Las coincidencias entre el Apertura 2013 y el Apertura 2022 que ilusionan al América

El Toluca venció al América en el primer partido de dos de la primera llave de semifinales de la liguilla del fútbol mexicano. Con un resultado de 2-1, los choriceros llevarán una ventaja mínima al Estadio Azteca, pues un gol le bastaría a las Águilas para empatar el global y ganar la serie gracias a su mejor posición en la tabla general de la fase regular.

Aunque la simple tarea de ganar por la mínima suena factible para el superlíder del torneo, hay un antecedente entre estos dos equipos que ilusiona aún más a los azulcrema de cara al partido del proximo sábado.

Championship match delayed for second week in a row due to improperly sized goals

If I had a nickel for every time an EFL Championship match had a goal that was too big, I'd have two nickels — which isn't a lot, but it's weird it's happened twice.

For the second weekend in a row, a Championship match had a delayed start as one goal was larger than the other, again by two inches. This time, the inconsistency occurred in Kingston upon Hull, where Hull City hosted Birmingham City. Referee Leigh Doughty noticed the issue during his pre-match check.

American starlet Gabriel Slonina set to join Chelsea in training for the first time

America's most promising goalkeeping prospect is officially heading abroad, as Gabriel Slonina is set to begin a 13-day training spell with Chelsea.

The youngest signing in Chicago Fire history and the youngest starting keeper in MLS history, Slonina became Chicago's most expensive player ever on Aug. 2 when he joined Chelsea for a $15 million fee. The keeper was then loaned back to the Fire for the remainder of the MLS season.

¿Tocó fondo Fútbol Picante? La burda e infantil burla de Álvaro Morales a Jorge Pietrasanta

No es un misterio que Álvaro Morales es una de las figuras más controversiales del fútbol mexicano. En tiempos de engagement en redes sociales, el comentarista seguro que le da a ESPN una buena cuota de presencia online con su perfil arrogante e incesantes troleos. Sin embargo, poco a poco los espectadores comienzan a preguntarse si la cadena televisiva tiene límite ante las actitudes cada vez menos profesionales del periodista.

007 scored a surreal backflip penalty against a team that just hired rapper 6ix9ine as a goalkeeper

Searching for the highlight of the day, I stumble up with a magnificent backflip penalty scored by Russian-Armenian player Norik Avdalyan, where the acrobatics involved in the maneuver are just stunning.

However, I soon discovered the story had more meat than I thought.

First, we have to talk about the goal.

Brothers like no other: Siblings who played for different national teams

If you've ever found yourself watching a Stoke City match, you probably noticed the towering Harry Souttar. At 6-6, Souttar is a large lad even for an EFL Championship center back. Harry's brother, John, is also a notable defender who features for Rangers and the Scottish national team. 

But while John is a Scottish national, Harry — also an Aberdeen native — represents Australia (his mother's native land) when the international breaks come around.

The story behind the guy who got injured after performing Cristiano Ronaldo's SIU celebration

If you are in the soccer hamster wheel that lives on Twitter, you probably have stumbled across a video of a random guy scoring a goal in a five-a-side game and then getting injured after performing the iconic Cristiano Ronaldo SIU celebration.

In the last few days, the clip has accumulated millions and millions of views on social media, but little is known about the person who got injured or how serious the injury was.

First, you should know that the video is not new but from last March. 

TIL: House of the Dragon star and Erling Haaland look-a-like could have been a soccer player

While I watched all Game of Thrones seasons, HBO's prequel House of the Dragon hasn't piqued my interest yet. It doesn't mean that I'm oblivious about the show. I know, for example, who Daemon Targaryen is. 

Yeah, the guy who Manchester City players think has a resemblance with Erling Haaland.  

In search of an equalizer — The best heading threats at the World Cup

It's the 88th minute of a World Cup knockout stage game. Your country is clinging to a 1-0 lead and the pressure is mounting. After an extended period of play in your defensive third, the ball goes out for a corner kick.

You can finally take a breath, but who is this sauntering forward into the penalty area? It's the 6-6 center back who has barely left his half all game. His sizeable forehead and broad shoulders stand above the scrum forming in the 18. A pit grows in your stomach as you can almost see the scoreboard saying "1-1."

Messi has a new nickname - Why are his teammates calling him La Comadreja (The Weasel)?

La Pulga (The Flea), El Enano (The Dwarf), Messías (The Messiah) and The G.O.A.T are some of the nicknames people use to talk about the incomparable Lionel Messi. Quite an array of options to which we have to add one more: La Comadreja (The Weasel).
