Let's get one thing out of the way first: Arjen Robben blatantly took a dive in the 92nd minute of today's round of 16 matchup between Mexico and the Netherlands. The dive was rewarded with a penalty, which Klaus Jan Huntelaar coverted, and Mexico lost the game as a result. Robben is a cheater who...

Soccer Source at related • 0 views
Hard to believe the first round of games of the 2014 World Cup are already over. But each team has played once, and that gives us an excellent opportunity to draw a number of way too premature conclusions, way too early. Take these with a grain of salt, remembering that the road to World Cup...

As you may have heard, Juergen Klinsmann has been in the news for reasons other than cutting Landon Donovan from the U.S. Men's National Team World Cup roster. (A decision we supported, by the way). We are referring here to comments made by der Nationalcoach to the New York Times, that the U.S....

Can the 2014 World Cup break the following patterns?

Soccer Source at related • 0 views
Patterns are made to be broken. It wasn't that long ago that anybody but old white guys with Anglican or Scotch-Irish names could become president of the United States. Tech stocks were supposed to go up forever, until they didn't. Then real estate was, until it didn't. Americans would never watch...

Yes, the U.S. Can Advance From its World Cup Group

Soccer Source at related • 0 views
As you may have heard, the U.S. Men's National Team was drawn into a group with Germany, Portugal and Ghana today for this summer's World Cup in Brazil.

Soccer Source at related • 0 views
After losing in Jamaica last night, the U.S. Men's National Team is now in very real danger of crashing out of World Cup qualifying with an embarrassing thud. The scenario, once unthinkable, is now entirely plausible if the U.S. fails to win its remaining home matches, against Jamaica next week...
