Was This Really The Greatest World Cup Goal Or Are Mexico Fans Really Good At Voting?

We are going to go on record here and say that democracy is, generally, a good thing. Voting for leaders, holding them accountable with a free press and repeating the process is probably the most effective way to run a government.

19-Year-Old Mal Pugh Opens The Scoring Against Mexico, Is Playing Out Of Her Mind

Captain Alex Morgan took possession in Mexico’s attacking third and played Megan Rapinoe into the box. Rapinoe used the outside of her right boot to flick the ball beyond the onrushing keeper and towards the streaking Pugh.

The Highlands Ranch native did the rest.

There are times when football meets art. Now you may be thinking we are talking about Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but you are wrong. Arguably the most beautiful play you’ll see all year took place in Portugal’s Primeira Liga as Benfica hosted Vitoria SC on Saturday.

The author of the formidable work of art was none less than Mexican international Raúl Jiménez, a former Club América star. Benfica were leading 1-0 into the 76th minute, and then lightning struck.
