But Jedvaj's late victor now means victory at Wembley over England , who they beat 2-1 in the World Cup semifinals, would put them in the final phase. Joe Gomez and Luke Shaw come back into contention on Sunday after missing Thursday's 3-0 friendly win against the United States through injury - a match when Southgate rotated with an eye on this captivating duel.
Anderson was brimming with confidence, being nearly untouchable on serve and made some powerful returns followed by loads of pulsating groundstroke to steamroll the Japanese No. That lone flop came 10 years ago when the Finals were held in Shanghai and Federer is still in with a chance of avoiding that ignominious fate thanks to his comfortable 66-minute dismissal of Thiem.
Rooney received a warm reception before and after coming on for his 120th appearance for England , who prepared for Sunday's crunch Nations League clash with Croatia by beating the US 3-0 thanks to goals from Jesse Lingard , Trent Alexander-Arnold and Wilson.
It will be the first time that the tournament will be held in New Zealand, and will follow on from the enormously successful 2017 edition. She was also rapt for those in New Zealand who had worked on the bid: "I was kind of dreading coming back home and facing all those of people and what they were going to say".
Rondo is expected to miss three to five weeks after the surgery, a source told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski . Rondo declined to talk about the injury as he left the arena with a wrap around his shooting hand. "Just trying to learn to control the game better", Ball said of what he has tried to pick up from Rondo, along with being more vocal. The Lakers opted to play Lance Stephenson as the backup point guard during Rondo's suspension, opening up minutes for Svi Mykhailiuk to play as another ...
While Keane went through a tough spell, he insists he used his experiences as a character-building exercise after overcoming a hairline fracture to the skull earlier this season. I think he's earned it. The only awkward moment of Rooney's 38-minute press conference came when he was asked about the aftermath of his 119th and last appearance to date, against Scotland on 11 November 2016 - when stories emerged of him drinking at the team hotel the following night.
The Sooners (9-1) sit behind Alabama (10-0), Clemson (10-0), Notre Dame (10-0), MI (9-1) and Georgia (9-1). MI has an identical record with its only loss coming to the Notre Dame team sitting one spot ahead of it. The Syracuse football team isn't making the College Football Playoff . Alabama will host The Citadel on Saturday at 11 a.m. CT. That's shortsighted and doesn't take into account that Big 12 contenders Oklahoma and West Virginia and Washington State could easily pick ...
The Chelsea forward, who made his first start in nearly three weeks when playing a little over an hour in Thursday's Europa League win at Bate Borisov, has been fouled on average once every 24 minutes in the Premier League this season, 28 times altogether.
Replays indicated Mitrovic was marginally onside, played on by Andrew Robertson, and Jokanovic was left baffled by the decision to disallow the goal, although he accepted Liverpool outplayed Fulham . "We didn't defend well this counter-attack but this counter-attack shouldn't exist". "It's a completely absurd situation, but we needed to defend".
But a late flashpoint saw Juan Mata take issue with Sterling as he showboated in the final seconds, keeping the ball in the corner and performing stepovers as United players rushed towards him. "I don't like to lose a game and talk about this player who wasn't here". "It's Mourinho's Manchester, and Mourinho is the type of manager who has always played this type of football".
The finale itself was a match always likely to deliver. Despite his tender years, De Minaur has already established himself as one of the pluckiest fighters on the ATP Tour, while he boasts breathtaking speed - much like his mentor and two-time Grand Slam champion Lleyton Hewitt.
Alison Riske will be the second singles player on court tomorrow for the United States of America in the Fed Cup final as her country looks to win back-to-back competitions for the first time since the turn of the millennium. Having defeated Alison Riske in her opening singles rubber, Siniakova prevailed in a tense deciding set against Kenin to win 7-5 5-7 7-5 at the end of a see-saw battle that spanned three hours and 45 minutes.
