After 45 Minutes Of Agony, Gregg Berhalter And The U.S. Earned Redemption In Honduras

The USMNT played one of its worst opening 45 minutes in the modern era on Wednesday night in Honduras, and then followed that up with one of the greatest second halfs we've ever seen. Both were largely down to the choices of Gregg Berhalter, and while we should ultimately value and treasure the second 45, we shouldn't immediately forget about the first half.

El Plan De Los Seleccionados Argentinos Para Evadir El Bloqueo De La Premier League Y Jugar Ante Brasil

Brasil y Argentina vuelven a verse las caras después de la final de la Copa América 2021, que significó el primer título internacional de la Albiceleste desde 1993. Esta vez, la excusa son las Eliminatorias a Catar 2022 y el duelo ocurre en un contexto marcado por la negativa de la Premier League de facilitar futbolistas a distintas selecciones, escudándose en una lista roja del gobierno británico ante la Covid-19, la cual discrimina abiertamente a naciones latinas, africanas y asiáticas.

Sigilosa Trampa De Alexis Vega Hace Al Necaxa Fallar Un Penal

Víctor Vucetich obtuvo una vida extra al mando de Chivas, el último sábado, luego de que el Rebaño Sagrado consiguiera una trabajada victoria por 2-1 ante el Necaxa.

Brexit Ball Is Alive And Well With Cardiff City And It's Immaculate Scoring Record

Barça Boss: Opponents Are No Longer “Scared” Of Team Without Lionel Messi

BILBAO - Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has admitted opposition sides are being bolder against his side now that they can no longer count on Lionel Messi, after the Catalans were held 1-1 away to Athletic Bilbao in LaLiga on Saturday.

A thumping late strike from Memphis Depay cancelled out Iñigo Martínez's header to earn Barça a point but Koeman admitted his team were still keenly feeling the absence of their all-time top scorer and former captain, two weeks after he left Barça for Paris St Germain following 21 years at the club.

Haaland or Lukaku? Chelsea Targets Top Strikers

Speculation and excitement grow surrounding Champions League victors Chelsea in the quest to sign a new star striker. Even though the club spent around a whopping $150 million last year to bring in forwards Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, they are still shopping for a special striker before the 2021/22 season. While Havertz was battling Covid issues and Werner couldn’t win over the fans last season, the Blues will look to add a lethal striker to the club. 

Why Olympic Men’s Soccer Has An Age Limit

The reason you won’t see some of the best men's soccer players at the Olympics is sort of peculiar. In order to preserve the status of the World Cup as the greatest international event for men’s soccer, an Olympic soccer age limit was instituted for the men's tournament.

The men's Olympic soccer tournament only features players under 23 years old, with three exceptions for each country.
