The U.S. men’s national team lost to Trinidad and Tobago in its final qualifying game last month, and won’t play in the World Cup for the first time since 1986. But the U.S. won’t be the only big country missing out on Russia 2018.
Sepp Blatter may have been ousted from the corrupt and labyrinthine bureaucracy he constructed out of the billions of dollars that FIFA funnels in from the world’s love of soccer, but lest you worry that the organization isn’t as perplexingly, exasperatingly stupid as before, we have the case of Liverpool, the…
Venezuelan youth international and Florida State student Deyna Castellanos is really good at kicking the ball. She proved as much during an U-17 World Cup match against Cameroon, when she scored a game-winner deep into stoppage time, immediately off of the kick-off following Cameroon’s equalizer:
This is one of those goal highlights where I couldn’t care less about what the scorer—in this case, France’s Olivier Giroud, who finished the play with a nice little volley—does. The only thing I’m here for is this spectacular long-range cross by Paul Pogba. It’s unreal.

Mexico played Cameroon today in what was expected to be a fun, attacking match. Neither team disappointed.
Cameroon are Africa's darlings and have qualified for the World Cup seven times, more than any other nation on their continent. This year, they'll be sending a familiar squad of hardened veterans with some young upstarts sprinkled in to Brazil. But this summer is also different, because it'll likely be the last time…
It's international friendly season, as teams either get their final tune-ups before heading to Brazil for the World Cup or regroup to make a run at qualifying for 2018. Macedonia took on Cameroon yesterday in Austria, but ran into a bit of trouble before the match even started.
We told you last week about the seven Olympic athletes from Cameroon—five boxers, a swimmer, a soccer goalie—who went missing from the Olympic village in London.
