Is it in Club America's best interest to be top seed in the liguilla?

Antonio Mohamed's Club America can clinch the top seed in the Liga MX Liguilla with a win over Atlas, for better or worse.
Antonio Mohamed's Club America can clinch the top seed in the Liga MX Liguilla with a win over Atlas, for better or worse.

It may seem counterintuitive, but there are probably quite a few Club America fans who secretly wouldn't mind if their squad lost against Atlas in the final weekend of Liga MX action, even though their beloved Aguilas currently sit atop the table only two points clear.

Superstition is the lot of any true supporter. They wear certain lucky shirts and do their best to avoid any bad omens for their team. It won't have escaped their notice that in the last 10 years of league action, covering 20 league...

Laos coach Booth: First game key to our Suzuki Cup chances

Laos were impressive as they qualified for the AFF Suzuki Cup last month under Englishman David Booth.

It is a familiar story: leave home for a few weeks to head overseas and before you know it, a decade has passed and you are an expat. In the case of David Booth, caretaker Laos coach for the AFF Suzuki Cup, it is 20 years, 10 countries and counting.

The Englishman went to Ghana for six weeks in 1990, on the recommendation of Bobby Charlton, to save a team from relegation. The former Darlington and Grimsby boss has not worked in his homeland since and admits that he is never likely to. He's got plenty...

Mike Petke hopes to keep pushing the New York Red Bulls forward

Lee Nguyen and Thierry Henry look to continue their good form in the Eastern Conference championship.

Ask the coach of any team being carried along by a swell of momentum, and he'll likely tell you that the last thing they want is for something to come along and disrupt the ride.

As such, it would have surprised no one if New York Red Bulls coach Mike Petke was ruing the timing of last week's international break, which gave his team -- on a 10-4-1 run before upsetting D.C. United Nov. 8 to advance to the MLS Eastern Conference finals -- two full weeks off before Sunday's series opener against the...

Nigeria's long descent into ignominy culminates with another ANC flameout

The ESPN FC crew discuss the last of the teams to qualify for the African Nations Cup tournament which will be hosted by Equatorial Guinea in January.

For the second time in three tournaments, Nigeria's Super Eagles have failed to qualify for the African Nation's Cup after drawing 2-2 with South Africa in a must-win final game of qualification. This failure is not a coincidence; it is not even bad luck. It is a gradual descent into ignominy that has been at least two decades in the making.

Since winning the African Nations Cup title in 1994 and reaching the World Cup Round of 16 later that year, as well as claiming Olympic gold in Atlanta two years...

Boca must put fears to the side after nervy first leg

Fernando Gago was left to rue the save made on his stoppage time header that would have won Boca Juniors' first leg Copa Sudamericana semifinal against rivals River Plate.
Fernando Gago was left to rue the save made on his stoppage time header that would have won Boca Juniors' first leg Copa Sudamericana semifinal against rivals River Plate.

Before Thursday night's Boca Juniors-River Plate Copa Sudamericana first-leg semifinal, a goalless draw was an option looked upon favorably. However, the poor quality of play can't allow Boca to enjoy the result. It would be a different story if River goalkeeper Marcelo Barovero had stood out in the 0-0 draw, but he was far from capturing the limelight -- not exactly because he didn't play well, but simply because he wasn't constantly threatened in River's penalty box.

River draws on fighting spirit to compensate for drop in form

Leonel Vangioni, left, and River Plate fought and clawed their way to a scoreless draw against Andres Chavez and Boca Juniors in Thursday night's Copa Sudamericana first leg semifinal.

BUENOS AIRES -- There comes a time when your legs have no more to give, and you have to use your head. Because when your brain gives orders, your body reluctantly obeys. In sum, you have to adapt to stay alive. It's an equation as obvious as it is inevitable.

Because of the constant string of recent matches, River didn't take the pitch in the first leg of this Copa Sudamericana semifinal Superclásico as heavily favored as they have been in the league. That's why head coach Marcelo Gallardo didn't...
