The judicial officer is looking into meetings Infantino had with the Swiss Attorney-General, Michael Lauber.Lauber and Infantino have already denied any wrongdoing.“There was and is absolutely no reason to open any investigation because nothing remotely criminal has happened and there is nothing at all to suggest any form of criminal wrongdoing,” said FIFA in a statement on Sunday.It said the meetings were not secret and took place in public places such as hotels and restaurants, chosen by the Swiss Attorney-General’s office.“FIFA and the FIFA President categorically deny any implication or suggestion that the FIFA President would ever have attempted to exert any form of improper influence on the Swiss Federal Prosecutor,” it added. FIFA said special prosecutor Stefan Keller, who opened the proceedings, has “presented no serious elements or legal basis for the opening of any investigation and lacks any detail as to the substance of the case.”It added: “The FIFA President will continue to fully assume his functions within FIFA and fulfil his duties and will continue to cooperate with the authorities in Switzerland and around the world.”Reuters/NAN.Tags: FIFAgianni infantinoMichael LauberStefan Keller
Former Chairman of the Ghana Football Association, Lepowura M.N.D Jawula and veteran coah, Sam Hemans Arday are cautioning the Black Stars not to consider victory against Lesotho in this weekend’s World Cup qualifier a done deal as they could end up laughing at the wrong side of their mouths.While Lepowura is urging the Stars to be guided by history, Coach Arday says Lesotho will just be happy to upset the Stars apple cart.The Stars are away to the Likuena (Crocodiles) of Lesotho in their last but one game in these qualifiers, but are talks of that match being an easy deal for the Ghanaians with more focus rather on the very last game against Zambia in September.Lepowura Jawula, who led the the Stars to a qualifying match in Lesotho during his tenure, says it will be dangerous for the Stars to consider the Likuena as pushovers.Zambia currently lead the group standings with 10 points, one ahead of the Stars and with Zambia also tipped as favourites in their home match against Sudan on Saturday, a win for the Stars will help mantain the pressure on the Chipolopolos with that one-point for their September clash.“On paper it is predictable that the winner of Group D will be decided by the in the final match between Ghana and Zambia and so most people may be carried away by that. “ Yes it is important to talk about the Zambia game in September, but of what importance will that match be if the Stars slipped against Lesotho and dropped valuable points while the Zambians are able to scale the Sudan hurdle?“ It is therefore important for the Stars to also consider the game in Maseru a difficult, but must-win one to keep the momentum for the Zambia return leg.”Lepowura Jawula cautioned the Stars to be reminded of how Ghana struggled and had to come from behind to draw 3-3 with Lesotho in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Maseru in 2001 to know that tough times lied ahead on Sunday.Though Charles Amoah gave Ghana the lead in that game, Lesotho took a commanding 3-1 lead. The Stars were saved the blushes from a 85th and 90th minute strikes from Nana Arhin-Duah.“Lesotho are dangerous at home and the Stars must not be carried away by their 7-0 win in the first encounter and go into the game as if they can override them again. They may not score as many goals but they are capable of being an impediment.“Lesotho know they have nothing to lose in the outcome of this encounter, but they will be thrilled to scupperbe credited with the fact that they will be the ones to hamper the chances of the Stars with a revenge for the 7-0 beating they received in Kumasi in the opening game. They will even be out to also help the cause of their neighbours, Zambia who currently lead and could do with such a big favour as Ghana dropping valuable points. “Unlike other blocks where no one wants to do the neighbour a favour, alliance is very strong in Southern Africa and that could motivate Lesotho to give Ghana a very tough time on Sunday,” Lepowura Jawula said.Coach Sam Arday, who has also coached the Stars, also gave similar advise and stressed the need for Kwasi Appiah to adopt a strategy that will force the Likuena to open up.“ Having conceded as many as seven goals against Ghana and four against Zambia last week, they will likely play a very defensive game which could frustrate the Stars but Kwasi Appiah must adopt a style that will hold them to their own game at least for the first 15 minutes which will then force them to open up,” Coach Arday advised.
Although comprehensively beaten by Novak Djokovic on the Monte Carlo semi-finals, claycourt king Rafa Nadal believes he is on the right path as his beloved French Open looms.The Spaniard, looking to clinch a record-extending 10th title at Roland Garros, lost 6-3 6-3 to the world number one in the European claycourt season opener. The third seed’s defence was sometimes impressive but he never managed to take control of the contest.But Nadal, who has had an below par start to the season, notably losing to Fernando Verdasco in the third round at the Miami Masters, was not worried. “The way that I played yesterday (against David Ferrer) and for moments today is the way that I want to play,” he told a news conference. “Just with more matches playing like this, I will be enough confident to play.”I go into the next tournament with the feeling that I made a big improvement in my game. I hope this tournament is a key moment for my season.”Nadal, who usually wears down his opponents, especially on clay, the slowest surface, admitted he had trouble coping with the physicality of the game.He took a great start, enjoying a 2-0 lead in the opener and setting up a break point in the third game, before gradually fading away. “I get a little bit tired and a little bit too early. Then when you get little bit tired, you play a little bit shorter. Then it is impossible against him, no?” he explained.”If I’m able to play like the beginning for three hours, I can do it, then it is a different story, no?”–

McKissic, DET @ DEN64Malcolm Brown, LAR @ SF65Javorius Allen, NYG @ WAS Dalvin Cook’s going to steal a lot of the Week 16 RB rankings headlines, but it’s really a simple situation. Be it Cook, Alexander Mattison or Mike Boone starting against the Packers on Monday Night Football, you’ll want to play the starter in your fantasy championships. So, let’s move on and get into some other questions when it comes to our Week 16 fantasy RB PPR rankings.After watching James Conner and the Steelers on Sunday Night Football in Week 15, you might have a lot of questions about his usage. So do we. But he averaged 5.3 yards per carry, and as long as he doesn’t do anything to bother his shoulder, we’d expect him to get more runs in Week 16 against the Jets and keep up a similar efficiency. He’s also the type of guy who can catch at least a few passes, so you can rely on him in PPR. You can also count on Todd Gurley against a 49ers defense that just allowed Devonta Freeman some running room. Injuries have depleted that San Francisco group, and Gurley also catches passes and should be better than that bad matchup. WEEK 16 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerDevin Singletary, on the other hand, worries us. You could look at it one of two ways. One: Joe Mixon rushed for more than 60 yards in the first quarter against New England in Week 15. Two: New England has a great defense. There is a third wrinkle thrown in — Frank Gore ran for 109 yards against the Pats in Week 4 when Singletary was hurt, but there’s enough issues with the Buffalo offense as a whole to expect struggles and give reason to stay away from Singletary.WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Wide receiver | Tight endIf you choose to bench Singletary, you’ll need another option. Picking up Mattison and/or Boone from Minnesota is one approach. You could also see if Kerryon Johnson (knee) is available, as he looks likely to be activated from Injured Reserve and had shown an improved pass-catching ability early in the season. There’s also PPR favorite Patrick Laird from Miami, who should have a chance to score against the Bengals in Week 16 and should also get his usual four or five catches.WEEK 16 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y!
