Portugal edged out host Russia, after Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winner for his team, and Portugal sped past, 1-0. Ronaldo's eight-minute header in Moscow gave Portugal their first win in the tournament. A victory over New Zealand on Saturday clinched the semi-final spot for them.
Head Coach of the Indian Cricket team, Anil Kumble, stepped down from his position, and gave in his resignation. While the Indian team proceeded to the West Indies on Tuesday, coach Kumble stayed behind.
The BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) had informed Kumble that the captain of the team had 'reservations' about his style as a coach and hence,the decision. Earlier, there had been rumours of a rift between the coach and the captain, and the BCCI had also advertised for the coach's job, before the onset of the ICC Champions Trophy, 2017.
