The Mönchengladbach way

Borussia Mönchengladbach are one of the biggest surprises in Europe this season. Facing relegation at the end of last year, manager Lucien Favre has done a remarkable job in instilling a brand new system in his players. The league table doesn't lie, and Mönchengladbach sit in second place, above Bayern Munich and completely capable of snatching the Bundesliga title from Borussia Dortmund.

The past doesn't count. Everything is starting again. Spain continues to strengthen.

With a friendly against England at Wembley on Saturday and the EUROs on the horizon, the time has come for Spain to refresh, and forget everything. Everything won. Everything created.

The Message:

Iker: "No one came to welcome us"
Silva: "We didn't create a new way of playing football"
Xabi: "We weren't admired by the whole world"
Iker: "We didn't take a whole country to the streets"
Villa: "I wasn't the top scorer"
Llorente: "We couldn't bear the pressure"
Del Bosque: "We didn't change the conception of football"
Xavi: "I wasn't the best football player in the Euro 2008"
Llorente: "We are not a team"
Xavi: "We are not European Champions"
Villa: "We are not World Champions"

The shirt is new, the meaning of wearing it remains the same.

NEW YORK -- The U.S. Soccer Federation did not just hire the 35th head coach in national team history, but it perhaps altered the direction of the entire national team program.

Jurgen Klinsmann, the first foreign-born U.S. national team coach in 16 years, touched on a few topics during his first press conference since being hired to replace Bob Bradley on Friday, but he frequently emphasized the culture and direction of soccer in the United States.
