An argument could be made that the United States has produced the best male athletes the sports world has ever seen. From Michael Jordan to Michael Phelps and Tiger Woods to Muhammad Ali, the U.S. has produced top athletes in almost every sport that has ever been played. There seems to be just one sport that Americans have never been able to dominate: the biggest sport in the world, soccer. In the men’s category, the US has won a gold medal or world championship competition for every major sport including basketball, hockey, baseball, tennis, golf, swimming, boxing, gymnastics among others and they have dominated the Olympic medal count in almost every edition of the Olympics. Apart from all of this, the biggest and most important sports leagues in the world are in the US including the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL and PGA Tour.

It may seem odd that a country with such a culture of sports has never succeeded in the most popular sport in the world. A big part of the American population argues that soccer is a boring sport because of the low amount of goals scored in games when compared to any other major sport. The truth is that since the 1994 world cup, which was hosted in American soil for the first time, and the creation of the Major League Soccer in 1993 soccer has been growing in a very big way. The US soccer federation seemed to be on the right track to make soccer a major sport. More and more kids across the country started to play the sport and it is now starting to become part of the American culture, teams were investing large amounts of money in building their stadiums and developing players, and they also invested in developing future talents in every teams youth academy.

So what is the problem? The problem is that soccer is not a sport for just any kind of athlete. When talking about how good a player is in American culture, the experts like to talk about how high the player is, or how tall he is, how strong he is and how fast he can be. These are all categories that can certainly predict how good of an athlete a person can be in any major contact sport like basketball or football and so-called experts in US soccer have tried to use these categories to identify future prospects, the biggest mistake they can make. In the MLS combine held every year, potential MLS players are put through a set of tests that are supposed to showcase their ability. There is a Speed test consisting of a 30-meter dash, an Agility test where their times on a 5-10-5 shuffle are measured and then a Power test that includes a measurement of their vertical jump. What people need to understand is that these tests can mount up to mean absolutely nothing at all. Soccer is an art of its own and it can’t be reduced to these four categories. There is so much more to soccer than what these four number tests try to show. One of the best players of this generation, Andrea Pirlo, would probably be on the bottom of the table in all three of these categories. Pirlo is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds, he was never fast, never jumped high and was not the most agile player but he was an artist with the ball and possessed the highest level of talent one can find. The same could be said about Lionel Messi, arguably the best soccer player ever to play the game.

Although Messi is indeed very quick and agile, he is measured at 5 feet 7 inches and he got there thanks to a growth hormone treatment that was supplied to him by FC Barcelona in order for him to be able to grow. When Messi was fifteen years old he was measured at just under 5 feet 4 inches and weighed 136 pounds. It is sad but true that if Leo Messi would have been born and developed in the US, he would have probably never made it to anything because no team in America would have given him a chance. Scouts and coaches in the youth systems across the country need to focus more on attracting raw talent to develop it rather than tall, strong and fast athletes into their academies if they want to change the narrative and become a leader in the only sport they have not been able to conquer.

Soccer is easily one of the most widely played youth sports in America right now, and with the economy the way it is, purchasing equipment might be a little more financially challenging than it was before. The equipment needed for a game of soccer is really not all that much: a ball, shoes, shin-guards, and a goal. What is the most expensive? The goal. Below are a few steps for building a cost effective goal that can be used at home for practice or on a field for a game.

Materials needed (most if not all of these can be purchased at your local hardware store): First, you need a post hole digger to dig holes deep enough to place your goal-posts in. Next, you will need two 4×4 vertical bars and one 2×4 cross bar. Other miscellaneous materials that would be helpful include: a staple gun, tape measure, nails, cement mixture, a net, and a string to tie the net onto the bars. For your bars, you can use PVC, aluminum, or steel tubing (I think PVC is the best because it is the easiest to work with).

According to the Fédération Internationale de Football Association, or FIFA, the dimensions of a full-sized match play goal must be 24×8 feet, so take this into consideration when purchasing your materials and constructing your goal.

