Jermain Defoe grabbed a hat-trick in Tottenham's 6-0 Barclays Asia Trophy win over South China in Hong Kong.

There has been much speculation about Defoe's future over the summer, but he looked sharp in yesterday's match as he grabbed an assist and three well-taken goals. Andros Townsend & Clint Dempsey also bagged a goal each in a comfortable win on a horrendous pitch.

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has been diagnosed with malaria.

Not the ideal way to kick off pre-season training. Adebayor was admitted to hospital on Saturday with what Spurs describe as a "mild bout" of malaria and will be unable to return to training for at least a week. He will stay in England to recover while the club tour North America.

Germany have won the 2014 FIFA World Cup with a late extra time goal from Mario Gotze.

The final scored was 1-0 in favor of Germany. Germany and Argentina both played well in the final, but the Germans proved to the better team. Chelsea's Andre Schurrle came on in the 30th minute to replace the injured Christoph Kramer and had a phenomenal match. Schurrle provided pace down the left hand side and the Argentine defense had trouble containing him. The move also allowed Mesut Ozil to play in his favorite position in the middle of the pitch. At the end, it was Schurrle who plays a magnificent ball to Mario Gotze, who chested the ball down and scored with a nice volley. The Germans were undoubtedly the best team in the tournament and fully deserve the victory.

A questionable penalty awarded to The Netherlands in the early going was converted by Robin van Persie and the Dutch would not look back as they finish World Cup 2014 in 3rd place with a 0-3 win over Brazil.

Arjen Robben's blazing speed was once again the fulcrum that created trouble for opponents. Thiago Silva brought him down in what replays show was just outside the box. It was a clear goal scoring chance but the referee pointed to the spot and issued Silva just a yellow card, getting the call all wrong. RVP converted the chance as he usually does and less than 15 minutes later, a poor clearance by David Luiz landed in the path of Daley Blind who blasted it home. The final goal of Louis van Gaal's career as manager of the Dutch national team came in the closing minutes and was scored by Georginio Wjnaldum.

Brazil could not recover from the blowout loss to Germany in the semi-finals as they were defeated by The Netherlands 0-3, ending their World Cup run in embarrassing fashion.

Part of the outcome today belongs to a few blown calls by the referee, but in the end, Brazil were beaten fairly by a Dutch side that showed their dominance on both sides of the ball. Oscar put in a decent shift and the hosts were not without their chances, but the key pass to give an attacker a clear shot on target was not to be had. Meanwhile, the defense showed a lack of cohesion that was evident in their semi-final drubbing. They finish the tournament by being outscored 10-1 and their streak of avoiding back-to-back losses at home of any variety, a record older than the actual Girl From Ipanema, comes to a bitter end.

Southampton have completed the signing of Italian striker Graziano Pelle from Feyenoord.

Pelle has established himself as a prolific scorer in Holland, scoring 55 goals in 65 games under current Southampton manager Ronald Koeman in the Eredivisie. Koeman has decided to bring his star man along for the Premier League ride and Pelle will have every opportunity to prove his worth. Southampton have no clear strikers and forward Jay Rodriguez is injured for the beginning of the season. Pelle can be a good fantasy choice for those looking outside of the ordinary, especially since he'll likely be available for a reduced price.

West Ham are reportedly interested in taking Chelsea winger Christian Atsu on loan as a boost to their attack.

With Joe Cole gone and West Ham struggling for goals last season, the Hammers have been making big improvements to their attack this summer and Atsu would be the icing on the cake. The young winger had a great World Cup and has been hyped up for the past few years as the future of Ghana. Chelsea have enough attacking midfielders on their books so they can afford to loan out Atsu if they think he'll benefit from the constant first team action. Jose Mourinho wants to use Atsu in pre-season matches before he decides whether to loan him out. Atsu's fantasy appeal would be exponentially higher at West Ham than at Chelsea due to playing time.

The inevitable has come to pass. Liverpool have officially announced the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona.

With Suarez out the door there is a massive gap in Liverpool's exceptional attack from last season. There is a rumor circulating that they will attempt to fill that gap with Karim Benzema. Not exactly a like for like change but certainly not a bad consolation prize if it happens.

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has signed a new five-year contract with the club.

Nasri had initially failed to shine at the Etihad and had a difficult second season under Roberto Mancini, but things improved in a big way during Manuel Pellegrini's first campaign in charge. The midfielder featured in 34 games, scoring 7 goals, and was a key member of the squad that sealed City their second Premier League title. The contract extension proves how settled the 27-year-old is feeling at the club and we can expect another big season from him as he looks to prove the French national bosses were wrong to exclude him from their World Cup squad.

Sky Sports are reporting that Marouane Chamakh will sign a new two-year deal with Crystal Palace.

Chamakh didn't score many goals for Palace last season, but his work rate under Tony Pulis was vital for the tactical system to work, and the club have been keen to extend the striker's contract before it ends on 31 July. The Moroccan has been linked with QPR and French side Bordeaux during the summer, but Sky Sports appear confident a deal with the Eagles has already been done and is due to be announced within the next 24 hours.

Jan Vertonghen's agent has revealed the defender could quit Tottenham this summer.

Barcelona are being linked to the 27-year-old defender, who impressed for Belgium during the run to the World Cup quarter finals. Vertonghen is one of Tottenham's most important players and his loss would be massive blow for new boss Mauricio Pochettino, but his body language towards the end of last season suggested he is becoming increasingly frustrated at White Hart Lane. This has been backed up by his agent, Mustapha Nakhli, who has refused to commit the player’s future to the club, citing the lack of Champions League football as a big problem.

As expected, Arsenal unveiled both their new Puma kits and highly anticipated new signing Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates today.

Let us count the ways that this improves the situation at the Emirates. First, he's a great player and a confirmation that Mesut Ozil wasn't a one-off top tier signing for Arsenal. Secondly, he fills multiple needs in his ability to play as a central forward instead of Olivier Giroud (offering a different set of issues for a defense) or as a compliment to Giroud in place of either Lukas Podolski (who hasn't been as effective as hoped) or Theo Walcott (who is frequently injured). Beyond his direct impact, Sanchez won't be going to Liverpool which hurts a rival. Finally, a bunch of money will be going to Barcelona that will, presumably, go to funding the purchase of Luis Suarez which further hurts one of Arsenal's rivals. Could it get any better for the Gunners? (OK, maybe if Mathieu Debuchy and Sami Khedira join Sanchez it gets better)
