Poch not surprised that Roy Keane thinks Man United should sign Harry Kane

Of course I respect him and admired him when he was a player.”He was the kind of player who you want beside you, or as a centre-back like me you want him in front of you.”Whenever I listen to him he is very clinical in his comments.”Of course he loves good players and Harry Kane is a fantastic player. We more than agree Harry Kane deserves everything.”United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also commented on Keane’s suggestion before their 1-0 win over Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League last night.Solskjaer hailed Kane as ‘a fantastic goalscorer’, but said his focus was still on the attackers he currently has at his disposal.The Norwegian said: “Roy’s quite straightforward, isn’t he?”For us, it’s working hard.

Ireland beats New Zealand at rugby for first time in 111 years

first_imgNew Zealand rallied from 30-8 down after 47 minutes to close within four points at 33-29 when center Robbie Henshaw broke their line for Ireland’s fifth and match-winning try in the 76th minute.Three years ago in Dublin, the All Blacks broke Irish hearts when they rallied from 19-0 down – the biggest comeback in their history – to deny Ireland an historic win with an injury-time try and conversion.They seemed on the verge of repeating that at Soldier Field, where they closed within four points with 16 minutes remaining, but Ireland remained resolute to write their names into rugby history.In doing so, they also ended the All Blacks’ record run of 18 straight test wins, and set up a potentially thrilling rematch in Dublin in two weeks.Ireland played with remarkable skill and passion to stun the All Blacks with three first-half tries which gave them a 25-8 lead at halftime. Their fourth try to winger Simon Zebo made the lead 30-8, and the first time Ireland had notched 30 against New Zealand.With little more than half an hour remaining, an historic Irish victory seemed assured.But the All Blacks, who had barely been able to get their hands on the ball, mounted a determined comeback when they ensured more secure possession.With tries to replacement scrumhalf TJ Perenara, fullback Ben Smith and debutant lock Scott Barrett, they sawed into Ireland’s lead and moved within a try’s breadth of another great comeback victory.It seemed at that point the Irish were spent. Their robust defense was cracking, and New Zealand gained the momentum it needed to uphold an unbeaten run stretching back to 1905.But with a piece of brilliance, the Irish broke out of their own half and, kicking ahead, forced an error from All Blacks flanker Ardie Savea, who was caught behind his own tryline. From the ensuing five-meter scrum, No. 8 Jamie Heaslip detached, and passed to Henshaw, who ran straight and hard past three defenders to score.Ireland fans who overwhelmingly outnumbered New Zealanders among the 64,000-strong crowd began a delirious celebration. In the hometown of the Chicago Cubs, who ended their 108-year losing streak by winning baseball’s World Series this week, they went one better and stopped a 111-year run of outs.And they left New Zealand with no excuses. They outmuscled and generally outplayed the world champion All Blacks. New Zealand’s discipline was fractured, and through handling errors and tactical mistakes they failed to keep Ireland under any kind of pressure.Their rally, when it came, was determined, but it was too late, and it was again errors near the end, especially a pass from flanker Liam Squire which failed to find winger Julian Savea, which stalled their revival.“It was a bridge too far,” All Blacks captain Kieran Read said. “It was the first half start from us that really let us down. You can’t give a quality side like Ireland the lead we gave them tonight.”New Zealand scored the first try when center George Moala pounced on a ball knocked back over the Ireland tryline.But a try to flanker Jordi Murphy from a superbly mounted rolling maul in the 10th minute gave Ireland back the lead, and they didn’t concede it for the remainder of the match. Murphy and fellow back-rower CJ Stander, who scored in the 17th, took advantage of a 10-minute spell when New Zealand was reduced to 14 men by the sin-binning of prop Joe Moody.Murphy was forced from the field with a serious injury in the 26th, forcing a delay in play which made the match one of the longest in rugby union history. New Zealand also lost center Ryan Crotty in the same passage of play to what seemed a serious hamstring injury.Ireland put the All Blacks under almost intolerable pressure when scrumhalf Conor Murray, one of its best players, broke the fringe defense to score a superb solo try before halftime.Zebo exposed the All Blacks’ defense on the blindside in the 49th, and gave Ireland a lead which seemed insurmountable.But the lead began to creak under New Zealand pressure, as first Perenara then Smith scored. When Barrett, brother of flyhalf Beauden, scored in the 64th, a stunning turnaround seemed possible, even likely.But Ireland resisted and, continuing to play with enterprise, fashioned Henshaw’s try and immortality.last_img read more

