I genuinely don’t understand the visceral hatred toward the 2023 Women’s World Cup on social media

The 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand is only seven months away from kicking off. For the first time in history the tournament is expanding to 32 teams meaning the format will be identical to the men’s most recent edition.

A Mexican TV reporter covering the 2022 World Cup has become viral after a funny slip of the tongue involving influencer and former adult entertainer Mia Khalifa.

El llanto de Vanessa Huppenkothen tras la eliminación de México

Antes del Mundial, la opinión generalizada en la afición era que México se devolvería a casa sin poder pasar la fase de grupos. Y si bien la realidad cumplió con ese pesimismo, esto no evitó que la gente se sintiera con el corazón roto una vez sellada la eliminación.

Imagine you are kneeling to propose to your girlfriend and suddenly, a security guard comes into the scene and pushes her aggressively, ruining the romantic mood.

USMNT goalkeeper power rankings: Steffen's mistakes continue to compound

In three weeks, the USMNT begins its World Cup campaign in Qatar. Much is still to be decided for the final roster — especially at the goalkeeper position.

During the September international break (with Zack Steffen omitted as a precautionary measure as he recovered from injury), Matt Turner started against Japan and Saudi Arabia. Turner had a strong showing against Japan, and was arguably the top American performer that day, before having little to do in a dull match versus the Saudis in Spain.

Born in the Northeast: the forgotten history of soccer-specific stadiums in the U.S.

In 1862, a group known as the Oneida Football Club gathered at Boston Common for a historic function: the first recorded soccer match on American soil. Their match, which predated the formation of the English Football Association by a year, was a sign of things to come for soccer in the region.

The Northeastern United States became a hotbed for American soccer in the early 1900s, and the game thrived among the communities of European immigrants that populated the burgeoning industrial centers of the eastern seaboard.
