Football Matches Across England this Postponed

British sports paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II after her death on Thursday with football’s governing bodies in discussion with the government as to the status of events for this weekend and beyond. Buckingham Palace announced earlier on Thursday that the Queen, Britain’s longest reigning monarch, had passed away peacefully at the age of 96. The country, as well as the other 14 nations of which Elizabeth was sovereign, will now enter a period of mourning.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport will meet with sporting bodies on Friday morning to offer guidance on the status of this weekend’s events, which include a full schedule for English and Scottish football.

Football Matches Across England this postpones fixtures after Queen Elizabeth’s death:

On Thursday, Europa League and Conference League matches involving British sides went ahead following consultation with competition governing body UEFA and the English Football Association (FA), given that news broke only an hour and a half before the later matches kicked off. Safety considerations were paramount in making the decision that the games should go ahead. Arsenal’s match away to FC Zurich had kicked off before confirmation of the Queen’s passing; prior to the game’s resumption for the second half, both sides undertook a minute of silence to pay tribute. Arsenal players wore black armbands.

Manchester United and West Ham United also observed a period of silence with players from the English clubs and their opponents wearing black armbands. Supporters at London Stadium chanted “God save the Queen.”

A statement from the club said: “Manchester United shares the sorrow of the entire nation following the announcement from Buckingham Palace on the passing of Her Majesty, The Queen. The club recognizes her immense contribution to public life, including sport, both here in the United Kingdom, across the Commonwealth, and around the world. Everyone connected with Manchester United joins the wider football family in sending our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to The Royal Family.”

Government guidance for the death last year of the Queen’s husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, left it up to individual sporting bodies to decide whether to postpone fixtures. When the previous monarch George VI died in 1952 football matches went ahead with hymn “Abide With Me” sung before kickoff.

Those include the PGA Championship event at Wentworth and the second day of the cricket Test match between England and South Africa at The Oval, London. Formula One chief executive Stefano Domenicali said: “Formula One mourns the passing of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II. For more than seven decades she dedicated her life to public service with dignity and devotion and inspired so many around the world.

UEFA Champions League 2022-23 Season Football Full Matches

UEFA Champions League Power Rankings Manchester City lead Bayern Munich, Liverpool, PSG We’re back! And we are ready for a Champions League season unlike any other, available to watch in its entirety on Paramount. The group stages kick off in a matter of days; by the start of November they will be in the history books. By that time you might finally have made your way through our comprehensive power rankings, which assess each team’s likelihood of winning the tournament in its entirety. Here, then, is who we view as the runners and riders to win it all in Istanbul next year.

UEFA Champions League Rankings:

Manchester City:

They may not have the trophies to show for it, but Pep Guardiola’s side have set the standard across the continent over the last few years and the early indications are that Erling Haaland’s introduction only adds to their quality, offering a more direct route to goal to combine with the subtlety of old. The only slight concern for them might be that this summer’s transfer business has left them one top tier player light in their frontline, but even that seems doubtful.

Bayern Munich:

Further down the line a season of romping past what does not seem to be the stiffest of Bundesliga competition might leave them untested, but right now Julian Nagelsmann’s clutch of forwards seem to be hitting even greater heights in the free-flowing post-Robert Lewandowski era.

Liverpool:

An injury-plagued midfield with several options who might be too old or too young to make telling contributions has nerves jangling on Merseyside, not least those of an unprotected Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Real Madrid:

The holders will be expecting the most serene of passages out of their group, which should offer Carlo Ancelotti an insight into how easily Aurelien Tchouameni can fill Casemiro’s boots. Indeed, without wishing to unecessarily insult three solid teams in Group F, Madrid could well use this competition to blood a few other talents while holding their star veterans Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Karim Benzema in reserve so that they remain fresh later in the year.

Serious contenders: If things go right, why not us?
It certainly is not beyond the realm of imagination that any of these teams could be lifting the European Cup in Istanbul come May, though it may require a few fortunate breaks for the tournament to go their way.

Paris Saint-Germain:

PSG will naturally view themselves as being in the top tier of contenders but this summer has brought something approximating a period of reflection for Europe’s most spend happy giant. Appointing Christophe Galtier and investing in younger talent from France and Portugal suggests a club willing to build slowly around Kylian Mbappe.

Chelsea:

The season has not started swimmingly for Todd Boehly and Thomas Tuchel, still assembling their ship for 2022-23 long after it set sail. Then the question becomes whether Tuchel can rediscover the defensive alchemy of early in his reign; if so there is nothing that is beyond this team.

Dark horses:

These teams are unlikely champions, but then so were Real Madrid at this time in 2021. It may take a change of circumstances, or a new tactical plan, or simply Karim Benzema having the season of his life, but it’s possible. It’s certainly not probable, but stranger things have happened.

They certainly go into Group E filled with players who have a point to prove. The group stage draw was cruel to them last year but has been altogether kinder this time out; it would be a shock indeed if they are not in the last 16.

They offered quite the stern test to Liverpool last season and in holding on to Milan Skriniar they profile to head into this year’s competition a stronger, more experienced group. Indeed put them in another group and they might just shoot up the rankings. The reality however is that they may have unwittingly found themselves in a straight knockout round against Barcelona already, one where Simone Inzaghi will hope his side’s years of experience together pays dividend.

