    ENGLAND star Luke Shaw told Jack Grealish that Manchester City players stand out while on national team duty. Grealish, 27, was speaking to the media ahead of the Three Lions' huge last-16 tie versus Senegal and he revealed what Shaw had told him about his club teammates. 2Jack Grealish and his Man City teammates stand out in England's campCredit: Getty 2Luke Shaw has started all three England games at the World CupCredit: Getty The attacking midfielder opened up on a video of Phil Foden doing kick-ups that has gone viral online, Grealish said: "Me and Phil do that all the time. "Luke Shaw said to me ‘when I come away with England you can tell who the City lads are as you always have a ball.’ "It’s true. Me, Phil, even Kyle [Walker] are always wanting a ball, whether it be back home, at the camp, or here. "At Aston Villa players would be sitting there on their phones, then at City you’re sitting there and balls are flying across the changing room." READ MORE ON THE WORLD CUPQATAR LATEST Gabriel...
    WE know taking on the USA will be a different proposition to Iran. They have players who can cause England plenty of problems on their day. 3The USA's Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic can be a real menace when he's on his game but England should have enough answers to land their second winCredit: AP 3Weston McKennie, seen sorting out a mane problem for team-mate Tyler Adams, has the flair to match his colourful hair for the USACredit: AP Christian Pulisic may not have been a huge success at Chelsea but there are times when he can turn it on. He’s been a bit unlucky at Stamford Bridge. He was signed under Maurizio Sarri — but never played for him because he was loaned straight back to Dortmund. Then, when he moved, he had a new manager in Frank Lampard, then it was Thomas Tuchel, who he had at Dortmund. But they never seemed to click at Chelsea — and now he’s got Graham Potter.

    In early May before a series against the Chicago Cubs, Tony La Russa referred to the White Sox as being in “survival mode.” “We’re four under, got a chance to win two in a row, but there’s no script for the season,” La Russa said. “That’s probably the most entertaining part of it. You can’t say what’s going to happen. You have to go out there and make things happen.” If there was a script for the 2022 season, no one would’ve believed it. From beginning to end it has been a series of unforced errors by players, management and La Russa. They always were one hot streak away from living up to expectations, never showing the urgency to make it happen. Heavy favorites to win the American League Central, the Sox remained in survival mode through August, when La Russa left the team to deal with a heart-related issue. After a brief surge under acting manager Miguel Cairo, they reverted to form over the last week, getting swept by the Cleveland Guardians to fall out of contention. With the...

Mandatory Credit: Mark Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports It may be early in Green Bay Packers training camp, but these three players have been standing out. The entire NFL is in the midst of training camp, as all 32 teams prepare for the upcoming season. For the Green Bay Packers, they look to solidify their status as being one of the top teams in the NFC, all the while dealing with an exodus of talent. Last year did not end the way Green Bay had envisioned. They had the top record in the league and clinched a first-round bye in the playoffs. Seemingly, they looked like the favorites to make it to Super Bowl 56. Instead, they were limited to 10 points by the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round and were eliminated. While it is early in training camp fans are going to hear buzz about players who are...
    CHELSEA could sell SIX flops in order to fund their transfer spending spree.

And they could fund their summer business through the departure of wantaway players and those who are surplus to requirements. These six players made just 90 appearances COMBINED last season, so could be the ones axed to make way for more suitable stars - a clearout which would get rid of £700,000-a-week in wages.

    Getty Xavi is making plans for next season. Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez is already shaping his first-team squad ahead of the 2022-23 season and has been deciding which players are surplus to requirements at the Camp Nou. The coach has already informed president Joan Laporta of three players who do not feature in his plans for the future, as reported by Juan Ignacio Lechuga at El Desmarque. Striker Martin Braithwaite, midfielder Riqui Puig and on-loan winger Adama Traore will all be allowed to leave in the summer. Braithwaite has missed a large chunk of the season with a knee injury but remains on the sidelines despite being fully fit again. The Denmark international has only made four La Liga appearances all season and faces stiff competition for minutes with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele, Ferran Torres, Memphis Depay, and Luuk de Jong around, Puig has also spent most of the season on the bench and has slipped behind exciting youngsters such as Gavi and Nico Gonzalez in the pecking order.

