Brazil defeat Nigeria while Germany rout Fiji at Under-20 World Cup

Juivan's two goals got Brazil off to a flying start at the Under-20 World Cup.

Striker Judivan scored twice as Brazil beat Nigeria 4-2 on Monday in a thrilling start to their FIFA Under-20 World Cup campaign.

Nigeria offering Keshi new contract a symbol of federation's stabilisation

Stephen Keshi's new contract is the first step toward stabilising Nigeria's football programme.

Jay-Jay Okocha has urged African football to think big as it continues to challenge for higher honours in the global game and more efficient structures on the continent.

"The problem is that we still settle for very little," Okocha said. "We celebrate...

Stephen Keshi signs new contract as Nigeria coach

ABUJA, Nigeria -- Stephen Keshi signed a two-year contract to continue as coach of Nigeria on Tuesday, calling it "a new page" after a tumultuous story so far that has seen him guide the country to the African title, resign, return, get fired and then be reinstated.

Brazil edge Chile on late Firmino goal, Lacazette leads France past Denmark

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson breaks down Brazil's narrow 1-nil victory over Chile.

Roberto Firmino came off the bench to score a second-half winner as Brazil beat South American rivals Chile 1-0 in a friendly at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium.

Neymar, Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho and Arturo Vidal were all on display in north London, but the game's biggest names could only show glimpses of their attacking best and it was left to substitute Firmino to find the decisive goal in the 73 minute.

Since last year's humiliating exit at their home World Cup, Brazil have now recorded eight...
