The USA Wins The SheBelieves Cup

England channeled the spirit of Robert Green against the USWNT Wednesday, conceding a very silly own goal on the way to a 1-0 USA victory that gave the Americans the SheBelieves Cup.

Megan Rapinoe's cross/shot was eventually knocked into the England netby goalkeeper Karen Bardsley for the only goal of the night in the 58th minute.

Algarve Cup Adds To The List Of Crap That Only Happens In Women’s Soccer

Adding to the list of shit that would never happen in men’s football, the Algarve Cup decided to not play its final on Wednesday, instead awarding both the Netherlands and Sweden first place in the tournament. About two hours after announcing starting lineups for the final, the Algarve Cup announced the match was canceled due to poor weather conditions.

Why Colombia Must Not Be Allowed To Win The World Cup

For many, especially in South America, the World Cup is everything. Every four years football fans tune in with hopes of seeing their country lift the trophy. For some (Germany, Brazil), this is a legitimate expectation. For others (England, the U.S.), it’s a mere pipe dream. The Colombia World Cup hopes are somewhere in between, but I really hope Los Cafeteros aren’t the last ones standing in Russia come July. 

The Top 10 Goals Of The UEFA Futsal Championship Will Leave You Feeling Savage

In February, the 11th edition of the UEFA Euro Futsal Championship went down in Slovenia, and with nearly five goals per game across 20 matches, some almighty cracks were scored in host city Ljubljana. 

Portugal, led by five-time World Futsal Player of the Year Ricardinho, captured its first-ever title by defeating Spain (the seven-time and reigning champion) 3-2 in the final. 

Mexico And South Korea Will Stress, But That’s Why Sweden Needs Zlatan At The World Cup

Zlatan Ibrahimovic hasn’t played for Manchester United since getting the halftime hook in a 2-2 draw with Burnley back on December 26, and he wasn’t named in the club’s 18-man squad for Monday's win over Crystal Palace, but that doesn’t mean we should stop talking about the Swedish lion. 

United boss Jose Mourinho recently revealed that this’ll almost certainly be Zlatan’s final season in Manchester.

USWNT Defeat Olympic Champions Germany To Kick Off SheBelieves Cup Play

The USWNT, the world's top-ranked side, defeated Germany, second-ranked, 1-0 to begin SheBelieves Cup play Thursday night, Megan Rapinoe scoring the game's lone goal off an assist from Alex Morgan.

The weather outside was weather — cold, wet (a nice wintery mix of rain/snow) and windy. Why the SheBelieves Cup decided to stage two matches in the midwest during the winter is an awfully good question, but the USWNT and Germany played out a high-energy, although somewhat limited, match — the opener for both nations at this round-robin tournament. 

You Can Bring Drugs Into The Russia World Cup Venues

The 2018 World Cup was always going to be a little unhinged. This, after all, is a country in which groups of ultras get together before league games and partake in semi-organized brawls. After the Russians took the spotlight at Euro 2016 in France with some, well let's be polite and call them "antics," folks were right to be worried about fan safety during the World Cup.

Japan Keeper Sums Up 6-2 Loss With 4 Awful Seconds

The Algarve Cup began Wednesday with six matches. The highlight was supposed to be Japan, a finalist in the last two World Cups, against the Netherlands, the reigning European champion. However, the match was hardly competitive, with the Leeuwinnen thoroughly dominating the match. The only notable aspect of the 6-2 rout was four miserable seconds from Japan goalkeeper Sakiko Ikeda.
