The Portugal captain has been accused by Madrid's regional state prosecutor of four counts of tax fraud relating to image rights payments - which have been denied by Ronaldo's representatives.

Dembele left John Stones for dead inside the penalty area before seeing his effort saved by Heaton , but once again the ball bounced out into a risky area and this time Sidibe was there to stroke home the rebound and send France into the break ahead.
But the man who impressed most one more time was their best bowler in this Champions Trophy - Hasan Ali . Here are the four things that they did right in the semi-final. Azhar, who pulled all-rounder Ben Stokes for six, followed him to the landmark in 68 balls. Jos Buttler made just four as he feathered behind off Junaid the ball after drinks, England at that stage 148/5, and when Moeen Ali was brilliantly caught in the deep by Fakhar Zaman off Junaid, England were 162/2 ...

Courtesy a sloppy fielding performance by the Sri Lankans, Pakistan became the 4th team after England , Bangladesh and India to reach the Champions Trophy semi-finals. Morgan promised that the humbling loss to Pakistan would not change his team's approach as they continue to prepare for the 2019 World Cup . England may point to conditions that did not suit them, but the margin of the defeat shows that is no excuse.
Although Bangladesh defeated India in the 2007 ICC World Cup, India has never lost to Bangladesh in a major ICC tournament, winning all five encounters between the two teams. Bangladesh is a very unsafe side on their day and everyone realises that. Both India and Bangladesh have faced one defeats each in the tournament so far.
Hasan Ali once again produced a clinical bowling performance in the tournament and finished his quota of 10 overs at an economy of 3.5 runs per over. Getting England out for 211 is never easy because they have a wonderful balance to their side and we knew if we didn't take wickets they would score heavily.
McGregor , however, has no professional boxing experience. He turned his attention to a boxing match with Mayweather after defeating Eddie Alvarez for the UFC's 155-pound title last November. "Floyd vs. Manny Pacquiao did four million and rising, because with a pay-per-view, the buys keep rolling in for years". It comes less than a month before Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez meet in a highly anticipated fight September 16 that could rival it for pay-per-view buys.

Winning the toss yet again in the tournament, Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed opted to field first. The chairman of Hurriyat Forum took to Twitter and tweeted, "As we were finishing taraweeh, could hear the fire crackers bursting, well played team #Paksitan".
And I believed the same thing over here in this tournament and the last one, but that's what I believe. "For us as a team, it's a very important game, yes". [Against] Sri Lanka - one or two guys put their hands up but it wasn't a great game of cricket. "Kohli is a very good player in this format". The answer lies in there.
It was quite an intense sequence of events that saw Green go from being thrown out of the game to staying in with one technical to his name. "They don't seem to be the sharpest people around". "I don't know. That was pretty bad". Speaking after the game, referee John Goble conceded he did not properly communicate to the scorer's table that Kerr had been given the first-half technical, leading to the foul being incorrectly logged as going against Green.
Guzan starting in net was one of seven changes made by Arena after the 2-0 win over Trinidad and Tobago a couple of days earlier. Bradley's goal is at or near the top of the list.

England wing Anthony Watson, who scored the tourists' only try in their campaign-opening 13-7 win over the New Zealand Provincial Barbarians , is named as a replacement .

Lindelof will officially join United on July 1 and will get his first taste of action for the club on their pre-season tour of America next month.

The world No.1 has yet to lift the French Open crown, and there were fears that run may continue when Nishikori took the first set of their quarter-final clash.

Rose has recorded five top-10s in major championships since his victory at Merion in 2013, where he became the first English victor of the US Open since Tony Jacklin in 1970. Some players in the field for the year's second major that gets underway on Thursday had grumbled about how hard it was to advance the ball out of the fescue that stood nearly knee high.
France were quicker, more aggressive and more youthful. He added: "Our game without the ball has to improve". Monaco's (for now) 18-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe set up Ousmane Dembele for the victor in the 78th minute, giving 10-man France a 3-2 victory.

The capacity crowd, most dressed in Warrior gold T-shirts, cheered and sang along with the tune "We Are The Champions" as confetti fell.

West will not have any official powers in the Clippers' organization, but his wisdom and the respect he holds throughout the National Basketball Association should serve them extremely well.
