There are regrets, because not everyone comes to San Siro and controls the play like this.“Naturally, in the final 20 minutes we got a bit stretched out and allowed some Inter counter-attacks. We should’ve been more determined in front of goal, but I cannot complain about the overall approach.“We are on the right path and emerge with heads held high, albeit with zero points. We’re talking about Inter, they are top of the table and won every game so far, but in terms of performance and quality of football, Lazio did better this evening.” last_img read more

first_imgMan Utd manager Solskjaer slams AZ Alkmaar pitch: Worst I’ve ever seenby Freddie Taylor23 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has plenty of concerns about AZ Alkmaar’s pitch ahead of their Europa League group stage clash on Thursday night.United will face the Dutch side at Cars Jeans Stadion in The Hague, a temporary ground after a section of AZ’s stadium roof collapsed. The new stadium has an artificial pitch, and Solskjaer says it’s one of the worst he has ever seen.”I’m surprised they’ve chosen to play on this pitch when I’ve looked at it,” Solskjaer said. “I’m used to it from Norway. It’s not the best I’ve seen.”It’s one of the worst ones I’ve seen for a long while. We’ve al got standards back home in Norway anyway. It’s safe, I’m not saying it’s not. It’s not the newest.”It’s just on the floor so on the carpet more or less, so when you pull the grass up you do that loads, there’s more bounce.”It seems like it’s been used a lot but with my knees I’ve not enjoyed astro turf anyway.”I’m surprised that in this climate you have to use astro turf. It’s OK when you live in the North Pole like we more or less do in Norway and can’t play in March, November or December.

Tierney could end up at Barcelona or PSG – Brown

first_imgCeltic captain Scott Brown believes that former team-mate Kieran Tierney could end up at Barcelona or Paris Saint-Germain if he performs well at Arsenal.The Scottish left-back, 22, joined the Gunners in a deal worth £25m (€27m/$30m) on transfer deadline day and will compete with Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal for a starting spot once he recovers from his hernia operation.And 34-year-old midfielder Brown feels that, should the young defender excel, he could earn himself another big move. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? “You don’t know what could happen,” Brown told The Herald. “He could have a fantastic couple of seasons and end up at Barcelona or PSG or wherever.”He also insisted that there are no ill feelings from the Celtic squad towards Tierney for moving on and claimed the club would welcome him back one day if he chose to return.“There are pictures on the wall all over the club of players who have left, and everyone would wish them all the best. They can come back as well, that’s what this club is all about, he said.“I see Ajax bringing players through and selling them on – and they have a party for them leaving. We try and criticise. It’s a different level.“We wish him all the best. We just concentrate on now and [new left back Boli Bolingoli] has to push on and try to get to the levels that Kieran did.”Bolingoli signed as Tierney’s replacement from Rapid Vienna and started the season as Celtic’s first choice left-back while the former’s future was resolved.He made 42 appearances across all competitions in Austria last term, scoring two goals and recording five assists.Those numbers mirror Tierney’s attacking output almost exactly, with the Scotsman managing one goal and six assists from 40 appearances in all competitions last season.The last Celtic defender to make a high-profile move to the Premier League was Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk, who then joined Southampton, and Tierney will hope he can be as successful as the Dutchman has been in his time in England.last_img read more

(Photo by Gene Sweeney Jr/Getty Images)With conference play opening up in the Big Ten, Michigan and Nebraska will battle this upcoming weekend.The Scott Frost era isn’t off to an excellent start, as the Cornhuskers lost their first two games. As for Michigan, Jim Harbaugh’s offense has come alive over the past two weekends, averaging 47 points per contest.Obviously, both Michigan and Nebraska could use a victory within their conference, but ESPN’s Football Power Index believes the Wolverines will come out on top.The current FPI gives Michigan an immense 94.5 percent chance of winning. If Nebraska is going to shock the No. 19 ranked team in the country, then they’ll need Adrian Martinez on the field. The dual-threat quarterback was out of action last weekend, as he recovers from an injured knee.Considering the recent production of Shea Patterson, Nebraska will need to prepare for a high-scoring affair.Michigan and Nebraska are set to kick off at 12:00 p.m. ET.

