No Ranieri grudge, says new Leicester man Shakespeare

Craig Shakespeare takes control of his first Champions League tie since being appointed Leicester manager until the end of the season, and names an unchanged team for the third game in a row following victories over Liverpool and Hull. The goal apparently made him the first Jamaican to score in the Champions League, for what that's worth. A 2-1 deficit can be overturned and has to be, if Leicester are to keep the last bit of magic from turning into nostalgia.

The team was down and nearly out in the first leg of their last-16 tie in Spain, losing 2-0 until a late away goal by Jamie Vardy gave the Foxes hope.

The squad subsequently spent time training and relaxing in Dubai, before Shakespeare was confirmed as manager until the end of the season on Sunday. The Spanish side will start off as favorites but The Foxes will be confident too.

Goals from Wes Morgan and Marc Albrighton either side of halftime proved sufficient to see the Foxes through, though only courtesy of Steven N'Zonzi penalty miss late in the second half. However, Leicester have the vital away goal that could be the difference should their offensive form continue.

Pass-rusher DeMarcus Ware retires citing 'long-term health and quality of life'
ESPN's Field Yates reports ex-Cowboys and Broncos OLB DeMarcus Ware met with the Rams over the weekend before deciding to retire. The 34-year-old pass rusher took to Twitter Monday to announce his decision, saying he has "decided to accept the unknown".

As for Sevilla, this was a chastening experience, summed up by the sight of Jorge Sampaoli, their manager, being sent to the stands not long after Samir Nasri received a red card following an altercation with Vardy.

And if it wasn't for the Leicester keeper, then the Foxes would have been waving goodbye to their remarkable Champions League campaign.

As for Leicester, life just gets better in its first season in Europe's top club competition.

Despite Leicester having the best of the first half, it was visitors Sevilla who had the best early chance; a precise move which ended with Schmeichel saving well from Nasri.

He said although the revised order issued on Monday was narrower in scope, it still could be challenged on constitutional grounds. Following Trump's initial ban, Iraqi lawmakers had voted for a travel ban on U.S. citizens. "This is effectively a Muslim ban".

"I trust that Sampaoli will say yes to the offer we have made him to extend his contract for one more year, but we're focused on a complicated week", he told radio station Cadena Ser on Tuesday.

Nasri getting sent off and an absolutely unbelievable penalty save from Kasper Schmeichel were the final nails in the coffin for Sevilla. The celebrations were matched when Schmeichel saved N'Zonzi's spot-kick. Over the last two years they have risen to the big occasion whether it has been a relegation battle or a Premier League title challenge so there should be no issues there.

However, Sevilla are yet to lose on the road in the Champions League this term (W1 D2); keeping clean sheets all three of those games.
