  • Transfer: Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)

    Cristiano Ronaldo has completed his move from Real Madrid to Juventus at the age of 33. Showing that he has no plans of slowing down for the final stages of his playing career, signing a four year deal I very much think that means we will be seeing him in the next World Cup in […]

  • World Cup 2018: Peru 0-1 Denmark

    It is rather remarkable with this game how Peru did not manage to find the back of the net with the amount of chances they created and had from start to finish in the game, I think the missed penalty on half time pretty much made it looks like they were not going to score […]
