hurdle - the 2015 German Cup final. With Wolfsburg making their way into the 2015 DFB-Pokal final, Klopp must have been hoping for one last hurrah before travelling all the way to England to join Liverpool. But, contrary to popular perception, Klopp's misery at major finals continued as Wolfsburg stunned Dortmund with a 3-1 win to clinch the title. Dortmund got off to a roaring start as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got them in front in the fifth minute, but the likes of Luiz Gustavo (22'), Kevin De Bruyne (33') and Bas Dost (38') ran riot and washed away the hopes of Klopp whose farewell was marred with a major defeat. League Cup Final (2016) Four months into his stint at Anfield, Klopp would've been eager to make amends for his 2013 Champions League final defeat at Wembley when Liverpool reached the League Cup final in 2016. But, another heartbreak awaited Klopp as the Reds geared up for a record 12th League Cup final. Taking on Manuel Pellegrini's Manchester City, Liverpool found themselves trailing early in the second half. Fernandinho opened the scoring for City with a low shot from a tight angle on the right side of the box, beating Simon Mignolet in the 49th minute. Raheem Sterling had a crucial chance to double the lead for City but his shot it wide. The 83rd minute brought the much-needed goal for Liverpool as Philippe Coutinho scored from 12 yards out. As the match finished 1-1, it all boiled down to the penalty shootout where City held their nerves to seal a 3-1 win. Europa League Final (2016) The same year presented an opportunity to Klopp to salvage some silverware when Liverpool reached the Europa League final. Three months after finishing runners-up in the League Cup, the Reds were hoping to get their hands around the Europa League trophy when they locked horns with Sevilla at St-Jakob Park in Basel. For a team that had brushed past Klopp's former team Borussia Dortmund with a 5-4 (on aggregate) win in the quarterfinals, Liverpool fans were confident that they will finally have something to cheer for. But, going by Klopp's record at major finals, there could've only been one outcome: another heartbreak. Despite taking the lead through Daniel Sturridge (35'), the Reds were outplayed by Sevilla - courtesy Kevin Gameiro (46') and Coke (64', 70') - in a 3-1 defeat. Champions League Final (2018) While Manchester City won the Premier League title with a record 100 points, Liverpool could only manage a fourth-place finish with 75 points for their showing in 2018. But, their fans weren't really concerned, after all, their team was vying for a bigger prize: Champions League trophy. On the back of consistent performances, Liverpool did reach the Champions League final but beating European giants of the might of Real Madrid was going to take some doing. In what began as a disastrous final, Liverpool lost star-striker Mohamed Salah to a nasty injury in the first-half. But, that was least of their worries. A massive blunder by goalkeeper Loris Karius saw Karim Benzema opening the scoring for Madrid in the 51st minute. While Sadio Mane found the equaliser in the 55th minute, twin strikes from Gareth Bale sealed the fate of Liverpool as Madrid romped to a 3-1 win.
