7 things you might have missed from day 10 of the World Cup

It’s been yet another brilliant day at the World Cup in Russia.

Germany scored a 95th minute winner to rescue their chances of defending their global crown, Mexico sent South Korea crashing out and Belgium laid down a real marker against Tunisia.

But looking away from the headlines and there may be some things that you missed.

Didier Drogba provided a brilliant insight as to why it never worked out for Kevin De Bruyne at Chelsea, Ricky Gervais and Piers Morgan actually agreed on something and Sweden’s real villain was exposed.

Here are seven things you may have missed from day 10 at 2018 World Cup in Russia…

1. Remember Marko Marin? Didier Drogba does

Somewhat famously, it didn’t work out for Kevin De Bruyne at Chelsea.

The Belgian genius has had the last laugh though, going on to star for his country and lift the Premier League title with Manchester City.

They still remember him at Stamford Bridge though, and on the BBC ahead of Belgium’s game with Tunisia a couple of Chelsea legends were discussing why it never worked out for him in west London.

"The problem he had was there was an embarrassment of riches for Chelsea," said Frank Lampard.

"They had Hazard, Oscar, Mata, Schurrle…" he continued, only to be interrupted by Drogba saying "Marko Marin", which only made Lampard laugh.

Do you reckon they didn’t rate the little German who played just 16 times for the Blues before being shipped out on four different loan moves?

3. Some strong social media game from Manchester United

The World Cup can be a tough time for the biggest clubs, with all the attention focused on the international game and not much to report bar the odd transfer or two.

4. Is it a bird? Is it a pla… oh actually yeah, it is a bird

What a photo.

5. Everyone loves how much Javier Hernandez loves Mexico

It’s the World Cup, who doesn’t like a bit of passion? Javier Hernandez, however, has raised the bar spectacularly.

6. Proof that football really can bring people together

Piers Morgan and Ricky Gervais agreeing on something? Surely not. Yet here they are on the same wavelength.

Oh, football. You’ve done it again.

7. Sweden’s real villain

With Sweden 1-1 against Germany and one draw with Mexico away from reaching the last-16, John Guidetti only needed to go to the corner when he had the ball in the opposing half. Instead, the former Manchester City striker shot from a ridiculous angle and gave possession back to Germany…who then scored.
