Attention turned to Friday's World Cup qualifiers on the latest show...

Gab Marcotti looked at Mexico's plight and Samuel Eto'o's return for Cameroon vs Tunisia, as well as Ivory Coast vs Senegal and Colombia vs Chile.

As part of ESPNFC.com's 'Rebuilding England' series, our panel discussed whether the international game's perennial underachiever is in decline and how improvement can be achieved.

Meanwhile, Gab explained some of the seeding scenarios that could be affected by the upcoming qualifiers.

There was also reaction to Wayne Rooney's comments about his Manchester United past, present and future.

Ahead of his latest power rankings, Shaka heard suggestions for inclusion from his colleagues.

Paul Mariner had his say on diving, as Tuesday's conversation continued.

Diving was also on the #FCextratime agenda, as was the difference between Barcelona and Bayern, and Man United's prospects this season.

A podcast of the show is available here and more videos can be viewed on the ESPNFC.com video index page.
