    KARIM BENZEMA is a "shoo-in" to win the 2022 Ballon d'Or, according to Rio Ferdinand. The France striker, 34, has been in ludicrous form in recent months - most-recently scoring a hat-trick as Real Madrid beat Chelsea 3-1 in the first-leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash. 7Karim Benzema has been in sensational form in recent months and is the early favourite to win the 2022 Ballon d'OrCredit: Getty 7Reigning world champions France have boasted a number of star forwards over the yearsCredit: Reuters Les Bleus have been blessed with a hatful world-class players over the years - winning two World Cups and two European Championship titles.

    WE live in a world where everyone wants black and white but the beauty in the conversation is the grey area. There are those who will argue that, as a player, if you are coming out and talking about Qatar’s human rights records and how disgusted you are, then do something about it and boycott the tournament — or shut up. 1Gareth Southgate voiced his concerns about Qatar earlier this weekCredit: AFP But you can voice an opinion, or not choice to voice it, on Qatar and still go and play in a World Cup. I respect the likes of Jordan Henderson massively for speaking openly and facing the tough questions on such a complex subject. Yet people want someone like him to only be one way or the other and say, ‘I’m not going to Qatar’ — but real life isn’t always like that. You sometimes have to compromise, putting your point of view across but in a way where you keep alive your chances of playing in the biggest competition in the world. Read more on SunSportDRAW-SOME!

    Gymnast Ivan Kuliak caused outrage on Saturday by wearing a Russian war symbol on his shirt while sharing a podium with a Ukrainian rival. Former Russian junior champion Kuliak had just finished third behind winner Ukraine's Illia Kovtun in the parallel bars at a World Cup event in Doha. And as the gymnasts were pictured standing shoulder to shoulder to collect their medals, clearly visible was a letter 'Z' taped across the middle of Kuliak's shirt.  The letter Z, which symbolically represents 'victory' in Russian, is daubed on to the front of Vladimir Putin's tanks and other military vehicles.

    FIFA have thrown Russia out of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup after the IOC called for sporting competitions to remove Russian athletes in wake of the invasion of Ukraine.  The Russian men's national team were scheduled to play Poland in a play-off for Qatar 2022 on March 24 - a match Poland said they would boycott - but the Poles have now been given a bye to the next round of qualifying.  It also means Russia will not compete at the women's Euro 2022 in England this summer, with FIFA and UEFA completing talks today about suspending Russia from competitions until further notice.  UEFA have also cancelled their sponsorship deal with Russian energy company Gazprom. The sponsorship deal has been in place since 2012 and has been reported to be worth around 40 million euros per season. Earlier the IOC decision, which included Belarusian athletes too, followed an Executive Board meeting where Russia's invasion of Ukraine was discussed. The committee has withdrawn the Olympic order from Vladimir Putin 'considering the extremely grave violation of the Olympic Truce and other violations...
    Czech Republic have joined Poland and Sweden in insisting they won't face Russia in a potential World Cup play-off next month. FIFA is facing increased pressure to kick Russia out of the play-offs over president Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine. Czech Republic are currently due to play Sweden on March 24 as they fight for their place at the Qatar World Cup. The winners of that match are then scheduled to face the winners of Russia's clash with Poland - to decide who will make the tournament which kicks-off in November. President of the Polish FA, Cezary Kulesza, said they would not play the semi-final 'in light of the escalation of the Russian Federation's aggression against Ukraine - this is the only right decision.'  Czech Republic have now posted a statement on their Twitter account in which they have agreed that it's 'not possible to play against the Russian national team. They wrote: 'The Czech FA executive committee, staff members and players of the national team agreed it's not possible to play against the Russian national team in the current...
    The USWNT reached a settlement in their equal pay dispute with the US Soccer Federation (USSF) this week, but ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith is appalled that the issue had to be brought to court. “As a man, I’m both sad and disgusted. Because as men, we’re exposed,” Smith ranted Wednesday on First Take. “Why the hell did it take a lawsuit for this to happen?” “Some of these men who are in these leadership positions are so either deaf, dumb and blind or so aloof, so dismissive about the elements of fairness,” Smith continued. “These women should not have had to sue them for this opportunity. For equity. They should not have had to go through this at all!” The legal dispute stemmed from 2019, when members of the USWNT filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against US Soccer on International Women’s Day. After initially seeking almost $67 million in damages to make up for past differences between the men’s and women’s World Cup prize money, the USWNT eventually settled for $22 million. “In France in 2019, they had won their...
    CRISTIANO RONALDO'S infamous wink after Wayne Rooney was sent off in the 2006 World Cup quarter-finals sparked fury among England fans. But now Rooney has offered a fascinating insight into the situation, and admitted he would have acted 'exactly the same' as his Manchester United colleague did. 2Rooney was sent off in the World Cup quarter-final between England and Portugal in 2006Credit: PA 2Ronaldo had a huge hand in getting his Man Utd teammate sent off, and winked to the Portugal bench after Rooney was given his marching ordersCredit: BBC Ronaldo played a major role in Rooney being given his marching orders for a stamp on Portugal's Ricardo Carvalho, with the Three Lions eventually losing the game on penalties. After the incident Ronaldo cheekily winked to the Portugal bench for getting the England star sent off, in a move that many believed would damage the pair's relationship at club level. Although Rooney has now revealed he would have done the same thing had the shoe been on the other foot. The now Derby County boss told Ronaldo...
    The United States have been slammed by opponents Honduras after they were made to play in freezing -2F weather during their 3-0 World Cup qualifying defeat in Minnesota, with the decision blasted as 'inconceivable'. The visitors were enraged over the choice of venue and the chilling conditions - with two players forced off at half-time with hypothermia and others requiring IV drips to recover. Head coach Hernan Dario Gomez led the protests - even before the game - slamming the decision to host the game in Minnesota. He said that it was 'not normal' that his players, used to temperatures reaching 86F in their country this week, should have to play in a location that is 'not for enjoying, it's for suffering'. As the hosts, the US were able to choose the stadium for the game and picked Minnesota's Allianz Field - a new venue opened just three years ago, but facing sub-zero temperatures in the Midwest winter. The wind chill was -8F at kick-off, making it the coldest U.S. home game in the team's history. The winter chill in Minnesota was...
    ANTONIO RUDIGER reportedly feels Chelsea’s latest contract offer is a ‘slap in the face’. Bild claims the defender has been left fuming after the Blues fell short of his wage demands by £60,000-a-week. 1Antonio Rudiger has been left unimpressed with Chelsea's latest contract offerCredit: Getty Rudiger, 28, has been one of Chelsea’s star men since Thomas Tuchel took charge at the start of the year. He played a key role in last season’s Champions League final triumph over Manchester City. And Blues fans were hoping his contract renewal would be taken care of promptly to prevent a free transfer next summer. But Chelsea are now facing the very real prospect of losing Rudiger for nothing after another round of contract talks ended in disappointment. It’s claimed Rudiger is looking for £10m-a-year, which works out to around £190k-a-week. However, Chelsea are only offering him £7m-a-year - which is around £130k-a-week.

