It's difficult to rank Puskas and Di Stefano, purely because the idea of the #9 striker didn't exist in their heyday. It's definitely that pair plus Raul and Cristiano ranked ahead of Hugo Sanchez....

[quote]Amazing that FIFA still hasn't allowed Kosovo to become a member.
FIFA granted Kosovo membership in March.
But still it gave Gibraltar membership before an actual sovereign country recognized by over 100 independent states.

The only thing that the Fox really gets credit for in terms of its broadcasting of soccer is that it was the first to broadcast European soccer live and season long, and by that I mean the Premier League.
It was an important step, but they really haven't improved much since acquiring the rights t...

Portugal is always good for a loss to a terrible team in qualifying.

They should just give the Washington State flag wavers their due and have Pullman host Gameday for once, regardless of mediocrity of the Cougars.
Although ESPN was pretty implicit in the firing of Mike Leach.

The spread was eight points.
Down by 3, UTSA tried a forward lateral with seconds left. Arizona defense picks it up and runs it back for a TD. Touchdown doesn't count as the plays was dead immediately after the forward lateral....
