TORONTO - Major League Soccer will crown a first-time champion when Toronto FC and Seattle Sounders clash in the MLS Cup final at frosty BMO Field. SAO PAULO - The final day of the Brazilian league season takes place a week later than planned due to the Chapecoense air tragedy.
Briton to fight Klitschko at Wembley in April By Alan Baldwin. The Texan had fought for the world title once before, losing to Deontay Wilder for the WBC belt in 2015. Klitschko wants his belts back, may the best man win, said Joshua after his second defence. Khalid 'Kal' Yafai earlier took the WBA super-flyweight world title after outpointing Panama's Luis Concepcion 120-108 119-108 117-110. Concepcion had already been stripped of the belt after failing to make the weight for the voluntary defence on Friday.
Substitute Mariano Diaz scored his first league goal for the club to pull them level before Sergio Ramos sealed victory in the 93rd minute. The players work hard and give so much and they are always convinced things will go their way in the end. When you are behind it's not easy but we kept calm until the end and the substitutes contributed a lot too. You can work on it and try to stop him but it's very difficult.
Britain's Anthony Joshua retained his IBF world heavyweight boxing title and continued his perfect run with a clinical third round stoppage of American Eric Molina in Manchester on Saturday. After two probing opening rounds, the 2012 Olympic champion landed a powerful right to send his outclassed opponent crashing to the canvas for his 18th win in 18 professional fights. The Texan had fought for the world title once before, losing to Deontay Wilder for the WBC crown in 2015.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has labelled it unfair that teams he believes are inferior to his side are higher in the Premier League table. I find it unfair, the Portuguese told Sky Sports on Friday. If you could transform these draws into victories we would be very close to the top. I see teams in the Premier League that are not comparable to us in terms of the quality of their game and they have many more points than us.
Having fought their way to 400 in the first innings, the England camp had probably assumed that they had the upper hand in the fourth Test going ahead. India wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel had no hesitation saying more than the track, it was the difference in the quality of spinners that has helped India claw back into the game. More than the surface, I think the quality of our bowling is far better, said Parthiv on Friday.
Yet if that all seemed too good to be true, City fans now know it really was. In the subsequent 15 matches in all competitions, Guardiola's team have won just four times. One of those was a stellar night against Barcelona but they have too often flattered to deceive. It left City fourth in the table, four points behind leaders Arsenal, but they could be seven points off the pace should Chelsea beat West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
Ramos, the scorer of Real's 90th-minute equaliser last week against Barcelona, headed in Toni Kroos' corner in the 93rd minute to complete a stunning turnaround after former Real forward Joselu threatened to unravel the unbeaten run. Real youngster Mariano Diaz scored his first league goal to level in the 88th and preserve the unbeaten run but yet again Ramos had the final say. We had a lot of chances and we knew that as soon as we got ahead it would open up.
The keeper was beaten, however, when Sergej Milinkovic-Savic rose high to drill in his header from an Anderson cross in the 40th minute. Lazio struck again on the stroke of halftime with Marco Parolo sliding in at the far post from yet another perfect delivery from Brazil international Anderson. The visitors should have scored several more in the second half as Sampdoria offered little resistance. Lazio held on to move up to 31 points with Sampdoria in ninth on 22.
Iain Hume's brace helped Atletico de Kolkata (ATK) prevail over visitor Mumbai City FC 3-2 in the first leg of the ISL semifinal, which was played here at the Rabindra Sarobar Stadium on Saturday. Mumbai City FC suffered a setback as its talismanic forward, Diego Forlan, was given marching orders late in the second half. The Mumbai defence managed to ward off the threat but the resultant corner brought the break the host was looking for.
LONDON, Dec 10 (Reuters) - Arsenal shoved Chelsea off the top of the table but Leicester City's Jamie Vardy, with a dazzling hat-trick, was the man of the moment on Saturday as the struggling Premier League champions blew aside Manchester City 4-2. Substitute Alex Iwobi then ran through to give Arsenal the two-goal victory they needed to top the table. Swansea's goals came courtesy of a Gylfi Sigurdsson penalty in the 50th and a brace from Fernando Llorente.
India outplayed the opposition in every department of the game. For England, it was not an option but a forced decision from an aggressive India. India captain Harjeet Singh stood out as much for his ball distribution and penetrating passes as for his ability to draw defenders and open up gaps in defence. Harmanpreet and Varun, along with Dipsan Tirkey, hardly allowed any English ball to reach the Indian circle.
