Sunday’s meeting between Arsenal and Wolves at the Emirates was brought to a halt in the fifth minute after an ugly clash of heads between David Luiz and Raúl Jiménez off a Willian corner kick.

Diego Lainez Is A Cautionary Tale For USMNT Supporters

Mention Diego Lainez to USMNT supporters and they’ll immediately think of Matt Miazga’s relentless trolling of the diminutive winger back in September of 2018. What they won’t recall is that the then 18-year-old was the best player on the field in Nashville, form which he carried over into the Liga MX Apertura playoffs and a $14 million transfer to Real Betis.

The Mexican national team is living an excellent moment under the Argentinean coach Gerardo Martino. He has an excellent record of 18 victories, two draws and one defeat (against Argentina), 56 goals scored and 21 goals against.

Ochoa, Jiménez And Chucky Guide Mexico Through The Fog And Over Japan

As the rain and mist rolled into Liebenauer Stadium in Graz, Austria on Tuesday, it was Mexico that moved like the onryō ("vengeful spirits") that originated in their opponent’s homeland before being proliferated around the world through the J-Horror genre.

An opening 20 minutes of Japan superiority was beat back single-handedly by Guillermo Ochoa, but the rhythm of the game slowly changed in Mexico’s favor and by the time Raúl Jiménez opened the scoring in the 63rd minute, you felt as though it’d been coming for El Tri.

But first, Ochoa.

Mexico’s Insane 3-Goal Blitz In 4 Minutes Ended South Korea

Unlikely Soccer Events That Will Totally Happen By The Time Nevada Finishes Counting Votes

If you haven’t been paying attention to the U.S. election results you either don’t care about the election, live under a rock or are a vote counter in Nevada. How a state that is 99 percent desert is taking so damn long to count votes is beyond anyone. On the bright side the memes have been an endless, beautiful flowing river.

Ajax’s Total Football Put To The Test With Only 17 Players In UCL Squad

In all honesty, we’ve only just begun to see the torrential number of ways in which COVID-19 can disrupt football in a purely sporting sense. 

Major League Soccer’s regular season has been severely disrupted by the pandemic with a logjam of postponed matches that can no longer be completed before the start of the playoffs, forcing qualification to be determined on a points-per-game basis rather than the final standings. 

Gattuso Says Chucky Has ‘Rediscovered Himself’ But Needs To Stop Diving

It’s been a dream start to the campaign for Napoli after a disappointing seventh-place finish last season (apart from the ludicrous fallout of the abandoned Juventus match), and a key to the club’s revival has been the renaissance of Hirving “Chucky” Lozano.
