Five things to watch vs. Paraguay

 By David Usher

Mignolet has excelled for Liverpool but a new backup GK is needed

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry played a charity match at Anfield with Steven Gerrard's all-star cast against Jamie Carragher's XI.
ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth and Ross Dyer weigh in on the impact that Daniel Sturridge's latest injury will have on Liverpool and their top four hopes.

At the end of 2014 ESPN FC asked its club bloggers to answer some questions on their team's needs going into the transfer window. Liverpool were in dire straits back then and looked like they needed strengthening all over the park, but I listed the two main priorities as goalkeeper and striker.

Three months on, the continuing injury woes of Daniel Sturridge and lack of production from any of the other forwards show that Liverpool really could have benefitted from signing a new striker, but not bringing...

AC Milan announce partnership with Hello Kitty

It seems like it simply must be a premature April Fool's joke but alas, it appears to be true: AC Milan have announced a brand-new partnership deal with Hello Kitty.

According to a statement on the official Milan site, Milan have buddied up with Sanrio, the Japanese company behind Hello Kitty, with the intention of creating an "exclusive co-branding project."

"Together, the two...

Ramsey, Wilshere and Oxlade-Chamberlain in Arsenal spotlight

Arsenal announced five new contracts in December 2012 with Carl Jenkinson, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all signing new deals.

In December 2012, Arsenal proudly announced that five players had signed new deals with the club.

Carl Jenkinson, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sat there posing with contracts in front of them and boss Arsene Wenger standing proudly behind.

It was a British core, as Wenger described it. A response, perhaps, to players born abroad who don't have the same connection with a club, making it easier for them to jump ship when things don't go the way they want or...

Terry has a new Chelsea deal but are Zouma and Varane the future?

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer says John Terry re-upping for one more year is crucial pillar for Jose Mourinho to continue his pursuit of the Champions League crown.

Last week's announcement that John Terry had signed a new one-year contract was welcomed by Chelsea supporters.

Despite being 34 and at the veteran stage of his career, the man they refer to as "Captain, Leader, Legend" has been playing some of the best football of his career this season, featuring in every Premier League game so far.

Terry has had a hugely influential role in Jose Mourinho's bid to bring the title back to Chelsea but he cannot keep playing forever.

At the start of the campaign,...

Dani Alves deals with questions by singing them away

Strange as it may seem, we here at Toe Poke aren't constantly badgered by hordes of reporters camped out on our doorstep day and night desperate for quotes and photos but we can image that kind of thing gets very old, very quickly.

Dani Alves, in his infinite wisdom, seems to have devised a foolproof method of dealing with such relentless hassle.

Finding himself being harangued by a clucking gaggle of media bods while attempting to make his way through the airport on Monday, Alves first ignored...

Herrera's Mexico must improve at the back and show progress up front

Mexico coach Miguel Herrera says his side's next friendly against Paraguay will be a good warm-up for the Copa America.
The ESPN FC team discuss Javier Hernandez's frustration with his lack of match action since joining Real Madrid on loan, but Craig Burley believes Chicharito has since lost his confidence after his first season with Manchester United.

Mexico will end its short tour of the United States on Tuesday with a friendly vs. Paraguay in Kansas City, Mo. (9 ET, ESPN2 and WatchESPN)

With Guillermo Ochoa, Miguel Layun, Hector Herrera, Andres Guardado, and Jesus "Tecatito" Corona all back in Europe, manager Miguel "Piojo" Herrera will give chances to a number of backup players, just as he has done in the second game of recent past FIFA dates.

The main loss for El Tri is Jurgen Damm. The 22-year-old Pachuca midfielder played for less than 10...
