5 of the best Instagram posts of this week…

The summer fun continued this week and as ever, Instagram didn’t stop either.

With the Women’s World Cup, AFCON and a legend retiring, there was plenty of Instagram highlights this week…

Gracias El Niño

Fernando Torres announced his retirement this week and the former Atletico, Liverpool and Chelsea man will be sorely missed.

The world’s best striker when he was at his peak, Torres has won almost everything there is to win both in club and international football. With that in mind, his boyhood club where it all started probably provided the best of all the posts regarding the news.

Flex on them in Oranje

Through to the last sixteen, confidence is clearly very high in the Dutch camp…

‘Recovery done right’

As was the case when the likes of Harry Maguire were seen in the pool last summer in Russia, no words are needed here for England Women’s recovery routine.

Winning start for Egypt…

AFCON kicked-off this week and one of the teams to watch, Egypt, got off to a winning start. Do be sure to follow the AFCON Instagram for your tournament updates – it’s one of the most slept on football tournaments in the world.

Gini’s well-deserved break!

Relaxing in Suriname, one of the photos of the week and posts of the week, both came from Liverpool’s Gini Wijnaldum. It looks more comfortable than the inflatable unicorns pictured earlier!
