Paterson strike sinks Russia

first_img It was the least his energetic and passionate display deserved and he might have had another when his 58th-minute header was chalked off to a tight offside flag. The day had started inauspiciously for the hosts, with Manchester United defender Jonny Evans missing from the squad due to a stomach bug. Craig Cathcart was drafted in at centre-half as a result, with Jamie Ward and Paterson given the attacking roles in place of Lafferty (Achilles) and Chris Brunt (suspended). Northern Ireland started with intent as Ward, McGinn and Paterson all got shots away inside the first five minutes. None caused Igor Akinfeev serious concern, but it at least showed belief. Russia responded with a couple of early counter attacks – one falling to Aleksandr Kerzhakov in the area and the other seeing Alan Dzagoev line up a shot from 10 yards. Gareth McAuley ended both, a brave block and a sliding tackle keeping his side in it. McGinn produced a dynamic run from the right wing in the 13th minute, going past two men and cutting into the box only to take one touch too many before pulling the trigger. Press Association O’Neill’s first nine matches in charge of the national side had yielded five draws and four defeats, but his first taste of success at the highest level was a sweet one as his men got the better of former England boss Fabio Capello and his highly-rated charges in Belfast. The tireless Paterson, only starting because of an injury to Kyle Lafferty, delivered the result by nodding home Niall McGinn’s 43rd-minute cross – his second goal for Northern Ireland and first in competitive action. Ward was showing plenty of nice touches in the number 10 position, linking well with Oliver Norwood in midfield and looking to play Paterson into space. With a fully-fit squad, he may have been confined to the bench but he was making the most of his chance. Norwood was caught in possession on the half-hour and the alert Dzagoev responded by setting Kerzhakov free, but his deflected shot looped over. The breakthrough almost came in the 41st minute when Ward collected Danny Lafferty’s quick free-kick, carried the ball a couple of paces and then rifled a low shot against the post from 25 yards. Paterson tried to turn home the rebound but could not get any power on his touch. Northern Ireland may have been frustrated but they responded in the ideal fashion. McGinn was the provider, getting in behind his man and chasing the ball to the byline, where he hit a first-time cross towards Paterson. The Huddersfield forward timed his leap and directed a fine header into the far corner. Capello made two changes at the break, replacing Kerzhakov and Dzagoev with Artem Dzyuba and Denis Cheryshev but the latter lasted just six minutes before limping off himself. Russia were forced to use their final substitute as a result, Alexander Samedov entering the fray. With 58 minutes on the clock Northern Ireland – and Paterson – were agonisingly close to a second. Shane Ferguson’s deep corner was steered back across goal by Cathcart and headed in by Paterson, only for a marginal offside flag to cut short the celebrations. An injury to McAuley allowed both sides a chance to collect themselves and receive instruction from the sidelines, Capello getting the chance to earn his near £8million-a-year contract. But it was Northern Ireland who had the first chance after the resumption, Ferguson’s quick feet giving him room to cross for Paterson. He challenged Akinfeev hard but was unlucky to be booked for his efforts. As the game entered the last 10 minutes Roman Shirokov started to take the game to the hosts but his runs were not enough to unsettle a back line marshalled calmly by McAuley. With nine minutes left, McGinn made way for the defensively minded Corry Evans and Brentford’s Will Grigg joined him as the exiting Paterson was awarded a hero’s reception. Four tense minutes of injury-time prolonged O’Neill’s wait but Russia went limp as the time ebbed away. Martin Paterson’s first-half header ended Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill’s long wait for a victory as his side recorded a well-earned 1-0 win over Russia at Windsor Park.last_img read more