Football Italia Serie A 2022-23 season on

AC Milan are the reigning champions after their incredible run to the title last season while Inter Milan and Juventus figure to also be in the race. Roma, under legendary manager Jose Mourinho, hope that their offseason additions will be enough to get them into the conversation as well. The promoted sides are Lecce, Cremonese and Monza, and they all aim to avoid the fate of Cagliari, Genoa and Venezia, who were all relegated last season.

A 0-0 draw at Fiorentina wasn’t overly impressive, but La Viola have gone three games without conceding … or scoring. As for Napoli, their high-powered attack could not find the breakthrough on the road but should bounce back against Lecce on Wednesday. Luciano Spalletti’s team still remain in first place in the league, having scored nine times in their first two games.

The Derby della Madonnina is something else. It’s one of the very best rivalries in all of world soccer, boosted by the fact that the two teams from Milan are back to winning again. They may not be at the legendary level of over a decade ago, but these are the games that can go a long way in deciding who wins the league. Inter won it two seasons ago, and Milan ended their drought by winning it last season. Milan have the early edge due to Lukaku’s absence, but expect plenty of fireworks and no shortage of emotion.

BMW Championship PGA Tour Golf 2022

The PGA Tour moves onto the second event of the FedEx Cup Playoffs with players making the trip from Memphis, Tennessee, to Wilmington, Delaware, for this week’s BMW Championship. The penultimate tournament since the very beginning of the FedEx Cup existence, the BMW Championship continues to rotate among golf courses in the Midwest and Northeast United States. Wilmington Country Club will take center stage this time around in its PGA Tour debut. Will Zalatoris, fresh off his breakthrough victory at the St. Jude Championship, hopes to keep the momentum rolling on the Robert Trent Jones Sr. design. With a strong finish, he could all but secure the top spot in the FedEx Cup standings ahead of the Tour Championship.

While Scottie Scheffler and Sam Burns may have something to say about this, Cameron Smith will not. Citing hip discomfort, the FedEx Cup No. 3 will not participate in the BMW Championship. That, coupled with Tommy Fleetwood staying on the sidelines for personal reasons, leaves the field at 68 players. Just as compelling as the top of the standings is the bottom, with many players vying to compete in their first Tour Championship. The top 30 players will make their way into next week’s tournament, and with it earn exemptions into three major championships. This makes the BMW Championship all the more important when considering Davis Riley (No. 27), Sahith Theegala (No. 28), Maverick McNealy (No. 33) and Denny McCarhty (No. 36) have yet to participate in The Masters.

Event information:

Event: BMW Championship | Dates: Aug. 18-21
Location: Wilmington Country Club – Wilmington, Delaware
Par: 71 | Yardage: 7,534 | Purse: $15,000,000

2022 BMW Championship:

Rory McIlroy (10-1): One of the bigger surprises from the St. Jude Championship was McIlroy’s absence from the weekend. Missing his first cut since the Texas Open the week before the Masters, the Northern Irishman should be in store for a bounce-back performance. His iron play was actually pretty sound at TPC Southwind as he gained nearly two strokes on approach, but off-the-tee woes were his eventual undoing. There is only one annual stop on the PGA Tour which boasts a similar scorecard to Wilmington CC — Quail Hollow Club, where McIlroy has won three times before.

Jon Rahm (12-1): The 2020 BMW Championship winner is slowly but surely rounding into form. Finishing in a tie for fifth at the St. Jude Championship, Rahm put together his best iron performance since the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March. Combine this uptick in approach play with his off-the-tee presence and improvements in the short-game department, and the Spaniard should be in the mix on Sunday.

Patrick Cantlay (14-1): The defending champion is very close to figuring it all out. Without a solo victory to his name this season — he won the Zurich Classic alongside Xander Schauffele — the reigning PGA Tour Player of the Year has notched three runner-up finishes and six additional top-10 finishes. He took a step back at the St. Jude Championship with a T57 finish, but on a course with massive putting surfaces, if able to wield his flat stick in a manner remotely similar to last year at Caves Valley, he will change his fortunes and head into the Tour Championship with a realistic opportunity to claim a second straight FedEx Cup title.

Scottie Scheffler (14-1): For the first time in a long time, Scheffler’s name does not occupy to the top spot in the FedEx Cup standings. Only 124 points behind Zalatoris, the Masters champion will have his chance to reclaim the No. 1 position ahead of the Tour Championship. In order to do so, Scheffler will need to be much better on the greens. Showing frustration at TPC Southwind, the Texan has now lost strokes with the putter in seven of his last nine tournaments, including four straight. The good news for Scheffler is that during this span, the two occasions he was better than the field with the flat stick was his playoff loss at the Charles Schwab Challenge and his runner-up performance at the U.S. Open.

Tony Finau (14-1): Kyle Porter wrote about Finau’s quest for three straight victories and the rare company he would have joined if he pulled it off at TPC Southwind. Ultimately finishing T5, there is not much to dislike when it comes to the four-time PGA Tour winner and his chances this week. Stepping foot onto a long golf course where birdies should be abundant, it is hard to look past his name on the odds board.

Xander Schauffele (18-1): The Olympic gold medalist has three victories to his credit this season, but let’s not forget what Schauffele’s bread and butter used to be: no-cut events. He did not get off to the best of starts with a T57 at the St. Jude Championship, but he still remains sixth in the FedEx Cup standings. With his affinity for East Lake, Schauffele will just need to be within arm’s reach heading into the Tour Championship.

