Injuries form a brutal reality of football that every player hopes to avoid as much as possible but for Arsenal's Abou Diaby, a background plagued by injuries is now only powering a redemption mission.

The 26-year old Diaby has featured minimally for the Gunners over the last two seasons and recently admitted that an extended period on the sidelines sometimes led him to the shocking lows of depression.

3rd Degree at related • 0 views

When FC Dallas hosts Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Saturday night at FC Dallas Stadium, it won't exactly be their first taste of facing the second-year member of Major League Soccer. After all, FCD has faced the Whitecaps twice already in 2012, falling 1-0 at BC Place back earlier in the season. But Dallas did exact a bit of revenge in the last meeting, blanking Vancouver 2-0 to split their two trips at BC Place for the year.

Only one week after dropping a 2-0 decision to the Houston Dynamo, the Red Bulls had a chance at revenge as they played host to the Dynamo on Friday night.

The Portland Timbers were trying to exact some revenge against Chivas USA, a team they had yet to beat during the 2012 season. After playing just 12 days ago in California, the two sides had some idea about how to attack each other, but it was a goalkeeping miscue that allowed Chivas USA to score a goal in the second half.

On a night when Vancouver Whitecaps rookie Darren Mattocks served notice that he has every intention of being the MLS Rookie of the Year this season, it was a seasoned veteran who stole the show late.

Terry Dunfield punished the team that traded him away a year ago, scoring a stoppage-time winner to give Toronto FC a 3-2 victory over the Whitecaps at BMO Field on Wednesday.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic couldn’t score on Joe Hart, so he drank his water instead

Dirty Tackle at related • 3 views

Football disobeyed the mighty will of Zlatan Ibrahimovic as England beat Sweden 3-2. Zlatan scored exactly none of the match's five goals -- though he did set up Sweden's first with his levitation kick (see below) -- and his frustration only grew throughout the match. As Sweden fought back to take the lead in the second half before eventually losing it again, the primary target of Zlatan's fury was England keeper Joe Hart.

KC topped the Philadelphia Union 2-0, on the road to advance to the final in the 99th running of the competition. Goals by Jacob Peterson and Graham Zusi helped Sporting KC grab the win over the Union in a bit of "revenge" from the last time the two clubs met and Philadelphia won 4-0.

Well then... Revenge is a dish best served cold and the way in which the US defeated Ghana qualifies as sub-zero. Clint Dempsey's 30th secondopener created a "Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf" scenario for another 82 minutes with the Black Stars huffing and puffing to punch Tim Howard's goal, all to no avail.

It's that time again folks. Fire gamedays are always fun, but it's even better when we are facing the Crew.

Three straight losses against beatable clubs (including the U.S. Open Cup defeat to a USL team) does not do wonders for confidence. Both the Chicago Fire squad and fans had to feel pretty low heading into the international break. Fortunately, the squad found motivation during the two weeks off, and they came out with their best performance of the season, and arguably, their best performance in the last two years.

1. Italy owe Spain one. It's not often they can counter the ultra-defensive sterotypes by saying: 'Well the other team didn't even have a striker on the pitch.' 2. Vicente Del Bosque brought Fernando Torres on for a cameo performance to demonstrate why he had preferred to start the match with six midfielders.
