Portugal's Ronaldo V Eusebio Debate Too Close To Call

He traded a birdie for a bogey from the 17th. The 39-year-old Englishman had six pars and a birdie in the first seven holes around the turn. He closed his round with birdies on the eighth and ninth. Quiros, who topped Paul Lawrie for the 2008 title, stumbled to bogeys at 12 and 14, but came back with birdies at 15 and 17 to make the turn at even-par. On the front side, the Spaniard birdied five of the first six holes, including four in a row from the third, to get within one of the lead. <br>More:

Portugal make light work of Israel

What Merkel's win means for businesses? The latest visit from creditors means the embattled eurozone nation will receive the next tranche of its 78 billion euro ($111 billion) financial aid package. However, government official were unable to convince creditors to ease the country's deficit reduction target for next year. Portugal's coalition government, led by Pedro Passos Coelho, must find billions of dollars in additional spending cuts, despite juggling an already austerity-fatigued electorate, mass unemployment and questions over political stability. Today politically you have higher stability than 6 months ago, that's clear Antonio Mexia But Mexia said: "I think today politically you have higher stability than 6 months ago, that's clear. Political stability has a lot to do with the results of let's say, this bailout package." With the Portuguese economy forecast to contract 2.3% this year, according to Eurostat, Mexia believes the government can spur growth by lowering taxes, particularly on corporations. He added that changes need to be made at European level to solve the region's debt crisis. <br>More:

Portugal Masters: Seve Trophy pair in lead pack

While studying engineering in London and management in Lisbon, the Mozambique-born scion of merchants took jobs selling cookies and shirts before his rapid ascent in banking and then at Portugal Telecom, which he joined in 1999 and left earlier this year to take the helm at Oi. With a track record of winning customers, cutting costs and savvy dealmaking, Bava seems well qualified continue for the industry's top table and to revive an underperforming Oi in a fast-growing Brazilian telecoms industry that looks ripe for consolidation. "I've never heard anyone criticise him," said Eduardo Tude, head of the Teleco consultancy in Brazil. "His strengths are his experience and the work he's done at PT (Portugal Telecom), as well as his vision for the sector." But Bava will be competing with telecoms industry heavyweights, including his personal friend Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, the owner of America Movil which rivals Oi in Brazil, as well as Spain's Telefonica. While Oi is Brazil's biggest fixed-line telecoms firm, it lags Telefonica's Vivo, Telecom Italia's TIM and American Movil in the rapidly expanding mobile sector and is losing customers. With Telefonica tightening its grip on Telecom Italia , many analysts expect a break up of TIM. <br>More:

"Going above Eusebio in the scorers' list was a natural thing to happen and it was only a matter of time but still I am really proud," the smiling player said while showing off the match ball. Ronaldo has the chance to add to his tally on Friday in the home qualifier against Israel as Portugal seek to secure at least second place in Group F and a berth in the playoffs for next year's World Cup in Brazil. While some of the football-mad Portuguese will angrily tell you not to compare the two because judging today's football against that of the 1960s is flawed, there are plenty of arguments on each side. SIMPLE MATHS Ronaldo, 28, is set to rewrite Portugal's soccer statistics as he is only four goals behind top scorer Pauleta and 21 matches away from the most-capped player Luis Figo. Striker Pauleta has said he does not consider himself equal to Eusebio, Ronaldo and Figo. <br>More:

A flurry of early corners augured well for the home side, with Carvalho finally capitalising from Sergio Oliveira's delivery.

If anybody says they dont know what number they are [on the money list] they might be lying. Youve got to know. For me I like to know what I have to do but its just a different attitude this week which has been working so far. One in front of Doak and leading the way for the Scottish contingent was Scott Jamieson, who shot a five-under 66. Robert Coles is also struggling to keep his card and matched Doaks 67, but the Englishman will have had mixed emotions after leading by three shots when he played his first 12 holes in seven under par. Coles, currently 164th on the Race to Dubai, then bogeyed the 13th and found water off the tee on the next to run up a double-bogey six before closing with four pars. The 41-year-old has managed just one top-20 finish all season in the very first event in South Africa which was reduced to 36 holes due to bad weather and is still looking for his first European Tour victory in more than 360 events. Defending champion Shane Lowry, third in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at the end of September, had to settle for a one-under-par 70. <br>More:

The 26-year-old has time to appear in the 2018 World Cup, but he'll need to significantly improve his image in the coming years if that is to happen, should he overlook retirement. Two national coaches have deemed him unworthy of a place in the squad, suggesting Nasri's hostile aura is unlikely to change as his career progresses. Ian Walton/Getty Images While France have certainly left a potential match-winner at home, the group's morale is more important than an individual's happiness. Nasri can split any defence with a threaded pass, clever piece of movement or ambitious attempt on goal, but his exile may prove to be a shrewd move from Deschamps. <br>More:

Abe May Bypass Japan’s Constitution To Expand Military Presence

The ally must request assistance, and the military involvement must be approved by Japans parliament. Japans constitution was drawn up after World War II. It was written by American officials who were concerned with the possible return of Japan as a military power. The Liberal Democrats say they want a truly Japanese constitution that reflects their nation and itstraditional patriarchal values that place family units above individuals. In tapes addition to concerns about an expanded military presence, Abes opponents believe that a external link rewritten constitution would reduce rights held by women in Japanese society, since men hold the dominant role in family relations. They also think that free speech would become subordinate to a desire to keep public order. But the bigger issue could be the fear of China and South Koreas reaction to a Japan with a traditionally Japanese constitution. One thing is clear: as the Abe administration pushes for more economic reforms, its opponents expect an equally big push to make constitutional changes, which have been called Abes life work. Also this week, a tapes key defense adviser told The Wall Street Journal that Japan ispreparing to expand its military capabilities within the guidelines of the current constitution, including the ability to attack military bases in self-defense and the creation of a defensive unit similar to the U.S. Marine Corps. <br>Read more:
