James Wilson scores as England under-21s defeat U.S. under-23s

James Wilson celebrates his goal against the United States under-23 squad on Thursday.

England's latest crop of new recruits for the next generation began their journey with a 1-0 friendly win against the United States' Under-23 side in Preston.

A disastrous European Championship in the summer, when Gareth Southgate's side finished bottom of their group in the Czech Republic, and the start of a new two-year qualification campaign has prompted plenty of changes.

Of the 11 debutants over the course of the evening it was Manchester United's James Wilson who made his mark with a poacher's...

Netherlands lose another qualifier; Gareth Bale lifts Wales to victory

Gylfi Sigurdsson found the back of the net from the penalty spot to give Iceland a 1-0 victory over a floundering Dutch side.

Iceland beat 10-man Netherlands 1-0 on Thursday to take a big step toward qualifying for next year's European Championship, while the Dutch qualifying campaign continued to flounder.

Gylfi Sigurdsson's second-half penalty proved the difference in Eindhoven to hand new Oranje coach Danny Blind a dismal debut.

Sigurdsson put the visitors ahead six minutes into the second half after Gregory van der Wiel had brought down Brikir Bjarnason in the area.

The Dutch had suffered an early setback when in the...

Experience the best moments of Sebastian Giovinco's MLS season debut ahead of the international break.

Toronto FC coach Greg Vanney says the club is "rewriting the history of who we are" as they try to make the MLS playoffs for the first time.

The Candian club has never qualified for the postseason in their eight seasons in the league, but are in good position this year, sitting fourth in the Eastern Conference.

Toronto endured a difficult summer with just 3 wins in 10 games -- and those coming against Orlando City and Philadelphia Union, both among the league's worst teams.

But they rebounded on...

Arturo Vidal back at Bayern Munich training after abrupt Chile exit

Following a trophy-laden few years, Bayern Munich remain thirsty for more success this term as they seek to win Bundesliga, DFB Pokal and UEFA Champions League honours.
The ESPN FC crew discuss Arturo Vidal's move to Bayern Munich and the impact he will have at the Allianz Arena under Pep Guardiola.

Dos Santos brothers' Mexico omission not punishment, says Tuca Ferretti

Mexico interim head coach Ricardo Ferretti started his tenure with the eyebrow raising move of omitting the Dos Santos brothers from his first team selection.

SANDY, Utah -- The omission of brother Giovani and Jonathan dos Santos from the Mexico squad had nothing to do with punishment or retribution, interim coach Ricardo "Tuca" Ferretti said on Thursday.

The Dos Santos brothers sent out tweets in support of former coach Miguel Herrera after he swung at a TV commentator the day after winning the Gold Cup this summer, leading to speculation that the players -- previously regulars for El Tri -- were being punished for their views.

"There is no disciplinary...

Inquiry request into West Ham stadium move rejected by government

West Ham will move into the Olympic Stadium next season.

The Government has rejected a request from a host of supporters' clubs for an inquiry into West Ham's move to the Olympic Stadium.

The Hammers will take on a 99-year deal as anchor tenants starting from next season but the decision to hand West Ham the keys to the stadium has been questioned ever since it was first announced nearly three years ago.

A BBC documentary aired last month pointed out how much West Ham would be saving due to their agreement with the London Legacy Development Corporation...
