Barcelona through to Champions League last 16 despite Icardi leveller

first_imgMilan, Nov 7 (AFP) Barcelona qualified for the knockout stage of the Champions League despite Mauro Icardi snatching a late 1-1 draw for Inter Milan at the San Siro on Tuesday. Ice cold Icardi struck with his first shot of the match in the 87th minute to grab a draw from a match Barcelona dominated from the start, just four minutes after a neat curling strike from substitute Malcom gave the away side a fully deserved lead. “We played the best team in the world and they scored a typical Barcelona goal, but we never gave up, we kept fighting,” Icardi told Sky Sport Italia. “We didn’t give up after they scored and fortunately the ball bounced to me… there was a bit of luck that the ball arrived there.” The Argentine pounced in a goalmouth scramble, spinning and firing home from close range, and rewarding a brilliant performance from keeper Samir Handanovic that kept Inter in a game they in which they struggled to get a foothold. “We could not clear a silly ball inside the area and we paid for it,” said Barca midfielder Sergio Busquets. “I think we have deserved more. we were more ambitious and we dominated the whole game.” – Dominance – ============= Barca, without injured Lionel Messi, were left to lament throwing away three points from a game in which they created more than enough chances to win but couldn’t get past the superb Slovenia international in the Inter goal. “I think Barcelona played far better than us and we could’ve done more. They came forward too easily in the first half and when you leave them possession constantly, you are going to be pinned back,” said Handanovic.advertisement Barca were on the front foot from kick-off and Ousmane Dembele forced Handanovic into the first of a series of fine saves with a sharp curling strike just a minute into the game. That dominance continued throughout the almost the entire match as Barca had almost complete command of the ball and goalscoring chances, Inter’s best opportunity before Icardi’s leveller coming in the 19th minute when Kwadwo Asamoah flashed over Ivan Perisic’s low cross. Inter struggled to string passes together under the weight of Barca’s pressing, and Handanovic had to be at his best to stop fine efforts from Luis Suarez and former Inter player Philippe Coutinho putting the away side ahead before the break. The Slovenia international made his best save just before the hour mark when he charged out to block Ivan Rakitic’s shot as the Croatian bore down on goal. He was eventually beaten just as it looked like he was going to save Inter from conceding so many chances, Malcom scampering down the right in the 83rd minute before ripping home a shot between two Inter players. But his saves kept the hosts in the game right until the end, and Icardi took the one chance he had to save a point. “We just switched off a bit in the final moments,” said Barca coach Ernesto Valverde. “We know that Inter have picked up a lot of points in the last minutes. “But we’re happy because our main goal of qualifying is achieved. The one that’s left is for us to get first place.” (AFP) ATATlast_img read more

