The great Gerd Müller, Valentino Rossi magic and paralympic fame | Sports

1) Former Germany and Bayern Munich striker Gerd Müller died last weekend at the age of 75, which aroused great admiration for a player who is considered to be one of the all-time top scorers.

Here’s an interesting clip from the AP archives of Müller’s unveiling to the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in March 1979 – the tall man generally looks unkind to be there. In 1974 “Der Bomber” scored the winning goal in a World Cup final and two in the European Cup final for Bayern. Last season, Robert Lewandowski surpassed Müller’s record of 40 Bundesliga goals. Here’s a comparison between the two, and here’s our video obituary.

2) This weekend it’s Leeds United versus Everton, a game that features many classic duels from the annals of history. Here’s a notable 4-4 Goodison Park draw from the 1999-00 season, with a double from the lesser-known Michael Bridges and a late equalizer from Everton’s David Weir. Here is David Moyes’ Everton, who beat Leeds in 2003 with a hat trick from Steve Watson and a goal from Big Duncan Ferguson.

3) The 2020 Paralympic Games begin next week in Tokyo. Get ready for the action with a highlight role of classic moments from all time and the best of the 2012 London Games and the 2016 Paralympics in Rio.

4) It is exactly 68 years ago that England won the Ashes in the oval in 1953, ending an endless 27-year wait for a series win at home. With four draws in the first four tests, the fifth and final game was extended to six days to guarantee a result. You can watch a report from the last day on the thoroughly exciting UK Pathé YouTube channel.

5) After tumbling down a row or two to get a big hit at the Hundred, this cricket fan at Headlingley manages to catch his cell phone that falls out of his pocket before he kinks the rest of his beer. Everything in about five seconds.

6) Another anniversary: ​​121 years have passed since the first and only appearance of cricket at the Olympic Games. Unfortunately, the cameras didn’t capture the action at the Vélodrome de Vincennes at the 1900 Games, but here’s a video about forgotten Olympic events.

1) Valentino Rossi recently announced his intention to retire and as germinate pointed out that he deserves some love in our summaries. Here is the MotoGP legend who notoriously clashes with Marc Márquez. In 2009, Rossi managed a famous last corner overtaking maneuver to defeat his teammate Jorge Lorenzo. Here are 10 of the Italian’s best moments with the Yamaha team.

2) George Best in Fulham, next to Rodney Marsh and Bobby Moore. Uff!

3) Yankees versus Red Sox. Field of dreams. Kevin Costner. And you couldn’t have written a better game. A walk-off homer with two runs to snap the game for a run in a 17-run thriller. Cue tears and dropped jaws everywhere.
