Soccer Round-Up

Davies to DCU

Charlie Davies hasn't played first-team soccer since 2009 when a car crash derailed his promising career. He had just completed a successful Confederations Cup performance in which the United States up-ended Spain and narrowly lost in the final to Brazil. The crash killed one passenger and left Davies crucially injured. Since then, Davies has been on a remarkable road to recovery. Its latest turn has landed him in our nation's capital playing for bitter Union rivals. It's impossible not to cheer for the guy at this point, so here is wishing Charlie all the best with his new club.

Champions League Soccer Returns

Tottenham defeated AC Milan and Valencia drew Shalke yesterday, while today's lineup features the marquee match of the round of 16.  Arsenal takes on Barcelona this afternoon in a rematch of last year's Champions League duel that saw Lionel Messi net 4 goals. Will Messi continue his brilliance, or can former Barca man Cesc Fabregas turn the tables for Arsenal?

Check out a video highlight reel of last year's match below, compliments of Soccer by Ives.