Drew Brees was 18 of 20 passing for 214 yards and three touchdowns in the first half - including two to receiver Michael Thomas . But another part? The new teammates he'll get to play with. And any doubts about Bryant fitting into the locker room were addressed as well. "You can ask my teammates - my ex-teammates - how I am", Bryant said.
Chelsea named Eden Hazard in his starting line-up for the first time in the Premier League since October 20, while Marco Silva handed a first start to summer arrival Yerry Mina - and the two were involved in the game's first talking point on 22 minutes.
Agent Scott Boras said Wednesday night that he officially opened "Harper's Bazaar", and estimated a contract worth $400 million-$500 million would be needed to land the slugger. The Yankees would have had to find a way to jam Harper into their lineup, possibly by playing him at first base. If somehow Harper is forced to to "settle" for $300 million, it would still make him the second-highest paid player in Major League Baseball history, putting him ahead of Alex Rodriguez and the $275 ...
Liverpool are top of Group C with six points, ahead of Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain, who face off in the group's other game. In this case goal difference will come into play between Liverpool and Red Star Belgrade. "The gaffer, win or lose, he always speaks more the day after the game because that's when he can clear his head and that's where he gets the best out of us, where he can talk from his thoughts", said defender Andy Robertson .
Another incident that didn't cause any punishments involved Hamilton and Williams' Sergey Sirotkin , whom the world champion accused of being "disrespectful" by passing him on an out-lap. Horner said it had been damaged in Mexico by a marshal spraying foam on the auto after he retired from the race. Because he turned the engine off, Vettel did not actually break the wording of the sporting regulations surrounding the weighbridge and, therefore, did not receive a sporting penalty.
He said: "I would love to say that Hendo would have changed the whole (Red Star) game but I'm not really sure about it". We have 27 points, conceded five goals, done a lot of good things. Arsenal before that was an absolutely okay game. "They are professional. I don't defend a corner, I don't press any players". Generally, we are at our best when we play the ball on the deck and get our full-backs forward so that they can hit the byline and get crosses in.
News of Butler's imminent arrival in Philadelphia prompted Las Vegas bookmakers to slice the Sixers odds of challenging for the National Basketball Association championship. As for the present, with by far the best Big 3 in the East, the 76ers are now legitimate threats to make it to the Finals. The fact that the Timberwolves turned down four future first-rounders for Butler from the Houston Rockets and then traded him for no future firsts confused some people.
Many around the league questioned LeBron James' move to the Lakers after the superstar signed a four-year free agent deal with them. Kevin McHale on NBATV commented on the pressure the young Lakers are experiencing playing alongside LeBron for the first time, saying that Chandler may be able to bring the same veteran maturity but alleviate some of the pressure of playing on the same team as LeBron James .
A first-half brace from Milan Pavkov earned Red Star all three points. "We had the first big chance with Daniel, a very big one". However, they are a different proposition at home and after holding Napoli to a 0-0 draw in their group opener, they kept Liverpool at bay after the break.
Bryant took part in a workout with the Saints on Tuesday. After the three-time Pro Bowler's production dipped last season - 69 receptions for 838 yards and six touchdowns - Bryant was released by the Cowboys with two years remaining on a five-year, $70m contract.
The forward landed badly after challenging for a header and needed to be stretched off the pitch after some lengthy treatment, which included him requiring oxygen. A good lad and a good friend. He was stretchered off the pitch, and the scenes were rather distressing for the Arsenal players, particularly the youngsters.
We still have a lot of things to correct, but just really happy to be 7-2. Brady - widely regarded as one of the greatest National Football League players in history - was up against 34-year-old Rodgers, who is a Green Bay career man and won the Super Bowl in 2010.
Running back Alvin Kamara (51 catches) and tight end Benjamin Watson (26 catches) rank second and third on the Saints . But it seems both the Saints and Bryant's camp are optimistic that the teams will work out a deal. The Saints (7-1) are thin in the receiving corps after Ted Ginn Jr . was placed on injured reserve and with newly signed Cameron Meredith struggling over the last few games.
