that guy should really shave his head again
Yep. Much like Patrick Vieira, who was far less intimidating with this look:
Anyone plans to go to the World Cup in Brazil?
WTF is everybody?
Watching soccer and taking about it online is so 2012/13 didn't anyone tell you?
So Balotelli starts the streak again. 1 straight PK converted.
Nobody told me!
Juve still struggle in Europe...what gong show defending on both goals.
Wow! "Gretzky" pulls one out of the fire with two in the last five minutes.
Huge win for the Caps last night and historic for Kekuta Manneh being the youngest player to net three goals in MLS history.
UK papers even picked up on it, reminding people that three clubs have scouted this kid fairly recently.
Reports coming out of Spain that Bale has some sort of spinal injury that has prevented him from playing. Welcome to Kaká part deux.
Via the Telegraph: Madrid’s statement clarified the nature of Bale’s back problem. It read: “To claim that the player has a slipped disc on the L5-S1 vertebrae and a bulge on two others, is completely false. The player does not have a slipped disc. He has a small chronic disc bulge, which is extremely common among football players and by no means prevents him from carrying out his professional activity normally.”
Got to love the Spanish press, especially Marca.
Well Mexico owe the USMT a huge debt of gratitude after they saved their sorry asses. Feel terrible for Panama but they did it to themselves considering you are at home and the Americans did not have their best squad out there.
No sure thing for Mexico against New Zealand though. In fact I may just put a few bucks on the All Whites.
I was a little torn on this game. It's hard not to pull for the underdog, but the World Cup would be missing something without Mexico.
Also, why is the U.S. team referred to as the USMNT? Do any other countries do this? I've never heard of the NZMNT. Is the U.S. nickname really the Mutant Ninja Turtles?
The U.S. isn't a major soccer country in terms of its passion for the game compared to other countries, so maybe that's something contributing to the cold, utilitarian and purely descriptive name.
