Suarez's exit after six seasons and 198 goals with the Blaugrana prompted his teammate and close friend Lionel Messi to publicly criticize the club as he bid an emotional farewell on social media.
TEHRAN, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) on Friday dismissed the complaint by Saudi Arabia's Al Nassr soccer team against Iran's Persepolis after the semi-final match of the AFC Champions League.
"My eyes are on the crown heading to Gdynia, I want to win back my world half title but I know the challenge ahead especially when you know the field is strong, but I believe we have the best squad which will enable us win the championship," Jepchirchir told Xinhua on Friday.
Nadal played calmly and confidently, just like he did in the previous six rounds, during which he didn't drop a set.

Having thrown away a lead three times against underdogs Turkey (3-3) seems to indicate a continuation of the team's winless 2020 record.

Inspired by Shao Ting and Zhang Wanglai, Sichuan rode on a 17-0 run midway through the first quarter to set the tone en route to an overwhelming victory.
Shanxi trailed as many as 15 points in the first half and strived to cut the deficit to 42-40 before the interval. Led by Chinese internationals Liu Jiacen and Wutongtong, Shanxi came back with a 44-33 second half.
After being well restrained for three quarters, Wu revived and scored on consecutive layups. The game was effectively over after Liu's jumper that gave Shanxi an 11-point margin with two minutes left.
"We made full preparation for this match, and restrained their main attackers quite well," said Inner Mongolia coach Zheng Wei.