How to stream football legally online

first_imgPremier League Football live streams: How to watch games legally online Goal Last updated 1 month ago 03:00 12/19/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Gabriel Jesus Manchester City Getty Images Premier League WTF Primera División As more fans move away from television subscriptions, Goal has your guide to watching the beautiful game on the go In today’s world of Netflix and iTunes, more and more people are cutting the cord and switching from traditional television packages to live streaming.And with every year that goes by, the evolution in our entertainment consumption habits is having a bigger and bigger effect on the way we watch live sports.Broadcasters are racing to provide online, mobile streaming options to their customers as they see their regular subscriptions dwindle, with even the most prominent rights holders of the most popular products – such as Premier League football – not immune. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player They have been plagued in particular by the rise of illegal live streaming services, which range from websites making money off of pop-up advertising to set-top television boxes that use legal software such as Kodi to run illegal third-party apps.But if you are looking to stream games legally on a laptop, tablet or smartphone rather than watch on television, what are your options?Goal investigates the current state of play in the United Kingdom and United States. Football Streams in the UK Football Streams in the USFOOTBALL STREAMS IN THE UKEden Hazard ChelseaIn the UK, rights to Premier League football are shared between Sky Sports and BT Sport.That means that the only way to legally watch the English top flight live is through a subscription to their services. Most commonly, consumers buy television packages that include the Sky Sports and BT Sport channels.If you are one of those people, you are able to stream games shown on those channels live through their websites and apps.Sky’s range of services is known as Sky Go, and can be accessed as a web application or downloaded through Google Play and the App Store on tablets and smartphones.Instead of a web app, BT stream their channels directly through their website as well as through the BT Sport app on handheld devices.There is no legal way to stream Premier League matches for free. The same goes for La Liga, Serie A, the Bundesliga, Ligue 1, MLS, the Champions League and the Europa League, among others, because Sky and BT own the rights to those competitions too.Occasionally, however, Sky or BT will offer a game for free as a promotion. BT, for example, streamed last season’s Champions League and Europa League finals on YouTube.If you don’t want to pay for Sky or BT, though, there are still some competitions available.Goal regularly streams live football via Facebook. Most recently, we broadcast the Club World Cup final between Real Madrid and Gremio for free in the UK.Football aired on terrestrial channels such as BBC and ITV can also be streamed for free as long as you own a TV licence. The BBC shares the rights to the FA Cup with BT Sport, while ITV broadcast England internationals.Both of those networks can be viewed live via their websites and apps.For more obscure leagues, there is the option of using betting websites. They will often offer streams of games on which you can place bets to customers with funded accounts.FOOTBALL STREAMS IN THE USRomelu Lukaku Manchester UnitedIn the United States, there is a much simpler way to watch just about all the live soccer you can think of via one service.That is fuboTV, which offers an incredible number of leagues and channels and can be tried out without spending a penny through a seven-day free trial.FuboTV includes the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1, the Champions League and more, with just about every major sports station in the States covered.That means NBC, Fox Sports, beIN Sports and so on all available on one platform.What’s more, fuboTV is not a soccer-only service – you’ll also get all of the football, hockey, baseball, basketball and athletics that is shown on those networks.FuboTV can be accessed via iOS, Android, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Roku and Apple TV as well as on a web browser.

Wales feeling the pressure of closing gap on born-again Springboks

first_img Read more Wales rugby union team Wales scrape win as Leigh Halfpenny penalty halts South Africa fightback features Autumn internationals Two years ago, South Africa lost to Italy in Rome. Willie le Roux was their full-back that day, as he has been this month after missing the opening match at Twickenham because his contract with Wasps prevented him from playing. “We have got our Springboks back,” he says when asked about the turnaround under Erasmus. “There was a stage when people did not fear us, but the structures he has put in place mean the guys are playing for each other more and we enjoy wearing the jersey.”South Africa are seeking their third victory of the tour after losing to England by a point in a match they largely dominated. Beating Wales used to be a given: the countries first played each other in 1906 and it was not until 93 years later that Wales recorded their first victory. Now, however, Warren Gatland is seeking a fourth successive success against the Springboks – at the end of an autumn when there has not been a perceptible gap between the hemispheres.Factoring out the weakest country in each of the Six Nations and Rugby Championship and the tally after the first three weeks of the autumn series is three victories each with Wales against South Africa and England’s encounter with Australia to come.The matches have all been close, with the biggest winning margin being the seven points Ireland bettered New Zealand by last weekend and if a 50% record does not appear significant for the north given home advantage and opponents at the end of their seasons, history says otherwise.Not one of the old Five Nations sides has a 50% record against New Zealand, South Africa or Australia. The only fixture that comes close is England and the Wallabies, with the latter two victories ahead. The overall percentage is 26.5, which is why there has been talk of a gap through the generations. … we have a small favour to ask.

