Nigeria and Oliseh inexperienced but must deal with Tanzania

Sunday Oliseh takes charge of Nigeria for the first time this weekend as they face Tanzania in African Nations Cup qualifying.

Nigeria's stand-in captain Ahmed Musa is the most experienced international in their squad to face Tanzania in African Nations Cup qualifying but he is only 22 and has just five years of international football under his belt.

Musa's situation is largely representative of the current Nigeria squad. With an average age of 23, many of the players have barely 10 caps.

Next to Musa is Godfrey Oboabona, who has only been playing since 2012 and has 43 caps. Emmanuel Emenike is next on 35, followed by Kenneth...

At St. George's Park, Geoff Pike's task is to coach England's coaches

The ESPN FC panel answer your tweets on the favourites to win Euro 2016, reveal their predictions for the player who will lead the Premier League in scoring and more.
England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has said that Wayne Rooney is more than likely to break the national all-time scoring record, when the Three Lions face San Marino in Euro 2016 qualifying on Saturday.

BURTON UPON TRENT, England -- Imagine it's June, 2016. England has just crashed out of the European Championships in France despite qualifying for the tournament without breaking a sweat. Despite taking his nation to a third major tournament, the calls will come for Roy Hodgson's removal and yet another overhaul.

But there are people working already on improving the future of football in England, regardless of what happens next summer in France.

Hodgson will be 70 by the time the 2018 World...

Everton manager Roberto Martinez hails Bill Kenwright, club's transfers

Everton legend Peter Reid says John Stones deserves credit for his professionalism during the transfer window, with Chelsea ultimately failing to secure the young defender from Goodison Park.
Everton's transfer window was nothing short of a success according to their manager, Roberto Martinez.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has told ESPN FC that his club demonstrated real ambition in the transfer window and that he hopes the business they completed this summer will sustain another strong challenge in the Premier League.

Martinez inspired a concerted push for Champions League football during his first season at Goodison Park, coming up two points short of a top-four finish in 2013-14 but struggling to maintain that momentum last season.

The demands of Europa League football took...

Barcelona retain Power Rankings top spot, followed by Bayern Munich

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe explains Barcelona's transfer ban and their lack of depth because of that.
ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik breaks down how Luis Suarez's movement on and off the ball makes him such a threat for Barcelona.

In the second edition of the 2015-16 Power Rankings, the top three stay the same, but there's movement below them.

1. Barcelona (no change)

Lionel Messi has yet to score in La Liga this season, but Barca have still won their first two games. Most recently, Thomas Vermaelen -- remember him? -- was the hero with the winner vs. Malaga. The Belgian defender's crucial contribution came as part of the impressive form he has shown while filling in for the suspended Gerard Pique.

2. Bayern Munich (no...

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol previews Scotland's European Championship qualifier against Georgia where he feels it is a must win scenario for his country.

The international break is upon us; here are five things to watch as qualification for Euro 2016 begins again.

Can Wales claim qualification?

When the latest FIFA world rankings were announced, it could not be ignored that Wales were above England in the standings for the first time. It's a clear recognition of the remarkable year that Chris Coleman's Wales have had, and a further indication of how extraordinary their achievement of topping Group B is. Belgium are second in those rankings and...

Slovakia's quiet star Juraj Kucka set to surprise many at AC Milan

Juraj Kucka made the move to Milan to continue his career this summer.

When Liverpool considered signing Genoa midfielder Juraj Kucka in the summer 2013, the Slovakian sounded quite excited. "That is good news. I can imagine what it would mean to wear the Liverpool shirt," he said. The move eventually didn't work out, but maybe that was for the better: Kucka is a self-confessed Manchester United fan whose biggest idol has always been Paul Scholes.

Kucka named Scholes as his role model on his own website and never missed an opportunity to hail the Old Trafford legend....
