Rio Votes To Rename Maracanã After Pelé

You know that feeling as a kid when you’re thoroughly enjoying something and then your little brother comes along and kills the mood? Perhaps you’re telling a great story at the dinner table and then the little rat has to make it about him.

Reinier, At Long Last, Scores First Dortmund Goal

Reinier, 18 at the time, arrived in Germany with high hopes. 

The Brazilian attacker signed for Borussia Dortmund on a two-year loan deal from Real Madrid, having joined the Spanish giants from Flamengo in January 2020 on a $36 million deal.

Flamengo Es Bicampeón De Brasil Tras Dramática Intervención Del VAR

Flamengo se coronó bicampeón del Brasil, en un cierre de torneo dramático y electrificante. El pasado 21 de febrero, el Mengao escaló al primer lugar de la tabla luego de vencer por 2-1 al hasta entonces puntero, Internacional de Porto Alegre. Con 71 puntos sobre 69, sin embargo, la definición quedó en suspenso hasta la última jornada, disputada el jueves 25, y en la que Flamengo visitaba a Sao Paulo e Inter recibía a Corinthians.

¡Y qué definición fue! Una de esas que pone el corazón en la boca y que tuvo al VAR como protagonista hasta el último suspiro del campeonato.

The sternest test of the USWNT’s 2021 SheBelieves Cup was ultimately passed on Sunday as Christen Press’ 11th-minute goal was enough to overcome Brazil before Megan Rapinoe’s late insurance strike at Exploria Stadium in Orlando.

The Best Player In FIFA 10 Just Signed With Orlando City

On Friday I said I’m done playing FIFA, but that doesn’t mean I’ll stop reminiscing about the series I played for more than two decades. I fondly remember how AC Milan was ridiculously good on FIFA 10 and 11, and it wasn’t just because of Ronaldinho, Zlatan and Alessandro Nesta. It’s because of a Brazilian striker who was one of the best players in the FIFA video games for a couple of years.

Remembering The Day That Corinthians Beat Chelsea In The Club World Cup

It was nighttime at the Yokohama International Stadium in Japan, but early morning in this part of the world. The respectful and silent crowd that usually populates the stands of this Japanese stadium gave way to the warming chants of the Paulista torcida, who never stopped cheering on their team, creating an atmosphere worthy of a final.

The overwhelming majority of Brazilian fans carried Corinthians from the first minute onwards and, with the feeling of playing at home, they went out to play with no holds barred.
