Gregg Berhalter's side whimpered into the World Cup as its final friendly before the tournament ending in a goalless draw with Saudi Aarabia. The USMNT once again struggled to find clear-cut chance and managed just two shots on target in Berhalter's final tune up. The stalemate comes just days after a troubling 2-0 defeat against Japan in Dusseldorf, Germany last Friday. The US were dealt a pair of injury scares during the match, first when Borussia Dortmund attacker Gio Reyna subbed out and went straight to the locker room, with what was later reportedly deemed as a precautionary move due to muscle tightness, followed by Inter Miami CF right back DeAndre Yedlin after a crunching tackle. The result will have raise concerns for Berhalter and Co with the next stop, Qatar.

Howard, 43, made the comments on CBS Sports' podcast 'In Soccer We Trust' on Tuesday. He added that the US has to 'manage' the game against England and collect points from other group B games.

Phil Mickelson, the driving force among PGA Tour players in the rival LIV Golf series, and three other players asked a federal judge Tuesday to remove their names from the antitrust lawsuit against the PGA Tour. Talor Gooch, Hudson Swafford and Ian Poulter filed separately to have their names removed. That leaves only three players - Bryson DeChambeau, Peter Uihlein and Matt Jones - and Saudi-funded LIV Golf as plaintiffs in the lawsuit filed in early August. The trial is not scheduled to begin until January 2024. Mickelson's decision was not a surprise. He had said two weeks ago to SI.com that he no longer needed to be involved in the lawsuit now that LIV Golf has joined as a plaintiff.

ENGLAND'S WORLD CUP SQUAD LADDER: So that's it. England's final two competitive international fixtures before the Qatar World Cup are done and dusted. England's entertaining 3-3 draw against Germany at Wembley on Monday, three days after their disappointing 1-0 defeat against Italy in Milan in the Nations League, provided the final chance for players to impress manager Gareth Southgate. The Three Lions boss will name his 26-man squad for the winter tournament on November 13, a little more than six weeks away. Of course, players can still play their way into - or out of - contention via their showings at club level, in the Premier League or otherwise, but given how much Southgate values performances in international games, late 'bolters' may be limited. So who is currently on the plane, at the departure gate, and set to be watching at home? Luke Shaw is on the rise, Harry Maguire may well still make the squad, while Trent Alexander-Arnold and Fikayo Tomori will be sweating over their places. Below, Sportsmail looks at the top 40 potential risers and fallers in the Three Lions squad in our definitive World Cup squad ladder.

NEW For the England manager and his players, that's it for now. Goodbye. The next time they see each other will be in the third week of November, six days before the start of the World Cup in Qatar.

Manchester United summer target Benjamin Sesko scores a wonder goal for Slovenia to show the Red Devils what they're missing... after the rising star agreed to join RB Leipzig rather than moving to Old Trafford

Manchester United summer transfer target Benjamin Sesko showed exactly what the Red Devils are missing out on when he scored a wonder goal for Slovenia against Sweden on Tuesday night. United showed significant interest in the 19-year-old during the recent transfer window, but he has opted to join RB Leipzig next summer instead, and is currently playing in his final season at Red Bull Salzburg. Despite not turning 20 until next May, Sesko has already established himself in the Slovenian national team, and he scored his fourth goal for his country in spectacular fashion.

Heading into the match, Scotland knew that they needed just a point to seal promotion, but they started nervously and were grateful to see Andriy Yarmolenko blast over from just six yards out.

NEW Rampant Brazil destroyed 10-man Tunisia 5-1 in a friendly on Tuesday with Raphinha scoring twice and setting up another goal in their last game before the World Cup.

The hosts needed to avoid defeat to stay up and led 2-0 after strikes from John Egan and Michael Obafema. Stephen Kenny's side however collapsed late on and conceded two quick goals.

The forwards can't finish, the defenders are error-prone and there's a palpable feeling the Gareth Southgate era has peaked. But with optimism in worryingly short supply less than two months out from a World Cup, Jude Bellingham looks set to be England's shining light in Qatar. If this week's Nations League games against Italy and Germany were an audition to see whether he was ready to start at a major tournament, the 19-year-old passed it with flying colours.

Milton Neves, a 71-year-old presenter, sparked fury from Luiz as he tweeted a clip of Lehmann celebrating a goal by jumping and turning her back. He has since deleted the post. The video which has been shared on social media and appears to zoom in on her backside. Neves posted the video with the caption 'watch and comment', prompting an angry retort from Luiz. The Brazilian star - who confirmed in November that he was in a relationship with Lehmann, a key member of Villa's women's team - slammed Neves as 'disrespectful'.

The super-rich Premier League side made two offers this summer worth £40m and £45m, the first of which Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers said 'might just cover three-quarters of his left leg'.

Mauricio Pochettino is currently spending his time between London and Spain following his departure from Paris Saint-Germain earlier this summer and he was at Wembley on Monday.

