Ryder Cup in Paris and a Spartak Moscow game: Where will John Terry turn up next?

John Terry has made something of a habit of turning up in the most unexpected places over the years.

Indeed, having politely rejected a move to Spartak Moscow over Instagram just a week or two ago, Terry showed up out of the blue to watch the Russian side in action against Rostov on Sunday.

The ex-Chelsea captain was seen mingling with Spartak fans outside the Otkrytiye Arena before kick-off.

For the record, Spartak went on to lose 1-0 in front of their home crowd, many of whom were perhaps left...

Spartak statues show how football can be more than life and death

Those who've watched matches at Moscow's Spartak Stadium - Brazil play Serbia there on June 27 - might have noticed a set of four statues next to the goalpost on the left of the dugouts. It's of four men; two are sitting on a bench, two standing next to them. It's an unusual setting for a monument - right by the playing area, taking up precious real estate reserved for photographers.

But this is no ordinary monument: It's a tribute to the Starostin brothers - Nikolai, Aleksandr, Andrey and Pyotr...

Russia's four World Cup players to watch: Golovin, Zobnin, Kuzyaev, Miranchuk

As the host nation, all eyes will be on Russia. The home side at the World Cup has never lost an opening match, so can Cherchesov's men keep the tradition going?

World Cup hosts Russia are approaching the tournament in the wake of some truly shambolic preparations.

Fans are pessimistic, and there is a fear that Stanislav Cherchesov's side will join South Africa and become the second World Cup hosts to fail to qualify from their group. Not everything is bleak though. While defence is their most problematic area, Cherchesov has numerous rising midfielders at his disposal.

Here are four youngsters who could save Russia this summer.

1. Aleksandr Golovin, CSKA...


Spartak Moscow condemned by anti-racism groups after offensive tweet

Spartak Moscow have been condemned after an offensive social media message was posted on the club's official Twitter account.

The Russian side tweeted a video of black players training in the sun with the caption translating as: "See how the chocolate melt in the sun."

Piara Powar, chief of anti-discriminatory body Fare, told BBC Sport: "Racism is one of the biggest issues Russia faces in the year they host the World Cup. References like this show how some minorities are seen by some in the...

Early goal onslaught sees Liverpool cruise into Champions League last 16

Philippe Coutinho and Liverpool scored early and never looked back, putting seven past Spartak Moscow on their way to winning Group E.

LIVERPOOL, England -- Three thoughts on Liverpool's 7-0 win vs. Spartak Moscow in the UEFA Champions League.

1. Liverpool cruise into the Round of 16

Liverpool became the fourth Premier League team to qualify for the Champions League knockout stage as group winners by cruising to an emphatic 7-0 victory against Spartak Moscow at Anfield.

Only Paris Saint-Germain, with 25, have scored more group-stage goals than Liverpool's 23 this season and Jurgen Klopp's team showed again that they will be a threat...

Spartak's Massimo Carrera: Everything I am is thanks to Antonio Conte

Massimo Carrera won the title at Spartak in his first year.

Massimo Carrera became manager of Spartak Moscow by chance. After serving as Antonio Conte's assistant at Juventus and Italy for five years, he was invited to the Moscow club to help out the defence. He accepted the challenge, but Spartak soon crashed out of the Europa League after losing to AEK Larnaca in the qualifiers and coach Dmitri Alenichev resigned. Only then, after the club failed to strike a deal with Kurban Berdyev, did president Leonid Fedun decide to give the Italian the chance.
