    The USA progressed through a tricky Group B to the knockout stages, but it will only get harder in the next phase of the competition to keep moving forward. An impressive draw with England will give them confidence they can compete with some of the bigger names in the tournament, though they'll need to be clinical if they wish to make a run in Qatar. Gregg Berhalter's side scored just two goals in their three group stage matches, but their stingy defense (zero goals allowed from open play) will give them a chance to reach the latter stages if it continues. They were the only team in the entire tournament not to concede from open play in the group stage. Sportsmail have had a look at the USA's potential and likely route to the final of the World Cup they are going to have to conquer if they want to lift the Jules Rimet trophy for the first time ever. A trip to the World Cup final would certainly keep a smile on Gregg Berhalter's face The USMNT advanced from Group...

    FIFA are considering introducing penalty shoot-outs to the World Cup group stages, with successful teams potentially earning bonus points at the end of tied games at the 2026 tournament.  In four years time the World Cup will be held across the north American continent, with matches set to take place in each of USA, Canada and Mexico in a trilateral tournament. As a result there will be an extra knockout round following the groups, with the top two sides set to qualify from the 16 three-team groups - a system adopted following a unanimous FIFA vote.  Staging the shootouts after games does however give rise to potential collusion between the countries involved - something FIFA would understandably be eager to avoid.  A situation could arise in which a particular result benefits both sides in question, and thereby eliminating the third team in the group.  Since 1986 the final round of fixtures in each group has been played at the same time in order to prevent such a circumstance from arising.   FIFA are considering introducing penalty shootouts to the group stages...
    Christian Pulisic should be healthy for the US national soccer team's do-or-die match with the Netherlands on Saturday, says captain Tyler Adams, who is admittedly relieved after beating Iran in the Group B finale to advance to the World Cup's knockout stage in Doha. 'A huge relief,' Adams told Good Morning America on Wednesday from Qatar. 'I think for us it was our goal coming into the World Cup to get out of the group but now anything can happen.' The US advanced by virtue of Tuesday's 1-0 win, thanks to a late first-half goal by Pulisic, who suffered a bruised abdomen while colliding with Iran's goalkeeper on the play and was subbed out by coach Gregg Berhalter at halftime. Pulisic was taken to the hospital as a precaution, but responded to the victory on social media, writing that he will 'be ready Saturday' for the round-of-16 match with the Netherlands. Adams echoed the good news with GMA on Wednesday. 'He's doing alright,' Adams said. 'He's in great spirits feeling a lot better now but what a big player for...

    USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter has disclosed England manager Gareth Southgate has left his recent Whatsapp messages unread with their teams meeting in the World Cup. The duo were in touch via Whatsapp on a regular basis but the level of communication has waned ahead of the USA's showdown with the Three Lions in Group B Friday.

He sees it as a chance to show what they can do.  'I think we've always been viewed as an underdog in the eyes of America,' he told FOX Sports. 'I think they wonder if we can play football? This is an opportunity to show the world that we can go up against the best and beat the best.' Weah's goal against Wales in Monday's Group B opener was notable for two reasons: It was the United States' first in World Cup play since 2014, and it came in front of his celebrated father, George, the Liberian President and 1995 Ballon d'Or winner, who never played on soccer's biggest stage.

    Miami : One year after the start of one of the world’s worst crises, and one year after the first known death from coronavirus in the United States, a group of activists are asking the Joe Biden administration to honor the memory of more than half a million of Americans who have died from covid-19. Activist groups are organizing individual events and will come together for a virtual vigil on the so-called Covid Memorial Day. “We must respond to this crisis according to its scale,” Kristin Urquiza, co-founder of Marked By Covid, told CNN. “The commemoration and recognition of our losses cannot wait any longer. The recognition of the federal government is essential ”. Rose River Memorial, one of the groups that hosts events, is collecting a handmade felt red rose for every American who has died of COVID-19. The rose is the national flower of the United States. When the group has enough roses to represent each life lost, they will combine community projects to create a giant art installation. “We are on the way, but there...
    A self-styled Black Lives Matter activist found himself in the midst of the charge on Capitol Hill — although he says he was just there to document the moment and "see the truth." John Sullivan, founder of Insurgence USA, was detained and questioned by police on Wednesday following his participation in the unrest. Sullivan founded his group in 2020 "in response to the Gorge [sic] Floyd tragedy", and says it is committed to "racial justice and police reform." "We then set out to empower and uplifting [sic] black and indigenous voices. We want to build local powers to enable the community to intervene in violence enacted by the state and government vigilantes," a statement on the Insurgence USA website reads. "Our mission is the unification of our nation because a people united will never be divided." But Sullivan's appearance at the demonstrations meant to halt the Electoral College certification of president-elect Joe Biden's victory was only meant to document what he believed was a pivotal moment in American history, he said in several interviews. “For me,...

    Facebook announced Thursday that it had removed four disinformation operations since it released its September coordinated inauthentic behavior report, including more than 200 accounts it said were connected to Turning Point USA. The social media platform "removed 200 Facebook accounts, 55 Pages and 76 Instagram accounts for violating our policy against coordinated inauthentic behavior" focused "primarily on domestic US audiences," according to Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebook's head of security policy. Facebook said that the operation was likely established in 2018 and continued through 2020. "Although the people behind this network attempted to conceal their identities and coordination, our investigation linked this activity to Rally Forge, a US marketing firm, working on behalf of Turning Point USA and Inclusive Conservation Group. Rally Forge is now banned from Facebook," Gleicher wrote. Turning Point told the Washington Examiner that Facebook's claim is incorrect. "Facebook’s blog post in question was in reference to a project for Turning Point ACTION, a 501c4 and an entirely separate entity. The mistake has been flagged with Facebook’s communication team," a spokesperson said. "Turning Point ACTION...

