France fans flock to get new shirt with two World Cup winners' stars

France's new shirt is adorned with two stars, one for each World Cup win.

France fans can now wear their pride in their nation's 2018 World Cup triumph firmly on their chests after a second star was added to the national team's kit -- and there have been big queues to be the one of the first to own it.

Les Bleus lifted the trophy for a second time in their history in Russia just over a month ago, and kit manufacturers Nike wasted no time in commemorating that victory on their official apparel.

"I'll keep it all my life. It's the second star! They made our dreams come...

World Cup ref chief Pierluigi Collina dishes on VAR impact at Russia 2018

Former Premier League referee Peter Walton explains why the use of VAR in Russia exceeded his expectations.
FIFA president Gianni Infantino breaks down VAR's usage at the 2018 World Cup and how pleased he is with its implementation.
Various ESPN FC correspondents and fans weigh in on VAR and its impact at the World Cup in the latest episode of Project Russia.

A month has passed since the end of the World Cup in Russia, hailed by many as one of the best ever. Gab Marcotti caught up with Pierluigi Collina, chairman of FIFA's referees committee and the man in the middle for the 2002 final between Brazil and Germany, to talk about officiating, video assistant referees (VAR) and the future.

When you look back at 2018 and the fact that relative to previous World Cups, it had perhaps the least amount of refereeing controversy, to what do you attribute it? Could...

Man United's Paul Pogba marks France World Cup win with stars in his hair

Paul Pogba had two stars painted into his hair to mark France's second World Cup win
Paul Pogba marked France's World Cup victory in his own inimitable style.

Paul Pogba is set to kick off the new domestic season with a brand new haircut that reflects his truly momentous summer of international football.

After helping propel France to a second World Cup triumph out in Russia, Pogba has gone and had Les Bleus' two stars daubed onto the back of his head.

In somewhat unorthodox fashion, Pogba appears to have produced a movie-style trailer for his new haircut, which he duly shared on Instagram.

"Back home with the two stars," the 25-year-old wrote.

Argentina search begins as Lionel Scaloni and Pablo Aimar keep hotseat warm

Former Argentina international Juan Sebastian Veron discusses how the national side needs to structure itself going forward, following their performance at the 2018 World Cup.

Argentina have kicked the can down the road with their decision to place Under-20 coaches Lionel Scaloni and Pablo Aimar in temporary charge of the senior side. The duo will be in charge for next month's matches in the U.S. against Guatemala and Colombia, and presumably for the international dates in October and November as well.

"We are going to take a semester to find someone to take charge [on a permanent basis]," said Argentine Football Association president Claudio Tapia. "More than anything,...

With Mexico targeting unprecedented success at 2026 World Cup, U21s falter at CAC games

After winning the joint-host bid, Mexico's brass has turned their attention to gearing up for 2026.
Mexico's brass are developing a plan that hopes to put Mexico in position to make some serious noise at the 2026 World Cup.

MEXICO CITY -- If the Mexican Football Federation's plan was to have its national side reaching places it had never been before in the World Cup in eight years' time, those ambitions suffered a huge setback Wednesday: an early elimination at the Central American and Caribbean Games for a generation called upon to write that history.

Mexican Football Federation president Yon de Luisa and his staff presented on Wednesday some of their ideas for the near future, the most noteworthy being the intention...

Osorio's tenure shows it doesn't matter who takes over next for Mexico

With rumours that Juan Carlos Osorio will not continue as Mexico coach, the FC team gauge his chances of becoming the next coach of the USMNT.

Editor's Note: This was originally published for ESPN Mexico. Read the original here.

Mexico didn't reach that elusive fifth game in Russia. It's true. This summer's World Cup also wasn't one in which the side's overseas contingent stood out. In fact, it's possible that it was the weakest output yet for such a group.

Yet evaluating the era of Juan Carlos Osorio -- whose tenure as Mexico coach remains unclear -- is a task that must be undertaken with an objective eye, and though many might think...
