It's been a great year for English football, with several key matches still at stake, while one of the Serie A's greatest rivalries is pushed to the forefront.
From Olivier Giroud's bicycle kick to Mason Mount's signature goal against Porto, this is every goal Chelsea have scored en route to a Champions League semi-final showdown with Real Madrid.
CARY, N.C. (AP) — Jamil Roberts scored in the 60th minute and Marshall advanced to the NCAA College Cup title game with a 1-0 victory over North Carolina on Friday. Oliver Semmle made five saves for the Thundering Herd, who will face the winner of late game between Indiana and Pittsburgh in Monday’s championship match. Marshall eliminated top-seeded Clemson on penalties and then downed Georgetown in the quarterfinals en route to its first semifinal appearance. Roberts' goal came on Marshall's first shot of the match, and was his fourth goal of the season. The Tar Heels outshot the Thundering Herd 11-1. North Carolina was making its ninth overall appearance in the semifinals. The Tar Heels won national titles in 2001 and 2011. It was the first meeting between the two teams, neither of which were seeded in the tournament. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press
SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Sounders will be without starting goalkeeper Stefan Frei for at least a month due to a knee injury he suffered in a victory over San Jose. Seattle coach Brian Schmetzer said Friday that Frei did not suffer damage to the ACL in his left knee and will not require surgery. Schmetzer called it a sprained knee and was hopeful Frei would miss only four to six weeks. Frei was injured late in Seattle's 1-0 win Wednesday over San Jose. He landed awkwardly while attempting to make a save and was down for several minutes before being helped to the locker room while putting no weight on the leg. Out of substitutes, the Sounders placed winger Alex Roldan in goal for the closing minutes. Roldan made a pair of saves to help Seattle secure the victory. The news wasn't as good for midfielder Jordy Delem, who suffered a torn ACL early in the match and will be out for the season, Schmetzer said. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press
