As magnificent as it may be, your GAA WhatsApp group may have to take a backseat. Suaveness' Luca Toni ended his career last night against Juventus in typically slick style: dinking a panenka over the goalkeeper:
The best part of Toni's farewell came afterwards, as he revealed that Italy's 2006 World Cup winning squad have a WhatsApp group that they still use to this day:
FANTASTIC! Luca Toni confessing that the 23 World Cup champions with Italy 2006 have a Whatsapp chat only of themselves

Magnificent. That is a WhatsApp group we are desperate to have a look at, as it may just be the coolest group in football. Consider some of the people in it:
The lack of Antonio Cassano notwithstanding, that is an outstanding gang of lads. A fantastic mix of men who have classy tastes along with the fact that most are almost certainly a great pint. Including Materazzi, whose level of needle would keep things interesting. Here is what we imagine some of the members bringing:
An appreciation of fine wine.
How to remain loved, regardless of how long your relationship drags on for.
How to get in a scrap in the chipper.
How to end a scrap in the chipper.
How to become the star of a techno classic.
It may not be as good as the Italian group, but we humbly suggest you join the Balls.ie WhatsApp group for the Euros. To join, all you have to do is message 'Balls Euros' to 083 366 6677.
We promise we won't subject you to any Materazzi-level-shithousery.
