Manchester City rewarded Manuel Pellegrini’s work with a new contract. The new deal ties the Chilean manager to Etihad Stadium until the end of the 2016-17 Premier League season.

It was speculated by many pundits, supporters and gambling blogs that City’s Chilean manager is no more than a benchwarmer until Pep Guardiola becomes available. However, Manchester City ended, or at least postponed all this with a Manuel Pellegrini contract extension. The new deal will run out at the end of the 2016-17 Premier League season as opposed to his previous one which was due to expire next summer. Will the Pellegrini contract give City the distraction-free base they’ll need?

Pellegrini’s job was reportedly under threat after his team produced a poor second half in last year’s Premier League season. That run ended without a trophy, and this is always a possible motivation for change at Etihad Stadium. However, Pellegrini, who revealed this offseason, that he needed a new Lionel Messi, got Raheem Sterling to take on next year’s campaign. Man City are 1.67 (4/6) favourites at West Brom in their first league game this season on Monday night. Gambling news reported that Sterling is 2.75 (7/4) to score at Bet365.

Manchester City announced that Manuel Pellegrini signed a new, two-year contract with the club. His previous deal was due to run out at the end of the 2015-16 Premier League season. The news about the Manuel Pellegrini contract extension can come as a surprise to many, who follow sports scores.

It was speculated long that City wanted to acquire the services of ex-Barcelona and current Bayern Munich boss, Pep Guardiola. Former AC Milan, Chelsea and Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti and Jurgen Klopp, who recently left Dortmund were also mentioned in the media as possible replacements for Pellegrini. Answering a question regarding that, Pellegrini said,“I am not talking about Pep Guardiola, he is a manager that every team will want to manage because he is a great manager.”

He added, “I have no problem with my relations inside the club. I know exactly how the owners think. I was used last season to the speculation. Carlo Ancelotti had a contract signed and Jurgen Klopp had also a contract. For me, the owners are happy with the way I am working. Me, I am also happy at this club. It is impossible to know about the future.”

The Pellegrini contract also covered his lieutenants, assistant manager Ruben Cousillas, goalkeeping coach Xabier Mancisidor and fitness coach Jose Cabello. His commissions have also been extended by the Sky Blues. Pellegrini commented the set of new contracts happily. He expressed, “The contract shows the club trusts in my work”.

It seems unlikely that Pep Guardiola is joining Manchester City next summer, as the club announced a Manuel Pellegrini contract extension, online mobile news report. The Chilean manager took over Man City before the 2013-14 season and took the Sky Blues to a Premier League title and a Capital One Cup victory instantly. After a trophyless second season however his future was questioned. His previous contract was to run out next summer, but he signed a new, two-year deal.

Pellegrini said, “I am proud to manage Manchester City and am therefore very pleased to have agreed this contract. I have a very good quality group of players and a great team of people to work with on and off the field and at all levels of the club. I am focused on the coming season and confident that my team and I will respond to the constant support shown to us by everyone including of course our fantastic fans.”

The Manuel Pellegrini contract extension was also commented by Manchester City’s CEO, Ferran Soriano, who previously worked with Pep Guardiola at FC Barcelona. According to Soriano, the Sky Blues gave the new deal to the 61-year-old because the team improved significantly under his supervision.

Soriano said, “We are delighted to reach this agreement with Manuel Pellegrini, who has already contributed so much to the development of Manchester City in his first two years with us and we look forward to further progress in the seasons ahead. This agreement allows Manuel to focus on the challenge of guiding a team capable of both fighting for domestic titles and competing for European honours.”

Di Maria Transfer to PSG Completed

Aug 06, 2015
Di Maria transfer to Paris complete

He will love it in Paris, too, don’t worry (Photo: SkySports)

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain both announced that the Angel di Maria transfer between the two clubs was completed.

The Argentine midfielder joins the French champions after an unsuccessful spell at Old Trafford. Though it seemed at the start of the 2014-16 Premier League season that Di Maria will be an asset for the Red Devils, he failed to fulfill the expectations. After he arrived as the most expensive player in British football, it seemed that he is a perfect fit to Louis van Gaal’s system.

The inside midfielder is able to cover a lot of distance moving horizontally on the pitch while also making dangerous forward runs. He is a player hard to come by in European football, but very useful in a creative three-man midfield, or a midfield diamond. He can also play in the forward line, and he is usually referred as a winger, since his natural role is traditionally unknown in English football.

SkySports.com: Manchester United confirm sale of Angel Di Maria to PSG

 
The Angel di Maria transfer from Manchester United to PSG was finally completed. Online gambling news reported last week that the two clubs have agreed on his transfer fee. However the Argentine midfielder signed his four-year contract only on Thursday. Manchester United confirmed first via their official social media feed, that the Di Maria transfer was done.

The player, who was an integral member of the Argentina national team that finished as runners-up in last year’s FIFA World Cup in Brazil, as followers of sports scores might remember, was understandably delighted. He revealed, “I am very proud, and can’t wait, to wear the colours of Paris Saint-Germain. I want to win every competition we enter, both in France and Europe. I want to win the Champions League, which is a dream for all footballers, for a second time.”

His abilities were praised by Paris Saint-Germain’s Club Presient, Nasser Al Khelaifi. He said, “He is an incredibly talented player, with a frightening speed and ability to beat opposition players. He adds his name to the club’s strong South American community and, above all, the big Paris Saint-Germain family.”

TheGuardian.com: Ángel Di María: the reluctant Manchester United player who ended up a costly mistake

 
Soon after the Di Maria transfer from Real Madrid to Manchester United was announced, it seemed that the Argentine attacker regretted the move instantly. He bid farewell to Madrid fans in an open letter twelve months ago, and it was clear that he did not intended to play for another team. For him Manchester United was better than nothing, stunning many of those, who follow live sports results.

He wrote last summer, “Unfortunately, I have to go but I want to make clear that this was never my desire. My cycle at Real Madrid has come to an end. It’s impossible to capture everything I’ve experienced here in a few lines but I hope this letter communicates what I feel at the moment. There are many things that I value and many of them have nothing to do with my salary. I hope to find them at Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs in the world.”

It was especially an upsetting entrée after Manchester United invested GBP 59.7 million in the Di Maria transfer plus the Argentine’s luxury wages. He became the most expansive player in the history of English football, however he was unable to live up to the expectations. He wanted a leading role as a starter, but he wasn’t able to establish himself in United’s first XI.

Angel Di Maria signed a four-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain completing a EUR 63 million switch from Manchester United. The Di Maria transfer was a record in Manchester United’s history twelve months ago, but a year later he left to join the French champions. PSG will present the midfielder to the supporters before their first league game next week, online mobile news report.

The Argentine traveled to Qatar to complete the medical tests. Manchester United lost GBP 16 million regarding fees with the double Di Maria transfer in twelve months. Di Maria became the most expensive player in the history of British football right after he was the best player on the field in last year’s Champions League final. Real Madrid beat city rivals Atletico Madrid 4-1 in Lisbon.

He played in 27 Premier League games during his year-long spell in Manchester. Though his tally of three goals was disappointing, he was third in the league regarding assists with 10. He scored his last league goal in October, and after that it became obvious that he is unable to settle in at Old Trafford.

Aug 06, 2015

Mourinho and Abramovich can work together without any problems, the Special One revealed before the 2015-16 Premier League season.

Jose Mourinho expressed that despite he was able to get along well personally with the Russian magnate between 2004 and 2007 too, they had professional disagreements. That eventually led to the Portuguese leaving Stamford Bridge in September 2007. However since Mourinho returned to London in 2013, the two enjoy a fantastic relationship. And now they are working for Chelsea’s second title in a row. The Blues are favourites to win the 2015-16 Premier League season. Bet365 offers their title defence at odds of 2.63 (13/8).

TheGuardian.com: José Mourinho says disagreements with Abramovich in the past at Chelsea

 
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho revealed that any fight with club owner Roman Abramovich ended long ago. Mourinho delivered the Premier League title in both of his first two seasons at Chelsea between 2004 and 2006, as many of those, who follow live sports results might remember. However, the Portuguese left in September 2007 after Mourinho and Abramovich had a quarrel.

After he returned in 2013, he needed only two years to bring back the Premier League trophy to Stamford Bridge. He revealed that in his first spell at Chelsea he had some professional arguments with the Russian club owner. He said, “In my first period, my personal relationship [with Abramovich] was very good [but] professionally we had some interferences and a bit of a disagreement with some ideas.”

