FIFA World Cup 2014: Luis Suarez double puts England on brink of elimination

first_imgLuis Suarez scored two goals as Uruguay hammered England 2-1 in the FIFA World Cup, Group D tie Luis Suarez scored twice to give Uruguay a 2-1 victory over England at the World Cup on Thursday, making an instant impact on his return from injury. The striker lashed in the winner in the 85th minute in the Group D match after seeing his first-half opener canceled out by Wayne Rooney.Suarez, who hadn’t played for more than a month after undergoing knee surgery, is the Uruguay player who knows this England side best, having played for Liverpool for more than three years.And by taking his World Cup tally to five goals, Suarez took the gloss off Rooney finally scoring his first on football’s biggest stage at his third tournament.Rooney tapped the ball home from close range in the 75th minute after connecting with Glen Johnson’s pass. England lost its opener 2-1 to Italy, but took some consolation from the impressive performances of Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge.Team Line-ups(from):England: Joe Hart; Leighton Baines, Phil Jagielka, Gary Cahill, Glen Johnson; Danny Welbeck, Raheem Sterling, Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson, Wayne Rooney; Daniel SturridgeUruguay: Fernando Muslera; Alvaro Pereira, Diego Godin, Jose Maria Gimenez, Martin Caceres; Cristian Rodriguez, Nicolas Lodeiro, Egidio Arevalo Rios, Alvaro Gonzalez; Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavanilast_img read more

Manchester United to take up option to extend Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s contract

first_imgManchester United will exercise their option to extend veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s contract for a second season at Old Trafford, manager Jose Mourinho said on Wednesday.The 35-year-old Ibrahimovic, who joined on a free transfer in July, has had a mixed start to his United career despite scoring eight goals in 17 games in all competitions.”Zlatan’s situation is simple: he has a one-plus-one contract with the club and we will execute the option of a second season,” Mourinho told reporters.The former Sweden captain, who was suspended for Saturday’s 1-1 Premier League draw at home to Arsenal, ended a six-game goal drought in a win over Swansea City earlier this month.”He’s happy, committed and loving his life as a football player at United,” Mourinho added.”This is probably the last big challenge of his wonderful career, so it is perfect for him to be here for the next 18 months and then he owns the decision of his future.”Ibrahimovic said the extension is “automatic after a while”, but the criteria for it to be triggered has yet to be fulfilled.”We didn’t even have any discussions. I feel good, I feel fresh, I feel like now I’ll probably take a second year,” he said.”I want to be honest with myself and I don’t want to waste time. The second year goes automatic after a while, there’s no word from me and no word from them. If it continues like this then it is a yes.”Ibrahimovic also leapt to the defence of Paul Pogba, who returned to United from Juventus for a world record fee of 89 million pounds ($110.07 million) in August, saying the France international needs more time to find his feet at the club.advertisementPogba has yet to light up the Premier League, scoring just twice in 11 games, as the powerful midfielder struggles to cope with the pace and intensity of English football.”There is big pressure on him because people expect magic in a short time instead of being realistic,” said Ibrahimovic.United, who are third in their Europa League group, host second-placed Feyenoord on Thursday before facing West Ham United in the league three days later.last_img read more

Ranji Trophy semifinals, Day 2 wrap: Gautam Gambhir hundred drives Delhi, Karnataka ride Karun Nair ton

first_imgGautam Gambhir’s patient hundred helped Delhi reach a commanding 271/3 against Bengal on Day 2 of their Ranji Trophy semifinal in Pune.In Kolkata, Karun Nair smashed an unbeaten hundred as Karnataka finished the second day of their semifinal against Vidarbha with a 109-run first innings lead.Both semifinals were highlighted by two men trying to make a comeback into the Indian Test team. Gambhir and Nair were both part of the Test squad last season but they were eventually phased out.Nair, who had become only the second Indian to score a Test triple hundred, was unable to repeat his magic in the series against Australia and was soon out in the cold. His hundred for Karnataka, therefore, could not have come at a more appropriate time. He is not in the Test squad for the South Africa Tests but runs in key domestic matches will at least keep him in focus in a year where India play several overseas Tests.DELHI SET TO TAKE THE LEAD VS BENGALWith Bengal scoring a below par 286 in their first essay, they are sure to concede first innings lead.The only positive aspect for Bengal was final session where Delhi scored only 51 runs losing three wickets including Gambhir (127 off 216 balls) off Mohammed Shami.Gambhir was an epitome of calmness during his 42nd first-class hundred in company of Chandela (113 off 192 balls), who is playing only his third first-class match.The manner in which Gambhir-Chandela duo humiliated a Bengal attack comprising Shami (23.2-3-83-1) and Ashok Dinda (18-2-86-1) looked pedestrian.advertisementThe best part about Gambhir this season has been his attitude. He has remain attached with a goal of guiding Delhi with crucial runs yet remained uninvolved like an isolated island.A pull in front of the square followed by a square cut played on the rise off Shami set the tone.There was no stopping Gambhir as the sparse crowd egged him on.KARNATAKA TAKE CRUCIAL LEAD VS VIDARBHAReuters PhotoNair’s unbeaten 148 ensured Karnataka take a vital 109-run first innings lead over Vidarbha.Resuming at the overnight score of 36 for three, Nair hit 20 fours and one six in his stellar knock and batted all the three sessions.Nair thwarted an onslaught from young Vidarbha pacer Rajneesh Gurbani, who returned with his third successive five-wicket haul (5/90).The second Indian to score a triple century in Tests, Nair, found a fine ally in his skipper R Vinay Kumar (20 not out) as the duo batted sensibly amid the ruins in an unbroken 69-run ninth wicket partnership that took Karnataka’s lead past 100.Karnataka were 294 for eight when bad light stopped play at 93 overs with three more days left in play.Bowling with a short run-up, South Africa-bound India pacer Umesh Yadav (2/71) gave Vidarbha their first breakthrough at the stroke of lunch ending Nair’s overnight partnership with CM Gautam (73 off 139 balls).The Karnataka wicketkeeper slashed a delivery straight to deep point after a fine knock that was laced with eight boundaries.Karnataka looked to go the Vidarbha way in the post-lunch session as Gurbani hit the deck hard and swung the ball to take three wickets for 24 runs in his superb third spell of 9-0-49-3.Stuart Binny (4), Shreyas Gopal (7) and K Gowtham (1) were all dismissed cheaply as Karnataka were tottering at 198 for seven at one stge in reply to Vidarbha’s 185.Binny lasted 12 balls and edged a beautiful outswinger behind the stumps, while Gowtham was deceived brilliantly by a slower one as the batsman mistimed a drive straight to gully.But Nair stood tall to brighten the eight-time champions’ bid for their third final in five seasons.(With PTI inputs)last_img read more
