¡Se emocionaron de más! Celebraciones y festejos polémicos en Liga MX

Los goles en el fútbol no serían lo mismo sin los festejos y los festejos no serían lo mismo sin los goles. Van románticamente atados de la mano.

Al jugador que marca le encanta celebrar con su afición, con la banca del equipo, con el compañero que lo asistió y, de vez en cuando, aprovecha para inventarse un festejo único.

El fútbol mexicano, como en todo, no es ajeno a esa creatividad en las celebraciones y jugadores como Paul Aguilar, André-Pierre Gignac o Rogelio Funes Mori han regalado uno que otro momento icónico para sus aficionados con festejos llenos de ingenio.

Ronaldinho vuelve a Querétaro y estará en reapertura del Estadio La Corregidora

El menú de la J12 del Clausura 2023 viene delicioso. Los clásicos Tigres vs. Monterrey y Chivas vs. América serán del deleite de las masas, mientras que el Querétaro vs. FC Juárez seguro que encantará a aquellos con gustos más...ehm... alternativos.

Las leyendas que Pocho Guzmán y Henry Martín sacarían del retiro para el Clásico Nacional

Semana de Clásico Nacional, semana que no se habla de nada más que de América y Chivas.

Los capitanes de ambos equipos, Henry Martín y Víctor Guzmán, fueron los encargados de dar el puntapié inicial a los debates que paralizarán el fútbol mexicano y lo hicieron de una manera poca veces vista, con una conversación en conjunto y en la que fuera de aventarse dardos el uno al otro, charlaron del enfrentamiento como cualquier otro aficionado.

Berhalter cleared by U.S. Soccer investigation, Reynas left with even more embarrassment

An investigation into former U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter's dispute with his wife outside a bar in 1992 concluded that U.S. Soccer was not in the wrong for hiring him as the national team coach, the federation said on Monday.

The investigators' conclusions mean there is now no legal impediment to employing Berhalter, who remains a candidate for the coaching job which is now held by Anthony Hudson on an interim basis.

The Soccer Tournament: Why I love this 7-on-7 gimmick and you should too

The hype is growing around The Soccer Tournament (TST) — brainchild of the folks behind the increasingly popular The Basketball Tournament (TBT) — but I don't think anyone's talking about it nearly enough.

On June 1, 32 teams will descend on WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, NC, for a four-day tournament with the winners taking home $1 million. It's certainly not your traditional soccer tournament with different rules, procedures and a collection of squads comprised of legends, professionals, up-and-coming talents, amateurs, viral street sensations and everyone in-between.

Return of the PUMA King — legendary boots are back and better than ever

One of the most hyped drops of 2023 was undoubtedly the release of the PUMA King Ultimate, the latest edition of the boot preferred by Pelé, Diego Maradona and Johan Cruyff since its inception 55 years ago.

The King has always been synonymous with comfort, control and class, and while much has changed in the boot's lineage, those tenets remain the building blocks of the PUMA King Ultimate.

Ronaldinho scored his last goal for Barcelona 15 years ago and boy was it a beauty

Ronaldinho’s last Barcelona goal was scored against Atlético Madrid on March 1, 2008. At the time of writing, that moment took place 15 years ago. How time flies.

Ronaldinho’s final goal for la Blaugrana is the legacy of that game, however on the day it was a triumphant 4-2 victory for Atlético Madrid.

Ronnie scored the opening goal in the 29th minute with a spectacular bicycle kick. The assist from Xavi wasn’t too shabby either.

Ronaldinho makes appearance in Piqué's Kings League but refuses to run

Coaxed onto the pitch by Gerard Piqué and the fulfillment of his appearance fee, Ronaldinho made a brief cameo in the Kings League on Sunday as the 12th man for Ibai Llanos' Porcinos FC team.

The true king was in the building.

UNOZERO adds gorgeous Turf and Futsal to its boots offering — we've got an exclusive discount

The noise is unrelenting. From the moment we wake until our day's complete, we're exposed to around 4,000 to 10,000 ads that enter our consciousness and demand consideration. The market around the game of soccer is no different, where footwear brands promise innovations that can make you stronger, faster and more powerful than you'd ever imagined — only to declare them obsolete just months later as the newest product is rolled out. We get swept away by technological "advances" and spend hundreds of dollars wrapping our feet in unforgiving synthetic plastic.

The year's best story? Karius out for redemption in EFL Cup final on his Newcastle debut

Sunday's EFL Cup final is a tale of two clubs desperate to herald the beginning of a new era with silverware. For Manchester United, ending a six-year wait for a major trophy would affirm Erik ten Hag's revolution. For Newcastle United, a 68-year drought would be remedied by the wealth of the Saudi PIF and the tinkerings of Eddie Howe.