WARNING: I suggest that you do not use home-made goals if your child plays on full-sized goals as these can break and potentially seriously harm your child. Instead, it is suggested that you buy competitively priced, professionally made soccer goals from a reputable dealer.

Step 1: The first thing you need to do is get your post hole diggers and dig holes for your two vertical posts. Keep in mind that the stability of the entire goal rests on these holes, so be sure that you dig them well enough and deep enough as to ensure structural stability.

Step 2: Once your holes are dug, mix your concrete and pour it into the holes with the vertical bars in place. I suggest quick drying cement here because it is simple and more efficient.

Step 4: Find a friend! Here you will need to attach the cross bar to your goal, and it will be much easier if you have more than one person doing the job. A ladder might also come in handy, unless you’re Yao Ming, then you might be alright.

Step 4: Choose a net that best meets your needs. A net can be either permanent or replaceable. Make sure that you decide this ahead of time and fasten the net to the posts accordingly. Be advised, this job can be time consuming because of the many connections between the bars and the net that need to be made.

Step 5: Once the net is installed, test it out using a good quality soccer ball and a good quality leg! Make sure to also check the structural stability to ensure safety for you friends and family.

Making a goal is really not as hard as you think, as long as you have the time and patience to do it right!

Soccer video games are highly popular all around the world and many people wonder what the best soccer video game actually is. That is why I decided to gather some of the best soccer video games, each one in its one genre.

Management Games

Top Eleven 2015 – There is no doubt that Top Eleven 2015 is one of the greatest management games, and I dare to day it is the best soccer video game in the management genre. This game is brilliant on many levels – its graphics are beautiful and wonderfully detailed, it has intuitive and easy controls and the overall experience is just great. Top Eleven 2015 lets you play a football manager, and your mission is to bring your football team to greatness. You are responsible for every aspect of your team’s success – finances, public relations, your player’s health and fitness and much more. If you’re a soccer fan then you will probably like this game a lot.


Active Soccer – I believe Active Soccer is the best soccer video game in the genre of arcade games, mostly because it provides players with a simple, casual and fun experience of soccer playing. It has a classic gameplay, nice graphics and a multiplayer option. You can practice free kicks and penalties, compete in the world cup and enjoy some very cool features that will keep you entertained and excited through the game. Active Soccer is a wonderful arcade game and you should definitely check it out.


Button Football – It was not easy to find the best soccer video game in the casual genre, but Button Football definitely deserves this title. This game is not sophisticated in any way, but it stimulates soccer in a very fun and casual way, and it is suitable even for younger children and for people who are not that much into soccer.

Are Soccer Video Games Suitable for Everyone?

Soccer video games are mostly suitable for people who like to either play or watch soccer, but not necessarily. Some of these games require knowledge of the rules of soccer and therefore are only suitable for soccer fans, but some of these games are casual and only require a basic understanding of soccer, which can be given to the player by a simple tutorial.

Whether you’re a soccer fan or not, there are many games out there that can be suitable for you, so just download and try them out!

Some criticism, justified to a degree, has been made about the band who closed the ceremony of the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction last Saturday night in Cleveland. Apparently the choice for the final song, although it was among the group’s best known hits, did not serve as a good send off.

It was appropriate that the Moody Blues be given the honor of performing last, since they were the most long established among inductees that included Bon Jovi, the Cars and Dire Straits. Perhaps not so appropriate was the classic the Moody Blues decided to perform at the end of the ceremony, the poetic but somber “Nights In White Satin.”

It is undoubtedly one of the group’s signature songs, but they should have gone with a more upbeat selection from their impressive catalogue of hits. Rather than going out with a whimper, as the T. S. Eliot poem suggests, the Moody Blues could have gone out with a bang.

Here are ten songs from their various albums that might have made for a more festive ending for the ceremony.

I’m Just a Singer In a Rock and Roll Band

After all, the shrine is called the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so this hit from Seventh Sojourn would have made for the perfect coda.

