This week in sports – See all the hot shots you missed or need to watch again (French open, world cup friendlies)

England Versus Nigeria at Wembley Stadium, London

Ended in a 2-1 score against Nigeria, I don’t know about the rest of y’all but am happy with the results considering what the  super eagles where doing in the first half. Their legs where shaking from the England star power.  Cahill and Harry Kane gave them more to be worried about with two goals in the first half.

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr made four changes at the start of the second half and they were very quickly back in the game.  Alex Iwobi’s goal early in the second half broke the invincibility of the England team. The Eagles played more confidently chasing for a second goal till the end of the March.

French open; Serena powers through to the  fourth round to meet her arch rival Maria Sharapova

It normally should not be a big deal, but she is playing her first Grand Slam since giving birth. She won 6-3 6-4 against 11th seed Gorges. Earlier on Saturday, Russian two-time winner Sharapova beat sixth seed Karolina Pliskova 6-2 6-1.

Williams, 36, and Sharapova, 31, will meet in the fourth round on Monday.

This is a big deal because they are arch enemies and hate each other. They have met 21 times and Serena defeated her 19times

Sharapova wrote about Serena “I think Serena hated me for being the skinny kid who beat her, against all odds, at Wimbledon,” she wrote in her autobiography.”I think she hated me for hearing her cry. She’s never forgiven me for it.”

Serena on her part wondered why the incident left the locker room and made it into her book

Lebron James single handedly scored 51 points in the first leg of final game against the warriors;

He was able to achieve this even though a foul left him with one swollen eye. After he got to his feet and shook off the initial shock of the injury, James sank both free throws to give him 24 points in the first half.

James scored his points by shooting 19-of-32 from the field and 10-of-11 from the line. He added eight rebounds and eight assists for his 11th consecutive Finals game with at least 25 points, five boards and five assists — easily the longest such streak in NBA history. No one’s ever had as many as 51 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in a Finals game until he did it.

In-spite of his successful outing, the cavaliers narrowly lost the game. His team mate  missed a free throw and another blunder from JR smith who wasted his opportunity to make a shot before the final whistle

Still fuming from the blunder of his team mate JR smith, he walked out of a press conference when the press kept interrogating him about it

Ousman Dembele goal during france versus Italy world cup friendlies;

This is one goal that’s good to watch again, and again.

Dembele scored France’s third goal, curling a fine finish past goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu from the edge of the penalty area, having earlier hit the crossbar at the end of an impressive run.

Before this game; Liverpool was making moves to buy the player in the transfer market, but Barcelona president Joseph Maria Bartomeu has dismissed speculation about Ousmane Dembele’s future, insisting the forward will remain at the club.
How Liverpool’s goal keeper Loris Karius cost them the Champion’s league: 

From letting the ball slip through his fingers, to acting as goal assist for opponents real Madrid, his final outing was indeed a nightmare that would obviously cost him his career . The club is  already in the process of identifying somebody capable of challenging Karius for the no.1 shirt

How did it happen? well, some people blamed it on Thanos from Avengers getting the final infinity right in the middle of their game.(LOL)

World cup defending champions Germany suffers a surprise defeat by the Austrian team.

A team that did not qualify to play in the last world cup defeated Germany 2-1 on Saturday. The match was delayed due to torrential rain in Klagenfurt, Austria, but it did not seem to affect Germany, who took the lead through a Mesut Ozil goal after just 11 minutes.

Germany looked comfortable throughout the first half, but Austria hit back after the break, and goals from Martin Hinteregger and Alessandro Schopf handed them a deserved victory.