Mandatory Credit: Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports The Houston Astros need to address a few things in free agency. Why not find a way to bring back a few guys who were recently on the roster? As the Houston Astros navigate free agency and try to find a way back to the World Series, there are still some big needs that must be addressed. The MLB lockout is complicating matters, but Houston still has a talented roster and could be an ideal destination for players who want to compete for a championship sooner rather than later. Luckily for Houston, the Astros are familiar with some talented guys who might be seeking a way to get a World Series ring. It’s entirely possible that Houston could have some opportunities to bring back some familiar faces next year....
    Malik Monk, Los Angeles Lakers (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images) Sitting at 12-12, the Los Angeles Lakers need to make certain adjustments to their current lineup to let 3 of their unsung heroes shine on the court.  While the Lakers are always in the conversation for noteworthy trade talks, the reality is that L.A. has already picked up several players in recent years that make most trades untenable. It’s true that the 12-12 Lakers need a jolt if they plan on making playoffs this season, especially if they’re going to challenge at the top in a conference currently headed by two 20-4 teams. But the Lakers do have depth on their roster, and if they play the right players in the right moments, could see a payoff for the playoffs. Here are three Lakers players who could lead a Lakers turnaround as unsung heroes of the 2021-22 team.Lakers: 3 unsung heroes who will help turnaround after early-season struggles3.

    Jorge Soler, Atlanta Braves. (Mandatory Credit: Scott Taetsch-USA TODAY Sports) These three Atlanta Braves could still return to the ballclub even after a lengthy lockout. While the lockout continues, it may not be the worst thing in the world for the Atlanta Braves in their World Series title defense. Even after winning their first league championship in 26 years, Atlanta does not have the deepest pockets of any team in baseball. Not to say the Braves are paupers either, but there are financial ramifications to being owned by a corporation instead of a human being. Fortunately, the lockout may slow things down enough to allow these three huge contributors from last year to return.

    Loss No. 8 for the Chicago Bears ended with such a “Who even cares?” feeling Sunday. Trailing the Arizona Cardinals by 11 points in the closing seconds, quarterback Andy Dalton found a meaningless 11-yard completion over the middle to running back Khalil Herbert, raced his offense to the line of scrimmage and spiked the ball a half-second after time ran out, 5 yards shy of midfield. With the sky grayer than an elephant’s hide and a cold mist seemingly stuck inside Soldier Field, only a few thousand spectators were still in their seats as time expired on the 33-22 loss. And, well, that was that. Just another predictable but demoralizing defeat for a downcast team that can’t seem to stop losing. The Bears are losing football games. They’re losing energy. They’re losing focus. Long ago, they lost the belief of much of their fan base. And it’s likely only a matter of time now before they lose their head coach, much of his staff and quite possibly their general manager too. Yet almost as soon...