A week after Rassie Erasmus’s final match in charge of Munster last year, South Africa played Ireland in Dublin and suffered their record defeat by a Celtic nation, 38-3. The second most successful team in the history of international rugby after New Zealand had gone from being feared to a laughing stock and then an object of pity within a decade of winning the World Cup.Erasmus’s subsequent remit after joining the Springboks, first as director of rugby then as head coach, was to restore self-respect, belief and confidence. His first match in charge was against Wales last June in the unlikely setting of Washington DC and ahead of South Africa’s final game of the year against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday, the house of cards he started to construct then has been fortified rather than blown down. “I think the gap has closed,” says Gatland, the Wales head coach. “It is great for rugby and next year’s World Cup that we have eight or nine teams who are capable of beating anybody on their day. I am aghast that people are turning on New Zealand because they are, to me, still the best team in the world, but there could have been more northern hemisphere successes this month. There is pressure on us to perform on Saturday.”Erasmus agrees. “It is definitely much more even,” he says. “You do not know who is going to win every single match. The All Blacks can lose to Ireland, Ireland can lose to Wales and so on. Beating Wales would make the tour a relative success because we would like to have won all four, but it would mean we had won five of our last seven games and lost the others by a point or two. It would give us confidence but we have to be realistic about where we are. The graph is going up, but we are not close to where we must be if we are to be competitive in the World Cup.”When South Africa trudged off the pitch in Cardiff in December last year, few would have backed them to win in New Zealand 10 months later. “We have new coaches and structures and are a different team,” says the No 8 Duane Vermeulen. “We started from the bottom, got the basics right and are now working on some of the finer things.”The current captain, Siya Kolisi, who played that afternoon adds: “Rassie has made us realise that what is important is being a Springbok not an individual.”Erasmus has used 50 players this year, but eight of the forwards who will be involved against Wales featured in Dublin last year. “We have been consistent in our approach, which we had not been,” says one of them, the Bath back-rower Francois Louw. “A group of core players has been through it all and while we are not the finished product, there has been a massive improvement since we last played Wales.. It has been a tough journey.” Sign up to the Breakdown for the latest rugby union news Topics Read more Share on Pinterest Support The Guardian Share on Twitter Rugby union Since you’re here… Share on WhatsApp South Africa rugby team Warren Gatland Share on LinkedIn Share on Facebook Share via Email Share on Messenger Reuse this contentlast_img read more

Ranchi Test: India and Virat Kohli on the cusp of breaking records against South Africa

first_img Anita Jat RanchiOctober 18, 2019UPDATED: October 18, 2019 22:52 IST Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane during a training session ahead of their third Test against South Africa. (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSIndia took an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the 3-match Test series against South Africa in the Pune TestIndia have never clean swept South Africa in TestsIndia captain Virat Kohli will also be looking to break more records in Ranchi TestAfter imposing a follow-on over South Africa in the Pune Test and inflicting an innings and 137-run defeat over the vistors, India took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 3-match Test series. Having sealed the series already, Virat Kohli-led India side will be now looking for a whitewash in Ranchi to rewrite history.India have never clean swept South Africa in a Test series, though the two teams have been engaged in the longest format of the game against each other since past 27 years, having played the first Test series in 1992-23 and nine more after that.The last time the two sides played each other when India toured South Africa in 2017-18, the hosts won the 3-match series 2-1. Prior to that when India hosted the Freedom Trophy in 2015, the Indian side clinched the 4-match series 3-0 with a match drawn.South Africa lost the first two Tests of the ongoing series by humomgous margins– 203 runs (1st Test), 137 runs (2nd Test) and it will be an unmeasured task for them to figure out how to get themselves out of the deep hole they are in. The visiting side has failed in both the departments in the last two Tests. Neither have their batsmen showed consistency with the bat nor have their bolwers been able to create wicket-taking chances.Read: Wicketkeeping is a thankless jobKeshav Maharaj bowled 127 overs in the 2 Tests but he won’t be bowling more due to an injured shoulder. South Africa will also not have their usual opener Aiden Markram with them in Ranchi after fracturing his wrist in frustration following his second duck in Pune.advertisementBefore touring India, the turning tracks were a concern for the Proteas, something they were troubled by during their 2015 tour. However, South Africa were equally troubled by pace on the Vizag and Pune tracks as they lost 16 of their 40 wickets to the fast bowlers. If South Africa lose the 3rd Test as well, it will be only the third instance of them getting whitewashed in a series of 3 or more Tests since their re-admission after the end of the Apartheid era. Their previous two loses came gainst Australia in 2001-02 (away) and 2005-06 (home).While South Africa have a thread of worries, India, on the other hand, are almost sorted in every department. Virat Kohli, who has been in search of a Test century since long, smashed a double hundred in Pune — his first ton of the season.If India win the Ranchi Test to make it 3-0, Virat Kohli will surpass Graeme Smith as most successful Test captain involving India and South Africa. Also, if the swashbuckling batsman gets 44-plus runs in Ranchi, he will become only the 6th captain to have 5,000 Test runs.Though form and momentum remain to be on India’s side, Virat Kohli will still be hoping to win the toss in the last Test as well. While winning the toss alone is not the most decisive factor in the outcome of a Test, one cannot deny that it does have a bearing on the result, especially in the subcontinent.South Africa captain Faf du Plessis has now lost nine successive tosses in Asia and is desperate to even the odds for his team in Ranchi and open the World Test Championships account. For that, he might even send someone else in his place at toss on Saturday.”Probably will [send] somebody else to the toss tomorrow, I’ll give you that, because my record so far hasn’t been great,” du Plessis had said at the pre-match press-conference.Also Read | South Africa captain Faf du Plessis may send teammate at toss in Ranchi TestAlso Read | Injured Kuldeep Yadav out of Ranchi Test, local boy Shahbaz Nadeem added to India squadFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

