Weston McKennie Snubbed From UEFA’s Goal Of The Season List By Goals Nowhere Near As Good

I have a bone to pick with you, UEFA. Not only did you block me from embedding your video with all the nominations for Goal of the Season, forcing me to find them on Twitter, but you didn’t include Weston McKennie’s scissor-kick goal at Camp Nou. I need to have a word with the committee.

Messi Reportedly Agrees To 5-Year Barça Deal With Massive Wage Cut

Lionel Messi is set to extend his stay at Barcelona by signing a new five-year deal, with the Argentine talisman set to take a wage cut, La Vanguardia newspaper and ESPN reported on Wednesday.

Messi, Barça's all-time top scorer and appearance maker, technically ended his 21-year association with the club last month and is currently a free agent after his previous contract expired.

Since Joan Laporta took over as Barça president, the club has been trying to reduce their wage bill in order to keep Messi and stay within LaLiga's strict financial control rules.

Ya es oficial. El PSG ha presentado oficialmente a Sergio Ramos como el nuevo bastión de su defensa. El jugador español llega a París después de 16 temporadas junto al Real Madrid.

Dado que su contrato con los merengues finalizaba el 30 de junio, Ramos ha llegado al PSG en calidad de libre, firmando un acuerdo de dos años. Otra manera de decirlo: Ramos se mantendrá en el Parque de los Príncipes hasta junio de 2023.

Well, Well, Well. Look Who Just Showed Up At The Parc Des Princes

Paris Saint-Germain have signed Spain defender Sergio Ramos on a free transfer after he left LaLiga club Real Madrid, the French Ligue 1 side announced on Thursday.

The Away Goals Rule Has Been Removed From All UEFA Club Competitions

European soccer's governing body UEFA said on Thursday it had approved a proposal to remove the away goals rule from all its club competitions involving men's, women's and youth teams, beginning with the qualifying phase of the 2021-22 campaign.

The away goals rule, introduced by UEFA in 1965-66, has been applied when the score of a two-legged tie is level on aggregate after 180 minutes, with the team scoring more goals away from their home venue declared winners.

The Champions League Final Wasn’t The Highest-Rated Soccer Match On TV This Weekend

On Saturday, Christian Pulisic became the first U.S. male to play in the Champions League final and lift the trophy. As expected, the 2021 Champions League Final TV ratings received a huge boost thanks to his inclusion (not to mention Zack Steffen on the opposing bench). But Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Manchester City on CBS wasn’t the highest-rated soccer match on U.S. TV this past weekend.

Was Marta’s 2014 UWCL Final Performance The Best Ever For A Losing Team?

History is written by the victors. When you reminisce about the biggest finals of recent times, you’re likely thinking of players like Megan Rapinoe at the 2019 World Cup, Kylian Mbappé in 2018, Carli Lloyd in 2015 or Mario Götze in 2014.   

But there are those rare instances when an individual’s performance on the losing team — for better (Zinedine Zidane in 2006) or worse (Loris Karius in 2018) — lives just as vividly in the memory. 

¿Debe N'Golo Kanté Ganar El Balón De Oro 2021?

Un discreto y humilde 29 de marzo de 1991 nació en París, Francia, un tal N’Golo Kanté. Hijo de inmigrantes africanos que tuvieron la oportunidad de radicarse en la ciudad de la luz y buscar un futuro mejor.

Como otros tantos colegas futbolistas, la infancia de Kanté fue tan hostil como prometedora. El muchacho fue recolector de basura en París para ayudar a su familia y a la temprana edad de 11 años perdió a su padre. Eso sí, a pesar de los obstáculos que se le presentaron en la vida, se mantenía en la lucha por cumplir su gran sueño: ser jugador de fútbol.

Pep Guardiola’s Tactics Ridiculed After N'Golo Kanté Bosses The Midfield Battle

PORTO, Portugal — It was billed as the night when Pep Guardiola would lead Manchester City to their first Champions League title but it ended with questions again being asked about the Spaniard's decision-making in the biggest games in Europe.

City were expected to beat Chelsea in this year's final but instead they lost 1-0 on Saturday courtesy of a first-half goal by Kai Havertz after Spaniard Guardiola was outfoxed by his German counterpart Thomas Tuchel.

¡Ufff! De Bruyne Sufrió La Fractura De Dos Huesos De La Cara En La Final De La Champions

Además del dolor emocional que significó la derrota en la final de la Champions League, Kevin de Bruyne ahora también debe enfrentar las consecuencias físicas que le dejó el accidental choque que tuvo con el defensor del Chelsea, Antonio Rüdiger: una fractura nasal y otra alrededor de su ojo izquierdo.
