Granada CF had a sublime second half of the 2018/2019 La Segunda campaign, coming from 5th place in March to earn promotion back to La Liga by finishing the season in 2nd place.

But the past 7 days have been interesting for a number of reasons. Sergio Ramos became the most-capped Spaniard to play for the national team EVER. Scotland emphatically got themselves back on track by firing 6 past San Marino. And another mouth-wateringly high score was overshadowed in Sofia, as members of the Continue reading
Simple but very clean and well executed; the leading lads from the club of Sweden’s most southerly major city treat us with this design.
