NPFL: Why Plateau United suffered defeat in Katsina – Media Officer

first_imgRelatedPosts NPFL: Coach Dogo leaves Sunshine Stars NFF sanctions NPFL 2019/2020 final table Plateau United dedicates continental ticket to fans Albert Dakup, the Media Officer of Nigeria Professional Football League side, Plateau United FC of Jos, has blamed defensive error for the club’s defeat in the hands of Katsina United FC in week 13 match of the tournament. Dakup gave the explanation in an interview with News Agency Nigeria on Friday in Jos. NAN reports that Katsina United had defeated Plateau United 1-0 in the NPFL encounter on Wednesday in Katsina. According to the media officer, Plateau United played better even after conceding the goal as early as 14 minutes into the match, but that Katsina United had home support to their advantage. He also attributed the defeat to the home side’s “ground being their fortress”, adding that the turf was a difficult ground to get result from. “Our boys played well even after conceding the goal as early as 14 minutes into the match, but in a game of such nature points are very important. What counts at the end of the day is who won the game. “We lost largely because of a defensive error. When you are playing away from home, you need to tighten things at the back; you won’t leave anything to chance. “It is not easy playing away and that ground in Katsina is a very difficult place to get result from. The highest you can get is to pick a draw. “But even after conceding the early goal, our boys did not relent, they created a lot of chances but didn’t convert them. “But one thing is clear, the team is still moving stronger and we are on course,” he said. The spokesman called on the team’s fans and people of Plateau to exercise patience, adding that by the time the club was done with the first round, it will be better. He expressed optimism that the team would beat Akwa United FC in its week 14 home clash.Tags: Albert DakupKatsina United FCnpflPlateau Unitedlast_img read more

McGrane sets the standard

first_img McGrane, whose sole European Tour victory to date in the 2008 China Open was achieved in similar wet and windy weather, recorded three birdies and no bogeys to reach eight under par at Kennemer Golf Club. The 42-year-old began the day four shots off the lead, but with the leaders getting the worst of the conditions he was just one off the lead when he reached the sanctuary of the clubhouse. Home favourite Joost Luiten, France’s Julien Quesne and Spain’s Miguel Angel Jimenez shared the lead on nine under, Luiten having chipped in twice for birdie and Quesne carding 14 pars and just one birdie so far. Jimenez had shared the overnight lead with compatriot Pablo Larrazabal, but Larrazabal’s bid for a third European Tour title got off to a start as miserable as the weather. The 30-year-old ran up a triple-bogey seven on the opening hole and also dropped a shot on the fifth, and although he birdied the seventh another bogey on the 13th left him four off the lead. Jimenez had topped his third shot on the par-five second but rescued a par with a superb pitch, only to bogey the next after missing the green with his tee shot and failing to get up and down. The 49-year-old, already the oldest winner in European Tour history after his win in the Hong Kong Open aged 48 and 318 days last November, had to wait until the 13th for his first birdie of the day, but that was enough to reclaim a share of the lead. Ireland’s Damien McGrane defied the miserable conditions to card a superb 67 and set the clubhouse target in the third round of the KLM Open in Zandvoort.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Football News Italy Secure Spot In Euro 2020 Football, Spain Held By Norway

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Paris: Italy became the second team to qualify for Euro 2020 after a 2-0 win over Greece, while three-time champions Spain edged closer to the finals despite conceding a stoppage-time equaliser away to Norway. Chelsea midfielder Jorginho dispatched a second-half penalty as Italy, wearing green kits for just the second time in history, registered a seventh straight win in Group J on Saturday. The Azzurri, who failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, added a second in Rome on 78 minutes through a deflected strike from Juventus forward Federico Bernardeschi. Roberto Mancini’s side joined Belgium in the draw for next year’s finals, where Italy will play their first two group games at the Stadio Olimpico.  Spain dropped their first points in Group F as Joshua King converted a 94th-minute spot-kick to rescue a 1-1 draw for Norway following a foul by goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga on Omar Elabdellaoui. Sergio Ramos broke the Spanish international appearances record as he won his 168th cap in Oslo to overtake Iker Casillas. The visitors led when Saul Niguez slammed home from 20 yards moments after half-time but Spain were denied a seventh win in a row as King’s equaliser kept Norway in the running.  “It’s a real pain to lose points in the final seconds. It’s complicated to play against a team who knew that if they lost they were pretty much out,” said Spain captain Ramos. Norway last qualified for a major tournament at the 2000 European Championship and are fourth in the group, four points adrift of neighbours Sweden with three games to play. Sebastian Larsson netted two spot-kicks as Sweden cruised to a 4-0 rout of Malta to reclaim second place behind Spain.Marcus Danielson broke the deadlock on 11 minutes in Ta’ Qali and home skipper Andrei Agius also scored an own goal.  Romania remain a point behind Sweden following a 3-0 win in the Faroe Islands secured by second-half goals from George Puscas, Ionut Mitrita and Claudiu Keseru.  RELATEDKasper Schmeichel produced a series of excellent saves as Denmark defeated Switzerland 1-0 to pull level with the Republic of Ireland in Group D. Leicester City goalkeeper Schmeichel pulled off superb stops to deny Granit Xhaka, Admir Mehmedi and Ricardo Rodriguez before Yussuf Poulsen grabbed an 84th-minute winner for Denmark in Copenhagen. The Danes moved up to 12 points alongside group leaders Ireland, who drew 0-0 away to Georgia, while Switzerland are four points off the pace but with a game in hand.  “We battled for the whole game, there was a tremendous atmosphere. I think that was one of my best performances for Denmark,” said Schmeichel. Mick McCarthy’s Ireland couldn’t establish any momentum earlier in the day in Tbilisi and were left frustrated by wayward finishing from their few opportunities to break the deadlock. Bosnia and Herzegovina reignited their qualification hopes in Italy’s group with a 4-1 win over second-placed Finland.  Also Read | Belgium Seal Euro 2020 Spot After 9-0 Thrashing Of San Marino, Netherlands Beat Northern IrelandA brace from Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic and goals from Izet Hajrovic and Armin Hodzic pushed Bosnia to within two points of Finland.

