Ronaldo Joins Messi In Ghosting Out Of Champions League After Home Loss To Atlético

They're not finished. They're still two of the planet's best footballers and will battle for the game's biggest prizes over the next few years, but it's clear now that the 2021-22 season marks a personal decline for both Lionel Messi and Cristiano that's indicative of life as a professional athlete in your mid to late thirties. 

For Messi, it'll be the first time in 14 years that he doesn't surpass 30 goals across all competitions. He's at seven with just 10 matches remaining. 

Dudosa Falta De Edson Álvarez Generó El Gol Con Que El Benfica Eliminó Al Ajax De La Champions

Benfica visitó Ámsterdam y con apenas un tiro al arco eliminó al Ajax de la Champions League. El gol del triunfo de los portugueses vino a través de un cabezazo de Darwin Núñez, tras una dudosa falta cobrada al mexicano Edson Álvarez.

USMNT Striker Power Rankings: Who Deserves To Lead The Line Against Mexico?

The last time I rolled out this USMNT striker depth chart/power rankings article was seven months ago. Despite including nine center forwards, Ricardo Pepi wasn't even on the list — the 18-year-old was still a week away from receiving his first senior call-up, and things really escalated quickly from there.

Vini Jr. Again Shows Why He's The Best Brazilian Forward In Europe Right Now

Vinícius Júnior's transformation this season has been well documented. The 21-year-old is now one of LaLiga's finest finishers and far more efficient in the final third, while his combination play with Ferland Mendy, Toni Kroos and Karim Benzema from Real's left-hand side makes for some of the most exciting viewing in football.

Sam Kerr Keeps Chelsea's Title Charge On Course With Clutch Stoppage Time Winner

Sam Kerr struck in stoppage time to keep alive Chelsea's Women's Super League title hopes as they snatched a 1-0 win on Sunday over a dogged Aston Villa side, but Arsenal remain top after a 3-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion.

MLS MVP Carles Gil On Playing In Snow: This Is Not Fútbol, Stop The F***ing Game

Reigning MLS MVP Carles Gil didn't hide his feelings after the New England Revolution dropped a 3-2 decision to visiting Real Salt Lake in snowy conditions on Saturday in Foxborough, Mass.

Heavy snow fell in the first half before windy conditions became more prevalent in the second. New England saw a 2-0 lead evaporate after the bottom fell out in the second half. Real Salt Lake halved the deficit in the 78th minute, forged a tie in the 88th minute and pulled ahead in stoppage time.

Gil, the Revolution's captain, wasn't at a loss for words after the match.

Barcelona Hammers Real Madrid 5-0 To Clinch Third Straight Primera División Title

24 matches played, 24 matches won, 136 goals scored, six conceded and one Primera División title secured with six games still remaining. There's no stopping Barcelona Femení in Spain now after the team's 5-0 beatdown of Real Madrid at Estadi Johan Cruyff on Sunday, and it'll again be Real Madrid that's tasked with stopping Barça in Europe when the two sides square off in the Champions League quarterfinals later this month.

Ukrainian Andriy Yarmolenko Overcome With Emotion After Scoring On West Ham Return

LONDON - Ukrainian winger Andriy Yarmolenko and Spanish midfielder Pablo Fornals scored a goal each as West Ham defeated Aston Villa 2-1 at home on Sunday, ending Steven Gerrard's side's run of three consecutive wins in the Premier League.

Yarmolenko had been granted compassionate leave after Russia's invasion of Ukraine last month and then fell ill, missing West Ham's 1-0 Europa League loss in Seville on Thursday.

It Doesn't Get Any More Important Or Dramatic Than Jesse Marsch's First Leeds United Win

LEEDS, England - Joe Gelhardt came off the bench to score a stoppage-time winner for Leeds United as they snatched a thrilling 2-1 home victory over fellow strugglers Norwich City in a pulsating Premier League clash on Sunday.

Leeds looked to have thrown away three vital points in the battle for relegation when Kenny McLean fired home Teemu Pukki's pass in the 91st minute, but Gelhardt spared their blushes in a game the hosts should have won comfortably.

Cloud Over Chelsea Momentarily Lifted By Kai Havertz's Heavenly First Touch

Chelsea played its first home match since owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned by the UK government and disqualified by the Premier League — leaving the club in limbo and immediately needing a new owner — on Sunday, and it was fittingly against Newcastle, which has been steadily climbing the table since its own new owners flexed their financial might in the January window.