    08/09/2021 at 8:55 PM CEST betfair The departure of Leo Messi has left any Spanish football fan touched, but mental recovery is near with the early start of LaLiga. We analyze the five footballers who can be key and can surprise this season. Fran García, a bullet for Rayo Vallecano The left back was one of the best Rayo Vallecano players last season and, after the promotion, the franjirrojo club exercised its purchase option on 50% of Fran García’s rights. Now points to undisputed headline in First division and it will be necessary to take into account its speed, its verticality and its danger above. Diego Lainez, Mexican Olympic talent The Mexican winger comes from playing the Olympic Games and being one of the most important men. He injured his ankle in the match for the bronze and it is unknown how he will reach the start of the league. Despite this, he is a player in whom there are many hopes placed. He arrived at Betis in 2019 and this must be the season...
    CDC to recommend vaccinated people wear masks indoors as number of cases rise: Latest COVID-19 updates College Student Who Mistook Suspects Car for Her Uber Was Stabbed 120 Times: Pathologist If you are staying up through the wee hours of the night to watch the Tokyo Olympics, you are bonkers. And I love it! Men’s golf kicks off Wednesday (6:30 p.m.-3 a.m., Golf Channel) with just a 60-player field at the Kasumigaseki Country Club. Collin Morikawa, coming off a win at The Open enters this event as the +750 favorite to win the gold at BetMGM, followed by fellow American teammates Xander Schauffele (+900) and Justin Thomas (+1100). Rounding out the top five in the betting odds are Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama (+1200) and Norway’s Viktor Hovland (+1200). Men’s golf was re-introduced to the Olympics in 2016 after a 112-year hiatus but that was in Rio de Janeiro. So, we have no course history, a small 60-player field, and 72-hole stroke play with no cut. The information we can gather is that British player Justin Rose won the 2016 Olympic...
    Osaka, 23, announced last week that she would not be taking media questions at Roland-Garros because she thinks journalists 'doubt' her and she didn't want to 'subject' herself to their tough questions More tennis stars are reversing their criticism of Naomi Osaka after she pulled out of the French Open on Monday and revealed she suffers depression, following a stand-off with the Grand Slams over her refusal to take part in a press conference that has triggered a mental health debate.  Osaka, 23, announced last week that she would not be taking media questions at Roland-Garros because she thinks journalists 'doubt' her and she didn't want to subject herself to their tough questions.  She was fined $15,000 and threatened with expulsion from the remaining Grand Slams, as well as being accused of trying to have her cake and eat it too. Osaka was the highest paid female athlete in history in 2019, earning $37.4million.  Veteran players spoke out afterwards to say while they sympathized with anyone suffering mental health problems, speaking to the press was part of the job and without...
    San Jose wasnt alerted that feds once detained rail yard killer for terrorist books, hateful writings, DA says State Department calls for release of US journalist detained in Myanmar Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad © Provided by Dot Esports With April showers come May flowers, and for the best teams around the world, so too comes the Mid-Season Invitational, the first international League of Legends tournament of the year. For most of the professional League players around the world, however, April falters lead to no competition in May. Instead, they’re faced with the prospect of a long offseason, a time to reset and prepare for the summer season and the World Championship. For the Dignitas players, despite being a surprising playoff participant in the 2021 LCS Spring Split, the offseason was a time of reflection and preparation for the upcoming Summer Split. After finishing the 2020 Summer Split in eighth place and only barely squeaking into the expanded playoff picture, Dignitas came into 2021 with a clear goal in mind: build around jungler Dardoch....
    Shaq's "lower the rims" argument is flawed for many reasons, the most compelling of which is because it's demeaning to women's basketball players. REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/AP Photo/Mike Carlson Shaq suggested that lowering the rim to allow players to dunk could increase interest in the WNBA. He gave the unsolicited advice to Candace Parker, a two-time WNBA MVP who can dunk on 10-foot hoops. Shaq's argument is flawed for many reasons, most notably because it's demeaning to women's players. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Shaq thought he had a great idea to help elevate the women's game. He thought wrong. Shaq. Getty/E! Entertainment During Tuesday night's rendition of "NBA on TNT," the NBA Hall of Famer mansplained to two-time WNBA MVP  Candace Parker that the perfect way to make the NBA and the WNBA "equal" would be to "lower the rim so y'all can dunk like we dunk." "That'll give y'all more 'oomph' than you already have," Shaq insisted. Parker quickly shut down the 7-foot-1, 324-pounder's misguided theory, responding with a curt "no" as Shaq...
    New York Times and Wall Street Journal: Cuomo aides rewrote nursing home report from state health officials to hide higher death toll Former Cuomo aide says he is textbook abuser and details alleged harassment Although the league-wide stolen base rate improved slightly last season, it was still the lowest mark (aside from 2019) since any of us started watching baseball. Teams continue to favor a three-true-outcome approach, which makes the few players who run the bases aggressively valued members of any roto team. The simple steals approach this year is to get them early. In fact, smart managers will use two-three of their initial five picks on players who combine fleet feet with strong plate skills. But even after securing a steals foundation, there remains a need to chip away at the category throughout the draft. With that in mind, here is a handful of speedy players who can be found after pick-150. Andres Gimenez (CLE, 2B/3B/SS, ADP 181) In a full-time role, Gimenez would blow past the 20-steal plateau. After all, he swiped eight bases in 118 at-bats...
    The Lakers are in a thick soup after Anthony Davis injured his Achilles in the game against the Nuggets. Since then, the Lakers have lost three of their four games and will also stand against a scary Utah Jazz. Other than this, AD’s untimely injury has also raised question marks on his inclusion in the All-star reserves. Now, if the star forward stays out for three more weeks, the Lakers might try to sign the likes of Blake Griffin (Pistons) or a low-cost Mo Bamba (Magic). If not, Kyle Kuzma or Montrezl Harrell will have to step up. But what about the All-stars? The three most probable All-star replacements for Lakers’ Anthony Davis This isn’t the first time AD might pull out of the All-stars. Back in 2015, the voting had selected him as a starter, but he pulled out because of a shoulder injury. To replace him, the league selected Mavericks veteran Dirk Nowitzki, who then played his 13th All-star game. That year, players like Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, and Dwyane Wade also missed the break because of injuries....
    Two former Steelers are among the notable players who could get their first championship ring in Super Bowl 55.   Antonio Brown, who ranks second all time in receiving yards for the Steelers, plays for Tampa Bay. Le’Veon Bell, who ranks fourth all time in rushing yards for Pittsburgh, plays for Kansas City.   Those two are among the intriguing players that could win their first Super Bowl ring this weekend.

