France Favored at Home in Euro Final

By Charles Jay There is still a lot of healing taking place in France, and it is perhaps fitting that the city that was haunted by terrorist attacks back in November might be the site for some of that healing to occur.

France Hopes Home Cooking Works vs. Germany

By Charles Jay France has not beaten Germany in a major tournament since 1958. And as recently as the World Cup two years ago, they were vanquished by the eventual champions in the quarter-finals.

Euro 2016 chaos to continue Saturday with round of 16 through Monday

By The Rex Factor The writing has been on the wall since Tuesday evening for these 2016 European Championships – the cut from 24 to 16 teams for the knockout round is overshadowed by a ludicrous and asinine turn of events that put all of the longtime continental powers on one side of the bracket.

For USA soccer, still a lot of ground to be made up

By The Rex Factor Normally, I’m dead set against third-place matches in major tournaments. What is there to gain for the two semifinal losers to compete for a so-called bronze medal?
