ESPN, Univision, beIN Sports, and Fox Deportes came together to bring these matches to English and Spanish speaking audiences alike in support of disaster relief efforts for the recent hurricanes and earthquakes to hit the Southern US, Mexico, and the Caribbean. They are holding a memorabilia auction on Ebay, with the proceeds going to the Red Cross as well as calling for individual donations as these midweek Mexican matches play out.

Diego Costa has finalized his move to Atletico Madrid as he passed his medical with his new club. He will be eligible to join them on January 1, when the winter transfer window opens and Atletico Madrid's transfer ban ends.

National Anthem protests made their way to the soccer world last year by way of Megan Rapinoe, who knelt for the anthem before a couple NWSL games, prompting U.S. Soccer to adopt a policy that anyone representing the federation at the national team level is required to stand for the anthem. That policy is still in place, as Rapinoe, Becky Sauerbrunn, and other USWNT figures stayed in the locker room for the National Anthem before an NWSL match between Seattle Reign and FC Kanasa City on Sunday. I suppose we will see if there's any teeth to this policy with the USWNT playing some friendlies next month.

The MLS Players Union tweeted their support for anthem protesters over the weekend, so I suppose we may see something coming to the men's game in this country soon.

I support players who exercise their right to free speech before games, regardless of their cause. The men and women who some claim this practice disrespects died for many things, including a person's right to free speech, which includes anthem protests as far as I'm concerned.
