Happy Monday everyone. Normally, Ryan is here giving you the weekend news recaps, but he and I are switching this week due to life schedules. So, let’s catch you up on some of the things that happened over the weekend.
Liverpool are the winners of the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League, winning the final 2-0 over Tottenham Hotspur. It’s their 6th European championship, which is 3rd-most all time behind Real Madrid’s 13 and AC Milan’s 7.
The Washington Spirit are on fire right now. Their win over the Utah Royals was their 4th straight, and they’re now in sole possession of 1st place in the league standings.
Another draw for D.C. United, this time a 1-1 deadlock against the San Jose Earthquakes. Chris Wondolowski scored for San Jose, and a 67th minute equalizer by Luciano Acosta earned the point.
The United States are coming to town Wednesday, facing Jamaica in a friendly at Audi Field. Coach Gregg Berhalter announced the roster for that friendly, with the full 23-man Gold Cup roster coming on Thursday.
Finally, sad news out of Spain as José Antonio Reyes, who played for Arsenal, Real Madrid, Atlético Madrid, Benfica, and Espanyol, died in a car crash over the weekend at just 35 years of age. A terrible loss for world soccer.
That’s it for today. Let us know what news hit for you this weekend.
