Good morning, footie fans.
It's another epic FA Cup weekend.
We look forward the action and we've got goals goal to show you, too.
-- goals galore.
Here's what's coming up.
A certain Mr Rooney broke Sir Bobby Charlton's scoring
record last weekend.
We'll bring you Wazza's top five goals.
Have you ever wondered what happens when footballers get bad injuries?
We meet the surgeon who rebuilds knees - ouch!
- and gets pros back on the pitch.
And who's the best dancer at Manchester City?
Find out with our exclusive interview with superstar
defender John Stones.
All that to come and, of course, we'll be giving you the lowdown
on this weekend's FA Cup fourth round fixtures.
There have been some cracking goals so far in this year's competition
but if you're looking for the best FA Cup goal ever, you could do a lot
worse than this scorcher.
In a dream five-a-side team, Trev would obviously be supplying
the spectacular volleys but who would he choose
to pick out the passes?
Here's the man himself to tell us, only with a bit less hair!
My all-time five-a-side team would be, in net,
Fabien Barthez says.
I like him a lot.
I feel he had everything it takes to be a goalkeeper.
A lot of charisma and won a World Cup.
Still play against him now in certain testimonials.
He's an absolute machine.
He's probably ten years older than me and still fit as a fiddle.
Never makes a mistake and, obviously, won the World Cup
a couple of times.
Horrible to play against so I'd like him in my team now, please.
I'm going to go in midfield because that's a necessity for this team.
I'm going to go alongside the great number seven wearer
of Manchester United, George Best.
I watched him a lot growing up and, obviously, the story
behind him and what he did...
It comes to Best.
Either Lionel Messi or Ronaldo.
I'd go for Lionel Messi.
One, it's a five-a-side team.
Two because he is absolutely incredible,
and three, I want to know if he's actually a human
or if he's an alien.
That's my team and I hope you enjoyed it.
But you know, you're not the only one with some tricks in your locker.
Check these out!
First up, it's Jadyn.
She curls in a corner and in it comes.
Yes, it's gone in!
What a goal.
And what's James up to here?
Oh, it's straight in the bin.
Have that one!
Surely George can't be thinking of scoring from there?
Oh, yes, he can.
It's gone in!
Not satisfied with one stunner in a game, it's George
with an outrageous long ranger.
Pick that out!
And finally, here's Christian with some very nimble
and very nifty footwork.
Yes, keep up those drills and skills, Christian.
Please keep them coming in.
But now, it's time to catch up on this week's more
unusual footie stories.
It's our Headline Hitters.
When their game against Crawley Town was postponed, last weekend,
Portsmouth defender Christian Burgess tweeted
that he was at a loose end, which prompted the enterprising
coach of a local under 12s' side to jokingly invite him to come along
and help with training, and guess what - he only
went and turned up!
Good on you, Christian!
I think Scottish club St Johnstone may have just released the best
football lip-synched video ever.
Well, OK, the competition isn't that great but check out this impeccable
mining to an obscure '90s pop song called Blue!
It's all in the hope of getting fans to turn up to the next game
against Hamilton Academical in their home colours, which are,
of course, read the.
No, I'm only kidding.
Someone else who made the headlines this week was Mr Wayne Rooney.
His last-minute goal at Stoke didn't quite break the net
but it did break a record.
Footballing legend Sir Bobby Charlton scored 249 goals
for Man United throughout his career but our Wazza has just
scored his 250th!
Let's take a closer look.
That mighty right foot of his is his favourite but he's
also netted 27 off his left peg plus 30 with his head!
And Wayne can bang them in from anywhere, scoring 213
inside the box but also 37 outside of it.
And he's a bit of a dead ball specialist, too,
with 26 penalties and six direct free kicks, including that stunner
against Stoke that broke the record.
Impressive stuff, but let's cut to the chase.
Of all of those 250, which are his best?
Here's our choice of the top five.
Ronaldo, disguised ball to Rooney.
Here goes Ronaldo.
Rooney to his left hand side, gets to the right.
Wayne Rooney for Manchester United.
What a goal.
Oh, what a goal.
It's back with Wayne Rooney!
What a goal!
That is a superb strike.
He's beaten to it and it's away.
Here's Rooney with the turn.
Rooney goes for the extraordinary!
Oh, and it's an unbelievable goal from Wayne Rooney!
Ramage's header falls to Rooney.
It's another one for the gallery of superb Wayne Rooney goals!
Scholes can keep United moving here.
That is very, very special and that is Wayne Rooney.
And I'm sure he'll be looking to add to his tally as United take on Wigan
in the Cup tomorrow.
Like all footballers, Rooney's had his share of injuries
over the years but there's one injury players dread most of all.
We sent Ben to find out what it is and to meet
a man who can fix it.
Midfielder Chris Brunt has been a key player for West Brom
for nearly ten years.
He also has over 50 caps for his country, Northern Ireland,
and helped them to qualify for the Euros last summer.
But just when he was looking forward to his first major international
tournament, this happened.
Brunt is in real pain.
It's the back of his right knee, and he yelped as he went down.
We were doing OK.
I think we were 3-0 up at the time and then it was just a loose
ball and I think I read that he was going to miss it
and changed direction at the last minute and,
obviously, it was too much for my knee to take
and I just went down.
It was really sore for a couple of minutes and then went numb
and when you can't feel your leg after five minutes, it's
probably not a good sign.
