Morocco Eliminated by Ronaldo's Record-Setting Goal, NBA London 2019 Announced and Sports Betting Up and Running in New Jersey
Morocco is the first team eliminated from the World Cup following a 1-0 loss to Portugal this morning. Cristiano Ronaldo scored Portugal's lone goal, his 85th for his country which is the most that any European player has scored in 150 years of international soccer (or football if you prefer). FIFA.com quotes Morocco's team reporter Zineb El Houari on the defeat:
"Morocco will leave the Luzhniki with plenty of regret. They created plenty of opportunities without scoring, due to their lack of cutting edge up front. Renard's 4-3-3 tactic saw plenty of attacking threat, but placing Achraf Hakimi in an unfamiliar left-sided role ultimately proved costly with the Portuguese goal coming from that side. In the end, Portugal took revenge on Morocco for their victory at Mexico 1986."
Elsewhere in the tournament, host country Russia scored a 3-1 victory over Egypt and Senegal claimed the first win for an African country, besting Poland 2-1.
The NBA announced today that the NBA London Game 2019 will feature a regular season game between the Washington Wizards and the New York Knicks. The game will be on Thursday, January 17 of 2019 at the O2 Arena. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver commented on the league's relationship with London.
"We've been playing regular-season match-ups in London for nearly a decade, and over that time the games and the surrounding festivities have grown into the equivalent of an NBA All-Star experience transported to Europe. Fans and partners from across the continent come to celebrate basketball and enjoy the excitement and experience of an NBA game."
Newly legal sports betting is now up and running at Atlantic City's Borgata casino and Monmouth Park in New Jersey. The Associated Press reports that the soon-to-be opened Ocean Resort casino hopes to join them as it seeks a casino license from state gambling regulators today.
The casinos and tracks report their sports betting revenue to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, which will publicly release monthly totals along with traditional casino revenue. The next such report is due for release July 12, and neither the Borgata nor Monmouth would reveal their totals before then.
