How The Women's World Cup Works: A Guide For Everyone

In many ways, the Women’s World Cup is a lot like its male counterpart. In many ways, it isn’t. So with the tournament set to arrive this summer in France, we thought we’d explain how the Women's World Cup works in 2019.

The men’s World Cup has been around since 1930, but the women’s World Cup didn’t start until 1991. The men’s World Cup has 32 teams, the women’s just 24. The U.S. sucks at the men’s World Cup; the U.S. dominates at the Women’s World Cup.

International All-Stars: The Ultimate Better For Country Than For Club XI

Over the weekend I found myself watching a meaningless friendly between England and Switzerland, two countries that already qualified for the 2022 World Cup.

I considered turning the game off, but I found myself mesmerized by Swiss winger Xherdan Shaqiri, who continuously danced around English defenders, played inch-perfect passes and was in general an attacking menace. One of those delightful balls even assisted Switzerland's only goal.

Here’s How The USMNT Ended Up In Its World Cup Pot For The Draw

Editor’s Note: This story on what pot is USMNT in for World Cup 2022 draw has been updated on March 31 to reflect the latest data.

Heading into the final week of World Cup qualifying before the all-important World Cup draw, the USMNT had a chance to play its way into the coveted Pot 1. Because of its results — and others around the world — the U.S. will not be in Pot 1. But the Americans did just enough to qualify for the World Cup, and now they can look forward to being placed in Pot 2 for the World Cup draw on Friday, April 1. 

Overwhelmed By Opposition, Gianni Infantino Says FIFA Never Proposed A Biennial World Cup

DOHA - Gianni Infantino has stepped sharply back from hotly contested plans for a biennial World Cup, telling world soccer’s leadership that FIFA had never proposed such an idea.

The FIFA president has been under fire for the past year, particularly in Europe, for proposals to increase the frequency of the global extravaganza from every four years, to every two.

After USMNT Clinches World Cup Berth, Here's What We Need To Advance In Qatar

The USMNT is back in the World Cup after great performances against Mexico and Panama earned the nation automatic qualification to Qatar. Not much more can be said about Wednesday night's loss in Costa Rica because at this point, all the United States does is lose in Costa Rica, even if the plan to lay the qualifying ghosts to rest with a historic win actually resulted in a worse margin of defeat than in Trinidad. 

USMNT Qualifies For World Cup For First Time In 3,123 Days — Here’s How Different The World Looked

The United States men’s national team punched its ticket for 2022 World Cup in Qatar — with a rather disappointing 2-0 loss to Costa Rica — on Wednesday for the first time since 2013. Just under a decade has passed since the last time USA qualified for World Cup.

Los Hechizos Del Brujo Antuna Ponen A México En El Mundial 2022

Se acabó el sufrimiento. México hizo la tarea y luego de vencer 2-0 a El Salvador en el Estadio Azteca consiguió su soñado boleto a Catar 2022.

Sin volverse locos ni perder la cabeza, hay que reconocer que el Tri jugó mucho mejor de lo que venía haciéndolo, con más chispa en la generación de juego y mejor suerte frente al arco rival. Ayudó la actitud temerosa de La Selecta, pero también se debe destacar la fantástica actuación de Uriel Antuna.

Let’s Be Honest, Gregg Berhalter Played World Cup Qualifying Almost Perfectly

Since he was hired in 2018, a large section of USMNT supporters have criticized every possible move made by Gregg Berhalter. Whether it was roster selections, tactical decisions or the way he likes to wear nice shoes, some fans always found something wrong with the coach. 

Now that the U.S. has qualified for the 2022 World Cup, I think it’s clear Berhalter coached the qualifying campaign just about as perfectly as any American could reasonably ask for.
