back They were being dined and wined in the White House and now you say ‘go to hell Pakistanis because you are nurturing these people’" he was quoted as saying by the state-run Associated Press of Pakistan US president Donald Trump had in Augustcriticised Pakistan for its support to terror groups saying it receives billions in US aid but continues to harbour militants According to The Times of India Asif made an impassioned defence of his country lamented its slide into extremism and blamed the rise of terrorist elements in Pakistan in the last 20 years in the United States File image of Khawaja Asif AFP Asif also mentioned how Pakistan had stood firmly with the US during the war against the erstwhile USSR in Afghanistan which he thinks was wrong as they were ‘used and discarded’ Pakistan is ready to work with the US for effective management of the Afghan border to stop terrorist infiltration and to facilitate a peace settlement in Afghanistan he said Speaking at the forum Asif said that there was no military solution to the festering conflict in Afghanistan "Scapegoating Pakistan for all the Afghan ills is neither fair nor accurate This will only help forces that we

quietened crisis talk after back-to-back defeats as Marco Asensio added to his collection of wonder strikes in a 3-0 victory over Las Palmas at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday Victory cuts third-placed Real’s deficit on Barcelona at the top of La Liga back to eight points However it was another off night for Madrid’s strikers as Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema were held scoreless as Casemiro Isco and 21-year-old Asensio provided the killer touch "They are the first ones that aren’t happy" said Real boss Zinedine Zidane of Ronaldo and Benzema’s goal droughts Real Madrid players celebrate a goal against Las Palmas Real Madrid won 3-0 AP "The important thing is the work that they do and the chances we create "Today Isco Asensio and Casemiro scored and soon Cristiano and Karim will We need to remain calm" Benzema has been fiercely criticised for his role as Real lost to promoted Girona last weekend and at Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League on Wednesday And the level of discontent with the Frenchman was in evidence as he was jeered by the home faithful inside the first five minutes when he failed to slot past Raul Lizoain after being played clean through on goal by Ronaldo Both Ronaldo and Benzema have only one La Liga goal each to their name so far this season and it was the World Player of the Year who had Real’s next three efforts as he blasted into the side-netting curled a shot just wide and then placed a header from close range too close to Lizoain "We know that Cristiano is happier when he scores" added Zidane "We are all convinced that (at the end of the season) he is the one that will make the difference" Madrid had to wait until four minutes before half-time to break the deadlock when Casemiro grabbed Real’s first headed goal of the season from a corner A fifth straight league defeat since he took charge leaves Las Palmas coach and former Valencia boss Pako Ayestaran’s job already in doubt with a two-week international break to come The visitors had a penalty shout early in the second-half but on-loan Atletico Madrid winger Vitolo went to ground too easily despite a slight pull of his shirt by Casemiro A booking would have ruled Casemiro out of the Madrid derby against Atletico in two weeks’ time and he was quickly replaced after Asensio secured the three points in stunning fashion Asensio has made a habit of netting in spectacular fashion in his first 18 months at Madrid and pounced on a loose ball 30 yards from goal to rifle a shot that rose all the way on its trajectory into the top corner Ronaldo fired inches over twice more but whilst his luck remained out in front of goal he did provide an enticing cross from which Isco slotted home at the back post for Madrid’s third Elsewhere Villarreal’s unbeaten league run since Javier Calleja took charge in September continued as Nicola Sansone came off the bench to grab both goals in a 2-0 win over Malaga to move the Yellow Submarine up to fifth Real Sociedad were also comfortable 3-1 winners over Eibar However their Basque rivals Athletic Bilbao’s slump show no signs of abating as they conceded three times in the opening 26 minutes to lose 3-1 at Celta Vigo with Iago Aspas netting twice for the hosts Athletic have now won just once in their last eight La Liga games with Jose Angel Ziganda struggling to follow in the footsteps of Barcelona boss

captain Sergio Ramos says French teen striker Kylian Mbappe will become a welcome addition for the reigning Champions League and La Liga champions should he decide to leave Monaco The 18 year-old forward is wanted by Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane with the Spanish giants poised to make him one of the most expensive players of all time in a move that could cost around $211 million (180 million) Ramos was adamant Mbappe has the qualities to become of the best in the world File image of Kylian Mbappe AFP "It’s not a decision for me but Mbappe is a great prospect There are not young players around like him We have an important year ahead of us and already have excellent players" Ramos said ahead of Saturday’s meeting with arch-rivals Barcelona in Miami "But it’s money which moves football and people can pay what they want If he wants to come to Real Madrid the doors will be open" While Zidane smiled through his press conference here Barcelona have been fighting to keep superstar Neymar from accepting Paris St Germain’s riches The French legend declined to twist the knife regarding Neymar "We will see what happens" Zidane said "He’s a good player They are our most important rivals but we lost our last match against Manchester City and we want to put in a strong performance "We are happy want to perform we want to be physically better That’s our goal but we are so happy to be here" Madrid will boast a strong squad although Real enters the match without Cristiano Ronaldo who has missed the US tour and will not appear Saturday "Yes I am happy with what we have right now" said Zidane "But we have a good squad even though we are missing Cristiano here He is on vacation and he can enjoy that and be ready for the season" Ronaldo kept the International Champions Cup organizers waiting until the very last minute before deciding he would not be playing The Portuguese star has been in Asia completing commercial obligations and is expected in court on Monday in Madrid to testify in a tax-evasion case meaning his presence in South Florida was always highly doubtful "Unfortunately Ronaldo’s personal commitments precluded him from being here" Charlie Stillitano chairman of organisers Relevent Sports told the Miami Herald "He really wanted to be here This is not a diva situation He was hoping that he could make it He waited until today to let us know but it
