    GARY LINEKER has claimed Trent Alexander-Arnold or Kieran Trippier should start England's last 16 clash against Senegal. The ex-Three Lions striker believes Gareth Southgate cannot "take the risk" of key man Kyle Walker getting injured. 2Gary Lineker believes Trent Alexander-Arnold or Kieran Trippier should start against SenegalCredit: Getty 2Lineker reckons Kyle Walker should be rested for a potential quarter-final meeting with FranceCredit: Getty Lineker believes Manchester City ace Walker, 32, should be wrapped up in cotton wool for the Senegal meeting. A win against the Africa Cup of Nations champs would send England into the quarter-finals, where current holders France are the opponents if they beat Poland. And Lineker believes Walker is the only player who is a match for French superstar Kylian Mbappe. Mbappe, 23, is the joint top scorer at the World Cup, netting three times in three games. For that reason, according to the BBC presenter, Southgate should not risk starting Walker against Senegal in case of injury. Lineker declared: "Kyle Walker should not be in England's team to play Senegal." Explaining his reasoning, Lineker...

    ENGLAND have the only player "on the planet" that can stop France superstar Kylian Mbappe in the 2022 World Cup, claim Rio Ferdinand and Gary Neville. The Three Lions and Les Bleus both punched their ticket to the Last 16 where they will face Senegal and Poland respectively. 2England could face France star Kylian Mbappe in the World Cup quarter-finalsCredit: Getty If Gareth Southgate and Didier Deschamps' teams make it out of the Round of 16 they will face each other in a crunch quarter-final clash.

    Current Iran coach Carlos Queiroz was hired by US Soccer in 1998 to develop a plan of action to turn the USA into World Cup contenders by the 2010 tournament.  Over 24 years ago, 'Project 2010' was unveiled. It was a grand 12-year, $50 million plan was designed to have the United States win the world’s most coveted trophy, unsurprisingly, by 2010. The USA launched the plan just before the 1998 World Cup and took its lofty ambitions to France - where it fell flat on its face, dead last.  US Soccer commissioned Queiroz to take a no-holds barred look at American soccer to address what needed to be improved to bring it into the next century.  And quite clearly, a lot needed addressing. Queiroz's analysis developed into a 113-page report.  Speaking ahead of the project's supposed deadline in 2010, US Soccer president Sunil Gulati said: 'He [Queiroz] gave us an independent look at the landscape here with a third-party point of view.  Current Iran coach Carlos Queiroz was hired by US Soccer in 1998 to develop a plan of action...

    Morgan Freeman has incurred harsh criticism after hosting the opening ceremony of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar amid concerns over the nation's human rights record. The tournament, whose opening ceremony yesterday featured a rousing monologue from Freeman, has been plagued with controversy over the Gulf state's treatment of foreign workers, LGBT+ rights and social restrictions. Several stars such as Dua Lipa, Shakira and Rod Stewart turned down offers from tournament organizers to perform at the opening ceremony in the at Al-Bayt Stadium in Doha on that basis. Yet Freeman accepted despite already having a net worth estimated to be in the hundreds of millions - and in doing so drew ire from furious commentators who accused him of hypocrisy. The internationally acclaimed actor has been an outspoken civil rights activist in the US, having lent his voice to campaigns supporting gay marriage and launched charities to promote equality in early childhood education, among others.  This led scores of social media users to question why Freeman - who once portrayed anti-apartheid activist and champion of equality Nelson Mandela - agreed to...

Photo by Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports A tremendous story during the postseason, the Philadelphia Phillies came up short against the Houston Astros in the World Series. If you’re looking for one of the biggest reasons why the Philadelphia Phillies fell in six games to the Houston Astros in the 2022 World Series, look no further than the lack of offense produced by the Philadelphia lineup. Houston pitchers held the Phillies to a combined .163/.259/.321 slash line. Following a 7-0 win in Game 3, the Phillies scored just three runs over the final three games of the Fall Classic. Two of those three runs over the final three games came off the bat of Kyle Schwarber, thanks to a pair of solo homers. Philadelphia out-homered the Astros 8-5 overall in the Series, but it was one of the few areas where the Phillies were better at the plate than their American League opponents.3 Philadelphia Phillies...

