Man City, obviously. Boom!
I'm out of this.
Good morning, Kickabouters!
Have we got a treat of a show
lined up for you today.
I'm talking top tips from one
of the world's finest
an exclusive with CBBC's biggest
footy drama and goals galore
chosen by you lot at home.
Let's kick things off, eh?
Here's what's coming up.
F2 freestyler Billy Wingrove tells
you how to handle pressure
on the footy pitch and shows off
some super skills.
We find out which goals YOU voted
to see on this week's show.
And after hundreds of entries,
we go behind the scenes
with the final five chosen to star
in the brand-new series
of Jamie Johnson.
Oh, I cannot wait for that!
Talk about an unbelievable
Do not miss that later in the show.
Let's start, though,
with the biggest footy
stories from this week.
There was drama in the EFL Cup
is West Ham came from two goals down
to beat London rivals Spurs 3-2.
Wolves took Man City two penalties
but lost out on the final hurdle.
And Arsenal just edged past
Norwich in extra time.
Elsewhere, the Reds beat Swansea,
Chelsea saw off Everton
and Bournemouth, Bristol
and Leicester all made it
through to the quarterfinals.
A hat-trick from Liverpool striker
Rhian Brewster also sent England
into the under-17 World Cup final.
They beat the mighty
Brazil 3-1 to book a place
in the final against Spain,
which takes place
later this afternoon.
Get in, boys!
And Bangkok Sports Club beat
Satri Angthong 20-19,
In an extraordinary penalty
shoot-out and we wouldn't
normally tell you about
were it's not for this!
One of the weirdest penalties
ever likely to see.
Honestly, I've never
seen anything like that.
What a way to win a shoot out.
And a massive well done
to the young England players
too, who made
the World Cup under-17s final.
Good luck from all of
us here at Kickabout.
Penalty shoot-outs and major
tournaments both bring
a mighty amount of pressure
for those taking part.
It's vital players can deal
with those situations on the pitch.
How do footballers keep their cool?
Look no further than this F2
for all the advice you need.
Hi, Kickabout fans.
I'm Billy Wingrove from the F2
and I'm here to talk
to you about pressure.
In our book, F2 Galaxy of Football,
there's a young lad called Jack.
Now, Jack has to deal
with pressure and he has
to save football from football evil.
Now, you're probably thinking,
how can you deal with pressure just
like Cristiano Ronaldo,
Lionel Messi and Jack from the book?
Well, these guys embrace
the pressure and it's
all about having confidence.
The more confident you are,
the less pressure you feel.
In fact, you embrace the pressure
and channel it into a positive.
Just like me now, I'm under pressure
because I've got to hit
the crossbar first time,
knowing it's no cuts, you know what?
I embrace it, I'm
confident, let's go.
Ronaldo, Steven Gerrard.
All these players have played
at the very top level
and the deal with the pressure.
If there is pressure on you,
turn it into a positive.
When you achieve, it
will be even sweeter.
Team-mates look out for each other.
If you look at all the best teams
in the world, they have some
star players of course,
but ultimately, what they do best
is playing the team,
support each other and fish each
other and train each other on.
Without that, you
can't win trophies.
Defender, midfield, striker,
to have passion can win you matches.
Skimmed it but it still counts.
Dig deep and believe in yourself.
Every single professional
player we've filmed with,
they've all had this
confident about them.
They think they're the best,
even if maybe they're not
the best in the world,
inside their mind,
they are the best, so you can never
ever doubt yourself when you step
onto a football pitch.
Always have the confidence
and the belief that
you're going to achieve.
What a strike!
Nice one, Billy.
And from one football
freestyler to another.
Let kick off this week's pictures
with one featuring our very
own John Farnworth.
This is Harry.
As well as being a massive
Farnworth fan, of course,
he's a huge Liverpool supporter too.
And like Noah last week, he also
has his name on the supporters'
staircase at Anfield.
Nice one, Harry.
These siblings are huge Spurs fans.
Here they are at Wembley
last month getting ready
to watch their team take on Swansea.
They were also lucky enough
to meet Jermaine Jenas
while they were there.
Sticking with superstar meetings,
he's Brody with Wayne Rooney,
who he met during a hospital visit
to see his sister.
And look at this!
Amazing birthday card made
by Matthew and his family
for Filbert the Fox
at Leicester City, to celebrate his
25th anniversary of the club.
Finally, Liam goes to every game
at Stamford Bridge and recently met
Chelsea legend and his dad's hero,
And for those of you not
old enough to remember Zola,
he scored goals like this...
What a legend!
Looking ahead to the Premier League
fixtures, Chelsea travel
to Bournemouth whilst The Foxes take
on a managerless Everton
with a new manager of their own,
ex-Southampton boss Claude Puel
will no doubt be hoping for a win
during his first game in charge.
Elsewhere, managerial bezzies,
Klopp and Wagner take each
other on as Huddersfield
travel to Anfield.
The big game, though, has to be
the early kick-off at Old Trafford,
the Spurs play Manchester United.
Tottenham will be looking to record
consecutive league victories
against the Red Devils for the first
time since April 1990.
But it's going to be tough,
as they've lost 20 of their 25
Premier League away trips there.
Get this too - it's Rashford's last
Premier League came as a teenager.
Will he score more
before he turns 20?
More goals now, as it is time to
reveal which you voted to see today.
Last week, we asked you to choose
between Scandinavian superstars
or brilliant Brazilians.
I've got to say that there
was a standout winner with this one.
Let's take a look, shall we?
And the shot into the back
of the net, what a goal!
What a beauty!
David Luiz hits it, it's brilliant!
Oh, what a goal from David Luiz.
Here is Coutinho. What a magnificent
strike from the Brazilian.
Oh, what a goal!
A goal of supreme quality
from the Brazilian Oscar.
Rafinha has made the run.
a bit of skill from Neymar
and the shot is over the reach
of the keeper.
Oh, you can see why they call Brazil
the home of the beautiful
game after that lot.
If you head online again after the
show, there are two options to
choose from, with two huge games
coming up next weekend between
Manchester and London clubs.
We're asking if you'd rather see
goals from United and City
or Arsenal and Chelsea.
Yes, we're clubbing the big rivals
together on this one,
its North v South, folks!
Would you rather see goals like this
or this? The choice is yours. Head
online to the website to cast your
vote. You have until 9am on
Wednesday and we will reveal the
winner on next week's show. You
might remember these five from a
couple of weeks ago, the talented
footballers chosen to star in one of
CBBC's biggest shows. We promised
you an exclusive sneak peek and here
Earlier this year, we teamed
up with Jamie Johnson to bring you
guys the opportunity of a lifetime,
a chance to appear in the show.
Hundreds of you sent in fantastic
footy skills but only five could be
chosen to star in the final series
and this is it. The big day has
finally arrived. The five are about
to start in series three of Jamie
Johnson and we are here for a behind
the scenes look.
It has just been a
fantastic opportunity for us and
Jamie Johnson and for the kids on
kickabout, a big part of the show is
having fun. Anyone coming in for the
first time, it is about expressing
yourself, enjoying yourself, not
feeling the European films. It is