  6. The second half of the UEFA Europa League final between Chelsea and Arsenal has to be engraved in the heart and mind of Eden Hazard for the rest of his life. While teammates Olivier Giroud and Pedro provided a solid 2-0 lead to the Blues, it was the Belgian who put the final nail in the coffin for the Gunners when he scored a penalty and a cheeky grounded shot in the 65th and 72nd minutes, respectively. KING. ð@HazardEden10 ð #UELfinal pic.twitter.com/YwrbcSOYif — Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) May 29, 2019 After the final whistle blew and the ceremony got over, Hazard decided to make an official announcement about his thoughts of parting ways with Chelsea, a club that not only was a house to him for the past seven years but also helped him realise his dreams of playing in the Premier League. "I think it's a goodbye, but in football you never know," he told BT Sport to confirm what a lot of us were expecting for a long time now. Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri said: "I know he wants to leave and I have to respect his decision." "He is a wonderful player. It took two or three months for me to understand him as a man and now I do, he's a wonderful man." "He's an extraordinary player. He is a strange boy but when he understands it is extraordinary." Hazard has been phenomenal for the Blues ever since joining them back in 2012. He has made a total of 352 appearances for the club and his two Europa League final goals moves his tally to 110 and 92 assists while winning the Premier League (2), Europa League (2), FA Cup (1) and the League Cup (1). He was also honoured with the PFA Player of the Year award and the FWA Player of the year award as a member of the team. Flooded with emotions, Chelsea fans took to Twitter to show their gratitude for the 28-year-old boy wonder for everything he has done for the club and wished him luck for wherever he plays next (we know it's going to be Real Madrid, isn't it?). 132 seconds on Chelsea & Eden mutha-f*cking Hazard pic.twitter.com/aetZhNWDDh — Alex Goldberg (@AlexGoldberg_) May 29, 2019 2012 - Didier Drogba scores to win Chelsea the Champions League and leaves a legend. 2019 - Eden Hazard scores twice to win Chelsea the Europa League and is leaving a legend.

  7. Ahead of its highly-anticipated finale, popular TV show 'Game of Thrones' had fans at the edge of their seats, clearing their schedule to catch the pilot episode. However, amid all the excitement and, contrary to popular perception, Season 8 has undeniably failed to live up to what its past instalments had managed to accomplish. The unpredictability of the show, that had once captured the imagination of the viewers is long gone, making way for predictable and obvious content. But, that's not all. There have been editing errors and the script writing has proved to be so poor, that it makes us wonder what 'GoT' would've been like if it wasn't for George RR Martin's books. Game of Thrones and Avengers: Endgame have both been on our screens in the last month. They still have nothing on the Champions League. ð pic.twitter.com/IBvNFZnDHF — Footy Humour (@FootyHumour) May 8, 2019 While one of the biggest TV shows continues to fall short on the expectations of fans, a spectacular show by the football clubs in the UEFA Champions League has proved to be a much-needed saviour. The Champions League season gave us the spirited Ajax side that gunned down European heavyweights including the likes of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Juventus. Then, we saw Tottenham Hotspur eliminating Premier League champions Manchester City in the quarterfinals. But, just when we thought we'd seen it all. The Champions League football surprised us again with memorable semifinal ties. How's champions league got more plot twists than Game of Thrones and Endgame combined. — MUUSE (@MuuseAbas) May 8, 2019 The first leg of the semifinals restored some sanity with Barcelona securing a 3-0 win over Liverpool and Ajax coming out on top again to register a 1-0 triumph over Spurs. But, if you didn't see the second-leg ties, we reckon you should pick up a chair and hit yourself in the face with it (pun intended). ððð Inside the dressing room at full-time with our Reds... pic.twitter.com/n8BePcDHfY — Liverpool FC (@LFC) May 7, 2019 ð @Alissonbecker ð pic.twitter.com/vRogUSl13r — Liverpool FC (@LFC) May 8, 2019 In a series of epic comebacks and crazy emotional goals, Liverpool stunned Lionel Messi-led Barcelona after thumping four goals at home (without Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah at their disposal). A day later, Spurs emulated Liverpool's effort as Lucas Moura's sensational hat-trick washed away young Ajax's hopes of reaching the Champions League final. ABSOLUTE SCENES after the final whistle. The emotion from Mauricio Pochettino–a manager who hasn't had the luxury of any player transfers in two windows–says it all (via @btsportfootball) pic.twitter.com/EzldZHhjar — Planet Fútbol (@si_soccer) May 8, 2019 For some, it might seem ordinary to watch a football team winning on the back of a good performance, but for the crazy football enthusiasts like us, this was bigger, better and more entertaining than the abrupt the demise of the 'Night King'. The sheer emotions of the footballers and managers from both the winning and losing sides highlighted what football means to us. It's interesting that Champions League is turning out to be more interesting than Game of Thrones. That shit took 2 years to write. — Mayank Agarwal (@mayankquitenow) May 9, 2019 To put things in perspective, for the first time since 2013, the Champions League final will be without Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. Also, this season's final will be played between two teams who haven't won the title for over 29 years. So, thank you Champions League for the unbelievable season and mind-numbing semifinals, for what it's worth, our life wouldn't have been the same without it.
