    Bakayoko says Mbappe the best player in the world

    Forget Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, Tiémoué Bakayoko believes Kylian Mbappe is the best player in the world after starring for France at the World Cup.

    Mbappe was crowned young player of the tournament and scored in the final as France equalled their 1998 heroics with a 4-2 win over Croatia in the final.

    Still only a teenager, Mbappe managed feats only bettered by Brazilian legend Pele in Russia and is clearly destined to dominate football in years to come.

    For his former Monaco teammate and fellow Frenchman Bakayoko, Mbappe's rise comes as no shock and believes he's already snatched the coveted crown of world's best from Messi and Ronaldo.

    "I'm not surprised, he's very young but he's very mature," Bakayoko told Goal in Perth.

    "He's a very intelligent player and I think with his characteristics he's the best player in the world.

    "Don't forget he's very young and it's not easy to play against the older players and to be so quick on the pitch."

    Bakayoko's praise comes shortly after French defender Raphael Varane described Mbappe as an 'alien' and a player who understands instructions before they are fully explained.

    As Mbappe and France marched to glory in Russia, Bakayoko was forced to watch on from home.

    Despite missing out on selection, he was left impressed by his nation's performance and is particularly happy for his club teammates.

    "I think we played very well throughout and I'm very happy for Olivier Giroud and N'Golo Kante," he said.

    Chelsea and Bakayoko are preparing for their first pre-season match in Australia against Perth Glory with new coach Maurizio Sarri at the helm.

    The former Napoli coach replaced Antonio Conte and promises to bring with him a more attacking brand of football.

    Something Bakayoko backed up after his first few training sessions under Sarri.

    "He's a very good coach," he said.

    "He wants to play football, he never wants to play long balls.

    "He just wants to attack the goal, score a lot of goals and play an offensive game."
    Betting Preview: place your bet on either side to avoid defeat and earn big
    Both sides are unbeaten in their tune-up ties lately and punters can look forward to seeing any of them continue the impressive form

    Sevilla entertain Benfica at Stadion Letzigrund in a pre-season friendly encounter on Saturday evening.

    Pablo Machin’s men have played two warm-up games thus far in preparation for the upcoming season, they drew with Bournemouth before claiming a 2-0 victory over Real Murcia.

    They will be hoping to earn a morale-boosting victory in this tie backed at (2.20) with Bet365 ahead of their Europa League qualification clash with Neftci -Ujpest on Thursday.

    Both sides have met once which ended in stalemate at the end of full duration and (3.40) is on offer for a repeat in this encounter.

    Rui Vitoria’s side will be coming into this tie on the back of a 1-1 draw with Vitoria Setubal and will be using this game against the Spanish outfit to prepare for their outing in the International Champions Cup where they face heavyweights Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and Olympique Lyon.

    However, for this clash, they have been tagged as slight underdogs at (2.90) with the bet firm.

    Both sides have not tasted defeat in their pre-season friendlies so far and punters can earn big backing either side to avoid defeat at (1.30) with Bet365.

    PUBG Metal Rain Event Returns, Brings Back the Flare Gun

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) on PC sees the return of the Metal Rain event. It's an eight-player, 12-squad mode that's played on the Erangel map. There's a flare gun that if found and used, allows you to call in an armoured UAZ, a four-seater Russian armoured vehicle. This is possible when you use the flare gun out side the play zone. 

    When you're inside the play zone during the PUBG Metal Rain event and you use the flare gun, you get a special care package.

    Familiar elements like regular care packages and the red zone make a comeback in addition to dynamic weather which isn't usually present in traditional Erangel matches. You can check out the PUBG Metal Rain event right now until July 22 at 7pm PT (July 23 at 7:30am IST).

     The mode can played in first and third-person perspectives on North American, European, and Asian servers. Korean, Japanese, Southeast Asia, Oceania, and South America only get this mode in third-person mode.

    And while PUBG Metal Rain is exclusive to PC, that doesn't mean the game doesn't have an audience on other platforms.

    Microsoft announced that PUBG on the Xbox One has over 8 million players and is the "most popular games on the platform since its release as a console launch exclusive in the Xbox Game Preview program". Furthermore, the company also revealed a new bundle for the game featuring the Xbox One X.

