Sturridge goal sends AVB’s men through

first_imgEverton 1 Chelsea 2 (after extra time)Daniel Sturridge’s winner four minutes from the end of extra time settled an incident-packed tie and sent Chelsea into the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup.Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka missed an early penalty before his team took a 38th-minute lead through Salamon Kalou, whose shot was horribly fumbled by Jan Mucha.AdChoices广告Twelve minutes into the second half, Blues goalkeeper Ross Turnbull was sent off after bringing down Louis Saha and the resulting penalty by Leighton Baines was saved by substitute keeper Petr Cech.That looked like being enough to send Andre Villas-Boas’ side into the last eight, but Saha headed in the equaliser with seven minutes of normal time remaining.Everton were themselves reduced to 10 men in extra time, when Royston Drenthe fouled Ryan Bertrand and was sent off for a second bookable offence.And with a penalty shoot-out looming, Sturridge pounced on the loose ball to score after hapless keeper Mucha failed to hold Malouda’s shot.Anelka putting his spot-kick wide after the excellent Josh McEachran was brought down by Johnny Heitinga was not the start required by a team left cursing their luck after Sunday’s derby defeat at QPR, where Jose Boswingwa and Didier Drogba were sent off.But Villas-Boas’ men then enjoyed some good fortune when Mucha inexplicably allowed Kalou’s weakly-struck lob from the edge of the box to slip through his grasp and into the net.After the break, however, Chelsea were again hit by a controversial dismissal.Turnbull was red-carded after clattering into Saha but did not appear to be the last man back, as David Luiz was covering.Enter Cech, whose first and second touches were to save Baines’ penalty and the left-back’s attempt to blast in the rebound, with Tim Cahill heading wide with his follow-up.But Cech was beaten by a blistering Drenthe free-kick that struck the bar – and again when Saha met Seamus Coleman’s cross at the near post to level for the Merseysiders.Dutchman Drenthe, who scored a brilliant goal against Fulham on Saturday, was again impressive so the visitors were probably glad to see the back of him once he was given his marching orders.They were certainly glad when Sturridge showed his predatory instincts to net his fifth goal of the season and take them through.last_img read more

NFF: We Will Not Impose Players on Rohr

first_img“We gave Rohr a free hand to pick whoever he feels capable of playing in the Super Eagles, so long as the player will respect and honour the nation when called upon,” Sanusi told AOIFootball.comThe NFF scribe also added his view to the recent report on the possibility of former Enyimba shot-stopper Vincent Enyeama’s return to the Eagles’ fold, saying it’s a decision that lies solely with the team’s coaches.“I won’t say we are in support of his decision to bring back Enyeama, neither will I say we are against it; Rohr’s decisions are final on this issue so he knows what is best for him and the team,” concludes the NFF scribe.Vincent Enyeama has been out of the national team since his last scuffle with former Eagles’ handler, Sunday Oliseh who stripped the Lille goalkeeper of the captain armband.However, following the unfortunate illness of current No 1 Carl Ikeme, speculations have filled football circles in the country that Enyeama was on his was back to Eagle to reclaim the Number One jersey to the World Cup in Russia.Though both Daniel Akpeyi and Ikechukwu Ezenwa have kept faith with the team, the later was in-charge of Eagles last three outings- the double header against Cameroon and the clash with Zambia in Uyo.The FC IfeanyiUbah safe hands conceded just one goal in the one all draw in Yaounde and kept a clean slate in both matches in Uyo.Akpeyi on the other hand remains a suspect following his poor showing against South Africa in the AFCON 2019 Eagles lost 2-0 in Uyo. Dele Alampasu remains untested yet since his invitation to the senior national team.Enyeama however remains the most experienced shot stopper the Super Eagles might rely upon going into the World Cup next year.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Olawale Ajimotokan with agency reportThe Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has insisted that it was not going to impose players on the Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, as the Franco-German gaffer starts searching for players to make impact at the World Cup in Russia next year.Nigeria is the first country in Africa to book her passage to the Russia 2018 Mundial even with a game to spare.Speaking in Abuja yesterday, General Secretary of the NFF, Dr Sanusi Mohammed insisted that allegations by some sections of the Nigeria media that the Glass House is trying to force some players on the coach are not true.“The football house will not in any way interfere in Rohr’s choice of players and goalkeepers for the national teams.last_img read more

