Has Gervinho's Parma form been enough for an Afcon call?

As Parma close their Series A season against AS Roma on Sunday, most eyes will be on Daniele de Rossi as he plays his final game for the club after 18 years there. But Ivory Coast's Gervinho could well steal a few glances, having helped Parma avoid the drop.

Gervinho's renaissance at Parma this season has been as joyous as it was unexpected, and he may yet end his international career on a high when the Ivory Coast contest the Africa Cup of Nations next month.

Cristiano Ronaldo's first year at Juventus lacked the one thing they all wanted: a Champions League title

Cristiano Ronaldo was presented with Serie A's inaugural MVP award last weekend. The decision to create a new set of prizes -- recognising the best goalkeeper, defender, midfielder and attacker -- was officially part of the league's latest rebrand but the timing felt like more than a coincidence: Was it an initiative they'd have launched if Ronaldo hadn't moved to Italy last summer? The new prize helped Ronaldo feel the love and appreciation of his new home while also feeling like a stunt, designed...

Mr. Indispensable, from Lionel Messi to Virgil Van Dijk: Which player can your team not live without?

Little known fact: When Beyonce sang, "I'll have another you by tomorrow, so don't you ever for a second get to thinking you're irreplaceable," she wasn't talking about Lionel Messi or Virgil van Dijk or anyone else on this list for that matter.

Juventus celebrated their eighth consecutive Serie A title following their final home game of the season.

Even the most frigid of Juventus haters could not help but be moved. Juve president Andrea Agnelli and outgoing manager Max Allegri sat up on stage together following their Allianz Arena season finale -- a 1-1 draw with Atalanta. Just before the news conference, the entire Juventus squad trooped in and took their places around their outgoing coach. It was the polar opposite to how the previous boss left, when Antonio Conte, who had won three-straight Serie A titles, resigned abruptly on a torrid...

Kylian Mbappe, Christian Pulisic and Frenkie de Jong lead soccer's 30 best players under 21

It's 2019. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the dominant forces in soccer, winning nearly every individual award and leading their clubs to title after title. Yet both are in the twilights of their careers, at 31 and 34 years old respectively, and previous heirs to the throne such as Neymar and Gareth Bale haven't come close to filling their boots.

It's the same story for a slew of defensive talent, as Vincent Kompany, Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Buffon and Giorgio Chiellini are approaching...
