Is football facing a new age of stadium terrorism after Paris attacks?

PARIS -- I am writing minutes after Germany-Holland was cancelled in Hanover on Tuesday over fears of a planned terrorist attack inside the stadium. This might be a new age of stadium terrorism. If so, I witnessed the start of it four days ago in Paris.

I left home for the France-Germany game on what felt like a normal Friday evening. I live in Paris and am a regular at the Stade de France. But about 20 minutes into that match, we heard a loud explosion that seemed to come from just outside the...

1. Zlatan gets his final chance 

Cometh the hour, cometh the Zlatan. Perhaps no other footballer has more expertly crafted his image than Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but the reality is that beyond the sound bites and the bravado, he is the difference more often than not for Sweden when it really matters. His two goals in Denmark mean...

Hungary have nothing to lose at Euro 2016 after unexpected qualification

Hungary haven't qualified for a major tournament for three long decades, and it looked like they would need some help from above if they were to end that barren run. According to the TV commentator Istvan Hajdu, that is exactly what happened on Thursday in the first leg of Euro 2016 qualifying playoff against Norway in Oslo.

With three minutes remaining and Hungary leading 1-0, Norway midfielder Stefan Johansen's shot hit the bar. The ball came to Pal Andre Helland who had an empty goal at his mercy,...

Jon Walters inspires Ireland in win over Bosnia-Herzegovina to reach Euros

DUBLIN -- Three thoughts from Republic of Ireland's 2-0 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina at the Aviva Stadium in European Championship qualifying playoffs, which sent the hosts to Euro 2016 in France next summer.

1. Ireland reach Euro 2016

Ireland reach the heady heights of Euro 2016, and precisely because they brilliantly kept their focus. Bosnia-Herzegovina lost theirs on the way to losing this game 2-0 and the tie 3-1 on aggregate.

Bosnia-Herzegovina getting punished for poor midfield play

Mehmed Bazdarevic may have been right when he said that it was too foggy to watch the most of the first playoff match between his Bosnia-Herzegovina side and the Republic of Ireland, but it was visible enough to see how big of an opportunity Bosnia wasted on Friday night in Zenica. The 1-1 draw at the Bilino Polje Stadium is a result that gives a big advantage to Martin O'Neill and his boys.

A combative yet limited Ireland team lacking individual quality did not offer much more than solid defending...

1. Forsberg the star even outshines Ibrahimovic

One attacker undoubtedly dominated Sweden's most important moments in their home win, but it wasn't the man many presumed would decide the tie. In key phases of the contest, winger Emil Forsberg stepped up, scoring the opening goal and assisting the second by drawing a penalty, in a...
