Expanded Euro 2016 breathes new life into qualifying

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol believes Scotland can put themselves in great position to qualify for Euro 2016 if they can win away from home.

If the euphoria of the World Cup in Brazil was the shot in the arm that international football needed -- certainly from the perspective of a European-focused audience, who sometimes tends to see it as an irritant to the serious business of the high-end club game -- then the opening rounds of qualifying for Euro 2016 have continued that upward swing.

The prospect of the 2016 European Championship finals containing 24 teams for the first time originally elicited plenty of groans.

A 16-team final tournament...

Wayne Rooney -- misunderstood genius or overrated myth?

Is Wayney Rooney living up to his potential for England? The FC crew debates.

Few players in English history have divided opinions quite so sharply as Wayne Rooney, though I suspect much of that is connected to the tribal love or hatred for his club Manchester United. Whichever side of the fence you're on, nobody should begrudge Rooney the plaudits any player deserves for reaching 100 international caps, which he's set to accomplish when England face Slovenia in European qualifying.

That figure is a triumph of talent, endurance, dedication and longevity in the nearly 12 years...

Cesc Fabregas ruled out of Spain squad for Belarus and Germany

Spain's goal scoring has dropped without Cesc Fabregas in the lineup, and they will have to cope without him the next 2 matches due to a hamstring issue.

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas will miss Spain's forthcoming matches against Belarus and Germany with a hamstring problem, but the Spanish FA has said the injury is improving.

After Fabregas completed the 90 minutes in Chelsea's 2-1 Premier League win at Liverpool on Saturday, Blues boss Jose Mourinho revealed he had a hamstring problem and was unlikely to be able to play for Spain.

Last week, Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque decided against calling Chelsea centre-forward Diego Costa up for the two...
