Christian Pulisic was involved in an awesome charity event from the USMNT's training base in Houston, Texas, before the team's crucial World Cup qualifier against Mexico on Thursday night. Partnering with PUMA and the Champions Chess Tour, Pulisic played against a 10-year-old version of reigning five-time World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen using the "Play Magnus" mobile app.
For every move that Pulisic made before his inevitable demise, PUMA donated $500 to UNICEF. Very few people reading this article will appreciate how difficult a task that truly is.

The life of a professional footballer can be a surprisingly lonesome one. You sacrifice the traditional avenues of making friends and meeting significant others for a highly regimented existence that is entirely self-centered, and you never know who you can really trust when you have a net worth of $100 million at the age of 23. When looking for a Kylian Mbappe girlfriend, this seems to be the case — Mbappé appears to be alone and single right now.
Rap Sensation Jack Harlow Settles Chelsea Keeper Debate, Says Playing Soccer Was Proudest Achievement
If you’re out of the loop on popular music artists today, Jack Harlow is one of the biggest stars right now. You probably have heard him featured on the radio’s favorite song “INDUSTRY BABY” by Lil Nas X, or you’re one of his 42.5 million monthly Spotify listeners.
Big news out of Copiapó, Chile today where the illegitimate love child of French football superstars Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappé was found after being born on New Year's Day at 9:09 p.m. local time.

In all honesty, the majority of soccer documentaries, unless you're a diehard supporter of the club featured, are skippable. In the end they all play out as exercises in public relations — glamorized puff pieces looking to move the needle on brand awareness.
