Barcelona had it all to do in the second leg as they had a 4 goal deficit to undo and did they make a good effort. In fact this has to be the biggest comeback in football. 
We need to check the history books on that. 

Barcelona had a mammoth task on their hands as they bid to qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals.
The Blaugrana hosted PSG tonight knowing they must produce one of the most memorable nights in the club’s history to remain in the competition and they did.

Luis Enrique’s men were battered in Paris last month, going down to a 4-0 loss in the French capital.

Cristiano Ronaldo wins the best FIFA men’s player 2016

Cristiano Ronaldo wins the best FIFA men’s player 2016
Cristiano Ronaldo wins the best FIFA men’s player 2016

Real Madrid talisman and striker Cristiano Ronaldo undoubtedly had a great 2016. He won just about every trophy possible last year, leading Portugal to their first ever European Championship, Real Madrid to the Champions League trophy, and he scored goals by the truckload on the way to the silverware.
Ronaldo scored 48 goals for club and country in 2016, grabbing three goals for Portugal on their way to the European title, and the match-winning penalty for Madrid as they beat Atletico Madrid in a shootout in the Champions League final.

As such, it was no surprise to hear his name called as the winner of The Best FIFA Men’s Player 2016, which was decided by a combined voting process with 50 percent of votes from captains and head coaches from national teams around the globe. The other 50 percent was split between an online public ballot with fans and submissions from a selected group of over 200 journalists around the world.

There really wasn’t much of a competition, and Lionel Messi didn’t even show up at the awards ceremony to pretend he felt he was in the running. 

Either way, Ronaldo’s deserving of his latest accolades, and they just keep rolling in. It’s his fourth FIFA POY award (the first in the current format). After Ronaldo won the Ballon d’Or last month, his latest honor from FIFA was just as predictable as the rest, and that’s just a testament to the year CR7 had.

Congratulations Ronaldo

Sports News: Carlos Tevez Becomes World’s Highest Paid Soccer Player, Earning $808,000 A Week

Carlos Tevez – Highest Paid Player

Former Juventus, Mancity and Manchester United soccer player Carlos Tevez signed a new $41 million a year contract with Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua, making him the highest paid soccer player in the world.
The Chinese Super League club paid an $11 million transfer fee to his former club, Boca Juniors, as part of the new two-year deal. The breakdown of this monumental deal is as follows: a gross of $808,000 a week, which works out to $115,000 a day. Or $4,800 an hour. Or $80 a minute.
The $808,000 per week is well over the measly $430,000 a week that Cristiano Ronaldo currently gets.
Of course, Tevez’s Argentinian teammate Lionel Messi will likely become the world’s highest paid player when he’s due for a new contract in the Summer of 2018, but for the time being no player is raking in the type of money that Carlos Tevez is in China.

Video: SWANSEA VS CHELSEA 2-2 (PREMIER LEAGUE 2016) (GOALS AND HIGHLIGHTS)

Chelsea were the dominant force in the first-half but it really could have gone either way in the second 45 minutes as both teams attacked with determination and no little skill.

Diego Costa broke the deadlock as he ball is whipped in and Fabianski failed to command his area as Fernandez’s weak header lands at the feet of Oscar, whose control and pass across the edge of the box to Costa is sublime and the Brazilian fires into the bottom-right corner

Sigurdsson broke through onto a ball over the top and, just inside the box, Courtois, running out from his line, slides in and brings the Icelander down. The ball was going away from goal so Courtois gets just a yellow but is unable to save the spot-kick as Sigurdsson fires the ball into the back of the net

Terry played the ball across the back to Cahill, who dawdles on the ball, and the onrushing Fer steals possession and has a clear run on goal. He bears down on Courtois and just about manages to slip the ball through the keeper’s legs… the ball bobbling over the line.

Replays suggested Cahill may have been fouled. But the goal stands

And Chelsea equaliser came as Ivanovic shot, was blocked by Fabianski and the ball pings in the air across goal where Costa is lurking and the Spaniard tees himself up before producing an overhead kick straight into the back of the net.

Actually, it may have taken a slight defelection off Fernandez, but he’s certainly claiming it… and you can’t blame him. Brilliant! His second of the match

Manchester United Re-sign France Midfielder Paul Pogba For £89m

Manchester United have completed their transfer of Paul Pogba from Juventus for a world record transfer fee of £89m.

The French international has completed his medical at the club and signed a five-year deal, with the 105m Euros fee also potentially increasing through several add-on clauses.

“I am delighted to rejoin United,” said Pogba. “It has always been a club with a special place in my heart and I am really looking forward to working with Jose Mourinho.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Juventus and have some fantastic memories of a great club with players that I count as friends.

“But I feel the time is right to go back to Old Trafford. I always enjoyed playing in front of the fans and can’t wait to make my contribution to the team. This is the right club for me to achieve everything I hope to in the game.”

The 23-year-old left United for Juventus in 2012 having made just seven senior appearances in all competitions for the Premier League club, all from the bench.

Sky sources understand Manchester United will not pay Juventus’ agent’s fee.

Regarding the transfer, Mourinho said:

“Paul is one of the best players in the world and will be a key part of the United team I want to build here for the future.

“He is quick, strong, scores goals and reads the game better than many players much older than he is. At 23, he has the chance to make that position his own here over many years.

“He is young and will continue to improve; he has the chance to be at the heart of this club for the next decade and beyond.”

If you recall before now Pogba had partied with Canadian Rapper Drake

The ‘bromance’ between Drake and Paul Pogba continues to blossom after the pair were pictured leaving a New York nightclub in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The American rapper and the world’s most wanted footballer have been hanging out this week, with Pogba handing Drake a signed Juventus shirt with his name on the back after attending a concert in Madison Square Garden.

The dynamic duo shared each other’s company once more to welcome in the weekend, with Manchester United target Pogba joining Drake at Beautique Lounge in New York
