Wolfsburg stun Real Madrid

first_imgWOLFSBURG, Germany (AP):Wolfsburg caused the biggest upset of this season’s Champions League with a 2-0 victory over record 10-time winner Real Madrid in the first leg of their quarter-final yesterday.Making only their second appearance in the competition and playing their first quarter-final, Wolfsburg outmuscled and outran the Spanish giants to give themselves a clear chance of advancing after next Tuesday’s second leg at the Bernabeu.”We are in a good position, we can always score a goal,” Wolfsburg’s coach Dieter Hecking said. “We wanted to unnerve them a little and we succeeded.”Ricardo Rodriguez converted a penalty in the 18th minute and Maximilian Arnold added the second in the 25th as the home side used counterattacks to devastating effect, dealing Madrid their first defeat in the competition this season. Wolfsburg have won all five home matches.Cristiano Ronaldo had a goal disallowed for offside in the second minute and the Madrid star had little chance of increasing his competition-high tally of 13 goals after that.”We didn’t get into the game well,” Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. “But we still have 90 minutes at home, we have to stay calm.”In yesterday’s other match, Manchester City are in a strong position to reach the Champions League semi-finals for the first time after Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho’s scrappy goal earned a valuable 2-2 draw away to Paris Saint-Germain in an error-strewn quarter-final first leg.PSG took the lead when midfielder Adrien Rabiot tapped home in the 59th after goalkeeper Joe Hart saved Edison Cavani’s glancing header from Angel Di Maria’s corner.City struck against the run of play in the 38th through Belgium winger Kevin De Bruyne, but a huge mistake from midfielder Fernando gifted PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic an equaliser three minutes later.last_img read more

Bangladesh get the better of England

first_imgDHAKA, Bangladesh (AP):Captain Mashrafe Mortaza inspired Bangladesh to a 34-run victory against England in the second one-day international yesterday.Mortaza hit a 29-ball 44 as Bangladesh accelerated to 238-8 in testing conditions and then claimed 4-29 to bowl out England for 204 in 44.4 overs.The three-match series is level at 1-1.Mahmudullah set the platform for Mashrafe with a superb 75.Jos Buttler scored a run-a-ball 57 for England, while Jonny Bairstow made 35. Adil Rashid (33 not out) refused to give up, adding two significant partnerships after his team was reduced to 132-8.Bangladesh held its nerve as Mortaza fittingly sealed the deal with the wicket of last man Jake Ball.Fast-bowler Taskin Ahmed took 3-47.England found itself vulnerable on a pitch that was slower than the one used in the first match.Mortaza admirably moved the ball both ways to spark the top-order collapse. He made the initial breakthrough with the wicket of James Vince (5).Left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan, who opened the bowling, dismissed Ben Duckett through the gate for a duck. Mortaza then struck twice, dismissing Jason Roy (13) and Ben Stokes (0).England was reduced to 26-4, but Buttler and Bairstow combined for a 79-run partnership. It came to an end after Bairstow’s expansive drive against Ahmed cost his wicket.But the biggest blow for England came when Ahmed won a video review to remove Buttler, who tried to flick a length ball. Buttler appeared angered by something that had been said to him and was slow to leave the pitch.At 132-8, victory looked unlikely despite more than 20 overs still to be bowled. Rashid gave England fresh hope, adding 27 with David Willey (9) before sharing 45 runs off 37 balls with Jake Ball (28 off 22).Mortaza broke the resistance to help his side stay alive in the series.Earlier, Mahmudullah held together the innings after England captain Buttler opted to bowl first.Mortaza’s late surge helped give the Bangladesh bowlers something to defend.Mortaza added 69 runs off eight overs with Nasir Hossain after Bangladesh found itself on 169-7.SHORT BALLSFast-bowler Chris Woakes had used short balls to good effect to remove the two openers -Tamim Iqbal (14) and Imrul Kayes (11).Ball dismissed Sabbir Rahman (3) to leave Bangladesh 39-3 before Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim combined for a 50-run partnership.Rahim played an injudicious pull off Ball to throw away his wicket, leaving Mahmudullah to dig in deep.Mahmudullah hit six fours in his 88-ball knock before giving away his wicket while trying to paddle-sweep against leg-spinner Rashid.Mortaza smashed a six on only the second ball he faced. He hit two fours and three sixes before being run out on the penultimate ball.Mosaddek Hossain contributed 29, while Nasir Hossain was 27 not out.Fast bowlers Woakes and Ball, and leg-spinner Rashid, claimed two wickets apiece.ScoreboardBangladesh InningsTamim Iqbal c Ali Woakes 14Imrul Kayes c Willey b Woakes 11Sabbir Rahman b Ball 3Mahmudullah lbw b Rashid 75Mushfiqur Rahim c Ali b Ball 21Shakib Al Hasan c Buttler b Stokes 3Mosaddek Hossain c Ali b Rashid 29Nasir Hossain not out 27Mashrafe Mortaza run out 44Shafiul Islam not out 0Extras: (4lb, 6w,1nb) 11TOTAL: (For 8 wickets) 238Overs: 50Fall of wickets: 1-25, 2-26, 3-39, 4-89, 5-113, 6-161, 7-169, 8-238.Bowling: Chris Woakes 9-0-40-2, David Willey 8-1-36-0 (3w), Adil Rashid 10-0-53-2 (2w), Jake Ball 8-0-44-2 (1w), Ben Stokes 6-1-22-1 (1nb) , Moeen Ali 9-0-39-0.England InningsJason Roy lbw b Mortaza 13James Vince c M Hossai b Mortaza 5Ben Duckett b Al Hasan 0Jonny Bairstow c Rahim b Ahmed 35Ben Stokes b Mortaza 0Jos Buttler lbw b Ahmed 57Moeen Ali c Al Hasan b N Hossain 4Chris Woakes c Rahim b Ahmed 7Adil Rashid not out 33David Willey lbw b M Hossain 9Jake Ball c N Hossain b Mortaza 28Extras: (7lb, 6w) 13TOTAL: (all out) 204Overs: 44.4Fall of wickets: 1-12, 2-14, 3-24, 4-26, 5-105, 6-120, 7-123, 8-130, 9-159, 10-204.Bowling: Shakib Al Hasan 9-0-50-1 (1w), Mashrafe Mortaza 8.4-0-29-4 (1w), Shafiul Islam 8-0-37-0 (1w), Taskin Ahmed 8-0-47-3 (3w), Nasir Hossain 10-1-29-1, Mosaddek Hossain 1-0-5-1.Toss: won by England.last_img read more