first_imgTORONTO – A look at the ownership history of the Toronto Blue Jays and the domed stadium the team calls home.Origins: The Blue Jays were created in 1976 for a 1977 expansion of the American League.

Gasoline prices in most of Canada set to rise this weekend from

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – Plunging world oil prices have delivered a Christmas miracle of lower gasoline prices across most of Canada but a fuel price expert says motorists should fill up now ahead of an expected increase this weekend.Dan McTeague, a senior petroleum analyst at GasBuddy.com, says gasoline prices are at near-18-month lows because of global oil prices that have tumbled over the past two months on worries of an economic downturn, a U.S.-China trading tiff and concerns that members of the OPEC oil cartel won’t live up to production cuts.Despite a brief oil price rally on Wednesday, average regular gasoline prices remain about 17 cents lower per litre than a year ago in Alberta and Ontario, 12 cents lower in Manitoba, six cents lower in Quebec, 11 cents lower in Nova Scotia and three cents lower in Newfoundland and Labrador. McTeague says prices in B.C. are up two to six cents per litre compared with the same time last year but would be lower if not for the effect of interruptions in fuel imports from Washington due to the outage of that state’s Olympic Pipeline in mid-December.U.S. benchmark West Texas Intermediate oil prices plunged to US$42.53 on Christmas Eve, down 44 per cent from US$76.41 per barrel on Oct. 3. They rallied to US$46.22 on Wednesday but trended lower Thursday.McTeague says “extreme volatility” in oil markets are expected to continue to wreak havoc on gasoline prices in Canada in the early part of 2019.“I think what we’re seeing here where oil prices _ and pump prices as a corollary _ are going up and down five and 10 per cent in a given week, much of this is really a harbinger of what we’re likely to see in 2019, extreme price movements,” he said.last_img read more

