Emerging star Sands keeps his cool amid rapid USMNT rise

The 21-year-old has impressed Gregg Berhalter with his performances and versatility, earning a spot on the roster for World Cup qualifiers "James Sands one looks like a stock photo." It was a tweet that elicited a reply from U.S. Soccer, a quick response with a photo of the 21-year-old defender/midfielder throwing up a peace sign upon his arrival to U.S. men's national team camp this week. It was also a tweet that spoke to the still-developing perception of the talented youngster, a player just coming into his own for club and country after surging into the spotlight this summer. On the field, Sands is not flashy but always reliable. He's versatile, but not flamboyant. He's a player that goes about his business, makes the right play and starts preparing for the next one.

Elon Musk’s cryptic tweets crash Bitcoin again

Tesla boss Elon Musk was at it again this time firing off a few cryptic tweets that appeared to lament a breakup with Bitcoin. The leading cryptocurrency slipped 4% on Friday after the tweets. Tesla’s big position in bitcoin and Musk’s large personal following often set crypto markets on edge whenever he tweets.

It was unclear what, if anything, any of the tweets meant.

Ben Davies ‘Forced To Delete Embarrassing Tweet’ Ahead Of Signing For Liverpool

  Ben Davies has been left red-faced by eagle-eyed fans after he deleted an old tweet saying 'nobody likes Scousers' ahead of his move to Liverpool. Liverpool spent £2m to secure the services of the 25-year-old defender from Preston on deadline day. Jurgen Klopp has been in urgent need to bolster his defensive options thanks to injuries to Joel Matip and Fabinho. And the Liverpool boss was also dealt an earlier blow in the season after injuries to first-choice centre-back duo Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez. Davies will be a welcomed addition for Klopp to call upon, but the former Preston man probably regrets the cheeky swipe that he made to Scousers.
