Zlatan Ibrahimovic is coming to MLS. After previously stating that his aim was to eclipse Napoleon by crossing the Atlantic and conquering the States, the Swedish striker is now en route to Los Angeles and aiming for a spectacular debut on March 31 against LAFC (“El Tráfico”) at an already sold out StubHub Center.
In American football, the infamous Gatorade shower can strike at any moment after a big game. However, in European football, this is far from the norm. After Tottenham Hotspur beat Manchester City in 2010 to qualify for their first ever Champions League, David Bently's antics cost him his career at Spurs.
For the last four days, Argentina’s national team has been training at Manchester City’s Etihad Campus in preparation for tomorrow’s friendly against Italy at the City of Manchester Stadium. Accordingly, resident Citizens Sergio Aguero and Nicolas Otamendi have been showing the likes of Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain, Angel Di Maria and Javier Mascherano around.
The Manchester City social team has been all over it.
Get ready for Friday!
Manchester United have finally joined the rest of the 21st century by announcing their intention to create a women's team. Better late than never!
United have reportedly bid to create a team in the FA Women's Super League second division.
For the last two months, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has reportedly been on the verge of joining Major League Soccer. For the last two months, he has not. However, with less than four months remaining on his Manchester United contract and with Jose Mourinho more than obliging with regards to letting the Swede go, it’s only a matter of time until we see Ibrahimovic in MLS (the Los Angeles Galaxy being the ultimate destination).
Age 21, standing at 6-4 and hailing from Muskego, Wisconsin, you probably think you know the USMNT’s latest salvation at the forward position, Andrija Novakovich. You’ve probably sketched a mental outline of a big, blundering center forward with an affinity for Milwaukee’s Best, but we mustn’t forget that Harry Kane was similarly written off for being a chubby, traveling salesman-looking version of Butt-head.
It never ends, this churning of prodigious soccer talent at Borussia Dortmund. One minute you’re the Magic Johnson of footballers, the next some 17-year-old Londoner is vigorously nutmegging you to no end in every training session. That, apparently, is the situation facing Christian Pulisic with the emergence of younger-than-thou Jadon Sancho at Dortmund.
You been playing Fortnite? That’s pretty original of you to be doing that. I too tried my hand at the ridiculously popular co-op sandbox survival game and got my ass kicked, although it’s the friends we meet along the way that help us appreciate the journey.
I met some good friends who I no longer speak to.
Anyway, there are two soccer pitches inside the Fortnite map (one of the outdoor variety, one of the indoor), and you can even kick a ball around while scoring triggers a little bit of CenturyLink Field-esque pyrotechnics.
In an absurd twist of events with zero foundation in practicality, Floyd Mayweather was recently asked by British tabloid the Sunday Daily Star whether he’d ever consider investing in an English football club, and, given the fact that Mike Ashley publicly put Newcastle United up for sale last year, what about the Tyneside-based team in particular?
