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.

Nigeria, Stoke City forward Victor Moses ruled out until 2015

Victor Moses was one of many Stoke players who enjoyed a solid performance against West Ham.

Nigeria forward Victor Moses is unlikely to play again this year after hurting his thigh while playing for Stoke City in the Premier League.

Moses, who is on loan at the Britannia Stadium from Chelsea, is facing "at least six weeks on the sidelines" after picking up the injury in the 2-1 loss to Burnley on Saturday, according to the club's official website.

Nigeria's long descent into ignominy culminates with another ANC flameout

The ESPN FC crew discuss the last of the teams to qualify for the African Nations Cup tournament which will be hosted by Equatorial Guinea in January.

For the second time in three tournaments, Nigeria's Super Eagles have failed to qualify for the African Nation's Cup after drawing 2-2 with South Africa in a must-win final game of qualification. This failure is not a coincidence; it is not even bad luck. It is a gradual descent into ignominy that has been at least two decades in the making.

Since winning the African Nations Cup title in 1994 and reaching the World Cup Round of 16 later that year, as well as claiming Olympic gold in Atlanta two years...
