In his place Ben Wheeler had a night to forget, ending with the awful figures of 0-61 off 3.1 and ordered out of the attack after two waist-high full-tosses. So what's the beef?

Her win reminded Czechs of another surprise Olympic win in 1998 in Nagano when Jaromir Jagr and Dominik Hasek led the men's ice hockey team to a gold medal win over Russian Federation.

The Egyptian has scored all types of goals this season and he added a new one to his collection last night, a goal that looked scarily like the one Messi scored against Arsenal in the Champions League back in 2011. "We still have a lot of quality players like Salah, Mane and Firmino, who create chances", he said. Barnes feels Roberto Firmino would benefit from a slightly deeper role and called for Liverpool to sign a "penalty-box player".
