Captain Gianluigi Buffon returned from injury to replace Salvatore Sirigu in goal, while Thiago Motta replaced Marco Verratti in midfield, and right-back Ignazio Abate was picked ahead of Gabriel Paletta. Costa Rica were unchanged following their 3-1 win over Uruguay.Celso Borges headed over Buffon's crossbar from a corner as Costa Rica made the early running, while Thiago Motta shot wide before the half-hour mark at the other end.Soon after, Mario Balotelli lifted a close-range chip over goalkeeper ...
"There will be no signings until after the World Cup. We're in no rush and we don't need to do a lot of business", Carlo Ancelotti stated before jetting off on holiday, hinting that goings-on in Brazil could yet determine which players the club bids for. Paul Pogba, Arturo Vidal, Toni Kroos and Marco Verratti are among the figures Real are believed to be keeping a close eye on at the World Cup. And then there's Luis Suárez, the 'Galáctico' forward the club would love to line up alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema to form a dream frontline. The Uruguayan star is under Real scrutiny in Brazil. The club has no doubts over his ability, but his price tag - the new Liverpool contract he signed at the end of last year includes a €94m release clause - means any move for the striker will not be made lightly. Especially considering he has just come back from a tricky knee operation that could have ended his World Cup before it began. 'Los Blancos' want to be sure they will get their full ...
My realistic top 10 transfers and loans: 1. Leon Osman, 32yrs old but is still a decent player (buy) 2. Carlos Marchena, 34yrs old could be a good (is it worth a risk) 3. Nathan Aké, 19yrs old cover for Mulumbu and Claudio Yacob (loan) 4. Marco van Ginkel, 21yrs old, could be a great partnership along side Anichebe (loan) 5. Marco Verratti, 21yrs old, cover for sessengon and dorrans (loan) 6. Nathan Delfouneso, 23yrs old, could be cover for Anichebe and van Ginkel (buy) 7. Rio Ferdinand, 35yrs old, has one year left in him worth the purchase to cover olsson or gmac (buy) 8. Jermaine Jenas, 31yrs old has around four years left in him could play on the right wing. 9. Tony Hibbert, 31yrs old, plays right back for everton worth the purchase.(buy) 10. Liam Rosenoir, 29yrs old, can play either RB or LB would be an ideal purchase so he can cover left back and bradley garmston can cover.(buy)
Italy made the first substitution of the match when they introduced Thiago Motta into the game to replace Marco Verratti just minutes after Mario Balotelli gave Italy a 2-1 lead over England.
TEAM NEWS: Gigi Buffon and Mattia de Sciglio miss out through injury, meaning that PSG's Salvatore Sirugu takes up his position in between the sticks and Matteo Darmian slots in as right-back.

Marco Verratti is preferred in midfield, with Claudio Marchisio and Antonio Candreva the willing runners.

FIFA World Cup finals history With four world titles to their name (1934, 1938, 1982 and 2006) and two runners-up slots (1970 and 1994), Italy lie second only to Brazil on the all-time FIFA World Cup honours board. La Squadra Azzurra are also the only team along with the Brazilians to have won the competition twice in a row. Their 4-3 semi-final defeat of West Germany at Mexico 1970 is widely regarded as one of the most spectacular matches in the history of the tournament. The key players Captain and goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is the only survivor from their 2006 triumph in Germany along with Andrea Pirlo, while a host of youngsters have broken into the team, such as central defender Andrea Ranocchia and midfielder Marco Verratti. Up front, the transition from old to new has been even more dramatic thanks to the emergence of Stephan El Shaarawy and Giuseppe Rossi's return to the fore. Also with a vital role to play are the maverick duo of Mario Balotelli and Pablo Osvaldo. Coach: Cesare Prandelli Best pe ...

