Former Premier League striker Kenwyne Jones announced his retirement Monday after one season with Atlanta United. Gerardo Martino's side parted ways with Jones earlier Monday, with Atlanta announcing the club had declined his contract option for the 2018 season. And the 33-year-old later confirmed he was calling it a career, tweeting: "Football has been great to me, I thank everyone who has helped me on the way, I appreciate you, but this is my last year in the sport."
Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has spoken about his early days as a goalkeeper, saying U.S. international Tim Howard was his idol growing up. The 20-year-old England international is off to a strong start this season, having scored seven times over 19 appearances in all competitions. But before Rashford developed into one of the sport's most promising forwards, the Manchester native put on the gloves as a youth — looking to then-Manchester United goalkeeper Howard for inspiration.
Practically speaking, 2017 was an "off-year" for the U.S. women's national team — a non-stop string of friendlies with no major competition in sight. But that description doesn't do justice to a year colored by questions and storylines aplenty. Amid the experimentation, the U.S. fell short in a pair of invitationals on home soil — finishing in last place as France won the SheBelieves Cup before seeing Australia triumph at the Tournament of Nations.
@rhiannon749 It's an option I'd like to see revisited, especially now that Rapinoe is back at 100 percent and making the flanks crowded. She'd certainly fit the attack-minded profile Ellis wants out of her fullbacks.
@rhiannon749 I'm actually surprised Krieger hasn't gotten a real look at CB — her versatility and veteran presence would be useful as depth. Front line is tough ... probably Rapinoe, Morgan and Heath if all are healthy and in form.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