  8. Cricket needs no introduction in India. The country considers the gentleman's game to be a religion and worships cricketers like demigods. The popularity of cricket can be ascertained from the success of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Currently in progress, India's cash-rich T20 tournament has kept everyone occupied with its fair dosage of matches in the ongoing season. And when the 2019 edition of the IPL comes to an end on 12th May, cricket fans will be treated to the coveted ICC World Cup, slated to begin later this month. While a majority of the Indian population is enjoying the cricket season, some are really tired of its overdose. Whether you're chilling with friends or making those tiring presentations at office, there's no escaping from cricket. Though we can't really do much about the overdose of cricket, the advent of a promising motorsport league in India might just prove to be a saviour. © X1 Racing League India's famed international car racers Armaan Ebrahim (29) and Aditya Patel (30) have joined hands to launch the Xtreme1 (X1) Racing League in India. Expected to kickstart in October this year, the X1 Racing League is a franchise-based tournament that will see eight teams locking horns in what promises to be a thrilling battle on the track. Ushering in a new era of racing in India, the X1 Racing League will be held in a mix of track and street circuits where the eight city-based franchise will be seen using two cars (custom-made two-seater sports car) and four drivers to pip each other to the title. Backed By FMSCI © X1 Racing League The X1 Racing League is backed and sanctioned by the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI), the governing body of motorsports in the country. The league has entered into a long-term exclusive commercial rights partnership with Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI), granting exclusive rights including sponsorship, broadcasting, advertising, intellectual property, franchising and new league rights, amongst others exclusively for city-based 4W racing events and/or competitions in league format. Top Drivers In The Fray © X1 Racing League Talks are on to rope in well-known race drivers including former Formula One, Formula E, Indy 500, Le Mans and NASCAR drivers to the X1 Racing League which also happens to be the world's first city-based franchise league in motorsports. Each team will comprise of one international male driver, one international female driver, one Indian international driver and one Indian domestic driver. Women Empowerment © X1 Racing League In a strong move towards the inclusion of women in motorsports in India and pushing the theme of gender neutrality in sports, female drivers will race along with male drivers in this first-of-its-kind format. Boost For Youngsters © X1 Racing League The league aims to discover India's next racing superstar by providing equal opportunities to rookies and national champions through a platform where they compete with the best in the world. League Season © X1 Racing League Races will take place on Saturdays and Sundays. Each race will be of 45 minutes and there will be 3 races per day, with innovative race formats. Noida's Buddh International and the MMRT in Chennai are the obvious choices for the track venues and the street races will be announced by the founders in the near future. It was in 2011 when motorsport enthusiasts were given a first-hand experience of competitive racing as Formula One Grand Prix came to India. But, unavoidable hurdles - including tax disputes - forced the F1 GP away from India after just three seasons. Since then, competitive motorsport racing leagues have eluded India, leaving the fans disheartened. But, the advent of the promising X1 Racing League is undoubtedly a massive step in the promotion of motorsports in the country.
