Happy Wednesday folks. It’s a big day for soccer, so let’s get right to the main course:
It’s the Europa League final (2:45pm, FS1), with Manchester United hoping to win for all of Manchester after the terrible tragedy that took place Monday night, while Ajax hopes to win its first European trophy since 1995. Who will win the crown in Stockholm?
Real Madrid win the race to sign Brazilian youngster Vinicius Junior, with $50 million being the money needed to secure his rights. He will join the team in 2019 and remain for now with Flamengo in the Brasileiro.
This may have been the most impressive yet terrible own goal in a very long time by Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori. It cost England 3 points against Guinea in the U-20 World Cup.
The hottest youth international for the United States is Josh Sargent. The U-17 U.S. captain and the goalscoring king for the U-20s could be on his way to Werder Bremen when he turns 18.
The former Disney chairman is about to assume control of Portsmouth, with dreams of getting Pompey back to the Premiership sooner rather than later.
The Ottawa Fury take it to Toronto FC, the hottest team so far in MLS, and Toronto has their back against the wall in the Canadian Championship semifinals.
Chapecoense is knocked out of Copa Libertadores after being assessed a 3 point penalty for fielding a suspended player during group stage play. The fairy tale ends for the team seeking to rebound from the tragic plane crash last November that killed nearly their entire team.
Zinedine Zidane is the man, and Frank Leboeuf believes Zizou is the man to eventually succeed Didier Deschamps as the coach for France.
Antoine Griezmann says it’s likely he will leave Atletico Madrid in the summer to join Manchester United.
And there you have it, everyone. Hit those comments and enjoy your day!
