Chicharito Hernandez and Jesus Corona lead Mexico over Ecuador

Mexico's Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez spoke to ESPN FC's John Sutcliffe following his side's international friendly win over Ecuador, and noted the importance of team development in these types of matches.

Mexico head coach Miguel Herrera will no doubt be encouraged in general by what he observed in Mexico's 1-0 friendly victory over Ecuador in Los Angeles, but there are some elements that will remind him there is still much for the team to improve.

With two tournaments coming up that require different rosters in short order, though, Herrera has some tough choices to make. Others should be easier. Here are three things to take away from the Ecuador game.

Jose de Jesus Corona the hero in goal as Mexico edge out Ecuador

Mexico's Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez spoke to ESPN FC's John Sutcliffe following his side's international friendly win over Ecuador, and noted the importance of team development in these types of matches.

Mexico scraped by Ecuador on Saturday night with a narrow 1-0 victory at a sold-out match in the Los Angeles Coliseum.

Thanks to a massive performance from goalkeeper Jose de Jesus Corona -- and a goal from striker Javier Hernandez -- El Tri will start 2015 with a victory in hand.

Despite the win, there are still a few defensive and midfield problems that Mexico manager Miguel "Piojo" Herrera must address before the summer. El Tri will partake in the Gold Cup and Copa America tournaments in just...

Gareth Bale and Luka Modric could return to Premier League

Summer moves at the Bernabeu may push Luka Modric out the door.
Summer moves at the Bernabeu may push Luka Modric out the door.

As the summer window draws ever closer, the transfer rumours and gossip continue to spread.

Man City to launch move for Modric?

Would Real Madrid really let another unsung midfielder leave the Bernabeu? Carlo Ancelotti's side are beginning to feel the effects of watching Xabi Alonso leave for Bayern Munich last summer, and the Star now reports that Manchester City will lead the race for Luka Modric come the end of the season.

The 29-year-old playmaker could be surplus to requirements for Los...

Manchester United must spend more wisely with player transactions

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno wonders if we will see Radamel Falcao feature again for Manchester United this season.

Following Manchester United these days includes a hefty amount of keeping an eye on the financial fortunes of their players.

The new contract Wayne Rooney signed last season gathered at least as much attention as the goals he scored and informs supporters opinions as much as the football he plays. Football fans are paying customers and, via a circuitous route, their money tends to end up in the pockets of the players. They have a right to know who is earning what and whether or not they are getting...

Brazil's Dunga is having a positive impact in his second stint as manager

Goals from Neymar and Luiz Gustavo led Brazil's second-half charge as the Selecao overcame France on their way to a 3-1 victory.
Brazil head coach Dunga has already reminded his players that the pressure will again be on to win their next international fixture against Chile,
France head coach Didier Deschamps and defender Raphael Varane admit their side still has room for improvement after they lost 3-1 to Brazil at the Stade de France.
The ESPN FC crew discuss the difference makers and talking points from Brazil's 3-1 comeback victory over France.

To a certain extent, it was laughable that so many Brazilian media outlets referred to the 1998 World Cup final during the build-up and post-match reaction of France vs. Brazil's recent friendly. Even if Brazil had won 18-0, instead of the 3-1 result that they posted on Thursday, the disappointment in losing the world title to the French 17 years ago still lingers.

Yet, there was a feel-good wave after the Selecao's win that was interesting for another reason. Almost nine months after taking charge...

Claudio Marchisio injury reaction reflects poorly on Juventus

Italy's team doctor has shed light on Claudio Marchisio's injury after conflicting reports on the amount of time he will be sidelined for.

The word to describe the matter is "bizarre." On Friday morning it was revealed that Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio had suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury while on international duty and would be out for 6-8 months. The tests were made by the medical staff of the Italian national team, thus sparking controversy. Alleged death threats were made to Italy coach Antonio Conte, who has incurred the wrath of his former club for the injury to a player sorely needed by Juve at this crucial...
