Johnson entered the pitch to a chorus of boos from home supporters.By Eurosport | World of Sport – Sat, Mar 21, 2015 19:10 GMT
Sunderland midfielder Adam Johnson was booed after coming on as a substitute against West Ham at Upton Park on Saturday.
The 27-year-old returned to training earlier this week after a club suspension was lifted which had been imposed following his arrest on suspicion of sexual activity with a girl under 16.
But newly-appointed Black Cats coach Dick Advocaat revealed the winger was available for Saturday's trip to West Ham and he came on as a substitute for Steven Fletcher on 74 minutes during the Premier League match.
Johnson was released on police bail, which was extended to 23 April.Read More »from Adam Johnson makes return for Sunderland against West Ham

Gary Lineker likes a rubbish joke on Twitter. This much is clear. Yet, astonishingly, some users took him at his word when getting a bit angry over something he tweeted on Saturday.
This was the tweet in question, a blindingly obvious and facile crack about Giroud's form and the England national side - or so you might think.
There is absolutely no way anyone could actually think that Lineker, one of the country's most famous football experts, would get this wrong.

Gumbau produced an excellent backheel finish which looped over the goalkeeper.By Eurosport | World of Sport – Sat, Mar 21, 2015 18:34 GMT
Gerard Gumbau is considered one of Barcelona's biggest prospects and showed exactly why with this ingenious finish for the club's B side on Saturday.
Renowned among the La Masia set-up as a skilful and attack-minded central midfielder who has a knack for scoring free-kicks, Gumbau exemplified his qualities by scoring a wonderful goal against Alcoron.
The 20-year-old's relegation-threatened side were 2-1 down and had 10 men on the pitch due to a sending off, but Gumbau met a corner with a sublime backheel free kick which looped over the goalkeeper and into the net.
He's been likened to SergioRead More »from Barcelona youngster Gerard Gumbau scores fantastic back-heel goal Alcoron
Torres showed a flash of brilliance to score the opener for Atletico against Getafe.By Eurosport | World of Sport – Sat, Mar 21, 2015 17:34 GMT
Fernando Torres may not be the same player he was five years ago but this goal proves he's still capable of playing at the highest level.
The Spanish striker scored his first La Liga goal for almost eight years after just three minutes in Saturday's 2-0 win over Getafe.
Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has only picked Torres a handful of times since bringing him back for a second spell at the Vicente Calderón, with his most notable goalscoring performances coming in the Copa Del Rey against Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Torres' goal against Getafe was his first league strike since 2007.Read More »from Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres scores first La Liga goal since May 2007
The 24-year-old left-back will be hoping to break his way into the Palace XI with moments like this.By Eurosport | World of Sport – Sat, Mar 21, 2015 16:05 GMT
Pape Souare may have only been playing at Selhurst Park for less than two months but he certainly showed his commitment to the Crystal Palace cause with this courageous piece of improvisation.
The Senegalese defender joined Palace in January and made his second start in the Eagles' Premier League clash against Stoke on Saturday.
Palace boss Alan Pardew will certainly have been impressed by Souare's bravery in the first half - when he dived on the floor to keep the ball in play and find a nearby team-mate, all at the same time as he was being hounded by Stoke forward Mame Diouf.

Referee Neil Swarbrick appeared to send off the wrong player in another case of mistaken identity.By Eurosport | World of Sport – Sat, Mar 21, 2015 15:10 GMT
Referee Neil Swarbrick has attracted unwelcome headlines after he appeared to send off the wrong West Brom player in just the second minute of their 3-0 Premier League defeat to Manchester City.
It was a disastrous start for the Baggies as defender Gareth McAuley was shown the red card following a foul by Craig Dawson on Wilfried Bony on the edge of the penalty area.
According to BT Sport commentator Darren Fletcher, the referee told a reporter at half-time that it was indeed a case of mistaken identity with West Brom boss Tony Pulis clearly livid with the decision.

He's scored 17 goals this season and continues to entertain Barcelona fans with his sensational goalscoring form alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
Neymar has been preparing for Sunday's El Clasico against Real Madrid in a rather relaxed manner — by doing keepy-uppys inside his kitchen.
The 23-year-old, wearing a pair of bicycle shorts and Nike socks, showed off his skills while a friend could be seen doing some a calisthenics and weights workout in the window reflection.
Nice work, Neymar!

This quite extraordinary piece of film showing a group of skiers first being buried by an avalanche, and subsequently rescued, is over five minutes long.

The footage was shared by James Mort, who was skiing with friends in Les Crosets, Switerzland, when he was caught up in an avalanche. Buried alive, he thought he would never see daylight again - but thankfully, his friends managed to rescue him.