2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar 100 days to go

We are officially 100 days out from the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and it’s going to be here before you know it. A unique edition of the tournament, it will be the last to feature the current format ahead of big changes come 2026. To celebrate 100 days until the tournament starts, here are 100 things you need to know about the FIFA World Cup. 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar 100 things to know with 100 days to go; news, notes, facts for every team

 Let’s start with the basics

The World Cup is the biggest international soccer tournament in the world, and the most watched sporting event in the world.

2. First World Cup in the Middle East

We later discovered that two members of the FIFA Executive Committee had their voting rights suspended following allegations that they would accept money in exchange for votes.

3. First winter World Cup

4. So how hot are expecting the temperatures to get?

The average high in July is 106 degrees Fahrenheit, while the average in November is 84 degrees Fahrenheit and 75 degrees Fahrenheit in December.

5. Air conditioning in the stadiums

To combat the heat, though it figures to be fairly comfortable during the tournament, the stadiums at the 2022 FIFA World Cup will have air conditioning.

6. The elephant in the room

It would be remiss to talk about the Qatar World Cup and ignore the number of controversies around the event. We’ve seen issues with migrant workers, slavery allegations and deaths. Amnesty International and other rights groups have called for $440 million to compensate migrant workers, matching the prize money of the winning team. Sticking with human rights, promoting same-sex relationships is illegal in Qatar which has caused several boycotts from LGBTQIA supporters. We’ve seen bidding corruption allegations and ex-players such as Philipp Lahm boycott the whole thing. All eyes are going to be in Qatar — for the wrong and right reasons.

7. Do you need a visa to visit Qatar?

For Americans, when traveling on a U.S. tourist passport, the government of Qatar does not require prior visa arrangements. Travelers may obtain a free visa waiver upon arrival, according to the State Department.

9. How long has the World Cup been around for and which team has won it the most?

There have been 21 men’s World Cups, with Qatar being the 22nd World Cup. FIFA has been organizing World Cups since 1930. That’s when Uruguay hosted the first ever World Cup and beat Argentina in the final, 4-2. The United States finished third.

You can count the stars on their crest and you’ll see Brazil has five titles (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, 2002). Italy and Germany are right behind with four each.

10. Have the United States ever won a World Cup?

Yes, but only on the women’s side. The United States men’s national team has never won the competition. The United States women’s national team has won four World Cups. The men made the semifinals in 1930 and the quarterfinals in 2002.

11. How do teams qualify for World Cup?

The slate included Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal taking on Ghana, Uruguay facing South Korea, and tournament favorites Brazil facing Serbia.

24. Black Friday football!

There’s been talk of the NFL getting a Black Friday game soon on what is traditionally a big shopping day for American consumers. Similarly to Turkey Day, consumers from all over the world will get their World Cup fix with a quadruple-header of games that ends with England taking on Gregg Berhalter’s United States.

Our James Benge has you covered with his World Cup power rankings with five-time champions Brazil leading the pack.

26. Expert predictions for every game

Benge is back in full World Cup mode, picking every single game at the tournament with a score.

27. The ball

28. The mascot

29. The official song

30. VAR

The system helps them make faster, more accurate decisions when it comes to offside. The new system uses 12 dedicated tracking cameras underneath the roof of the stadium to track the ball and up to 29 data points for players to calculate their exact position. The ball will also have a sensor for measurement.

The safest choice would be Manchester City’s new striker Erling Haaland. His Norwegian side finished third behind Turkey and the Netherlands in their respective group in the UEFA qualifiers.

35. Best odds to win World Cup

According to Caesars Sportsbook, Brazil have the best odds to win the World Cup at +450, while France are second at +550. England are at +700, while Argentina are also at +700.

36. Best odds to win Golden Boot

England’s Harry Kane is the Golden Boot favorite at +800, according to Caesars Sportsbook. France’s Kylian Mbappe is second at +900, with his teammate Karim Benzema at +1000. Both Messi and Ronaldo are at +1400.

37. Who is in Group A?

Qatar, Ecuador, Senegal and Netherlands.

38. Qatar might be better than you think

39. Ecuador are sneaky a good underdog

40. Senegal have what it takes to make history

41. The Netherlands hope to prove they’re back

42. Who is in Group B?

England, Iran, the United States and Wales.

43. The Three Lions are major contenders

This could be one of England’s best teams on paper, and expectations are ultra high after making the Euro 2022 final. They are expecting a deep run, especially after making the semifinals last time around.

44. Iran have more talent at striker than you think

The Iranians might not have much from the midfield back, but don’t discount what they have going forward. They have two established strikers in Mehdi Taremi (Porto) and Sardar Azmoun (Leverkusen), both players Gregg Berhalter would love to have in attack for the U.S.

45. A stepping stone for USMNT

Look, it’s just good to have the U.S. back. But this cup is all about showing progression, trying to do your best, and then they build ahead for the 2026 WorldCup, which will be the most important in this national team’s history.

46. Wales are playing in their first World Cup since 1958

The Welsh, behind Gareth Bale, will be playing in their first World Cup since 1958, and expectations are high. It’s the golden age of Welsh soccer likely coming to a close as Bale is on the other side of 30, but they are more than capable of getting out of this group. The key will be how well Bale and Dan James can produce going forward against defenses in the group that can be rather inconsistent.

47. Who is in Group C?

Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland.

