Mohammed Anas #AbsaPrem— Given Zondi (@Mgivovo) March 18, 2017 Share on: WhatsApp Johannesburg, South Africa | AFP | South Africa-based Ghanaian footballer Mohammed Anas was so excited after scoring twice in a top-flight match that he thanked his wife — and his girlfriend.The goals for Free State Stars in an away league draw with Ajax Cape Town this weekend earned striker Anas the man of the match award from the league sponsors.He got a statuette and a cash prize plus an obligatory post-match touchline interview.What followed was a hilarious blunder as Anas made a slip of the tongue that went viral.“I appreciate my fans,” said Anas, “and my wife and my girlfriend.”Realising that he had scored a spectacular “own goal”, he added: “I’m so sorry, my wife. I love you so much from my heart.”“Two goals, two girls. Mohammed Anas,” tweeted Given Zondi.last_img read more

Ronaldo fitness worry ahead of Clasico

first_imgSpanish sports daily As reported it was simply a “precaution” as Real look to trim the 11-point gap between themselves and leaders Barcelona, who are unbeaten in La Liga this season.“He will play in the Clasico barring last-minute surprise,” the paper added.Zinedine Zidane’s Real, who also trail Atletico Madrid and Valencia, are fourth in the table and realistically must win this weekend to remain in the running for the Spanish title.Share on: WhatsApp Madrid, Spain | AFP | Cristiano Ronaldo trained alone on Thursday ahead of Real Madrid’s clash against Barcelona this weekend, after sustaining a knock to his calf during the Club World Cup in Abu Dhabi.The Portugal star received rough treatment as he scored the winner in last Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Brazilians Gremio in the final, but Ronaldo had insisted he would be fit for the visit of Barcelona.“Cristiano Ronaldo trained alone out on the pitch, both with and without the ball,” Real wrote on their website, two days ahead of Saturday’s Clasico at the Santiago Bernabeu.Following Real’s return to Spain, the five-time Ballon d’Or recipient had remained in the gym on Tuesday and Wednesday before finally lacing up his boots for an individual training session on Thursday.last_img read more

Roma end Napoli’s 10-win streak to throw Serie A title race wide open

first_imgWhen Lorenzo Insigne gave Napoli the lead from close range after six minutes it seemed the evening would be straightforward.But Turkey’s Cengiz Under levelled just a minute later with a deflected shot. That set the stage for Edin Dzeko to carve out a little bit of personal history.He made it 2-1 in the 26th minute with a header from an Alessandro Florenzi cross before he curled in a terrific left-foot strike from the edge of the area in the 79th minute for 3-1.That goal allowed the Bosnian striker to become the first player to score at least 50 goals in three of Europe’s major leagues — Italy’s Serie A, the German Bundesliga and the Premier League in England.Diego Perotti made it 4-1 ten minutes from time after pouncing on a lazy clearance from on-loan Roma left-back Mario Rui. Dries Mertens pulled one back for Napoli in time added-on but the three points allowed Roma to move into third place in the table, albeit 16 points behind the pacesetters.Argentina striker Dybala marked his comeback after a month on the sidelines by scoring a last-gasp winner in Juve’s 1-0 victory at Lazio in a perfect boost ahead of next week’s Champions League clash at Tottenham.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2center_img Rome, Italy | AFP | Napoli’s 10-match winning streak in Serie A came to an end on Saturday when they slumped to a shock 4-2 home defeat to AS Roma as the leaders suffered just their second league loss this season.The result kept Napoli on top of the table but their lead is now just one point after Juventus earlier defeated Lazio courtesy of an injury-time strike from Paulo Dybala.Juventus, crucially, also have a game in hand.last_img read more

