Fernandinho and Casemiro lead the game's most underrated midfielders

Fernandinho is a classic box-to-box player but has adapted to life under Pep Guardiola at Man City. He's now more of a deep-lying creator.

Football has never been so obsessed with individual brilliance and star power given the quality on show, but not everyone can be the hero. There remains a place for the humble, workmanlike and dependable holding midfielder. Here are five who have been in particularly good form this season.

Fernandinho, Manchester City

City's title challenge seemed to falter during the Christmas period when they suffered back-to-back defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester. Notably, it was also the first two...

Juventus' twin towers of Ronaldo, Mandzukic to provide a unique test for Atletico's stingy defence

With two aerial specialists in Mario Mandzukic and Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus are a bit of a throwback and present a unique challenge to any defence.
With two aerial specialists in Mario Mandzukic and Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus are a bit of a throwback and present a unique challenge to any defence.

It might not provide the most enthralling technical football of the Champions League round of 16, but there's something wonderfully intriguing about the tie between Atletico Madrid and Juventus, the first leg of which takes place on Wednesday evening.

These are effectively the two nearly-men of the last half-decade in this competition, both defeated finalists twice: Atletico losing to Real Madrid in 2014 and 2016, Juventus falling to Barcelona and Real in 2015 and 2017. But that status, and...

Tragedy in the Vulture's Nest: The preventable death of 10 rising stars at Flamengo

Vinicius Vital cries during the funeral of his friend Arthur Vinicius, one of 10 young soccer players who lost their lives after the fire at Flamengo.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- Fifteen-year-old Christian Esmerio's funeral on a 95 degree Sunday packed the humble chapel at Rio's Iraja cemetery well beyond capacity, with photographers and television crews jostling for space along cracked sidewalks.

Burials in front of the media are rare here. Most people laid to rest are fameless residents of the working-class suburbs, where Esmerio was born to a 20-year-old recent high school graduate and a 23-year-old street vendor. But Esmerio, a goalkeeper,...

Photo story: Landon Donovan's indoor soccer debut with San Diego Sockers

Landon Donovan, left, battles with Cory Keitz of the Tacoma Stars.

SAN DIEGO -- The play was vintage Landon Donovan. A right-footed pass took three defenders and the goalkeeper out of the play, allowing a teammate to score at the far post. The crowd roared, his teammates celebrated.

At which point, one could not help but notice the surroundings. The venue was not Dignity Health Sports Park, the renamed home of Donovan's beloved LA Galaxy. Nor was it any of the World Cup venues he has graced over the years. Rather, it was the 62-year-old Pechanga Arena -- formerly...
