Cape Verde's journey from potential to promise completed with Portugal win

Cape Verde's 2-0 win in Portugal on Tuesday will be remembered for years to come.
Cape Verde's 2-0 win in Portugal on Tuesday will be remembered for years to come.

People come of age when they move from adolescence to adulthood, but for sports teams that journey is a little more complicated. Theirs is not so much about growing up as it about getting better, which is why Cape Verde's passage from potential to real promise was completed on Tuesday night.

They beat hosts Portugal 2-0 to move from colonised to conquerors. Although the fine print will reveal that the Islanders overcame a second-string Portuguese side with a debutant goalkeeper, and who were...

Filippo Inzaghi's possible successors at Milan are starting to queue up

ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti discusses the current form of AC Milan, and the future of coach Pippo Inzaghi.

It wouldn't be a normal week concerning Milan without a fresh batch of rumours regarding Filippo Inzaghi's position as head coach, and his potential replacements. Coupled with the international break, the rumour mill seemingly went into overdrive with a whole host of names being linked with the Rossoneri hot seat.

Prior to assessing those options, it is worth noting that Milan are in an almost identical situation now as they were this time last year. What that suggests is that little to no progress...

Mascherano vital to Argentina's Copa America campaign

Argentina manager Gerardo Martino apologised after his side beat Ecuador 2-1 on Tuesday night without Lionel Messi at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

At the 2004 Copa America in Peru, Javier Mascherano was a newcomer to the Argentina team. He had only just turned 20, but the defensive midfielder played with such authority that it was already hard to imagine an Argentina side without him.

And he seemed to have gotten his international career off to a winning start. He gave an outstanding performance in the final against Brazil, marking rival playmaker Alex out of the game, and provided his team a platform for a deserved victory.

But with the last...

Mexico's wins over Paraguay, Ecuador prove the need for tougher opponents

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's victories in a pair of friendlies against Ecuador and Paraguay aren't anything to be ashamed of, but the two wins, both 1-0, aren't anything to gloat about, either.

In fact, it's time for El Tri to take a hard look at what needs to be improved on the squad. One of those elements could well be the quality of competition.

After all, how excited can Mexico be to defeat two teams ranked lower than El Tri's 21 in FIFA's list? Ecuador is ranked 29, while lowly Paraguay sits at 80.

Joaquin Valdes might be the man behind Luis Enrique, Barca resurgence

The ESPN FC panel discuss an incredible weekend in the world of football with Manchester United's win and Barcelona's El Clasico victory highlighting the action.

We've just hit the year anniversary of the last game Victor Valdes ever played for FC Barcelona. A little sadly, from my perspective, it was something barely noted in the local media; he was certainly the most successful keeper in the club's history and, I'd say, their greatest, too.

Leaping up to catch the ball and coming down, almost imperceptibly in pain at first and then lying down on the ground, motionless, the agony in his knee ligaments was quickly overtaken by an evident knowledge right...
