Neville: Bronze is the best player in the world

first_imgPhil Neville has heaped praise on to England right-back Lucy Bronze after her player-of-the-match display against Norway in the Women’s World Cup quarter-final.The Lionesses won the clash in Le Havre 3-0, with Bronze playing a huge part in all three goals.It was her dribble and cross in the third minute that fell so perfectly for Jill Scott to tap in the game’s opener, while later in the half it was Bronze’s ball to Nikita Parris that found the winger with time and space from which she centred the ball to the waiting Ellen White for a simple tap-in.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘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? But the full-back saved the best for last and in the 57th minute her pile driver from outside the area added England’s third, and final, goal on the night. Bronze is widely acknowledged as one of the top right-backs in the women’s game, but speaking after the match Neville said she has raised the bar even higher this tournament. “I think what you’ve seen tonight, you’ve seen that Lucy Bronze is the best player in the world, without a shadow of a doubt,” he told BBC Sport. “I’ve said it once, I’ll say it three times. There’s no player like her in the world, there’s no player that has her athleticism or her quality and I’m very lucky. I played full-back but never to that level that she plays at – she’s the best player in the world.” The quarter-final success means England will face the winners of France and the USWNT on Friday night, but the Lionesses boss has said he fancies his side’s chances against either team in the last four. “Well, you know what – we want to play them both,” Neville said. “We’re not bothered who we play. We’ll go to Lyon and the atmosphere and the occasion will be great. We’re having fun.” Lyon is, of course, where Bronze plays her club football. With the French side, the England star has won back-to-back Champions League titles and helped Lyon complete the treble in 2018/19. She arrived at Division 1 Feminine outfit in 2017, having previously spent three years at Manchester City. Bronze also has represented Liverpool, Everton and Sunderland.last_img read more

Zaha to remain at Palace after failing to seal summer exit

first_imgCrystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson expects Wilfried Zaha to return to the club after failing to seal a transfer away from Selhurst Park. The Ivory Coast international had been constantly linked with a move over the summer window. Everton saw a £70 million ($85m) plus players bid for the forward rejected, while  Arsenal were also interested in his services before signing Nicolas Pepe.  Editors’ Picks 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 Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Ultimately, however, no deal could be struck, and Zaha will line up for the Eagles in the upcoming Premier League season. And Hodgson expects his charge to overcome his disappointment and remain committed to his current club.”It’s been well documented that he’s wanted to leave but it has not worked out for him in that respect. We expect him to come back and do what he does,” the former England boss signalled to Sky Sports. Zaha is reportedly upset at Palace’s refusal to accept transfer overtures this summer, having filed a transfer request. But Hodgson pointed out that he would have to vent his frustrations with the club’s owners rather than himself.”His beef is with the owners and the chairman. They haven’t been able to work a deal out for him,” he said. Zaha, 26, moved from his native Ivory Coast to Croydon at the age of four and joined local side Palace at 12. He left south London in 2013 for an abortive spell with Manchester United but rejoined the Eagles less than two years later, making himself a favourite at Selhurst Park. In 2018-19 he hit 10 goals in 34 Premier League appearances to finish as the club’s second-top scorer behind Luka Milivojevic, as a strong finish to the season saw Palace seal a comfortable mid-table position. His club form has also seen him become a regular for Ivory Coast in recent seasons, scoring twice at this summer’s African Cup of Nations to help his nation to the quarter-finals, where they lost out on penalties to eventual champions Algeria.last_img read more

There cannot be 11 Virat Kohlis in the Indian team: Muttiah Muralitharan

first_imgThere cannot be 11 Virat Kohlis in the Indian team: Muttiah MuralitharanMuttiah Muralitharan feels that people need to be patient as one cannot have 11 match-winners in the Indian team and it is also important to try out various combinations going into the World Cup.advertisement Indo-Asian News Service New DelhiMarch 12, 2019UPDATED: March 12, 2019 12:11 IST Critics have questioned Virat Kohli’s captaincy skills in the absence of MS Dhoni (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSVirat Kohli’s captaincy skills have come under the scanner ahead of the ICC World CupKohli gets a lot of help from MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma during the ODIs and T20IsIndia failed to defend 358 in the 4th ODI vs Australia in Dhoni’s absenceWith Australia chasing down India’s total of 358 in the fourth ODI in Mohali and squaring the five-match series 2-2, pundits and fans have been quite critical of the performance of the Indian players.While some have questioned the bowlers’ inability to defend a mammoth total on a decently big ground like the PCA Stadium in Mohali, others have questioned Virat Kohli’s captaincy skills in the absence of MS Dhoni, known to guide the skipper on the field.Speaking to IANS, former Sri Lanka spinner Muttiah Muralitharan begged to differ with the criticism that has come India’s way after Australia won the fourth ODI on Sunday.He feels that people need to be patient as one cannot have 11 match-winners in the team and it is also important to try out various combinations going into the World Cup.”You have to be patient with the team. The Indian team has been doing really well and are trying to experiment with the World Cup around the corner. You will get failures on the road to success as there cannot be 11 Virat Kohlis in the team. Not everyone can be a match-winner,” he said.”You will win some games and you will also lose a few. Otherwise, every team must be filled with 11 Kohli-s or Sachin Tendulkar-s or Don Bradman-s. But that cannot happen,” Muralitharan added.Coming to India’s spin bowling department, the wizard believes that the spin arsenal is well-equipped with Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal at the fore.”I think they are doing a good job. Both are quality performers and the fact that they have done well in all conditions bears testimony to their talent. Also, why do you think someone of the calibre of R Ashwin is not being able to squeeze into the limited-overs team? It is because these two have done well. Just one bad game (in Mohali) can’t be enough to criticise them. We are not dealing with robots here,” he pointed out.advertisementWith the showpiece event round the corner, the former Sri Lanka World Cup-winner feels that the fans too have a role to play if India are to win the trophy in England in a couple of months.”The fans have to be patient. The Indian players have done well and you cannot put too much pressure on them. This is a sport and there will be winners and losers. It is important to keep the pressure off the players as they must be allowed to focus on the game and that will bring the desired results,” he signed off.Also Read | India can’t use dew factor as an excuse for Mohali ODI loss: Madan LalAlso Read | Dhoni half a captain of Indian team, Kohli visibly rough without him: Bishan BediAlso Read | Support pours in for Rishabh Pant after Mohali taunt over missed stumpingsFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Copa America: Neymar’s absence could be blessing in disguise for hosts Brazil