Cabaye Not Getting Much Playing Time At PSG!! There is a report in L’Equipe tonight, about how little playing time Yohan Cabaye is getting at PSG, since his £20M signing from Newcastle United last month. PSG hae played six games since Yohan arrived in Paris and he has stated only one game against Valenciennes and has a total of 180 minutes of time on the pitch, which averages out at 30 minutes a game. But when you join a new club, especially a big one, you don’t expect to go straight into the starting line-up, and it takes time to settle in. But the worry for Cabaye is that PSG have Italian Internationals Thiago Motta and Marco Verratti, and French star Blaise Matuidi, a former Newcastle United target as his current midfield competition. And there’s also 18 year-old French U21 International Adrien Rabiot, who is coming through like a steam train this season at the French club. The L’Equipe article surmises that it may be difficult for Cabaye to be a starter at the upcoming World Cup for France in ...

Tranfer Rumours : Cabaye won't leave Newcastle this season. talkSPORT's French football expert Julien Laurens claims Newcastle star Yohan Cabaye is set to stay at St James' Park - despite interest from PSG. "It seems Yohan Cabaye is a bit reluctant to join Paris Saint-Germain," he told Hawksbee and Jacobs. "He's thinking about the longer term. "He knows PSG will probably get Pogba in the summer, that's their main objective. Cabaye thinks that, if he goes there, he'll have to compete with Pogba, Marco Verratti, Blaise Matuidi and Thiago Motta for a place in the midfield. "His chances to play will be reduced and he doesn't want that. "He's happy at Newcastle," he added. "They're doing well in the league this year and he's reconsidering a move." Read more at
More likely Blaise Matuidi or better still, Marco Verratti was the focus of any discussion with PSG. If it ever happened at all

+ Hull City have agreed an undisclosed fee with Everton to buy striker Nikica Jelavic. The Croatian forward has played second fiddle to Romelu Lukaku under new Toffees boss Roberto Martinez and is understood to favour a move away with a World Cup around the corner. The 28-year-old scored twice in Everton's 4-0 FA Cup win over QPR and Martinez did suggest he may have a future in Merseyside. However, a move to the Tigers now appears on the cards with boss Steve Bruce known to be looking for a striker in the transfer window. PSV will make a bid to sign Fulham's Bryan Ruiz on loan after Rene Meulensteen confirmed he will allow the playmaker to leave Craven Cottage.

AGENT BRONZETTI EXPECTS JUVENTUS TO SELL POGBA TO PSG, Italian super agent Enzo Bronzetti doubts Paul Pogba will stay with Juventus long-term. Pogba is a top target for PSG . But Bronzetti told Mediaset: "Paul Pogba will certainly stay with Juventus. If they get an offer of €50-60 million, the Bianconeri cannot say no, because Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici are skilled to find worthy substitutes. "I think that in the coming months they may reach a preliminary renewal then the sale in the summer. In the deal, however, I do not think they can include Marco Verratti. At PSG, Blaise Matuidi could leave, who is also managed by Mino Raiola."
Manchester United have called a meeting of their European scouts this week at Carrington. Around 16 staff are due in Manchester to deliver their reports on potential targets as manager David Moyes goes over the standard required. Moyes wants five or six players in the summer and still remains hopeful of signing one or two this window. United have a poor track record in recruiting world-class players over recent seasons with Robin van Persie their only one of note since Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo. Moyes also recognises the dearth of young talent, apart from Adnan Januzaj. He is wary of recruiting any players that do not move United on significantly and is being assiduous in his selection of the right candidates. Despite proclamations to the contrary, he has already ruled out bids for Atletico Madrid’s Koke, Cruzeiro’s Everton Ribeiro and Paris Saint-Germain pair Blaise Matuidi and Marco Verratti. However, he remains interested in Ander Herrera of Athletic Bilbao and scouts watched him play agai ...

Daniele De Rossi has returned to the Italy squad ahead of their friendlies with Germany and Nigeria. The Roma midfielder was forced to withdraw from the Azzurri's October fixtures with injury but, as expected, will be available for selection at San Siro against Joachim Low's men on November 15 and at Craven Cottage against the reigning Africa Cup of Nations winners. Marco Verratti suffered discomfort in his left knee ahead of Paris Saint-Germain's win over Nice on Saturday and is omitted from Italy head coach Cesare Prandelli's squad. Another notable absentee is injured Giorgio Chiellini, though Juventus team-mates Gianluigi Buffon, Andrea Barzagli, Angelo Ogbonna, Leonardo Bonucci and Andrea Pirlo make the grade. Roma full-back Federico Balzaretti, Cagliari's Davide Astori, Sampdoria midfielder Lorenzo Di Silvestri and Fiorentina midfielder Alberto Aquilani are all dropped.

