Xavi, 36, plays for Al Sadd in Qatar, and it is true he has never won a Ballon d'Or. "If I were the president of Real Madrid, I would give myself a 10-year contract". "He's won everything but he's never won a Ballon d'Or - I have three". Notably, the 31-year-old was back on the turf after recovering from a knee injury, that kept him out of action since July 2016.
The Red Devils went into the break 2-0 down and Mourinho criticised a "few players" for being below their normal level in the first half against City.

The teenager burst on to the scene last season, scoring in his Premier League, Europa League and senior global debuts, leading to a call-up for England for the 2016 European Championship in France.
In receiving, Troy Fumagalli had 100 yards in 7 receptions while Robert Wheelwright added 60 yards in 4 catches. "Not the way we wanted the game to go", said Grass, noting that his team "gave up too many explosive plays". "Not ideal in any way". Defensive back Saivion Smith, defensive lineman Frank Herron and receiver Dee Anderson missed the game for breaking team rules, the coach confirmed.
I am very excited to test myself in an important and attractive league such as Serie A , ' he added. The England worldwide goalkeeper found himself second choice behind Willy Caballero for City's opening games of 2016-17, but Claudio Bravo's arrival from Barcelona seemingly demoted Hart to third choice.
The Bills are the flawless team for the Ravens to start the season with. "Two years later, I'm going there as a starter with a year under my belt". I'm excited , but it's not about me. What went wrong? How could Taylor, one of the best deep passers in football, fail to take shots deep with Sammy Watkins , arguably the most unsafe deep receiver in the league? However, Taylor's teammates raved about how he performed in practice, and the struggles they had dealing with his athleticism and arm ...
Kelly Johnson and Alejandro De Aza each delivered an RBI single in the inning before James Loney smacked a run-scoring double and Lugo hit a sacrifice fly.

Power, who is 43 points behind Pagenaud in the championship, has a test at Sonoma Raceway on Thursday, Sept. 8, and the season finale at the same venue begins on Sept. This would effectively hand the championship to teammate Simon Pagenaud, but thankfully for Power, that won't be the case. RAHAL RUINED: Graham Rahal , who won a scintillating duel with James Hinchcliffe last week at Texas, saw his day end early.
Starting in place of Tom Brady, who is serving his four-game Deflategate suspension, Garoppolo looked sharp throughout the game, completing 24 of 33 passes for 264 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions. "We were further behind the 8-ball than we expected to be". Worst post-sack celebration: After Chandler Jones made a sack that forced a Garoppolo fumble and turnover, the former Pats defensive end danced with teammates and was hit with 15-yard penalty because he did so in a choreographed ...
Miocic battled back and hurt Overeem with punches. Things looked as if they could go the other way initially after Overeem floored Miocic with a left hand, but the champ managed to escape a guillotine choke. Moments later, he took the microphone and yelled "O-H" to the crowd, which responded "I-0", to its local champion, whose knock out of Fabricio Werdum this spring was followed by the Cavaliers overcoming a 3-1 deficit to beat Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.
He never seemed rattled. Coach Bill Bilichick wasn't ready to crown Garoppolo the next Brady, though. The Raiders scored 22 points in the fourth quarter, edging in front with Michael Crabtree's two-point conversion, and although the Saints made good progress upfield, rookie kicker Lutz put his game-winning attempt wide of the left-hand upright.
That the Vikings were able to win will tamp down concerns a bit. Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh (3) reacts to missing a 56-yard field goal attempt against the ...

First, a wonderfully violent chip on Miami's right defensive end before Doug Baldwin's fourth-down catch, then his first reception in his return from injury. Stills took advantage of a communication breakdown in the Seattle secondary and was 10 yards past the closest Seahawks defender when Tannehill delivered a near-perfect throw that looked like it would result in a 71-yard touchdown - only to come up empty when Stills dropped the ball at the Seattle 15.
New Orleans gets to bank on Brees playing well for the next two years and reduces Brees' cap hit for 2016 by more than two-thirds of what it otherwise would have been. First, he got fair market value for an elite quarterback - whether you want to consider it a one-year, $24.25 million extension or a two-year deal worth $44.25 million.
Gronkowski, who did not play in any preseason games, has been a limited participant in practice since a joint training camp practice with the Chicago Bears on August 15.

But after video footage showed the swimmers arriving back at the Olympic Village later that morning in good spirits and in possession of their belongings, Rio de Janeiro police launched an investigation that found major holes in their claims.
Blake Bortles , the starting quarterback, for the season didn't play. They have 117 of those since the start of the 2013 season, trailing only Pittsburgh (118) for the most in the NFL. The team cut Sam Barrington last week, and Joe Thomas is the ONLY OTHER inside backer on the Packers roster. Nelson , who missed all of last season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in a late-August preseason game at Pittsburgh, opened training camp this summer on the physically ...

