​West Ham midfielder Soucek makes donation in Czech Republic

West Ham United midfielder Tomas Soucek has donated to a charity in the Czech Republic amid the coronavirus outbreak. The 25-year-old, who came from Slavia Prague in the country in January, is the most renowned Czech player currently in the game. And it appears that he has joined with other Czech celebrities, such as former Chelsea keeper Petr Cech, in donating to Wave for Hope. The charity is attempting to raise funds so they can buy medical equipment for nurses, doctors and other frontline staff as they battle the surge of COVID-19 patients. Soucek, who is on loan at the Hammers, is not their only player to make a charitable donation recently. Mark Noble also donated to his local borough Basildon

Conte Blasted me in front of Inter Teammates Says Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku has revealed that Inter head coach Antonio Conte’s no-nonsense approach is getting the best out of his game. The Belgium international moved to the Serie A outfit from Manchester United for £75 million ($98m) in the summer and has rapidly established himself as one of the most dangerous forwards in Italy’s top flight. After being perceived as a flop at Old Trafford, Lukaku has excelled in Milan, where he has 14 goals in 20 Serie A appearances this season. He says that the mentality of Conte is getting the best from his game and even said that being rubbished in front of his team-mates after one particularly poor display has motivated him to achieve greater heights. “I remember one of my first Champions League games against Slavia Prague when I played really ba...

Own Goal Seals Liverpool Win At Hoffenheim

Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool are far from certain of a Champions League group stage berth despite their 2-1 win at Hoffenheim on Tuesday in their play-off, first-leg. The result in south-west Germany leaves Klopp’s Liverpool in pole position ahead of the return at Anfield on Wednesday, August 23. After goalkeeper Simon Mignolet had saved a first-half penalty, 18-year-old defender Trent Alexander-Arnold curled in a free-kick to give Liverpool the lead. Ex-England forward James Milner made sure of victory by curling in a cross-cum-shot, which dropped inside the far post on 75 minutes after deflecting off Havard Nordtveit for an own goal. However, Hoffenheim pulled a goal back when replacement Mark Uth managed to beat the offside trap to score late on to give the Germans hope. ...

Highest Goal Scorers In World Football History

1. Arthur Friedenreich – 1,329 goals: Surprisingly the man who tops this list is not Pele, but another Brazilian who went by the name Arthur Friedenreich. The Brazilian striker played for an astonishing 26 years from 1909-1935 scoring an absolutely incredible 1,329 goals in his career. He was the Copa America player of the tournament and the golden boot winner in 1919. However, he never represented Brazil in a World Cup as there was a serious misunderstanding between the Football Leagues of the States of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Nicknamed the ‘Tiger’, he was the game’s first outstanding black player and he had to face many barriers and widespread racism throughout his career. He played a starring role in Brazil’s 1919 and 1922 Copa America campaign and he was crowned as the “King...
