With little enthusiasm, Qatar and FIFA study 2022 World Cup expansion

Miami: Soccer’s world governing body FIFA and Qatar’s World Cup organisers concede there are challenges and obstacles to expanding the 2022 tournament from 32 to 48 teams but neither is willing to take the idea off the agenda just yet. Friday’s meeting of FIFA’s ruling council decided to “explore this possibility further and analyse if a joint expansion proposal that meets all the necessary requirements can be submitted to the FIFA Council and the FIFA Congress in June.” Or as FIFA president Gianni Infantino put it: “If it happens — fantastic. If it doesn’t happen — fantastic also”. The obstacles...

Juventus loses 2-0 at Genoa in 1st league defeat of season

Without Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus fell to its first Serie A defeat of the season as it lost 2-0 at Genoa on Sunday.  Substitute Stefano Sturaro, who was sold by Juventus in January after a lengthy injury spell, scored two minutes after coming off the bench for his Genoa debut and Goran Pandev sealed the result.  It was Juve's first league defeat since April but the Bianconeri still have a commanding advantage at the top of the table. They are 18 points ahead of second-placed Napoli, which hosts Udinese later.  Genoa moved 10 points ahead of the relegation zone.  Ronaldo wasn't...

Liverpool go back to the top after James Milner converts late penalty at Fulham

There was a brief period here where doubt might have crept into Liverpool’s challenge, just as hope simultaneously flared in distant Manchester. Jürgen Klopp’s team had been so utterly dominant, albeit without ever threatening to run away with this contest, so to ship such a sloppy equaliser 16 minutes from time, surrendering to defensive indecision for the first time all afternoon, felt critical.

It would take a slip from Sergio Rico, first in failing...
