Mignolet keen to bounce back

first_img “I think we have more than enough players in the squad with more than enough ability and different types of players to create chances and score goals,” he said. “I don’t think that is the reason we didn’t manage to score. It was more about us conceding very early and Villa sitting back with two lines of five people, very much like last season against Chelsea. “I am sure if we got one, there would be more than one, and that is why it is a frustrating night. “It is something we have to take on the chin, move on, forget about it and make sure we score some goals on Tuesday (in the Reds’ opening Champions League fixture against Bulgarian outfit Ludogorets). “For me it is the first time in the Champions League so I am looking forward to seeing what it is like. “I’ve heard the atmosphere inside the stadium is something special so I will look forward to it, but the most important thing is the three points. “We have to do our jobs as professional players and get a good result because a good start in the Champions League is always important. “We have to try to forget (the occasion), we have to look at it as a game to get three points and step onto the pitch and do our jobs. “Once kick-off starts it is a game of 11 men against 11 men.” Saturday was the first time since December 2012 Liverpool lined up without last season’s two leading scorers Luis Suarez, who was sold to Barcelona in the summer, and Daniel Sturridge, out after getting injured on international duty. The pair contributed 56 league goals between them last season as the Reds ran champions Manchester City a close second but Mario Balotelli, a £16million arrival from AC Milan, never looked like coming close to emulating either during the 1-0 loss to Aston Villa at Anfield. Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet does not believe the team’s failure to score was purely down to their absences, for one reason or another. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Flying Eagles Go for Three Points against Qatar

first_imgFlying Eagles at training session in Poland. POLAND 2019Two-time runners up Nigeria will go all out for the three points when they take to the pitch of the 15,300 –capacity Tychy Stadium against Qatar in the opening match of Group D of the 2019 FIFA U20 World Cup finals this evening, according to team captain Ikouwem Udoh Utin.“It is a big match for us, as every other match in this competition. We know the importance of picking up the three points in our first match, which is why we are determined to go all out. “Taking the first three points will help us plan our approach better for the remaining matches in the group phase, and also boost our confidence,” Utin said at the team’s Vienna House Hotel in Katowice on Thursday. The team will leave their hotel in Katowice for the short drive to Tychy today.Tonight’s game kicks off at 5pm Nigeria time. The second match of Group D, between Ukraine and USA, will begin at 7.30pm Nigeria time.Coach Paul Aigbogun and his assistants have somewhat calibrated a new ensemble, leaving out half of the squad members from the Africa U20 Cup of Nations in Niger Republic in February, where the team earned the ticket to Poland, and infusing a number of exciting talent in midfield and attacking realms.While the choice for the number one shirt is between Detan Ogundare and Olawale Oremade (who was custodian in Niger), Valentine Ozornwafor and Igoh Ogbu are likely to keep their spots in central defence. Captain Ikouwem Utin would be at left back while Jamil Muhammad could be at right back.In the midfield, much attention will be on the England –based duo Nnamdi Ofoborh and Ayotomiwa Dele-Bashiru, as well as AC Perugia of Italy’s former junior international Kingsley Michael. In this sector also are home –based professionals Effiom Maxwell and Aniekeme Okon, who are rapid raiders on their day.Dele-Bashiru, of England champions Manchester City has already been tipped by world football –ruling body, FIFA, as one of the players from whom much is expected in Poland.At the fore, Nigeria has a cosmopolitan flavour with England –based Chinonso Emeka, Norway –based Jerome Adams, Czech Republic –based Tijani Muhammed, Sweden –based Henry Offia and home –based Success Makanjuola vying for available spots.Aigbogun told thenff.com yesterday that the group is aware of the pedigree of Nigeria at the FIFA U20 World Cup and cannot afford to under-perform.“We have a tough history to match. Silver medals on two occasions and bronze medals once, and a number of quarter final appearances. That’s why we must start very well, by taking the points against Qatar and then march on with confidence and self assurance.“We are flying the flag of nearly 200 million Nigerians, as well as that of the African continent. We have put a lot of work into building a squad that will make Nigeria and Africa proud.”Nigeria has a number of exciting moments at the FIFA U20 World Cup to her name.The old Soviet Union won the first edition of the FIFA U20 World Cup (then known as FIFA World Youth Championship) in Tunisia in 1977. Six years later, Tarila Okoronwanta’s first half goal condemned old Soviet Union to defeat in Monterrey, Mexico in Nigeria’s first –ever match at the competition.In 1985, Monday Odiaka scored after only 14 seconds against Canada in a group phase match, which remains a record. At the same tournament, reserve goalkeeper Christian Obi thwarted host nation Soviet Union in the penalty shoot-out of the third place match to hand the bronze medals to Nigeria.Four years later, Christopher Ohenhen’s bullet-like free kick that gave Nigeria a 2-1 win over host nation Saudi Arabia was the competition’s 500th goal. Few days later, midfielder Christopher Nwosu’s blistering run and shot in the last minute earned a 1-1 draw with old Czechoslovakia in the final group phase match and took Nigeria to the knock –out stage.In the quarter finals, the Flying Eagles came back from 0-4 down to defeat the same old Soviet Union after penalty shoot-out.In 2005, in The Netherlands, Chinedu Obasi’s television goal unsettled Argentina in the final in Utrecht, but two penalty kicks by Lionel Messi gave the South Americans victory.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Dodgers beat Seattle Mariners again in their final at-bat; celebration ensues

