Stay strong, Mo

From Gabriel Bachman (Brazil)
PSV's league win over VVV-Venlo last Sunday carried special weight: Mo Ihattaren, the club's talented 17-year-old midfielder, lost his father that same day. Though Ihattaren was not present at the Philips Stadion, he was in the hearts and minds of team-mates and fans, who offered touching tributes, as psvbrasil shares.

Vela scorches MLS record

From Larissa Ruiz (Mexico)
It was only one year ago that Atlanta United forward Josef Martinez eclipsed Major League Soccer's single-season scoring record by a staggering four goals, finding the net 31 times in 34 appearances. Enter LAFC superstar Carlos Vela, who netted a hat-trick on the final matchday of this season to set the new high mark at 34 goals. See every one of Carlitos' record-setting strikes, via lruizm.

All for Ali

From Ana Schuindt (Brazil)
Ali Krieger's story with the USA women's national team is one of perseverance. Despite a recent two-year period that saw the defender capped just once, she became an integral part of the Stars and Stripes' FIFA Women's World Cup™-winning squad this year. Now ana.schuindt brings us these images of the team commemorating Krieger's 100 appearances.

From surviving to thriving

From Adeniyi Bameyi (Nigeria)

But it took struggling to survive as a child to become the player he is today. This story shared by adeniyimustaphabameyi details just how difficult Osimhen's journey has been.