  9. Two of the greatest athletes of our generation were playing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League semi-finals last night. While the general notion heading into the respective games were already made in favour of both of them, the outcome turned out to be extremely devastating for one. Heading to the second leg of the contest against Manchester United, Barcelona FC were already ahead of the Red Devils by a goal on aggregate when they visited Old Trafford on 10th April 2019. As expected, with the home-ground advantage, Lionel Messi and Co dominated the game from the first minute itself. Being better in literally every stat category there is, the confident squad rolled over Ole Gunnar Solskjær's boys in a 3-0 win. The Argentine legend seemed healthy as a horse, with his nose looking good as new and playing the kind of football he is known for all over the world. Scoring two quick goals in the 16th and 20th minutes, Messi gave his side an early and comfortable lead, thereby setting the tone for the rest of the game. Eventually, a third goal at the hands of Philippe Coutinho also came in the second half. ðª KING Leo ð #Messi ðµð´ #ForçaBarça pic.twitter.com/pjF9FDUTtp — FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) April 17, 2019 However, things didn't turn out to be so sunny for the Italian giants, Juventus, who were taken by surprise by the visiting Ajax FC at the Juventus Stadium. After settling for a 1-1 tie in the first leg during which Cristiano Ronaldo had to work hard to get his solitary goal to keep his side afloat, they looked exhausted and overwhelmed by the brilliant Dutch squad who have been on a tear this Champions League season. While Ajax did manage to knock out Real Madrid, who won the trophy in four of the last five seasons, not a lot were expecting them to force Ronaldo's Juventus out of the league, but thanks to Donny van de Beek and Matthijs de Ligt's brilliant showing, Ajax reigned supreme nonetheless.

  10. Earlier this February, Bayern Munich did relatively well after travelling to the Anfield and restricting a rampant Liverpool brigade to a goalless draw in the first-leg of the Round of 16 clash in the UEFA Champions League. Given Liverpool's form and might, the 0-0 draw had initially tilted the Round of 16 battle in Bayern's favour ahead of the second-leg tie. But, on 14th March, when the Reds travelled to the home of the German giants, the events that unfolded at the Alliaz Arena, broke all myths that people had from the first-leg. Sadio Mane looked at his destructive best, scoring two key goals for the visitors who secured their berth for the quarterfinals on the back of a 3-1 (on aggregate) win. © Reuters The only silver lining for Niko Kovac's men turned out to be Joel Matip's own goal in 39th minute. But, even that wasn't enough to thwart the efforts of Liverpool to progress further in Europe's top competition. If Bayern's hapless performance on a wet in Munich failed to impress their fans, winger Franck Ribery's decision to sport a weird hairdo in the match, further made the butt of all jokes on the social media. For many 35-year-olds, natural hair is an absolute luxury. While some worry about losing it, others are just lucky enough to still have it. And, when you look at Ribery, you know he belongs to the latter category. But, still, for reasons unknown, the Bayern winger made a complete mess of his natural hair. © Reuters His decision to shave the sides and carve a number '7' at one end made him a laughing stock as soon as he stepped on the pitch to face Liverpool. For someone his age, Ribery looked like a kid whose bid to stand out amongst his mates went horribly wrong. Following Bayern's loss, football fans (mostly Anfield loyalists) targetted the French footballer for his surprising haircut. pic.twitter.com/VjvOGay2Tw — airlangga (@gagahyta) March 14, 2019 Franck Ribery's haircut pic.twitter.com/cw9lbEQQ9j — Cardigan Bravo (@Heisenbert) March 13, 2019 Massive respect for Franck Ribery, who paid tribute to James Milner last night by shaving our midfielder's number into his hair, aged 35 ðð¾ pic.twitter.com/obRrL8zdNq — Empire of the Kop (@empireofthekop) March 14, 2019 Absolute hacking bit of kit, this guy! ð — Chris Toft (@ChrisToft1986) March 14, 2019 Pure eye cabbage right there ð — Trev Schott (@shenobi78) March 14, 2019 ð‍âï¸ Franck Ribéry will be 36-years-old next month and he's still getting haircuts like my little cousin...#BAYLIV pic.twitter.com/kf3RL9ohSf — The Sportsman (@TheSportsman) March 13, 2019 Franck Ribéry is going to be 36 next month.

