Maestro Messi lights up Wembley as Barca sink Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to bounce back from their midweek Champions League defeat to Barcelona this weekend when they welcome Cardiff City to Wembley on Saturday.

Tottenham refused to surrender as Harry Kane pulled a goal back but Messi took centre stage in the second half, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor finding the bottom corner of the net - having hit the post twice - before the superstar swept home a second during the closing stages after Erik Lamela struck for Spurs. Spurs bounced back by winning their last two Premier League matches.

"This guy, what he does on the football pitch, is just ridiculous".

He said he never used the term "babes", but did sometimes call people he liked "chicks" in order to relax them. Turnbull told reporters. "We need to save the ABC - not Emma", Milne said, according to Fairfax.

The Match Day 2 games of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday were highlighted with the masterclass performances from Neymar for PSG and Lionel Messi for Barcelona. Twenty-six minutes later, Messi produced another moment of brilliance with a cross to Luis Suarez that preceded the 20-yard strike from Ivan Rakitic, which doubled the Spanish champions' lead. The first half was extraordinary and we are happy because everything went as we wanted'.

The France and Spurs captain rushed off his line in the second minute but misjudged the weight of Lionel Messi's pass, with Jordi Alba setting up Philippe Coutinho to score in an unguarded goal.

"I'd argue that Burnley have got three goalkeepers who are every bit as good, if not better, than Hugo Lloris". He was unbelievable. When he's in that form he's magic to watch.

After being sent on loan to West Bromwich Albion last season, the injury-prone England forward's Liverpool career looked over. What the boys make of the match plan is extraordinary.

Messi put matters to rest just before full-time after a bad giveaway from the Tottenham defence left the Barca talisman alone with only Lloris to beat and he made no mistake, tucking the ball into the bottom right corner to seal the points.

A late Messi goal sealed a game which was in the balance up until the dying minutes. Everyone who has played against him has said the same thing.

"I've seen a great Messi, with a lot of hunger", Llorente said.

Chinese official: Beijing should target goods needed by US
The Journal report quoted one senior Chinese advisory official saying China would not negotiate "with a gun pointed to its head". American officials say those violate Beijing's market-opening commitments and worry they might erode USA industrial leadership.

The visitors, returning to Wembley for the first time since lifting the Champions League there in 2011, extended their lead in stunning fashion soon after Kane had Spurs' first shot. We were handicapped against Barcelona after conceding after one minute.
