Euro 2016

The future: Hudson-Odoi leads five debutants who impressed on international duty

A new European Championship qualification campaign meant some new faces representing their countries this week. And while many of the youngsters on show, particularly in Germany's enthralling 3-2 victory over the Netherlands, had already made their competitive debuts in the UEFA Nations League, others were representing their countries in a competitive game for the first time. Here are five notable players who had a week to remember.

Germany's new generation impresses, takes first meaningful steps in program's rebuild

Germany scored late in the Netherlands to pull out a win in Euro 2020 qualifying and end a run of five competitive matches without a win.

You didn't think that merely Germany's worst ever World Cup campaign, relegation in the Nations League, a racism crisis and what seemed like the hasty dropping of three national-team pillars would see off Jogi Low, did you?

It was a night that offered promise that Gareth Southgate's side might yet improve from the team that reached the World Cup semifinals last year before sweeping into the UEFA Nations League finals, as a desperately poor Czech team were...

Jaime Mata had given up on football, but now he could win his first cap for Spain

"Thank you very much for the messages, but that's not me," Juan Mata tweeted last week. The Manchester United star received his fair share of congratulations after Luis Enrique announced the new Spain squad ahead of the Euro 2020 qualification campaign, although he's not actually returning to the national team for the first time since 2016. Instead, Getafe striker Jaime Mata was called up and is expected to make his national team debut during this international break thanks to his incredible first...

Is football facing a new age of stadium terrorism after Paris attacks?

PARIS -- I am writing minutes after Germany-Holland was cancelled in Hanover on Tuesday over fears of a planned terrorist attack inside the stadium. This might be a new age of stadium terrorism. If so, I witnessed the start of it four days ago in Paris.

I left home for the France-Germany game on what felt like a normal Friday evening. I live in Paris and am a regular at the Stade de France. But about 20 minutes into that match, we heard a loud explosion that seemed to come from just outside the...

1. Zlatan gets his final chance 

Cometh the hour, cometh the Zlatan. Perhaps no other footballer has more expertly crafted his image than Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but the reality is that beyond the sound bites and the bravado, he is the difference more often than not for Sweden when it really matters. His two goals in Denmark mean...
