  1. That clip of Marta addressing the younger generations of players was very moving. Worth googling for yourself.

  2. Blake the only Union All Star

    • OneManWolfpack says:

      I think Ilsinho would be fun to watch in the All Star game setting and he is getting a lot of pub this season, with the super-sub stuff… kind of a shame he won’t be there. But no one else making it (other than Blake), really doesn’t bother me much

  3. Andy Muenz says:

    Cameroon’s actions on the field weren’t great but England’s coach had no business making the comments that he made. He should be worrying about his own team and let others worry about the other team.
    Trinidad and Tobago may have been the team to officially knock the US out of the 2018 World Cup but the real reason the US didn’t make it was losing at home to Costa Rica and Mexico.
