Zaza and Immobile impress

 By Chris Wright

Mario Balotelli nutmegged by freestyle superstar Soufiane Touzani

Professional freestyler Soufiane Touzani turned up at Milan's training complex earlier in the week with one goal: to nutmeg Mario Balotelli.

As such, the pair agreed to engage in one-on-one combat out on the all-weather court, with each player attempting to be the first to stick the ball through the legs of the other to claim victory.

Balotelli adopted cagey tactics from the start, keeping his feet together in a desperate attempt to stop Touzani finding room to strike.

However, the defensive action...

Belgium (SPI odds to win group: 50.8 percent)

Long has it been prophesied that Belgium would rule the world of football. Now, according to FIFA's rankings, they really do. But if this golden generation is to do more than just offer promise and potential, they need to step up and win a...

Wolfsburg's Daniel Caligiuri wants to impress Germany and Italy

Daniel Caligiuri wants to play at Euro 2016, but it doesn't matter who for. The Wolfsburg midfielder is German, having been born in the Black Forest and spent all his life in Germany, but his father is Italian and thus he is eligible for the Azzurri as well.

"I will choose whoever comes first. I would be glad to play for both counties," the 27-year-old recently said.

Italy had stolen a march on their rivals in May as Antonio Conte called Caligiuri up ahead of the crunch qualifying fixture against...

Fire Klinsmann? Klopp to win Prem? Mourinho's future, Wales in Euro '16

Wales found joyous defeat in Zenica to bury more than half a century of qualification hurt.

Football always inspires debate, and this weekend was no exception. Here are five burning questions on the ESPN FC radar.

Vote and comment below or on Twitter using the hashtag #FCtalkingpoints.

Jurgen Klinsmann and the United States suffered a 3-2 extra time loss to rival Mexico in the CONCACAF Cup, ending the Yanks' hopes of playing in the 2017 Confederations Cup. Paired with the Stars and Stripes' disappointing showing in the Gold Cup this summer, is it time to move on from Klinsmann?

Should Jurgen Klinsmann get fired as U.S. manager?


Italy qualify for Euro 2016 but are they improving under Antonio Conte?

"We're there," announced the front page of La Gazzetta dello Sport. Italy stamped their tickets for next summer's Euro 2016 with a 3-1 win over Azerbaijan on the banks of the Caspian Sea in Baku on Saturday evening.

Should they avoid defeat to Norway in Rome on Tuesday, head coach Antonio Conte and his players will qualify as winners of Group H. A win would likely affect a bounce in their current FIFA ranking of 17th and improve their chances of being seeded for the tournament.

Of course, as...

With Italy's national team struggling, Pelle might be Azzurri's savior

Graziano Pelle scored a late winner to give Italy three crucial points in a 1-0 victory over Malta in Euro 2016 qualifying Group H.

Graziano Pelle is quite the forgetful man. Italy's Euro 2016 qualifier against Malta on Thursday had barely finished when a reporter from national broadcaster Rai thrust a microphone in the striker's face and asked him which part of his body he had used to score the Azzurri's only goal, which won the game. "I don't remember," replied Pelle. "I'd have to watch a replay first."

Those of us who had already seen the TV footage knew that Pelle had diverted Antonio Candreva's cross into the net with an...
