Chelsea, Man City flaws shown in wild FA Cup weekend upsets

Bradford came back from two goals down to win 4-2 to send the Blues out of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge.
Championship side Middlesbrough produced a shock 2-0 win over Premier League champions Manchester City in the FA Cup.
ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno breaks down how the big boys came up short in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

After such a momentous day in the FA Cup, it is only right to say: To the victors go the spoils. League One side Bradford City were magnificent in beating Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday while Middlesbrough, who saw off Manchester City 2-0 at the Etihad, showed why they are prime candidates for promotion to the Premier League.

The cup's ability to create unlikely heroes and to fell tall poppies is not lost. Big clubs' haughty indifference to the competition only makes it more embarrassing...

1. Bolton force a rematch at the Reebok Stadium

It wasn't quite a repeat of the FA Cup fourth round's earlier drama on Saturday, but it does at least mean that Liverpool and Bolton will have to go to a replay. There is still the chance of an upset at the Reebok Stadium after this 0-0 draw at Anfield, and Bolton Wanderers and their coach Neil Lennon deserve huge credit...

When Manchester United's Eric Cantona attacked a fan in 1995

The ESPN FC crew revisit Eric Cantona's kung-fu kick against a Crystal Palace fan from over 20 years ago, where Cantona was suspended nine months from Manchester United.

On Jan. 25, 1995, with one ugly kick off the field, Eric Cantona managed to overshadow any of his most beautiful kicks on it. During a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace, the Manchester United forward had lost control, crossing the line in every sense: he threw himself, feet first, at Palace supporter Matthew Simmons.

Even before that night 20 years ago, Cantona had been labelled Le Brat by the French press. After a series of incidents in his homeland, he had announced his retirement from the game in 1991...

Emile Heskey to relish Bolton FA Cup tie with Liverpool

Bolton striker Emile Heskey, aged 37, will play against former club Liverpool this weekend.

The last time the call came to play for Liverpool, it wasn't the compliment it used to be for Emile Heskey. The striker was selected 223 times during the final four-and-a-half years of Gerard Houllier's reign, but this time he wasn't chosen by the Frenchman or his assistant Phil Thompson. Instead, he was summoned by his former strike partner Robbie Fowler.

Heskey had graduated to the seniors' circuit and was named in a Liverpool old boys' side to tour Asia in November. "When you get to a certain...

South American U20 Championships defined by exhaustion, tough schedule

Peru and Paraguay may have played out a dubious draw but blame the schedule more than anything.

Worst fears were realised when Group A came to a close in the South American Under-20 Championships.

Argentina had already booked their place in the decisive second stage. Behind them were three teams, Paraguay, Ecuador and Peru, all level on points. Two would join Argentina. One would be eliminated.

Ecuador had completed all their matches and could only watch from the sidelines, hoping for a decisive result in the match between the other two. But a draw between Paraguay and Peru would qualify...
