Bayern Munich: Thiago knee surgery a success

Bayern Munich's 7-1 thrashing of Roma in the UEFA Champions League was an accident according to head coach, Pep Guardiola.

Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago had successful knee surgery in Spain, the Bundesliga champions confirmed on Thursday.

The 23-year-old has been out of action for seven months after tearing ligaments in his right knee and he suffered a setback in training last week, with the latest round of surgery set to sideline him for another half a year.

The Spain international preferred to be treated in his home country and he went under the knife on Thursday.

Diego Costa only plays for Spain when fit, says Vicente Del Bosque

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho refused to comment on striker Diego Costa's fitness as he looked ahead to his side's Premier League match against Crystal Palace this weekend.

Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque has said Chelsea striker Diego Costa only plays for La Roja when he is fit and claimed that muscle injuries can sometimes have a "mystical" element.

The condition of Costa's hamstring has been debated in recent months, with Blues manager Jose Mourinho suggesting ahead of the most recent Euro 2016 qualifiers that the striker should rest and recover properly.

Lionel Messi: 10 years, 10 magic moments

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe believes there will be a big celebration for Messi when he celebrates his 10th anniversary at Barcelona this week.

It's hard to believe that Lionel Messi made his full debut for Barcelona 10 years ago today, especially when you look at some of his magical moments in the decade since. Sid Lowe reviews some of the most memorable.

The first goal: Barcelona vs. Albacete, May 2005

Sent on as a substitute, it takes Messi just 17 seconds to score. It is a classy lob, unexpectedly cool for a 17-year-old kid who'd barely played, but it is also offside. Well, it's not, but the linesman says it is. So Messi has to...

Aymeric Laporte may give up on France career if Spain call him up

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe analyses Diego Costa's first goal in a Spain jersey and the pressure he has been under to produce for La Roja.

Athletic Bilbao's young French centre-back Aymeric Laporte has suggested that he might switch allegiance to Spain if he is not soon called up by Les Bleus.

Laporte, 20, is already a regular starter for Athletic, and impressed especially last season as the Basque side sealed Champions League qualification. He has also starred while winning the European Under-19 Championship with France in both 2011 and 2012, and played in this week's unsuccessful European Under-21 Championship playoffs against Sweden.

Isco laments Spain's failure to reach 2015 European U21 Championship

The creative streak found in Isco could be Spain's key in unlocking defences that pack the box.
Isco insists Spain will not change their style of play despite failing to reach the 2015 European Under-21 Championship.

Isco has admitted that missing out on next summer's European Under-21 Championship is a setback for the latest generation of Spanish starlets.

Favourites Spain were beaten 2-1 by Serbia in Tuesday's playoff second leg in Huelva, after the first leg in Belgrade had finished 0-0 last Friday.

This means the Rojita under-21 side, which had gone 35 games unbeaten at this level while winning the last two European Championship titles, will miss out on next summer's finals in the Czech Republic and...
