The deadline-day signing struck in the 39th minute to ensure the Rams stopped a run of four successive league defeats. The high-flying Magpies could have been ahead before Miller scored as David Rozehnal missed from close range after being set up by Michael Owen following good work by James Milner, who broke away from a Derby corner. But Newcastle paid the price when Rams goalkeeper Stephen Bywater launched a long kick downfield that was touched on to Miller, who rifled a spectacular shot past Steve Harper from 25 yards. #FCBarcelona #VineFCB Join the team.

The 35-year-old, who just renewed his contract with the Bianconeri until June 2016, has played a major part in the Azzurri senior team for over a decade, even helping his country win the 2006 World Cup in Germany, but he admits that the time has come for him to give other players a chance to prove themselves. Pirlo spoke during a press conference at Casa Azzurri on Wednesday about Italy’s main competition and their chances of succeeding in Brazil, while also commenting on his role in the Azzurri line up and the talent possessed by national team team-mate Marco Verratti. “Juventus renewal?

Run In Rain by Maruf Rayhan. ‘Argentina in the final would be Brazil’s worst nightmare’ In 1950 Uruguay beat Brazil to win the World Cup with the famous ‘Maracanazo’ and the images were seen all over the world.

‘Argentina in the final would be Brazil’s worst nightmare’

If Brazil reach the final this time and have to play Argentina, those memories will come flooding back. The worst thing that can happen to Brazil is to have to face Argentina next Sunday. It’s the worst possible scenario for them in a final because there would be 40,000 Argentines in the stadium, in what would be a home match for Brazil, and that could generate a negative psychological state for them amid an adverse result or situation in the game. Brazil need to beat Germany first and Argentina have to get past Netherlands. Those games are evenly balanced, 50 per cent, but if Argentina get to the final, they’ll win it – especially if they play Brazil.

Argentina looked much more balanced against Belgium and played much closer together, which allowed them to defend better as a group. They are up against a great rival in Netherlands, though.

International team maps nearly 200,000 global glaciers in quest for sea rise answers

The team mapped and catalogued some 198,000 glaciers around the world as part of the massive Randolph Glacier Inventory, or RGI, to better understand rising seas over the coming decades as anthropogenic greenhouse gases heat the planet. Led by CU-Boulder Professor Tad Pfeffer and Trent University Professor Graham Cogley, the team included 74 scientists from 18 countries, most working on an unpaid, volunteer basis.
