The list of admirers for PSG’s prodigal young striker Hervin Ongenda grows by the day as English Champions have joined Arsenal, Man United and Chelsea in tracking the 17 year old, according to the Daily Mail. PSG are yet to offer the French U-18 International a senior contract, with his youth contract expiring at the end of the season thus fuelling the transfer rumours.

Ongenda made his PSG debut only a few weeks back, coming on as a substitute in a cup game against Arras. The striker has a prolific record at the various youth levels for both PSG and France, netting bucket loads of goals at every stage in his career so far. The Qatari money flowing into the club has turned their focus on International stars but the Ligue 1 giants are still keen to keep hold of the emerging French talent within their squad.

The 2014 World Cup qualifiers continued to produce fireworks across Europe as the continental giants took the field for the last round of qualifiers for the calendar year. England will still have to turn out later tonight as their clash against Poland in Warsaw was abandoned due to a water-logged pitch caused by heavy rainfall, with the players unable to even conduct their pre-match training routine.

Events at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin more than made up for the dampener at Warsaw as Sweden produced one of the greatest comebacks in recent times as they clawed back from being 4-0 down to draw 4-4 against a shell-shocked Germany. Miroslav Klose’s early brace combined with Per Mertesacker’s goal before half-time gave the home side a commanding 3-0 lead, which was further consolidated by Mesut Ozil’s strike ten minutes into the 2nd half.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had lashed out at French head coach Didier Deschamps after key defensive midfielder Abou Diaby picked up a thigh injury against Chelsea last week following a recent spell on international duty. However, Deschamps has retaliated vehemently asking the Arsenal boss not to interfere in his business with the national side.

Diaby had been used contrary to Wenger's wishes when France played Finland in a 2014 World Cup Qualifier last month, and despite sitting out of the game against Belarus due to a niggle picked up, the urge to select him by both managers has resulted in the injury-prone midfielder earning another spell on the sidelines. Now carrying a thigh injury, the Frenchman is expected to miss out on the national side's friendly encounter with Japan next week and a crucial clash against Spain in the World Cup qualifiers.
