Higuita: "I achieved something even Pele, Maradona or Messi haven't"

Former Colombia international Rene Higuita has never gone unnoticed. On the pitch he had his own unique style, taking a daring approach to goalkeeping and making an indelible mark on the position.He is equally flamboyant and extroverted off it, making his strongly held opinions known and proving himself to be every bit as much a character as he was during his playing days.FIFA.com spoke to him about his style between the posts, his influence on todays keepers and Colombias chances at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.FIFA.com : You defined an era in goalkeeping but only played the one FIFA World Cup, Italy 1990. What did the tournament add to your career? Rene Higuita: Lots of really nice things because that team really made up for lost time. Colombia had gone 28 years without appearing at the World Cup, so it put us back on the map in many ways: as players and as a country. It was an awakening for Colombian football. When you go to the World Cup, really good things happen. Its the pinnacle of your career. Its not the same to play in international tournaments

I'm putting my cue down for a bit - Bingham

Stuart Bingham says he will take a short break from snooker and refocus on next season after losing in the first round of the World Championship.The 2015 Crucible champion was beaten 10-7 by fellow Englishman Jack Lisowski in a high-quality match on Tuesday.Bingham, who served a three-month ban for a betting on snooker matches last year, only returned in January."It's not been the best of seasons in general, but on the table I've been pretty good," the Essex cueman said."I haven't got my hands on any silverware but I've been knocking on the door. Give me a full season and I'll fancy winning again."World number 12 Bingham reached the final of the Romanian Masters in March, but has now failed to get past the second round at the Crucible since winning the tournament.There was no suggestion that Bingham aimed to "influence matches or engage in any corrupt activity" when he was banned in October 2017.But players are not allowed to bet on matches involving themselves and other players.Bingham added he will not be paying too much attention to the rest of the World Championship after losing to world number
