The Nervión ahead of the quarter of an hour with a goal from Fernando, who controlled, amassed and defined perfectly before the goal of Aitor Fernández, one of the best goalkeepers of this season. The goal woke up the combined granota.Óscar Duarte with a superb header, assisted by Rubén Rochina, put the boards in the Andalusian capital, but the domain returned to Seville again. Lopetegui opted for a more direct game, but it was not until the second half when his team managed to get ahead and sentence the Levantine team.Lucas Ocampos scored 2-1 with a distant shot and Óliver Torres, assisted by De Jong, achieved the final 3-1 with a pitch from the heart of the area that killed Paco López’s team. In this way, Sevilla takes the first duel between ‘First’ of the round of round of 16.The ‘Chimy’ rescues OsasunaFor his part, Osasuna needed to entrust himself to ‘Chimy’ Ávila to prevent the elimination of his own. The Argentine forward was substitute and entered the field in the 65th minute with two other starters: Nacho Vidal and Darko Brasanac. The picture was bleak for the Navarrese, who lost 2-0 when there were 15 minutes left for 90.Morcillo made the first and Roncaglia – in his own goal – achieved the second, both in the initial act and with the collaboration of the young goalkeeper of Osasuna. Juan Pérez, already dated the first team, did not have his day and gave away the second goal of the ‘Dean’ with a defective clearance. However, that income of two goals did not serve the Huelva.Brasanac cut distances in 76 with an unstoppable parabolic header for the local goal and Avila managed 2-2 after getting rid of an opponent with a possible foul. The Rosario displaced a player from Recre, but the referee – in the absence of VAR – considered that it had been valid. The draw took the game to extra time and there appeared Íñigo Pérez to resolve the contest at 111 minutes.center_img Zaragoza has given the first surprise of the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey at the expense of a Mallorca that becomes the first team that falls eliminated (3-1) in the round, from which a Sevilla left unscathed He dominated the Levant (3-1) and an Osasuna that had to go back to the Recreativo de Huelva (2-3).In La Romareda the elimination of a Mallorca that had no response to the Aragonese gale of the second part was forged. Álex Blanco, Javier Puado and Miguel Linares scored for Zaragoza – between the 48th and 75th minute – and leaving the vermilion team without options, which paid dearly for the effort made in the League against Valencia.Aleix Febas closed the game with a good goal that made up the score.

Mudo Vázquez lets himself be loved by Lazio: “They are a great team”

first_imgAnd if there is a team that has already taken an interest in Mudo, it is Lazio, where some former teammate has already suggested that they rejoin their paths. This is Tucu Correa, a partner of Franco Vázquez in Sevilla in the 16/17 and 17/18 seasons and who is now active in the whole of the Roman capital. Social networks were the framework in which Correa asked Mudo to end up in Lazio, something that Mudo took as a joke but without closing any door: “We know each other from Seville, we have played together. He was joking, I don’t know if Lazio wants me or not, but he is a great team. It would be nice to play in the ‘biancoceleste’ shirt. “ With the departure of Banega confirmed and that of Nolito almost also, in Nervión the view is set on the players whose contracts end in 2021. And of them, the one with the most brides to leave when the market starts working again is Franco Vázquez. Arrived in 2016, Mudo faces his fourth season at Nervión and is now even the team’s fourth captain after Carriço’s departure. However, from Italy, siren songs continue to come that he listens with delight.“I have a great memory of Italy. In Palermo I lived beautiful years, I like Serie A. Yes, in the future I would like to return. I still have a contract year, I have been in Sevilla for four seasons and I feel at home. I like the city, the club thinks big, I don’t know what will happen. When this complicated moment ends, we will consider whether to continue or separate, “said Franco Vázquez in an interview with TMW.

