For many American soccer ns, traveling to Camp Nou in Barcelona or Bernabeu or Metropolitano in Madrid to catch a Spanish league is a bucket list moment. The reality is that heading overseas for a match can be expensive when you consider the flight, hotels, tickets and food.

Fans might need to wait a little longer to find out the matchups and venue for the historic match. A Spanish league source told CBS Sports that there is nothing confirmed yet when it comes to the teams that will play the first match, where it will be played or what season it will be. Its hard to ignore Miami as a potential host for the first match due to Relevents connection the city. Stephen Ross, owner of the Miami Dolphins, is the chairman and cofounder of RSE Ventures, the parent company of Relevent, and Hard Rock Stadium in Miami hosted a soldout El Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid in the summer of in the International Champions Cup.

Trump hits alliescanada with metal tariffs; Mexico EU and Canada vow to retaliate

The Trump administration said Tuesday that it ismoving forwardwith tariffs on billion worth of Chinese goods as punishment for intellectual property theft.

Canada, Mexico and the EU were among the countries granted relief while the United States pursued negotiations to address the administrations concerns about the state of domestic steel and aluminum production. Those negotiations had a Friday deadline.

Transferring Your Balance to a Month APR is Ingenious

The Chinese government said the announcement was obviously in violation of the consensus reached in Washington recently by both China and the United States. Both parties had previously said that tariffs would be put on hold as talks continued.

Ross is scheduled to go to China this weekend for a third round of negotiations.

Such an action could hurtMexico, Canada, Germany and Japan.

Trump announced worldwide steel and aluminum tariffs in March but granted exemptions to some major trading partners.

Canada was thelargest exporter of steelto the United States by value last year, according to data from Wood Mackenzie. Mexico was the third largest, behind South Korea.

Canadian officials said at a press conference that Canada would enact tariffs on . billion in US exports, effective July , to retaliate against Trumps action.

CNNMoneys Alanna Petroff, Nathaniel Meyersohn, Danielle WienerBronner and Matt Egan contributed to this report.

The trade penalties, on imported steel and on imported aluminum, take effect at midnight, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told reporters Thursday.

The NAFTA talks were one ctor in the administrations decision to grant exemptions to Canada and Mexico from the steel and aluminum tariffs. But Ross said Thursday that those talks are taking longer than we hoped.

Trumps decision could raise prices for Americans on a range of everyday products. It could also place the United States in a trade dispute on more than one front. The administration is separately moving ahead with tariffs on Chinese goods.

Mexico quickly said the US action was not justified, and vowed to retaliate with comparable penalties on American lamps, pork, fruit, cheese and flat steel.

The United States is alsoexploring the possibility of putting new tariffs on cars. Last week, The Trump administration announced an investigation into whether automobile imports are hurting US national security, laying the groundwork for another trade fight.

President Trump is imposing steep tariffs on steel and aluminum from three of Americas biggest trading partners Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

Get Back With This Outrageous New Credit Card

In a statement late Thursday, Trump said a message had been conveyed to Trudeau earlier in the day that the United States will agree to a ir deal, or there will be no deal at all.

Today is a bad day for world trade, EU trade commissioner Cecilia Malmström said in a statement. We did everything to avoid this outcome.

Europe also said it would start the process for enacting retaliatory tariffs. It did not announce details, but the bloc has previously threatened tariffs on US products such as motorcycles, denim, cigarettes,cranberry juiceand peanut butter.

Foreign minister Chrystia Freeland called it the strongest trade action Canada has taken in the postwar era.

Trump imposed the steel and aluminum penalties under a law that gives the president broad power to increase or reduce tariffs on goods deemed critical to national security.

Whoa Canada Examining the NFL talent canadapipeline emerging up north

Whoa Canada Examining the NFL talent canadapipeline emerging up northYou have some phenomenal athletes who might not have the same football IQ, said Gill, but they obviously feel like that can be taught.

Indeed, the only three Canadians drafted in the first round since Danny Watkins to the Eagles in , Tim Biakabutuka to the Panthers in and Tony Mandarich to the Packers in have become busts. So it might take some time before anybody wants to gamble on another Canuck that early.

And the reality is a lot of football folks south of the border are tempted by players who are more fresh and raw. Gill likened Canadian prospects to clay that can still be molded from scratch, whereas a lot of American prospects already had muscle memory set by their high school and/or college coaches.

Whoa, Canada Examining the NFL talent pipeline emerging up north

That trend will continue next year, with Ontariogroomed defensive tackles Wesley Annan and Neville Gallimore accepting scholarships to Stanford and Oklahoma, respectively, and British Columbia offensive lineman Harper Sherman headed to Arizona.

All of the players I just listed are American, as are recent CFLtoNFL converts Sten Logan,Duron Carter,Jerrell FreemanDelvin Breauxand Weston Dressler, but that still speaks to the countrys ability to bring players along.

