Toe Poke Daily: Man United boss Solskjaer's sumptuous chip proves he's still got it

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol details how Marcus Rashford has transformed into the most important piece of the puzzle at Manchester United.
Even England's 'Three Lions' of David Beckham, Prince William and David Cameron couldn't win the bid.

The Toe Poke Daily is here every day to bring you all the weirdest stories, quirkiest viral content and top trolling that the internet has to offer, all in one place.

Jump to: Finland PM gives Macron a Teemu Pukki shirtArsenal legend Ian Wright not so hot off the teeRef shown VAR replay on mobile phone

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer put his strikers to shame by deftly executing a little casual target practice during training.

Challenged with chipping a ball into a wheelie bin from several yards away, the Norwegian dinked his shot home at the first time of asking.

Even at the ripe old age of 46, Solskjaer proved that he can still find the net -- or bin, in this case -- with the best of them.

Whether there are any plans to come out of retirement for one last fling, we couldn't possibly speculate.

Finland PM gives Macron a Teemu Pukki shirt

Not only is he banging in the goals for Norwich City this season, but Teemu Pukki has now found himself an integral part of Finnish international diplomacy.

Indeed, the Prime Minister of Finland, Antti Rinne, was in Paris this week to hold talks with his French counterpart, President Emmanuel Macron.

It was only fitting that Rinne begin proceedings by offering up a special gift -- a customised national team shirt complete with their main man's name and number on the back.

How nice to see Finland and France extend the hand of friendship via Carrow Road. And with that, unequivocal world peace moved one step closer.

Arsenal's legend Ian Wright not so hot off the tee

Ahead of the BMW PGA Championship starting in earnest this week, the golf tournament got underway with a charity pro-am day on Wednesday.

The football world was well represented, with the likes of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nemanja Vidic, Harry and Jamie Redknapp and Andriy Shevchenko taking part.

Ian Wright was also among the famous amateurs involved, though the less said about the former Arsenal striker's dreadful tee shot, the better.

While the commentators were quick to chortle, it took a few frustrated moments before Wright himself was able to laugh at his dismal effort.

Ref shown VAR replay on mobile phone

Over in the Indonesian top flight, controversy struck the big game between Borneo FC and Madura United on Wednesday evening.

With the score level at 1-1, the referee awarded a dramatic injury-time penalty to Borneo.

The match then ground to a halt as Maduro players, incensed by the decision, remonstrated with the officials and even came close to leaving the field entirely.

As the protests continued, one enterprising Madura player attempted to overturn the call by showing the ref a replay of the incident using a mobile phone.

Despite the attempt at DIY VAR, the decision was ultimately upheld and upon the restart, Borneo dispatched the spot-kick to claim a 2-1 win in the 94th minute.
