Goalkeeper scores vital 93rd-minute winner in German second tier

Knowing that a draw would put a severe dent in his team's quest to make it into the Bundesliga, RB Leipzig goalkeeper Fabio Coltorti took it upon himself to keep the German second division club's aspirations alive during their recent game against fellow promotion hopefuls SV Darmstadt 98.

With Leipzig (who are chasing the fourth promotion of their brief six-year existence) having won a late corner in the 93rd minute, Coltorti charged upfield in an attempt to wreak a bit of havoc in the opponent's...

The Algerian Premier League title race is ridiculously tight

If you think the English Championship title race has been a close-run thing this year, then we urge you to have a quick glance at the Algerian Championnat Premier Division.

You may notice that there are only 11 points between ES Setif at the top of the table and NA Hussein Dey at the very bottom with four games left to play.

Indeed, the Premier Division is so tight that with 12 points still left to play for, a bad run could see Setif go from title challengers to relegation contenders in the...

UK PM David Cameron temporarily forgets which team he supports

Being the nephew of former Aston Villa chairman Sir William Dugdale, UK Prime Minister David Cameron has always identified himself as a Villa fan.

In fact, Cameron has even gone on record as saying that he's supported Villa since childhood after being taken to see his very first live football match at Villa Park as a 13-year-old boy.

However, just like the rest of us ordinary, hard-working football-loving folk, it seems he is also prone to forgetting which football club he's been a lifelong fan of...

Manchester United's Ashley Young explains infamous bird video

Ashley Young's man of the match performance in the Manchester derby marks a complete turnaround from the start of the season where it seemed the winger would struggle for first team opportunities under Louis van Gaal.

It's the story -- or conspiracy theory, depending on your viewpoint -- that refuses to go away. Did a bird really poo in Ashley Young's mouth during Manchester United's game against Swansea on the opening day of the 2014-15 season?

After months of keeping resolutely schtum over the matter, Young finally broke his silence over guano-gate two months after the incident in an emotional interview on television show "Soccer AM."

The United winger confessed to having no clue what happened on that fateful...

'Zlatan suite' replaces presidential suite at Malmo hotel

Zlatan Ibrahimovic now has a hotel room to add to his list.

Eager not to miss the opportunity to cash in on the Swedish city's most famous son, a hotel in Malmo have formally replaced their presidential suite with what they are now calling "The Zlatan Suite."

The suitably huge 1,076 square-foot suite, which opens on May 2, takes up the entire 23rd floor of the Clarion Hotel in Malmo city centre and features a "Nordic design with portraits of Zlatan hung wall to wall" and "monstrous views" of the harbour.

Sounds positively idyllic, no?

However, be warned:...

Ze Maria sacked as coach of Romanian side twice in one week

Ze Maria
The former Brazil international has an unwanted record in management.

Spare a thought for Ze Maria, who has recently managed the impressive feat of being sacked not once but twice by the same club within the space of a week.

Having only been in the job since late January, the former Brazil and Inter Milan full-back was fired by Romanian top-flight side Ceahlaul Piatra Neamt on April 15 after a limp run of form left the club third-bottom of Liga 1 with a six-point chasm between them and safety.

However, Ceahlaul's notorious owner, Angelo Massone, then decided to reinstate...