    Who should Chicago Cubs fans root for in the World Series and why? As a fan of Major League Baseball, one obviously wants their home team to win the World Series every year.

    Shakhtar Donetsk's CEO Sergei Palkin wants Ukraine to replace Iran at the World Cup amid reports Tehran has supplied Russia with drones to aid their invasion. The Ukrainian capital city Kyiv was stuck by Iranian-made 'kamikaze' drones deployed by Russian forces last week. President Volodymyr Zelensky claimed seven such drones had been shot down, while the United States said Iran has deployed military experts in Russian-occupied Crimea. Footage emerged of police officers shooting down what local authorities described as an Iranian-made Shahed-136 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) over Kyiv. Iran has pleaded its 'neutrality' in the conflict but Ukraine has already downgraded diplomatic ties with Tehran and now the chief of one of its leading football teams has demanded further punishment. The Iranians open their World Cup campaign in Qatar against England on November 21 and also face the United States and Wales in Group B. In a statement released on Shakhtar's Twitter feed, Palkin wrote: 'While the Iranian leadership will have fun watching their national team play at the World Cup, Ukrainians will be killed by Iranian drones and Iranian...

    (Photo by Alex Bierens de Haan/Getty Images ) Five fighters not in the UFC who need to be. The Mecca. The cream-of-the-crop. The crème de la crème. However you choose to describe it, the UFC has long solidified itself as the premier mixed martial arts organization in the world. Generally speaking, this is hard to argue by just about every metric. However, despite its reputation as the best organization, the world’s best fighters don’t always fight in the UFC. There is a vast array of UFC-level fighters who are currently signed to the world’s other leading MMA promotions, including ONE Championship, Bellator, KSW, Rizin, LFA, Ares, and Cage Warriors (just to name a few). As refreshing as it may be to see other organizations develop and showcase elite talent, most of the dream “what-if” matchups that fans like to fantasize about are being envisioned taking place under the UFC banner. Fans support and appreciate fighters that can make a living from fighting outside of the UFC. However, it doesn’t stop fans from wanting these same athletes to eventually make the move over...
    Gliding through Doha’s dazzlingly futuristic cityscape on Monday morning, in a limousine provided by the Qatari government, David Beckham might have allowed himself a self-satisfied smile. Having secured an astonishing deal, reportedly worth £150 million over ten years, to act as a global ambassador for the wealthiest state on earth, he was there as the ‘face’ of the World Cup, which opens here — amid huge controversy — on November 20. Soon his wife, Victoria, will join him, lending her presence to a prestigious fashion competition for talented young Arab designers, chaired by her friend Sheikha Al- Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the sister of Qatar’s ruling emir. Members of the Beckham family are also expected to arrive for the football tournament. They will see their father feted like a visiting statesman, his handsome face staring down from billboards across the city. David Beckham sits with Madame Shams Al Qassabi (centre) and her daughter Eman (left) On Monday, however, the former England captain had an appointment with a very different kind of ‘spice girl’: a 60-year-old woman whose...

    Attorney Alan Dershowitz dismissed the New York attorney general’s civil fraud lawsuit against former President Donald Trump Wednesday as “political.” The Harvard Law School professor emeritus also argued those allegedly defrauded were large banks who, if they feel defrauded, can go after Trump on their own. New York AG Letitia James announced a civil suit against the former president and three of his adult children Wednesday morning. James accused the family and others in the Trump organization of inflating the values of the business’s assets dating back years in order to secure favorable loan terms. The state of New York wants to collect $250 million and also ban the former president, as well as Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump from practicing business in their home state. On Newsmax TV’s American Agenda, Dershowitz argued James is fulfilling a campaign promise by going after Trump. He also argued if the lawsuit were legitimate, those who were victims of fraud are capable of suing the Trump family on their own. “The first thing I would do if I were Trump’s...
