Barcelona star's Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez have tremendous chemistry together. We see it on the pitch nearly weekend. That superb chemistry was on display on Sunday as Barcelona rolled at Eibar. Up 1-0 in the second half thanks to a goal from Denis Suarez, Messi put the team up 2-0 on 50 minutes after combing with Luis Suarez. Check out this piece of work where he finds Suarez, who returns with a cross, which Messi puts away: A great goal. It's as if they don't need to look. They know where the other one is going to be at all times, and they make it look easy.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said he will not stand in the way of captain Wayne Rooney should he express a desire to leave the club and join the Chinese Super League. Rooney, 31, became United's all-time record goalscorer when he netted a last-minute equaliser against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on 21 January, overtaking Sir Bobby Charlton's tally of 249 goals for the club. Mourinho said he would like to continue working with Rooney over the next few seasons but that he would understand if the England international opted to make a big-money move to China.
In a curious twist even for this occasionally erratic soccer tournament, the African Cup of Nations was targeted by hackers on Saturday, with a group claiming to be Russian saying they had "taken down" the tournament's official website in a protest against what they called host country Gabon's dictatorial president. The Confederation of African Football's site was not working when Ghana became the second team at the tournament after Senegal to qualify for the quarterfinals with a narrow 1-0 win over Mali. Egypt, returning to the African Cup after missing the last three, then beat Uganda 1-0 with an 89th-minute goal from Abdallah Said to be the team best-placed to join Ghana in the quarterfinals from Group D.
