U.S. youth vs. veterans a welcome problem for Jurgen Klinsmann

U.S. midfielder Darlington Nagbe describes the feeling after scoring his first goal for the USMNT in their 1-0 win over Ecuador.

FRISCO, Texas -- When the U.S. lineup was released about an hour before Wednesday's kickoff of a Copa America tuneup against Ecuador, the American soccer Twittersphere was aghast at the age of Jurgen Klinsmann's starting XI.

By the time the night had ended, though, with a 1-0 victory by the Americans on Darlington Nagbe's 90th-minute strike, social media was awash in praise of the national team's next generation.

Of the seven starters in suburban Dallas, seven will be on the wrong side of...

U.S. can take confidence from Ecuador win, but there's room for improvement

Dunga may have found Brazil's best formation; Ecuador, Uruguay cruise

Brazil put on a stunning display for their fans in Salvador, beating Peru 3-0 in their World Cup qualifier.

Renato Augusto
Renato Augusto's introduction into Brazil's midfield transformed the Selecao's play.

There are two explanations for the surprise top two in South America's World Cup qualifiers.

Firstly, Ecuador, with a 100 percent record, and Uruguay, three points behind, lead the field because of their own merits.

Ecuador have a well consolidated idea of play, breaking at pace with very dangerous wingers. And now, in Gustavo Quinteros, they would seem to have a quality coach who has brought his own refinements, protecting a suspect defence by making his team mark aggressively higher up the pitch.

Five players who shone in South America's World Cup qualifiers

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes breaks down the latest action from CONMEBOL as Argentina remained winless and Brazil cruised past Venezuela.

The journey to Russia 2018 is officially underway in South America, and the results so far have been anything but predictable. Here's a look at five players who stood out in the first two rounds of CONMEBOL's World Cup qualifiers:

Angel Di Maria and Argentina were presumptive favorites in World Cup qualifying, but the plan hasn't gone to script.

When the fixtures were drawn for South America's World Cup qualification campaign, it always looked likely that November's third round would feature an early battle for the leadership. And indeed it will. However, that match won't be in Buenos Aires, where Argentina take on Brazil, as the two giants have gotten off to faltering starts.

Instead, first place will be up for grabs in Quito, where Ecuador host Uruguay. These two nations, along with newly crowned continental champions Chile, have won...