Giroud kickstarts Chelsea career with Southampton fightback

first_img“The most important thing is to never give up, believe in our quality, play our game and I am proud of what we have done today.”Defeat is another body blow to Saints’ chances of avoiding relegation as they remain rooted in the bottom three when for so long they seemed set for a first home win in the Premier League since November. Dusan Tadic and debutant Jan Bednarek put the hosts in command, but Giroud struck either side of Eden Hazard’s equaliser to cut the gap on Liverpool and Tottenham in the fight for a top-four finish and Champions League football next season to seven points.“As long as it is mathematically possible we will believe we can reach the top four,” added Giroud. “We have got five finals to play, after that we will see.”The two sides will meet again in the FA Cup semi-finals next weekend, and Southampton will do well to raise themselves for cup glory with their place in the Premier League next season looking ever more precarious. Southampton, United States | AFP | Olivier Giroud hopes to have kickstarted his Chelsea career after coming off the bench to inspire an eight-minute turnaround from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Southampton on Saturday with his first Premier League goals for the club.The French international striker has largely struggled to make an impact since his deadline day move from Arsenal in January, putting his place at the World Cup at risk.“I’ve been through some difficulties in my career, but I always try to come back stronger and it happened today,” said Giroud.center_img “As has been the case all year apparently we’ve got a soft underbelly,” said Saints boss Mark Hughes, whose three Premier League games in charge have now all ended in defeats. “When the momentum shifts against us we can’t get a platform and wait until the momentum swings our way again.”Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2last_img read more

Guardiola’s birthday ruined, Arsenal held as Chelsea have the blues

first_imgGuardiola. PHOTO @mancityLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Pep Guardiola’s 49th birthday celebrations went flat as Fernandinho’s late own goal forced Manchester City to settle for a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace, while Chelsea’s top-four bid was dented by a surprise 1-0 defeat at Newcastle on Saturday.On a busy day of top-flight action, the pitchside VAR monitor was used in the Premier League for the first time at Norwich, with Tottenham forced to settle for a goalless stalemate at Watford and Arsenal held to a 1-1 draw by Sheffield United.It was the drama at the Etihad Stadium that took the spotlight as Fernandinho’s last-gasp blunder left Guardiola in no mood to party after City’s faint hopes of retaining the title suffered another hammer blow.The champions trail Liverpool by 13 points ahead of the runaway leaders’ clash with rivals Manchester United on Sunday.“It was a tight game. It’s difficult to analyse when they shoot from one corner and have no more chances,” Guardiola said.“We had many chances, unfortunately we could not win.”Cenk Tosun marked his first league start since his loan move from Everton with his maiden goal for the Eagles, the Turkish striker netting a close-range strike from Martin Kelly’s flick in the 39th minute.Sergio Aguero appeared to have turned the game on its head in the 82nd minute when the Argentine striker bagged his 250th goal in 360 games for the club.Aguero put City ahead in the 87th minute with a typically predatory header from Benjamin Mendy’s cross.But there was a sting in the tale for Guardiola as Fernandinho turned Zaha’s cross into his own net in the 90th minute to end second-placed City’s run of three successive league wins.– Chelsea downed late on –Chelsea would have cemented their grip on fourth place with a win on Tyneside, but they were unable to muster the cutting edge required to break down stubborn Newcastle and fell to Isaac Hayden’s header with just 20 seconds left in stoppage-time, losing 1-0.Chelsea’s first defeat in four league matches leaves them five points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United.After four league games without a victory, this was a much-needed success for Newcastle, but a wasted opportunity for Chelsea to open up a bigger gap in the race to qualify for the Champions League.“We can’t work anymore in training on finishing. You need to have that killer instinct in front of goal. We need to score more goals from front-line areas if we are going to get to where we want to be,” Lampard said. “It’s quite clear from what I am saying now that we know where we need to strengthen but we shall see.”At Vicarage Road, Troy Deeney’s 70th-minute spot-kick was saved by Paulo Gazzaniga before Tottenham’s Erik Lamela was denied a last-gasp winner by Ignacio Pussetto’s goal-line clearance.With England captain Harry Kane sidelined after hamstring surgery, Tottenham have gone three league games without scoring.Jose Mourinho’s side are without a win in four league matches since December 26 and sit eight points behind Chelsea.Toothless Tottenham thought they had stolen the points in stoppage-time when Lamela flicked Serge Aurier’s cross towards goal, but Watford’s new signing Pussetto cleared off the line, with goal-line technology showing just 10.04mm of the ball had not gone over.Arsenal are 10 points adrift of the top four after the Blades continued their superb first season back in the Premier League.Gabriel Martinelli, 18, broke the deadlock in first-half stoppage-time at the Emirates Stadium with a clinical finish from Bukayo Saka’s cross.But Chris Wilder’s side snatched an 83rd-minute equaliser when John Fleck lashed home after Arsenal failed to clear.Bottom of the table Norwich’s vital 1-0 win over fellow strugglers Bournemouth saw the pitchside monitor finally used to decide a red card call.Norwich took the lead when Bournemouth defender Steve Cook was sent off after flinging himself across the goal to block Teemu Pukki’s shot with his hand.Pukki fired home the resulting penalty in the 33rd minute, but the Canaries had to survive a tense finish after Ben Godfrey was sent off in the 76th minute.Godfrey’s foul on Callum Wilson was ruled a red card by referee Paul Tierney after he checked with the monitor, a move that followed advice to officials from Premier League chiefs this week to use the screen more often.Wolves climbed to sixth after a 3-2 win at Southampton, Everton drew 1-1 at West Ham and Brighton shared a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

