Matchday 14: Messi, Argentina in round of 16

Five Aside

How Ecuador can improve after loss

Reviewing the results of CONMEBOL teams since the World Cup

With his comeback from suspension close, Luis Suarez has come to terms with his actions, which saw him sent home from the World Cup in disgrace.

After the FIFA dates of September and October, how have the South American national teams progressed as they warm up for next year's Copa America followed by the 2018 World Cup qualifiers?

ARGENTINA: Won 4-2 away to Germany, lost 2-0 to Brazil and beat Hong Kong 7-0

New coach Gerardo Martino has built on the work of predecessor Alejandro Sabella but has also made a tweak. The base formation remains 4-3-3 (which Sabella's Argentina abandoned in the World Cup due to injuries), but with a difference.


Five Aside: Capping off Landon Donovan's U.S. career

Landon Donovan ended his career with the United States national team by playing 41 minutes in a 1-1 draw with Ecuador on Friday night. Here's a look at the end of a legendary career and the notes you need to know from the draw:

• This was Landon Donovan's 157th cap with the national team, second only to Cobi Jones (162) in United States men's team history. It was also his 142nd start with the national team, most all time and 18 ahead of Jeff Agoos who is second all time with 124. His 41 minutes...

Three Points: USA vs. Ecuador

We look back at the full highlight of Landon Donovan's send-off game for the United States.

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. -- Just over 35 minutes had elapsed in Friday's friendly between the U.S. and Ecuador, when the chant from the American Outlaws could be heard echoing around Rentschler Field.

"Thank you, Landon! Thank you, Landon!"

It summed up the moment, as well as Donovan's 14-year international career, perfectly. This was a night to give thanks -- and recall all the signature moments Donovan has delivered.

Five minutes later, the U.S. team's all-time leader in goals and assists saw...

Ecuador's "shipyard derby" pits brother against brother

Superman is up and running, flying and scoring goals. Enner Valencia opened his West Ham account with a splendid shot in Monday's 2-2 draw away to Hull City.

Back in his native Ecuador, meanwhile, his old club were missing his power to produce the unexpected. Emelec lost 1-0 to Barcelona in the latest installment of the country's biggest local rivalry, the "shipyard derby"...

River Plate graduates Lamela and Cazares star on the world stage

New Argentina boss Tata Martino hailed Angel di Maria as one of the best players in the world after he inspired a 4-2 friendly victory over World Cup winners Germany.
Erik Lamela has started this season well after a horror of a first year with Tottenham.

Roque Santa Cruz was unable to celebrate his 100th international match with a goal, as Paraguay were held 0-0 by the United Arab Emirates in a friendly played in Austria. Meanwhile, some newcomers have been making their marks as the South American national teams return to action after the World Cup.

In particular, there were promising contributions from a couple attacking midfielders who know each other from the youth ranks of Buenos Aires giants River Plate. On opposite sides of the Atlantic,...

Assessment: Positives to take

Ecuador have bowed out of the World Cup in the group stages, and ESPN FC blogger Nick Dorrington gives his verdict on the brighter points of the campaign as well as what went wrong.

Star Man
