Talking soccer with Wenger and Henry

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that there is not enough rest time between the World Cup and the start of the European season.

HARRISON, N.J. -- Arsene Wenger strode into the skybox high atop Red Bull Arena looking trim, fit and uncharacteristically serene for a man who is known to hurl plastic water bottles and frantically fiddle with the zipper of his oversized parka in moments of frustration -- of which there have been...

It wasn't Messi, but it was pretty

The ESPN FC panel break down the World Cup final and reveal that they were disappointed by the match, and believe Argentina may have deserved more.

The national drink of Brazil is no longer the caipirinha. It's been replaced by the salty tang of Argentinian tears.

While the host country's 7-1 humiliation in the semis will linger bitterly on the national palate for decades, at least the taste has been sweetened somewhat by their biggest rival...

Questions about the World Cup final

The World Cup team predict if the final will be open or a more defensive affair.

OK, so Argentina and Netherlands battled it out tooth, nail, clog and empanada, but after a World Cup filled with extra-time white-knucklers, Germany went ahead and bit off Brazil's entire arm. Maybe part of their torso, too. And given the anemic performance of the Albiceleste against the Dutch, ...

Lessons learned in the quarterfinals

Does Brazil have game-changers on the bench? Robbie Earle and Shaka Hislop discuss.

Sometimes, like all great works of art, the beautiful game has to go through an ugly stretch before it can achieve true gorgeousness. OK, so the quarterfinals this past weekend were not the thrilling, wild rides we'd come to expect based on the mayhem of the group stages and the round of 16. As t...

Lessons learned in the round of 16

Tim Howard is likely to return to the U.S. to a hero's welcome after his 16 saves against Belgium, but Belgium defeated the U.S. in extra time. With plenty of goals scored thus far, it's been the goalkeepers who've highlighted the Round of 16.

So it's on to the quarterfinals with all eight of the table toppers still standing, albeit many of them with a slight wobble.

The next round will have a tough act to follow in terms of rollicking entertainment and bite-your-fingernails-to-a-bloody-stump drama.

And the soccer wasn't bad, eithe...

A plea for Argentina's 'flea'

Argentina midfielder Maxi Rodriguez insists his side aren't underestimating last 16 opponents Switzerland.

All through the build-up to the World Cup, the question hovered in the air like a Brazilian news helicopter spying on a Chilean training session. How would Lionel Messi respond to the withering scrutiny of his countrymen -- a national cabal who await some tangible proof that he feels as much pride...
