    SEVILLE, Spain (AP) — Rafael Borré was used to playing in big games with River Plate in the Copa Libertadores. Now he hopes his experience in South America will help Eintracht Frankfurt succeed in the Europa League. The 26-year-old Colombian forward will be playing in his first European final when Frankfurt faces Rangers on Wednesday in Seville. He played twice in the final of the Copa Libertadores, South America’s most important club competition, winning the title with River against Argentine rival Boca Juniors in 2018 and finishing runner-up the following year against Brazilian club Flamengo. “I think every Copa Libertadores final gives you more experience and more confidence for these types of matches,” Borré said on Tuesday. Borré was wanted by several clubs in South America and Europe before joining Frankfurt from River at the beginning of the season, and it didn’t take long for him to become a regular starter with the German club. He was key in the team’s run to the final, scoring once in the team’s 3-2 win at Barcelona in the second leg...

    Football is climbing the league table of popular US sports and has now overtaken ice hockey in fourth place and is homing in on baseball in third. The bumper £2billion deal the Premier League struck with NBC after a battle among American broadcasters this month reflects the growing popularity of the sport. The English top flight doubled its money when the channel renewed its contract and committed to show 380 games for six seasons on its cable and digital channels. The most-watched Premier League match stateside was Manchester United's 2-0 win over Manchester City in March 2020, when 1.76million saw the game live on American television And an analysis by Sportsmail shows that Association Football - known as soccer in the US - has now overhauled ice hockey and sits behind baseball, basketball and American football in the top five US sports. 'Today soccer is the fourth sport in the US in terms of popularity. Football is now just ahead of ice hockey. It follows a tremendous growth in popularity of football,' said Pierre Maes, a sports media strategist. 'This...

    The NFL has not said whether it plans to honor America or the 13 service members who recently lost their lives in Afghanistan during the Thursday night season opener between the Cowboys and the Buccaneers, according to the Association of Mature Citizens (AMAC). Given the proximity of the NFL’s opening night to not only the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks but also the terrorist attack that killed 13 Americans as they worked to evacuate thousands from the airport in Kabul, AMAC Newsline asked the NFL multiple times whether they planned to honor the fallen at some point during the broadcast. As of Wednesday, the NFL had not responded to that question. Last season, the NFL began devoting an increasing amount of its pre-game ceremonies to celebrating social justice causes. The league removed any doubt about whether it would allow players to continue the anthem protests begun by former 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016, when Commissioner Roger Goodell apologized for “not listening” to players and encouraged all of their players to “peacefully protest.” We, the NFL, condemn racism and...

    (CNN)As the votes trickled in, millions of Americans held their breath. Arguably the most consequential election in recent US history took five days to be called in favor of the Democratic candidate Joe Biden and, for many people, the wait was unbearable.While the ballots were being tallied in states from Nevada to Pennsylvania, the baseball player Bruce Maxwell was grateful for a distraction; he was in training but still paying very close attention to the news.For Maxwell, the outcome of the 2020 Presidential election was personal and, for him, those anxious days would come to represent a conclusion of intertwining narrative arcs that were both devastating and inspiring.Growing up in Alabama, baseball has been the story of Maxwell's life; his dream was fulfilled when he arrived in Major League Baseball as a catcher for the Oakland A's.

    Colorado Rockies outfielder Ian Desmond announced Monday that he will be opting out of the league this year in a lengthy Instagram post that references George Floyd and decries racism in the MLB and his struggles as a mixed-race American. “The image of Derek Chauvin’s knee on the neck of George Floyd, the gruesome murder of a Black man in the streets at the hands of a police officer, broke my coping mechanism,” Desmond posted via Instagram on Monday. “Suppressing my feelings became impossible.” “In clubhouses we’ve got racist, sexist, homophobic jokes or flat-out problems,” the 11-season player continued. “We’ve got cheating. We’ve got a minority issue from the top down. One African American GM. Two African American managers. Less than 8% Black players. No Black majority team owners.” “If baseball is America’s pastime, maybe it’s never been a more fitting one than now,” the outfielder said. “The golden rules of baseball–don’t have fun, don’t pimp home runs, don’t play with character. Those are white rules.” “If we didn’t force Black Americans into white America’s box think how much more...
