    Gab Marcotti recaps the timeline of events that led up to Milan fans making a sign saying their 'patience is done' with Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. After the furore surrounding his contract situation over the summer, it had been hoped that Gianluigi Donnarumma's future wouldn't be a talking point for at least another 12 months. Sadly, we haven't even made it to the New Year and the AC Milan goalkeeper has spent the week in the headlines. From talk of no release clause being in his contract renewal to chatter of an annulment and being put under pressure to sign a new deal. Add to the pot Mino Raiola's ongoing involvement and speculation...

    Japan's Vahid Halilhodzic has been experimenting with new players and combinations ahead of the 2018 World Cup. The ESPN FC panel discuss Group F which contains Germany, Mexico, Sweden and South Korea.

J.League Player of the Year Yu Kobayashi gave Japan a third minute lead from the penalty spot in Tokyo. But Kim's double, and goals from Jung Woo-young and Yeom Ki-Hun's deflected free-kick, earned the South Koreans an emphatic and historic win. The defeat...
