Hello, footie fans.
Whether you are coming to the end of your school holidays
or are in the middle of them, we hope that you have
been having fun.
We're packing more treats into today's show then you can
shake an Easter egg at.
So, here's what's coming up.
He has won eight league titles and scored the winner
in the Champions League final.
Footie superstar Arjen Robben reveals what it takes
to make it to the top.
One of the world's best Fifa players gives you his top tips on gaming.
And The Vamps reveal their Dream Five-A-Side team.
So, lots to look forward to today.
Let's start with today's headline hitters.
It was the big El Clasico last weekend and Cristiano Ronaldo's late
goal gave Real Madrid a 2-1 victory over La Liga leaders, Barcelona.
But don't worry, Messi and Co, at least the youngsters came
out on top.
Yes, this was the under 11's El Clasico.
Barcelona won 2-0 and looking at the skills on show,
I don't think either club needs to worry about the next
generation of players.
Doncaster Rovers fans are not happy with One Direction
star Louis Tomlinson.
The League One club ran an online competition to design their new kit
and self-confessed fan Louis and his grandfather came out on top.
However, Louis's grandad has assured the fans
that he won't keep the prize.
I should hope so, too, Louis!
And finally, up to Scotland, where Rangers beat Dumbarton
earlier this week to seal promotion back to the Scottish Premiership
after a four-year absence.
James Tavernier's goal clinched a 1-0 victory at Ibrox to put
Rangers 17 points clear, crowning them winners
of the Scottish championship already.
European football is back this week, too.
Liverpool got a crucial away goal at the Europa League
with Dortmund as the drew 1-1 in Germany.
And Fernandinho's goal gave Man City a very credible 2-2
draw in the first leg of their Champions League
quarterfinal at Paris Saint-Germain.
A couple of important away goals again, there.
Elsewhere, their soon-to-be boss, Pep Guardiola, led Bayern Munich
to a 1-0 win against Benfica but they were without top Dutch
winger Arjen Robben.
Now, in my opinion he is one of the world's best.
This is a guy who has appeared in three World Cups
and won 20 trophies.
Not to mention scored some cracking goals.
We caught up with him recently for an exclusive interview.
Check this out.
Robben, brilliant from him.
It is Arjen Robben.
And it is 1-0, Netherlands.
Clinical again from Arjen Robben.
What type of player were you back then?
I think just the dribbling type.
Just with the ball on my feet.
Just dribbling, dribbling, dribbling.
Did you pass the ball much?
No, that's what I was going to say, I didn't pass the ball a lot!
You played for possibly the best Premier League team of all time.
You won La Liga with Real Madrid.
You won the Champions League with Bayern Munich in 2013.
But is this current team the best of the lot?
I had the privilege to play in a lot of great teams and for the last two
years, you can see it with the titles we have won,
winning the Champions League, scoring the winning goal
in the last-minute.
I think that is just any little boy's dream.
Did you ever believe you would go on to become one
of Europe's best ever wingers?
At a young age I was not really a dreamer.
I was just focused on playing and training and trying
to improve myself everyday.
I think that is what you need to become a professional
To be humble and work hard every day.
Charge here from Arjen Robben, to finish the game off!
And he has finished it off, surely?
It is nine years since you left the Premier league.
The big story this season is involving a man who played a key
role in your signing for Chelsea in the first place.
That was Claudio Ranieri.
Nobody would have mentioned Leicester as a title favourite.
But I am very happy for them, especially for the manager,
he is a great guy.
There are always surprises and that is the nice
thing about football.
If you were a schoolboy now, which player would you have
posters of on your wall?
Like every little kid, it is not a surprise to say
I think it is Messi for me.
He is still the best.
Can Robben control this?
How old were you when you first cut inside onto your left foot and right
footed it into the far corner?
I don't know, I think that just developed over the years.
I think it was only when I became a professional player
because in youth I was always playing in the middle.
But I think it really started when I played at Chelsea.
Even more in Madrid and in the end, of course, for Bayern Munich.
It just grew, yes.
What a great guy!
And some brilliant advice on how to make it as a top player.
Moving onto the Premier league and his former club, Chelsea,
travel to Swansea this afternoon after news that they have appointed
Italy coach Antonio Conte as their new manager
for next season.
Their London rivals, Tottenham, will hope to pull back
some points in the title race against Man United.
Whilst Arsenal face West Ham.
And will it be another 1-0 win for Leicester after finishing five
of their last six games like that?
They have a tricky tie at relegation threatened Sunderland.
And things are hotting up in the championship with just over
one month of the season to go.
There is not much separating the top three.
Burnley take my boys, the mighty Leeds United,
although we're not doing so well at the moment.
Later on today.
Whilst Middlesbrough face Preston and hot on their heels,
Brighton travel to Forest on Monday.
But enough of that because we all know the big games this weekend
weekend involve you lot.
As usual, we have had some brilliant stuff.
Riley, age seven, off to watch his team, Leyton Orient FC,

