Review of the Day

 

Transfers

Nigel Hasselbaink, the nephew of Jimmy Floyd, has switched teams for just over £1.5m. The Dutch forward clearly does not have quite the same level of talent as his famous uncle and is plying his trade for Hapoel Beer Sheva in Israel, who signed him from fellow Israeli top flight side Kiryat Shmona.

 

Slab Head Gets New Deal

Leicester City cart hor, erm centre back, Harry Maguire has signed a new 5 year deal with the Foxes after being bizarrely the subject of interest from Manchester United, amongst others, in the summer. Somehow a defender who cannot defend has become valued at over £70m by Leicester and they committed themselves to keeping him, and that gaping hole he leaves on the left side of the defence, at the club for the forseeable future.

 

Shaw 'Doing Fine'

Man Utd's left back Luke Shaw has said on social media that he is recovering well after suffering a head injury while playing for England. Shaw was taken off on a stretcher after receiving on-pitch treatment for nearly 7 minutes. The full-back has struggled with injury problems since joining Man Utd and had only just got back into both the Red Devils and England line ups before his latest set back.

 

England Add Leicester Pair

Following England's 2-1 loss to Spain and an injury to Luke Shaw, England manager Gareth Southgate (just how are those four words together like this? What has Southgate done to get the job and keep it so long other than lose to every decent side he ever faced?) has called up Leicester City duo Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray for the (pointless/meaningless) friendly against Switzerland.

 

Stampede Causes Death At Football Stadium

After queuing up outside the only entrance of the Stade Municipal de Mahamasina in Madagascar since the early hours of the morning, a number of people have been hurt, and at least one killed, by a stampede as the gates were opened. Madagascar were set to face Senegal in the qualifying round for the African Cup of Nations before the incident occurred which left dozens injured. The game took place in front of a capacity crowd despite the stampede ending in a 2-2 draw.

 

Hiddink Gets New Asian Football Role

Dutch manager Guus Hiddink is highly regarded in Asian football after his success with South Korea in the 2002 World Cup, who he led to victories over the likes of Italy in Korean and Japan, which is why China, with its vast wealth being poured into improving its football, have now turned to him to take charge of their youth sides. While Marcello Lippi prepares the senior side for the Asian Cup finals in the UAE in January, Hiddink will be in charge of the under-21s as they look to qualify for their first Olympics since 2008, when they hosted the tournament and received an automatic spot.