    Things might have to exceedingly well for the San Jose Sharks to make the NHL playoffs this season. There can’t be significant injuries to star players like there were last season, they’ll need bounce-back seasons from both of their goalies and they’ll have get off to a good start despite playing 14 of their first 18 games on the road. That said, in the newly realigned West Division, the Sharks can still surprise some people. The Colorado Avalanche, St. Louis Blues and Vegas Golden Knights are the division’s heavyweights, but the fourth and last playoff spot appears to be up for grabs between the Sharks, Anaheim Ducks, Arizona Coyotes, Los Angeles Kings and Minnesota Wild. The Sharks finished 29th out of 31 teams last season, and will not be getting the benefit of the doubt by many prognosticators this year. But here are five players who can make the Sharks better than expected this season. 1. Erik Karlsson: In the 109 regular season games Karlsson has played for the Sharks, one prolonged stretch stands out. In...
    The best videogames of 2020 U.S. stock futures pause after Wall Street scores a round of record highs 7 players who can swing the 2020-21 NBA season Every NBA season begins with a certain number of unknowns. Each year, a handful of these intangibles have a chance to alter the league's competitive landscape, depending on which way they break. Here are seven players who can help tilt the balance of power in 2020-21.Kevin Durant, Nets © Provided by theScore Sarah Stier / Getty Images At his absolute best, Durant reached levels of dominance only LeBron James has surpassed over the last decade. In 10 playoff games before his first of two right leg injuries during the 2019 postseason, Durant averaged 35.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, five assists, 1.2 steals, and a block on 52-43-91 shooting while logging nearly 40 minutes per game. If the 32-year-old returns from a ruptured Achilles looking like the old KD, the Nets are an immediate contender. How Durant and Kyrie Irving mesh on the court (and off) is important, as is how new coach Steve...

