EVIAN-LES-BAINS, Germany (AP) -- Jerome Boateng has been a central figure in Germany's advance to the quarterfinals of the European Championship without conceding a goal, so it's a huge relief for his team that a calf injury won't keep him out of Saturday's quarterfinal against Italy. Boateng has helped set the tone for his side at Euro 2016 - at both ends of the field. It all started with a spectacular goal-line clearance against Ukraine when Germany was only 1-0 u

Tennis-British players are pretty good, says new hero Evans

By John Stonestreet LONDON (Reuters) - British men's tennis is blessed with better players than many fans realize, the sport's latest homegrown hero Dan Evans told a Wimbledon audience on Thursday after dismantling 30th seed Alexandr Dolgopolov to reach the third round. In a largely nerveless performance, Evans grabbed his share of the limelight on a raucous Court 2, downing the Ukrainian 7-6(6) 6-4 6-1 by playing the key points better than his higher-ranked opponent. In a country still licking its soccer wounds, the win revived the feelgood factor generated on Monday when self-confessed "loser" Marcus Willis dropped just 10 games in beating Lithuania's Ricardas Berankis, a player ranked 718 places above him in the ranking

Soccer-Ronaldo poses biggest threat yet to Polish rearguard

By John Geddie MARSEILLE, France (Reuters) - Poland have an impressive defensive record at Euro 2016 but standing in their way to a semi-final spot is arguably one of sport's greatest-ever athletes, Cristiano Ronaldo. The monstrous Polish center back pairing of Michal Pazdan and Kamil Glik face their toughest challenge yet when they come up against Portugal in the last-eight clash in Marseille on Thursday, though their previous matches have not provided much by way of preparation for facing the Real Madrid star. Describing 29-year-old Ronaldo as the "perfect athlete", U.S. lifestyle magazine Men's Health says he hits speeds of more than 32 kph, jumps nearly a meter in the air off one leg, runs an average of 16 km per match and hits more winners in the last 20 minutes than anyone els

The latest chastening blow to the nation's sporting prestige was magnified by the instigators of their downfall in Nice being Iceland, the smallest team to ever qualify for a major soccer tournament which had spent years admiring the supposedly superior English. As the North Atlantic island nation prepared for a quarterfinal against France at its first-ever European Championship, the England team flew home to the latest in a long line of post mortems into why the country which invented soccer and hosts its wealthiest competition has not won a title since the 1966 World Cu

If Cristiano Ronaldo is to send Portugal to the semifinals and match Michel Platini's all-time European Championship scoring record, he'll have to find a way through a Poland defense that's among the toughest of the tournament. Ronaldo has scored eight goals from four championships, one shy of Platini's nine, though he's been on inconsistent form in Platini's home country. Frustrated and angry in Portugal's opening draws with Iceland and Austria, Ronaldo has shown flashes of his true talent since then, scoring two goals in a 3-3 draw with Hungary and setting up Ricardo Quaresma's winner against Croatia in the round of 1
