Can Any MLS Clubs Upset Their Liga MX Opponents In The CCL Quarterfinals?

With five MLS clubs and three Liga MX sides making up the quarterfinals of the 2021 CONCACAF Champions League, the stage is perfectly set to deliver the matchups we all want to see.

No One Was More Excited For Lille’s Last-Minute Goal Than Their Commentator

Lille controls its own destiny in the mission to claim the club’s first Ligue 1 title in a decade. Only six points separates Lille, the current league leaders with 73, and fourth place Lyon at 67. 

On Sunday, Lille secured an imperative 3-2 comeback victory against Lyon. Les Douges conceded twice in the opening 35 minutes but rallied back to retake the top of Ligue 1 from Paris Saint-Germain. Burak Yilmaz capped off the dramatic comeback in the 85th minute with the cheekiest of chips.

GLASGOW - Rangers were knocked out in the Scottish Cup quarterfinals with a 4-2 defeat on penalties after St Johnstone keeper Zander Clark set up a last-gasp extra-time equalizer and saved two penalties in the shootout to end the Glasgow side's hopes of winning the double.

I Can’t Stop Laughing At This Poor Defender Who Unwittingly Blocked 3 Shots In 5 Seconds (He’s Fine)

Werder Bremen defender Marco Friedl deserves the Scott Sterling Medal of Courage after the beating he took protecting his goal on Saturday. The 23-year-old Austrian blocked the ball not once, not twice but three times in about five seconds. The last two came with him writhing on the ground in pain from the first, including the last one after the whistle had blown. It was hilarious and miserable all at once. 

Adebayo Akinfenwa's Injury-Time Penalty Preserves Wycombe's Slim Hopes For Survival

When Wycombe earned promotion to the Championship for the first time in 2020, the Chairboys became instant favorites for relegation.

This was a side that finished 17th in League One in 2018/19 and was predicted to be near the bottom end of the table once again in 19/20. Manager Gareth Ainsworth's side finished eighth in a COVID-shortened season and only earned a playoff spot due to the points per game formula applied by the league.

New Balance Is Running The Game By Promoting Fearlessly Independent Players

After a year postponed and the swapping of high-profile matches at the home of the Colorado Rapids for individual training sessions in deserted local parks, GAM United’s Elijah Mwenebitu is looking at everything as an opportunity to be chased, which isn’t exactly a new way of operating for the 23-year-old midfield destroyer. 

Mexico’s Charlyn Corral Stars Alongside Salah, Pogba, Beyoncé In New ‘Impossible Is Nothing’ Campaign

Back in 1974, adidas began associating itself with the “Impossible is Nothing” slogan, which was an extract from a Muhammad Ali quote.

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
