Arsenal eye Real Betis star as Dani Ceballos replacement

first_imgRead Also: Barcelona star Coutinho seeks Premier League returnThe 26-year-old has netted seven goals and provided three assists in his 23 matches for Betis since his landmark summer switch from French club Olympique Lyonnais.Indeed, that signing was viewed as a significant coup for the Seville-based club and it has been widely reported that another club could swoop this coming summer.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 El Desmarque cites a report in the Daily Star that the Gunners even held discussions with him last summer before he left Lyon but was already set on a move to Seville. Arsenal have identified Real Betis playmaker Nabil Fekir as a replacement for Dani Ceballos, whose loan deal expires this summer.Advertisement Loading… center_img Ceballos is approaching the end of his season-long loan deal in North London from Real Madrid and there have even been suggestions he could return to Betis this summer.It follows a similar report in that Real Madrid are interested after he played a starring role in the most recent La Liga match – a 2-1 win for Betis at home to Los Blancos.Meanwhile, last week a report in Diario AS claimed that Milan also held an interest in the France international but their €40m valuation of the player was unlikely to be enough.Los Verdiblancos are likely to miss out on European football this season and will therefore need to sell star players – Giovani Lo Celso, Pau Lopez and Junior Firpo were among those to depart last summer.

Stalemate at Upton Park

first_imgWest Ham were held to a goalless draw by Barclays Premier League bottom side Sunderland but it will be the Black Cats who will be more disappointed with having to settle for a share of the spoils. The Hammers had the ball in the net from the resulting set-piece as Guy Demel bundled it home but referee Andre Marriner had already blown for a free-kick for an infringement. The early pace of the game was lost as the first half progressed, with Marriner coming under increasing scrutiny from the home fans for giving a number of decisions in favour of the Black Cats. Their upset turned to anger just before the half-hour mark as Collins was instructed to hurry up with a free-kick inside his own half despite the fact Altidore was clearly not 10 yards back. The Wales international eventually took the free-kick and it hit Altidore, with Fabio Borini breaking at an unprotected West Ham defence before shooting straight at Jaaskelainen. Full-back Bardsley came closest to opening the scoring before the interval as his arrowed drive cracked against Jaaskelainen’s crossbar with the experienced Finn well beaten. Ravel Morrison then burst to life with two jinking and twisting runs that left more than one Sunderland defender on the ground but neither resulted in chances for the hosts. Giaccherini saw a shot deflected behind as the half drew to a close and Demel blocked well from Borini as Poyet’s side ended the half in the ascendancy. Skipper Cattermole had the last meaningful touch of the half as he flashed in an effort that once again required Jaaskelainen to make a save. The movement of Sunderland’s attacking trio of Giaccherini, Borini and Altidore continued to cause West Ham problems at the start of the second-half as the Black Cats started on the front foot once more. West Ham were still enjoying small spells of possession with the craft of Morrison continuing to look their most likely way through to opening the scoring. The former Manchester United youngster hit a low shot that was well saved by Vito Mannone before Diame thrashed an effort into the side-netting after making space for himself inside the box. The game reverted back to a pattern similar to the opening exchanges with both sides looking to break the deadlock, although neither Sebastian Larsson nor Giaccherini could test Jaaskelainen with their respective efforts. Altidore did work Jaaskelainen after a smart turn in the box but the 38-year-old saved comfortably as the game remained goalless with 30 minutes remaining. Poyet turned to substitutes Adam Johnson and Steven Fletcher to win him the game while Allardyce introduced Carlton Cole from the bench for the final 15 minutes as he looked to give his side more attacking clout. But it was Sunderland who came close once again as Ki turned inside the box and saw his effort pushed away by Jaaskelainen. Morrison flashed a shot wide with just under five minutes remaining, with West Ham seemingly shifting their game plan and aiming long balls towards Cole. Former Sunderland defender George McCartney almost scored a lucky winner deep in stoppage time when his cross had to be tipped over by Mannone as the game ended goalless. Sunderland defender Phil Bardsley came closest to finding a winner with a long-range pile-driver that came back off the woodwork towards the end of the first half. Gus Poyet’s side need to start picking up wins but, with no league goal away from home since August 31, Sunderland know where their improvement must come from. The game started at a high tempo as both sides looked to strike early and settle any nerves that would have been prominent at kick-off. Mohamed Diame nutmegged John O’Shea and held off Lee Cattermole before cutting a cross back to Modibo Maiga, who blazed over with Wes Brown sliding in. The same duo linked up again moments later with a deeper cross from Diame headed towards the back post by Maiga, with the onrushing Matt Jarvis unable to get a telling touch. The best early chance fell to the visitors as Emanuele Giaccherini slipped a ball into the path of Jozy Altidore but the United States international’s shot was tipped behind by Jussi Jaaskelainen. The corner was only cleared as far as Ki Sung-yueng, whose rasping drive was deflected behind with the Swansea loanee blazing over from a similar position seconds later. With the game still wide open, Jarvis’ cross to the near-post was just missed by James Collins with the ball deflecting behind for a corner. Press Association The Hammers struggled to create any chances of note in a poor game at Upton Park and they remain outside of the league’s relegation zone by just a point. Co-chairman David Sullivan had said earlier in the day that manager Sam Allardyce will be at the club until the end of the season but a lacklustre display in front of a largely disgruntled crowd will have done the Hammers boss few favours. last_img read more

