Atletico Madrid Star Joao Felix in awe of Chelsea team

Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix has revealed that he likes to watch Chelsea midfielder, Mason Mount play. claiming he knew all about the England international’s talents before he even made the first-team breakthrough at Stamford Bridge. Felix, who has been tipped to succeed Cristiano Ronaldo as the king of Portuguese football, is no doubt, well-quipped to follow in his mentor’s footsteps owing to his blistering form in the colours of Atletico Madrid. The Portuguese sensation signed a seven-year contract with Atletico Madrid in 2019 for a transfer fee of   £113 million -the fourth highest sum ever paid in football and Benfica’s biggest transfer also Atlético’s most expensive signing ever.   However, the 21-year-old, who has notched up nine goals in 27 games in all competition this season, declared his admiration for Mount ahead of the Roji Blancos Champions League clash with Chelsea on Tuesday. He said: “I like the way he [Mount] plays, the way he likes to drag the ball, the

FA Cup: Bernard's Extra time goal eliminate Spurs

  Then it was Carlo Ancelotti’s turn to watch his Everton side throw away a lead as the visitors pulled it back to 3-3 after the break. But Richarlison thought he had fired the Toffees into the quarter-finals with his second of the night - before Harry Kane’s 84th minute diving header sent us into extra-time. With echoes of Everton’s epic 1991 4-4 draw with Liverpool flowing through their fans’ minds, Bernard went one better by firing the Toffees into the quarter-finals with a 97th minute clincher. Their Brazilian striker Richarlison could not solely claim the prize for being the night’s highest scoring South American as Davinson Sanchez - yes him - bagged a brace for Tottenham. And we have not even mentioned Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who bagged his 50th Everton goal and played a part in all three of their first half goals before going off injured after the break. And they say the FA Cup is boring and nobody gives a damn about it anymore. Well, that was not the case at Goodiso

Coppa Italia: Juve through to the final despite draw against Milan

  JUVENTUS reached the Coppa Italia final thanks to a bore draw at home to Inter Milan in the semi-final in Turin. Juve won the first leg 2-1 and will play Atalanta or Napoli in the final. Inter Milan were unable to overcome Juventus over two legs to book a place in the final of the Coppa Italia, and the Old Lady will now await one of Atalanta or Napoli for the trophy. The Nerazzurri were touted as slight favourites to make the final, but Juve are not one to lie down, and are well deserving of their place. Cristiano Ronaldo’s break in the first leg saw them escape with a 2-1 advantage coming into the return leg in Turin, and we had no intention of letting it slip. Juventus controlled today’s tie initially, dominating the possession, taking very little risks, and the visitors had to raise their level to stand a chance. Antonio Conte’s team did do just that, and they enjoyed a strong spell of dominance, but our defence was equal to it. They did look set to level when Christia

That's because they tend to outgrow their footwear quickly. Crowding their feet into tight socks & short shoes can cause painful ingrown toenails which may get infected. Even adults who constantly wear tight-fitting shoes are at risk of having ingrown toenails.
