first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Newcastle striker Rondon: I chose number 9 for Shearer pressureby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveSalomon Rondon has revealed he chose the number nine jersey at Newcastle on purpose. The Venezuelan has been in excellent form for the Magpies, who he joined from West Bromwich Albion on loan in the summer. Rondon has always wore the number 23 jersey during his career, but he revealed that he enjoys the pressure of wearing the jersey previously worn by club legend and the Premier League’s all-time top goalscorer Alan Shearer.”It was a peculiar story,” Rondon said.”The ’23’ was free, my number of always, and the ‘9’. One of the people who closed the transfer told me: ‘The ‘9’ is a very important number at Newcastle because it was led by Shearer, who is the club’s top scorer and the history of the Premier League. If you dare to wear it, it will be fine. ‘ And so it has been.”It is a pressure that pleases me. I work well on pressure because it is where one more demands and is forced to give the maximum.”We exchanged some tweets, but personally I still do not know (Shearer). I would love it (to meet him), not only for what it has been at Newcastle, but for what it has represented for football.” last_img read more

first_imgArnautovic agent: West Ham should accept lucky China offerby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveWest Ham United striker Marko Arnautovic wants to move to China.That is according to his agent and brother, Danijel.West Ham have received a £35million bid from an unnamed Chinese Super League club for the Austrian. And Danijel says the club should accept after paying 20m to sign his brother from Stoke City in the summer of 2017.He said: “West Ham bought Marko for peanuts. They paid £20m for him, which is nothing in the current market.”They bought him to keep them in the Premier League last season and he did that. He took every award at the club; best player, signing of the season and the players’ award.”Now West Ham have a fantastic offer. It is close to double what they paid for him.”He wants to go to a new market and challenge for titles. This is what he wants. It is his great desire that West Ham accept the offer from China.”He knows the West Ham fans love him and he has a special connection with them, but things move on, this is the world of sport, and he hopes they can understand.”Marko is professional and is preparing himself for the Arsenal game. He will give 100 per cent for West Ham. That is Marko. He will never change.”Until he is no longer a West Ham player, he will give everything to the club.

He did well, it’s the first game he played.”He has a lot of experience and personality. What he says, the people follow him in the locker room.”He added: “He is a player who can play many positions and has a good personality – that’s why he is so important for us.

first_imgHouston walk on scholarships awarded at team film session.YouTube/UHAthleticsWe can’t get enough of videos of college football walk-ons getting awarded scholarships. The life of a walk-on can be pretty thankless at times, especially when players have to balance schoolwork and all of the rigors of Division I athletics, without the benefit of a scholarship. A full ride can be life-changing for walk-ons and their families, and these videos always show how important those guys are to their teammates.On Wednesday, Houston head coach Tom Herman awarded two walk-ons—senior tight end Hayden Daniels and senior cornerback Tyler White—with scholarships for their final years. Herman was a bit tricky about it, opening by getting on the walk-ons who hadn’t yet had holds lifted by the university, chastising the group for a lack of “urgency,” before surprising the pair with their full rides. Daniels appeared in four games for the Cougars last year, while White played in all 13 games, registering 12 total tackles and fielding a crucial onside kick that helped spark Houston’s 35-34 comeback win over Pittsburgh in the Armed Forces Bowl.last_img read more

first_imgWhen Gregg Berhalter was contemplating how to handle a potential eight-day stretch of three knockout round matches, capped by clashes against Jamaica and likely Mexico, it is a safe bet he decided some lineup rotation would be necessary for the U.S. national team. Now, after watching the starting lineup he deployed against Jamaica play the team’s best soccer of the Gold Cup, Berhalter may have to reconsider any thoughts of changes heading into Sunday’s final against Mexico. The 16 minutes played before a weather delay halted proceedings in Nashville on Wednesday for 80 minutes were the best soccer the Americans have played under Berhalter, and you can’t really blame him if he wants to see how that same group could fare against a Mexico side coming off a pair of knockout round matches that both went through the 120 minutes of regulation and overtime. It sounds like an easy enough decision, but there are some lineup choices that won’t be simple. Starting Jozy Altidore ahead of Gyasi Zardes isn’t even a discussion, no matter how much Berhalter has tried to make it sound like a difficult call.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar 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 Then you have the right wing role, which Jordan Morris filled against Jamaica, replacing Tyler Boyd after Boyd’s rough outing in the quarterfinal against Curacao. Morris has an experience edge over Boyd. He has played and scored against Mexico. He has played in, and scored a winner, in a Gold Cup final as well. Of course, you can argue that he’s still not that experienced playing as a winger, but his speed should help put some pressure on Mexican left back Jesus Gallardo, who still loves to get forward more than defend. The more difficult decisions lie along the backline, where Reggie Cannon and Matt Miazga stepped in for Nick Lima and Walker Zimmerman, respectively, against Jamaica. It was believed that those moves were an attempt to keep the squad fresh, with Lima and Zimmerman likely to regain their starting spots for the final. GFX Projected XI vs. Mexico 07072019That is far from a sure thing though. Miazga has experience playing against Mexico, having posted a strong performance in a 2018 friendly victory that was remembered more for Miazga gesturing to Diego Lainez that he was too short, which set off a firestorm of controversy. Miazga wasn’t exactly dominant against Jamaica, but he is a better passer than Zimmerman, and might work better as a central defense partner with Aaron Long, who can cover ground and leave the passing to Miazga. Mexico also deploys Raul Jimenez as a lone striker, and Long is sure to have his hands full with the Wolves striker while Miazga provides support. At right back, Lima came into the Gold Cup as the clear-cut starter, but Cannon made the most of his starting opportunities against Panama and Jamaica. He was particularly impressive against Jamaica, where his defensive qualities stood out. Lima is a bigger attacking threat than Cannon, but if Berhalter feels Cannon is the better defender, and he is no longer looking for the right back spot to also moonlight as a defensive midfielder, then the FC Dallas youngster could be called upon to try and contain Mexico playmaker Rodolfo Pizarro, who deploys on the left wing. Being benched for the final doesn’t mean that some of those not chosen to start can’t still have a major role to play. The history of the USA-Mexico rivalry in the Gold Cup final is filled with examples of substitutes who either helped their teams win, like Benny Feilhaber in 2007, or lose, like Jonathan Bornstein in the 2011 Gold Cup final.last_img read more

