Rodrygo Was Almost Certainly The Greatest Youth Futsal Player Of All-Time

The fastest LaLiga debut goal for Real Madrid since Ronaldo (and a brilliant one at that). A hat-trick on his second Champions League appearance. That ridiculous outside-of-the-foot volley against Club Brugge.

Why The Best Free Kick Of João Pedro’s Life Didn’t Count

In some ways, you have to feel bad for João Pedro. In others, you can’t help but laugh at the Cagliari striker for not knowing better. After the João Pedro free kick fiasco against Lazio on Thursday, either reaction is appropriate.

Early in Cagliari’s visit to Lazio, the referee blew his whistle for a foul about 30 yards from Lazio’s net. João Pedro stepped up and smashed the free kick straight into the back of the net. 

It was a flabbergasting shot, rifled straight into the upper 90.

And it didn’t count.

Watch Mal Pugh Challenge Her MLB-Star Boyfriend To See Who’s The Better Athlete

Who’s a better athlete, a professional soccer player or a pro baseball player? Mal Pugh and her baseball-playing boyfriend set out to scientifically prove who is the better athlete.

Pugh, the young USWNT star who scored in and won her first Women’s World Cup last summer, is dating Atlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson. The sports power couple was featured in a recent video on MLB’s YouTube page pitting the two against each other in a series of challenges.

We’re Still Trying To Wrap Our Heads Around This Goal-Line Clearance

The goal was gaping for Kerem Demirbay. Kai Havertz had just struck the crossbar, but the ball bounced kindly to Demirbay wide open in the six-yard box. It was impossible to miss. 

Well, almost impossible.

Center back Nico Elvedi never gave up on the play and against all odds recovered in time to get a foot to Demirbay’s shot, clearing the ball off the line in spectacular fashion.

Manuel Neuer’s Isolation Training Setup Is The Stuff Of Fantasy

With the Bundesliga’s restart just over a week away, it’ll be fascinating to see the differing levels of fitness on display when, for example, Borussia Dortmund hosts Schalke in the Revierderby on Saturday, May 16. After over two months off, it’s only natural that some players will have taken better care of themselves, while others might need an extra week or two to last more than 60 minutes.

Bayern Munich’s Top 10 Goals Of The Past Decade Are Unbelievable

No decade in the Bundesliga’s 57-year history has been as thoroughly dominated by one club as Bayern Munich’s reign over the last 10 years. Apart from Borussia Dortmund’s back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012, the rest of the 2010s were steamrolled by Bayern.

Over this period, the club routinely landed players in the Bundesliga's top 10 scorers each season. The notable examples include Arjen Robben, Thomas Müller, Mario Gómez, Mario Mandžukić and Robert Lewandowski.

Messi’s Top 100 Goals — The Highlight Reel That Just Keeps On Giving

Goal #100: An acrobatic side volley that’s made to look effortless. Goal #99: A velvety first touch loaded with purpose, a graceful cut beyond a defender and a curled finish inside the far post.

And now there are 98 superior goals?! As Ray Hudson once said, “The insane becomes the routine with this man.” 

‘Sadio Mané: Made In Senegal’ Documentary Looks Incredible

Over the course of the last four years, Sadio Mané has become world-renowned while shining for Liverpool. He’s now a two-time PFA Team of the Year selection, a Premier League Golden Boot recipient, the 2019 African Footballer of the Year and a UEFA Champions League winner. 

If you ask Lionel Messi who the best player on the planet was last year, he’ll tell you it was Mané.

Super 8: The Greatest Goals Mexico Has Ever Scored At The Gold Cup

Before clicking play on the video above, you obviously know what goal comes in at number one in this countdown. One could argue that Giovani dos Santos’ chip in the 2011 Gold Cup Final is still, to this day, setting the USMNT back further and further. We’ll never truly know the lasting repercussions of Tim Howard, Eric Lichaj, Michael Bradley, Carlos Bocanegra and Jermaine Jones being simultaneously ruined by Dos Santos, but I’ll tell you one thing, the United States still hasn’t recovered.
