By: Casey Rhine

Ohhhh El Clásico, where to begin. One of soccer's most heated, yet most deeply cherished rivalries.Few of you readers get to experience El Clasico, in Barcelona, while it's happening. This was my mission on December 23rd and should be your mission on May 6th if you are not lucky enough to go to the game in the Camp Nou.

Houston Dash Took The Champions Of Europe Barcelona To The Wire In Heroic Performance

The Houston Dash was the oddball inclusion the 2021 Women’s International Champions Cup. 

Teams like the Portland Thorns, French powerhouse Lyon and perhaps the most dominant team on the planet, Barcelona, all looked like giants compared to the Dash. 

The 2020 NWSL Challenge Cup champions were heavy underdogs against Barcelona for the third-place match, but holy hell did the Dash give the defending UEFA Champions League winners a run for their money, losing 3-2.

He Won’t Care How It Went In Because Grealish Has Scored His First Manchester City Goal

Jack Grealish bagged his first goal for Manchester City on Saturday against Norwich City.

The goal itself won’t be one that fans will be talking about for years to come. Hell, we probably won’t be talking about it by next week. Grealish won’t care as a huge weight on his shoulders is now gone.

Some eyebrows were raised in the soccer video game community last month when Konami announced some major changes to its Pro Evolution Soccer franchise.

Not only was the franchise renamed to eFootball, but the base version will also be released for free. As time goes on, Konami will then release paid modules that provide access to other game modes — all of which will feature cross-play on its available platforms

Go Home Everyone Else, Copa Libertadores Quarterfinal Has Produced The Goal Of The Year

Matías Zaracho and Atletico Mineiro booted River Plate out of the Copa Libertadores in style Wednesday night. This Zaracho goal vs. River Plate was the opening strike of the game and is one of the best seen in 2021 so far.

When Will My Brain Accept That The Away Goals Rule Doesn’t Exist Anymore?

What a meeting we had in the Champions League playoffs on Wednesday. Portuguese giant Benfica, a two-time winner of the contest, against the Dutch behemoth PSV, winner in 1988. 

How would PSV navigate a trip to the formidable Estádio da Luz in Lisbon? Would Mario Götze orchestrate a vital away goal? Or would Nicolás Otamendi inspire the all-important clean sheet?! My brain whirled and reeled with all sorts of prognostications.

USMNT Striker Power Rankings: Who Deserves To Lead The Line Come World Cup Qualifying?

When it comes to attack-minded players, the USMNT has never been more exciting. Christian Pulisic, Gio Reyna, Weston McKennie, Brenden Aaronson and Konrad de la Fuente are all footballers that bring you to your feet when in possession around goal, but they all share two common traits: (1) they’re not strikers and (2) they’re young.

These are important points because now we’re going to move on to talking about USMNT strikers who, for the most part, are all also fledglings.

Want To Know How Little Olympic Time Macario Got? You Could Finish These Easy Tasks In The Same Time

With the USWNT’s Olympic campaign in the rear-view mirror there’s one topic that was overlooked. Catarina Macario is one of the most exciting young prospects for the USWNT, yet she only saw the field for seven minutes during the Olympics. Thanks, Vlatko.

Macario is a versatile player who can play in the midfield or as forward. Born in São Luís, the 21-year-old had the choice to represent either the USWNT or Brazil. She received her U.S. citizenship on Oct. 8, 2020, and was cleared by FIFA to play for the USWNT in January.