Do or die showdown – Jamaica take on Suriname at National Stadium

first_imgThe last time Jamaica met Suriname in a Caribbean Cup football encounter, 20 years ago in Trinidad and Tobago, the South Americans surprised their Jamaican 3-1. Now, the present group of Reggae Boyz have an opportunity to avenge that defeat when they face Suriname in their must-win Caribbean Cup qualifier this evening at the National Stadium starting at 6 o’clock. A win for either team will earn each a place in the 2017 Caribbean Cup semi-finals next June, as well as a spot in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Both teams beat eliminated Guyana, the other team in Group 1. Jamaica, the defending champions, will be missing captain Je-vaughn Watson and full-back Kemar Lawrence through injury, but although Coach Theodore Whitmore expects a very difficult match, he is just as optimistic that they will get the better of their opponents and move on to the regional football finals and secure their place in the CONCACAF showpiece, the Gold Cup. “We know Suriname are a very hard-running team, and when any of these Caribbean teams play against Jamaica, they are always up for it. We know the situation and we know it’s going to be tough, but we are looking forward to a good game, a good result and a positive performance,” he told the Sunday Gleaner. “We are the champions of the Caribbean and we are looking forward to being a part of the Caribbean Cup and the Gold Cup as well, so we have to do what we have to do … and we don’t want to leave anything to chance,” Whitmore, who was a member of the team that lost to Suriname in 1996, added. Although the team will miss the experience of Watson in midfield and Lawrence’s quality at left-back, Whitmore thinks this group is more than capable of making up for their absence. “With the absence of these players, we are a bit unbalanced, but it’s workable and we are looking for a positive result. It’s going to be tough, but we will maintain a level head and look for a positive result. It’s the same players from the Guyana game and they are hungry, motivated and focused, so we will be giving a 110 percent performance,” he said. Key players for Jamaica will be forward Owayne Gordon, defenders Dicoy Williams, Shaun Francis and Alvas Powell goalkeeper and captain Andre Blake and forward Dino Williams. Suriname’s coach, Roberto Godeken, will be relying on some key players to give him victory against the Reggae Boyz. Midfielders Roxey Fer and Mitchell Kisoor are expected to provide much of the danger upfront for the visitors, and along with strikers Dimitrie Apai and Stefano Rijssel. Jamaica defeated Guyana 4-2 in extra-time in their Group I match, while Suriname stopped the said opponent 3-2 for both teams to come into today’s game on three points. If the game is tied at the end of 90 minutes, extra-time will be required. If the extra period fails to separate the teams, penalties will be used to decide the winner.last_img read more

