VIDEO: Nightmare moment for England and Man Utd youngster as he concedes 50-yard own goal

Dean Henderson is away with the England squad at the U20 World Cup in South Korea and endured a moment to forget in his latest outing against Guinea Manchester United youngster Dean Henderson allowed a 50-yard back-pass from Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori to slip past him at the U20 World Cup. The Red Devils goalkeeper was turning out for England in a group stage meeting with Guinea. England held a narrow one-goal lead shortly before the hour mark, but saw that advantage cancelled out in comical fashion. WATCH: Klinsmann's keeping blooper Tomori didn't check on the positioning of his keeper before firing the ball in his direction, leaving Henderson wrong-footed and unable to prevent a remarkable own goal. The nightmare moment ended up costing England two points, as they were held to a 1-1 draw

Tony Romo sure seems to be enjoying his retirement. Aside from the new gig at CBS Sports, Romo has been feted by the Dallas Mavericks, tried (and failed) to qualify for golf’s U.S. Open, and was even celebrated by the Texas Legislature earlier this month. And over the weekend, Romo added a new activity to the list: party DJ. Tony Romo tried on a new hat over the weekend. (AP) More The 37-year-old was at a charity event at the Circle T Ranch in Westlake, near Ft. Worth, when he chose a few songs for the crowd. It was definitely a diverse playlist: Romo played Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a  Prayer”; The Beatles’ “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” and Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl.” [Fantasy Football is open!

Is error-strewn Hart worth the risk? Moyes informed Black Cats owner Ellis Short of his intention to leave the post at a meeting in London on Monday, a day after Sunderland's dismal Premier League season came to a fitting end with a 5-1 thrashing at champions Chelsea. In a statement Short said: "I pursued the services of David Moyes for a considerable period prior to his appointment last summer, which makes the announcement of his departure difficult for everyone concerned.

CLEVELAND – From the bowels of the Quicken Loans Arena to the pressroom podium, people approached LeBron James about his team’s collapse, about his own collapse. These were mostly unheard-of topics during his stretch of three NBA championships and three Finals MVPs in five years, and this postseason had been a dominant run for him and the Cavaliers. Ten wins and no losses to begin the playoffs and the absence of All-Star Isaiah Thomas to possible hip surgery created what’s expected to be an inevitable rematch of Cleveland and Golden State in the NBA Finals. Yet the Boston Celtics are coached sharply and have tenacious players throughout the roster, and they surpassed James on a night his team’s principles went awry and key plays didn’t come from the world’s best player.

Being a baseball broadcaster is a tough job. It’s not easy to be witty and insightful for roughly 3-4 hours nearly every day over the course of a 162 game season. At some point in there, things are going to get chaotic. When you work for the Cincinnati Reds, those questionable moments may come earlier than expected. That’s the only way to explain what happened during Sunday’s 6-4 loss to the Colorado Rockies. During the bottom of the sixth inning, a bird flew into the Reds’ broadcast booth and parked itself on a chair. The bird remained in that spot as the Reds scored three runs, cutting the Rockies lead to 6-4. [Fantasy Football is open! Sign up now] The inning ended, but the bird didn’t budge. At some point during all this craziness, someone decided it would be a good idea to open t

There was to be no final-day title glory for Barcelona, who were dethroned as LaLiga champions even after an action-packed win over Eibar. Barcelona surrendered the LaLiga title to Real Madrid as Luis Enrique's Camp Nou farewell was marked by a thrilling 4-2 come-from-behind victory over 10-man Eibar. The Catalans needed to win and then hope Madrid lost at Malaga in order to secure a third consecutive league championship, but Zinedine Zidane's side held their nerve to prevail 2-0. Barca – seeking a 12th straight top-flight home win – were stunned by Takashi Inui's seventh-minute opener, a fine finish that ricocheted in off the underside of the crossbar. Luis Suarez spurned two glorious chances to level before the interval, with Eibar goalkeeper Yoel helping to preserve a shock lead, whi

Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid secured their 33rd Primera Division title with a 2-0 win over Malaga at La Rosaleda. Real Madrid clinched the LaLiga title for the first time since 2012 with a 2-0 win over Malaga courtesy of goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, rendering Barcelona's comeback victory against Eibar irrelevant. Ronaldo continued his remarkable run of form, scoring his 25th league goal of the season in the second minute at La Rosaleda to take his tally to 14 in his last nine games in all competitions. Benzema doubled Madrid's lead with his 11th league goal of the season to make it 2-0 after 55 minutes and Zinedine Zidane's side, who needed just a point to be crowned champions, had extra cause for celebration by becoming the first in the club's history to score in ev