     Also included is an Xbox Live Gold subscription, Xbox Game Pass, and of course an Xbox One controller. Microsoft says the Xbox One X PUBG bundle will be "available later this week" for $499 (around Rs. 34,200) "at most major retailers worldwide".

    SPORTEPL: Sadio Mane gets new jersey number at Liverpool

    Senegal forward, Sadio Mane has been given a new jersey number at Liverpool.

    The striker will now wear the No.10 shirt for Liverpool for the 2018-19 season.

    Mane switched from his previous number, 19, which he has worn since joining the club from Southampton in 2016, ahead of the new campaign.

    Mane now takes up the No.10 jersey vacated by Philippe Coutinho upon his move to FC Barcelona in January.

    The No.10 has also been worn by John Barnes, Joe Cole, Luis Garcia, Michael Owen and Andriy Voronin during the Premier League era.

    The forward played for Senegal at the just concluded World Cup in Russia where he scored one goal.

    The English Premier League campaign will kick-start on 11th August 2018 with Liverpool facing West Ham.
    Zlatan Ibrahimovic reveals he offered to play for free at Man Utd
    The Swedish striker says he was not pleased with his level following his comeback from injury, and offered to forego a wage

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he offered to play for free at Manchester United following his comeback from injury.

    The striker sustained a cruciate ligament injury during his first season at the club, during which time he scored 28 goals.

    Ibrahimovic earned a new contract at the club after returning ahead of schedule, but he could not replicate his form pre-injury, and was released in March, allowing him to join LA Galaxy.

    The Swedish striker, who was not a member of his country's squad at the World Cup despite repeated hints that he would end his international retirement if asked, has now taken the unusually humble step of admitting that he was not at the same level when he came back for United.

    Indeed, such was his desire to return to his best, he even offered to play for nothing.

    “The situation was not about having a contract and earning money - it was the opposite. I said, ‘I don't want a salary, you keep it’," he told the BBC.

    "The mind can be ready but the knee was not ready.

    "When I was ready, I said to myself 'I am not there'. They had a Zlatan before. After, I was not ready to be that Zlatan.

    "I was selected in many of the games but I told the coach: 'Listen, I am not ready. I don't want to disappoint you. The respect I have for my team-mates and the coach. Select someone else who can do the job better.' I stood up and did it, even if I am Zlatan."

    Ibrahimovic has already made his own inimitable impact in Los Angeles, and scored twice in his debut, including a phenomenal 35-yard half volley.

    He followed that up with the winner in injury time, heading home to give his side a 4-3 win over LA Football Club, and Ibrahimovic says he knew his first goal was in from the moment he hit it.

    "I knew immediately, this is going in. You know when you get a good hit. When it went in, the whole stadium was crazy," he added.

    "I was feeling I was alive again after a long time doing this recovery. I had been injured but I was there, doing what I love. I am doing it in my way, that I have been doing all my career.

    "I could not describe the moment. All that eight months for that 20 minutes was worth it."
    Ibrahimovic to honour bet and eat fish and chips with Beckham at Wembley

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to attend an England match in a Three Lions shirt at Wembley and eat fish and chips after losing a bet to David Beckham.

    The stakes were high between Ibrahimovic and Beckham before England defeated Sweden in the World Cup quarter-finals.

    Sweden's all-time leading scorer Ibrahimovic proposed that Beckham take the LA Galaxy star to IKEA and buy him any item of his choice for his new Los Angeles mansion if Sweden won unfortunately they lost.
    Spinazzola let go of Juventus Number 7 shirt for Ronaldo Nicknamed 'CR7'

    Leonardo Spinazzola has cheekily suggested he charitably allowed Cristiano Ronaldo to take over Juventus' sought-after number seven shirt.

    Portugal superstar Ronaldo will sport his favourite number for the Bianconeri next season after winger Juan Cuadrado agreed to switch away from the shirt he has worn for the past two seasons.

    Nicknamed 'CR7', Ronaldo made seven his trademark number at Manchester United and later inherited it from Raul at Real Madrid.

