Lingard's goal capped the result, the England worldwide drifting into shooting range and finding the top-right corner from 25 yards.

He was with the Colts for six seasons, closing his tenure with a 53-45 record.

This incredible run of days since his last defeat in the Premier League shows both Pogba's importance Manchester United and his incredible talent. Mourinho said he thought Scholes was jealous of Pogba. "He's a big miss for us but we have the team to fill the gap of Romelu". Since then he's played in 34 games (W21 D13 L0), while Man Utd have lost five games without him in this period.
It's not Paul's fault. Scholes's former team-mates Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs have also been critical of United's season in their work as pundits and Mourinho disparagingly referred to the "class of '92" as "the kings of rock and roll".

It is not Paul Pogba's fault, it's just the way football is. "Some people think they have to be at the club but that's a problem I can not solve". If one day Paul (Scholes) decides to be a manager, I wish he can be 25 percent as successful as myself.
City said on their website that Jesus had "suffered a medial collateral ligament injury" and will have further examinations this week to establish the extent of his lay-off.

The Americans were the gold medalists at the first Olympic women's hockey tournament in 1998 and have three silvers and one bronze since then, as Canada has won the past four golds.

The Cavs started 5-7 this season before winning their next 13 games. However, that rules out Thomas for Wednesday's game against the Boston Celtics, the team that traded him away this offseason.
Jalen has always been a guy that, because of his athleticism and his ability to run the ball, has made a lot of plays with his feet. "That was a real positive", Pruitt said. The two previous Clemson-Alabama matchups were for the title: Alabama beat Clemson 45-40 behind a pick-six and a surprise onside kick in 2016, and Clemson retaliated in 2017 by rallying from an early 14-0 deficit to win 35-31 with a touchdown engineered by quarterback Deshaun Watson in the final seconds.
He had X-rays after the game and was told he might have a sprain. The 76ers (17-19) built a big first-half lead and withstood a second-half barrage from the Suns' Devin Booker and T.J.
