U.S. U-20s Defeat Mexico In Pivotal Match For The 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup

The United States U-20 team defeated a Mexican U-20 side that hadn’t lost a match since 2009 on Monday in the classification stage of the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship. 

The loss for Mexico means that they’ll need a result against El Salvador on March 1 to qualify for the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup in South Korea. If Mexico were to lose or draw that match, the US would clinch their spot before even playing their final classification match against El Salvador on March 3.

It’s Clear Who Juventus Need To Buy To Clinch Next Year’s Serie A Title In The Summer

The offseason purchases of Mirlalem Pjanic from Roma (€32 million) and Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli (€75.3 million) haven’t debilitated the selling clubs, but they have had the desired effect for Juventus. Higuain has scored 19 goals, tied with Edin Dzeko for the most in the league, and no Juventus player has more assists than Pjanic.

Even more importantly, Napoli, the team that ran them closest last season, will come short of last season’s total of 82 points while Juventus look poised to surpass their own total of 91. There’s no surer gauge of the impact of that transfer.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Conquers Wembley To Gift Manchester United The EFL Cup

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s quest to win trophies for Manchester United is being realized with stunning proficiency. After scoring late for Man United in their FA Community Shield victory over Leicester City to mark his Red Devil Wembley debut, Zlatan has continued his act by scoring twice, including an 87th minute winner, to lift United over Southampton in the EFL Cup final, 3-2.

Kellyn Acosta And FC Dallas Are The Great Hope Of MLS And America

We all know the legitimate questions that greet every disappointing showing from the USMNT: why does the US struggle so mightily when it comes to developing players from a young age? Why can’t we develop a star player? Why isn’t the American system doing a better job at finding Hispanic talent?

The extremely complex process of youth soccer development in America is hampered by the pay-to-play system, the daunting task of casting a net over millions of U-6 to U-18 players and the lack of qualified coaches to ensure their development.

Hulk Is Still Doing What He Does Best In Asia: Violence

Here’s a quick update for you: Hulk, the €55.8 million man, is still ripping shots in Asia for Shanghai SIPG. This latest goal came against FC Seoul in the Asian Champions League. 

Hulk is very much like his superhero namesake in that he’s very strong and really only exists in edited movie clips following his move to Zenit Saint Petersburg in 2012. 

In my mind, he does absolutely nothing other than pulverize the net from 25-30 yards out. Until next time, Mr. Hulk.
