Tim Howard's Broken Back Has Huge World Cup And Premier League…

Eleven days ago, Everton FC and US Men's National Team goalkeeper Tim Howard fractured two bones in his back in an FA Cup win against Oldham Athletic. He's expected to be out for about a month.

Turkish Soccer Fans, Banned From Stadium, Manage To Launch Flares Onto …

Porto's Nicolás Otamendi Suffered Friendly Fire To The Face In Today's…

If the first leg of the Porto-Manchester City Europa League round featured insult, then it figures the return trip to Manchester would feature injury—and this is a nasty one. Porto defender Nicolás Otamendi took a boot to the face in what appears to be a lost cause, as an early (first minute!) Man City goal by Sergio… » 2/22/12 2:05pm 2/22/12 2:05pm
