Waves Radio Sportsdesk - Every week day

Friday 20th July

 

FOOTBALL

Aberdeen are in friendly action tonight as they continue their build up to next week’s Europa League qualifier against Burnley. This evening’s opposition are one of Dons boss Derek McInnes’s former clubs West Brom who he player for three seasons making 88 appearances. The Baggies were relegated from the English Premiership last season. The home side will be able to call on the services of Dominic Ball who returned to the club this week on a season long loan. The game at Pittodrie kicks off at 7.30pm.

 

Peterhead play their first home match of the season as they welcome Stirling Albion to Balmoor Stadium in the League Cup Group stage. The Blue Toon started their campaign with a penalty shootout win over Brechin City before going down to a 3 nil midweek defeat to Dunfermilne. Cove Rangers are also in action they travel to face Cowdenbeath the team that denied the Highland League Champions a place in the Scottish League in an ill tempered play off at the end of last season.

 

AC Milan won't be banned from playing in the Europa League this season - after winning an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport. UEFA had barred the Italian side from competing for breaking financial fair play rules. CAS agree they were breached but say the punishment "was not proportionate". It's been referred back to European football's governing body to choose a different sanction.

 

France have won the World Cup for a second time. They've beaten Croatia 4-2 in a dramatic final in Moscow. Manchester United's Paul Pogba was among the scorers, as was exciting teenager Kylian Mbappe. They also benefited from an own goal, as well as a penalty awarded after a VAR review.

 

GOLF

The US PGA Championship will be moved from August to May to avoid clashing with the opening of the American football fixtures.

From next year what had traditionally been the final or the 4 majors will now follow the US Masters which will now mean that the Open Championship which is held in July will become the last major of the year.

TENNIS

Novak Djokovic will go back into the top 10 of the tennis world rankings later after sealing his fourth Wimbledon men's singles title. The former number one denied South African Kevin Anderson a first Grand Slam triumph after beating him in three sets in the final on Centre Court. There was no British success - after Jamie Murray's straight sets defeat in the mixed doubles decider alongside Victoria Azarenka.
