Nigeria eyes Chelsea youngster Ike Ugbo

first_imgRelatedPosts Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Chelsea sink Brighton to make winning start Chelsea youngster Ike Ugbo has become the latest England prospect to be targeted by Nigeria.Nigeria have been running the rule over 21-year-old hotshot Ugbo who has caught the eye after making a prolific start to his loan spell at Roda JC this season.Ugbo scored his fifth goal in just eight appearances, six of which have been starts, for the Dutch side at Telstar on Friday night and Nigeria had officials at the game to watch him having stepped up their interest.Striker Ugbo was born in Lewisham, south London and is eligible for Nigeria through his parents.He has played for England at under-17 and under-20 level, helping the latter squad win the 2017 Toulon Tournament.Nigeria were dealt a blow last week when Ugbo’s Stamford Bridge teammate Tammy Abraham was recalled to the England squad when they were hoping to persuade him to switch allegiance.The Premier League’s joint top scorer Abraham has featured twice for England in friendlies against Germany and Brazil but will not be tied down until he earns a competitive cap, which could come in either of the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic or Bulgaria.Nigeria’s attempts to swoop for eligible youngsters with dual nationality show no sign of slowing down and could now continue with Ugbo, having recently persuaded the likes of Alex Iwobi, Ola Aina and Chuba Akpom, who all represented England at youth level, to make the switch.Ugbo has shown admirable maturity by refusing to let a bizarre pay dispute disrupt his scoring form and is determined to continue making his mark in Holland.

Leicester keeper Schmeichel defends under-fire De Gea

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Foxes attack Burnley EPL: Underdogs tackle Leicester City EPL: Newcastle hammer West Ham away Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel says the criticism being levelled at his Manchester United counterpart David de Gea was building a “dangerous narrative”.Calls for De Gea to be dropped have grown after the 29-year-old’s mistakes in United’s FA Cup semi-final defeat by Chelsea last weekend, with Dean Henderson backed to take over after an impressive loan spell at Sheffield United. With Leicester set to meet United on Sunday, Schmeichel said media coverage of De Gea’s performances could give viewers the impression the Spaniard was constantly making mistakes.He said: “That’s sometimes quite a dangerous narrative because all of a sudden it starts building momentum and for someone like David.“I really feel for him because he’s been unbelievable for so many years and every goalkeeper goes through periods (of poor form).“There’s a lot of pressure also in the sense that you now have an England goalkeeper (Henderson) coming through and, like it or not, in this country when you have an English goalkeeper, that means so much and they do tend to build them up.“I genuinely hope for someone like Henderson, who’s had an amazing season, that he can be allowed to develop. “I hope… he gets another season, maybe two at Sheffield United and play the way he’s done and then he will be ready.“But for now De Gea is still a world-class goalkeeper. It’s a lonely position and those are the margins you play in … you simply can’t make mistakes because you will be punished.”Reuters/NAN.Tags: Dean HendersonFA Cup semi-finalKasper SchmeichelLeicester Citylast_img read more

Dolan in charge for Reds clash

first_img Former Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio remains the favourite to take over at the Madejski Stadium with most bookmakers ahead of Roberto Di Matteo and Nigel Adkins, another man considered very unlucky to lose his job after securing promotion to the top flight with Southampton last season. With only nine games left to save themselves, time is of the essence for Reading, but they are without a game for a fortnight after Saturday’s clash with Manchester United because of international fixtures. It would be a surprise if owner Anton Zingarevich did not have a new man in place by the time Reading meet Arsenal on March 30 and the Russian has been at the club’s Hogwood Park training ground today working with director of football Nick Hammond on the recruitment process. Reading’s players have been queuing up to praise McDermott, who had been part of the staff at Reading since 2000. Captain Jobi McAnuff wrote a tribute to the former manager on the club website today and revealed he spoke to McDermott on the phone after his sacking on Monday. The winger said: “Obviously it was a difficult conversation but he handled himself with great dignity. He wished us all the best for the season, which is a mark of the man. He didn’t talk about himself or what had happened, he just had the players’ and the club’s best interests at heart.” Zingarevich addressed the squad on Tuesday and McAnuff stressed the players “fully respect his decision”. McAnuff continued: “Eamonn and I also spoke at length and I would like to wish him the best of luck and emphasise that he has the full support of the players as we concentrate on Saturday’s game.” Dolan, formerly the head of the academy, was placed in temporary charge following the sacking of Brian McDermott on Monday, while assistant manager Nigel Gibbs also left the club. Reading’s 2-1 defeat by Aston Villa last Saturday was their fourth in a row in the Barclays Premier League and left them 19th in the table, with only goal difference keeping them above QPR. Reading caretaker boss Eamonn Dolan is expected to take charge of the Royals for Saturday’s trip to Old Trafford with no permanent appointment believed to be imminent.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Duff eyeing summer move abroad

