Grant Wahl: Like a lingering cloud of tear gas: how do you reconcile the two Brazils?

Thu, 27 Feb 2014 09:15:14 EST

If there are two Brazils, then one of them is here, in a café by the Praça São Salvador, a few blocks from the beach in Rio de Janeiro. Wearing a gray T-shirt, sunglasses and a ring in the shape of a human skull, Alan Fragoso, 27, takes a sip of his caipirinha. Fragoso used to be a sort of Brazilian Don Draper, an advertising man selling products to the nation's emerging consumer class. Then one day he quit. "What I really want is to work with projects I believe in," he says, "not to invest in consumption."(image)



Grant Wahl: My Sportsmen: Bob Bradley and Robbie Rogers

Mon, 16 Dec 2013 11:31:13 EST

When it comes down to it, we're lucky in the world of soccer: The sport is so widespread?and so interconnected with culture and society?that it can't help but produce the kind of stories that highlight the human condition and, occasionally, represent the best in us. In 2013, two American soccer figures did exactly that, inspiring us with their courage and grace when others would have withdrawn in fear.(image)

Grant Wahl: Bob Bradley has Egypt on brink of history in playoff vs. old foe Ghana

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 20:40:08 EDT

Grant Wahl: The American Pharaoh

Wed, 09 Oct 2013 09:37:49 EDT

Look. There's Bob Bradley, the American coach of the Egyptian national soccer team. On a warm September night in Cairo, Bradley and his wife, Lindsay, arrive at the open-air El Prince restaurant in Imbaba, a vibrant working-class neighborhood in the Egyptian capital. Two years after a popular revolution, two months after a military takeover, one month after the mass killing of 800 protesters, the country remains on edge. A car bomb, the first in ages, went off the other day. Its intended target: the Minister of the Interior. Authorities just extended the state of emergency, including a curfew of 11 p.m. on most days and 7 p.m. on Fridays, the holy day, the day of demonstrations.(image)



Grant Wahl: Columbus crucial again as U.S. qualifies for 2014 World Cup

Wed, 11 Sep 2013 01:27:17 EDT

There was a special scene on the field here after the U.S. beat Mexico again by the same 2-0 score that has happened four times now against the Mexicans in Crew Stadium during World Cup qualifiers. A thousand or so hardcore fans stayed in the stadium as the videoboard showed the Honduras-Panama game that would decide if the U.S. would clinch a World Cup berth on Tuesday.(image)



Grant Wahl: Tim Howard embracing pressure from Mexico clash, Brad Guzan

Mon, 09 Sep 2013 20:22:13 EDT

It has been more than 10 years since Tim Howard played in the U.S.-Mexico rivalry for the first time on the senior national team. He was 24, and there were nearly 70,000 fans in Houston, and on May 8, 2003, in the first game between the two teams since the U.S.'s famous 2002 World Cup victory, the 0-0 tie that night didn't diminish the wonder Howard felt at experiencing an occasion that meant so much to so many people.(image)



Grant Wahl: Underachieving Mexico is down, but certainly not out

Sun, 08 Sep 2013 20:06:55 EDT

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Mexico is struggling. We know this because El Tri just lost a World Cup qualifier at home for the second time ever, and because coach Jose Manuel "Chepo" de la Torre got fired a few hours after that, and because, on the eve of Tuesday's U.S.-Mexico showdown here (8 p.m. ET, ESPN, UniMas), Mexico now finds itself clinging to life for a berth in World Cup 2014 with just three qualifiers left to play.(image)



Grant Wahl: After loss to Costa Rica, depth key for U.S. going forward

Sat, 07 Sep 2013 02:44:35 EDT

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica -- If there was one big lesson from the U.S. national team's triumphant summer and record-setting 12-game winning streak, it was this: The squad is now deeper than ever, with quality players at a number of positions and so much internal competition that some useful players were left off the roster for this week's World Cup qualifiers.(image)
