Shaq Moore Is Loving It In Europe, But He Doesn't Think That's The Only Way

In a certain light, Shaq Moore could be looked upon as a blueprint for young Americans looking to develop careers in professional soccer.

Barcelona inched closer to the LaLiga title with a 3-1 win over Leganes at the Camp Nou thanks to a Lionel Messi hat trick.

The Blaugrana moved 12 points above Atletico Madrid, which plays rival Real Madrid on Sunday. 

Poor Leganes tried everything to slow Messi down, but, as is often the case, it was just Messi’s day.