Jamie Johnson, when he brings his
football skills on the show, it is
real, not just fake.
It is quite
intimidating to see all the cameras.
But really exciting and fun.

then I got it. It was amazing!

drama and the skills.
So many people
entered and for me to be one of the
five chosen, it is actually a crazy
feeling, to be honest.
It has been tremendous today and
everybody has been raving about a
free kick that Jamie scored earlier.
To do it here in front of all this
camera crew, that is difficult. The
biggest challenges of the final five
is patience, you get called to do
things is a certain time and
sometimes you might be getting
filmed without realising it. It is a
challenge to be patient. Your chance
may come all of a sudden.
We had to
wake up at 6:30am and have breakfast
quickly and leave.
We get our kit
and get changed and then go out to
where we are filming. You get to
have a bit of free play at the end.
I enjoyed playing against Jamie's
I didn't expect how long it
took. On TV, you don't get to see
that. It feels good. I feel proud of

soon as he got the ball, he was off.
For the chosen five, it
is such a monumental day. Never stop
smiling. I am proud of them. They
have gone on from filming tricks in
their back garden to starring in the
new series of Jamie Johnson. I can't
wait to see it!
I have had a really
great time and it has been a good

A big thank you because I

For me, this is a
amazing couple of days for our final
five. How good they look on the
pitch? Well done again to all of
them. A bunch of superstars! And you
lot at home have impressed us with
your skills too.
First up, here is Dan, wearing his
Knockaert Brighton shirt.
Hope you caught our Brighton
special earlier this month.
And that was certainly a special
from you as well, get in.
Next up, Cohen and Matthew.
Firstly, Matthew nutmegs Cohen.
A bit sneaky!
But then Cohen it his own back
and does exactly the same.
Watch out, Matthew!
Next up Jayden scoring a goal
on Sunday for St Mary's,
his new team and he's already got 15
for them this season, wow!
Here's Reggie in his
West Ham onesie.
Love it. He loved his boots so much
he went to bed in them. Joseph is
emulating his favourite player. I
will never tire of that.
Brilliant stuff, keep
