He’s been waiting for the dream at Spurs to materialise but it hasn’t happened. He’s frustrated. “Do you think Harry would be happy, fulfilled and satisfied if he scores goals, break records but with no trophies at the end of his career? No. He will be upset and devastated.”I think that statement means Harry is off, he wants to win trophies and that will alert clubs.”I know Man United will be in for him because that type of player is perfect for them.

Cowboys overpower Souths in Cairns

first_imgIt was the first time the club has won three straight games without their inspirational playmaker, and suggests their premiership chances aren’t over yet despite losing both Thurston and co-captain Matt Scott to season-ending injuries.The win came despite a second-half breakdown in discipline and ball-handling from the Cowboys, with their completion rate dropping from 85 per cent to 76 per cent by the end of the game. They also appeared to have continued their unlucky run of injuries, with winger Antonio Winterstein sidelined with a calf injury while Scott Bolton and John Asiata both had scares but returned to the field.An opening salvo penalties saw both teams given perfect attacking opportunities, with the Cowboys denied by a fast hand on Jake Granville’s arm at dummy-half before Lachlan Coote defused Adam Reynold’s grubber, only to be tackled high and earn a penalty.It was the Rabbitohs who scored first, when an error followed by a penalty from the Cowboys gave Souths the attacking field position. Two right-foot steps from Adam Reynolds close to the line created some space on his inside and the halfback sent Cody Walker through to dive over between the posts.The Cowboys immediately struck back, with Jason Taumalolo taking a short ball from Granville to crash over and post North Queensland’s first points.Despite several penalties going against them the Cowboys managed to take some form of control of the game, and they took the lead when a cut-out ball from Lachlan Coote found Kyle Feldt unmarked for his team’s second try.Granville notched up his second try assist in much the same way as his first, feeding a short ball to Coen Hess who crashed over to make three unanswered tries for the Cowboys leading into half-time.It was end-to-end football for the first five minutes of the second half, but once again Reynolds’ kicking game wasn’t up to scratch, with his high kick being fielded by Feldt in-goal. On the ensuing set Cowboys pivot Te Maire Martin went within a metre of the line, and soon after Sam Burgess made his second error of the afternoon, knocking on as he worked it out of his own end. Cowboys hooker Jake Granville didn’t waste any time making use of the field position, catching Reynolds out of position to scoot through a gaping hole and claim a try to go with his two assists.Souths seemed to spot a golden opportunity when Martin knocked-on in the face of the Rabbitohs defenders, but they spilled the ball a metre away from the Cowboys’ line as their completion rate fell to 50 per cent.It finally came together for the Rabbitohs after a strong set resulted in Braidon Burns crossing out wide when Cowboys’ defensive line, absent an injured Winterstein, was caught out by a fast pass from Robert Jennings. The errors for both sides began to pile on, with the Rabbitohs losing the ball through Robbie Farah before Scott Bolton did the same to bring the second-half errors to eight each. The Cowboys eventually put consecutive sets together and Coote decided to get some finals practice in, taking the opportunity to slot a field goal and take the Cowboys’ lead to 13 points. Cowboys 23 (Jason Taumalolo, Kyle Feldt, Coen Hess, Jake Granville tries; Ethan Lowe 4 goals) def. Rabbitohs 10 (Cody Walker, Braidon Burns tries; Adam Reynolds 1 goal) at Barlow Park. Half-time: 16-6. Crowd 11, unofficial votes: 3 points – Jake Granville; 2 points – Scott Bolton; 1 point – Kylelast_img read more

