Welcome to another edition of Talk of the Turnstile, bringing a weekly round up of all things football and SoccerStarz!
What do these men Falcao, Walcott, Benteke, Strootman and now Ribery, have in common? Well; they will all be absent from the World Cup through injury. Ribery was the latest to be struck by the injury curse and will have to support France from the sidelines. The Portuguese FA has also confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo is struggling with tendonitis and this could end his hopes of playing in the World Cup.
World Cup is only 5 days away!!!!
With just 5 days left to go til the start of the WC, excitement is really starting to take hold of each country as they begin the journey to glory. As you will have seen, SoccerStarz have posted numerous articles in the build up to the tournament where @Dominiho7 (follow him on Twitter by clicking HERE) has been running the rule on who he thinks can win the tournament and who to watch out for. Keep an eye over the coming week as we will continue to post so great World Cup content.
Some brief headlines (rather Southampton dominated at the moment)
- Rickie Lambert scored for England as they drew 2-2 with Ecuador in a friendly. It has been a good week for Rickie as he secured his move to his boyhood Liverpool on Monday
- It is increasingly likely that Cesc Fabregas will be playing in the blue of Chelsea next season as they are very close to agreeing a deal with Barcelona
- One deal that is done however is Diego Costa’s move to the Blues as he passed a medical earlier this week.
With the close season now upon us, the transfer mill has gone into overdrive. So over the coming months we will try to keep you as updated as possible on the majority of transfers as and when they happen.
- Rickie Lambert signs for Liverpool
- Phillipe Senderos signs for Aston Villa
- AC Milan signed ex Chelsea centre back Alex
- Liverpool also sign Emre Can from Leverkusen
- Ayoze Perz has joined Newcastle
