West Ham vs. Stoke: News, highlights, scores — Andy Carroll spoils Peter Crouch record

Published

on

ANDY Carroll scored a 90th-minute equaliser soon after coming off the bench to earn West Ham a 1-1 draw against Stoke, which was denied a vital win in its bid to escape relegation from the English Premier League.

Carroll’s late strike spared the blushes of teammate Joe Hart, whose mistake allowed Peter Crouch to put Stoke ahead in the 79th and become his club’s record Premier League scorer.

A victory for the visitors would have seen them move to within three points from safety and keep West Ham in real danger of going down. As it turned out, Stoke has five points to make up in its final four games if the team is to preserve its top-flight status.

“The goal was a kick in the teeth,” Crouch said.

Mesut Ozil racism claims: Star quits Germany, 2018 World Cup

WORLD CUP winner Mesut Ozil says he will “no longer be playing for Germany” after accusing some German FA officials of racism.

Ozil, 29, was part of the Germany squad at the World Cup in Russia and was fiercely criticised as they crashed out at the group stage.

A photograph he posed for with Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan ahead of the tournament led to his loyalty to Joachim Low’s side being questioned.

Teen sensation turns game on its head as wasteful Reds punished

Published

A dominant Liverpool showing meant little as Christian Pulisic’s double helped Borussia Dortmund to a 3-1 win in North Carolina.

With the number of chances created, the Reds should have begun their International Champions Cup with victory, and led for 40 minutes once Virgil van Dijk headed in Andrew Robertson’s cross from a corner with 25 minutes gone.

But having barely had a kick, Dortmund were level when halftime substitute Pulisic was taken down by James Milner in the Liverpool box, and the American took the ball from Mario Gotze before dispatching the resulting penalty in front of his home fans.
