Egypt-Saudi spat provides backdrop to their World Cup clash

VOLGOGRAD, Russia --- In theory, it's an inconsequential match between two teams already eliminated from the World Cup. In reality, Monday's clash between Egypt and Saudi Arabia is about pride, politics and maybe some score settling too. Fans in the two nations are locked in a public quarrel pitting Saudi Arabia's top sports official --- a maverick and a confidante of the kingdom's powerful crown prince --- against Egypt's biggest soccer club over the fate of millions he poured into the club's coffers during his brief tenure as the club's honorary chairman. Inappropriate comments by the official, Turki Alsheikh, about Egypt's Mohamed Salah, fueled the spat, dragging mil...Keep on reading: Egypt-Saudi spat provides backdrop to their World Cup clash.....»»

By Hamza Hendawi, Associated Press VOLGOGRAD, Russia (AP) — Chechnya leader Ramzan Kadyrov granted honorary citizenship on Friday to striker Mohamed Salah at a banquet held to say goodbye to Egypt's World Cup squad. The players adopted the Russian region's capital, Grozny, as their base for the tournament. The Egyptian Football Association said the banquet was held at Kadyrov's presidential palace in Grozny. It is the third time in two weeks the Chechen leader, a keen sports fan, has shown his admiration for 26-year-old Liverpool striker Salah. Kadyrov attended Egypt's first practice session in Grozny on June 10. After watching for about 30 minutes, he drove to the squad's hotel where Salah, nursing a shoulder injury, was relaxing in his room. The Chechen leader asked Salah to accompany him back to the stadium, where the two posed for photos and greeted the 5,000 fans watching Egypt practice. According to the FA, the Chechen "leadership" sent a large cake to the team hotel on June 15 to mark Salah's 26th birthday.

Charlie Carver on keeping his sexuality a secret from mom

  Openly gay actor Charlie Carver recently told Entertainment Weekly that he noticed being different from twin brother and fellow actor Max at an early age. "I loved putting on dresses and my mom's makeup, and he didn't," Charlie said. "I knew that we were 'individuating.'" The former "Teen Wolf" actor revealed that accepting his sexuality was difficult. His dad's homosexuality was the reason for their parents' divorce. "Right after he came out, I struggled for a year," said Charlie, 29. "I wanted to change schools and come up with this fake persona .... [but] I still loved sports and all of these masculine tropes. I tried really hard."

UE spoils Ricci Rivero’s UP debut in Got Skills Summer Showcase

STANDINGS (Under-25) Letran 7-2 FEU 6-3 LPU 6-3 La Salle 5-3 UE 5-3 NU 5-4 Arellano 4-4 UP 4-4 MLQU 1-8 UA&P 0-9 Ricci Rivero officially wore the UP jersey for the first time on Friday at the Buddha Care Gym in Quezon City and made an immediate impact with 34 points. However, Rivero’s scoring spree wasn’t enough to overcome a balanced UE side which held on for a 69-68 win that sends the Fighting Maroons to back-to-back losses in the 2018 Milcu Sports Basketball presented by Got Skills Adidas Summer Showcase. UAAP Season 80 Mythical Team member Rivero was determined to make a good first impression on his new team and was on the mark from start to finish with a sky-high 63.6 clip from the field. Despite UP’s strong start, however, the Red Warriors just kept coming behind swingman Chris Conner and big man Wilson Bartolome who finished with 14 and 11 points, respectively. Forward Rey Acuno was right there with them and scored 10 points of his own while rookie guard Jojo Antiporda chipped in nine markers. Behind the balanced attack, UE overcame the Fighting Maroons and their newest prized recruit to improve to 5-3. Rivero, who had just transferred from La Salle to State U last month, did not get much help from his teammates as no one else joined him in double-digits. The loss is the second straight and fourth overall in eight games for UP which was also beaten by National U, 64-59, last Tuesday at the Trinity University Gym also in QC. Sweet-shooting forward JP Cauilan was the lone scorer in double-digits with 14 points on top of seven rebounds, but his efforts were more than enough to tow the Bulldogs to 5-4. Fil-Am forward David Murrell shone for the Fighting Maroons in that game with 14 points and six rebounds. Meanwhile, Letran powered its way onto the top spot after outmuscling La Salle, 72-67. Wing player Allen Mina showed the way for the now 7-2 Knights with 17 points while bigs Gerwin Sangalang and Daryl Pascual merged for 22 points, 13 rebounds, and two blocks. Transferee guard Jordan Bartlett was the lone bright spot for the Green Archers with 24 points. La Salle was coming off a 71-56 domination of Manuel L. Quezon University three days ago. They now stand at 5-3.

Switzerland, Serbia coaches don t want to talk about Kosovo

By Mike Corder, Associated Press KALININGRAD, Russia (AP) — The coaches of Serbia and Switzerland only want to talk about football, not about an entrenched political dispute casting a shadow over their teams' World Cup showdown in Russia. Tensions have been building in Serbia before the Group E match Friday in Kaliningrad. Not between Swiss and Serbian fans, but between Albanian and Serbian supporters. That is because several players in the Swiss squad have Kosovo Albanian roots, including midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri who was born in Kosovo, the former Serbian province that declared independence in 2008. Serbia doesn't recognize Kosovo's independence and relations between the two countries remain tense. Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic didn't want to discuss the issue Thursday. When a reporter asked Petkovic him how he would discuss it with his players, he sidestepped the question. "We will tell them we had a great match against Brazil. That's not enough; we have to play better against Serbia," Petkovic said through an interpreter. Switzerland held Brazil to a 1-1 draw in their opening match, while Serbia beat Costa Rica 1-0 to top the group after one round. Serbia coach Mladen Krstajic was equally reluctant to be drawn into the debate. "I'm not into politics," he said, also speaking through an interpreter. "We have our goals. We're here for sports to represent our country in the best possible way and we're not at all interested in anything else." Shaqiri makes no secret at his pride for his heritage at the World Cup. At training Thursday, he wore football boots with Kosovo's flag on his right heel and the Swiss flag on his left. Midfielder Valon Behrami grew up in what is now Kosovo, moving to Switzerland with his family in 1990 amid rising tensions between ethnic Albanians and Serbs. He has the flags of Switzerland and Kosovo tattooed on his left arm. Such displays have angered some Serbian fans, who often wear T-shirts bearing the map of Kosovo with the Serbian flag on it. The reaction of some Serbian players has also been sharp. "If they are such great patriots, why don't they play for their own countries instead of Switzerland?" Serbia striker Aleksandar Mitrovic asked recently. Friday's match also features two coaches who both come from Bosnia, a country that emerged from the former Yugoslavia after a bitter war in the 1990s. Bosnia finished third in its qualifying group and didn't make it to Russia. "I think that Mr. Petkovic is from Sarajevo. I hail from Zenica," Krstajic said. "So we have two coaches from Bosnia-Herzegovina representing different teams at the World Cup." Zenica is a town about 70 kilometers (45 miles) northwest of Sarajevo, Bosnia's capital. ____ Associated Press writer Dusan Stojanovic in Belgrade, Serbia contributed to this report......»»

ONE: Interim champ Geje Eustaquio hopes son follows in his footsteps

If Cage decided to take a different path however, daddy assures that his support will still be there, 100%  "Kung ibang sports, it depends on the sport.
