Pedro Wonder Goal Will Make You Wonder If He's Left-Footed

Pedro's left-footed goal against Everton today was so good it almost (almost) made me forget that, as a Tottenham fan, I'm supposed to hate Chelsea – especially at the moment as the Spurs sit four points behind in the race for the Premier League title.

It most certainly was good enough for me to question whether or not Pedro is left-footed.

Marcus Rashford Dive Saddens Children Everywhere

Marcus Rashford is a likable guy. Even those of us who are not Manchester United fans have to admire his earnest demeanor and fairytale-like story.

Signed to Manchester United's academy system at only seven years old, Rashford rose through the club ranks to make a series of impressive debuts – scoring in each and every one of them.

Here's a list of debut games with United's first team in which Rashford scored:

First-team debut (Europa League): 2 goals

Premier League debut (versus Arsenal): 2 goals

Tottenham Hotspur Find New Temporary Home For Next Season

Following a board meeting today, Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed they will play all of their home games at Wembley Stadium next season while waiting for their new world-class stadium to be finished.

Spurs have called White Hart Lane their home for the past 118 years. The new stadium, set to be ready by the start of the 2018-19 season, will be adjacent to their current home.

Marco Fabian Can't Stop, Won't Stop Scoring

Guadlajara native Marco Fabian has scored four goals in the past four games for Eintracht Frankfurt. Fabian's good form has helped Eintracht Frankfurt into the DFB-Pokal final, where they will face Borussia Dortmund on May 27th.

Fabian and Eintracht Frankfurt will be looking for some revenge, as the last time these two teams played Dortmund won 3-1.

Jose Mourinho’s Anti-Football Peaks With Oafish Marouane Fellaini Red Card

It’s tragic to think about the gross output of the cast of characters in the Manchester derby when bridled with the vast sums of money spent on assembling them. The latest edition of Manchester United vs. Manchester City was a sobering affair that could serve as a harrowing documentary of the wastes of our time.

The Best Player In The World Throughout April Was Real Madrid’s Isco

April's El Clásico was one of the best matches of the year, but my only complaint was that Isco didn’t come off the bench for Real Madrid. I’ll be the first to admit it, I was extremely late on the Isco train because of this reason — he's on the bench a lot.

The 25-year-old has never started more than 26 La Liga matches in a single season with Real Madrid. This year, he’s appeared as a substitute 11 times, and he’s on pace to total fewer league minutes than he ever has in a season with the club. 

Get In Before The Hipsters: Venice-Based Venezia FC Is Your New Favorite Club

Paris, London, Madrid, Rome, Venice — all are world renowned cities, but one is not like the others. 

Every major European city is also represented by an internationally famous soccer club too; that is, every city except Venice, Italy. 

But that might soon change. Just last week, Venezia FC secured promotion to Serie B, Italy’s second division. That may not sound like much, but given the club’s history, combined with its newfound ambition and financial backing, Italians are now paying attention to the team from the Venetian Lagoon.

Messi Doesn’t Always Swap Shirts. But When He Does, It’s With A Legend

Jersey swapping at the end of football matches is a ritual which goes back to the beginning of time (1931). It’s a sign of respect and admiration after having spent 90 minutes trying to kill each other, and it’s given us some truly historic moments after titanic clashes.

England’s group defeat to Brazil at the 1970 World Cup offered up one of the most iconic images in the sport: England captain Bobby Moore and Brazilian great Pele exchanging shirts after a fierce 1-0 match in Guadalajara.