In Your Wildest Dreams

Most performers aspire to one day reach the pinnacle of success, therefore this single from The Other Side Of Life would reflect those wishes.

The Story In Your Eyes

“I’ve been thinking about a fortune” the song begins, and there could be no greater treasure for a musician than to make it into the landmark in Cleveland.


This opening track from A Question Of Balance would have been a great closing track to do for the ceremony.

The Voice

Its chorus begs to be told over and over again, almost as in disbelief of the great event that has transpired.

Nice To Be Here

Unfortunately this song, as perfect as its theme might be, would not sound right without writer and singer Ray Thomas, who passed away a few moths before the band was inducted.

Gemini Dream

Being the most well-known collaboration of the two main members, Hayward and Lodge, would have made this tune from Long Distance Voyager a fitting closer.

Tuesday Afternoon

A sweet blend of harmony, orchestration, acoustic, and changing paces would have probably satisfied all members of the audience of the Museum on Saturday night.

Lovely To See You

This title would have served as a nice gesture to the spectators, as well as to their fellow inductees.

Go Now

How fitting it would have been to close the inductions with the first hit the band ever had, back when Denny Lane fronted before the arrival of John Lodge and Justin Hayward.

The World Cup was the dominant topic of the sports world last week but, as not even a lukewarm fan of soccer, I saw only about ten minutes of the action. The only reason I happened to see that limited segment is because a game ran over the estimated time, which pre-empted the Judge Judy episode I had intended to watch.

Nevertheless, a snippet of the post championship game caught my eye and, more importantly my ear. As the video played the Croatians, after a heartbreaking loss in the final round were heard singing a song I immediately recognized.

It was the Oasis hit “Don’t Look Back In Anger” from the British band’s most popular album, What’s the Story Morning Glory. It is the second most famous song from that record, trailing only the classic single “Wonder Wall.”

I found it somewhat of an odd tune for the runner-up in the World Cup, but it made me contemplate what song their victorious opponents would choose. Those in the winner’s circle could celebrate by playing some well-known song the mention the capitol of their country, the European nation of France.

Here are ten songs that mention that very city in their titles.

Let’s Tango In Paris by the Stranglers

This is one of the acoustic numbers from Feline, the 1980 album that marked the punk rock band’s definitive transformation into a more accessible sound.

Free Man In Paris by Joni Mitchell

“Help Me” and “Chelsea Morning” combined with this classic to make Court and Spark the most commercially successful album of the folk songstress.

Crimes of Paris by Elvis Costello

French landmarks like the Eiffel Tower are mentioned in this fine track from the Nick Lowe produced Blood and Chocolate.

Une Nuit A Paris by 10cc

A three part musical epic, this opener sets the stage for the group’s breakthrough album The Original Soundtrack.

Paris 1919 by John Cale

After leaving the Velvet Underground Cale made many solo records, none better than the one from which this title track comes.me

I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris by Morrissey

The city of love would not appear to be a likely destination for the frequently melancholy singer of the Smiths, but here he figuratively embraces it.

Dreaming of Paris by Van Dyke Parks

In addition to producing great discs by Phil Ochs, Harry Nilsson and Biff Rose, Parks demonstrated here and on other tracks from Songs Cycled that he could make great records of his own.

Going To Paris by the Waterboys

It was not as big a hit as “The Whole of the Moon”, but it is more representative of the typical sound of the alternative British band.

I Love Paris by Frank Sinatra

Ella Fitzgerald made the song a standard, but Old Blue Eyes is responsible for my favorite rendition.

Leaving For Paris by Rufus Wainwright

The son of Loudon and sister of Martha has made many good records of his own, as this track proves.

Land of Champions

Universally famous for its talented footballers, the South American republic of Uruguay will compete in the men’s Olympian soccer championship in the Briton capital of London in July and August 2012, after a 84-year absence in the Olympiad. Along with Brazil and the host country, it is one of the “heavy-favorites” to win the crown in the multi-sport event, an Olympic title won by Pedro Cea and his fellow Uruguayans in the 1920s (a couple of years prior to winning the Inaugural World Cup). Curiously enough Uruguay would have won more medals, but in the middle of the 1970s it refused to attend the Montreal Games and then an international boycott deprived the country of the opportunity of making an Olympian appearance in the former Soviet republic of Russia.

