Demba Ba finally ended his goal drought for Newcastle on Saturday, courtesy of a superb curling effort. The Senegal striker had struggled to find the net ever since his fellow countryman Papiss Cissé had joined the club, but on 54 minutes, the attacker produced a moment of sublime skill to beat Brad Friedel in the Spurs goal.

Amidst a rather strange atmosphere at Old Trafford, where chants of "GB" peppered the proceedings, Stuart Pearce's mixed-bag of players, minus Gareth Bale of course, played out a draw against a decent Senegal side.

Craig Bellamy opened the scoring for the hosts in the first half although Senegal almost drew level after 'keeper Jack Butland made a right balls of his distribution, only for Sadio Mane to fire wide.

As Portugal went out on penalties to Iberian rivals Spain in Donetsk, the question on everyone's lips was why the hell was Cristiano Ronaldo no. 5 on the list of penalty takers for Paulo Bento's losing side? In the end, the superstar didn't even get a chance to take one, as Bruno Alves saw his shot crash off the crossbar before Cesc Fabregas netted the deciding spot-kick (going in off the post).

The Montreal Impact beat the New England Revolution 1-0 at Gillette Stadium tonight thanks to a brilliant goal by Sanna Nyassi in the 61st minute.

It was a pretty drab first half with New England coming closest to scoring as first Tierney and then Sene rattled the woodwork.

Montreal set the tome for the game early when Patrice Bernier was lucky not to be given a straight red card for a brutal tackle on Benny Feilhaber inside the first ten minutes.

If you are looking for bankers to put in an acca then Spurs looks suitable material at 1.53 with Paddy Power to beat West Brom on Saturday (25th August 2012). The Baggies last win at White Hart Lane came in November 1984, since then they have lost six and drawn two of their visits to north London.

Spurs are a top priced 1.53 with Blue Square and Paddy Power to beat West Brom and the stats suggest they will do just that. The Baggies last win at White Hart Lane came in November 1984, since then they have lost six and drawn two of their visits to north London. They also have a poor record in the capital winning just three and losing 22 of their 33 trips to London in the Premier League.

When you sell your two best players during the summer, and let almost all of your most experienced players leave on Bosman's, the fact that AC Milan lost 1-0 at home to newly promoted Sampdoria probably should not be a surprise.

Still nobody gave Sampdoria much of a chance in the San Siro, but the Milan faithful were stunned when
Andrea Costa scored the only goal of the game in the 58th minute from a corner and, although the Rossoneri hit the woodwork twice, their fans made their feelings clear at the final whistle.

The better team, dominant indeed for extended periods. Friedel has a quiet afternoon. That superiority isn't converted into goals. Sure we come close, hit the woodwork maybe, but all the flowing football means little if the chances aren't taken. Time passes, we fade, our opponents take full advantage of rare but significant errors and we are punished, albeit with at least one excellent strike.
