FA Cup: Carl Ikeme Called To Duty
Draw for the next stage of the English FA Cup has been held, and London Gunners – Arsenal will host Manchester United in the fourth round.
The draw was conducted by former Wolves and Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme, as well as former Tottenham Hotspur and Republic of Ireland striker Robbie Keane.
It was an interesting duty for Ikeme, who has forcefully retired from football as he is recovering from leukemia.
