Roger Federer: Muaaahhh!!! Continue that killer game boy.

Did you know that Singapore once banned Popeye from TV in mid 1980s because they thought it promoted incorrect usage of English grammar!

Nice Fun Facts!

The Goal movie trilogy was made with active co-operation from FIFA. Many big players like Zidane, Beckham, Raul, Shearer were playing themselves in the movies. The third part is yet to be released.
