FOOTBALL

GERMAN: Schalke is returning to the Bundesliga after a year of transformation on and off the field.

A humiliating relegation from the first league forced one of Germany’s traditional giants to rebuild his team. Then came the war in Ukraine and Schalke severed ties with Russian state-owned gas company Gazprom, the financial fuel for some of its greatest successes, leaving the club with an uncertain future.

Schalke’s late jump into promotion this season was reflected in Saturday’s match that secured his return to the Bundesliga. Schalke lost 2-0 at halftime against rivals St. Pauli, but recovered and won 3-2.

WORLD CUP: Atlanta United defender Miles Robinson is likely to miss the World Cup for the United States after rupturing Achilles tendons in his left leg during an MLS game.

The team announced that Robinson would undergo surgery after magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the worst-case scenario.

“We are horrified by Miles,” US coach Gregg Berhalter said in a statement. “He confirmed himself as a top player last year and qualified for the World Cup. We will think of him and wish him a successful recovery process. “

Brazil and Argentina have lost their appeals to FIFA and will have to play a World Cup qualifier that was abandoned last year in Sao Paulo due to chaos on the ground caused by a pandemic violation.

In one of the most bizarre scenes during the World Cup qualifiers, Brazilian health officials took to the field minutes after starting last September to challenge the quarantine status of some Argentine players.

Both countries easily qualified for the World Cup as the top two teams in the South American group of 10 nations without having to play an abandoned game.

They took part in the draw for the final tournament last month, which runs from November 21st to December 12th. 18 in Qatar.

However, FIFA’s latest decision means that Brazil and Argentina will certainly have to play their essentially meaningless 18th qualifying match, probably in September.
