Shaka Hislop and Alexis Nunes break down the list of candidates to start between the sticks for England at the World Cup.

Taylor Twellman calls for changes "from top to bottom" on the way soccer is run from the youth level to professional ranks.
U.S. head coach Bruce Arena calls his team's failure to qualify for the World Cup "a blemish and a disappointment."

Panama scored a hugely controversial goal en route to qualifying for the 2018 World Cup on Tuesday with a 2-1 win over Costa Rica, a result which also helped eliminate the United States.

Together with the U.S.'s defeat to Trinidad and Tobago, Panama needed a victory to move up the CONCACAF table after falling 4-0 to the Americans on Friday, and they got the result with two second half-goals...
