'Pity' Martinez aiming to keep Atlanta on top, enhance chances for a European future

Alejandro Moreno and Sebastian Salazar discuss the pressure on South American Player of the Year, Pity Martinez, in his first season at Atlanta United.

Miguel Almiron's big-money move to Newcastle United in January may have helped change perceptions of Major League Soccer. Much more than an elephant's graveyard, the top professional league in the United States has clearly found alternative models -- such as bringing in some of the biggest talents from South America, having success with them, and then maybe selling them on at a healthy profit.

Atlanta United probably hope that history will repeat itself with their Almiron replacement, Gonzalo "Pity"...

Argentina, Colombia submit joint bid to host 2020 Copa America

Atlanta United star Josef Martinez opens up about the political situation in his home country, Venezuela, and the impact it has had on his family.

The South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) has rejected a proposal from the United States and provisionally awarded the 2020 Copa America tournament to Argentina and Colombia.

CONMEBOL officials meeting in Miami on Wednesday said the joint bid was accepted as a way of "bringing South American football to the fans" and would be subject to a more detailed presentation by both countries.

The next edition of the tournament, usually played by all 10 South American nations and at least two invited...

Diego Maradona gets inflatable tribute from Argentinos Juniors

Argentinos Juniors have handed the legendary Diego Maradona one of the highest honours they have in their power to bestow: an inflatable tunnel created in his image.

Maradona began his professional career with Argentinos as 15-year-old prodigy in 1976, scoring well over 100 goals in five seasons before moving onto Boca Juniors in 1981.

So, as an homage to their "greatest pride," the club they call El Semillero del Mundo (The Seedbed of the World -- a reference to the strength of their youth academy...

Messi returns to Argentina squad for March friendlies, Aguero left out

Alejandro Moreno examines Barcelona's reliance on Lionel Messi after he scored his 50th career hat trick in a win at Sevilla.

Argentina have received a major boost ahead of the Copa America with the return of captain Lionel Messi to the squad after an eight-month absence.

The Barcelona star had taken a sabbatical after the Albiceleste's defeat to eventual winners France in the round of 16 of the 2018 World Cup and was not included in Lionel Scaloni's previous selections.

Scaloni has named Messi and Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel Di Maria, also included for the first time since last summer's tournament, in his 31-man...

Argentines pay tribute to Sala at special memorial

Neil Warnock reveals he had the chance to speak with Emiliano Sala's mother the evening before his funeral services and says there are "what ifs" that will linger.
A period of silence was held to remember the life of Emiliano Sala before kick-off between Southampton and Cardiff at St. Mary's.

Tributes were paid to footballer Emiliano Sala on Saturday at a special memorial in his home region of Santa Fe, Argentina.

The body of the 28-year old, who died in a plane crash last month, was laid out in a gymnasium in the town where he grew up so friends and family could pay their last respects.

A single-engine plane carrying Sala from his French club Nantes to his new team Cardiff City crashed on Jan. 21 in the English Channel, before he could make his debut for the Premier League side.
