STOCKHOLM, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe scored as France earned a 1-0 win over Sweden in the UEFA Nations League on Saturday.
Mbappe is the seventh PSG player to test positive for COVID-19. The Ligue 1 champions last week reported six confirmed cases, whom French media L'Equipe said are Neymar, Mauro Icardi, Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes and Keylor Navas. All six had holidayed on the Spanish island of Ibiza after the Champions League final against Bayern Munich on August 23.
But things didn't go as organisers may have expected.
Nigerian striker Kingsley Onuegbu took a part in the ceremony for the trip to the 2020 season on Thursday. The 34-year-old displayed the team's new season jersey as one of 12 new comers.
However, it was a day of mixed feelings for local fans because fellow Frenchman Thibaut Pinot fell on the second climb of the day and finished over 25 minutes behind Peters, whose hopes of becoming the first home rider to win the Tour since 1985 have diminished, as he sits around 19 minutes behind on the overall standings.
"I feel like every day I'm on a new journey, and in this tournament in particular and this year," Williams said. "So I feel really good. I feel like I'm on that journey and I'm going in the right direction."
Qingdao stormed to a 4-0 lead after they took victories in mixed doubles, men's singles, women's doubles and women's singles. However, men's doubles young pair Guo Ruohan and Shang Yichen defended some honor for Xiamen as they overcame a one game deficit to beat world champion Liu Yuchen and his partner Guo Junhao 9-11, 11-8, 11-9, 11-9 in the final dual.
In Paris, France came from behind to repeat their triumph in the final of the 2018 World Cup, beating Croatia 4-2, despite the absence of striker Kylian Mbappe.
"For the many, many people who have been asking how I am, this morning I underwent medical checks that revealed a tear of the cruciate ligament in my left knee," he wrote.
Meanwhile, Kenya's world marathon record-holder Brigid Kosgei's track debut ended in disappointment after losing the battle to The Dutch world 1,500m and 10,000m champion Sifan Hassan who went to break the World Hour record after she reached 18,930 meters as the hour elapsed, beating the existing mark of 18,517 meters set by Ethiopia's Dire Tune in 2008.
