2022 World Cup could go to U.S. if there was a revote - Greg Dyke

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti reacts to the fallout over the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, where he feels the 2018 World Cup will remain in Russia, but there may be a strong case to revote for the 2022 World Cup.

The 2022 World Cup could be hosted by the United States as an alternative to Qatar, according to England Football Association chairman Greg Dyke.

On Tuesday, FIFA president Sepp Blatter announced his resignation amid the corruption scandal that has rocked world football's governing body.

Possible FIFA presidential successors hail Sepp Blatter's resignation

ESPN's Bob Ley and Shaka Hislop discuss where FIFA will go from here in their search for a new president.

UEFA president Michel Platini was among those to praise Sepp Blatter's decision to resign as FIFA president on Tuesday.

Platini had personally asked his former mentor to resign last week in the wake of indictments against top FIFA officials on U.S. racketeering charges, but Blatter declined and went on to be re-elected to a fifth term as president on Friday.

But Platini was placated on Tuesday after Blatter revealed his decision to step down as soon as a successor can be found.

Grading Europe-based Americans for 2014-15 club season

U.S. midfielder Alejandro Bedoya had a stellar season with Nantes of Ligue 1.

European football remains a mixed bag for the development of most players in the United States player pool. For some, there is regular playing time and the opportunity to play in roles that advance both their club and international careers. For others, there is a lack of playing time and a level of career uncertainty as they patiently await their chance to shine.

The consistency of European regulars like Brad Guzan, Fabian Johnson and Rubio Rubin directly relates to the perception of and playing opportunities for emerging prospects like DeAndre Yedlin, Joe Gyau and Julian Green. Because of this, U.S. manager Jurgen Klinsmann must rely on these established European professionals, using their performance over the 2014-15 season as a barometer for their impact on this summer's Gold Cup along with future tournaments.

How did Europe-based Americans fair this club season? Here are grades for a dozen players in the national team pool who earned regular playing time in European leagues, with regular playing time defined as making appearances in more than half of their club's games. As such, players like Yedlin, Gyau, Green, Bobby Wood and Emerson Hyndman are not reviewed as they received limited playing time this season due to either injury, poor form or being out of contract or favor with their clubs. Grades are based on performance and improvement from last season to this season, while also factoring in season-long form. 

Here are report cards for 12 Europe-based Americans, including analysis on how each player's club performance impacts his USMNT outlook, along with insight from ESPN USMNT reporters Jeff Carlisle and Doug McIntyre.
