The demeanor of Jose Mourinho this last season is a complicated matter, and there are lots to talk about. Everybody knows that a short while after Mourinho signed his contract with the Manchester United, echoes and rumors about the advancement of a book that was soon to be published after the season began were spread by the European media.

Roughly explained, football is a collective sport, in which two teams of 11 players face each other in a field.

A new era on European football has begun in 2018. UEFA Nations League has started this year, this competition has come to erase those tedious and boring “friendly” matches, that barely raised eyebrows among football fans, with a long-term, full of excitement tournament.
Ever since the first World Cup was celebrated back in 1930, this event has been considered a top sports competition that the world gets to celebrate every 4 years.

This year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup saw more mainstream coverage and general excitement surrounding it than perhaps any women’s football event of the past hundred years. Whilst countries like the USA have historically been lightyears ahead in their appreciation of women’s football, it’s taken other parts of the world like Europe and South America some time to catch up. However, it looks like 2019 might have been the year to kick off a global love for the women’s beautiful game, with teams from France, the Netherlands and England giving the US a run for their money in the finals.
