Then came the European Championship in June where perennial under-achievers Spain stole the limelight and emerged champions.And who can forget about the epic tussle of Cristiano Ronaldo between Manchester United and Real Madrid that hogged the sporting headlines every single day during off-season?Asthe world focus its attention on the Olympics held in Beijing, the newest EPL season started on a quiet note with the Big Four ??

He wrote, ??Right back??. Unbelievable!3) Manchester United great Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who just had his testimonial match last month, once trained as a wrestler before he became a soccer player.
