Impressive Azzurri beat Dutch to take top spot

first_imgItaly’s Azzurri moved top of their UEFA Nations League group on Monday  night after an impressive 1-0 win over the Netherlands that showcased why hopes were high for a strong showing at the postponed Euro 2020. Nicolo Barella’s bullet header in first half stoppage time was enough for Roberto Mancini’s side to take all three points in Amsterdam and top spot in League A, Group 1. The ‘Azzurri’ are a point ahead of the Dutch, who are playing under interim coach Dwight Lodeweges following Ronald Koeman’s defection to Barcelona, and third-placed Poland following their 2-1 away win over Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Big Time shocks Fishery rivals

first_img Press Association Club Wexford, a stablemate of Dawn Approach and the 6-4 favourite, was all at sea early on but stayed on purposefully to finish a close-up third on his first visit to a racecourse. Murphy said: “He’s a real serious horse. We’ll think about the Coventry at Royal Ascot – he wants quick ground and has speed for anywhere. “He’s a proper one. He’d been working so well at home and doing things so easily.” Won 12 months ago by none other than Dawn Approach, the John Murphy-trained newcomer was largely unconsidered in what looked an up-to-scratch renewal of the five-furlong affair. Shane Foley’s mount maintained an honest gallop throughout, though, and kept on strongly passing the furlong pole to keep at bay Ballydoyle debutant Fountain Of Youth by a length and a half. center_img Big Time caused a 16-1 stir by claiming the Fishery Lane Race at Naas.last_img read more

Everton duo still in United’s sights

first_img “Everton can confirm that it has received bids from Manchester United for two players. Those bids were immediately rejected out of hand as derisory and insulting,” said Everton’s director of communications Alan Myers. “The club did not make public these details as it was vital Roberto Martinez’s preparations for the opening game of the Premier League season were not disrupted in any way.” That both players started Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Norwich underlines the fact neither is in dispute with the Toffees. However, it could easily be argued that the duo would welcome the opportunity of a move to the reigning champions and, having so far failed to reinforce his squad, it would be a major surprise if Moyes backed away so quickly. Indeed, it could be argued the offer was only in line with the first £20million bid made by Chelsea for Wayne Rooney in the middle of last month which the Blues are tipped to increase still further with a third bid before turning their attentions elsewhere. A further move for Fellaini could be anticipated on the strength of Moyes’ assessment earlier in the summer that United do need to bolster their central midfield options. United’s chase for Cesc Fabregas is yet to be abandoned. Realistically though, with the former Arsenal skipper starting Barcelona’s 7-0 rout of Levante on Sunday night, the chances of Fabregas exiting the Nou Camp this month are remote. Fellaini might not have shown Fabregas’ game-changing abilities. At Premier League level though, the Belgian is an effective performer, and with a date for Darren Fletcher’s return to fitness as yet unknown, Moyes currently only has three central midfielders, plus 39-year-old Ryan Giggs, to choose from. United manager David Moyes has been keen to bring both players to Old Trafford following the Scot’s own summer move from Everton. But it is clear he will need to offer substantially more than the respective £12million and £16million for Baines and Fellaini which is believed to have been the split for the offer, which was lodged at the end of last week. The pursuit of Baines is possibly a more puzzling one. Patrice Evra has recovered to something like his old form after a difficult 2011-12 campaign. At 32, he is one of United’s most experienced players and was named captain in Nemanja Vidic’s absence over the past two seasons. The only time in recent memory the Red Devils had two experienced full-backs vying for the same position was 2006-07, when Evra and Gabriel Heinze went head to head. Wes Brown filled in for Gary Neville at right-back the following season but he was more naturally a centre-half. The rest of the time, a younger player has tended to be the stand-in, so if Baines did eventually join United, it would seem obvious for Evra to move on, even if Moyes has previously insisted that would not happen. Manchester United look certain to return with a higher offer after Everton branded their £28million joint bid for Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini as “derisory and insulting”.

Football News Premier League: Manchester United held to draw by Wolves after Paul Pogba penalty saved

