Argentina Suffers 3-0 Loss to Croatia, Capitals’ Cup-Winning Coach Barry Trotz Hired by Islanders, Rhode Island Signs Sports Betting Budget and Boris Becker’s Passport Accused of Being Fake
Yesterday Argentina suffered a 3-0 loss to Croatia yesterday as Lionel Messi's team failed to secure a win in their second game. Argentina's team reporter Diego Zandrino is quoted on the loss on FIFA.com:
A nightmare! That is what the match became for an Argentina side that lacked both the invention and the desire to turn their night around after falling behind to a costly goalkeeping error. Their hopes of reaching the knockout phase are now hanging by a thread.
Brazil beat Costa Rica 2-0 this morning, earning their first win and punishing the Costa Ricans with their second straight defeat of the tournament.
Barry Trotz, who won coached the Washington Capitals to their first Stanley Cup this year, was hired as head coach of the New York Islanders yesterday. NHL.com quotes Trotz on the new position:
"When you step down you take some chances," Trotz said. "I was obviously pleasantly surprised I got a call almost immediately once word got out in the inner circles. I said, 'I'm in, I want to listen.' ... [Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello] told me about his vision and his plan for his team, what he's already done in a very short period of time, changing a lot of things, changing the culture and all that. I love that. That's what they hired me to do in Washington, change a little bit of the culture, try to win a Stanley Cup. So we're going to try and do the same thing on the Island."
Rhode Island's Gov. Gina Raimondo signed the state's $9.6 billion budget, which approves sports betting, according to Legal Sports Report. The Twin Rivers casinos in Lincoln and Tiverton will be the only establishments to offer single-game sports wagering initially. Rhode Island's budget allocates the "highest percentage of revenue in the nation for sports wagering".
Retired German tennis player Boris Becker's diplomatic passport is fake, according to Central African Republic' foreign minister Charles Armel Doubane, the AP reports. Becker claims that he has been appointed the Central African Republic's attache to the European Union on sporting, cultural and humanitarian affairs. Authorities in the Central African Republic dispute Becker's position:
Presidential spokesman Albert Yaloké Mokpeme said the head of state had never appointed Becker to the post. The presidency has said that "we are not custodians of the physical and moral integrity of this gentleman."