He added, “In this moment we don’t have this problem. When I left Real Madrid to come here, Mr Abramovich asked me to fight for titles. In my first season we were almost there, in my second season we did it and in my third season if you are close, you can always do it.”

ESPNFC.com: Mourinho and Abramovich – Chelsea manager happy with Roman Abramovich relationship

 
Mourinho and Abramovich are having a smooth relationship, according to the world class manager, since he returned to Chelsea from Real Madrid in 2013. Jose Mourinho revealed that he was asked to fight for the title by the Russian club owner, and this is exactly what he wants to do this year, online mobile news report.

However, the Special One thinks that the rivals will pose a real threat on the Blues’ way for their second title in a row. He said, “Arsenal are a fantastic club with great players. Liverpool have amazing investment. Man City is a squad to love and a club, with two Premier Leagues in the last four or five years. And Man United with everything – the history, the players, the investment.”
Reigning champions Chelsea was defeated by FA Cup winner Arsenal 1-0 in the Community Shield last Sunday. The Blues kick off their Premier League season at the Stamford Bridge against Swansea on Saturday.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is preparing to fight for his fourth Premier League title in his third year of his second spell at Stamford Bridge. To claim the trophy, it is also important that Mourinho and Abramovich are all good, as gambling news reported, despite they had some disagreements in their past.

Mourinho also goes for his second title in a row. The Stamford Bridge outfit would be the first side to retain the Premier League trophy since Manchester United in 2009. The Portuguese said that this year’s story will be similar to recent seasons. He said, “The top five are the top five, and why not a club like Tottenham to get in there?”

He added, “But in the end history plays a part and investment plays a part. Chelsea (were) four times champion in the last decade.” Mourinho also mentioned Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United as potential title contenders. He did not left out Manchester City of course, the team that will be Chelsea’s opponent in the Blues’ first away game on next Sunday, as many, who follows sports scores might know.

Platini FIFA President Run: The UEFA Boss Is the Favorite

Aug 01, 2015
Michel Platini FIFA president

The Michel Platini FIFA President run was launched officially as the UEFA leader confirmed that he will run for Sepp Blatter’s position.

The FIFA presidency will soon be vacated, as many who follow sports scores count the days. After Platini revealed his desire to lead international football’s governing body, he is considered as the favorite to win the next election, gambling news report. Platini is 1.53 (8/15) top dog at Bet365, while his major challenger, Prince Ali Al-Hussein’s victory is priced at 4.00 (3/1).

Some of his opponents consider Platini as the protégé of Sepp Blatter. They argue that Platini’s presidency won’t bring any major changes into the corrupt world of FIFA. Others think that his strong criticism of Blatter was inappropriate and this might hurt his chances in Africa. However, all this might not be enough to confirm his supporters to vote against him.

UEFA.com: Michel Platini FIFA president?

 
UEFA President Michel Platini has confirmed that he will run for the FIFA presidency in the organization’s next election. He considers this decision as a major point in his life, and launching the Platini FIFA president run might affect the future of international football indeed, according to several gambling blogs.

Platini wrote a letter to all the 209 FIFA members’ representatives. He said, “There are times in life when you have to take your destiny into your own hands. I am at one of those decisive moments, at a juncture in my life and in events that are shaping the future of FIFA.”

He went on, “During this last half-century or so, FIFA has only had two presidents. This extreme stability is something of a paradox in a world that has experienced radical upheavals and in a sport that has undergone considerable economic change. However, recent events force the supreme governing body of world football to turn over a new leaf and rethink its governance.”

Platini also added that he wants to transform FIFA to an organization where everyone respects the diversity of the game around the world. He also emphasized that he cannot succeed alone. The election will be held at FIFA’s extraordinary congress in Zurich, February 2016.

Timeslive.co.za: Africa won’t have Michel Platini FIFA President

 
France might have strong connections with Africa. These relations might be even stronger regarding football than other aspects of life. However the continent’s football representatives are yet to become enthusiast about the Michel Platini FIFA president run. Leader of the Liberian Football Association, Musa Bility went as far as to say Platini’s presidency would be unacceptable.

He said, “Platini would not represent change, he has been a FIFA vice-president for eight years. He should not replace Sepp Blatter, it would be unacceptable.” Bility revealed that he will also stand for the presidency. However, according to experts of gambling facts, it might be hard for him to be nominated by the minimum of five associations before next year’s election.

Even Platini’s friend, Jacques Anouma, the former president of the Ivory Coast football association, expressed that he won’t support Platini by default. He said, “I do not deny the excellent relationship I have with Michel Platini as I have with many other leaders of world football. However I would like to advise that I will side with the decision of CAF to safeguard the interest of African football.”

By criticizing Sepp Blatter, Platini might worsen his situation in Africa, where the Swiss sports leader remains extremely popular. Abedi Pele, former vice president of the Ghana federation and three-time African world player of the year said, “His harsh words against Blatter were not right. He could have disagreed in another way.”

Though the 2015 Tour de France produced a relatively tight finish, the last stage was comfortable for Chris Froome.

The overall classification was decided when the pack crossed the finish line at the end of the first lap. The man wearing the yellow jersey came first, becoming the first British rider to win the Tour de France twice. He also became the first rider to win both the overall race and the mountain classification since Eddy Merckx in 1970.

After claiming his second Tour de France title, Froome completed the remaining laps together with his teammates. Though he was accused of cheating, he was abused and a fan even threw a cup of urine at him, he did not lost his momentum during the Tour. With the help of his team, he was able to won the competition again, two years after his first victory in 2013.

The Guardian: Chris Froome joins legends of Tour de France with second win

 
British rider Chris Froome completed his second Tour de France victory on Sunday, gambling news report. After the last stage saw him topping the general classification for the second time, the 30-year-old entered the Pantheon of cycling, joining Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault, Miguel Indurain, Alberto Contador and co.

There are officially 21 riders, who won the Tour more than once, as many of those, who follow sports scores might know. Plus there is Lance Armstrong of course, who came first a record seven times before he was stripped from his achievements due to his doping scandal.

Team Sky was wearing a special jersey for the last stage that was unveiled when the rain stopped and the riders got rid of their rain coats. As Froome already wrapped up the overall victory by the first lap, he was able to approach the finish line at a comfy pace, hand-in-hand with his teammates.

TheLocal.fr: Froome defies abuse to win Tour de France

 
Chris Froome had to surmount a lot of things to claim his second Tour de France victory, as many, who follow live sports results might remember. He was charged with doping by the media, urine was thrown at him and he was spit and abused on the way. However, it was an incredible feeling for him to win the competition for the second time.

After crossing the finish line hand-in-hand with his teammates, he spoke about his feelings. He said, “This is such a great race, what can I say? I feel a lot of emotion. Of course it was a very, very difficult Tour, both on the bike and off it. I’m so happy to be here in yellow. There were a few difficulties, a few extra stresses outside of the race but that’s cycling in 2015.”

He was first accused of cheating two years ago. This time it happened again, and on stage 14, a fan even threw a cup of urine at him, shouting “dope”. The image of cycling was heavily damaged by the Lance Armstrong doping scandal that saw the seven-time winner being stripped of his achievements. However, Froome always insisted that he was a “clean” rider.

Chris Froome is the first British rider to win the Tour de France twice. Stunning many experts of gambling facts, he became the first man to top both the overall competition and the mountain rankings in the same year since Eddy Merckx’s outstanding achievement in 1970.

However, Team Sky released the performance data of the 30-year-old, to counter the charges. Froome himself also stated several times that he was clean. After claiming his overall victory, he commented the accusations once again. He said, “The yellow jersey is very special. I will always respect it and never dishonour it. Someone needs to speak up for the cyclists. I’m happy to do that. Someone has to make a stand, the time is now.”

He added, “I want to thank my team-mates, without you I would not be standing here. I give you my utmost respect and gratitude. This is your yellow jersey as much as it is mine. Thank you to the support team at Team Sky – your support has got me through the tough times. Thank you to my wife Michelle – your love and support are my motivation.”

Europa League Qualifiers: Debrecen Bags Nine, West Ham Struggles

Jul 27, 2015

9 – 2! (Photo: Focimagazin)

Hungarian side Debrecen completed a club record 9-2 victory over Skonto Riga in the second leg of the second round in the Europa League qualifiers.

Debrecen were considered as top dogs against Skonto after their first leg fixture in the second round of the Europa League qualifiers. However, looking at their first respective match, nobody thought that the reverse fixture will bring Debrecen’s record European success. However, the Hungarian side dominated the Latvian outfit that is not used to the hot weather, bagging a goal in every ten minutes on average, nine in total.