Warriors star Shaun Johnson out of Dragons clash

first_imgThe third-placed Warriors announced Mason Lino would start at halfback, with Anthony Gelling to make his season debut for Solomone Kata.The clash will lose some of its lustre because of Johnson’s injury, with the words “blockbuster”, “Dragons” and “Warriors” traditionally not belonging together.The two clubs – or three if you include the four years of the Warriors’ existence before St George and Illawarra merged – have made the finals just five times in the same season.They have never met in a finals match.This makes tonight’s match the biggest played between the two sides.And despite them sharing just one loss between them this year – in the Warriors’ nine-point defeat last week to Brisbane – it’s potentially crucial to shaping their seasons.Stephen Kearney’s men have a difficult run ahead with games against Melbourne, the Wests Tigers and Sydney Roosters, and can ill afford to hit that patch off two-straight losses.This has also historically been a defining point in the Dragons’ season over the past few years.The Red V’s fall from the top of the ladder has started around Anzac Day in two of the past three years, and coach Paul McGregor has already spoken at length about why he believes 2018 will be different.Essential to that is the Dragons’ spine of youngster Matt Dufty, star recruit Ben Hunt, last year’s Dally M five-eighth of the year Gareth Widdop and NSW State of Origin hopeful Cameron McInnes.”They’re probably the form spine of the competition,” Kearney said.”They’re putting real pressure on opposition teams with the way they attack.”The Dragons have averaged a league-best 32 points a game over the first six rounds, while Widdop leads the in try assists and line-break assists.At the back, Dufty’s speed and step have brought him six tries, a figure bettered only by the eight of Warriors winger David Fusitu’a.For Kearney, the best way to defend against the 22-year-old Dufty, who heads the NRL in line breaks, is to avoid giving him the ball. Failing that, stay switched on.”We’ve seen what he’s capable of,” he said.”We just have to make sure that, when he does carry the footy, we’re all alert because he catches the ball on one side of the field and he’s on the other side of the park very quickly.”St George lllawarra have won 13 of their past 14 matches against the Warriors, and 21 of the 26 the teams have played.The Dragons (79.8 per cent) and Warriors (79.7 per cent) have the best completion rates in the competition.The Warriors are making the most offloads with 16.5 per gamelast_img read more

Real Madrid is proclaimed champion of the Super Cup after winning Atlético on penalties

first_imgIn minute 79, Atlético found the hole and had the best chance of the match through an indefatigable Morata, possibly the best of the athletic. The striker attacked the center of Trippier behind Ramos, but his placed and not very powerful shot did not surprise Courtois, who was gaining prominence over the minutes. Moments later it was Giménez who had the goal with an imperial shot that Casemiro avoided with a great cut.Tiredness, the great ally of the spectator Shortly after the end of the regulation time the players noticed the weight on their legs. The game was opened at times with small cracks caused by fatigue and in the last seconds he could opt for each side. First Rodrygo, who found a loose ball inside the area whose shot was centered and at the hands of an always well placed Oblak. Second Thomas, in the last one, who tried to surprise Courtois with a foul that seemed a center to the area.The extension was exciting and the two teams implied that they didn’t want the penalties. Atlético seemed to be cooler with two dizzying arrivals, especially one from Vitolo that Courtois stopped with Ramos’ defensive collaboration. In the second half it was Morata who tried it with a Chilean who broke the Belgian goalkeeper correcting his previous error at the start. Ten minutes left for penalties. Mariano, who could the unexpected hero, missed a shot inside the area that cleared Oblak and Courtois a satin of Correa with little angle. Five of the end Valverde made the great maneuver of the night avoiding Morata’s hand in hand with an ugly entrance but at the same time providential.In the penalties, Real Madrid had more control or luck, as everyone wants to see it, than Atlético and got 2-0 thanks to the success of Carvajal and Rodrygo and the failures of Saul and Thomas. Modric put the 3-0, Trippier extended the agony until Ramos, again the captain, sentenced the duel with the final 4-1. Curiously, Atlético was better than against Barcelona and Real Madrid worse than against Valencia, but football has these things.Real Madrid takes the first title of the season. A Super Cup that was gaining importance with the passing of the matches and that has shown that it has been a success by Luis Rubiales and the Royal Spanish Football Federation. This format is worth it and the final is for whites, just winners.DATA SHEETREAL MADRID: Courtois; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Mendy; Valverde, Casemiro, Kroos (Vinícius, min. 103), Modric; Isco (Rodrygo, min. 60) and Jovic (Mariano, min. 83).ATHLETIC OF MADRID: Oblak; Trippier, Giménez (Savic, min. 98), Felipe, Lodi (Llorente, min. 89); Herrera (Vitolo, min. 56), Thomas, Saul, Correa; João Félix (Arias, min. 101) and Morata.PENALTY:1 – 0, goal, Carvajal.1 – 0, fail, Saul. to the stick.2 – 0, goal, Rodrygo.2 – 0, fail, Thomas. curtuas3 – 0, goal, Modric.3 – 1, goal, Trippier.4 – 1, goal, Sergio Ramos.REFEREE: José Luis Sánchez Martínez (C. Maurciano). He admonished Mendy (min.92), Modric (min.93), Valverde (min.111) and Carvajal (min.115) by Real Madrid. And a (Felipe, min.27), Thomas (min.74), Corrrea (min.115) and Savic (min.115) in Atlético. He expelled Valverde (min. 115) for direct red.STADIUM: King Abdullah of Jeddah, 59,053 spectators. Again Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid in a final and another final that went beyond the regulatory time, demonstrating the equality of these two teams in this type of matches and that both have great respect. The last one, the European Super Cup, went to the rojiblancos, but this one was for the meringues in an overly tactical match that opened in the extension fruit of fatigue and that ended with the final triumph for those of Zidane. The Frenchman is still rooted with a stratospheric brand: nine of nine in the finals.The final was tremendously matched, as the ‘Mono’ Burgos warned before the crash, assuring that it would not be very different from the league match played in the Metropolitan and that it ended precisely with a 0-0 result. Zidane repeated the formula of the match against Valencia, something similar to a Simeone that only made a change in his lineup: Giménez for Savic.The two teams went to King Abdullah of Jeddah, who this time touched the full, with a clear idea: prioritize the defense over the attack and not risk too much. In the first forty-five minutes, Real Madrid and Atlético had their moments of domination. The whites, when they found Kroos, the organizer and shadow of Zidane in the field. The athletic, thanks to the high pressure that prevented the departure of his opponent’s ball.The ball was clearly for Real Madrid (62-38) after the first thirty minutes, but it was an inert possession. The two teams practically didn’t hurt each other and they knew each other too well. Of course, the best chances, to say something, were for Zidane’s: Casemiro, Modric and Mendy with two distant shots and a header from Casemiro that went high by little. For its part, the best of Simeone’s was for Joao Felix, who shot fatally after a gift from Ramos at the ball.The second half did not change anything about the game, but five minutes into the second half the final could fall on the side of Real Madrid. Jovic was strong among the centrals and his low shot was touching the long stick of Oblak. First time of the Serbian, who again wasted his minutes as a starter before the loss of the irreplaceable Karim Benzema, suitable for the following duels of his team.The time for the game arrived and it was time for the changes. Simeone made a statement of intent giving Vitolo entry for Herrera, while Zidane opted for Rodrygo and retiring an Isco who this time did not find the magic of the last meeting against Valencia. The minutes passed and the match remained the same: much fear of failure and much lateral center that always cleared the rival defense. Real Madrid wins on penalties after being more effective (4-1) than AtléticoThe match was even, although the whites had the best chancesCourtois and Valverde, MVP of the final, keys to the final victory of Real Madridcenter_img Real Madrid celebrates the title of the Spanish Super Cup.

