The reality is picking your team name can be just as fun as participating in each matchday and selecting your squads.

Ali Riley Excited to Captain New Zealand at World Cup

Many soccer players never get a chance to play in a World Cup, let alone one in their home country. For Ali Riley, not only does she get to do both, but also serve as a captain when she suits up for New Zealand at this summer’s spectacle.

RELATED: Most Expensive Soccer Cards Ever Sold

The 35-year-old has had a whirlwind 16-months after being traded to Angel City FC back in January 2022, just in time for their debut NWSL season. It just so happens she can once again play in her home city–just miles away from where she grew up–and lead a team looking to make an impact in a massive American market.

ONE37pm had the chance to sit down with Ali Riley as part of her partnership with Champs Sports after launching their “Game All Day, Every Day” campaign.

Ali Riley making moves out on the pitch

ONE37pm: Thanks so much for taking the time, Ali. Why was partnering with Champs so important for you ahead of this busy summer?

Riley: For me, I wear athleisure or sport clothing all the time. So to have the chance to do but still be glammed up and do fun content it made so much sense. I think for players like me we’re getting into this space and it’s a huge opportunity to grow our platform.

For me, being an Asian-American and playing in the World Cup with New Zealand I hope that the diversity and my unique path can be an inspiration to any little guys or anyone that wants to pursue this path.

ONE37pm: Being that it’s a World Cup year, what does this whole journey mean to you having the chance to captain your country on home soil?

Riley: Until we play that first game I’m not sure I’ll really grasp what this all means and the magnitude of it all. It’s really a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

To host a World Cup is really out of your control as a player, but I feel so lucky to play for a country that has the means and resources along with Australia to put together an amazing bid.

I see it as such a huge opportunity even with all the pressure. We’re looking to make a difference in New Zealand to hopefully grow the game so that the future teams can be more diverse.

We want to see more girls playing soccer or picking up a ball after hosting the tournament. Hopefully it’s not just watching the World Cup and that’s the end of it.

ONE37pm: Along those same lines, New Zealand’s playing in their fifth straight Women’s World Cup. How special would it be to get the nation’s first win in the tournament?

Riley: I really hope we do well. Like you said, we’ve never won a game at the World Cup, so to make history at home would be incredible and could really change the direction of women’s soccer in New Zealand.

It could really kickstart something and we’ve seen it before with the U.S. women in 1999. Their growth over here has been really amazing and they’ve pulled a lot further ahead of us in New Zealand.

We want to leave a lasting impact that can matter in 50 or 100 years down the road.

ONE37pm: You’re up to over 150 caps now with the national team, which is amazing. Looking back on it, did you ever envision this kind of success?

Riley: I really never imagined any of this honestly and that’s what makes it so overwhelming. Now I think little girls growing up can dream about these moments and create plans for how they want to pursue their passions.

Everything won’t always go according to plan, but I was lucky enough to have that seed planted when I saw the World Cup in 1999 here in LA.

ONE37pm: It’s your second season with Angel City now, so what has this stage of your career been like so far in LA?

Riley: It’s the most amazing feeling being able to represent my city and being able to have my family come out to all our home games. That’s kind of the dream being able to share these experiences with your loved ones.

As this league grows there will be more chances for players to experience what I am right now and that makes me really excited.

I’m so lucky to be able to share this with my family after playing in different parts of the country and around the world with clubs and the national team. It’s all very surreal.

ONE37pm: With your unique opportunities to play here but also overseas, what are some of the biggest differences you’ve seen from playing domestically versus abroad?

Riley: When I went to play in Europe I was definitely the least technical person on my team. It got even harder as I progressed from Sweden to England to Germany, but that forced me to really focus and challenge myself against these amazing players.

Especially at Chelsea, I saw Millie Bright and Magdalena Eriksson up close and they’re some of the toughest defenders I’ve ever seen. To play alongside them was really rewarding and then it was my first time where I was really a substitute.

I went through my most challenging times as an athlete because you have expectations to play every game and there’s constant pressure to perform. I’d say it helped me become a better player and even more so a better teammate because it gave me great perspective.

