What Is It Like To Watch El Clasico In Barcelona?

By: Casey Rhine

Ohhhh El Clásico, where to begin. One of soccer's most heated, yet most deeply cherished rivalries.Few of you readers get to experience El Clasico, in Barcelona, while it's happening. This was my mission on December 23rd and should be your mission on May 6th if you are not lucky enough to go to the game in the Camp Nou.

Do Carli Lloyd, Megan Rapinoe Deserve Spots On The USWNT Olympic Roster This Summer?

The USWNT just completed an expected-but-still-impressive showing at the 2021 SheBelieves Cup, winning all three matches to claim the tournament title for a fourth time in six years. While the exhibition is a good barometer of some of the world’s top national teams, it’s also one of the best chances to evaluate talent ahead of a big summer competition. With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics postponed to 2021, the question is: Who will make the USWNT Olympic roster this summer? 

Bundesliga Releases Powerful Video Calling Out The Asshats And Lily-Livered Losers On Social Media

German soccer and the Bundesliga are ramping up their campaigns off the field in 2021. A week after announcing the “You Can Count On Us” movement to support future gay players, the league is now pushing to tackle the hatred players face online. The new Bundesliga Unite Against Hate message is simple: don’t be a dick online.

Racing Louisville Is Immediately One Of The Best Away Days In The NWSL

Historically speaking, there’s only ever been one correct answer to the question of a dream away day in the National Women’s Soccer League. As well as producing the sort of football that’s landed two NWSL championships, the Portland Thorns boast the division’s best atmosphere with an average attendance (we have to go back to 2019 to look at such things) of over 20,000 at beautiful Providence Park.  

But I believe Portland has been usurped for three reasons: views, horse racing and bourbon.

Abby Wambach’s Goal Against Brazil In 2011 Was The Best In U.S. Soccer History And You Can’t Convince Me Otherwise

The U.S. women’s national team has a remarkable record of reaching the semifinals in every Women’s World Cup. It’s a major reason why we often refer to the USWNT as the greatest sports team of all time. But the road to the final four hasn’t always been easy, and in 2011, the USWNT came closer than ever to an early exit. Only a stunning late Abby Wambach goal vs Brazil — I’d argue the greatest goal in U.S. soccer history — saved the Americans from a quarterfinal exit. 

Santiago Solari Y Su Buena Adaptación A La Liga MX

El América no ganó ningún trofeo en el 2020 y los directivos decidieron desprenderse de Miguel Herrera antes del inicio del torneo Guardianes 2021. En enero, Santiago Solari fue nombrado como el nuevo técnico del equipo y está demostrando que los entrenadores extranjeros pueden adaptarse rápidamente a la Liga MX.

Toluca Mantiene El Liderato En México Tras Seis Jornadas

El Toluca del técnico argentino Hernán Cristante lidera el torneo Clausura 2021 del fútbol mexicano, al finalizar este miércoles la sexta jornada.

Con un gol del argentino Pedro Alexis Canelo, líder de los anotadores, los Diablos propiciaron a Pumas su tercer revés en cuatro partidos y se consolidaron en el primer lugar con cuatro triunfos, un empate, una derrota. En total son 13 puntos, los mismos que el América, pero con mejor diferencia de goles.

People Tend To Forget That Landon Donovan Was Fun As Hell With Everton

Christian Pulisic is better than Landon Donovan. That’s not my opinion — that’s Landon Donovan’s. At the age of 22, Pulisic has established himself at Chelsea. Donovan, at 22, was experiencing one of his least productive MLS seasons with an average San Jose Earthquakes team.

Oribe Peralta Ya No Es El Mismo: La Sequía Goleadora Del Delantero Mexicano

El delantero de las Chivas de Guadalajara, Oribe Peralta, ha estado muy lejos del nivel que alguna vez demostró con el América, pues sus números lo colocan en una muy mala posición para ser la solución en el ataque del Rebaño Sagrado.

Oribe no anota un gol desde el 31 de enero del 2020 cuando lo hizo desde el punto penal ante el Atlético de San Luis. Desde ese momento, suma más de un año sin marcar con su actual equipo.
