Edin Dzeko's two goals in Bosnia and Herzegovina's 2-0 victory over Northern Ireland in the UEFA Nations League on Monday saw him reach two personal milestones.

The first goal saw Dzeko pass the 300 career goals mark for club and country, while the second strike put him among the top 10 European international goal scorers off all time with 55 for his national team.

The Roma striker overtook two players -- including England's all-time top scorer, Wayne Rooney -- to go joint seventh. That...

Goals from Steven N'Zonzi and Edin Dzeko, along with a skied penalty from Empoli's Francesco Caputo helped Roma to a 0-2 win at the Stadio Carlo Castellani.

Edin Dzeko continued his upturn in form as Roma made it four straight wins in all competitions to move third in Serie A with a 2-0 win over Empoli. After a midweek Champions League hat trick, the Bosnian striker made sure of a hard-fought three points with his fourth goal in as many days when, with just over five minutes left, he combined with Stephan El Shaarawy before lofting a tidy finish over Pietro Terracciano.

Ancelotti, Napoli the toast of Serie A as Italy rules Champions League

The FC crew discuss where Liverpool fell short at the Stadio San Paolo, taking aim at their inability to adapt to Napoli's potent attack in the second half.
The FC panel examine what's at the heart of Mohamed Salah's scoring struggles for Liverpool, during a stretch where he's scored just once in his last seven games.

On the eve of Liverpool's game in Naples, Jurgen Klopp called Carlo Ancelotti a "smart fox." Wily and venerable, perhaps he had the kitsune from Japanese folklore in mind, the ones who shape-shift and morph into human form, taking the guise of elderly men blessed with superior intelligence and magical powers.

As kickoff approached Wednesday night and the sound system at the San Paolo banged out "Lessons in Love" by Level 42 then "The Final Countdown" by Europe, attention was drawn to Klopp, who...

Immediately the heavy air that has surrounded him...