Olympic History

By mid-1924, the national side left Montevideo (country’s capital city) for Paris to attend the Games of the VIII Olympiad. There, with passion and discipline, Uruguay’s team made headline news across the world when it was the champion in the men’s football tournament, ahead of Switzerland ( silver) and Sweden (bronze). In the meantime, it also became the first non-European team to receive the global title. Uruguay’s roster included footballers such as Andres Mazali, Pedro Arispe, Jose Vidal, Santos Urdinaran, Pedro Petrone, Angel Romano, Umberto Tomasina, Alfredo Zibechi, Jose Nasazzi, Jose Leandro Andrade, Alfredo Ghierra, Hector Scarone, Pedro Cea, Jose Naya,Pedro Casella, Luis Chiappara, Pedro Etchegoyen, Zoilo Saldombide, Pascual Somma, Fermin Uriarte, Pedro Zingone, and Antonio Urdinaran.

In the wake of its triumph in Western Europe, they were received as national heroes in their homeland country, at that time one of the most prosperous nations in the Spanish-speaking world.Over the years that followed, the peaceful republic of Uruguay was able to defend successfully its global trophy, gaining the admiration and respect of the world.

In the pre-Olympic year 1927, the Football Continental Cup had been won by the Argentine side after their win over Uruguay. Nonetheless, shortly after, these results changed in the Summer Olympics in the Netherlands. In a South American duel, the Uruguayan squad came first in the Olympiad upon their historic victory over Argentina 2-1 in the gold-medal match. Prior to the finals, the host nation and Germany were eliminated by the Uruguayan side. In Amsterdam (Holland), the Olympian winners were Andres Mazali, Pedro Arispe, Lorenzo Fernandez, Antonio Campolo, Pedro Petrone, Santos Urdinaran, Hector Scarone, Juan Arremon, Roberto Figueroa, Jose Nasazzi, Jose Leandro Andrade, Alvaro Gestido, Pedro Cea, Hector Castro, Adhemar Canavesi, Juan Piriz, and, Juan Peregrino Anselmo, Venancio Bartibas, Fausto Batignani, Domingo Tejera, Angel Melogno, and Rene Borjas.

Without Olympic Medals

During the 1930s and 1950s, the country’s squad earned the FIFA Cup twice; the last time with a stunning win against the host nation in Rio de Janeiro. As well as being world champion and nine-time winner of the South American contest, they also earned five Intercontinental events, eight Libertadores cups, seven Junior Continental championships (1954-1981), and one gold medal in the 1983 Pan American Sports Games (by defeating Brazil in the semis). It was really interesting. Yet despite these global achievements, the country’s sportsmen could not compete for the Summer Olympic Games.

The Return of Uruguay

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, tiny Uruguay had been plagued by political violence, financial crisis (budget deficits), mismanagement, and other social problems. But Uruguay’s nightmares did not stop. Additionally, this former Spaniard colony, once called “the Switzerland of the Americas”, began a war against rebel groups. But these problems came to a head when the nation’s anti-Marxist Head of State Juan Maria Bordaberry was overthrown in a coup in the latter half of the 70s. Soon afterwards, a heavy-handed military rule was installed for a 11-year period. As a consequence of this atmosphere, sport was gradually losing its status. Over the next few years, thousands of soccer players had been forced to play outside Uruguay, mainly in Argentina and Western Europe. Meanwhile, the country’s teams also had hurdles to make trips abroad.

Uruguay’s football – often referred to as one of the world’s finest squads– apparently appeared to emerge from its crisis in 1976. In February of that year, after some early successes in the Continental Tournament on Brazil’s northern coast, the national side gained a berth at the Montreal Games following a 48-year period of decline. During these decades, astonishingly there were not Uruguayan squads in the Summer Games, being defeated by Argentina, Colombia, Brazil and Paraguay in the Continental Olympic Qualification tournaments.

