Another game and another disappointing result for one of the World Cup favourites. A day after Argentina were held to a 1-1 draw with Iceland and with Mexico's celebrations for beating Germany still hanging in the air, Brazil drew their opening game of the 2018 World Cup with Switzerland.

Brazil looked comfortable after Philippe Coutinho's brilliant first-half...

Italy, Uruguay, Ghana among 10 teams to get very similar away kits from Puma

With the World Cup beginning to crown on the horizon, Puma have released a flurry of new kits for the likes of Uruguay, Ghana and Switzerland.

While rival suppliers Adidas have been widely praised for their retro-infused offerings, Puma have opted to plough a more prosaic furrow.

Indeed, it looks like "very, very white" was the central design brief for all 10 shirts, with Italy, Senegal, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Czech Republic, Austria and Serbia also getting new looks.

According to the accompanying...

How Switzerland can be seeded at the World Cup finals for Russia 2018

Switzerland were one of the shock seeds in the draw for the 2014 World Cup finals -- and they could be seeded for the 2018 event too.

Russia will be seeded as hosts, and joined by the top seven qualifiers based upon the October FIFA World Ranking, which is published after the next round of qualifiers.

Ronaldo and Portugal's glory, Iceland and Wales heroes while England flop

ESPN FC had bloggers covering each country at Euro 2016. It was glory for Portugal, who overcame Cristiano Ronaldo's injury to stun France in the final.

Elsewhere, England endured a miserable tournament, limping through the group stages before an abject 2-1 defeat to Iceland in the round of 16 cost Roy Hodgson his job.

Iceland were one of the stories of the competition, though, reaching the quarterfinals before bowing out to the hosts. Similarly, Wales also captured the imagination following their...