While Loki thrashed Riga 9-2 and advanced with a 11-4 aggregate score, the West Ham United players were fighting for their lives in the Maltese heat. After winning the first leg in the last minutes in London, they conceded early against Birkirkara. Moreover, they went down to ten before half time, and they faced a long night. Only the penalties saved them eventually, as the WHU players scored all of their spot kicks, sending themselves to the next round.

UEFA.com: West Ham survive, Debrecen record, Nordic glee

 
Debrecen played a 2-2 in the first leg in Riga against Skonto in the second round of the Europa League qualifiers. That result made the Hungarian outfit favourite to advance, but not too many of those who are involved in UEFA Europa League betting would expect what would have come in the reverse fixture.

Tibor Tisza opened the scoring in the seventh minute, and Debrecen finished the game off in the first half with a 5-0 havoc in the Hungarian heat. That wasn’t enough for the home side however, and Loki stopped at nine goals eventually, while the visitors also had two for consolation. The 9-2 result that marks out from this week’s sports scores is the largest European win in Debrecen club history, while also the biggest loss for Skonto.

After the 11-4 aggregate victory, Debrecen will meet Rosenborg, one of the three Norwegian sides advancing to the third round, while West Ham United will face Astra Giurgiu. To set up the trip to Romania, the Hammers needed to survive 120 minutes plus penalty shootouts in Malta. Birkirkara, the home team scored the only goal of the game in the 15th minute, and WHU went down to ten in the first half. However, they were able to secure an advance in the Russian roulette.

The Guardian: Ten-man West Ham beat Birkirkara on penalties to stay in Europa League

 
West Ham United, playing the majority of the match with ten men, relied on a penalty shootout against Birkirkara. The Maltese side achieved a 1-0 through Fabrizio Miccoli’s goal on a humid and hot evening. Matching the result from the first leg of the second round in the Europa League qualifiers, extra time and then a shootout was needed to determine who to advance.

All five selected WHU players scored from the spot. The decisive penalty was sent home by Diego Poyet, the son Gustavo, the former Uruguayan international. Gus played for Chelsea and Tottenham, as many of those, who follow live sports results might remember.

The Hammers were down to ten in the first half, when James Tomkins, who scored the winner in the first leg, was sent off. He was the second WHU player who received a red card this year’s competition, after Diafra Sakho was sent off in the previous round. This is interesting, since the Hammers were qualified to the Europa League through their Fair Play ranking. The numbers were evened out when Birkirkara’s Mauricio Mazzetti was also red carded in overtime.

BBC.com: Europa League: We were better than Astra – Inverness

 
Astra Giurgiu eliminated Scottish Cup winners Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the second round of the Europa League qualifiers. Through this, they set up a meeting with West Ham United, however Inverness midfielder Greg Tansey thinks that the weaker side advanced from their respective fixture.

He said, “We look at them and there’s better sides in the Scottish Premiership. We more than held our own and I firmly believe we were the far better side.” However, Caley Thistle weren’t able to score a single goal during the two legs, and experts of gambling facts know, that such an unprolific display rarely results advancing.

Tansey added, “We gave everything, but we’re just lacking maybe that bit of killer edge in the final third and it’s something we need to get as quickly as possible. For the possession we had, I thought we could have done better. I thought over the two legs we were by far the better side in terms of ball possession.”

Chris Froome has been dominated the 2015 edition of the Tour de France so far. However, it seems that not all the crowd acknowledges his performance.

After doping charges appeared in the media in reaction to his outstanding climbing performance, a fan threw a cup full of urine at him. This might have seemed to be funny for the probably (or hopefully) drunk fan, but this was a disgusting act that shouldn’t be happen at such a prestigious event. International cycling’s governing body and Tour organizers, Amaury Sport Organisation – not so quickly, but finally – acted, releasing a statement that asks fans to respect yellow jersey.

Froome complained that urine was thrown at him while he was doing stage 14, after doping charges emerged in the media against him. Another Team Sky member, Richie Porte reported that he was punched in stage 10. The doping accusations appeared as Sky doing an excellent job at the 2015 Tour, as followers of live sports results might know. 30-year-old British rider, Froome led the competition by more than three minutes after stage 18.
Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO), organizer of the Tour de France released a joint statement. It said, “UCI President Brian Cookson and Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme ask crowds along the roadside to respect every rider, and the integrity of the riders and in particular the yellow jersey.”

Chris Froome, Team Sky’s 30-year-old rider led Nairo Quintana by 3 minutes and 10 seconds when the statement was issued, as many of those who follow sports scores might have known.
Froome was accused with doping by the media, and a fan thrown a cup of urine at him at stage 14. It was reported shortly after his teammate, Richie Porte claimed that he was punched by a fan on stage 10. Apart from asking fans to respect yellow jersey rider Froome, the UCI and Amaury Sports Organisation (ASO) joint statement also emphasizes that they regretted the incident the British rider was involved in.
It said, “The UCI and ASO publicly regretted the aggressions suffered by the leader of the overall classification from some spectators during the 14th stage between Rodez and Mende, while at the same time thanking the large majority of the public which respects the athletes.”

UCI, world’s cycling governing body had to release a statement, asking fans to respect yellow jersey and stop insulting drivers on the Tour.

The statement that was a joint issue with the Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO), Tour’s organizers said, “The peloton of the 102nd edition of the Tour de France enters a decisive phase of the race as it enters the Alps, where the riders require optimal conditions in order to perform to their best before arriving in Paris on Sunday.”
It continued, “UCI president Brian Cookson and Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme ask crowds along the roadside to respect every rider, and the integrity of the riders and in particular the yellow jersey.”

CONCACAF Gold Cup: Jamaica Upset US

Jul 23, 2015
CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinal Jamaica USA

Jamaica surprisingly eliminated hosts United States in the semis of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, to reach the final of the competition for the first time ever.
 
United States, the hosts of the CONCACAF Gold Cup were expected to face Mexico in the title decider of the competition. That is the default Gold Cup scenario, and since both sides were in the competition when it reached the semis, another USA vs Mexico final seemed inevitable. However, Jamaica came to the States upset the odds, and Winfried Schafer won the battle of the two German managers eventually.
The 65-year-old Schafer won the African Cup of Nations with Cameroon in 2002 and also reached the final of the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup. Jurgen Klinsmann, who is 15 years junior to him, took Germany to the third place in the 2006 FIFA World Cup, and won the CONCACAF Gold Cup two years ago. However this time he won’t have another opportunity to collect the Gold Cup, as Schafer outwitted him in the semifinal.

Jamaica were able to upset favourites United States in the semifinal of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, gambling news report. The Reggae Boyz will be the first side from the Caribbean to reach the final of Gold Cup. In the Philadelphia showdown they will face Mexico, who defeated Panama in the other semifinal.

The United States seemed to have the upper hand against Jamaica in the first half, however they were able to soak the pressure and found the net twice. Darren Mattocks and Giles Barnes were the Jamaican goal-scorers, and Michael Bradley pulled one back shortly after the break. However, this will appear only as a consolation goal in sports scores, as the USMNT wasn’t able to bag another one.
This is the first time since 2003 that the CONCACAF Gold Cup final won’t feature the United States. Jurgen Klinsmann’s men will play against Panama for the third place instead on Saturday, in Chester, PA.

The semifinal against Jamaica might be the toughest USMNT match during the reign of coach Jurgen Klinsmann. The Caribbean underdogs bagged two goals in a five-minute-long spell in the first half and that was enough for them to reach the final of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Experts of gambling facts might know that it never happened before that Jamaica was able to defeat the Yanks in the United States. It is their second win against the US overall, the previous one coming in 1988. The USMNT will play against the winner of the Gold Cup in October to determine who to represent the CONCACAF in the 2017 Confederations Cup that is due to be held in Russia.
Klinsmann was furious after the game. He said, “We had enough chances to put the game away. It’s not a nice pill to swallow.” His team almost came back after going down 2-0 in the first half, but they were able to convert only one of their chances, and they duly went out of the competition.

ESPNFC.com: United States eliminated from CONCACAF Gold Cup after Jamaica loss

 
Jamaica exploited the United States’ defensive wobbles to eliminate the hosts and to reach their first ever CONCACAF Gold Cup final. Centre backs John Brooks and Ventura Alvarado looked sloppy throughout the whole competition, though the USMNT was lucky to avoid goals coming from their mistakes until the semifinals.

