The soccer news starts with more from the DFB Pokal. Tyler Adams's RB Leipzig shutout John Brooks's Wolfsburg 1-0 at home. Matheus Cunha scored the game's only goal in the 9th minute with Peter Gulacsi keeping the clean sheet with one save.
"Our off-the-ball play was really good again today," RB Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick said. "We only let Wolfsburg have one clear chance, which Peter Gulacsi saved brilliantly. You could only criticize us for not putting the game to bed earlier. Hats off to the lads, especially for all their brilliant and tireless work they did off the ball. I'm delighted that we've reached the DFB-Pokal quarterfinals for the first time in our history."

Also in the soccer news, Aleksander Ceferin officially won reelection as UEFA president unopposed. "In a world of constant and increasingly rapid change, where time seems to go ever faster and every day brings a fresh challenge, we are going to have to do more than simply adapt," Ceferin said. "We are going to have to think ahead and undertake some major developments. We must not allow our recent short-term successes to hide the much more complex challenges that lie ahead."
AP's Graham Dunbar outlines the challenges Ceferin's administration will likely face over the next four years. Keir Radnedge has Ceferin directly addressing UEFA's issues with FIFA's push for a revamped Club World Cup and global Nations League.