first_img Rohan Sen DubaiJanuary 8, 2019UPDATED: January 8, 2019 13:25 IST Rishabh Pant was the second highest run-scorer in the recently-concluded Border-Gavaskar Test series (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSRishabh Pant gained a record 673 ratings points in the latest ICC Test rankingsPant equalled Farokh Engineer’s feat by gaining 21 positions to be ranked 17thPant took 20 catches and scored 350 runs in the four-match Test series against AustraliaRising star Rishabh Pant added another feather to his cap on Tuesday as he achieved a career-best ranking in the latest list released by the International Cricket Council. Pant gained 21 slots and reached 17th place to equal Farokh Engineer’s feat which he achieved in 1973.Pant’s 20 catches and 350 runs in the four-match Test series against Australia saw him gain 673 ratings points, which is the highest by an Indian wicketkeeper batsman. Pant beat the record set by MS Dhoni, who had gained 662 points, while Engineer had managed 619 points.Before the Border-Gavaskar series, Pant was placed 59th on the list but made rapid progress to move into the top-20 after just nine Test matches.He scored an unbeaten 159 in the final Test in Sydney which ended due to rain and bad weather conditions, thus, handing India a 2-1 series win, their first ever in a Test series in Australia.He finished the series as the second highest run scorer behind Cheteshwar Pujara’s tally of 521 runs at 74.40. Pujara also gained a spot to be third in the batsmen’s rankings behind Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson.Pant’s hundred at the Sydney Cricket Ground was his second in Test cricket after the Oval century and was also the first by an Indian wicket-keeper in Australia.He is now only one of four Indian wicketkeepers – Budhi Kunderan, Nayan Mongia and MS Dhoni – with a 150-plus score in Test cricket.The 21-year-old broke the record for the most catches by an Indian wicketkeeper during the series and also equalled a world record of AB de Villiers and Jack Russell for the most number of catches by a wicketkeeper in a Test, taking 11 catches during India’s 31-run win at the Adelaide Oval.advertisementDespite his groundbreaking series Down Under, Pant was ignored for the upcoming three-match ODI series against the Aussies starting January 12.But chief selector MSK Prasad assured that Pant remains in their plans for the World Cup with MS Dhoni being the primary keeper-batsman along with Dinesh Karthik.”There is absolutely no doubt that he is among one of those wicketkeepers [for World Cup]. All the three shortlisted keepers are doing well. He is definitely part of pour World Cup plans. It’s a part of the workload management we are following,” Prasad told India Today’s Boria Majumdar in an exclusive interview.Prasad also went on to reveal that Pant is carrying a few niggles in his body after playing four high-intensity Tests against Australia which is why they are looking to manage his workload at the moment.”You have seen how many players we are resting these days. This kid has played the T20s and the four high-intensity Tests. Body also takes a wear and tear. He is having a few niggles, he needs to recover. I am sure he will come back much stronger.”He is the only wicketkeeper to score hundred in England and Australia. We have given him some targets. We have set him he has to finish the matches and come. This Sydney Test match will be a turning point in his career,” Prasad added.Also Read | Rishabh Pant needs to bat at No. 6, he can convert starts into hundreds: Sunil GavaskarAlso Read | India vs Australia: Adam Gilchrist is Rishabh Pant’s latest fan Also Read | Watch: Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant sign SCG honours board after sensational hundredsAlso Read | Rishabh Pant will score more Test hundreds than MS Dhoni: Ricky PontingFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
