Lukaku, Hazard score 2 each, help Belgium beat Tunisia 5-2

MOSCOW --- Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard scored two goals each in a dominant Belgium display on Saturday, leading their team over Tunisia 5-2 in the highest scoring game of the World Cup. The Red Devils were rampant at times and rested both forwards in the second half for tougher tests ahead. A spot in the round of 16 is almost certain after an opening 3-0 win over Panama. Belgium had a two-goal lead within 16 minutes. Hazard scored with a sixth-minute penalty kick he earned by being tripped, and Lukaku angled a low, left-foot shot into the corner of the opposing goal. "We knew that if we scored early, the game would be easy," Hazard said. "So after five minutes we scored, a...Keep on reading: Lukaku, Hazard score 2 each, help Belgium beat Tunisia 5-2.....»»

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.....»»

MACAU---Geje Eustaquio pulled off a stunning split decision triumph over Adriano Moraes to become the undisputed ONE World flyweight champion Saturday at Studio City here in Macau.

No one had clear control in the majority of the first round with Eustaquio holding the mount but Moraes had his neck under the last two minutes.