ONE37pm: Just one final question, Ali. I know your social media presence is really taking off now, so have you considered what comes next after you decide it’s time to hang up the boots?

Riley: I love being on camera and telling stories. I really enjoy making content and especially just feeling responsible for doing it around the struggles of women trying to make a life out of sports.

I think the fun side is always important, but we need to keep pushing to show the players for who we are and all the things we do as side hustles or anything off the pitch.

I’m not sure if the commentating side feels right for me but I want to stay involved in the game in a way that’s lighthearted and also gives me a balance to also dive into those hard-hitting questions.

How to Watch Premier League in the United States

Football has become a massive draw across the globe and Americans are consuming Premier League games more than ever.

RELATED: Most Premier League Goals in a Season

Top stars appear in England’s top flight, making it a significant draw for supporters around the globe that regularly watch Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City. For many, the Premier League is considered the best football league in the world.

Erling Haaland and City consistently have massive star power but this season Arsenal has found themselves on the front foot of the Premier League title race for the first time in years.

Mikel Arteta’s side have always been popular in America with a previous generation led by players like Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry. Now, the Gunners b0ast promising stars like Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard.

Below, I break down how fans can watch Premier League matches in the United States. Check it out!

How to watch Premier League matches

NBC Sports Group has the exclusive rights to the Premier League in the U.S., which includes English and Spanish broadcast coverage. Matches are typically shown nationally on NBC, USA Network as well as Telemundo in Spanish.

Their Peacock streaming service shows the bulk of Premier League matches each weekend, with games being shown on Saturdays and Sundays and occasionally weekdays.


Peacock is arguably the best way to watch Premier League matches because of the volume of games offered each week. The NBC-owned streaming service starts at $4.99 per month for its basic package and also offers a $9.99 a month service that is commercial-free.

Peacock gives fans insight into historic matches from the past, official match highlights and other Premier League programming. Premier League-specific shows such as The Men in Blazers and The 2 Robbies are some of the other programs Peacock offers.


FuboTV offers Premier League fans the ability to watch games on NBC and USA Network. In all, Fubo gives base subscribers over 100 channels to choose from. If subscribers stay on after an initial trial, FuboTV typically costs $74.99 a month to continue with its service.

Hulu Live TV

Hulu has over 60 channels to select including NBC and USA Network for Premier League viewing. The company’s package costs roughly $69.99 per month and it serves on a month-to-month basis similar to FuboTV.

YouTube TV

YouTube TV comes with a price tag of $64.99 per month and offers Premier League watchers with the same NBC and USA Network.

When does the Premier League season end?

The Premier League runs through May with the final Matchday coming Memorial Day Weekend. Matchday 38 concludes the season on May 28 with all 20 English clubs competing at the same time on Championship Sunday.


Breaking Down the Players with the Most Goals in a Premier League Season

England has had some of the top talent in football and these are the players with the most goals in a Premier League season.

RELATED: How to Watch the Premier League in USA

Over the years players like Alan Shearer, Andy Cole and Mohamed Salah have dazzled in England’s top flight. This season, Erling Haaland is on pace to shatter the Premier League record for goals in his debut season.

Haaland has an astounding 21 goals so far in 2022/23, which makes the Norwegian a massive threat to Shearer and Cole’s joint-record. The Manchester City star needs just 13 goals to equal the total that the former Premier League stars racked up almost three decades ago.

<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

Shearer set that 34-goal number back in 1994/95 while playing for Blackburn Rovers.There are some discrepancies over who holds the record because the Premier League has cut back on matches over the years. When Shearer scored 34 goals, he did it in a 42-game season, while the Premier League has played a 38-game slate since the mid 1990’s.

Below, ONE37pm takes a closer look at the players that scored the most goals in a Premier League season.

Most goals scored in a Premier League season

In the Premier League era, no player was most dominant than Alan Shearer, who holds countless records in England’s top flight. Shearer has the most goals in Premier League history with 260 goals during his tremendous career. His best season came in 1994/95 and is level with Andy Cole’s fantastic 34-goal campaign the season prior.

Mo Salah came along years later for Liverpool and nearly put himself onto the top of the goalscoring charts, but fell two short.

