    Cristiano Ronaldo made history again on Thursday night then declared he has closed the book forever on his relationship with Manchester United. The 37-year-old started the week by mutually agreeing to terminate his contract at Old Trafford but he ended it by becoming the first man to score at five World Cups, his 65th minute penalty helping Portugal beat Ghana 3-2 at Stadium 974. Ronaldo, who already has an offer to move to Saudi Arabia side Al Hilal, was named FIFA's Player of the Match, which meant he had to attend the ensuing press conference. He stayed in the room for 132 seconds and answered one question but, for the first time, publicly addressed his situation.

    Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo made history Thursday by becoming the first male player to score during five World Cup games. Ronaldo earned Portugal's first point in a penalty kick an hour into its match against Ghana. The forward was in the penalty area of Ghana's goal when a referee called a penalty on Ghana's Mohammed Salisu, who responded by confronting the referee and motioning for him to open his eyes. Portugal would go on to beat Ghana 3-2. Lionel Messi, Miroslav Klose, Pele, and Uwe Seeler had all scored across four World Cup games. Portuguese player Eusebio holds Portugal's record for total goals scored in World Cup games with nine, while this game makes Ronaldo's eighth. Female players Marta and Christine Sinclair scored their respective goals in their fifth World Cup games in 2019.

    Getty Tom Brady expressed his confidence that Devin White can turn around his play on the field. Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Devin White took his lumps amid sub-par play of late, but quarterback Tom Brady recently showed the beleaguered starter a vote of confidence. “It’s gonna take all of us. We got you,” Brady tweeted to White on Thursday, November 3. It's gonna take all of us. We got you @DevinWhite__40 #GoBucs https://t.co/cHcRXMApOh — Tom Brady (@TomBrady) November 3, 2022 White faced criticism after noticeably missing key plays against the Baltimore Ravens on October 28. His play notably hadn’t impressed of late either going into the game amid no sacks since Week 2 of the season.

    With a signature midrange jumper, Chicago Bulls forward DeMar DeRozan on Friday joined an elite group of NBA players in the first quarter against the Spurs in San Antonio. The basket marked DeRozan’s 20,000th-career point across 14 seasons. He finished with 33 points, but the Bulls lost 129-124 after overcoming a 14-point first-half deficit despite missing All-Star Zach LaVine. The performance still placed DeRozan among only 49 other players who have reached the milestone, including Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain and LeBron James. The moment was met with an immediate timeout from Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who joined the AT&T Center crowd in congratulating their former star. “I never really looked at records or milestones,” DeRozan said after Wednesday’s game against the Indiana Pacers. “I just go out there and compete. When it happens, you’re aware of it being a reality. Especially just being a basketball junkie that I am — 20,000 doesn’t happen too often. To be in that position, that’s definitely crazy.” He could have reached the mark Wednesday at the United Center with a 24-point performance — a...

    ERLING HAALAND has joined a select group of 14 to score a perfect ten-out-of-ten on L'Equipe's ruthlessly tough player match ratings. The unstoppable Manchester City striker earned the recognition by bagging his third hat-trick of the season in Sunday's 6-3 demolition of Manchester United. 1Erling Haaland and Manchester City team-mate Phil Foden both got match balls after both bagged hat-tricks against Manchester UnitedCredit: EPA City's Phil Foden also scored three on a remarkable day for the Citizens but it was the big Norwegian who stole the show again. Haaland's two predatory goals towards the end of the first-half effectively killed off their big rivals in the hotly-anticipated derby, And either side of sealing his third home hat-trick on the spin with a brilliant snap-shot, he brilliantly set-up Foden for his second and third goals. The 22-year-old's all-round display was so good it persuaded the stingy critics at 76-year-old French daily sport newspaper L'Equipe to dish out one of their rare perfect ratings.

    JIMMY FLOYD HASSELBAINK reckons Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can hit 20 goals this season despite Chelsea’s early season struggles.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin enjoyed the biggest moment of his career inside T-Mobile Arena in 2018, when he skated the Stanley Cup around the rink after defeating the Vegas Golden Knights in the Final. On Wednesday night, he enjoyed another milestone. With two goals during a 4-3 overtime loss to the Knights, it marked the ninth time in Ovechkin’s career he scored 50 goals, tying Mike Bossy and Wayne Gretzky for most in NHL history. “Obviously, it’s pretty good company,” said Ovechkin, the oldest player in NHL history to score 50 in a season. “Obviously lots of great memories, locker room, everything, hotel. It’s gonna stay here forever. Yeah, pretty fun moments.” Moments including the one after his second goal Wednesday, when a boisterous group of Capitals fans broke out with chants of “OVIE! OVIE!

    MANCHESTER UNITED were playing their first Premier League game at Elland Road in nearly two decades. And after signs this set of players may not be up for the fight, it was a huge test of character for the men in red. 1Jandon Sancho had perhaps his best game in a United shirt, and in a hostile atmosphereCredit: EPA The good news is, some surprising names stepped up when there had been doubts over their calibre, but this crazy game also had some hair-brained moments of silliness.

