Why Joe Hart's Torino Move Is Good For England

I have a theory as to one reason (of many) the England National Team tends to underperform in major tournaments: the players all play in the same league. Every England international plays in the Premier League. One might argue this breeds familiarity and is therefore good for the national team, but I think it leads to a lack of stylistic variety in the team and makes the payer pool stagnant. It's basically like inbreeding, is what I'm saying.

Once Again, The USMNT Roster Isn’t Full Strength; Here’s The Best Possible Lineup Vs. El Salvador

The USMNT will begin its next World Cup qualifying campaign window with a home game against El Salvador in Columbus, Ohio, at 7 p.m. ET. The 28-man roster was announced on Jan. 21; now the starting USMNT lineup needs to be decided.

Head coach Gregg Berhalter routinely employs a 4-3-3 formation with his squads and would be expected to do so again against El Salvador. With the players he has chosen, this is the starting lineup expected for Thursday.

John Terry’s Incessant Promotion Of Monkey NFTs Has Landed Him In Trouble And I’m Thrilled

The John Terry NFT drama has overwhelmed my Twitter feed, and I’m close to reaching my breaking point. Apologies NFT bros and gals, but your non-fungible tokens mean nothing to me and I hate them. Chelsea, the Premier League and UEFA are also looking into Terry’s nonsense over copyright concerns.

What Exactly Is Terry Doing?

The Chelsea legend has teamed up with “Ape Kids Club” to promote these ridiculous-looking baby apes NFT’s. 

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. 

I Guessed 80% Of Berhalter’s January WCQ Roster Correct; These Five Players I Missed Need To Impress

USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter released the latest national-team roster that has, as always, caused controversy. Before we get into the roster, let’s see who Berhalter thinks has what it takes to qualify the USMNT for Qatar.

Ridiculous Gregg Berhalter Volley Has Me Thinking He’s The USMNT’s Best Option For Starting Striker

The U.S. men’s national team has a striker problem. Players like Ricardo Pepi, Jordan Pefok, Gyasi Zardes and Daryl Dike have all attempted to fill the No. 9 vacancy on the team with mixed results. The team has been searching for an answer, but little did they know the solution has been one step away from the field this whole time.

Gregg Berhalter needs a go at striker. Don’t believe me? Check out this video from the USMNT’s Arizona training camp and try telling me that Mr. Nike Shirt couldn’t score a goal for this team.

Watching Nigeria's Moses Simon At AFCON Has Been An Honor And A Privilege

The Super Eagles of Nigeria are now favorites at the Africa Cup of Nations after defeating Guinea-Bissau 2-0 on Wednesday to become the only team to make it through the group stage in Cameroon with a perfect record. 

The form of Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho has sent a message across Africa — he scored the match-winner against Egypt and provided a beautiful assist on Wednesday's opening goal — but the player to watch has been Nantes winger Moses Simon.
