Thu, 21 Jun 2018 05:30:00 PDT

England's Trent Alexander-Arnold admitted Gareth Southgate hasn't decided the team to face Panama aimed reports of a leaked team sheet. England right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold says he's cheering for Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane at this summer's World Cup. England began their tournament with a last-gasp win over Tunisia on Monday, while Senegal edged Poland in their opener the following day.

Women allowed in Iran stadium to watch World Cup match

Thu, 21 Jun 2018 03:31:00 PDT

Don Hutchison says while Spain narrowly defeated Iran, there was always going to be one winner in the match. Spain managed to walk away with three points against Iran, but the FC crew explain how Iran managed to disrupt La Roja. Diego Costa scored on a deflection to lift Spain past Iran, despite the best efforts of Carlos Queiroz's side to find an equaliser. Women in Iran were permitted to enter a football stadium for the first time since 1979 as fans gathered to watch the national team play in the World Cup on Wednesday. Religious leaders have prevented women from entering stadiums in Iran for decades, though there is no official law against their admittance. But with the help of some moderate politicians, the rules were relaxed to allow men and women to watch Iran face Spain on video screens from inside the Azadi stadium in Tehran. The event...

Did Munir's 13 minutes cost Morocco at the World Cup?

Thu, 21 Jun 2018 03:25:00 PDT

Morocco have certainly won many admirers at this World Cup, even if they became the first side eliminated from the tournament when they were defeated 1-0 by Portugal at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Wednesday. That loss, coupled with their shock opening defeat by Iran means that the Atlas Lions cannot advance to the Last 16, capping off a miserable week in which they also lost the World Cup 2026 bid. However, while elimination was felt painfully by the many Moroccan fans in attendance in Moscow...

Brazil to player third-choice right-back with Danilo out vs. Costa Rica

Thu, 21 Jun 2018 03:16:00 PDT

After a strange 72 hours in the Brazil camp, the FC panel give thought to what sort of advice Tite would've given Neymar to get him back to his best. After returning to training, Neymar says he's feeling better physically and hopes to improve in Brazil's second group stage game against Costa Rica. ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop and Alexis Nunes predict who will come out on top between Brazil-Costa Rica, Nigeria-Iceland and Serbia-Switzerland. Neymar returned to Brazil's training after sustaining an injury during Tuesday's training session. Brazil defender Danilo has been ruled out of Friday's Group E game with Costa Rica with a thigh problem and will be replaced by Corinthians right-back Fagner, the Brazilian Football Confederation said on Thursday. Danilo, who was promoted to a starting role after Dani Alves pulled out of the squad with an injury in May, tweaked his right thigh during training, team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said. He will undergo physiotherapy treatment immediately but a firm date for his return was not given. Brazil...

Argentina's World Cup struggles not surprising given the side's widespread problems, lack of direction

Thu, 21 Jun 2018 03:04:00 PDT

The FC crew lay into Jorge Sampaoli and inspect Lionel Messi's negative demeanour after Argentina's embarrassing defeat to Croatia. The FC team answer your tweets on whether Argentina would win their next match if they sack their coach and Croatia's chances of winning it all. ESPN's Sam Borden shares his thoughts on Croatia's 3-0 win which leaves Argentina on the brink of a World Cup exit. No one who has followed Argentina in recent times could possibly be surprised by their World Cup displays. They are a shambles, and have been heading for this destination for some time. The causes are both short and long term. The latter, the long term, has to do with the astonishing decline in their youth development work. Between 1995 and 2007 they won the Under-20 World Cup on five separate occasions. Even more important than the triumphs were the players they were continually producing for the...
