Milan’s Gennaro Gattuso Would've Preferred Spending His Sunday Being Stabbed

Benevento’s raucous point against AC Milan on Sunday, their first after 15 matches in Serie A, was as historic as it was surreal. It put an end to the worst losing start ever in Europe’s big five leagues, but it was also miraculously earned by goalkeeper Alberto Brignoli after the shot-stopper pushed forward on a 95th minute free kick.

Also, it was a glorious diving header to make life that much more hellish for the floundering seven-time European champions, Milan.

Watch Goalie Score 95th-Minute Equalizer Against AC Milan For Benevento’s First Point Of The Season

Benevento finally got off the goose egg. After starting the Serie A campaign with 14 straight losses, an Alberto Brignoli goal in the 95th minute gave Benevento a 2-2 home draw with AC Milan on Sunday. Oh, did we mention Brignoli is a goalkeeper?

With Benevento trailing 2-1 late but with a man advantage after Alessio Romagnoli was sent off for a second yellow card, Brignoli marched up the pitch for a free kick in the fifth minute of five minutes of stoppage time. Improbably, the ball found his head and zipped past Gianluigi Donnarumma and into the goal. 

Move Over Freddy Adu, There’s A New 14-Year-Old Phenom Getting Minutes In Europe

AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma, Toulouse’s Alban Lafont, Benfica’s Mile Svilar and Glenavon’s Conner Byrne: while all are teenage goalkeepers playing senior football in Europe, only one stands alongside Freddy Adu as having made their professional debut at age 14 (and perhaps as also having an insatiable thirst for Sierra Mist, but that’s totally unfounded at this point).

Fordham Had Never Won An NCAA Tourney Game. Now They’re In The Quarterfinals

The 2017 NCAA Men’s College Cup field has been whittled to eight with many of the usual suspects advancing to the quarterfinals. The marquee matchup of the quarters will be a rematch of last year’s College Cup final — Wake Forest, the top-seed, will take on back-to-back national champion Stanford. Seeds 2 through 5 remain alive as well: Indiana, North Carolina, Louisville and Akron. 

Interview: Going One-On-One With Seattle Sounders Goalkeeper Stefan Frei

You could forgive Stefan Frei for suffering from a professional hangover following his heroics in the 2016 MLS Cup final. The 31-year-old native of Switzerland's legend is forever woven inside the fabric of the league following that save on Jozy Altidore in the second half of extra-time, one of seven saves for Frei in a performance that saw him named MLS Cup MVP. 

Good Grief, How About THIS Save From Roman Burki?

Real Madrid’s 46-goal victory over APOEL dumped Borussia Dortmund from the Champions League on Tuesday regardless of their result against Tottenham, but a Christian Pulisic-less BVB still succumbed to a 2-1 defeat to Spurs at the Westfalenstadion.

And it all started so well for the home side. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave Dortmund the lead in the 31st minute after Andriy Yarmolenko provided a filthy assist for the Gabonese striker.

Watch This Goalie Make An Excellent Catch 10 Yards Outside His Box And Get Sent Off

German Lux has excellent hands, and you can see them on dispay here. The River Plate goalkeeper's excellent catch against Independiente probably saved a goal and also got Lux sent off. Independiente won 1-0, but I think we all know who the real winner is.

Also, we should talk about how amazing a name "German Lux" is. We should LUXuriate in it, if you will.

Here are some possible professions for someone named "German Lux":

Casino Owner

Cult Leader


Cruise Ship Lounge Singer

Strip Club Bartender

Anthropology Professor