Defiant Jones confident of upturn in England fortunes

first_imgThe RFU gave head coach Jones their backing after an ill-disciplined England squandered a 12-0 lead to lose the second Test – and the series – 23-12 against South Africa in Bloemfontein on Saturday.Jones has come in for criticism after three consecutive Six Nations defeats were followed by two against the Springboks, also losing to the Barbarians before embarking for their tour.The defiant Australian is confident the tide will turn with the World Cup to come in Japan next year.”I don’t need any dialogue with the RFU,” Jones told Sky Sports News. “All I need to do is my job and I do my job as well as I can every day.”I love the team. I love coaching the team. I’m excited about where we’re going to go.”I realise this is a tough time and that our fans and supporters will be disappointed but all I can assure you is we’re doing everything we can, every minute of the day, to turn this team around.”Jones said England’s slump is nothing new to him and he expected it after such a dream start to his tenure.He added: “I’ve been in many of these [situations] and I knew it was always going to come for England.”You’re always going to have a difficult run. Every team I’ve been in that’s been successful, we’ve had a difficult run like this.”Sometimes you need these periods to learn from, to cement those errors as things you don’t want to do again. We’re getting some hard lessons at the moment.”last_img read more

OFC appoints leading NZ solicitor as Olympic row rumbles on

first_imgChen is one of New Zealand’s top constitutional and administrative law experts, and managing partner of Chen Palmer Public and Employment Law Specialists.The OFC appears to be standing by the disqualification of New Zealand, whose team were thrown out of the competition following a protest made by semi-final opponents Vanuatu over the eligibility of South African-born Deklan Wynne was upheld at a disciplinary hearing on Sunday (July 12).Vanuatu went on to play Fiji in the final later that same day, losing 4-3 on penalties at the Sir Hubert Murray Stadium.New Zealand Football (NZF) insisted they were not aware of the OFC hearing, claiming they had been told the matter would be referred to FIFA.The national governing body confirmed on Monday (July 13) it plans to formally lodge an appeal over the OFC’s Disciplinary Committee’s ruling, with the deadline to do so being July 27. According to NZF chief executive Andy Martin, the appeal will be on two fronts, putting forward a case that the Pacific Games Council (PGC) was running the tournament, not the OFC, and that all players were cleared to play with the PGC before the competition.But with the OFC unlikely to uphold an appeal against its own decision-making processes, it could mean that the matter ends up before the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne.New Zealand captain Louis Fenton described his side’s disqualification as “a huge disappointment” and has taken a stab at NZF claiming the players “feel let down by the people who didn’t do the right thing in terms of checking out players’ eligibility”.The All Whites’ disqualification came after they’d topped Pool B with three wins out of three, and overcome Vanuatu in the penultimate round thanks to second-half goals from Monty Patterson and Bill Tuiloma.”That is the most disappointing thing,” Fenton told the Dominion Post.”We were the best team there and if we had played half right we would’ve qualified for the Olympics.”Everyone in the team wanted to go.”It is a massive thing.”It is not as big as a World Cup, but it is the second biggest tournament in football and to have that snatched from you and out of your control is pretty hard.”Wynne, the player at the centre of the controversy, has already represented New Zealand at under-20 and senior level after becoming a naturalised Kiwi.The left-back, 20, who was not born in the country and does not have a New Zealand parent or grandparent, would have to have lived in the country for five years from the age of 18 to be eligible, but is not old enough to have done so.Fiji Football Association President Rajesh Patel is confident that his country’s qualification for next year’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro will stand.”They [New Zealand Football] have all the rights to go through it [the appeal process] but as far we know we are qualified…and we are there – we are going to Rio,” he told Radio New Zealand.”Oceania Football knows that we have qualified and we are through.”Every country has to follow the rules and if you don’t follow the rules it’s very clear that FIFA will take action on it.”If a country protests against you and it’s found to be right, you will be disqualified and they [the OFC] must have found the evidence and the onus is on New Zealand to show the player is eligible to play for New Zealand.”….PACNEWSlast_img read more

