Have you ever seen a hattrick of own goals? well feast your eyes on this. In the She Believes Cup, the U.S Women's National Team beat New Zealand WNT 5-0 and 3 of them were own goals by New Zealand CB, Meikayla Moore. The goals were the worst kind of unintentional own goals i’ve ever seen.



Should both Mbappe/Haaland Come. Who is leaving?

We’re already in the business half of the season with 3 more months left to go. Changing formation now, IMO, isn’t ideal anymore. Changing starting XI personnel on the other hand...


Our free-kicks, we haven’t had a single consistent dead-ball specialist from distance for some years now. We’ve scored very few freekicks the last 3 years, and we hardly win fouls in dangerous areas around the box. Kroos is good for the indirect freekick but we need someone who can pin it on goal directly.
