Manchester United Shirk The Limelight To Good Effect

It has been a strange, quiet pre-season for one of the biggest clubs in the world. When the curtains came down on Manchester United’s shambolic 2018-19 campaign with defeat at home to already-relegated Cardiff City, a summer of upheaval seemingly lay in wait.

Time for Andreas Pereira to Make his Mark at Manchester United

We are nearing the end of preparations as Manchester United fly back home to wrap things up ahead of their Friday night fixture against Leicester City next week. United's camp was a lot happier after the final game - as they edged a Real Madrid - who are admittedly in their nascent stages of pre-season - in Miami, Florida.

Lingard Lights up Russia as England Qualify for the Round of 16

On Sunday, England put six - yes, six goals - past Panama to seal qualification to the next round in a manner they have arguably never done before at the grandest of stages. It was a blend of contrasts throughout.  For it was reticent, yet an impressively flamboyant display at times. It was in some ways, imperfect and error-strewn yet incredibly clinical and ruthless when it really mattered. It was a matured performance; coming from a bunch of mostly wild …
