Kalil is facing an uphill battle winning over voters faithful to Cruzeiro, Belo Horizonte's other big team, after an old video surfaced of him ...More

There are a total of 69 U.S. players in the top five leagues (Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Serie A and Bundesliga), second-tier leagues in those five leagues and the other first tier leagues in Europe. There are other U.S. players in lower leagues, but ...More
