England men avenged their 3-4 loss to India in the group stage as Sam Ward (7th minute, 43rd minute) struck twice for the winners while Varun Kumar (27th) was the lone goal scorer for India.

Saturday was a day of many firsts for India at the 21st Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast.

India - who won silver in 2010 and 2014 - miss out on a medal, meanwhile, while Australia and New Zealand will do battle for the gold later today.

"That is hard to say, but I will try", said Kom, who is already older than most of her opponents.

Australia's Steele von Hoff claimed the gold medal in the men's road race, with Jonathan Mould of Wales taking silver and Clint Hendricks of South Africa claiming bronze.

India's Pusarla Sindhu defeated Canada's Michelle Li 21-18 21-8 to set up a gold medal match against compatriot Saina Nehwal, who advanced with a 21-14 18-21 21-17 win over Scotland's Kirsty Gilmour. This is India's first ever gold in the women's singles event at the CWG. In qualification, the 37-year-old scored a total of 1180 (58x) to break Olympic medallist Gagan Narang's qualification record of 1166.

Booker Grills Pompeo on Gay Marriage Opposition: 'Is Being Gay a Perversion?'
Pompeo first says that he did not "recall" whether or not Trump asked him about the probe being led by Mueller. In contrast, Tillerson did not even speak with his immediate predecessor, John F.

She was competing in her debut Commonwealth Games, also perhaps her last, and made it a memorable one with yet another dominating performance to claim an unanimous verdict of 5-0 over Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara in the final.

Kom is a former five-time world amateur champion who won a bronze medal in the 51-kilogram division at the London Olympics in 2012.

The Indian duo defeated their opponents 11-5, 11-6, 12-10.

"I am so disappointed, I should have won a gold medal and I have to settle for a bronze. I will be getting it corrected once I am done with the Games and back in India", she said. Saina will now take on the victor of PV Sindhu and Michelle Li in the final.

Seems like no stopping India in the ongoing commonwelath games.

Amit Panghal won silver in his maiden Games after losing to England' Yafai Galal in the final of the 46-49 kg category. "There were times throughout the tournament where we were not as sound as we have been and as we went on we found we did that better".
