Argentina coach Bauza steps down

Edgardo Bauza has been sacked as coach of Argentina's national team after a poor run of results, the president of the Argentinian Football Association (AFA) said on Monday.

The 59-year-old Bauza was asked to push the team over the edge after a strong spell with San Lorenzo and a short stint with Sao Paulo.

Bauza oversaw eight World Cup qualifiers for the Albiceleste, but after winning just three of those the national side are facing the possibility of failing to reach the 2018 tournament in Russian Federation.

Harden, Rockets are too much
Houston , which has already set a single-season record for 3-point baskets, had its offense going strong in the opening quarter. Both Westbrook and Harden have great MVP cases this season and it appears Morey is heavily backing his guy in the MVP race.

The defeat in the World Cup qualifiers came at the hands of Paraguay, Brazil and Bolivia.

The two-time world champions now sit in fifth with only the top four teams to qualify automatically for Russian Federation 2018, while the fifth-placed nation will play-off against an Oceania opponent.

A fifth place finish for the two-time world champions will see them play an Oceanian side in a play-off. To make things worse, Lionel Messi miss the team's three remaining qualifying matches due to suspension.

Bauza was only hired last August, replacing Tata Martino, who stepped down following the Albiceleste's defeat to Chile on penalties in the Copa America final.

Argentina national team coach Edgardo Bauza has been fired, according to Clarin.

Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli is the leading candidate to replace Bauza, having been heavily linked to taking charge of his native country for the first time.

Sergio Garcia wins playoff, finally dons green jacket
When he spotted commentator Peter Kostis on the side of the green, he walked over to him, and placed Kostis's hand on his chest. Major championships once caused him so much frustration that he publicly declared he could not and would not win one.

While Simeone has, in the past, suggested a part-time job as Argentina coach could be mutually beneficial, Sampaoli's desire to take over on a long-term deal will be enough to ensure the situation does not become a face-off.
