Ferguson confirms Rio is England bound

first_img Ferguson cast doubt on whether Ferdinand would accept Roy Hodgson’s call for the double-header against San Marino and Montenegro, expressing concern about disruption to the meticulous way the 34-year-old prepares. But after Ferdinand produced another controlled display in the 1-0 win over Reading, Ferguson confirmed he would report for England duty. “Rio will be joining up,” said United manager Ferguson. It is believed Hodgson has spoken to the United boss to offer assurances about how the player will be treated, which may include not using him in the San Marino game. Saturday night’s evidence showed why England want him involved, though, as Ferdinand sauntered upfield before finding Wayne Rooney – whose 21st-minute effort deflected in off Alex Pearce. “He broke into the midfield very well,” said Ferguson. “He has always been good at that. He doesn’t do it as much as he used to, of course, but it paid off for us.” United are clearly concerned about the effect this international break could have on their season considering they travel to Sunderland on March 30 for a lunchtime kick-off, and Chelsea 48 hours later for their FA Cup quarter-final replay. “We are making arrangements for some players to fly home by privately-hired jet after their matches to make sure they get home as quickly and as smoothly as possible,” said Ferguson. “Tiredness is a great leveller but we’ll do our utmost to make sure we field the freshest possible teams. Private planes are going to cost the club an awful lot of money but it is something we feel we have to do.” Ferguson made eight changes and handed Alex Buttner a rare start. The changes did not affect United’s winning momentum, even if their performance was, at times, disjointed. “It has been a great season for us,” said Ferguson. “Most of the time we have been playing well and obviously (this game) doesn’t reflect the 15 points ahead we are, it is the previous six months.” Press Associationcenter_img Sir Alex Ferguson watched Manchester United tighten their grip on the Premier League title before confirming Rio Ferdinand would join up with England next week.last_img read more

Arfield pens new Burnley deal

first_img The 25-year-old Scot, who had one year left on his remaining deal, has extended his stay at Turf Moor until the summer of 2017 after helping Burnley win promotion to the Barclays Premier League last season. Arfield said: “I’m delighted to have extended my deal with the club as this is where I want to be playing my football under this management. Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield has signed a new three-year contract with the club. Press Associationcenter_img “We had a great year last season and this is a club is going in the right direction so I’m made up to be a part of that. “I felt like I was getting back to my best last season and a massive factor behind that was because I was enjoying my football and I felt I could go out and express myself.” Arfield started out at Falkirk before joining Huddersfield for an undisclosed fee in the summer of 2010. He moved on to Burnley on a free transfer last summer and made 49 appearances in all competitions for Sean Dyche’s side, scoring nine goals. Arfield added: “We’ve got a great bunch of lads and there is a real togetherness in the squad, with everyone pulling in the same direction. “Obviously it is going to be a tough season ahead but if we stick together and work as hard as we did last year then I think we can have a successful season.” last_img read more

Bravo – Test series vital for redemption

first_imgDUBAI, United Arab Emirates CMC – Stylish left-hander Darren Bravo says West Indies will use the upcoming three-Test series against Pakistan to redeem themselves, following weak performances in the Twenty20 and One-Day International series recently.West Indies crashed to 3-0 series losses in both the T20s and the ODIs, to enter the Test phase of the tour without a single win in their six previous matches.“By all means, we didn’t really perform well in the shorter formats of the game (during this tour) and we’re disappointed about that,” Bravo said on the eve of the historic day/night first Test here.“Going into the Test match we will try our very best to put on a much better performance in the Test match series. The guys are working hard and we are really excited about going into this first Test match with the pink ball and the last two with the normal red ball.”As they did during the limited overs series against the likes of left-arm spinners Imad Wasim and Mohammed Nawaz, West Indies are expected to face a trial by spin during the Test series.And while Imad has been left out of the Pakistan squad, Nawaz, fellow left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar and leg-spinner Yasir Shah have been included, and are expected to pose a significant threat on the slow pitches in the UAE.Bravo said confidence would be a key factor in the batting approach by the Windies.“They are quality spinners … but I think it is very important to back your defence,” he explained.“If you like going over the top or if you like sweeping, if you like chipping to a particular spin bowler, you just have to go out there and back yourself.“I don’t think you have to go out there and play names. If you play names you’re going to be on the back foot from ball one. It’s just a matter of going out there and just being positive.”Bravo got a half-century during the second ODI in Sharjah and stroked 91 at the same venue last week in a three-day game against the Pakistan Cricket Board Patron’s XI, to find form ahead of the longer format.The last game was a day/night affair featuring the revolutionary pink ball and the 27-year-old said his knock had allowed him time to get comfortable with the unfamiliar pink ball.“It was a very good experience spending some time out in the middle and getting acclimatised to the pink ball,” Bravo said.“I believe early up it was a bit difficult to actually see the ball but at the end of the day, once I spent more time out in the middle it was much easier.”He added: “I think it is all about acclimatising and just believing in yourself at the end of the day. It’s cricket, the colour of the ball has changed. If from the inception (of cricket) we used to use a pink ball, if we were going to try a red ball at this point in time it would have been difficult as well so it doesn’t matter.“It’s about going out and acclimatising as quickly as possible and just accepting the challenge for what it is.”last_img read more