Those two were responsible for the first Jamaican goal that was scored by Darren Mattocks. The second came after Brad Guzan’s mistake, who unintentionally handballed outside the penalty area. From the free kick Giles Barnes put the ball into the net and online mobile news reported at half time that Jamaica were ahead by two.
United States displayed some excellent passing game to open up the visitors’ defence, however there was always somebody to make a last man tackle and save Ryan Thompson from conceding a goal. Michael Bradley still scored one, but Winfried Schafer’s defensive tactics worked eventually. That might be as basic as putting bodies between the ball and their goal, and to try to catch the USMNT on the break or from sit-pieces, but the hosts weren’t able to deal with it.

Tyson Fury v Klitschko: Trash talk alert!

Jul 23, 2015
Tyson Fury v Klitschko press conference

Klitschko was more amused than intimidated (Photo: EPA)

The Tyson Fury v Klitschko title match is still months away, but it has already kicked off at the press conference.

Though Wladimir Klitschko is 1.22 (2/9) favorite against the British-Irish boxer at Bet365, Fury wants to break Klitschko’s face in their respective fight that is scheduled to 24 October. The two will clash in Dusseldorf for the heavyweight titles possessed by the Ukrainian. Klitschko has a 64-3 record with 53 knockout victories and with his last loss coming more than 10 years ago.

Tyson Fury, who is 4.50 (7/2) underdog at Bet365, has an immaculate record. He turned pro in 2008 and since then he recorded 24 victories, 18 of them being knockouts. It seems that the promo campaign for the bout in October will be fun to follow, as the 26-year-old started the fight with his mouth already.

BBC.com: Tyson Fury v Wladimir Klitschko: Briton wants rid of ‘boring’ boxer

 
British fighter Tyson Fury wants to break Klitschko’s face in their upcoming match, gambling news report. The 26-year-old considers Wladimir Klitschko as boring, and he said his opinion to the Ukrainian in person in a media session. Fury said, “You have about as much charisma as my underpants – zero. I’m interested in breaking your face in.”

Tyson Fury v Klitschko the belts

The 39-year-old Ukrainian suffered his last defeat in 2004 against Lamon Brewster. Klitschko possesses the belts of WBA, IBF and WBO. He prepares for his 28th heavyweight title match, which is a world record. Followers of gambling facts might know that this will be his 19th title defense in his second world champion spell. However, Fury thinks that this was it for Klitschko.

Fury said, “I’m interested in all of them belts you’ve got on there. I want to rid you out of the heavyweight division. You go on – you’re a sports psychologist, you speak 37 different languages, so what? You’re still a robotic person. You’re still not exciting and fun to watch. I am the new blood in the division, you are an old man.”

Klitschko had a fitting answer for the Briton. He said, “This guy is so entertaining. He sings, he dances, he is a cool dude. He does different things that people like – or hate. Some people adore you, some people say they can’t stand you, which is good.”

Independent.ie: ‘I’m interested in breaking your face in’ – Tyson Fury throws down gauntlet to Klitschko

 
Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko met in Dusseldorf, Germany to promote their fight that will be held in the city in October. Fury wants to break Klitschko’s face in, no less, as he considers the Ukrainian as a boring and uncharismatic fighter. Fury said, “It’s a personal mission for me to rid boxing of a boring person like you. Your jab-and-grab style – surely all of Europe wants to see you get beaten and all of Europe and the rest of the world will see you get beaten.”

Tyson Fury v Klitschko

Klitschko doesn’t believe his face will be smashed (Getty Images)

Fury considers himself Klitschko’s nemesis. He expressed, “I believe he has never faced a challenge like me ever before and I don’t think he will face a challenge like me again.” Followers of live sports results might have noticed that he doesn’t have self-assurance issues it seems. He added, “I’m a unique fighter, one of a kind, there’s never been someone like me before in history. A fighter like me only comes around every 1,000 years.”

Klitschko said that he was a fan of the Briton, and he thinks that Fury could really challenge him in their upcoming fight. He said, “I believe Tyson Fury is really meaning what he is talking about and he is definitely not coming here on October 24 just to be present and be on the canvas. No, he came here to win the championship fight.”

Dailymail.co.uk: Tyson Fury promises to smash Wladimir Klitschko’s face and says Ukrainian has ‘as much charisma as my underpants’

 
Wladimir Klitschko prepares for his 28th heavyweight title bout, this time against Tyson Fury, as many sports scores fans might know. That would be a world record with Klitschko overtaking Joe Louis. The legendary American fighter currently holds the record together with the Ukrainian. However, the Irishman slammed the Ukrainian’s statistics in a Dusseldorf press conference where the two were promoting the upcoming Tyson Fury v Klitschko match.

Tyson Fury v Klitschko not amused

“Save it, kid, that pikey talk will not work on me” (Photo: EPA)

The Briton said, “Are you greater than Louis, Ali, Frazier, Holmes? I think not. You’ve just fought bums well selected for you by your management.” Fury, who sometimes underlined his statements with swearing, considers himself “an American-style fighter with European fitness”. Fury wants to break Klitschko’s face in, as he confirmed, adding that he didn’t care about anybody’s opinion of what he said as he didn’t consider himself a role model.

Fury, who kept on abusing Klitschko, also spoke about the size differences, him standing 6 feet 9 inches, three inches taller than Klitschko. He said, “When I look at you I’m not feared. I don’t even see a big man because you’re not only shorter than me but you’re light for a modern heavyweight. You look old even though I think you’ve had botox. Jab-and-grab won’t be enough against me.”

Champions League Qualifiers 2nd legs

Jul 21, 2015
Stjarnan Celtic Champions league qualifiers

There is no doubt who is the favorite of the second leg of Stjarnan and Celtic’s duel (espn)

The reverse fixtures in the second round of the UEFA Champions League qualifiers are scheduled to this week.
 
Wednesday brings some interesting matches for those, who like to bet on live sports results.
Though Lech Poznan fans might be terrified looking at Sarajevo’s results from last year, it would be surprising if the Poles would be unable to force their way to the next round. Celtic are also favourites against Stjarnan from Iceland. The biggest issue of the Scots expected to be the artificial grass, which might prevent them from fluid play. A galore of goals is not expected from them, but their advance looks safe.The New Saints will have quite a task against the Hungarian champions. Videoton has a 1-0 lead from the first leg, they play at home and will feature all of their foreign players who had visa problems last week. Dundalk will have a chance to upset BATE, so if you fancy football surprises, the Irish might provide you one.

UEFA.com: Guide to the Champions League second legs

 
Michael Wilde leads New Saints’ all-time scoring chart in the Welsh Premier League. As some of those, who follow sports scores in the UK might know, he was also top scorer in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers after the first three games. He bagged his three goals against B36 Tórshavn, however TNS might use another couple to overcome a 1-0 deficit against Videoton in Hungary in the second leg of the second qualifying round.

The New Saints visit to Hungary in a difficult position

Dundalk is looking for an upset against BATE Borisov. The Irish champions registered a 2-1 away defeat in the first leg in Belarus. David McMillan scored Dundalk’s precious away goal then, and the forward sees a chance for overturning the fixture. He said, “They won’t fancy coming to Oriel Park. We are confident now.” He added, “It was important that we didn’t concede late in the game the other night. A lot of Irish teams would have done that in the past.”

Sarajevo is travelling to Poland with a two-goal deficit to take on Lech Poznan. As the Bosnians were able to register two 3-1 away wins twelve months ago, they might have a shot at advancing this year too. Midfielder Samir Radovac said, “Last season we played better as guests. Let’s hope that’s the case this season too,” gambling news report.

Kazakhstani champions Astana have to overcome only one goal against Maribor at home. The hosts’ line-up will expectedly feature goalkeeper Nenad Eric, who was out in Slovenia last week due to injury. Manager Stanimir Stoilov said, “We need to act wisely and we need the support of the crowd until the very last second.” He added, “Though the first-leg of The Champions League qualifiers result leaves us in a very difficult situation, we played a good game in Maribor and the lads did well.”

Goal.com: Stjarnan – Celtic Preview: Scots hope to avoid slip-up on plastic pitch

 
Celtic won the first leg in the second round of the UEFA Champions League qualifiers against Stjarnan. Ronny Deila’s team is obviously favourite to advance against the champions of Iceland. However, they have to perform well on an artificial playing surface at Stjornuvollur, which will be strange for the Bhoys.

Stjarnan got a lot of criticism for the quality of their turf last year from Motherwell manager Stuart McCall. The Icelanders were able to eliminate the Scottish side in the Europa League qualifiers last summer. Celtic players are in a cheerful mood though, after beating Spanish outfit Eibar 4-1 in a preseason friendly at the weekend, online mobile news report.

