Women’s World Cup: Sees worst ref blunder of all time

Thierry Henry cleverly camouflaged his hand from the referee while providing the assist that doomed Ireland from participating in last year’s World Cup. Last month was 25th anniversary of Maradona’s unforgettable hand of god goal against England in the 1986 World Cup. In both instances the referee was bamboozled into believing its legitimacy.

Canadian goalkeeper makes history with goal at U-17 World Cup

In 24 years of FIFA World Cup competition, Canada’s U-17 national soccer team has never won a match. They hadn’t even played to a draw during a 13-match streak in which they’d been outscored 45-3.

That changed last night in Pachuca, Mexico, when backup Canadian goalkeeper Quillan Roberts scored a miraculous equalizing goal with three minutes remaining in the match to earn a 2-2 draw against soccer superpower England.
