Just before the 58th minute, Wayne Rooney jogged over from the corner flag where he’d been warming up with his D.C. United teammates. The crowd at the new Audi Field, often demure for much of the match, started murmuring, and then cheering. It was time. Rooney notched an assist, and made a stark...

On Monday night, Belgium arrived at a World Cup crossroads. They were two goals down to Japan , and nothing was working. Roberto Martinez had presented his Plan A, and it had been found wanting. And so he turned to his bench, and to Marouane Fellaini. In doing so, he arrived at a crossroads-withi...

Plus some reasons it might be OK for fans screaming ‘I WANT TO BELIEVE’ Wayne Rooney is coming to MLS, and he isn’t coming cheap. No one seems to have nailed down the exact financial details of his transfer quite yet, but it’s fair to say he’ll comfortably be the most expensive player D.C. United...

Argentina’s problems were not fixed with Messi and Rojo’s goals. But they have time to try to figure something out. After Mexico beat Nigeria 2-1 yesterday to advance to the knockout round of the 2018 World Cup , my colleague Kim McCauley brought up a recurring scene in the Bourne film franchise....

Nigeria and Argentina have one of the most surprising, and agonizingly lopsided, rivalries in international soccer. Marcos Rojo has only scored three goals for Argentina . Two of them have been against Nigeria . His first goal came in the 2014 World Cup , when he scored Argentina’s third to beat...

In a game that was largely symbolic, Paul Pogba and others made their mark. Look, we’re going to have to face it. Sometimes, a game of football just doesn’t make sense. Sometimes — as with the Manchester derby — the cliche of two halves doesn’t quite cut it. This was a game of at least six teams....

Manchester City is the betting chalk at the sportsbooks this weekend as they host Manchester United in another chapter of their Derby on Saturday. With only one loss through 31 games in a remarkable 27-1-3 campaign, Manchester City is well on its way to the English Premier League title. Despite t...

It’s time for refs to finally give big athletes the justice they deserve. There were several instances in Manchester United’s match against Sevilla in which Romelu Lukaku was fouled while on the ball, but the foul wasn’t called . For some of them, he stayed on his feet through the tackles, which...

Jose Mourinho has all the typical Jose Mourinho stuff down, but his team is still best at playing like underdogs. Perhaps Jose Mourinho is just playing the long game. After all, Manchester United ’s miserable elimination by Sevilla in the last 16 of the Champions League may look bad, at first blu...

Just a minute after coming off the bench, Sevilla leading scorer Wissam Ben Yedder scored the goal to end United’s campaign. Manchester United is out of the Champions League after a disappointing display at Old Trafford. The Red Devils followed up a disappointing 0-0 draw away to Sevilla with a 2...

Manchester United are on a roll, and a Champions League Round of 16 win would only spark their momentum further. The Champions League Round of 16 is nearly done, but there’s still a little more distance to go before the quarterfinals are drawn. Manchester United have been on a roll of late in Eng...

Manchester United hosts Chelsea and Arsenal hosts Manchester City in this week’s top matches on the English Premier League betting slate. Only three points separate fourth place Chelsea from second place Manchester United on the English Premier League table. Chelsea will have the chance to make u...

And Jose Mourinho’s feud with Paul Pogba is the worst part of United’s downturn. To be fair to Jose Mourinho, whatever his plan was, it was over within a few minutes. Ander Herrera started for Manchester United against Sevilla , and he had two jobs. One, the cover story, was to bustle around in m...

It wasn’t a great performance for Manchester United, but they also didn’t get a bad result from the match. Sevilla dominated the day, but Manchester United still managed to just come out of the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie with a scoreless draw on a day where David De Gea w...

Manchester United are in wildly uneven form, and Sevilla aren’t going to give them any breathing room. The Champions League can bring us some interesting, somewhat unexpected matchups, and that seems to be the case with Manchester United heading to Spain to face Sevilla on Wednesday. Manchester U...

Arsenal, Manchester United, and both players will benefit immensely from this move. One of the longest running transfer sagas of the winter window has come to and end, and while it took a different shape than we thought it would a couple of weeks ago, it could have a fairly profound impact on the...

Manchester United is on the road this Saturday to face Burnley in this week’s top matchup on the English Premier League betting board. Manchester United is unbeaten in its last six games with a 3-0-3 record, including wins in each of its last three matches. The club will try to pick up a fourth s...

The Manchester United manager is exhausting. Jose Mourinho has left chilly England for the sunshine of Dubai, taking his Manchester United squad and surly countenance with him. He will doubtless be hoping that a break will do his team good, and his team will likewise be hoping that a bit of sunsh...

Manchester United can’t afford to drop points as they start the second half of their season. One of the more intriguing Boxing Day matchups in the Premier League sees Manchester United hosting Burnley , with both teams in mediocre form but with lots on the line for both teams.

Leicester City have been having a solid bounceback season after a year of disappointments in their last campaign, and as the holiday season arrives they have a chance to cement themselves as a solid team in the Premier League and turn around a bit of a speed bump in their form, as they’re set to...

Can Mourinho play the way he wants without a settled defence? This season, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho appears to be missing many things. A twinkle in his eye. A skip in his step. Even the tiniest amount of joie de vivre. And, of course, a football team that pleases the eye, raises th...

Manchester City hosts Manchester United as a road betting favorite at the sportsbooks in the Manchester Derby this Sunday at Old Trafford. Manchester City is undefeated with a 14-0-1 record through its first 15 games. That unbeaten streak will be put to the test this Sunday when City faces Manche...

How can someone this good, this young, make it all seem so easy? One of my favorite things about Manchester United’s Paul Pogba is that he is very good at putting himself between the defender and the ball when he’s dribbling. He posts up the defender and then rolls the ball with the bottom of his...

Two of the top five teams in the English Premier League collide this weekend as Manchester United visits Arsenal in the highlight matchup on the betting slate. Arsenal has lost only one time in its last six matches against Manchester United holding a 3-1-2 edge in the head-to-head series over tha...
