Pep Guardiola faces biggest challenge yet against former club Barcelona

The ESPN FC crew give their take on the SPI prediction that gives Barcelona a slight edge over Bayern Munich in the semifinals of the Champions League.

The wonder, and real key to the Champions League semifinal between Barcelona and Bayern Munich, is whether Pep Guardiola has by now found what he describes as the "flash of inspiration ... the moment that makes sense of my profession."

Because, by the time the Bayern coach returns to the luscious lights and 99,000 welcoming fans of the Camp Nou on Wednesday, Guardiola will hope to disappoint those same fans by drawing on what he has deduced from hours spent alone in a darkened room.

It is his preparation...

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...

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...

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...
