Ramos: Messi picks worst time to "retire"

Lionel Messi

Ramos: Osorio's test will be team selection

Messi's retirement among biggest takeaways from Copa Centenario

Argentina World Cup winner Mario Kempes joins SportsCenter to discuss Lionel Messi's decision to retire from international football.

Might Lionel Messi have been shaping up to retire from international football even if Argentina had won the Copa Centenario? It is a possibility. The criticisms of the Argentine FA that he said he would outline after the tournament, and the way he said he had been thinking about his decision, could add up to a plan of jumping ship whatever happened at MetLife Stadium.

If this is the case, then Argentina's penalty shootout defeat to Chile -- and Messi's missed kick -- probably make a rethink more...

Lionel Messi's decision to retire comes at worst possible time for Argentina

The FC crew answer your tweets about the Copa America final, Messi and Ronaldo's relationship, and Higuain's gaffe.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- On Sunday, Lionel Messi made a decision that has since rocked the football world. Upon the conclusion of Argentina's 4-2 loss on penalties to Chile in the final of the Copa America Centenario, he announced that his career with the national team is over. It's a decision that has shocked Argentina and Barcelona fans, in particular -- and one that could not have been easy to make.

The best player in the world is struggling and seemingly lacking confidence at the worst possible...

Juan Carlos Osorio's biggest test will be Mexico team selection

One Nacion's John Sutcliffe and Tom Marshall discuss Juan Carlos Osorio's future and Chivas Guadalajara's new Mexican-American signing, Alejandro Zendejas.

CHICAGO -- Juan Carlos Osorio is still in charge of the Mexico national team. He submitted his resignation, according to Mexico Football Federation (FMF) general secretary Guillermo Cantu, but they reconciled. The agreement was rebuilt on the ruins of Mexico's 7-0 defeat against Chile.

In the midst of shameful defeat, Osorio is securing victories.

Osorio's small wins despite defeat

1. He was given a vote of confidence by the FMF over the players. Extremely unusual.

2. He was never told to compromise...

CONMEBOL way above CONCACAF at Copa America Centenario

The ESPN FC crew look ahead to the Copa America Centenario final, a rematch of last year's final that saw Chile defeat Argentina on penalties.

LOS ANGELES -- A major takeaway from this summer's Copa America Centenario is that CONMEBOL has put its excellence on display in comparison to the CONCACAF nations that took part. Argentina, Chile and Colombia clearly demonstrated the gap that exists between them and the United States, Mexico and Costa Rica, among others.

It's a question of quality, of players like Lionel Messi, Arturo Vidal and James Rodriguez. And just when we thought the gap between the two confederations was narrowing, the...

For Juan Carlos Osorio's Mexico, the future is bright despite 7-0 Chile loss

ESPN FC's Tom Marshall and John Sutcliffe discuss Juan Carlos Osorio's plans to stay on as Mexico head coach and Alejandro Zendejas' reported move to Chivas.

What was clear after Mexico's 7-0 defeat to Chile was that Juan Carlos Osorio mismanaged his tactics. His team simply came up short time and again in its efforts to counter Chile's strong possession play.

In Mexico's starting XI against Chile, Osorio employed a 4-3-3 formation similar to the one he used vs. Venezuela, which worked well in the latter half of that match. Miguel Layun, Andres Guardado and Jesus "Tecatito" Corona were brilliant in the last 45 minutes against La Vinotinto, but Jesus...
