Amid strong interest from clubs in Major League Soccer, it was with a view towards the 2018 World Cup that Andres Guardado decided to join Real Betis and continue pushing himself at the highest level in La Liga. After three starts for the Seville-based club, it’s apparent that the 30-year-old made the right decision. This is obviously his level.
In recent days a (wild) rumor has spread saying Club América’s jewel, 17-year-old Diego Lainez, could be sold for the staggering amount of $35-41.8 million in 2018. TV Azteca reporter Omar Zerón recently tweeted that several European teams are looking to sign the young player in order to develop him and turn the left-footed Mexican into a star.
FIFA has approved Sofia Huerta’s request for a one-time change of national association, switching her allegiance from Mexico to the United States after appearing competitively for El Tri at the U-20 level. Huerta was born and raised in Boise, Idaho, and currently plays for the Chicago Red Stars in the NWSL.
Today will bring one of Liga MX's highlights of the weekend. Miguel Herrera is back at the kennel. "El Piojo" will lead Club América as they take on his former squad: Tijuana's Xolos –named after a breed of Mexican hairless dogs. Will he make it out alive or will the hounds from northern Mexico tear Club América to pieces?
With “El Tri” officially qualified to the World Cup, will we see a full-strength Mexican starting lineup facing Trinidad and Tobago and Honduras in October? Or will Osorio make the kind of wild, unexpected and at times outright illogical lineup changes he has gotten us used to?
With only two more matches to be played, Mexico aim at securing the first place in the qualifiers and don't have much to lose. For the rest of the teams, however, the stakes couldn’t be higher.
The breakout star of Monday Night Football's first late game of 2017 between the Denver Broncos and the Los Angeles Chargers, although Beth Mowins was excellent and Rex Ryan is a better broadcaster than he is a coach, was undoubtedly sideline reporter Sergio Dipp.

We soccer fans often forget there’s more to life than just the beautiful game. So, please note: this weekend the movie "IT," inspired by Stephen King's eponymous novel, is in theaters. Remember Pennywise, that demonic clown that made us wet our pants as children in the nineties? Well, IT is back.
As it turns out, there's something even more terrifying than IT lurking around soccer fields.
Hirving Lozano is making a quick impact with his new team in a new league. On Wednesday the PSV Eindhoven attacker was named Eredivisie Player of the Month, a good end to a week that saw Lozano score the goal that sent Mexico to the World Cup.
Mexico's future is in dynamic wing players. Specifically, Jesus "Tecatito" Corona and Hirving "Chucky" Lozano, of Porto and PSV, respectively. Watch the two combine for the only goal in Mexico's 1-0 win over Panama Friday, the goal that officially sends the Mexico National Team to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
