Well, 92 minutes into the game on Sunday against Morocco, Togo was on their way to the top of Group A. Unfortunately though, the game was to have a total of 93 minutes. All the hope and good fortune that was experienced in 92 minutes was completely undone by a great piece of skill by a Moroccan substitute. A draw that was snatched from the hands of victory, and possibly, the execution of the dream of two consecutive World Cup appearances.

I gotta be honest, if you told me a week ago that after the first game against Cameroon, all Togo would need to do is beat Gabon in their second game to be all alone in first place after 2 games I would have been ecstatic.

Adidas launched the official ball for the 2014 World Cup, called the brazuca. Which sounds vaguely like something Kramer and Frank Costanza would've whipped up. They had models and dubstep but not a soul who thought to change the name to something which sounds less like a brassiere for the ...
There has to be someone out there knowing the market for this. Given that it's the global game and not everyone has a global understanding of languages, hacked pronunciations are the norm. Someone should take a cue from Cesar Azpilicueta and get all footballers to pronounce their own names on ...
Nike's whipped up a nice little promo for the World Cup in Brazil featuring the hosts and it's done without green screen. Swear. Highlights include a Ronaldo cameo, little David Luiz, animated David Luiz, and a Lilliputian Bernard. Neymar's there too, but it kind of just looks like someone filmed ...

Remember Yoann Gourcuff? Tall. French. Elegant playmaker. Looks like he's perpetually wearing eyeliner and his soul an anvil. That one. Well, he still exists and he's casually lobbing volleys from the half during Europa League matches. They don't count - this one didn't, anyway - but the man still has ...
Blood happens, especially on knocked noggins when going up for a header. You know - when they come back to the pitch looking like they're about to serve you lunch from the school cafeteria with that net on their head. Sven Bender broke his nose during Borussia Dortmund's 3-1 win ...
You know, as far as macho jostling goes, this is pretty damn polite. "Have your run of the place but then please stay away." Of course maybe they're angry the Barcelona players left the town a mess as they trampled through it on a holiday before the match, which would ...
Having sold Radamel Falcao to Monaco for the sum of a homeless man's Bill Gates, you'd think the spectacular goal-scoring from the other side of Madrid would largely dry up. Well you'd be wrong. Toby Alderweireld is still going strong with this extraordinary header into the back of the net. ...