  11. If there has ever been a perfect owner of a football club, it has to be Paris Saint Germain's (PSG) Nasser Al-Khelaifi. The Qatar Sports Investment's president, Al-Khelaifi has left no stone unturned in order to make, what originally was an interesting and ambitious project into a successful project. What he couldn't seem to get his hands on is PSG's luck. On a night when the odds were in Les Rouge et Bleu's favour, considering the two-goal cushion from the first leg and 10 first team players injured for Manchester United, this really should've been a walk in the park, but Manchester United had other ideas in mind. United came from 2-0 first-leg deficit to beat PSG 3-1 and qualified on away goals. It was in the summer of 2017 when PSG decided to get over 'that' round-of-16 loss to Barcelona and signed Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in the same transfer window. A real fantasy manager stuff. These latest acquisitions made the French side look strong both mentally and physically. But as is the case most of the times, fortune favours the brave and last night, it was the Red Devils who proved to be the braver one. Considering this is PSG's second 'they-cannot-lose-now' kind of loss, here are a few similar moments from the two: 1. Early Goal “It's never Mission Impossible, it's more difficult”, admitted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in his press conference. He stressed a lot on scoring an early goal and then staying in the game till the very end and United did just that, scoring the first goal after two minutes courtesy of Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku's goal to make it 0-1 pic.twitter.com/23paOFjNbk — DILLINGER ð¹(@DillanMUFC) March 6, 2019 Wonder where the tactic came from? Barcelona 1 - PSG 0. After just two minutes on the clock, Luis Suarez scored from a defensive mix-up and sparked the historic comeback. 2. Weird Penalty You do need a bit of luck when you're trying to accomplish such mammoth tasks. Not taking anything away from Manchester United and Barcelona, but the penalties given against Presnel Kimpembe and Thomas Meunier were both a little bit harsh. Man United had VAR to thank for the penalty, whereas the referee consulted his assistant before giving the penalty to Barcelona which he denied initially, in 2017. Marcus Rashford's historic winning penalty is even better with Titanic music! pic.twitter.com/ZSRrScw47O — The Man Utd Way (@TheManUtdWay) March 7, 2019 3. Late Late Goal © Reuters Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was one of the major personalities in that era of 'Fergie Time'. The man, who himself knows a thing or two about late goals, saw his team score one thanks to the winning penalty from Marcus Rashford. © Reuters This time, it was Marcus Rashford and the last time, it was Barcelona's academy graduate Sergi Roberto who was found perfectly by Neymar's lofted pass and broke Parisian's hearts. 4. Historic Wins The thing both the games had in common was the 'No-One-Has-Ever-Done-That' factor. For Manchester United, no team had ever overturned a 2-0 home leg defeat in order to qualify. Whereas for Barcelona, no team had ever qualified after losing the first leg away from home 4-0. To everybody's surprise, these teams did the impossible. As for PSG, the project they have and are working on is really an enticing one. Their owner can buy anything, any player, any facility in the world. What we really want to recommend them is to buy some luck as well. As it turns out, PSG is the Tottenham of the Champions League.
