Born in Exeter, England, and raised on cricket, Chadwick was one of the prime movers in the rise of baseball to its unprecedented popularity at the turn of the 20th century. Chadwick moved to Brooklyn with his family at the age of 12, and became a frequent player of early ball games such as rounders. He began covering cricket for numerous local newspapers such as the Long Island Star. It is said Chadwick first came across baseball in 1856 in New York as a young cricket reporter, while watching a match between New York's Eagle and Gotham clubs. In 1857 he focused his attention as a journalist and writer on baseball after joining the New York Clipper, and was also soon hired on to provide coverage for other New York papers including the Sunday Mecury.[1] A keen amateur statistician and professional writer, he helped sculpt the public perception of the game, as well as providing the basis for the records of team's and player's achievements in the form of baseball statistics.

Eduardo Salvio scored twice in seven minutes as Benfica's Argentine stars scored all four goals in their comfortable victory against PSV at the Stadium of Light.

The striker doubled Benfica's lead - courtesy of Pablo Aimar's 37th-minute opener - with the goal of the evening as he back heeled Javier Saviola's left-wing cross at the stroke of half-time.

He added a second soon after before Saviola rounded off the scoring in injury time, with Zakaria Labyad grabbing a consolation goal for the Dutch team, who knocked out Scottish champions Rangers in the previous round.
