Northern Ireland game in doubt

first_imgNorthern Ireland’s World Cup qualifier against Russia tonight is in some doubt due to the weather in Belfast. Overnight rain and snow has left the city in wintery conditions, making the Windsor Park pitch a major concern. Linfield’s stadium is among the more basic in international football and it does not have much in the way of defences to the elements. Press Associationcenter_img The Irish Football Association this morning released the following statement: “The referee (Norway’s Tom Hagen) will inspect the pitch at 10am this morning as part of his normal duty. “We will keep you updated throughout the day.” The snow has also forced the closure of the runway at George Best Belfast City Airport. last_img read more

Arsene Wenger impressed by Stoke’s new approach

first_img “First of all, when we had a very young team we had a style that was maybe a little bit rough for us and we could not always cope with it,” he added. “Last year we went to Stoke with a very young defence – we had Bellerin, Chambers, Martinez – and at the start of the game we got caught. “Petr Cech is 34, (Per) Mertesacker 30, (Laurent) Koscielny 30, (Nacho) Monreal 30… Before we did not have that level of experience and that helps a little bit. “But over the years they had a very efficient, traditional English style which nobody liked to play against and at home it is as well a very windy stadium. “I think it feels stronger. It is always a test Stoke and I believe our record goes against us but it is interesting as well because it is also a mental test to show we have moved forward and that we can deal with what Stoke offer.” Arsene Wenger is surprised by Stoke’s footballing revolution but feels the big names they have attracted proves Barclays Premier League still has pulling power. Wenger takes his table-topping Arsenal to the Britannia Stadium on Sunday, with the Gunners having won only once in the league at Stoke in 34 years. The Arsenal players and management received a barrage of abuse from angry fans last year as they boarded their train back to London following a 3-2 defeat. But they go back this season with their best chance of taking the league title for the first time since 2004, sitting top on goal difference from Leicester after drawing 3-3 at Liverpool on Wednesday night. While Stoke have held a jinx over Arsenal in recent years with their robust and direct style of play at odds with that of Wenger’s teams, Mark Hughes has introduced an attractive approach in the last two years. He has tempted a host of European football’s most prestigious talents to the Potteries and Wenger has been impressed with their alterations. Asked if he was surprised at how Stoke have evolved, Wenger said: “Yes, I think they have gone a more technical and creative way. “They have proved their creative potential and it’s a symbol of Premier League power because Ibrahim Afellay has played at Barcelona, Xhedran Shaqiri at Bayern Munich, Bojan at Barcelona, Marko Arnautovic at Werder Bremen. “So they have players who have played at the top European clubs. They have not taken them because they were bad and today they play at Stoke so that shows you the financial power of the Premier League.” Despite the fans showing their displeasure following the loss at Stoke last December, Wenger has said he has no qualms travelling by train once again. The 66-year-old believes having a more experienced side, coupled with Stoke’s change in approach, could see his side banish those memories. Press Associationlast_img read more

Cricket News IND V AUS: India’s Probable XI for the first T20

first_imgIndia will play two T20 and five ODIs against Australia. The first game will be played at Visakhapatnam. This will also be India’s last assignment before the World Cup.  Further, Virat Kohli is all set to make a return after skipping the entire T20I leg versus New Zealand earlier this month. With the Australia series being India’s last assignment for the all-important World Cup, fringe players like KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant are expected to feature in the playing XI.In the top-order, India may well go with a left-right combination, giving Rohit Sharma rest in the first encounter. The team will also be looking to give Shikhar Dhawan some more game time as he had a quiet Australia New Zealand series. With this, Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul are likely to start off the innings for India, who is expected to feature in all games before the World Cup and fancy his chances ahead of the World Cup selection.While selectors have included three wicket-keeper batsmen in the squad, it is highly likely that Dinesh Karthik and MS Dhoni will feature ahead of Rishabh Pant. The permutation and combination look more real as Karthik isn’t included in the ODI squad. In these circumstances, the team management will look to try Karthik in the shortest format, and then play Rishabh in the ODIs.The panel has also rested spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and it is expected that Umesh Yadav will replace him. Lastly, Mayank Markande, the Mumbai Indians spinner, is also expected to make his debut.Probable XI: Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (c), MS Dhoni (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Krunal Pandya, Vijay Shankar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Mayank Markande.  highlights New Delhi : After a historic win against Australia on their home soil, the men-in-yellow are all set for a couple of bilateral series against India. A few months ago, when India toured Australia for a full series comprising of all three formats, India emerged as victorious in two of three series. Only T20 assignment was where India wasn’t successful as both teams settle with a scoreline of 1-1, as one game ended with a no result with rain gods not letting the game to finish.With this, as Australia arrive in India for two T20 and five-match ODI series, India will look to tick the only unticked box in their favour. The two teams will lock horns for the first time on 24th February at Visakhapatnam for first T20 game.The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) selection committee has made some interesting calls for this series, which makes it more interesting. On one hand, the likes of Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul have been called back into the squad and on the other Khaleel Ahmed is dropped.

