Backup plan: USWNT gambles on its depth
The U.S. rested most of its starters and still dominated Chile in the World Cup. Will that keep the first string fresh or could it disrupt the team's rhythm?

Lloyd, a World Cup starter again, scores 2 as US beats Chile
Carli Lloyd wasn't thrilled to open the Women's World Cup on the bench for the United States. She accepted the role, but made no secret she wanted to start. When the call came Sunday, Lloyd made it count with a pair of goals to lead the defending champions to a 3-0 victory over Chile.

Paul Pogba gambling that going public with desire to leave Manchester United will force the club's hand... but will it?
Quite how big a fuss Pogba is prepared to kick up, quite how much of a stink he is willing to make, remains to be seen but the clock is ticking and, with United still insistent that the midfielder will be playing for them next season, the ball is back in the player's court. There are just 53 days until the Premier League transfer window closes and, if one bears in mind how long it took United to agree an £89m deal with Juventus for the midfielder three years ago, when there was a willingness on behalf of both clubs and the player to do a deal, it is clear that it is not a lot of time at all when there are still so many complicating factors.

Neither the referee nor VAR gave a red card for this high kick at the Women's World Cup (video)
While Video Assistant Referee's role at this Women's World Cup has been a big talking point, generally there hasn't been much disagreement over the validity of the calls made. In that light, try this on for size. Cameroon's Ngo Mbeleck received a yellow card for this high challenge that nearly caught the Netherlands' Jackie Groenen in the head: Mbeleck clearly beats Groenen to the ball and kicks it away; that's not at issue.

Just how different will Manchester United look next year?
The Manchester United boss will seemingly be pulling together a significant amount of new parts into a team which is coming off a sixth place finish in the Premier League, with four of the five teams ahead of him having maintained their managers and most if not all key pieces. Oh, and he'll have to fashion this team based out of parts willing to buy into the club's mystique and ignore the lack of UEFA Champions League play (which is seemingly why Paul Pogba is ready to skip town). Big paychecks will help, but there's no way to quickly meld these pieces into one unit.

Messi 'bitter' as Colombia stun Argentina
Lionel Messi said his team was feeling bitter after Argentina lost their opening Copa America match 2-0 to Colombia despite dominating the second half. Goals from Roger Martinez and Duvan Zapata in the final 20 minutes gave Colombia their first tournament victory over Argentina in 20 years as Messi's hopes of finally landing a major international tournament after losing in four finals suffered a serious blow. "We leave here feeling bitter," said Messi following the Group B clash in Salvador.

Copa America: Rodriguez leads Colombia to win over Argentina
James Rodriguez got the best of Lionel Messi in the Copa America, leading Colombia to a 2-0 win over Argentina in their opening game in the South American tournament on Saturday. Rodriguez set up Roger Martinez's opening goal in the second half with a high, diagonal pass across the field, and substitute Duván Zapata scored late to seal the victory that allowed Colombia to end a 12-year winless streak against the Argentines. Messi had missed a chance to put Argentina in front, sending a close-range header off target as his team opened the tournament with a loss for the first time since 1979.

Uriel Antuna scores hat trick as Mexico steamroll Cuba
Mexico's opening Gold Cup match was one long celebration as Tata Martino's team steamrolled Cuba 7-0 before a boisterous crowd at the Rose Bowl Saturday night. Uriel Antuna set the tone two minutes in with a scrappy goal, as a cross from Jesus Gallardo dangerously ricoched from point-blank range and finally rebounded off the post before the LA Galaxy swept the ball into the net. A player who wasn't even supposed to be there, Untuna was added at the last minute as a replacement for Club America defender Jorge Sanchez and looked every bit like someone who wants to stick around. Moments before the half in the 44th minute, Antuna smartly anticipated a last-minute tackle and once again smacked into

Transfer rumor roundup: Maguire on record fee, Rondon to Newcastle
This is just too much, but that's the price you pay for English national team center backs in the Premier League. Manchester United is said to be prepared to offer Leicester City a wild $113 million to bring Harry Maguire to Old Trafford, a bid almost $13 million more than Man City's reported ceiling (itself an eyebrow-raiser). While the fee is insane, Maguire brings invaluable consistency in his performances and does have plenty of punch in the box on attacking corner kicks.

Pogba should snub Real Madrid and settle unfinished business at Man Utd, says Pires
Paul Pogba should forget about a move to Real Madrid this summer because he has "unfinished business" at Manchester United, former France star Robert Pires says. The 26-year-old continues to be linked to a move to the Spanish side after another underwhelming season at Old Trafford that ended with the Red Devils finishing sixth in the Premier League. Three years after United beat Madrid to the signing of the France midfielder, there is growing speculation that a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu is imminent this summer.

Lloyd was the star of the 2015 Women's World Cup four years ago in Canada, scoring three goals in the first 16 minutes of the final to help the U.S. national team win its third World Cup title. The hat trick earned Lloyd the nickname "Captain America" and made her one of women's soccer most recognizable athletes. She was voted FIFA Women's Player of the Year, NFL quarterback Marcus Mariota teed up a football for her in a Nike commercial and she wrote a successful book.

