Giovanni Simeone and Argentina have run rampant thus far at the South Amercian Under-20 championships, but tougher competition awaits the Albiceleste in the second round.

With all due respect to Ecuador, Bolivia, Venezuela and Chile, it is time for the main event of the competition. In the South American Under-20 Championships, the aforementioned four teams have been knocked out, six are still standing and over the next few days they will now play each other in the tournament's decisive second stage.

The stakes now rise. Four of the remaining six will make it through to this year's Under-20 World Cup. One will join hosts Brazil in next year's Olympics -- another...

FIFA finds original stone base of lost Jules Rimet trophy

Italy officials present the Jules Rimet Cup to their Brazilian counterparts before the World Cup begins in 1950. The base of the trophy was recovered by FIFA this week.

ZURICH -- A piece of the original World Cup trophy has been found and will be displayed in the new FIFA museum.

A staff member found the stone base of the Jules Rimet trophy last month in basement storage at FIFA headquarters, museum creative director David Ausseil said Tuesday.

"It's like finding an Egyptian mummy," Ausseil told The Associated Press. "You can't put a price tag on it because it's family jewels."

Walter Roque -- a Uruguayan pioneer who served South American football

Uruguayan and South American football as a whole owe much to the work down by Walter Roque, on and off the pitch.

A small left winger, Roque was part of the Uruguay side that won the 1956 Copa America, and it is worth pausing to reflect on the significance of the sky blue shirt at that time.

Uruguay had won the World Cup twice,...

Diego Fagundez's decision: Play with Uruguay Under-20s or wait for U.S.?

Diego Fagundez is facing a crucial decision for his international future. Play for Uruguay or wait for the U.S.?

Diego Fagundez has long been hoping to return to the U.S. national team program, but citizenship issues have taken his international career south. Should the New England Revolution midfielder play for Uruguay in Under-20 World Cup qualifiers, he will be unable to switch to the U.S. in the future.

But Fagundez, who played for U.S. junior teams as a 13- and 14-year-old, is planning to make the most of his situation.

Fagundez, 19, is among 27 players on a provisional roster preparing for the South...

A week's worth of watching the international 'week of football'

The ESPN FC team discuss Tuesday's international friendlies, including Scotland's loss at home to England and what the United States need to do to get back on track.

Turkey vs. Brazil

For some reason impossible to comprehend, British broadcasters have no interest in a relatively meaningless exhibition game between two foreign nations, but we are made of sturdy stuff at ESPN FC, and lights are cast upon...
