By Andrew Downie RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Brazil are hopeful that their Olympic soccer triumph will give the faltering senior national side a boost as they head into two key World Cup qualifiers next month. Although the Olympic tournament features under-23 teams, Brazil believe their win can signal a new beginning for the country's soccer which has been bedeviled by chaotic administration at home and poor results at senior level. Brazil are sixth in the South American World Cup qualifying group – outside the qualifying places for Russia 2018 -- and were dumped out of the Copa America by Peru in Jun

Feyenoord beats Heracles Almelo to stay top of Eredivisie

The first Premier League game staged at the centerpiece stadium of the London Olympics in 2012 served up some late drama Sunday, with new tenant West Ham scoring in the 85th minute to earn a 1-0 win over 10-man Bournemouth. Track-and-field stars like Usain Bolt and David Rudisha produced some amazing memories at the Olympic Stadium - now known simply as London Stadium - four years ago, but this match was forgettable until a flurry of incidents in the latter stages. Bournemouth was left a man short by Harry Arter's sending-off in the 77th, and West Ham took advantage when winger Michail Antonio met an inviting left-wing cross by Gokhan Tore with a header at the far pos
