Biglia quits global duty after France World Cup exit

Jorge Sampaoli explains touchline exchange with Lionel Messi over Aguero sub

Jorge Sampaoli explains touchline exchange with Lionel Messi over Aguero sub

Argentina and Portugal were dumped out of the Fifa World Cup 2018 on Saturday, with France, led by a 19-year-old, who looks primed to take over Messi and Ronaldo's throne, and Uruguay finding the inspiration and intensity needed to progress to the quarterfinals. "As the team captain I am proud of this group".

While Ronaldo will be bitterly disappointed to be heading home earlier than planned from Russian Federation, he at least has the consolation of having won his country's first ever European Championship, two years ago in France.

He also grabbed the only goal in the 1-0 victory over Morocco. We wanted to win, we fought well, but Uruguay should be congratulated.

Perhaps now we can enjoy the World Cup without the distraction of the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) debate or having to watch these two trying to single-handedly drag their teams over the line.

The next World Cup will be in Qatar in 2022, when Messi will be 35 - and the finals will be played in November and December. He also joined Pele, Miroslav Klose and Uwe Seeler as the only players to score in four World Cups.

Toys ‘R’ Us writes heartwarming goodbye as it closes for good
This seems to be linked to recent rumors of a Toys "R" Us reboot in the works, which surfaced from a Bloomberg report. She has also shared nostalgic Toys "R" Us commercials from the '80s and '90s to commemorate the end of the company.

Despite his fast start in Russia, Ronaldo missed a penalty in the 1-1 draw against Iran in the third game.

By that time, Ronaldo's situation at club level will be clearer after he raised doubts about his future with Real Madrid in the wake of their Champions League final win against Liverpool in May. He only spoke briefly with the media in Russian Federation.

"I am sure that Portugal will continue to be one of the best teams in the world".

"Now is not the time to talk about the future, either of the coach or the players", the Portugal skipper said after the game.

"There is another tournament starting in September and of course we hope Cristiano will be with us to help the younger players grow", Santos said.
