PARIS (AP) — For a player who doesn’t consider himself to be a striker, Mohamed Salah is the envy of many forwards with his scoring record for Liverpool. “I don’t play No. 9, I play on the wing,” Salah said. “It’s completely different when you play as a winger.” And yet the Egyptian enters the Champions League final on Saturday with 31 goals in 50 games for this season and as the leading forward in English football. An impressive goal return but one eclipsed by the true No. 9 that Real Madrid wi

STAVANGER, Norway (AP) — Europe’s frantic search for alternatives to Russian energy has dramatically increased the demand — and price — for Norway's oil and gas. As the money pours in, Europe's second-biggest natural gas supplier is fending off accusations that it's profiting from the war in Ukraine.

PARIS (AP) — Sixty-three games. Four losses. Two trophies. And a whole lot of disappointment. That’s the scenario facing Liverpool’s players as they return home on Sunday from their painful Champions League final loss in Paris to a trophy parade through their city. They’ll smile on that bus. They’ll accept the cheers from their adoring fans. But deep down, there’ll be thoughts of what could have been. “Even if nobody on this planet would understand that we have a parade, we still will do it,” Kl
