World Cup Hopes Still Strong: England Captain Eoin Morgan

first_imgLondon: England captain Eoin Morgan has insisted that his team’s World Cup hopes are not in jeopardy and they still have a “strong” chance of making it to the semi-finals.England, who came into the World Cup as hot favourites, on Tuesday suffered a 64-run defeat at the hands of arch-rivals Australia at the Lord’s.This was the second consecutive loss for the Three Lions after their shocking defeat against Sri Lanka on June 21.Speaking at the post-match press conference, Morgan admitted his side’s confidence had taken a knock after their famed batting line-up failed to chase down 286 against the defending champions.“I think it (confidence) will take a little bit of a hit,” cricket.com. au quoted Morgan as saying.“But I certainly don’t think it has knocked anybody in the changing room. Normally when we lose games of cricket, like I mentioned yesterday, we go back to what we do well. We’ll still strive to do that for Sunday’s game,” he added.The pre-tournament favourites have lost three games in the seven matches they have played so far in the tournament and they must now beat India or New Zealand to secure a spot in the last four. Ideally, they would want to win both the games as that will surely seal a spot for them in the semi-finals. Asked about team’s chances in the World Cup, Morgan said: “They are strong.”“The chances are in our hands. Everything is within our control. We just need to produce a performance worthy of winning either one or the next two games.”Morgan admitted to struggling with the basics against left-arm tearaways Jason Behrendorff and Mitchell Starc, who took nine wickets between them on Tuesday.“I think both this game and the last, we struggled with the basics of what we call our batting mantra. You know, strong intent, building partnerships, and doing it in our own way, and we haven’t done those for long enough periods of the game in order to either chase down 230 or chase down 280, and that’s disappointing,” the England skipper said.England now face third-placed India in a crunch clash at Edgbaston on Sunday before they take on the Black Caps in Durham on July 3.

Klopp demands Liverpool produce unique display against Napoli

first_imgLiverpool, United Kingdom | AFP | Jurgen Klopp has called on Liverpool to produce “something special” when they face Napoli in a do-or-die Champions League showdown on Tuesday.Klopp’s side must beat Napoli at Anfield to stand any chance of progressing from their group into the knockout stages.A 1-0 victory or any two-goal win will see the Reds through.Liverpool have a long history of success on big European nights on their own ground, dating all the way back to the memorable European Cup quarter-final win over Saint-Etienne in 1977 that kick-started their continental reign.That gives Klopp hope as he prepares to face a major test against Napoli, who are second in Serie A and unbeaten in Champions League Group C, having defeated Liverpool 1-0 when they met in Italy in October.The Italian side have continued to look strong despite losing manager Maurizio Sarri to Chelsea in July, with Carlo Ancelotti taking over and Klopp knows Liverpool will have to produce one of their most dominant displays to advance.“We really need to make sure we are ready for Napoli. It’s difficult to come in after a successful coach such as Sarri and make changes but they are so good,” Klopp told reporters on Monday.“We know the result we need, and it’s difficult because Napoli are dangerous on the counter attack and good defending.“They are a typical Italian team. But if something special is possible, then it’s here, and we will try that.”Liverpool go into Tuesday’s match in good spirits, having gone top of the Premier League on Saturday when they won 4-0 at Bournemouth and previous leaders Manchester City lost 2-0 at Chelsea.Klopp, however, is certain that his players will not get carried away, either in the Premier League or in Europe, given the defeats they have suffered in their group this season.– Confident –“We will not get carried away. We know how difficult it is,” he said. “We are not the most experienced side but we know our way and which way we will go all the time.“The league is not important at the moment because tomorrow we play Napoli. We were confident before the away games in Napoli and Belgrade, and that didn’t help.”Klopp, meanwhile, has commended former Liverpool player Raheem Sterling for the way he dealt with alleged racist abuse directed towards him while playing for Manchester City at Chelsea on Saturday.Chelsea and the Metropolitan Police are investigating the allegations after a video was posted on social media that showed the England winger being shouted at by Chelsea fans as he collected the ball behind the goal.On Sunday, Sterling published a post on Instagram saying that British newspapers are helping to “fuel racism” because of the way they portray young black footballers.He also wrote in the post that he “had to laugh” when he heard the alleged racist remarks during the game because he expects “no better”.“I watched the game and I think I saw the situation when he went for the corner and I saw a few guys shouting,” he said.“I didn’t hear, I’m not sure if it was possible to hear what they shouted, but I already thought his reaction was just brilliant.“You saw his face. He gave the right response, not to react for these people.“They don’t deserve any reaction, they don’t deserve any respect.“I am obviously not surprised that things like this still happen but I like the fact that we put the finger on it and say: ‘You cannot say what you want, it is not possible.’”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Calvin sinks Leafs in OT to help Hawks even up Murdoch semi final

