Romelu Lukaku boosted Inter Milan's chances of reaching the Champions League quarter finals for the first time in over a decade after scoring the only goal in Wednesday's 1-0 win over Porto.

"I put everything into that goal," Lukaku told Amazon Prime. "We were daring and had two clear occasions to score," Porto captain Pepe told Eleven Sports.

Al-Attiyah holds a lead of 1hr 21min over another Toyota driver, Brazil's Lucas Moraes, with Loeb a further 19min in arrears. Overall leader Skyler Howes of the United States was third, 2min 57sec off the pace set by the stage winner.

(Adds analyst, NSC spokesperson)By David Brunnstrom and Steve HollandWASHINGTON, Dec 1 (Reuters) - The United States on Thursday imposed sanctions on three senior North Korean officials connected to the country's weapons programs after Pyongyang's latest and largest intercontinental ballistic missile test last month. The latest sanctions follow a Nov. 18 ICBM test by North Korea, part of a record-breaking spate of more than 60 missile launches this year, and amid concerns that it may be about to resume nuclear bomb testing suspended since 2017. The sanctions freeze any U.S.-based assets of the individuals and bar dealings with them, but appear largely symbolic. "Targeting senior officials inside North Korea responsible for WMD and missile activities and working with South Korea and Japan are important, but it is an inadequate and symbolic response to 60+ missile tests, including 8 ICBM tests," said Anthony Ruggiero, who headed North Korea sanctions efforts under former President Donald Trump. U.S. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said earlier Washington was committed to using pressure and diplomacy to entice North Korea into giving up its nuclear arsenal.3 months ago Kalkine Media
