junio, todas las noches y hasta el amanecer —que sucede
alrededor de las 3:30 am— las calles de Moscú se llenan de
aficionados contentos o tristes, o esperanzados según sea
el caso de su selección. Pero esta noche fue diferente. Los
aficionados, miles de aficionados, que no eran mexicanos
festejaban en la Plaza Roja, comentando el partido. Se
mostraban verdaderamente contentos y era en particular
por un asunto: el triunfo mexicano.  Sorprendida la Fifa, con
un "Wow" que tuiteó en su cuenta oficial. Sorprendido
México también, sobre todo después de tanto desbarajuste
con la organización y la estrategia del técnico, Juan Carlos

Patrick. Sponsor GoDaddy unveiled this morning on social
media platforms the No. 13 Chevrolet that Patrick will drive in
the 102nd Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor
Oil in May, in what she has announced will be the last com-
petitive race of her groundbreaking career. It will bring the
first woman to lead the crown jewel of Indy car racing full
circle to conclude her racing at the venue that launched her
stardom.  Patrick and the Ed Carpenter Racing entry em-
blazoned with the GoDaddy logo shared center stage
Monday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a photo/video
shoot ahead of today’s launch. The bright green car is re-
miniscent of the one she is most remembered for during a
seven-year Verizon IndyCar Series career from 2005-11
before she ventured to stock cars.  Gazing at the car,
decked in her matching green firesuit, Patrick sensed the
authenticity of the moment.  “It’s pretty damn real, it’s com-
pletely real,” said Patrick, who turned 36 on March 25.

2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ after defeating Croatia 4-2
in a thoroughly entertaining Final at the Luzhniki Stadium in
Moscow in what was a fitting end to an outstanding
tournament.  Despite Croatia having the majority of
possession in the opening stages, France took the lead in
somewhat fortuitous circumstances. Antoine Griezmann's
lofted free kick from the French right was nodded into his
own net by Mario Mandzukic.

Ivan Perisic levelled with a calm effort from the edge of the
penalty area, but he would turn from hero to villain. A cross
from the French right-hand side was handled by the Croatia
No4, with a penalty awarded after a VAR review.  After the
interval, France increased their lead through Paul Pogba,
whose performances in the tournament deserved a goal in

against Arturo Reyes, advancing Bogere’s record to 31-1
(20KO’s).  Both fighters took the first few rounds to warm-
up, Bogere was patient, while Santos remained calm, sizing
Bogere up. Bogere kept a steady pace the entire fight
peppering jabs to Reyes body, constantly staying in po-
sition to strike. Going into the final round, Bogere picked
up the momentum, striking Reyes and pinning him against
the ropes enabling Bogere to land several jabs and com-
binations.  “I am so thankful for this opportunity and getting
the victory. I am not 100% where I want to be, but I feel like
I am getting closer to where I need to be to get to that cham-
pionship level. This fight I felt stronger, faster, and it
showed in the ring,” says Bogere.  “This fight I came in
heavier, which made it harder for me to move around like I
am used to,” Reyes said. “It was difficult for me to attack,
he was the better fighter tonight. Next time around, I have
to take camp more seriously and lose the weight so I don’t
have this issue again.”  The always exciting, Las Vegas’
favorite Cameron Krael, headlined the co-main event vs.
