Within the heart of thousands of Latino immigrants, lies the dream of one day being able to wear the United States soccer jersey.

LOS ANGELES -- In a city known for realizing and breaking dreams, Los Angeles is home to nearly 5 million Latinos, or about 9 percent of the Hispanic population of the United States, according to Pew Research.

Amid the melting pot, Alberto Villegas wanted to add something from his native Mexico after he immigrated to California. Villegas saw an opportunity in building soccer pitches, laying the foundation for a soccer academy.

"It was the biggest challenge for me. Not only coming into this...

How VAR can be improved: Education, speed, communication

The trials of the video assistant referee (VAR) in England have not yet brought the clarity its proponents were hoping for. While on the few occasions it has been used the correct decisions have broadly been reached, the disruption to the game and the additional confusion caused are enough to wonder whether the whole process is worthwhile.

However, it looks like VAR is here to stay: the indications are that it will be used in this summer's World Cup, with a decision due on Feb. 3, while its most...

Premier League's most exciting race this year? Avoiding relegation

As the fight to avoid relegation wages on, Paul Mariner and Ross Dyer take a look at the bottom half of the Premier League after week 27.

With a purring Manchester City turning the "title race" into a procession, the Premier League's most dramatic finale could be the scramble to avoid the drop.

Currently, 11 teams are still feeling twitchy with 11 games remaining. Even Bournemouth, as high as 10th place, are only five points clear of the relegation places. This might be a dogfight equally as tense as the one in 1994, when a Chelsea goal 36 seconds from the end of the season sent Sheffield United crashing out of the Premier League....

Rounding up the best and worst of the FA Cup action over the weekend.

At times this season it's been unclear whether Pep is wearing a scarf or the scarf is wearing him. Not satisfied with bettering Roberto Mancini's achievements with Manchester City, the Catalan seems determined to raise the stakes even when it comes to neckwear.

Esquire recently ran a piece claiming...
