Cahill in doubt

SYDNEY - Australia's totemic forward Tim Cahill has not fractured his ankle but is still a doubt for next week's first leg of the World Cup playoff against Honduras, Football Federation Australia said yesterday. He injured the joint in A-League action for Melbourne City on Friday, casting doubt on his fitness for the match in San Pedro Sula on Nov. 10.

PSG rules

PARIS - Edinson Cavani's superb scoring form continued when the Uruguay striker netted a double as Ligue 1 leaders Paris St Germain snatched an easy 5-0 win at Angers yesterday. Cavani struck each side of the interval, as did France striker Kylian Mbappe, while Julian Draxler also found the back of the net to put PSG on 32 points from 12 games.

Barca survives

Paco Alcacer enjoyed a rare outing for Barcelona by scoring twice in the club's 2-1 La Liga win over Sevilla at the Nou Camp yesterday. With second-placed Valencia having strolled to a 3-0 win over Leganes and third-placed Atletico Madrid downing Deportivo La Coruna 1-0 earlier in the day, Barcelona were determined to preserve their four-point lead at the top of the standings.

Crouch's touch

Peter Crouch came off the bench to deny new Leicester City manager Claude Puel a second win in a week as Stoke twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with his club in the Premier League on Saturday. Leicester took the lead in the 33rd minute when Vincente Iborra swept home the ball from a corner to register his first goal in English football.

Cook scores

AFC Bournemouth moved out of the bottom three after a Steve Cook header in the final minute of stoppage time gave them a 1-0 win at Newcastle United in a lively Premier League clash at St James' Park yesterday. Cook capped a late surge by Bournemouth after Marc Pugh had hit the post in the 88th minute.

Liverpool win

LONDON - Liverpool cranked up the pressure on West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic with a 4-1 win at the London Stadium, while Burnley's remarkable start to the Premier League season continued thanks to a 1-0 victory at Southampton yesterday. Mohamed Salah maintained his rich goalscoring form by netting twice.

NZ hits back

LONDON - New Zealand got their European tour off to a winning start when their so-called second-string side beat the Barbarians 31-22 at Twickenham on Saturday in an entertaining match to mark the 125th anniversary of the New Zealand Rugby Union.

Australia victory

YOKOHAMA (Reuters) - Australia were devastating in attack as they brushed aside Japan 63-30 in Yokohama yesterday, adding momentum as they head to Europe to face stiffer opposition in Wales, England and Scotland later this month.