Heisman Trophy Voter Getting Crushed For His Ballot

Haskins, a Heisman Trophy finalist, ended up finishing third in the award’s voting, though many Buckeyes fans were upset throughout the day, thinking he was getting disrespected.Fischer’s ballot certainly isn’t helping lessen that idea:Here was my Heisman ballot: pic.twitter.com/xhFnQjmR4B— Bryan Fischer (@BryanDFischer) December 9, 2018Ohio State fans aren’t too happy with him:Your ballot should be revoked.— Sean Dooley (@wittdooley) December 9, 2018You should lose voting privileges!— Darren Thorley (@dthorley5) December 9, 2018Don’t agree on your 1 and 2, but both were great, it’s the “agenda” with your 3 that ruins your credibility— BROOKES™ (@RHBrookes) December 9, 2018Williams actually received one first-place vote for the award, so having him at No. 3 isn’t insane, but it’s also fair for Ohio State fans to be upset.last_img read more

Elite 4-Star WR E.J. Williams Taking 5th Clemson Visit

(Photo By Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)The Clemson Tigers are gaining a reputation as one of the top developers of wide receivers in the country. The Class of 2020 has the potential to bring even more talented players into they can land E.J. Williams.According to TigerNet, Williams is poised to make his fifth visit to Clemson this weekend for the school’s Junior Day. Williams is a four-star wide receiver in the Class of 2020 and has visited Clemson several times since Fall 2018.In an interview with TigerNet, Williams revealed that he is in almost constant communication with head coach Dabo Swinney’s staff. He also stated that they’ve told him they believe he can “make an impact.”“I talks to coach (Jeff) Scott and coach (Todd) Bates, they text me about every day… They really just say that I’m a great wide receiver and they feel like I can make an impact…”ICYMI: Coveted wide receiver scheduled to be back on campus this weekend: https://t.co/G5sUrDIqE6 pic.twitter.com/AIDYZbx6O9— TigerNet.com (@ClemsonTigerNet) March 7, 2019247Sports rates Williams as the No. 88 prospect in the country, the No. 19 wide receiver prospect, and the No. 2 prospect from the state of Alabama.The odds certainly look good for Clemson, as 247Sports’ Crystal Ball predictions give the Tigers a 100-percent chance of getting a commitment from Williams.Another added bonus for the Tigers would be depriving their College Football Playoff rivals Alabama from claiming one of the top players in their own state.Joining Clemson would also position him with one of the top developers of NFL wide receivers in all of college football.Until 2007, only 15 Clemson wide receivers were drafted in the NFL. But since Dabo Swinney took over the program in 2009, eight Clemson wide receivers have been selected – including three first-round picks.[TigerNet]last_img read more

Claudio ticks all of those boxes and he’s very excited to take on this challenge,” said Roma President Jim Pallotta.advertisementThe widely-travelled Ranieri has coached more than a dozen clubs in a career that began in 1987 at Campania Puteolana.They include Italian clubs Juventus, Napoli, Cagliari, Fiorentina, Parma and Inter Milan, English sides Fulham, Chelsea and Leicester City, Spain’s Atletico Madrid and Valencia and Ligue 1 sides AS Monaco and Nantes.He has also coached the Greece national side.Also Read | Pep Guardiola trusts Manchester City to resolve Financial Fair Play allegationsAlso Read | UEFA justifies PSG penalty decision in VAR explanationAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Mitchell Starc breaks Saqlain Mushtaq’s record to become fastest to 150 ODI wickets

