  1. What happened on Wednesday?

    The day began with Manchester City and England forward Raheem Sterling edging out Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha 5-4 in a thriller. In an end-to-end encounter, both players scored with themselves and kept exchanging goals before Sterling pulled two goals clear - amidst some Fifa game-play controversy (see post below) - before a late consolation.

    Next up was one of the biggest games in world football as Manchester United fan and musician Tom Grennan faced Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold. Grennan dominated early proceedings but missed key chances and was made to pay as TAA went in leading 1-0 at the break. He turned his advantage into second-half dominance as he pulled five goals clear - including a delightful Sadio Mane chip over David de Gea - before a very late Grennan consolation goal saw the game finish 5-1.

    The third game saw Everton midfielder Andre Gomes play against upcoming Chelsea right-back Reece James. Before the game Gomes claimed his ability was "so-so" but based on his 8-0 demolition of James he is going to be a force to be reckoned with as the tournament progresses. Gomes claimed he hadn't picked up a console remote till about a week ago. Surely he's got to be kidding?

    The final game saw Newcastle winger Christian Atsu play against former Geordie and now-Spurs midfielder Moussa Sissoko. In a tight, cagey affair, more akin to real life than the previous encounters we'd seen today, Atsu scored an 88th minute winner through Jonjo Shelvey to progress to the last eight with a 2-1 victory.

    The remaining last-16 ties will be played on Wednesday with pre-tournament favourite Todd Cantwell of Norwich in action.

  2. 'You can't do that, man' - Zaha annoyed by Sterling's 'disgusting' goal

    Earlier on Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling progressed to the quarter-finals with a tense 5-4 victory over Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.

    However, the Eagles man was less than impressed with one of the goals that Sterling scored.
