Gignac's gruesome foot

The Toe Poke

Andre-Pierre Gignac's foot looks gruesome after River Plate match

To call the first leg of the Copa Libertadores final between Liga MX side Tigres and River Plate of Argentina a physical affair is a bit of an understatement. River Plate secured a 0-0 draw in Monterrey on Wednesday thanks in part to some staunch defending... And by staunch defending we mean tackling -- lots of tackling.

In total the Argentines were whistled for 25 fouls, and bearing the brunt of the worst of it was the right foot of Tigres striker Andre-Pierre Gignac.

Let's just say that the...

Samuel Eto'o's Russian tutor had no idea who he was at Anzhi

Samuel Eto'o's fame evidently does not extend to teachers.

A British language tutor has confessed to spending months teaching former Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea and Inter Milan star Samuel Eto'o to speak Russian without having a clue who her world-famous student actually was.

Rebecca Prew, a 23-year-old Russian and French student at Leeds University, was hired to help Eto'o get to grips with the language during the Cameroon striker's time at Anzhi Makhachkala in 2012.

She then spent three months teaching him without realising that the man she was home-schooling...

Eric Cantona throws weight behind campaign to save Bath City

As unlikely as it would seem, renowned actor, sociologist and philosopher Eric Cantona (we think he may have dabbled in football at one point, too) has publicly pledged his support to a campaign launched by Bath City fans to save the cash-strapped club.

City, who currently play in the National League South (England's fifth tier), have been on the brink of financial ruin, and as such, their supporters are rallying in an attempt to raise the money required to purchase the club outright, and then run...

Ballboy takes over as manager of non-league club AFC Fylde

Something tells us that when 11-year-old Daniel Fryer goes back to school in September, his "what I did over the summer holidays" presentation is going to take some beating.

This is because young Daniel spent Wednesday night in charge of his beloved local football team, AFC Fylde of the National League North, and went on to mastermind a respectable 1-1 draw against Championship side Bolton Wanderers.

The youngster regularly turned out as a ballboy for Fylde, so the club decided to reward him for...

Zinedine Zidane scores immense try in strange football/rugby hybrid match

Just as they did when they faced a Marseille XI two summers ago, Toulon rugby club staged another one of their bizarre rugby/football hybrid charity matches on Wednesday evening.

The opposition this time was provided by veterans of France's 1998 World Cup-winning side, with the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Didier Deschamps, Robert Pires and Claude Makelele all turning out for Les Bleus.

Indeed, Zidane proved that his mercurial talents aren't just limited to football when he carved through the Toulon...

Cristiano Ronaldo or Laurent Koscielny: Whose skill is better?

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti says that Real Madrid might consider offloading Cristiano Ronaldo if a record sum is offered.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley is at odds as to why Rafael Benitez would not originally say Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player at Real Madrid.

While limbering up with his Real Madrid teammates in Shanghai on Wednesday afternoon, Cristiano Ronaldo executed an ultra-casual, no-look pass that garnered hushed awe from the fans in attendance.

Just to top it all off, Ronaldo also chucked in a nonchalant wave to the crowd just for fun.

Meanwhile, in North London, it would appear that Arsenal's...