Integration of Morocco into ECOWAS Natural Step to Promote Fruitful Relations

Washington – The integration of Morocco into the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is a “natural” step aimed at promoting fruitful relations between the kingdom and this African regional grouping, said vice-president of U.S. think tank “Atlantic Council”, Peter Pham.In many ways, this integration will promote the already existing fruitful relations that have been consolidated in recent years under the leadership of HM King Mohammed VI, who paid more than twenty visits to most of the countries of this African regional grouping, Pham told MAP-Washington on Monday.The U.S. expert on African geo-strategic issues added that Morocco is “the first investor of this geographic area”, recalling that the Sovereign has recently visited Nigeria, the largest country in ECOWAS, where an agreement was signed on a gas pipeline project that will mainly benefit the countries of this grouping. Morocco stands out as a “solid partner of ECOWAS in a virtuous momentum for the development and political stability in the region,” he said.Within the context of the royal tour in Africa, mainly in some countries in West Africa, and upon the instructions of HM King Mohammed VI, the Kingdom of Morocco has recently informed Her Excellency Ellen JOHNSON SIRLEAF, president of Liberia and chairperson of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), of its will to adhere to this regional bloc as a fully-fledged member.This request is in conformity with the provisions of ECOWAS founding treaty and meets fully its adherence criteria.This decision by Morocco comes to crown the strong ties, at the political, human, historical, religious and economic levels, with ECOWAS member states.This will to adhere to ECOWAS is part of the royal vision for regional integration as a keystone for Africa’s economic takeoff and it is in line with the sovereign’s African policy, crowned with Morocco’s return to the AU. read more

Annan hails efforts to probe attacks in Nigeria that have killed hundreds

“The Secretary-General welcomes the concerted efforts of the authorities and the affected communities not only to investigate the Yelwa killings with a view to bringing those responsible to justice, but also to promote the peaceful resolution of disputes,” Mr. Annan’s spokesman, Fred Eckhard, said at the daily briefing.Mr. Annan was “deeply concerned over the reports of growing communal clashes in Nigeria” and condemned the attacks in Yelwa, where hundreds of people lost their lives last week, the spokesman said.”He appeals for swift action to ensure the rule of law, and to promote reconciliation, and supports the Government’s efforts to protect the safety of all citizens throughout the country,” the spokesman said. read more

Lebanon Annan Security Council condemn latest bombing

“The Secretary-General strongly condemns this terrorist act which has the effect of undermining the process of building a peaceful, independent and sovereign Lebanon,” said a statement issued by Mr. Annan’s spokesman in New York, referring to the attack, which killed two people and injured the current Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence, Elias Murr, and several others.The Secretary-General reiterates his support, and that of the international community, for the right of the Lebanese people to live free of fear and intimidation,” the statement said, adding that Mr. Annan calls upon all parties to work towards a united and democratic Lebanon.Entering UN Headquarters in New York this morning Mr. Annan told reporters that obviously, each time a bomb attack occurred in Lebanon was a “source of concern and worry.””Lebanon has made lots of progress. The Syrian troops and the security apparatus have withdrawn. They’ve had very fair and peaceful elections, but the situation is still fragile. And we need to be concerned when these attacks take place,” he said, adding: I haven’t got the full report on the incident and who was likely to have committed it. But we need to remain vigilant.”Mr. Annan also said that Detlev Mehlis, the head of the independent investigative committee investigating the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, is carrying on with his work, and was “proceeding efficiently.””And he’s got all the support and the cooperation he needs. And in time, we will be receiving his report,” Mr. Annan said.Later in the day, in a statement to the press delivered by Ambassador Adamantios Vassilakis, of Greece, which holds the Councils’ Presidency for the month, the members of that 15-nation body also condemned the bombing.”The members of the Council also strongly condemned the continuation of political assassinations and other terrorist acts. They warn that those responsible for such acts will not be permitted to undermine the stability, national unity, full sovereignty and political independence of Lebanon,” Ambassador Vassilakis said.He added that the Council members also condemned today’s terrorist attack in the city of Netanya in Israel. read more

first_imgRED RAINBOW How rare is a red rainbow?It is rare to see a red rainbow but that’s probably because of the conditions they usually appear in.“Red rainbows aren’t really all that rare, but a lot of people miss them since, unless you have a dark background, the colour gets washed out,” according to the Sky Lights blog.Meanwhile, another photographer captured this blood red moon looming over New York in these stunning photos.Last year,  a tourist captured this spectacular ‘fire rainbow cloud’ phenomenon on camera.  Here’s something you don’t see everyday.An amateur photographer captured a rare site, a double red rainbow arching over a historic English town.Robert Peel spotted the incredible red rainbow in the small Wiltshire market town of Malmesbury, where he lives, on August 24.The sun had already set in the southern Cotswolds when the rainbow formed in the light of the sun from below the horizon, giving an incredible red glow to the sky.

