Drogba vs Messi – Turkish Airlines #EpicFood

Ivorian footballer Didier Drogba travels around the world to hunt for epic foods, but “unhappy” to find that Argentinian football star Lionel Messi is always ahead of his gourmet adventure. A humorous advertisement by Turkish Airlines.

Destinations include Turkey, Nepal, Japan, Siberia and Sahara. The last part of the video shows the company’s acclaimed in-flight meals while seemingly on the way to The Americas (which oddly don’t have any featured food in the commercial).

Thierry Henry – Top 10 Premier League Goals

Arsenal FC have released a video of their top ten English Premier League goals from club legend Thierry Henry in the wake of his retirement as a professional player.

Henry played for Monaco, Juventus, Barcelona, New York Red Bulls and spent eight years at Arsenal where he is the club’s all-time record goalscorer. He’s also record goalscorer for France and played a part in their 1998 World Cup triumph.

One of my favourite football players, he’s not only good but oozed elegant on the field, and he scored some really amazing and memorable goals.
