BT Sport posted this video of their #BeatTheBin Challenge.  It features ‘ballers Didier Drogba (looking very natty in his suit), Rio Ferdinand, Robin Van Persie, Robbie Savage, Philipp Lahm, David Luiz along with our own G-Money, Jesé, Varane and Isco trying to kick a soccer ball into a trash bin.

And Tim Howard vs Belgium. So many memorable moments. Continue reading
