Headlines
Orlando City manager Adrian Heath is leaving the club after the two mutually parted ways. Heath has been the only manager in club history. He began his tenure when the club played in Austin. He went with them to Central Florida and oversaw the transition into MLS. Current assistant Bobby Murphy will team up with Orlando City B head coach Anthony Pulis (no, not that Tony Pulis) until a permanent replacement can be found.

Argentina's federation is in a lot of hot water thanks to corruption that makes FIFA look clean by comparison. After their manager quit, it was unclear if they would even end up sending a squad to the Olympics. They have named an 18 man squad for the event, though, with West Ham's Manuel Lanzini leading the way.

Lionel Messi has been convicted of tax fraud by Spanish courts. He was sentenced to a 21 month suspended prison sentence, but will not actually serve the time thanks to a statute in the Spanish legal system that allows him to serve it as probation. He will, however, have to pay the back taxes and a fine of €2 million. He plans to appeal the ruling.
