The Irish outfit had won their first three games of the season but a loss in Glasgow and a draw against Cardiff in the last two rounds saw their early season momentum halted. And they were given a tough time in Italy against bottom-of-table Treviso but Ronaldson’s boot eventually saw them home with Jayden Hayward responding with six points for the home side. Connacht got their Guinness Pro12 campaign back on track on Friday night as Craig Ronaldson booted them to a scrappy 9-6 win over Treviso. Hayward booted Treviso into a sixth-minute lead before Ronaldson pulled a penalty wide when given the chance for a quick response. The inside-centre redeemed himself midway through the half to level the scores but Connacht were given a scare shortly after when Kieran Marmion’s tackle held up Michele Campagnaro on the line and the TMO decided not to award the Italians the try. Ronaldson then split the posts on the half hour to edge the visitors in front but Hayward’s second penalty two minutes before the break meant the scores were level at the interval. The home side made the brighter start in the second half but when Connacht were penalised for going in at the side Hayward missed his kick and the scores remained level. It was a tense, edgy affair and that spilled oner on the hour as Marmion and Sam Christie were both yellow-carded for an off the ball scuffle and while they were off the pitch Ronaldson nailed his third kick of the night to put Connacht ahead. Ronaldson missed a penalty in a nervy final 10 minutes but the visitors held on to leave Treviso still without a win this season. Press Association

Kochi, July 26: After putting up a clinical performance against the home side Kerala Blasters FC, A- League’s Melbourne City FC will be high on confidence as they take on La Liga club Girona FC in the second match of the Toyota Yaris La Liga World at the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium here on Friday.Melbourne City FC exhibited an attacking brand of football right from the word go and hit the back of the net almost at will registering a 6-0 win.On being asked about the team’s approach, Melbourne City head coach Warren Joyce said: “I wouldn’t say we played with any real aggression against Kerala Blasters but we certainly asked the players to put in a shift and help build their match fitness. We are focused on making sure we put the things we have worked on at training into the pitch.”The Englishman gave playing minutes to almost every player of his squad against Kerala Blasters and felt it was the right way to prepare ahead of the upcoming A-league season.But Melbourne City FC know Girona FC will be a different challenge altogether. After debuting in top-flight football in Spain last season, Girona FC finished a respectable 10th in the 2017-18 La Liga season. The highlight of their season was beating European champions and La Liga giants Real Madrid 2-1.”Girona are a strong side. La Liga is very competitive and for them to finish 10th last year shows they have some real quality,” added the Melbourne City FC manager.Girona FC will be looking at these next two matches in Kochi to test their side’s readiness for yet another La Liga season.”Both Melbourne City and Kerala Blasters FC are good teams, Melbourne had a great first game and will be high on confidence. It will be an interesting match and we have to be at our best to beat them,” Girona FC skipper Aleix Garcia Serrano said. IANS
Published on January 21, 2015 at 12:38 am Contact Paul: email@example.com | @pschweds Quentin Hillsman clapped his hands three times, shuffled his feet and shook his hips. He was demonstrating what his players do when the starting lineup is announced prior to each game.Sophomore forward Isabella Slim has performed this tradition before all 51 games in her career, but is seventh on the team in minutes this season with 12.4 per game, about 13 less than any other starter, for the No. 23 Orange (13-5, 3-2 Atlantic Coast).“I think people get caught up in the little routine,” Hillsman, the SU head coach, said. “It don’t matter. That’s like so important to everybody.”While Slim’s limited playing time is unusual for a starter, Hillsman has deployed the same strategy he used last year, when she averaged 13.8 minutes per game as a starter. Similar to last year, Slim has continued to struggle offensively, averaging 2.3 points and 2.4 rebounds this season.Hillsman’s explanation to keep her on the floor is simple. Her job is stay behind the 3-point line and open up space for teammates by extending the defense. But so far this season, she’s been ineffective, making only 10-of-36 3-pointers.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Once I get the ball, they’ll yell ‘That’s a shooter, you got to guard her.’ That’s what I notice most,” Slim said. “They’ve been calling ‘shooter’ a lot.“They just don’t give me any open looks.”Recently, Slim has been slumping even worse. In SU’s past nine games, she’s scored nine points, shot 3-for-13 from the field and 2-for-9 on 3s in 92 minutes. Meanwhile, Taylor Ford, the player that usually subs in for her, has been playing some of her best basketball of the season. In the same nine games, Ford has scored 69 points, shot 28-of-53 from the field and 4-of-18 from behind the arc in 180 minutes.Against Virginia on Jan. 11, Slim committed a foul, had a turnover, missed a 3 and committed another foul before subbing out for Ford less than two minutes into the game.On the first possession of Thursday’s game against Wake Forest, Slim attempted an entry pass to Briana Day under the basket. The ball was thrown too high, out of Day’s reach and bounced out of bounds. Hillsman yelled “Isabella, wake up please” from the sideline.Hillsman said the reason Slim doesn’t play as much is because of her lack of versatility. Cornelia Fondren and Ford, who are both more athletic than Slim, are better fits in his full-court press. By playing four guards at once, Syracuse is better equipped to execute Hillsman’s preferred up-and-down style, and thus Slim is kept out of the game.“Especially in a close game, I think everyone takes pride if you’re in at the end of the game,” Ford said, “because obviously Coach trusts you to help your team win.”With Slim barely playing in the second half in conference play, it’s Ford who has claimed a majority of playing time late in games.Though Hillsman said it’s not about trust, his lineups reflect what he thinks gives SU the best chance to win — and Slim hasn’t been in the mix.“I think it’s just a learning experience,” Slim said. “I just have to learn some more of the stuff and once I get better, I’ll get an opportunity to play during those times, too.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+