Niall O’Brien gets Ireland off to solid start against Papua New Guinea

first_img O’Brien hit four boundaries in his 168-ball stay but will be disappointed to have lost his wicket shortly before the close on a weather-hit opening day when 21 overs were lost to a combination of bad light and rain as Ireland closed on 232 for five. A sluggish pitch and a slow outfield helped Papua New Guinea keep Ireland in check and the rate never got above three runs an over. Gary Wilson hit five boundaries as he made 48 and supported O’Brien in a fourth-wicket stand of 69 in the best partnership of the day before being trapped lbw by Chad Soper. Niall O’Brien top-scored with 63 as Ireland made a solid start to their ICC Intercontinental Cup clash with Papua New Guinea at Townsville.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Wisconsin soccer garners 300th win

first_imgGREGORY DIXON/Herald PhotoAfter losing their Big Ten conference opener to No. 19 Illinois 4-2 on Friday night, Wisconsin’s women’s soccer team salvaged the weekend, reaching a milestone by knocking off Iowa 1-0 Sunday afternoon to earn the 300th win in program history.”At this point, going into our Big Ten season and during a 25th reunion period, it’s something that is a milestone for this program,” head coach Dean Duerst said after the game. “You can look back that we did it at a special time.”Whether the 300th win would come Sunday or have to wait until next weekend was something that wasn’t decided until late in the second half. Wisconsin senior midfielder Allison Preiss’ goal in the 74th minute proved to be the only goal of the match. Preiss’ first goal of the season came about as a result of some interesting circumstances. Moments before Preiss’ goal, UW senior midfielder Kara Kabellis charged a bouncing ball and ended up colliding with Iowa goalkeeper Ali Becker. No foul was called and Becker lay on the ground for a couple of moments before getting up and assuring her team and the referees she was able to continue. On the ensuing corner-kick, sophomore midfielder Elise Weber sent the ball into the box where Becker made a diving save but was unable to control the ball. Preiss made her pay for the mistake as she held off a Hawkeye defender to notch the goal. “It was definitely a battle throughout the whole game,” UW junior midfielder Marissa Sarkesian said. “We could’ve gotten a little bit more offense and more shots, but we definitely got the job done and that’s all that matters; pulling out that first win in the Big Ten.”The Badgers controlled the pace of play for most of the match and had a healthy advantage statistically, but found themselves having to battle until the end to get the win. Clinging to a 1-0 lead with just over 10 minutes to play, the Badgers had to withstand one last Hawkeye attack. UW junior goalkeeper Lynn Murray, who recorded her second straight shutout, came out to make a diving stop on the ball but missed and Iowa gained control. Iowa’s Christina Sahly received a pass and was facing a nearly wide open net. The only thing in her way was UW junior defender Ann Eshun, who was standing in the middle of the goal line. Had she placed it just about anywhere else, Sahly would’ve likely tied the game, but she kicked it directly at Eshun who moved the huge kick save to preserve the historic win for the Badgers. “We came here to win the game; in a mind frame, as a team,” Duerst said. “I think that was the most important aspect in preparing for this game coming