12 things we loved on day seven: Isco, Keane, Ronaldo, Wright & more

Quick Reads

Former Manchester United and Arsenal heroes made us chuckle for their work in the ITV studios on day seven of the World Cup.

One week on from the opening match of the tournament, all three matches ended 1-0 as Portugal beat Morocco, Uruguay bested Saudi Arabia and Spain were victors against Iran.

We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch in Russia.

Iran throw

There are seconds left, your team are 1-0 down in a World Cup game and you win a throw-in. Why wouldn’t you do this?


A wonderful footballer and good with animals. Form an orderly queue. We love it when animals invade the pitch.

Gareth Southgate

Four years on from physio Gary Lewin dislocating his ankle celebrating Daniel Sturridge’s goal against Italy, England’s injury curse has struck again.

Ian Wright

Upon hearing the news about Gareth Southgate, Wright asked the question we were all thinking.

Roy Keane

Just look at Keano’s reaction. “Must not let my guard down, must not let my guard down.”

Roy Keane II

He’s still scaring us.

Roy Keane III

Just imagine being at his house on Christmas day. Just imagine it.

Cristiano Ronaldo

A good day’s work, you have to say.

Isco, again

The Real Madrid midfielder did a good impression of how every Manchester United supporter has felt for the last couple of seasons.


He really is the shithouse’s shithouse.

Sergio Ramos

Not wanting to have his title taken, Ramos proved he really is football’s ultimate bastard.

Rui Patricio

Wolves have got a very, very good goalkeeper.