    But according to Italy international Spinazzola, who has returned to Turin after a two-season loan spell with Atalanta, it was he who graciously made the sacrifice for the 33-year-old.

    "My number is seven but when I arrived it was taken by Cuadrado, and now I have let Ronaldo take it," the 25-year-old joked with media on Thursday.

    "Six years ago it was impossible to think that Juve would have signed Ronaldo. The club have done an amazing job."

    Despite his sacrifice, Spinazzola is happy with the number he ended up with.

    "I've chosen the number 37, which has brought me luck in the past and hopefully it will continue to do so," he said.

    Spinazzola has been brought back to Allianz Stadium as a potential successor to incumbent left-back Alex Sandro, a reported transfer target of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

    However, the former Perugia player is unlikely to feature until mid-October at the earliest as he recuperates from an anterior cruciate ligament injury sustained in May.
    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hopes for a Premier League title after impressive summer transfer haul

    Having already strengthened his squad this summer, the German boss hopes they are building towards a Premier League title challenge

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hopes his team are on track for a Premier League title challenge after their highly rated additions.

    Klopp has already strengthened his squad with the signings of Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri, while Roma goalkeeper Alisson is close to making a move to Anfield .

    Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have re-signed with the club, seeing speculation over their futures – particularly the former's – ease.
    'They should be more humble and respectful' – Modric hits back at English media
    The Real Madrid star says his side deserved to advance to the World Cup final and hit back at pundits who had written them off

    Luka Modric hit back at the media after Croatia advanced to their first World Cup final with a 2-1 semi-final win over England .

    The Real Madrid midfielder played a key role in the second half as Croatia came from behind to win with goals from Ivan Perisic and Mario Mandzukic turning their fortunes and setting up a final with France.

    Much was made of Croatia's gruelling run to the semi-final with their previous two games going to penalties, but Modric, 32, said the team used talk about them being tired as a motivation.
    Perin wasn't expecting to play alongside Ronaldo at Juventus
    When he agreed a deal to join Juve in June, the goalkeeper was not anticipating he would play alongside the Portugal international

    Mattia Perin was not expecting to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo when he joined Juventus, but he is excited to do so.

    Juve paid Genoa an initial €12 million (£10.6m/$14m) to sign the goalkeeper after Gianluigi Buffon confirmed his 17-year stay at Turin would end after the 2017-18 season.

    On Tuesday the Bianconeri announced they had shelled out €100m (£88m/$117m) more than the fee for Perin to snare five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo from Real Madrid.
    Croatia v England Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions
    In high spirits and full of energy, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Three Lions to overcome a team that has endured successive 120-minute matches

    History beckons for England and Croatia on Wednesday as they go head-to-head at the Luzhniki Stadium for a place in the World Cup final.

    The Three Lions are hoping to bring home a trophy they last won way back in 1966, while their opponents are aiming to reach the final for the first time ever.

    Latest Odds

    Having run out 4-1 and 5-1 winners when the teams met in the World Cup 2010 qualification group, Gareth Southgate’s team are 11/8 (2.38) favourites with dabblebet to take another step to glory with another victory in Moscow.

    However, the Vatreni are yet to lose a game in Russia, and can be backed at 12/5 (3.40)  to maintain that record by coming out on top in this crucial clash.

    Zlatko Dalic’s side have needed penalties to get past both Denmark and Russia in the last two knockout rounds, and can be backed at 21/10 (3.10) to play out another stalemate after 90 minutes here.

    Team News

    Jordan Henderson is expected to start despite previously complaining of a tight hamstring, while Jamie Vardy is still a doubt following the groin injury he sustained against Colombia.

    Sime Vrsaljko has been ruled out after sustaining an injury against Russia, although goalkeeper Danijel Subasic should be fit to play despite tweaking his hamstring in that match.

    England in the ascendancy

    Although English fans may have been hoping to see a less gifted Russia team make it through the penalty shootout and provide arguably easier semi-final opposition, the very fact that it went all the way should work in their favour.

    Having played two 120-minute matches in the space of six days, the Croatian players must be feeling some physical as well as mental fatigue – with key men Luka Modric and Ivan Perisic having started all five games so far.

