FC Daily: Messi quits Argentina; Spain and Italy meet again; and England in action

ESPN's Diego Monroig speaks with Argentina's Lionel Messi about his future, following his side's loss to Chile in the Copa America Centenario final.

It's Monday, June 27, and the Euro 2016 round of 16 wraps up after Sunday's Copa America final saw Lionel Messi and Argentina lose to Chile again.

The big story

Before we get to Monday's action, though, let's focus on a huge developing story: the apparent international retirement of Lionel Messi. In the aftermath of Argentina's Copa America final defeat on penalties against Chile, Messi suggested that his time with the national team could be up.

"My thinking right now and thinking about it in the...

In Liverpool, Wayne Rooney's world is the Oyster

A half-dozen members of Wayne Rooney's family have played for the neighborhood's beloved amateur football team, Oyster Martyrs FC

LIVERPOOL, England -- The bartender's parents haven't come in for a beer today on account of their blistering hangover -- "even Mum," she says. A few Croxteth regulars sip lagers at a pub named The Lobster, most well-known in fancier parts of Liverpool as the place where a guy got shot in the parking lot by street toughs brandishing a shotgun. The furniture is mismatched and the barstools look rotten, and every few minutes, a song plays on the stereo. The first was by the Police, and then after...

Iceland's unbeaten march to face England the story of Euro 2016

The FC crew discuss which teams they've been most surprised by at Euro 2016 despite perhaps having lower expectations.

PARIS -- So many of Iceland's 330,000 inhabitants were in the Stade de France cheering their team past Austria last Wednesday that defender Kari Arnason marveled afterwards: "It's like having your family at the match. I recognized 50 percent of the fans in the stadium." He added, "The best thing is that we're playing England in the second round. That's the team I used to support in big tournaments when we didn't qualify."

Iceland's unbeaten march to face England in Nice on Monday has been the story...

Oxmo Puccino raps about Paris, the World Cup, a world beyond our control

'To me, rappers are the last thermometer of a society' says Oxmo Puccino.

PARIS -- Before he became a rapper, a French hybrid of Biggie and Chuck D, Oxmo Puccino lived in the bleak 19th arrondissement. He and his friends didn't know there was such a thing as the Mona Lisa hanging in a museum across town. Their world revolved around the Danube metro stop, about three blocks west of the ring road that forms the boundary of the city. He never ate in a sit-down restaurant until after his first record came out in 1998. Driving through the "dix-neuf," giving me a tour three...

Super Mario Gomez might be just the throwback Germany needs to win Euro

Mario Gomez feels Germany can continue their football dominance if the team bonds like they did at the 2014 World Cup.

PARIS -- You wonder if, when Joachim Low recalled Mario Gomez to the German national side, he figured he might take him to the Euros and put him in some kind of transparent case with a sign saying BREAK GLASS IN CASE OF EMERGENCY.

We're talking the kind of emergency that occurs when you know you're going to be camped out in the opposition's final third and you need a battle-axe to break down the opposition's bus. It's what Germany experienced in each of their three group games. And it's what they...

Algeria, Cameroon, Nigeria placed in same group for World Cup qualifiers

Yacine Brahimi and Algeria will be out to carry their World Cup form into the African Nations' Cup.
Algeria were a bright spot at the 2014 World Cup, advancing to the knockout stage behind Belgium in Group H.

Friday saw the 20 countries left in the African preliminaries for the 2018 World Cup in Russia divided into five groups of four, from which only the winner of each will progress to Russia in exactly two years' time. A banquet room was a somewhat unsophisticated venue for a World Cup draw, and the palace turned hotel on the banks of the Nile River turned into something of a house of horrors for a few of the continents' heavyweight contenders.

Recent FIFA rankings determined the four pots and delivered...
