The press office of Brazilian team Atletico Mineiro has denied the claims of Zamalek president Mortada Mansour that Brazil star Ronaldinho had agreed to join the Cairo giants next season. "Atletico-MG are unaware of any negotiations involving Ronaldinho with Egyptian side Zamalek," Ronaldinho's brother and manager Assis Moreira, who is currently in China, told Brazilian newspaper Globoesporte. "Ronaldinho has a contract with the club until the end of the year," he added. The chairman of Zamalek said on Thursday that he is in talks with the agent of the Brazilian striker to sign him during the summer transfer window. Moreira said he hadn't talked with the Zamalek president. "I had not talked with the president of Zamalek, much less with representatives of the Egyptian club," he said. "He (Mortada) must be talking about Ronaldo. No one spoke to me. This must be a joke." Zamalek are bidding for their first league title since 2004. They reached the mini-league phase of the Egyptian Premier League and the last eight of the Egypt Cup. They are also competing in the group stage of the CAF Champions League. More»

Soccer's governing body FIFA has not yet decided whether to expel Uruguay striker Luis Suarez from the World Cup for biting an opponent with deliberations set to continue on Thursday. Uruguay FA president Wilmar Valdez told reporters in Rio de Janeiro that FIFA's disciplinary committee had not reached a decision on the case at a meeting on Wednesday and would continue deliberations on Thursday. The incident in Uruguay's 1-0 victory over Italy in Natal on Tuesday has brought the ugly side of the game to the fore, marring a tournament that has been widely praised for its attacking football and major upsets. Suarez's lawyer, Alejandro Balbi, flew to Rio de Janeiro with Uruguay FA chief Wilmar Valdez to lay out the player's defense, although the consensus among those who have seen replays of the incident is that the forward's future at the tournament is in serious jeopardy.

With one moment of genuine class at the very death, Portugal snatched victory from the grasp of the United States and kept their World Cup hopes alive on Sunday. If football was divided between "triers" and "flyers" then Juergen Klinsmann's uber-fit side would be an embodiment of the former, while World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo could be considered the archetype of the latter.For 14 minutes in the 30 degree heat and 65 percent humidity of the Amazon basin on Sunday, it looked like the triers would prevail courtesy of Clint Dempsey's goal, which he most unglamorously bundled over the line with his stomach. But quality will often emerge and after 94 minutes of contributing very little, Ronaldo whipped in an inch perfect cross which substitute winger Silvestre Varela rocketed into the net with a diving header. It was a brutal end to the evening for the Americans, who had poured heart, sweat and soul into their quest for a second victory and a place in the last 16 for the fourth time in the last seven tournaments.

Once again, Argentina needed a moment of inspiration from Lionel Messi. For the second match in soccer’s World Cup in Brazil, two-time champion Argentina struggled with lower-ranked opposition. With last night’s game in injury time, Messi took control. The 91th-minute goal from the four-time World Player of the Year made it 1-0 and allowed thousands of fans in Belo Horizonte’s Estadio Mineirao to celebrate. Messi cut inside the defense and keeping the ball on his left foot -- just like he had when his goal gave his team its tournament-opening 2-1 win against Bosnia-Herzegovina on June 15 -- placed it beyond the goalkeeper. “Thanks be to God, the little guy rubbed the lamp in the last minute and we won,” said Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero, who had several second-half saves to ensure Iran -- ranked 38 places below Argentina -- didn’t get an upset. Argentina is now guaranteed a place in the next round. It will seek to continue the winning streak to secure top position in Group F when it plays Nigeria in Porto Alegre in three days, according to defender Pablo Zabaleta. Iran may still qualify if it beats Bosnia on the same day. More»

lex Oxlade-Chamberlain is still not fit enough to play for England at the World Cup, with the midfielder ruled out of Thursday's match against Uruguay. The 20-year-old Arsenal midfielder injured knee ligaments two weeks ago in a warm-up against Ecuador, and was mostly restricted to fitness work away from his teammates in Sao Paulo on Wednesday. "He's not in contention for tomorrow but he will take part in the next full training session," England coach Roy Hodgson said Wednesday. "At the limit, we could have taken a chance with him tomorrow but it'll be better to use the four days before the Costa Rica game to train with the team. "His injury has responded very well to treatment and I don't think we'll put him into the firing line tomorrow before he has some training sessions with the team." England plays Uruguay in Sao Paulo after losing 2-1 to Italy in its opening match in Group D. Uruguay lost 3-1 to Costa Rica. More»

The United States got a dream start to their World Cup campaign when Clint Dempsey scored the fifth fastest goal in tournament history but they needed an 86th minute winner from John Brooks to secure a dramatic 2-1 win over Ghana on Monday. Dempsey drilled the ball into the net after just 32 seconds at the Dunas arena before Andre Ayew finally gave Ghana reward for their second half pressure with an equaliser seven minutes from the end of a physical and often testy match. The contest looked destined for a draw until substitute defender Brooks rose to head Graham Zusi's corner firmly into the back of the net and give the United States revenge over the team that ended their participation in the last two World Cups. Jose Mourinho's exclusive World Cup analysis Juergen Klinsmann's side will now go onto their next match against Portugal, beaten 4-0 by Germany in the Group G opener earlier on Monday, with renewed belief that they can reach the last 16.

