MEN’S FOOTBALL: Blackburn have reached an agreement with the Chilean football federation over the release of Ben Brereton Diaz in the October international break.
The club reached a compromise with Chile whereby Diaz will play in their first two qualifiers against Peru and Paraguay, but miss the final qualifier against Venezuela.
Rovers said he would return to the UK after the Paraguay game to “begin any required quarantine period and limiting the number of games he would miss for his club.”

MEN’S FOOTBALL: Harvey Elliott has revealed he has been “totally overwhelmed by the love and support” after badly dislocating his ankle in Liverpool’s 3-0 Premier League win at Leeds.
The midfielder sustained the injury in an innocuous-looking challenge by Leeds defender Pascal Struijk, who was shown a straight red card after VAR intervention.
He said: “To all of the Liverpool fans, your support means the world to me… I can’t wait to be back faster, fitter and stronger to help the team in the future.”
CRICKET: Australia Test captain Tim Paine will undergo surgery to repair a pinched nerve in his neck in a bid to be fit for the upcoming Ashes series, after the injury failed to respond to previous treatment.
A spinal surgeon recommended surgery to relieve pressure on the nerve during a consultation last week and the procedure will take place tomorrow.
It is hoped Paine will be able to return to training later this month.