first_img Rohan Sen NottinghamJune 6, 2019UPDATED: June 7, 2019 00:10 IST Mitchell Starc was the pick of the bowlers for Australia as they defended 288 against West Indies (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSMitchell Starc finished with 5 wickets for 46 from his quota of 10 oversThis was Starc’s 6th five-wicket haul in ODIs as Australia beat West Indies by 15 runsStarc became the fastest bowler to complete 150 wickets in 77 ODIsAustralian pacer Mitchell Starc on Thursday became the fastest bowler to 150 ODI wickets and he also became the first in World Cup 2019 to pick up a five-wicket haul to lead his team to a 15-run win over West Indies in Nottingham.Chasing 289 for victory, the West Indies were restricted to 273 for 9 with Starc picking up his sixth five-wicket haul in ODIs. Australia, who were bowled out for 288 batting first, registered their second successive win in the tournament to move up to second place in the points table.Starc finished with figures of 5 for 46 from his quota of 10 overs and bettered former Pakistan off-spinner Saqlain Mushtaq’s record to become the fastest to 150 wickets in his 77th ODI match. Saqlain had achieved the milestone in 78 matches.”We back ourselves to defend anything. I felt it (the surface) quite hard – the wicket was a bit up and down but I settled in and got used to it. They were on the way before Starcy picked 2-3, good move by Finch to bring him on then. He is a fantastic bowler and credit goes to him,” man-of-the-match Nathan Coulter-Nile, who smashed 92 runs with the bat, praised Starc after the game.Starc has a terrific record against the West Indies with 21 wickets in 7 matches at 12.76 with three five-wicket hauls in ODI cricket.West Indies got off to a poor start before Shai Hope (68) and Nicholas Pooran (40) laid the platform for the power-hitters, but the Starc-led Australian attack kept them on a tight leash.Starc first picked up the wicket of Chris Gayle (21) in the first powerplay and then returned in the death overs to remove Andre Russell (15), Jason Holder (51), Carlos Brathwaite (16) and Sheldon Cottrell (1) to swing the match in Australia’s favour.advertisementPat Cummins (2 for 41) and Adam Zampa (1 for 58) gave good support to Starc from the other ends.Also Read | Australia vs West Indies Highlights, ICC World Cup 2019Also Read | Smith, Coulter-Nile, Starc shine as Australia beat West IndiesAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Chris Gayle left to rue his luck after series of umpiring errors Also Read | World Cup 2019: Chris Gayle 3rd West Indian to score 1000 World Cup runsFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Joe Root should be the obvious picks as he already has two centuries in this World Cup so far.WicketkeeperMS Dhoni has the fastest hands in the business but has been struggling for form with the bat. Jos Buttler is the best batsman in his team and terrific with his glovework as well. It will be a tough choice to make.advertisementAll-roundersHardik Pandya is an automatic choice for the all-rounder’s slot as he has been in terrific form with both ball and bat for India. He has five wickets so far in the tournament and has broken partnerships with the ball at crucial junctures in the last two games. He also played important cameos against West Indies and Pakistan with the bat.Ben Stokes nearly pulled off the run chase for England in the last match against Australia before getting castled by a Mitchel Starc yorker. He is averaging over 50 in this World Cup with the bat and an impressive 26.66 with the ball so he walks into the side 9 times out of 10.BowlersJofra Archer and Jasprit Bumrah would be the best bets in the bowling lineup. Bumrah walks into any ODI side with him being the top-ranked bowler in the format. Whereas Jofra Archer is the fourth highest wicket-taker in World Cup 2019 with 16 scalps off 7 gamesIn Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, India have the best spin-bowling duo in the world and both have been terrific in the tournament so far. Chahal is India’s highest wicket-taker with 10 from 5 games while Kuldeep has 4 wickets but has been very economical so far at 4.40 in five matches.India vs England Dream11 suggested Playing XI: Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Jason Roy, Virat Kohli (captain), Joe Root, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Ben Stokes, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Jofra Archer.Squads:England: Eoin Morgan (Captain), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, Chris Woakes, Mark WoodIndia: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma, M.S.

