Gylfi Sigurdsson Hits 50-Yard Screamer To Put Everton Into The Europa League

Everton held a narrow 2-0 advantage heading into their second leg Europa League qualifying playoff against Hajduk Split in Croatia.

5 Wayne Rooney Moments That Made You Cry “God For Harry, England, And Saint George!”

Wayne Rooney announced his retirement from international football on Wednesday, bringing a close to a tumultuous 14-year England career.

Having Always Battled Injuries And Baldness, Age Is Just A Number For Arjen Robben

At 33 years of age, Bayern Munich must surely be contemplating how they’ll ever manage to replace Arjen Robben on the right wing. Robben gives the impression of having been around this game forever, and with good reason. The 2017-18 campaign will mark his 18th as a professional.

Chucky Lozano’s European Career Is Off To A Blistering Start

Mexican international Hirving “Chucky” Lozano is off to a blistering start in his European adventure with PSV Eindhoven in the Dutch Eredivisie.
