Real Madrid star Pepe once again distributes food to Madrid's deprived

He may employ questionable judgement on occasion during matches, but Real Madrid's combative defender Pepe has once again dug into his own pocket to provide free food packages to some of Madrid's most disadvantaged residents.

Ronaldo continues to break boundaries and is somehow getting even better

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe discusses the Ballon d'Or short list and believes there isn't any doubt that Cristiano Ronaldo is the clear favourite.

When most players approach the age of 30, they start to slow down. Legs get heavier, inspiration is more difficult to find, and their overall contribution tends to come in sporadic bursts rather than consistently.

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.
