Astana 4-3 Celtic (agg 4-8)

Today 04:16 GMT

Astana had restored some belief but their enthusiasm was blunted when Sinclair collected on Celtic's left, drove at the defence and curled a sumptuous shot past Eric.

Stanimir Stoilov's side restored some pride and can console themselves with the knowledge they will be in the Europa League group stage, the draw for which takes place on Friday.

Meet the Virginia teen crowned world champion of spreadsheets

Today 04:16 GMT

Dumoulin took the certification exam for Excel last school year and earned the top score in the state, securing him a trip to the national finals in Orlando, Fla. There, in his first Excel competition ever, he was crowned the national champion.

He had no idea that his savvy with spreadsheets would take him to another field of competition: the Excel World Championship. Dumoulin, a 17-year-old varsity baseball player at Forest Park High in Prince William County, won first prize at the Excel World Championship earlier this month, besting 149 opponents from around the globe and becoming the first American to win in the competition’s 16-year history.

They watched as Kershaw threw a 55-pitch, four-inning simulated game, a final tuneup before he starts a rehabilitation assignment on Saturday with triple-A Oklahoma City.

Eniola Aluko: Kick It Out wants new FA inquiry into England striker's claims

Today 04:15 GMT

The Football Association should conduct "a comprehensive and independent review" into Eniola Aluko's claims against England boss Mark Sampson, says anti-racism campaign group Kick It Out.

"The situation regarding this is now one of utter confusion with claims and counter-claims," Kick it Out said, pointing out Aluko's comments were contrary to what the FA was saying. "Kick It Out urges the FA to undertake a comprehensive and independent review of the processes involved in the original complaint made by Aluko up to the final point of the independent investigation by Katharine Newton QC..

Roger Goodell Said to Be in Line for New Five-Year N.F.L. Contract

Tuesday 22:46 GMT

Commissioner Roger Goodell may get a lot of criticism for the way he has handled issues related to domestic violence, player celebrations and the investigation into so-called Deflategate, but by and large, the N.F.L.’s 32 team owners think he is doing a great job.

The commissioner has used that policy to suspend star players like New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, over an accusation that footballs were tampered with during a playoff game in 2015, and Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, whose former girlfriend accused him of assault.

Tuesday 17:18 GMT

The final 1943 Associated Press college football poll had a lot of familiar names: Notre Dame, Michigan, Washington and Texas were all ranked in the Top 20.

The world of college football was transformed for a few years during World War II, when military training camps fielded their own teams, which competed with college football’s best.

Stars sit as Chargers fall to Saints 13-7 in exhibition at StubHub Center

Tuesday 13:38 GMT

With the star quarterbacks trading their cleats for sneakers and their helmets for ball caps, definitive conclusions — and points — were in short supply, with the Chargers losing 13-7 to New Orleans.

If you were one of the 21,000 or so at StubHub Center on Sunday for the Chargers and Saints preseason game, you still got to see Brees and Rivers go at it — it was just during a taped segment on the jumbotrons.

Compact, cozy StubHub Center could be just the ticket for a unique fan experience and a Chargers rebirth

Tuesday 12:43 GMT

It was nearly the end of the first quarter at StubHub Center when, standing on a concourse overlooking the field, I ran into a fan who had not yet been to his seat.

It’s that shocking, and that close, and with it, the Chargers have finally landed a real shot in their self-proclaimed “Fight for L.A.”. After my first visit to their three-year temporary home Sunday, I can safely claim that, for an NFL viewing experience, StubHub Center kicks the concrete out of the Coliseum.
