The captain of Toronto FC and the U.S. men’s national team had his every touch booed during TFC’s 0-0 Conference Final first leg draw at Columbus’ Mapfre Stadium on Tuesday and was asked afterwards about the uproar regarding the Crew’s possible relocation to a city over 1,200 miles away. On the other hand, you can’t deny the fact that things here have really fallen behind in terms of the atmosphere in the stadium, the quality of the stadium, what it’s like to play here,” Bradley said.

- Manchester United's Paul Pogba joins Mesut Ozil in new Adidas advert
Thu, 23 Nov 2017 09:43:00 GMT After retiring the line a couple of years ago, Adidas have revived their iconic boot with a brand new design for 2018. The Predator 18+ retains the classic original colourway -- black, red and white -- and the rubbery ridges across the toe designed to allow maximum control of the ball, while introducing several new features, like a laceless fastening system. As ever, Adidas launched their new Predator with a flashy campaign which saw Paul Pogba and Mesut Ozil team up on screen for the first time, if only very briefly. Whether or not "Agent P" was able to work his persuasive magic during the video shoot and convince the German playmaker to ditch the Emirates for Old Trafford remains to be seen.

- SuperSport ready for Mazembe challenge in CAF Confederation Cup second leg
Fri, 24 Nov 2017 11:19:00 GMT South African side SuperSport United are full of confidence going into the second leg of their CAF Confederation Cup final against Democratic Republic of Congo giants Tout Puissant Mazembe on Saturday night, even if it is the visitors who hold the advantage on the scoreboard. Defending champions Mazembe head to Pretoria with a 2-1 lead after their home leg, a game in which SuperSport missed a host of chances, and were then lucky not to concede what appeared stonewall penalties on two occasions. SuperSport are aware of the significance of reaching a continental final for the first time in their history and having come this far, appear determined to finish the job. SuperSport coach Eric Tinkler, who lost the 2015 final with Orlando Pirates, says lifting the Confederation Cup would be more of an achievement than winning the domestic Premier League given the hardships that his side have come up against on their travels.