Fans of both teams will be able to buy tickets as soon as October 28. The fixture between the two rivals has potential to set a new MLS attendance record (roughly 74.5k fans) as it can seat up to 92,542 people.

Harry Maguire looks like a 'startled bunny' who needs to cut his losses at Manchester United and start afresh in his career, according to Jamie Carragher. The 29-year-old was one of England's star performers during their run to the European Championship final last year but finds himself in a slump for both club and country. He was jeered by England fans at Wembley when his name was read out prior to Monday night's Nations League encounter with Germany. Maguire then conceded a penalty before losing the ball in the lead-up to Germany's second goal in the 3-3 draw, putting his place in Gareth Southgate's World Cup line-up in serious jeopardy.

Daniel Faalele is the latest Aussie to make a splash in the NFL, delivering a dominant performance that had Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson gushing with praise on Sunday.

Giants suffer a double blow during defeat to the Cowboys as No. 1 wide receiver Sterling Shepard pulls up with non-contact injury while Daniel Jones throws an interception on the final play

The New York Giants' night went from bad to worse Monday as No.1 wide receiver Sterling Shepard pulled up injured during their defeat to the Dallas Cowboys.   On the Giants final offensive snap pf the game Shepard suffered a non-contact injury that saw him taken to the locker room on the medical cart. Sterling was running a route on the opposite side of the field from where Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs caught the game clinching interception. 

Following Sunday's loss to the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Dorsey threw a tantrum in the coaches box. The previous week Brady threw a tablet on the sidelines during a game.

In wiping out Joseph Parker on Saturday night, Joe Joyce flexed his muscles as a dark horse in the heavyweight title picture and the first in line for a crack at world honours next year. Joyce, who claimed the 15th straight win of his career and 14th by knockout, made a serious statement by becoming the first man to stop Parker, the former WBO champion, inside the distance. The 37-year-old's granite chin was on display once again at Manchester Arena, where he brushed off shots that would floor most mere mortals before closing the show with a chopping left hand in round 11. That victory keeps him as mandatory challenger for the WBO title, a belt currently held by Oleksandr Usyk - his former opponent down in the amateur ranks. But with Usyk on the cusp of an undisputed showdown with WBC champion Tyson Fury, is Joyce likely to get his shot next?

Edwards, 21, said he was 'willing to do whatever it take to make it right' after posting a video earlier this month in which he calls a group of shirtless men 'queer a** n****s' on Instagram.

Germany failed to win over their national press in Monday's draw with England at Wembley, where their two-goal collapse left the country's outlets fearing the worst ahead of the World Cup.

Everton have confirmed that the paperwork for Allan's deal has been completed and that Brazilian midfielder will transfer to Al Wahda for an undisclosed fee.

ADAM SHERGOLD AT WEMBLEY: For 12 heady minutes, we were transported back to Euro 2020 and England's glorious run. Ecstatic England fans danced in the aisles at Wembley and hugged one another as the goals flew one after another past Germany goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen. For the first time all evening, Wembley came alive. It had been a subdued atmosphere, somewhere between a Nations League relegation wake and a theatre of apathy, but now the stadium was on its feet, roaring England on. But then Nick Pope spilled, Havertz tapped home, the Germans rescued themselves as they usually do and the mood inside Wembley was punctured like a balloon. The nation was brought back down to earth and the reality hit home again. There are more questions than answers with this England team that has weirdly declined since losing to Italy in the Euro final last year.

MARTIN SAMUEL - CHIEF SPORTS WRITER: Why does football need Netflix anyway? Why does it need Sky, for that matter, or any streaming service to air its product? Why can't it go it alone?

The backup became the first undrafted QB to win each of his first three NFL starts and throw for 750+ yards over those starts since Kurt Warner in 1999 as Dallas beat the New York Giants Monday night.

With Bruno Martins Indi expected to miss the World Cup in Qatar this winter, Louis van Gaal is seeking alternative solutions at centre back and he decided to give Tyrell Malacia a trial in the role.

'We're human. That's what happens': Bills offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey says he's 'going to learn from' reaction to his viral MELTDOWN in Miami loss... but stops short of apologizing 

Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey didn't offer an apology for his viral, on-camera meltdown at the end of Sunday's loss in Miami, but he did say he's 'going to learn' from reaction to the incident. 'We're human, and that's what happens,' Dorsey said during Monday's Zoom call with reporters. 'I don't ever want to take the passion out of the game. And we're in this to win football games for the Bills, for our fans. But it's something I'm going to learn from and make sure to correct going forward.' Though the sound was off, a CBS camera positioned in the booth captured Dorsey's volatile eruption in a 7-second clip that ended when someone placed their hand over the lens.

