Everton’s Defense Gifts Kane Two Volleyed Goals In 2-2 Draw

LIVERPOOL, April 16 (Reuters) - Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane moved clear at the top of this season's Premier League scoring charts but his brace in a 2-2 draw at Everton was overshadowed by a late injury on Friday.

Kane took his tally to 21 for the season with a goal in each half but Gylfi Sigurdsson also scored twice for the hosts in a draw that did little for either side's fading top-four hopes.

Worryingly for Tottenham, and England, Kane hobbled off in stoppage time with what appeared to be an ankle injury.

Toronto Shocks León, Philadelphia Hammers Saprissa To Advance In CCL

Patrick Mullins and Justin Morrow scored in the second half and Toronto FC defeated Mexican club León 2-1 on Wednesday near Orlando, Fla., to advance to the second round of the CONCACAF Champions League 3-2 on aggregate.

English Phenoms Dictate The Second Leg Between Man City And Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund’s Edin Terzić and Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola promised not to sit on any advantage in Wednesday’s Champions League quarterfinal second leg at Signal Iduna Park, but both were alternately guilty of doing just that in a tumultuous match that was ultimately decided by two second-half goals from the Premier League champion-elect. 

But 40 minutes following Jude Bellingham’s marvelous opener for the home side, Borussia Dortmund genuinely believed. 

Not Even Shattered Bus Windows Could Rattle Real Madrid In Professional Performance Against Liverpool

Real Madrid entered the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals with a two-goal advantage. Los Blancos played as if they had an even larger cushion, looking comfortable and professional — even boring at times — in a 0-0 draw to complete a 3-1 aggregate victory over Liverpool on Wednesday at Anfield.

Los Palos Castigaron A Neymar, Pero El PSG Igual Avanzó A Las Semis De La Champions League

Hay ocasiones en que el balón no quiere entrar. Le pasa a jugadores en el llano y también a cracks de nivel mundial como a Neymar. El brasileño vivió la malaria en el partido de vuelta de los cuartos de final de la Champions League entre el PSG y el Bayern Munich. Entre Manuel Neuer y los palos, el "10" no pudo anotar.

Para su fortuna, el PSG logró avanzar a las semifinales del torneo, cobrándose cierta revancha con los alemanes, quienes los vencieron en la final de la UCL 2020.

USWNT Looked Good Beating France, But That Audio Delay On ESPN Was Awful

ESPN announcers Julie Foudy and Sebastian Salazar talked a lot about the fact the pitch-side mics were clearly picking up everything USWNT coach Vlatko Andonovski was saying during his team’s friendly against France on Tuesday. The audio was certainly interesting, but more so because of a faulty output from ESPN than any tidbits gleaned from a coach yelling at his players.

Atlético Settles For Another Draw As The Walls Close In Around LaLiga Leader

It’s really, really not supposed to happen now. 

It feels next to impossible at this point, although one look at the LaLiga table shows that Atlético Madrid, by virtue of a single point, still controls its own destiny in the title race with eight matches remaining following Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Real Betis.

But the narrative has changed. Rather than the feel-good tale of a team tinkering with new methods of expression, this is now a horror story — and like all good depictions of the macabre, you cannot look away.   

Edinson Cavani’s Flying Header Seals Manchester United’s Comeback Win At Tottenham

LONDON - Late goals by Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood sealed Manchester United a 3-1 comeback win against Tottenham Hotspur, cementing their place in the Premier League top-four and leaving the London club's hopes of joining them looking slim on Sunday.

Cavani had a goal controversially ruled out in an otherwise dull first half shortly before Son Heung-min gave Tottenham a 40th-minute lead with their first shot on target.
