We’re All United. Join us in The Fight Against Racism.
As our society seems to search for progress, the number of cases of racism in the beautiful game are not fading away. The AFR Team is delighted to be supporting Soccer Without Limits this weekend as they raise awareness of racism in football and help eradicate it once and for all.
We’re working with Street Football World to help spread the word and support their over 100 non-profit organizations in 60 countries around the world.
This weekend, we’re helping Soccer Without Limits host an event in Miami that will see some of the world’s biggest stars come together to help raise awareness for the Fight Against Racism. A Brazilian Footvolley tournament will take place on the beach pitting some of football’s most talented personalities against one another. Our goal is not only to bring awareness to the issue, but also to help eliminate it completely. With your support, we can make a difference, calling for unprecedented sanctions against racist fans and encouraging individuals to let them know that they’re not along. As Jerome Boateng told me this morning, “Enough is enough.”
I’m in. Are you?
Spread the word, please.
“I’m thankful to PSG for giving me the opportunity to continue but I feel now is the right time to finish my career, playing at the highest level. If you had told me as a young boy I would have played for and won trophies with my boyhood club Manchester United, proudly captained and played for my country over one hundred times and lined up for some of the biggest clubs in the world, I would have told you it was a fantasy. I’m fortunate to have realised those dreams.
To this day, one of my proudest achievements is captaining my country. I knew every time I wore the Three Lions shirt, I was not only following in a long line of great players, I was also representing every fan that cared passionately about their country. I’m honoured to represent England both on and off the pitch.
I wouldn’t have achieved what I have done today without my family. I’m grateful for my parents’ sacrifice, which made me realise my dreams. I owe everything to Victoria and the kids, who have given me the inspiration and support to play at the highest level for such a long period. I also want to thank Simon Fuller and his team for their continued support.
I want to thank all my team-mates, the great managers that I had the pleasure of learning from. I also want to thank the fans who have all supported me and given me the strength to succeed.
Nothing will ever completely replace playing the game I love, however I feel like I’m starting a new adventure and I’m genuinely excited about what lies ahead. I’m fortunate to have been given many opportunities throughout my career and now I feel it’s my time to give back..” - David Beckham

We’re not sure what’s better here: Lionel Messi’s magical goal, or Ray Hudson’s over-the-top call.
When Messi entered the match in the 59th minute, Barcelona was behind 1-0 to Athletic Bilbao. The little genius sparked a comeback when he scored the goal seen above to equalize. Then he assisted on Alexis Sanchez’s goal two short minutes later.
But Barcelona would blow it late, as they gave up an equalizer in the 90th minute, drawing 2-2 against Athletic Bilbao.
Barca’s title celebrations will have to wait just a little longer.
