Hariss Harun says Home United can beat Albirex in Singapore Cup

Jason Dasey and John Wilkinson preview Home United's S.League encounter with Albirex Niigata.

Home United utility Hariss Harun insists his side have proved they can more than match Albirex Niigata (S) as they prepare for this week's two-legged Singapore Cup semifinal.

The Protectors snapped the S.League leaders' 12-game winning streak when they met in the S.League last Tuesday, pushing them all the way in a 1-1 draw.

The result still damaged Home United's fading hopes of catching Albirex in the race for this year's title, as they remain 13 points adrift. Though the Protectors have three...

Jason Dasey and Nick Ward give their early thoughts and predictions ahead of the 2017/18 A-League.
FC's Jason Dasey recalls his time working with legendary Aussie soccer commentator Les Murray ahead of his state funeral.

Two-time A-League Golden Boot Shane Smeltz is finding his shooting boots at the right time in Indonesia's Liga 1 and it may spell bad news for Argentina.

The well-travelled New Zealand sharpshooter has scored in both his last two games for his Indonesian club Borneo. The sweetest strike was the only goal of a 1-0 win against local rivals Persiba Balikpapan on Monday.

"I was very pleased to get the winning goal," Smeltz told ESPN FC. "It was even better to score in a derby, and that is extra special....

Shanghai Shenhua reject Carlos Tevez reserve talk, but tell him to try harder

Carlos Tevez was left out of Shanghai Shenhua's two previous Chinese Super League games.

Shanghai Shenhua have rejected reports Carlos Tevez has been banished from the first team, but did challenge the forward "to show the real stuff."

Tevez has struggled to impress since joining Shenhua from Boca Juniors in December, having scored just three goals in 13 games.

Shenhua chairman Wu Xiaohui said last week the 33-year-old's form "didn't meet our expectations," while he has also been booed by his own team's supporters.

Tevez was left out of Shenhua's two previous Chinese Super League games,...