first_imgThe Nelson Leafs had the Beaver Valley Nitehawks right where they wanted them.Leading 2-1 in the best-of-seven Murdoch Division Semi Final, the Green and White could take a stranglehold on the series with a home-ice win Tuesday night.However, Dallas Calvin put the Hawks back on even terms scoring a power play marker three minutes into overtime to give Beaver Valley a 4-3 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League playoff victory at the NDCC Arena.The series, tied 2-2, now shifts to Fruitvale for Game five with Game six back in Nelson Friday.“Ya, this feels really good,” said Calvin minutes after cruising into the slot and snapping a shot past a screened Brett Soles in the Leaf nets.“(Nelson) is a very good team but tonight we did a lot of little things right and buried our chances.”The small, but important, parts to the Hawks game allowed the visitors grab a 2-0 lead two minutes into the second period.Dan Holland scored in the last two minutes of the first frame before Derek Lashuk gave the Hawks a two-goal advantage early in the second.The lead stood until Nelson got some life when Aaron Dunlap scored a shorthanded marker midway through the frame.Less than two minutes later, Carsen Willans scored his first of the post season on a mad scramble in front of Beaver Valley goalie Jarrod Schamerhorn.It was the longest wait between goal and celebration on record as referee Mike Paige needed what seemed like an eternity to consult with his linesmen before confirming the Nelson goal.But the Hawks roared back before the period ended to grab another intermission lead.Ryan Edwards did all the work behind the Nelson net, centering a pass that Keanan Patershuk buried past Soles. “They came hard . . . they were pretty desperate for the win,” said Leaf defenceman Cam Weir.“I thought we weathered the storm pretty well and came back and pushed back quite hard.”Beaver Valley tried to lock down the Leafs in the third. But Bryce Nielsen jammed the puck pasts Schamerhorn with eight minutes remaining in the period to tie the game at 3-3.Leaf captain did most of the work, driving past Hawks defenceman Walker Sidoni and forcing Schamerhorn to cough up a rebound Nielsen pushed into the net.Nelson had a great opportunity early in overtime when Edwards was called for delay of game after shooting the puck over the glass.However, the Hawks were able to kill off that penalty before being awarded their own man advantage when Edwards was hauled down at the Nelson blueline by the Leafs’ Kyler Wilkinson nullifying a potential Beaver Valley breakaway.“We can’t really think that way . . . we’ve got to have a short memory,” Weir said when asked if the Leafs let one slip away in Game four.“We’ve got to forget about it and move on and get ready for (Game five) Thursday.”Tuesday’s win means the series now is a best-of-three affair with the Hawks regaining home ice advantage.“Playing at home is great . . . our fans are great and we’re happy to be playing at home,” Calvin said.ICE CHIPS: Nelson out shot the Hawks for the second straight night, 31-22. . . . After being shutout Monday in Game three, the Hawks got the power play working, going two for seven in the game. Nelson was scoreless in five attempts. . . .Nelson played without the services of forwards Dustin Reimer and Greg Nickel due to injury. . . .If a Game seven is necessary it will be played Saturday in Fruitvale. . . . Before the game, the Leafs recognized the Nelson Atoms winning the West Kootenay Championship over the weekend. . . .Game attendance topped the 600 mark.last_img read more

