PARIS -- Argentina and England played a World Cup match yesterday, which meant that emotions were not in short supply.It's long been this way between these teams, whether in 1966 when England's coach called the opponents "animals" after a near-brawl of a game, or in 1986 when Diego Maradona's infamous "Hand of God" goal lifted the Argentinians.These are memories for a lifetime, but they can be painful.England suffered again yesterday, losing in excruciating fashion penalty kicks after the teams played to a 2-2 tie that extended through 30 minutes of overtime.

LOS ANGELES -- Pete Sampras is upset and offended by statements made by Davis Cup captain John McEnroe and said yesterday that his integrity has been challenged. Two months from now, April 7-9, the United States will play a Davis Cup match in his hometown of Los Angeles, a quarterfinal against the Czech Republic at the Great Western Forum. Yet, he said he is in the dark about his status with McEnroe. "No, he hasn't called," Sampras said. "I want to play. I rearranged my schedule at the start of the year so I could play Davis Cup all year, but I'm a little disappointed, to put it lightly, at some of John's comments."

Last Monday, the defender and challenger committees for America's Cup '95 agreed to make a number of changes in how the Super Bowl of yacht racing is run."We believe this agreement signals the beginning of a new spirit of sportsmanship between the defender and challenger syndicates," America's Cup '95 chairman Frank Hope Jr. said in San Diego. "From a racing perspective, the agreement is designed to make the elimination series a fair test of sailing and design abilities."But the agreement also will eliminate or further regulate some of the side-show activities that have surrounded the Cup for a number of years -- espionage, closed boating compounds, bidding wars for top skippers and crews, etc.The agreement also recommends a centralized location (Commercial Basin)

Soccer has long been known for its one-name goal scorers. Fifty years ago, it was a brilliant Brazilian star everyone called Pele. Today, it's an Argentine artist named Lionel but now known by his last name: Messi. Just saying their names evokes images of magic and trickery. And then there is Wondo. Chris Wondolowski does not elicit the same response from even the most die-hard fan - if they know him at all. He is more mechanic than maestro, a player who was expected to spend his career on the fringes, if not on the bench, until he emerged as a goal-scoring machine.

Before the roar of Friday's international soccer celebration began to fade at M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore officials already were planning for a return match featuring European teams next summer. Mayor Sheila Dixon said Saturday that aside from rush-hour traffic congestion, the match "was an example of our capacity to handle something like this." An enthusiastic crowd announced at 71,203 arrived in the colors of Chelsea (blue) and AC Milan (red and black), replete with horns and high energy levels.

KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany -- Australia shoved, tackled and forearmed Italy at times during yesterday's World Cup match, but it was a play with little contact that set up Italy for its game-winning penalty kick. Only seconds remained in stoppage time when Australia defender Lucas Neill slid into an airborne Fabio Grosso while in the box, causing Grosso to trip over Neill and be awarded a penalty kick. Francesco Totti capitalized on the questionable call by referee Luis Medina and placed the kick just past the reach of Australian goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer for the 1-0 win. Minutes after the match, Australia's players stood motionless on the field staring in the direction of the goal where Totti ended their World Cup run. "We fully dominated against a team that is much more highly ranked than us," Australian coach Guus Hiddink said.
