"History repeats itself" is something that the US team is trying to avoid as it goes against Costa Rica for the Group A of Copa America 2016 on Tuesday.
The two teams will go head to head at Soldier Field in Chicago Illinois starting 7 p.m. USA forward Clint Dempsey told ESPN that his team is making sure that they win the match against the Costa Rica after the home team lost to Colombia last Friday.
"It's a must-win situation, backs against the wall," Dempsey noted. "It's going to be a difficult game. They know they got a result that puts them in position to get out of the group." more >>

Following the death of cultural icon Muhammad Ali, Franklin Graham is sharing his personal memories of the boxing champion who visited his father, evangelist Billy Graham, at the family's home in North Carolina.
"The world has lost a champion. Muhammad Ali was considered by many as the greatest boxer of all time. His career began during a difficult period in our country with the racial tensions of the 1960s and the Vietnam War. His outspoken positions caused him to be both loved and hated by some," Graham wrote in a Facebook post about Ali, who died on June 3 at age 74, following a bout of respiratory illness, connected to complications with Parkinson's disease, which he battled for decades.
"I had the privilege of meeting him on several occasions, and he visited at my parents' home in Montreat, North Carolina. Muhammad Ali's father brought him to visit my father Billy Graham because he was concerned over Ali's faith in Islam and was afraid that his son had been led astray," Franklin Graham revealed. more >>

While the currently ranked no. 1 team in the FIFA ranking wasn't able to bring home the titles on those two tournaments, Gerardo "Tata" Martino's squad is hoping that third time's finally the charm. However, standing in their way is a familiar foe.
Argentina and Chile are going to face off anew in what would be a rematch of last year's Copa America finals. The highly anticipated contest will take place at the Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The start time will be around 10 p.m. ET. more >>
The Golden State Warriors bagged Game 1 of this year's NBA Finals with a wide lead versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. Now that Game 2 is here, will they do it again or will the Cavs take it from here?
For Sunday night's game, the Warriors are still favored to win and take a 2-0 lead in the Finals series, Bleacher Report noted. They showed great teamwork during the first game with a 104-89 win even though star players Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson did not perform as expected.
