    When the island of Madeira on Wednesday renamed its airport in honor of its hometown hero Cristiano Ronaldo, all eyes were expected to be on the four-time world player of the year who is adored not only for his soccer skills but also his model looks. "I defy you not to feel better after viewing this picture of Cristiano Ronaldo alongside his portrait bust," wrote one Twitter user, Tom Sutcliffe (@tds153). "That hideous Ronaldo statue is going to be a meme in 5,4,3...," posted @Agave310.

    Antoine Griezmann headed the ball into the net and was in full celebration mode with his France teammates when referee Felix Swayer pinned a finger into his left ear to block out the stadium noise. An assistant in front of a bank of monitors was assessing replays and had some bad news for Griezmann. ''The subjective decisions should be made by the on-field referee because they have got the feel for the game,'' Mike Riley, general manager of English refereeing organization, told The Associated Press.

Dempsey was part of an influx of MLS players contributing during the latest round of qualifying for next year's World Cup in Russia.