Alonso-Verratti swap proposed Real Madrid have reportedly put forward to Paris Saint-Germain the prospect of swapping Xabi Alonso with Marco Verratti. The young Italian international is reportedly former PSG and new Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti’s primary request for midfield this transfer window. Reports from Italy today suggest that Los Blancos are looking at ways to try and pick up the 20-year-old, who is otherwise in contract renewal talks with the French side. One hypothesis apparently put forward to the Parc des Princes outfit has been to send Xabi Alonso to them in part exchange for the youngster. Alonso, who has put off contract renewal talks at the Santiago Bernabeu until later in the year, is currently going to be a free agent in June 2014. The former Liverpool man is also reportedly a target this summer of former Madrid boss Jose Mourinho’s new team Chelsea.

Arsenal've made a stunning bid to buy Marco Verratti from PSG for a reported sum of 30m.
Strongly disagree. Marco Verratti had never played top-flight football before this season and look where he is now.
Our Analysis of Real Madrid's transfer plans. *First on the list is Isco who's beyond any doubt a great player and his performances in the European U-21 Championship proved he's destined for greatness. But the fact is there's simply no room in the squad for him with Mesut Özil, Luka Modric and possibly Jesé already on board. *Second is Tottenham's Gareth Bale: The Welshman has been described by many as the third best player in the world behind only Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi. The winger's outstanding form last season makes him worthy of a place on Real Madrid's right wing and with Di Maria inconsistent form, Bale looks set to be "Florentino's 11th Galactico". *Real Madrid's persistent need for a world class striker is the most problematic as such players are very few. There's been talk of Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani and even Robert Lewandowski. If I could choose freely I'd say Lewandowski but the player looks closer to Bayern Munich. As for Suarez his football speaks for itself but he's a very cont ...

European U21 Championship ITALY U21 BEAT ENGLAND U21 Italy beat England 1-0 in Tel Aviv on Wednesday evening to move to the top of European Under-21 Championship Group A. A second-half free-kick by Lorenzo Insigne was enough to separate the sides and Stuart Peace's men can have few complaints. With Israel and Norway drawing 2-2 earlier in the opener it provided the winner of the late kick-off with the chance to claim top spot in the group. England came into the game without conceding a goal in nine matches but started far more anxiously than their opponents and the Italians dominated for large periods of the first- half with Paris Saint- Germain's Marco Verratti the pick of their players. Liverpool forward Fabio Borini and Ciro Immobile were causing problems too with their movement and Immobile had the games first chance leaving Craig Dawson for dead before firing wide. Alessandro Florenzi started to enjoy himself more down the right as the half went on first setting up the equally impressive Insigne on t ...

My career best buys: GK: Fraser Forster (Cetic) - Only got him on loan and he was amazing, haven't bought him yet. RB: Kyle Walker (Spurs) - Usually around 10M, in 3 seasons he has went from a 79 to an 84. CB: Mats Hummels (Dortmund) - Usually around 15M, well worth the money though, has reached a 90 CB for me before. CB: Papadopoulos (Schalke) - Again, quite expensive at around 15M, but well worth the cash. LB: Santon (Newcastle) - 8M, from level 80 - 83 in 2 seasons. CM: Gundogan (Dortmund) - Around 11M, worth every pixel. CM: Marco Verratti (PSG) - Only had him on loan, heard he can get up to around 86. LM: Draxler (Schalke) - Only 18, quite expensive. But what a player. RM: Patricio Rodríguez (Santos) - Pretty cheap as I have got him for less than 5M. Gets up to around 84. ST: M’Baye Niang (Milan) - Reasonably expensive, but at the age of 17 and showing great potential what can you expect? ST: Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea) - We all know who this is. What a player, what a beast. Around 12M. Who are your b ...

