Netherlands among big teams making a mess of Euro 2016 qualification

Turkey secured a vital three points as two first half goals paved the way in a 3-0 win over the Netherlands moving them into third in Group A.
The ESPN FC panel discuss Netherland's poor run in European Championship qualifying after their 3-0 defeat against Turkey.

The last time the European Championships were held in France was 1984, which coincidentally was also the last time the Netherlands failed to qualify. Back then, only eight teams made it through to the finals, and only the winners of each qualification group were deemed good enough, so it was a pretty tough selection process.

On that occasion the Dutch were battling Spain for the only place in their group, and the two sides went into their respective last games, both against Malta, level on points....

Portugal rely too much on Cristiano Ronaldo, Ireland's hopes are fading

Hallur Hansson's first half strike paved the way for the Faroe Islands in their historic 2-1 win over Greece.

It's heading toward crunch time in the 2016 European Championship qualifiers. ESPN FC's Nick Miller takes a look at some of the biggest talking points from this week's games.

Portugal jump on Ronaldo's back ... again

We have seen this season for Real Madrid that Cristiano Ronaldo, as he continues his relentless pursuit of cartoon goal-scoring numbers, is rarely happier than when he's doing something on his own. Ronaldo looks positively irked when his teammates score, with the notion of it being...

Greek football, both domestic and the national team, is in a state of disarray

Greek football is in a significant sporting and cultural slump after the recent highs of Olympiakos.

Almost 12 months ago, Olympiakos defeated Manchester United 2-0 in the Champions League round of 16 first leg, setting up the possibility of them making the quarterfinals for only the second time in their history, while also on course to win a fourth consecutive Super League title. Fast forward three weeks and they lost 3-0 to David Moyes' side, exiting the competition.

Despite going on to win the league in 2013-14, this season has been complicated. More than that, 2014-15 has been a difficult...

Asamoah Gyan hands Ghana last-gasp victory

MONGOMO, Equatorial Guinea -- Three thoughts on Ghana's 1-0 win vs. Algeria in Group C of the African Cup of Nations.

1. Gyan returns to save Grant

Asamoah Gyan, who missed Ghana's opening game vs. Senegal having contracted malaria, was the Black Stars' hero with an injury-time winner that secured Avram Grant's team their first points of the tournament, and very much saved the Israeli some blushes.

Ghana had seemed content with a 0-0 draw from the start, before Gyan's late, late strike -- a...

Fatigue played a role in round of 16

If the group stage was about shocks, the round of 16 was what we expected.

For the first time since the switch to a 32-team tournament in 1998, the World Cup's round of 16 games were won by the eight group winners, with the eight runners-up eliminated.

How predictable, you might think. We might as well scrap the round of 16 and put the group winners straight through to the quarterfinals. Although, of course, the actual matches weren't remotely predictable.

Two were decided on penalties, three more...

Assessment: History made, respect earned

Greece were left to rue their missed chances against Costa Rica on Sunday.
Greece players look dejected after their round of 16 exit to Costa Rica on penalties but their tournament was not without its plus points.

Greece have bowed out of the World Cup at the Last 16 and ESPNFC blogger Chris Paraskevas gives his verdict on the brighter points of the campaign as well as what went wrong.

One sentence, World Cup recap

Greece made history, earned plenty of respect and have laid the foundation for this team to build towards the next European Championships and World Cup.
