Jordi Cruyff's false start as Ecuador national team coach

The Exploding Heads put their spin on how footballers can use home essentials to stay match-ready.
Julien Laurens and Gab Marcotti disagree over the inclusion of James Rodriguez in their 'J' Teams.
Former Brazil captain Cafu recreates the skills he did vs. Pavel Nedved and Diego Simeone in Roma vs. Lazio.

Jordi Cruyff has yet to call up a squad or take a training session, let alone oversee his first match as coach of Ecuador. He has, however, already found himself caught up in an institutional crisis at the Ecuadorian FA, which has led to the replacement of the president.

A huge part of the problem has been caused by the coronavirus pause. South America's World Cup qualification campaign was to have kicked off a month ago. Instead, the start has been postponed until September -- and it is possible...

FIFA postpones CONMEBOL's March World Cup qualifiers

Alexis Nunes goes through the latest updates on the coronavirus' impact on football.

FIFA is supporting CONMEBOL's request to suspend the beginning of World Cup qualifiers scheduled for the end of March due to fears over the spread of the coronavirus.

Football's world governing body made the announcement on Thursday after CONMEBOL published a letter on Wednesday with the request to postpone the March matches on behalf of members Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.

FIFA said that details on when the postponed matches...

Ecuador appoint Jordi Cruyff, son of Johan, as new manager

Jordi Cruyff replaces Hernan Gomez who was sacked in August.

Ecuador have hired former Barcelona and Manchester United midfielder Jordi Cruyff as their national team coach.

Cruyff, the son of coaching legend Johan Cruyff, has signed a three-year contract, the Ecuador football federation said.

He is taking the job less than three months before the opening round of South American World Cup qualifiers.

The president of the federation, Francisco Egas, said the appointment of the 45-year-old Cruyff is the first step toward qualifying for the 2022 World Cup...

Jordi Cruyff has a famous name, but is he cut out to coach Ecuador?

The new coach of Ecuador's national football team, Dutchman Jordi Cruyff, speaks during his presentation at the headquarters of the Ecuadorean Football Federation in Quito
Jordi Cruyff was presented to the media on Monday.

Ecuador have been looking to go bold with their national team coach and this time around they have done just that.

Eighteen months ago they re-hired veteran Colombian Hernan Dario Gomez, who had taken them to their World Cup debut in 2002, but it was roundly criticised as a backward step -- a view which gained weight when the team played a dismal 2019 Copa America. Gomez was sacked and Ecuador's FA vowed not to make the same mistake twice. Now they wanted to be modern.

They spent a few months last...

Australia to face Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay in 2020 Copa America

Julien Laurens says Lionel Messi separated himself from other Ballon d'Or finalists by carrying Barcelona.

The Socceroos will tackle global superstar Lionel Messi and Argentina at next year's Copa America after Australia were drawn alongside the co-hosts.

Graham Arnold's men were drawn in Group A for the South American continental championship, which starts on June 12.

That means Australia will play their five group stages matches in Argentina against the two-time World Cup champions, Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia and Paraguay.

The Socceroos' opening match will be against 15-time Copa America champions Uruguay...
