'A flag on the play' -- something soccer could learn from football
From Saturday's FA Cup game in England: Leicester's Andrej Kramaric gets clean through the Tottenham defense, ball at his feet, only goalkeeper Michel Vorm to beat. As Kramaric tries to dribble around him, Vorm makes a slide tackle. Something goalkeepers are not very good at (if you doubt that, take a look at the video of Manuel Neuer's recent attempt -- this one from a keeper who is widely hailed as the best in the world).

"What else should he have done? In a few years' time players will be elbowing each other out of the way to go there. MLS will grow a great deal and not just in terms of chatter. I know Giovinco well and he's not going there just to earn money. It's a great opportunity, one as a player I would've grabbed. I missed out on an overseas job, as that would've been a formative experience."

-- Italy national team coach Antonio Conte on 27-year-old Sebastian Giovinco, who has 21 caps for Italy, joining Toronto FC. (Tuttosport via Football Italia)
