As for Firmino, wow!". Former Liverpool and Roma defender John Arne Riise on Twitter: "The work-rate and intensity of the Liverpool team is insane!.

Mohamad Salah Stands Tall, but Liverpool Cracks Door for Roma

Today 07:03 GMT

Of all the teams Mohamed Salah has claimed as his victims this season, of all the defenses Liverpool’s irrepressible striker has shredded, A.S. Roma had a head start.

Salah has scored 41 goals in his first season at Liverpool, a ruthlessness that will surely make him the Premier League’s leading scorer this season, just as it persuaded his peers to vote him England’s player of the year. When they came face to face with Salah in the first leg of a Champions League semifinal at Anfield on Tuesday night, they would know all of his tics and his tells, his flaws and his foibles.

John Schneider built the Seahawks a Super Bowl roster. He’s starting again with the 2018 draft.

Today 07:03 GMT

John Schneider’s second-floor office has a stunning view of Lake Washington, which rests alongside three plush, green practice fields on the Seattle Seahawks’ 200,000-square foot waterfront facility.

Players who were once undervalued bargains on rookie contracts soon had to be compensated with high-paying extensions, and the grind of postseason play wore down and aged a roster once loaded with young talent — the Seahawks’ 53-man Super Bowl roster was the youngest to ever win a championship.

LeBron James Is a One-Man Show. That Is the Problem.

Today 07:03 GMT

Kyle Korver was explaining one of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ core philosophies this season: The job of everyone on the team not named LeBron James is to put LeBron James in position to do the things LeBron James does as the best basketball player in the planet.

The issue, or at least one of them, is that James has been playing to his usual all-universe standards against the Pacers — and Cleveland is still in trouble.

That majestic Salah spring just keeps rolling along for relentless Liverpool

Today 07:03 GMT

Ten minutes before half-time on a wild night of Champions League football Mohamed Salah did perhaps the best thing so far of the many wonderful things contained in his dreamy first Liverpool season.

Encouraged by early save from Salah, but given little chance by the same player twice before half-time 6. Former Tottenham player was solid in the air, adventurous on the ground when going forward 6 . Greece international was caught out of position when Firmino slipped Salah through for second goal 6. Booked when surprised by Mané’s pace, not a success at stopping Salah, a night to forget 5. Alessandro Florenzi The Italian was, like Kolarov, too easily pushed back by Liverpool’s wide players 5. Not given time to play his usual game, the midfielder struggled to handle Liverpool’s pace 6 . Early shot saved but the Netherlands international possibly at fault for second Liverpool goal 6. The 20-year-old Turk was anonymous until being taken off at half-time for Schick 5. Always willing to receive the ball, even under pressure.

Jets and Giants Share Something Else: High Stakes at the Draft

Today 07:03 GMT

The mystery will end Thursday night, when the Giants and the Jets choose players, most likely one right after the other, who will share a media market, a stadium and, perhaps, a position.

The Cleveland Browns, unfazed by a systemic inability to identify and develop a quarterback that has condemned them to the longest playoff drought in the N.F.L., will choose one with the first pick of the draft on Thursday night.

Mo Salah leads Liverpool onslaught to leave Roma needing new miracle

Today 07:03 GMT

Of all the mesmerising nights Liverpool have experienced under Anfield’s floodlights in European competition, where does this one stand?

Roma promptly scored twice and, somehow, Liverpool managed to combine scoring five times with a nervous climax to an extraordinary night. Ultimately, though, it was another triumphant night for Klopp’s men and they will go into the return leg in a position of considerable strength.

Champions League: Mohamed Salah leads Liverpool dismantling of Roma

Today 07:03 GMT

Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino stole the show as Liverpool beat Roma 5-2 in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal.

Liverpool 5 -2 Roma (Salah 36', 45', Mane 56', Firmino 61', 69' - Dzeko 81, Perotti pen 85') Anfield, Liverpool. Even for a team that overcame a three-goal deficit against Barcelona in the last round, this one looks to be a bridge too far. Stunning individual displays from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, who bagged a brace and a pair of assists each, and a shambolic defensive effort from the visitors conspired to give the Premier League side a huge advantage going in to next Wednesday's second leg, despite a late Roma fightback.

The rise of Russia’s neo-Nazi football hooligans

Today 05:11 GMT

The day that Denis Nikitin, a Russian neo-Nazi who claims he once kept a framed photograph of Joseph Goebbels in his bedroom, took part in his first street fight, his mother made him a packed lunch.

One Russian hooligan who took part in the fighting later told a French news agency: “The English always say they are the main football hooligans; we went to show that the English are girls.” Some Russian politicians claimed their country had been disproportionately singled out by the media and authorities (two English fans were jailed for their part in the violence).
