Julen Lopetegui's Porto underline doubts over tiki-taka's future

Sporting's victory over Porto in the cup has raised concerns over the team's approach.

A first defeat of the season in October can hardly be described as a disaster, but it has hit home -- and hit home hard. Porto's elimination from the Taca de Portugal at the Estadio do Dragao to rivals Sporting on Saturday meant more than being put in their place by a fellow member of os tres grandes (the nation's perpetual big three). For some, it increased the doubts over Spanish boss Julen Lopetegui that have been gradually germinating in recent weeks.

Even victory over the coach's countrymen,...

Is this Sunderland fan the unluckiest football supporter ever?

The Southampton scoreboard shows a barely believable 8-0 result between Saints and Sunderland.

If you think you've had it rough as a football fan, spare a thought for this lifelong Sunderland supporter.

Cass Farrar went to St Mary's to watch his side lose 8-0 against Southampton last Saturday and was also there on BOTH of the other times when they lost by such a scoreline.  Farrar, 69, has been a Sunderland supporter since his childhood and has travelled across the land to watch his beloved club play.

As such, he can now "boast" he has seen them succumb to a whopping 8-0 drubbing no...

Bayern Munich aim to impress pope with mystery gift

Bayern will not settle for merely offering the pope a replica shirt.

Bayern Munich have been granted an audience with the pope following Tuesday night's Champions League match at Roma, and the German champions are planning to charm His Holiness with a mystery gift.

"FC Bayern is known to have good connections with the church, which has fortunately led to us being offered a private audience, which we gladly accepted," Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told reporters on Monday.

"It's very unusual for a club to be offered a private audience. We'll definitely take a replica...

Germany struggle to rival youth of record-breaker Martin Odegaard

Fifteen-year-old Martin Odegaard became the youngest player to debut in a European competition when he came on as a substitute when his Norwegian side took on Bulgaria.

This past week, Norway's teenage phenomenon Martin Odegaard made history -- not for the first time -- when he became the youngest player to see action in a European Championship qualifier. The youngster was 65 days shy of his 16th birthday when he was brought into the game against Bulgaria.

As much as Germany is currently heralded for its youth setup, the aforementioned record is one we can't even come close to. In fact, among the 10 youngest footballers to play for Germany, only two have made their...

CSKA Moscow's Roman Eremenko is an unusually gifted talent

Manchester City will travel to Moscow for Matchday three in hopes of jump-starting their Champions League season.

He is a Russian with a terribly mispronounced Ukrainian name who represents Finland and speaks Swedish with his brother. Roman Eremenko -- pronounced "Yeryomenko" -- certainly has an unusual life story, and he is also an unusual talent. CSKA Moscow have been transformed since he joined two months ago from Rubin Kazan, and his skills will pose a significant threat to Manchester City when the Army Men host the Premier League champions on Tuesday.

CSKA won the last two Russian titles, scoring just...

Club America, Toluca and Monterrey still atop Liga MX Power Rankings

Oribe Peralta scored for Club America for the first time in more than two months.

Club America had time to stew over the 4-0 loss to Mexico City rival Cruz Azul during the international break. The return to Liga MX action brought an authoritative display and a 2-0 home victory against Monterrey, both of which consolidated America as the early favorite for the Apertura 2014 crown.

Antonio Mohamed perhaps hasn't had the credit he has deserved for gradually shaping Miguel "Piojo" Herrera's already-successful team into his image and, most importantly, keeping everyone onside through...
