Mendes directed James Bond film. It has been widely reported the British superspy would battle a corrupt, global organization hell bent on world domination. FIFA is proud to continue the great tradition of screen icons such as Dr. No, Jaws and Goldfinger. This will be FIFA’s first collaboration with Mendes.

After over a month of speculation, Americans are finally admitting the U.S. Women’s soccer team kinda blew it in the World Cup. On July 17th the US Women played a thrilling match against Japan losing 2-2 during penalty kicks. Most major media outlets politely congratulated Japan and acknowledged the US team’s heroic effort; but after more than a month, everyone pretty much thinks they dropped the soap.

Hope Solo Catches Her Dinner

“Sure second place is good, but they were up by a goal. Twice!” said Alan Gibbons, a bartender from Albany. Added Michaela Smith: “Three missed PK’s? Three! It’s like they didn’t wanna win!” Many Americans still admit Hope Solo was

After winning the Olympic bid and pursuing the 2014 start of the Tour de France and 2018 and 2022 World Cup, Qatar is on a roll. However, the United States agreed to ensure Qatar gets the 2022 World Cup if the Arab nation takes the WNBA as well. Qatar has given no response but has until late tomorrow to decide if it will risk having a dunkless, poorly attended league in order to receive the exciting, thrilling World Cup.

Qatar admitted that initially it had no desire to watch “sound fundamentals” but could not resist the idea of having even more events inside its boundaries.* Qatar allegedly inquired the availability of the Paraolympics and Great Outdoor Games.
