The club have been brilliant.”Branislav Ivanovic’s last-minute header gave the Blues a 2-1 victory against a Benfica side that dominated the first half but always looked vulnerable at the back.It meant Chelsea became only the fourth club to win all three major European trophies.Lampard said: “It’s been an amazing time for all of us involved. Talk about ups and downs in the last two years! But this is a big up.“We’re a group, a team, and it was tight tonight after the long season we’ve had. No-one deserves this more than Ivanovic – he has been fantastic.“You make your own luck, and we stick together in this group. The club deserve it.”And Ivanovic declared: “It’s a great feeling. This team deserved this, because we have had a very difficult season and a lot of games.“In the end, today was a very hard game and Benfica played very well. But we scored from set pieces and work very hard preparing that part of our game.

Round-up: Hazard back, Conte says he trusts Chelsea youngster, good news for QPR, Bees out

first_img Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook Embed from Getty ImagesAntonio Conte has confirmed that Eden Hazard is set to return to the Chelsea starting line-up for Wednesday’s EFL Cup match against Nottingham Forest.Hazard, who has not started a game for the Blues this season, has been eased back following ankle surgery.AdChoices广告Chelsea boss Conte said: “I think for Eden now is the right moment to start the game and try to play the whole game. He is ready to start.“I think we have managed his situation very well. In my career I was injured a lot of times and I have a bit of experience about this situation.” Young duo might also play Embed from Getty Images Conte also indicated that Kenedy and Charly Musonda could also feature in the game at Stamford Bridge.Kenedy has not played this term, having been sent home from Chelsea’s pre-season tour of the Far East for posting an offensive message about China on social media during the squad’s stay there.“For sure tomorrow it could be a good opportunity for Musonda and for Kenedy,” Conte said.“He knows very well what happened in China. He made a mistake but I think everyone in life makes mistakes.“Now he is focused and working very well. He understands his mistake and he is ready to play.”Conte added that he believes Musonda is capable of making an impact at first-team level.Midfielder Musonda, 20, is in line for only his second senior appearance for the Blues.Conte said: “We are talking about a young player with a really good prospect, because you can see very clearly his talent.“Now he is working a lot to improve his strength and to be ready to make a big impact.“I trust Charly. It is important for a coach to trust a player.” Bees cup defeat Yoann Barbet missed a penalty as Brentford’s involvement in the Carabao Cup came to an abrupt end.

Youngsters Chris Mepham and Theo Archibald made their first-team debuts for the Bees. Boost for QPR Josh Scowen has returned to training and looks certain to be available for QPR’s game against Burton on Saturday.The midfielder, who has impressed since arriving from Barnsley in the summer, missed Saturday’s defeat at Middlesbrough after picking up a knock in last week’s game against Millwall.So too did Conor Washington, who has also trained and looks likely to return to the squad for this weekend’s match.Luke Freeman picked up a knock towards the end of the Boro game but is expected to be available against Burton.The news is a boost for Rangers given their recent injury problems.Captain Nedum Onuoha might be out for four months with a torn hamstring, while fellow defenders Grant Hall, James Perch, Joel Lynch and Steven Caulker have also been unavailable. Roland-Jones inspires Middlesex Toby Roland-Jones was Middlesex’s hero with both bat and ball but limped out of the action late on during an action-packed opening day at Lord’s.The England paceman first dug his side out of trouble, hitting 53 and sharing an eighth-wicket stand of 102 with Ollie Rayner (52 not out), as Middlesex recovered from 89-7.He then took 2-30, removing Haseeb Hameed and Shivnarine Chanderpaul, to help reduced Lancashire to 113-5 as 15 wickets fell inside 96 overs.last_img read more

Wolves keen on 11-goal Ligue 1 surprise, club want ‘at least…

first_imgThe more time passes, the likelier it is Emiliano Sala leaves FC Nantes either in January or in the summer depending on the offers received in the next couple of months. Last week, we relayed information from a former employee of the Ligue 1 club, who stated a renewal for the Argentine was pretty much impossible as the player wanted to leave “ASAP”, and now a new club have started looking at him: Wolverhampton.Starting off rather well in the Premier League, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side’s form has taken a turn for the worse recently, and goals have been hard to come by.Scoring just four in their last six games, perhaps it isn’t a surprise to see Wolves be interested in a player who has scored 11 goals in the league so far this season, just two fewer than the whole Wolves team have managed to put together.Embed from Getty ImagesThis information is given to us by Ouest-France, Nantes’ local newspaper, who also explain it will take a lot of money to convince the Ligue 1 side to part ways with their star in January.Waldemar Kita, the club’s president, is quoted as saying they’ll need to see offers of ‘at least €30m’, which seems a lot, even for a club such as Wolves who haven’t been shy about opening their chequebook in the past.We’ll have to see how true to his word he Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

