This Is Why You Should’ve Never Man-Marked Diego Maradona

Argentina’s opening match of the 1986 FIFA World Cup in Mexico was against a South Korean side that was participating in the tournament for the first time since 1954. Argentina’s 1982 World Cup campaign, after having won the 1978 edition on home turf, had been a disaster. 

It had been Maradona’s first World Cup and defeats against Italy and Brazil had offered a glimpse of how to disrupt the Argentinian star: aggressively man-mark and foul the Argentine No. 10.

A Superb Strike From Thomas Meunier Was A Nail In The Coffin For Real Madrid

OLE! Fantastic Goal Alert! Thomas Menuier silenced the Spanish fans as he took a poor pass out of the back from Real Madrid and TRULY made them pay the ultimate price. The price happened to be a upper ninety shifting laser off of his left boot. Real Madrid missing most of their starters for this International Champions Cup were put to bed after being down 3-0 40 minutes into their match against PSG. Although it still is preseason could PSG still be a team to make a solid UCL run without Zlatan? I guess we will find out! Which goal was better, PSG's 1-0 or this one? You decide! 

McNamara Breaks The Sound Barrier In A Rough Match For NYCFC

NYCFC took a 4-1 beating in the New York Derby Sunday afternoon after Bradley Wright-Phillips netted a brace. It was a one sided affair but NYCFC seemed to never go away due to Thomas McNamara's clinging to dear life. McNamara pulled NYCFC one goal closer at the very end of the first half with an absolute screamer that injected hope into visitors. A dream strike it was after he took a touch across his body and looked up to see the time and space he had. McNamara was nearly the hero again in the 53rd minute when a similar strike just hit the cross bar and bounced off.

It’s Preseason, But That Didn’t Stop Him From Scoring The Goal Of His Life

The International Champions Cup (ICC) is upon us! While the safe money is on Leicester City to win the competition which “revolutionized the international soccer landscape”, Australia’s Melbourne Victory and Italy’s Juventus took to the Melbourne Cricket Ground to stake their own claims on winning the competition’s historic fourth edition.

No one told Carlos Blanco that it was a meaningless preseason game — the guy apparently lives for the ICC. 

Dembele Roasts Man United

Recent signee, Ousmane Dembele roasted the defense of Manchester United to put the game completely out of reach Friday morning as he tallied Dortmund's 3rd goal of the match. A rough start for José Mourinho, as Man U had a disorderly day which led to a 4-1 beating but still a friendly at the end of the day. Dortmund is a team to be reckoned with this upcoming fall with Mario Gotze returning to join Reus while also signing German star, André Schürrle. A brilliant solo goal for Dembele is one that we hope to see more of this season.

The Pitch Invading Dog That Won The World Cup

The 1962 FIFA World Cup was the seventh edition of the international competition, and it will long be remembered as the most brutally violent.

An injury to Pele, a match between Chile and Italy that became known as the Battle of Santiago and the inspiration for the use of yellow and red cards to clearly define offenses are some of the lasting legacies of the '62 World Cup in Chile.

Paul Pogba Ended Romelu Lukaku's Life Playing Basketball

Juventus (for now) midfielder Paul Pogba and Everton (for now) striker Romelu Lukaku are in-real-life pals, and while enjoying a post Euros and pre-season vacation in Miami they decided to have a little game of basketball. Nothing could go wrong there, right?