    In contrast, Southgate’s side enjoyed a relative stroll in the park versus a passive Sweden outfit, and all the key men will still be benefitting from their rest in the final group game against Belgium.


    With confidence and energy high, those 11/8 (2.38) odds seem well worth backing on England making it to their first final in over 50 years with a hard-earned win in Moscow.
    Elliott Management takes control of AC Milan
    The Serie A club are under new ownership after former owner Li Yonghong failed to repay debts

    Elliott Management has taken over control of AC Milan after former owner Li Yonghong failed to repay a €32 million (£28m/$38m) debt.

    The sum, which was borrowed from the hedge-fund of company founder and owner Paul Singer, was required to increase capital last month, and legal action has since been taken to repossesses the arrears.

    Elliott Management Corporation is a company that specialises in distressed debt acquisitions and has pledged to inject €50m as Milan go through the off-field changes.
    Nigerians celebrate as France advance to the World Cup final
    Les Blues will now play in the World Cup final for the third time in 20 years

    France sealed a crucial 1-0 win over Belgium to book their place in the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia on Tuesday evening.

    Samuel Umtiti’s second-half header sent the French side into a frenzy as they look set to win their first World Cup trophy since 1998.

    On their journey to the final, Didier Deschamps' charges defeated Argentina, Uruguay and Belgium, teams who had earlier thrashed Nigeria, Egypt and Tunisia respectively in the group stage of the tournament.
    WhatsApp Will Now Label Forwards in a Bid to Combat Misinformation

    WhatsApp has started rolling out a feature that will indicate to users which messages they receive were forwarded by as is the sender. Seen by Android beta users last month, the new WhatsApp feature essentially adds a 'Forwarded' label to all the forwarded WhatsApp messages you receive to help you determine if your contacts have written the message they sent or if it was originally created by someone else. The new WhatsApp feature, which is now rolling out for both Android and iOS users around the globe, comes as another move by the Facebook-owned company that can help limit the circulation of spam and fake news on its platform that has over 1.5 billion monthly active users worldwide and more than 200 million active users in India.

    "Starting today, WhatsApp will indicate which messages you receive have been forwarded to you," WhatsApp said in a statement announcing the new feature. "This extra context will help make one-on-one and group chats easier to follow [...] WhatsApp cares deeply about your safety. We encourage you to think before sharing messages that were forwarded."

    Last week, a 'Suspicious Link Detection' feature was also spotted on WhatsApp that is designed to highlight the presence of a suspicious link in a message. The app also restricted the dissemination of false messages through a 'Send Messages' permissions feature for groups that allow group admins to limit participants from sending messages.

    How to get the WhatsApp 'Forwarded' feature

    Notably, you need to have the latest WhatsApp version on your device to see the 'Forwarded' label. The label sits on top of the forwarded message to highlight that it hasn't been created afresh for you. Furthermore, there isn't any option to disable the label. This means that users who forward the messages won't be able to remove the label from their side.

    A WhatsApp spokesperson has confirmed Gadgets 360 that the new feature is rolling out now for both Android and iOS users and will be available globally in the next few days. While the feature is indeed help in the cases where a message is being forward using WhatsApp's native message forwarding functionality, it doesn't restrict users from copying-pasting the text and forwarding it as a fresh message, ensuring no 'Forwarded' label is visible in that case.

    To see how the 'Forwarded' label appears, you can select and forward one of the messages available within another WhatsApp chat thread. The feature was previously a part of the WhatsApp beta for Android version 2.18.179 that was released last month. To recall, the feature was first spotted in testing as disabled by default in January, and then seen again in later versions.
    WhatsApp's efforts to combat misinformation

    Considering the ongoing debate over WhatsApp being a source for the circulation of misinformation, the additional of the Forwarded label is a welcome step. It comes just after WhatsApp published advertisements in key Indian newspapers to make people aware of various ways to understand the difference between fake and real news. The company also recently started taking help from local experts to fight misleading information.

