#GameDayEve 2016 FC Montreal Edition

by Marissa Blackman

The 2016 Wilmington Hammerheads FC campaign continues tomorrow with a match at home against FC Montreal. The two clubs are separated by four points, and FC Montreal has completed one less match than the Hammerheads. Although FC Montreal's season is certainly getting off to a slow start, the season is still too fresh to label the club as easy competition. Wilmington Hammerheads FC has had strong moments throughout each game this season, but, with one of each possible result, it is also too early in the season to predict undoubted victory for Wilmington. Here are some stats about both clubs:

FC Montreal sits in thirteenth place with two losses in two games. Although the Canadian club has played different rosters in its two games, three players, Janouk Charbonneau, Kyle Fisher, and Michael Salazar, have all played for the full length of both matches. Two different goalies, Maxime Crepeau and David Paulmin, have played for ninety minutes in each match. FCM has only tallied one goal this season, and it was scored in the first half by Ballou Jean Yves Tabla . As the tables currently stand, FC Montreal could jump up to eleventh place with a victory tomorrow.

Wilmington Hammerheads FC sits in seventh place with four points from three games. The Carolinian club has registered one win, one draw, and one loss. In three games, the Hammerheads have established a trend of scoring the most in the first half and conceding the most in the second half. Ashani Fairclough, Logan Miller, and Bruno Perone have each scored once for Wilmington.

So far, neither of the two teams have been defeated by more than one goal. Will one of these eastern conference club make a statement victory tomorrow afternoon?

Começando na Europa e se espalhando pelo mundo, hoje, o futebol é o esporte coletivo mais praticado em todo o mundo. Tendo objetivos e regras iguais, o futebol se diferencia de lugar para lugar na sua forma de jogar, torcer e gerenciar. Entre a Europa e a América Latina, onde o futebol é mais popular, há significantes diferenças, tendo como principal referência nesse continente, o Brasil, o país do futebol. A primeira diferença e mais perceptível é a tática e a forma de jogar. No futebol europeu, a velocidade durante a partida inteira é algo natural. Há também características gerais como o costume de manter a linha de quatro no meio de campo e, a estratégia de recomposição do time inteiro, o jogo mais centrado, objetivo e calculado. Já o futebol brasileiro, conforme o tempo passa, os técnicos vêm aproximando a tática de seus times ao futebol europeu – principalmente depois da copa de 1982. Mas em sua essência, o futebol brasileiro sempre se caracterizou por lances com dri…

Kaleemullah Khan's Story

by Meesha Imran

Kaleemullah Khan is a Pakistani footballer who was born in Chaman, Pakistan on September 20th, 1992 and currently plays as a striker for Tulsa Roughnecks FC. 
His international career began when he signed a five-month contract with a club in Kyrgyzstan named FC Dordoi. His performance was so exceptional that the club offered him a two-year contract worth Rs10 million. Khan was named Player of the Year soon after he finished as the highest scorer in the league and also won the Kyrgyz Cup and Super Cup.

All of these early accolades prompted immediate interest and there were invitations for trials from China and Iceland, although his agents had something else in mind. They arranged a one-month trial with USL side Sacramento Republic FC. The USL club put forth a condition; in order for Kaleem to complete the trial, he had to rescind his contract with Dordoi. 

On the first day of his try-out, he twisted his ankle and was advised to rest for a week. Although thoughts of return…
