Alex Morgan Makes Heart-Wrenching Goodbye Post To Her Baby, Vows To ‘Make It Worth It’

Alex Morgan will have a little extra motivation to win gold at this summer’s Tokyo Olympics. After publicly questioning the IOC over whether she would be allowed to bring her young child with her to the Games, the USWNT superstar posted a gut-wrenching farewell to young Charlie Elena Carrasco, vowing to make their absence “worth it.”

Morgan made the trip to Japan with her USWNT teammates this week, leaving behind her 14-month-old baby to go for her second Olympic gold medal. On Thursday, Morgan said goodbye to her child on Instagram.

A Small Club In Central France Is Developing One Of Europe’s Most Beautiful Stadiums

France’s Clermont Foot is a forward-thinking club. Between 2014 and 2017, the side was managed by the current coach of the women’s national team, Corinne Diacre, making her the first woman to coach a men’s professional team in a competitive match in France.  

After Diacre left to take charge of France, she was replaced by Pascal Gastien. Under Gastien, Clermont finished second in Ligue 2 during the 2020-21 season, achieving promotion to the top division for the first time in its 110-year history.

Solomon Islands League Produces One Of The Cleanest Volleys This World Has Ever Seen

The Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) is the forgotten child of the soccer world. The only time fans really hear about the OFC is when it sends New Zealand to a World Cup qualifying playoff that it loses nine times out of ten, or the Oceania team that gets sent to the Confederations Cup.

Anyone else remember when poor Tahiti was forced to play Spain, Uruguay and Nigeria at the 2013 Confederations Cup? It takes a special team to finish with a -23 goal differential after three games.

This Is Your Sign To Start Making Your Child Play Soccer

As many parents strive to watch their kids succeed in everything they do, there's nothing better than getting a little too excited about your offspring playing a sport. Not only is having your child play a sport a great way to keep them active and socialize with other kids, but have you ever thought about the potential income your child can bring in from kicking a ball?

The top 50 athletes in the world combined make nearly $2.8 billion a year. If that does not persuade you to sign your kid up for your local intramural league, then maybe this will.

End Pride Month Right By Checking Out The Greatest Pride Jerseys And Goal Celebration From Brazil

As Pride month comes to an end, there was a moment in Brazil’s second tier I felt was worth highlighting. Vasco da Gama is one of Brazil’s biggest clubs despite being relegated to Brasileirao Serie B last season. The following Vasco da Gama flag celebration definitely falls under the “feel good” category.

On Sunday, the club hosted Brusque in a league game and was all decked out for LGBTQ+ Pride. The corner flags were swapped to the rainbow flags and the home team sported some of the cleanest Pride kits I’ve ever seen.

U.S. Soccer’s Bizarre Twitter Rant Makes Me Want To Watch ‘LFG’ Even More

Released on June 24 on HBO Max, “LFG” is a documentary following members of the U.S. women’s national team in their fight for equal pay from the U.S. Soccer Federation. Based on the tweets from U.S. Soccer this week, I need to get an HBO Max subscription ASAP to see what has the USSF in such a tizzy.

LFG is the USWNT’s adopted slogan, an acronym for “Let’s Fucking Go!” The film, which debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival in June, appears to be “Let’s fucking go after USSF,” if a recent Twitter thread is anything to go by. 

Messi’s Teammates Shower Him With Wine And Affection On 34th Birthday

Footballers have frequently spoken about how the periods of “rest and relaxation” at major international tournaments are merely a euphemism for being bored out of their collective minds. It’s always a fascinating subplot to a month-long period spent holed up in a resort, doubly so during the time of Covid-19 — when leaving the hotel, or inviting someone inside, is bound to cause a national stir (see: Chile).
