The Round of 16 of the 2022 Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship in the Dominican Republic finished on Sunday with another four teams advancing to the quarterfinal round.
One of the big winners of the day was the host nation Dominican Republic. In what is their first-ever CWU17, the Caribbean side is now through to the final eight after posting a 2-0 win over
neighbours Haiti at the Estadio Panamericano in San Cristobal.
The decisive scores came shortly before halftime, with two goals in the span of three minutes.
Maria Torreira broke the deadlock in the 39’ to make it 1-0, before the lead was doubled for good, 2-0, in the 42’ by Julia Jimenez.
The first game of the day at the Estadio Panamericano saw El Salvador march to a commanding 10-0 win over Saint Kitts and Nevis.
Braces from Carolina Ayala (1’, 4’), Sarina Villa (77’, 82’) and Karoline Velasquez (83’, 87’) were accompanied by goals from Mia Arevalo (42’), Cynthia Ramirez (44’), Victoria Sanchez
(45+1’) and Yaneth Sotelo (50’) for the Cuscatlecas.
Canada’s Rosa Maalouf continued her impressive CWU17 campaign by scoring a hat trick to lead Canada to a 4-1 win versus Honduras at the Estadio Olimpico Felix Sanchez in Santo Domingo.
It was a rocky start for Canada, however, as Honduras grabbed a lead in the 28’ through Susan
Henriquez. But soon Canada countered through Maalouf, who scored her first of the day in the 34’ to bring Canada level, 1-1. The second half then belonged to the North Americans with
Maalouf scoring in the 49’ and 82’, followed by Amanda Allen in the 88’.
With her three goals on the day, Maalouf is the current top scorer in the tournament with nine goals.
Rounding out the day was Jamaica, who downed Cuba 4-0 at the Estadio Olimpico Felix Sanchez.
Natoya Atkinson bagged a brace (2’, 59’), while Shaneil Buckley (53’) and Dannique Wilson (73’) tacked on scores to pace the Reggae Girlz to the victory.
Fulham sealed the Championship title with a thumping 7-0 win over Luton Town, as Aleksandar Mitrovic set a new goalscoring record for a 46-game season.
Having wrapped up an immediate promotion back to the Premier League by beating Preston North End last week, Marco Silva’s Whites confirmed their status as second-tier Champions with a win that sent several records tumbling at Craven Cottage.
Mitrovic, who was recently crowned Championship player of the season after an incredible individual campaign, beat Guy Whittingham’s long-standing record of 42 goals in a 46-game English league season, set in Portsmouth’s 1992-93 campaign, also in the second-tier.
The Serbia international scored Fulham’s fourth and seventh goals to take his tally to 43 in 43 appearances this season, with the Cottagers having one league game still to play.
Although Mitrovic’s tally is some way behind the all-time second-tier record (Middlesbrough’s George Camsell hit 59 goals in 1927-28), he has now outscored this season’s second-highest goalscorer – Bournemouth’s Dominic Solanke – by 14 strikes, as Fulham reached 106 league goals for the campaign.
In doing so, Silva’s side became the first to score 100 goals in a single second-tier season since Manchester City reached 108 in 2001-02, a tally they could yet better when they visit Sheffield United on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Fulham also became the first team since Tottenham’s 1960-61 double winners to score 50 goals both home and away in a single league campaign across the top four tiers of English football. 
Remarkably, Luton, who could yet join Fulham in the Premier League via the play-offs as they sit sixth with one game remaining, are also the third team to lose 7-0 to Fulham this season, after Blackburn Rovers in November and Reading in January.
That means three of the five biggest margins of victory recorded in English league football this season have been set by Silva’s men, who will hope to break their reputation as a ‘yo-yo’ club on their return to the top flight next term.
Sinisa Mihajlovic has been discharged from hospital “in good condition” after undergoing further leukaemia treatment, Bologna have announced.
The Serbian coach, who enjoyed an illustrious playing career in Serie A with the likes of Roma, Sampdoria, Lazio and Inter, was first diagnosed with the disease in 2019 and underwent a bone marrow transplant in October 2019, returning to the Bologna dugout just six weeks later.
Mihajlovic revealed in late March that routine tests had discovered “some alarm bells”, leading him to step back from hands-on coaching duties for an unspecified amount of time and to declare “this disease is very courageous in returning to face an opponent like me.”
An encouraging social media update from his club announced the news of Mihajlovic’s exit from hospital on Monday.
“Sinisa Mihajlovic was today discharged from the Sant’Orsola Hospital, in good condition. Forza Mister, we are with you,” read the tweet from Bologna’s official account.
Mihajlovic’s team have been in excellent form in Serie A of late, earning results against each of Milan, Juventus, Inter, and Roma during a six-match unbeaten run, with the 53-year-old receiving a surprise visit from his squad after they beat the title-chasing Nerazzurri 2-1 in dramatic fashion last week.
Borussia Dortmund have confirmed they have reached an agreement to sign Germany international centre-back Nico Schlotterbeck from fellow Bundesliga side Freiburg.
The 22-year-old has featured 53 times for Freiburg in all competitions, including 35 outings this campaign, and will remain with the club until the end of the 2021-22 season.
Schlotterbeck, who had a spell on loan with Union Berlin last season, has signed a long-term deal with Dortmund that runs through until July 2027.
He is the second new defensive addition for BVB ahead of the transfer window officially opening, with Niklas Sule also set to join from rivals Bayern Munich.
Dortmund confirmed the imminent arrival of Schlotterbeck, who has featured twice for Germany at senior level, on their official website on Monday.
“After consultation with all parties involved, I have today decided to announce my move to Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2022,” Schlotterbeck said. 
“In doing so, I want to provide clarity for SC Freiburg, Borussia Dortmund and myself personally.
“It is important for me to be able to fully concentrate on the remaining three games in the season run-in with SC Freiburg, which we hope will be successful. 
“After that, I’m looking forward to the new responsibilities with Borussia Dortmund.”
Freiburg occupy the final Champions League qualification spot in the Bundesliga with two games to go and also face RB Leipzig in the DFB-Pokal final on May 21.
