Croatia sacks National Team Coach days to semi-final game against England

Published

on

 

Croatian national football team coach has been sacked days before the World Cup semi-final with England after posting a pro-Ukraine video that has enraged Russians.

Former international Ognjen Vukojevic, 34, praised Ukraine in the video, which also featured defender Domagoj Vida, 29, shouting: ‘Glory to Ukraine!’.

It was published on Saturday, just after Croatia defeated the host nation on penalties in a closely fought quarter-final.

Their actions were criticised by Russian politicians and led to a warning from FIFA’s disciplinary committee.

The revolt was condemned as illegal by Moscow and sparked a crisis in relations between the two neighbouring states.

The Croatians apologised for Vida’s involvement in the scandal.

Lamar Odom discloses he used fake penis to pass drug test for Olympics

Lamar Odom has revealed he went to great lengths to play for USA Basketball at the Olympics, using a prosthetic penis to help him pass a drug test.

Lamar comes clean about how he was able to pass the test despite smoking weed on the daily in the summer of ’04 in his soon to be released book, “Darkness to Light”, where he says, “We started googling ‘fake penises’ and studied different ways to beat a drug test.”

“After an exhaustive search we ordered a giant, rubber, black c*** to arrive the next day,” Odom writes in an expert first provided to People … “I unzipped my pants and carefully slid the fake penis through the zipper hole. To get the pee to come out of the tip, I had to squeeze the shaft repeatedly.”

Lamar admits he was “paranoid” the fake penis ruse wouldn’t work once the official tester took the sample at Odom’s home … but he passed with flying colors and was soon heading to Greece with the rest of Team USA.

Unfortunately, Lamar couldn’t help the Americans win the gold medal … in one of our nation’s most embarrassing Olympic moments, a team full of NBA superstars came home with the bronze.

Marcus Rashford delays new contract talks over club’s performance under Solskjaer

Published

on

 

Marcus Rashford wants to assess Manchester United intent on rejoining football’s elite before signing his new contract.

United wants the England striker to commit beyond the next two seasons, after which he can move for just training compensation.

But it is understood Rashford wants to be sure the club are heading in the right direction after dropping out of the Premier League top four.

Rashford has played in the Champions League in the last two seasons but will back in the Europa League – the competition he made his explosive debut in three years ago – following United’s end-of-season slump.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will start the rebuilding process this summer and the United boss is looking at exciting young players rather than the marquee signings of the post-Alex Ferguson era.

“Next season we need to get back to how Manchester United play, for me that’s most important,” Rashford wrote this week on social media.

“We need to find that willingness and respond the right way.”
