World Cup ace Kylian Mbappe 'couldn't care less' about the Ballon d'Or

World Cup ace Kylian Mbappe 'couldn't care less' about the Ballon d'Or

Alli and his gang face Croatia in the second semi-final in Moscow on Wednesday night, and Alli knows England have a far-from-straightforward task as they bid to emulate the World Cup-winning heroes of 1966.

Croatia needed extra time and penalties to overcome Denmark and Russian Federation before outlasting England in another marathon knockout-stage match.

They're young, they're brash and they're collectively worth a billion dollars. "We're all behind one flag, we're all behind one team". But when Gary Lineker equalised with 10 minutes to go, I was convinced that was it.

The 19-year-old has also been suggested as a contender for the Ballon d'Or, having become the first teenager since Pele to score a couple of times in a World Cup game.

Phil has assured us that this is all a bit of fun and that he's not trying to exploit his pet to get rich - and we of course believe him.

Williams back in Wimbledon semi-finals
The 36-year-old faces Italian world number 52 Camila Giorgi on Tuesday for a place in the semi-finals. She has won 19 straight matches at the All England Club and will appear in her 11th semifinal.


Prime Minister Charles Michel tweeted: "Bravo, Red Devils, for your performances and for having thrilled us all the way to the semi-finals". We will give this final match everything.

But she said, this was Belgium, where the beer flows well and people look out for each other: "Among us Belgians, we support each other massively. It was hard to take two years ago, and we do not want a repeat of that".

Elite foreign divers and Thai Navy SEALs extracted the final batch of four boys, plus the 25-year-old coach, via a treacherous escape route that required them to squeeze through narrow, water-filled tunnels in darkness. "We already managed a set piece like this in the quarterfinals, it worked perfectly. I didn't feel like I was playing as well as I should have been, especially in the first half".