  12. “Let him go if he wants to! We have Gareth Bale to lead us to victory,” they said less than a year ago when former Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo decided to sign with Juventus in July of 2018, to play in Italy for a massive €100 million contract. 8 months since Ronaldo bid adieu to Spain and Los Blancos have found themselves in one of the biggest slumps of their entire history. Losing badly to Amsterdamsche Football Club Ajax (AFC Ajax) in the round of 16 matchup, the Luca Modric-led team was knocked out of the Champions League in a 1-4 (3-5 on aggregate) goals defeat. Dreams DO come true! ð¤¤#UCL #reaaja pic.twitter.com/TOmJcGz824 — AFC Ajax (@AFCAjax) March 5, 2019 While the Dutch football club were nearly perfect during last night's showdown, the spotlight was drawn on the unbelievably disappointing end of the Champions League reign of Real Madrid who were not only the most recent trophy holders, but also have seen the most success in the history of the annual club football competition with 13 titles in total. However, the player who came under the bus during yesterday's shameful loss was the Wales international Gareth Bale, who started the match sitting on the bench but entered the game in just 30 minutes after Lucas Vazquez suffered an injury. Bale, who hasn't scored at home for Los Blancos at home this year, suffered to find the net yet again and despite shooting for the post once, failed to impress the Real Madrid fans. To make things worse, Bale, who has the infamous reputation of being injury-prone, twisted his ankle while going for a header and ended up on the grass, crying in pain. Not good for Bale #waleswatch pic.twitter.com/Wz9J0PqO4D — James Holt ó §ó ¢ó ·ó ¬ó ³ó ¿ (@james_scfc88) March 5, 2019 His 'okay-ish'(?) performance was not appreciated by the people of Madrid who even went on to vote the 29-year-old as the worst Real Madrid player to play in yesterday's Champions League loss. Such stark difference in the performance of an organisation like Real Madrid, who looked more like a middle-order team this season instead of the champions they were, led to people speculating the absence of Ronaldo's brilliance that he used to bring to the table as the reason behind Real's downwards spiral and how Gareth Bale has failed to fill the Portuguese's shoes.

  13. Winger Gareth Bale was making a name for himself as somewhat of a bench warmer in the recent weeks as his club, Real Madrid had been undergoing one of the worst stints in the history of their existence. The players looked unhappy, the manager looked frustrated and the disappointed fans were on the verge of a riot when last night, in a do-or-die kind of a situation for Los Blancos, the Amsterdamsche Football Club Ajax (AFC Ajax) handed them a cruel 4-1 defeat, making them lose 3-5 on aggregate, and knocking them out of the Champions League at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, the home to Real Madrid players. Things particularly went out of hand for Bale who, in what has become more of a trend lately, started the game sitting on the substitution bench. However, the Welsh did lace up his boots and entered the field within 30 mins of play time as Lucas Vazquez went down with an injury. Not good for Bale #waleswatch pic.twitter.com/Wz9J0PqO4D — James Holt ð´ó §ó ¢ó ·ó ¬ó ³ó ¿ (@james_scfc88) March 5, 2019 Bale's average performance, which also included a shot at the post (but no goals), failed to impress the people of Madrid who voted him as the worst Real Madrid player during last night's heartbreaking defeat. According to the Spanish publication, Marca, who put to vote the performance of the 14 Los Blancos superstars, Bale received a total of 1,100+ Down Votes while only being able to garner 199 Up Votes. On the other hand, the current Ballon d'Or holder Luca Modric was voted the best Real Madrid player. Courtois, Nacho (Red Card) and Kroos ranked 11th, 12th and 13th worst just ahead of the Wales international. The collective heat towards the winger follows a rant by Bale's personal agent Jonathan Barnett. "This generation of Real fans will be talking about Gareth's goals for years to come. Frankly, they should be ashamed of themselves... Gareth deserves the greatest of respect. The way the Real fans have treated Gareth is nothing short of a disgrace,” expressed Barnett in a recent interview with Sky. “In the six years he has been in Spain, he has won everything. He's one of the best players in the world. Those fans should be kissing his feet."