The fastest-ever World Cup own goal and a typical piece of Lionel Messi brilliance gave Argentina a 2-1 win over tournament debutants Bosnia in their Group F clash at the Maracana on Sunday. Bosnia's first appearance in a major tournament got off to the worst possible start when Sead Kolasinac deflected the ball into his own net in the third minute but Argentina, odds-on favourites to top a group that also contains Nigeria and Iran, struggled to impose themselves for long periods. Messi had been virtually anonymous but, in the 65th minute, he brought the stadium alive as he exchanged passes with Gonzalo Higuain before exploding past three defenders and then driving the ball in low off a post. Bosnia looked down and out but pulled one back through Vedad Ibisevic to set up a nervous final few minutes for Argentina. More»

Having left Drogba on the bench, Lamouchi said his impact after coming on, almost immediately engineering a winning turnaround as the Africans scored twice in a three-minute burst, was typical of the influence of the 36-year-old striker. "Having a player like Drogba in the team, either starting or as a replacement, always has an effect on the team," he told reporters, adding he had only told the captain he would be on the bench when they arrived at the stadium. "Of course Drogba was disappointed to be on the bench but if you saw the joy when he finished the match - we need him and we will need everyone before the end of this tournament. "When Drogba came on everything changed. Part of leaving him on the bench was to do with strategy, part of it was his fitness. The last time he played 90 minutes was a few months ago in Turkey and he's had an injury since then. "He has improved an awful lot in the last few weeks. He has made a lot of sacrifices to be at the World Cup. "We did not start very well in the game, conceding the first goal because of a careless mistake," added Lamouchi, a former French international with only two years coaching experience. "But after that we made many chances. For us it was really important to get into the competition. "The players are very happy with the victory, but we are not yet qualified," added Lamouchi, whose side next meetColombia in Brasilia on Thursday. Earlier on Saturday, Colombia secured an emphatic 3-0 win over Greece in the opening group match. More»

This time it probably was worth saying. A minute after the final whistle went, the stadium announcer at the Arena Fonte Nova followed a new trend from this World Cup and declared: “The final score was Netherlands 5, Spain 1.” Normally it is redundant message but here it seemed meaningful somehow: Yes, five. Holland had got what the Spanish describe as a manita, a little hand: a goal for each finger. This was the worst defeat a defending champion had ever suffered at the World Cup and it was the first time Spain had conceded five at the tournament since they were last in Brazil, 64 years ago. At the final whistle Daryl Janmaat fell to the turf and kissed it, lying there in disbelief. This was astonishing, barely believable. Four years ago, Holland had lost the World Cup final to Spain. Now, they had humiliated them. They had scored five; they could have scored more. The Spanish goalkeeper, Iker Casillas, made two stunning saves in the dying minutes that will not bring redemption for what went before and Robin Van Persie smashed another shot against the bar. By the end, they had taken 13 shots. Towards the finish, the Dutch were an unstoppable tide; the blue shirts just kept coming forward for more. Olés were their sound track but they were not satisfied to simply pass the ball, to keep it: they wanted to go on plunging the knife in, insatiable, almost sadistic. There was something about the goals, especially the fifth from Arjen Robben, that spoke of an immense superiority. Holland were enjoying this. More»

Brazil's biggest city confronted a second straight day of commuting chaos on Friday, as striking subway workers and a protest over housing conditions tangled the streets of Sao Paulo less than a week before it hosts the opening match of the World Cup. Police used tear gas to break up a demonstration blocking access to one metro station, but a third of the city's subway stops remained closed early in the morning. More than 200 kilometers (125 miles) of traffic choked city streets. The strike already set a record on Thursday for morning gridlock in Sao Paulo this year and snagged several FIFA officials in over two hours of traffic as they arrived for a conference ahead of the World Cup. Logjams could also complicate access to Brazil's final test match before the tournament, a friendly against Serbia in the Morumbi Stadium on the city's leafy west side. World Cup organizers have urged soccer fans to use public transportation to stadiums on game days at 12 host cities, but just a fraction of the transportation projects promised for the tournament have been delivered.
