Yesterday, Hoffenheim hosted Mainz in the final Bundesliga match before the winter break (the league doesn’t recommence play until the weekend of Jan. 18-20). Hoffenheim took the lead through Kerem Demirbay in the 11th minute, but Mainz equalized five minutes later via Jean-Philippe Mateta.
In keeping with the spirit of Christmas, the match ended in a draw and the spoils were shared. However, the game's true highlight was the visiting Mainz supporters serenading the Rhein-Neckar-Arena with this lovely rendition of “Last Christmas” by English pop duo Wham!.
It’s quite cold and snowy in Serbia right now, a fact that hasn’t kept those in Belgrade from going outside.
Thousands of protesters marched through the streets of Serbia’s capital on Saturday night despite immense snowfall and freezing temperatures.
How can the U.S. ever expect to win a World Cup when its star player can’t even grasp Concacaf-rules football?
Christian Pulisic, the 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund who is already perhaps the USMNT’s best player, was a part of the FIFA 19 World Tour with a new video that dropped this week. Pulisic faced off against BVB teammate and FIFA 17 cover boy Marco Reus in a no-rules match of FIFA 19.
No rules means just what you’d think: no offside, no fouls, no bookings.
Today in the Turkish second division, second-place Denizlispor hosted league leaders Genclerbirligi at the Denizli Atatürk Stadium. With Genclerbirligi enjoying a five-point lead in the table, this was a massive week 15 match up.
However, the game would ultimately finish 0-0 after Denizlispor’s Burak Calik failed to convert this chance after dribbling around the keeper. His final shot was ultimately saved on the goal-line via an outrageous kick save. Genclerbirligi's going after that TFF First League title, baby!
