Inter Closes In On First Title In 11 Years With Matteo Darmian’s Late Winner

MILAN - A rare goal from full back Matteo Darmian earned Inter Milan a 1-0 victory over Cagliari on Sunday, as Antonio Conte's side closed on their first Serie A title in 11 years.

Struggling Cagliari were proving to be a tough nut to crack in the San Siro, with debutant goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario making several fine saves to keep the league leaders at bay.

Reminder: Allan Saint-Maximin Is An Incredibly Good Footballer

BURNLEY - Frenchman Allan Saint-Maximin came off the bench to turn the game around for lowly Newcastle United as they came from behind to earn a vital 2-1 Premier League win at Burnley on Sunday.

Burnley had led through an 18th-minute goal from Czech striker Matěj Vydra and were well on top before substitute Saint-Maximin changed the game inside seven minutes with an assist and a goal.

Melbourne Victory Claims W-League Title With 120th-Minute Olimpico

Melbourne Victory forward Kyra Cooney-Cross scored directly from a corner in the final minute of extra time to help her team beat Sydney FC in the W-League Grand Final on Sunday and be crowned champions of Australia for the second time.

Melbourne created the majority of the chances at Sydney's Kogarah Oval in the latest edition of the "Big Blue" rivalry but needed a last-gasp effort to triumph thanks largely to the heroics of Sydney goalkeeper Jada Whyman.

Trinity Rodman Just Became The Youngest Goal Scorer In NWSL History 5 Minutes Into Her Debut

Trinity Rodman scored her first career NWSL goal in record-breaking fashion, but it wasn’t enough to keep the N.C. Courage from claiming a 3-2 victory over the Washington Spirit on Saturday in the Challenge Cup. 

Sergiño Dest’s Rear End Partially At Fault In Barça’s El Clásico Defeat To Real Madrid

Sergiño Dest became the first American to appear in El Clásico in October. On Saturday he became the first American to score with his butt in El Clásico.

Dest’s rear end accidentally sent a Toni Kroos free kick into the back of the net for what proved to be the winner as Real Madrid edged Barcelona 2-1 on Saturday at a cold, wet and rainy Alfredo Di Stéfano Stadium. 

Zlatan Ibrahimović Shown Straight Red For Dissent

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimović was sent off for dissent as his side earned a 3-1 win at Parma in Serie A on Saturday.

Milan eased into a comfortable two-goal lead at the break thanks to goals from Ante Rebic in the eighth minute — a strike that was brilliantly set up by Ibrahimović — and a fine Franck Kessie finish on the stroke of halftime.

Milan's task became much more difficult just before the hour mark, however, as out of the blue, Ibrahimović was given a straight red card for something he said to the referee, much to the Swede's bemusement.

Late Rapinoe Equalizer Saves USWNT From First Defeat In More Than 2 Years

The USWNT is so dominant in world soccer, some games feel like they’re over before they begin. But that’s never the case when Sweden lines up against the U.S., and we saw Saturday as the USWNT narrowly escaped defeat, salvaging a 1-1 draw with a late Megan Rapinoe penalty in a friendly in Stockholm. 

Captain America’s Flying Again: Christian Pulisic Has First Multi-Goal Game Since 2019

Thomas Tuchel is finally giving Christian Pulisic some playing time and the American is responding. Pulisic scored twice in a rampaging 4-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday, his second straight Premier League appearance with at least one goal. 

DeAndre Yedlin Suffers Scary-Looking Leg Injury; Opponent Doesn’t Even Get A Yellow

DeAndre Yedlin might be second-guessing his decision to play in Turkey right about now. The American fullback has had a rollercoaster start to time at Galatasaray and it took a dip with a gruesome-looking Yedlin injury against Fatih Karagümrük on Saturday.

Four Red Cards In Final 5 Minutes — NWSL Got Wild After Dark On Opening Day

The 2021 NWSL Challenge Cup kicked off with a somewhat drab scoreless draw between the Houston Dash and Chicago Red Stars on Friday night. The second match of the day, played late on the West Coast, had enough action in just the final few minutes to more than make up for it.

The Portland Thorns held off Kansas City 2-1 on Friday at Providence Park, but not until after four red cards were shown in the final five minutes of a wild game that finished after midnight ET.