The last minute tragedy reached Bulgaria in Wales – Football World…

first_imgBulgaria lost 0: 1 away to Wales in a match of the League of Nations. The last-minute tragedy caught up with the “lions” in Cardiff, after a few days ago our team missed the victory against Ireland in the same way. In the fourth minute of added time, reserve Neco Williams brought the three points to the “dragons”. The 19-year-old talent of Liverpool intercepted a cross by Jonathan Williams with his head after he was dropped by Delev.Both teams entered the match quite cautiously and the goalkeepers were bored in the first 10 minutes. Only the tension in our penalty area in the 6th minute after a corner will be remembered, but the chief referee ruled a violation against Georgi Georgiev.Gradually, the hosts prevailed in possession of the ball, but our national team kept them away from the penalty area.The first opportunity for the “lions” opened in the 24th minute. Galin Ivanov received the ball from the left, faked an opponent and looked for the far corner. However, a rebound went to the defender’s feet and sent the ball into the corner. During the cross from the corner kick Christian Dimitrov was detained in the penalty area, but the claims for a penalty were ignored.Wales responded with a quick attack on the right flank, topped by Gareth Bale. The Real Madrid star shot without delay, but his shot was blocked.A mistake by Georgi Kostadinov in the 36th minute allowed Bale to launch a new attack on the right, which ended with a dangerous cross in the penalty area, but Christian Dimitrov hit the ball with his head.Two minutes before the end, the Bulgarian captain Georgi Kostadinov received the first yellow card in the match. Galin Ivanov was pressed by Connor Roberts and his ball was taken away. This forced Kostadinov to stop him with a tactical violation, which brought him an official warning.Despite the long distance Gareth Bale shot directly from the direct free kick, but Georgiev was not difficult and calmly caught the ball. Seconds before the end of the first half Christian Dimitrov made a mistake in clearing the ball, returning with his head to Brooks, but his will went far from the door. source: getty imagesThe second half started with a much more aggressive game of the “dragons” and this led to several shifts in the penalty area in front of Georgiev. However, with joint efforts, the “tricolors” did not allow serious dangers.In the 58th minute, James jumped behind our side on the left flank and sent a convenient pass in the penalty area to Gareth Bale. However, his ball was killed and no shot was taken. Shortly afterwards, Matthew Smith received a yellow card for a foul on Goranov.Half an hour before the end, both coaches made their first shifts. Dimitar Iliev replaced Kraev, and Robson-Sanu replaced Moore in the Dragons’ team.The “Lions” made their first shot after the break only in the 63rd minute. Nedelev centered from a corner and Karabelov did not find the outline of the door with his head. Daniel James broke from the left in the 68th minute and after a double pass with Brooks came out in a good position, but his shot was saved by Georgiev.The hosts were very close to scoring in the 75th minute, but luck was on our side. A great diagonal pass from Gareth Bale put the ball on the feet of James, who without delay returned to the attacking Brooks, but his shot hit the door assembly on the outside.8 minutes before the end of the match, the 18-year-old midfielder of Slavia Filip Krastev made his debut for the “tricolors”.In the first minute of added time Gareth Bale made a dangerous shot from a distance, but the ball went over the door. And when everyone was waiting for the last referee’s signal, the ice shower for Bulgaria came. Reserve Neco Williams used a moment of inattention in our penalty area and headed to bring victory to Wales.WALES – BULGARIA 1: 01: 0 Neco Williams 90 + 4WALES (4-2-3-1): Wayne Hennessy – Conor Roberts (65 – Neco Williams), Tom Locker, Ethan Ampadu, Ben Davis – Mathieu Smith, Joe Morel – David Brooks (76 – Jonathan Williams), Gareth Bale-Captain, Daniel James – Kiefer Moore Robson-Canoe)Breeder Ryan Giggs🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿#WALBUL #TogetherStronger– Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@Wales) September 6, 2020BULGARIA (4-2-3-1): Georgi Georgiev – Cicinho, Christian Dimitrov, Anton Nedyalkov, Ivan Goranov – Georgi Kostadinov-captain, Yanis Karabelov – Birsent Karageren, Galin Ivanov (70 – Spas Delev), Todor Nedelev (82 – Filip Krastev) – Bozhidar Kraev (61 – Dimitar Iliev)Breeder Georgi Dermendzhiev Referee: Fabio Verissimo, PortugalYellow cards: Georgi Kostadinov (43, B), Matthew Smith (60, U), Neka Williams (85, U)Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff Follow us anywhere and anytime with the mobile application of You can download it from Google Play, App Store and AppGallery.last_img read more

