Soccer Power Index: Daily update

Explanation of SPI

ESPN's Soccer Power Index (SPI) is a rating system which uses historical data on both the international and club level to predict the outcome of a match. The algorithm uses several years of data, taking into account goals scored and allowed, quality of the lineup fielded, and the location of the match. In addition, SPI weights recent matches more heavily, and also takes into account the importance of the match, so a World Cup match counts much more than a Friendly.

Manuel Pellegrini offered job as Russia coach - reports

Russia coach Leonid Slutsky appeared to announce his resignation "I think after a type of tournament like this you need someone else to take charge of the national side for significant major competitions".

Departing Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has been offered a job as the new Russia coach, according to reports.

The Russian Football Union has reportedly targeted the 62-year-old after coach Leonid Slutsky suggested he would resign on Monday following Russia's 3-0 defeat to Wales at Euro 2016 which resulted in his side crashing out of the tournament.

The Chilean's contract with City expires on June 30, with the club having already announced the appointment of Pep Guardiola as his replacement.

Australia still feeling the effects of Tim Cahill's goal vs. the Netherlands

Tim Cahill
Tim Cahill's goal did much more than simply bring Australia level with the Netherlands.

One strike with conviction at the 2014 World Cup was enough for Tim Cahill to set Australia on a revolutionary new path toward unprecedented achievement. Belief, quite simply, cannot be underestimated as a mechanism of this success.

Having succumbed to a highly fancied Chile side 3-1 in their first Group B game of that tournament, the Socceroos' prospects appeared bleak when they conceded an early goal to the Netherlands in Game 2, courtesy of a swift Arjen Robben counterattack. The enthusiasm gained...
