La Liga: Felix double sends Atletico to top four

first_img Costa’s claims for a penalty where ignored despite the former Chelsea striker complaining he had been held back in attempting to reach Lodi’s effort. Felix opened the scoring 20 minutes later after Lodi found space again down the left flank. Lodi played the ball back to Saul Niguez in the box, his shot was deflected to Felix’s path who smashed the ball to the top corner. The hosts’ best chance of an equaliser came six minutes before the break but David Garcia’s long-range shot could only hit the advertising boards. Felix doubled his account 10 minutes into the second half. Costa was fed the ball in the area and he squared it to Felix who side-footed home with ease for his eighth goal of the campaign in all competitions. Felix was substituted on the 69-minute mark as Simeone sent on holding midfielder Thomas Partey, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal. Despite Felix leaving the field his side made sure of three points as Marcos Llorente, Alvaro Morata and Yannick Carrasco scored in the final 11 minutes.

Joao Felix took his goal tally to eight for the season with the double at Osasuna Felix, 20, was making his first appearance since the Spanish top-flight returned from its coronavirus hiatus having been suspended for the weekend’s draw at Athletic Bilbao and had been suffering from an ankle sprain since May. “I felt good, coming back from injury after three months without playing and scoring two goals is very good for me,” Felix told broadcaster Movistar. The northerners remain in 11th after the defeat with an outside chance of making the Europa League but are also 10 points away from the relegation zone. The hosts’ coach Jagoba Arrasate was without captain Oier and Adrian Lopez who scored the equaliser at high-flying Real Sociedad, who can go back above Atltetico on Thursday with a win at Alaves. The visitors’ coach Diego Simeone made four changes from Sunday’s match in Bilbao including handing Felix, who joined the side from Benfica for 126 million euros ($141 million) last summer, a start alongside Diego Costa in attack. Felix will return to the Portugese capital in August as UEFA announced the Champions League will be completed in Lisbon with a ‘final eight’ format after Atleti knocked holders Liverpool out of the competition in March. Left-back Renan Lodi had the best of the early chances as his whipped effort in the eighth minute was straight at goalkeeper Ruben Martinez.last_img read more

Hughes backs Crouch for England

first_imgMark Hughes thinks Peter Crouch could easily transfer his Stoke form onto the international stage if Roy Hodgson decides to call on the striker for the World Cup. Crouch has scored 22 goals in 42 England appearances, but he has been overlooked ever since Hodgson became coach of the national side. Hughes acknowledges that Crouch is very much an outsider for Hodgson’s 23-man squad for the tournament, but the Stoke boss has no doubt that the 33-year-old would impress in Brazil if called upon. “He has given us a focal point, and his link up play was brilliant today,” the Stoke manager said of Crouch, who has nine goals to his name this term. “He is an international-class player, he has proven that at international level. “He has a great record for England. Maybe the people in charge are looking for a similar type of player as effective as Pete. “Maybe his time has come and gone, but if he was asked to go I am sure he would go. “If anyone rang me up and wanted a view on whether or not I think Peter should go to the World Cup, I can obviously give them a very positive one.” Stoke went behind to an early Christian Benteke goal, but Odemwingie and Crouch scored within four minutes of each other before Steven Nzonzi and Geoff Cameron wrapped up the win. Hughes’ men never looked like surrendering the lead, thanks partly to the shocking defending of the home team in all four goals. Still, Stoke deserved credit for the way they opened up a team that eight days ago beat Chelsea at Villa Park. The third goal was the most impressive. Stoke strung a series of passes together before Marko Arnautovic released the ball to Nzonzi who slotted past Brad Guzan. Hughes feels such goals will go a long way to banishing the idea that Stoke are a long-ball team. “For the third goal, there was something like 18 or 19 passes before the ball was in the back of the net and we are not too renowned for passages of play like that,” the Welshman said. “I hope (the long-ball tag) is something in the past now because we deserve a bit more credit. We do try and get it down on the floor and keep possession. “Maybe people will sit up and take notice of what we are trying to do. “We have been under the radar a little bit in the last seven or eight games but today was a statement from us in terms of what we want to do this season. “We are just happy that people are noticing there is a little bit of a change in style. At the moment it’s working and it’s for the better.” Villa boss Paul Lambert hit out at his players for a performance which in no way resembled the one they put on against the Barclays Premier League leaders last weekend. “The whole performance was unlike us,” the Scot said, “We looked lethargic. We never got going and you try and get a goal back and it just never materialised.” Lambert was not helped when he had to bring Karim El Ahmadi and Andreas Weimann off in the first half due to injury. “Andy had a severe dead leg that he couldn’t shake off,” Lambert said. “We will have to see how he is. Karim has a little thigh strain.” Crouch was one of many Stoke players to star in Sunday’s 4-1 victory at Aston Villa. The 6ft 7in frontman set Peter Odemwingie up for Stoke’s first goal and also got himself on the scoresheet as Stoke claimed their first away win since August. Press Associationlast_img read more

