Liverpool’s Van Dijk accuses Kane of diving

first_imgLiverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has accused Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane of diving to win a penalty in Sunday’s dramatic 2-2 Premier League draw at Anfield.Referee Jon Moss ruled Tottenham’s England international had been brought down after the slightest of touches from goalkeeper Loris Karius after being controversially allowed to play on despite being in an offside position.Kane missed the penalty but redeemed himself from the spot deep into added time after Van Dijk was adjudged to have fouled Erik Lamela — the striker’s 100th Premier League goal.But the world’s most expensive defender thinks Kane was lucky to get the first award, especially after Dele Alli had been booked for diving in the box moments earlier.“I think it is a dive. You see him (Kane) diving clearly and no one is talking about it but I think it is a dive,” said Van Dijk, who joined Liverpool from Southampton last month for £75 million ($106 million, 85 million euros).“There is a lot of discussion about whether it is offside, yes or no, but I think it was offside as well.“You could just see him making that dive. The referee made his decision together with the linesman. It was good for us that it got saved.”Asked whether he thought Kane should be retrospectively punished, the Dutch international added: “That is not something for me.“I thought it was a dive, that is my opinion and the referee thought it was no offside and no dive and he gave a pen. Good for us that we saved it.”Van Dijk was also unhappy with the award of the second penalty, when Lamela went down as the Dutchman tried to clear the ball.“I saw him coming in the end and I try and hold my leg in — he just pulled his body in front of the ball and he goes down,” he said.“The ref said play on and I was very disappointed that the linesman said otherwise. I don’t think that is a penalty, same with the first one. That is also clearly not a penalty.”Liverpool are third in the Premier League, five points behind second-placed Manchester United, while Spurs are fifth, one point behind Chelsea, who travel to play Watford on Monday.last_img read more

Pep Guardiola says title race is not over despite Newcastle loss

first_imgPep Guardiola said anything can still happen in the Premier League title race after Manchester City were surprisingly beaten 2-1 by Newcastle.Looking to close the gap on Premier League leaders Liverpool to one point, City made the perfect start at St James’ Park as Sergio Aguero scored after 24 seconds.However, Newcastle replied with two second-half goals to dent City’s title ambitions.Liverpool could go seven points clear if they beat Leicester on Wednesday, but Guardiola said: “Well, it’s a lot of points if they go on to win, but we are in January, it’s not April or May. There are still many games and anything can happen.“A lot of teams are playing many reasons, teams to stay in the Premier League, others to go to the Europa League, for the Champions League.“In our case, every game, we have to do our best to be there, try to not give up, move forward and try another time and another time.”Asked whether City had underestimated Newcastle, Guardiola said: “Never. When you are in four competitions it is because you don’t underestimate one competition or one team. When you get 100 points it is because you don’t underestimate one team. If you do you are not in the final of the Carabao Cup.“Sometimes we don’t play the level we want to play, it happens…it’s everybody, it’s not just one player. We could not win, because we were not at our best, that’s all.”Guardiola was left to bemoan a missed opportunity, but backed his players to bounce back from a disappointing evening.“It was not our best night,” said Guardiola. “We were not at our best, sometimes that happens, I can understand the players.“We didn’t play like normal, it happens sometimes, unfortunately we couldn’t win.”“I love these players. I know how they feel right now and I am beside them, close to them. It’s an incredible group. Sometimes it happens.”last_img read more

I’m In Love With Iheanacho – Fans React To Eagles’ Star Turn Against West…

first_imgKelechi Iheanacho came on as a substitute to provide two assists tonight. Put in a superb performance and even with Vardy ‘s injury, Rogers won’t be losing any sleep cos the Nigerian is in red hot form. #LEIWHU— E (@iamOkon) January 22, 2020 Kelechi Iheanacho going from substitute to SSJ like a boss pic.twitter.com/tKWhWCmrW0— Taj Dhaliwal (@TajiDhaliwal) January 22, 2020 If only iheanacho can continue with this form ehn, he might be PFA Premier League Player of the month. pic.twitter.com/odXzPOkycW— Cornex (@cornexology9) January 23, 2020 Just going to put it out there… Iheanacho is starting to look a player again isn’t he? #lcfc— WTFox (@WTFox1884) January 22, 2020 Kelechi Iheanacho is the toast of Leicester City fans worldwide following his spectacular performance in the Foxes’ 4-1 thrashing of West Ham on Wednesday.Nigerians were also not left out with many taking to social media to express joy at the return to form of a player many had despaired would fail to reach his potential after he was unceremoniously axed from the Super Eagles on the back of a sustained slump that saw him fail to score for Leceister in over a year. All that has now been forgotten as the Super Eagles star served up a timely reminder of the talent that had many purring over him as a 17-year-old and is bound to catch the eye of Gernot Rohr.Iheanacho came off the bench as a 42nd-minute substitute for the injured Jamie Vardy to win a penalty scored by Ayoze Perez and bag an assist for the same player late on as Leicester, who also welcomed back key midfielder Wilfred Ndidi from injury, recorded their first win in four games.His performance allayed Foxes’ fans fears about the injured Vardy and the plaudits kept on coming for the Nigerian.Not even worried if Vardy is out for a while, Perez’s goal fest until the end of the season and Iheanacho’s campaign for Ballon D’or just started this evening 👉🦊👈.— H (@Harrysolomons) January 22, 2020 Iheanacho won a pen and made an assist today. I’m definitely getting him to replace Vardy.Time to sub Tammy for Aguero to compensate.— Ayodeji Ayodeji (@AyodejiX2) January 22, 2020center_img Anyone who says Vardy is integral to the way #lcfc play is either in a 2016 time warp or clueless. As superb as vardy is, actually, iheanacho is more suited to this style. IF Vardy is out, it’s no major issue to #lcfc nowadays.— Paul Sherwood (@paulifd) January 22, 2020 Iheanacho didn’t travel to the village for Christmas last year.He has been doing amazingly well at the field of play.— Nwoke Nkwerre 🌍 (@alvanchinaka) January 22, 2020 RelatedExpensive Flop!

