Florida Cup: Iwobi Shines as Everton Beat Pumas UNAM

Everton have defeated Puma UNAM with a penalty-kick shootout in their Florida Cup clash at the Camping World Stadium. In the opening match, Everton got a first-half goal and that was enough to send Pumas home with a 1-0 loss. The goal came early in the match, with Moise Kean getting in behind in the 19th minute and hitting his shot at goalkeeper Julio Gonzalez. The keeper made the initial save but spilled it and left Kean with an easy tap-in to give the Toffees a 1-0 lead. Everton should have had a chance from the penalty spot later in the half. Kean again was the danger man, trying an acrobatic shot on the volley and hitting the obviously outstretched arm of Ricardo Galindo in the penalty area. The arm was straight up and not even close to being in a natural position and may have ...

Lawrence Strikes with Last ball, but New Zealand in control

New Zealand put themselves in a strong position in the second Test against England thanks to half-centuries from Devon Conway and Will Young. After England were bowled out for 303, with Dan Lawrence left stranded on 81 not out, Conway (80) and Young (82) both made the most of some good fortune to help the Black Caps close the second day on 229-3, trailing by just 74. Fresh from his double ton on debut at Lord's, Conway survived on 22 when the third umpire adjudged that his edge to Zak Crawley had been grounded, much to England's chagrin, while Young was dropped at slip with only seven to his name, and the pair went on share a stand of 122 for the second wicket.