48. Argentina are definite contenders

There is reason for hope for Argentina after ending their trophy drought last year by winning the Copa America. They went out with the old and in with the new for the most part, building a hungry, young squad around Lionel Messi. They haven’t lost since the 2019 Copa America final, going 33 matches unbeaten.

49. Enjoy the group stage, Saudi Arabia

The Saudi’s are back at the World Cup once again, but it will likely be their fifth straight group stage exit. They just don’t have enough quality and are in a tricky group. Thanks for coming, though.

50. Mexico not all that convincing

El Tri are a mess at the moment. Anything short of the knockout stage is a failure, and in such a tricky group, it wouldn’t be all that surprising either.

51. Poland need more than just Lewandowski

Poland earn your respect because they have one of the world’s best players in Robert Lewandowski, but they don’t offer much else. They have an aging squad that cannot rely so much on these veterans. They should have enough to escape the group though.

52. Who is in Group D?

France, Australia, Denmark and Tunisia.

53. France can do it again

The reigning champs have everything you would want in a World Cup team, and they also have so much young talent to compliment. After crashing out at Euro, they’ll be hungry and motivated to show why they are the best in the world. With superstar Kylian Mbappe joining arguably the world’s top player in Karim Benzema, it’s easy to see why they could do it again.

54. Australia’s ceiling isn’t very high

Australia deserved to qualify for the 2022 World Cup, but they are far from a convincing team. Unlikely to escape the group stage, they have a mixture of experience and youth but are lacking star players that can make the difference.

55. Denmark will be a fan favorite

The Danes will be ones to watch, especially if Christain Eriksen plays. After going into cardiac arrest at Euro 2020, he’s back on the pitch and playing for Manchester United. He’s the soul of the team’s attacking creativity and

56. Tunisia ready for history?

This will be Tunisia’s sixth World Cup in their history, but they’ve never made it out of the group stage. In another tricky group, a similar fate likely awaits.

57. Who is in Group E?

Spain, Costa Rica, Germany and Japan.

58. Pedri could be ready to explode on the international stage

This isn’t close to the Spain of 2010 that won the World Cup, but they have some incredible young pieces with Pedri leading the way. The 19-year-old Barcelona man reminds many of both Xavi and Iniesta, and his quality on the ball is what can lift Spain to a deep run.

59. Costa Rica need more than Keylor Navas

Los Ticos are slow, aging and offer very little other than star goalkeeper Keylor Navas. They shocked the world at the 2014 World Cup, but don’t expect anything similar here. It would be a shock if they escape this group after barely qualifying.

60. Germany will be back strong

61. Japan will get a test before the tournament

Japan have a squad with plenty of talent and depth, and they’ll get to measure themselves on in September when they face the United States in a friendly. But they’ll need to find some chemistry in attack. While they scored four against Ghana in a friendly this year, they failed to score against Tunisia and Brazil before and after, showing that they continue to struggle with attacking production.

62. Who is in Group F?

Belgium, Canada, Morocco and Croatia.

63. Belgium’s best chance ever to win?

They’ve been dark horses since 2010, but if there was ever to be a year, this is it. Semifinalists in 2020, the defense is still past its prime and not all that sharp. But what they have in attack is sensational, even if Eden Hazard isn’t himself.

64. Canada, the best Concacaf has to offer

The Canadians are ahead of schedule, qualifying for this World Cup despite nobody giving them much of a chance. They area fast, they play hard, and they finished qualifying as the top team in Concacaf. Be careful with them.

65. Morocco have enough to make noise

While they probably won’t sniff the knockout stage, a win in the group stage couldn’t be all that surprising. They have a difference maker in Bono that can keep them in games.

66. Croatia ready to repeat deep run?

Four years on from their improbable run to the final, they surely can’t do it again, can they? Their best players are well over 30 years of age now, the defense was never all that sharp, and it isn’t significantly better. They do have some young defenders who will need to step up, but don’t expect them to come close to another final due to the natural decline in players.

67. Who is in Group G?

Brazil, Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon.

69. Serbia have the talent

This is a team with so many good players that are looking to show they can gel on the biggest stage. It could be the best Serbia team in years with an incredible technical ability in the middle and strong, sturdy attackers up top. I don’t like the group for them, but it won’t shock me to see them pull surprises and make a little run.

70. Switzerland have one of the best goalkeepers

Switzerland have enjoyed some success over the last decade, though there obviously isn’t a trophy to show for it. A veteran with incredible instincts, he will once again show why few goalkeepers are better on the biggest stage.

71. Cameroon, a staple that have return

Cameroon had made seven of the last eight World Cups before not qualifying in 2018, but now they are back. Though they lack established European stars, like we see with Senegal, the African teams are always dangerous. They play with such heart and love for the sport, knowing they have nothing to lose, and the enjoyment that they portray is infectious. A very challenging group means an early exit may be in store, but expect few to show that they want it more.

72. Who is in Group H?

Portugal, Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea.

Six years on from winning Euro 2016, this Portugal team is more than just Cristiano Ronaldo. With Joao Cancelo, Bernardo Silva, Rafael Leao, Diogo Jota and more, they have as much fire power in attack as you could want. But will they will still roll with 39-year-old Pepe in defense? They need somebody better next to Ruben Dias.

74. Not your father’s Ghana

Ghana may be back at the World Cup after missing in 2018, but don’t expect much. Not only are they in a brutal group, but they lack experience and quality throughout their squad. While Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani have very little left in the tank, they are still dangerous. Mix in Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez, and this attack has everything needed for a run.