    The spread of misinformation on WhatsApp already prompted mob lynching in India and led to the killing of multiple people in many Indian cities. As an aftermath of the recent deaths, the IT Ministry asked WhatsApp to take necessary remedial measures to curb the circulation of fake news through its platform. The ministry had said that the messaging platform "cannot evade accountability and responsibility" when such services are abused by users to spread misinformation. WhatsApp responded to the ministry in a letter that was calling the government, civil society, and technology companies to work together to stop the circulation of false information and provocative content through its platform.

    Mali midfielder Coulibaly couldn't believe Steven Gerrard's Rangers call

    The 22-year-old Malian is the eighth summer signing of new Rangers manager Steven Gerrard who assumed the reigns in May

    Mali midfielder Lassana Coulibaly has spoken about how he thought he was being pranked when Liverpool great Steven Gerrard phoned him with an offer to join Scottish giants Rangers.

    Coulibaly was on Tuesday unveiled as a Rangers player on a season loan deal from French League 1 side Angers.

    With Gerrard at the other end of the line inviting him to join Rangers, an awestruck Coulibaly first thought the call was a hoax before agreeing to a loan move at Ibrox.

    Ahead of Belgium's World Cup semi-final with France, the Belgian ace has cast further doubt over his future plans

    Eden Hazard says it would be a "dream" to play for Real Madrid as speculation over the Belgium star's Chelsea future continues.

    Hazard has inspired Belgium to a place in the World Cup semi-finals, with his side taking on France in St Petersburg on Tuesday.

    Madrid have long been linked with a move for the 27-year-old, while the Primera Division giants could soon need to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

    The Portugal captain is close to joining Serie A champions Juventus, freeing up a spot in Madrid's front line.

    And although Zinedine Zidane stepped down after the Champions League final, to be replaced by Julen Lopetegui, Hazard is still open to joining Madrid.

    "Does Real make me dream less without Zidane?" Hazard told beIN SPORTS.

    "Zidane is someone special, it's true, but I think Real is everyone's dream.

    "Zidane or no Zidane, the white jersey [of Madrid] is special but the blue jersey [of Chelsea] suits me well so it does not bother me if I stay.

    "For now, it's the World Cup. As I have said at least 100 times, I am at Chelsea and for the moment nobody has made me an offer."

    Chelsea find themselves in a complicated position with regards their coaching situation at present, with Antonio Conte taking the first day of pre-season training on Monday, despite the club still seeking to close out a deal.

    Apple Music Now Has More Paying Subscribers Than Spotify in the US: Report

    With more than 20 million paying users in the US, Apple Music has just taken the lead over its rival Spotify in an all-important market, the media reported. Spotify, however, still leads outside of the US, tallying 75 million subscribers as part of its first earnings report in May.

    "The source, a US-based, major distributor, shared a report detailing the subscriber tallies of several streaming music services, including Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, and Sirius XM. That report now ranks Apple Music as first in the US, at least among primarily on-demand music streaming services," the Digital Music News recently reported.

    The data for 2018 also shows that Apple is experiencing a far stronger rate-of-growth in the US, suggesting a wider lead over the coming months. Trial users were not part of the comparison, the report added.

    Apple Music now has more than 45 million subscribers worldwide, with an additional 5-10 million free trial users. The iPhone maker's free trials last about three months while Spotify says it has more than 70 million paying subscribers globally, with roughly 160 million overall users.
    SPORTWorld Cup 2018: Brazil coach, Tite blasts Neymar, team-mates after defeat to Belgium

    Tite, 57, was left ruing his team’s missed opportunities after the final whistle.

    “I thought it was a great match and we had a lot of it, with plenty of possession and a lot of opportunities. But Belgium were more effective in converting their opportunities,” he told reporters during his post-match press conference.

    “They have a lot of top players and finished well. [Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut] Courtois also made a real difference. It was a very impressive game between two games with fantastic technical qualities.

    “For all the pain I feel right now, if you like football, you have to watch this game. It’s going to give you pleasure. If you’re a neutral, you can sit back and say ‘What a match!’ Anyone who appreciates football can see that this was a beautiful game.”