    The recent action in South America’s World Cup qualifiers only came to a close last Thursday, so there was not enough time for the stars to make it back across the Atlantic and play for the club sides this weekend. For some there is the added problem of quarantine. Colombia remains on the red list, meaning that Tottenham’s Davinson Sanchez and Jefferson Lerma of Bournemouth have to spend ten days out of circulation. 2Brazil star Alisson was forced to quarantine after playing for his country in ColombiaCredit: Getty - Contributor This also applies to Brazil’s eight-strong Premier League contingent, who were in Colombia until Sunday 10th, and need to wait a while to complete their ten days. Although, that has worked out fine for Alisson and Fabinho of Liverpool, who have gone straight to Spain where they will be available for Champions League duty against Atletico Madrid, by which time they will be able to get back to England without problems. This is a tale of the clubs having their interests harmed by the national teams. It is an extreme...
    PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN hitman Neymar appeared to try and KISS Yerry Mina during Brazil's World Cup qualifier with Colombia on Sunday night. The Samba Boys' perfect start to their qualifying campaign came to an end last night as they were held to a 0-0 draw in Barranquilla. 4Yerry Mina kept close tabs on Neymar during Colombia's World Cup Qualifier against BrazilCredit: GETTY 4PSG hitman Neymar was left frustrated by Mina's roughhouse tacticsCredit: EPA 4And he tried to plant a smacker on the Everton defender during a heated exchangeCredit: AP But the game will be remembered for a bizarre interaction between Neymar and Mina. Following a meaty coming together which left both men on the floor, a frustrated Mina went over to the former Barcelona star to angrily exchange words. Neymar didn't take kindly to Mina's aggression, standing up and moving his face to the Everton defender's. And he then proceeded to pucker up and try to lay a smacker on the burly centre-back. The kiss, however, didn't make contact with Mina, who promptly walked away from the angry forward. Neymar, 29,...
    The world of football fell silent yesterday after being challenged to take action against the persecution of gay people and the mistreatment of women in Qatar ahead of the World Cup. The inclusive face of football – and the desire of its role models to speak out – was epitomised by England captain Harry Kane wearing a rainbow armband and taking the knee at Wembley during Euro 2020 in June. But a string of influential figures so often keen to burnish their credentials by backing the taking of the knee to combat racism or supporting campaigns against homophobia uttered not a word when asked to pledge to speak out against the brutal Middle East nation or to boycott the tournament. BBC director-general Tim Davie and ITV chief Carolyn McCall, the heads of Britain’s biggest broadcasters, which have the rights to broadcast games, were also quiet. The inclusive face of football – and the desire of its role models to speak out – was epitomised by England captain Harry Kane wearing a rainbow armband and taking the knee at Wembley during Euro...
    Elton John, Brad Pitt, and More Celebs Who Changed Their Names Occupations With the Oldest Workers So many issues, ranging from practicality to the fragile international calendar and beyond, call FIFA's aggressive push into question. View the original article to see embedded media.There is, officially, a consultation process currently being conducted by FIFA into the feasibility of staging a men's World Cup every two years. But FIFA's Chief of Global Development, Arsène Wenger, has been outspoken in favor, while the sport's governing body has wheeled out an array of former stars—Didier Drogba, Jurgen Klinsmann, Marco Materazzi, Lothar Matthäus, Michael Owen, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldo, Peter Schmeichel, John Terry, Yaya Touré among them—to issue similarly worded statements expressing their support. A previous report concluded a biennial World Cup was a bad idea, yet who could possibly predict how this story will end? Why FIFA is in favor of it is clear: Money. About 95% of its income in a four-year cycle comes from World Cups. Doubling the number of tournaments probably won’t quite double its revenues, but it could come close....