GPL Review: Players, coaches react to matchday 6

first_imgWe brought you the review and the stats pertaining week six of Ghana Premier League, now what are the reactions of the main men involved?HERBERT ADDO BLAMES HIS SIDE’S DULLNESSWe did not play as we should have played. We were too dull and not sharp enough and Dwarfs were sharp so the result is what is expected. If you are not prepared to fight, and the other team is prepared to fight, then you get into a real fight. Dwarfs did well, their tactics worked and our central defenders did very well. They did very well and good luck to them.ANTHONY COMMEY HAPPY DESPITE HOME DRAWWe played the game alright, creating chances but failed to score. The game was not bad, they got the goals from the chances they created but this is a starting point. AMOS ADEPA CREDITS HIS SIDE’S DETERMINATION IN WIN OVER HEARTSIt was our determination and focus that gave us the victory. We have planned to be in the top four so it is our focus and preparations that gave us the victory over Hearts.KENICHI WANTS HEARTS TO MOVE ON I understand their frustration but I don’t think it should have been done that way. I don’t think we should blame the referee and his assistants. I was frustrated as much as the fans were but we were still playing. We were still determined as we could see with the players in the middle of the pitch as they came strong. We really wish we could have another game.AND HIS CAPTAIN BELIEVES THE RESULT WAS ONLY A BLIPIt was not a bad game. We came all out for a victory unfortunately we did not get it. We are not down because we have more matches. We are going back to correct our mistakes. Our next game is away and we hope to deliver. STEPHEN ADAMS ASSURES ADUANA STARSThe fans should keep supporting us because all is not lost. We lost our first three matches but under our new coach, we are unbeaten in three. They should keep supporting us.BASHIR HAYFORD FORESAW A BAD DAY FOR HIS SIDENothing went right today from goalkeeping to attack. From the beginning to the end, nothing went right. When you do your homework and this happens, then you take it as it as. Once the same people will be playing our next game, we have to put this behind us and go back again and prepare. We prepared to come and win not to lose but when the game started, I could see the day is not good for us. We have played six matches, we have now lost. There is no pressure on us.  –Follow Kweku on Twitter: @nana_odum. Get more updates on Facebook/Twitter with the #JoySports hashtaglast_img read more

First regular season COVID-19 test results come as validation to Angels

first_img“Everyone’s trying to be as safe as possible,” he said.. “There’s a lot of red tape around what we can do, can’t do. Having to wear a mask everywhere, wiping everything down. Right now that’s the first thing everyone’s trying to keep in their mind: just trying to keep everyone safe.“After we’ve done all those protocols, it’s just on to baseball from there.”FINDING ADRENALINEBaseball as usual in 2020 is quite a bit different for relief pitchers. With no fans in the stands, feeding off a crowd’s energy while jogging in from the bullpen is out of the question.The Angels are, like every team, piping fake crowd noise in from the stadium PA speakers, but how different is it?“Just talking with the guys so far this year, it’s tougher,” Bedrosian said. “You have to focus in on what you’re doing on the mound. A lot of times, having a crowd – people yelling, people there in front of you – raises that adrenaline a lot. You have to focus in more on what you’re doing.”Through Thursday, Angels relievers had the third-highest earned-run average in the American League (5.34). But Maddon said the struggle for adrenaline isn’t unique to the bullpen. He compared the game atmosphere for all players to a minor league or instructional league game with no fans.“You’ve got to create your own energy,” he said. “It has that kind of vibe to it.”“There’s a lot of Red Bull,” Bedrosian added. “As far as everything else, it’s kind of the same.”TEHERAN MAKES PROGRESSMaddon said the results from Julio Teheran’s three-inning intrasquad outing against alternate-site teammates “weren’t that good,” but the manager felt encouraged by the outing nonetheless.“His velocity kept ticking up during the course of the time he was out there,” Maddon said.Maddon said Teheran will throw another intrasquad game before the Angels determine his next step. The veteran right-hander signed a one-year, $9-million contract with the Angels last December. He missed the beginning of the team’s summer camp after testing positive for COVID-19.ALSOAndrelton Simmons is not scheduled to undergo an MRI on his sprained left ankle. “I haven’t heard anything negative,” Maddon said about Simmons’ recovery. … The Angels didn’t discuss the idea of “retaliating” against the Astros for their participation in the 2017 cheating scandal, according to Maddon and Bedrosian.Related Articles Elsewhere in baseball, the picture is less bleak.According to the most recent monitoring testing results announced by MLB and the MLB Players’ Association, only two active players and five staff members (other than the Marlins’ contingent) returned positive tests for the week of July 24-30. Reports out of St. Louis on Friday indicated the two players were employed by the Cardinals, who subsequently postponed their game against the Brewers.For Angels manager Joe Maddon, the latest test results came as validation.“I think what we’re doing and how we’re doing it, we’re getting better with it all the time,” Maddon said. “We’re becoming more used to it every day and gosh, we’re going to probably wear masks for the next 15, 20 years. So I want to believe that if we could stay with what we’re supposed to do, that we can get through this as an industry.”Pitcher Cam Bedrosian said that adapting to the protocols outlined in the 2020 Operations Manual has been the biggest adjustment he’s had to make in this, his seventh major league season. Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros ANAHEIM – The Angels returned from their first road trip of the season on Tuesday and haven’t been forced to postpone a game since.Suddenly, that’s no small accomplishment.On a when day six teams – the Cardinals, Brewers, Marlins, Phillies, Blue Jays and Nationals – had baseball activities postponed because of COVID-19, the Angels began a three-game series Friday against the Houston Astros at Angel Stadium.The Marlins have reportedly seen 18 of their 30 active players test positive since their last game Sunday in Philadelphia. The ripple effect forced four other teams to change their schedules and led to MLB curtailing doubleheaders from nine innings to seven.

