Euro 2016 team of the quarter-finals – featuring two Arsenal stars

first_img 10 Midfield: Aaron Ramsey (Wales) – Ramsey looks unrecognisable to the player who Arsenal have been fielding all last season and has been one of the players of the tournament. He was everywhere against Belgium and came out with two assists to take his total to four during the Championships – no one else has more. Defender: Pepe (Portugal) – Once he cuts out all the play-acting and histrionics, Pepe is actually a world-class defender and he showed it during the game against Poland. The Real Madrid man made some vital interceptions and headers as the game ebbed towards penalties. 10 Goalkeeper: Manuel Neuer (Germany) – click the arrow, right, to see talkSPORT’s team of the quarter-finals – Neuer made a few good stops to keep out the Italians and was the hero of the penalty shootout, saving Matteo Darmian’s spot kick to ensure Germany progressed to the last four. 10 Forward: Antoine Griezmann (France) – Griezmann’s goal against Iceland saw him become the tournament’s top scorer with four. His effort just before half time was a brilliantly timed run and an even better finish as he dinked the ball over the on-rushing Hannes Halldorsson. 10 10 10 Forward: Hal Robson-Kanu (Wales) – The offers will surely be flooding in for the man without a club. He was a nightmare for Jordan Lukaku and Jason Denayer to deal with and scored one of the goals of the tournament so far with his amazing Cruyff-turn to avoid three players before calmly slotting home. Defender: Ashley Williams (Wales) – This was Williams’ best performance of the Euros so far as he kept the Welsh defence organised and defiant under some intense scrutiny from the Belgian attack. Also scored the equaliser with a thumping header. The semi-final line up of Euro 2016 is now complete with the dreams of four more countries coming to an end.Wales shocked Belgium with a magnificent 3-1 win while Iceland’s fairytale came to a crushing end with France romping to a 5-2.The other two went to penalty shootouts as Italy and Poland were dumped out of the tournament at the hands of Germany and Portugal respectively.Wales now face Portugal, with Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo coming face to face, while hosts France will be confronted with their biggest test so far as Germany stand in their way of the final.But who stood out during the quarter-final stage? Click the arrow above, right, to see talkSPORT’s team of the last eight in a 4-3-3 formation. 10 Midfield: Renato Sanches (Portugal) – Manchester United fans must be ruing not signing Sanches from Benfica after his all-action display against Poland. The 18-year-old scored in normal time and also converted his spot kick as he controlled the Portugal midfield. 10 Defender: Chris Gunter (Wales) – Gunter worked tirelessly throughout Wales’ incredible 3-1 win over Belgium, keeping Eden Hazard quiet for 90 minutes. The Reading full back also sent in the cross for Sam Vokes’ late goal. Defender: Kamil Glik (Poland) – Glik was on top form for Poland and managed to keep Cristiano Ronaldo at bay for the whole 120 minutes before scoring brilliantly from the penalty spot during the shootout. 10 10 Forward: Olivier Giroud (France) – Giroud put in a magnificent man of the match performance against Iceland, scoring twice and assisting another. His physicality was a constant source of trouble for Iceland as France hammered five past them.last_img read more

BCCI under RTI? Ministers may oppose, ex-cricketers welcome

first_imgUnion Sports Minister Ajay Maken’s attempts to reform sports bodies seem to have hit a roadblock.Sources told Headlines Today on Tuesday that some senior ministers were opposed to the Sports Development Bill, which seeks to bring Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) under Right to Information Act (RTI) among other things. Sources said ministers have reservations against certain provisions of the proposed bill. They plan to raise the objections after it is introduced for the Cabinet approval later in the day. They have objection particularly to fixing the retirement age and tenure of chiefs of sports bodies.Some Opposition leaders have also expressed their reservations against the proposed bill. Interestingly, most of the sports bodies are headed by politicians without any change at the top for years.Reacting to the Sports Bill, senior BJP leader V.K. Malhotra said, “It is draconian law and not acceptable to any international sports bodies. If age is the factor, then prime minister, Delhi chief minister and Pranab Mukherjee (Finance Minister) are all above 70.”Some BCCI members have called it a tool to harass the cricket body.Young BJP MP and BCCI member Anurag Thakur opposed the proposal to bring the board under RTI. Thakur told Headlines Today that it could be used to harass the cricket body.”I oppose Sports Bill. RTI is a tool to harass. There is no age limit for politicians and prime minister. First the (sports) ministry should look into Sports Authority of India. It is an attempt to hide Commonwealth Games scam. Politicians are required in sport bodies,” Thakur insisted.advertisementCongress MP and BCCI vice president Rajiv Shukla said, “I have not seen the draft bill. Show me the draft bill. How can it be under RTI when it does not take any grant from the government?”Former captains welcome moveFormer Indian cricket captains Kapil Dev and Mohammed Azharuddin favoured the BCCI becoming a national sports federation and falling under the purview of the RTI Act.Reacting to the developments on Sports Bill, former Indian cricket captain Kapil Dev said, “If government formulates a rule, the BCCI should follow the framework of the guidelines and I believe BCCI can work independently but must always toe the government line.” Azharuddin, a Congress MP from Moradabad, said, “It is good for sports bodies and their professional running. It (law) should be for all Sports Federations and there should be no exception.”Another former national cricketer Ajay Jadeja said, “The BCCI is really doing well but if the government is making some law then everyone has to come under it. As far as RTI is concerned, selection should not be a factor. Otherwise, BCCI should not be worried about the RTI.”Bill may affect ruling, Oppn parties alikeA number of politicians heading various sports bodies of the country for years could be in trouble if the Sports Bill becomes law.The proposed bill stipulates a maximum term of 12 years for presidents and eight years for all other office-bearers of the national sports federations.Among those who could be affected by the legislation of Sports Bill include jailed Congress MP Suresh Kalmadi who heads the Athletics Federation of India and the party’s senior leader Jagdish Tytler who is the president of Judo Federation of India.Leaders of main opposition party BJP, including Yashwant Sinha who heads the All India Tennis Association and V.K. Malhotra who heads the Archery Association of India might also lose their authority.Indian National Lok Dal leader Abhay Chautala was yet another politician who heads the Indian Boxing Federation.Left supports Maken’s Sports BillEven as some ministers and Congress MPs were opposed to Maken’s Sports Bill, it found support from the Left. CPI leader D. Raja said the BCCI must be accountable to government for the tax breaks it gets.”The BCCI gets tax exemptions and thus who is it accountable to. There should be some body that it should be answerable to,” Raja argued.last_img read more