Three other CIS grads Panthersoffensive tackleDavid FoucaultUniversit de Montral,Billsdefensive tackleSten CharlesRegina and Colts linebackerHenoc MuambaSt. Francis Xavier are also currently on NFL rosters despite not being drafted and not having played NCAA football. If you include Manitoba alum and current NFL free agent Israel Idonije, percent of the former CIS players ever to make NFL rosters are currently active.

Prior to that, a Canadian hadnt been drafted since Nick Kaczur and OJ Atogwe went to thePatriotsandRams, respectively, in . Only Canadians were selected in drafts between and , but were taken in the following six. Thats a very similar pattern to what weve seen in the NBA.

Since , Canadians have been drafted, including two Laurent DuvernayTardindVaughn Martin who came directly from Canadian universities.

Toronto native Brad Gagnon has covered the NFL since . You can also read his work at Bleacher Report, Awful Announcing and This Given Sunday. In order to sound more professional, he wrote this blurb in the third person. Follow him on Twitter. Or dont. Its entirely your choice.

A lot of these guys end up back in the CFL, which is still the primary landing spot for CIS players and Canadians in the NCAA, but that doesnt mean the NFL dream is over. Thats because the CFL has traditionally groomed football players like no other league outside of the NFL. Warren Moon, Joe Theismann, Doug Flutie and Jeff Garcia all cut their teeth professionally north of the border, as did several current NFL mainstays likeBrandon BrownerCameron WakeandAndrew Hawkins, as well as Seahawks wideoutChris Matthews, who had a breakout game in the Super Bowl.

But it goes beyond that. As Canadian football writer Andrew Bucholtz notes, more Canadians appear to be getting opportunities at major schools south of the border as well.

Whoa, Canada Examining the NFL talent pipeline emerging up north

Charles and Foucault were both found at regional combines and might not have been added to offseason rosters had it not been for those extra spots.

Even The Hoodie was impressed with Tom Bradys big night

Four Canadians were picked in last years draft, while exCFL stars like Cameron Wake are shining. A look at whats fueling Canadas NFL talent boom.

Canadians have been picked first overall in the last two NBA drafts, with three Canucks going in the top last spring. Twelve Canadians have been drafted in the last five years alone. In the previous years, there were just . In other words, weve gone from seeing a Canadian drafted every other year to seeing two or three new Canadians per year.

I think once somebody finds somebody unconventional then everybody else starts looking at those unconventional guys as well, said Bucholtz, who noted that Hicks was found only after the NFL went to Regina to look at someone else.

Running backs play a key role in this weeks Friday breakdown of the injury report

Agent Darren Gill, who represents Foucault and whose American agency counts Willson as a client, tells me that in the last five years its clear more attention has been paid to Canadians, specifically those who are playing in Canada, either coming from the CFL or CIS.

But its still clear that the football pipeline between the two countries is busier than ever before.

Josh Nagel has his finger on the pulse of the Rams and Seahawks

It helps that CIS schools have been able to offer more to Canadian athletes when it comes to scholarship money. Its still tough for most Canadian schools to compete with major American programs, but athletic scholarships which used to be pretty much nonexistent in Canada have become much more common north of the border.

There was a time when the NBA was strictly a league of Americans, with only a few exceptions Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash, Tony Parker, Dikembe Mutombo, Vlade Divac and Hedo Trkoglu among the most nole.

Gill had a similar experience with his client, David Foucault.

Logan is only foot and pounds but has been given shots in Miami, Pittsburgh and Detroit. Dresslers only , , but he earned a shot in Kansas City last year.

Like DuvernayTardif and Martin, Ryan made the NFL cut despite not even crossing the th parallel for his schooling. Throw in AmericanbornSaintsdefensive endAkiem Hicks, who was a thirdround pick out of Regina the same school as Ryan in and Canadian Interuniversity Sport football CIS, or Canadas version of the NCAA has four alumni draft picks currently on NFL rosters.

Mike McClure, a DFS pro with more than M in winnings, gives optimal DraftKings and FanDuel…

Instead, most Canadians start football in high school. On the suce, that would seem disadvantageous, but there are some advantages which American scouts and recruiters are beginning to discover.

I just think its important for our league to keep our good guys as long as we can, Roughriders general manager Brendan Taman told theWinnipeg Sunearlier this year. But the trend is that the NFL is coming to get our good players. Thats the trend. Thats where this is going.

It used to be that theyd have to stick around a little longer and prove themselves as CFL veterans, he said. I think now were seeing a lot of guys leave after one or two years. And I think that shows increased NFL respect for the CFL. If they see a year of film from the CFL, I think NFL executives regard that more highly than they used to.

Canadian football has for years been higher scoring and more wide open offensively, with a heavier emphasis on passing. But thats exactly where the American game is trending, thus it easier for players to transition seamlessly from one country to the other.

It also tends to give more young men a chance to jump in without the fear of being too r behind. Canada has the advantage of being extremely multicultural, and Bucholtz notes that a lot of the immigrant community has embraced football. The later starts across the board give students who have moved to Canada as teenagers more incentive to give it a shot. And youll notice that a high number of Canadian football players were actually born elsewhere.

