DR Congo keeper Robert Kidiaba breaks out trademark shuffle

Despite finding themselves two goals down with less than half an hour left to play, the Democratic Republic of Congo rallied and roared back with a 25-minute goal flurry to beat Congo in their African Nations Cup quarterfinal on Saturday evening.

DR Congo striker Dieumerci Mbokani got the comeback started in the 65th minute, with Jeremy Bokila snaffling an equaliser ten minute later.

After a tense interim, Joel Kimwaki finally headed the Leopards into a 3-2 lead with just eight minutes of normal...

Cart driver nearly runs over DR Congo player Gabriel Zakuani

DR Congo's Gabriel Zakuani, right, vies with Congo midfielder Delvin Ndinga on Saturday.

Poor Gabriel Zakuani. The DR Congo player went down with an injury during his country's big win over rivals Congo on Saturday, so they called to the sideline for some treatment.

Big mistake.

When the cart came on the pitch to ferry off Zakuani, the not-so-cautious driver added insult to the defender's injury and game him a bump:

And although the Peterborough United player did have to be replaced thanks to the injury suffered beforehand, he was able to joke about his "traffic accident" later on...

Paul Pogba beaten in 'shot challenge' by Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri

"I'm destroying you!" was the scream from Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri as he showed he has not lost his touch in a training ground contest with Paul Pogba on Thursday.

The pair stayed behind after training had finished, challenging each other to find the back of a small goal from 25 yards, without the ball touching the ground first.

Allegri came out on top of the contest 5-2, taking visible pleasure in beating a player he values at 100 million euros.

Juventus posted a video of the "shot challenge"...

Chelsea star Willian loves Michael Jackson and theatre

Chelsea's Willian says he's a big than of the theatre ... and Michael Jackson.

Seeking to take in the culture in his new home city, Chelsea midfielder Willian has fallen head over heels in love with musical theatre.

Indeed, the Brazilian has admitted he's become slightly obsessed with the West End over the past few months, having paid to see the Michael Jackson "Thriller" musical production more times than is probably necessary since he arrived in London in 2013.

"The first time I went to a musical in London I loved it," Willian told The Sun.

"Now whenever I have free time...

Atletico Madrid's Arda Turan given the boot on his birthday

After "temporarily misplacing" one of his boots during Atletico Madrid's Copa del Rey defeat against Barcelona on Wednesday evening, Arda Turan's friends marked the Turkish midfielder's birthday two days later by providing him with a replacement.

Of course, being considerate types, Turan's pals made sure his new boot was made solely of sponge cake and raspberry jam so as to ensure he couldn't injure any poor unfortunate linesmen with it in the near future.

Jurgen Klinsmann backheels two balls at the same time

The USA suffered their third straight loss on Wednesday evening, eventually going down 3-2 against Chile in Rancagua despite taking the lead twice through Brek Shea and Jozy Altidore.

There was, however, one brief sliver of positivity, with US coach Jurgen Klinsmann setting sail aboard the showboat 10 minutes into the second half -- putting on a masterful display of touch and technique on the touchline with not one ball, but two.
