Manchester City reclaim second place with win over Aston Villa

Manchester City reclaimed second place in the Premier League standings for a few hours at the very least with a hard earned 3-2 win against Aston Villa in a very entertaining error-prone contest.

City, who have now scored 15 goals in their last 5 home games, took the lead as early as the third minute as a howler from goalkeeper Brad Guzan gifted the ball to Sergio Aguero and the Argentine striker gleefully tucked the ball away into an empty net.


Champions League Semi-final Draw: Barcelona get Bayern, Juventus land Real Madrid

The UEFA Champions League semi-finals have a bit of an old school look about them this season with four of Europe's traditional powerhouses colliding in what should be a couple of epic contests.

Reigning champions Real Madrid have drawn Juventus in the semi-finals, while Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich will take on another team he built virtually from scratch, FC Barcelona. Interestingly, it will also be a bit of a home coming for Real's Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti, who was Juventus' head coach from 1999-2001.


USA hammer Mexico 3-0 in international friendly

The U.S. Under-23 Men's National Team defeated archrival Mexico 3-0, behind goals from Mario Rodriguez, Christian Dean and Jordan Morris at StubHub Center. The win was the second-straight for the U-23 MNT over its Mexico counterpart, after the USA won 2-0 in the last matchup between the two nations on Feb. 29, 2012.

In eight matches between the U.S. U-23 MNT and Mexico since 1992 (when Olympic soccer was first designated as an Under-23 tournament), the USA has gone 6-2-0, (4-0-0 on U.S. soil) including tonight's win. U.S. goalkeeper Cody Cropper, who saved all seven shots on goal he faced, earned his first shutout of 2015 and the first for any U.S. U-23 MNT goalkeeper this year.

Defending champions Real Madrid reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League for the fifth successive year beating their city rivals Atletico Madrid 1-0 in the second leg of their quarterfinal clash at Santiago Bernabeu after the first leg at the Vicente Calderon had finished goalless.

Javier Hernandez, on loan from Manchester United, scored the only goal of the game, three minutes from the end of regulation time, to settle the tie that for long periods appeared destined for extra-time.


U.S. U-23 Men's National Team to Make 2015 Home Bow against Archrival Mexico

For the first time in 2015, the U.S. Under-23 Men's National Team is set to play on American soil, this time facing off with archrival Mexico on Wednesday, April 22 at StubHub Center in Carson, California.

U-23 MNT head coach Andi Herzog has assembled 20 players in California. The roster is charged with experience, as nine players were part of the USA's 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup team, and 11 participated in the U.S. U-23 camp in Europe this past March, which was highlighted by a 5-2 victory over Bosnia in Herzog's first victory as head coach of the U-23 program.

Aston Villa Manager Tim Sherwood was besides himself after leading his team to a shock 2-1 win over Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley today, and the former Spurs boss has already set his sights on taking on Arsenal in the final come May.

An excited Sherwood shared after the game, "I watched the semi-final yesterday and saw how calm Arsene Wenger was. I was just so delighted I had to spill out the emotions. We will be the underdogs, and the pressure is on Arsenal as they are the holders. But for now we have to put that on the backburner."

Aston Villa might be battling in the Premier League to avoid relegation, but their cup form has been nothing short of brilliant this season. The midlands giants stunned Liverpool 2-1 today at Wembley in controversial circumstances to advance to their first FA Cup Final since 2000, where they will take on defending champions Arsenal.

Aston Villa brought veteran keeper Shay Given into their starting eleven today, choosing to keep faith in the man who had brought them this far in the tournament. Also getting a start was local lad Jack Grealish, playing in arguably the biggest game of his fledgling career.