Richards looks ahead to strong season

first_imgOlympic shot put finalist O’Dayne Richards is optimistic about his 2017 prospects and is looking forward to competition with the likes of Olympic champion Ryan Crouser and World Champion Joe Kovacs. Speaking in Mandeville before he won the shot put event at the Manchester High School/Charlie Fuller Memorial, Richards says he is working to improve this year. He also hopes more fans will watch the shot as time goes by.He was at the Memorial to test his fitness a season after knee surgery and a slow recovery threatened his Olympic hopes. He is thankful to be headed in the right direction.”I think there is still a bit of room to catch up,” the MVP Track Club throwing ace said. “It’s very close to what it was the year before.”In that year, he cemented years of steady advances with the Pan-Am Games gold medal and bronze at the World Championships in Beijing, China. Both were achieved with the national record distance of 21.69 metres. Now he just wants to improve.”That has always been the target and I guess the target really hasn’t changed; to continue to improve,” Richards noted.With a nod to the size of giant rivals like the 6 foot 7 inch Crouser, the 5′ 11″ Jamaican cracked a little smile and said, “No I can’t get taller so everything that I have control over, speed, technique, mental strength, you know, everything, whatever it takes for me to try and improve, that is what I’m working on.”The American pair of Crouser and Kovacs and New Zealander Tom Walsh went beyond 22m in 2016 and the St George’s College and University of Technology graduate thinks others will soon do it as well.”I expected to be amongst four or five guys hitting 22m within the same year,” he shared calmly, while waiting for his event to start at the Memorial. “So far, we haven’t seen it yet and I still believe that one year we will see four or five guys hitting 22m within the same year.”Richards has clear ideas as to how to get more Jamaicans to take an interest in his event. He recommends the staging of street shot put meets in places like Half Way Tree and Crossroads.”Some people stay far away in the stadium,” he described. “So you don’t really know how heavy the shot put lands on the ground.””You don’t really see it coming at you at 13 metres per second,” Richards said with a statistic on the high speed at with his implement travels.”So when people come to get closer to the event, even get involved, maybe roll back a shot and see how heavy it is and I guess people will start to see and maybe enjoy it.”Richards won the shot put at the Memorial with a distance of 20.11m.last_img read more

Phoenix open to more trades after failed PBA Govs’ Cup bid

PBA IMAGESANTIPOLO — Phoenix has had a busy season after being involved in several trade deals.The Fuel Masters, however, aren’t done yet in revamping their roster especially after a failed campaign in the 2017 Governors’ Cup.ADVERTISEMENT The team also took part in a three-team deal that sent TNT’s Ranidel de Ocampo to Meralco on Monday where the Fuel Masters let go of rookie Norbert Torres and ended up with the Bolts’ first round pick in this year’s draft and the KaTropa’s second round pick in 2019.Phoenix had a promising start this conference, winning its first two games. But the Fuel Masters’ campaign took a turn for the worse after their explosive import Eugene Phelps suffered a foot injury last month and star swingman Matthew Wright missed five games due to national team commitments.“Honestly, we didn’t know that Eugene’s injury was a stress fracture on his left foot. He was playing with pain and he wasn’t the same,” Vanguardia recalled. “We had to make a change, and Brandon (Brown) wasn’t in shape yet. We lost that long preparation we had before the conference.”“We also didn’t get lucky with the schedule. Our national team player missed the most out of our games. He missed five games this conference. It was tough because we saw how he can deliver when he’s with us for long stretches,” Vanguardia said of Wright.Wright unleashed 36 points while Brandon Brown added 33 points and 20 rebounds, but despite their big production, Phoenix still went on to drop its eighth straight game.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Break new ground “It’s really painful, disappointing conference for us.
