Also, Mexico beat Brazil for the second straight time in the U-17 World Cup. Something must happen to Brazilian footballers between the ages of 17 and 21, because those victories are a lot harder to come by when the big boys suit up.

Real Madrid, which perennially aspires to be the best club team on the globe, lost to Spanish Second Division B team (which essentially makes it the third division) Alcorcón 4-0 in a Copa del Rey contest. Kaká and Ronaldo didn't play, but who cares; you'd think 11 empty Real jerseys could play Alcorcón to a scoreless tie. This would be like the Giants' second team losing to a MAC squad by 21 points.