Nevertheless, the 1976 team inexplicably declined to go to Quebec, Canada, losing an important chance to capture one of the three Olympian medals in the amateur event. Later that year, the men’s football team failed to qualify for the FIFA World Tournament for the first time. Over the following period, soccer continued to face many obstacles: Prior to participating in the 1980 U.S.-led boycott of the Moscow Olympics because of its complex relationship with the Soviet Bloc, the country’s sports officials refused to compete in the Pre-Olympic Cup in Colombia, which gave Olympian tickets to South America. During this same period, Uruguay’s participation in the VIII Pan American Sports Games was suspended despite being the winner of the 1979 Junior Continental event.

The authoritarian government was brought to a close in 1985 when Julio Maria Sanguinetti won the multi-party polls. During the decades that followed, Uruguay’s democratic society began a new period with good news in many aspects.

Traditionally, South America is the “big favorite” in the Olympic championships. By 1988, Brazil assembled a squad of top footballers such as Romario, Bebeto, and Tafarell, who were runners-up in the Olympiad in Korea, a medal that Brazil had won in 1984 in Southern California. In the second half of the 1990s, Argentina was second and Brazil, with its global star Ronaldo, third, respectively. In the following century, Ivan Zamorano — one of South America’s finest footballers– and his fellow sportsmen helped Chile to win its only medal in the Games in Oceania. Then, Argentina won two consecutive titles; by 2008 the Argentine side led Latin America to its fourth Olympic gold medal in Beijing. Aside from this, Paraguay’s football players earned the silver medal in the 2004 Modern Olympics in Greece’s capital city of Athens. At London 2012, South America is represented by Uruguay and Brazil.

The national squad won the right to attend the London 2012 Games after finishing second in the South American Youth Championship in early 2011 on Peruvian soil. During the regional tournament, Uruguay’s contingent made history when it defeated Argentina -twice Olympic gold medalist, 2004 & 2008 — 1-0. The Uruguayan Olympic Committee probably will send the following footballers to London 2012: Diego Polenta (who plays in Italy), Adrian Luna, Matias Vecino, Diego Forlan (the country’s best athlete in this century), Federico Rodriguez, Pablo Capellini, Matias Jones, Ramon Arias, Nicolas Prieto, Camilo Mayada, Leandro Cabrera (plays in Spain), Luis Machado, Luis Suarez ( one of the world’s top players), Alvaro Pereira, and Sebastian Gallegos (plays in Spain).

EUFA Champions League is world famous football league held every year, where champions of every European country leagues from last year are group in this awesome UEFA Championship League to play a win the trophy that will declare them the best Football Team of Europe.

Therefore this is a multi-million tournament! New stars and born in this most awaiting football event and this is why all football/soccer fans love to watch, enjoy and bet on this event.

Inter Milan is the current UEFA Championship League trophy holder; they beat Bayern Munich 2-0 in the last Champions League finals.

Real Madrid is the team who won the most UEFA Championship League, they left this trophy 9 times (1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1966, 1998, 2000, 2002), followed by AC Milan who won 7 times (1963, 1969, 1989, 1990, 1994, 2003, 2007) and Liverpool who won 5 times (1977, 1978, 1981, 1984, 2005).

Bayern Munich and Ajax both won 4 times, Bayern Munich in (1974, 1975, 1976, 2001) and Ajax in (1971, 1972, 1973, 1995).

Barcelona, Inter Milan and Manchester United won 3 times each. Barcelona in (1992, 2006, 2009), Inter Milan in (1964, 1965, 2010) and Manchester United in (1968, 1999, 2008).

Benfica, Juventus, Nottingham Forest and Porto won 2 times in tournament; Benfica in (1961, 1962), Juventus in (1985, 1996), Nottingham Forest in (1979, 1980) and Porto in (1987, 2004).

