There is nothing Lionel Messi craves more than winning a trophy with Argentina but his side's haphazard performance in the 2-0 Copa America defeat by Colombia on Saturday laid bare the difficulty of the task he faces. Messi, who turns 32 later this month and is running out of chances to lift a trophy with his country, had warned that Argentina were far from favourites to win this Copa America after losing the finals in 2015 and 2016 to Chile on penalties.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba suggested on Sunday that he could be open to a move away from the Premier League side, telling reporters in Tokyo that now "could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else".

Hearts of Oak's clash with Asante Kotoko undoubtedly headlines the semi-final fixtures of the Ghana Special Competition on Sunday. Ashanti Gold are set to face Karela United in the other last-four match but unsurprisingly the tie has been drowned out by the one involving Ghana's two biggest clubs Hearts and Kotoko at the Accra Sports Stadium.
