I write about English football and Indian Cricket.

Today I will be predicting the whole Euro 2020 tournament, who wins it, top scorer, most assists, etc etc. The tournament is getting closer and closer by the day and with all the squads announced, I’ll try to make what I think is a reasonable prediction but at the end of the day, this is football and anything can happen. Let’s get started.

GROUP STAGES/KNOCKOUTS/WHO WINS THE WHOLE TOURNAMENT:

Firstly, let’s talk about who makes it out of each group


Today I will be taking at a look at all the groups of the upcoming Euro 2020 tournament and picking out the most exciting fixtures and previewing how I think each match will go down. Let’s get into it.

1. Croatia vs England

A repeat of 2018 World Cup semi final. Since Mario Mandzukic scored the winner in that game, the Croatian team has changed a fair bit, with Mandzukic himself announcing his international retirement after their World Cup final. Vedran Corluka and Danijel Subasic who were also key cogs of that special squad that reached the final, they also announced their retirement after the final as well. Croatia still have amazing players in their team, Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic, Ivan Perisic, Ante Rebic and Andrej Kramaric just to name a few. …


Most countries have announced their squads for the upcoming Euros but one of the big nations have left it until last and that was England. Today, 1st of June at 17:00 Gareth Southgate announced his 26 man squad and in this article I’ll be sharing all my thoughts on it.

ONES TO WATCH FROM EVERY TEAM IN EURO 2020

watch my summary here: https://youtu.be/UimGt_ov40w

With the Euros approaching very soon and all the participants being decided, I have chosen to look through all of the 24 countries and pick out one key player from each country who will be crucial to the success of his nation. Without further ado, let’s get into it.

ITALY — Nicolo Barella

Barella this season for Inter has become one of their key players at such a young age. At just 24, he’s started 32 games and has 7 assists and 3 goals as a centre mid in a title…

KL Rahul’s brand Gully and The Bharat Army have come together to produce an epic IPL range as you can see here. I’ll be sending out an exclusive IPL jersey to the winner!

The first week of the IPL was everything I could have hoped for — we’ve jumped straight back into…


Welcome back. Today I’ll be talking about Ben Stokes — who I believe is the best all-rounder England has ever produced! I’m going to list the reasons why I feel he’s well on his way to being THE greatest all-rounder the world of cricket has ever seen…

When the pressure is truly on, Ben Stokes is the man you can rely on.
The 2019 Cricket World Cup final still gives me goosebumps! Stokes’ role in victory is something that’ll be admired for a long time - scoring an unbeaten 84 and then being instrumental in the dramatic super over. He…


Today’s story is about another Newcastle hero. I’ve now covered Alan Shearer, David Ginola and Les Ferdinand already, so inkeeping with the NUFC Nostalgia series- today I’m writing about Rob Lee. He spent ten glorious years on Tyneside and gave us Newcastle fans alot of memories to cherish from his 303 appearances. Here are three reasons why Rob Lee is a true toon legend…

Rob Lee may be a Londoner but he does have Geordie roots so it’s no surprise that his move to Tyneside from Charlton Athletic in 1992 was a special one. Rob Lee’s childhood footballing hero Kevin…


Today’s story is about a very special Indian cricketer. He was awarded the Rajiv Khel Ratna Award last summer (India’s highest sporting honour). The prestigious award came as no surprise. 2019 was a defining one for this cricketer’s career - five centuries in the World Cup is just one achievement. Of course, I’m talking about Rohit Sharma!

Rohit Sharma is a 33 year old International cricketer who is the vice-captain of the Indian national team in limited-overs formats. He is the only cricketer in the history of cricket to score more than one ODI double centuries.

In January 2020, Sharma…


The David Ginola article went down really well and it felt natural to write my next story on Les Ferdinand. As a Newcastle United fan I regard Sir Les as a truly memorable player during the Kevin Keegan era at the Toon. It’s hard to believe he only spent two years on Tyneside considering the impact he made. He really did have a special connection with us Newcastle fans with his commitment and love for the club. For those of you who don’t know, Les Ferdinand is a British footballer from London who earned 17 caps for England and is…
