Nani scored the winner three minutes from time as he helped his team to a 3-2 win over the team from Atlanta.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé has still not made it clear whether or not he will be playing fr the French club next season amid reports that he could be joining Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid this summer.

Brazilian football icon Kaka has told compatriot Neymar what he needs to do to win the elusive Ballon d'Or Award. Kaka talked about Neymar and the award in an interview with Arenasbt in his native Brazil. According to him, Neymar needs a collective awards for him to win the best individual player award.

Kaka is delighted that an individual award like the Ballon d'Or is now linked with winning collective awards. The ex-Real Madrid, AC Milan and Orlando City player said football is a collective sport and it is right for individual and collective awards to link together.

Just like the other players, Neymar has been a victim of the Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo era. Messi and Ronaldo have won the majority of the individual awards on offer for the better part of the last two decades. It could be argued that Neymar is the best player outside the duo of Ronaldo and Messi that's yet to win the Ballon d'Or.


From all indications, Premier League club Arsenal have emerged as one of the clubs expected to be the busiest in this coming summer transfer window. The London club have a lot of work to do when it comes to transfers and they are expected to already start sorting their summer transfers even before the opening of the window if they want to show some seriousness about finishing in a respectable position on the log next season.

Not only are they expected to sign a lot of players this summer, but they are also expected to let go of a couple of stars from the club who have not been at their very best for a while now. While they have started to be linked with a couple of signings already, they have also been tipped to let go of some of the deadwood in the club as manager Mikel Arteta continues his rebuild this summer in what is expected to be a major squad overhaul.


West Ham United are reportedly one of the clubs interested in signing Canadian national team striker CyleLarin ahead of this summer's transfer window. The interest of the Hammers in Larin was revealed by local Turkish media portal Sabah. Apart from East London club West Ham United, relegation threatened West Brom are also keen on the 25-year-old attacker.

Bayern Munich striker is considered to be one of the best strikers in his generation and probably does not get as much praise as he deserves. The Poland international striker has always proven to be a top striker in the years he has played for both former club Borussia Dortmund and current side Bayern Munich.

Jesus says Manchester City need something extra to win the Champions League

Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus believes the Cityzens need the extra something in order to go on to win the Champions League title. The Mancunian giants have not gone beyond the quarter-final of the elite competition under manager Pep Guardiola while they have reached the last four on just one occasion in the Sheikh Mansour era.

In a recent interview with Champions Journal, Jesus said: “The truth is that to win the Champions League you need an extra something – and this team has been maturing. When I’m in the tunnel waiting to go onto the field and I hear the song, I get very emotional. I remember my past, when I wanted to be a football player. I would sometimes skip school to watch some games – I hope my mother doesn’t see this interview! To be able to play today, to make my mark in this competition, makes me very happy.”


Brazilian football legend Kaka has named the best manager he worked with during his playing career as he snubbed the usually controversial Jose Mourinho. In a chat with Sky Sports, Kaka picked current Everton boss Carlo Ancelottiahead of the Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho as he revealed that he learnt more when he was playing under Carlo Ancelotti at AC Milan.

Kaka won his one and only Ballon d'Or Award while Carlo Ancelotti was his manager. The Brazilian midfielder won the Ballon d'Or Award in 2007.


Brazilian football icon Kaka has disclosed the best striker of the ball amongst his former teammates in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports. According to him, there was none better than Roberto Carlos. Kaka also mentioned Adriano who had a powerful shot in his left leg. Just like ex-Inter Milan striker Adriano, Roberto Carlos was predominantly a left footer.

Kaka left his mark on the footballing world during his career which came to an end in the United States in the colours of Major League Soccer (MLS) club Orlando City three years ago. The 38-year-old played for just four teams including boyhood club Sao Paulo where he started his career as a youth player. He was in the youth teams at Sao Paulo for six years from 1994 to 2000 before he made the step up to join the first team. Kaka is one of six players to win the FIFA World Cup, the Champions League and the Ballon d'Or Award. No active player can match that record.


Reinier Jesus, the 18-year-old attacking midfielder, wishes to be known for his qualities rather than compared to Kaka, the 2007 Ballon d'Or winner.

Reinier, who plays for the German club, Borussia Dortmund, on loan from Real Madrid, has rejected comparisons with the Brazilian star who won the Ballon d'Or with AC Milan in 2007. In January 2020, the 18-year-old came to Europe in Real Madrid from Flamengo in Brazil. He completed a two-year loan move to Dortmund after failing to make an impression on the first team in Real Madrid.