Sport of bowling on its way out in Nelson

first_imgIt’s a sport that once thrived in the Heritage City.But recent news that the Savoy Lanes is closing operations appears to be the end of the line of bowling in Nelson.“The Bowling Alley has not been able to make their financial commitments due to low usage,” said Kootenay Christian Fellowship Pastor Jim Reimer.“Cleerly Hand Made the present operators of the bowling alley, are having to terminate their lease with us as of April 30.”Reimer is Pastor of the Kootenay Christian Fellowship, owners of the building that houses Savoy Lanes.The church, which also operates Our Daily Bread and SHARE Nelson, purchased the building in 2012. The current location of the bowling alley at 500 Kootenay Street was built in the 1980s when the former facility on 500 Block of Vernon Street was gutted by fire.The fire ripped through the lanes in 1982.The new Savoy Lanes picked up where the old facility left off, but interest has dwindled over the past decade.In June of 2013, when it appeared the bowling alley would be lost, Nelson Sports Council stepped up to the plate to save the sport with the purchase of the Savoy Bowling Lanes.However, the Nelson Sports Council ended its ownership of the Savoy Lanes April 1, 2015 citing lack of interest as the reason for the failed venture.Cleerly Hand Made picked up the business from the Nelson Sports Council.However, that venture now appears to have ended.“We have tried to accommodate and support three separate operators of the Bowling alley since we purchased this building,” Reimer explained.“Since we own the equipment, we are offering it to anyone free of charge to anyone who would like to start up a new bowling alley in a different location.”last_img read more

Latest: Chelsea 1 Aston Villa 0 – Oscar puts Blues in front

first_imgOscar netted his second goal in as many games to give Chelsea an early lead at Stamford Bridge.The diminutive Brazilian, who replaced the injured Ramires in the only change from last weekend’s draw at Manchester City, struck the winner against Bolton in Wednesday’s Capital One Cup clash and slotted home in the seventh minute against Villa.Willian was the architect, forcing a save from Villa keeper Brad Guzan before squaring it for his unmarked compatriot.It was the first chance of a fairly low-key opening, which has seen Chelsea probe while Villa look to hit on the counter-attack.Willian also went close as he outpaced Nathan Baker but the defender did enough to deflect the lively midfielder’s effort into the side netting.Villa’s best chance of the first 20 minutes came when Chelsea failed to clear a corner and Aly Cissokho hooked just wide of the post.Diego Costa, starting despite ongoing concerns over a niggling injury, has largely been a peripheral figure, with most of Chelsea’s attacks going through the two Brazilians, Eden Hazard and the supporting Branislav Ivanovic. Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Costa.Subs: Cech, Zouma, Filipe Luis, Mikel, Schurrle, Remy, Drogba.

