Ighalo not an odd signing, Ole affirms

first_img And Solskjaer hopes the 30-year-old can have the same instant impact he himself had when arriving from Molde in 1996. The Norwegian said: “Well, it didn’t take me too long… I didn’t have a training session to come on.

Starstruck Hendrick lives the dream

Starstruck Hendrick lives the dream

first_imgJeff Hendrick is still coming to terms with rubbing shoulders with Ireland’s biggest stars. The 21-year-old Derby midfielder has established himself firmly in Giovanni Trapattoni’s squad just a few months after his elevation from the Under-21s, and could be handed a World Cup qualifier debut against the Faroe Islands on Friday night. However, he is yet to fully comprehend just how he has gone from watching Robbie Keane and his team-mates on television to playing in the same team. “For the 2002 World Cup, I was only nine or 10 and I had my face painted watching him [Keane] scoring goals, and now to be involved in the squad with him is great,” Hendrick said. “I was watching in the pub – I wasn’t drinking, though! “Last October, I was with the Under-21s and I was watching them all playing games, and then when I was brought into the squad, it was unreal. It’s great. As a kid, it’s what you dream of, just being involved.” Hendrick’s rise has been little short of meteoric with Trapattoni having spotted something in him as he trawled for a new generation of Ireland players. He made his third appearance as a substitute in Sunday’s 4-0 friendly victory over Georgia, and having set up Wes Hoolahan for a goal on his debut against Poland in February, he did the same for Keane at the weekend. He said: “I’m happy, really, if I just don’t mess up on the pitch. I’m glad to set the lads up for a goal. If I am not scoring, I like to set someone else up.” Hendrick has stepped on to the international stage as if to the manner born, and has certainly not looked out of place in a green shirt. However, he modestly plays down his contribution to date. When it was suggested to him that he looked like he belonged on the pitch against the Georgians, he said: “I don’t know about that. I am just happy to get on the pitch, as I said, and try to get as many minutes as possible and learn as many things as I can to improve my own game.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Manchester City beat Southampton to go top, but Sergio Aguero limps off

Manchester City beat Southampton to go top, but Sergio Aguero limps off

first_img Willy Caballero, standing in for the injured Joe Hart, then failed to deal with a James Ward-Prowse free-kick but recovered to keep out Saido Mane’s follow-up effort. Another Ward-Prowse set-piece flew narrowly wide. The tempo increased and the tackles became tougher with Nicolas Otamendi going in strong on Mane and illegally on Long. Van Dijk and Bacary Sagna clashed heads while Fonte was injured in a heavy and questionable challenge on Aguero. Sterling fired over when presented with a great chance to make it 3-0 and Saints pulled one back early in the second half as Long powered in a header from a superb Mane cross. That gave Southampton even more encouragement and the probing of Dusan Tadic, a shrewd half-time introduction, continually troubled the hosts. Cabellero also looked nervy in goal but he clawed away an attempted Tadic chip and City escaped as Long’s follow-up shot struck the arm of a defender. Long had another effort saved by Caballero as Saints kept up the pressure. City suffered a further blow as leading striker Aguero limped off with an ankle injury but they will at least have been buoyed by the introduction of David Silva from the bench after nine games out. City weathered the storm and took the sting out of the game with a third goal after 69 minutes. Sterling made the initial run and Wilfried Bony was involved before De Bruyne, resisting the temptation to shoot, cleverly picked out an unmarked Kolarov on the far side. The Serbian drove home to ease City nerves. Bony should have had another as he shot horribly wide late on but City had done enough, even though they may have been left to count the cost. TWEET OF THE MATCH “HT 2-0 Sterling passes to Aguero None – Aguero passes to Sterling None – LOL…..” – Not sure what point Rodney Marsh is trying to make here… PLAYER RATINGS MANCHESTER CITY Willy Caballero: 7 (Out of 10) Bacary Sagna: 6 Martin Demichelis: 6 Nicolas Otamendi: 7 Aleksandar Kolarov: 7 Fernandinho: 7 Fabian Delph: 9 Yaya Toure: 7 Kevin De Bruyne: 8 Raheem Sterling: 6 Sergio Aguero: 5 Substitutes: Wilfried Bony: 5 Fernando: 6 David Silva: 5 SOUTHAMPTON Maarten Stekelenburg: 6 Maya Yoshida: 5 Jose Fonte: 7 Virgil van Dijk: 7 Ryan Bertrand: 6 Oriol Romeu: 6 Victor Wanyama: 7 James Ward-Prowse: 7 Steven Davis: 6 Saido Mane: 7 Shane Long: 7 Substitutes: Steven Caulker: 6 Dusan Tadic: 8 Juanmi: 6 STAR MAN Fabian Delph: Four months after he signed for City, Delph finally made his first start for the club. He fully justified his selection with an energetic and whole-hearted performance. He was strong in both defence and attack and his reading of the game was excellent. He was rewarded with a goal. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Aleksandar Kolarov & Kevin De Bruyne: City were certainly rocking for a spell at 2-1 but nerves were eased as De Bruyne and Kolarov combined for their third goal. The Belgian resisted the temptation to shoot in a crowded area and calmly looked before chipping a perfect ball to the wide-open Kolarov. The Serbian also did not panic, taking time to pick his spot as he drove home a low shot. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Despite the strong start, this was no walk in the park for City and, after a couple of unconvincing performances, Manuel Pellegrini will be relieved to have got the result. The tactics were sound enough but he must continue to curse injuries. City are simply not as tough at the back without Vincent Kompany and Caballero is not as commanding as Joe Hart. The loss of Aguero was another worry but at least Silva returned. Southampton performed admirably, particularly after falling 2-0 behind, but manager Ronald Koeman may wish he had played the impressive Dusan Tadic from the start. MOAN OF THE MATCH Roger East seems to be a referee that subscribes to the theory that few like a fussy official, which is commendable, but he probably took it too far. Some of the challenges in the game that went unpunished were overly aggressive. WHO’S UP NEXT? Manchester City v Hull (Capital One Cup, Tuesday December 1) Southampton v Aston Villa (Barclays Premier League, Saturday December 5) It was a bruising encounter and Saints, after standing up to City, may rue their slow start. City began with a determination to put an end to their recent poor sequence. Kolarov hit the bar from a free-kick in the opening minutes and Maarten Stekelenburg anxiously grabbed the ball as City players swarmed in. More pressure led to the opener after nine minutes as Raheem Sterling robbed Maya Yoshida and sprinted into the area to square for De Bruyne to tap in. The impressive Delph then took advantage of slack defending to feed Aguero but Stekelenburg rushed out to block the Argentinian. City appealed for a penalty when Steven Davis appeared to block a Fernandinho header on the line with his arm, but the sense of injustice did not last long as Delph struck from the resulting corner. The midfielder needed no invitation to shoot as the ball rolled into his path outside the area but he benefited from a big deflection off the luckless Virgil van Dijk as Stekelenburg was wrong-footed. That seemed to spark Saints into life and Van Dijk was unfortunate again as he struck the bar from 25 yards. Sergio Aguero limped off but Manchester City survived a Southampton fightback to get back to winning ways and the top of the table with a 3-1 win at the Etihad Stadium. Press Association Title favourites City raced ahead as they sought a first win in three Barclays Premier League games with early goals from Kevin De Bruyne and full debutant Fabian Delph in heavy Manchester rain. But Saints hit back through Shane Long and City worries increased as top striker Aguero appeared to suffer an ankle injury but Aleksandar Kolarov settled nerves with the hosts’ third. last_img read more

