World Soccer Power Rankings Spain rises after wins over England Croatia; USA cracks top

Yes, Ricardo Garecas team lost both matches but Im sure hes impressed with what hes seen from the team. No shame in losing to both Netherlands and Germany by scorelines. Both games will help with his teams improvement.

As expected, Brazil beats the U.S. and El Salvador in friendlies. Neymar scored twice and inches closer to Peles national team goalscoring record.

Steffen is the futureZack Steffen continues to show that he is the future of this national team in goal. The talented Columbus Crew star can pull off some off some crazy saves, and his catlike quickness and reactions are a reason why he is so highly rated. He showed that again against Mexico

And while Tuesday featured some ntastic games including a shocking scoreline between Spain and Croatia, all eyes in North America were on the USA vs. Mexico battle that showcased plenty of U talent that could make an impact during the Qatar qualifying cycle. A United States winhas to have ns excited. Sure, friendly scorelines dont mean too much, but they do grow in importance when it is against your rival, and there are three things that should excite the U.S. ns.

Forget about playing Brazil it was always going to be a scheduled loss. That match was all about seeing how you stacked up against some of the best talent in the world. That said, beating your continental rival and continuing the youth movement should have ns excited.

Its a new era with a ton of young talent getting their chance to represent the country. Decent results, but its more about the experience and improvement.

Here are the top teams in the world after the recent international matches

Juventus is in league with goals and five conceded

Jose Mourinho hopes to get the Red Devils back on track

Miazgas toughness is neededLook, this isnt to condone mocking or trash talking, but Matt Miazga calling out Diego Lainezs gave his side a bit of jolt, which is something that has clearly been missing. After iling to qualify for the World Cup, the players were obviously down and a bit lost, wiped out and not able to give any more. But that toughness, those moments that pump up the crowd and show your teammates you arent backing down, they all play a role in the teams mentality and state of confidence in the moment.

Eso sI que no me lo esperaba… ¡Gol de Adams, anotTeamUSA!

And Adams also scored his first international goal against El Tri. Not a bad way to find the net for the first time in a U.S. uniform, huh?

Adams and McKennie could be a top midfieldIts a luxury to have players like Weston McKinnie and Tyler Adams who are under the age of in midfield. McKennie is a young star in the Bundesliga and Adams is likely to headed to Europe sooner rather than later. They go way back and have a strong bond off the field as well as on it, and their chemistry is evident when they play. Having them at the core of the midfield for years to come should have USA ns thrilled.

Didnt look sharp at home to France. Sure, thats a tough opponent but this felt much like the World Cup team that had talent but really couldnt put it together for stretches.

The Super Eagles should cruise through Africa Cup of Nations qualifying and just beat Seychelles . Are they the most talented team in Africa?

The World Cup is in the rearview mirror, and now the focus has shifted for many national teams throughout the world. Teams in Europe are involved in the inaugural UEFA Nations League, African teams are in qualification for their continental tournament, and September also featured some toptier international friendlies.

It was an easy win over Mexico that puts the team a step closer to qualifying

World Soccer Power Rankings Cristiano Ronaldos Juventus takes top spot; LiverpoolChelsea llout

SaintEtienneA hot start with four wins and three draws in its first eight games, the club is in fourth place in Ligue and just a point off of first place. SaintEtienne just dominated Monaco and has a huge game with Lille next Saturday. And the key has been the signing of Wahbi Khazri. The Tunisian international struggled a bit at Sunderland, but the talent was there, and he showed it at Rennes on loan last season. SaintEtienne scoops him up, and hes got four goals in recent weeks, scoring both against Monaco. Hes an attacking midfielder/winger who can change a teams attack, and hes done just that.

These two clubs ce off once again in the biggest cup in South America

Bounced back from some bad results to win their last two, including beating rival Lazio on Saturday . Thats a win that will give them momentum.

Lautaro Martinez got his first goal for the club and now they are on a little bit of a run, but this team probably isnt good enough to win Serie A.

World Soccer Power Rankings Cristiano Ronaldos Juventus takes top spot; LiverpoolChelsea llout

WatfordCurrently in sixth place in the Premier League with points and now out of the EFL Cup, dont overlook how elimination from that competition could help this team focus more on league play. And the key has been possessing the ball, which in turn has helped this team defensively. In seven league games, the team has allowed eight goals. Whats even more impressive, this team is where it is having already played Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal. With games against Bournemouth, Wolves, Huddersfield, Newcastle and Southampton, there are some massive chances to gain some points in the coming weeks.

Massive late win at Fluminense thanks to Evertons wild heelflick goal. Top four in the league now and on its way to the Copa Libertadores semifinals, it seems.

