New Paulo Dybala Transfer to Roma Shocks Juventus Fans

Seven seasons after joining the club, Paulo Dybala has completed his move away from Juventus.

How did this beautiful marriage fall apart and crumble so quickly and so catastrophically?

Better Now? How Juventus Could Line Up After Impending De Ligt Transfer

Nine successive Serie A titles followed by two campaigns where Champions League qualification seemed a shallow silver lining, Juventus’ fall from grace has been clear to see in recent years. This summer has seen several big names depart Turin, and the Bianconeri will be hard-pressed to find adequate replacements in order to once again fight for the Scudetto.

Ruthless Hungary Hands England Worst Home Defeat Since 1928

WOLVERHAMPTON, England - Hungary thrashed a dreadful England 4-0 away on Tuesday to go top of their Nations League group and perpetuate the hosts' winless run in a competition they had hoped would be a morale-boosting warmup for the World Cup.

With only one goal and two points in their first three games of this Nations League campaign, England dominated early possession at the Molineux and could have gone ahead had Jarrod Bowen been sharper with a close-range header.

Marco Asensio And Gavi Turn On The Style As Spain Leapfrogs Portugal In Nations League

MALAGA - Goals from Carlos Soler and Pablo Sarabia earned Spain a 2-0 win over Czech Republic on Sunday, a result that put them on top of UEFA Nations League Group A2.

Last year's finalists dominated the game from the start and opened the scoring when Soler struck from close range in the 24th minute following a brilliant pass by man-of-the-match Marco Asensio.

Losing 7-0 To Spain, Malta Gets Serious And Pulls One Back From The Center Circle

As the great Maximus Decimus Meridius once said, never know when you're conquered. Even when all about you is burning and crumbling to ruin, remain calm and listen to that little voice inside that says, "Hold on! You might still go viral!" 

That's what happened to Malta's U-21 team in Tuesday's UEFA U-21 Euro 2023 qualifier against Spain's collection of twinkle-toed phenoms from La Masia and La Fábrica.

Giant Sinkhole At Austria-Denmark Match Is A Bit Concerning

There's no time like the present to increase your audience by splicing together whatever it is your doing with the global Stranger Things: Season 4 phenomenon, and the national teams of Austria and Denmark tapped into that golden content on Monday during a Nations League match at Ernst Happel Stadion in Vienna.

It began with the flickering of lights — goddamn Vecna up in here — and a power outage that delayed kickoff by 90 minutes. Fans tried to illuminate the pitch with cellphones to get the action started, but after that failed they did the wave.

EPL Beware: Erling Haaland Takes Norway Tally To 9 Goals In Last 6 Games

BELGRADE - Striker Erling Haaland's superb first-half volley gave Norway a surprising 1-0 win away to Serbia as they got their Nations League Group B4 campaign underway on Thursday, but they needed goalkeeping heroics from Ørjan Nyland to secure the win.

The visitors took the lead in the 26th minute as Martin Ødegaard sliced open the defense with a beautiful pass to Marcus Pedersen who crossed for Haaland to deftly volley home from close range with the only shot on target in the first half.

It’s Pride Month; How Is Soccer Celebrating?

It is June 1, a day that across the world rings in a month of Pride celebration, visibility and advocacy for LGBTQ+ rights. These celebrations will surely make their way into the beautiful game. In soccer, pride month traditionally is accompanied by stadium “pride nights,” themed jerseys and fundraisers for equal rights organizations. Above all else, these celebrations are an affirmation that soccer should be inclusive of all. I would argue that such acceptance, at least philosophically, is the very nature of the sport.

Only Two Normal Champions League Seasons Left — UEFA Approves 36-Team, No Group Stage Format For 2024-25

Two Champions League spots will go to associations with the best collective performance by their clubs in the previous season from 2024-25 onwards after UEFA's Executive Committee approved the final format and access list for European club competitions.

UEFA also changed the criteria to qualify for Europe's premier club competition, removing access based on club coefficient, denying teams who did historically well a chance to qualify even if they did not finish in qualifying positions.

The final format was approved in Vienna on Tuesday.
