13 things we loved this weekend: Soccer Aid, Pogba, Roma, Mitrovic
With the World Cup on the horizon, international teams around the world played some of their final warm-up matches ahead of the tournament.
And there was also some notable action in MLS, the bizarre case of Roma’s Twitter account and, of course, Soccer Aid. Speaking of which…
Better known as Neil from The Inbetweeners, Harrison scored the winning penalty at Soccer Aid but had already stolen the show before kick-off.

Somebody, please, fix @CliveTyldesley before the world cup starts.

We have to admit, this made us drool.

That pass, that Diego Costa dribble, that finish. Yes.
Roma’s English language Twitter account was surreal to say the least this weekend, tweeting a number of brilliantly slapstick photoshops as well as a congratulations to Damien Delaney on his move to Cork City.
This poll, however, was our favourite.
Is humanity headed in the right direction?

The Newcastle United striker continued his form from his loan spell at Fulham with a hat-trick for Serbia against Bolivia – including this belter.
We never expected this from the former Chelsea man.
Continuing our theme of brilliant goals scored this weekend.
The USA drew 1-1 with France in Lyon, and had an excellent double save from Columbus Crew goalkeeper Steffen to thank.
No, not that one, but the 20-year-old defender scored a 97th-minute winner for LAFC in a 4-3 thriller against San Jose Earthquakes, and the scenes/sad faces on the opposition bench made us smile quite a lot.
Staying in MLS, 17-year-old Canadian Davies bagged a goal and three assists as Vancouver Whitecaps thrashed Orlando City 5-2 – and he could easily have completed a hat-trick of goals.

“TW*T! He must have a foot like a traction engine.”
From a nice moment between father and son to a textbook case of sibling rivalry.
