Next week on

Just like every Sunday, we whet your appetite with a preview of what you will be able to enjoy on in the coming days.

The week will kick off on an Olympic note with the announcement of the squads that will be vying for medals in the Men's and Women's Olympic Football Tournaments at Rio 2016. New Zealand's Ali Riley and Algeria's Rachid Ait-Atmane are among those dreaming of gold, as they will be opening up about in the next few days.

Also coming your way this week will be further instalments of our running commemoration of the anniversary of the 1966 FIFA World Cup England™. will carry on looking back at the event every day until Saturday 30 July, the date on which the Three Lions roared to global glory in front of their fans 50 years ago.

Will Independiente del Valle or Atletico Nacional be representing South America at the FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2016? The answer will be served up by Wednesday's Copa Libertadores final second leg in Medellin and we will be on hand to bring you build-up and reaction.

Moussa SissokoandThomas Meunier both shone for their countries at UEFA EURO 2016 and they are keen to keep doing so, starting in qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™. Israeli international Eran Zahavi harbours similar World Cup hopes and will be hearing from all three of them. They are not the only ones already gearing up for Russia 2018: preparations are well underway at the various venues. Get the lowdown and delve into the history of the Luzhniki stadium this week.

The Bahamas are also primed to stage a big event: the 2017 edition of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup. We will be bringing you the impressions and expectations of several players from the host-country-to-be, who sat down with during a recent visit to the Home of FIFA.

Of course, you will also find all our regular features – such as the quotes of the week, the best stats and the birthday bulletin – and more from football's steady supply of remarkable stories, including those of Bruce Djite and Alex Iwobiin this instance. Have a great week on!
