Call this arrogant and strange for a team that wins once in a blue moon, but I knew we’d win this one. Paraguay seem to mythically fear our mountains as much as the Bolivians once mythically feared their barren Chaco plain in the 1930s (more…)

Socrates, as many of us know, was a Brazilian soccer player who played for the ill-fated Brazilian teams of the 1980s. He had long curly hair and a Jesus-esque beard. He was a qualified doctor who smoked a pack a day throughout his playing career.
He was a left-wing activist in a country that at the time was ruled by a ... [read more]
I never doubted him. (more…)

Pure craziness. All four teams who won these nutty quarter-finals did so overwhelmingly against the run of play, but then that’s how incredible upsets work. Can you begrudge anyone, at a time like this? This tournament is something ripped straight from my dreams, similar to the lovely, bizarre 2004 Champions League (which featured a Monaco vs. Porto final).

God knows I hated them for years. I considered them the Italy of South America, the team for which no trick was too underhanded for them to use to succeed. Diving to earn penalties were my main issue, but their substandard play never matched the results that crappy play seemed to deserve. They also had the knack of eliminating my ... [read more]

Découvrez le « Menu Paris Saint-Germain » avec notre Fournisseur Officiel McDonald’s IDF http://t.co/SnrQMD5Pre pic.twitter.com/M6kyopSUrL— PSG Officiel (@PSG_inside) December 5, 2013 Most of the jokes centering upon McDonald's sneaking into the football arena involve American-owned clubs or those employing Adriano or other once-iconic now-tubby superstars. But it's PSG who would like ...
The video is well over a month old, but the world can be forgiven for overlooking the Finnish third division, right? Right. Thankfully, the video also provides running commentary as well as a wonderfully obstructed viewpoint from the stands. And if you pay attention, you'll notice that it's not quite the ...
If this happened in America, this child would rebel by becoming an Ajax fan and they'd film an entire reality show based whlly upon the family dysfunction as a result. As it stands, however, this kid could very well grow up to become this kid. Let's hope there's a ...
Tis the season, which means plenty of footballers getting into the spirit on YouTube - and of all clubs, it always seems as though Manchester City is at the forefront of the holidays. Maybe because they can afford the most gifts? Who knows. John Guidetti is definitely...embracing the spirit. That's being ...
A rehearsal was held for the 2014 World Cup draw taking part on Friday in Bahia, which meant a simulated draw was whipped out of the bowls or hats or whatever the hell they'll use. Judging by that draft draw, there are a lot of federations which won't be sleeping ...
The spate of solid World Cup commercials has begun. Next up is Paolo Rossi's spot for VISA, taking him back to Brazil to remind them of the terror he unleashed in 1982 with a hat trick in Spain. Presumably the next one is a very resigned Roberto Baggio taking heat ...
Adidas launched the official ball for the 2014 World Cup, called the brazuca. Which sounds vaguely like something Kramer and Frank Costanza would've whipped up. They had models and dubstep but not a soul who thought to change the name to something which sounds less like a brassiere for the ...
There has to be someone out there knowing the market for this. Given that it's the global game and not everyone has a global understanding of languages, hacked pronunciations are the norm. Someone should take a cue from Cesar Azpilicueta and get all footballers to pronounce their own names on ...
