Good morning, America. It's June 13th, 2016. Welcome to the VICE Sports World News Roundup. Be sure to stop every morning for more headlines from around the world.

There was a LOT of soccer this past weekend. I will not be running through all the scores here, but just highlighting some notable occurrences.

For example, Jerome Boateng pulls off the best goal line clearance I've ever seen, as Germany beat Poland 2-0. (Via Reddit)

The corresponding photo is almost cooler than the video:

Fan violence at Euro 2016 continued over the weekend. There were clashes in the stadium when England tied Russia 1-1, and Ukrainian and German fans mixed it up after their match. The Russians, in particular, seemed well organized. "There were 150 Russian supporters who in reality were hooligans. These people were well prepared for ultra-rapid, ultra-violent action. These are extremely well-trained people," Marseilles prosecutor Brice Robin told the BBC.

Shower thoughts, with Vincent Kompany:

In Copa America, the U.S. won its group, thanks to Costa Rica beating Colombia 3-2. The team will meet Ecuador on Thursday after it beat Haiti and Peru beat Brazil 1-0, knocking the samba boys out of the tournament altogether. Peru's goal was highly controversial.

Lewis Hamilton won the Canadian Grand Prix. He is now only 9 points behind his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg.

Photo of the Day

Behold John Brooks making one of his many defensive clearances during the USMNT's 1-0 defeat of Paraguay on Saturday. Brooks put in one of the finest displays by any U.S. player in recent memory. He was simply amazing.
