Hart to captain England against Lithuania

Hart to captain England against Lithuania

New England boss Gareth Southgate has said he will consider not naming a permanent captain and rather work on a squad-by-squad basis, with Dier admitting leading his country is something he is aiming to achieve. Just last month, Southgate visited Pennyhill Park, the base of the English rugby team ahead of their Six Nations clash with Wales. England fans were widely criticised for their actions in Dortmund as a mindless, drunken few sang anti-German war songs on the streets hours after ... Read More

Rory McIlroy out despite walkover win

Rory McIlroy out despite walkover win

Win, and never mind simply the prospect of moving on to the weekend play in this mega-bucks event, Fisher would nearly certainly guarantee himself a last-minute invitation to the Masters next month. The biggest decision he faced Friday was not whether to go for the green over the water on the par-4 13th. Two-time major victor Jordan Spieth had also been in danger of an early exit after losing his opening match, but the Texas native kept his hopes alive with a 4&2 win over Yuta Ikeda. Read More

Radulov scores in OT, Canadiens beat Lightning 2-1

Radulov scores in OT, Canadiens beat Lightning 2-1

His 52 points in 73 games is pretty much what was expected of him before the season began but most probably thought that he would have scored more goals rather than record more assists. We'll see if he can play (Saturday)". Smith almost had another goal four minutes later, short-handed 19 seconds into a Lightning power play. Dallas would officially make it 2-1 just minutes later, when Spezza corralled a bouncing biscuit inside the offensive zone and ripped a laserbeam top corner. Read More

Ryu wins ANA Inspiration in playoff after Thompson's penalty

Thompson was assessed another two-stroke penalty for signing an incorrect scorecard. "It's unfortunate that happened", Thompson said. I just regrouped myself. If you don't catch a violation on the day it happens, it didn't happen. The game is littered with professionals calling penalties on themselves and even at amateur level there is nothing worse for a player to have been found to have intentionally flouted the rules.
