¡Cristiano, Hermano, Ya Eres Mexicano! ¿Qué Hacía El Hijo De CR7 Con El Jersey Del Tri?

Decir que el hijo de Cristiano Ronaldo es un ávido fan de la Selección Mexicana seguro que sería una distorsión de la realidad. Sin embargo, la aparición del niño con un jersey del Tri en la serie “Soy Cristina”, al menos dejó la pregunta dando botes.

La escena es parte del tercer capítulo de la producción que sigue la vida de Georgina Rodríguez, actual pareja de CR7, y en ella Cristiano Jr. luce la linda playera de color negro que México usó durante la Copa Oro 2019, cuando el equipo aún era capaz de ganarle a Estados Unidos.

With No TV Broadcast Available In English, We Explain How To Watch USA-Canada World Cup Qualifier

The USMNT has never faced such a daunting trip north of the border. For the first time since 1997, the U.S. men’s national team travels to face Canada in a World Cup qualifier. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch USMNT vs Canada World Cup qualifier on Sunday, Jan. 30. 

The U.S. and Canada sit atop the Concacaf qualifying table through nine matches, with five games to go. Both are getting close to qualifying but can’t afford to slip up now, especially with Costa Rica potentially surging up the table.

How Popular Is Soccer In Canada? A Lot More Than You Might Think

Most people would think of ice hockey as the most popular sport in Canada, and in a sense, you wouldn't be wrong. Hockey is among the most common Canadian stereotypes, along with maple syrup, Tim Hortons and those great Candian accents (oh yah?).

At the professional sports level, this assumption holds true as well. Canada has seven teams in the NHL versus a combined five teams in the NFL, NBA, MLB and MLS.

Neymar's Netflix Series Is Fascinating In Ways That Neymar Probably Didn't Intend

Warning: Spoilers Ahead (Brazil doesn't win the 2014 World Cup) 

"He's in constant chaos, you know? He often creates it," says Dani Alves with a laugh during the opening of Neymar's new Netflix documentary. "He seems to enjoy that perfect chaos."

And with that we not only have the basis of the title — Neymar: The Perfect Chaos — but a good synopsis of the polarizing footballer who delights in the roles of entertainer, savior, clown, antihero and villain without ever really knowing, or caring, which mask he's going to don on any given day.

Siempre es refrescante ver elementos de la cultura de una ciudad o un país en el diseño de una camiseta de fútbol. Y en ese contexto, lo que el FC Juárez ha hecho con su tercer jersey es simplemente sublime.

Enough Of This USMNT Cold Weather Talk; Cristiano Ronaldo Is Half Naked In The Sun

There’s been a lot of talk — A LOT — about how the USMNT is going to play three World Cup qualifiers in frigid temperatures this international break. Almost every post the @USMNT Twitter account has made this week has highlighted the fact it gets kinda cold in the northern parts of the U.S. in the winter.

What If The USMNT Isn't Actually Embracing The Cold And This Was All A Terrible Idea?

It is, we're learning, a question that can be framed in countless ways — "Will it be an advantage? But will it really be an advantage? How will you prepare? How will you mentally prepare? Will you put hot chicken broth in your water bottle so it doesn't freeze?" — but really only ever has one definitive plan of action: Deal with it.

The last non-friendly game played in the country was a World Cup qualifier in 2011. The capital, Baghdad, hadn’t hosted Iraq’s national team for nine years until Friday. The cities of Basra, Karrbalaa and Erbil were the only three hosting games.
