Back in 2019, Cruzeiro — a two-time winner of the Libertadores and four-time Brasileirão champion — suffered relegation to Série B for the first time in the club's 98-year existence.
Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger loves a good complaint. Now acting as FIFA's Chief of Global Football Development, it is his job to complain, masking his gripes as ways to improve the game.
While most soccer leagues around the world eschew the idea of an all-star game, celebrity, legends and testimonial matches are one of the coolest aspects of the world’s game. I’m not sure we’ve ever seen a lineup as star-studded as the Roberto Carlos and Ronaldinho Miami friendly on Saturday.
Denver Not Selected For 2026 World Cup, And It's Unclear If FIFA Ever Knew The City's Exact Location

Australia’s backup goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne made himself a legend on Monday with his bizarre antics during a penalty shootout against Peru to send his country to the World Cup. We’ve now learned that he’s not crazy after a Redmayne water bottle incident with Peru’s goalkeeper was caught on camera.
Redmayne isn’t some bearded goof; he’s a cold and calculated evil villain. Every good story needs a villain.
Despite turning 36 at the end of July, Brazilian legend Hulk still packs as much power as ever, particularly in his concussive left foot.
Although the nation of Brazil is free of weapons of mass destruction, it still possesses the key technologies needed to produce nuclear weapons — the science is all stored in Hulk's left.
On Tuesday night in Brazil's second division, ninth-place Náutico was scheduled to host Vasco da Gama in Recife with kickoff set for 6:00 p.m. ET.
But 13 minutes past the scheduled hour, Náutico had still not emerged from its dressing room while Vasco da Gama and the referees had already taken the pitch.

There's no time like the present to increase your audience by splicing together whatever it is your doing with the global Stranger Things: Season 4 phenomenon, and the national teams of Austria and Denmark tapped into that golden content on Monday during a Nations League match at Ernst Happel Stadion in Vienna.
It began with the flickering of lights — goddamn Vecna up in here — and a power outage that delayed kickoff by 90 minutes. Fans tried to illuminate the pitch with cellphones to get the action started, but after that failed they did the wave.
Do you like the cold? How about snow days? Did you enjoy games this past year like the Canada-Mexico matchup in Edmonton and the USMNT fixture against Honduras in Saint Paul?
If you cherished the uniqueness of those freezing fixtures as much as I did, you'll love the latest news from Concacaf: Last week, the Football Association of Greenland (KAK) applied to become Concacaf's 42nd member.
Should Concacaf approve Greenland's request, it's an impressive commitment from a federation that has become synonymous with the zany and unpredictable.
