The worst case scenario heading into September's international window, given the argument over Jordan Pefok's omission despite his incredible start to life in the Bundesliga, was that all three of Gregg Berhalter's selected strikers would fail against the modest defensive challenges posed by Japan and Saudi Arabia.
Oh boy. After getting played off the pitch against Japan last Friday, our USMNT vs Saudi Arabia player ratings from Tuesday's friendly in Spain aren't much better.
Saudi Arabia entered the match having recently gone goalless against Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador, and that lack of a cutting edge was evident against the U.S. — although the Americans did take it in turns to gift opportunities to the Green Falcons.
If the USMNT is going to reach the knockout rounds of the World Cup, Christian Pulisic is going to have to standout in the final third. He's halfway there with a new Christian Pulisic PUMA collection ("CP Collection") that features his first-ever signature cleat and some July 4th approved apparel.
One small step for Luís Figo, one giant leap for... well, I'm not sure who really benefits from this situation apart from Luís Figo and the seven players who got to set a world record for the highest football match ever at 20,230 feet in zero-gravity.
It's pretty crazy to think that Estadio Hernando Siles in La Paz, Bolivia, isn't all that far behind at 11,932 feet.
But Figo, along with a team of footballers from across Europe, Latin America and the Middle East, set the new Guinness World Record inside an aircraft that contained a pitch measuring 807 square feet.
"Beyoncé" is trending on Twitter. Care to know why?
Over the weekend, a tweet claiming that no football player alive is more popular than Beyoncé riled up the whole of Twitter.
So many people think football players are crazy popular. It’s so weird. Like how can you say a football player is more popular than Beyonce? Then name two football players than even I wouldn’t recognize.Lol

The FIFA 23 release time in the United States for players purchasing the standard edition of the game is nearly upon us, while those who've dropped a little extra on the FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition get to enjoy three days early access.
The Sidemen Charity Match was inarguably the greatest edition of the event since its first in 2016. The soccer match gave us wonderful goals, tackles, celebrations and moments of comedy – all protagonized by many of social media’s most beloved influencers.
One of the most anticipated appearances was that of our very own iShowSpeed, and boy did he deliver.
EA Sports has released the FIFA 23 Soundtrack and it features a mix of household names and many relative unknowns. With Bad Bunny, J Balvin and Jack Harlow headlining the track list, many others steal the headlines like Ark Woods, Bianca Costa and Trueno.
FIFA music hits everyone differently and songs that fly under the radar at the beginning of the game can become fan favorites months down the line. As you play, make playlists of your favorite songs and listen to those as you drive around town or walk to class. Use this as a jumping-off point though.
