Football: H.K. has Scudamore dreaming of '39th game'

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore told AFP on Thursday that an extension to the season to include a round of matches overseas -- a controversial "39th game" -- would eventually happen. Scudamore was speaking in Hong Kong, where nearly 40,000 people braved torrential rain on Wednesday to see Sunderland beat Spurs 3-1 and Manchester City defeat local side South China 1-0. City will face Sunderland in the sell-out final of the Barclays Asia Trophy on Saturday.
