Cristiano Ronaldo made history on Saturday in World Cup Qualifying against Hungary. After scoring a sweet goal in the first half , he scored an even better one in the second half with a brilliant free kick. And that goal was his 70th international strike, joining the 70-goal club for European players, which also includes just Miroslav Klose and Ferenc Puskas. Here is the goal: What a way to get it. It’s tough enough to go far post, but to do it from that distance is absurd.
An already banged-up U.S. soccer team lost four more players heading into Tuesday's World Cup qualifier at Panama, including two starters from Friday night's 6-0 victory against Honduras. Midfielder Sebastian Lletget, defenders John Brooks and Michael Orozco, and forward Jordan Morris were dropped by U.S. coach Bruce Arena, who added midfielder Paul Arriola on Saturday.
BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Rarely has a scoreless stalemate in front of the home fans tasted so sweet. But 11 years of nothing but losing will do that to a team. Andorra’s 0-0 draw with fellow minnow Faroe Islands in World Cup qualifying on Saturday ended its run of 58 competitive defeats. It was the first point in qualifying for the Pyrenees mountain principality, population 80,000, since a scoreless draw with Finland in 2005. Faroe Islands finished with 10 men after Joan Edmundsson was booked a second time with 15 minutes to play.
