SBI Friday Rewind: Netherlands thrash Spain; USMNT camp coverage; FIFA hands down ban; and more

Sad Iker Casillas

By CAITLIN MURRAY

There’s a reason why world rankings and predictions don’t matter — look no further than the Netherlands’ astounding domination of defending champs Spain in group play, 5-1. Meanwhile, dubious officiating reared its ugly ahead again, but Mexico overcame two wrongly disallowed goals to win over Cameroon, 1-0.

As the U.S. Men’s National Team prepares for their World Cup opener against Ghana on Monday, SBI reporter Franco Panizo reports the team is trying not to dwell on their past unlucky history with Ghana. The team also took away a lesson from the aggressive refereeing in Brazil’s opening World Cup match.

And the investigation into corruption surrounding Qatar’s 2022 bid presses on, with German soccer legend Franz Beckenbauer being handed a temporary ban for refusing to cooperate with ethics investigators.

Here is a rundown of all the stories featured on SBI today:
