And, of course, don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for the
WWE meets MOTDK, I don't know about you,
Well, before all of that, though, let's take a quick look at
the stories that have been making the headlines this week.
Manchester United survived a late scare
against Spanish visitors Celta Vigo on Thursday night and now they have
secured a place in the Europa League final.
Marouane Fellaini's goal proved enough to see the Reds
through where they will face Dutch giants Ajax.
And over in the Champions League, holders Real
Madrid will face Juventus in next month's final in Cardiff.
Can you spot the difference between these two?
People in the city of Hamadan certainly can't.
You would be forgiven for thinking both are photos of
Lionel Messi but actually one is Iranian student Reza Parastesh.
He had to be taken in by police last weekend because so many people
Well, to be fair, the resemblance was pretty
striking, even I would've got that one confused.
Well, another young man hitting the headlines recently was
No, not as another Messi lookalike but he
can certainly control the ball like him.
Last month, Tommy broke the record for completing ten Maradona
sevens in the fastest time, beating a previous
time set by our very own John Farnworth.
So, John went to meet him to find out how Tommy broke
The thing is, you have got my world record.
I know how hard that world record is.
Every day I asked my mum to take me to school a bit early and I
went out onto the tennis courts, I just practised it.
You have to be under perfect control, to do it in that
I've done a few records in my time and I
So, it is one touch with the left foot, right foot, left knee,
right knee, left shoulder, right shoulder, right shoulder, head.
I didn't really know much about freestyle
It sort of came about because I thought kick-ups were a
great way to improve your touch in football, your balance,
So I incorporated it into my practice and
when you are getting like over 1000, 2000,
I thought I need a change and
that is when my freestyle came in, I saw the tricks, I saw people like
you, the F2, doing the tricks and then I just had a go at them.
Who are your inspirations in football?
I have been a Chelsea fan all my life.
I would say my favourite player is definitely Hazard.
I practice as much as I possibly can.
In terms of hours but when I'm not practising training, I
And I will take it with me to the supermarket,
So it is hard to say exactly how many
hours a day I do of purposeful practice.
He is trying to go for a double around the world which is so
hard but he won't leave until he gets it.
I aways want to set myself new challenges but I haven't really
got a specific record I want to work to but I am definitely not done.
I would just work hard, never give up.
Always practice it and if you want something bad enough, keep working
Well, there is more from John in just a moment
with his player picks for today's women's FA Cup final.
And how about that for a world record, hey?
It's not just John and Tommy who have
been practising, you lot have also got some top skills.
Boys, I'm loving the teamwork so far and look, he's just
managed to get the ball into the bin.
I'm loving that little celebration there.
Don't tell me he's going to do it a third time.
Oh, he has made it, it is the triple crossbar
Brilliant goal, I think that one actually deserves a bit of a replay.
Now the next one is Frankie with his keepy uppies.
Now, Frankie managed 503 keepy uppies.
And I think it is quite fitting that he is wearing a Messi top.
And this one is Anyah, now, I am loving your skills.
Some top work there, Anyah, well done you.
Well, if you've got some super skills to show off here

today is at Wembley for the women's FA Cup final.
Birmingham City ladies, who won the trophy back in
2012, well, they will take on Manchester City women and here,
on the ones to watch out for, is our very own John Farnham.
Before we get to that, tell us about Tommy.
Honestly, he is brilliant, he has inspired me.

To think that she is a defender as well, look at that.
And, John, you've also got your eyes on one of their
key strikers, Toni Duggan, she scored a hat-trick in 18 minutes
against Bristol City, she is certainly on fine form

player in the Premier League and do you know what?

He is going to be there, cheering her on.
So, John, they are up against Birmingham City, they have
had an amazing cup run but who are the key
To start with, the youngster, Jess Carter has really caught my eye.
She has just been crowned young Player of the Year.
She is no doubt going to bring some quality to this game.
I tell you, Jess Carter is always in the right place at the right time
My one to watch, Seema, is Ellen White.
She, honestly, she has not been at Blues that long but
She sends Birmingham to Wembley, easy as
She scored the decisive goal in the penalty shoot
out against Chelsea and she's going to be one to watch in today's game.
So, if Toni Duggan scores and Ellen White, are you expecting
We could have lots of goals in today's games.
Well, John, you have been a superstar as always.
And, of course, good luck to both teams involved today.
It is set to be a record crowd for the final so I
am sure we will see a fantastic game.

front of big crowds are WWE superstars Sheamus and Sasha Banks.
But how would they fare against the mighty
I am going to take on the bucket list.
Everybody knows I am the greatest football fan in the WWE.
I mean, you should do the bucket list, then.
So bad, I don't even know where to start.
That didn't go anywhere according to plan.
Team Banks, you guys, you put on a great effort.
I have to say, great job, but there can
