18-Yard Overhead Kick Is Unlike Any You’ve Ever Seen Before

We roughly know what to expect when encountering an overhead kick. We've become desensitized thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.

What makes this banger from Flamengo’s Giorgian De Arrascaeta so wonderful is that it largely disrupts those notions on its way to a higher, more transcendent form of bicycle. 

PSG Attacker Uses Zidane Turn To Beat 5 Defenders Before Filthy Goal

Is there such a thing as a disastrous 4-0 victory? There is if you’re Paris Saint-Germain and you’re beating down on Ligue 1 opponents while waiting for the Champions League group stage to begin.

It’s been a vengeful week for U.S. Soccer. Last night at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, the USMNT romped to a 6-0 victory over Trinidad and Tobago, exacting a small fraction of revenge for that frightful night in Couva. The win came only two days after the USWNT had vanquished its own personal demons by defeating Sweden at the Women’s World Cup.

Tobin Heath Brings Nutmegs And Magical Solo Goals To The U.S. Party

The USWNT defeated Sweden 2-0 in Le Havre on Thursday to clinch top spot in Group F and confirm next Monday’s Round of 16 meeting with Spain, exorcising some three-year-old demons in the process.

The game finished 2-2 in regular time with F2 Freestylers baller Jeremy Lynch scoring two goals for the England XI while the World XI responded with goals from Bolt and Love Island’s Kem Cetinay. The World XI would eventually triumph on penalty kicks.
