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.

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,...

Wayne Rooney captain debate is silly, Kimmich ace for Germany, Spain OK

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says Wayne Rooney's current form and style of play slow down the youngsters in the England squad.

One of the side effects of living in London and caring about football is that you're never far away from the Wayne Rooney debate. That applies to both versions: the Manchester United one and the England one, which has the delightful coda of also being a captaincy debate.

With this being an international break, the focus was firmly on the latter. Some papers called for him being stripped of the captaincy in favor of John Stones. Others revealed that he was going to be dropped for Tuesday's clash...

The figures show how badly both have been missed. Argentina have won all three games with Messi on the field. In the other six, they have accumulated just one win, four draws and one defeat. With Neymar, Brazil's record is four wins and...
