England lucky to have Kane, says Hart

England lucky to have Kane, says Hart

Hart felt Kane's secret was his simplicity in front of goal.The striker has made steady progress over the past two seasons for his club, scoring 25 and 29 goals to pick up the golden boot twice in succession. Paper Round's view: We'll assume this "battle" follows a period of quiet self-reflection by Barkley, who's concluded perhaps a salary of £150k per week (his rumoured self-valuation back in the summer months) was a little steep, after all.

England star Harry Kane: 'Being captain will not change how I play'

Kane seemed at ease on Wednesday as he sat alongside Southgate at Tottenham Hotspur's training ground as England finalised preparations for Slovenia . Real Madrid were originally willing to offer €125 million for Kane's services, but as Eduarda Inda noted in Spanish TV program, El Chiringuito , "Real Madrid are asking for Harry Kane for next season, but you know the price and they are 200 million euros", Tottenham's valuation of their striker was much higher.

Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne makes organisational changes after 'ugly' Malaysia issues

It was another terrific battle for positions in the midfield, with very strong work from Sergio Perez and his Force India team to turn a strong start - from ninth on the grid up to sixth in an early charge - into a sixth-placed finish. Bottas was only fifth, nearly seven tenths adrift of Hamilton. "We are intervening now with organisational changes". Vettel told Sky F1: "I went on the outside to pick up a bit of rubber - I think Lance wasn't looking and wanted to do the same". Read More

The Yankees Absolutely Own the Twins in the Postseason

The Yankees Absolutely Own the Twins in the Postseason

Back in the playoffs with another homegrown group, the Twins got a result all too familiar to Minnesota fans - a celebratory Yankee Stadium singalong with Frank Sinatra's " New York , New York". The Twins make it close , but the Yankees pull away late. Girardi pushed all the right buttons in this win. Luis Severino had left quite a mess for Green, with runners on second and third and just one out, but the reliable reliever struck out Byron Buxton and Jason Castro to limit the ... Read More

Christmas loss to Steelers has Ravens ready for rematch

One of these days Ben Roethlisberger and Bryant will connect on a long pass but until that happens, fantasy owners will continue to be frustrated by Bryant's weekly output. If that decision was taken to appease critics who say sitting out the anthem is disrespectful to military veterans and the country as a whole, it was not entirely successful - sections of fans booed both teams .

0-4 Giants find new way to lose as season slips away

Case in point was Sunday against the New York Giants when Winston threw for 332 yards and three touchdowns without a turnover and brought his team from behind twice in the fourth quarter to beat Eli Manning 25-23. But Eli Manning caught fire in the fourth quarter, with back-to-back touchdown passes to Odell Beckham Jr. followed by a go-ahead bomb to Sterling Shepard . Read More

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook has 'nearly a complete' ACL tear

Minnesota set the tone early on defense , with Danielle Hunter sacking Matthew Stafford , the NFL's highest paid player, on the first play from scrimmage. Stefon Diggs had five catches for 98 yards, while Thielen turned his five catches into 59 yards. McKinnon's best year to this point came in 2016. He did leave (again) with an ankle injury, so that is definitely something we want to look at going forward. Read More

Knowing they would have to win the last two holes to win the Presidents Cup on Saturday before the singles matches on Sunday, Hoffman miraculously chipped in for birdie.

5th ODI: Australia make 242 for 9 in 50 overs

India's bowlers were superb at the death, with Jasprit Bumrah impressively making the 45th over a wicket maiden. The Australian goes for review, but the tracker shows that ball will hit the middle stump. "We are going to have a bat". "We will have a good look at the one day competition back home and hopefully a few guys can jump out of the pack and score big runs and bowl really well as well". Read More

Los Angeles Rams' odd uniform combination, explained

His yards-per-game has improved dramatically from a year ago, jumping from 55.3 to 80.3. As I wrote in the opening, the Rams and Cowboys are old playoff foes. Lee has been nursing a hamstring injury and hasn't practiced all week - not a good sign. "I think we'll get better in some of the areas that we need to, but we'll find out". Read More

Hazard must exploit God-given talent, says Chelsea's Conte

The Belgian has made just three substitute appearances in the league since returning from an ankle fracture sustained on global duty in June but impressed in the Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid in midweek.

Spurs stroll as Kane shows why he is one of Europe's hottest

After a goalscoring drought in August, Kane has scored nine goals in five games in September, with a brace in each of Tottenham's two away league victories and their Champions League opener against Borussia Dortmund.

Tiger Unsure If He Will Play Again

He scribbled notes on the paper in front of him, talked in hushed tones with the other assistants and leaned over Stricker's shoulder like a kid trying to get a peek at the answer key. "He spent more time on that than he did homework at Stanford, there's no question about that". Price, who does not have as much strength in depth, left out Canadian Adam Hadwin and Indian Anirban Lahiri. Read More

Justin Thomas wins the FedEx Cup

Justin Thomas wins the FedEx Cup

The eagle came at the par-5 sixth hole where Casey sank a 11-foot putt. There it remained until the 17th, where Casey superbly holed out from 40ft for a birdie. I'm a little speechless. "That's quite a long stint without him winning because he is such a good calibre player". "It's just huge and it's awesome just because I feel like I played so well this year", said Thomas .

Australia win toss vs India and bat first in 3rd ODI

Smith's men will be keen to break their win drought, mindful that an ODI series whitewash away to South Africa previous year preceded the 2-1 test series defeat against the same opponents on home soil. "Rohit and Rahane were very good and then Hardik Pandya , only he can do what he does when he bats like that. I want to get better". "Rather seeing it as challenge, I see it as opportunity to do something nice for team", Pandya said in the post-match press conference. Read More

Premier League Preview: West Ham vs

Premier League Preview: West Ham vs

After good recent performances, this was another step back for Bilic and his team. A win over their arch-rivals could build upon this and kickstart their season. Bilic though, is set to welcome captain Mark Noble back to action with the English midfielder recovering from a short-term knee injury. At the back, James Collins is out with an ankle problem, meaning one fewer shackle on Harry Kane . Read More

Glennon, Not Trubisky, Should be Bears' Quarterback

Tampa Bay almost registered the team's second shutout win in the past 13 seasons, but Glennon finally got Chicago on the board by hitting Deonte Thompson on a 14-yard touchdown pass with 1:43 remaining.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 2-0 without playing their best

The Vikings' quarterback situation will continue to provide intrigue after weekend reports indicated Teddy Bridgewater could be ready to play when he's eligible to be activated from the physically unable to perform list in four weeks. According to Zimmer, there were "some good things and some bad things" from Keenum. We just have to stress that to ourselves if we want to keep improving. Read More

Vettel to blame for crash - Verstappen

Ricciardo insisted having to manage the gearbox did not play a major role in the outcome, and he was disappointed that Red Bull's early weekend form did not continue into the race . Kvyat meanwhile brought out the second safety vehicle intervention after he crashed his Toro Rosso. Hamilton had a ringside seat for the carnage, which brought out the safety auto, and calmly tip-toed his way into a lead he would not relinquish. Read More
