Ecuador friendly reveals the flaws in Mexico's ambitious side

It was Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez's goal and Jose de Jesus Corona's penalty save that saw Mexico past Ecuador in an end-to-end thriller of an international friendly.

I may have been too foolish with my aspirations for El Tri on Saturday night. My prediction for the match was a 3-1 win for Mexico over Ecuador, which I was honestly second-guessing, thinking that perhaps 4-1 would be more appropriate.

That's the problem with hopes and dreams, nobody ever fantasizes about something realistic, it's always a bit outlandish.

If you ask any Mexico fan about their predictions for Saturday's game, I highly doubt most would have gone for a narrow and conservative 1-0...

Palace's Pardew and Jedinak deserve end of season award consideration

Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew says he hopes his players 'respond' to the Eagles fans who have been offered free coach travel to Stoke City for Saturday's Premier League game.

We're approaching that part of the season when the awards start to get polished, the tuxedos get ordered and the champagne gets put on ice, but will there be be any Palace staff celebrating? In a word, no. Despite impressing plenty and looking like they'll finish way higher than preseason expectations, out-performing plenty of bigger teams, there won't be any awards for Eagles players or managers come May.

The best chance the club has of being represented at a glitzy award ceremony is manager Alan...

Chile's conservative approach fails to pay dividends vs. Brazil

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson breaks down Brazil's narrow 1-nil victory over Chile.

Styles make fights, as the boxing writers say. And in the case of recent clashes between Brazil and Chile, the different approaches have consistently led to the same outcome: Chile press, take the game, but end up falling into the trap of those two modern Brazilian strengths, the set piece and the counter-attack.

And so it proved once again in London. Chile had the bulk of possession, and the foul count -- 15 by Chile, an extraordinary and depressing 32 by Brazil -- tells the story. But in a game...

Alejandro Bedoya is willing to be the United States' utility man

The ESPN FC panel discusses the United States men's national team's recent struggles following its promising World Cup performance.

ZURICH, Switzerland -- Alejandro Bedoya has gotten used to being something of a utilityman for French first-division side Nantes, where he's in the midst of a breakout season. But during his five-year career with the U.S. national team, the 27-year-old South Florida native has been deployed -- both by coach Jurgen Klinsmann and former boss Bob Bradley -- almost exclusively on the right wing.

That changed last week, when Bedoya lined up in the heart of the U.S. midfield in the Americans' 3-2 loss...

Roberto Firmino, not Neymar, gives Brazil a friendly win vs. Chile

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson breaks down Brazil's narrow 1-nil victory over Chile.

LONDON -- Three thoughts on Brazil's 1-0 friendly win vs. Chile.

1. Firmino wins it for Brazil

Brazil's victory -- their eighth in a row since the World Cup -- was sealed by substitute Roberto Firmino, who collected a 73rd-minute through ball from right-back Danilo, before rounding Claudio Bravo and finishing coolly, to earn Dunga's side their eighth victory in eight games since their World Cup nightmare ended.

Firmino is a recent addition to the Brazil squad, one of the players ushering in a new...