Julie Ertz scores 1st World Cup goal with husband looking on
PARIS (AP) - Julie Ertz scored her first Women's World Cup goal in the United States' 3-0 victory over Chile, and she was cheered on by her husband, Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz. Zach wrapped up Eagles' minicamp this week and got to Paris in plenty of time for Sunday's match at Parc des Princes. Julie scored in the 26th minute on a leaping, twisting header and blew a kiss in her husband's direction. The 27-year-old scored her 19th goal in 84 international appearances. Although Julie played on the U.S. team that won the World Cup in Canada four years ago, she had a more defensive role on that team - and she was still known by her maiden name, Julie Johnston. She has since shifted to

Women’s World Cup: Jodie Taylor and Beth Mead on the secret behind England’s winning goal against Argentina
Jodie Taylor and Beth Mead believe that rooming together at the Women's World Cup was the secret behind England's decisive goal in the hard-fought 1-0 victory over Argentina on Friday night.

What Makes a Glock Gun Different Than Any Other (Love It Or Hate It)
When Glock released the Glock 17, it reinvented the striker-fired pistol. While strikers saw some usage in early semiautomatic pistols like the Savage 1907 and Ruby, they largely faded into obscurity as hammer-fired designs came to dominate pistols design during WWII and in the immediate postwar era. H&K made a brief attempt to revive the striker with the VP70, a polymer frame striker-fired pistol that came before the Glock, but the striker design in the VP70 resulted in a horrendous trigger pull and limited the success of the pistol.

This current transfer window is dreamland compared to what it could have been!
It has been almost three weeks since Aston Villa's playoff final triumph and the transfer merry-go-round is in full swing at Villa Park. Most recently the club announced the record signing of Brazilian striker Wesley Moraes from Club Brugges for £22million, which blindsided the Villa faithful, who have been perpetually awaiting the announcement of Tyrone Mings since Wembley. In truth not many of us can claim to know anything about Wesley, who is due in Birmingham at the weekend, presumably to have his picture taken and await international clearance. However, this signing feels very significant in our rapid accent into the Premier League, not least because it breaks, or at least matches a decade

It looks like that is the case but with Championship side Cardiff City expected to win the race for the central defender. The Daily Mail reports that the Welsh club have agreed a deal to sign the 26-year-old who is out of contract at the end of this month. Another target snapped up?

Qatar came from two goals down to draw 2-2 against Paraguay in their Copa America debut, Rodrigo Rojas heading a Boualem Khoukhi effort into his own goal for a bizarre late equaliser. Paraguay looked set to claim all three Group B points in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday after taking a fourth-minute lead thanks to Oscar Cardozo's penalty, with Derlis Gonzalez scoring an unstoppable second. But invited guests Qatar, who won their maiden Asian Cup earlier this year, showed character to fight back and star man Almoez Ali got them back in the game with a curler from outside the box.

According to a report by John Richardson of English tabloid The Daily Mirror, Liverpool frontmen Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have both told the club they are rejecting tempting offers from “leading continental clubs” to stay at Liverpool at least one more year. The report says that Salah in particular heard from both Real Madrid and Juventus about the clubs preparing massive $189 million offers, but told them he would not entertain contract negotiations that usually precede those type of enormous deals. Richardson reports that the outside interest was serious enough that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had internal discussions about contingency plans should Salah be tempted by the possibility of leaving, but instead he will stay to have another go at ending Liverpool's long domestic title drought.

SANDY, Utah (Saturday, June 15, 2019) – Utah Royals FC (5-2-1, 16 points) returned from the brief World Cup break, but didn't miss a beat in getting back to its winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Sky Blue FC on Saturday night at Rio Tinto Stadium. URFC got an early goal from FW Amy Rodriguez, her fifth of the season, and GK Nicole Barnhart made five saves for her fifth shutout of the season.

For Ellis, if there are any slips before that meeting with the host nation to veer off that collision course, it certainly won't be intentional. “I struggle to tell my team not to tackle in training the day before,” Ellis joked during Saturday's pre-match media conference, explaining if she can't get her team to take it easy in practice, there's no way she could get them to go half speed during a game.

Australia were lucky against Brazil but can't rely on that fortune again
In their opening two games against Italy and Brazil at the Women's World Cup, Australia have had significant tactical issues. Australia's 3-2 win over Brazil has been dubbed the "Miracle of Montpellier." Overturning a 2-0 deficit really is not the miracle, but that so much could go one side's way over the course of 45 minutes. Not to state a position on the legitimacy of Richard Thaler's hot hand theory but, on Thursday, the Matildas could have then gone to Monte Carlo and made miracles happen as well. It had a dramatic impact on Brazil's overall ball speed, while putting untenable pressure on Andressa to create and progress the ball in their phases of possession over the second 45 minutes.

Why US soccer star Megan Rapinoe doesn't sing the national anthem
As the national anthem played before the U.S. women's national team took on Thailand in the FIFA Women's World Cup last week, the team stood in a row on the field. A camera panned down the line of players during the broadcast, showing each with her hand over her heart, mouthing along to the song. At the end of the line was Megan Rapinoe, the co-captain and one of the biggest stars of the team. She stood impassively, hands at her sides, not singing along. Rapinoe's silent observance of the anthem is part of a years-long protest by the athlete. “ ” Being a gay American, I know what it means to look at the flag and not have it protect all of your liberties.