Clarets’ Armstrong bid rejected

first_imgBurnley have had an offer turned down by Dundee United for midfielder Stuart Armstrong. He said: “Different offers have been in for players. One’s been rejected today. “He was more of a development style player in our world – a good young player we think who could learn with us. That won’t happen now, by the looks of things. “We’ve had offers in for more recognised players that haven’t got over the line at the moment, but we’ll see where that takes us.” Burnley’s only deal so far this month has been the signing on a permanent basis of defender Michael Keane, who had been on loan at Turf Moor from Manchester United. “If you’re a club that can constantly throw money at things, it usually gets to happen,” said Dyche of the transfer market. “There is a limit to certain players and how much we can pay for them. We’re trying to be realistic within that. We’re not going for players who are way out of our league and hoping for the best. “I’ve been through it a few times now. It’s been quite quiet really, certainly in the middle market. Sometimes it takes one to knock another situation on so we’ll see how it develops over the next few days. “There’s no guarantees to it. We’ve been confident before. We were confident during the summer on certain things, even to the point of being told that it was definitely going to happen and then things change.” Manager Sean Dyche does not now expect to pursue a deal for the 22-year-old, with Celtic also reported to have had a bid turned down. Dyche is still hoping to add to his squad before Monday night’s deadline and has several irons in the fire. Dyche’s side will play their first game for two weeks when they visit Sunderland on Saturday. The break has meant they have had to wait to try to make amends after letting two-goal leads slip in successive defeats by Tottenham and Crystal Palace. Dyche insisted the disappointment is firmly behind them but admitted two weeks off was not something they particularly welcomed. “It’s parked, it’s gone, we move forwards,” he said of the two losses. “We like to play, we like the idea of the games spinning around. We had it last year and you get used to that. “It’s just finding that balance between rest, recuperation but also the work that needs to be done to make sure the players are topped up. “We know how good they are physically. It’ll probably be a surprise to people the amount of rest we do give them.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Other Sports Amit Panghal, Indian Army soldier and boxer, dedicates gold medal to CRPF jawans killed in Pulwama