    With the ban on WeChat and TikTok apps in the United States starting Sunday, US President Donald Trump widens the battlefield with China, targeting its most innovative companies. – What is WeChat? – Known as Weixin in Mandarin, WeChat has more than 1 billion active users per month. These are mostly Chinese, even though the application is available in almost twenty languages. It is an instant messaging application launched in 2011, which offers similar functionalities to the American WhatsApp (exchange of messages, photos and videos). Since then, WeChat has expanded its range of services and is currently an ecosystem: possibility of paying by phone (online or in stores through a barcode system), news service, hotel or travel reservations, video games or online finance. Its owner is Tencent, one of the Chinese technology giants and the undisputed leader in video games for smartphones. First Asian group to be valued at more than $ 500 billion (about € 421.5 billion) in 2017, Tencent competed with Facebook in terms of market weight. The Hong Kong-based private group is...
    In a remote corner of Panama, an indigenous community about which little is known is for the second time this year the subject of an investigation by the authorities. In the mountainous region of Ngäbe Buglé, more than 350 kilometers from the capital, a grave with seven bodies was discovered at the beginning of the year, most of them children who died as part of the rites of a religious sect. “At this time, neither the sex nor the number of people (found in the grave) can be determined,” municipal representative Azael Tugrí told local media. According to the official, the uniformed men had to go into the mountains for 10 hours to reach the place, given the difficult access to the area where the indigenous community lives. The Ngäbe Buglé ethnic group, in whose region these events occurred, is the largest indigenous group in Panama and, according to the local press, in the last year it has been shaken by the activity in its communities of Christian sects. What is known about the pit? According...

After consecutive New Year’s Six appearances by the Central Florida Golden Knights, the Memphis Tigers won the American Athletic Conference. They played the Penn State Nittany Lions in the Cotton Bowl last season. Their head coach, Mike Norvell, parlayed that into the head coaching job at Florida State University. With Memphis, Southern Methodist, Central Florida and Cinncinati in the fold, the AAC is the class of the Group of 5. That does not mean they do not play good ball elsewhere in the Group of 5. The Appalachian State Mountaineers defeated both North and South Carolina last season and the Boise State Broncos defeated the Florida State Seminoles. The Group of 5 representative will come from either the Sun Belt, AAC or Conference USA this season. Both the MAC and Mountain West have canceled football this fall due to COVID-19....

    Seoul, Aug 1 (EFE) .- The leader of the South Korean Christian sect Shincheonji, Lee Man-hee, 88, was arrested today for allegedly trying to obstruct efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus when that group became the epicenter of the main outbreak that has affected South Korea. A court in Suwon, a city south of Seoul, issued the arrest warrant against Lee on Saturday, considering that he forwarded to the health authorities false documents about the number of participants in the various religious ceremonies held by the sect in February, when Shincheonji shot the number of infections in the Asian country. He is also accused of embezzling some 5.6 billion won (about 4.9 million euros / $ 4.6 million) in group funds and organizing religious events without authorization between 2015 and 2019, the South Korean news agency Yonhap reported. . The court has considered in writing that several of the charges have been “substantiated” and that there is a risk that Lee will destroy evidence justifying his arrest. The prosecution requested his arrest last Tuesday, a request that the...

The head of the Community Executive, Ursula von der Leyen, stressed that this agreement is an “important first step” in the framework of the European strategy for the coronavirus vaccine. “There will be more news soon,” the German has predicted in a...
    Charlie Kirk probably saying some racist thing about a "culture war." Turning Point USA is the collegiate alt-right racist organization that has brought you Charlie Kirk. Kirk is something of a Trump youth leader, best known for dressing the part of someone serious while saying the same bogus racist anti-immigration b.s. older white supremacists like Trump and Steve Bannon say. Not unlike their elected officials, Turning Point USA—which was started by Bill Montgomery—is wrong about 98% of the time, and when they’re wrong, Turning Point USA is spectacularly wrong 100% of the time. Sadly, Montgomery died on Tuesday from complications due to the coronavirus. Kirk posted a tribute to Montgomery on Twitter and told Politico that “I can’t put into words how saddened I am by the death of my dear friend Bill Montgomery.” After that, as people began clipping and sending Kirk and his Turning Point USA social media team all of the anti-mask memes and conspiracy theory-laden statements they made about the global pandemic, Turning Point USA began deleting old posts.

    Brussels / Vienna, Jul 21 (EFE) .- Consolidated after the pulse that they maintained with the largest partners of the European Union (EU) in the marathon summit concluded today, the countries called “frugal” are preparing to continue their cooperation in the future, as a new counterweight to the Paris-Berlin axis after the “Brexit”. This was made clear on Tuesday by the Austrian federal chancellor, the conservative Sebastian Kurz, describing the formation of the aforementioned group as “quite historical”, made up of his country, the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark, and which Finland later joined. “The cooperation of ‘the frugal’ has not ended today, but will continue,” said the head of the government of the Alpine republic from Brussels, reports the Austrian agency APA. “This is the most important point, because I think it is quite historic,” Kurz said, highlighting the most relevant results of the summit that managed to set the multi-annual community budget and an unprecedented financial rescue from the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