Marsh heading to Finland on trial

first_imgCavalier’s attacking midfielder Chevone ‘Messi’ Marsh, who impressed at the schoolboy and Red Stripe Premier League levels, is set to jet off to a two-month trial stint with top flight Finnish outfit Kuopian Palloseura, having impressed club scouts two months ago. Twenty-two year-old Marsh represented Calabar High as a schoolboy and made his debut at Cavalier at age 11 in the Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) under-15 league. He has also featured for the club at the under-17 and KSAFA Super League levels. The tricky midfielder has developed over the last four years into one of the most talented players in the Red Stripe Premier League. Despite Cavalier’s relegation this season, club boss Rudolph Speid said his charge is one of the most destructive midfield players and deserves to take his career to the next level. “The fact that Messi (Chevone Marsh) was called up to the national team as one of four players to play in our premier league, alone says that he has impressed a lot of persons,” said Speid He explained that scouts were impressed with Marsh, and backs the player to continue impressing and making his mark. “I am pleased for him. He has been our longest serving player and I can only hope for the best for him because he has the potential to excel,” continued Speid, while stressing “he is one of the most destructive players in the premier league”. Meanwhile, in an email correspondence, Jarmo Heiskanen, managing director of Kuopion Palloseura, confirmed that his club would like to invite the Jamaican for a football trial from April 30 through to July 2 this year. The club has played in Finland’s top flight for 50 seasons and claimed five league titles, two Finnish Cup titles and one Finnish League Cup title. It is also called KuPS, and has finished runners-up in the league nine times and claimed a number of junior titles.last_img read more

Exclusive – Carragher backs Liverpool to beat Man United to Champions League spot

first_imgLiverpool legend Jamie Carragher has backed his former side to beat Manchester United to a place in next season’s Champions League.Brendan Rodgers’ Reds now sit sixth in the Premier League, two points behind their rivals who sit in fourth position, following a weekend where Louis van Gaal’s side lost to Swansea City and fellow rivals for a Champions League qualification spot, Tottenham, dropped points with a 2-2 draw against West Ham.And Carragher, who previously thought the Merseysiders should focus on qualifying for the competition through winning the Europa League, now reckons, thanks to their excellent recent form, they have a great chance of beating their rivals to a top four spot.“I have said for the last few weeks I didn’t think Liverpool would get into the top four because of their FA Cup and European commitments and I felt Manchester United would,” he told Drivetime.“I don’t know if people are saying Man United are not playing well, they’re out of form or whether that’s just how Manchester United are playing this season under Louis van Gaal.“The fact that they’ve dropped points can happen, they’ve been on a great run, but Liverpool are coming into great form and I think a lot will be decided in the game [between the two sides] at Anfield and I’d have to fancy Liverpool to win that game with the form both teams are in.“Whether the accumulation of games will be a factor for Liverpool, who knows? But that game at Anfield will have a massive bearing on it and I’d have to fancy Liverpool at the moment.”“I’d be surprised if [Brendan Rodgers] goes with a full strength team against Manchester City on Sunday because with that win over Southampton and Manchester United and Spurs dropping points it looks like the top four is really there for Liverpool now.”“Before the weekend it was still a very outside chance and maybe the Europa League was their best chance [of qualifying for the Champions League] but now I think there is more chance of Liverpool getting into the top four than winning the Europa League and it maybe something the manager and the staff assess.”last_img read more

