Poor, poor, 18-year-old Mile Svilar made his debut for Benfica today in a game against one of the scariest teams in England. He became the youngest-ever Champions League keeper in the process, but more to the point, he made himself a target for Manchester United’s more experienced scorers.

Newcastle United played Burton Albion yesterday in a match noteworthy only for one particularly galling error made by head referee Keith Stroud. These Sky Sports pundits discussing the mistake on air were just as bemused by the incident as the moment called for.
After trailing Northwestern for much of the afternoon, Vanderbilt looked as if they were going to do the nation a favor by coming from behind to knock the Wildcats out of their first-ever tournament in the first round. But, alas, it wasn’t to be. Vanderbilt went up by one point with just 17 seconds left—and then…

Mets outfielder Alejandro de Aza did nearly everything wrong tonight in the tenth inning of New York’s scoreless tie against the Braves: he botched the bunt, didn’t run it out, and then slid into first base—headfirst, even. Good job, good effort!
Transitioning from a bunch of Champions League games and a cup final to a relatively placid friendly against Malta can be a shock to the system. Rarely, however, does it result in such a hilarious, dumb own goal, like the one Bayern Munich star David Alaba scored on his own team this afternoon.

Kirk Cousins responded to a week of positive coverage, for once, by committing a huge blunder. His boner cost Washington a chance to get points; by inexplicably taking a knee with six seconds remaining, time ran out on the half—denying the Skins a shot at a quick touchdown and even the subsequent field goal…
Steve Clark got way too casual with this backwards pass from Wil Trapp and gifted Diego Valeri and the Portland Timbers a goal to start MLS Cup. At 27 seconds, this is easily the fastest goal in MLS Cup history.
