Sport <b>Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Sweden v England, November, selected by Sam Wallace</b><br/>
It would have been hard enough to pull off if he was facing goal with the ball sitting up nicely for him to hit. To lob Joe Hart with an overhead kick executed with his back to goal did rather put the ribbons on it.

The goal was one of four scored against England by the Sweden international

Ready To Wear: I personally wouldn&rsquo;t wear a white football shirt. Ever

Watching Joe Hart in the England game last week and his inky black shirt (pictured), decorated with almost unperceivable St George crosses, is verily the football shirt's answer to Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures, so discreet and even opaque is its beauty. And that is not surprising. Because if Peter Saville's original claim to fame was to turn the album sleeve into an art form he's now turned his hand to doing the same for the uniform of the nation's best-loved sport.

Casillas wrong to attack keepers, insists Banks

Gordon Banks has hit back at Iker Casillas' "disrespectful" claim that England's goalkeepers are not up to scratch. The Spain No 1 said earlier this week that David James, Rob Green and Joe Hart lacked the big-match pedigree to cut it at the World Cup.

McLeish signs up 'ambitious' Foster

Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish hopes Ben Foster can resurrect his career with a fresh start at St Andrews after signing the goalkeeper from Manchester United. The England international has agreed a three-year contract after moving for an undisclosed fee, reported to be £6m.

United delay Rooney's &#163;150,000-a-week deal

Manchester United will wait until the conclusion of the World Cup in July before beginning contract talks in earnest with Wayne Rooney, which suggests they believe there is categorically no risk of a superb tournament with England leading to more wealthy clubs enticing him away later this summer.

Foster forced to margins at United

England have been dealt a defensive boost that they badly needed ahead of the World Cup squad announcement with news that Wes Brown has returned to full training. Ben Foster, however, another player who had seemed a genuine England prospect, appears increasingly marginalised at Manchester United.
