Police had to use tear gas to break-up a crowd that gathered outside a restaurant to see new signing Mario Balotelli. AC Milan fans had assembled as their new signing attempted to dine with vice-president Adriano Galliani. The pair ended up dancing in the street with ultras at one point. They were incited to join [.
Canada's players were given a very warm welcome as they arrived in Panama for a World Cup qualifier. The squad were no doubt hoping to settle in for an early night on Monday evening and relax ahead of today's match. Instead they were treated to a street party outside their hotel. The fiesta got into [.
It was 4am on Thursday morning, and nothing was stirring, not even a mouse with the CSKA Moscow
players sleeping soundly in their hotel beds, dreaming sweet dreams in lilting, pastel shades about
merrily trouncing AIK in the Europa League play-off the next day.
There were fireworks both on and off the field for the US Women's National Team who defeated
Colombia 3-0 on Saturday in Glasgow, Scotland. Abby Wambach has called for the Olympic Committee to
review and discipline the Colombian player who "sucker-punched" her during the game. And after the
match Hope Solo went pubic on Twitter [.
Looks uncomfortable doesn't he? Staff Writer Phil Collin takes a brief look at what has become one
of Southern California's most enduring July 4 traditions, the annual Galaxy home game and fireworks
spectacular in Carson. Here's the Union perspective.
In which Boca Juniors find a quick and easy way to rack up a Â£50,000 fireworks bill before so
much as kicking a ball at La Bombanera Â - emerging (with their kids in tow) onto the pitch ahead
of the first leg of the Copa Libertadores Final against Corinthians last week to an
ever-so-slightly OTT display as if they'd already won the bloody thing.
In Shalrie Joseph's return to Foxboro Wednesday night, the New England Revolution gave fans far
more to talk about than just their former captain in a different jersey. After jumping out to a 3-0
lead in the first 21 minutes, the Revolution failed to hold on yet again, surrendering three
straight goals and settling for a draw with Chivas USA.
No team has played more games than the Montreal Impact, and perhaps no team in the Eastern
Conference has surpassed expectations more than the expansion club. Head coach Jesse Marsch and
company continued their impressive summer form, as they defeated the New England Revolution at
Gillette Stadium, 1-0, on Sunday night.

The fireworks continued for one or two sides, but sadly the magical pixie dust had officially run

The San Jose Earthquakes were the ones making a major statement in Week 17, knocking off the
resurgent Los Angeles Galaxy 4-3 in front of a massive crowd at Stanford Stadium. On a night where
the promise of fireworks helped swell the gate to 50,391. Steven Lenhart opened the scoring for the
Quakes in the 7th minute, with David Beckham equalizing in the 31st.
Cross country trips are never good for MLS teams. At one point last season coastal teams were
completely winless playing on the opposite coast through some amazing amount of games and I started
referring to it as the Coast To Coast Curse. That eventually ended, but those 3,000 mile trips
remain brutal for teams.
SUB WATCH Doubles your Fun this Holiday WeekWelcome back! Hope you enjoyed the
fireworks. When SUB WATCH signed off on Tuesday, we were looking at total substitution minutes
played (smp) by different Red Bullsâ€”particular the current leader, one Victor Palsson.
Surely, Palsson must be a hugely productive player to get so many minutes, right?
When Nicklas Bendtner showed the world his Paddy Power underwear after scoring against Portugal in
Denmark's 3-2 loss at Euro 2012, he probably had no idea how much controversy his seemingly
innocent actions would stir. But it's not actually Bendtner's action that has caused the newest
uproar, it's UEFA's reaction that has fans bewildered.
Croatia fans have cost their national team's federationÂ â‚¬80,000.
UEFA fined Croatia that amount "for the setting-off and throwing of fireworks, and the improper
conduct of supporters (racist chants, racist symbols) at the UEFA EURO 2012 Group C match against
Italy," according to a statement released on Tuesday.
1. Spain delivered the ultimate 'up yours' to us all. After 87 minutes of sniping about their lack
of penetration and subsequent lack of a striker, they literally walked it into the net. 2. The
reigning champions did look precarious at one point. Fortunately, they had Jesus (Navas) to be
While neither of Wednesday's games quite managed to measure up to the fireworks in Warsaw on
Tuesday, what looked to be one of the most interesting days of the group stage heading into the
tournament still delivered its share of intrigue and entertainment, and as a result all four
nations in Group B still have everything to play for come Sunday.
Uefa have hit Russia with a large fine after their fans were found to have caused trouble during
their opening Euro 2012 match against the Czech Republic.
Russian supporters set off fireworks and displayed illicit banners during the Group A clash. Any

the Czech Republic last Friday, UEFA have decided to come down (relatively) hard on the

Shortly before Thursday's Europa League match between PAOK and Rapid Vienna in Greece, the
visiting Rapid fans came out of the stands and launched an attack on the home supporters that made
the Toumbas Stadium resemble a warzone. The Rapid fans launched flares and fireworks into a stand

retaliated with by launching flares and fireworks of their own back down at their aggressors.
Brendan Rodgers takes charge of his first home game as Liverpool manager on Thursday night as his
side defends a 1-0 first leg advantage against FC Gomel in a Europa League qualifier.
Last week's first encounter saw Stewart Downing earn the Reds a deserved victory against last
season's Belarusian Super Cup winners, and quite understandably they're 1/5 favourites to win the
second leg too.
Article by Doak Gips If there was any doubt who is the number one
team in the NASL, there is no doubt anymore. Seriously. The Scorpions stamped that and put it away
this past week. With a defense that is making Scorpions 'keeper Daryl Sattler look like Iker
Casillas, and an offense with the the NASL's leading goal-scorer in Pablo Campos, the Scorpions
look like they plan on demolishing everyone the rest of the way through the league.