Chief among that expansion is Canada, which has officially exploded as a breeding ground for NBA players. In the previous generation, the north gave pro basketball Nash the only Canadian to win MVP as well as role players like Rick Fox, Samuel Dalembert, Todd MacCulloch and Jamaal Magloire. But right now, Canada possesses a record active NBA players, which accounts for percent of its alltime NBA contingent.

Birk notes that a lot of positions dont require specialization at a young age, which is why youll see more and more international players coming into our league.

Right now, Canada has the worlds sixthranked male tennis player and seventhranked female tennis player. There are more Canadians than ever competing on the PGA Tour, with Nick Taylor breaking through for the countrys first tournament victory in more than half a decade last ll. And not too long ago, Canadian mixed martial artist Georges StPierre was the worlds topranked welterweight for several years running.

If youre stuck in Canada, it might be because youre underd. But American football perceptions about have changed a ir bit, thanks to success stories like Flutie and Wake from the CFL, as well as shorterthanpreferred quarterbacksDrew BreesandRussell Wilson.

Its simply a lot easier for young Canadian talent to reveal itself to the world by way of YouTube and other means, which is something Matt Birk, the NFLs director of football development, has noticed.

Canadian schools spent . million on athletic scholarships in , but that number more than doubled to . million in . That might explain why the active CIS football programs have more alumni than ever playing in both the NFL and the CFL.

But the amount of international players in the game has increased fivefold in the last quartercentury. This year,NBAopeningnight rosters contained a record international players hailing from a record countries.

That might explain why Bucholtz has noticed that more teams have been willing to take chances on Canadianborn and/or bred football players earlier in their careers.

Cameron Wakes success in the NFL has helped other former CFL players get noticed.USATSI

The quest to find the next Cameron Wake has caused scouting departments to cast wider nets which have the ability to cover more of both the United States and Canada, as well as emerging football hotspots overseas theersrecently signed an Australian rugby star, for example.

After that, in free agency, Canadian offensive linemanOrlando Franklinlanded a fiveyear, . million contract with theSan Diego Chargers. And theres a decent chance that later this spring, Brandon Bridge from the University of South Alabama becomes only the third Canadianborn quarterback to be drafted by an NFL team.

Theres simply more room for Canadians. In , NFL rosters expanded from to . That same year, the league launched regional combines to complement the main combine in Indy.

If you can play, Birk said, they will find you.

It used to be that a lot of Canadian players would wind up at some of the smaller NCAA schools, Bucholtz told me. Obviously a lot of the MAC schools were very prominent for developing Canadians, a lot of the Division II schools. Now were seeing more and more Canadians at power five conference schools, so I think thats having an impact as well.

There are some major differences between youth football in Canada and youth football in the United States, the key being that Pop Warner is a major institution in the US but very few Canadians start that young.

Wedged between those two events was the Super Bowl, which featured two key CanadianbornSeattle Seahawks, tight endLuke Willsonand punterJon Ryan.

Nobodys really hiding anymore, Birk told me. And I also think that because of technology the NFL is probably more available to people up there, and to the youth especially. So theyre more exposed, and therefore the NFL becomes something that they become miliar with, it becomes aspirational.

I dont think its quite at the scale were seeing in the NBA right now, where guys like Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett are going first overall, said Bucholtz. Theres nobody whos going to be a Canadian first overall NFL pick anytime soon, and really weve only seen a few firstround picks of Canadians over the years.

That doesnt mean we should expect to see a top pick from Canada at any point in the near future, because Canada isnt yet producing football players like it does hockey and basketball players.

Canada has produced openwheel racing champions Jacques Villeneuve and Paul Tracy, worldrecord runners Ben Johnson and Donovan Bailey and legendary heavyweight boxers George Chuvalo and Lennox Lewis. So you could make the argument that the NFL is due.

That speaks to developing more players like quarterbacks, receivers and defensive linemen who rush the passer, said Birk.

Its not easy being a defensive player in the NFL right now

Well, you have to wonder if a similar trend could be taking place albeit at a slower, less distinct and less advanced rate in football. After all, thats the one major American sport remaining which Canada has yet to leave a clear mark on.

Saints DE Akiem Hicks was born in the US, but played his college ball in Canada.USATSI

For starters, as Bucholtz points out, it means these kids are taking less hits and likely have more tread on their tires, which is important in a game that offers extremely short shelf lives to its participants.

For a lot of teams it takes a positive experience with a specific player, he said. Without a doubt Davids opportunity in Carolina happened because the year before Linden Gaydosh was down there and the team had a positive experience with a Canadian.

I agree that CBS Sports can send me the Pick Six Newsletter newsletter.

The majority ofNHLhockey players were born in Canada, including eight of the MVPs Hart Trophy winners this century. And in the last years, Canada has produced three MVPs and one Cy Young winner in Major League Baseball.

And it appears were witnessing the beginning of a trend there, because a record four Canadians were selected in last years NFL Draft and a record four more participated in this years NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
