Cristiano Ronaldo has hit back at comments made by Ballon d'Or organizer Pascal Ferré, saying the editor-in-chief of France Football "lied" about his rivalry with Lionel Messi.

Brazil-Argentina Referees Indefinitely Suspended For 'Serious And Manifest Errors’

The referee and the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) who officiated in Tuesday's World Cup qualifier between Brazil and Argentina have been suspended for "serious errors,” the South American soccer governing body CONMEBOL said.

Christian Pulisic’s Trolling Of Memo Ochoa Was All About Commanding Respect

United States' Christian Pulisic was on target in Friday's 2-0 win over Mexico, but it was the message scrawled on his T-shirt that made headlines as the winger responded to a pre-match jibe from their North American arch rivals with one of his own.

Second-half substitute Pulisic headed home a cross within five minutes of coming on, while Weston McKennie scored another as a young U.S. team moved to the top  of the World Cup qualifying CONCACAF standings.

El Hombre En El Espejo Y Cómo México Se Está Convirtiendo En Un Meme Para Estados Unidos

La derrota ante Estados Unidos en las eliminatorias 2022 dejó un intoxicante y amargo sabor de boca entre los aficionados de México. No solo porque es la tercera derrota consecutiva ante el USMNT, sino que también por todas las preguntas de identidad que deja flotando. Desde si es Gerardo Martino el hombre correcto para liderar al Tri hasta si la famosa distancia entre ambos seleccionados desapareció completamente. De todas, sin embargo, una de las más interesantes -bajo mi perspectiva- tiene que ver con la narrativa de la selección mexicana a la hora de enfrentar a su vecino del norte.