Dundalk  BATE Borisov Champions League Qualifiers

Leigh Griffiths, who missed a penalty against Stjarnan last week, scored three against Eibar. He said, “It [the Eibar game] was a good test for us going into Wednesday night. We got the win last Wednesday, but I don’t think we played as well as we could have and we showed against Eibar what we’re all about. I got 90 minutes so I’m feeling sharp, but it’s a different kettle of fish on Wednesday night with the Champions League Qualifiers.”

Meanwhile Stjarnan struggles in Urvalsdeild, the Icelandic top tier, being 10 points behind leaders KR. Manager Runar Pall Sigmundsson thinks that the bad conversion of chances is the main reason of his team underperforming. He said, “We have been dominating games, but we are not taking our chances and it ends up costing us. We have to improve in future games, starting against Celtic.”

Man United want Muller, Bayern Don’t Sell

Jul 21, 2015
Man United want Muller Manchester World Cup

Is Muller worth €100 million? Bayern say he’s priceless (GettyImages)

The shocking news about Man United Bid for Muller is the latest high-profile transfer story in the German media, though Bayern turned down the offer.

The news about Man United Bid for Muller might be shocking at first, but mainly because of the fee that the Red Devils reportedly offered for the German forward. It might be strange to burn that amount of money on such an unspectacular player. However, Thomas Muller is a special football talent. His intelligence, positioning and reading of the game provides many goal scoring opportunities for himself and for his teammates as well.

Louis van Gaal claimed that he planned to go with a 4-3-3 formation next season. Muller is the ultimate addition to that, as he perfectly fits to a lopsided three-man forward line. He also contributes greatly to his team through is work rate and fitness. He might be far from any Brazilian forward regarding ball skills, but he is far more effective than most of them by always taking up the proper position. The reported EUR 100 million might be still a crazy amount for him, but if he can help United to the title, he might worth it for Van Gaal.

The Guardian: Manchester United target Thomas Müller but Bayern Munich stand firm

Bayern Munich don’t want to transfer another player to Old Trafford. However, as gambling news report that Man United want Muller, it is understood that the German international fancies an opportunity in Louis van Gaal’s squad. Manchester United are allegedly ready to spend more than EUR 80 million on the intelligent forward.

Thomas Muller would reportedly get EUR 20 million per year in Manchester. That equals a GBP 265,000 weekly salary, which is twice as much as the player receives from Bayern. Van Gaal prepares his team in a 4-3-3 for next season. The 25-year-old, who has a good understanding of the game, would be a useful addition to that system.

Though the Bavarians rate the World Cup winning player highly, Pep Guardiola might be not that convinced about his qualities. Keen followers of sports scores might remember that the Catalan manager left out Muller last season, stunning the supporters. The two were also involved in a training ground rift recently. These facts might help Muller to get away from his beloved club.

uk.eurosport.yahoo.com: Premier League – Manchester United ‘make €100m bid for Thomas Muller’

Louis van Gaal mysteriously mentioned a shock move for an attacker recently. According to reports emerged from the German media, Man United want Muller to join them. The story also has that Bayern rejected an initial EUR 82 million offer. That was reportedly followed by an increased bid of EUR 100 million, only to be turned down by club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge personally.

Man United want Muller Bayern don't sell

Rummennigge adamant: Muller worth more to them than any money offered (bayernnews.org)

Thomas Muller plays for Bayern since 2000, making his debut for the first team in 2008. The 25-year-old was built in the Bayern team by Louis van Gaal. Since then he collected four Bundesliga titles and won the Champions League too. With Germany, he won the World Cup last year, having scored five goals throughout the tournament, equaling his tally from 2010, as followers of gambling facts might know.

Though the second bid might be no more than media speculation, it is clear that Muller would be a wonderful signing for Manchester United. The forward is regularly praised for his intelligent positioning, creativity and his productivity. He is also able to do an outstanding job in different roles either in the forward line or in midfield.

Manchester United acquired the services of midfield maestro Bastian Schweinsteiger recently. It seems that Louis van Gaal needs more German talent in his squad, as Man United want Muller as well, according to online mobile news.

The Red Devils reportedly offered EUR 82 million for the forward, but Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge stated that the club will not sell another one of his top assets for Manchester United. Rummenigge also warned the entire German football.

He said, “The Bundesliga has to finally act. The English are overtaking us left, right and centre. When taking into account transfer market activity, in marketing terms, in TV money – anywhere, really.”

He added, “The Bundesliga has to be careful not to fall further behind, I think. Anyone who follows the transfer market at the moment, within which English clubs work, knows their clubs are being fully upgraded. The Bundesliga has to be careful that we’re not emptied out.”

Tragically, as the inquiry found out, Bianchi was unable to slow down his Marussia, before he left the track. The 25-year-old Frenchman was in coma for nine months before he died in his hometown, Nice on Friday night. He is the first F1 driver to pass away due to injuries sustained in a Formula One car since the great Ayrton Senna died in 1994.

However, Jules Bianchi’s death still shocked the people around motorsports. He passed away on Friday in his hometown, Nice after being in coma for nine months.

The Grand Prix Driver’s Association released a statement about the fight for safety, which never should be over.

Despite considerable improvements, we, the grand prix drivers, owe it to the racing community, to the lost ones and to Jules, his family and friends, to never relent in improving safety.”

SkySports.com: Formula 1 is safe despite Jules Bianchi’s death, says Bernie Ecclestone

Bianchi suffered an accident at the Japanese Grand Prix in October, 2014. He was in coma for nine months before he died in his hometown. “First he was a very, very, very nice person” Ecclestone commented the sad news. “Secondly, he was very talented, so it’s a great loss, a loss to the sport and obviously a big loss to his parents.”

Ecclestone then added that Jules Bianchi’s death was the consequence of an extremely unfortunate incident, as he hit a truck that was deployed inside the crash barriers to extract Adrian Sutil’s car. He still considers F1 safe. He said, “Formula 1 is safe now, the cars are super safe, the circuit is safe, everything is good, as I say, if that truck hadn’t have been there it wouldn’t have happened.”

Motorsport.com: F1 must never get complacent over safety – Prost

Four-times Formula One world champion Alain Prost revealed that he thinks F1 should never be satisfied with their safety efforts after his fellow Frenchman Jules Bianchi’s death. Bianchi hit a tractor that was on the side of the track to pull out a crashed car without the safety car being deployed. As a result of the accident, F1 adopted the virtual safety car system, as keen followers of live sports results might remember.

Prost said, “I just think there was a small misjudgment that cost very dearly. There was an accident, pouring rain and appalling visibility. There should have been a safety car to slow the race down before the recovery truck went on track – that’s the misjudgment.”

He added “They have done a lot for safety. We had not had a fatal crash in F1 for 21 years, it means that a lot of work was done. But like everywhere, there’s always a little bit more to be done. The only thing that still was to be done for safety was about this recovery truck that goes on the circuit.”

German GP Can Only Be Saved by a Sold Out 2016 Race

Jul 17, 2015
1966 German GP

The German GP is one of the oldest in F1 history. Lorenzo Bandini in a Ferrari at the 1966 GP.

Though the German GP is expected to return next year after it was included to the 2016 Formula One calendar, its future is not safe at all.

The 2015 German GP was originally scheduled to this weekend. However as the Nurburgring and the Hockenheimring both struggle financially, the event was dropped from this year’s Formula One calendar. Since Stirling Moss won the 1961 race in a Lotus-Climax at the 22-kilometer-long Nurbugring Nordschleife, no year passed without Germany hosting a Formula One Grand Prix.

Though Formula One was done with the Nordschleife after Niki Lauda’s horrible accident in 1976, it was always either the Nurburgring Sudschleife or the Hockenheimring that hosted the event since 1961. With the Nurbugring being pulled out this year, possibly for good, the future of the German GP lies at Hockenheim. But first of all, a sold out race is a must for 2016.

SkySports.com: German GP not out of the woods yet, warns Hockenheim chief

A sold out 2016 Grand Prix in Hockenheim might save the future of Formula One in Germany. The track is also prepared to hold the 2017 German GP if needed, gambling news report. To secure a long term future for the race in Germany, it is necessary to attract the fans in numbers.

The 2015 German GP was scheduled to this weekend initially before it was cancelled in March, as keen followers of live sports results might remember. The Nurburgring would have hosted this year’s event originally, however the leaders of the circuit were unable to reach an agreement with Bernie Ecclestone.

