  • Nothing goes right for hapless Napoli forward Gabbiadini

    Manolo Gabbiadini's rapturous welcome at Napoli seemed a world away on Monday as the hapless forward contemplated a suspension to add to his recent woes after his red card in the 2-1 win at Crotone. Largely confined to a substitutes' role last season when he scored nine goals in all competitions, Gabbiadini was handed an unexpected chance for a starting place when first choice forward Arkadiusz Milik suffered a knee injury while playing for Poland. Gabbiadini, who has won six caps for Italy, has had three attempts in the last week to stake his claim for a place in the team.

    To reduce the risk of sudden death, babies should sleep in the same room as their parents but in their own crib or bassinet for the first year of life, US doctors said. The new policy statement by the American Academy of Pediatrics says babies should sleep on their backs, on a clean surface free of toys and blankets, a guideline that has been in place since the 1990s and has reduced sudden infant deaths by about 50 percent. "Parents should never place the baby on a sofa, couch, or cushioned chair, either alone or sleeping with another person," lead author Rachel Moon said on Monday.