first_img Reuters Sao PauloJune 11, 2019UPDATED: June 11, 2019 13:14 IST Neymar limped off the pitch during Brazil’s 1st half win over Qatar (Reuters Photo)Brazil expect to win every tournament they play, especially at home, but they go into next week’s Copa America without their talisman Neymar and lacking some of the sparkle that has long been their stock in trade.They have not lost since Belgium dumped them out of the 2018 World Cup in the quarter-finals but their 10-game unbeaten run with the exception of last week’s 7-0 drubbing of 10-man Honduras – has come largely without the usual flair.Brazil’s preparations for the Copa have been overshadowed by Neymar firstly the rape allegations against the striker, which he has denied, and then the ankle injury that ruled him out the tournament last week.Tite’s squad is as good as any in the tournament but the coach is trying to manage a generational change and said that choosing his squad of 23 players was the “most difficult” task he had faced since taking over three years ago.Brazil have included only 14 of the squad that went to the World Cup in Russia a year ago, with Everton’s Richarlison, David Neres of Ajax Amsterdam and midfielders Artur of Barcelona and Luca Paqueta of AC Milan among the young recruits.Apart from home advantage, they are fortunate to be in one of the easier groups with Bolivia, Peru, and Venezuela.The big question will be how they cope without Neymar but his absence could be a blessing in disguise. With the Paris St-Germain forward gone, there will be less of a circus atmosphere around the squad and the focus will be firmly on the pitch.advertisementHis teammates will want to show they can do it without their undisputed leader and they may also take the opportunity to show their solidarity and try to win the trophy for Neymar.The win over Honduras in their last warm-up game, with Philippe Coutinho resurgent and six different players getting their names on the scoresheet, was an encouraging sign.Brazil have won the Copa America eight times but not since 2007 and that trophy drought compounded by a failure to win the World Cup since 2002 – is a long one by Brazilian standards.Fans expect a home triumph and, even though the president of the Brazilian Football Confederation last week said Tite’s job was safe no matter what happens, fans will not spare him unless Brazil win, or lose playing beautiful football.But the coach was his usual inscrutable self when asked what he hoped to achieve over the next three weeks.”We are playing in our own country, and expectations are high that we win,” he said. But the expectation corresponds to how we perform. Are we going to win? I don’t know. But I want us to do the best we can.”Also Read | Neymar wants controversial Santos-Barca transfer trial to be held in BarcelonaAlso Read | Portugal clinch UEFA Nations League title after 1-0 win over NetherlandsAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Ultimately, Mohammed Shami’s hat-trick and Jasprit Bumrah’s double wicket blow helped India record their 4th win of the 2019 Cricket World Cup.Virat Kohli top-scored with 67 as India posted a modest 224 for 8 off their 50 overs. However, Afghanistan gave India a real scare before Bumrah struck twice in the 29th over to peg them back.And then Mohammad Nabi played a heroic knock. With 16 needed off the final over, Nabi hit a boundary before Shami removed Nabi, Aftab Alam and Mujeeb-ur-Rahman off 3 successive balls to win it for India.Speaking at the post-match presentation ceremony, Virat Kohli said this was a memorable win.”This is right up there. You win the toss, and you decide to bat and then you see the wicket slow down. You think 260 or 270 would be a good total,” Kohli said. “At the half-way stage, we had our doubts in our minds, but we also had self-belief in the change rooms.”Virat Kohli said he realised the pitch was not the kind where batsmen could play cross-batted shots and felt horizontal shots cost Indian batsmen on the slow surface.”As soon as I went in, I understood the pace of the pitch. Cross-batted shots aren’t on, and a lot of horizontal bat shots cost us on this pitch.”You can’t take the game away from the opposition. You have to knock the ball around, and with three quality wrist-spinners, it was always difficult,” Kohli said.advertisementAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Mohammed Shami 2nd Indian to take World Cup hat-trickAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Mohammed Shami hat-trick seals thrilling win for India over AfghanistanFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
