Messi and Ronaldo: The view from home

Argentina vs. Portugal

Jose Mourinho's next job: Man United, Real Madrid, PSG, Roma, Portugal?

With sources claiming Man United are interested in Jose Mourinho, ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop says he comes with too much baggage.

Pep Guardiola may be the most sought-after coach in world football but Jose Mourinho isn't far behind him. After leaving Chelsea last week, Mourinho has been linked with a host of top jobs. Here, we look at who is the best fit for him.

Manchester United

Louis van Gaal's tenure at Old Trafford is less than secure, with sources telling ESPN FC that Mourinho has been in contact with United over a possible vacancy in the near future. And if some reports are to be believed then Van Gaal has just a...

Euro 2016, Group F: Ronaldo's Portugal and Austria favourites

ESPN FC's Craig Burley feels Austria may pose a threat to Portugal in Group F.
The Exploding Heads debate whether Zlatan or Ronaldo will make a bigger impact at Euro 2016.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Dan Thomas give their reactions to the Euro 2016 draw.

The draw has been made for the group stage of the 2016 UEFA European Championship

Group A | Group B | Group C | Group D | Group E | Group F

Predicted finish:

1. Portugal 2. Austria 3. Iceland 4. Hungary

Portugal (SPI odds to win group: 46.7 percent)

Portugal are arguably the weakest of the top seeds, but they'll be reasonably pleased with this group. They are desperate to make amends for a stunningly inept World Cup display in Brazil. Coach Paulo Bento was allowed to stay on that summer,...

Cristiano Ronaldo film 'Ronaldo' fails to paint player in everyman light

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti speaks to the rumours that Cristiano Ronaldo may be headed to Paris Saint-Germain in 2016.

It must be a strange life being Cristiano Ronaldo. There's a section in the new film about the Portuguese forward, simply called "Ronaldo," in which a couple try to stop the taxi he's in and ask him to sign a football. As it's on a busy road and stopping would present a few problems, Ronaldo quite reasonably declines, and suddenly the pleading from the fans turns into abuse. "This is why you won't be as good as Messi," shouts the man.

Still, we all knew anyway that being the most famous footballer...

Portugal pain against France replaced by determination to overcome Albania

Cristiano Ronaldo struggled up front without support. Are Portugal in need of a youth injection?

Portugal's 10th consecutive defeat to France -- a run of unpleasantness that now dates back to the mid 1970s -- was not the ideal preparation for what has now become a crucial Euro 2016 qualifier against Albania in Elbasan on Monday.

With that match in mind, it was expected that new coach Fernando Santos might experiment in the 1-0 friendly defeat against the French on Friday, with some of Portugal's old guard beginning to fade and an exciting new generation emerging to stake its claim for a place...

Cristiano Ronaldo maintains lead over Lionel Messi in English baby names

Lionel Messi may lead Cristiano Ronaldo in Ballon d'Or honours, but the Real Madrid star is firmly ahead of his rival in one category.

In England and Wales, more babies are consistently named "Ronaldo" than "Messi," according to the Office for National Statistics.

Last year saw 11 babies named Ronaldo while only four were named for Barcelona's little magician.

Ronaldo's numbers peaked at 21 babies in 2007 and 2008, but declined sharply after he left Manchester United for Real Madrid in 2009.


Portugal's Beach Soccer World Cup triumph shines light on emerging sport

Portugal's victory was their second World Cup triumph in beach soccer history, and one earned on home sands.

"If you told me three years ago that Portugal would be Beach Soccer World Champions in 2015, I'd have said you're taking the mickey."

That was the first reaction of coach Mario Narciso yesterday, who had just seen the host nation beat Tahiti 5-3 to lift the trophy for the second time in the history of the sport.

For Portugal it was the perfect end to a thrilling tournament, made all the sweeter owing to the shock failure to qualify for the previous World Cup, in 2013. It also explained Narciso's...
