We’re just a couple months away from the worldwide release of FIFA 18, and the demo of the game will be available for download well before that. After a month of relative quiet from EA Sports, the company behind the wildly successful soccer simulation is starting to build the hype by releasing actual gameplay videos of the highly anticipated release.
Even though you are not alowed to use your hands in soccer, some fans of the beautiful game have become particularly adept at throwing things.
I am referring, of course, to the fan in Argentina who took down a drone with just a roll of toilet paper.

Is UEFA blaming the victim?
Celtic seem to think so — at least with regards to the governing body’s response to crowd trouble during and after Celtic’s Champions League qualifier against Linfield FC in Belfast last week.
Media reports describe Hoops officials as “stunned and astonished” after UEFA leveled charges of “improper conduct” against the club and “provocation” against striker Leigh Griffiths following the heated first leg of the tie.
If you are a fan of U.S. soccer or a frequenter of social media in general than there’s a good chance that Cassius Dwyer, the son of Sydney Leroux and Dom Dwyer, is one of your favorite little humans.
Though he’s only 10 months old, young Cassius has already shown he has quite personality. We feeling he's had some strong opinions while watching the U.S. men in the Gold Cup recently. After all, there’s nothing more pure than a baby’s reaction.
Toronto FC furthered its record as the most successful club in the history of the 10-year Canadian Championship by winning the competition for a sixth time and confirming their place in the 2018 CONCACAF Champions League. The win was achieved in dramatic fashion with the inspirational Sebastian Giovinco scoring the match-winner in the 95th minute.
An announced crowd of 26,539 was on hand for the second leg at Toronto’s BMO Field with the final finely poised after a 1-1 draw in the first leg at Montreal’s Stade Saputo.
Minnesota United play-by-play commentator Callum Williams has revealed how he prepares for match day by showing us his method at the office. Williams shows off an incredible lexicon with regards to the playing of a pass, and I'm going to be shouting "It's Quinn Hil-LER!" all week.
This commercial is right up there with the best of them from "This is SportsCenter", well done you Loons.
The USMNT ventured to Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Denver, Colorado for their fifth match in the hexagonal round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying.
The American Outlaws were out in full force supporting the red,white and blue, and we luckily were on site to capture some of the best moments of the match. From smooching a significant other after a Christian Pulisic goal to a fan not wanting to give the steward the ball back, we saw it all.
Besiktas celebrated back-to-back Turkish Super Lig titles (the first time they’d managed the feat since a three-peat between 1989 and 1992) with the customary victory parade, but the club’s unique geography allowed for some truly spectacular sights as they opted for a less traditional open-top boat.
Football's a game of tribes, passions and loyalties that frequently boils over. Here's a collection of some truly remarkable images featuring flashpoints between ultras and police from both outside and inside stadiums around the world.
