United announced on Friday that Fellaini had signed a two-year deal with the option of a third, just a day before his United contract expired. Kroos, who was part of Die Mannschaft's disappointing 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign, signed a long-term contract with Los Blancos in October 2016 which has tied him down to the Santiago Bernabeu until 2022.
However, everything started to unravel on lap 14 when Valtteri Bottas exited the race from second place courtesy of a hydraulic problem which caused the gearbox to fail. We've got to definitely work hard to try to understand where we've gone wrong on both ends. "Everyone is the team is really feeling the pain today but I think you just have to look at it - we've had such great reliability for so many years and as painful as it is, and we are perfectionists, we really have to take the rough ...

World Cup holders Germany returned home on Thursday desperately looking for answers following their historic exit, with head coach Joachim Low set to suffer the consequences of a disastrous campaign. The president of the German Football Association (DFB) expects there to be changes in the squad after the tournament in Russian Federation but insists Loew, 58, will oversee the grooming of the next generation.
The San Antonio Spurs reportedly aren't in a hurry to trade Kawhi Leonard . While Magic Johnson plays it cool regarding his chances to add major free agents to the Los Angeles Lakers , pressure to create his own superteam in L.A. A lot will depend on what James and George decide to do in free agency and if the Spurs decide they're only sending Leonard to the Eastern Conference.
George was traded to the Thunder nearly a year ago after telling the Indiana Pacers he would not re-sign with them. This was shocking because as things now stand, the Thunder's luxury-tax bill (including the repeater tax) would be $130 million with only 11 players under contract.
While some talks have Kevin discussing a one-year deal with Golden State, most accounts have Durant singing a two-year deal to the tune of $61. Weeks ago Durant made clear that his re-signing with the Warriors was a certainty. Paul missed the last two games of that series with an injury, and the Rockets wasted big leads in both of those games - then had to watch the Warriors sweep the Cavaliers for the National Basketball Association title.
After defeats to Sweden and Mexico, South Korea were expected to bow out of the tournament against a Germany side who needed a win, but a major surprise occurred in Kazan. "It's very, very hard to put it into words", said Germany defender Mats Hummels, a member of the team that won in Brazil four years ago. Despite only recently returning from a fracture foot, goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was too often called upon as Germany's last line of defence.
Umtiti, is expected to paired Real Madrid's Raphael Varane in the heart of the French defence line, should be handed the huge task of keeping the five-time Ballon dor victor quiet during the encounter. Entertainment, upsets, personalities, controversy and goals - the World Cup has had it all - and the knockout stage drama hasn't even begun. If you are a Lionel Messi fan, one of those die-hard ones, who can not hear anything bad about their idol, you will, no doubt, find a way to excuse ...
In Brazil four years ago, as Lionel Messi wandered about in a fug of confusion and self-analysis, it was Mascherano who was the leader on the pitch, never happier, it seemed, than with a gaggle of players around him receiving instruction.
Team doctors cleared Leonard to play late in the season, but he chose to sit out until being medically cleared by his personal medical team and representatives. Contracts can't be officially signed until Jul 6. Nevertheless, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith said Thursday that James "reached out to Kevin Durant via text, from what I'm told, about coming to Los Angeles ".
But the Germans failed to fire on Russian soil, suffering a shock 1-0 loss to Mexico in their opener, scraping past Sweden with a stoppage-time victor, and then losing 2-0 to South Korea at the Kazan Arena on Wednesday. "At the end we had to go for the goal and then they scored". But the team never really seemed to recover from its opening 1-0 loss to Mexico. A 3-0 win over Australia in their last game was scant consolation.
The likes of Southampton, Everton and Wolves have shown an interest, but the bargain price has led to the Premier League big guns making a move, and now it appears to be a straight contest between Spurs and Liverpool . Asensio signed a six-year deal at Real Madrid last September but failed to cement a regular first-team spot under Zinedine Zidane in the final third of the campaign.
Lukaku has scored four goals from four shots on target for Belgium . England take on Belgium at 7pm United Kingdom time at Kaliningrad Stadium. Given England's less than impressive record in the latter stages of major championships, Southgate does not see any reason to get carried away just yet.
But unfortunately the striker missed the target from point-blank range and the ball ricocheted back off the post, before smacking into his face. The ball rebounded and slammed him on the forehead. "Why am I so stupid bro", he wrote on Twitter, along with a long line of emojis and some expletives. During the World Cup match between England and Belgium on Thursday, a Belgian player struck himself in the face with a ball from his own kick.
Borna Coric admitted that Lady Luck was on his side as he pulled off the biggest win of his career with a victory over Roger Federer in Sunday's final at Halle . "This is a first for me".

Wahbi Khazri celebrates after scoring Tunisia's second goal against Panama . Subs used: Badri (6), Khalil (5), Srarfi (n/a). The Sunderland forward had two efforts in quick succession in the first minute of two added on, but both were blocked by Roman Torres.
Thursday's Group G clash with England is another chance to reignite his personal goalscoring duel with Harry Kane , as the England captain has hit 5 goals already at the mundial following his hat-trick against Panama.

Japan need only a point against Poland on Thursday to guarantee their passage to the next round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup . Poland are out of the tournament after two defeats, and they will have nothing more to play for other than pride.
Senegal defender Kalidou Koulibaly believes the fact his team represent Africa's last World Cup hope should motivate the players rather than increase the pressure going into their final game in Group H against Colombia Thursday. Yet Mina ensured Colombia were not made to pay when he headed home, sparking delirium among the Colombian fans who formed a sea of yellow inside the stadium.
The team, littered with stars such as Toni Kroos and Mesut Ozil , began by losing to Mexico 1-0 in their first game and only followed that up with a late victor against Sweden in their second. Low, however, was adamant the future of German football is still bright, especially going by their results since the 2006 World Cup and their current youth prospects.
Marcus Rashford is favoured to partner Harry Kane up front over Raheem Sterling , while in come wing-backs Danny Rose and Trent Alexander-Arnold - possibly to allow Ashley Young and Kieran Trippier a break before next week's last-16 tie against Group H opposition.
According to Smith, Durant isn't interested. Of course, that doesn't mean KD has any intention of joining LeBron James in Los Angeles. "As it pertains to LeBron James in LA, the reports have been that he's been making some phone calls or what have you", Smith said on First Take .
Wimbledon organisers have been accused of being set in their ways many times over the years, but the All England Club's seedings committee opted to break with the norm by promoting Williams. However, Watson said special exemption should not be given to players returning from pregnancy. The draw for Wimbledon is Friday; play begins Monday.
Poland and Colombia vs. Senegal on Thursday, Group H looks set to provide a thrilling finale to the group stage of the tournament. It is they that will kick on to the knockout stages of the World Cup , despite finishing their group with an identical points and goals tally to Senegal , who'll be on a plane home in the next 48 hours.
It means there is no African country in the knockout rounds of the World Cup for the first time in 36 years. Japan lost 1-0 to already-eliminated Poland in the group's other fixture. Teammate Radamel Falcao patted him on the back sympathetically as he headed to the sideline. The first flashpoint came soon after when Sanchez stretched in the box to thwart Mane, referee Milorad Mazic pointing to the spot but then overturning the decision when replays revealed a fine recovery tackle.
I really had the feeling that the team, they really wanted to go forward. Suffice to say that things deteriorated quickly in terms of global relations after that result. Mexico fans have since erupted into sheer elation online, tweeting out nothing but love and praise for South Korea . Germany's Thomas Mueller, right, and Mario Gomez walk on the pitch at the end of the group F match between South Korea and Germany, at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Kazan Arena in Kazan, Russia , ...
