Four key battles in the FA Cup final

WhoScored: Di Maria leads in one key stat

Tactics & Analysis

Why have Podolski, Klose and Crouch shone for country more than club?

Miroslav Klose, left, and Lukas Podolski, right, have been Germany stalwarts despite often indifferent club form.

It's impossible not to admire Lukas Podolski's determination.

In the aftermath of Germany's World Cup victory last summer, it seemed inevitable the forward would announce his retirement from international football, bowing out on a high. The likes of Per Mertesacker, Miroslav Klose and Philipp Lahm all said goodbye but Podolski, by then an almost perennial substitute, clung on.

His club form over the past 18 months has been highly disappointing. At Arsenal he dropped out of the first team, partly...

Pogba, Vidal, Ramos, Di Maria and Schweinsteiger: big names to move?

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe reacts to recent reports that Sergio Ramos is trying to force through a transfer to Manchester United.
ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik and Alexis Nunes discuss what moves, if any, do Chelsea and Jose Mourinho need to make in this summer's transfer market.

The transfer market has been action-packed already this summer and that's before the window has even officially opened. July 1 is the start of the two-month period when clubs are allowed to recruit new players and there are some seriously big names on the market.

Here's a look at five genuine superstars who could be on the move this summer ... and where they might end up.

Paul Pogba

The French midfielder is arguably the major star available and, if he does leave Juventus, his transfer fee will surely...

Roberto Firmino will need a well-defined role at Liverpool to succeed

The ESPN FC panel discuss Roberto Firmino's transfer from Hoffenheim to Liverpool, where Craig Burley believes he's not the player Liverpool need right now.

Roberto Firmino is a classic Liverpool signing, at least in the Brendan Rodgers era. He's a young, talented, technical attacker with room to develop further into a genuinely world-class footballer, and capable of being moulded into the particular type of player Rodgers desires. That assumes, however, that Rodgers knows exactly what he wants from Firmino.

Firmino's position has been the subject of debate. Some English newspapers reported Liverpool had signed a new forward, others described him instead...

U21 European Championship: Five players to shine in the Czech Republic

Sergio Oliveira
Sergio Oliveira will look to make his mark at Porto after impressing.

A dramatic end to the under-21 European Championship group stages saw underdogs Sweden reach the semifinals at the expense of both Italy and England. An 89th minute equaliser from substitute Simon Tibbling against Portugal meant that Hakan's Ericson's side set up an all-Scandinavian battle with Denmark in the final four courtesy of their head-to-head record against the Azzurrini, whom they came from behind to beat with 10-men in the group B opener.

Meanwhile Germany's inability to beat hosts Czech...

Defensive forwards a common trait among Europe's elite

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson and Steve Nicol assess Man City's potential transfer targets and predict which ones will end up at the Etihad.

Ask an Arsenal supporter about their memories of the "Invincibles" season of 2003-04, and they'll probably mention Thierry Henry's goal return, Dennis Bergkamp's creative genius or Robert Pires' tricky wing play. But one of the most exhilarating parts of Arsenal's play was, somewhat surprisingly, when their star man conceded possession.

Henry's poor touches were few and far between, but when a misplaced pass went to an opponent rather than a teammate, the Frenchman made it his own personal mission...

Neymar's brilliance and immaturity have been on display at Copa America

The ESPN FC panel highlight the many issues that Brazil encountered against Colombia in their 1-0 Copa America loss.

There was a time not long ago when Brazil boasted countless world-class attackers.

It was a time when, for example, Marcio Amoroso could finish as top goal scorer in Brazil, Italy and Germany, but count himself fortunate simply to be named in the Brazil squad. Mario Jardel scored 130 goals in 125 league games for Porto and collected only 10 caps, usually as a substitute. Giovane Elber, meanwhile, spent a decade banging in the Bundesliga goals and managed just 15 caps.

Arguably all three would...