MHS thump Linden Technical Institute 2-0, NSS crush Linden Foundation 7-0

first_imgBy Joe ChapmanMACKENZIE High School (MHS) thumped Linden Technical Institute 2-0 while New Silvercity Secondary (NSS) crushed Linden Foundation Secondary 7-0 to have perfect starts when the Edward ‘Screw’ Richmond 10th Memorial Linden Schools Under-18 football tournament got underway at the Wisburg Secondary School ground, Wednesday afternoon.The tournament was witnessed by visiting officials from the United States-based Edward ‘Screw’ Richmond Foundation. Ashton Angel (Sr) declared the championship open after stating how pleased his colleagues were to have been associated with the championship over the last decade.The other member of the ‘Screw’ Richmond Foundation out of New York, Compton ‘Cha Cha’ London, who grew up watching Richmond, excelled by becoming not only the first player from the mining town to don national senior colours, but also a top billiards player, tennis champion and hard-hitting batsman with a record score of 175 not out at the Mackenzie Sports Club ground.Unfortunately, officials from the Ministry of Education in Linden or the governing football authority for the game, the Upper Demerara Football Association (UDFA), did not send representatives for the official opening of this tournament.In the first game of the tournament, which is being contested by eight representative schools, Mackenzie High School gained a comfortable 2-0 win over Linden Technical Institute with Kemuel Batson getting the first two goals of the tournament.First he banged home one from just inside the 18-yard box in the first half then after play resumed he sent a good shot from the middle, which caught the goalkeeper off his line, bounced over his head and ended up in the net for a 2-0 advantage which they maintained to the end of the game.That game was followed by New Silvercity Secondary thrashing Linden Foundation Secondary 7-0, through a quadruple of goals from Emmanuel Atkins, Ojani Whittington, Huey Fraser and the other from an own goal which came off the boot of Linden Foundation’s Keon Liverpool.This afternoon from 14:45hrs Christianburg Wismar Secondary will meet Harmony Secondary and at 16:15hrs Linden Foundation Secondary will face the Combined Schools at the Wisburg Secondary School ground.last_img read more

Gareth Bale: Bail withdrawn or sedan dropped? What happens in…

first_imgHighlight:Zidane says he did not exclude Gareth BaleReal are two goals behind Manchester CityBale has won four Champions League titles with Real MadridWhy was superstar Gareth Bale not included in the Real Madrid squad to play against Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League? The football world has been discussing the matter since Royal coach Zinedine Zidane announced the team yesterday. Sedan has decided not to serve as the highest paid player on the team. Social media is also debating whether Bailey has abandoned his partnership with Real Madrid.Zidane has the answer to all this. He does not want to play against Manchester City! This is the answer given by Sedan. Zidane said he had personally spoken to Bailey and expressed his desire to stay out of the match against City.Also Read: Europa League quarter-final line-up clear; It will be easy for United and InterSince the resumption of the Spanish La Liga in June, Bale has played just two of Real’s eleven games. Zidane was included in the playing XI in one game. It is clear that the Wales winger will not be in Sedan’s future plans. Zidane, however, rejects all such assessments. Bailey is still part of his team. The news that Bailey has no future at the Madrid club is untrue. Respect his decision. He said he was not playing. It only did the facelift. Now I don’t want to talk about anything else. “The only thing the team is thinking about is facing Manchester City,” Zidane said.Also Read: Cristiano Ronaldo loses title to Italy’s best footballer, snatched by teammate!Bailey wants to be part of a team that does not have much of a chance. Therefore, Bailey may have decided not to travel to London to play in the Champions League. Bail was kept away from the club’s celebrations on the night of their La Liga title. Manchester City beat Spain 2-1 in the first quarter. Only a two-goal comeback in the return leg will give Real a place in the quarter-finals. With two away goals, City have the upper hand in the second leg. Bale is a four-time Champions League winner, having scored in the finals. The 2018 bicycle kick continues to be a wonder goal. If Real lose to City, fans will point to Bailey’s absence. If that happens, Sedan will be caught up in club management.Also Read: 12 clubs, who will win the UEFA Champions League?
