Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi show national pride amid differing fortunes

The ESPN FC panel dives into the ever-raging debate about Ronaldo vs. Messi, and if this Euro 2016 win gives Ronaldo the edge.

Both their summers ended in tears. Lionel Messi, devastated after losing to Chile in the Copa America Centenario, his third straight loss in an international final; Cristiano Ronaldo, stretchered off the field in the 25th minute of the Euro 2016 final, only to see his agony turn to tears of joy as Portugal defeated France to lift the trophy.

Gerardo Martino's resignation is the latest setback for Argentina FA

The ESPN FC panel breakdown Gerardo Martino's resignation from the Argentina national team and where the blame truly lies.

Four men out. Two South American coaches lost their jobs during the Copa America Centenario: Brazil sacked Dunga, and Paraguay's Ramon Diaz resigned. On Monday, Bolivia decided to part company with Julio Cesar Baldivieso, and in Tuesday's bombshell, Argentina's Gerardo Martino decided he could take no more.

The background to his resignation is the chaos in which the Argentine Football Association is wading. The institution has been caught off guard by the FIFA scandals, which have poured more...

Lionel Messi's apparent retirement caused by Argentina FA in chaos

At around midday on Monday, the offices of the Asociacion de Futbol Argentino (AFA) received an anonymous phone call to inform them that there was a bomb in the building. The identity of the caller is still as yet unknown but such a chaotic scene was entirely in keeping with the situation within the institution over the past few weeks and months, a situation that, until the bomb threat, seemed to reach its most dramatic head with the apparent international resignation of Lionel Messi after Sunday...
