World Cup Quarter-finals Take Shape, DeMarcus Cousins Signs with Golden State Giving Warriors 5 All-Star Lineup and South Korean Basketball Players Arrive in Pyongyang
Only European and South American teams have advanced past the Round of 16 portion of the Knockout Phase to the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup. Notably tournament host Russia beat Spain on July 1 in a 1-1 win on penalties. FIFA.com quotes Spain's team reporter Antia Andre on the loss:
"Spain deserved more from the 120 minutes. They controlled the game from the start but hard work by the Russian defenders made their job incredibly difficult. Despite the good first half for La Roja with the own goal, the penalty changed things. Andres Iniesta's introduction also altered the pattern of play, with Spain looking more confident after his entrance. De Gea could not keep out the Russians, while Koke and Aspas were unsuccessful from the spot."
The quarter-finals of the World Cup begin on July 6 with Uruguay vs France and Brazil vs Belgium, and on July 7 Russia faces Croatia and Sweden plays either England or Colombia.
DeMarcus Cousins has signed a one-year, $5.3 million USD contract with NBA champions the Golden State Warriors. According to CBS Sports, Cousins is currently recovering from an Achilles injury and won't be able to play until December. Once on the court, however, Cousins' addition to the team gives them a five All-Star starting lineup.
This follows news that LeBron James has signed a four-year, $153.3 million USD deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Associated Press reports that 50 South Korean basketball players arrived yesterday in Pyongyang for a series of games the two countries have planned.
The South Korean male and female basketball players are expected to play four matches with North Koreans on Wednesday and Thursday. It was not clear whether North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would attend any of the games, but he did make a prominent appearance at a concert put on by South Korean musicians in Pyongyang earlier this year.
