Mexico defeated Honduras 1-0 to advance to the Gold Cup semifinals behind an early goal from Rodolfo Pizarro, and they’ll now play Jamaica in a rematch of the 2015 final at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.
The Boyz are alright.
For all the hype surrounding Canadian youngsters Alphonso Davies (16 years old) and Cyle Larin (22), it was the Reggae Boyz who impressed most Thursday evening in Phoenix. Jamaica edged Canada 2-1 in the Gold Cup quarterfinals to set up a date with Mexico or Honduras in the semifinals on Sunday.
Jamaica has a chance to reach its second straight Gold Cup final and in doing so knock off the team that beat them in the 2015 final, Mexico.
Romelu Lukaku is slated to be the next big thing at Manchester United. The former Everton striker has been one of the most dominant players in the Premier League for the last few seasons, and he finally got his move to a mega club.
At Manchester United, Lukaku will be expected to score bucketfuls of goals, without much support. He has Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata as his pipeline, but Manchester United's midfield really needs work.
Fortunately for United, Lukaku is really, really good:
Chicharito is on his way to West Ham for a medical, and if everything is good and cool there he will become a West Ham player. He will return to the Premier League after two seasons with Bayer Leverkusen. During his first season in Germany, Chicharito lit the world on fire with 26 goals in 40 appearances. During the second season he was good but not great, but he still had some pretty cool goals.
