Key Facts Netherlands right-back Denzel Dumfries’ goal in the 80th minute sealed the Dutch team’s victory—the U.S. team has not advanced to the quarterfinals since 2002. The men’s team, which failed to make the last installment of the tournament in 2018, had been trailing for the majority of the match, although its offense was able to maintain possession of the ball, preventing the Dutch team from running away in a blow-out. Haji Wright, who plays for the Turkish team Antalyaspor, cut the Netherlands’ lead in half with a goal in the 76th minute, although the Netherlands quickly pulled away with a third goal four minutes later. … [Read more...] about U.S. Men’s Team Eliminated From World Cup In 3-1 Loss To Netherlands

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Judging by the amount of archival music or reissues that came out in 2022, you would be hard-pressed to complain about the lack of variety. From classic rock to pop to alternative rock to hip-hop, there is definitely something for the most discerning and sophisticated music fan. Usually featuring unreleased tracks along with the classic hits, deluxe packaging and detailed liner notes, music reissues are usually the perfect all-in-one gifts and proof that there's something special about owning or receiving music in physical and tangible form compared to a stream or download.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin About 12,000 people attended the KSI vs. Logan Paul rematch last month at Staples Center. Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn said the DAZN telecast compelled more viewers to tune in than Andy Ruiz’s upset victory against heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. Both YouTube stars were paid $900,000, and it seemed like—despite the lack of boxing skill and the sideshow nature of the entire event—just about everybody won (except for Paul, who lost a split decision). But apparently, not many people in the U.K., where KSI was born and raised, were interested enough to purchase the fight on PPV. According to World Boxing News , which got confirmation from the Broadcasters' Audience Research Board, only 216,000 people purchased the PPV on Sky Sports. While American audiences could tune in to the DAZN streaming service for either $19.99 per month or $99 for the year to watch Paul and KSI—who have a combined 40 million YouTube … [Read more...] about The KSI Vs.
