Lack of scoring continues to plague England in 1-0 win vs. Haiti

BRISBANE — England coach Sarina Wiegman says her squad are missing the ruthlessness needed to score goals, a troubling tendency that reared its ugly head in a 1-0 victory over minnows Haiti at the Women's World Cup on Saturday.

Georgia Stanway's penalty kick was the game's only goal, stretching the Lionesses' lack of a goal from open play to more than three games.

Christian Pulisic takes only 17 minutes to get his first 2 assists for AC Milan

It was only a preseason match against a third division team but Christian Pulisic won't care — he'll just be happy to be starting and contributing again after wasting away at Chelsea.

Christopher Nkunku scores his first goal for Chelsea as Blues humble Wrexham in North Carolina

Chelsea defeated newly promoted League 2 side and U.S. favorites Wrexham on Wednesday 5-0 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

This was a first look at a Chelsea side which has offloaded so many players this summer. The Blues’ starting XI was a testament to how few familiar faces are on the roster.

Bayern Munich score four touchdowns during friendly match that ended 27-0

If you’ve ever been curious about what happens when a top-tier club faces a team from the ninth tier, look no further. Bayern Munich obliterated minnows FC Rottach-Egern 27-0 on Tuesday during a friendly.

That score line looks more appropriate for a random college football game between Iowa and Nevada than it does for a soccer game.

FC Rottach-Egern are the local team near Bayern’s summer training camp and have faced the Bundesliga champs three times now. Each contest ends with Bayern scoring 20+ goals.

Women's World Cup odds: Is there any hope outside of USA or England?

With an expanded 32-team tournament and matches across Australia and New Zealand, the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup (beginning with a crowd of over 100,000 for the Matildas opener against Ireland) is going to be the best in the competition's 32-year history.

The USWNT is favored for a three-peat but that's never been done before, and there will be fierce competition from European champions England, two-time world champs Germany and teams looking to take the next step like France and Spain.
