Venezuela players revolt as World Cup dream dies once again

Venezuela players trudge off after defeat to Brazil in October.

Venezuela missed the optimum chance to make their World Cup debut when they failed to reach Brazil 2014. With the hosts qualifying automatically there was an extra place available for a South American team -- and Venezuela had their best-ever group of players, good enough to beat Argentina in one of the early rounds.

But their campaign fell away as they failed to score enough goals, and the chance was gone.

Russia 2018 always looked difficult. A generation of players are coming to the end of their...

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang beats Neymar, tops Player Power Rankings

Alexis Nunes sits down with ESPN FC's Craig Burley to get his take on this week's top performers.

Each week, ESPN FC's worldwide editorial desks nominate their top 10 performers from the weekend action and the results are collated into a final Player Power Rankings countdown.

Let us know what you think of the countdown by commenting below or on Twitter using #ESPNFCrankings.

1. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) 

Two goals at the weekend vs. Stuttgart took his season total to a remarkable 22 in all competitions. If such a tally at this point of the season is not impressive...

Premier League's lack of quality means more excitement this season

Anthony RIchardson brings you the best (and worst) of an eventful weekend in the Prem.

Tottenham vs. Chelsea on Sunday seemed like it might be the biggest and most interesting game of the season. Tottenham, a relative upstart in fine form and with plenty backing them for an unlikely title bid, against Chelsea, reigning champions who have suffered a calamitous start, but who had shown some signs of life in their previous couple of fixtures. Expectation was high.

But, as is so often the case when hopes are raised, disappointment followed. The first-half was by no means dull, erring...

Lionel Messi to win Ballon d'Or, but does Ronaldo deserve his place?

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says World Player of the Year will come down to Ronaldo and Messi, regardless of other nominees.

The three-man shortlist for the 2015 FIFA Ballon d'Or has been announced with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo alongside Neymar.

While Messi is likely to walk away with the prize, Ronaldo's place in the final three is more on reputation that anything he's achieved, and he may even lose out to Neymar in the final vote. In truth, Luis Suarez probably deserves a place on the podium more.

Here ESPN FC looks at the three players in with a chance of being named "best in the world," as well as three...

Alan Pardew's day of joy, and what if Diego Costa's bib hit Jose Mourinho?

Diego Costa appeared frustrated in remaining an unused substitute as Chelsea played Tottenham, and threw his warm-up bib.
Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew believes their victory against Newcastle United have put them back on track.
Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce notes the impact substitute Duncan Watmore made in his side's 2-0 win over Stoke City.
Jurgen Klopp says he's unconcerned with the narrow margin Liverpool's win over Swansea, and believes his side is improving.
Eddie Howe reacts to the dramatic scenes in their 3-3 draw with Everton.

With another round of the 2015-16 Premier League season done and dusted, Iain Macintosh runs the rule over the Heroes and Villains of the weekend.


Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew just about managed to keep a straight face in public. Imagine what his face would have looked like in private. Imagine the celebrations after his side's 5-1 destruction of Newcastle United on Saturday. After the manner of his exit from St James' Park at the end of last year, following months of abuse from the stands,...