first_imghighlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Other Sports News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Amit Panghal won the gold medal in the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta.Panghal won his second gold in the Strandja Memorial Boxing tournament.The Pulwama terror attack killed 40 CRPF jawans. New Delhi: “It hurt a little bit more because I belong to the armed forces,” said Indian boxer Amit Panghal as he dedicated his gold medal at the prestigious Strandja Memorial Tournament to the CRPF personnel who lost their lives in the Pulwama terror attack. The Asian Games gold-medallist claimed a second consecutive top finish at one of Europe’s oldest boxing competitions when he out-punched Kazakhstan’s Temirtas Zhussupov in the summit clash in Sofia, Bulgaria on Tuesday night. He was India’s lone male boxer to grab a medal at the just-concluded edition. Speaking to PTI on Wednesday, the 23-year-old Naib Subedar in the Indian Army said the Pulwama attack, which claimed the lives of 40 CRPF personnel, was on his mind through the tournament. The deadly strike took place the day the Indian boxing team left for Sofia last week.”Main khud army se hun, dard isliye thoda zyada tha (It hurt a little bit more because I belong to the armed forces). I was desperate for a medal because I wanted to dedicate it to the heroes who lost their lives in Pulwama,” Panghal said over phone.”This was my mindset the moment I got to know of the attack after landing here.”India finished with seven medals — three gold, a silver and three bronze medals — in Sofia. Among the women gold-winners, Nikhat Zareen (51kg) had also dedicated her medal to the slain CRPF men. “I was in touch with my family members during the tournament and they also told me that I had to win a medal in honour of the Pulwama martyrs. I was doubly motivated by this thought,” Panghal said.The motivation did come in handy as Panghal battled weighty matters in the run-up to the main draw. “Weight nahi aa raha tha yahaan thand ke kaaran (It was difficult to get the right weight because of the cold here). So, I went to bed hungry for a couple of days, trained the next morning to ensure that I was ready at the time of weigh-in on the day of draws,” Panghal said.”It was tough but worth every bit of the trouble because in the end, I could accomplish what I wanted,” he added referring to the sub-zero temperatures in Sofia which made it difficult to shed weight. Panghal’s campaign looked effortless but the boxer from Rohtak said the competition he faced this time was certainly a notch higher than what he came across in the 2018 edition.”…Russia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine fielded their strongest line-ups. This was not the case last time. The guy I fought in the final was the bronze-medallist from the Asian Games last year and had won in India during a World Series of Boxing bout,” he said. “I had not fought with him earlier as he was not in my half during the Asian Games but I knew I could do it,” he added. Speaking of weight and competition, Panghal revealed that Strandja was his last competition in the 49kg division. “I have no choice but to jump to 52kg because 49kg is not there in the Olympic program for Tokyo 2020 and I can’t afford to skip that,” he said.”This was my last competition in 49kg and I will be competing in the 52kg category if I am selected for the Asian Championships. It is going to be very tough for me because 49kg is a weight class that I am comfortable in,” he explained.                  Asked about the specific challenges that the transition would bring with it, Panghal said, “I am going to need a lot more power and it is not going to be easy but I am confident of making it happen.”The Asian Championships are scheduled to be held in April 19 to 27 in Bangkok, Thailand. In a first, the competition for both men and women will be held simultaneously.   “Amit will start his 52kg stint with a tournament in Germany which is round-robin so there is no pressure of a medal. We will see how it goes for him there and figure out,” said national chief coach CA Kuttappa.last_img read more

Memorial for Ph.D. student to be held today

first_imgThe USC School of Social Work will hold a memorial service Wednesday to remember Jennifer Paek, a Ph.D. candidate who died in New York last Wednesday.Remembered · Jennifer Paek (right), pictured here with a friend, was studying health disparity and policy at USC’s School of Social Work. – Photo courtesy of Young Sun Lee. (Corrected 4/14/2010 to reflect the correct identification of Paek.)The service for Paek, who was in her second year at USC, will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Social Work Center Gabilan Courtyard.“She was just a really, really beautiful person,” said Minah Kim, Paek’s close friend and classmate in the Ph.D. program. “So many people were surrounded by Jennifer’s love.”Paek was born in New York on October 7, 1979, but was raised in Southern California. She received a bachelor’s degree in Asian American studies from UCLA before moving on to receive a master’s of social welfare from the same school.“She was very passionate about learning, education and educating as a social worker,” Kim said.In her doctoral work at USC, Paek focused on health disparities, health policy, case advocacy for vulnerable populations and end-of-life care. According to Prisca Wu, who has been friends with Paek since high school, Paek was heavily involved in the community and focused on advocating for people without a voice.“She was already taking care of people before the social worker program,” Wu said. “She was always looking to see how she could make things better for other people.”The owner of two dogs, Paek combined her passion for social work with her love of animals in her veterinary hospital social work project, said Brooklyn Levine, who developed the program with Paek.The program established a philosophy of caring for an animal and its guardian or family to best serve both their needs and outcomes.“Jennifer wanted to alleviate the strain on professionals doing good work in a difficult economy and create new jobs in an unexplored niche in Los Angeles,” Levine said in a written reflection about Paek.Friends said Paek was caring, warm and generous and had a great sense of humor.“She was really thoughtful and [was] always talking about you,” Wu said. “[She] put herself way last and would remember specific things about your life.”Paek was known for putting together care packages for her classmates during midterms or finals, Kim said.“She was like a big sister to me,” Kim said. “Because I’m international, she was always correcting my English … She told me what restaurant is better for me [and] where to go for sightseeing.”Wu echoed this sentiment.“She just had such a way of including all her friends into her life,” Wu said. “By extension, all of her friends were like a family.”According to The Brooklyn Paper, a local newspaper in New York, Paek died after jumping from the roof of the 51-story building she lived in. The paper reported that Paek had left suicide notes in the apartment she shared with her husband.Paek is survived by her parents Chung Ja and Nam Paek and her husband, Luis Diaz.Correction: Jennifer Paek was originally identified in the photo caption as the woman on the left, but is the woman on the right.last_img read more

