Neymar to miss Argentina******
BUENOS AIRES, Nov. 15 (Xinhua) -- Brazil forward Neymar will miss his team's 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Argentina because of a leg muscle injury, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said on Monday.。
The 29-year-old was ruled out of Tuesday's clash in the central-western Argentine city of San Juan after feeling pain in the adductor area of his left thigh.。
"Neymar Jr said he felt insecure about the situation and, as there is not enough time to carry out complementary exams, the technical commission decided to rest the player who will not travel with the team," a CBF statement read.。
Meanwhile, Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni confirmed that Lionel Messi would play, playing down concerns about the 34-year-old's fitness.。
The Paris Saint-Germain forward made a 14-minute cameo appearance off the bench in Argentina's 1-0 win over Uruguay on Friday, having missed Paris Saint-Germain's last two games because of knee and hamstring problems.。
"He was physically fit the other day and in the end we decided that the best thing was for him to play a few minutes so that he could get a feel for it and he is confirmed to play tomorrow," Scaloni told reporters.。
Brazil head the 10-team South American zone standings with 34 points from 12 matches, six points ahead of second-placed Argentina.。
The Selecao secured their place at next year's World Cup in Qatar with a 1-0 win over Colombia in Sao Paulo on Thursday.。

China's innovation index up in 2020******
BEIJING, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- The China Innovation Index, the barometer of the country's innovation capability, continued to climb in 2020, official data showed.
The index, introduced in 2005, increased by 6.4 percent from the 2019 level to 242.6 last year, according to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) data.
The index, which comprises four sub-indices, measures the innovation environment, input, output and effects.
Up to 19 out of the 21 indicators in the four categories witnessed increases compared with a year ago, the NBS data showed. Six indicators, such as the number of brands owned by enterprises and the trade volume of the technology market, reported double-digit growth.
The index readings reflected that China had made strides forward in the capabilities and level of innovation, said Li Yin, a statistician with the NBS, noting that innovation has provided key support for the country to sustain sound growth and pursue high-quality economic development. Enditem
Trump sues House committee investigating riot on Capitol Hill******
Former US President Donald Trump on Monday sued the US congressional committee investigating the January 6 riot at the Capitol, claiming members made an illegal request for his White House records.
Trump, in a lawsuit filed in the US District Court for the District of Columbia, asserted that materials sought by the House of Representatives committee are covered by a legal doctrine known as executive privilege, which protects the confidentiality of some White House communications.
"The Committee's requests are unprecedented in their breadth and scope and are untethered from any legitimate legislative purpose," Trump's lawyer, Jesse Binnall, wrote in the lawsuit.
Committee members Liz Cheney, a Republican from Wyoming, and Bennie Thompson, a Democrat from Mississippi, said in a written statement issued in response to Trump's lawsuit that the former president was seeking to "delay and obstruct" their investigation.
"It's hard to imagine a more compelling public interest than trying to get answers about an attack on our democracy and an attempt to overturn the results of an election," Cheney and Thompson said in the statement.
Hundreds of Trump supporters stormed the seat of Congress on January 6 in a failed bid to prevent lawmakers from certifying Democratic President Joe Biden's election victory. More than 600 people face criminal charges stemming from the event.
Trump was impeached by the Democratic-led House on a charge of inciting the attack on the Capitol in a fiery speech at a rally earlier that day. He was acquitted by the Senate.
Biden earlier this month authorized the National Archives to turn over an initial batch of documents requested by the select committee. The Archives has said it would turn over the requested material next month, according to Trump's lawsuit, which seeks an injunction halting that process.
Michael Stern, a former congressional lawyer, said Trump's strategy may be to use litigation to stall the select committee's work.
"If he is willing to pay for the lawyers, Trump could delay the production of records for some time," Stern said.
The January 6 committee has also issued subpoenas demanding testimony from Trump advisers, including political strategist Steve Bannon, who has refused to testify until Trump's assertion of executive privilege has been resolved by a court or through negotiations with the committee.
The committee has subpoenaed other officials including former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark, Trump former chief of staff Mark Meadows, deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino and former Defense Department official Kash Patel.