(Photo by ORLANDO SIERRA/AFP via Getty Images) It had, over less than a week, failed to score in El Salvador; suspended one of its stars for violating COVID protocols; looked stale and blew a lead to Canada at home; scrapped just about everything that had brought it success this past summer, threw an inexperienced and disjointed lineup onto a hostile field in Honduras, and gone down 1-0 to a goal scored by a midfielder who plays his club soccer in Angola. Head coach Gregg Berhalter, sweating through a tight "STATES" t-shirt, was on a rapidly warming seat. Memories of Couva, of the 2018 World Cup qualifying debacle, were suddenly fresh. An hour later, at 10:30 local time? The...
    Brazilian footballing legend Pele has been in hospital for six days with an undisclosed health problem but the 80-year-old is not seriously ill. The Globo news site in Brazil said Pele was undergoing routine examinations in Sao Paulo's Albert Einstein Hospital when the undisclosed issue was detected. Pele's business manager Joe Fraga said there was no cause for concern. Pele has spent six days in hospital with an issue his business manager insists is not serious Pele posted the above picture to social media last week while denying claims he had fainted 'Full battery of tests/scans/colonoscopy/blood etc,' Fraga wrote in a message to Reuters. 'He doesn't do everything in one day.' The scare came a few days after Pele was forced to refute reports he had fainted. In an Instagram message accompanied by a smiling picture of the three-times World Cup winner, Pele wrote: 'Guys, I didn't faint and I'm in very good health.  'I went for my routine exams, which I had not been able to do before because of the pandemic. Let them know I don't...
    IAN POULTER'S love affair with the World Golf Championship events looks like giving him the final push into the European team for next month’s Ryder Cup. The two biggest wins of Poulter’s career have come in WGC competitions, and he has finished runner-up on two other occasions. 1Ian Poulter's love affair with the World Golf Championship events continued at the St Jude InvitationalCredit: Reuters And he is bang in the hunt for a third world-beating victory, after adding a four under par 66 to his first round 64 at the St Jude Invitational in Memphis. Poulter, 45, was worried that two weeks at home with his family in England after the Open would have dulled his competitive edge - but those fears have proved totally unfounded.

    The Mexican National Team Sub23 will face an old acquaintance again in the Semifinals of the Olympic Games, Brazil, team that at a general level has faced on several occasions during this new millennium and which has been won, some of them being one of the most important in history for the Tri The triumphs that stood out the most from Mexico versus Brazil have undoubtedly been those presented in the America’s Cup, Gold Cup and Confederations Cup at a higher level, while in lower divisions are those achieved in the Olympic Games of London 2012 to win the medal of Gold or that of the 2005 U17 World Cup Final in Peru, with which the Tri it obtained its first championship of the category. However, the Canarinha has also dealt strong blows to Mexico, the last painful one occurred three years ago during the Russia World Cup 2018, when the South American team beat the Greens 2-0 to leave them eliminated from the international competition. At a higher level, Mexico has met on several occasions with his Brazilian...
