Good morning!

Niall here with a round-up of our top stories on Wednesday morning.

Get in touch with us throughout the day on Twitter and Facebook.

TOP STORY

Tiger Woods was named to the United States’ Ryder Cup team this morning as captain Jim Furyk also added Phil Mickelson and in-form Bryson DeChambeau to his line-up.

Former world number one Woods had already been assured of a trip to Paris for the September 28-30 showdown with Europe after being named as one of Furyk’s non-playing vice-captains.

However Woods’ form since his return to golf this year prompted Furyk to award him one of the four captain’s picks set aside for players who did not qualify automatically for the team.

FOOTBALL

Kieran Trippier believes England have earned a warm Wembley welcome when they host Spain on Saturday and is eager to land a big result to keep the feel good factor going.

The Three Lions’ run to the semi-finals of the World Cup united the nation this summer, restoring public affection after several tournaments that succeeded only in eroding the side’s status.

Meanwhile, Luke Shaw revealed he almost lost his leg in the horror injury that led the Manchester United defender to consider quitting the sport.

Now, after three tough years, the rejuvenated left-back is more determined than ever to confound the doubters and reach the top.

CRICKET

Pakistan excluded veteran all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez from the final squad for the Asia Cup tournament, while young all-rounder Imad Wasim was axed after failing the fitness test for the second time.

Pakistan selectors decided to go with the in-form batsman Shan Masood after the opener scored 1,200-plus runs in two domestic one-day tournaments.

Elsewhere, South Africa stalwart AB de Villiers could feature in the fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League.

De Villiers announced his intentions of continuing to play in T20 leagues such as the IPL where he represents the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
