Mirandés continues to surprise and eliminates Sevilla in Copa del Rey

first_imgIraola’s team easily wins (3-1) a blurred SevillaIt is the only team that breaks the tyranny of the ‘first’ in quarters New surprise in Anduva. The Mirandés managed to defeat Sevilla 3-1 in a match in which two goals before half an hour gave Andoni Iraola’s team some peace of mind. The reds qualified for the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey for the fourth time in their history and expect a rival to be decided in the draw.The Mirandés began the game very seriously, squeezing the ball out of Sevilla and gave the bell very soon with an early goal from Matheus that aroused the madness in Anduva. The Brazilian was ahead of the rojillo team after winning the ball with his body and remaining alone against Vaclik who could not stop right to the second post of the Mirandés striker.Sevilla reacted after the goal, with several occasions that found no goal. With the Mirandés thrown back, but with the clearest ideas in attack, Malsa was able to extend the advantage but Vacilik stopped the ball.A very dangerous foul by Antonio Sánchez to Munir in the front of the area could change the course of the game, but Limones cleared the foul dumped by Gudelj.The reddish attack was more defined and Matheus scored the second after an error from Ever Banega and a little help from Gudelj, who touched the ball with his back to mislead the Sevilla goalkeeper.Julen Lopetegui watched as the first part ended and did not know how to stop forward Matheus, who drove the Nervión team centrals crazy. The Mirandés continued to squeeze in the final minutes and could score in third with a cross shot of Merquelanz and then with another of Matheus, but Vaclik this time did not hesitate. Photo: EFEcenter_img After passing through the locker room, Lopetegui did not see the game clearly and made a triple change in his starting eleven, putting Ocampos, En-Nesyri and Jordan. Sevillistas starred in the first two occasions, but Mirandés was able to sentence the match from the penalty spot.The referee Jaime Latre had to go to the VAR to see the penalty of Diego Carlos on Álvaro Rey. Vaclik intercepted Álvaro Peña’s shot, a penalty for Andoni Iraola’s team that could have sentenced the match.Mirandés was not affected by missing the maximum penalty, as he kept trying several times but Sevilla insisted on a superb Lemons and a reddish set locked behind.Those of Lopetegui continued fighting controlling the ball at all times, while those of Iraola dedicated themselves to shrinking balls thinking about the end of the match. The minutes passed and time was running out for Sevilla.Álvaro Rey finished the game when he suffered the most reddish team. A clearance after a corner of Sevilla, the Sevilla was the fastest and despite the fact that Vaclik stopped the first attempt to the second marked the third, which gave the final pass to the quarterfinals to Mirandés.Sevilla scored the goal of honor in Nolito boots with the time served on a night that will go down in the history of the rojillo team, the only survivor who does not dispute the First Division of this round.– Data sheet: 3 – Mirandes: Limones, Sergio, Odei, Álvaro Peña (Guridi min 63), Matheus Aias (Marcos André min 73), Álvaro Rey (Kijera min 87), Merquelanz, Malsa, Alex González, Franquesa, Antonio Sánchez.1 – Seville: Vaclik, Nolito, Banega (Ocampos min 46), Munir (En-Nesyri min 46), Koundé (Jordan min 46), Jesús Navas, Gudelj, Escudero, De Jong, Diego Carlos, Oliver.Goals: 1-0: M.7 Matheus. 2-0: M.29 Matheus. 3-0: M. 86 Álvaro Rey. 3-1: M.90 NolithReferee: Jaime Latre (Aragonese school).

Premier League clubs will negotiate pay cuts individually

first_imgRight now, there is a widespread feeling that clubs will be forced to conduct direct negotiations with their own players, something that would further prolong the problem.Both sides of the negotiation are upset. Players believe that they are giving an image of greedy. Comments from Matt Hancock, health secretary, last week, saying that footballers “should play their part” did not go down well in the locker room.Players want to make sure that clubs don’t want to be opportunists to save money by reducing their wages. Footballers want guarantees that lower-paid teammates are protected, and they would also like to see commitment from club owners. Premier League clubs will start individual negotiations to cut their players’ salaries after failing to reach a collective agreement to try to alleviate the crisis caused by the coronavirus.Despite the fact that players have been informed of the large losses that clubs may suffer due to the interruption of competition due to the pandemic, the Association of Professional Soccer Players has rejected a collective salary cut of 30%.Over the next week, the clubs will discuss the proposal received to try to reach a collective agreement. Many of the clubs are concerned about the possibility of reducing their income in the event that the season is suspended and some of them have already taken measures that affect club employees to reduce this possible effect.last_img read more

