The FC crew discuss the differing impacts of England's victory at the U-20 World Cup and Venezuela's run to the final.
The guys respond to your tweets about England's hopes at the World Cup, Kylian Mbappe and Mamadou Sakho.
England have won their first major trophy since 1966, after Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Venezuela.
Germany head coach Joachim Low speaks on the importance of bringing in young players to the squad after the Cup win in 2014.
Italy manager Gian Piero Ventura discussed his side's upcoming match against Spain in World Cup qualifying.

England's victory in the Under-20 World Cup final on Sunday was their first competitive triumph since 1966, and brings hope that the national team finally has a group of young stars that can replicate that success at senior level.

There is a long way to go before England gains parity with Europe's other major football nations in terms of trophies won -- at any level. France, Germany, Italy and Spain have all shown at varying times how success at youth level can be transferred into European Championship...

European giants Spain, Germany good bets in midweek friendlies

On home soil, Spain are a good bet to take down Colombia in midweek.

The summer internationals continue this week with most of the major European players involved in friendly action ahead of the next round of World Cup qualifying matches. 

On Wednesday, Spain play host to Colombia in a game that could feature a few goals. To be fair, there is not much history between the teams, with a friendly in 1981 ending 1-1 and their last encounter in 2011 finishing 1-0 to Spain, who were arguably the best side in the world at the time. That may no longer be the case,...

Cesc Fabregas at 30: His impact at Arsenal, Barcelona and Chelsea

Get a behind-the-scenes look at Chelsea, as Carabao hosted an alternative Press Conference with Antonio Conte and Cesc Fabregas.

It seems as though he has been around forever, but Cesc Fabregas turned 30 years old on Thursday.

The midfielder has already enjoyed a career that most other players could only dream of having, and he still potentially has a few years left at the top.

Fabregas has represented Spain at senior level 110 times and won three major titles during his national team's most glorious era. He scored the winning penalties in shootouts at two separate European Championships -- helping Spain to glory in 2008...

Vitolo's boundless energy something to behold for Sevilla, Spain

Vitolo and Diego Costa have become a potent 1-2 scoring punch for Spain in World Cup qualifying.

As Sevilla are preparing to visit Camp Nou on Wednesday evening, Vitolo doesn't hide his aspirations to call the legendary stadium his home in the near future. Responding to recent reports regarding the Catalans' interest in his services, the star remarked: "Barcelona are one of the best teams in the world, and any player would like to play for them."

It is easy to see why Barca are keen to make Vitolo one of their key targets come summer, because in the last year he has proved his abilities beyond...
