SOCCER

England and France will renew their rivalry this weekend.

The two sides are set to meet in the quarter-finals at the World Cup, after winning their respective last 16 ties yesterday.

England beat Senegal 3-0, with Harry Kane netting his first goal of the tournament for the winners.

Kylian Mbappe scored twice for France in their 3-1 victory over Poland to bring his tally at the tournament to five.

Two more quarter-finalists will be confirmed today in Qatar.

Japan - who beat both Germany and Spain in the group stage - face 2018 runners-up Croatia.

That match is underway from 3pm.

From 7, it's Brazil versus Korea Republic.

Neymar is set to return for Brazil, having missed their last two matches through injury.


GAELIC GAMES

Kilmacud Crokes missed out on a unique double yesterday.

Their hurlers' comeback against Ballyhale Shamrocks fell just short in the Leinster decider, with the Kilkenny club winning by 2-22 to 2-19.

But the footballers retained their provincial crown thanks to a 1-12 to eight points win over the Downs of Westmeath.

Elsewhere, Antrim's Dunloy were crowned as the Ulster hurling champions after a 2-12 to 16 points win over Slaughtneil of Derry.

And Galway champions Moycullen won their first ever Connacht senior crown.

Peter Cooke starred for the winners in their 13 points to six defeat of Sligo's Tourlestrane.


GOLF

Norwegian Viktor Hovland won the Hero World Challenge on the PGA tour last night by two shots.

He finished up on 16-under-par after a final round of 69.

Shane Lowry ended on five-over and 18th on the leaderboard.


SNOOKER

37-year-old Gary Wilson won his first ever ranking event last night.

He beat fellow Englishman Joe O'Connor 9-frames-to-2 in the final of the Scottish Open in Edinburgh.