76. South Korea’s Heung-Min Son is a must-watch player

Heung-Min Son of South Korea isn’t just the best Asian player, he is one of the very best players in the entire world. The Tottenham attacker is prolific, charismatic and on his way to becoming a legendary player. As he goes, South Korea will go in Qatar. But with him, they have somebody capable of finishing as the tournament’s top scorer.

77. USMNT returns

This will be the United States men’s national team’s first participation at the tournament since the 2014 edition, having failed to qualify for the 2018 edition. The U.S. finished qualifying in third place with a 7-4-3 record, three points behind both Canada and Mexico.

78. France are the reigning champs

Les Bleus won the 2018 tournament in Russia, defeating Croatia in the final. It was their second ever World Cup title, and they are once again reloaded and viewed as contenders to take home the crown. If they manage to win again, they will be the first back-to-back champs since Brazil in 1962.

79. The opening match is a doozy

Qatar open the tournament on Nov. 20 versus Ecuador, and what a match that will be. Both teams know that in a group with Senegal and the Netherlands, this one is so crucial in the battle of head to head. Expect an open game between two teams with technique and speed.

80. The last World Cup for Messi and Ronaldo?

Argentina’s Messi is now 35, Portugal’s Ronaldo is now 37, and it’s realistic to think that this will be the last World Cup for both. Though it wouldn’t be all that shocking to see them in 2026 due to it being the biggest World Cup ever with expansion to 48 teams, in terms of a competitive standpoint, this will likely be their last in terms of top form.

81. Qatar’s first participation

The Qatar national team will be playing in the tournament for the very first time. They are the reigning AFC Asian Cup winners, they played at the 2019 Copa America and the 2021 Gold Cup (reaching the semifinals), but this is their first ever World Cup, having qualified as hosts.

82. USMNT schedule

The United States men’s national team’s schedule at the tournament is as follows:

The Group of Death is the hardest group, one that could very well see a giant slayed before the knockout stage even begins. Now, there might not be a clear-cut one in this tournament for some, but I think there is one. While Group E with Spain, Costa Rica, Germany and Japan is great, Group H does have Portugal, Ghana, Uruguay, South Korea and a whole bunch of stars. But I’m going with Group A. You have host Qatar, and they are formidable, but you also have underrated Ecuador, mighty Netherlands and Africa’s best team, Senegal. Every single one of those games are intriguing in the Group, and something tells me it’s going to deliver some shockers.

84. Squad regulations have changed

FIFA approved a 26-man squad, up from the normal 23.

85. Same goes for the number of substitutions

86. How many games are there?

There will be 64 official matches at the tournament.

87. Are the stadiums fairly close to each other?

Conveniently close. The stadiums are within a 35-mile radius from Doha, the capital of Qatar.

The United States is about 849 times bigger than Qatar. The U.S. state of Connecticut is the closest comparison to the size of Qatar, and even then Connecticut is 8% larger than the host nation and with a higher population (1.1 million more people live in Connecticut).

89. Is there a country that has made every World Cup?

Yes. The Brazil national team is the only country to have qualified for every single World Cup.

90. Entering hot

Brazil, Argentina, England, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Serbia and Morocco all finished World Cup qualifying undefeated.

91. Changes ahead of the World Cup

Both Iran and Morocco axed their managers ahead of the World Cup. Iran ended up bringing back Dragan Skoviv four days after firing him while Vahid Halilhodzic is out with Walid Regragui in as Morocco boss.

92. How many teams advance from group stage?

16 teams advance from the group stage to form the round of 16, and from there it is single elimination the rest of the way.

93. What are the group stage tiebreakers?

94. When does the group stage conclude?

On Dec. 2 at the conclusion of Serbia vs. Switzerland and Cameroon vs. Brazil in Group G.

95. When is the final?

96. Can you qualify for the next World Cup if you win it all this year?

No, being the champion does not guarantee you a spot at the next World Cup.

97. Has the United States ever hosted a World Cup?

98. But what about the Women’s World Cup?

There is not a Women’s World Cup in 2022. The next one will be next year in Australia and New Zealand. The United States women’s national team booked their place over the summer by winning the Concacaf W Championship. sources by

English Premier League EPL 2022-23 Season matches info

Liverpool Premier League 2022-23 season preview bold predictions Jurgen Klopp’s five most intriguing players Premier League 2022-23 The players and teams that will define the season in England’s top flight One of the greatest teams English football has seen in recent years perhaps in much longer return for what will be the fifth season of their recent battle for supremacy. For the most part this squad is a known quantity. We know that Virgil van Dijk will be one of the best defenders in the world, that Mohamed Salah will score goals by the truckload and that Thiago will light up the internet with his impudent passes.

But there are a few other players with some intrigue surrounding them. Here’s five of them. The Premier League is back and with that, it’s a good time to gaze into a crystal ball of what may happen in the league while everyone is still on level footing. Strap in and let’s get to some predictions. Also, for the traditional top four, relegation predictions and the title winner, the CBS Sports staff has you covered.

Best Newcomer: Darwin Nunez, Liverpool

Nunez is quite an addition to the Liverpool attack as Jurgen Klopp refreshes the team to replace Sadio Mane. After scoring 34 goals and assisting four more with Benfica, it’s safe to expect more than 20 goals from Nunez in all competitions as long as he’s on the field consistently. Klopp has already shown that the scouting department is comfortable transitioning players from Portugal with the successful addition of Luis Diaz last season, but Nunez is different from Liverpool’s usual forwards leading the line.

