  • Last-gasp Ogbonna stuns Liverpool in FA Cup

    Angelo Ogbonna headed home in stoppage time of extra time as West Ham United stunned a youthful Liverpool team 2-1 in Tuesday's FA Cup fourth-round replay at Upton Park. Philippe Coutinho's clever free-kick had cancelled out Michail Antonio's volleyed opener for West Ham and the game was seconds from a penalty shootout when Dimitri Payet curled a free-kick into the visitors' box from the right and Ogbonna rose at the back post to head in the winner. It was the Italian centre-back's first goal since signing from Juventus last year and it earned Slaven Bilic's side a trip to Blackburn Rovers in the fifth round.

  • North Korea satellite in stable orbit - U.S. official

    By Andrea Shalal WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A satellite launched by North Korea at the weekend has now stabilized in its orbit around the Earth in a step forward from a launch in 2012, a U.S. official and a second source familiar with the matter said on Tuesday. The satellite was initially tumbling in orbit but has now stabilized, making it more successful than a launch in 2012, which failed to achieve a stable orbit, said the first source, a U.S. official who did not want to be identified by name. Martin O’Donnell, a spokesman with the U.S. Strategic Command, said the satellite had been in roughly the same orbit since its launch on Sunday.

  • Fresh blow for Van Gaal as United share price slumps

    Embattled Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal suffered a fresh blow on Monday when the Premier League club's share price dipped to its lowest level in over three years. Van Gaal has been engaged in a battle to hold onto his job for much of a troubled season and that struggle was hardly helped by news that United's share position isn't much healthier than their league status. United's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League were dented on Sunday when Chelsea striker Diego Costa scored in stoppage-time to rescue a 1-1 draw against Van Gaal's team, who are now six points adrift of the top four with 13 matches remaining.