BECK SET TO START VS VALENCIA: David Beckham has been included in Paris Saint-Germain's 20-man squad for the Champions League last-16 second leg tie with Valencia on Wednesday night. PSG are aiming to make the quarter-final stage of the competition for the first time since 1995 and hold a 2-1 lead from the first leg. However, Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be absent from the side through suspension after being sent off in the first leg with a red card, and receiving a two-game European ban. Marco Verratti is also missing through suspension while Jeremy Menez does not make the trip to Spain due to injury. David Beckham is one of Britain's most iconic athletes whose name is also an elite global advertising brand. He was captain of the English national team from 1998 to 2009, scored in three different FIFA World Cups, and played midfield for clubs in Manchester, England, Madrid, Spain, and Milan, Italy; he also won the MLS Cup playing for Los Angeles Galaxy in 2011 and 2012.

Champions League ROUND OF 16: HALFTIME Valencia 0 - PSG 2 My thoughts: PSG is so much better than Valencia. PSG have a solid, unbreakable defense. PSG have a fast, dangerous midfield who can get a counterattack to start. PSG also have Zlatan Ibrahimovic! PSG had less possesion but were still the better team. Valencia keeper Vicente Guaita is having a horrible game. He could have stopped Lavezzi's and Pastore's shots which turned into goals. Also Valencia most attacking players are full backs Andrés Guardado (makeshift position, usually attacking mid) and Joao Pereira. PSG deserve this result so far. PSG's midfielder Marco Verratti is having a great game and looks to be competition for David Beckham. 10th- GOAL! Ezequiel Lavezzi (PSG) 31st- Yellow Card for Joao Pereira (Val) and Marco Verratti (PSG) 41st- GOAL! Javier Pastore (PSG) -AH10
brilliantly written article by on Marco Verratti
Great read from on how Marco Verratti is the heir to Andrea Pirlo
Marchisio lauds PSG´s Verratti 8 February 2013 14:47 Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio has praised PSG's Marco Verratti and compared him to fellow Italy international Andrea Pirlo. Verratti impressed in Italy's 1-1 friendly draw against Netherlands on Wednesday after coming off the bench at half-time, and Marchisio believes the 20-year-old has a bright future ahead of him. "Marco is still young and has room for improvement, but he already has a lot of quality," Marchisio told La Stampa. "He is the player who is most similar to Pirlo. Andrea is a great player and still has plenty of years to play. We would be happy if he played for us forever, but Marco has some great qualities in his role, too. "Will Verratti ever play for Juventus? I am in no position to answer that. The transfer market is open twice per year, so there's always a chance." Verratti joined PSG from Pescara in 2012 and has a contract with the Ligue 1 side until June 2017.
Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio is a big fan of Paris Saint-Germain’s Marco Verratti. “He’s the closest thing to Andrea Pirlo.”
Marco Verratti came off the bench to earn Italy a dramatic and undeserved 1-1 draw against the Netherlands in Amsterdam on Wednesday. Jeremain Lens' wonderful volley appeared certain to earn the Dutch a first ever friendly win over Italy, but the visitors levelled matters in the first minute of injury time through their Paris Saint-Germain playmaker. The Netherlands dominated the opening half hour, with Adam Maher twice drawing wonderful reaction saves out of veteran Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. Click link for full story.

Italy boss Cesare Prandelli says Stephan El Shaarawy and Marco Verratti will be part of his Confederations Cup squad. There were doubts whether the two would appear in the tournament next summer given that the Italian Under-21 side will be fighting for the European title at the end of this season too. “I still need to speak with Under-21 boss Devis Mangia,” Prandelli told the Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview. “The Euro Under-21 Finals are important, but the national side is the priority. We’ll divide the players and I think I’ll have El Shaarawy and Verratti with me. “A lot of people criticised El Shaarawy after his debut in the England friendly, but I saw a real player. “I told him to go and give his best for Milan and we would see each other again. I didn’t need him to score 14 goals. “Verratti? I wanted to take Francesco Lodi to the European Championship.
