Now after making his first international start for the U.S. in last weekend's 2-0 win over Panama, Ibarra finds his profile increasing at light speed.

"Everything is coming out of nowhere," he told ESPN FC via telephone. "Everything is surprising to me, coming so fast. So far I think I've...

The ESPN FC crew examine the New York Cosmos' interest in Everton's Samuel Eto'o.

Sampdoria are optimistic Samuel Eto'o will join them this month despite New York Cosmos having entered the race for the Everton striker.
