Shakhtar beats Manchester City to reach last 16

Shakhtar beats Manchester City to reach last 16

The Ukrainian side's Portuguese manager Fonseca had promised to dress up as Zorro if he got his team to the last 16 - and so he did.

Shakhtar ended Manchester City's 22-match unbeaten run on Wednesday, scoring a pair of first half goals and holding on to win 2-1 in Ukraine.

"This is the funniest press conference I've given in my entire life, everyone laughs and is happy", said Fonseca, wearing the hat and mask like the character created in 1919 by Johnston McCulley.

Instagram is testing a standalone app for direct messaging
The app is now available today in six countries: Chile, Israel , Italy , Portugal, Turkey, and Uruguay, on both, iOS and Android. As of April 2017, Instagram Direct, still married to the Instagram app, had around 375 million active monthly users.

In freezing temperatures against a Shakhtar team which only needed a draw to be sure of qualifying, City struggled to cope with rapid counterattacks by the Ukrainian side's Brazilian forwards.

Teenager Phil Foden was given his full debut, becoming the youngest Englishman to start a UEFA Champions League game, with Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane, Ederson and Fernandinho the only regular starters included, and City's lack of cohesion proved costly.

Shakhtar faced a tough task making it out of the group ahead of Serie A high-fliers Napoli, whose 2-1 loss to Feyenoord capped a miserable night for the Italians.

Pope concerned by United States move to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital
Trump is expected to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital on Wednesday and begin preparations to move the U.S. "I can not silence my deep concern over the situation that has emerged in recent days".

Pep Guardiola's men topped the group with 15 points from a possible 18.

"You can not expect and all the season I've said many times, we are not going to win all the games".

"Tonight we played an nearly ideal game".

Bob Sutton downplays absence of Marcus Peters vs. Raiders
The Raiders typically have brought out the best in Peters, who has two of his 17 career interceptions against his hometown team. The Broncos haven't won a game since Week 3, that's eight losses in a row, and it doesn't look like they'll win anytime soon.
