Here’s to another week. We saw another jaw-dropping chapter in the legend that is Leo Messi as he nutmegged Barcelona into the quarter-finals along with a cheeky England v England tie to look forward to. Off pitch, our Korean brothers at Over The Pitch, built out a beautiful exhibit to the lineage of the adidas Predator in Seoul. Elsewhere Nike dropped the France World Cup 2018 kits, while Patta collab with Umbro for some 90s inspired jersey’s and Offset is seen pictured with his young son who is crying, probably because he’s rocking a Southhampton shirt. Well cheer up little guy, it’s time for another round of This Weeks Instagram Best 11.
