You see the image above? This picture of Danny Agger and his abs was taken by a Kickette Soldier Girl present at the Denmark vs. England game last night. There were other photos, but unfortunately our gal’s next move was to leap the hoardings and race towards Danny, brandishing a bottle of tanning oil and a copy of ‘Tattoo Monthly’ and she was brought down by five burly security men before any contact could be made. Her camera was damaged in the melee, as well as Danny’s shorts and a couple of innocent bystanders suffered facial scratching.

The controversy surrounding international friendlies during the season has raged on for so long now, we would have got bored of it if we had cared in the first place. We have no space in our lives for debates on whether players are tired, whether the the games are unnecessary and the criticism of team managers for making too many substitutions, not enough substitutions, playing the wrong formation or using an umbrella. Depending on how their team performs, of course.
While snoods have been must have fashion accessory for footballers this season, it seems that the sudden requirement for throat warmth is not confined to the pitch. Yes people, scarves are the new manbag, and festooning oneself with varying lengths of woolly or shiny (or in some horrifying cases, both) material is really catching on over on Planet Baller.

Midweek international friendlies. From what we can gather, these games serve no useful purpose from a sporting perspective but provide us with the opportunity to perv on players while they’re wearing different coloured jerseys. For this reason, and this reason alone, we at Kickette applaud the international friendly and will campaign for its continued presence in the footballing calendar. Please enjoy our highlights in the meantime.

So Mesut Ozil won a Bambi Award. We were laboring under the misapprehension that a Bambi was an appearance based honour awarded to those who look most like the Disney deer, a notion not dispelled by the above photo. However, for those who care, Mesut received his Bambi for ‘successful integration into German society’.
