Erm, we're pretty sure Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain does not look like this...By Eurosport | World of Sport – 4 hours ago
It's easily done of course, mixing up the photos of the players for the starting XI graphics, but Sky Sports were left embarrassed by a simple mix-up.
The trouble is, this is not the first time that England winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been confused for another of his team-mates.
Before the match against Everton, Oxlade-Chamberlain's name was printed in the right-attacking midfield spot of the Arsenal XI, only with a photo of Calum Chambers instead.Read More »from Embarrassing TV gaffe sees Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain change appearance
Warning: Graphic content - photo of Stephen Ireland's leg injury is not for the faint-hearted.By Eurosport | World of Sport – 6 hours ago
Did anyone ask to see this? Well, there are some occasions when following sport involves seeing some rather unpleasant things.
Stephen Ireland's injury following Maynor Figueroa's horror challenge was always going to be a nasty one, and this photo shows just how nasty, as revealed by the Daily Telegraph.
The Stoke City midfielder needed '12-13 stitches' for this three-inch gash on his calf, and frankly it looks disgusting.
He was immediately withdrawn and is likely to be out of action for a minimum of three weeks as his leg recovers from the sickening wound.
Suffice to say, Stoke boss MarkRead More »from Sickening photo of Stephen Ireland's leg after horror tackle

BBC pundit Alan Shearer created a very awkward moment during the flagship highlights show.By Eurosport | World of Sport – 7 hours ago
How planned was this awkward moment with Alan Shearer on Match of the Day? It's hard to say, but it could perhaps have been predicted with hindsight.
Shearer has history with fellow BBC pundit Ruud Gullit, and the former Newcastle striker was not shy in bringing it back up during the Premier League highlights show.
Back in 1999 when Gullit was the manager of Newcastle, the Netherlands legend took the disastrous and unpopular decision to drop Shearer for a derby against Sunderland.
It was a bold and frankly absurd call from the Dutchman, and one which effectively cost him his job as SunderlandRead More »from Alan Shearer in awkward 'tough time' moment on Match of the Day
Raul scored again for New York Cosmos - but the pitch he was playing on was hardly fitting for Real Madrid's all-time leading goalscorer.World of Sport – 7 hours ago
It has been a pretty seamless start to his New York Cosmos career for the legendary Raul.
Real Madrid's all-time record goalscorer, 37, joined the American club for the upcoming NASL season and has apparently lost none of his instinct for goal.
After netting on his debut against South China FC, Raul was on target again in a friendly against Sacramento.
Wearing his famous No. 7 shirt, Raul took advantage of some disorganisation in the opposition defence to head home the opener.
But as the video above shows, he got a second chance horribly wrong.
And to add to the indignity of the moment, oneRead More »from Raul still red hot as he nets another goal for New York Cosmos
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Marco Reus collaborated for this unforgettable celebrationBy Eurosport | World of Sport – 21 hours ago
Fast-improving Borussia Dortmund notched their fourth straight Bundesliga win after scoring three times in eight minutes late on to earn a 3-0 home victory over Ruhr Valley rivals Schalke 04.
But what was most remarkable about the game was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Marco Reus' collaboration for an unforgettable celebration after Aubameyang had put the hosts ahead in the 78th minute.
The Gabon international made a beeline for the a spot just behind the post before collecting something, so it was clearly pre-planned.
Aubameyang, of course, has form for these sorts of celebrations:Read More »from VIDEO: Borussia Dortmund players do amazing Batman and Robin celebration
This kid wouldn't let go of Rakitic after his outstanding performance against Granada.By Eurosport | World of Sport – 23 hours ago
Ivan Rakitic got himself on the scoresheet during Barcelona's 3-1 win over Granada on Saturday.
The Croatian international has bagged five goals and five assists in 28 appearances so far this season and is one of the fans' favourites at Camp Nou.
A young supporter clearly appreciated Rakitic's dominant midfield performance so much he wouldn't let go of him at full-time.
Early reports suggest Rakitic refused to give the kid his match-worn shirt although that hasn't been confirmed by any of the major Spanish news outlets.Read More »from WATCH: Child ends up in tears after hugging Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic
Angel Di Maria put in a rather subdued first-half performance against Sunderland in the Premier League – and Twitter has not held back.By Eurosport | World of Sport – Sat, Feb 28, 2015 18:39 GMT
Angel di Maria put in a rather subdued first-half performance against Sunderland in the Premier League.
Such was the level of his performance, he was withdrawn at half-time with Adnan Januzaj sent on in his stead.
The fact that his performance came a day after he admitted that things at United had not “gone as well as they could have” fuelled the fire on social media, which was quick to lambast the Argentine international.
Indeed, a photo of Di Maria as being last seen with Sir Alex, of all people, became a huge hit on social media.Read More »from Overreaction Theatre: Ashley Young better than 'missing' Angel Di Maria
John O’Shea hauled down Radamel Falcao in the box, but Wes Brown was sent off, as Roger East had a horror show.By Eurosport | World of Sport – Sat, Feb 28, 2015 16:48 GMT
Radamel Falcao's sleight of foot in the box dumbfounded former Manchester United man John O’Shea to the point that the Ireland international hacked the Colombian to the ground to give away a penalty during Sunderland's clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Rooney converted the resultant penalty and then added a second courtesy of a header from close range as United ran out 2-0 winners.
It was a clear-cut decision and there were few complaints from Sunderland as referee Roger East pointed to the spot.
However, inexplicablyRead More »from Mistaken identity at Old Trafford: Referee Roger East sends off Wes Brown instead of John O'Shea