Free way for Reinier

first_imgThe agreement is total between the parties. Madrid will pay to get one of the best projects of Brazilian football 30 million euros, its clause (in July it rose to 35 and in January 2021, to 70) of termination since last November, when the young man decided to renew with a downward fine to facilitate his departure. In the Bernabéu they read the play wonderfully and soon offered the necessary figure to get their incorporation, which will take place in February in Castile: of the total amount, 80% will go to Flamengo, 10% the player and his family and the remaining 10%, the agent. The main premise was to give the least possible clues because There was fear that FIFA regulations regarding the acquisition of minors would legally complicate Madrid, Flamengo or the player. That fear is behind with the coming of age of Reinier, who this Sunday in Colombia (Monday at 02:30 in Spain) will debut in the Pre-Olympic Championship with the U-23 of his country. That match, as AS said, it will cause the official announcement to be delayed at least until Monday by the clubs, which will do so at the same time.

This Sunday, January 19, Flamengo’s half-time midfielder turns 18, the moment that Real Madrid was waiting for, from then on, to formalize his signing for the next six and a half seasons, as this newspaper advanced on January 7.

That was when, in a meeting at the Flamengo concentration hotel, the family, the soccer player himself and his representative began to celebrate what was going to become a dream come true. The logical course of events led to a deal for the purchase, news that the father, Maurio Brasília, champion of futsal with Brazil in 1985, communicated to his crack by phone, He was on vacation.The announcement, starting MondayAfter that, everyone involved in this signing was put to work with the famous fringes. One of the most important was to pass the medical examination, procedure resolved between January 10 and 11 at Comary Farm, the CBF headquarters in Teresópolis. The signature was the most, for which Reinier made an express trip to Spain in the middle of this week. 19last_img read more
