Carlos Vela the sole exception in Tuca Ferretti's Liga MX-heavy Mexico squad

Mexico stars Andres Guardado and Raul Jimenez give their take on their first training session with interim coach Ricardo Ferretti.

In relying heavily on players based in Liga MX for the games leading up to and including the crucial Confederations Cup playoff against the U.S., perhaps new Mexico interim coach Ricardo "Tuca" Ferretti is taking a page out of Miguel Herrera's book on how to turn a temporary post into a permanent gig.

After all, against New Zealand in the crucial playoff to earn a berth at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Herrera dispatched with all the European-based stars and selected a Mexico squad made up purely...

Five questions for Jurgen Klinsmann's U.S. side ahead of Peru friendly

The ESPN FC panel discuss Jurgen Klinsmann's decision to keep Brad Guzan as the USMNT's number one keeper for the time being.

The U.S. men's national team has had more than a month to stew over its performances in the Gold Cup. Even if you take into account the 6-0 hammering of Cuba in the quarterfinals -- which was little more than a glorified scrimmage -- there was little with which to be overly impressed.

The Americans ultimately paid for their lack of sharpness. A 2-1 semifinal defeat to Jamaica not only knocked the U.S. out of the tournament, it forced it into a one-game playoff against Mexico for the right to play...

Man Utd's summer signings predicted by Nostradamus 460 years ago

The ESPN FC crew share their thoughts on the overall success of Manchester United's transfer window.

Noticing a distinct pattern emerging in Manchester United's summer dealings, Reddit user GrabbingTheBrassRing decided to leaf through Nostradamus' historical tome "The Prophecies" for answers.

He was duly rendered agog (with tongue firmly entrenched in cheek) after being astonished to discover that almost all of the club's main transfer ins and outs had been predicted some 460 years ago. Well, sort of anyway.

First up was Memphis Depay's £25 million acquisition, which Nostradamus indisputably...

Paul Pogba finds France teammate Kurt Zouma with backside pass

With the France squad currently limbering up ahead of their friendly against Portugal on Friday, Les Bleus twosome Paul Pogba and Kurt Zouma decided to take a few moments out their rigorous training session to show off their skills.

After firing off a couple of kick-ups, Pogba lightened the mood by firing off a no-look pass to Zouma using nothing but his backside -- sorry, his derrière ...

Man City's UCL adventure comes too soon for Iheanacho and Roberts

ESPN FC's Stevie Nicol thinks Manchester City's stellar start is more than just a fluke; he says manager Manuel Pellegrini's transfers this summer have all made sense.
Kelechi Iheanacho has missed out on the City squad.

Manchester City may now be relatively free of the constraints placed upon them by their punishment under the financial fair play regulations, but -- as the club announced its Champions League squad for the group stage of this season's competition -- there actually seems to be little change in how they're setting up. Perhaps this shows how ineffectual the reduction in squad size was for the last campaign, or perhaps it's more a demonstration of astuteness on the club's part to cope.

Either way, Manuel...

Mexico depth chart shaken up by new coach Ricardo "Tuca" Ferretti

Mexico stars Andres Guardado and Raul Jimenez give their take on their first training session with interim coach Ricardo Ferretti.

SALT LAKE CITY -- Depth charts are supposed to show the smooth, natural progression of a national team over time, with older players getting nudged out as younger ones emerge. For Mexico, however, it is rarely that straightforward.

The 15 coaching regime changes since 1999 and the short-term nature of the position of the national team head coach position leads to plans and rational transitions going out of the window, to be replaced by a rush to put a team together for whatever big game or situation...
