One of the first things that strike you in most European countries is how life goes on with minimum of noise. First impressions of Germany four years ago were as if someone had pressed the mute button on a giant remote. Read more

He is 232 days old, but has a wicked sense of humour. He introduces himself as the “youngest Twitter scribe in the world.” He is an infant, who probably hasn’t even learnt to walk or hold himself upright, but tweets everyday. Read more

England’s recent performance against Algeria (0-0) has probably been one of the most dreadful ones we have witnessed so far. Capello and company were successful in the World Cup qualifiers but their start in South Africa has proved to be a major disappointment. Read more

Many are calling it the worst World Cup in history due to the less number of goals scored in the first round. Managers of top International sides are blaming the controversial Adidas Jabulani ball, as they claim it to be dreadful for goalkeepers.