Austin Rivers says the Clippers are a better, deeper team without Chris Paul

first_imgDefensively, the Clippers were superb, limiting the Lakers to 40.7 percent shooting (37 for 91).“I think we’re better this year, honestly,” Rivers said. “I know people don’t think that, but I think we’re a better team. I absolutely think we’re a better team than last year. Obviously, it’s only one game. We have 81 more to go.“I think we have more talent this year. Look how many pieces we got for one guy. We got a defensive dog (Patrick Beverley). We drafted well. We’ve got new rookies. We’ve got Sam Dekker. We’ve got Willie Reed. Who else? We’ve got Lou Williams.“We’ve got a way better team. We’re deeper. We defend better. We play faster. I don’t even see how it’s close. It’s tough. Chris is such an unbelievable player. People tend to write you off and I understand that, but I think we have a better team this year.”ON THE MENDRivers didn’t like his opening-night play against the Lakers, when he scored only two points and missed 10 of 11 shots in 26 minutes, 26 seconds. Rivers didn’t start, yielding to Milos Teodosic after sitting out for four of the Clippers’ five exhibitions because of a strained glute muscle.“I’ve got to get my rhythm,” said Rivers, who also sat out for six weeks in the offseason after coming down with mono. “I felt like I was playing basketball with no feel. It’ll come. … I was tired and a little out of shape. It’ll come. I’ll be better.”G LEAGUE ROSTERLaDontae Henton, Ike Iroegbu, Marshall Plumlee and Tyrone Wallace, who were with the Clippers during the preseason, will participate in their new Ontario-based G League team’s training camp, starting Monday at Cal Poly Pomona. What’s improved?“Our competitive spirit, our defense, our overall chemistry,” Rivers said. “We have a willing to pass the ball. We have a willingness to cheer people up. I had a rough game (Thursday against the Lakers). The whole bench was, like, ‘Keep your head up.’ Last year, I would have been on my own.“A lot of guys had rough games and we just stuck with it. That’s why we won by (16). Last year, if we would have had that bad of a game I don’t know what the score would have been. We still defended. We were still, like, ‘Next shot, next shot.’ It’s a different vibe here.”No question, the Clippers are a work in progress. Game 2 of their 82-game regular-season slog arrived Saturday at Staples Center with the Clippers attempting to clean up their act after a Game 1 victory over the Lakers revealed several flaws in their game.The Clippers didn’t shoot particularly well, making only 39.3 percent (42 of 107). They mishandled the ball at key times, committing 15 turnovers, which led to 13 points for the Lakers during a 108-92 win that wasn’t nearly as close as the final score might have indicated.