    MANCHESTER UNITED earned a hard-fought point at Chelsea in their first Premier League game after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's sacking. Jadon Sancho scored his first Premier League goal for the Red Devils after he pounced on Jorginho's error. 1Jadon Sancho robbed Jorginho of possession before scoring his first Premier League goalCredit: Getty But Aaron Wan-Bissaka had a howler of his own as he gifted the Blues a penalty and an equaliser.

    ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI is certainly going the right way to win the Ballon d'Or. The Poland international scored a 75th minute winner for Bayern Munich to hand the Bavarians three points in the Bundesliga against Freiburg. 2Robert Lewandowski slides in Bayern's winner against FreiburgCredit: EPA Incredibly, 33-year-old Lewandowski's strike was his 23rd of another impressive campaign. Better still, it was his 60th this calendar year - with 10 games still left to play. The last player to achieve that many goals was Cristiano Ronaldo in 2014. His 61 strikes followed an incredible 69 he achieved in 2013. But both are still a long way off Lionel Messi - who once managed 91 goals in a calendar year in 2012.

    Convince Joe Willock to stay and there may just be hope for Steve Bruce at Newcastle.  Then again, that feeling of scoring the winner in front of an adoring Gallowgate End might be the only bargaining chip the Magpies need.  5Willock scored the only goal of the game to give Newcastle victoryCredit: AP 5The Arsenal man has been sensational since joining Newcastle on loanCredit: AP The Arsenal loanee’s header just before half-time made it six goal in six games, and the Toon Army have a new hero.  They may never love their manager - it took just 12 minutes for the Geordie faithful to express that with a rendition of ‘Steve Bruce, he’s got a big fat head’.  But get Willock to sign on the dotted line and there really is cause for hope.  Bruce likes to talk about metaphorically hammering owner Mike Ashley’s door down to bolster the transfer kitty.  Well, park the sun lounger this summer and move heaven and earth to bring him to Tyneside permanently.  If it costs £30million, so be it - it was only...

    ERLING HAALAND bagged yet another brace in the Champions League on Tuesday night - blitzing a record in the process. Borussia Dortmund secured a 5-4 aggregate win over Sevilla in the last-16 with four of their goals scored by the Norwegian. 3 A pair in the first leg was followed by a simple finish back in Germany and a controversial second that sealed the tie. A strong run and finish by the 20-year-old was cancelled out by VAR awarding a penalty for an earlier infringement on him. Haaland missed from the spot but Bono had stepped off his line too early, leading to a retake that was scored before the striker yelled in his rival's face. Sevilla players were unhappy with the celebration, with the Borussia star shouting 'unlucky' at the goalkeeper and earning a booking for his troubles. The moment put Haaland on 20 Champions League goals in only his 14th match - a remarkably quicker pace than any of his attacking predecessors. Harry Kane previously held the record by reaching the number in 24 games. FREE BETS: GET...
    With a well-deserved reputation as a miracle technician, Diego Simeone he is not an easy coach to play for. Many forwards, Álvaro Morata, Jackson Martínez, Kevin Gameiro, to name three, have had their careers conditioned while playing in the Atlético de Madrid. The first thing is the defense for Simeone, even for the strikers, but they must also do their job, to score. But the simple style of the Argentine coach and the demands for maximum effort from his players have also lit up some extraordinary transformations. Take the case of Marcos Llorente, who came in as a defensive specialist who hadn’t fit into the Real Madrid and has ended up becoming one of the top scoring midfielders in Spain, from the hand of Simeone. Llorente has scored nine times with the Athletic this season, including two goals in the last two games to help hold the Spanish leader with just one defeat in their league campaign. Their draw saved one point from a 1-1 draw at Levante on Wednesday. On Saturday, your team will host...

    LIONEL MESSI scored his second brace of 2021 in Barcelona's rout of Granada, which he bagged with a sensational under-the-wall free-kick. The six-time Ballon d'Or winner scored Barca's second and third goals in their 4-0 trouncing of the Nasrids.

The Argentine well and truly deceived the Grenada wall, and everyone watching the match, by setting his sights on the top right-hand corner. And they were left absolutely bamboozled by his brilliance when he calmly side-footed the ball under their feet and into the far corner. What made Messi's free-kick even better is that a Granada player anticipated him attempting the cheeky feat and laid down behind the wall. Twitter was abuzz after seeing Messi's latest strike, with one footy fan saying: "He's back, washed Messi they said."...
    Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry became the second oldest player in NBA history to score 60 points in a game after exploding for a career-high 62 in a 137-122 win over the Portland Trailblazers on Sunday night.  Facing criticism after a slow start to the new season, Curry generated most of his team's points in a statement victory, making eight three-pointers and slithering through the Trailblazers' defense at the Chase Center.  The 32-year-old surpassed his previous career high of 54 points and joined NBA legend Pete Maravich as the only NBA players in the last 50 years to score more than 30 points in both halves, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.  The former league MVP is also the second oldest player to cross the 60-point plateau, sitting only behind the late Kobe Bryant, who at 37 years old, scored 60 points in his last NBA game.  62 PTS18-31 FG8-16 3PT ????