Patriots re-sign Nick Folk, adding to kicking competition

Patriots re-sign Nick Folk, adding to kicking competition

first_img WATCH US LIVE Written By The Patriots may not have settled on their replacement for kicker Stephen Gostkowski.New England re-signed veteran Nick Folk on Monday, giving rookie fifth-round draft pick Justin Rohrwasser some competition for the job as the team moves into what coach Bill Belichick said was a “big week” for players to begin showing progress during the truncated training camp. Teams must trim their rosters to a league-mandated 53 players by Sept. 5.“I think we’re in position, hopefully, to string some good days together and have a lot of little things start to fit together in the overall big picture,” Belichick said.Whether that includes the 35-year-old Folk, a veteran of three other NFL teams, remains to be seen. He finished last season as New England’s kicker after Gostkowski played just four games before going on injured reserve in October and having season-ending hip surgery.It started a merry-go-round at the position, with the Patriots using three different kickers over the rest of the season.But Folk brought steadiness to the job, connecting on 14 of 17 field goals and all 12 of his extra points in seven games. It included him missing a week to have an emergency appendectomy.Gostkowski was released in March, creating a full-time opening for the job for the first time since New England drafted him in 2006.After kicking on the Patriots’ first day of padded practices last week, Rohrwasser went three straight workouts without attempting a kick in the presence of reporters. On the days he didn’t kick he worked on conditioning, either running or at times riding an exercise bike on the sideline.Asked early last week about him not kicking during practices Belichick said Rohrwasser, like all rookies, was going through an acclimation process.“We’ll see,” Belichick said when asked about his confidence in Rohrwasser. “That’s a process that we’re working through, as well — the snapper, kicker, holder operation — and obviously, he can kick off, too. We’ll see how all that goes.”Asked again on Friday about Rohrwasser’s progress, Belichick remained vague.“Everybody’s making progress,” he said.Rohrwasser was back kicking on Monday, sharing attempts with Folk during situational scrimmage drills.Both had success, each going 5 for 6 for the day.Image credits: AP LIVE TV First Published: 25th August, 2020 07:02 IST COMMENTcenter_img Associated Press Television News Last Updated: 25th August, 2020 07:02 IST Patriots Re-sign Nick Folk, Adding To Kicking Competition New England re-signed veteran Nick Folk on Monday, giving rookie fifth-round draft pick Justin Rohrwasser some competition for the job as the team moves into what coach Bill Belichick said was a “big week” for players to begin showing progress during the truncated training camp.