A shoot first, ask questions later forward, Nunez will rely on service from those around him. The good news is that between Mohamed Salah, Thiago, Andrew Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Diaz the crosses coming into the box are a forwards dream. Even if he drifts out to the wing, Salah is able to fill the space in the middle, making Liverpool that much more dangerous. The biggest transition will be adjusting to the press, but Liverpool loaded the preseason with friendlies to give the team as much game time together as possible before moving into the grind of the season. The biggest point in Nunez’s favor over the summer’s more heralded move of Erling Haaland to Manchester City is that I see him getting more starts in an attack that can match City step for step.

Golden Boot Winner: Mohamed Salah, Liverpool

The big red machine moves on. Salah will continue to be a key cog in the attack after signing a contract extension. The only players to best him in the past five seasons are Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane. Vardy is struggling with injuries while he ages while Kane is no longer the most feared attacker on Spurs as that title now shifts to Heung-Min Son who tied Salah for the Golden Boot last year.

Most Improved Team: Newcastle United

This is a loaded answer because Newcastle United did well last season but the jump they last year from the bottom half into the top half is a bigger improvement than doing something like avoiding relegation by climbing higher in midtable like Brentford. The Magpies are fringe Europa League contenders with very little business this summer thanks to the strength of their defense. Sven Botman and Nick Pope are significant upgrades while making the addition of Matt Targett permanent is also a solid addition for them. Under Eddie Howe, Newcastle only need one of Manchester United or West Ham United to slip up to crash England’s European party. With Newcastle’s improvement this season, I’d also back Howe for coach of the year if they’re able to make Europe.

Biggest Drop in the Table: Wolverhampton Wanderers

It’s hard to tell what the Wolves front office is doing. The only addition this summer has been Nathan Collins in central defense. He’s a way to get younger in defense after letting Romain Saiss leave this summer but he won’t improve Wolves’ most pressing problems. Morgan Gibbs-White could bring his sharp form back home from his loan spell with Sheffield United, but playing as a ten instead of as a second striker will change how he influences the game. For Wolves to do well, Pedro Neto and Deniel Podence will need to take significant steps forward. It’s certainly possible that they do that but if they don’t, an attack that only scored 38 goals (good for the fourth worst number in the league) last season, will be worse off and sink the team as a result.

Best Promoted Side: Nottingham Forest

The Tricky Trees earn this title tanks to Fulham’s history in the Premier League and Bournemouth’s lack of business. It could be a tough start for Forest and they could finish anywhere from tenth in the league to dead last and it wouldn’t be surprising to me. Opening the season with Newcastle, West Ham, Everton, Tottenham, and Manchester City expectations will be low for points out of the gate, but that will allow the team to gel under pressure before three consecutive games against teams who will be around the relegation zone with them. By the end of September, we should at least have an idea of which way Forest will be heading.

Breakout Performer: Eberechi Eze, Crystal Palace

After missing significant time due to an Achilles injury, he’s back with a full pre-season under his belt and the number ten shirt showing that he has also earned Patrick Vieira’s trust. With Conor Gallagher back at Chelsea, Eze will shoulder the responsibility of being the creative focus of the Palace attack which could see him easily clear double digits in combined goals and assists this season. Vieira is building something special in South London and Eze’s performances will be at the center of making it work this season.

Best Young Player: Bukayo Saka, Arsenal

Saka will be celebrating his 21st birthday one month from now. It’s wild that he’s only 20 years old as the season kicks off despite having three seasons of Premier League soccer under his belt. Saka is basically a seasoned veteran in this exciting Arsenal side. Coming off of a breakout year that saw him score 11 goals and assist seven more in Premier League play, Arsenal have surrounded Saka with more quality so that he can make the attack tick.

With Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard in the final third, Saka could make last season’s counting stats look like nothing but his focus will be on getting Arsenal back into Champions League play after missing out due to a loss to their North London rivals Tottenham right before the final match week of the season. The disappointment will hopefully drive Arsenal to not leave things so late this season.

Most Valuable American Player: Tyler Adams, Leeds United

Adams is replacing Kalvin Phillips who moved on to Manchester City. Adams will be central to that. Leeds have made quite a few signings this summer so a rough start to the season could see doubt begin to creep in but if it goes well, Adams will be in a great spot ahead of the World Cup in November.

Worst Neck Tattoos: Gianluca Scamacca, West Ham United

It seems like a dueling lion and a woman on Scamacca’s neck. While he should score quite a few goals for the Hammers this season, I’d love to know the story that his tattoos have to tell.

Most likely to be in a Head and Shoulders commercial: Marc Cucurella

After an astonishing move to Chelsea in a deal that could be worth up to £62 million, it’s time to up Cucurella’s endorsement game by following in Troy Polamalu’s footsteps.

WWE SummerSlam 2022 Fight Results Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar main event

After what had been a largely uneven SummerSlam undercard in terms of match quality, Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns delivered a true spectacle in the main event of the show from Nissan Stadium in Nashville. The main event, contested under Last Man Standing rules for Reigns’ undisputed WWE universal championship, saw everything from wild brawling to Lesnar using a tractor to raise half of the ring off the ground.

