Us Soccer Coach Done After World Cup Disaster

The soccer world was left stunned on Tuesday when the United States, needing an away win or draw at bottom of the group Trinidad & Tobago to clinch one of the CONCACAF region’s three automatic berths, suffered a humiliating 2-1 defeat. Bruce Arena on Friday, Oct. 13, resigned from his position as United States manager following the team's failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

 

The United States has failed to reach the World Cup since 1986.

 

 

FIFA Will Use System to Monitor Racism and Discrimination

During the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, FIFA will introduce a system of match observes who will monitor incidents of racism and discrimination. The observers will be trained to spot incidents of discrimination and report them to FIFA, which can then impose disciplinary sanctions on the countries involved.

 

Apart from football matches, guests will also be able to visit FIFA Fan Fests - special events organized by FIFA. These are officially dedicated areas to watch Confederations Cup 2017 matches, where everyone unable to come to the stadium is welcome to join the fun. This is the perfect way to safely and conveniently watch live coverage of the games between the best teams in the world.

 

Fernando Gaviria

Makes History For Colombia On The Bike

May 19, 2017

The 22-year-old, Fernando Gaviria, continued his sensational form at the Giro d'Italia on Friday, May 19, winning his second stage in succession and fourth in all as Tom Dumoulin comfortably retained his healthy general classification lead.

 

Colombian Fernando Gaviria won a dramatic, wind-affected third stage of the Giro d’Italia on Sunday to assume the race leader’s pink jersey ahead of Monday’s first rest day.

 

He is the first rider to win three stages on his Grand Tour debut since Uwe Raab in 1990, but he brushed off claims he is the best sprinter in the peloton.

 

A flat 13th-stage route from Reggio Emilia to Tortona was always likely to conclude with a bunch sprint and Gaviria again proved the class of the field.

 

There was no change at the top of the overall standings with Sunweb’s Tom Dumoulin preserving his 2min 23sec lead over Movistar’s Nairo Quintana, with Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) in third. But Thomas, whose overall chances were effectively wiped out by a major crash on Sunday, lost another 48sec on the leaders and now lies in 15th place, six minutes and 46sec back.
