This is a Sergio Ramos post!

First up: After the win against Macedonia, Sergio Ramos joins Xavi Hernandez and Iker Casillas in the list of players with the most wins for their NT! Yeah, that's right. The three players with the most international wins are Spanish. Ramos made it 94 wins that night, equalling him to the French Lilian Thuram and Egyptian Ahmed Hassam who are now retired players.  The next Spaniard on the list is Xabi Alonso who retired with 88 wins. ANYWAY, you can discuss this further in the post made by lovely mrscrapbag. :)

Second: Did you all see Sergio's Panenka penalty goal in the Macedonia match? Pretty cool, right? Well, apparently he wasn't supposed to take that spot! According to Del Bosque, Cesc Fabregas was first on the list of penalty takers but Sergio decided to gallop around going "ME! ME! I WANNA TAKE IT!" Del Bosque says "There was a little debate between them, but it was not important." Mmm. Sergio asserting his dominance over Cesc... or Assistant Coach Toni Grande. Well, either way, Sergio Ramos asserting his dominance, rawr~

Third: I don't have a third so have a gif/pic spam!

Sergio Ramos thanks you for your time.

Jose Mourinho says Pep Guardiola doesn't enjoy football because he has no hair

Sometimes a quote comes along that's so wonderful it doesn't matter if the person it's attributed to actually said it. This is one of those quotes.

According to El Confidential, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho recently said the following about his former Clasico rival Pep Guardiola:

"When you enjoy what you do, you don't lose your hair, and Guardiola is bald. He doesn't enjoy football."

That might be the most Jose Mourinho line ever, even if he didn't actually say it. But there is reason to believe that he did...besides hilarity.

The two longtime bitter enemies were both in attendance for the UEFA Elite Club Coaches Forum last week and they reportedly bickered about grass length. Yes. GRASS LENGTH.

From the Express:

According to TZ, Guardiola argued that the rules would make the game faster and therefore more beautiful.

Mourinho is said to have responded: "Everyone has his style of play, which should be respected. Football can be spectacular in several ways."

Guardiola reportedly hit back: "The beauty of football depends on the coach. It seems to me that Mourinho prefers the result to the spectacle.

"I know to him that's all that matters."

So given that, Mourinho quipping about Guardiola's lack of hair and football grumpiness seems like an equally childish response.

If you weren't hoping for a Chelsea v Bayern Munich champions league final before, you should start doing so now. [I'm not but I hope they meet in knockout somehow XD]



This is so hilarious it's hard to believe it's true, but it's too absurd to imagine someone making it up

Footie News Roundup.

No matches until tomorrow, so let's have a roundup of some of the news from the world of football, shall we?

Daniel Agger pays for Denmark team to go to Homeless World Cup in Chile.

The former Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has paid for Denmark to send a team to the Homeless World Cup in Chile.

Agger, who left Liverpool last month to return to his old club Brondby, covered a £2,100 shortfall in funding after being approached by organisers, allowing the squad to make the journey.

Frits Ahlstrom, of the charity Ombold, told Danish channel TV2: “I talked to him and said we still had to find 20,000 krone, and he said without hesitating: ‘I’ll give it to you.’ There is no substitute for class and Daniel has it on and off the field, as a player and as a person.”

The Homeless World Cup, which began in 2003, is held annually, and was last hosted in Poland, where Brazil were the winners.


Franck Ribéry sticks by decision to retire from international football.

Franck Ribéry has insisted he has no plans to reverse his decision to retire from international football despite pressure from the Uefa president, Michel Platini.

Last month, the Bayern Munich forward announced he had played his final game for France, having been forced to miss the World Cup with a back injury. That decision was heavily criticised by Platini, who also threatened the 31-year-old with a ban if he ignores a future call-up from Didier Deschamps.

But Ribéry believes the issue has already been resolved and is adamant he will not change his mind. “I have already said before I have retired from international duty and I will not go back on my decision,” he told the German newspaper Der Welt.

“I have discussed this with France coach Deschamps and we reached an agreement on it. I want to focus completely on Bayern Munich in the future. That’s all I want to say about the matter. I am not going to get involved in all the politics surrounding my decision.”

Platini threatened Ribéry with suspension if he sticks with his decision, stating that it was not down to the player to decided when to retire. “If Deschamps calls him up, then he has to come to the national team,’’ Platini said. “That’s written in the Fifa statutes. If he doesn’t report for duty, then he would be banned for three matches for Bayern Munich.

“It is not the player’s decision whether he represents his country, it’s the decision of the coach. Ribéry cannot simply decide for himself whether he wants to play for France or not.”


Rat-Face set for Barcelona debut against Real Madrid on 25 October.

Luis Suárez’s debut for Barcelona is likely to come on Saturday 25 October against Real Madrid at the Bernabéu.

The striker – who joined from Liverpool earlier in the summer – is serving a worldwide ban after biting Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini while playing for Uruguay at the World Cup. His four-month suspension expires on Friday 24 October.

Portugal coach Paulo Bento leaves role after shock Albania defeat

Portugal coach Paulo Bento has left his role by mutual consent after last week's 1-0 defeat at home to Albania.

Bento, 45, had been in charge since 2010 but failed to steer his side out of the group stages at this summer's World Cup in Brazil.

The Portuguese Football Federation say his replacement will be announced soon, though it gave no date.

Portugal's second Euro 2016 qualifier is against Denmark next month, after they play France in a friendly.
Under Bento, Portugal reached the last four at Euro 2012 before losing a penalty shootout to eventual winners Spain.
They qualified for the World Cup by beating Sweden in a play-off but were thrashed 4-0 by Germany in their opener and were eliminated at the group stage.
