16-Year-Old Olivia Moultrie Might Win NWSL Goal Of The Week Honors With Latest Effort

After becoming the youngest goal scorer in NWSL history last month, 16-year-old Portland Thorns prodigy Olivia Moultrie got her second of the season Saturday night and it'll certainly be up for Goal of the Week honors.

The Thorns welcomed Gotham FC to Providence Park with Portland near the top of the table and NJ/NY beneath the playoff line, and it only took the home side five minutes to open the scoring through Taylor Porter after Gotham failed to clear a corner kick.

Could This Be The MLS Assist Of The Year?

A fairly unassuming weeknight MLS match between the cellar-dwelling Chicago Fire and Toronto FC proved to be anything but on Wednesday night.

Imagine kicking soccer balls at an 18-foot-tall dart board, dodging giant exercise balls while dribbling through a maze of cones, a catapult launching soccer balls from 40 yards away and shooting through seemingly peanut-sized targets.

Hey Look, A Soccer Ball! Let's Go Play!

We've featured some talented bears on the hallowed pages of The18 in the past. Orlando City's Júnior Urso. Grant Conybear, who taught us how to rake a cross-field switch. Nika, the bear who predicted matches at the Confederations Cup.

No Two Liverpool Away Jerseys Are The Same With Unique Construction Process

Liverpool unveiled its 2022-23 away kit Tuesday and promptly handed it a debut in a preseason friendly against Manchester United at Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok. The thing might be cursed after Jürgen Klopp's side fell 4-0 to Erik ten Hag and The Revolution, but we should still celebrate a kit that celebrates nights of sweat dripping from the ceiling.

Romeo Beckham's First Inter Miami Goal Is A Bending Free Kick For Dad

Brace yourself for the sequel, Bend It Like Beckham 2: Going Bottom Bins On Orlando City B, because 19-year-old Romeo Beckham, son of Old Golden Balls himself, has curled home his first set-piece goal for Inter Miami CF II in MLS Next Pro.

Romeo's first foray into football was back in 2014 with Arsenal's Academy, but he was released and briefly pursued a fledgling tennis career while training alongside Andy Murray. However, he returned to the sport last year by joining Miami's reserve team and it looks like the correct decision.