Celtic, Hamburg, Steaua BucureYti, Marseille, Feyenoord, Aston Villa, PSV Eindhoven, Red Star Belgrade and Borussia Dortmund won 1 time each.

Meaning 4 British teams: Liverpool, Machester United, Nottingham Forest and Aston Vila have won this competition. Followed by 3 Italian teams: Ac Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus and 3 German teams: Bayern Munich, Hamburg and Borussia Dortmund.

The reason why I am writing this is because this is crucial data that can help to predict which team from which country got better odds to win the next UEFA Championship League.

Heavy better usually really on this sort of data (plus experience). It is estimated that over 100 million bets are placed every year over UEFA Championship League.

I cannot say which team will win the next Champions League, however based from this crucial data I can say that a team from Britain as better chances to win the next Champions League as a team from Romania; since the only Romanian team (Steaua BucureYti) won only 1 Champions league so far. Where 4 strong British teams such as: Liverpool, Manchester United, Nottingham Forest and Aston Vila won 11 times in total.

Most actions on a soccer field are fouls only by degree, and become fouls only if done in an unfair manner. Players often bump into each other while running, or push past each while each is trying to avoid a collision. These actions are just part of the game, and most bodily contact is quite incidental to the players’ attempts to win the ball.

Sometimes, though, players will exceed the bounds of fair play, either through enthusiasm or frustration, or simply by overestimating their body’s ability to do what their brains are telling them to do. It is up to the referee to decide when those actions will exceed the bounds of fair play.


Soccer is a contact sport. This means that the players can use their bodies and muscles to try to win the ball. On the other hand, soccer is not ice hockey; and unlike some other sports, soccer players are not supposed to crash into each other, or body-check their opponents. For the referee trying to keep things under control, the important thing will be the force of the contact, as well as the targeted area of the opponent’s body. Also, once the goalkeeper collects the ball, opposing players may not lawfully try to play it.

Fans and players often hear about “shoulder-to-shoulder” charges, and these are the charges that most coaches try to teach. Unless undertaken with a running start, most shoulder charges will be allowed, but this is not, strictly speaking, a requirement of a fair charge. Owing to human anatomy, though, most fair charges will come in the general direction of the shoulder area, not by use of the hips–and never directed toward back or the spine. If performed with clearly undue force, particularly toward the small of the back, a charge may be deemed reckless or worse, and punished with a caution and a yellow card–or, in extreme cases, with a red card and send-off.

The AirCast AirSport (TM) Ankle Brace has proven itself over the years as the benchmark for all stirrup ankle braces.

The AirSport (TM) Ankle Brace incorporates clinically proven Air-Stirrup® Ankle Brace features, such as a semi-rigid shell and airells, to provide comfort and support. Additional compression and stabilization is provided by ATF (anterior talofibular) cross strap and integral forefoot and shin wraps.

The unique "step-in" design (toes first inserted into the back of the brace) and automatic heel adjustment make the AirSport (TM) extremely fast and easy to put on. This design also prevails excessive movement of the brace within the shoe.

The AirSport (TM) Ankle Brace is used in a wide variety of sports activities, with only certain limitations. Some sports that require cleaned shoes may not have the room to accommodate the AirSport (TM). Baseball, football and soccer may require a lower profile brace to fit into cleats. The AirCast A60 (TM) is a great alternative if that is the situation an athlete faces. The A60 (TM) is similar in function to the AirSport (TM), but less bulky and a lower profile brace.

The AirSport (TM) is ideal for all indoor and outdoor sports where ankle protection and increase stability is required. Many patients wear the AirSport after an injury has cured for additional protection from recurrence due to chronic instability.

Patient feedback has been remarkable, given the choices available in the brace market. It is available in a wide range of sizes to accommodate most shoe sizes.

If your shopping for an ankle brace that offers maximum support, with comfort and proven reliability, then look no further. This is the brace for you!

** It is always recommended to consult with your treating doctor to determine the correct brace for your orthopedic condition.
