Mexico's 60-strong party, Canada's "mind rooms," Cuba's travel travails: Gold Cup's off-field challenges

Herculez Gomez joins ESPN FC to talk what he expects from the United States in their third and final group stage match against Panama.

HOUSTON -- Canada head coach John Herdman tells a story about the New Zealand women's national team bus being hijacked in Papua New Guinea, the equipment stolen and the players left stranded.

The 43-year-old has been involved in over 20 international tournaments over his career and while this Gold Cup hasn't thrown up a story quite as extreme as bus hijackings, for Herdman and the rest of the head coaches, back-room staff and players it has presented quite the challenge.

The level of competition...

Nigeria ride depth, central midfield partnership past Guinea and into AFCON round of 16

Kenneth Omeruo's late header saw Nigeria clinch a spot in the round of 16 at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

After missing the previous two Africa Cup of Nations, Nigeria have announced their tournament return in 2019 with two wins from two. Their latest, against Guinea, was more about being efficient than spectacular. With two wins, they become the first team to reach the knockout stage of the expanded 24 team Africa Cup of Nations.

Once again, they left it late, Kenneth Omeruo sneaking in at the near post in the 73rd minute to glance a header beyond Guinea goalkeeper Ibrahima Kone's despairing flap...

Chelsea face a tough transfer ban: Can their Loan Army come to their rescue?

This is the most difficult offseason Chelsea will face in 16 years.

The five-time Premier League champions have sold star attacker Eden Hazard to Real Madrid for a fee starting at £90 million, and while the January capture of 20-year-old American winger Christian Pulisic for £57.6m will help soften the blow, Chelsea won't be able to make any further additions to supplement an aging squad. A transfer ban will prevent the club from signing any players from other clubs over the next 12...

Drama at death as Chennaiyin miss out on AFC knockouts

Chennaiyin FC went into Wednesday's AFC Cup fixture away to Nepal's Manang Marshyangdi in Lalitpur knowing that their fate wasn't in their hands. With eight points, they trailed Bangladesh club Dhaka Abahani by two points. With Abahani playing against Minerva in Guwahati at the same time, Chennaiyin needed a win to top the group and hope for a draw or a Minerva win in the other game to progress to the inter-zonal semi-finals. Not since 2012, when East Bengal and Salgaocar finished bottom of their...

U.S. selection headaches for Berhalter

Herculez Gomez joins ESPN FC to talk what he expects from the United States in their third and final group stage match against Panama.
USMNT players Aaron Long, Gyasi Zardes and Paul Arriola spoke after their Trinidad and Tobago victory as their eyes are firmly fixed on their next opponent, Panama.
USMNT coach Gregg Berhalter explains how his team went from underperforming in pre-tournament friendlies to scoring ten goals in their first two Gold Cup matches.

Momentum, confidence, sharpness, cohesiveness; these are chemical-like traits for a team, and they are as desirable as they are difficult to quantify.

Yet it's clear that in the wake of the 6-0 thrashing administered by the United States in Saturday's Gold Cup match against Trinidad and Tobago, these qualities are now at their peak for the U.S., at least in terms of the Gregg Berhalter era. The Americans' spot in the quarterfinals is also assured. This makes the U.S. manager's approach in Wednesday's...
