Chelsea vs. Manchester City: Key Battles
Yet another Yank Abroad is no longer a Yank Abroad. Juan Agudelo has failed in Europe and he will now be based in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Er...welcome back?
Down in Africa, they're blessing the rains with the quarterfinals of the African Cup of Nations.
Saturday – Congo vs. Congo DR
Saturday – Tunisia vs. Equitorial
Sunday – Ghana vs. Guinea
Sunday – Ivory Coast vs. Algeria
Democratic Republic of Congo vs. Republic of Congo. Hmmm. Interesting.
Over in Asia, they've reached the final. Looks like it'll be South Korea vs. Australia. Apparently, there is a fairytale in the making with a certain Korean striker. Here's your preview for the match itself.
Goodness gracious, they do hibernate for a long time in Germany, do they not? The long sleep is finally over and there will be top-flight football in Germany this weekend. Here's your Preview. More? Sure, why not?
Spain? They'll be rocking, too. Real Madrid in particular. Here's your Preview.
Italy? You know it. Milan and Parma are in trouble (crisis!!) and face each other on Sunday at the San Siro. Here's your Preview.
Richard Williams is a favorite scribe around SSN Headquarters. Today, his headline reads, "Euro 2012 left little mark on Ukraine, still haunted by its history." And then, there's this: "Few major tournaments can have felt so irrelevant to their time and place as the last European Championship and the potential fault lines in Ukraine were apparent to those who cared to look." Dig in.
That will be all, folks. Get to it.
