Coach Anthony Hudson charting a new attacking course for New Zealand

New Zealand coach Anthony Hudson wants his team to play an attacking style during their qualification campaign for the 2018 World Cup and beyond.

At the 2010 World Cup, New Zealand were determined, doughty and difficult to beat. The All Whites drew all three games against Slovakia, Paraguay and Italy to finish above the defending champions. It was a fine achievement.

For Russia 2018 however, head coach Anthony Hudson wants a little more. Not just to qualify but to play a brand of attacking, ambitious and aggressive football against the top teams on the planet.

Since taking the job in August last year, the Englishman, just 34, has started...

Jose Mourinho's title drought weighs heavier than Chelsea boss admits

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho responds to 'boring Chelsea' claims by taking another shot at Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

There is an issue, oddly, that Jose Mourinho refuses to be drawn into. The wonder then is whether the Chelsea manager's current title drought was something that played on his mind more than he would want observers to believe.

Despite the fact that it is little more than a formality that Chelsea will seal the Premier League if they beat Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, it has come out of a situation that is far from a formality for Mourinho.

When Chelsea eventually win this league, it...

Five stages of David Beckham: The biggest moments of his career

ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Stuart Holden take a look back at David Beckham's career on his 40th birthday, but Burley recalls one moment in particular he was involved in with Beckham.

David Beckham turns 40 on Saturday. What were the events that made him the global icon he is today? We look at the five stages of Beckham's life.

King of all Cockneys

The Londoner made his way up north and became a star at Manchester United.

Despite coming from Chingford in east London, Beckham had Manchester United in his blood. His father, Ted, was (and remains) a match-going Cockney Red. Having won a Bobby Charlton Soccer School award, David achieved father and son's dream with a schoolboy contract. A lone Londoner in United's Class of '92, Beckham...

David Beckham: Five memorable goals

David Beckham scored some wonderful goals during his career. Here are five of the best.

Halfway line to headlines -- vs. Wimbledon, August 1996

Manchester United's David Beckham scores the goal that defined his career against Wimbledon on the opening day of the 1996-97 season.
To this day, Beckham's strike from the halfway line remains one of the most majestic.

There had been plenty of advanced notices, but the moment that announced Beckham to the world at large came in Manchester United's season opener at Selhurst Park. Dons keeper Neil Sullivan jumped in vain, arms by his side, after Beckham, from his own half, and right of the centre circle, faded the ball into an empty net. A 21-year-old Beckham,...

Brazilian championship set to suffer again due to a crowded calendar

Cruzeiro won their fourth title last season but Brazil's calendar means they, and the fans, could suffer in 2015.

The Brazilian Championship kicks off in just over a week's time, on May 9. With the best 20 teams in this giant land playing each other home and away until early December, it is the country's most important club competition.

But if the reader of Lance!, Brazil's sports daily, sifts through the paper in search of the opening day fixtures, he or she will not find them. This is not a criticism of the paper; after all, they have just 24 pages to cover the world of sports. Rather, it is a condemnation...

ESPN FC April Player of the Month -- Messi, Ronaldo or Kiessling?

The ESPN FC panel respond to your tweets on who can win the Ballon d'Or other than Ronaldo or Messi, and who the next great manager will be.

With just a month left to play in the 2014-15 season across Europe's big five leagues, one thing is looking increasingly clear: If 2014 was the year of Cristiano Ronaldo -- winner of ESPN FC's Player of the Month award in September, October and November -- then 2015 is looking like Lionel Messi's.

The Barcelona No. 10 has won each of our awards dating back to December -- with the exception of January's, when Remy Cabella won thanks to some persistence from Newcastle fans -- and has continued...
