Minutes from spot in FA Cup last-16, Wrexham concede cruel equalizer in batshit crazy 3-3 draw

Wrexham's magical run in the FA Cup isn't over yet after the fifth-tier side almost stunned a Sheffield United team that's targeting a return to the Premier League before settling for a bonkers 3-3 draw on Sunday, forcing a fourth round replay at Bramall Lane.

With Manchester City and Arsenal playing their fixture Friday, this felt like the weekend's biggest cup match: It was a sellout crowd of over 10,000 at Wrexham's Racecourse Ground, Ryan Reynolds was in attendance and so was the BBC team with Alan Shearer and Gary Lineker.

U.S. Soccer made its debut on HBO Max Tuesday night with the USWNT beating New Zealand in a friendly in Wellington thanks to four second-half goals, including Alex Morgan's 120th international strike off a ridiculous Rose Lavelle backheel. 

The Football Ferns were a little overmatched.

El Tri player in hot water after throwing narco-themed party for son's 12th birthday

Mexican international and Cruz Azul defender Julio César Domínguez ("Cata") has gone viral after several photos of his 12-year-old son came to light. What's the fuss about the images? They show he threw the kid a narco-themed birthday celebration.

People were quick to criticize Domínguez online, calling him out for trying to glorify and praise criminal organizations that are responsible for tens of thousands of deaths around Mexico every year.

Detrás de la sobredosis de sponsors hay un jersey del Necaxa en tributo a Don Ramón

El Necaxa reveló su tercer jersey para la temporada 2022-23 y sorprendió a seguidores y aficionados neutrales con la linda intención de rendir tributo a Don Ramón, el legendario personaje del Chavo del 8 interpretado por el no menos icónico actor Ramón Valdés.

La playera tiene un diseño simple y en el que se estampan una serie de frases clásicas del personaje que alimentan la nostalgia. Sin embargo, el diseño no convence a todos, debido a una serie de factores, pero principalmente por el abusivo número de sponsors que suele manchar las camisetas de la Liga MX.

The best soccer TV shows and movies to stream this month

Have you come down with World Cup fever? The only cure is more of the beautiful game. Thankfully, we've got new soccer shows on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and Disney Plus to watch this month. 

Looking ahead to 2023, we know we'll have a third and final season of Sunderland 'Til I Die, a third season of Ted Lasso, a second season of Welcome to Wrexham and the release of Taika Waititi's Next Goal Wins. I'm also still working on an original film about the life and badass times of André Villas-Boas.

Ted Lasso puts up billboards to support the USMNT

America’s favorite fictional soccer coach is back at it again. Ever the motivator, we definitely should have seen this coming. Following the USMNT’s roster release, people have spotted billboards with heartwarming messages popping up across the country, and AFC Richmond’s mustachioed manager is the one behind it. 

In the hometowns of players and coaches, on a classic yellow background akin to his famous “BELIEVE” sign, Ted Lasso has made his feelings known through the generous and kind words for which he has become so beloved. 

Netflix documentary reveals Messi's emotional pep-talk before winning the Copa America with Argentina

Copa América 2021 was pretty special for Argentina. They lifted their first adult international title since 1993 – beating Brazil in the legendary Maracanã Stadium –, exorcized the ghosts of the two finals lost against Chile in 2015 and 2016 and created a very candid narrative around Lionel Messi heading to the World Cup that starts on Nov. 20. 

Messi, of course, was the main architect of the victory. And not only thanks to his extraterrestrial talent but also his commanding voice inside the dressing room.
