A Day To Forget: Remembering The Man Who Missed 3 PKs In One Copa America Match

If you ever think you’re having a bad day at the office — maybe your alarm didn’t go off or the coffee tastes like garbage or you’re one of the millions of people suffering from wage theft — be glad you are not Martín Palermo, the man who holds the Guinness World Record for most missed PKs in a single match.

Complete Champions League List Of Winners

The Champions League — formerly the European Cup — is the premier club soccer competition in the world, annually anointing a new champion to the team in Europe able to navigate a gauntlet of matches to reign supreme.

While the likes of James Rodriguez, Lionel Messi, Neymar, Wesley Sneijder and Diego Forlan have dazzled at recent tournaments, none of them feature in this list of the 20 most prolific World Cup top scorers of all time.

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.

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.
