games were played by Italian midfielder Andrea Pirlo in his career. The 38-year-old has announced his retirement from football after stacking up 116 caps for Italy, a 2006 World Cup winner’s medal, two Champions League wins and six Serie A titles. The ex-Milan and Juventus legend’s most recent club was New York City FC in the USA.
points were won by Northern Irish rider Jonathan Rea this season – a new record for the most points scored in a World Superbike season. Rea’s race victory in Qatar, his 16th win of the season, means he has won four points more than Colin Edwards, who has held the record since 2002. Rea sealed his third world championship title in September. He now has 54 career World Superbike race wins, just five behind recordholder Carl Fogarty.
tries were scored by England against Lebanon as they cruised to their first win at this year’s Rugby League World Cup. England won 2910. Their next match is against France on Sunday 12 November.