Proposal tabled for audited GFA accounts to be published in national dailies

first_imgIn a bid to improve transparency and accountability in Ghana football, a proposal has been made to publish audited accounts of the Ghana Football Association in the dailies.The yearly audits will be conducted by independent and external auditors appointed by the Congress.“The auditors shall be appointed for a period of three years and be internationally recognised entities. This mandate may be renewed.“The audited accounts will be published in the national dailies in compliance with the Company Act of Ghana.”The amendment to the GFA’s statute was proposed at Thursday’s Extraordinary Congress.Other amendments considered at the Congress were the limiting of the tenure of the GFA President to two terms of four years each.The use of the GFA’s funds has been a major issue, particularly for football fans who believe the football management body’s finances have not been used judiciously enough.Erasing the doubtsPrior to the investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, several claims of corruption had been made against the Association and then-President Kwesi Nyantakyi.These allegations had been rebuffed constantly by the GFA but public perception remains largely negative.The GFA will hope that this new measure will erase any lingering doubts about the integrity of the Association.New statutesIn July, FIFA approved the recommendations made to the statutes of the GFA.Dr. Kofi Amoah had said earlier in an interview with GTV Sports that FIFA had assessed the recommendations for the statutes and what that would mean for the start of football in Ghana once again.Among the recommendations are a switch from President of the GFA to Chairman and the introduction of a Board to replace the Executive Committee.“We are going through the process of changing the statutes and FIFA has pretty much approved of what we have done. We have to place it before Congress for them to approve so we go for elections at the district, regional and national levels.After the elections, we will have a board to replace the Executive Committee and a Chairman to replace the President of the Association.”last_img read more

Serena bundled out of Auckland Classic tennis tournament

first_imgTop seed Serena Williams suffered a shock defeat to fellow American Madison Brengle in the second round of the WTA Auckland Classic on Wednesday to bring an abrupt end to her return to the court.In her first tournament since losing in the semi-finals of the US Open four months ago, Williams was bundled out 6-4, 6-7 (7/3), 6-4 by the world number 72 in a two-hour, 13-minute arm wrestle.Williams was looking for a bold showing in Auckland, both to prepare for the Australian Open and to celebrate her New Year engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.After blaming rust for her sluggish first-round win over Pauline Parmentier on Tuesday, Williams succumbed to repeated unforced errors against Brengle.She started with an ace only to follow up with a double fault which exemplified the inconsistent nature of her game in the swirling wind.Brengle dropped her second service game but at 4-1 down reeled off five consecutive games to take the first set. There was a service break each in the second set in which Williams held and lost five set points before going on to take the tie-break 7-3.The final set went with serve until Williams double faulted when serving to stay in the match at 4-5.last_img read more

Lakers’ Lonzo Ball wants Earl Watson as next UCLA coach

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I know he’s in the practice facility all the time in the summer, working with guys and helping teams out,” he said. “I just know him personally off the court. He’s helped me with a few things off the court business-wise. I think he’s a good person for the job.”RONDO STAYS ENGAGEDA familiar scene unfolded on Wednesday morning, as Rajon Rondo joined several of his teammates for a 3-point competition after shootaround.Given that he was still wearing a wrap around his right hand less than a week after getting surgery on his ring finger, it was probably a good development that Coach Luke Walton talked him out of the contest. Rondo gave a few efforts shooting left handed before walking off the practice court with Walton escorting him.

(AP Photo/Matt York)A presence around the UCLA program, Watson has been one of the reported candidates for the job, and Ball might be his biggest endorsement yet.Ball played one season under the most recently departed coach Steve Alford, who was fired Monday after a home loss to Liberty on Saturday which gave the Bruins a 7-6 start.

Steve Alford, he’s a good person, good coach,” he said. “He helped me a lot but the job’s open.”Ball said he didn’t see Watson too much when he played at UCLA – Watson was coaching the Suns at the time – but he’s developed an off-court relationship with him. He also acknowledged Watson might be able to connect with players hoping to turn pro quickly, the way Ball did. EL SEGUNDO — The only Bruin on the Lakers has an opinion on whom the next UCLA basketball coach should be.Lonzo Ball said after Wednesday morning’s shootaround that he would like to see Earl Watson, a former Bruin himself, get the head job.“I know Earl personally,” Ball said. “I think he has coaching experience in the league. Obviously, he went there, he’s alumni, so I think he’s a good fit.”Watson, 39, played 15 years in the NBA and coached the Phoenix Suns from February 2016 to just three games into the 2017-18 season. “I explained to him that it’s probably not a great idea for him to be doing shooting competitions,” Walton said with a grin. “But he’s going a little stir crazy over there. He loves playing the game and being hurt this much I think has really been tough on him. So we try to include him as much as we can in what we can.”That role has been frustratingly familiar to Rondo this season: He’s expected to be out until at least late January with his latest injury, after he already spent a 17-game stretch sitting out with a fractured right hand.The Lakers have tried to include him in team activities. As with his last injury stint, his perspective is arguably the most valuable contribution he can make at this point in his recovery.“He’s always talking trash, which kind of keeps the competitive level high, which we encourage around here,” Walton said. “But just using that energy and wisdom he has to share with some of his younger teammates.”last_img read more