first_imgBesides Dhoni, the other big players in the Pune team Besides Dhoni, the other big players in the Pune team are Ravichandran Ashwin, Ajinkya Rahane, Australia captain Steven Smith and South African batsmen Faf du Plessis. Dhoni is also pleased about CSK coach Stephen Fleming joining him at Pune. “The life becomes slightly easy with him around. We know each other for long time. He is a fantastic coach. His management skills are very good. What I really like is that he is calm like me. It is good to have him and hopefully it will work for us.” On Rahane, he said: “He is someone who is very consistent. He may not be part of the playing 11 regularly in the T20 Internationals but that is because your openers Rohit (Sharma) and Shikhar (Dhawan) are doing really well. But if you look at his performances in the IPL, Rahane is among top-two, top three batsmen”. PTI BS BSlast_img read more

Neymar ‘nearly lost ability to walk’

first_imgNeymar Neymar recalls 2014 injury: I nearly lost ability to walk Harry Sherlock 23:06 12/27/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Neymar injury Getty Neymar Brazil PSG World Cup The Brazil international suffered fractured vertebrae at the 2014 World Cup, but the consequences nearly curtailed his entire career Neymar has recalled the brutal memory of his injury at the 2014 World Cup, revealing that he could not move his legs after his clash with Juan Zuniga.During Brazil’s 2-1 win quarter-final win over Colombia, Neymar was tackled from behind by Zuniga, with a knee to his back leaving the PSG superstar with fractured vertebrae.Then at Barcelona, Neymar was subsequently ruled out of the remainder of the tournament, and missed Brazil’s 7-1 loss to Germany in the semi-finals as a result. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Neymar had no idea of the severity of his injury initially, insisting that he wished to continue, and says that it was Real Madrid left-back Marcelo who initially noticed how serious the winger’s injury was.”When he tackles me, I feel a reaction, but I try to get up. I was in a lot of pain and I remember that I had my head on the ground and Marcelo was saying “no, no, get the doctors in.” I said: “No, no, no, I want to play” because I wanted to score,” he said in an interview with former team-mate Gerard Pique.”I couldn’t turn and the doctors came in… I couldn’t manage to lift my legs. I couldn’t move my legs and the doctor took me out and I started to cry because it was painful and I didn’t feel anything. I didn’t feel my legs, so I went to the hospital that’s in the stadium.Neymar injury“And there they left me and I remember that I was with my leg bent and when I stretched it out… incredible pain. Incredible. Then I understood that there was no way I could continue.”Neymar has even revealed that the injury was so bad he could have lost the ability to walk completely.He added: “Then I went to the hospital, did the tests, and they told me: ‘I have two pieces of news. One good and one bad. The bad one: you can’t play at the World Cup, it’s over for you.” And I’m like: ‘what’s the good one?’”‘The good news is that afterwards, you will be able to walk, because two centimetres to the side… football is over for you.’ And, well, there I just wanted them to tell my family. And they were all there, my girlfriend, dad, mom and sister, they tell them that they can see me and, well, then a whole bad week started.”[I watched the semi-final] at home because when I got injured I went to the team camp where my team-mates were and took my stuff, saw the doctor and so on and then went home by helicopter because I couldn’t move my legs. I was in a wheelchair and I went home, and there I watched it all.”last_img read more

Photos: Urban Meyer’s Basement Severely Flooded

first_imgUrban Meyer's has several feet of water in his flooded Basement.Urban Meyer Basement FloodedOhio State head coach Urban Meyer has a pretty decent contingency plan heading into the 2015-2016 season, given the fact that he has three quarterbacks capable of winning him another national championship. But he didn’t have much of a contingency plan for his basement after his sump pump broke this past weekend. Meyer’s basement flooded with what appears to be at least a foot of water after yet another rainstorm in Ohio. His wife, Shelley, tweeted out a photo of the damage – both before and after it was drained. Busted Coverage tipped us off:@mariawsyx6 @wsyx6 @SlingerWSYX6 @basementdoctor Darn! Too late for me, Maria. Mine flooded last night. #sumpumprobs— Shelley Meyer (@spinnershells) June 21, 2015Just home from baseball in Indy-the water AND the carpet AND the drywall are all gone. #sumpumpfail. #2muchrain— Shelley Meyer (@spinnershells) June 22, 2015In reality, it was probably time for an upgrade on some of the furniture down there anyway. Luckily, we’re pretty sure Meyer can afford to pay someone to fix it all.last_img read more