German football kicks off as Europe begins reopening

first_imgPedri Alatras, who works at the Kavouri beach near Athens, said disinfecting lounge chairs after each customer was a burden, especially in temperatures approaching 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit); “it’s exhausting but we have to respect the measures,” he said.Officials in England warned people to stay away from newly reopened beauty spots and avoid overcrowding.In Asia, malls reopened in the Philippines’ capital Manila but few shoppers showed up, while in Vietnam, hundreds queued to visit the newly reopened UNESCO heritage site of Ha Long Bay.– ‘A Europe without borders’ –Germany, under pressure to follow Italy by allowing in EU visitors, instead reopened its border with tiny Luxembourg.Germany also saw the latest in a growing wave of anti-lockdown protests, with thousands gathering Saturday in major cities for rallies.“We want a return to normality and to not have any impediment on our public freedom,” said a protester in Dortmund who gave her name only as Sabine, 50.France, Switzerland and Poland also saw protests.Perhaps the best chance of ending the pandemic is a vaccine, and US President Donald Trump voiced hope late Friday that one would be available by late 2020, “maybe before” — a timeline deemed unrealistic by many experts.But amid an enormous push for medical and scientific tools to fight the virus, the US on Saturday approved a home-based kit for coronavirus tests, adding a simple option for a country eager to expand its COVID-19 testing.– Economic havoc –Since emerging in China late last year, the coronavirus has whipped up a catastrophic economic storm.After Europe’s powerhouse Germany tipped into recession this week, the government on Saturday announced a 57 billion euro ($62 million) aid package to help local authorities weather the onslaught.In the US, the world’s worst-affected country with more than 88,000 deaths and 1.47 million confirmed infections, retail sales have plummeted with no certainty when they might recover.Former president Barack Obama took a swipe at the response to the pandemic ravaging America, telling graduates at a virtual commencement ceremony that many leaders today “aren’t even pretending to be in charge” — a remark widely regarded as a rare rebuke of his successor Donald Trump.“I hope you are bold,” Obama added.Forty-eight of the 50 US states have now eased lockdown rules to some extent.The virus is still surging in Latin America, and Chile’s capital Santiago spent Saturday under its first total lockdown following a 60 percent leap in confirmed cases.Brazil’s virus death toll passed 15,000 on Saturday and it became the country with the fourth-largest coronavirus caseload with 230,000 infections.Peru said it will construct a fast-build hospital in the Amazon in response to infections sweeping through indigenous communities.Share on: WhatsApp Dortmund’s Norwegian forward Erling Braut Haaland (L) celebrates with teammates after scoring the opening goal for Dortmund during the Bundesliga football match against SchalkeBerlin, Germany | AFP |  Top flight German football kicked off again on Saturday as the French returned to the beach and Italy announced a resumption of European tourism, providing much-needed relief against the relentless drumbeat of death and economic devastation wreaked by the coronavirus pandemic.The reopenings mark the beginning of a tentative return to normality in some of the countries worst affected by the global outbreak, which has killed almost 310,000 people according to official tolls, and infected over 4.5 million.As governments sought to restart economic activity while treading cautiously amid the lingering — though in many cases waning — pandemic, Germany’s Bundesliga became the first major European football league to resume.Italy, for a long stretch the world’s worst-hit country, announced that European Union tourists would be allowed to visit from June 3 and a 14-day mandatory quarantine would be scrapped.“We’re facing a calculated risk in the knowledge that the contagion curve may rise again,” Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said during a televised address.“We have to accept it otherwise we will never be able to start up again.”But as governments lift restrictions to boost stagnant economies, there have been widespread fears of a second wave of infections that could necessitate renewed lockdowns.Such fears have delayed the return of team sport, and on Saturday all eyes were on the Bundesliga’s opening games, which were played to vacant, echoing stadiums.– ‘World looking to Germany’ –“It’s sad that matches are played in empty stadiums, but it’s better than nothing,” said 45-year-old Borussia Dortmund fan Marco Perz, beer in hand, as he prepared to watch the game on TV.Dortmund’s prolific striker Erling Braut Haaland was the first goalscorer after the two-month shutdown, helping his team thrash rivals Schalke 4-0.He celebrated by dancing alone — away from his paplauding teammates — in keeping with the strict hygiene guidelines which allowed the league to return.“The whole world will be looking at Germany, to see how we get it done,” said Hansi Flick, the boss of league-leaders Bayern Munich.Russia has announced its football league will return next month and plans to lift restrictions despite recording its highest daily death toll on Saturday, at 119.Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said the government would seek to extend the country’s state of emergency for “about a month”, until the transition out of lockdown is completed.In France, the first weekend after the most strict measures were lifted saw many venture out into the spring sunshine — and hit the beach.In the Riviera city of Nice, keen swimmers jumped into the surf at daybreak.“We were impatient because we swim here all year round,” said retiree Gilles, who declined to give his full name.– Here comes the sun –With the Northern Hemisphere’s summer approaching, governments are moving to help tourism industries salvage something from the wreckage.Parasols and sunloungers have popped up on coastlines in Italy and Greece, which opened its beaches on Saturday.last_img read

