He added: "It was a very balanced game in the first half". "We had the chances to end the first half in the lead, but for the second we can not complain, as Real Madrid had an excellent performance". In addition to this, the former Real player won the season's La Liga title. "To win it three times in four years means a lot". If somebody wins the Ballon d'Or and scores so many goals, obviously it's a big advantage.
Over the past 48 hours, it has been suggested that United's bid to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid is off, meaning that manager Jose Mourinho will look elsewhere for attacking additions this summer. For the first time in Champions League history, Real have won the trophy in back to back seasons. Real Madrid paid close to £80m to bring Bale to the Bernabeu in September 2013, but the attacker would now command a £100m transfer fee from Man United, which would bring a ...
It was the first time that Madrid have scored in every LaLiga match . The exquisite touch Ronaldo placed on a Luka Modric cross 63 minutes into this compelling final will rank with his greatest goals: for its timing, skill and ruthless intent.
With two World Cup qualifiers next week, this was a match the Americans hoped to use to build some chemistry and confidence, but it certainly didn't succeed in doing the latter.

That was why I didn't come back out. "I think some of the guys picked up the load pretty well". "I remember telling a few people to keep vigil outside my home so that the crowd doesn't break anything should things not go our way. If we rushed him he might have played the last game of the series [against South Africa] but we didn't want to rush him". There will be a clamour for England to call on Stuart Broad - who the European Central Bank had already asked to be rested for ...
But cricket, in particular test cricket, is played at a much more gentlemanly pace, allowing for interventions after every single delivery. "In any walk of life there are agreements and disagreements always". It is not possible. All I can say is, if you don't have knowledge about something, don't spread rumours. Since neither Kohli nor Kumble has spoken in public, it is impossible to comprehend the exact details of their differences.

One bookmaker said it had paid out on three bets, with one customer claiming he had been paid at 100-1 on a £25 stake.

First Person - Ahead of the Lions tour of New Zealand , Barry Guy remembers the shock of being 9 years old and realising his father was rooting for the Lions in their 1971 series against the All Blacks. " Ireland did it really well (against New Zealand ) and I think the Lions are going to struggle". It's nicer to be longer than that. "It's disappointing, but we don't control that".

An unprecedented third straight NBA Finals clash between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors may highlight the league's lack of parity but will be a ratings bonanza nonetheless, say sports industry analysts.

The acquisition sent quakes throughout the National Basketball Association and all but assured the Warriors, who went on to post the ...
Now, almost a year ago to the day, James' home was the target of racially-motivated vandalism.

The Penguins are listed with a money line of +115 to prevail, while the over/under total for the game is set at 5.5 goals. Jake Guentzel scored his playoff-leading 13th goal as he nears the National Hockey League rookie record, but the Penguins went 0 for 3 on the power play.
The American, who also scored the game-winning, go-ahead goal in Game 1 , drew within two points (19) of the National Hockey League rookie record for points in a single playoff.

Talking about the alleged rift between Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble , he said: "We don't know what's going on (there)".

Although it was Real who opened the scoring through the clinical Ronaldo, the first half belonged to Juventus and, specifically, Mario Mandzukic, whose stunning overhead strike leveled the match for the Italians.
