Brazil may have to face Lionel Messi-led Argentina without Casemiro

Brazil and Uruguay top the CONMEBOL standings. What did they do to get there?

And so the build-up is on toward the big one: Brazil against Argentina next month in World Cup qualification.

On Friday, Brazil coach Tite named his 24-man squad. There was barely a surprise. Why should there be? Everything he has done so far in his brief reign has worked out just fine. Four consecutive wins have carried the team from sixth, outside the qualification slots, to the top of the table.

Sergio Aguero has forged a historic career -- why isn't he more celebrated?

Sergio Aguero may be arguably the best striker in the Prem, but why doesn't he receive the proper attention he deserves?
Even with two more goals to his name, Pep Guardiola thinks he can get more out of Sergio Aguero.

Sergio Aguero, it seems, isn't particularly appreciated in his home country of Argentina. When the striker missed a crucial penalty against Paraguay this week in an eventual 1-0 loss, some commentators took it particularly badly.

"Enough, enough, enough, enough!" shouted the commentator on Argentina's Radio Mitre. "Enough, Aguero, leave! Just leave, Aguero, for the love of God, leave!"

While South American commentators are known for passionate outbursts, particularly compared to the placid...

Argentina club Liniers ordered to fix crooked field after 30 years

Club Social y Deportivo Liniers, an Argentinian fifth division football team, have played the last 30 years on a crooked field.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Talk about a crooked team: A club in soccer-mad Argentina has been playing nearly 30 years on a crooked field.

Liniers club in the country's fifth-division has called the field home since 1987. Their players have learned to make the best of the field even when one half is shorter than the other and from above it looks more like a trapezoid than a rectangle. But the Argentine Football Association recently gave the club a Dec. 15 deadline to fix the field or risk permanent...

Argentina continue to flounder without Messi, as Gabriel Jesus' Brazil surge

Argentina head coach Edgardo Bauza doesn't believe his side deserved to lose following their shock 1-0 defeat by Paraguay.

South America's World Cup qualifying table is back where it was a week ago, with seven teams chasing four-and-a-half slots (the side finishing fifth will meet the winners of Oceania in a playoff).

Last Thursday's ninth round had opened up a gap between the top five and the rest. But like a concertina, it has now closed back again. Three of the top five (Uruguay, Ecuador and Colombia) drew their games in round number 10. There was one winner, Brazil, who take over at the top, and one loser, Argentina,...
