    Australia 0-2 Peru: Socceroos out after Carrillo and Guerrero goals

    Peru striker Paolo Guerrero, who spent seven months fighting a drugs ban just to be in Russia, scored an emotional goal to knock Australia out of the World Cup in a 2-0 victory played in what was a carnival atmosphere in Sochi. The goal, together with a wonderful strike by Watford’s Andre Carrillo, may not have been enough to send the South Americans through — they were already destined to go home — but Guerrero’s journey has been such that it will nevertheless go down in Peruvian football history. The captain feared he would never get to play in a World Cup after being ...

    Denmark 0-0 France: Both sides ease into last 16 of World Cup

    Well, there is always one of these at a World Cup and I suppose we should be grateful that we had to wait 38 matches for it. We also should be glad that it didn’t involve England.There is such a thing as a good goalless draw and this was not it. This was a game so drab, so awful and so spiritless that it was tempting to look at FIFA’s big rule book and see if there was any way that we could send both France and Denmark home.The whistles that greeted the conclusion of the game almost drowned out ...

    World Cup 2018 - Nigeria 1-2 Argentina RESULT

In these moments, it is as if Messi has a way of rendering opponents powerless.