It was all carelessness, says golf amateur

first_imgAmateur Anthony Quayle travelled to Papua New Guinea from Queensland, Australia, in an effort to gain professional tournament experience. As luck would have it, he became the runner-up of the 2016 PNG Golf Open after bowing out of a three-way playoff.In an exclusive interview at the Royal PNG Golf Course in Port Moresby, Quayle told Loop PNG: “I didn’t have a bogey all day so it was four birdies which were nice. I definitely gave myself a lot of opportunities today; I just couldn’t convert all of them. That is pretty normal and I am still happy with what I had.“What happened in the final playoff was all carelessness, I struck the ball nicely, giving all my concentration and estimation but unfortunately, it didn’t go my way as luck would have it.”Quayle’s caddie was his girlfriend, who inspired him to relax during the tournament.“I am happy to have Sophie out there with me as she brings the best out in me and playing out there, whenever I get frustrated, she keeps me a little bit more happy and focused.“However, the PGA has been very good to me and helped me out so I felt quite comfortable; I feel like my good stuff will be competitive.“My goal this year is to play as many professional events as I can to make that transition into the professional ranks a little easier and this is quite an achievement in a tournament like this.“It was all about the carelessness in the final hole of the playoff that I struck the ball without taking my time. I gave the game away but hope to be back and play in the 2017 Open with one or two changes that I feel I need to adjust on.”last_img read more

1×1 of Real Madrid: Courtois saves and Varane decides

first_imgKroos (replaced in 71 ’). From less to more, he celebrated his 30th birthday by bringing out a glove by serving Varane 0-2 in a foul. There is no opposite that he sleeps peacefully when the German is heading for a stationary ball play. In the second half he picked up very easily and in defense solved a very dangerous discharge of Jorge Molina in the area. Bale. His match could have been very different if he had just begun by controlling a shipment to Casemiro’s hole. It did not come out and it was done at night in that action and in the encounter. He was noticed in 65 ‘and in the discount, with two hands-on-hand (one in the discount) without success with Soria. He got even before the whistle with a wonderful pass to Valverde that resulted in the 0-3. He took the yellow one from Nyom, who made an ugly entry in the first half.Benzema (replaced in the 80 ’). He has learned to stand out even in his flattest days. No balls arrived and he struggled asking for it and holding it in three quarters of field. He almost got the reward in 42 ’, with a clearing and a maneuver of pure 9 that stopped Soria.Isco (changed in 71 ’). He lost incidence, but started very brave, wanting to receive at all times even though he swam among sharks. A work more physical than anything else yours.They also played …Fede Valverde (came out in 71 ’). He put the interest and attention necessary so that the team, which had missed him, did not disconnect. He galloped and assisted Modric in the final kickback.Vinicius (came out in 71 ’). It contributed, although in smaller doses by the dynamics of the shock, its characteristic verticality. Failed face to face with Soria in 89 ’. He also watched his back because the Getafe did not give up.Jovic (came out in the 80’s). According to the floor, the grass practically saw yellow. He then leaked a pass to Bale, who lost again with Soria only in the area. Courtois He wants what was his in his time of rojiblanco, the Zamora, and with performances like that of the Coliseum he will have it in his hand. At the break he left with three paradones, to Arambarri (Varane brushed before, for greater merit), to Fajr and Cabrera. Accumulate three doors to zero in a row in the League, including the Camp Nou, and eight in 15 appearances in the competition, more than 50% …Carvajal Cucurella very well reduced, bad customer always. From the center of the field he tried to help with support, without breaking in depth.Varane He started something scattered with his feet, but he always corrected himself with his speed. Very good positioning to clear the constant aerial balls of the Getafe. Author of the first two white goals: in the first, helped by a misplaced Soria at the start; and in the second, from powerful header to Kroos precise pass. He has three goals in LaLiga after the one he did to Espanyol.Militao It was not an easy afternoon, quite the opposite, for the slow adaptation process that Zidane has arranged for him. However, he solved it well, emerging gracefully from one of those parties that give trade. He taught ball mastery with a long displacement that put Bale in a frank situation for the 0-3.Mendy Go up and down like a locomotive, lane up-lane down. Very hard in the melee, fast to the cut and decisive in the pass that originated the first goal. He drew attention, or perhaps not so much, to give it with the right.Modric Key with your superior technique to withstand the suffocating pressure of Getafe, a team that runs as if angry with the opponent. He pushed one against the net in one last breath.Casemiro His first detail was a successful pass to Bale that nevertheless ended in nothing. Then he put on his work overall and enjoyed what he likes best: the brega. This day, because of the intensity of the Bordalás boys, bore his last name. In 63 ’he shot Molina at the edge of the small area.last_img read more
