Once again, Canada is hosting a FIFA tournament and once again, the visitors' crowd looks and sounds a lot more boisterous than the red and white faithful.

Butler: Face and Force of Impact moved upstairs

If we could use some of that vanishing spray from Brazil 2014 to remove the 1999 A League Season which was spent in Raleigh, North Carolina as the Impact sat out an outdoor season - Saturday afternoon's league match at home to arch rival Toronto FC will represent the first time in over two decades the Montreal Impact will take to a football pitch without Nick De Santis leading from the front.

Butler: Presidential seal confirms there is triumph in defeat

The U.S. World Cup campaign formally ended Wednesday with a cosy two minute chat on the phone between the President, the captain and America's latest superhero.

Butler: Azzurri go in search of slaying St. George in Amazon

With serious allegations of corruption monopolizing the news cycle, the last thing FIFA needed following the opening match of Brazil 2014 was for the headlines to be dominated by the awarding of a mystery penalty.