Chris Brunt had torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.
But he's not the only one to have suffered that injury.
Everton's Yannick Bolasie has just been told he won't play for a whole
year whilst he recovers from the same thing and,
if you're a female player, you're even more likely
to suffer this injury.
Chelsea's Claire Rafferty has done it twice.
But what and where is an anterior cruciate ligament, and how do
you fix it if it's damaged?
It's time for us to find out.
Professor Sanj Jari is a top surgeon who has operated
on lots of sports people over the years, including footballers.
He's an expert on fixing this kind of injury.
Hi, nice to meet you.
Come and have a seat.
Thank you very much.
I know that you've treated lots of top professional footballers
with this serious injury.
Can you tell me more about the anterior cruciate ligament?
So, there are two cruciate ligaments.
This one here is called the anterior cruciate ligament and then
there is another one at the back of the knee called
the posterior cruciate ligament.
The typical thing that will happen is your knee will bend a little bit
and then your knee rotates and this top part of the knee comes out
of place and as that happens, the ACL will stretch
and it will tear.
25 years ago, it was a career-ending injury.
If I'd torn my ACL, what would you do to reconstruct my knee?
To start with, we would do a keyhole operation.
So we'd make a couple of small cuts on each side
of the tendon and with that, you can put a camera into your knee,
and various instruments, so we can have a look around
the whole of your knee.
In my case, what I would do is then make this incision a little bit
bigger and through that incision, I can go into the middle
of your knee and start to do the actual reconstruction.
We would take out the middle third of this, which is the same
as the middle third of that.
And that would then come out and we would pass it
through the knee and that would become your new ligament.
How long would it be before I was back playing football?
You could get back as quick as six months.
The average is about six to nine months, anywhere up to 12 months.
Any injury is bad news and tearing your ACL is definitely
one of the most serious in the game.
But thanks to the incredible skills of people like this professor,
even if the worst happens, our favourite players can soon
be back to their best.
I know we talk a lot about skills on Kickabout but what about those
skills from the Professor?
Now it's time to build up to the big FA Cup fixtures of the weekend.
And remember, we want you to get involved.
Maybe you've got a favourite FA Cup memory or you want to give your
verdict on a game you're going to or one you've
watched on the telly.
Whatever it is, we'd love you to tell us
about your FA Cup experiences.
Just upload your photos or videos using the CBBC
Uploader on the website.
There are some cracking cup ties in prospect.
Shortly, all eyes will be on Lincoln City on Saturday.
Can the non-league team possibly pull off another giant-killing
against high-flying Brighton?
It's what cup dreams are made of.
There's a chance for fellow non-league side Sutton
United to cause an upset, but that ain't going to happen,
I'm afraid, as they're playing the best team in the
universe, Leeds United.
Anyway, meanwhile, it's all Premier League
clash at Selhurst Park, where Crystal Palace
take on Manchester City.
One man who will be trying to stop Benteke and co
is superstar defender John Stones.
He visited a Manchester school this week for the PlayStation Schools Cup
and we sent two budding reporters to grill him in the classroom.
Barnsley were your first club.
Who did you score your only goal for them against?
I know these, cos I didn't score many goals!
Who did you make your Everton debut against?
Who did you make your England debut against?
Oh, I think it was Peru.
Who did you replace as a substitute that day?
Who was your only Premier League goal for Everton against?
Flicks onto the front post and in.
Can you remember the final score?
3-1, I think.
Is that right?
Can you remember who scored the other goals?
James McCarthy and...
You're going to have to help me out.
If you weren't a footballer, what would you like to be?
I would have been something in sport.
I don't know exactly what.
If you could time travel, would you rather go back in history
or visit the future?
I think I'd visit the future because it's the unknown, isn't it?
If you had to play another professional
sport, what would it be?
I played rugby as a kid.
I quite liked rugby.
But I think I'd like to play golf.
Have you ever worn a disguise so you don't get recognised?
I haven't, no.
I wear a hat sometimes but never a full disguise.
Who were your heroes in football?
Pele was a great player.
More my generation, when I was growing up,
I used to love watching Beckham, how he kicked a ball.
Oh, it's in!
Who was the best striker you have ever faced as a defender?
Lionel Messi, without a doubt.
I'm a big fan of his and got the chance to
play against him twice.
Some of the stuff that he was doing was frightening.
Of all the games you played, which one has been your favourite?
Beating Barcelona at home.
A great occasion and it was a massive thing for me.
What were you like at school?
Cheeky and loud or quiet and perfect?
Definitely cheeky and loud!
Can you speak any other languages?
Have you picked up some Spanish?
A little bit, yeah.
I would say I can understand it a bit better than I can speak it.
What is Pep like as a manager?
Very dedicated and he's a winner.
He's trying to get that winning mentality across to us
every day in training.
Who is your funniest team-mate for England?
I have to say Joe Hart.
He's always looking for some fun, playing tricks on people.
Who is your funniest team-mate for City?
He's always playing jokes as well.
Who is the best dancer out of your team-mates?
Kelechi Iheanacho thinks he can dance but he's got some weird moods!
Check out these shapes!
Anyway, great stuff.
Thanks, John, and Daniel and Ariane four super interviewing skills.
That's it for this week.
Don't forget, our Ronaldo special is on the CBBC iPlayer but,
for now, enjoy the FA Cup.
