We know what happened in Manchester. What about elsewhere?

ENGLAND:

Reports that Adnan Januzaj has more diving fouls than goals have been debunked. Sort of.

Angel di Maria is, to be charitable, not doing well at Manchester United.

Was it more that Michael Oliver had a good game, or that Manchester United had a bad game? Or was it both?

WORLD:

Even FIFA officials say the World Cup should be pulled from Qatar. So of course the World Cup will be played in Qatar.

A German player apologizes to a goat.

Barcelona went back to the top of La Liga with a 6-1 mauling of Rayo Vallecano, in which Lionel Messi broke the Spanish record for number of hat-tricks in a career.

Parma was once one of the better teams in Italy. Now they have 140 players on their books and they're flat broke.

US:

David Beckham's attempts to locate an MLS team in Miami haven't worked, and he's running out of time.

The New York Cosmos will play an exhibition match against Cuba.

The MLS season started on Friday. I detest the Seattle Sounders, and I hate the fact that they won so easily. However. This is one of the prettiest goals I've seen in a while.

And last, Toronto beat Vancouver 3-1, and Jozy Altidore scored, which prompted the most amazing picture of the weekend:
