The former Manchester United man who never fails to impress was the pick of the players as Portugal took on Northern Ireland in a crucial World Cup Qualification match.

The Seleção who were down to ten men following Helder Postiga’s red card just before half time, were close to tasting defeat at the hands of Michael O'Neill’s men before a brilliant second half hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo ensured that Portugal move one step closer to a berth in the World Cup in Brazil next year.

His antics also saw him achieve a remarkable feat as he became Portugal’s second all time top scorer surpassing Eusebio’s record of 41 goals and is now just four goals shy of being Portugal’s joint top scorer with former Paris Saint Germain striker Pauleta.

USA could clinch World Cup qualification against Mexico on September 10, 2013.As Jozy Altidore said in his ESPN FC article, with four matches remaining, every nation is willing to do what ever it takes to gain the upper hand. Whether that be mentally or physically, it all counts for something at some point. 

Upon their arrival at Juan Santamaria International Airport, the USMNT was greeted by a large group of unhappy Costa Rican fans, showing their discontent for what had happened in their previous match in Denver.

A snow covered pitch left Los Ticos furious, and now the Yanks have to face their frustrations in a match that could mean a lot for their World Cup hopes.

Defeating Costa Rica would be one giant step for Jürgen Klinsmann's side, as they will prepare to take on Mexico in Columbus on Tuesday.

Despite an injury-hit squad, Brazil will prove to be a hard nut to crack for the Socceroos who would be looking to take the friendly game as a learning curve
Unlike this summer’s Confederation’s Cup, Brazil manager, Luiz Felipe Scolari’s squad has been hit with injuries. However, despite a few regulars missing out, Selecao have so much depth within the squad that they are still considered favourites to overcome a plucky Australian side on Saturday.

Neymar is set to play in the Switzerland vs Brazil friendly.Preview: Both teams prepare for a good World Cup 2014 tourney

Almost exactly two months after kicking off their 2013 Confederations Cup campaign with a promising 3-0 victory over Japan, eventual tournament champions Brazil are back on the field of play. On Wednesday night, the Samba Boys will be at the St Jakob-Park to face Europe’s Switzerland.

World Cup winning manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has formed a stable squad this summer. With Neymar leading the attack and David Luiz’s enviable partnership with Thiago Silva in defence, the Brazilian squad looks good enough to dismantle any team.

Scolari is looking to stick with his Confederations Cup squad. PSG’s Maxwell could clinch his first international cap as he is the team’s only new inclusion ahead of Wednesday’s friendly match against the Swiss.

The latter are enjoying a good run in the UEFA World Cup qualifiers. They occupy the top spot in Group E with a four-point advantage over second-placed Albania. The Euro 2008 co-hosts are yet to lose, having won four of their six games so far.

Beating Brazil is not the main objective of Ottmar Hitzfeld’s side although the intent to create an upset is there. Bayern Munich’s Shaqiri is expected to play along with Senderos. For Switzerland, the road to the 2014 FIFA World Cup continues later this year against Iceland and Norway.

Double European Championship winners and World Cup titleholders Spain are still at the summit. The Spaniards are followed by Germany and Radamel Falcao’s Colombia. The latter are feeling the heat, though, as Lionel Messi’s Argentina stand just a place behind with 1,210 points.

England suffered a blow in July as they bowed out of the Top 10. They have regained a bit of pride by moving up to 14th on the table. The biggest fall in the Top 20 was recorded by Ivory Coast; the Elephants have gone five places down and are now in 18th position.  

The United States, however, have something to smile about. The country is improving on the world stage. With the help of living legend Landon Donovan, USA elegantly triumphed at the just-ended CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament.
