Good morning, America. Welcome to the VICE Sports World News Roundup. Be sure to stop by daily for your morning headlines.

It's the 30th of July, 2015, and Sepp Blatter is still president of FIFA.

Could Diego Maradona be the next FIFA President? He's been making some noise about running. "I'm going for FIFA. It's true," he said in an interview with el Canal América television station. "I have to fight against the Mafia." For the sake of drama, I really hope he runs!

Honorary FIFA Vice President and Hundi magnit Chung Mong-joon has announced his candidacy for FIFA President.

The first match of the Copa Libertadores final between Mexican side Tigres and Argentinian side River Plate finished goalless.

Panamanian president Juan Carlos Varela has given the Panamanian Gold Cup team a bonus of $20,000 each, in addition to donating $1 million to soccer development in that country. The President's payout is in addition to the $140,000 bonus the players received for winning 3rd place. "Giving money is easy," Varela said. "Playing sports is the hard part."

West Ham has a new kit!

Loving the new retro West Ham kit.

The Women's British Open is underway. New Zealand's Lydia Ko is currently in the lead, although the first round is not yet over.

The MLS All Stars beat Tottenham 2-1. Kaka was the man. So was Nick Rimando.

Tom Brady and the NFL Players Association are suing the NFL over Brady's ridiculous suspension. I hate this ridiculous deflategate story. It's ridiculous.

Boy, is it a slow news day! Here. Watch Robin Williams clown Sepp Blatter at the 1994 World Cup draw.
