TOP STORY: Tottenham to cut losses on Son

What can Nigeria learn from their Olympic football campaign?

John Obi Mikel celebrates Nigeria's 3-2 win over Honduras in the bronze medal match.

Surrounded by a chaotic buildup to the Games, including a war of words between Nigeria's Sports Ministry and football federation, the Olympic football team delivered the country's lone medal from Rio.

Bronze it may have been, but seeing as it was a very marginal improvement (cough cough) over the grand total of zero from 2012, there was some reason to be, well, less glum.

In any case, there are a four key lessons to take away from Dream Team VI's face-saving campaign:

Michy Batshuayi shines in full debut vs. Bristol Rovers, Chelsea defence shaky

A fightback from League One side Bristol Rovers in the EFL Cup will have Antonio Conte asking questions about his defence.

Chelsea progressed to the next round of the EFL Cup at the expense of Bristol Rovers, but they were made to work harder than expected at Stamford Bridge by the League One outfit whose endeavours were fairly reflected by the final scoreline of 3-2.

The Blues dominated the first half, and two quick goals in succession around the half-hour mark from Michy Batshuayi and Victor Moses suggested the floodgates might open, but Rovers battled back, and Peter Hartley reduced the arrears moments later.

Nainggolan's work rate cancelled out by De Rossi's red card in loss to Porto

Radja Nainggolan was one of the only players who looked up to the challenge in a frustrating 3-0 loss to Porto.

Roma captain Daniele De Rossi led the charge with a foolish 38th-minute straight red card as Roma two-footed their first leg advantage from the Champions League playoff with Porto straight into the Stadio Olimpico showers, where they were promptly flushed into the sewer.

Having conceded an appallingly soft goal in the seventh minute when Felipe was given a free header six yards out from Otavio's deep free kick, Roma came back at Porto only for De Rossi to fly into Maxi Pereira's shins. Emerson repeated...

Mexico Hot List: Porto duo Layun and Corona score in huge UCL playoff win

Miguel Layun scored Porto's second goal in a crucial 3-0 Champions League playoff win over Roma.

With a little over a week to go until Mexico's first of two World Cup qualifiers against El Salvador, manager Juan Carlos Osorio is keeping an eye on his available roster options. After a dismal summer which featured embarrassing exits from the Copa America and Olympics, Osorio will be keen to bring in players who can help Mexico regain much-needed morale with wins.

Keeping this in mind, let's take a look at the best and worst performances from some of Mexico's most noteworthy players.

Mane stars and Sturridge scores twice as Liverpool return to winning ways

The ESPN FC crew recap Liverpool's 5-0 win over Burton Albion in the EFL Cup.

A very strong Liverpool side played well and had far too much for the hosts. One or two injury worries aside, this was a good workout for a team that needed to rediscover its shooting boots after a dismal league defeat at Burnley on Saturday.

Positives

Two goals from Daniel Sturridge hold out some hope that he can make a lasting contribution to Liverpool's league form this season. The Reds reached the next round without any real problems.
