The last Premier League season saw the much-anticipated emergence of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City into the bully boys of the division, following an inaugural season in which the manager somewhat flattered to deceive.

If only Griezmann's football was as box office as his 'decision'

France kicked off their World Cup campaign with a slender victory over Australia. For long periods, the French looked lethargic and unable to string a succession of passes together.

Pepe remain's Portugal's weakest link

As opening group games go, Spain vs Portugal will be hard to match, with Cristiano Ronaldo, as expected, writing the narrative. The captain and talisman for his team was unplayable at times, and he deservedly bagged his hat-trick with an unstoppable free-kick that David De Gea didn’t even move for, so good was the quality of the strike. Pepe will be thanking his lucky stars that his colleague took home the match...