La Liga resumes after three months away as Sevilla defeat Betis

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp For now though, stands remain empty, the voices of the players and coaches audible and the atmosphere strange. On television, fans at home had the option to add virtual supporters taken from the computer game FIFA, as well as chanting, which ebbed and flowed according to the action.When the excellent Ocampos and Fernando scored, there was cheering, and when substitutes came and went, there was applause.Earlier, the players had arrived wearing masks and gloves and their temperatures were taken before entering the stadium. Outside, around 200 supporters had come to greet the team buses but they dispersed shortly after, with 600 police and security personnel in attendance to prevent mass gatherings.“No fans allowed but we’re here and we can’t wait,” shouted a 60-year-old supporter in a Sevilla shirt.There was a minute of silence held before kick-off in memory of the victims of the pandemic, with the players standing at a distance from each other around the centre circle. In the 20th minute, there was applause to pay tribute to those working on the front line.In the stands, the substitutes, still wearing masks, sat spread out in the rows behind their coaches and Sevilla’s were among the few celebrating when the goals flew in shortly after half-tiime.They were comfortable winners as Ocampos scored a penalty after Marc Bartra was ajudged to have pushed Luuk de Jong and, six minutes later, a delightful Ocampos flick at the near post allowed Fernando to head in a second. Lucas Ocampos (R) celebrates with teammates after putting Sevilla ahead in their 2-0 win over Betis as La Liga returned after a three-month suspension on ThursdayMadrid, Spain | AFP |  Sevilla beat local rivals Real Betis 2-0 as La Liga returned after three months away on Thursday, becoming the second of Europe’s five major leagues to resume following the coronavirus pandemic.After the Bundesliga in Germany restarted on May 16, La Liga opened its doors again to players but not supporters at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, where the usually vibrant Seville derby was played in front of empty stands.The game was the first in Spain’s top flight since March 10 but 93 days later another professional fixture has been completed without incident, offering further encouragement to the Premier League in England and Serie A in Italy. Both are set to return next week.Lucas Ocampos gave Sevilla the lead from a 56th-minute penalty and Fernando Reges then added the second goal for the home side, who are third in the table.This was the first leg of a 39-day sprint to the finish in La Liga, that will see teams playing every three days for five and a half weeks and undergoing stern examinations of their fitness.Both coaches made use of their new allocation of five substitutes and there was a drinks breaks in each half but the contest lost its fluency late on, in part because Betis never looked like staging a comeback.Victory strengthens Sevilla’s hold on third place as they move four points above Getafe and Real Sociedad below them. Betis sit 12th and face the possibility of being dragged into a relegation battle.This was as far from a typical Seville derby as could be imagined, a pale shadow of the division’s most heated fixture and a clear demonstration of what has been sacrificed to keep the season going.– Virtual supporters –“I always believed we would play again,” said La Liga president Javier Tebas, who had also indicated on Thursday that “10 or 15 per cent” of fans could attend stadiums before the season finishes on July 19.last_img read more

