INTERVIEW-Soccer-Bring in male refs to help female officials, says former striker Smith
INTERVIEW-Soccer-Bring in male refs to help female officials, says former striker SmithGlobal soccer body FIFA should bring in experienced male officials to help female referees adjust to the Video Assistant Referee system following a number of incidents at the women's World Cup, former England striker Sue Smith told Reuters. With VAR being used for the first time in women's football at the 24-team tournament in France, many games have had more than 10 minutes of stoppage time due to the delay over checks made by officials who are not familiar with the system. Referees in the men's game were able to get to grips with VAR at the 2017 Confederations Cup before last year's World Cup in Russia and as well from some domestic leagues across Europe.

U.S. GDP first-quarter growth unrevised at 3.1%
News ImageU.S. economic growth accelerated in the first quarter, the government confirmed on Thursday, but the export and inventory boost to activity masked weakness in domestic demand, some of which appears to have prevailed in the current quarter. Gross domestic product increased at a 3.1% annualized rate, also driven by strong defense spending, the government said in its third reading of first-quarter GDP. Despite the unchanged reading, growth in consumer spending was revised lower and business investment in intellectual property products was stronger than previously estimated.

COLUMN-G20 leaders more preoccupied by domestic woes than ever: Peter Apps
News ImageWorld leaders have no shortage of global issues to discuss at this week's Group of 20 summit but, perhaps more than ever before, most will be more focused on their own domestic politics than on international diplomacy. For U.S. President Donald Trump, success on trade and holding U.S. allies and potential foes to account feels central to his prospects for re-election in 2020. Trump and his team also remain highly focused on Iran, in a confrontation that potentially like the G20 increasingly demonstrates just how much risk the United States and its potential foes are willing to take to appear strong, even at the risk of hugely damaging mutual consequences.
