Pirlo will be missed at Juventus


CONCACAF's attempt at reform raises serious questions

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer questions the impact CONCACAF's new reform will have.

CONCACAF announced a reform framework earlier on Monday, but a former member of FIFA's independent governance committee remains unimpressed, saying the announcement lacks sufficient detail to tell if it will result in real reform.

CONCACAF's proposed framework -- made in the wake of federal indictments to some of its top officials -- covers three areas including governance, fraud prevention and transparency. The governance section includes proposals for such things as an as yet unspecified number...

Andrea Pirlo improved Juventus' culture and will be missed

The ESPN FC crew discuss the impact Andrea Pirlo will have in Major League Soccer after Juventus recently confirmed the midfielder's move.

"Being a Juventino is to carry oneself with pride and dignity. Till the very end as President [Andrea] Agnelli would say," wrote Andrea Pirlo in his book I Think Therefore I Play.

A player of immense ability, a magician with the ball and a leader off it, Italy's great playmaker has waved goodbye to Juventus and its adoring fans to begin a new adventure with New York City FC in MLS.

A man who arrived from the red and black side of Milan, Juventus were once the enemy. However, having landed in Turin,...

Bora Milutinovic favors U.S. over Mexico for Gold Cup trophy

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner predicts United States to win the Gold Cup, especially with some injuries some rivals have to deal with.

A former head coach of Mexico, the United States, Honduras, Costa Rica and Jamaica, Bora Milutinovic understands the complexities of the CONCACAF region and its forces at work better than most. And with the Gold Cup getting underway on Tuesday, the experienced tactician is picking the hosts as slight favorites to lift the trophy on July 26 in Philadelphia.

"The logical favorites are the United States because they play at home and because they are looking for revenge for the game they lost in Los...

Arsenal defensive midfield needs to be more than just Coquelin

Petr Cech has said he still has the desire to play regular first-team football, and believes he can receive that at Arsenal.

Having been sent on loan to Charlton in November 2014, Francis Coquelin must have thought his chances of making at Arsenal were almost non-existent.

He was dropping down a division, he seemed to have an endless succession of midfielders ahead of him in North London, and the manager's faith in him was such that he'd been shipped out for the duration of the previous season to Freiburg.

When the call came for him to come back, just before a big game for his temporary club, Coquelin was annoyed because...

Five things to watch for the U.S. at the 2015 Gold Cup

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner predicts United States to win the Gold Cup, especially with some injuries some rivals have to deal with.

FRISCO, Texas -- The U.S. kicks off its CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign here on Tuesday night against Honduras, with what coach Jurgen Klinsmann and his players hope will be the first of six matches over the next three weeks, culminating with the July 26 finale in Philadelphia. Only a championship will do for the hosts. But while Klinsmann's team enters as the clear favorite, defending its regional title and automatically qualifying for the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia isn't a foregone conclusion....

Idle Sporting KC remains top as Sounders climb up Power Rankings

Relive the top moments from week 18 in Major League Soccer including Kaka's red, Robbie Keane's hat trick and more.

The first week of July was the first week of the MLS schedule being seriously impacted by Gold Cup absences. Combined with a theme of defensive gaffs, those missing names changes some things in the Power Rankings.

1. Sporting Kansas City (no change)

Sporting sat this week out ahead of a trip to Vancouver next weekend.

2. Seattle Sounders (+1)

All hail Tyrone Mears. After 88 minutes of drab soccer, the Sounders full-back found himself in the right place at the right time. Without Clint Dempsey...
