Sweden’s national women’s team will no longer display their names on the back of their football shirts, but don’t worry the new jerseys will not disappoint.
Earlier this week, BBC Sport reported that five-year-old Bradley Lowery is set to be England's mascot at an upcoming World Cup qualifier against Lithuania on March 26, 2017. He will lead the team out onto the field ahead of their game.
Lowery is a huge fan of the Premier League's Sunderland football club, and he appeared as a mascot for Sunderland in their away game against Everton Saturday.
Prior to Sunday’s match against Serbia, much of the coverage centered on the idea of dual-national American players. It’s not a new concept. The United States has been fielding dual nationals since US Soccer was founded.
Following the tragic events of LaMia Flight 2933, which took the lives of 22 Chapecoense players, 23 staff and board members and a total of 71 people, the club have now begun the difficult process of returning to the field with a new squad and manager.
If you have been on the Internet in the last few days you have almost certainly heard about the unverified dossier Buzzfeed published in President-elect Donald Trump's alleged relations with Russia.
What you might not know is the operative in charge of putting the dossier together, British former MI6 agent Christopher Steele, recently helped bring down a corrupt, delusional politician: Sepp Blatter.

Bradley Lowery, A 5-Year-Old With Cancer, Receives 28,000 Christmas Cards After Football Unites Behind His Dream
The inspiring story of Bradley Lowery and his courage in the face of terminal cancer has seen football fans from around the world unite in making his dream come true. The five-year-old was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2013, but the cancer was thought to be treated over the course of two-years of chemotherapy.
Tragically, the cancer returned this past June, and doctors have informed the Lowery's that Bradley likely has only two months to live. On Wednesday night, Bradley was seen walking hand in hand with his hero, Jermain Defoe, as a mascot for his favorite club, Sunderland.