    The NBA is a place where numerous basketball players have stepped in and wowed the league with their talents. Over the years, we have seen legendary players assert their dominance in the league over a long period of time. But, athletes like LeBron James stand out for their ability to perform at the top level for several years without dropping form. But, how long can LeBron sustain his place as the face of the league? LeBron James has been the best in the league ever since his rookie entry in 2003. The Ohio native is one of the greatest to grace the NBA. With three rings and four league MVP awards, LeBron has never been shy of constant media attention throughout his glittering 17-year-career. As the King now looks to earn a championship with the Los Angeles Lakers, how far can he really go? LeBron is one of the fittest athletes there is.

    Batwoman finds new lead in Javicia Leslie Stock futures open higher after Nasdaq clinches new record Players, caddies who test positive can return to play with certain restrictions In what the PGA Tour is calling a clarification regarding its health and safety plan, players or caddies who continue to test positive for COVID-19 can now return to competition under certain guidelines. © Provided by Golf Channel Last week, the Tour announced a move to a “test-based model” for asymptomatic cases, which means that anyone who tests positive would be allowed to return competition if they returned two negative tests that were administered at least 24 hours apart. Wednesday’s clarification addressed a player or caddie who continues to test positive after 10 days since the first symptoms appeared and hasn’t had a fever for 72 hours.

    MLB and the players association agreed that bulk test results for COVID-19 will be released to the public, but teams cannot announce individual players who test positive, The Post has learned. All 30 clubs were doing intake testing Wednesday and Thursday before the majority open spring training 2.0 on Friday. It will be the first mass collection of not just players, but all those who MLB designates as Tier 1 (also on-field personnel such as coaches, managers and medical personnel who interact daily with the players) and Tier 2 (others deemed essential personnel, including select front-office members). The union has always defended player privacy when it comes to health issues not incurred while at the workplace. So the agreement with MLB was to have a positive COVID-19 test fall under the category in the collective bargaining agreement covering other medical conditions in which the team could announce that a player is unavailable and how long he might be unavailable, but not give a specific reason for the absence. But when a player is either put on the injured list...
    DANNY MURPHY has slammed the traditional guard of honour - saying Kevin De Bruyne "clapping players who can't lace his boots" is a travesty The former Liverpool star has slammed the showing of respect, calling it a "load of nonsense". 2Murphy can't believe someone like De Bruyne will have to give Liverpool a guard of honour 2Liverpool won their first-ever Premier League last week The Reds clinched their first-ever Premier League title last Thursday after City slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Chelsea.

    By Fernando Martínez | Jun 22 2020Suárez has been one of the most productive MLB players | Quinn Harris / . The 2020 MLB season (if it happens) is likely to span 60 games and against that backdrop unusual names appear for the MVP competition. The short time left for this competition will demonstrate how important a player can be to your franchise. Here are the three surprise players who could be competitors for the National League MVP this season. 1. Josh Hader – Milwaukee Brewers Josh Hader Can Be Vital In Brewers’ Aspirations | Rob Carr / . A short season will make every game important, where the bullpen will play a key role. In that case, Josh Hader is an unbeatable closer who should be considered for both Cy Young and MVP. 2.

    Jerami Grant is a vital piece in Denver | Harry How / . There is little more than a month left for the return of the NBA and in the panorama of the Western Conference at the moment there are several teams that are emerging as candidates for the championship. In addition to the great stars of each organization, year after year, supporting figures tend to emerge that end up being decisive in the playoff race. Below we will present a list of the players who could surprise and give an important hand in the aspirations of their teams in the decisive stage of the campaign. Valanciunas is the current starting center for the Grizzlies | Sean Gardner / . The Lithuanian is Memphis’ biggest figure in the paint and has plenty of NBA experience to propel the young payroll. The offensive burden will be on Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr. and Brandon Clarke, but Valanciunas will have the job of establishing himself as the team leader in various aspects of the game.
