Highlights

Saul Niguez Is More Accurate Than Ronaldo, Tougher Than Vidal And Prettier Than Giroud

Spain’s team competing at the UEFA U-21 Euros is ridiculously talented, as we’ve laid out before

Saúl Ñíguez is making a case to be the best of the lot.

The Atletico Madrid midfielder notched a brilliant hat trick to send Spain past 10-man Italy 3-1 in the semifinals to set up a date with Germany in the final on Friday.

Poor Gianluigi Donnarumma didn’t have a chance. 

Ike Opara Scored A Bicycle Kick No Center Back Has Any Right To Try

Ike Opara can't even believe what he's about to do. His face is all scrunched up in a surprised sort of way, the way one looks at the moment of realization that one is about to do something spectacular.

The Ovideo, Florida native put the finishing touches on a 2-0 victory for Orlando over Pateadores U-17/18, a club from Irvine, California. 

Christian Ramirez Scores Another Beauty, Gold Cup Omission Grows More Baffling

Approaching the halfway point of the 2017 Major League Soccer season, Minnesota United has already answered two questions that lingered around the expansion club throughout preseason: 1.) Is MNUFC the worst MLS side of all-time? No. Far from it. In fact, with five wins (which is what many predicted would be their grand total for the entire season), they’re only three points out of the playoff picture.