Top 10 moments of the last 4 years in Syracuse athletics

first_imgWith graduation quickly approaching, check out the 10 most memorable events in Syracuse sports over the last four years.Josh Chang | Staff PhotographerNov. 2013-Feb. 2014 — Men’s basketball’s 25-0 start to seasonThe Orange got off to its best start in school history by winning the first 25 games of the year. Led by freshman point guard Tyler Ennis, SU shot through the national rankings. Included in the run were memorable wins against Duke and Pittsburgh. The win against Duke set the all-time record for an on-campus crowd (35,446) and the Orange won 91-89 in overtime in the two schools’ first meeting as ACC foes. On the road at Pittsburgh, Syracuse trailed Pitt by one with 4.4 seconds left but Ennis pulled up from nearly half court and drained a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to extend the Orange’s win streak.Daily Orange File PhotoAdvertisementThis is placeholder textMay 25, 2014 — Women’s lacrosse national championship lossIn Syracuse’s second championship game appearance in three years, the Orange let Maryland score five goals in the game’s opening five minutes and eventually lost the matchup, 15-12. While the game was just another loss to Maryland — since head coach Gary Gait started coaching SU, his program is 1-11 against UMD — it was the last game SU legends Alyssa Murray and Kayla Treanor played together.Daily Orange File PhotoMarch 6, 2015 — NCAA sanctions The NCAA released a 94-page report detailing improper academic benefits, violations of the school’s drug policy and a lack of institutional control that had taken place over the course of more than a decade involving the men’s basketball and football teams. As a result, Director of Athletics Daryl Gross stepped down, head men’s basketball coach Jim Boeheim said he would retire in three years and the teams were put on five years probation — among other things. Through appeals, the university won back scholarships, Boeheim was able to start his nine-game suspension earlier than originally stated, but the school failed in its appeal of vacated wins (parts of five years worth of basketball wins and three years worth of football wins).Daily Orange File PhotoNov. 22, 2015 — Field Hockey national championship winAfter an undefeated regular season, Syracuse lost to North Carolina in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. But the Orange got revenge by winning SU’s first-ever national title for a women’s program. Senior goalie Jess Jecko made several key late saves and Syracuse’s offense did enough to secure the 4-2 win. In 2014, the Orange lost to Connecticut in the national championship and before that, SU had made several deep postseason runs. But finally Syracuse broke through with the ultimate prize: a national title.Bryan Cereijo | Staff PhotographerNov./Dec. 2015 — Men’s soccer Final Four runSyracuse began the 2015 season needing to replace nearly 70 percent of its scoring from the year prior. All the Orange did was win 16 games and advance to the program’s first ever Final Four. Crucial wins down the stretch against No. 5 North Carolina, No. 2 Clemson and No. 9 Notre Dame led to SU’s first conference title since 1985. In the NCAA tournament, a Ben Polk header in the 79th minute of the Elite Eight sent the Orange to the Final Four. But SU lost to Clemson in penalty kicks in the semifinal game.Evan Jenkins | Staff PhotographerMarch/April 2016 — Women’s basketball Final Four runTwo blowout losses to Notre Dame and Louisville had Syracuse at rock bottom in the middle of the season, but what happened next was an improbable run to the ACC and national championship games. The Orange went on an 11-game winning streak to end the season and received a No. 4 seed in the tournament to host games for the first time in program history. SU headed to Sioux Falls, South Dakota and took down a powerhouse in No. 1 seed South Carolina that had lost just once all season. The team’s first Sweet 16, Elite Eight and Final Four berths culminated in a national championship game appearance against No. 1-ranked and undefeated Connecticut. Syracuse native Breanna Stewart and the Huskies ended the Orange’s magical run.Daily Orange File PhotoMarch/April 2016 — Men’s basketball Final Four runSyracuse sat on the bubble on Selection Sunday, but after getting in as a No. 10 seed, the Orange made the most of its trip to the Big Dance. First with two dominant wins and then with two ferocious comebacks to reach the Final Four. The Orange trailed No. 11 seed Gonzaga in the Sweet 16 by as many as nine with under seven minutes to play and trailed No. 1 seed Virginia in the Elite Eight by as many as 15 with under 10 minutes to play. SU pulled off both remarkable upsets and despite losing in the Final Four to No. 1 seed North Carolina, Jim Boeheim’s fifth Final Four run as a head coach was memorable.Jessica Sheldon | Staff PhotographerDec. 5, 2015 — Dino Babers hired as SU football coachSyracuse hires Dino Babers as its fifth head football coach since 2000, replacing former coach Scott Shafer. The now 55-year-old Babers played collegiately at Hawaii, before beginning his coaching career there in 1984.

Etta-Tawo finished his senior year with 1,482 receiving yards on 94 receptions and 14 touchdowns, all SU single-season bests. (He tied Tommy Kane’s 1987 touchdown record). He dominated all season long, no performance more prevalent than his five-touchdown game against Pittsburgh.Jessica Sheldon | Staff PhotographerFeb. 4, 2017 — Jim Boeheim wins 1,000th* game against VirginiaJim Boeheim had 101 wins vacated by the NCAA before the season began. But SU fans and media members had a different win count for the men’s basketball head coach. Syracuse had an Elite Eight rematch with then-No. 9 Virginia with Boeheim sitting unofficially on 999 wins. Fans stormed the court after the 66-62 victory and Boeheim waved as he walked off.