first_imgBut Turner took off for home plate on contact and was tagged out in a rundown between third base and home plate.Adrian Gonzalez then walked to load the bases, setting the stage for Kendrick, who belted the next pitch to right field on a line. Rollins scored easily from third base. Right fielder Nelson Cruz made a strong throw to the plate, but Crawford slid around catcher Mike Zunino’s tag, setting off a wild celebration as players poured out of the dugout. Alex Guerrero and Andre Ethier also hit home runs before an announced crowd of 43,115 at Dodger Stadium.Left-hander David Huff became the fifth pitcher to start a game for the Dodgers this year, not far from where he grew up in Huntington Beach, but a long way from the Cactus League fields of greater Phoenix where he was so efficient in spring training.Because the Dodgers had optioned some of their better pitching prospects to Triple-A to begin the season — Joe Wieland, Zach Lee and Mike Bolsinger — they could not be recalled until April 16 per MLB rules. So the choice was essentially between Huff and veterans Scott Baker and Freddy Garcia, neither of whom pitched an inning for the Dodgers in camp. Huff gave up four runs in four innings, including back-to-back solo home runs by Robinson Cano and Cruz in the first inning. He exited when his turn at-bat came around with the Dodgers trailing 4-1 in the fourth inning.Manager Don Mattingly chose Guerrero, whose bases-loaded single had lifted the Dodgers to a 10-inning victory Monday, to pinch hit for Huff. Guerrero belted the first pitch he saw from Hisashi Iwakuma over the left-center field fence for a two-run home run. It was Guerrero’s first pinch-hit home run in a major league game, and the first by any Dodger pinch-hitter since Scott Van Slyke last July.Their lead cut to 4-3, the Mariners jumped on reliever Juan Nicasio for a run in the fifth inning after Nicasio walked the first two batters he faced.Ethier got the run back in the sixth inning with a home run to right field that stayed fair by inches. It was his first home run since June 29, 2015. He only got the start because Yasiel Puig was dealing with an injured left hamstring and held out of the lineup as a precaution.The Dodgers had runners on first and second base after back-to-back singles by Crawford and Gonzalez to begin the seventh inning. Right-hander Yoervis Medina replaced left-hander Charlie Furbush on the mound, and he struck out Kendrick and induced an inning-ending double play groundout by Yasmani Grandal.Grandal, starting his fifth game at catcher, went 0 for 3 and is batting .176 to start the season. One walk-off win deserves another.Howie Kendrick’s single to right field in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday drove in two runs, lifting the Dodgers to a 6-5 victory over the Seattle Mariners. The Dodgers have won both games to begin the series in their final at-bat.PHOTOS: See images of Dodgers celebrationMariners closer Fernando Rodney allowed singles to Justin Turner and Jimmy Rollins to begin the ninth inning. Turner was at third base when the next batter, Carl Crawford, hit a ground ball to the hot corner. center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