Wahbi Khazri secured a point for Tunisia against Mali in Suez to keep alive their hopes of qualifying for the round of 16 of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. The 28-year-old deflected free-kick earned a 1-1. Mali had taken the lead when goalkeeper Mouez Hassen spilt Diadie Samassekou’s corner into his own net. The tie started in a somewhat quick fashion with both Mali and Tunisia making early moves to find the net. Tunisia, however, settled quickly and enacted a solid game plan to suffocate the opposition defenders by pressing high up the pitch and preventing Moussa Marega from getting the ball in dangerous positions.Khazri got a chance to break the deadlock from a free kick in the 4th minute and Saint Etienne forward released an unstoppable shot only to be denied by the crossbar. Tunisia continued to pile up the pressure and another chance fell on the feet of Khazri. He tried an audacious one from close to the centre circle in the 6th minute but Djigui Diarra was well positioned to make the save.The Eagles of Carthage missed yet another opportunity to go ahead and this time it was from a corner. Sliti delivered a dangerous one and it found the head of Yassine Khenissi but he could only direct it over the bar from close range, much to the delight of Diarra. The Eagles gradually found their feet, beating the high press from their opponents and creating some chances.Their captain Diaby had the first crack on goal for Mali from long range in the 20th minute but his effort was tame and easy for Mouez Hassen to deal with.Tunisia had another attack 11 minutes later with Wahbi Khazri getting heavily involved. The former Sunderland man, however, shot well wide with the game still level. Tunisia came alive at the start of the second half and got the chance to score from a corner in the 57th minute. Khenessi flicked a set piece on from the near post but he watched on as the ball flew over the woodwork.Mali also created some chances afterwards and were rewarded with the first goal of the game three minutes later. Samassekou delivered a corner kick into a dangerous area and goalkeeper Mouez Hassan fumbled the ball into his own net. Tunisia pushed on for the equalizer and got one in the 70th minute. Khazri’s free-kick took a wicked deflection off Marega into the net. Mali turned on the heat in search of regaining the lead but Haidara’s shot was well saved by Hassen in the 82nd minute.Mali tried once again within added time and almost got ahead once again. Marega made a brilliant run to beat his market and was left with only the goalkeeper to beat but Hassen smartly came off his line and made a crucial save as the game ended in a stalemate. The draw leaves Tunisia with two points in Group E while Mali have four after beating Mauritania in their opening game.— Follow all the tournament games with #JoyAFCON.

FILE PHOTO: Eden HazardManchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester United and Chelsea’s chances of a top four Premier League finish will depend largely on Paul Pogba or Eden Hazard inspiring their faltering sides over the finish line.French midfielder Pogba and Belgian captain Hazard will line up on opposite sides on Sunday as United try to arrest a run of seven defeats in nine games.Fourth-place Chelsea, three points ahead of United in sixth, can realistically end the Red Devils’ chances of Champions League football next season but must end their own run of seven straight away league defeats to top six opposition to do so.However, whether Pogba and Hazard will be around next season no matter their clubs’ fate in the next three games is very much in doubt.The two could be teammates next season with speculation linking both with a move to Real Madrid. Both have voiced their appreciation for Real boss Zinedine Zidane and publicly flirted with the idea of a move to the Spanish giants.Eleven years on from contesting the Champions League final, the prospect of losing their landmark talent is a sign of the times for both clubs.Defeat to Manchester City in midweek saw United fall 25 points behind the league leaders.“That’s the reality that we are in. We are now round about where we have been the last five seasons and that’s not good enough,” said United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Friday.– Patience with Pogba running low –Pogba was the only player not from City or title challengers Liverpool to make the PFA team of the year this week, but for such a precocious talent and a world cup winner much more is demanded.His last goal from open play came the last time United and Chelsea met in the FA Cup back in February. After exploding into life early in Solskjaer’s caretaker reign, Pogba has returned to the peripheral force he was for much of Jose Mourinho’s time in charge at Old Trafford.However, it is emblematic of the huge challenge that lies ahead of Solskjaer that the players he is keen to keep hold of such as Pogba and David de Gea are running down their contracts, opening up the possibility of a move. Meanwhile, plenty of players in United’s bloated squad cannot be moved on due to their lavish wages.“Paul has done fantastic for us,” insisted Solskjaer.“The standards he has set when he is creating chances, scoring goals, doing loads of work, that’s just media, supporters, everyone, we look to Paul. Could you have done better?“He’s a human being as well, we are all the same. We want him to do well, he’s a leader in that dressing room and on the pitch for us.”Many in Manchester, though, would not be heartbroken to lose Pogba should United recoup the then world record £89 million they paid Juventus for him in 2016.By contrast, losing Hazard could be ruinous for Chelsea and unfortunately for the Londoners, of the two, he looks more likely to move to Madrid.Hazard has just one year left on his contract meaning Chelsea risk losing him for free if they do not let him leave this summer and will be unable to recruit a replacement unless they can get a FIFA transfer ban either overturned or suspended.Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has repeatedly called for more from Hazard, but his 19 goals and 13 assists are what have kept a side short on creativity still in the running for Champions League football next season, either via the top four or winning the Europa League.In the prime of their careers, Pogba and Hazard believe the Champions League stage is where they belong.But the current states of United and Chelsea mean that while moving to Madrid offers a guarantee of top-level European football, sticking around in Manchester of west London does not.Share on: WhatsApp
