Italy’s Next Great Midfielder: Gaetano Castrovilli’s Dribbling Skills Are Insane

Player Throws Spare Ball For Greatest Tactical Foul We’ve Ever Seen

It’s a tactic that’s frequently implemented during elementary school recess, but its application at the professional level is far less pronounced: After a quick throw-in during a match in Romania between Makedonija Gjorce Petrov and Akademija Pandev, a defender chased after play with a spare ball in his hands before throwing it at the feet of the attacking player and knocking the live ball away. 

Bukayo Saka, What Have You Done?

After a run of four straight draws, Arsenal finally got back in the win column with a 4-0 victory over Newcastle United at the Emirates on Sunday. The two clubs somehow entered today’s match level on points, but the gulf in quality between the sides was evident from the off as Newcastle’s beleaguered attack managed only two shots on target while Arsenal dripped quality in the midfield and wide attacking areas.

Dani Ceballos and Mesut Özil looked like the most likely creators for the Gunners as the two combined for seven key passes, but Nicolas Pépé was in inspired form as well.

Neymar’s Back To His Best, And This Video Shows How Insane ‘His Best’ Truly Is

Dele Alli And Divock Origi Provide Us With A Masterclass In Control

Two momentous matches, two heavenly touches. 

In the 31st minute of Liverpool’s Merseyside derby with Everton, Divock Origi gave the Reds a 3-1 lead after cushioning a long ball from Dejan Lovren straight into his own path. His second touch was a looping effort over the despairing Jordan Pickford.  

Origi’s first touch was softer than Charmin. 

The 5 Best Goals Of The 2019 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup

The 2019 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup came to a close on Sunday with Portugal lifting the trophy following a 6-4 victory over Italy in the final. The Azzurri’s Gabriele Gori finished as top scorer for the second-straight tournament with 16 goals in six games, but it was Japan’s Ozu Moreira who received the Golden Ball award as the World Cup’s best player. 

Eden Hazard Nutmegs Ref On Glorious Goal But Suffers Nasty Ankle Injury Shortly After

Tuesday’s Champions League Group A encounter between Real Madrid and PSG at the Santiago Bernabéu was pretty much meaningless.
