Abby Wambach’s Goal Against Brazil In 2011 Was The Best In U.S. Soccer History And You Can’t Convince Me Otherwise

The U.S. women’s national team has a remarkable record of reaching the semifinals in every Women’s World Cup. It’s a major reason why we often refer to the USWNT as the greatest sports team of all time. But the road to the final four hasn’t always been easy, and in 2011, the USWNT came closer than ever to an early exit. Only a stunning late Abby Wambach goal vs Brazil — I’d argue the greatest goal in U.S. soccer history — saved the Americans from a quarterfinal exit. 

Santiago Solari Y Su Buena Adaptación A La Liga MX

El América no ganó ningún trofeo en el 2020 y los directivos decidieron desprenderse de Miguel Herrera antes del inicio del torneo Guardianes 2021. En enero, Santiago Solari fue nombrado como el nuevo técnico del equipo y está demostrando que los entrenadores extranjeros pueden adaptarse rápidamente a la Liga MX.

Toluca Mantiene El Liderato En México Tras Seis Jornadas

El Toluca del técnico argentino Hernán Cristante lidera el torneo Clausura 2021 del fútbol mexicano, al finalizar este miércoles la sexta jornada.

Con un gol del argentino Pedro Alexis Canelo, líder de los anotadores, los Diablos propiciaron a Pumas su tercer revés en cuatro partidos y se consolidaron en el primer lugar con cuatro triunfos, un empate, una derrota. En total son 13 puntos, los mismos que el América, pero con mejor diferencia de goles.

People Tend To Forget That Landon Donovan Was Fun As Hell With Everton

Christian Pulisic is better than Landon Donovan. That’s not my opinion — that’s Landon Donovan’s. At the age of 22, Pulisic has established himself at Chelsea. Donovan, at 22, was experiencing one of his least productive MLS seasons with an average San Jose Earthquakes team.

Oribe Peralta Ya No Es El Mismo: La Sequía Goleadora Del Delantero Mexicano

El delantero de las Chivas de Guadalajara, Oribe Peralta, ha estado muy lejos del nivel que alguna vez demostró con el América, pues sus números lo colocan en una muy mala posición para ser la solución en el ataque del Rebaño Sagrado.

Oribe no anota un gol desde el 31 de enero del 2020 cuando lo hizo desde el punto penal ante el Atlético de San Luis. Desde ese momento, suma más de un año sin marcar con su actual equipo.

I Finally Understand The FIFA Hate — After 20+ Years, I Might Never Go Back

I’ve been playing FIFA video games regularly for over 25 years. I’m not sure I’ll ever play again.

This year, for the first time, I focused my FIFA playing on the FIFA Ultimate Team mode. I’ve always loved CCGs and after a few years of dabbling in FUT I finally jumped in and became hooked

Footballers Born In The Wrong Generation

With soccer tactics constantly changing, certain types of players are not always accommodated.

Roles like the libero, trequartista, striker partnerships and burly center backs have become, or are quickly becoming, outdated in modern football. Other roles like ball-playing goalkeepers, false nines and wingers that cut inside onto their stronger foot have become very trendy.

This often leaves current players wishing they had played in a previous decade and former players wishing their career had started a little later. Ah, what could have been.

These Days, Super Bowl Sunday Is About Football, Just Not American Football

I’ll be honest: I actually get excited for the Super Bowl. I couldn’t care less about who is playing or even who wins; professional American football is for a different type of human. But give me an excuse to eat nachos, drink beer and ironically celebrate the grotesque capitalist society we’ve created and I’m all in. So when it comes to sports on that one special Sunday, it’s soccer or nothing. Fortunately, there’s more than enough soccer on Super Bowl Sunday to fill my appetite.
