England beat Australia by 38 runs to lead ODI series 2-0


Buttler's previous experience of leading England came in a hard-fought series victory in Bangladesh in October 2016 - Morgan was absent because of his security concerns over that tour. "I had a long discussion with Thorpey [Graham Thorpe] after I got out and just said it was probably my favorite innings as far as how my tempo was throughout the innings", ESPNcricinfo quoted Jason Roy , as saying.

Belgium vs Panama Live Streaming India, IST time: When & where to watch


The first-half was a tiresome affair, with Belgium's star-studded side failing to click. Interestingly, each of the Belgium's last 11 goals in the World Cup have come after half-time, suggesting a lethargy at the start of the game. The Panamanians scored just nine in 10 qualifiers, and they arrived in Russian Federation after scoring just one goal in their last five matches. Belgium's "Golden Generation" struggled to break down the wall of Panama defenders and got increasingly ... Read More »

Senegal punishes Poland for mistakes in 2-1 win

One moment he would be running at the Poland defence from the left, the next he would be cutting inside through the middle and arriving in completely unexpected spaces. Niang let it bounce twice, knocked the ball past the goalkeeper then sprinted to catch up as the ball bounced three more times , and he tapped it into the open net from about 8 yards. Read More »

Egypt will fight hard to qualify - Mohamed Elneny


But the men in red are now on the cusp of making their first knockout stage of a World Cup in post-Soviet history. Salah, the Premier League's top scorer and player of the season, is recovering from injuring his shoulder while playing in last month's Champions League final. Read More »

It looks like a transfer is now on the verge of completion as the Metro are citing a report from SportBild that claims Arsenal will formally unveil Leno as our latest new signing at some point on Tuesday.

Sanchez red spoils Pekerman's plans as Japan stun Colombia


Juan Quintero's clever low free kick in the 39th minute brought Colombia's equaliser but Yuya Osako leapt above his marker to head a corner into the net for the 73rd-minute victor. Shinji Okazaki also was named on the bench after a calf complaint but Shinji Kagawa was handed a start. In Jose Perkerman, Colombia has an experienced tactician who is no stranger to managing at the World Cup having let his native Argentina in 2010 and Colombia to their best ever finish in 2014.

Colombia face Japan, Poland to meet Senegal — FIFA WC


He also said the 4-1 thrashing of Japan in their final pool game four years ago, which made them group winners, counts for nothing now. "We're focusing only on Japan and then we'll think about what comes next". And if I simply take that fact into account, we won't win. Egypt , Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia have all lost, some conceding very late goals in stoppage time to the disappointment of their millions of fans. Read More »

Manchester United set price for Chelsea to sign Anthony Martial


If they are to complete the signing, the Express says it could allow Arsenal to swoop on Steven N'Zonzi, who would thus return to the Premier League . He knows what is demanded by Jose Mourinho and he has previously thrived within the United manager's system. That, and reported rifts with the first-team squad despite winning the FA Cup, mean it is nearly impossible to see Conte in charge come the start of the new Premier League season. Read More »

What could the Cavs trade for Kawhi Leonard?


He spent several months away from the team while rehabbing, which led to public barbs from Spurs coach Gregg Popovich about Leonard's absence - an unusual move for the Spurs. Would Kawhi Leonard be a good fit on the Nuggets? Cleveland would risk losing Leonard as a free agent in 2019 if he doesn't sign an extension. Cleveland's location might be the best thing they have going for them in any potential trade talks. Read More »

'Rashford can set world alight'


The pair are part of what is set to be the third-youngest squad to represent England at a World Cup , with Young the oldest member of Gareth Southgate's 23-man party. And Young stressed with regard to that: "I still see myself as an attacker, especially with the way that we play, with the full-backs or wing-backs high up". Read More »

Switzerland hold Brazil in another upset at Russian Federation 2018


Switzerland had to beat Northern Ireland to qualify for the World Cup, winning narrowly 1-0. Mexican referee Cesar Ramos dismissed complaints that Zuber had shoved defender Miranda before getting to the corner from Xherdan Shaqiri. "There was a lot of pressure and it was translated into too much speed in our last move and that means you are not precise", Tite said. "I feel what they've got up front is fantastic". Read More »

Saudi Arabia's official team plane catches fire after take off

A statement from the Saudi Football Federation reassured everyone about the team's safety. The players could be seen leaving the plane - a Russian Airlines Airbus A319-100 - shortly after landing. Saudi Arabia have landed safely in Rostov-on-Don after experiencing a technical failure in one of their plane's engines mid-flight. They next take on Uruguay after a chastening 5-0 loss to hosts Russian Federation last Thursday - their second heaviest defeat at the World Cup. Read More »

Mexican World Cup Fans Celebrated So Hard They Might've Caused An Earthquake


Lozano's goal set off such a commotion that seismic detectors in Mexico City registered a false quake, which the geological institute said may have been generated by "massive jumps" across the city. Juan Carlos Osorio's side had other ideas, however, holding their own against the favourites' fearsome but slowing midfield and finding space at the back and seeking to end 33 years without a win against Germany .

