The Players With The Most Women’s World Cup Goals Of All Time

On June 7, the eighth edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup kicks off in Paris, France. The USWNT enters the tournament as the defending champions and the world’s No. 1 ranked side, and the team can still rely on Carli Lloyd, who finished joint-top scorer in 2015 with six goals. However, when it comes to the most Women’s World Cup goals of all time, the 36-year-old remains just outside the top 10 with seven total goals.

How A Country With A Population Under 5,000 Could Qualify For The 2019 Gold Cup

Montserrat — a tiny Caribbean island of less than 40 square miles named by Christopher Columbus, a territory of fewer than 5,000 inhabitants that was wrecked by a volcano 24 years ago, with a team ranked No. 200 in the world — is one win away from qualifying for the 2019 Gold Cup.

The Exciting Reason Why Gregg Berhalter Didn’t Call Up Tim Weah And Josh Sargent For March Friendlies

Christian Pulisic. Weston McKennie. Tyler Adams. The big Europe-based names are there. Well, except for a couple forwards. So why didn’t Gregg Berhalter call up other young stars like Tim Weah and Josh Sargent to the USMNT roster for the March 2019 friendlies?

Who’s The Favorite To Win The 2019 MLS Cup?

The 2019 Major League Soccer season begins Saturday. As we outlined in our, uh, let's call it preview, it’s gonna be an exciting campaign. But who are the favorites to reach the playoffs and win it all? Let’s take a look at the 2019 MLS odds.

Atlanta United won the 2019 MLS Cup with an exciting team led by record goal scorer Josef Martinez. But it was the New York Red Bulls who actually won the Supporters’ Shield, setting a league record for points in a season. 

Reviewing The Careers Of The Youngest Pro Athletes In American Sports

Earlier this week, 13-year-old Olivia Moultire made headlines when turning pro by signing an endorsement deal with Nike and a representation agreement with Wasserman Media Group. This is an unprecedented move in the women’s game — and really a rarity in all of sport given how young she is — but it’s certainly not without parallels on the men’s side. 

What's Behind The Declining Attendances In Australian Soccer?

The Australian A-League is in the midst of its 14th season, and although there are plans to expand the league by two teams by the start of the 2019-20 campaign (Macarthur South West United and Western United FC), attendance numbers remain a concern. 

FOX, Telemundo Turning To Trailblazing Women To Lead Women’s World Cup TV Coverage

Both FOX and Telemundo will call upon trailblazing women to lead their 2019 Women's World Cup TV coverage this summer.

Which Country Has The Most Coaches At The Top Level?

When Claude Puel was fired by Leicester City over the weekend, there were no more French head coaches at a top-flight Big 5 league outside of France. It got us thinking, which country produces the best coaches by nationality? 

Is it Italy, with its highly tactical league? Or England, the inventors of the sport? How about Germany, with the largest population in Europe? Spain’s gotta be up there with the deepest league in Europe, right? Or maybe France, which just won the World Cup?

Franck Ribery Is Still Bitter About Losing 2013 Ballon d’Or To Ronaldo; He Might Have A Point

The 2013 Ballon d'Or was one of the closest votes in the history of the award, given to the world’s best footballer in a given year. 

And Franck Ribery is still bitter he didn’t win. 

Does he have a point? Maybe.

The 2013 Ballon d'Or was an odd one. FIFA, which joined France Football in the awarding of the trophy in 2010, extended the voting period late in the process after announcing it had only received votes from less than 50 percent of eligible voters.