Coutinho reported to complete Bayern coach Flick’s starting 11

first_imgPhilippe CoutinhoKampala, Uganda | XINHUA |   Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho is said to be Bayern coach Hansi Flick’s missing jigsaw piece for Saturday’s Champions League duel against Chelsea.The 28-year-old is most likely going to replace injured French forward Kingsley Coman along the left flank, although he has only been on the pitch in action for 27 minutes since March.“He is in good shape at present and show his qualities,” the 55-year-old Bayern head coach commented.The last 16 second leg (3-0 in the first) could be the Brazilian’s last chance to present himself as the gifted on-loan footballer from Barcelona appears to be heading for English Premier League’s club Arsenal in the 2020/2021 season.For the other positions, the Bayern head coach will most likely choose the back-row of Alphonso Davies, David Alaba, Jerome Boateng, and Kimmich in front of keeper Manuel Neuer. Thiago and Goretzka are also likely to play in central midfield next to the forwards Mueller, Serge Gnabry, Coutinho, and Robert Lewandowski.****XINHUAShare on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Installation of the rainbow crosswalks capped a project to repave most of Key West’s historic Duval Street. The rainbow flag is a recognized symbol of LGBTQ unity. (Rob O’Neal/Florida Keys News Bureau via AP)Spearheaded by the city and the Key West Business Guild, the crosswalks are composed of pre-formed thermoplastic color stripes. After the stripes were laid on the street by city workers, they were heat-treated with propane torches to affix the colors permanently on the pavement. “The rainbow crosswalks, to us in the City of Key West, mean that everybody is welcome, everybody is equal, everybody is recognized and, once again, that we do really abide by the ‘One Human Family’ spirit,” said Key West Mayor Teri Johnston. “Everybody is a part of Key West.”https://www.850wftl.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/KeysRainbowCrosswalk.mp3“One Human Family” was adopted as the city’s official philosophy in 2000, proclaiming equality and acceptance for all. Key West is internationally known for its heritage of diversity and its reputation as a leading LGBTQ vacation destination.The crosswalks’ installation was the final step in a project to repave and restripe Key West’s historic Duval Street from the 100 block to Truman Avenue. Rainbow crosswalks were originally installed on Duval in 2015, quickly becoming a city landmark and popular photo stop. Their replacement, necessitated by the repaving project, also allowed for a redesign that makes the rainbow colors stand out more vividly against the asphalt. KEY WEST, Fla. — Tourists are walking on rainbows in Key West to support the LGBTQ community. Workers installed four permanent rainbow crosswalks Monday at the intersection of Duval and Petronia streets, in the heart of the island’s LGBTQ entertainment district.last_img read more