from a tough Friday night.” Things did not go according to plan Friday night as the Badgers kicked off their Big Ten season. The Badgers were hoping to build off a quality non-conference performance, but instead fell to No. 19 Illinois 4-2 in front of an attendance of 490 at the McClimon Complex. The Illini struck first; converting on their first shot on goal just over six minutes into the match. A corner kick from midfielder Kristy Weeks was deflected and the ball landed right on the foot of fellow midfielder Courtney Bell who knocked it past starting UW goalkeeper Stefani Szczechowski to give Illinois the early lead. The Badgers would rebound, however, tying the game on a free kick from defender Ann Eshun in the 23rd minute.Eshun’s free kick found its way into the back of the net thanks to some traffic in front of the goal box, which blinded Illinois goalkeeper Lindsey Carstens. Some of that credit could be given to Kabellis who may have provided enough distraction in front to throw off the keeper’s attention long enough for Eshun to notch her first goal of the season.The tie would not last for long though, as just under six minutes later, the Illini struck again. Illinois forward Chichi Nweke, who had just subbed in, dribbled into the penalty box, and as the UW defenders closed in on her, dished the ball back to teammate Mary Therese McDonnell. Wasting little time, the defender drilled it past Szczechowski to give Illinois the 2-1 advantage.The score remained 2-1 as the horn sounded to close out the first half. For the fourth time this season, the Badgers found themselves trailing at the break. Since coming back to beat Creighton in the season opener, the Badgers had lost two straight matches when trailing at the half and Friday night was no different as the team was unable to muster much offense in the second session.Illinois extended its lead to 3-1 just under five minutes into the second half as forward Eva Strickland took a pass from Bell and beat Szczechowski. Strickland’s goal marked the first time this season that a UW opponent had scored more than two goals and, unfortunately for the Badgers, the Illini weren’t done yet.In the 59th minute, Illinois midfielder Marti Desjarlais capped the Illini scoring. A pass from forward Ella Massar missed its intended target but landed right at Desjarlais’ foot to give her team a 4-1 lead.”It was a night in which we were compounding some of our own problems,” Duerst said after Friday night’s game. “We weren’t marking as tight and we were letting them get in too easily behind. [Illinois] is a dangerous team. They’re very efficient in their finishing and it showed tonight.”Wisconsin showed some signs of life later as newly-substituted midfielder Sheri Ferron, one of six Badgers that came in as part of a mass substitution mid-way through the second half, found Kabellis, who launched a shot from a good 30 yards away and beat Carstens to the far-back post.After the game, Kabellis, like Duerst, cited the defense has been an area in which they need to improve; saying they need to start playing defense all over the field. “We let people slip through,” Kabellis said. “There were breakdowns in the midfield and up top and some in the defense as well.”To get more wins in the future, Kabellis feels the team just needs to be tighter on the defensive end. “Bottom line is to get more shutouts,” she said. “We need to stop teams from scoring. If we can do that, we’ll come out on top.”last_img read more