In the end, Reigns, with the help of The Usos and Paul Heyman, was able to once again defeat Lesnar to remain undisputed champion. Reigns and Lesnar also had to fight off an attempt by Theory to cash in the Money in the Bank contract midway through the match, adding one more layer of chaos to the proceedings. Despite five titles being on the line in the night, no belt changed hands as all champions were able to score victories. Not every champion was able to retain without controversy, however.

2022 SummerSlam match results:

Raw Women’s Championship – Bianca Belair (c) vs. Becky Lynch: Lynch went after Belair’s arm early, trying to set the champion up for the Dis-arm-her armbar. Belair fought back with her power game before the match spilled to the outside where she nearly regained momentum only for Lynch to send Belair crashing into the ringside barricade. Lynch continued to cut off Belair’s attempts to regain momentum at nearly every turn for a long stretch of the match until Belair was able to hit a counter of her own outside the ring, hitting a facebuster onto the ring apron before managing to suplex Lynch onto the ringside mats.

The damage Lynch had done to Belair’s arm came into play when Belair tried for a press slam only for her arm to give out, allowing Lynch to hit a Diamond Dust for a near fall. Belair fought back before looking for the K.O.D. Lynch reversed, nearly hooking in the armbar only for Belair to carry her through the ropes and hit the K.O.D. on the floor only as Lynch barely beat the referee’s 10-count. As the action returned to the ring, Lynch scored her own near fall with a Manhandle Slam.

Belair was able to reverse a superplex moments later, hitting a Spanish fly before another K.O.D. for the pinfall. Lynch and Belair shared a handshake and a hug after the match. A very good way to kick off the show, with Belair having to battle her way through everything Lynch could throw at her and some solid false finishes throughout. Not as good of a match as the two women are capable of, but still entertaining stuff Bianca Belair def.

Bayley made her return as Belair was celebrating her victory. After Bayley made her way to the ring, Dakota Kai’s music hit and she walked out to join Bayley. Io Shirai’s music then hit and she joined Bayley and Kai. The three women then entered the ring to confront Belair only for Lynch to jump in the ring to stand side-by-side with the champion, leading to Bayley and her group backing down.

Logan Paul vs. The Miz: Miz looked to show off his wrestling dominance early, working over Paul with basic wrestling exchanges before Paul hit a waistlock takedown and a fireman’s carry. Paul then worked a bit of boxing. As Miz retreated to the outside, Paul hit a moonsault from the ring apron to the floor. Miz finally grabbed control of the match with a facebuster onto his knees and a bit of outside interference from Ciampa. As Miz tried to hit Paul from behind, Paul ducked, nearly causing Miz to collide with Maryse. As Miz backed away, he backed right into Paul, who hit a Skull-Crushing Finale to score the pin. Love him or hate him, Paul looked great, showing out in several big high-spot moments. Grading on a curve that takes into account Paul’s inexperience, this was a very big success. Logan Paul def.

United States Championship — Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Theory: Theory attacked Lashley with the Money in the Bank briefcase before the match started. Despite the attack, Lashley told the referee to ring the bell and Theory quickly took advantage, hitting a blockbuster and some strikes before Lashley was able to hit a back elbow and a huge slam to force Theory to bail from the ring. Shortly thereafter, Lashley locked in the Hurt Lock to force Theory to tap out.

The Judgement Day vs. The Mysterios (No Disqualification): The Mysterios got off to a quick start with both Rey and Dominik hitting big early dives before a top-rope crossbody from Dominik on Finn Balor for an early two-count. After some quick tags by the Mysterios, Balor and Damian Priest finally got control on Dominik. Balor and Priest kept Dominik isolated, working over the younger Mysterio until he was finally able to make the hot tag to Rey.

Rey went with the high-speed attack, hitting several lightning-quick moves, including a sliding dive with a chair to the outside on Balor. After Balor got back into the match, he ate a top-rope rana from Rey before Priest broke up the pin. As the Mysterios had the match seemingly in hand, Rhea Ripley interfered to attack Rey and set up Priest to hit South of Heaven. Balor called for a chair, but the lights went out and Edge made his return, storming to the ring and hitting spears on both Balor and Priest to help set up a double 619 on Balor for Rey and Dominik to score the win. The match was nothing special and the ring ropes were extremely loose, causing some issues throughout, but the return of Edge gave it something memorable.

How to watch WWE SummerSlam 2022 Fight Full Match Card Online

WWE of PPVs for 2022: SummerSlam date, location, start time, how to watch The WWE is ramping up for their biggest event of the summer as SummerSlam approaches. The 2022 edition of the event will be the 35th in WWE history. SummerSlam goes down in Nashville on July 30. It is one of WWE’s biggest shows of the year and is likely to live up to that status once again as they have already planned several big matches, including a Last Man Standing match between undisputed champion Roman Reigns and longtime rival Brock Lesnar.

On Sept. 3, WWE brings a pay-per-view event back to the UK with Clash at the Castle from Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. The countdown is on for WWE’s biggest event of the summer. SummerSlam goes down on July 30 from Nissan Stadium in Nashville. This year represents the 35th time WWE has held SummerSlam and they’re going big. The long rivalry between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar will continue in the show’s main event. Reigns will defend his undisputed championship against Lesnar in a Last Man Standing Match that will likely see the two men tear each other apart. The build to the show has started but the full card is far from finalized. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what we know — and what we expect — at WWE SummerSlam.

