The Onion Bag: Maradona's Oscar Moment and the League Cup Final Door

Ryan BaileyFeatured Columnist IVJune 30, 2016

Welcome to the Onion Bag, your primary source for weird and wonderful football news.

It was the 86th annual Academy Awards on Sunday, and a few famous names from world football cropped up on the red carpet and the podium. John Terry even waded in on the world's most retweeted selfie!  

Also on Sunday was the League Cup Final, with Manchester City claiming their first trophy of the season in emphatic fashion. There were superb goals from Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri, but the real star of the show was surely the wooden door that someone smuggled into Wembley. 

We finish the show this week with e-petition news: More than 10,000 football supporters are trying to make Tom Cleverley stay home from the World Cup.