Safdar, singles players lead Syracuse past Florida State for 2nd win of season

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 9, 2014 at 12:39 pm When Komal Safdar began the final set of her match, she was aware of what was at stake.A victory would seal a come-from-behind win for Syracuse, and secure the team’s second victory over a ranked opponent in the past week. A loss would elongate the team’s early season struggles. Instead of faltering at the end of the match, Safdar was determined to put all of the pressure on No. 25 Florida State. And her aggression paid off, as the Orange stunned the Seminoles on the heels of her racket. “This was a huge match for us all-around,” Safdar said. “Everyone competed and everyone is believing in each other despite how we started the season.”After losing the doubles point, Syracuse (2-8, 2-3 Atlantic Coast) rallied to win four of the six singles matches to defeat Florida State (8-5 3-2) 4-3 on Friday at Drumlins Country Club. The Orange was on the ropes in its final two singles matches, yet managed to secure the victory. Safdar clinched the win for the Orange by defeating Majlena Pedersen in three sets, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFreshman Valeria Salazar started the rally for the Orange after her 6-2, 1-6, 7-5, win over Kristina Schleich in three sets. After losing a 5-2 lead in the final set, Salazar kept her composure and won the next two points en route to the victory.But Salazar was quick to give Safdar the credit for the team’s win. “She was determined to win,” Salazar said. “She had the momentum and the confidence to win, and we were there supporting her the whole way.”Salazar’s victory set the table for Safdar to decide the team’s fate in the final match. After Safdar lost the first set to Pedersen, it appeared that the Seminoles’ talent would finally prove too much for the Orange to overcome. The outbreak of chants from the Syracuse bench and home crowd drowned out Florida State’s momentum in the match, though. The home-court advantage fueled Safdar to respond in the second set with a 6-3 victory.“I knew everyone here in the Syracuse community was supporting me,” Safdar said. “The crowd was bringing energy that you aren’t going to get away from home.”The last set between both competitors was a microcosm of the day. Safdar managed to gain to gain a pivotal one-point lead in the third set before the two exchanged serving wins. The Syracuse junior used her versatility to cover every inch of the tennis court. Eventually, Safdar’s effort took its toll on Pedersen, who was unable to earn the final point on Friday afternoon.The players immediately rushed to Safdar, screaming loudly and lifting her on their shoulders. Syracuse head coach Shelley George joined in on the celebration, recognizing the importance of this hard fought win.“I definitely think it was a team effort. We let Florida State know that they were in for a fight,” George said. “This is our house. Go out and own the court.”Syracuse now has a two-week break before traveling to face the Miami Hurricanes on March 21 — which will be an opportunity for the team to rest both mentally and physically from conference play.But Safdar said the team won’t stay content with the recent success for long. When asked to describe the effort of her teammates, she pegged this Syracuse team as one that can start doing damage in the future. “In my third year with this program, this is the most fighting team out here,” Safdar said. “Every single person on our team is a warrior.” Commentslast_img read more
