Players recall history of U.S. vs. Mexico

U.S. vs. Mexico

Carlo or Klopp: Who is right for Reds?


U.S.-Mexico oral history as told by the players who created it

Former USMNT midfielder Stuart Holden joins Dan Thomas to give his input on the USMNT starting XI he'd like to see take the pitch against Mexico.

The U.S. and Mexico play in the CONCACAF Cup on Oct. 10 at the Rose Bowl in Pasedena, Calif. The winner will qualify for the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia, the warm-up tournament to the 2018 World Cup.

The game is straightforward enough, but we know it's really not that simple. It never is when arch-rivals U.S. and Mexico are concerned. When these two rivals take the field, there is so much more at stake. It's the chance for players to enter their names into a tapestry of epic moments and controversial...

Four key areas of Barcelona's minor 'crisis' that Luis Enrique must address

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno explains where Barcelona's vulnerabilities lie following their 2-1 loss at Sevilla.

It's a useful litmus test as to how things stand at FC Barcelona when you hear Luis Enrique release a huge sigh of welcome at the arrival of the international break.

Many coaches and players yearn for it. At smaller, less-successful clubs, it's a chance for a mini-holiday. Players get to muck around, spend time with their families, meet sponsorship commitments (aka make more money), and there's a regular European exodus for four or five days to the beaches of Doha.

At the largest, most successful...

Toronto FC nearing MLS playoff debut after eight seasons of heartbreak

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes reacts to Jozy Altidore's statements that the past two years have been the worst of his life, after dealing with injuries and a move back to MLS.

In the 80th minute of Orlando City's clash with Montreal on Saturday, Seb Hines spun a looping shot off the outside of his boot that dropped into the Montreal net and kept Orlando's playoff hopes alive for one more week. Technically alive, that is; it's still hard to see a scenario in which Orlando catch Montreal, who are a point ahead with two games in hand.

Yet for anyone prepared to entertain true long shots, the win also presented Orlando with another target: Toronto FC. Five points ahead of...

Jose Mourinho's vote of confidence from Chelsea is a positive sign

ESPN FC's Craig Burley is fed up with Jose Mourinho and believes Chelsea need to follow Liverpool's example in sacking their manager.

In the wake of the damaging 3-1 home defeat to Southampton containing a second-half display destined to remain long in the memory for all the wrong reasons, there has actually been some good news for supporters of Chelsea FC. The confirmation from the club that they retain their faith in manager Jose Mourinho is a very welcome if unexpected step and suggests that the revolving-door policy at Stamford Bridge has, for now at least, been put on hold.

Normally a vote of confidence is seen as the first...

A test of character as Dooley's Azkals take a World Cup trip to Pyongyang

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and John Wilkinson discusses Singapore's upcoming World Cup qualifier against Afghanistan at National Stadium on October 8th.

Fresh from a 5-1 home defeat top-seeded Uzbekistan, the Philippines hope for better results as they embark on a gruelling two game away schedule this week in AFC World Cup qualifying, starting with an intriguing trip to North Korea.

The Azkals face North Korea on Thursday before travelling to Riffa to play Bahrain on Oct. 13.

After starting the World Cup qualifying campaign with two impressive wins, the Azkals were well and truly brought back to earth (Insert link) with the loss to the Uzbeks so...

Premier League title-chasing teams full of obvious flaws

It was another big, big weekend in the English Premier League, Anthony Richardson recaps the best and worst of it.

If the first eight rounds of the 2014-15 Premier League season have told us anything, it's that nobody's perfect. Each of the clubs whose aspirations lie in lifting trophies and qualifying for the Champions League have obvious failings.

Last season, Chelsea raced into an early lead and stayed out in front, beginning with a flourish and then battening down the hatches as the finish drew in sight. This time, Manchester City looked to repeat that in winning their first five but lost the next two, despite...
