Once they...

Ronaldo and Lionel Messi face off in Portugal's 1-0 win over Argentina

Argentina head coach Tata Martino believes his side did not deserve to lose 1-0 to Portugal after having the majority of the game's chances.

MANCHESTER, England -- Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo faced off at Old Trafford, a friendly in which Raphael Guerreiro gave Portugal the 1-0 win over Argentina at the death. Here are three points from the match. 

1. Messi and Ronaldo draw a rare blank

They are forever together, much as it may irritate both. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, men who have taken their games to a greater height because of competition from the other, players whose trophy...

Argentina vs. Portugal caps lively week for South American teams

Both Argentina and Croatia head coaches found positives with their side's efforts, after Tata Martino's men won 2-1 in a friendly on Wednesday.

There is no doubt about it: The most eye-catching match involving a South American national team on Tuesday is Argentina vs. Portugal, a gift for the headline writers.

There is, of course, the meeting of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo -- but there is so much more. The match takes place at Manchester United's Old Trafford, which means a much-hyped return for Cristiano Ronaldo to the ground where he first became a global superstar, and where, some believe, he will one day return.

- How Argentina...

Three Points: Portugal lose in Fernando Santos' managerial debut

Goals from Karim Benzema and Paul Pogba helped France to a 2-1 win over Portugal.

PARIS -- Three observations from France's 2-1 home win over Portugal.

Long way back for Sakho

If one match defines Didier Deschamps' reign to date, it is still the stirring comeback in last November's World Cup playoff against Ukraine at the Stade de France. It was a night that made Mamadou Sakho, with the Liverpool defender a goal scorer and a talisman for Les Bleus' resurrection.

As well as his considerable physical attributes, it was always this sense of being totemic that elevated Sakho above...

Previewing this week's best Euro 2016 qualifying matches

Spain international Pedro spoke ahead of the country's Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovakia on their opponents, FC Barcelona and his teammate Cesc Fabregas.

Cynics of UEFA's decision to bolster their European Championship finals entry list to 24 teams will be offered more than a little ammunition to back up their theory that the expanded competition has diluted the pre-event qualifying campaign this week.

England's Wembley meeting with San Marino (FIFA ranking 208) at Wembley on Thursday, Holland's clash with Kazakhstan (127) a day later and the Republic of Ireland's meeting with Gibraltar (unranked by FIFA) are some of the fixtures on the horizon that...