  14. Treading his way to becoming one of the finest footballers of the current generation, France's Kylian Mbappe is shutting down all those who doubted Paris Saint-Germain's ability to play without their leader Neymar Jr., who is out due to a fractured metatarsal and Forward Edinson Cavani, who was ruled unfit to play with a thigh injury earlier in the week. In what was presumed to be a complete massacre of the visiting PSG against a rejuvenated Manchester United, the 20-year-old Frenchman led a team surrounded by scare stories of the season already coming to an end for them. But despite playing on their home ground, it felt as if the Red Devils founds themselves on foreign territory as PSG charged at them with all their might from the start. Dominating the possession of the ball for over 56% of game-time, the Saint-Germain attack slammed United goalkeeper David de Gea with five shots on target. Despite trying his best to keep ManU in the contest, de Gea was unable to prevent the two second-half goals from happening. While Presnel Kimpembe scored on a brilliant volley on the precise corner from Angel Di Maria in the 53rd minute, it was Kylian Mbappe's superhuman sprint before a top-notch finish on a Di Maria assist for the second goal that drew people's attention. Known to have a top-speed of 44.7 kmph (which was recorded during the match between PSG and Lille OSC, Mbappe zoomed past United defenders Eric Bertrand Bailly and Victor Lindelöf and covered a little over 37 yards in less than four seconds for the finish. Mbappe with his pace nets another goal for the French side. pic.twitter.com/Z1mkU12s56 — BOLUð (@beespeakz) February 12, 2019 This was the 20-year-old's 14th Champions League goal in 24 appearances, which led to the French Forward matching the legendary Ronaldo's record which he attained after playing as many as 40 games.

  15. Manchester City, a club whose limits can never be judged. Four days ago, they proved their bench strength when they defeated Rotherham with a splendid margin of 7-0 in the FA Cup third round. And just when people thought that was it, they decided to take their game a notch up in the semi-final (first leg) of the Football League Cup, where they showcased their blistering attack in a win against Burton by 9-0, which has almost cemented their position in the final of the tournament. This was a game where Pep Guardiola didn't play his actual squad and still managed a win like this, so now we can only imagine what could have happened if Aguero would have played. Coming back to the game, the scoring was kickstarted by Kevin De Bruyne in the 5th minute of the game, followed by Gabriel Jesus, who later scored four goals in the game. Other than them, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez also contributed in the Cityzens humongous win. No doubt all the goals that were scored were equally important, but let's look the top 5 goals from the game: 1. Zinchenko The best goal of the game came as a mistake by the defender, O. Zinchenko, where while intending a cross to Jesus, he looped the ball over Burton's keeper, Collins, and got his name on the scoresheet. The best mistake one could wish for. And later, the basketball dunk celebration was in itself a unique one. 2. De Bruyne Kevin De Bruyne, known for his bullet shots outside the box, took everyone by surprise when he opened the scoring with a header from an assist provided by David Silva in the 5th minute of the game. De Bruyne simply got between two Burton defenders and heads David Silva's deep delivery out of Collins' reach into the bottom corner from a distance of eight yards. 3. Gabriel Jesus (57') Right back after the half time, City came up with another wonderful attack which they later converted into a goal. The real play began when Mahrez played a one-two with David Silva and dinked the ball into the air for Jesus to direct the header into the bottom corner. The Brazilian couldn't find a better way to complete his hat-trick. 4. Gabriel Jesus- (65') Being the star of the night, Jesus had already proven his worth and with his fourth goal, he might just have cemented his place in the permanent playing XI. Talking of the goal, an accurate lob ball by Mahrez in the middle straight towards Sane on the left wing, who after brilliantly controlling it in the box, cut back and picked out Jesus who again tapped it in for the goal. 5. Kyle Walker Sometimes, a simple tap in goal can also look so gracious, just like this one. Just when everything seemed quiet for a while, Mahrez drove himself forward and squared the ball to right-back Walker, who steered it past Collins for his first goal of the match. City made it look so easy, maybe because it was actually easy as by that time, Burton's defence had just given up.
  16. We all know how great a player Cristiano Ronaldo is. I mean, I constantly keep hearing about his achievements, even though I don't know anything about football. And, to prove it even more, he's now the first player in the history of football to achieve a hundred Champions League wins! A few months ago he made headlines after becoming a part of Juventus and he's made a new club record by securing a last 16 spot in the UEFA Champions League for the fifth year in a row. The star player obviously helped in scoring the important match-winning goal. But, it wasn't just a club record; the night also marked Ronaldo's 100th Champions League win, beating none other than Lionel Messi to the record. Speaking of the Ronaldo effect on the team, Allegri told Sky Sport Italia, “Cristiano Ronaldo? He gives us a lot of confidence and he helps us achieve the results that we want. We have been doing much better and we have been improving all year long.” Everyone's obviously excited about this achievement and expressed it on Twitter. 1ï¸â£st player to claim ð¯ @ChampionsLeague victories!