Honorable mentionsReal Betis ESP, Leicester City ENG, Lille FRA, Hertha Berlin GER.

Dont look now, but the Gunners are flying high under Unai Emery. The attack has looked dangerous and finally this team looks like a topfour contender.

Sevilla jumps into the rankings because of four straight wins where it averaged four goals per game. No way it can keep this up, though, especially with some tough matches to come against Celta and Barca.

Is unlikely we will see anything similar to those two at any point soon, but surprises in the sport are always exciting and end up becoming mustwatch TV. In light of that, lets take a look at the three teams that have surprised the most in European soccer to start the season

Everybody loves a Cinderella story. Be it Leicester City in the Premier League or Croatia in the World Cup, having a team come from out of nowhere to turn a competition on its heads creates memories that last for years. For many years to come, Leicester and Croatia will be looked at as two teams that surpassed expectations and any other Cinderella will be compared to them.

Out of the Copa do Brasil but flying high in the Copa Libertadores and now in first place in the league. Theyve won five of six in the league and are ahead of Internacional on goal differential.

Crashed out of Copa Argentina but playing lots of bench players but got back to its winning ways in the league on Sunday night. Big one with Cruzeiro next.

Struggled against Pachuca and have lost two of three after an undefeated start. Still in first place though in Liga MX, but the defense had an off night.

This team is rolling under Eduardo Coudet. They may be out of the Copa Libertadores, but La Academia has built a fivepoint lead atop the Argentine first ision le.

This team hasnt lost since February, and the draws have turned into wins. Back into top four and the vorite to get by Independiente on Tuesday.

SassuoloSimilarly to Watford, its impressive to see this team where it is considering the competition it has played. The club is in fifth place in Serie A with points through seven games, having already played AC Milan, Juventus and Inter Milan. Napoli is next, and chances are this team will slip, but it has been able to consistently create chances in front of goal to give itself a chance. And remember KevinPrince Boateng? He has revived his career with the club with four goals in six games.

There is no question that in the sport of soccer, you usually need eslished superstars to reach the pinnacle of the sport, especially in Europe. And while every team simply doesnt have the likes of a Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, its just as important to have role players who dont get nearly as much recognition as the stars but are equally important. Just look at the Argentina national team from the last World Cup. It was Lionel Messi and more, and we all know how that went down without the proper support around Messi to help the team gel.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored again and this team is undefeated on the season without even a draw. Wojciech Szczesny has been better than most thought.

Marc Albrighton, Leicester CityThe player Chelsea should have signed instead of Danny Drinkwater. Marc Albrighton isnt the most agile or stylish player you will ever see, but he is a rock in the middle of the field and has been so important to Leicester City from even before winning the Premier League in . He can play on either side of the midfield but is the man in the middle, possessing the patience and ball control needed to get the attack going and prevent the opposing the team from doing so. Hell never be one of those he has to be in the national team guys, but he has had a ntastic career and helped create one of the greatest stories in Premier League history with the Foxes improbable run to the title.

Stringing together some wins in league play and beating rival Boca Juniors will make every n of the club happy. Have to finish the job against Independiente in Copa Libertadores.

Those underrated, perhaps undervalued from the outside players are really the key to creating consistency and securing results in close games. Be it a clinical forward who comes up in big moments to a midfielder who can help control the pace of the match and keep the ball away from an opposing team. Every club has players who ll short of superstar status but deserve to be included among the best players on the globe. Here are three players in the Premier League who arent viewed as stars by most but at this point, they deserve to be up there with the best players in the league.

A win and a draw this week but the play hasnt been impressive. Fortunate to beat Club Brugge on Christian Pulisics fluke goal, but the creativity in attack just isnt there lately.

Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolWe could just change his name to Johnny on the spot. What an unselfish, talented player who has blown up at Anfield. The yearold Brazilian gets better with each year, and following his play at Hoffenheim, he has become an important part of the Reds attack alongside Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. No season was better than last when he scored a careerhigh goals, of which came in the Champions League. He always puts his team first. Just look back at this summers World Cup when Brazil beat Costa Rica in the group stage. It was a goal from Philippe Coutinho that won it in added time, and it was Firmino who created it with his teamfirst header into the heart of the box. Instead of going for the inidual glory, he put his team in the best position to win, and it is that unselfishness that makes him so great.

Jose Mourinho hopes to get the Red Devils back on track

They get a pass for getting destroyed at Barcelona, because this team is killing it domestically. in the Ereisie and just crushed rival Ajax .

The yearold joined Tottenham from Bayer Leverkusen in and has repaid the team with goals in games. Hes ster than you think, smarter than you think and can put the ball away from any spot. He may not be as renowned as a guy like Harry Kane, but he is crucial to the Spurs success and consistency.