first_imgCELTIC: CHAMPIONSCELTIC’S legions of Donegal fans are celebrating in style in Glasgow as Neil Lennon’s team were presented with their 38th league title trophy today.More than 5,000 fans from across Ireland made the trip to Paradise and were treated to a Celtic classic with a 4-0 win over St Johnstone.And they heard the Hoops boss say he wants to stay – despite links to Everton in the media. “Everton are a big club with a great history, but so are Celtic,” said the Armagh man.“This club has given me everything, it’s given me my chance in management, it’s given me some of the greatest days of my life and I’ve got a great young team here, which we all want to progress.“I’ve got a great belief in myself. So, if any opportunity came along further down the line, it wouldn’t faze me.“But there’s not many jobs bigger than Celtic and there’s not many jobs under the scrutiny, analysis and opinion of a job like Celtic.” The Hoops stamped their authority on proceedings today from the first kick of the ball and took the lead after just 60 seconds through Joe Ledley.Playing with a purpose and intensity, the hosts doubled their advantage through Anthony Stokes before the break and James Forrest´s swept home number three shortly after the restart.Fraser Wright´s late own goal was the final flourish on a sparkling showing, and ensured there was already a party atmosphere in the stadium before Scott Brown held the silverware aloft after the final whistle.And the manager was pleased that his players had risen to the occasion by turning in a stylish display on the pitch.“It was the most pleasing thing,” he said. “Obviously, it´s a very significant day when you pick the championship trophy up. We put a strong team out in preparation for the cup final and I felt we were fantastic. “There was a flow and energy, and a freshness about the team. It was a very pleasing aspect of the day and then the celebrations afterwards.“The home form since the turn of the year has been as good as I have seen in my time here. We have won 12 out of 12 and the least amount of goals we have scored was three against Hibs. Everything else has been four and there was even a six against Dundee United.“So at home we have been playing some spectacular football. We know we need to tidy up away from home but the league is won now and we can really focus on the finishing the season with a cup final.”There were memorable scenes after the trophy was held aloft by captain Scott Brown, with the players, manager and backroom staff all taking the acclaim of the Celtic faithful during a lap of honour. “These are days you want to cherish and it´s important for the players appreciate what they have done as it goes by very quickly,” said the Hoops boss.“It was just nice to walk around with the trophy. These sorts of moments live with you for a long time. It´s a special feeling. To win your country´s championship over 38 games is an achievement and one that shouldn’t be taken for granted.“It’s better because it’s the next one, as it proves we are not a flash in the pan team. We we have a job to do and a responsibility to keep winning trophies. It´s part of the club´s DNA and do it in a certain way.”DONEGAL’S HOOPS FANS CELEBRATE AS CELTIC PRESENTED WITH SPL TROPHY IN PARADISE was last modified: May 11th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:DONEGAL’S HOOPS FANS CELEBRATE AS CELTIC PRESENTED WITH SPL TROPHY IN PARADISElast_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL BOSTON GFCFORMER county star Kevin Cassidy has moved to Boston and is now playing football for the city’s GAA team Donegal Boston.Gaoth Dobhair star Cassidy lined up with the exiles at the weekend – which saw them defeating Kerry.He is expected to play with the side in Boston for the rest of the summer Our match report is below:From Rory O’Donnell in BostonKerry 1-5 Donegal 2-8Donegal lined out with two new faces in the team, Des Dolan and Kevin Cassidy, and a rearranged side with a player or two out of his usual position. Considered hot favorites now, there were some raised eyebrows as the northerners struggled to gel and Kerry really had it well within their grasp to pull of a surprise result, but the Kingdom left too many chances behind them and Donegal came away with the win. At the end of the first half it was Kerry who held the lead, by 1-3 to 0-2. It could have been more had Kerry taken their chances. There were at least three scoring chances from frees that would be considered bankers on most occasions, but Kerry squandered them.The game remained scoreless for a long period as Kerry seemed a little tentative and Donegal were working with the rearranged side. Eventually the scores came, the first for Kerry from Donnacha Fenton. Brian White answered right away, and was followed by a Dessie Dolan free. Surely Donegal would start to motor now, but Kerry somehow managed to keep on top. Conor O’Brien leveled after Fenton took a short 45, and then Mark Schutte netted in fine style for Kerry to put the cat among the pigeons. Paul O’Neill pointed to put Kerry in a four point lead at the break.Donegal continued to struggle to get their act together in the second half, but Kerry also continued to kick their chance of a big win away. Two early chances went a-begging for Kerry and time and again the ball was lost due to mishandling. Donegal took the lead with a goal from Fergal Clancy. Kerry turned the ball over in attack, the ball found its way to Garbhan Friel, who played it on to Clancy, and the low shot found the back of the net. Kerry’s strategy was the high ball into Schutte, and it generated a penalty, which Paul O’Neill took and Peter Boyle saved. Another chance gone.With Donegal leading by a point and the forward line misfiring somewhat, Kerry still had plenty of possession and another goal chance. Schutte beat his man, found O’Brien on the edge of the small square but the Dubliner’s shot was blocked on the line. When Donegal had their chance to put the game away at the other end they did. Kerry pushed forward as time wound down, and Donegal broke downfield with an extra man. Kieran McWilliams was foundbehind the last man and the corner forward buried the ball. Donegal added another Dolan point to end up six point winners, but in doing so will consider themselves very lucky that their opponents failed to make the most of their chances.Referee: John Fitzpatrick (New York) Man of the Match: Fergal Clancy (Donegal)Kerry: S.