first_imgDamien Duff will end his five-year association with Fulham this summer, with the winger contemplating a move to Australia or the United States before returning home to Ireland. Press Association A knee injury has brought this campaign to a premature end and, once recovered from surgery, he is planning to move in search of “something new” at the end of his contract. “I’m up at the end of the season,” Duff told the Irish Times. “The club haven’t spoken to me and I haven’t spoken to the club but we don’t need to speak: I’ll be leaving Fulham. I’ve had a great time here but that’s football. “I’ve had a few whispers from here and there but I’m just trying to get this [injury] right first. “I’ve looked at the Australia or America thing for a bit, it would be a different way of life, a different league; I think life’s too short just to be stuck in the rat race, if that’s the right phrase, over here so I’d maybe like to taste something new before I go back home.” Duff would like to do a “year or two elsewhere” before plying his trade in the League of Ireland, with the winger admitting former Republic of Ireland team-mate Robbie Keane, now of LA Galaxy, has suggested a move to Major League Soccer. “We’ve had a bit of banter all right,” he said. “He obviously loves it and every six months I see he’s signed a new deal so he’ll be there for a good while yet. “We’ll see what happens but I wouldn’t mind trying it to be fair but I have to get back fit first, I’ve got a screw in my knee now and a screw in the knee of a jinky winger doesn’t really go hand in hand but we’ll see what happens. “We’d be up for it and we’d like to see the world but it wouldn’t be for a jolly up. I’m still as hungry as ever.” center_img After spells with Blackburn, Chelsea and Newcastle, the 35-year-old moved to Craven Cottage in August 2009 and that season helped the Whites to the Europa League final. Duff has made 173 appearances in all for the west Londoners, although February’s appearance off the bench in the FA Cup fourth-round exit to Sheffield United looks to have been his last for the club last_img read more

Angels’ Brian Goodwin says it’s important to continue the discussion about equality

(AP Photo/Kelvin Kuo)WHERE’S KEYNAN?Although many fans and analysts expected Middleton to be a part of the high leverage portion of the Angels bullpen, apparently Joe Maddon isn’t ready to put Middleton in that role yet.“I’d rather break him in slowly,” Maddon said Thursday afternoon. “He’s got the fine arm. There’s still some things I’d like him to settle in and at some point, yes, fold him into the latter part of the game. But right now we like earlier, or in the situations that you’ve seen him to this point.”Middleton entered in the seventh with a three-run lead in his first game, but his only other appearance was in the ninth inning with the Angels up by eight runs. He did not pitch in either of the two games that the bullpen let late leads get away.Middleton was the Angels closer just before undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2018. He has since worked to improve his changeup and slider, to go with his 97 mph fastball.“Keynan will get his opportunity,” Maddon said, “but for right now, though, it’s not necessarily high leverage.”ALSOThe Angels recalled reliever Kyle Keller from the Long Beach squad to take the roster spot of Mike Trout, who was placed on the paternity list…Julio Teheran was scheduled for a three-inning outing in a simulated game with the Angels reserve squad in Long Beach on Thursday afternoon.

Since then Goodwin has continued to do so, while the others have either stood or been out of sight during the anthem.During the sport’s shutdown, Goodwin took part in some peaceful demonstrations in the wake of the George Floyd murder, which sparked a new wave of protests of systemic racism throughout the country.It’s been reflected around Major League Baseball, with players all around the majors kneeling during the anthem and wearing Black Lives Matter shirts, apparently with the support of the sport and the clubs.“This is kind of new territory, honestly, for me, and probably some of the other guys that are involved,” Goodwin said. “The main thing we have to do is keep bringing attention to the issue. We have to continue to use our voices the way we have been, and doing so collectively with everyone in sync and on the same page. I think it comes off as a stronger narrative when everyone is on the same page and doing everything together…“We have to keep bringing attention to the issue, keep peacefully protesting, keep using our voices the best we know how and keep making statements however we can, whether it’s on or off the field, on social media, even interviews like this.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone ANAHEIM — Brian Goodwin has continued to make a statement during the national anthem, even as some of his Angels teammates did so only on Opening Day.For a simple reason.The racism that Goodwin and other players have been protesting by kneeling during the national anthem still exists.“It’s an important issue,” Goodwin said Thursday. “It’s something that needs to be addressed, and when you have the stage to address it, I feel like you need to use it. And right now, I’m in position to have the stage and have the support from the Angels, so it would be a detriment to people who know me and my fans and people back home for me to not take advantage of it.” Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros last_img read more
