Sepp Blatter faces Figo, five others in FIFA election: What you need to know

ESPN FC's Dale Johnson looks at whether Luis Figo's candidacy for FIFA presidency will further dilute the vote against Sepp Blatter.

Q: Plenty of FIFA talk out there. Let me guess, election time again?

A: Yep. May 29, to be exact, at the FIFA Congress. And yes, Sepp Blatter will be running for president again. For a fifth term. At 78 years of age.

Q: And I guess he's going to win again?

A: Well, there's a lot that can happen between now and May 29, but history suggests so. When FIFA last had their congress, before the 2014 World Cup, Blatter's opponents tried to introduce both term limits AND age limits and were resoundingly...

Group D stands for 'draw' in Africa Cup of Nations as drawing of lots looms

The drawing of lots is something that rarely happens in football, but it's exciting when it does.

Four matches in and it's neck and neck. In fact, it couldn't be closer. After four 1-1 draws in the first two matchdays in Group D of the Africa Cup of Nations, Ivory Coast, Mali, Cameroon and Guinea all find themselves in the same situation.

That's the same points, same goals scored, same goals conceded. No wins, no losses -- just four draws in the opening two matchdays. At the moment the teams can't be separated: they all deserve to go through and all deserve to go out.

This, of course, means...

What happened to Steven Defour and Standard Liege's golden generation?

Steven Defour was sent off on his return to his old club as Standard Liege beat Anderlecht 2-0 in a heated Belgian Pro League encounter.

It would take a very hard heart indeed to not have sympathy for Steven Defour after his weekend. The Belgium midfielder has always been a forthright figure, to say the very least. If you skimmed a news summary noting that he had been sent off for kicking the ball into the crowd on his return to former club Standard Liege with his current team (and Standard's archrivals) Anderlecht, you might have silently nodded in recognition to yourself.

There was a pretty major footnote, though. Defour was greeted...

Juan Roman Riquelme: The master of his art will be missed by Argentina

The ESPN FC team reflect back on Juan Roman Riquelme's storied career and the crew is forced to pick which was the best professional footballer.

Towards the end of 2001, a tribute match for Argentine legend Diego Maradona was staged at Boca Juniors' famous stadium, La Bombonera, in Buenos Aires. The spectators included then-Argentina national team coach Marcelo Bielsa, who was roundly booed. However, the fans' ire had nothing to do with any falling out between Bielsa and Maradona, but rather the fact that the coach had no place in his team for Juan Roman Riquelme, the playmaker and idol of the Boca side of the time -- who announced his retirement...

Brendan Rodgers and Jose Mourinho have point to prove in Capital One Cup

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Craig Burley preview Tuesday's Capital One Cup replay between Chelsea and Liverpool.

The Capital One Cup is usually regarded as a mild inconvenience by the bigger clubs, an irritation that ranks somewhere between defrosting the freezer and paying a large electricity bill. You'd rather not, but it's necessary and people will get cross if you don't bother.

It's comfortably the fourth priority for any English club involved in European competition, unless you're Mike Ashley and you regard the Europa League as even lower.

Of course, teams tend to get a little more serious about the whole...

Corinthians-Casuals return to Brazil for historic friendly with Corinthians

Casuals
Corinthians-Casuals may have lost 3-0, but the game was about more than the result. PHOTO CREDIT: Twitter.

Saturday afternoon saw a typically lively afternoon of action in the Ryman Isthmian League South. In perhaps the pick of the action, Ramsgate drew 3-3 at home with Three Bridges in front of 159 fans, while a bumper crowd of 459 turned out to see leaders Burgess Hill Town beat Sittingbourne.

For the team currently in 18th spot in the division, however, it was a rather unusual weekend. Instead of taking on Hastings United on a chilly January afternoon back home, amateur club Corinthians-Casuals were...