Rawlins half-century in vain for Sussex 2nds

first_imgLONDON, CMC – Bermudian left-hander Delray Rawlins smashed 62 but was unable to prevent Sussex slipping to a 37-run defeat against visitors Middlesex, in a 50-overs Second XI South Trophy match at the Blackstone Academy Ground near Brighton. Rawlins, 20, who made his first-class debut in the County Championship in April last year but has since struggled to earn a regular spot in the first team, struck four sixes and five fours in his 83-minute knock at number four in Tuesday’s game as Sussex were dismissed for 245 in the 48th over in pursuit of Middlesex’s 282 for eight.Rawlins came to the wicket at 22 for two in the fifth over and departed in the 24th over when the score was 130 for five.Earlier, the visitors’ total was built around opener Max Holden’s 134, despite fast bowler Abi Sakande’s five for 37 from 10 overs. Slow bowler Rawlins was out of luck with the ball, conceding 59 runs from his seven overs. Tim Murtagh was the pick of the Middlesex attack with five for 36 from eight overs.Middlesex are top of the table after winning all six of their matches, while Sussex are bottom with just one win from six, a two-wicket victory last week over Kent.last_img read more

American tourist vacationing in Turks and Caicos shot in armed robbery, medically evacuated

first_imgPatiwit/Thinkstock(HOLLYWOOD, Fla.) — An American tourist vacationing with his family in Turks and Caicos had to be medically evacuated to Florida after he was shot during an armed burglary Friday night.The Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force said a 57-year-old U.S. citizen was shot by a masked gunman while in his vacation villa in the Leeward residential area of of Providenciales, an island in the Turks and Caicos archipelago, around 10:12 p.m. local time Friday. The man suffered from a single gunshot wound to his upper body and was immediately transported to a local hospital, where police said he was listed in stable condition.A spokesperson for the law firm Kirkland & Ellis confirmed to ABC News on Sunday that a partner in the firm, Mike Jones, was shot.“Mike Jones, a partner in our Washington, D.C., office, was shot during a burglary while on vacation with his family,” the firm said. “Mike was treated successfully and is in stable condition and is expected to fully recover. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mike and his family, and we look forward to welcoming him back after his recovery.”Jones was later medically evacuated to the United States and taken to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Florida, where he was listed in stable condition Sunday morning, hospital spokesperson Lourdes Rodriguez told ABC News.Commissioner of the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force, James Smith, told ABC News that investigators believe at least two suspects forcibly entered the private villa intending to rob the property. The villa was secured with an alarm system and a security guard, whom police later found had been “lightly bound” at the scene with his own shoe laces, Smith said.At least one of the suspects was confronted by Jones inside the home and then a shot was fired.“What we don’t know is why a shot was discharged, what led up to that shot being discharged,” Smith told ABC News.The suspects fled the scene soon after with a laptop they had pilfered from the home. They remain at large. Investigators are reviewing footage from security cameras in the villa in hopes of identifying the suspects, Smith said.The Turks and Caicos Islands Ministry of Tourism, Environment, Heritage and Culture said it is aware of the incident but urged residents and visitors not to be alarmed.“It is with regret, that we report any situation involving the safety or well-being of residents or guests to our country. While our country remains safe, any acts of crime against residents or tourists are unacceptable,” the ministry said in a statement Saturday. “Our residents and visitors should continue to enjoy our islands, as we will not be intimidated by acts of cowardice.”A biography for Jones on Kirkland & Ellis’s website describes him as an adjunct professor of trial advocacy at Georgetown University.The shooting comes just five weeks after another American tourist was shot in Turks and Caicos. On June 23, Kevin Newman of Alabama was robbed at gunpoint and shot in the Grace Bay of Providenciales while vacationing with his wife and son. Newman, who was seriously injured, was taken to a local hospital, but had to be medically evacuated to the United States for further treatment.Turks and Caicos Islands Gov. John Freeman acknowledged an “increased incidence of violent crimes” in his country but said it is related to wider challenges.“Recent incidents of aggravated burglaries have again given rise to understandable public concern. There are immediate but also wider dimensions to the increased incidence of violent crimes. Our thoughts — as always — are with the victims of recent crimes and their families,” Freeman said in a statement Saturday. “The effort to deal with violent crime is ongoing. More resources are being dedicated to security needs and more will be available in the future. And all of us with responsibilities for security are committed to seeing the task through.”The U.S. Department of State has not issued any travel advisories for Turks and Caicos and has called the crime rate there low but increasing.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