Now, Erling Haaland is chasing this list of extraordinary talents with 21 goals in 17 matches. The Norway international is on pace to score over 40 goals in England’s domestic league in 2022/23.

34 goals

Alan Shearer (Blackburn Rovers) – 1994/95 (42-game season)

Andy Cole (Newcastle United) – 1993/94 (42-game season)

32 goals

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – 2017/18

31 goals

Luis Suarez (Liverpool) – 2013/14

Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) – 2007/08

Alan Shearer (Blackburn Rovers) – 1993/94

Robin van Persie (Arsenal) – 2011/12

Thierry Henry (Arsenal) – 2003/04

Kevin Phillips (Sunderland) – 1999/00

Top Premier League goalscorers of all time

While players like Haaland have bright futures in England, only one current player sits in the top 10 for Premier League goals.

Harry Kane has become a club legend for Tottenham and he’s closing in on his 200th goal. He’d become the third player to ever hit that goal total as he chases Shearer and Wayne Rooney.

Meanwhile, other English legends like Frank Lampard, Michael Owen and Andy Cole broke into the chart during their tenures.

Who Has the Most Wimbledon Wins?

Tennis legends like Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams have graced England’s finest courts and these are the players with the most Wimbledon wins.

RELATED: NetPro Tennis Cards: The History and Future

Wimbledon has been played since 1877 when the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club first introduced the major tournament.

Djokovic won his fourth straight Wimbledon crown in 2022 after the tournament was postponed in 2020 due to COVID-19.

His win this year helped him reach 20 Grand Slam titles, pulling him level with Federer and Nadal as the only men to accomplish the feat.

The England-based event is held annually as one of four majors, joining the Australian Open, French Open and U.S. Open.

It’s the only major tournament that’s held on a grass surface, with the three others played on hard and clay courts.

Traditionally, players must wear all-white at Wimbledon due to the All England Club’s strict dress code.

This is the only major championship that has a dress code for its players.

ONE37pm takes a closer at the men’s and women’s players with the most Wimbledon wins in the tournament’s history.

What is the Open Era in tennis?

The Open Era began in 1968 as part of a rejuvenation of the sport.

Grand Slam tournaments like Wimbledon started allowing professional players to compete with amateurs.

British player William Renshaw was one of many amateurs to win Wimbledon in the early days of the competition.

<code><iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></code>

In fact, Renshaw won six consecutive titles from 1861 to 1866, a feat that has never been topped at Wimbledon.

The French Open was the first major played after the seismic shift, and each major since has followed suit.

Who has the most men’s Wimbledon titles (Open Era)?

Wins: 1968, 1969

Men’s tennis has seen a steady generation carry the weight of the sport for almost two decades with Djokovic, Federer and Nadal.

Nadal and Federer shared Centre Court on several occasion, including one of the most epic Wimbledon finals of all time in 2008.

The five-set thriller saw rain delays and back-and-forth rallies that eventually resulted in Nadal’s first Wimbledon win.

The victory for Nadal halted Federer’s five-year title run.

Prior to their arrival, American Pete Sampras was the gold standard, especially at Wimbledon.

Sampras won seven titles in eight years.

John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg had one of the fiercest rivalries in tennis for years, and the two combined for eight Wimbledon wins.

Although Open Era greats like Djokovic, Federer and Sampras sit atop this list, the previous era had some legendary figures.

William Renshaw holds a record with six straight Wimbledon championships back in the 1880’s.

Renshaw’s feat was matched by Sampras, but unfortunately the American’s run was ended before he could reach seven consecutive titles.

Swedish star Bjorn Borg won five titles in a row and was the gold standard for tennis in his country for many years.

As tennis grew as a sport, more players outside of Great Britain were introduced on the Wimbledon scene, creating more stars.

The Best ‘FIFA’ Games, Ranked

Soccer fans across the globe unite annually with the release of the FIFA video game series and these are the best FIFA games ranked from best to worst.

RELATED: Who’s Won Every FIFA World Cup?

For over two decades, FIFA has become a staple in the gaming community for passionate and casual soccer supporters alike.

