Pulisic Matches Record That Messi Held For Last Decade; Chelsea Advances To Semis

Porto scored the goal of the competition during Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League quarterfinal second leg. If you’re looking for the other Chelsea vs. Porto highlights, I’m afraid to tell you that there isn’t much to see. 

The Blues advanced to their first Champions League semifinal in seven years despite Porto winning 1-0 on the night. Chelsea advanced 2-1 on aggregate. 

To provide a taste of how riveting the affair was, here’s a highlight of the first shot on target … in the 64th minute.

Former Champions League Winner Djibril Cissé Rebuffs Retirement To Join NPSL Club

Somewhere in an alternate universe, Lionel Messi is the best player MLS has ever seen, Luis Suárez and Edinson Cavani are both pushing for their third MLS Cup and the United States is the premier destination for global footballing talent.

West Brom's Revival Is A Memo To The EPL — And Pompous Writers — That It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over

Raise your hand if you predicted that West Bromwich Albion would defeat Chelsea 5-2 at Stamford Bridge and then a week later overpower Southampton 3-0. Anybody? I would have been surprised just to hear that West Brom scored multiple goals in a match.

‘The Nude Man Of Granada’ Shows His Cojones To Manchester United

It’s always somewhat perplexing as to how streakers gain access to the field during professional sporting events. 

But doing it when football matches are being played behind closed doors and with the security that entails? That’s outrageous. And doing it in an empty stadium when it’s the most important match in the home side’s 89-year history? Well that’s unbelievable. 

And how about meeting all the above criteria but also doing it when your name around town is “The Nude Man of Granada”? That’s a miracle on grass.

Linesman Got Haaland To Autograph Yellow And Red Cards For An Autism Charity

BUCHAREST - Romanian assistant referee Octavian Sovre's decision to ask Borussia Dormund striker Erling Haaland to autograph his yellow and red cards raised some eyebrows but the charity that is set to benefit from a cash boost is not complaining.

Zlibut's own 21-year-old daughter is autistic and she says the center depends on donations.
