“Following Ally McCoist’s ironic allegations, Kylian Mbappe scored ‘the first World Cup final hat-trick in which all three crossed the line’,” he said, but football’s first player and record Are there other instances where the holders of Steve Hyde tweet.
A footnote during England’s World Cup defeat to France, Harry Kane’s second penalty was England’s 54th goal, one ahead of Wayne Rooney. However, as the goalscorer for the England national team, there are arguments that he should already be on his own.
“Should Colleen Rooney put her considerable detective skills to good use and consider whether her husband’s international scoring record should be 52 goals instead of 53?” Dylan Kenny writes . “His second goal against Switzerland in Euro 2004 was definitely an own goal.” It was from a drive. A clear own goal in 2023, but as Kevin McCullough wrote at the time, there was a different attitude towards such a goal in 2004.
What’s even more interesting is that Kane scored a very similar goal against Lithuania in 2015. Giedorius Arlauski. If Rooney and Kane were both judged the same, Kane would have the lead by one, either as a goal or an own goal.
While talking about goals lavished, Gary Lineker probably should have scored 47 instead of 48 for England – his second goal against the USA in 1985 was Dan Cantor’s own goal. It should have been – and Marco van Basten probably didn’t, scoring a hat-trick against England at Euro 1988. If you slow this video down to 0.25 he can almost certainly see that his first goal was Everton’s Gary Stevens own goal.
No, we are not proud of ourselves.
world champion pair
“As Lisandro MartFour years after Rafa, Ines won the World Cup with Argentina.El Varane did so in France, but when was the last time the team had a World Cup-winning centre-back partnership? asks VP Pranav.
Between 2018 and 2021, Varane and 2010 world champion Sergio Ramos in Spain were Real Madrid’s centre-back partnership (if it worked out). In fact, it’s not uncommon. Gerard Piqué and Carles Puyol’s Barcelona pair He also won the Spanish national team in 2010 (Ramos played at right-back), and Piqué then moved on to Russia in 2018 with Varane’s partner Samuel Umtiti. played together.
Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels (Bayern Munich/Germany 2014), Frank Leboeuf and Marcel Desailly (Chelsea/France 1998) and Lucio and Marco Materazzi (Inter/Brazil 2002/Italy 2006) also qualify.
There are many others, but it probably does no one’s good to list them all, so I’ll end with a slightly quirky example. Andrea Barzagli and Cristian Zaccardo both played for his Cup-winning Italy side in 2006, bolting Palermo’s backdoor for several years afterward.
Injured by own testimony
“Recently, before moving abroad, I testified for a local team. I had the misfortune of breaking my leg during a match. mosquito?” Andrew Wilson writes.
Ah. Injuries are rare, as testimony is usually one down from the ally on the ladder of intensity. However, in 2000 Old in his pre-season testimony at Trafford this was not the case. “Phil Neville was sent off with a head injury, but Irwin himself kept fighting for just 37 minutes after a ferocious tackle by the current president of Liberia, George Weah. That was his four minutes. It happened to my eyes. Irwin was out of action for a month.”
There are some other games worth mentioning. Paul McGrath injured his right ankle during his 1998 testimony, tripping over the ball and letting Dean his Sanders score the winning goal. McGrath was able to keep playing in the final minutes. Twenty years ago, Johan Cruyff suffered a pride injury after being severely injured during a farewell match at Ajax when Bayern Munich abandoned their good intentions at the airport and decided to riot. He won 8-0.
Bernard Kersey Tweet: “There are three teams (Manchester United, Newcastle) that could be in the field this year. and Arsenal) are in the top four who failed to finish last season. Is this the biggest change in Top 4 history?
Andy Brook has kindly done some work on the subject and wrote: The last time all four were changed seems to be He 1912 to He 1913. Blackburn, Everton, Newcastle, Bolton. Then Sunderland, Villa, Wednesday, Manchester United.”
“Tottenham are now playing 30 consecutive games in the Premier League without a draw.” As Wouter van Dael said in 2019: “What’s the record for the longest such league match?”
First, some housework. The Spurs’ run ultimately ended with him playing 32 games. He had four games in the second half of the 2017-18 season and 28 at the start of the 2018-19 season. Some have asked the same question this week, as Blackburn has run 31 championship games without a draw. Last season he played 5 games and in 2022-23 he played 26. But, as we discovered in 2019, they haven’t hit the record yet…
Simply put, Spurs are Premier League record-breakers, Wouter…but that’s about it. “Bolton had previously held this title between March 2011 and he held it for 28 games in a row,” writes James Clark. “But in the broader context of English league history, Spurs still have a long way to go. Twenty-nine clubs have had longer winning streaks without a draw at one point, with Birmingham (43), Walsall (44 games), Leicester (44 games) and Bradford Park Avenue (44 games) have not been in a stalemate for more than 40 consecutive league games.), Stoke (46), Sunderland (46), Aston Villa (51).It is perhaps worth noting that Sunderland’s is the most recent of these, appearing relatively recently in 1908-1909. , five of the seven undrawn clubs are Midland teams.
“Aston Villa’s epic 51-game run spanned three seasons and has been pretty impressive since it began on New Year’s Day 1891 with a 5-0 win over Everton. 1892 remained largely unbeatable until the 1892 ended the streak with a 1–1 draw on Christmas Eve.”

“Who was the first American to play for a major European team?” Kurt Perleberg asks.
“Do the Premier League goals in this month’s competition consist only of same-day goals, or in modern parlance, game-week goals?” wonders Tom Ayres.
“Now that Pele is gone, is Mario Zagallo the only survivor who saw both the 1958 and 1962 finals live?” Kari Turinius’ Muse. “The World Cup was broadcast for the first time in the world in 1966, so not many people saw the previous two finals live, even if they did.”
“With two red cards and five substitutions, Crystal Palace ended the game against Fulham, leaving only three of the ten outfielders who started the game on the pitch. Has any team finished with fewer numbers in a game than this?” asks Nathan O’Hanrahan.
“In Celtic’s recent 4-1 win over St Johnstone, Leo Hatate and Kyogo Furuhashi scored all the goals. There are multiple goalscorers and they all share the same nationality.
