FT - Arsenal 7-3 Newcastle United - Video Highlights

Arsenal and Newcastle United played out a crazy 10-goal match at the Emirates Stadium with the Gunners scoring 4 times in the last 15 minutes to run out 7-3 winners.

Theo Walcott swept Arsenal in front but Demba Ba equalised with a deflected free-kick.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's low shot put Arsenal 2-1 ahead afgter 51 minutes, but Sylvain Marveaux tapped in soon afterwards to level, before Lukas Podolski nodded home for Arsenal to regain the lead.

Ba levelled again, only for Walcott to score twice more, either side of a brace from substitute Olivier Giroud.

Giroud hit the bar as Arsenal pushed for an eighth, but the result was secure and Arsenal extended their winning run to four games.

Here are 12 minutes of video highlights taken from an Arabic feed - and although I can't understand a word the comentator is saying I think that it's a definate improvement on ESPN's Tommy Smythe

Five young internationals sign new contracts with Arsenal

Arsenal Football Club announced that five of its young internationals have today signed new long-term contracts.

The quintet of Kieran Gibbs (23), Carl Jenkinson (20), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (19), Aaron Ramsey (21) and Jack Wilshere (20), who are all full internationals, and between them have already made more than 350 first-team appearances for the Gunners, have all committed their long-term futures to Arsenal.

Midfielder Ramsey has played 24 times for Wales and has also captained the side while the other four players who have put pen to paper on new deals, are all full England internationals.

Defender Jenkinson is the most recent to win his first cap, making his full England debut in November in the friendly international in Sweden. Defender Gibbs was a regular under-21 international and has now won two England caps, with midfielder Wilshere representing the Three Lions on nine occasions.

Manager Arsène Wenger said: “We are delighted that these five young players have all signed new long-term contracts. The plan is to build a team around a strong basis of young players, in order to get them to develop their talent at the Club."

Corinthians beat Chelsea 1-0 to lift Club World Cup

BRAZILIAN club Corinthians have won the Club World Cup in Japan, overcoming European champions Chelsea 1-0 in an untidy match.

The match at the 68,000-capacity International Stadium in Yokohama was frenetic, with several chances at both ends, but much of the action was down to individual skills and defensive mistakes rather than flowing team play.

Striker Guerrero got the only goal of the game for Corinthians in the 69th minute heading in from close range - and the Sao Paulo club secured its second intercontinental title - it won the FIFA Club World Championship in 2000.

Chelsea's Fernando Torres missed the best chance to equalise when he shot straight at the goalkeeper from the edge of the six-yard box with only four minutes to go. Torres had the ball in the net in injury time, but it was ruled offside and Corinthians held on.


CONCACAF champion Monterrey of Mexico took third place by defeating Egypt's Al Ahly 2-0 through goals from Jesus Corona and Cesar Delgado.

College Football Bowl Season Kicks Off with Arizona-Nevada Clash

It’s the most wonderful time of year again, NCAA football bowl season, and college football’s finest are coming up with their best ways of striking it rich in the hardware department before programs retire for the offseason.

Kicking the festivities off are Nevada and Arizona in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl this Saturday.

Bet on college football at Bovada Sportsbook and get a free 50% Bonus.

Although the early sportsbook odds are heavily in Arizona’s favor (with a 9.5-point spread), the Nevada Wolf Pack generated enough momentum in the first half of the season to turn some heads. Whether they can capitalize on that, as opposed to the 1-4 finish they ended with, is what will determine how well balanced the matchup is come the weekend.

The Arizona Wildcats, in contrast, were more consistent playing in the Pac-12, and Arizona did manage to pick on the #9 ranked USC Trojans amid the Trojans infamous free fall. That win, along with another against #18 Oklahoma State and a 7-5 record overall, tilts the scales in Arizona’s favor heading into the matchup.

The Gildan New Mexico Bowl ushers in the beginning of a blissful month of NCAA line action.

Think you know how it will all unfold? Then get your NCAA football odds and BCS futures at Bovada.