first_imgManchester: Manchester United were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw against Wolves after Paul Pogba’s penalty was saved by Rui Patricio at Molineux.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side took the lead through Anthony Martial’s second Premier League goal of the season in the first half. Ruben Neves hit a brilliant equaliser for Wolves after the interval before France star Pogba was denied by Patricio.It was a curious decision for Pogba to take the spot-kick as Marcus Rashford had scored a penalty in last weekend’s 4-0 victory over Chelsea and also memorably netted the Champions League last-16 winner from the spot against Paris Saint Germain last term.  Pogba has now missed four Premier League penalties since the start of last season.  United would have gone top of the table with a win, but instead they were left to reflect on an inconsistent performance that underlined why Solskjaer still has a lot of work to do to turn his team into title contenders.  While there were moments of promise in attack and defence, United didn’t take their chances and crumbled too easily when they came under pressure in their second game of the season.  At an average of 24 years and 173 days, Solskjaer had picked United’s youngest Premier League starting line-up since the final day of the 2016-17 campaign.  Daniel James made his maiden start for United after the close-season signing from Swansea scored his first goal as a substitute against Chelsea. There was no place in the matchday squad for Chile forward Alexis Sanchez, who has been linked with Inter Milan.Solskjaer has described James as United’s ‘x-factor’, but the 21-year-old didn’t win any friends when he was booked for diving in a failed attempt to win a free-kick from referee Jon Moss. United threatened for the first time when another of their young guns Rashford spun past Ryan Bennett on the left side of the Wolves area and crossed towards Martial, who did not make enough contact as the ball flashed past him. It was a warning Wolves failed to heed as United took the lead with an incisive raid in the 27th minute. Breaking inside from left, Luke Shaw found Jesse Lingard who moved the ball onto Rashford. Rashford slipped a perfectly-weighted pass to Martial in the Wolves area and the French forward blasted a superb strike into the roof of the net without breaking stride.  Solskjaer had called for Martial to be more clinical and, his message received loud and clear, the Norwegian clapped approvingly on the touchline.  Martial’s goal took him to 50 for United in all competitions since his move from Monaco in 2015.Martial should have doubled United’s lead on the stroke of half-time when he pounced on Bennett’s misplaced pass and eased past Willy Boly, only to tread on the ball when he seemed certain to score.  Well marshalled by Harry Maguire, United denied Wolves a single shot on target in the first half. But Wolves were revitalised after the interval by the introduction of the speedy Adama Traore.  Suddenly, Maguire and company did not look so solid and Raul Jimenez glanced a free-kick against the far post with United keeper David De Gea rooted.Wolves’ pressure paid off in the 55th minute when a short corner was worked to Neves on the edge of the area and the Portugal midfielder curled a sublime strike into the top corner.  Neves’s eye-catching effort survived a VAR review for offside in the build-up and he celebrated his 10th goal from outside the area since joining Wolves.United had a golden chance to reclaim the lead when Martial found Pogba in the Wolves area and the France midfielder was clipped by Conor Coady.  Pogba and Rashford appeared to discuss who should take the spot-kick. Whoever made the final call, it proved a bad move as Pogba’s powerful drive was superbly pushed away by Patricio.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

first_imgKRISH Persaud and Manish Patel, the American-based owners of Jamaica Tallawahs and Barbados Tridents, respectively, have purchased franchises in a T20 competition in the United States.USA Cricket released a list of franchise owners this past weekend.Persaud owns the Fort Lauderdale Lions while Patel, who previously owned Jamaica Tallawahs when they won the CPL in 2016, and who now owns the Tridents, is the principal behind the owner of the Austin Athletics.The 24-team competition, the result of a partnership between USA Cricket and American Cricket Enterprises, was set to begin later this year but was postponed because of the pandemic.However, they remain enthusiastic about the competition.“We have spent the last several weeks on-boarding franchise owners.

Spirit of Troy performs at parade in China

first_imgThe Trojan Marching Band performed in the Macau Chinese New Year’s Parade for the Year of the Monkey on Wednesday, making them the first American group to be invited to the event and the only college band in attendance.The annual parade performed along Macau’s waterfront featured over one thousand performers from eight different countries, with televised broadcasts reaching more than 1 million viewers internationally. In addition to the parade, the Spirit of Troy performed at the historic Ruins of St. Paul, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.For junior and trumpet section leader, Emily Moneymaker, the ability to travel both domestically and internationally is one of the many benefits of the TMB.“I’ve gone on over 20 trips with the band and have had so many amazing and unique opportunities thanks to my involvement in the TMB that would never have been possible otherwise,” Moneymaker said. “The TMB is truly a life changing group, and I’m so thankful for all of the incredible memories I’ve made with the group.”Senior and former trombone section leader Roger Brown also appreciates the many opportunities the TMB has provided him.“This is my first international trip with the TMB, and my second international trip in general. I am extremely grateful to participate in this event,” Brown said. “I’ve been on over a dozen domestic trips with the band, many of them to places that weren’t originally on my travel radar, [such as] Macau.”For many members of the TMB, the trip was an opportunity to meet individuals from all over the world, including Spain, Portugal, Japan, Korea, France and Malaysia. For junior computer science (games) major and crash cymbals player Robyn To, a major highlight of the trip was the cultural exchange.“We [had a] practice from 4:30 p.m. to midnight with all the groups performing in the parade and it was awesome to meet so many people from different cultures,” To said.Whenever the group travels abroad, they accept their roles as ambassadors for USC. For fifth-year senior and drum major Chase Wagoner, representing USC abroad evokes feelings of privilege and pride.“I take pride in the TMB’s role as ambassadors to the rest of the world,” Wagoner said. “For the parade, we’re performing ‘Fight On!’ and a few of our rock charts … [which] are great representations of the band and act as cultural exchange between the band and our audience.”The group was also able to enjoy the city of Macau during their week-long visit. With extravagant shopping malls and an abundance of casinos, Brown relished taking in the local flavor and culture of Macau.“We had a number of free nights to explore [and we] looked around some of the casinos, ate Chinese and Portuguese food, saw popular sights and participated in other cultural activities,” Brown said. “On our free day, many of us took a ferry to Hong Kong to explore there too.”While traveling and enjoying international cultures is a unique experience, many band members’ true love for the TMB stems from a different source.“Travel is a fantastic part of the TMB … my favorite part is the passion and camaraderie,” Wagoner said. “Being part of a 300-strong group yelling their hearts out for our defense or singing our fight song beats any other experience I’ve ever had.”last_img read more
