Inter Miami - HISTORY MADE

This week, Major League Soccer expansion team Inter Miami, funded by shareholder David Beckham, played the very first game in their history - a friendly versus Philadelphia Union.

They lost 2-1 in front of a small pack of fans at the Al Lang Stadium in St Petersburg, Florida.

However, the first goal in their history was scoring by new, marquee signing Rodolfo Pizarro, who had not actually been officially announced by the club when he found the back of the net to write his name into the club's history books.

Becks wasn't there to witness the historic fixture, as he was in London at one of wife Victoria's fashion shows. Busy man.


Bolton were defeated 2-0 at home by Wycombe at the weekend after conceding a goal in each half.

To go behind a minute before the break, Aristote Nsiala found himself in an awkward position on his own goalline attempting to hook the ball away following a cross from the right wing. Instead, he stoops down and bicycle kicks the ball right into his own face, with it subsequently bouncing over the line to make it 1-0.


Boca comfortably defeated Cordoba 4-0 away from home, in a match which took place 100 kilometres away from their home in Buenos Aires.

Even though it was so far away, they were still greeted by partisan Boca fans, who escorted the bus with a, quite intimidating, convoy of hundreds of motorcycles.
