Fed Raises Interest Rate by a quarter point
The Hang Seng in Hong Kong dropped 1.0 percent to 25,621.26 and Shanghai's Composite index edged 0.1 percent lower to 3,128.21. However, the actual path of the federal funds rate will depend on the economic outlook as informed by incoming data.

Mexico hasn't played a side in the top ten of FIFA's rankings since Chile defeated El Tri 7-0 last summer in the Copa America Centenario, and Portugal represents a significant challenge for Osorio's team. "We could have been more aggressive". It came off some lovely passing from the hosts, with Glushakov lifting the ball over the goalkeeper and off the right post while a insane scramble at that post took place.

Russian Federation were on the front foot early and had two chances cleared off the line in the opening 10 minutes. Infantino congratulated Russian Federation with its victory in the first match.

While Germany are resting their senior players for the tournament, the Confederations Cup will benefit from the star appeal of Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

High winds to make final round of US Open interesting
Harman, who had begun the day in a four-way tie for the lead, carded a five-under-par 67 which included six birdies and one bogey. Open at Erin Hills Golf Course just might be the one where one of them would break through for his first major championship.
