The New York Red Bulls struck a blow for MLS pride in the early Concacaf Champions League match Tuesday when they beat Liga MX's Club Tijuana 3-1, 5-1 on aggregate, to advance to the semifinals.

Everything You Need To Know About The New Campeones Cup Between Liga MX And MLS

While the U.S. president continues to fight for a wall between the countries, Mexico and the U.S. (plus Canada) continue to grow closer through soccer.

Unless You’re Brian McBride’s Child, You Should Not Be Heading The Ball

For Neeson, the answer was yes, although an entire den of wolves proved a few wolves too many.

Seattle Sounders Beat Chivas To Complete MLS First Leg Sweep Of Liga MX In The CONCACAF Champions League

Clint Dempsey (of course it was Clint Dempsey) scored the only goal in a 1-0 Seattle Sounders victory over Chivas Guadalajara in the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League that capped a remarkable two-day stretch that saw the three remaining MLS clubs all beat their Liga MX opponents. That, for those who don't normally follow the CONCACAF Champions League, is noteworthy and even remarkable.

Anyway, here's the goal:

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.
