Chivas set dangerous precedent with Mexico no-show

Former U.S. international Brian McBride says Mexico is making a smart move by tapping into America's youth system.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- Once considered the natural base of the Mexican national team, Chivas have struggled badly to get players into El Tri in recent years. For a team that plays only with Mexican nationals, that is a damning indication of Chivas' present.

That situation, however, appeared to be changing for the first Mexico call-up of 2016, with coach Juan Carlos Osorio apparently interested in "eight" players -- according to Chivas owner Jorge Vergara -- for the domestic-based squad to face...

Assessing the first team chances of Tottenham's five best youngsters

The ESPN FC crew debate whether the current top four in the Premier League will remain there by the end of the season.

Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino spent January insisting that his "philosophy" is to promote young players, rather than sign new ones. True to his word, the transfer window shut on Monday without Spurs buying a senior player. The club has been left with one recognised centre-forward in Harry Kane and a shortage of options at centre-half -- at least while Jan Vertonghen is injured.

Pochettino, however, isn't worried. Joshua Onomah, who signed a new contract this week, is the latest academy product...

Dortmund cannot afford complacency in tricky trip to Hertha Berlin

Thomas Tuchel says victory away at third-place Hertha Berlin will send out a message to their Bundesliga rivals.

Borussia Dortmund's intense February, which sees them playing seven matches in just four weeks, begins in the German capital on Saturday where they will go up against third-place Hertha Berlin. Second vs. third should be considered a close encounter on Saturday afternoon -- and on the pitch, it might still be -- but there's already a 10-point gap between the two sides. BVB could make it 13 points with a win, making the direct qualification for the Champions League a forgone conclusion.

It's a...

Inter Milan need Geoffrey Kondogbia to step up vs. Hellas Verona

Inter Milan head coach Roberto Mancini took part in Inter's training session, and put on a show for his players.

The scene has been set for Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini. The success of his team's season has depended on results against the two Veronese clubs. A disastrous January saw the Milanese seemingly start to implode. They continually dropped points with a comedy of errors taking place with disturbing regularity. On Wednesday, in act one against Chievo, the Nerazzurri won and, for the coach the display was very much "as you like it."

Now, however, the plot thickens. Inter travel to the Stadio...

Pressure grows for Gary Neville, who knows he must deliver wins soon

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe discusses Gary Neville's managerial future following Valencia's 7-0 loss to Barcelona Wednesday.

Outside Valencia's Paterna training ground on Thursday, a camera filmed a small, angry group of fans chanting "Gary, vete ya" when there was a pause and a voice in the watching crowd asked: "Hey, does anyone know how you say that in English?" No one offered up the answer -- "Gary, go now!" -- but nor did they really need to. Gary Neville may not speak much Spanish yet but will understand what it means.

It was less than a week since a journalist had suggested that the fans were turning against him...

Oscar vital for Chelsea's future ... unlike John Terry

Guus Hiddink still believes Chelsea and Manchester United is still one of the biggest fixtures in the Premier League.

For the first time, Roman Abramovich must be getting twitchy. Chelsea's Russian owner changed the face of the Premier League 12 years ago when he arrived in England with fistfuls of roubles.

The oligarch billionaire transformed the west London club into a financial powerhouse, allowing the club to bully less wealthy rivals with huge transfer fees. Chelsea's riches seemed limitless and only the world's biggest teams could afford to rebuff Abramovich's advances for their players.

Imagine the shock...
