Yura bags two goals in Europa debut
With most of the world's sights still fixed on South Africa, the Europa and Champions League got off to a quiet start this week featuring the créme de la créme of teams falling in the category of "never heard of 'em, don't even know how to pronounce 'em". While the chances for nearly any of these teams to reach the group stage of their respective competition lay somewhere between winning the lottery and Christiano Ronaldo finishing a major tournament with any level of dignity, these early rounds offer some respite for the hardened soccer junkies who can't bear the thought of looking on the scoreboard to see that there's absolutely no meaningful games happening that day.

Yes, the two-day break between completion of the Round of 16 and the first quarterfinal matchup has been excruciating.
