FIRST!

Eto'o spoke with Moratti after the Coppa Italia final, and it was agreed Eto'o will remain at Inter. "When the President speaks, I listen." - Eto'o.

Here's why a lot of sports fans/football fans kind of make me sick:

Pootie (July 9, 2011 02:17 PM ET): I'd be lying if I said that WWC even crossed my mind this morning...

Pootie (July 9, 2011 05:02 PM ET): JAPAAAAANNNNNNNN **** BAYERN!!!!





Just once I'd like to know what it's like to join the sports bandwagon. I imagine it's like sex with a stranger. It feels good, but isn't really satisfying.

aha! This link is still hiding from the main FN Soccer page.

the WPS basically got saved with the game yesterday. They'll LAST if the US wins the WWC. I honestly think the France game will be their hardest game.

Oh yea, damn near any bit of that possible cute and shag-quality I thought Marta had went away when she turned into a velociraptor during her AET goal celebration

I mean ... I was, so I imagine Eto'o had to be too ;)

Also, as I don't frequent fannation on the weekends, I wanted to address two points from Ruy Diaz from yesterday.

Ruy Diaz: "Can we stop the crap now about Nadine Angerer being as good as Hope Solo?"

Here's the thing. Nadine Angerer is the only goal keeper in the history of the FIFA World Cup, Men's or Women's that has conceded ZERO goals in tournament on the way to the World Cup title. Until Hope Solo does that, hell, until she WINS a tournament:

Angerer > Solo


Ruy Diaz: "Most dramatic equalizer I've ever seen."


Within 1/2 second, these three come into my head:

Getafe-Bayern, second leg of UEFA Cup 2008. Bayern down 1-3 in the 115th Minute. Bayern won the match with goals in the 115th and 120th.

Champions League Final 1999. ****.

Champions League Final 2005. Liverpool down 0-3 to AC Milan at the half. And wins.

I agree.

Was it just me or did Hope get a little hotter after she saved 2 PK's in one game.

I so would not do this at RFK. Even if I was a Redskins fan.

No, I draw the line at punching 5'5'' Guatemalans with Brazil t-shirts cheering for Japan.
