Ronaldo versus Manchester City's new Brazilian folk hero Robinho is the sort of exotic and mouthwatering clash the modern Premier League thrives upon. It is why the 150th Manchester derby, which started out life as a local tribal conflict, will be screened live in 211 countries with a TV audience measured in billions. They will be glued to their screens in Abu Dhabi, whose takeover of City earlier this season changed the Premier League landscape forever, and Florida, home of United owners the Glazer family. And 20 countries will be represented in the two playing squads, from Brazil to Zimbabwe, Serbia to South Korea. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-1090521/The-world-watching-Manchester-derby.html
