Stuff. And things.

I BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE WON

ENGLAND:

It's official - the little boy who always dreamed of playing for Manchester United has gone to Turkey. Reportedly without his knowledge, at least at first.

David de Gea will report to Manchester United's preseason training. No word whether he'll complete said training.

Etienne Capoue has become Watford's record signing.

England's third place finish in the Women's World Cup will hopefully spur English interest - from both fans and sponsors- in the women's game.

WORLD:

The US won the Women's World Cup yesterday in resounding fashion, a 5-2 win over Japan that wasn't as close as the score indicated.

Carli Lloyd, of course, was the story of this game, becoming the second person in the history of the World Cup - men's or women's - to score a hat trick in a final. The first? Geoff Hurst in 1966. Oh, and the goal to complete the hat trick? No big deal, just a strike from the half way line.

The Gold Cup starts tomorrow, with the US men taking on Honduras to kick off their tournament. The women did their part, men's team - now it's your turn. Here's the schedule - all games are on the Fox family of sports networks.

MLS:

Andrea Pirlo is joining Manchester City West and will be patrolling the basepaths at Yankee Stadium starting July 26th.

Kaka scored a goal, then got sent off, in Orlando City's 1-1 draw with Real Salt Lake.

Both the Timbers and the Sounders left it late, but both collected all three points yesterday - Portland in a physical, horribly refereed game, and Seattle with a late winner in a scrappy game after DC United's Fabian Espindola was sent off in the 27th minute for elbowing Zach Scott.