Calm De Villiers guides Proteas to win over New Zealand

first_img(REUTERS)-South Africa captain AB de Villiers calmly guided his side to a tense four-wicket victory over New Zealand with one ball to spare in a rain-affected first one-day international in Hamilton yesterday.De Villiers scored 37 not out and ensured number eight batsman Andile Phehlukwayo (29) kept a cool head as the pair put on 54 to reach their 208-run victory target and earn a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.The visitors, who had looked to be cruising to victory at 117-1 with 14 overs remaining courtesy of Quinton de Kock’s 69, lost four wickets in 14 balls to slump to 126-5 before Chris Morris helped his captain in a 30-run partnership.South Africa needed 22 runs from the final two overs and scored 10 from Trent Boult in the penultimate one which included a six from Phehlukwayo, who repeated the feat against Tim Southee in the final over.De Villiers belted Southee for four off the penultimate ball to clinch the victory.New Zealand made 207-7 after heavy rain over the past three days had forced a delay of more than three hours and reduced the match to 34-overs-a-side.“It was really tough out there,” De Villiers said. “The wicket turned so much in the evening. I thought it would skid on and get a bit flatter.“From past experience this becomes a good batting track in the evening and this was far from it.“I’ve never seen a wicket turn so much in my life.”New Zealand struggled for much of their innings particularly up front against tight bowling from Morris, who took the first four wickets as the hosts slumped to 82-4 in the 16th over.But Morris, who had figures of 4-24 from his first five overs, was then taken apart by Colin de Grandhomme (34 not out) and Southee (24 not out) in his final two.De Grandhomme and Southee blasted 51 runs from 23 balls, including smashing 38 runs from Morris’s final 12 deliveries to blow out his figures to 4-62 from seven overs.Bit of a shame really. We got ourselves into a good position but credit to South Africa, they adapted really well,” said New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, who top-scored for his side with 59.“We weren’t perfect with the bat but we felt that 5-1/2 a half an over would be tough to get on that surface and we had enough to make life difficult.”The second match is in Christchurch on Wednesday.NEW ZEALAND InningsD.

Martial Ends Man Utd’s Winless Away Run

first_imgEUROPAAnthony Martial’s first-half penalty proved decisive as Manchester United moved top of their Europa League group with victory at Partizan Belgrade.Martial, making his first start since August, sent Vladimir Stojkovic the wrong way from the spot after United’s 19-year-old defender Brandon Williams won the spot-kick. Anthony Martial Williams’ burst forward to draw a foul from Nemanja Miletic was one of the the few bright spots in an otherwise uninspiring United display.It helped ensure that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team won for the first time in 11 attempts away from home with their only shot on target.Williams and 18-year-old midfielder James Garner were among seven changes made by United’s Norwegian boss from the side that started in the Premier League against Liverpool on Sunday.And initially at least, United controlled possession, with Scott McTominay wastefully heading Juan Mata’s free-kick wide and Jesse Lingard’s curling effort striking the right-hand post.However, the hosts carved out chances of their own with on-loan Roma forward Umar Sadiq bending a 20-yard strike against the post.United keeper Sergio Romero superbly preserved the visitors’ lead by parrying Seydouba Soumah’s drive after the midfielder cut past Harry Maguire, as Solskjaer’s side hung on to record their first win on their travels since their Champions League victory over Paris St-Germain in March.While United monopolised the ball early on, their possession brought few chances against a Partizan side sitting fifth in the Serbian SuperLiga.Neither McTominay’s close-range header nor Lingard’s strike against the woodwork were a by-product of intricate, fast-paced attacking play – the former from a set-piece, the latter after the ball broke loose following a tackle by Aaron Wan-Bissaka.Under Solskjaer, United are arguably now geared more than ever towards counter-attacking, such are the limitations of his squad.Recently described as a ‘quagmire of mediocrity’ by a member of staff at the club, those restrictions were particularly evident in midfield where Garner made his first start alongside McTominay and Lingard.While Garner was neat and tidy, United’s midfield trio did little to address a familiar criticism among supporters – that the team simply does not possess the dynamism and creativity to breakdown perceived weaker opposition.Solskjaer’s team arrived in Serbia having mustered just three goals in their last 540 minutes of competitive football, and after failing to register a single shot on target during their goalless Group L draw at AZ Alkmaar.While this was marginally better, there was still very little in the way of invention.Wan-Bissaka and Mata struggled to deliver quality balls from wide positions, while Martial touched the ball just 18 times in his hour on the pitch, compared with Marcus Rashford managing 22 touches in a 30-minute cameo.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
