Duk has been in the headlines after catching Neymar full in the face during his country's World Cup Qualifier against Brazil on Thursday - a blow which caused a gash on his eyebrow to bleed heavily. Many sections of the media accused the 28-year-old of being over-aggressive but the player has justified his actions as part and parcel of the game, and even found time to take a swipe at the Barcelona man.

Hamilton in big title trouble: Awful start allows Rosberg to grab Suzuka win and leave Brit 33 points adrift after sorry week
JOE DOWNES AT SUZUKA: Lewis Hamilton's woeful start allowed Nico Rosberg to coast to victory at the Japanese Grand Prix and edge closer to a maiden world title.

Instead, Saracens raised themselves for a furious late onslaught and George capitalised, crossing the line twice after coming on as a replacement to take his try tally to five in the first six games of this campaign.

Klopp was greeted at the green by chairman of the Holy Trinity bowling club, Eric, and spoke about how a trip to Luton when he was 16 made him aware of the sport.

After Karamoko Dembele made his debut for Celtic's U20 side aged just 13, there's already another wonderkid on the block... and he goes by the name of Mustafa Kapi. The 14-year-old was handed his Galatasaray first-team debut on Saturday, replacing striker Sinan Gunus in the 89th minute of their friendly against Levski Sofia. The Turkish giants travelled to Bulgaria to keep up their match fitness during the international break and maybe bed in a couple of youngsters, but nobody expected Dutch coach Jan Olde Riekerink to play a teenager born in 2002.

OLIVER HOLT: Southgate off to perfect start as he avoids Malta banana skin and proves just because he is polite, he isn't weak
A few minutes before kick-off, just before the England caretaker manager left the home dressing room with his team, the loud-speaker system played an old favourite. ‘Three Lions on a Shirt,’ blared out around the stadium and 20 years in the life of Gareth Southgate fell away to a time when he was walking out here in a kit, not a three-piece suit. Southgate was a member of Terry Venables’ side at Euro 96, the last time there was real excitement or genuine optimism about England’s chances of actually winning a tournament.

ROB DRAPER: Joe Hart is pretty frank about his move to Torino in Serie A this season. He is in the land of Dino Zoff, Gianluigi Buffon and Walter Zenga and is asked whether that may have been a factor in choosing Italy. 'It was but I'm not going to lie,' he says.