'Phenomenon' Gianluigi Donnarumma pulls off a stunning TRIPLE save to help Italy book Nations League finals spot... with the PSG keeper crediting 'Mother Nature' for inspiring his moment of magic in Budapest

Gianluigi Donnarumma credited his stunning triple save against Hungary to 'Mother Nature' as Italy booked their place in the Nations League finals. Roberto Mancini's side ran out 2-0 winners in Budapest after goals from Giacomo Raspadori and Federico Dimarco. But it was Donnarumma that took most of the plaudits, particularly after one move early in the second half where he produced a marvellous triple save. 

The pair were forced off on international duty during Holland's 2-0 win against Poland on Thursday, with De Jong replaced at half-time and Depay limping off seven minutes into the second half.

Knowing the sport inside out, Dillian Whyte is well aware that there is a lot of posturing on both sides of the Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua camps but he has made it known he is ready to fight AJ again.

Since leaving the Parc des Princes, Paredes has opened up on his relationship - or lack of - with Mbappe, insisting he is not one to talk about it given there was no connection between them.

RIATH AL-SAMARRAI: It has become accepted wisdom that the US will head into the match in Rome as strong favourites, irrespective of the weighting given to home advantage by recent history. For that proposition, consider what the European captain Luke Donald told Sportsmail earlier this month: 'They should be favourites. We have been underdogs many times over the past 30 years and found a way through, so there is nothing wrong with being the underdog, because that mentality can be quite powerful.'

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW BY OLIVER SALT: A buoyant Joe Joyce is confident he would inflict more punishment on Oleksandr Usyk than Anthony Joshua managed in his recent defeats against the Ukrainian. Joyce, 37, maintained his place at the front of the heavyweight queue by destroying Joseph Parker on Saturday night, when a chopping left hook wiped the former world champion out in round 11. By toppling Parker, the Juggernaut flexed his muscles as the dark horse of the division and ensured he will be first in line for a crack at world honours as mandatory for Usyk's WBO crown. Yet Usyk, who also holds the WBA 'Super' and IBF straps, is holding out for an undisputed showdown with WBC champion Tyson Fury next after beating Joshua for a second time last month.

Stones started a counter-attack for Gareth Southgate's side by making an interception on the edge of his own penalty box and then looked to get up the pitch but quickly pulled up.

Rumors have circulated all summer, that Crowder was available for trade. ESPN's Brian Windhurst reported that the Suns were 'very active,' in searching for potential trade partners for the forward.

Almada, who is the most expensive player in MLS history, came off the bench on Friday to replace Papu Gomez in the 54th minute for Argentina in the team's 3-0 win against Honduras - two months before Qatar.

Buffalo Bills fan wearing Josh Allen jersey is kicked in the face during wild brawl with Miami Dolphins fans in stadium parking lot

It appears that one Buffalo Bills fan had an extra long game day Sunday, following the Bills' 21-19 loss to the Miami Dolphins. A video circulating shows a brawl taking place as cars attempt to leave the parking lot outside of Hard Rock Stadium A Bills fan wearing a Josh Allen jersey can be seen being kicked in the head, while he was jumped during a brawl outside the stadium.

The two YouTubers turned boxers have a long history of supporting one another at their respective events, but Logan appears to have put family aside as he puts down a stunning gauntlet on his YouTube channel.

James Harden claims he's dropped 100 pounds since last season, but it's anyone's guess if the Philadelphia 76ers star was being serious or not. The former MVP cracked up teammate Joel Embiid with the claim at Monday's media day, but did so with a straight face. When asked how much weight he lost, Harden deadpanned: '100 pounds. Tweet that.' Furthermore, his other answers did not betray any hint of humor. 'This last year and half, I really wasn't healthy enough to put the proper work in like I'm used to,' Harden said, referencing a frequent criticism he's faced in recent years. 'This summer was huge for me in that aspect.'

At 0-0 and after a positive first half, the defender was caught trying to play out of defence and was dispossessed by Jamal Musiala before brining down his opponent for a penalty.

Jonathan David COVERS Nike logo on his jersey after scoring for Canada - as nation's players continue to fume over decision to make them the ONLY team without a new kit for their first World Cup in 36 years 

Canada striker Jonathan David has continued the controversy surrounding Nike's decision to not produce a new kit for the World Cup by covering the logo after a goal vs. Qatar. David doubled Canada's lead in Austria, covering the Nike logo with his right hand in their 2-0 victory over the World Cup hosts. The Maple Leafs are the only team heading to the Middle East without a newly, especially designed kit, which, according to Nike is due to Canada being on a 'different kit development cycle.'

JAPAN 2-0 USA: Daichi Kamada broke the deadlock with a fine first-time finish in the 24th minute and Kaoru Mitoma sealed a comfortable victory with a late goal.

Iran, England's first World Cup group stage opponents, showed that Gareth Southgate's players face a stiff challenge 58 days from now, as they beat a strong Uruguay side.
