SOCCER

Tottenham Hotspur had a ball boy to thank for helping Spurs overturn a 2-0 deficit and beat Olympiakos 4-2 in the Champions League at the New White Hart Lane last night.

The ball boy’s quick reaction helped Lucas Moura set up Harry Kane for Tottenham’s equaliser.

Spurs boss, Jose Mourinho couldn’t find the youth after the game.


That result qualifies Spurs for the last 16, along with Manchester City, who topped their Group with a 1-1 draw against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Manchester City have announced new investment this morning of 389 million pounds.

American private equity firm Silver Lake have bought around 10 per cent in the club’s parent company.

Liverpool will reach the knockout stage as Group winners if they defeat Napoli at Anfield this evening.

Mo Salah has returned to training this week and could feature.

This is the first of 11 games for Liverpool between now and the end of the year.

A win for Chelsea against Valencia at the Mestalla (PRON: Mes-ty-a) will book their spot in the last 16.

That match has a 5.55 kick off in Spain.

GAELIC GAMES

Nemo Rangers forward Paul Kerrigan has spoken out in favour of club finals moving towards a calendar year over time.

Next year’s club finals will be held in January rather than on St Patrick’s Day.

Kerrigan was speaking at the launch of the AIB Munster Club Football Final against Clonmel Commercials in Dungarvan on Sunday.
