Memorable April Fools' Day moments in German and Austrian football

In the digital age, April Fools' pranks have become so widespread in football that they now form their own comedic subgenre. According to the German social media charts website 10000flies.de, the most infectious April 1 joke in 2013 was spread by a football monthly, 11Freunde.

Jonathan dos Santos, Raul Jimenez excel for Mexico against Paraguay

A goal after just three minutes from Mexico's Eduardo Herrera would be all El Tri would need to secure a 1-0 win over Paraguay at Arrowhead Stadium.

Mexico collected another narrow 1-0 win, this time against Paraguay, but the performance was a world of difference from the victory against Ecuador last Saturday.

On Tuesday night, El Tri came out flying against Paraguay and played with the kind of energy that would typically be seen in a World Cup Qualifying match. The motivation for a spot in one of Mexico's two summer squads was highly apparent with multiple fringe El Tri options playing at their very best.

ZURICH -- For 80 minutes against Switzerland, it was arguably the most impressive performance the U.S. national team had produced since the World Cup.

Then forward Jozy Altidore was issued a game-changing -- and completely avoidable -- red card for a profanity-filled tirade on referee Luca Banti, forcing his teammates to play the final 22 minutes of the match down a man.

Three points on the 1-1 friendly draw between Italy and England on Tuesday.

1. Townsend saves England

Andros Townsend is a confirmed favourite of England manager Roy Hodgson. No wonder, since the Tottenham winger was the wild card who inspired his country at the tail end of qualification for the last World Cup. Hodgson wanted to take Townsend to Brazil before injury intervened, and the manager's admiration can only have been enhanced by Townsend's thrilling equaliser in Turin.