BCCI to check on Kohli-Rohit rift, split captaincy an option

first_img Next Indo-Asian News Service LondonJuly 15, 2019UPDATED: July 15, 2019 11:32 IST India had crashed out of World Cup 2019 in the semi-finals. (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSIndia had suffered stunning exit at the hands of New Zealand in the World Cup 2019 semi-finalIndia was too reliant on the duo of skipper Virat Kohli and his deputy Rohit Sharma when it came to scoring runsRumours of rift between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have been doing rounds on social mediaEver since Indias ouster in the semi-final of the 2019 World Cup, there have been a lot of talks about the areas where the team lacked and also how it was too reliant on the duo of skipper Virat Kohli and his deputy Rohit Sharma when it came to scoring runs. While this has been an area that is also highlighted from the scoring charts of the World Cup, another factor that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is also keen to discuss is the idea of split captaincy.Speaking to IANS, a board functionary said that good teams start preparations immediately after one campaign ends and the biggest result of that is England winning the World Cup on Sunday. So, keeping an eye on the next campaign, India too could look at the option of having Rohit lead the team in the shorter format while Kohli continues in Tests.”This would be the right time for Rohit to take over the mantle of the captaincy in the 50-over format. There has been immense support to the present captain and the management and it is time to plan ahead for the next World Cup and for that the existing ideas and plans need a fresh look. We all know some areas need a relook. Rohit would be the right man for the job,” the functionary said.But as per the functionary, the biggest concern that has come up post the exit is the talks of different camps and rumours of a rift between the Kohli and Rohit. That could be detrimental for Indian cricket as the team looks to move forward and the matter is set to be discussed when the review meeting takes place with coach Ravi Shastri, captain Kohli and chief selector M.S.K. Prasad in the presence of the Committee of Administrators (CoA).advertisement”You are aware that Vinod Rai (CoA chief) has already mentioned that a review meeting will take place. This will have to be ascertained when the review takes place and it is important to get to the bottom of these rumours,” the functionary added.While Rai has claimed that a review meeting will take place to assess the performance of the team, there are clearly more problem areas that need immediate attention.Interestingly, the last time there was a meeting where the CoA members had met the senior players and coach — during the Test against West Indies in Hyderabad last year — Kohli and Rohit’s difference of thought was visible when it came to resting players in the IPL keeping the World Cup in mind.Also Read | Fans fume on Twitter after Cricket World Cup cheekily compares Sachin Tendulkar with Ben StokesAlso Read | England 1st country to win Cricket World Cup, Football World Cup and Rugby World CupAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Even I did not get 15 chances to prove myself: Virat Kohli

first_img Next Indo-Asian News Service DharamsalaSeptember 15, 2019UPDATED: September 15, 2019 21:45 IST India captain Virat Kohli (IANS Photo)HIGHLIGHTSMen in Blue will play around 30 T20I matches before the World CupVirat Kohli said that each individual coming in the team should have a mindset to make their markWe feel both the T20Is and the Test championship are in our focus, said India skipperICC World T20, scheduled to be held next year, will have to prove themselves in a short span of time as the team management is trying to figure out a perfect balance before the mega event.The Men in Blue will play around 30 T20I matches before the World Cup and Kohli said that each individual coming in the team should have a mindset to make their mark.”We are very clear. It is not that anyone will get 30 chances. Even when I came in the team, I didn’t think I will get 15-20 games and I knew I will mostly get chances in three to five games and I have to prove myself. One will get suppose five chances and he will have to prove himself. That is the level we are playing at. As the team management has that mindset, the individual should also have the same,” Kohli said in an interaction on bcci.tv”It is a delicate balance to strike but as we have 30 games before it (World Cup), so we have to figure out how much time each individual gets,” he added.Asked whether the roadmap for the T20 World Cup starts from Sunday, when India take on South Africa in Dharamsala in the first affair of the three-match rubber, Kohli said: “We feel both the T20Is and the Test championship are in our focus as both of them are milestones and that is why youngsters are being pushed in from time to time as it is important to settle the team combination because we have to figure out the guys who will take the team forward.”advertisementEarlier on Thursday, Kohli had tweeted a picture of him sitting on his haunches with M.S. Dhoni on the other end after India had defeated Australia in a league game of the 2016 World T20 in Mohali.”A game I can never forget. Special night. This man, made me run like in a fitness test,” Kohli had tweeted which led to rumours of Dhoni’s retirement in the social media.Clarifying the issue, Kohli explained: “I posted about that Mohali game with MS (Dhoni) as it was a very special game and people thought he is retiring. I just don’t know as where did my caption read ‘thanks MS’ or any such things.””I was like…..whatever goes in their (people) mind, they relate it,” he concluded.Also Read | Give a call to Dhoni: Aakash Chopra suggests Tim Paine for better use of DRSAlso see:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
