Champions League: Messi scores hat trick as Barcelona blanks PSV Eindhoven

If the World Cup had given the impression that Lionel Messi was slipping down soccer’s pecking order, the Argentine star made it clear he remains at the top of his game. Messi scored a record eighth Champions League hat trick on Tuesday in Barcelona’s 4-0 win over PSV Eindhoven as Europe’s top club competition got underway. Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe, the teenage star widely viewed as the man capable of dethroning Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in a near future as the best player in the world, endured a frustrating night in a 3-2 loss with Paris Saint-Germain at Liverpool. The World

The ATP has banned Lahyani, 52, from October’s China Open and Shanghai Masters after an internal review. “Lahyani’s actions in the match were deemed to have compromised the

Tango in Paris

From my parents’ old house, high above the White Cliffs of Dover, you could look out across the English Channel on sunny days and see the outline of the French coast. I used to imagine that somewhere beyond the horizon there was a French version of me, a bon viveur enjoying better weather, better clothes, better friends: chic, debonair, nonchalant, hanging out in cafés and brasseries, quaffing aperitifs, maybe Champagne, living with elan and panache; living une vie en rose. This alternate life could be glimpsed on family motoring holidays in the Loire Valley or the Dordogne, or cycling through

Alouettes QB Johnny Manziel to replace struggling starter Pipkin

The quarterback carousel in Montreal has spun again, and Johnny Manziel is once again the next man up. The former Cleveland Brown took the majority of Montreal’s first-team snaps at practice on Monday and will take over from quarterback Antonio Pipkin when the Alouettes (3-9-0) visit the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday. Pipkin, 23, started the last four games for Montreal but threw four interceptions in a 32-14 loss to the visiting B.C. Lions last Friday. “I think Johnny deserves the opportunity to play this week based on last week,” Alouettes head coach Mike Sherman said after practice. Sherman also

POV podcast: Stephanie Labbe plays the long game

Stephanie Labbe approaches soccer like Bobby Fischer approached  chess. She’s thinking many, many moves ahead. So — when the  goal is unprecedented, like getting Canada atop the World Cup podium, Labbe takes an unprecedented approach. She joined a men’s team in the Premiere Development league so she could face an exceptional proving ground between the pipes. No one questioned her skill: she stoned the best they could throw at her. But the league played the gender card: men only. Labbe was ready for that. Plan B? Learn. Adjust. Move on. In the latest podcast, Steph and her old bud Anastasia Bucsis talk about Labbe’s next step,

Ryder Cup 2018: Rory McIlroy and Tony Finau set to renew rivalries 14 years on

The then 15-year old, curly-haired McIlroy was a member of the six boys and six girls European team who travelled to Ohio in September 2004 to tackle a USA Team boasting Finau, who turned 15 two days after the event.

Rory McIlroy helped steer Europe to an 8 ½ to 3 ½ triumph and while he and Finau did not face each other, he is keen to do the same to Finau and his Ryder Cup team-mates later this month in France.

And this is following the Salt Lake City-based Finau earlier this week being handed the very last USA team wildcard pick.

“It doesn’t seem like it was 14 years ago I played in the Junior Ryder Cup there in Ohio,” said McIlroy. 

“The organisers then took us up to Detroit for the Ryder Cup that next week at Oakland Hills and I remember walking inside the ropes for one of the practice rounds with the European Team.

“So, just to think what can happen in such a short space of time as I am now heading into my sixth Ryder Cup since then.  

“I’ve been fortunate to play three winning Ryder Cup’s and looking forward very much to being on a fourth winning European Team.”

For Finau, it will be a first after being handed the final USA wildcard pick.

And both McIlroy and Finau now find themselves members of what now will also be a very unique staging of the 2018 Ryder Cup.For the first time in 32 years, and since the inauguration of the World Rankings in April 1986, the leading top-10 players on the rankings will be teeing-up later this month at Le National.

If you look at the rankings of all 24 players then at this stage, the 2018 Ryder Cup will boast 14 of the top-15, 17 of the top-20 and 20 of the top-25.

The only player outside of the top-25 heading to Versailles will be the present world No 34, Ian Poulter.

And McIlroy has confirmed that for a first time in his pro-career he will begin a new season in Hawaii at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, starting January 3 2019.

The event is a winner’s only tournament with McIlroy qualifying in capturing this year’s Arnold Palmer Invitational.