“America’s Got Talent” recap: Laverne Cox sends a nine-year-old-singer straight to the live rounds as seven more acts advance

first_imgJustin Lubin/NBC(NEW YORK) — The Judge Cuts continued on Tuesday’s edition of America’s Got Talent, with seven more of the acts that made it through the auditions advancing to the Live Rounds.Dancer Oscar Hernandez; dance troupes Brobots & Mandroids and Diavolo; roller skating duo Billy and Emily England; singer Mike Yung; and comedian Preacher Lawson all advanced. Nine-year-old singer Celine Tam was sent straight to the Live Rounds via “the Golden Buzzer.”Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Mel B were back behind the judges’ table to offer their opinions and decide which acts would advance. Helping them this week was Laverne Cox.Here’s a rundown of some of Tuesday’s highlights:34-year-old dancer Oscar Hernandez is a choreographer who dreams of taking center stage. Backed by a group of cheerleaders, he strutted his stuff to “Bang Bang” by Jessie J featuring Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, and blew the judges away. Cox called the husky dancer, “Large and in charge.”56-year-old New York City subway singer Mike Yung tackled Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come.” Simon applauded Yung for having “paid your dues,” adding that he had such a great heart [and] such a great talent.”Dance ensemble Brobots & Mandroids — a few bodies shorter than last time because their parents wanted them to focus on school — brought the audience to life with their precision dance moves. Cox thought they were “hot”; Heidi declared they brought their “A” game and Simon said they had a “likeability” to them.Celine Tam, a nine-year-old with a powerhouse voice, belted out Michael Bolton’s “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” and brought everyone to their feet. Cox, who had earlier said she was looking for an act that blew her away, saw that in Tam, and hit her Golden Buzzer, sending the youngster straight to the Live Shows.Dance troupe Diavolo employs massive sets that they incorporate into their choreography. The concept of Tuesday’s routine was a moving train on which they performed their acrobatic moves. Cox enjoyed the act, but wondered if there was a place for them in the real world outside of the show.The judges loved Preacher Lawson’s brand of stand-up comedy, which combined physical humor with witty observations, this week about the pitfalls of online dating. Mel B said she didn’t want it to stop. Simon agreed, adding that Lawson had “star quality.”Brother and sister roller skating act Billy and Emily England thrilled with their daring lifts and spins. Heidi called them “the best act of the day.”The Judge Cuts conclude with Seal as the guest judge when America’s Got Talent returns Tuesday at 8 p.m. Eastern time on NBC.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Wakefield bounces back at Phoenix

first_imgToday we deviated from our usual format as the first prize was a free bungy jump.  The winner was Neil Harvey (16) with 36 points and the unfortunate loser with 39 points was Tony Wakefield (17) who played consistently well throughout his round.Note: Siam Country Resort, Restaurant & Bar is located just off Siam Country Club Rd, after going under the arch past the 7/11, turn right after 50 meters, with the venue on the left another 200 meters along.  Golf from here is generally played on Tuesday & Thursday, with the Resort hosting prompt presentations on both days.  As a PSC affiliated venue we welcome ALL golfers, including ladies & seniors (>60s) who have opted for the “Silver” tee option.  Call 089 2535440 (Willem Lasonder) for scheduling or enquiries. PSC Golf from Siam Country ResortTuesday, August 25, Greenwood – StablefordOn Tuesday we took the long road to Greenwood.  This is a very nice course and has been well maintained throughout the low season, in particular we found the greens were a good speed and running very true.It was a lonely feeling playing today as we had the course all to ourselves.  Our golf was the usual mix of highs and lows and despite having three 8’s on his card Paddy Devereux (h/cap 22) emerged the surprising winner with 37 points.Thursday, August 27, Phoenix – StablefordIt was the short road to nearby Phoenix on Thursday, which again was in very good condition with quick greens.  The caddies were well turned out with nice new push trolleys, a change from the usual bit of old scrap iron they usually have to drag round most courses.last_img read more
