Neymar carries Brazil into last 16

Brazil and Barcelona ace Neymar has lived up to his billing as the poster boy for this summer's World Cup as his double against Cameroon helped the Selecao on their way to top spot in Group A and a place in the last 16.

Luiz Felipe Scolari's men ran out 4-1 winners over the African side, with Neymar twice putting his side ahead in the first half before they romped to victory late on.

Neymar has now scored four of Brazil's seven goals at this summer's showpiece, topping the tournament's scoring charts, and if the home nation are to claim a sixth World Cup title then they are likely to do so on the back of their star player, who has carried the side into a last-16 clash with Chile.

Will.I.Am?! Mourinho sneaks in to gazump Spurs & AVB

Tottenham looked certain to sign Willian from Anzhi this week, as the Brazilian flew to London for a medical in north London.

But Spurs appear to have been trumped at the last moment, when Chelsea and Jose Mourinho swooped in for the forward, capturing him from right under their rivals' noses.

"He’s an extra target [to Rooney]," Mourinho told reporters when asked about the deal. "We have to do a medical.

"I am happy with my squad but every one of us says we are happy. We always want something more and never close the door."

With Gareth Bale looking increasingly likely to join Real Madrid, Tottenham are once again forced to look for an alternative.

Beckham takes centre-stage amid Deadline Day madness

In a typically entertaining and frantic January transfer window, if not a spending one, there were many sagas and late deals that caught the eye.

Peter Odemwingie tried, but ultimately failed, to take his transfer into his own hands by effectively abandoning West Brom, only to be refused entry to QPR - despite Harry Redknapp showing his desire to flash the cash once again.
Tottenham's chase for a striker was unsuccessful, though north London rivals Arsenal managed to sneak a late signing in the shape of full-back Nacho Monreal, while Anzhi proved their muscle with a deal for Willian which broke the £30 million barrier.

However, there was only ever going to be one winner for the move of the window award when PSG announced that David Beckham was joining them until the end of the season - and is donating the wages from his five-month contract to charity.
