Mexico beat USA


Wall's well that ends well: The news that Donald Trump will be the 45th president of the United States didn't sit well with those south of the border, but perhaps made Mexico's 2-1 win over the USMNT all the sweeter

Robben dive sinks fuming Mexico

The Netherlands progressed to the quarter-finals of the World Cup in controversial circumstances on Sunday, as Arjen Robben's apparent, and flamboyant, dive resulted in a clinically dispatched penalty that sent Mexico crashing out late on.

El Tri had taken the lead in Fortaleza through a long-range screamer from Giovani dos Santos, but a volley from Wesley Sneijder followed promptly by Klaas-Jan Huntelaar's spot-kick completed a stunning turnaround.

But Robben has been harshly criticised for his theatrics and even admitted to diving in the match - though not for the penalty!

Charismatic Mexico boss Miguel Herrera, meanwhile, was apoplectic after the final whistle: "[The referee] put us out of the next stage... [Robben] dived three times, and the referee should have booked him the first time."

Football's biggest names land in Brazil ahead of Confederations Cup

With the World Cup under a year away, host nation Brazil stage the 2013 Confederations Cup with the rest of the world set to get a glimpse of what the country has to offer.

The hosts kick off proceedings on Saturday evening against Japan, with the likes of Oscar, David Luiz, Hulk and Neymar all expected to be in action.

And if that game alone does not boast enough big names, Spain have a star cast including Juan Mata, Fernando Torres and Andres Iniesta, Italy have Mario Balotelli and Andrea Pirlo, and Uruguay boast Edinson Cavani and, of course, Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Mexico pave London with gold to break Brazilian hearts

Mexico stunned Brazil on Saturday to secure Olympic gold as Oribe Peralta's double sealed a 2-1 victory over the tournament favourites.
Peralta fired Mexico ahead after 28 seconds following a mistake from Manchester United full-back Rafael before the striker doubled his tally in the 70th minute.

Hulk's late goal set the stage for a late Brazilian revival but new Chelsea signing Oscar spurned a glorious chance to take the tie to extra time, meaning Mano Menezes' side had to settle for silver.

10 things to expect from the Champions League final between Barcelona & Manchester United

Ahead of Saturday night's big season finale between the two European giants, Goal.com light-heartedly presents what will take place on and off the pitch at Wembley Stadium

10) Xavi Hernandez records more passes at Wembley than Michael Carrick...in his career...including friendlies...even school ones.
9) Dani Alves goes to ground after a particularly bad foul by Paul Scholes. The referee sends off Scholes but also books Alves. When the full-back tries to claim he didn't dive, the referee points out: "Of course you dived... the tackle was on Busquets."

8) A minute later Wayne Rooney is clean through on goal, but suddenly stops running after hearing a whistle...blown by suspended Barcelona reserve goalkeeper Jose Pinto in the crowd. The striker is promptly sent off.
7) Sir Alex Ferguson is furious about the red card and the fake whistle. “Typical cheating Catalans,” he is overheard muttering to his press officer after forgetting to switch off his microphone.
6) Sky Sports' Jamie ‘never heard of Pato’ Redknapp also blasts Barcelona’s sportsmanship. “None of this foreign diving and cheating goes on in our league,” he snipes to co-pundits Steven Gerrard and Didier Drogba.
5) After Pele remarks that Javier Hernandez is the “next Lionel Messi”, the Mexican suffers an inexplicable drop in form - failing to score another goal for three years, and retiring from the game at the age of just 25.

4) Messi scores a stunning hat-trick, including a slalom past the entire Man Utd team, but some Real Madrid fans still proclaim Cristiano Ronaldo as the best player in the world due to his 53 goals against Almeria and Levante.
3) An unnamed Premier League footballer, who is married with children, is denied the 33rd title of his career after coming on as an 85th minute substitute. In unrelated news, Ryan Giggs plays the last five minutes as he misses out on a third Champions League crown.
2) Giggs tries to match the heroics of Manchester United legend George Best. Like Best, he stars in a Man Utd team at Wembley in the European Cup final. Like Best, he attempts to score by sneaking up from behind Victor Valdes. And just like Best, he goes home with a Miss World contestant afterwards!
1) With Barcelona cruising to a 3-0 win, the fourth official indicates four minutes injury time, sending Sir Alex Ferguson into a rage. "At least 47 minutes should have been added," he roars, as he spits out his chewing gum.
