Walter Mazzarri: Troy Deeney deserves an England call-up

England manager Sam Allardyce will announce his squad later this week for the World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia. Walter Mazzarri's side have recorded crushing back-to-back victories since the September worldwide break, beating West Ham 4-2 at the London Stadium before dispatching Manchester United 3-1 last weekend.

LeBron supports Kaepernick but will stand during anthem

James's sentiments mirror Stephen Curry, who told CNBC almost two weeks ago that he applauds and respects Kaepernick's stance, but that he'll "most likely" stand during the national anthem before games. LeBron James is continuing to speak out in an effort to bring police and the Black Lives Matter movement closer. "He didn't ask anyone else to join him".

Bruins sign Marchand for 8 years, $49 million

He was a member of Boston's Stanley Cup-winning team in 2011, with 11 goals in the playoffs, the second-most on the team. In 2014-15, the 5-foot-9, 181-pound Marchand played in 77 games, posting 42 points (24 goals, 18 assists) and 95 penalty minutes.



New York Giants Lose Shane Vereen To Season-Ending Injury

At the moment, Vereen is the team's leading rusher with 147 yards and his 4.7 yards-per-carry average is one of the better averages in the NFL. I like Vereen as an RB2 in PPR and a mid-level flex play in standard scoring. He had eight receptions in the first three games. The Giants didn't play Jennings because they were concerned about his ability to play on passing down with an injury thumb.


Pouille beats Thiem to win Moselle Open and 1st title

Pouille beats Thiem to win Moselle Open and 1st title

Neither player gave their opponent room for manoeuvre on their own serve until third seed Pouille applied the pressure in game 10, though he failed to convert three set points that came his way. The 23-year-old Austrian unleashed another crackling forehand to break for the second time in a row and snatch the second set. All in all, he was the better player and had more chances in my service games.



Canada beats Russia 5-3, advances to World Cup finals

And it was No. 87 who set the tone early by scoring to give Canada a 1-0 lead at 7:40 of the first, sweeping in alone after a forecheck poke off Dmitri Kulikov's stick and then restored order by setting up Brad Marchand off another forecheck sweep off Andrei Markov's stick to tie the game 2-2 with 2:24 left in the second and only 1:12 after Evgeny Kuznetsov had given Russian Federation a shocking lead.
