Back in the 80s, the Norwegian pop group Aha! bleated on about how 'The Sun Always Shines On TV'. How untrue, if your name happens to be Thomas Vermaelen.
A hamstring injury meant he hobbled off after 30 minutes in Belgium's most recent World Cup match, which they went on to win without him.
If that injury is serious, it may scupper a potential move to Manchester United. You've got to have some sympathy for the defender, who was once nicknamed 'The Terminator', who may now decide to run out the last year of his Arsenal contract. If we could ask him about his future, no doubt he would say: 'I'll be back'. But for now, it's 'Hasta la vista, baby' for Belgian and the World Cup.
