Barcelona star Neymar has praised the "great" quality of Juventus, despite beating the Italian champions 3-1 in Saturday's Champions League final. The Bianconeri pushed the Catalans close for much of the clash in Berlin, with Alvaro Morata equalising 10 minutes into the second half after Ivan Rakitic's fourth-minute opener. However, Luis Suarez and Neymar saw off any shock result in the Scudetto and Coppa Italia holders' favour with goals in the final third of the game, securing a treble for Barca. Neymar, who netted the final goal with the last kick of the game deep into second-half stoppage-time, was jubilant with how the Liga and Copa del Rey champions added a third trophy to their collection in 2014-15.

Pre-wedding trial makeup, it’s important

Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day.

So, he/she doesn't end up giving you one of those looks. Sit for the trial makeup: When your make...

The country programme’s target group includes people living in extreme and moderate poverty. Its targeting strategy starts by identifying geographic areas of poverty and then assessing household assets and needs – including food supply – in those areas. For example the haor areas in Sunamganj, and char areas in newly accreted land near sea in Noakhali, are remote and hard–to–reach inaccessible locations covered ...

A visit filled with aspiration