    Android P's Text Magnifier to Make It Easier to Select and Copy Text

    Android P was first announced back in March 2018 with the Developer Preview 1 rolling out for keen app developers. Since then, functionality and features have been steadily announced by Alphabet-owned Google that also revealed Android P's functionality extensively at annual developer conference I/O 2018. In an update on the Android Developers blog on Wednesday, the tech giant announced a new feature for Android P called Magnifier which aims to improve the user experience while selecting text.

    Currently on Android Oreo, users need to long-press or double tap on the word that they want to select, to reveal shortcuts such as Cut, Copy, Select All, Web Search, and Translate. Users then need to drag the two indicators - placed on the left and right of the selected word - and extend them to the sentences or paragraphs that are to be highlighted. While this functionality will remain a part of Android P, a magnifier will be added on top of the text to allow for accurate selection.

    Android P's Text Magnifier to Make It Easier to Select and Copy Text

    "The magnifier helps users precisely position the cursor or the text selection handles by viewing magnified text through a pane that can be dragged over the text," explain Florina Muntenescu, Developer Advocate and Siyamed Sinir, Android Text Technical Lead. "We wanted users to have the same experience across all apps, whether in custom widgets or during custom text-rendering, so we provided a Magnifier widget that can be applied to any view that is attached to a window. The Magnifier widget can provide a zoomed-in version of any view or surface, not just text."

    Talking about magnifying elements in the UI, Android currently offers a magnifier option that lets users zoom onto any page in the Android device's UI using three quick simultaneous taps. This feature can be accessed by going into Settings > Accessibility > Magnification. Using this feature, you can also drag two or more fingers to scroll and pinch two or more fingers to adjust zoom. Zoom functionality cannot be accessed on the keyboard and navigation bar.

    Earlier this month, Google released Android P Developer Preview 4/ Beta 3 with certain bug fixes and software optimisations ahead of the impending Android P public rollout later this year.

     Google also stated that this beta release, which arrives with the July 2018 Android security patch, is as close as it gets to the final build and could be considered a release candidate.
    Cambridge Analytica Nixes Cryptocurrency Project After Facebook Data Fiasco

    Cambridge Analytica Puts ICO on Hold

    Before it became intertwined in the controversy surrounding Facebook’s misuse of data, Cambridge Analytica was planning to raise funds for a new digital currency. According to sources at Reuters, the firm was looking to raise as much as $30 million for their cryptocurrency project.

    Brittany Kaiser, former employee of Cambridge Analytica, stated in an interview that the intended purpose of the firm’s proposed digital currency was to help people secure and control their online data.

    “Who knows more about the usage of personal data than Cambridge Analytica? So why not build a platform that reconstructs the way that works?”

    The irony in Kaiser’s statement is glaringly apparent, seeing how recently the company has been all over headlines for obtaining the personal information of almost 87 million Facebook users.

    A spokesman for the firm went into more detail about the proposed tech:

    “Prior to the Facebook controversy, we were developing a suite of technologies to help individuals reclaim their personal data from corporate entities and to have full transparency and control over how their personal data are used,” the spokesman stated. “We were exploring multiple options for people to manage and monetise their personal data, including blockchain technology.”

    Before Cambridge Analytica’s push into the crypto market was halted, the firm pitched its services to multiple digital currency startups as an ICO. Blockchain technology consultant Jill Carlson was present at one of these meetings. Carlson believed that the company’s pitch was contrary to cryptocurrency’s raison d’être:

    “The way that Cambridge Analytica was talking about it, they were viewing it as a means of being able to basically inflict government control and private corporate control over individuals, which just takes the whole initial premise of this technology and turns it on its head in this very dystopian way,” .

    Her view on Cambridge Analytica’s digital asset almost comes off as an ominous warning. However, even prior to the Facebook fiasco, the firm had received its fair share of criticism. During the 2016 election, the consultancy was hired by President Trump’s campaign to craft political messages for online audiences.

    The future of Cambridge Analytica’s digital currency is unsure, and they are not the only legacy company competing to enter into the crypto market. Firms all over the world are working on their own coin offerings in an attempt to raise capital. This year, organizations have raised $3.5 billion through offerings such as these, according to research firm Autonomous Next.