Gamble on England's system brings World Cup reward for bold Gareth Southgate


Nearly two million people lost their lives during the six-month siege of the city and, with relations between Russian Federation and the United Kingdom now strained, Southgate said England's trip offers a chance of perspective. "If we win, then it gives us momentum but if we don't win, then we don't think we're not going through". Hosts and visitors were largely on their best behaviour, but two drunk England supporters were taken off a train on their way to Volgograd and charged with minor ... Read More »

Why are the World Cup favourites floundering?


A German fan gestures prior to their 2018 World Cup Group F match against Mexico during a public viewing event at the "Fanmeile" area in front of Berlin's landmark Brandenburg Gate on June 17, 2018 . More might be made of Sane's absence now, especially as Germany failed to find the back of the net. More reliance was on speed and movement on the counterattack. Read More »

Cavaliers among teams to call Spurs about Kawhi Leonard


There are rumors that Kawhi wants to head to Los Angeles and play for the Lakers , but that is unlikely to happen since head coach Gregg Popovich has a personal rule to never trade a star to a team in his own conference. Then, they reportedly tried to trade for Hayward in the summer of 2016, offering Eric Bledsoe and a lottery pick. One intriguing team for Leonard is the Cleveland Cavaliers , who reportedly have made calls to San Antonio about landing their star. Read More »

Belgium fans hopes high at the 2018 FIFA World Cup


The boys from Brussels face Panama , Central America's World Cup debutants, in Sochi. The passion exuded from Panama's national anthem sent social media into overdrive. I believe that we will now lock ourselves in a cupboard and cry for a while. Gomez didn't completely dismiss Panama's chances of a surprise result against the Belgians, saying "anything can happen in football", but admitted it wouldn't be normal. Read More »

Kane, Sterling start up front for England


He praised the impact of Pep Guardiola and the rest of the backroom staff, who he says have worked closely with him to develop his game. Aside from the talent-stacked side of Belgium , "only" Panama and Tunisia could prevent England from improving upon their finish at the 2014 World Cup . Read More »

Croatia Coach Explains Nikola Kalinic's Sending Home from World Cup


Croatia faces Argentina this Thursday and according to Federation Internationale de Football Association rules, no replacement for Kalinic will be allowed meaning Dalic will have 22 players at his disposal under the end of the tournament. He did the same thing against Brazil and England, saying he wasn't ready, and for yesterday's training session too. Kalinic secured a big-money move to AC Milan from Fiorentina last summer, but the 30-year-old scored just six times. Read More »

Steven Gerrard believes England have 'fighting chance' at World Cup


According to Sky Sports , Jesse said: "Southgate has come in with the mentality to play with freedom, play without fear, and you will enjoy your time more". It gives us a huge lift to see the fans in the stadium. Teams have tried to rough him up and that hasn't anxious him, either. "You know he has this nice side to him, but at the same time he has a side that you don't want to cross". Read More »

Roger Federer claims 98th career title with victory in Stuttgart


The Swiss, who owns 20 Grand Slam singles titles, needed to fight all the way against Australian threat Kyrgios, playing his first event in two months due to injury. "I wanted to have a few matches on my return and I played four matches and won them all which is very good". The seventh-seeded Canadian has not won a title since the 2016 Brisbane International.

Zach Johnson Angered By 'Pure Carnage' On The US Open Course


Open was played previous year at Erin Hills. "Maybe I get to hide behind closed doors", he said. In 2015 the USGA went to Chambers Bay, a raw, untried course with bad conditions and poor visibility for spectators. I don't think I could've dreamed of this, going back-to-back". In the last 22 groups on Saturday, no one even matched par-70 on the treacherous layout. Read More »

Marcos Rojo in Argentina starting XI vs Iceland in World Cup opener


After Iceland qualified for Euro 2016, he became the first and the only Iceland goalkeeper to represent his nation at a major tournament. The opposition is going to give us more respect than they did in the past, though. Messi had a final chance to redeem his team with the final kick of the game, but his free kick from 25 yards failed to clear a solid Iceland defensive wall. Read More »

Fernando Alonso wins Le Mans 24 with Toyota


The presence of a sporting icon at Le Mans guaranteed the race, Toyota and the WEC far greater global attention than had it been six lesser-known drivers competing in what was effectively a private Toyota battle. Their work on reliability over the winter has paid off with no sign of the mechanical failures that had plagued the team since 2012. Instead, he handed over to Nakajima, who then passed fellow-Japanese Kamui Kobayashi in the #7 Toyota for the lead. Read More »

Mexico's Rafa Marquez becomes third man to play at five World Cups


It was one of those quick-strike artists, Lozano, who took advantage of the room Germany gave him to run on the deciding goal . Our team certainly has experience dealing with losses, and the next match will be decisive for us. Werner, the golden boot victor when Germany lifted the Confederations Cup a year ago, is still a work in progress and it showed in Moscow . Steven Zuber crushed home a header after pushing his marker Miranda, out of the way. Read More »
