Iraq Hosts Emotional Game In Baghdad For First Time In 9 Years, Wins With Amazing Bicycle Kick

The past decades of war and terror in Iraq have taken a toll on the beautiful game in the country. FIFA has routinely imposed bans on hosting international games in Iraq over security and safety concerns.

Weston McKennie’s Teammates Can’t Keep Their Hands Off His Hair After Latest Goal

Heading into what could be one of the biggest years of his career, Weston McKennie is playing superbly right now. The Juventus midfielder has played every second for the club in 2022, including all 120 minutes in the Supercoppa Italia on Wednesday at the San Siro.

Sierra Leone Keeper’s Man-Of-The-Match Display Brings Tears, Message From President

It’s frustrating when you see countless European coaches, fans and media outlets focusing more on what the Africa Cup of Nations costs than the joy it brings. Yes, some European clubs are without some top players for a little while, but no one complains participation in the Euros or Copa América.

Big Man Adebayo Akinfenwa Crushes His Teammates After Incredible 90+8' Equalizer

Wycombe Wanderers and Sunderland played out a batshit crazy League One match Saturday that saw the two clubs exchange four goals in the opening 39 minutes before each scored in second-half stoppage time to cap a wild 3-3 draw.

Prolific Striker Scores Last Goal From His Coffin

Week after week, Jaime Escandar proved his talents as a striker in Club Aparición, a small amateur squad in Paine, a town a few miles south of Santiago, Chile. In the words of his teammates, he was a natural. He could score goals with his right foot, with his left foot, with his head. He just scored goals for every taste. 

But last weekend, his goal was a bit different.
