Almaguer and Te Kloese have big expectations for Mexico's U20 team

Ahead of the 2015 World Cup,  Sergio Almaguer hopes that the Mexico U20 team will progress further than its round-of-16 finish in the 2013 edition.

Whenever Mexico enters an international youth competition these days, there is a certain expectation and excitement. And the under-20s World Cup in New Zealand is no exception.

El Tri debuts in the tournament Saturday (9 p.m. ET) against Mali in Dunedin. Results in the buildup have been mixed; a 2-2 tie with Australia in the last preparation game was preceded by a 3-1 loss to Colombia. However, there is a feeling that players like Pachuca's Erick Gutierrez, club teammate Hirving Lozano, Morelia's...

CONCACAF provisionally bans indicted president Jeffrey Webb

FBI Director James Comey has said that their initial arrests of FIFA officials in relation to corruption and bribery are just the beginning of the investigation.

CONCACAF has provisionally banned president Jeffrey Webb one day after his U.S. indictment on corruption charges, the organizing body announced on Thursday.

Webb led the confederation that oversaw football in North and Central America and the Caribbean for FIFA and was one of many officials arrested in Switzerland on Wednesday as the U.S. pursues charges tied to bribery over tournaments under his watch.

CONCACAF promoted senior vice president Alfredo Hawit of Honduras to replace Webb.

Raul Jimenez, Atletico Madrid: C+

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has only had positive things to say about Raul Jimenez throughout the year. Despite this, it was difficult for Jimenez to surpass the massive...

What's next for Mexico's European-based players?

Javier Hernandez is unlikely to be playing for Real Madrid or his parent club Man United come the 2015-16 season.

The European leagues are wrapping up (or have already wrapped up) for the season and the small matter of the Champions League final is still to be decided, but for Mexicans -- with the exception of Rafa Marquez in Italy -- participation in Europe is already over, with a mixed bag of performances over the 2014-15 season.

While attention for El Tri's Europe-based players -- almost all of who will be involved for the national team this summer -- now switches to the Copa America and/or Gold Cup, a number...

FIFA defers vote on continent rotation for World Cup bids

As Russia will host the 2018 World Cup, a new FIFA rule could exclude Europe from 2026 bidding.

ZURICH -- FIFA has deferred a decision on potentially limiting which continents can bid to host the 2026 World Cup.

FIFA's executive committee met on Monday and had the option of blocking bids from confederations which hosted one of the two previous tournaments.

The panel meets again on Saturday.

As Russia will host the 2018 World Cup, the rule could exclude Europe from 2026 bidding. The United States, Canada and Mexico are likely candidates.

FIFA says the executive committee decided that the 2026...