  17. For a man who broke a million hearts at Stantiago Bernabeu after completing a 100-million-euro move to Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo didn't really enjoy the start many would have expected him to at the Old Lady club. The Portuguese initially struggled to find the back of the net, going goalless in 320 minutes across three games before eventually breaking the drought with a brace against Sassuolo. Since then, Ronaldo has scored seven goals for Juventus in the Serie A. But, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner still wasn't able to break the duck with his new club in the UEFA Champions League. His maiden goal for Juventus in the Champions League finally came on 8th November when his club hosted Manchester United in the Group H clash. WHAT A GOAL FROM CRISTIANO RONALDO ð³ pic.twitter.com/9oypBzYY7u — LewisMcinnes (@TheLewisMcinnes) November 7, 2018 Scoring his 8th goal in 14 matches across all competitions for Juventus, Ronaldo capitalised on a beautiful long-ball from teammate Leonardo Bonucci in the defence. The Portuguese, in the 65th minute, made a perfect forward run into United's 18-yard-box before hitting an inch-perfect volley to put the ball past goalkeeper David de Gea. While the stunning strike brought the Allianz stadium on its feet, it also instigated an animated celebration from Ronaldo himself. The 33-year-old rushed to the left corner before unveiling his chiselled abs in front of the home crowd. While his happiness didn't last long as Juan Mata's strike in the 86th minute and Alex Sandro's own goal in the 90th minute saw United snatching a late 2-1 win, Ronaldo's brilliant volley still was too good for the football fans to ignore.

  18. Arguably the most prestigious club competition in the footballing world, the UEFA Champions League, over the years, has lived up to its hype by offering some of the most exciting clashes and sublime performances in the sport. With some of the world's biggest football clubs fighting for European domination, the tournament often brings unexpected results to the fore. And, the second week of this year's UEFA Champions League groupstage has proved to be no different. The group games on Matchday 2 witnessed surprising results, where some of the prominent campaigners stuttered to get over the line. The likes of Bayern Munich and Manchester United were held to a draw by Ajax and Valencia respectively. On the other hand, last season's finalists Real Madrid and Liverpool were stunned (0-1) by CSKA Moscow and Napoli respectively. While the unexpected results last night surprised everyone, there were also some brilliant goals that elated the football fans. From Ivan Rakitic's stunning volley for Barcelona to Arnaut Danjuma's screamer for Club Brugge, here's a look at the top 5 goals from the UEFA Champions League last night: Ivan Rakitic (Barcelona vs Tottenham Hotspur) Ivan Rakitic Goal (2-0) - Barcelona vs Tottenham (2018) @FCBarcelona @SpursOfficial @ChampionsLeague pic.twitter.com/K4mnCHbJ64 — GOLAZO (@GOLAZOHDTV) October 3, 2018 Pablo Rosario (PSV Eindhoven vs Inter Milan) ¡GOOOOOOOOOL Y ASISTENCIA DEL "CHUCKY" LOZANO!â½ï¸â½ï¸â½ï¸ Con un pase preciso de Lozano, Pablo Rosario pone a la cabeza al #PSV en el minuto 28´.#ChampionsLeague #PSVInter #ChuckyLozano pic.twitter.com/eUhE4G4Mar — MEDIO DE CONTENCIÓN (@MedioDC) October 3, 2018 Arnaut Danjuma (Club Brugge vs Atletico Madrid) Thanks to Nigerian born Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld's stunner of a goal, both teams to score did come through on @Atleti vs Club Brugge #UCL game.