Daley looks to build on return against Notre Dame in ACC tournament

first_img Published on April 24, 2014 at 1:40 am Contact Tyler: On Saturday against Notre Dame, senior midfielder Bridget Daley scored a goal, something she has done 34 times as a member of Syracuse.But after missing most of this season with a broken foot, Daley said she couldn’t remember a more emotional goal than her most recent conversion.“The celebration afterwards … I’ll never forget that,” Daley said. “(My teammates) were so excited for me, and that made it even better.”Able to take the field once again, Daley is ready to make the most of her final games in a Syracuse uniform. She’ll look to continue her strong return when the No. 1 Orange (15-1, 6-1 Atlantic Coast) meets the No. 8 Fighting Irish (9-7, 2-5) for the second straight game in the quarterfinals of the ACC tournament at 3 p.m. in Chestnut Hill, Mass.Although the injury forced Daley to trade in her stick for a walking boot, she didn’t lose her enthusiasm during what has been a special season for the Orange. Now, all she wants is the chance to be a factor during the stretch run, although how much she’ll contribute on the field has yet to be determined.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Just putting on the uniform again for the first time was exciting,” Daley said. “Now, I have this rapport on the sideline, and I’m still into that. Words can’t describe it.”The senior began the year strong by picking up an assist and a draw control in the season opener against Jacksonville. One game later, though, the break happened. As Orange head coach Gary Gait carried her off the field, Daley could only hope she would be ready for postseason play.Fellow senior Alyssa Murray can relate, as she dealt with an injury during her senior year of high school. She said that experience was hard enough, so it’s difficult to imagine how tough this season has been for Daley.“It’s a whole different ballgame, so I think she’s handled it very gracefully,” Murray said. “She’s been an incredible leader off the field, so I think she’s just really excited to be back on.”Daley said her rehab was frustrating at times, but she made a vow to remain an enthusiastic member of the team. That’s why she fully embraced the role of cheerleader, often shouting congratulatory remarks and hopping around on the sideline after goals or big plays. As she put it, everyone on the team has a voice and a part to play.She said the entire experience brought her closer to the entire squad, especially the reserve players whose sacrifices often go unnoticed.“I already had respect for them, but I gained so much more,” Daley said. “Day in, day out, they are out there cheering and don’t get their shot on the field.”Now, they can expect Daley to bring that same raw emotion into the lineup.Gait is happy to have another layer of depth in his midfield unit, but he’s even more excited for the intangibles Daley provides, mainly her intensity and scrappy play.“She’s going to be a huge boost to our energy, our enthusiasm,” Gait said. “She’ll really keep us fired up in this tough ACC and then playoff run.”Daley is entering the ACC tournament with the realistic expectation that she might not play very much, especially as she tests out her recovered left foot.Either way, she doesn’t mind. She just wants to help SU close in on an elusive championship in whatever way she can.“If it’s still on the sideline, then so be it, because we’re ranked No. 1 and put ourselves in a great position,” Daley said. “If it’s getting some minutes, great. Wherever I can contribute, I’ll be happy.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Longoria’s 300 home runs are the most by a third baseman in the majors since 2008, according to the Giants.Flores followed with a two-run drive into the left-field stands in the fifth. Flores has homered in three consecutive games and has 10 RBIs during that span.The Giants have scored six or more runs in nine of their 12 home games. This time they got quality starting pitching to back it up.Webb, who set a career high with five walks in his last start, was much crisper against the Diamondbacks. He allowed two runs and five hits, and retired 10 of 11 after giving up an RBI single to Eduardo Escobar in the fourth.Tony Watson and Tyler Rogers retired three batters apiece to complete the seven-hitter.While Webb was sharp, Ray (1-3) was not.Coming off his best start of the season, the Arizona lefty couldn’t follow it up. Ray walked five, struck out eight and allowed four runs in five innings.NO SIGN OF MADBUMFormer Giants ace Madison Bumgarner — the 2014 World Series MVP — remains back in Arizona rehabbing a mid-back strain, so he won’t see his old club this weekend in the D-backs’ first visit to Oracle Park during the shortened season.Bumgarner will throw another simulated game Sunday at Chase Field with the plan of him getting up to 70 pitches as he continues to build up. “Getting everything moving in a good direction is our priority,” manager Torey Lovullo said.Missing the Giants series might have been tough for the star lefty, who signed an $85 million, five-year contract with the Diamondbacks during the offseason.ROSTER MOVEGiants INF Yolmer Sanchez was granted his release by the club.

Slater, who has been nursing a strained right elbow, drew a walk and advanced on consecutive singles before being replaced by a pinch-runner. … With RHP Reyes Moronta throwing bullpens in Sacramento as he recovers from shoulder surgery, manager Gabe Kapler still believes the reliever might be back sometime next month. “I think there’s optimism about that,” Kapler said.UP NEXTDiamondbacks RHP Zac Gallen (0-0, 2.40 ERA) makes his sixth start in search of his first win of the season Saturday.