To step in for 2015 wouldn’t be a profitable move for Hockenheim. However the venue had no problem with the 2016 German GP. So that the event was scheduled to the recently issued provisional 2016 calendar, that includes as much as 21 races. If everything goes according to plans, next year’s season would be the longest ever in Formula One history.

Crash.net: German GP survival hinges on 2016 ‘full house’

Hockenheimring executives stated that a sold out 2016 German GP is a must for keeping the event in the Formula One calendar for long. The German Grand Prix was scheduled for 2016 but that doesn’t guarantee that the series will return to the country in the future beyond next year.

It never happened since 1960 that the German GP was left out from the F1 calendar, as many of those who follow sports scores might know. This year however Nurbugring pulled out because of financial problems in March. Then it was too late to strike a lucrative deal with Hockenheim, and the 2015 German Grand Prix was dropped.

The event was already under threat in the past years. Sebastian Vettel might have dominated the series, but home supporters just weren’t interested. Only 50,000 supporters were watching Nico Rosberg claiming his home victory in a Mercedes last year. Now it seems that the 2016 German GP will be held at Hockenheim, but nothing else is a certainty.

Pitpass.com: 2016 event will decide future of F1 in Germany

Though Mercedes was there to help out the organizers, no deal was agreed in March. This meant that the German GP was dropped from the 2015 Formula One calendar after it was alternated between Nurburgring and Hockenheim for years.

Georg Seiler, Hockenheimring’s managing director expressed that the future of the German GP is up to the 2016 event. According to experts only a sold out event can keep Germany in the F1 calendar. Seiler said, “We need a well filled house next year so that Formula One has a future. We must tell the fans: come to the race next year and secure the future of F1 at Hockenheim.”

He added, “It is very sad because Formula One is an image carrier all over the world. For other countries it is part of their tourism promotion, money comes from other areas and they can stage the races without problems.”

Rivaldo and Son Rivaldinho Score in the Same Match

Jul 16, 2015
Rivaldo and Son Rivaldinho

The 43-year old world champion came out of retirement to play for Mogi Mirim (EuroSport)

Rivaldo and son, 20-year-old Rivaldinho played together for Mogi Mirim last year. That is the club where Rivaldo jump-started his career in the early nineties.

And that is the club where he became club president in 2008. He also returned as a player twice for them. However he decided to finish his playing career recently. But it was tough for him, as Mogi Mirim struggled.

After a while Rivaldo returned to the team that was on the bottom of the Brazilian Serie B table. Since then, they are unbeaten in two games. Moreover, Rivaldo and son both scored against Macae most recently. The World Cup winner contributed to all of his team’s three goals. He scored one himself and his son bagged a brace. Some sort of football history was written there.

The Guardian: Former Brazil star Rivaldo and his son both score in same league match

Mogi Mirim club president Rivaldo and son, Rivaldinho both play for the Brazilian Serie B outfit. Against Macae both of them got on the scoresheet in a 3-1 victory, as keen followers of live sports results might know.

Rivaldo, who is 43-year-old, retired before. However he has reactivated himself to help his struggling team. Mogi Mirim are unbeaten since Rivaldo’s return two games ago. They also moved from the bottom of the table, gambling news report.

Rivaldo and son

Everybody has the best memories about playing football with Dad..

The World Cup winner was playing for Barcelona at the peak of his career. Now he spent 50 minutes on the pitch to get involved in all three of his team’s goals. He contributed to his son’s diving header with a key pass in the build-up as early as the third minute.

Rivaldo and son, Rivaldinho then scored two more. The former world class player found the net from the spot in the 17th minute. Then Rivaldinho converted a one-on-one towards half-time. A late Macae comfort came from Pipico in the 81st minute then. Rivaldo said after the match that he was “grateful and happy”.

BBC.com: Rivaldo: World Cup winner and son score in same Brazilian match

A Brazilian second-tier game saw Rivaldo and son, Rivaldinho scoring both. Like fathers, like sons. The World Cup winner contributed to all of Mogi Mirim’s goals. Rivaldo is also club president there. He decided to come out from a short retirement recently to help his team.

Rivaldo set up the assist before his son’s header with a key pass in the third minute. Then he scored from a penalty, before his son registered the third. Many of those who follow sports scores might remember famous father and son moments. There was Briand and Nigel Clough, Cesare and Paolo Maldini, but none of them played together.

Rivaldo and son, van der Sar, Zidane, Kluivert

Rivaldo and son Rivaldinho are far from singular with the family tradition (Brunch News)

The 17-year-old Eidur Gudjohnsen replaced his father, Arnor, 34 then, in an Iceland international game in 1996. They weren’t together on the pitch though like Rivaldo and son. Ian Bowyer and his son, Gary represented Hereford United together in the 1989-1990 season. The same goes for Alec Herd and his son, David, who played together for Stockport County in the 1950s.

ESPNFC.com: Rivaldo and son Rivaldinho keep it in the family in Brazil second division

The Rivaldo moment that many gambling blog readers recall first, would be his overhead kick for Barcelona. Then maybe his brace against Denmark at the FIFA 1998 World Cup. Only until the Mogi Mirim match, where Rivaldo and son, Rivaldinho scored both in the Brazilian Serie B.

Rivaldo played for Mogi Mirim in the early nineties, before making himself a name in Europe. Now he is trying to help them as club president, and after a short retirement, once again as a player. Rivaldo and son already played together last year for Mogi Mirim. However this is the first time that both of them scored.

No slacking the practice when Dad is there to see.. (Gazeta Press)

At the peak of his career, Rivaldo was elected World Player of the Year. Now he is 43, and acting as Mogi Mirim president since 2008. He was an active player until 2014, but then he opted to retire. However that was cut short. He couldn’t watch his team struggling from the terraces. He came back to play and Rivaldo and son wrote history together.

46-0 Record Defeat Might Help Recognize Micronesia by FIFA

Jul 15, 2015
46-0 record defeat of Micronesia

The 46-0 record defeat definitely put Micronesia on the football map. 

The Micronesia national football team made the news all over the world.

Their 46-0 record defeat was shown or mentioned in sports news everywhere. They are doomed to failure without the support of the international football federation. Development and the spreading of grassroots football are virtually impossible without help from the FIFA.Micronesia applied for a FIFA membership before, but the organization did not incorporate them yet. Now they hope that the 46-0 record defeat might raise the attention of FIFA. There is also a petition that calls FIFA to embrace the Micronesia national football team. Once they joined, Micronesia will apply for a membership in the Asian Football Confederation.

Celebcafe.org: Micronesia suffer third record defeat as they lose 46-0 to Vanuatu

After the 38-0 rout against Fiji and the 30-0 loss against Tahiti, Vanuatu handed a 46-0 record defeat for Micronesia. The latter result hardly shocked any of those, who follow gambling blogs. This means that the Federated States of Micronesia finished the group stages of the Pacific games with a 0-114 aggregate scoreline.

46-0 record defeat from Vanuatu

Stan Foster, the coach of the Micronesia national football team said, he expected the hammerings, gambling news report. However, he thinks the attention they brought might help them to get some assistance. He also revealed, that to appear in the FIFA world rankings would mean a huge boost for them.

The record margin in an international football game was 31-0 until recently. Australia thrashed Samoa in 2001 by that scoreline. But then Micronesia took the field against Fiji. And then against Vanuatu, and history was rewritten with a 46-0 record defeat. All this happened in an Olympic qualifying tournament, so the young squad of Micronesia could be together for a long time.

The Guardian: Micronesia appear on Fifa’s radar after massive Pacific Games defeats

The Micronesia national football team is planning to join the Asian Football Confederation. Just after they registered a 46-0 record defeat against Vanuatu, they are preparing to compete against teams like Australia, Japan or South Korea. To make this step though, they will need FIFA recognition first.

The Federated States of Micronesia have been applying for a FIFA membership for long. However, international football’s governing body refused to embrace them. This might change as their 46-0 record defeat against Vanuatu was all over the sports scores news. Micronesia’s Aussie coach Stan Foster hopes the defeats might raise the attention of FIFA.

He said, “Even though [these defeats] have been bad publicity in the way of scores, I’m hoping that there’ll be a sympathetic ear because of that by FIFA. And with [FIFA affiliation] comes technical advisors, maybe coaches that will be stationed either semi-permanently or permanently on each of the three main islands that are encouraging grassroots soccer.”

Gulfnews.com: Micronesia hope thrashings lead to Fifa recognition

With the 30-0 loss against Tahiti, the 38-0 thrashing against Fiji and the 46-0 record defeat against Vanuatu, Micronesia made the news everywhere around the world. They 0-114 total after the group stages of the Pacific games is a remarkable thing for sure. And there are some people, who can still see the positives after hammerings like the 46-0 record defeat.

