Neymar is absolutely brilliant. That is now undebatable. His latest goal against Spain to end the first half of the Confederations Cup shows exactly why he's already one of the best players in the world.
So, Brazil's not fucking around.
Wow. That was a pretty good game, right? The Confederations Cup consolation match between Italy and Uruguay was a meaningless game in a meaningless tournament, and it wasn't supposed to do anything more than whet our appetite ahead of tonight's final between Brazil and Spain. Along the way, it turned out to be the…
Brazil and Spain kick off in the Confederations Cup final at 6 p.m. You know what that means.
This match is insane. Uruguay trailed Italy 2-1 following a beautiful Alessandro Diamanti goal in the 73rd minute, but Edinson Cavani had the opportunity to equalize five short minutes later from another free kick. The striker did not disappoint.
Italy is taking on Uruguay in the Confederations Cup third-place match, and so far, the first half has been absolutely hectic. Both sides are getting forward with some of the world's best strikers running at tired defenders, and there have been plenty of chances. So it's strange that the first goal came on an…
The Confederations Cup doesn't really matter. The games are scrimmages, and tomorrow's result between Brazil and Spain will have no bearing whatsoever on the World Cup. The tournament is just a dry run to make sure Brazil's stadiums and services will be able to handle next year's influx of fans. What does matter,…
Today, Spain played Italy in the semifinal of the Confederations Cup. It was a great game, likely the best of the tournament, because for the first time in years, Spain looked vulnerable. Italy countered Spain's dominance in possession by countering quickly when they won the ball, attacking through wing play or…
This Confederations Cup has shown the world what Neymar brings to the table—and why Barça was willing to spend $74 million for his contract rights. The star Brazilian striker was back at it today, setting up a late winner after a bit of injured-opponent taunting.
Last month, it was announced that Brazilian soccer star Neymar was sold to FC Barcelona. We were excited, because the 21-year-old is the best and most hyped prospect in the world, and might already be the best player on the planet outside of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
A great strike from one of the best ever in his 100th career appearance. What else needs to be said?
The Confederations Cup kicked off today in Brazil, and the hosts made a statement early as Neymar pounded in a long-distance volley to score on Japan only three minutes into the match.
Goal line technology will be used in soccer will be used for the first time at this year's Confederations Cup, which starts today. There's long been a debate in soccer whether the sport should introduce more technology in its matches, especially when it comes to goal line technology. Soccer's a free-flowing game with…
Does anyone know when the next USA soccer game is? Because unless it's this Wednesday*, I'm guessing our nation may have trouble parlaying the magical Confederations Cup showing into a nationwide love affair with the sport.
Bob Bradley must be slightly busy right now trying to prepare his team to pull off another upset of a superior squad. Toilet-papering one of Brazil's finest is probably a strategy he hasn't considered.
