  • It wasn’t a great year for the U.S. men’s national team. The biggest problem? Struggles in the final third, says our John D. Halloran.

  • Jonathan Spector on the time he’s spending at center back with Birmingham City: “My versatility has always been a blessing because I've played a lot of games at different positions. But it's also been a hindrance, because it keeps me from playing where I prefer to play. I've been happy with the run of games I've had in central defense. I've always had confidence in my ability there, and it's where I feel most comfortable.”

  • A French interview with Alejandro Bedoya in the aftermath of the Paris attacks: "Sport, football, it is freedom. By playing, we show that we do not fear. When a tragedy happens, it is important that everyone stays together."