They didn’t arrive with high hopes, circumstances didn’t help, but there’s a first time for everything, and now the change might start (Photo: foxsports.com.au)

Paul Watson is one of those. The British coach managed Pohnpei, which is one of the islands of Micronesia. He worked there from 2009 to 2010. As Micronesia is not a FIFA member, they can’t participate in major tournaments. They aren’t eligible for funding. Yet, this might change now. There is a petition towards FIFA to embrace the islands. Many followers of live sports results have signed it already.

Watson said, “The fact Micronesia was even at the Pacific Games was a near miracle and owed so much to years of hard work from the country’s unpaid coaches, players and administrators. Micronesia was the only nation at the Games not to receive any development funding from FIFA.”

Djokovic wins Wimbledon 2015 Final

Jul 13, 2015
Wimbledon 2015 final Djokovic

Roger Federer lost in four sets against Novak Djokovic in a vastly interesting and thrilling gentlemen’s singles final of the 2015 Wimbledon Championships.
 

A fitting match closed the men’s singles event of the Wimbledon 2015 final, as the world’s two best players met at the Centre Court of the All England Club. Though Roger Federer played as good as ever in the tournament, Novak Djokovic won the first set of the title decider in a tie-break. The second set brought the best tie-break in Wimbledon in 35 years, as Federer outlasted seven Djokovic set points to equalize. The momentum seemed to be on Federer’s side after that, however Djokovic was able to shape up, and he came back stronger. The rain caused a short stoppage in the third set, and after the players returned, it was virtually no question that the Serb will wrap up the match eventually.

The Guardian: Wimbledon 2015 final: Novak Djokovic ends era of Big Four to stand alone

 

After Novak Djokovic won the Wimbledon 2015 final of the men’s singles event, an era is considered to be over. There is no more the domination of the big four of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. Djokovic is clearly the best of the world and he is ahead of the others.

By beating Roger Federer in London, Djokovic captured his third Wimbledon title, and his ninth Grand Slam title overall. The Serb would have retained the leading spot in the ATP ranking even if he went down against Federer in the Sunday final anyway, however, by conquering the Centre Court once again, he made a statement, pointing out to followers of sports scores that he is the undisputable number one at the moment.

Djokovic demonstrated that when he is in top form, no one is able to overcome him. Even Federer, who is in way better shape than he was in the last couple of years, was unable to beat the Serb though they were playing in Wimbledon Centre Court, which is considered as the Swiss’ own house, where he won a record seven titles.

The Telegraph: Wimbledon 2015 final: Novak Djokovic beats Roger Federer to capture his third title

 

At the end of an interesting and exciting Wimbledon tournament, the best player in the world picked up the title both in the gentlemen’s and in the ladies’ singles competition. After Serena Williams won on Saturday, Novak Djokovic was also able to top his own field in a tight game against Roger Federer.

The match also included an instant classic tie-break at the end of the second set. According to pundits and keen followers of live sports results, the Wimbledon 2015 final was the best in that regard since the legendary final between Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe in 1980. Federer was able to avoid seven Djokovic set points, to win it by 12-10.

Djokovic became really upset only once during the final, and if he will reach a point, where he will be able to handle the biggest matches without such explosions, he might be simply unbeatable. Yet, he overcame this episode, and wrapped up the game as only he can, to win his third Wimbledon title.

The New York Times: Roger Federer’s Loss at Wimbledon Is Disappointing, but Not Devastating

 

Roger Federer lost the 2015 Wimbledon final 7-6, 6-7, 6-4,6-3 against Novak Djokovic on Sunday. Though, enjoying his fine shape recently he clearly came to win the tournament, he was quite upbeat after the defeat against world’s number one, gambling news report.

Federer said, “I still think I had a great tournament. You can have good tournaments without winning as well at the end. I still won six matches and lost one. The ratio still remains very good. But of course, you walk away empty-handed.” He added, “I’m right there. My game is good. I got broken very few times this tournament. I played on my terms. Things are all right.”

Federer is 33, which is an age when most tennis players have retired already. However the Swiss continues his career and he just reinforced his status as world’s number 2 with his performance and his achievement, collecting the runners-up trophy in Southwest London.

Gasquet Defeated Wawrinka through Serve and Volley at Wimbledon

Jul 09, 2015
Wimbledon Gastquet Wawrinka

It was all won beside the Wimbledon net: Gastquet’s serve and volley assault left Wawrinka nothing but to congratulate him (Photo: Reuters)

Richard Gasquet eliminated Stan Wawrinka to join Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic in the 2015 Wimbledon semifinals.  

The Men’s Singles event at the 2015 Wimbledon Championships saw small renaissance of the serving and volleying approach so far, and this helped Richard Gasquet to turn the game over in the fifth set against Stanislas Wawrinka, when it looked that the momentum was on the Swiss’ side. Seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer wins serve-and-volley points more often than ever since the 2003 tournament at the All England Club. Both of them will meet baseline players in the semis, probably the two best tennis players in the world currently in that regard, and this means that there are some exciting matches ahead of us. Especially the Federer vs Murray semi, that will be something like an early final.

ESPN: Richard Gasquet joins top three seeds in Wimbledon semifinals

 

It was smooth sailing for world number 1, 2 and 3 – all former Wimbledon Champions – to reach the semifinals, however reigning Roland Garros champion and no. 4 Stanislas Wawrinka met Richard Gasquet, and the Frenchman stopped him in a five-set thriller, online gambling news report.

As keen followers of sports scores might know, it would be the first time in 20 years that the top ranked quartet played in the semifinals in Southwest London, however world number 21 Gasquet intervened beating Wawrinka 6-4, 4-6, 3-6, 6-4, 11-9. The Frenchman had the opportunity to seal the match earlier, when he served for the semifinal at 5-3 in the fifth set.
“The last game was incredible,” Gasquet said after the game. “I kept fighting a lot. And I did it. It’s a great match for me. It would be difficult for me to lose that one after [leading] 5-3.” He reached his first Wimbledon semifinal since 2007, and will play against world no. 1 Novak Djokovic.

The Guardian: Wimbledon 2015: Andy Murray banks on home support against Roger Federer

 

Andy Murray faced Roger Federer for the last time at Wimbledon in 2012. In that year they actually met twice at the All England Club, deciding both the Grand Slam and the Olympic finals between each other, as many gamblers who follow live sports results might remember.

Three years ago Federer won the Wimbledon Championships – his last Grand Slam title to date. Murray was able to beat him at the Summer Olympics. Looking at his current form and the possible support of the home fans, the Scot is considered as the favourite to advance this time by online sportsbooks in the EU.
World number two Federer eliminated Gilles Simon in little more than one and a half an hour in the quarterfinals, while no. 3 Murray needed a bit more than two hours to put Vasek Pospisil aside. The Scot hopes that the spectators will support him in the semi, though he knows that Federer is the topmost favourite of tennis fans all around the world, including London.

NYTimes.com: A Revived Approach: The Serve and Volley

 

Once upon a time serving and volleying was the ultimate rule for Wimbledon, as virtually every player approached the net to settle things as soon as possible. Tennis has changed however, but serving and volleying didn’t disappear for good. The real gamblers of the game use it again, and use it more often than ever since 2007.

According to gambling facts, serve-and-volley points per match are at 10.4 percent in this year’s Men’s Singles tournament at the Wimbledon Championships. For last year it was only 8 percent, but those players, who accepted that by approaching the net, they will clearly lose some points, however the odds will favor them on the long, are quite successful through the approach.
Roger Federer marched to the semifinals easily with his newly found game – he did not win so many serve-and-volley points since 2003, when he abandoned this approach – and Richard Gasquet was able to turn over the fifth set in his quarter-final against Stan Wawrinka via serving and volleying when things started to go to his opponent’s favor.

LA Galaxy give Steven Gerrard His Old Jersey Number

Jul 08, 2015

With some help Gerrard can retain his old jersey number in the LA Galaxy (Photo: FOX Sports)

 
Though Steven Gerrard left Liverpool for the LA Galaxy after 17 years, he was able to retain his famous jersey number.
 

He wore the Eight while playing for the Reds, as he was presented with the no. 8 shirt by Los Angeles Galaxy. His new club introduced the former England international to the media on Tuesday, and he will make his debut for Galaxy on this weekend against a Mexican side. His first Major League Soccer game is also coming next week, so it is no surprise that Gerrard compared his first days at his new employer in California to a whirlwind. By moving to Los Angeles, Gerrard followed a path that was paved by his former England teammate David Beckham, who spent five years at Galaxy.