NFL Draft 2019: Cardinals have made no decision on No. 1 pick, GM Steve Keim insists

first_img NFL Draft 2019: Kyler Murray reportedly cancels Redskins visit Cardinals’ Kliff Kingsbury again praises Josh Rosen: He’s a ‘much better player than I was’ The Cardinals still haven’t made a decision on who they will select with the No. 1 overall pick, even though the NFL Draft is only a little more than a week away.”Number one, we are not done with this process. We have not made a decision with the first overall pick,” Keim said during a press conference Tuesday (via ABC 15). “I’m not going to get into hypotheticals today. We’re nine days away, guys. Anything can happen. According to Bleacher Report, the Cardinals already have received two offers for Rosen, but they want to “save face” and get as close to a first-round pick as possible.Keim, however, wasn’t willing to reveal Arizona’s thought process, and insists his franchise hasn’t made a decision about its draft plan just yet. First-year coach Kliff Kingsbury has remained positive about Rosen’s fit with Arizona, and he indicated Tuesday that Rosen has been “phenomenal,” despite the speculation about the quarterback’s future. Keim added that Rosen has been a “pro’s pro.” center_img “I usually try to be straightforward with you guys, but at this time of year, we all know the drill. It’s fun, it’s good for talk shows and TV, but we have a job to do, as well.”The belief by many is that the Cardinals will select Oklahoma quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray with the top pick and then trade Josh Rosen, selected with the 10th overall pick in the 2018 draft. Rosen struggled during his rookie season as he completed 55.2 percent of his passes for 2,278 yards. He threw for 11 touchdowns with 14 interceptions in 14 games.  Related News “The one thing that I’ve appreciated about him the most since we drafted him, the kid has an unbelievable amount of mental toughness,” Keim said.The Cardinals finished 2018 with a league-worst 3-13 record, missing the playoffs for a third straight season.The 2019 NFL Draft begins with Round 1 next Thursday and runs through Saturday in Nashville.last_img read more

Spanish Olympic sailing team members mugged at gunpoint in Rio

first_imgBeijing 2008 Olympic champion Fernando Echavarri, his Nacra 17 catamaran class partner and 2011 470 world champion Tara Pacheco and coach Santi Lopez-Vazquez were all mugged in Santa Teresa, an up-market neighbourhood popular with tourists to the west of Guanabara Bay on which the Marina is located.They were confronted by five people armed with two pistols, according to a statement released by the Spanish Sailing Federation.A bag with money, documents and a camera was reportedly taken.None of the victims were injured in the incident.”Civil police are working to identify the authors of the crime and to recover the stolen objects,” added a Rio de Janeiro police statement.Ensuring the safety of athletes, spectators and all other personnel attending the Games is one of the priorities in a country notorious for petty crime.Rio, despite being considered among Brazil’s safer cities, has huge problems, particularly in favela neighbourhoods where shootouts between police and drug gangs are common.Earlier in 2016, images surfaced of a number of daylight muggings carried out by a group of militant children, captured by a local businessman who used his camera to film the series of incidents from December to January.But tourists and foreigners are also targeted in wealthier areas.In May of last year, 57-year-old doctor Jaime Gold was attacked while cycling close to the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas lake upon which rowing and canoe sprint events will be held, later dying in hospital as a result of his injuries.A 19-year-old French cyclist was also assaulted in the same district at a similar time of the year.Earlier this month, retired football legend Rivaldo claimed anyone visiting for the Games will be “putting their lives at risk” due to the security situation.Another problem is financial crime, with gangs known to target ATM machines used by tourists.Brazilian and Rio 2016 officials claim the streets will be safer during the Games, with around 85,000 soldiers and police expected to be deployed during the Olympics – about twice as many as London four years ago.The latest incident is not a good sign, however.”The lack of security in Rio is one of the points that worries the teams,” the Spanish statement added.”Fernando, Tara and Santi want to forget what happened as quickly as possible and concentrate completely and exclusively on the training.”last_img read more

