Three Points -- Arsenal vs. Man United

ESPN FC's Craig Burley wasn't impressed by either Arsenal or Manchester United in Saturday's feature match.

LONDON -- A trio of observations from Manchester United's 2-1 win vs. Arsenal in the Premier League.

1. Old-school United sink Arsenal

Dominance, calamity and then agony. Even when Arsenal and Manchester United are in the reduced circumstances of beginning their day in sixth and seventh, the game plan is the same. Wayne Rooney's 80th minute strike, United's second goal, was a repeat of a formula that Sir Alex Ferguson revealed in his autobiography: Let Arsenal play, intercept and then counterattack.

1. The best of the Blues

So this is what full-strength Chelsea look like: utterly frightening. They beat 10-man West Brom 2-0, but those relatively sparse facts don't even begin to reveal their brilliance in this game, and just how awesome the league leaders can look.

Diego Costa again scored after finally getting an extended rest; Cesc Fabregas again set up a goal; and the entire team looked scintillating...

After Ireland rout, U.S. veterans say team needs to regain their fight

Ireland handled matters quite easily in Aviva Stadium with a 4-1 win over the United States.

DUBLIN -- Even the eternally optimistic Jurgen Klinsmann struggled to find a silver lining after this one. There was just no sugarcoating it. The national team's 4-1, year-ending friendly loss to Ireland on Tuesday was ugly. The lopsided result here matched the worst of Klinsmann's three-plus years in charge, when the U.S. was routed by Brazil in May 2012.

Three Points: Scotland vs. England

Wayne Rooney scored a brace to guide the Three Lions to a 3-1 victory over Scotland at Celtic Park.

GLASGOW -- A trio of observations on England's 3-1 win vs. Scotland.

1. Rooney inspires "Auld Enemy"

It was a night of England's glory. Roy Hodgson's team revealed clear superiority over Scotland, who had no answer to the "Auld Enemy" and the ruthless finishing of their forwards.

Wayne Rooney scored his 45th and 46th international goals to move within three of Sir Bobby Charlton's England record and, in doing so, reminded of his continuing ability as a pure centre forward. 

His first came...

Three Points: Spain vs. Germany

A late, long-range strike from Toni Kroos handed Spain their first loss at home in 34 games.

VIGO, Spain -- Three quick points from Germany's 1-0 win over Spain in Tuesday's friendly meeting at Celta Vigo's Balaidos ground...

1. Kroos missile decides meeting of two experimental sides

The meeting between the last two world champions was always going to attract attention and each coach talked beforehand about their respect for their counterpart and wish to put on a good show. But this game caught both sides in transition -- after respective unexpected slip ups in qualifying for Euro 2016,...

Ronaldo and Lionel Messi face off in Portugal's 1-0 win over Argentina

Argentina head coach Tata Martino believes his side did not deserve to lose 1-0 to Portugal after having the majority of the game's chances.

MANCHESTER, England -- Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo faced off at Old Trafford, a friendly in which Raphael Guerreiro gave Portugal the 1-0 win over Argentina at the death. Here are three points from the match. 

1. Messi and Ronaldo draw a rare blank

They are forever together, much as it may irritate both. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, men who have taken their games to a greater height because of competition from the other, players whose trophy...
