Behind El Tri's win over USMNT

U.S. vs. Mexico

Five things to watch for vs. Panama


Jurgen Klinsmann turns to youth as a new U.S. era begins

ESPN FC's Taylor Twellman and Ian Darke look ahead to how the United States can rebound from their loss to Mexico in their friendly clash against Costa Rica on Tuesday.

HARRISON, N.J. -- It would be easy to dismiss Tuesday's friendly between the United States and Costa Rica (6:55 p.m. ET, ESPN/WatchESPN) at Red Bull Arena as meaningless.

After all, the match comes just three days after the U.S.' 3-2 loss to Mexico in the CONCACAF Cup, which was followed by coach Jurgen Klinsmann sending back to their clubs nine veterans who were on his roster for that match.

Those players included captain Michael Bradley, as well as DaMarcus Beasley, Matt Besler, Kyle Beckerman,...

United States and Mexico clash captures imagination among fans

The ESPN FC crew debate whether Jurgen Klinsmann should be fired as U.S. coach.

PASADENA, Calif. -- Marco Medina hadn't put head to pillow for very many hours in the nights preceding the clash between the United States and Mexico last Saturday in the Rose Bowl.

The 21-year-old El Tri fan had made the journey from his native Phoenix, Ariz. on Friday along with a group of around 25 friends. He'd been counting down the days ahead of the game.

After witnessing El Tri's epic 3-2 extra time victory over the U.S. in a CONCACAF Cup final that will go down in history, he'd do it all...

Thai duo Chanathip and Teerasil in a class of their own against Vietnam

Chanathip Songkrasin returned from injury to inspire Thailand to a 3-0 win over Vietnam.

Thailand dismissed the challenge of Vietnam in an AFC World Cup qualifier, with a 3-0 at the home of their Southeast Asian neighbours in Hanoi.

Thai head coach Kiatisuk Senamuang saw his side move six points clear of their rivals in Group F. They are now top by five points from Iraq, who have a game in hand.

It was a surprisingly easy victory for the ASEAN champions, having seen the Golden Stars almost defeat group favourites Iraq on Thursday. But 3-0 was no more than the visitors deserved as they...

Anthony Martial and David De Gea equipped to get United back on track

Yohan Cabaye says Anthony Martial can cope with the pressure that comes with his big price tag.

The mood at Manchester United may be sober given their recent 3-0 evisceration at the hands of Arsenal in the Premier League, but they should be confident they can emerge from that.

If they need inspiration, they should remind themselves that they previously won a title in the same season, 1996-97, when they were defeated 5-0 by Newcastle United and 6-3 by Southampton.

Despite the chastening defeat to the Arsene Wenger's men before the international break, United are still reasonably placed to...

Forest 'the greatest story in the history of team sport' - Jonny Owen

Brian Clough and his assistant Peter Taylor built something special at Forest.

These days Nottingham Forest are a fairly unremarkable club, bobbing around in the Championship where they have been -- bar a three-year spell in League One -- since 1999, occasionally threatening promotion but not quite managing it.

However, Forest have a higher profile than most other clubs at their level because of their glorious past. Brian Clough's arrival at the club in 1975 saw Forest go from the bottom half of the second tier of English football to winning the First Division title, then...

Yarmolenko, Koke and Isco not the answer as Chelsea need youth

The ESPN FC crew look at whether Chelsea can turn their season around.

With the fallout from Chelsea's poor start to the season showing little sign of settling, the current international break has seen the London club linked with January transfer moves for several high-profile players.

Porto defensive midfielder Ruben Neves caught the eye in the Blues' recent Champions League defeat at the Estadio do Dragao, and the 18-year-old would cost around £29 million.

Atletico Madrid attacking midfielder Koke, 23, has already established himself in the Spain international...
