1. Nothing friendly about that.
2. Man up Drogba - I was expecting a open compound fracture the way he was writhing around out there. Puts soccer players in a poor light.
3. One of my pools is pooched.
arjen Robben limped off the field against Hungary. Some are reporting knee but apparently it is hamstring, either way a MASSIVE blow for Holland as he is/was one of the most in form players in the world right now and had 2 goals in the game. Couldn't find reports on timeline as I think things are kept pretty hush hush.
Wow. Just did a little digging about Cabañas. In January, he was at a nightclub with his wife and apparently was shot when he was in the bathroom. The robbery story is being disputed heavily by his wife, and there is a rumour that he was actually an assassination target. The club had surveillance videos and they've shown two suspects who were in the bathroom at the same time.
From the sounds of things, he won't realistically be playing any time soon, if ever again - apparently he thinks he was in a car accident - and still has the bullet in his skull, as doctors felt it would be too dangerous to remove it. This is despite the fact he has rehabbed enough to be released from treatment.
