Next week on

Who will be The Best? That question will be a hot topic of debate at this week, with former Germany international Steffi Jones, veteran Italian coach Giovanni Trapattoni, USA star Carli Lloyd, Australia international Caitlin Foord and Sweden coach Pia Sundhage all giving their opinions on the candidates in The Best Football Awards’ various categories.

We have also been speaking to Guy Lacombe, Zinedine Zidane’s first coach at Cannes, and will be publishing our exclusive interview with him on Thursday. The French tactician discusses the breakthrough years of the former Bleus playmaker and current Real Madrid coach, who is in the running for The Best FIFA Men’s Coach of 2016.

The best clubs on the planet are in Japan for the FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2016. We are on the ground there, bringing the tournament directly to you with a series of exclusive interviews, match previews, round-ups, photos, videos and much more besides that. Real Madrid, who make their tournament debut in the semi-finals on Thursday, have their sights set on ending the year on the highest of highs, though Atletico Nacional and the other contenders are determined not to let the European champions have things all their own way.

It goes without saying that we will also have all our regular features for you, as well as all the latest news on the FIFA World Cup™, all our other tournaments and the women’s game. Have a fantastic week’s football on
