How The Women's World Cup Works: A Guide For Everyone

In many ways, the Women’s World Cup is a lot like its male counterpart. In many ways, it isn’t. So with the tournament set to arrive this summer in France, we thought we’d explain how the Women's World Cup works in 2019.

The men’s World Cup has been around since 1930, but the women’s World Cup didn’t start until 1991. The men’s World Cup has 32 teams, the women’s just 24. The U.S. sucks at the men’s World Cup; the U.S. dominates at the Women’s World Cup.

Países Bajos Y Alemania: Dos Equipos, Dos Estilos, 'Una Crisis'

Países Bajos; una Eurocopa y 3 subcampeonatos mundiales. Alemania; 3 Eurocopas y 4 campeonatos mundiales. Dos naciones que respiran, comen y beben fútbol pero que no consiguen los resultados esperados. Sin duda alguna, ambas selecciones ostentan un palmarés envidiable, pero en el fútbol el presente habla y lo hace con goles, resultados y puntos.

Luxembourg Is Back, Baby! Recapping The Biggest Upsets From International Break

While there were no headlining matchups, the latest cycle of international qualifying across the globe provided us with some unexpected upsets — if you know where to look.

North Macedonia over Germany and Luxembourg beating the Republic of Ireland were tabbed as the biggest surprises of the international break, but there plenty more stunning results from across Europe and beyond.

These were the best of the bunch:

Germany Loses To North Macedonia After Timo Werner Misses A Sitter

DUISBURG, Germany — North Macedonia scored an 85th-minute winner through Eljif Elmas to stun hosts Germany 2-1 in their World Cup Group J qualifier on Wednesday as the Balkan country celebrated their greatest international victory.

Gareth Bale Shows Racism The Elbow, Literally

Rangers' Europa League tie against Slavia Prague made headlines for all the wrong reasons. 

During the second leg, which resulted in a 2-0 win for the Czech side, Slavia player Ondrej Kudela approached Rangers' Glen Kamara and whispered something into his ear, which sparked a flare-up as a visibly angry Kamara and Connor Goldson went after the player. Kamara and his teammates allege that Kudela called the Finland international a "f***** monkey.” 

El Rompecabezas Político Del España Vs Kosovo

Un tuit, como suele ocurrir en esta era, fue suficiente para prenderle fuego al primer partido en la historia entre España y Kosovo que se juega este miércoles 31 de marzo, en Sevilla.

Gareth Southgate, England Get Set To Host Poland

The top two teams in UEFA World Cup Qualifying Group I will face off on Wednesday as Poland travels to Wembley to play Gareth Southgate's England. 

England opened up qualifying with an expectedly lopsided 5-0 victory over San Marino last week in which Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin bagged a brace. Southgate's side next took on Albania and came out victorious thanks to goals from captain Harry Kane and Mason Mount. Southgate has announced that Mount, who missed training ahead of the Poland game, should be fine to take part. 

Ronaldo Reaches 103 International Goals, But It Looks Like No. 104 Might Be Cursed

LUXEMBOURG - Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal of the 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign but then missed a sitter as the visitors came from behind to beat Luxembourg 3-1 on Tuesday.

The hosts went into the match full of confidence after winning 1-0 away to Ireland and took a shock lead against the European champions when Portuguese-born Gerson Rodrigues glanced in a header on the half-hour for his second goal in two games.
