Kane's cameo impresses but England's Carrick has a calming influence

Footie News - Sat, 03/28/2015 - 00:37
Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling scored their first international goal for England as the Three Lions earned a 4-0 win against Lithuania and remain perfect in Group E. The ESPN FC crew react to England's solid performance against Lithuania at Wembley Stadium and whether it will continue. LONDON -- Of course, the headlines were all Harry Kane's, and this was not the night when Wayne Rooney entered England's legend as his country's record goalscorer. He is on 47, two short of Sir Bobby Charlton. Five wins from five, Roy Hodgson's England are ruthlessly ticking over in Euro qualifying. Kane, victim to Hodgson conservatism when consigned to the bench, seized his chance. This is truly his time. In the dug-out, Rooney, who had given way for Kane, smiled as the next big thing scored from...

Miguel Herrera must reclaim CONCACAF for Mexico

Footie News - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 22:38
Mexico last claimed the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2011, defeating the United States 4-2 in the final. LOS ANGELES -- Let's put an end to all this confusion and to the Utopian idea that Mexico is searching for two national teams for the summer. Mexico head coach Miguel Herrera's first and only assignment is to regain supremacy in the CONCACAF region. It can all be summed up by one simple fact: Herrera has never managed an official game in Mexico's footballing region. He ensured the country's passage to the World Cup in Brazil against New Zealand in a playoff scenario governed by FIFA rather than...

Copa del Rey final venue, Barcelona's Camp Nou, not decided without a fight

Footie News - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 21:31
The Camp Nou will host the 2015 Copa del Rey final, a decision that's been a long time coming in Spain. And so the soap opera comes to an end, and what fun it was. So much fun, in fact, that we'll do it all over again next year. Same time, same place. Or should that read "different time, different place" instead? Not long after one Seville-based sports newspaper announced that the Copa del Rey final would be held at Real Betis' Benito de Villamarin stadium, the Spanish football Federation announced that the Copa del Rey final will be held at FC Barcelona's Camp Nou stadium on May 30.

Footie News - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 20:38
Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic says controversies won't bring him down, and he will stay at the top. Prior to Brazil's 3-1 win over France at Stade de France on Thursday, Paris was alight with chatter about one of the Selecao's star defenders in Marquinhos. However, the Paris Saint-Germain man was not in action against Les Bleus because of an injury picked up after a gruelling few weeks leading into the international break as the defending French champions fight for success on four fronts. The reason for Marquinhos being the focus of much of the pre-match discussion was the fact that PSG made it...
