 By Colin Udoh

Sunday Oliseh honeymoon over at Nigeria following first defeat

Vincent Enyeama, the Nigeria captain, has retired following a row with coach Sunday Oliseh.

DR Congo won 2-0 against Nigeria in Thursday evening's friendly to inflict a first defeat on new coach Sunday Oliseh. However, the build-up to the game was overshadowed by reports of a rift with goalkeeper and captain Vincent Enyeama, leading to the retirement of the country's record appearance holder.

Here's some things for the new coach to consider ...

Honeymoon over for Oliseh

New coaches usually enjoy a post-appointment honeymoon period with fans and media and Oliseh has been enjoying his...

Ecuador stun Argentina, Alexis Sanchez inspires Chile against Brazil

Argentina's World Cup qualifying campaign got off to a poor start with a shock defeat at home to Ecuador.

Opening defeats for Brazil against Chile and for Argentina at home to Ecuador -- welcome to the most competitive World Cup qualification campaign around.

Since its establishment in 1996, the marathon format in South America, with all 10 nations playing each other home and away, has resulted in a massive rise in standards. With regular competitive games and guaranteed income, the less traditional football nations have been able to grow.

Ecuador had their best ever World Cup in 2006, as did Paraguay...

The 10 greatest rivalries in international football

With the U.S. and Mexico set to resume their historic feud on Saturday, ESPN FC's editorial desks voted on the 10 greatest rivalries in international football. Nick Miller explains what makes each one so special.

10. France vs. Italy

France's Zinedine Zidane does battle with Italy's Fabio Cannavaro in the Euro 2000 final.

It's hardly a surprise, given that they're two of the great European powers, but France and Italy have faced each other in a remarkable number of high-profile and high-stakes games over the years. Games at the 1938, 1978, 1986 and 1998 World Cups brought various shades...

Theo Walcott is central for Arsenal. Can he be the same for England?

After Arsenal's resounding 3-0 win over Manchester United, the question is whether they can maintain that level over the course of a season.
ESPN FC's Stewart Robson talks about Arsenal's centre forward problem and the fact that Walcott is should not play up front.

It has been a nine-year journey for a player who has not gone anywhere. After arriving as a 16-year-old from Southampton in 2006, Theo Walcott is still at Arsenal, still the same unfailingly polite sprinter and one who many have argued is neither progressing nor regressing.

Walcott has always seemed emblematic of Arsenal: forever young, even when he was not particularly young anymore, and undoubtedly good but without the consistent brilliance that greatness requires. He epitomised the kind of player...

Liverpool made sense for Jurgen Klopp as Bayern Munich were not convinced

The ESPN FC panel talk about Jurgen Klopp's managerial skills after Liverpool have confirmed his appointment as their new manager to replace Brendan Rodgers.
The ESPN FC crew answer your tweets on a surprise top-four team in the Premier League, how Paul Pogba would fit in at Barcelona and whether or not Jurgen Klopp can turn around Liverpool's fortune.

In an interview with German weekly paper Die Zeit in 2012, Jürgen Klopp was asked if there were any hopes he had given up on. His answer: "I never had a crazy amount of hopes. Men are like that, I believe. We have a pragmatic approach to life. We deal with what's in front of us."

Not worrying about the big picture can be a useful approach. Klopp's endlessly repeated mantra during his three most successful seasons at Dortmund (two championships, one DFB Cup, runners-up in the Champions League...

Dier, Redmond, Zaha among wildcards for Hodgson's England in Euro 2016

Former England defender Ledley King believes youth is the key behind England's flying Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, having become the first side to book their place in the finals in France next year.

Whatever happens this week against Estonia and Lithuania in qualifying matches, England are going to the European Championships. And whatever happens on the pitch, we probably know the bulk of the squad already.

But who are the rank outsiders who might make a late break for inclusion? Who are England's wildcards? ESPN FC asked Iain Macintosh to look down manager Roy Hodgson's long list.

Once considered England's right-back for the coming decade, Micah Richards won only 13 caps and hasn't played...