It was late evening I noticed the horizon to the west was clear and low sunlight was illuminating the old hilltop town,” he explained.“It looked spectacular so I quickly grabbed my camera and headed to a vantage point on the hill opposite the town.  Annoyingly I was a few minutes late and the sun had become obscured by clouds on the horizon.  The light was however quite special; I remembered similar conditions back in 2011 when I captured a rainbow at sunset.  However, it had stopped raining so I was not expecting to see a rainbow. “Just as I thought about giving up I noticed that a rainbow was just beginning to form.  Still no rain – how could this be?  The sun was by now obscured behind hedgerows as gradually sunk from view behind me.  By now the town was shaded but the sun was still illuminated the sky above. “After a few minutes the rainbow became increasingly vibrant and formed into a full, double rainbow as seen in the photograph.  The really striking feature was the colour, with vibrant red and magenta, with a red inner arc; a phenomenon I have noticed when photographing rainbows at sunset and sunrise.  The spectacle disappeared quickly as the sun set further below the horizon.” You can see more of Robert Peel’s work here.  Researchers at the American Geophysical Union have previously explained in more detail why some rainbows appear all red.“The main factor appears to be the height of the sun above the horizon. At sunset, the width of the red band increases, while the width of the other bands of colours decreases,” they said.“The orange, the violet, the blue and the green bands disappear completely in this order. At the end, the primary bow is mainly red and slightly yellow.” What is a red rainbow?The low angle of the sun results in a longer distance for its light to travel through the atmosphere, causing shorter wavelengths of light, such as blue, green and yellow, to be scattered and leaving primarily red.In the lower light environment where the phenomenon most often forms, a monochrome rainbow can leave a highly dramatic effect.last_img read more

DELAY TO THE CORRUPTION TRIALS AGAIN 2015 START NOW

first_img Retrial ordered in Saunders appeal Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 24 Nov 2014 – An announcement today that there is another delay and another tentative date given for the start of the corruption trials of former government ministers and relatives, which keep on costing the country millions of dollars. The Court of Appeal did not meet as it was supposed to today; that means there will be no determination on whether the country will push forward with jury trials or juryless trials and that means the pre-trial hearings set to start next week cannot begin. This process has been plagued with challenges and of the late it is a stand-off between lawyers for the Defendants and the Crown and the Prosecution on whether it is fair to have a trial with the judge making the decision alone. The Court of Appeal reportedly cannot meet before January and a special session to determine the argument of trial without jury never convened this month as had been expected. Both the TCI Sun and the Turks and Caicos Weekly News are reporting the development; explaining also that other issues have been that the attorneys are complaining that the case has seen 60,000 extra pages of evidence submitted, without arrangement for an increase in pay. Some of the UK defense attorneys have withdrawn from the case; relations with the Supreme Court registrar, David Chetwynd have also been strained.

first_imgPlaya del Carmen, Q.R. — One man has died and two more injured after they were electrocuted while working on a building.The accident took place at 11:40 a.m. Tuesday when workers were adding a finish to the outside of the Municipal Retention Center at Playa del Carmen. The trio had erected a scaffold and as they each climbed on, their weight caused the structure to collapse.On its way down, the metal structure made contact with nearby high-voltage electrical wires. One man died at the scene while the other two were rushed to hospital. There is no word on their condition.Investigators say the scaffold fell from a height of around eight meters. Officers from inside the jail rushed outside to offer first aid the the injured men, however, one had already died.
