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.

All was fine and well between Branislav Ivanovic and Luis Suarez in the prematch handshake; their first since the Uruguayan began nibbling on Ivanovic during the spring. So that was nice. Bygones, etc. But then during the match, Ivanovic went about doing his job and accidentally kicked Luis in the ...
Every club should do one of the little videos, though for many, it would be significantly more humble and the graphics would be scribbled on scrap paper littered about the club offices. Barcelona's numbers look infinitely more impressive than anyone else's, though the number of beverages sold seems a bit ...
This little girl is a Benfica fan. Under the Christmas tree, her family placed a cruel, cruel joke in the form of a Porto shirt. Her reaction is priceless and leads to the idea that she'll be an excellent disciplinarian as a mother. Thankfully, her family was just playing a ...
If you happened upon Andres Iniesta in a store and didn't know who he was, would you think of him to be one of the world's finest athletes, even for a second? Probably not. In fact of all footballers, he seems closest to the picture of an average man. Sony ...
Lists compiling the top players of the world are typically best left ignored. Not necessarily on the whole, if often, but because there's that one guy in that one slot who just..."Oh my god. Don't even get me started." One of the better lists came in the form of last ...
Suppose it's never too early for some trash talk, though six months ahead of time is quite preemptive. Cristal, a beer of Chile, has sent a frightening message to the Netherlands ahead of their match in the Group of Death in Brazil. Nude girl in a beer commercial quota hit, ...
