ICYMI: El Tráfico

LAFC squeezed past their local rivals LA Galaxy to win this week’s El Tráfico derby 2-1, rising to fifth in the MLS western conference.

#ICYMI: 14 seconds

This week’s international football included a couple of record-breaking feats – such as the fastest international goal scored from kick-off (Austria’s opener against Slovakia after six seconds) and this mess of an own-goal from Latvia’s Mārcis Ošs who bundled the ball into his own net 14 seconds after kick-off against Liechtenstein. This is the fastest own goal in international football’s history and we hope to live long enough to see it surpassed. History making.
