Playing Bournemouth, Chelsea is already well on their way to get that 12th in a row to potentially extend their Premier League lead. After this goal, we'd vote for Pedro.

Once again it was an ugly first half for the USMNT. When you go into Costa Rica you know the conditions aren’t going to be great, and though this isn’t the old Saprissa Stadium, the field conditions left a lot to be desired. Players were slipping left and right in the first half for the […]
Out of all the great action in the Champions League, the best came at the end of the Ludogorets/Arsenal game. After setting up Arsenal’s first goal, Mesut Ozil’s greatest masterpiece was an 88th minute strike that took a possible upset away from the Bulgarian champs and sealed Arsenal’s place in the Champions League Knockout Stage.

Christian Pulisic has received many superlatives from just about everyone in the United States, in Germany and in other places in the world.

Call it the yips, call it a problem, call it whatever you like but Manchester City are struggling from the penalty spot this season.

In theory, Stoke City should have walked out of Old Trafford having lost 4-0. Manchester United entered the match having scored four goals against the champions Leicester City and Stoke have been among the worst teams in the league. But things never seem to work out like that.

After Swansea scored off an early corner kick, Liverpool seemed to struggle in the first half.

Despite Borussia Dortmund being in control for the first 17 minutes, it was Real Madrid who scored first. After what seemed to be a clear handball that wasn’t called, Cristiano Ronaldo fired a fast shot toward the far post to give Real the lead. All better!
A free kick that’s kicked on the ground is very rare. Like a panenka on a penalty kick, it looks beautiful when it’s done right and looks horrific if it doesn’t.