More than 70 people, mostly young men, have since been killed in clashes between protestors and security forces, and thousands more injured in the worst ...
Despite Osweiler's departure, the Broncos were able to find success with second-year quarterback Trevor Siemian who won his first ever National Football League start with a 21-20 nail-biter against Carolina on Thursday. The Patriots leaned on Garoppolo and the third-year quarterback helped lead them to a 23-21 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. The coach, who was also making his debut with the Eagles , looks like a genius.
Kelechi Iheanacho tapped in to double the score for City in the 36th minute. Mourinho's side was handed a crucial lifeline just before half-time when City's debutant goalkeeper Claudio Bravo dropped a free-kick, allowing United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic to pull one back for his team.
The 28-year-old German becomes the oldest to be ranked number one and the first from her country since Steffi Graf held the top rank in women's tennis. "I can go out there focusing on my game". It would explain some of her unusual statistics against Pliskova, who plays Kerber in Saturday's finale.
CM Punk is a former WWE professional wrestler. Punk gave up his back not long after, and after eating some shots from above, Gall secured a fight ending rear-naked-choke.

Eagles fans were pumped for Wentz's debut and it was easy to spot plenty of fans tailgating wearing the QB's No. 11 jersey. Wentz picked out a favorite receiver in Jordan Matthews , who led the way for Philly with seven catches for 114 yards.
But, perhaps, they can exploit the linebackers in coverage. But even with Brady the Cardinals would be a tall task. "Expect the unexpected", Arians said. Any shot that someone other than (LeGarrette) Blount gets a lot of touches? "Just that calm, cool and collected mindset is the way I'm approaching it".
Griffin will have to be better than he was Sunday if the Browns expect to win their home opener against Baltimore in Week 2. He said he had a sprained left shoulder and a Browns spokesman said he will undergo more tests today. "I thought I did a decent job protecting myself recently and I want to continue that", Griffin said . I know [defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz] and [defensive backs coach Cory Undlin], they're going to coach me hard.
He gets another shot Sunday against Stan Wawrinka , who beat Kei Nishikori 4-6, 7-5, 6-4, 6-2. This will be their seventh duel at a grand slam and barring the first, at the 2012 US Open when an injured Wawrinka retired in the third, their duels have been long affairs.
The 30-year-old from Sutton Coldfield won gold in the C1-5 mixed team sprint at the Rio Paralympics on Sunday with Jody Cundy and Louis Rolfe. "We knew after winning bronze at the worlds we were capable of winning a medal, but I never quite allowed myself to believe it would be gold".
While also stressing that Romo should come back this season and that this new injury isn't almost as severe as the ones that kept the 36-year-old out of all but four games last season, Jerry Jones offered high praise for the fourth-round Mississippi State selection who's dazzled during the preseason, completing 39 of his 50 passes for 454 yards and five touchdowns.
The United States scored early and often Tuesday night en route to a second straight shutout victory in World Cup qualifying action. The only way the US would fail to join that group is if it lost Tuesday and Guatemala beat St. And the US soon put the game away. In the 71st minute, Paul Arriola scored his second goal in two US appearances, finishing a rebound on a sequence that began with a Pulisic takeaway and concluded after Pulisics point-blank shot was saved.
He was scheduled to pitch five innings but threw 61 pitches in just two innings while giving up six runs on nine hits and a walk. "That was the inning I executed all my pitches", he said, "so I was excited". Kazuhisa Ishii in April 2002 against Colorado and Pedro Astacio in July 1992 against Philadelphia had 10 each. After his three innings of work, Kershaw headed to the bullpen where he tossed 50 more pitches before finally shutting it down for the day.
All eyes were on rookie quarterback Dak Prescott entering today's game. Prescott and the coaching staff failed to get Dez Bryant the ball all afternoon (1 catch for eight yards). He looked poised. He was accurate early underneath. Clearly, the Giants have created the blueprint for the Redskins to follow next week, and unless Dak finds the ability to throw the deep ball or faster decision-making skills over the next week, it will likely get worse for Prescott.
It represents honoring the many fearless men and women who sacrifice and have sacrificed their lives each and every single day to protect our freedom. If somebody feels it's not good enough, they have that right. Upton countered by writing people "have every right to protest [and] should stand up for beliefs.Justice system IS corrupt".
He was done in by the long ball as Jacoby Ellsbury and Gary Sanchez hit back to back homers in the sixth inning to give Tanaka all the run support he needed. Tanaka finished with 10 strikeouts, five hits and a hit batsman and left to a standing ovation from the Yankee Stadium crowd of 33,460. Ellsbury picked on a familiar victim when he lined his eighth home run, a shot into the right-center field seats.