Get in, there!
I am amazing at football games.
I'm pretty sure there is no one else in the world who can
actually beat me.
I'm certain that I can!
What makes you so special?
Well, I am a professional Fifa player.
I am signed to a football club and I finished second
in the World Championships.
Meet one of the world's best Fifa players.
He has been playing at professional level since he was 17 and so good
that he has been signed by German club Wolfsburg as official gamer.
He wears their gear and represents them in entering tournaments.
He is the one scoring all the goals here!
Well, 4-0, half-time, I think the score says it all.
You are pretty amazing that this game.
How did you get so good?
First, I started beating my friends online and eventually I started
beating them so easily that I just tried to get
some leagues to play in.
And I came across the country's best players, who told me
all about this side of the game.
At first you have to put a lot of practice to get that good.
I was playing a few hours a day but now that I am at the top level,
I just play between three and five games per day.
Being signed to Wolfsburg, what does that actually mean?
Every couple of weeks, I have to travel over
to Germany and get to see their home games,
which is pretty good.
Do you play any other games like Football Manager or Pro Evo?
I am a big fan of football manager.
I will try and play it.
We know that you went to the World Cup.
What was it exactly that you got up to?
Thankfully, for me, it was alongside the actual World Cup.
It was an absolutely amazing experience.
I finished second in the World Championships.
It was a day before my 21st birthday and I got to see Germany
against France in the quarterfinal.
It was unbelievable.
How about that for a birthday present?
In the final game, I took the lead.
I was in a situation where I thought, do I just defend this?
I carried on playing and then they scored two corners,
and after that I was furious with myself.
And I ended up going on to lose 3-1.
Number two is obviously a great achievement but for me,
I am just a competitive person, number two is still a loss.
We got to go to the Ballon d'Or in Switzerland and the got to meet
Messi and Ronaldo, all these amazing people.
Next time, that's going to be me!
If David is going to become number one, he will have
to beat some of this lot.
32 of the world's best gamers met at the Fifa Interactive World Cup
2016 grand final last month in New York.
Mohamad Al-Bacha was crowned the eventual champion after beating
England's Sean Alan in a final with a last-minute winner.
Shall we finish?

It was lovely meeting you.
But you crack on.
4-0 at half-time?!
I don't blame you for giving up on that one, Tyler!

of the UK's top pop bands to tell us their team.

One, Barthez, he used to play for Manchester United.
He has a great style.
And it is saved by Barthez!
In defence, we're going to go Gary Neville.
Strong shoulders, he also used to play for Man United.
David Beckham because he has got some good corners.
Up front we're going to go with Alan Shearer.
He has got good headers and can take the chest down
And you have to say, it is magnificent!
The last player?
I think it has got to be one of us!
Connor completes the team!
That's our team!
That was great, though Barthez?