The series debuted in 1993 with the title FIFA International Soccer but two years later it was quickly given the FIFA moniker that stuck. There have been variations of the game over the years that typically allow players to compete as their favorite players and club teams. These include those from around Europe, North and South America, and other parts of the world.

FIFA has also given players the chance to utilize national teams through their normal game modes, and in some cases, created separate games specifically for World Cups. In 2005, Electronic Arts also debuted the FIFA Street series which shed some light on the street soccer community and offered players the chance to compete in different areas of the world.

When Does ‘FIFA 24’ Come Out?

FIFA games over the years have typically been released to the public in September of each year in different windows.

The striker capped off his legacy with a 2014 World Cup title but his best performance came on home soil in 2006. He also led that World Cup with five goals despite Germany not taking home the trophy.

Ronaldo – Brazil (15)

Ronaldo Nazario is recognized as one of the top strikers in football history and his World Cup track record backs that up. He helped guide his nation to glory at the 2002 World Cup after scoring eight goals.

Gerd Muller – West Germany (14)

Muller completed a decorated career with West Germany scoring 14 goals in 13 World Cup matches. He won the competition in 1974 after losing just one match in the competition to then-East Germany.

Just Fontaine – France (13)

Fontaine had the single-best World Cup by an individual player when he scored 13 goals back in 1958. The Frenchman only played in one World Cup but he left a lasting legacy with his nation.

Pele – Brazil (12)

The Brazilian star is the only player to ever win the World Cup on three separate occasions. Pele was a teenager when he won his first tournament and managed to play in four World Cups overall. He’s regarded as one of the greatest players of all time and is Brazil’s leading goal scorer with 77 goals in 92 matches.

Everything to Know About Group E at the World Cup

Multiple Group E sides will be looking to become World Cup champions in 2022 as the tournament kicks off in a few weeks.

RELATED: Latest 2022 World Cup Odds

Spain and Germany headline Group E, which also features Costa Rica and Japan.

The four countries will battle for places in the last 16, which is something all of them have reached in recent competitions.

Today, we’re taking a closer look at the group ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

Which Teams Will Play in Group E?

Costa Rica qualified for the World Cup after an epic battle against New Zealand back in June.

Japan has become accustomed to qualifying for the world’s biggest competition, and they’re always a tough out.

Germany are four-time World Cup champions and will look to bring a mixed group of youth and experience to Qatar.

Spain won its lone World Cup title in 2010, but with a young group of La Liga stars, perhaps the Spanish can win their second.

Who’s the Favorite?

Germany and Spain are pretty even on paper, but with the injuries the Germans are battling right now, the edge goes to the latter.

The Spanish are led by a strong core in the midfield with Pedri, Gavi, Sergio Busquets, and others.

Meanwhile, Dani Olmo, Ferran Torres, and Ansu Fati are exciting attacking options to go along with players like Gerard Moreno.

Spain won the World Cup over a decade ago in South Africa with one of the most talented squads of all time.

They boast a deep squad that can present challenges for any top nation, but their first priority will be handling a tough Group E.

Players to Watch on Every Team

Costa Rica – Jewison Bennette

Costa Rica mainly boasts an aging squad, but Bennette is one of their more promising young talents.

The Ticos star moved to Sunderland this season and has already scored a goal in just three appearances.

He’ll have the opportunity to mix into the Costa Rica attack with Joel Campbell and Johan Venegas.

GermanyJamal Musiala

Musiala is one of the best young midfielders in Europe and will have a significant role with Germany.

He’s been lighting it up with Bayern Munich this season and already has chemistry with players like Thomas Muller and Leroy Sane.

Japan – Takefusa Kubo

The Real Sociedad winger has become a huge name for Japan at the age of 21.

He’ll likely be one of the team’s go-to attackers in Qatar and aim to carry his La Liga form over to a team that’s had lots of World Cup success in the past.

Spain – Pedri

The Barcelona product continues to make a name for himself on the club and international scene.

The midfield will be based around the young Spaniard, and with strong performances at the Euros and during Nations League, he wants to make a big impact at his first World Cup.