It hasn’t worked exactly. But that’s all right, too, because I am so lucky to do what I’m doing.”TOURNAMENT UPDATEThere will be 32 teams playing in China this summer, and 29 of those spots have now been claimed.Serbia, the world’s No. 4-ranked team, finally clinched its spot out of the European qualifiers with a 97-76 victory over Israel on Sunday in the last qualifying game for both teams. Russia also clinched its spot Sunday, needing a late 33-11 run to rally past Finland 91-76.Other qualifiers Sunday included Ivory Coast, Japan, Jordan, Iran and the Philippines. Brazil, Senegal, Italy and Poland also clinched their spots in the field over the weekend. Ivory Coast won three games in three days to get in, and needed to beat Mali on Sunday in that last game by more than 13 points to qualify — getting the job done with a 69-49 win to grab the fifth and final spot allocated to the African qualifying region.China got in automatically as the host. Tunisia, Nigeria, Greece, Germany, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Australia, France, Angola, New Zealand, South Korea, Spain, Turkey, Venezuela, Canada, Argentina and the U.S. qualified before this final window as well.World No. 7 Slovenia and No. 9 Croatia were the top-ranked teams that failed to qualify.WHO’S LEFTThe last three World Cup berths will be won on Monday.Europe gets 12 teams, and the last of those berths will go to Montenegro or Latvia. Those nations play Monday, and Latvia must win by nine points or more to earn a trip to the World Cup. Otherwise, Montenegro goes. LATEST STORIES Van Gundy — the coach for all six two-game qualifying cycles for the U.S. and who led the Americans into the field for this summer’s tournament in China without navigating any serious trouble — will send his team out to face Argentina at Greensboro, North Carolina, on Monday night in the final qualifying game for both nations.Both teams have already clinched spots in the World Cup. All that’s at stake in the finale is first place in Group E; both teams go into Monday night with 9-2 records. Van Gundy has gotten the Americans to that point despite being handed a very different roster for each qualifying cycle, and he has used more than 50 different players with “USA” across their chests so far in the tournament.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption charges“Jeff Van Gundy was a perfect selection for us as it relates to put together a squad, or squads,” USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo said. “I had the privilege of watching a few practices to see how he put all those things together, all those pieces together and how quickly he got people to buy in. I just think he’s done an outstanding job. We could not have done any better.”Van Gundy hasn’t coached in the NBA since the 2006-07 season. He’s been a television analyst for ESPN and ABC since, and is generally considered one of the best commentators in the game. He’s part of the lead crew on ESPN, often working with Mike Breen, Mark Jackson and Doris Burke. ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting “I don’t love TV. I love the people I work with,” Van Gundy said last week, as the U.S. qualifying team was breaking training camp at the University of Miami. “I love coaching. I like TV. Whenever you try an alternative job that you’re not trained in and you don’t really have an expertise in, it’s all about who you work with.”Burke has been with Van Gundy for some of his practices, and she marvels at how well he teaches and how fast he processes the game.“He is able to see all 10 guys on the floor through an entire possession,” Burke said. “He’s one of the best I’ve ever seen. I just love the man.”It’s likely that Van Gundy will remain involved with the U.S. team for the World Cup in some capacity. The team that will play in China starting on Aug. 31 will be coached by San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich, who’ll have a roster stocked with NBA superstars — while Van Gundy went through qualifying with G League players. Popovich, countless times over the last several months, has lauded the job Van Gundy has done.Van Gundy said coaching the U.S. in qualifying didn’t necessarily stoke his desire to keep coaching.

ISL: NorthEast United FC beat FC Pune City to jump to second spot

first_imgNorthEast United FC got the better of FC Pune City 2-0 in an Indian Super League (ISL) clash at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune on Tuesday.Bartholomew Ogbeche and Juan Mascia scored a goal each to seal three points for the visitors, who have continued their unbeaten run away from home and climbed to the second spot on the league table with 17 points from eight matches.Meanwhile, Ogbeche has equalled Ferran Corominas’ tally of eight goals in the race for the Golden Boot.FC Pune City, who started the match with four foreign players, created plenty of chances to score but failed to beat NorthEast United custodian Pawan Kumar.NorthEast United broke the deadlock in the 23rd minute when Federico Gallego’s flat corner-kick reached Ogbeche at the far post. The striker chested it down and placed the ball into the net to score his eighth goal of the season.Pune soon stepped up their efforts and were almost rewarded in the 41st minute when Marcelinho’s free-kick from the left found Matt Mills inside the box. The defender rose highest and was denied by Pawan, who pulled off an outstanding save.Pune started the second half just like they ended the first. They pressed for an equaliser but a resilient NorthEast United backline stood firm to keep the scores level.Juan Mascia dribbled into the box from the right and was brought down by Sahil Panwar in the 90th minute. The forward stepped up and converted from 12 yards to seal the win for NorthEast United.advertisementlast_img read more
