Remembering Rooney, Owen and Shearer on their England debuts

Take a look inside England's training as Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Harry Kane and more test their skills with some great goals and saves.
Could Harry Kane, left, follow in Alan Shearer's footsteps and score a goal on his England senior team debut?

Last week was the best of his whole life, said Tottenham's striker Harry Kane after a Saturday hat trick against Leicester City had followed his first call-up for England's senior squad.

This next week might be even better, should he score against Lithuania on Friday or Italy on March 31. If that happens, then this really could be Harry's game.

Alternatively, Kane might hit the buffers, and find that international football is a step up from the Premier League. Playing for England is a different...

LISBON, Portugal -- At 5 p.m the Benfica supporters start to march from their own stadium into the enemy's heartland. It's Sunday, Feb. 8, 2015. They have been gathering outside the Estadio da Luz for around two hours. Once the number of red shirts reaches 2,500, the...

Barcelona stay top as Juventus close in with PSG and Chelsea also climbing

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop reveals his latest power rankings for this week which feature Arsenal's inclusion in the Top 10.
ESPN FC's Sid Lowe believes there is a high probability that Barcelona will drop points before season's end and afford Real Madrid an opportunity to win La Liga.
The ESPN FC panel discuss an incredible weekend in the world of football with Manchester United's win and Barcelona's El Clasico victory highlighting the action.

With the last international break of the season upon us, club sides are taking a breather ahead of one final push. The latest edition of the Power Rankings shows that Barcelona continue to be in the rudest of health.

1. Barcelona (no change)

It was all about the Clasico in Spain last weekend and Barca prevailed, thanks to a set-piece goal and a moment of sheer quality from Luis Suarez. It all means that, with 10 games to go, Luis Enrique's men have a four-point lead in La Liga. There's a long way...

Raffael, the No. 9.5 who embarrassed Manuel Neuer

Manuel Neuer's blunder allowed Raffael to open the scoring at Bayern Munich on Sunday.

What are the chances of getting a birthday present from Manuel Neuer? Borussia Monchengladbach's Raffael Caetano de Araujo, known simply as Raffael by all in Germany, turns 30 on Saturday, and he should have plenty of cause to celebrate after the shock 2-0 win at Bayern Munich. The Bavarian giants lost a meaningful home league game for the first time since October 2012, with Raffael taking centre stage with a brace.

Both of the shots should have been routine saves for the Bayern goalkeeper, and...

English strikers are back on top form in the 2014-15 Premier League season

Take a look inside England's training as Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Harry Kane and more test their skills with some great goals and saves.
England manager Roy Hodgson has attempted to dampen the hype surrounding Harry Kane, after handing the Tottenham striker his first England call-up.

Harry Kane's rise has been so swift, so startling and so seemingly unstoppable that there seems to be an unofficial competition to make the most outlandish prediction about his prowess and progress. So here is one: The Tottenham striker could prove a once-in-a-millennium player.

Or, to clarify and place in its proper context, Kane stands a fine chance of becoming the first Englishman to claim the Premier League's Golden Boot in a season that started in the 21st century.

Not since Kevin Phillips scored...

Vicente del Bosque looks to replicate Spain's club dynamic before Euro 2016

Spain manager Vicente del Bosque says his side will treat Ukraine with respect ahead of their crucial Euro 2016 qualifier on Friday.
The Spanish Football Federation have confirmed Chelsea's Diego Costa will miss Spain's upcoming internationals with a hamstring injury.

How the mighty have fallen.

This time last year, Spain were champions of the world, blissfully unaware of the humiliation that would follow a few months later when they tried to defend their World Cup trophy. Fast-forward to the present and the effects of the debacle in Brazil are still being felt. The latest edition of the FIFA World Ranking saw La Roja drop out of the top 10 for the first time in eight years.

Spain are still European champions, however, and building a side capable of defending...
