Argentina star player Lionel Messi is expected to play in the game versus Panama on Friday after missing his team's win against Chile last Monday due to injury (lower back pains).
Team manager Gerardo Martino told ESPN FC that the forward will be fit and healthy to play and participate in the team's upcoming game. The 28-year-old soccer player injured his back last May 27 during a game versus Honduras.
"Everything has to do with [Messi] being healthy, in a good condition to play the next game," Martino added. The manager explained that Messi had a hard hit during the game against Honduras but noted that he worked to improve his condition even practicing alone. more >>
Tim Tebow is taking on hosting duties for the second season of Fox's "Home Free," and it is about more than just a job.
According to the Heisman-Trophy-winner-turned-motivational speaker, joining the home building competition allows the Christian athlete to highlight those who are changing lives.
"This show is filled with skill, will, strategy, competiveness, heart, so many amazing things. But I think the best thing that it's bigger than the contestants," Tebow said in an MRCTV report from Fox31 Denver. "They're playing for something bigger than themselves and I think that's pretty important. Just the selflessness of people to be able to change lives is pretty awesome." more >>
After NBA MVP Stephen Curry withdrew from the list of basketball players for Team USA for the 2016 Olympics, the dream team still hopes to perform well in Rio with equally talented players.
Citing knee and ankle injuries, the Golden State Warriors star announced earlier this week his decision that he will not be playing for the US team for the Rio Olympics.
In a statement, Curry said the decision was a product of "a great deal of internal thought and several discussions with my family, the Warriors and my representatives."

Following the death of cultural icon Muhammad Ali, Franklin Graham is sharing his personal memories of the boxing champion who visited his father, evangelist Billy Graham, at the family's home in North Carolina. "The world has lost a champion. Muhammad Ali was considered by many as the greatest boxer of all time. His career began during a difficult period in our country with the racial tensions of the 1960s and the Vietnam War.
His outspoken positions caused him to be both loved and hated by some," Graham wrote in a Facebook post about Ali, who died on June 3 at age 74, following a bout of respiratory illness, connected to complications with Parkinson's disease, which he battled for decades.
"I had the privilege of meeting him on several occasions, and he visited at my parents' home in Montreat, North Carolina. Muhammad Ali's father brought him to visit my father Billy Graham because he was concerned over Ali's faith in Islam and was afraid that his son had been led astray," Franklin Graham revealed. more >>