WWE SummerSlam Matches:

Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar: For years, WWE has gone back to Reigns vs. Lesnar to top major cards. They’ve returned to that well once again by having Lesnar return after Reigns beat Riddle to retain his undisputed championship. The two most recently met at WrestleMania, with Reigns getting the win. Now they meet again, this time under Last Man Standing rules.

obby Lashley vs. Theory: Lashley beat Theory to win the title at Money in the Bank. Lashley, meanwhile, will be looking to build momentum as the holder of a secondary title after previously being in the mix as a world title contender.

Pat McAfee vs. Happy Corbin: Corbin has taken issue with McAfee’s digs on commentary, leading to several confrontations. McAfee finally laid out a challenge for a match at SummerSlam. After the conclusion of Money in the Bank, Corbin attacked McAfee and accepted the match. McAfee has put on several very fun performances in NXT and even had a solid match with Theory at WrestleMania. After beating Theory, McAfee lost an impromptu match to Vince McMahon. Corbin has not won a pay-per-view match — including being on the losing side of two Survivor Series tag matches — since December 2019.

The Usos vs The Street Profits: However, replays showed that Montez Ford’s shoulder was actually up at the time of the pin. That’s good news for fans as there’s potential for an even better match between the teams on the big stage of SummerSlam. Authority figure Adam Pearce announced Tennessee’s own Jarrett as the special guest referee for the match.

Liv Morgan vs Ronda Rousey: Morgan won the Money in the Bank contract and cashed it in hours later, scoring a pin on Rousey after Rousey defeated Natalya to retain the title. That successful cash-in gave Morgan her first run as a WWE champion. Now, she’ll have to beat Rousey again, this time without Rousey coming off a grueling win seconds prior.

Bianca Belair vs Becky Lynch: Lynch infamously won the SmackDown title from Belair in less than 30 seconds at last year’s SummerSlam. Still, Belair now has an opportunity to erase the 2021 SummerSlam debacle.

Riddle vs. Seth Rollins: Riddle and Rollins have been mixing it up on Raw for weeks. Rollins has attacked Riddle multiple times, including hitting him with a pair of stomps after Riddle appeared on Kevin Owens’ “KO Show.”

The Miz vs. Logan Paul: The Miz and Paul teamed at WrestleMania to defeat The Mysterios. After that match, Miz turned on Paul, attacking him and landing a Skull-Crushing Finale. Paul eventually began posting on social media angling for a one-on-one match with Miz. That changed on Raw when Paul appeared on Miz TV and threw down the challenge again while insulting Miz. Miz finally accepted and the SummerSlam clash was officially on. sources by

How to Watch Jake Paul vs Hasim Rahman Jr Full Fight Online

Hasim Rahman assures his son will be in rare form against Jake Paul. Hasim Rahman Jr. follows in his father’s footsteps competing in New York’s famed Madison Square Garden. Both parties took part in a press conference on Tuesday ahead of Paul vs. Rahman Jr. at MSG on Aug. 6. The two-time world heavyweight champion was critical of his son’s efforts to date but assured that Rahman Jr. will be more than equipped to deal with Paul. Flat out, I’m going to give you the honest answer, he said. I don’t know if my son is going to like it but I’m going to tell the truth because that’s what I do. My son has really underperformed and underprepared for pretty much all of his fights. But he will be ready for this one.

The only concern Rahman Sr. has is the feedback his son will get after snapping Paul’s undefeated streak. I’m excited like everybody else. I just don’t know how I’ll feel when Jake’s hundred billion fans hate my son. After the fight, they’re going to hate him, Rahman Sr. said. Obviously, we find it disrespectful. Jake is a real fighter. He is a real fighter and we respect that, but I just think he’s moving too quick. I think he picked the wrong guy at the wrong time. It’s weird, I don’t know what’s going on over there, Paul said. They seem to not be very smart. They don’t seem to have any sort of strategy. I think they’re underestimating me. That’s just terrible for his dad to throw him under the bus like that.

Paul (5-0, 4 KOs) will for the first time in his professional boxing career fight someone with professional experience, excluding a technicality in the Tyron Woodley rematch. Rahman Jr. (12-1, 6 KOs) is coming off the first professional loss and finish of his pro career. Rahman Jr. traditionally fights at heavyweight but will compete against Paul at the cruiserweight limit of 200 pounds. Paul props up Rahman Jr. as a bigger foe, but Rahman Jr. rejects the label. The younger Rahman argued that a hydration stipulation in the fight contract will force Rahman Jr. to remain at a size closer to Paul on Fight Night.

You’re stacking the deck, Rahman Jr. said. Why do you keep calling me a heavyweight, talking about how I’m a heavyweight when you’re not fighting me at heavyweight? If you was really that, you would have fought me at heavyweight. There wouldn’t have been no, ‘Oh bring him down to 200 pounds and make sure he can’t go over 210,’ come on man. You saw I just weighed 224 pounds in April. Stop playing with me, you put a 10-pound rehydration clause in the contract, shut your ass up.

Paul contradicted Rahman Jr.’s assessment of the hydration clause when speaking with Morning Kombat. We’re fighting at 200 pounds. He has to weigh 200 pounds on Friday. Then Saturday morning, he can weigh as much as 215 pounds. The night of the fight he can weigh as much as he wants. They almost didn’t want to sanction the fight because they were concerned about his experience over mine.

Paul knocked out former UFC welterweight champion Woodley in his last fight and also holds a knockout win over former Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren.
