We all remember where we were on the day Ronaldinho broke England hearts at the 2002 World Cup.

Despite a Michael Owen goal putting England into the lead, Brazil bounced back and knock England out of the tournament with a 2-1 win.

It was this free-kick which saw Brazil go through and while David Seaman said he had a dodgy back, we think he should have saved this.

Eddie Nketiah had an impressive end to the season and put pen to paper on a new deal with the Gunners.

Nketiah's new shirt number has had quite the reaction at Arsenal after being given the number 14 jersey. It is most associated with Thierry Henry during his time at the club.

Who would have expected a Chelsea supporter and a Spurs fan to be the ones leading the criticism?

Chelsea are on the hunt for new additions ahead of 2022/23 and it seems like they are focused on bringing in attackers.

Neymar has been linked while Raheem Sterling appears to be one of their main targets this summer with just 12 months left on his Man City contract.

Chelsea have splashed the cash in recent years but these miserable stats just prove that money cannot always guarantee success - well goals anyways.

Marcelo Bielsa was sacked last season by Leeds United but he could be set for a return to football.

The Argentinian coach - who Pep Guardiola has branded a 'genius' - will become Athletic Bilbao manager if Arechabaleta wins the elections.

We wonder if he will take his famous bucket back with him to Spain? Arsenal are expected to bid for Leeds' Raphinha and Thierry Henry may have played a deciding factor in the signing without even realising. Speaking about Henry, Raphinha said: "I love Arsenal and I'd be watching the Prem with my dad on the free-to-air channels. "Henry was flying, man. The runs, the finishes, it was crazy. I made a vow that one day I'll play there."

Should the deal go through, Henry will probably be hoping to get some commission from the move...