Two straight wins via the stop time gamewinning goal. That will get confidence going and keep belief there for a while that no result is out of reach.

HeungMin Son, TottenhamAnother player who is similar to Firmino when it comes to just seemingly always an impact. Son is Asias biggest soccer star in years and blows you away when you watch him play.

FIFAs decision to use Grozny for a World Cup team camp is absolutely shocking and outrageous, Human Rights Watch associate director Jane Buchanan told The Associated Press. FIFA should reverse their decision and move the training camp to another city.

FIFA approved Chechnya as a World Cup base for Egypt and immediately met calls on Friday to reverse its decision in the ce of charges of human rights violations by the Russian regions strongman leader.

World Soccerof the Best Soccer Players in the World

World Soccerof the Best Soccer Players in the World Who are the Best Defenders in the World?

Who Are The Top Barcelona Players of All Time?

Team number Sweden, Manchester United

Meet Portuguese Soccer Star Cristiano Ronaldo

Every n has an opinion about the worlds best soccer players, but nearly everyone agrees on a few players. Many of these stars play for the elite soccer teams Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Manchester figure prominently in this list and a few of them are already considered legends, like Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. All of them contribute to the global appeal that soccer ns call the beautiful game.

Who Are the Best African Players in European Soccer?

A multiyear winner of FIFAs Player of the Year Award, Lionel Messi is generally considered to be thebest soccer player of all time. His ability to mesmerize defenders with a mix of skill and pace is unmatched, and it often appears as though the ball is glued to his feet. Messi led his home country, Argentina, to the World Cup final, losing to Germany, and to the finals of the and Copa Americas. A serial winner with his club, the Barcelona star is versatile enough to play anywhere across the frontline.

This winger further enhanced his glowing reputation with some impressive showings for Holland at the World Cup. Robbens deadly combination of pace and trickery is a nightmare for defenders, while he scores more goals than the average winger. Robben has been at the top of the game for years now, having had stints with Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich. Injuries held him back in the and seasons, but he resigned for the season with Bayern Munich.

Neymar has been playing pro soccer since he was , and he quickly eslished his bona fides in the sport. Neymar has scored more goals than Messi and Ronaldo at the same stage of their careers and has the capacity to be the very best once Messis career begins to wind down. Alongside the Argentine and Suarez, he forms one of the bestattacking ​lineups in the history of the sport. In , Neymar was named the captain of Brazils soccer team at the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

A consummate finisher, Sergio Aguero was part of Argentinas run to the World Cup finals, where they lost to Germany. Aguero has been key in the two title wins under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini, scoring that mous late winner against QPR in to seal the Premier League. Quick, with an excellent first touch and ability to bring others into play, the Argentine has few weaknesses and is arguably the best signing since Manchester City was taken over by the Abu Dhabi United group in .

The Barcelona striker is not everyones cup of tea, but his ability is not up for debate. Luis Suarez is a master at weaving his way into the penalty box, deadly in oneonone situations, and an excellent freekick taker. His linkup play with teammates is of the highest order, and he is a fighter who will always give percent for the cause. A penchant for conning referees remains his Achilles heel, but that did not stop Barcelona from paying Liverpool . million for the player in July . Suarez quickly helped them to the treble.

Position Midfield/Forward Wales, Forward Real Madrid

Position Forward Holland, Midfielder Bayern Munich

Gareth Bale, the Welsh attacker, is a supreme dribbler who boasts the pace and skill to beat multiple opponents. Bale is also a great finisher and capable of scoring consistently from long range. His performance in the UEFA Champions League title game win over Atltico Madrid is a career standout, as is his goal against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final.

Hands down thebest goalkeeper in the world, Manuel Neuer exudes confidence in everything he does. Bayern ns were not initially convinced when the club signed him from Schalke in , but few doubters inhabit the Allianz Arena these days. Neuer is superb in oneonone situations and capable of stunning reflex saves. He is also good technically and boasts excellent distribution. Neuer led his German national team to the World Cup title over Argentina.

AllTime Best Soccer Players for Real Madrid

Who Are Soccers Top Defensive Midfielders?

Lionel Messi Barcelonas Understated Superstar

Cristiano Ronaldo is the only player who soccer ns say could be considered Messis equal if not superior. Ronaldo is stronger and taller than the Argentine, and his goalstogames ratio is similar. In , Ronaldo was named FIFAs Player of the Year, his fourth such honor. In ct, he and Messi have been the only two players to win that honor since . Since joiningReal MadridfromManchester Unitedin , Ronaldo has been a revelation, the worldrecord outlay of million look less outrageous with every goal he scores. His mous stopover is imitated in parks right across the world.

Soccer ns of all stripes agree that Andres Iniesta is one of the classiest midfielders in the game.
