This One Answer Is Why Memphis Depay Can Match Ronaldo’s Legacy

Memphis Depay’s confidence has been evident ever since he had his first official press conference for Manchester United. He owned the podium that day. “We have to play for the trophies,” he said, like he had to get so many loafs of bread. And that’s not to say he came off as arrogant, quite the opposite: he alternated often between admitting he needed to work hard and listen to his manager.

This 12-Year-Old Is On The Fast Track To The Pros With This Goal

When we were 12 years old, we were just satisfied with putting the ball in the back of the net, no matter how it happened. Honestly, we were six years away from playing soccer like bees play tag. In the rare instance that one of us scored something that took any amount of skill, we we’re f***ing pumped.

 

Wayward American Prospect Julian Green To Stay At Bayern Another Year

After a disappointing loan spell at Hamburg SV in the Bundesliga, American 20-year-old Julian Green will give it another go at Bayern Munich in 2015/16.

He will start out in the U23s, where he will attempt to establish himself in the first team, and help the side win promotion to the German 3rd division. 

Jesus Corona Has Cemented Himself As Mexico’s Future With 'Bright Future' Award

It is really easy to overhype players in soccer, especially young, talented forwards who like to beat a man. It’s just so tempting to see a couple highlights, a couple good displays and label them the next great thing. But you know what? That’s exactly what we’re about to do, with a little qualifying. 

Jesus “Tecatito” Corona just won the CONCACAF Bright Future Award after helping Mexico win the Gold Cup, and there really is no arguing that he deserved it.

Cristiano Ronaldo Shares The Insecurity That Pushed Him To Be The Best

Looking at Cristiano Ronaldo, “insecure” is hardly the first word that comes to mind.

Ignoring all of the keyboard-psychologists out there, the man just doesn’t seem to have that much to be self conscious about. Success has been good to him. He is incredibly rich and one of the two best footballers in the world. If he wanted to, he could probably build a sun dial out of caviar and willing swimsuit models.  

Micronesia Beaten 46-0 By Vanuatu; Have Now Conceded 114 Goals In 3 Games

Sweden Shock Europe: Catch All You Need To Know About Euro U21 2015

What a final and what a surprise? After 120 hard-fought minutes and 10 penalties, Sweden kept the upper-hand against Portugal to claim their first ever victory in the UEFA Under 21 European Championship.

Lionel Messi is 28 years old. 

Depending on when you became a fan of soccer, that will strike you in a certain way. If you fell in love with the game around 2005 or 2006, you will probably not be able to believe your ears. “I remember when he played with Ronaldinho!” you’ll say — as in back when Ronaldinho was good. Yeah, that long ago — he has aged quite a lot in that time. He’s a man now, not a boy, not even a young man.

What is America in a word?

Such is a question for poets and philosophers, kings and presidents. 

I have no idea what America is in one word, but I do know what America is in one video, or more accurately, ‘Murica.
