I'm not a guy to call national managers and tell them what to do. I said "where are you?" The 17-year-old was sold to Dortmund on transfer deadline day in a deal worth £8 million and Guardiola admits he was frustrated to see him go. (more...)

Details of Eagles' Ronald Darby's gruesome injury vs. Redskins Details of Eagles' Ronald Darby's gruesome injury vs. Redskins
- September 11, 2017

On initial look, it appears to be a broken ankle or a severe sprain at the minimum. The cart had to come pick Darby up off the field while medical personnel stabilized the joint. Nonetheless, he was clearly the top talent the Eagles had at cornerback, as the position remained a major question mark coming into the season. The injury also likely means more playing time for Rasul Douglas, a tall and physical but raw rookie who was taken in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. (more...)

A dominant scrum in the 66th minute gave fly-half Jantjies the simplest of chances to put South Africa up 23-20 but Foley responded immediately with a long-range effort to set up a tense last 10 minutes.
