Five things to watch for the U.S. at the 2015 Gold Cup

The ESPN FC panel preview this summer's edition of the Gold Cup, with Mexico and the United States being hailed as the favourites.

FRISCO, Texas -- The U.S. kicks off its CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign here on Tuesday night against Honduras, with what coach Jurgen Klinsmann and his players hope will be the first of six matches over the next three weeks, culminating with the July 26 finale in Philadelphia. Only a championship will do for the hosts. But while Klinsmann's team enters as the clear favorite, defending its regional title and automatically qualifying for the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia isn't a foregone conclusion....

Idle Sporting KC remains top as Sounders climb up Power Rankings

Relive the top moments from week 18 in Major League Soccer including Kaka's red, Robbie Keane's hat trick and more.

The first week of July was the first week of the MLS schedule being seriously impacted by Gold Cup absences. Combined with a theme of defensive gaffs, those missing names changes some things in the Power Rankings.

1. Sporting Kansas City (no change)

Sporting sat this week out ahead of a trip to Vancouver next weekend.

2. Seattle Sounders (+1)

All hail Tyrone Mears. After 88 minutes of drab soccer, the Sounders full-back found himself in the right place at the right time. Without Clint Dempsey...

Andrea Pirlo's NYCFC arrival brings class, but also questions for club

Andrea Pirlo joins NYCFC after spending almost 20 years in Italy's Serie A and making 115 caps for the Italy national team.

Say what you want about New York City FC, but they aren't afraid to splash the cash.

The MLS expansion club with seemingly bottomless pockets announced Monday that it has added Italian maestro Andrea Pirlo to a roster that already includes fellow World Cup winner David Villa, U.S. national team regular Mix Diskerud and English icon Frank Lampard (who, like Pirlo, will debut this month). It means that just four months into its debut season, NYCFC likely boasts the most expensive squad in the...

Alexis Sanchez threatened by burnout after overexertion for Arsenal & Chile

Chile triumphed over Argentina in the Copa America final as Alexis Sanchez put home the decisive penalty in the shootout.

After scoring the penalty that won the Copa America for Chile, Alexis Sanchez dashed away to celebrate, as you would in such a moment of joy.

He had secured Chile's first Copa win in their 99-year history and added to his healthy collection of medals which include a La Liga title with Barcelona and the FA Cup with Arsenal, as well as a UEFA Super Cup medal won during his time in Catalonia.

There's a decent chance more could come for him at club level this season, too. The signing of Petr Cech might...

Chelsea's wasted youth highlighted by transfer rumours surrounding club

ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik and Alexis Nunes discuss what moves, if any, do Chelsea and Jose Mourinho need to make in this summer's transfer market.

Given their status as Premier League champions, it is no real surprise that Chelsea are continually being linked with the game's top players. The high-profile departure of Petr Cech to Arsenal means Blues boss Jose Mourinho needs a proven stopper to support first-choice keeper Thibaut Courtois.

Twenty-one-year-old academy product Jamal Blackman concluded last season as third choice behind Cech and Courtois, but given the current speculation about a move for Stoke City's Asmir Begovic, and prior...

Copa America brought Chile success, Argentina frustration and much more

Chile held their nerve to win a penalty shootout vs. Argentina and claim their first Copa America title.
Chile held their nerve to win a penalty shootout vs. Argentina and claim their first Copa America title.

SANTIAGO, Chile -- It unfolded the way many previous Copa America tournaments have unfolded. It had the tension, the passion and the familiarity, as well as the sense that you were witnessing another battle in a never-ending conflict and that you will never get closure.

When a competition is this old -- 99 years and counting -- and so drenched in history, it inevitably becomes self-referential. The FA Cup in England does the same and you can't blame either.

In a football landscape dominated by big...
