Paul Scholes. Not just a fan’s favourite, judging by the star studded cast lining up to play in his testimonial. Image: Reuters/Daylife
Last night, during Manchester United’s 7-0 tonking of Seattle Sounders, the The New York Cosmos released their roster of footballers who will be gracing the Old Trafford pitch for Paul Scholes’ upcoming testimonial.
The big news? Well, details are sketchy, but we have identified the following things that you might want to keep an eye out for:
- Fabio Cannavaro and Patrick Vieira’s triumphantly quick returns to the pitch.
- The long and short of Robbie Keane.
- Googling players like Moriken Sangary to discover what they’re working with prior to the match.
Full squad list after the jump, peeps. Soz, we know, it’s one extra step, but nothing worth having comes without effort.
Marco Borriello can barely contain his excitement. Philippe Mexes’ missed-our-list consolation prize is the latest pout-plumping lipgloss from Boots.
You lot might be thrilled and excited about today’s reveal of the new Kickette F5 list, but we can assure you that our comments moderator is not. It’s taken us several weeks to rescue her from beneath the mountain of mail received on the matter and it’s very possible she may not ever recover and/or want to work with us again.
You should take pity on her and send flowers to the Mayhem & Fruit Beverage Suite, where she’s still holed up enjoying her quietly calm surroundings before bearing the brunt of the oncoming opinionated-readers storm.
A picture of a hot, victorious goalkeeper holding a small child would normally be a shoo-in for the lead in a results post. We see no reason to deviate from this policy just because Hope Solo happens to be a woman. Image: ODD ANDERSEN/AFP/Getty Images/Daylife.
Please make your way through the results post with caution. We wouldn’t want you to drift off to your happy place during our coverage of the Copa America, only to spill your morning beverage in your lap when you read the Women’s World Cup reports.
A lapful of coffee is a tough look to pull off, even for an experienced Kickette.
Theo Walcott & Melanie Slade. Happy to consort with Muggles, apparently. See more of Mel’s red carpet look by having a squizz at our Style Files. Images: Getty Images/Daylife.
Fine literature and sweet music accompany your snuffle into the week’s news today, Kickettes. We ask that you extinguish all flammable objects and keep laughter and criticism to a dull roar. Thank you.
Goalkeepers, be warned. Stay on your line when England’s Ellen White is around. Image: Reuters/Daylife
Right. Before you lot start having panic attacks that we’ve got distracted by a passing cake lorry and forgotten to cover the Copa America again, fear not. Today we shall supply you with not one, but two Midweek Results posts; one covering the Women’s World Cup (this one) and one covering the Copa America (hitting your screens later).
We know. Sometimes our diligence and attention to detail is frightening.
