Copa America

Ecuador stun Argentina, Alexis Sanchez inspires Chile against Brazil

Argentina's World Cup qualifying campaign got off to a poor start with a shock defeat at home to Ecuador.

Opening defeats for Brazil against Chile and for Argentina at home to Ecuador -- welcome to the most competitive World Cup qualification campaign around.

Since its establishment in 1996, the marathon format in South America, with all 10 nations playing each other home and away, has resulted in a massive rise in standards. With regular competitive games and guaranteed income, the less traditional football nations have been able to grow.

Ecuador had their best ever World Cup in 2006, as did Paraguay...

Hulk's stellar form at Zenit makes him a prime candidate to run Brazil's attack

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes discusses how Brazil can benefit with Hulk's fine form so far this season with Zenit.
Hulk has eight goals and 10 assists in 13 games for Zenit this season -- proof of his remarkable turnaround.

You might not have noticed at the time, but last week was very special for Hulk. "How so?" one might wonder, given that the Brazilian didn't score in Zenit's triumphs, 2-1 over Gent in the Champions League and 3-0 over Rostov in Russian Premier League. What made it special is Hulk assisted all five of his team's goals, and he did so while showing a remarkable range of skills.

The Brazilian provided the deftest of touches with a beautiful cross that found the head of Artem Dzyuba, who put Zenit...

Ronaldinho leaves Fluminense in what could be the final act of his career

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes discusses Ronaldinho's contract being terminated by Fluminense, but where will the Brazilian head next?

Well, that didn't last long, did it? Just two months after joining them, Ronaldinho has left his latest club, Fluminense.

The timing did not help. Ronaldinho came to Rio with the club towards the top of the league table but the wheels soon fell off and the three points picked up last Saturday at home to Goias were badly needed in what has suddenly become a battle against relegation.

In a context where little has been going right on the field, Ronaldinho's contribution came under a demanding microscope....

Rogerio's howler vs. Palmeiras leaves one last chance to finish with a trophy

Rogerio Ceni's blunder in injury time on Sunday means that he missed out on getting one last win over local rivals Palmeiras.

Sao Paulo's legendary goalkeeper Rogerio Ceni will not be able to look back with much fondness on Sunday's match with Palmeiras. The 1-1 draw will probably be his last outing vs. his fierce local rivals in the Brazilian league, and it will be remembered for all the wrong reasons.

Two minutes into second half stoppage time Sao Paulo were a goal ahead, a result that would have taken them past Palmeiras in the table and up into fourth position, the last of the qualification slots for next year's Copa...

Leo Messi and Neymar hot on Wayne Rooney's heels to hit half-century mark

The ESPN FC panel answer your tweets on starting with Harry Kane or Wayne Rooney, Prince Ali or Michel Platini as next FIFA President and whether or not Lionel Messi is way ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Wayne Rooney has scored more international goals than all but four South Americans. Leo Messi and Neymar, however, aren't far behind.

To put Wayne Rooney's England goal-scoring record in perspective, only four South American players have hit the back of the net more times for their national teams. Rooney now has 50 for England. He is outscored by a Brazilian triumvirate (Pele -- 77, Ronaldo -- 62, and Romario -- 55) and by Argentina's Gabriel Batistuta (56).

A couple of contemporary South Americans are breathing down Rooney's neck, though. Lionel Messi's late equaliser for Argentina against Mexico on Tuesday night takes him up...

United States must learn their lessons after Brazil capitulation

Neymar scored two goals as Brazil dominated possession against the United States in a 4-1 friendly win at Gillette Stadium.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- As ugly as the national team's 4-1 loss to Brazil on Tuesday was -- and it was a real stinker, make no mistake -- the United States' players tried their best to keep perspective following what was the worst home defeat for the Americans since they last faced the five-time world champions three years ago, when they went down by an identical score.

"We didn't think we were the best team in world when we beat Netherlands and Germany in the friendlies in June, and we don't think...