Juventus lose opening match to Udinese

first_imgMILAN (AP): Udinese stunned Juventus by winning 1-0 in Turin yesterday, as the Italian champions’ bid for a record-equalling fifth successive league title started with its first loss in 48 Serie A home matches. Juventus dominated but were unable to finish any of their many chances, and Udinese made the host team pay when Cyril Thereau scored 12 minutes from time with one of his side’s few opportunities. The Bianconeri’s last league defeat at the Juventus Stadium was on January 6, 2013, against Sampdoria. “The result leaves a slightly sour taste,” Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. “We need to be more confident in our ability and to not lose heart when we don’t score. The players did everything required of them for 70 minutes, apart from scoring.” It was Stefano Colantuono’s first match in charge of Udinese – although his 200th as coach in the top flight. “Juventus forces you to defend. You have to be good at hitting them on the few sniffs of a chance you get,” Colantuono said. “That’s what we did. It’s not easy winning here … . Our spirit is to fight for every ball and you saw that.” In the evening matches, Fiorentina eased past 10-man AC Milan 2-0, while Sassuolo beat Napoli for the first time in Serie A, coming from behind to win 2-1. Inter Milan snatched a 1-0 win over 10-man Atalanta when on-loan Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic curled a stunning strike into the top right corner in the third minute of stoppage time. Newly promoted Carpi missed a penalty in its first-ever match in Serie A as they lost 5-2 at Sampdoria, which had David Ivan sent off late on. Frosinone was also playing in the top flight for the first time in their history and lost 2-1 at home to Torino, despite taking the lead in the seventh minute through Danilo Soddimo. Elsewhere, Chievo Verona won 3-1 at Empoli, and Palermo beat Genoa 1-0 with a stoppage-time strike from Abdelhamid El Kaoutari.last_img read more

Castaic parents get surveys

first_imgPearson, the mother of a sixth-grader and an eighth-grader, joined other parents in voicing distrust for the Hart district. They claim Hart promised to keep their children at West Ranch until a high school is built in Castaic – a plan delayed two years until 2010. Castaic students attended Valencia until West Ranch opened three years ago. “I was stunned at how we as a board were treated during this whole process,” board member Steve Sansone said. Taking the heat for the Hart district, board member Dennis King said it was unfortunate that promises were made that couldn’t be kept. Castaic High was expected to open in 2008, and the two-year delay would have resulted in unmanageable overcrowding at West Ranch, Hart officials said. “When we passed the recommendations, that was the best plan, and it was based on being able to open Castaic High School by 2007-08,” King said. “All boundaries are subject to changes in what develops. There’s never any guarantees.” connie.llanos@dailynews.com CASTAIC – Surveys were sent home Thursday with Castaic Middle School students to determine how many would opt to attend Valencia High over West Ranch High if open enrollment were offered. The plan to poll families came at a morning meeting Thursday when parents and Castaic school officials gathered to air complaints. Their target was the Hart High School District, which voted last week to change boundaries in the fall, sending Castaic students from West Ranch to Valencia to ease overcrowding. The board of the K-8 Castaic Union School District urged parents to drop ideas of suing the Hart district or recalling Hart board members, but it prodded them to remain vigilant and organized in their drive to keep their options open. “I am so disheartened today,” said a tearful Laura Pearson, Castaic school board member.
