Ex-goalkeeper Tim Wiese wants to be WWE's unbeatable bad guy

Tim Wiese says the fans can insult him as much as they like.

Goalkeeper-turned-wrestler Tim Wiese wants be "the bad guy" when he makes his official WWE debut in Munich next month.

What's more, he's been quick to warn his opponents: "I am unbeatable."

The former Hoffenheim and Germany player, 34, switched to wrestling after deciding that he "no longer cares two figs about football."

After extensive training, Wiese is ready for his full WWE debut alongside Cesaro and Sheamus. He told SID: "I will hurt the others -- they won't hurt me. Whoever takes...

Wayne Rooney captain debate is silly, Kimmich ace for Germany, Spain OK

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says Wayne Rooney's current form and style of play slow down the youngsters in the England squad.

One of the side effects of living in London and caring about football is that you're never far away from the Wayne Rooney debate. That applies to both versions: the Manchester United one and the England one, which has the delightful coda of also being a captaincy debate.

With this being an international break, the focus was firmly on the latter. Some papers called for him being stripped of the captaincy in favor of John Stones. Others revealed that he was going to be dropped for Tuesday's clash...

Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer hits himself in the face with a football

Quite rightly regarded as one of the best ball-playing goalkeepers in world football, Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer showed a rare lapse in concentration during Germany's routine 3-0 win over Czech Republic.

As the game moved into the final stages, Neuer was tasked with simply retrieving a loose ball from the back of his net -- a perfectly straightforward skill for a keeper of his calibre, or so you would think.

Germany make it look easy; 'machine' Gianluigi Buffon slips up vs. Spain

Gianluigi Buffon admitted that his indecisiveness led to his mistake which allowed Spain winger Vitolo to score the opener.
While Spain look good in World Cup Qualifying, ESPN FC's Paul Mariner is not convinced by their Group G rival Italy.

Iain Macintosh reviews the opening stanza to this international break to bring us this week's edition of Heroes and Villains.


Germany are making all of this look very easy. Another 3-0 win, their second in two qualifying games thus far, puts them top of Group C, a position they are simply unlikely to relinquish. The Czech Republic joined Norway in Germany's trophy collection, swept aside with barely a second thought. Joachim Low was the subject of considerable criticism for failing to...

Jogi Low looks for Muller and Gotze goals and Kroos' midfield partner

Germany boss Joachim Löw said he could see himself managing at the club level outside of the Bundesliga one day.
Thomas Tuchel says he was certain Gonzalo Castro would be selected for Germany's upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

In a series of interviews with German newspapers, Joachim Low declared himself still highly motivated and implicitly ready to consider a contract renewal beyond 2018.

The Bundestrainer came across as hugely content and genuinely excited about the future potential of his team. In the short-term, however, the 56-year-old has to contend with one of these annoying imbalances that international football tends to throw up all too often. Germany go into the World Cup qualifying matches against the Czech...

Thomas Muller answers critics with two goals vs. Norway to end drought

Thomas Muller netted two goals as Germany began their World Cup title defence with a win over Norway.

"It's good for me, people will leave me alone now," a beaming Thomas Muller said in Oslo as Germany began their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign on Sunday night.

The Bayern Munich forward's two goals against Norway, his 33rd and 34th for the Nationalmannschaft, helped the world champions to an easy 3-0 win and put an end to a scoring drought that only stretched three months but felt like an eternity.

It was Muller's failure to find the net at Euro 2016 in France, his failure to find goals where...
