Mexico interim boss Ricardo Ferretti delighted after CONCACAF Cup win

PASADENA, Calif. -- It is mission accomplished for Mexico interim head coach Ricardo "Tuca" Ferretti.

The Tigres UANL manager was invited to take over the national team for four games back in August, with the central focus Saturday's CONCACAF Cup against the United States. Now with the 3-2 extra-time victory in the bag, Ferretti only has Tuesday's match against Panama in Toluca, before he swans off back to Tigres.

"I feel good for having accomplished what [Mexican federation president] Decio [De...

Confederations Cup 'somewhat useless' - Bruce Arena

After doing enough to limit Seattle's potent attack, Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena must now try to keep New England's creative playmakers in check.
Bruce Arena doesn't see much value in the Confederations Cup.

Former U.S. national team head coach Bruce Arena has called the Confederations Cup "somewhat useless" ahead of the United States' CONCACAF playoff match against Mexico on Saturday in Pasadena.

The winner of Saturday's game will travel to Russia to take part in next summer's Confederations Cup, which is regarded as a dress rehearsal for the 2018 World Cup host nation.

While he believes the logistics aspect of the tournament has importance, Arena says the event, as a competition, doesn't have much...

Kristian Nicht hopes his experience helps Montreal Impact in CCL Final

MONTREAL -- Given the uproar over the Montreal Impact's pursuit of an emergency goalkeeper before the biggest match in club history, things could have turned out worse.

After their efforts to acquire Chicago Fire keeper Sean Johnson on a short-term loan were (rightly) blocked by MLS in the midst of social media outcry, the Impact could've been forced to use a career minor leaguer or a 20-year-old with no first-team experience in net against Club America in Wednesday's CONCACAF Champions League final.


Club America must assert itself in CCL final vs. Montreal Impact

Oribe Peralta's relentlessness could be an asset for Club America when it plays at Montreal's Olympic Stadium on Wednesday.

Now that Club America managed to avoid embarrassment in the Superclasico versus Chivas with a 1-1 draw, the team must now deal with the CONCACAF Champions League final against the Montreal Impact.

There's a lot of pride at stake here for the country of Mexico, which has seen a Mexican club crowned champion 30 times in all. Liga MX has never lost the championship title to an MLS club (or any other club from CONCACAF) since the current format of CCL began in 2008. Individually, Club America also has...

CONCACAF CL roundup: Leon woes, Pachuca moves on

Club Leon's struggles continued in the Champions League where it failed to advance to the next stage.

Leon's exit from the first round of the CONCACAF Champions League feels very symbolic for the current state of the team. The Liga MX squad was able to secure a win last weekend against Veracruz, but the victory is just one of three so far this season.

The team is a mere shadow of what it once was during the Clausura and failed to gain a much-needed three points against Herediano this Wednesday in the Champions League. Los Esmeraldas have floundered since the departure of star defender Rafael Marquez...