Tony Becca: A New year of hope

first_imgThe New year is just a few days old, and despite all the problems in West Indies cricket – the abandoned tour of India; the defeats at the hands of Australia; Sri Lanka, and Australia again; the crisis facing the Board; and the fact that no West Indian made it into Test cricket’s Top Ten at the end of the year – we wish all those in the fraternity all the best for 2016. The only saving grace last year was the wonderful and thrilling victory at Kensington Oval, the one which handed the West Indies a draw against England and which filled every West Indian with excitement and with plenty hope. Although that hope ended only in wishful thinking, my wish, despite my feeling that things will remain the same, in spite of the huffing and puffing by the toothless CARICOM governments, is that the gloom of 2015 will be replaced by a little light in 2016. I love cricket, and I am passionate about Melbourne, Jamaica, and West Indies cricket. Indeed, most people, those who know me and know me well, especially my family, will say that I eat, sleep, and drink cricket. Last year, the West Indies brought down the curtain with an embarrassing and humiliating performance against Australia. They did nothing right. They were terrible in batting, bowling, and fielding. Indeed, with the exception of Darren Bravo, Kraigg Brathwaite, and a few others, they looked like novices. This year, however, the West Indies are scheduled to play one or two series, and based on results of the recent past, things are hardly likely to be any better. In fact, every year it has been the same. Despite the utterances about improvements and little gains, nothing has changed; nothing at all. Looking at the team, which, despite its weakness, includes a few questionable selections, looking at the management team, which allows inexperience and non-performing youngsters to speak on behalf of the team, and looking at the people who consistently talk glowingly about what to expect from the players despite defeat after defeat, it is easy to write off the players – especially as it appears that nothing is really being done to remedy the situation. Despite all the talk, the huge entourage surrounding the team on every tour, the money reportedly being spent on West Indies cricket, and the outreach in West Indies cricket, nothing is really happening. The West Indies need a system to develop their young players into productive players. They need to play the game regularly, to train regularly, and not only when it is ordered and supervised. They need people, good people, checking on them regularly, and not only to sympathise with them and to pat them on the back like nice guys whenever they fail. They need people, coaches or whoever, who will also say something or do something constructive at such times, which, at this time, is most times. COMMITTED PLAYERS The West Indies need to look also for players, good players, who are also proud people, committed people, and people who, although there is not one, respect the flag. And those kinds of players are necessary, very necessary. It makes no sense, or very little sense, to have the most talented players who, at the first sign of adversity, sulk and withdraw themselves from the game, sometimes, most times, affecting other players on the team. The West Indies need players who believe in one for all and all for one, and also players who, even though it is not true, believe, like a journalist, that he, or she, is as good as his, or her, last story. It is folly to fail, and fail, after one or two good performance and to stroll around the ground, to swagger, like the proverbial “cat’s pyjamas”. It is just as bad to treat one who has failed and failed after one or two good performances like royalty. My wish for 2016 is that these things will change. West Indies cricket has been through the good and the bad. It started promisingly, it had its watershed in 1950, it had its ups and downs, it became the best in the world, and now it is back at stage one. The return to the glory days, or near to them, must come back, hopefully, if not quickly. West Indies cricket basically has good, young players. They, however, need to commit themselves to the game and to the West Indies, to train hard and to play hard, and to remember who they are, where they are from, and that although it may not be the best in the world, although players from India, England, Australia earn more money than they do, those from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and South Africa are not. The West Indies players are paid what the West Indies can afford. It is as simple as that. My wish for the new year is that from all the few basically talented West Indies players some can be found with the class to carry West Indies cricket through these parlous times. The West Indies need players who can bat, bowl, field and know how to play the game. The West Indies need batsmen who can do more than reel off a pretty stroke here and there, bowlers who can really bowl and who can get good batsmen out, and fielders who can really field. My wish for this year is that the West Indies will see the light and realise that their cricketers are nowhere nearly as good as those of yesteryear, that their cricketers will also face that fact, that their cricketers play Test cricket two or three years too early in most cases, that our administrators will end their insularity, tighten up on West Indies cricket and make it stronger, and that they need to train and practice until they hear a voice say practice no more. West Indies cricket also needs to see less swagger in the cricketers, less cheerleaders, for whatever reason, among those who should guide, and among those guide technical development, and more people who can inspire and motivate rather than simply tell how to bat and bowl.last_img read more
