Introduction to the blog...

Hi, my name's Toby Wildgoose. I'm a 21 year old who's obsessed by sport, so much so, that I am looking to become a sports journalist/media officer in later life.

I've set up this blog not only so that I can improve and refine my writing skills, but also to provide a platform for potential employers to view my work.

I have already developed a small portfolio of my work, with my experience in the industry including: written match reports for junior football teams, published work at numerous EFL clubs in a variety of formats, and work experience placements at Chesterfield FC and Rotherham United Community Sports Trust - to see my full portfolio click here:

I hope to post as often as possible on this blog about anything that is sport related. Please find the time to read any of my posts.

Any comments or suggestions on how I can improve the blog would be greatly appreciated, and I would also be happy to receive any other suggestions for work experience. Please comment on here, email me (, or even tweet me (@TobyWildgoose). Cheers!

Club World Cup: Monterrey 1 - 3 Chelsea

Chelsea progressed to the Final of the Club World Cup after they defeated Monterrey at the International Stadium, Yokohama. They will now face Brazilian side Corinthians in the final on Sunday. Corinthians defeated Al Ahly of Egypt 1-0 in the other semi-final.

Chelsea took the lead in the 17th minute, when Juan Mata fired home into the bottom left corner of the net. This came after some fantastic build up play from Ashley Cole and Oscar. Mata's goal was Chelsea's first in the Club World Cup however, it would prove not be their only goal of the game.

The lead was doubled almost immediately in the second half. Straight from the kick-off, Chelsea played the ball forward before Eden Hazard played a decisive pass across the box and a huge deflection off a Fernando  Torres shot, meant the ball ended up in the back of the net.

Then, only a minute later, Chelsea all but ended the game. A brilliant ball from Fernando Torres was controlled by Juan Mata on the edge of the box. As he attempted to play the ball back to Torres, a cruel deflection off Chavez meant that, courtesy of an own goal, Monterrey were now 3-1 down.

Monterrey did pull back a goal in the 91st minute, when De Nigris was rewarded for some hard work as he slotted past Petr Cech into the Chelsea net. However, this proved only to be a consolation. Monterrey will now face Al Ahly in the third place play-off.

Final Score: Monterrey 1-3 Chelsea
