After an incredible season and 36 match unbeaten run, Lionel Messi is to be rewarded with the European Golden Boot.
Mohammed Salah may have broken the Premier League’s 38-game goal scoring record — but that still wasn’t enough to land him the European Golden Boot.
A goal in Liverpool’s final match of the season against Brighton saw him make it 32 in the league.
However, that still left him two short of Lionel Messi’s tally of 34 — and the Barcelona man has one more match remaining.
The Argentine is the joint-record holder with old rival Cristiano Ronaldo on four, but will become the outright leader unless something incredible happens next week.
With 29, Ciro Immobile is the top goal scorer in Serie A and still has one match remaining as Lazio host Inter Milan next weekend.But he would need six to deny Messi as even five would only see them share the award.
UNLUCKY! Torres Scores As Atletico Madrid Beat Our Super Eagles 3 – 2 (Watch The Goals Highlight)
Atletico Madrid defeated Nigeria 3-2 in an entertaining friendly encounter played at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium on Tuesday evening.
Goals from Angel Correa, Fernando Torres and Borja Garces denied the Super Eagles B side a victory, despite scoring two top quality goals through Kelechi Nwakali and second-half substitute Usman Mohammed – whose effort evoked memories of country legend Austin Jay Jay Okocha.
Club legend Torres started from the bench with Kevin Gameiro and match MVP Correa leading the line for Atletico while Salisu Yusuf had Lobi Stars’ Kadiri Samad supported by Emem Eduok – from the right flank – in his attack.

What a painful match to lose. The players certainly put in a decent shift. My man of the match is Kelechi Nwakali,

Chelsea Edge Manchester United Out To Claim FA Title
OK, it wasn’t a classic. But should Chelsea care? Nope! They’ve just won the FA Cup for the eighth time in their history! It’s the first cup victory on Conte’s managerial CV. And a first domestic cup defeat in England for Mourinho. Chelsea were the better side in the first half, and defended with great purpose in the second. United only really showed what they could do after the restart.
But chances were at a premium for both sides, and Pogba missed United’s golden opportunity to equalise with that free header in the closing stages. Chelsea were the deserved winners, even if the contest was tight.