Gerrard said, “David is a hero of mine, a fantastic guy, a wonderful footballer, certainly someone I leaned on for advice before I decided to come here.” At Galaxy, Stevie G will team up with Robbie Keane, who spent half a season with Gerrard at Liverpool in 2008-2009, as followers of live sports results might remember.
For Gerrard it was important to meet Keane, who solved his new teammate’s first big problem, online gambling news report. Gerrard said, “It was very nice to have Robbie around, he introduced me to the players and he also lent me some factor 50 as well so I didn’t burn. It felt like I was coming to a new school but thanks to my team-mates for making me feel welcome.”

Gerrard said, “First and foremost I’d like to thank the club for getting me here. The club and [head coach] Bruce [Arena] were very aggressive in making me come here and I’m very excited to be here.” Gerrard is not the first player who arrives from Liverpool to LA, as US legend Landon Donovan spent two loan spells at Everton while representing Galaxy.

He spoke about the former US international to the media. He said, “Landon, who I played against at Everton, he was the enemy for short periods of time and who I’m sure I’ll bump into around the place and it’ll be good to bounce some feedback off him as well – he’s a legend here, he’s a hero.”

I have had a bit of jet-lag, but now I am very excited. There will be a few minor stops and starts, but I am now looking to fire from the off.”
Gerrard also spoke about the upcoming game. He said, “I’m very excited to be here. The game on Saturday can’t come quick enough. The level is very good here and I am here to help the other players. It is not much difference from Liverpool and it is time for me to do my talking on the pitch.”

Roger Federer Is Back to His Best at Wimbledon

Jul 07, 2015

Caroline Wozniacki thinks that those who arrange tennis schedules in Wimbledon, tend to prefer male players to female colleagues, as women have hardly any opportunity to show themselves on the Centre Court. After he crashed out on a smaller court, the major venue saw a Roger Federer, who looked ten years younger than his actual age, taking Roberto Bautista Agut apart at ease. The Swiss, who is on his way to his record eight Wimbledon title, might have terrified his rivals with that outstanding performance. The second week also saw another special moment, when the Williams sisters faced each other on the Centre Court.

 

The Guardian: Caroline Wozniacki accuses Wimbledon of a bias to men on show courts

 

Danish professional tennis player Carolin Wozniacki accused the Wimbledon organizers with some sort of sexism as he thinks that female players don’t get as much playing time at the major courts like their male colleagues. Wozniacki slapped the Wimbledon directors after she crashed out in the round of 16.

The 6-4, 6-4 loss against Garbiñe Muguruza was the fifth exit from the tournament at that stage in Wozniacki’s career, as she never reached the quarter-finals in Southwest London. She suggested angrily that women tennis players should get exactly the number of matches on the show courts like men do, gambling news report.

She said, “I would love to play on a big court. I think that’s what it’s all about; you work hard and practice to play on the big courts. The women really haven’t gotten the opportunity here to play on the big courts. You only get one women’s match on Court One and Centre Court.”

 

BBC.com: Wimbledon 2015: Roger Federer breezes into quarter-finals

 

Swiss icon Roger Federer was on fire against Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut in the round of 16 at the Wimbledon Championships. Federer displayed top class tennis as he dispatched Bautista Agut 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 to reach the quarter-final where he will meet France’s Gilles Simon, online gambling news report.

The seven-time Wimbledon champion holds the record of the most Grand Slam wins in London together with Pete Sampras and Willie Renshaw. He said after the match, “I don’t think I made a statement. I did a nice job making the transition. It was a good match. I got off to a good start and kept rolling. Obviously maybe Roberto wasn’t at his very best.”

Butista Agut had no answer for the wide range of shots Federer used in their respective match. It seems that the Swiss is back to his best days, though keen followers of live sports results might have noticed that he also uses a serve-and-volley game under the coaching of Stefan Edberg. The Spaniard suffered an ankle injury in the third set, but he finished the match after a quick medical treatment.

 

NYTimes.com: Serena and Venus Williams Are Siblings Forever, but Rivals for Not Much Longer

 

American tennis superstar Serena Williams defeated her older sister in the fourth round of the Wimbledon Championships. She said after the game, “It definitely doesn’t get easier. But today I was out there, and I thought: ‘Wow. I’m 33, and she just turned 35. I don’t know how many more moments like this we’ll have.’ ”

Serena Williams expressed that she wanted to keep on playing for a few years, but maybe that was the last time she had the opportunity to play against her sister on the Wimbledon Centre Court, where each of them won five singles titles. She added, “I just wanted to take the moment in. I remember when we were 8 years old. We dreamed of these moments. It was kind of surreal there.”

Actually, Venus was who paved the way for her younger sister, as followers of sports scores might remember, since she was who first won a Grand Slam title for the Williams family, and she was the first who reached number one in the WTA rankings.

Chile Wins First Title as Argentina Becoming Football’s Losers

Jul 06, 2015
copa america final 2015

Another final, another defeat for Argentina. This time an awkward and sour one, especially for Lionel Messi, who had a quiet game against the tight-marking Chile defense, and whose family, online gambling news report, was abused by the overwhelmed Chile fans in Estadio Nacional.As the sides were unable to find the back of the nets, the game went to penalties, and Alexis Sanxhez, who missed his spot-kick against Brazil a year ago that saw Chile crashing out from the World Cup in the round of 16, stepped up to score with a half-Panenka. Through that, the ex-Barcelona forward, who led Arsenal’s frontline last season, helped Chile to their first trophy 99 years after La Roja participated in the inaugural edition of the Copa America.

The Guardian: Hosts Chile stun Argentina to claim first Copa América title on penalties

Chile waited 99 years for this, and in the end it came down to Alexis Sanchez, who had to score the decisive penalty in the shootout against Argentina in the 2015 Copa America final. Sanchez went for a Panenka, and though he failed to perform the trick-shot perfectly, he scored anyway as Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero threw his body towards the left post.

Gonzalo Higuain and Ever Banega failed to score from 12 yards previously, which meant that Chile won its first ever Copa America title, 99 years after they participated in the first edition of the tournament alongside Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay. Meanwhile Argentina lost another final and it is now 22 years for them without any trophy, as experts of gambling facts might know it.

This wonderful generation that produced players like Lionel Messi, Javier Mascherano or Sergio Aguero might end their careers without any trophies at international level eventually, while fellow Argentinian Jorge Sampaoli was able to command Chile to victory in a stadium that was used as a prison at the beginning of Augusto Pinochet’s reign.

WorldSoccerTalk.com: Alexis Sanchez’s impressive year crowned by Copa America victory

Alexis Sanchez scored the winning penalty against Argentina in arguably the most important year of his career. He was amazing in his first year for Arsenal after he left Barcelona, and he was able to capitalize on his good form at the Copa America too, where he was an integral member of the team that delivered the first ever title for host nation Chile.

At Barcelona his main task was to give the ball to Lionel Messi and to win it back before giving it to Messi. However, anyone who follows sports scores might have noticed that in the past few years he emerged as one of the best forwards in the world, transforming from a quick winger, who is very good at pressing to a reliable goal scorer.

Sanchez virtually swapped roles with Luis Suarez, as the Chile international had to move after the Uruguayan world class player was acquired from Liverpool. Sanchez went to the Premier League to lead a team and to become PFA Fans’ Player of the Year, and at the Copa he helped his team with industrious work. After missing a penalty against Brazil in the shootout at the World Cup a year ago, he scored with his spot-kick this time to defeat Argentina.

Just-football.com: 22 Years, 6 Finals, 6 Defeats: Argentina Lose Another Final As Agonising Wait Continues

Though Javier Mascherano and Lionel Messi won everything with Barcelona this season, they lost two finals with Argentina in a year. Last summer at the World Cup in Brazil, they were defeated by Germany in overtime, while this time at the 2015 Copa America, host nation Chile proved to be a better penalty taking team than La Albiceleste.

Argentina is one of the biggest footballing nations, however, the national team has won no trophy in 22 years. Their last success came in 1993 at the Copa America in Ecuador, when they beat Mexico in the final with a brace from Gabriel Batistuta. Since then Brazil won it four times, Uruguay conquered the continent twice, even Colombia and now Chile was able to deliver a title.

Argentina has a generation now that won everything at youth level, with two U-20 World Cup victories and two gold medals at the Olympics between 2004 and 2008, as followers of live sports results might remember, yet fail to win a single trophy when competing with the grown-ups.
