England 2-1 Poland: Harry Maguire scores late winner for England

Sports
Harry Maguire's late winner made it a maximum nine points from three World Cup 2022 qualifiers for England as they overcame Poland at Wembley.Poland presented a much sterner test than the formalities against San Marino and Albania and it looked like England would have to settle for a point until Maguire struck five minutes from time.England's impressive first half brought a deserved lead when Harry Kane scored his 34th international goal from the penalty spot in the 19th minute, following Michal Helik's challenge on Raheem Sterling.And yet England almost paid the price for a largely average performance after the break as Poland, who were without injured world-class striker Robert Lewandowski, equalised when a dreadful error by Manchester City's John Stones saw him concede possession on the...

Exit polls indicate no clear winner in Israeli elections

World
JERUSALEM -- Exit polls indicate there is no clear winner in Tuesday’s Israeli election, leaving Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s fate uncertain and signaling continued political deadlock.The polls on Israel’s three main TV stations showed Netanyahu and his religious and nationalist allies, as well as diverse array of opponents, both falling short of a parliamentary majority.

Manchester United 1-0 West Ham: Scott McTominay scores extra-time winner

Sports
Scott McTominay's well-taken extra-time strike was enough to send Manchester United into the FA Cup quarter-finals at the expense of West Ham.On a bitterly cold night at Old Trafford, the hosts came closest to breaking the deadlock inside 90 minutes when Lukasz Fabianski reacted quickly to turn the ball on to a post after Victor Lindelof's header had taken a huge deflection off Craig Dawson.However, in a game that included a historic concussion substitution, when Issa Diop was replaced at half-time, McTominay had the decisive word.The opportunity was created by Marcus Rashford on his 250th United appearance.Following a break that took United from one penalty area to the other, Rashford flicked a delicate pass into McTominay's path with the outside of his foot and the Scotland midfielder's ...
