Mexico coach rages against Robben and refs

first_img He quipped: “What goes against football is to have to play in these conditions. The players were suffocated by the sun, heat and the humidity.” Herrera then decided to complain about the World Cup organisers for making the teams play in Fortaleza at 1pm, when it is extremely hot and humid. 29/06/2014 “Out of the four matches here in all of them the refereeing was disastrous,” he blasted. “Robben did three dives and he should have been cautioned. You should caution a guy who is trying to cheat, and then if Robben did it again he would be sent off. Upd. at 23:36 CEST The Dutch won 2-1 to progress to the World Cup quarter-finals at Mexico’s expense.center_img “I want the referee committee to take a look and that the referee goes home just like us.” Herrera criticised the referee Pedro Proenca and also blasted other refs his team had previously had. “And why did FIFA choose a referee from the same confederation as Holland instead of one from South America, Asia or Africa? Mexico manager Miguel Herrera was left raging at Arjen Robben after the Dutchman won a late penalty to help Holland beat his side. “The doubtful decisions were always against us. We have to say it in capital letters, in three matches we had horrible refereeing. The man with the whistle knocked us. Rik Sharmalast_img read more

Carvajal adds to Madrid’s injury woes in defence

first_img Danilo, who is also a right-back, began the game at left-back due to Marcelo’s absence – the Brazilian was injured in the Clasico loss to Barcelona. He appeared to be injured in the early stages of the game, too, but he stayed on the pitch and it was Carvajal who eventually had to be taken off due to a muscle problem.  Rafa Benitez has a serious problem in defence. Since the beginning of the season there have been a number of injuries. Pepe, Danilo, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo and Carvajal have all missed games and it’s possible the Spanish coach’s favoured back four (Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo) will all be absent against Cadiz. 29/11/2015 Both full-backs, though, were able to play for the majority of the game. In the end, Carvajal was replaced by Karim Benzema with Madrid two goals up and just five minutes left in the game against the Basque minnows.  J.A. Sanchezcenter_img Upd. at 21:11 Dani Carvajal, injured again. The Real Madrid right-back picked up another knock against Eibar and, almost certainly, will not play against Cadiz in the Copa del Rey this week – he could even miss next week’s game against Getafe at the Santiago Bernabeu.  CETlast_img read more

Cricket: Ravichandran Ashwin wary of facing Australia in their own den

Powered by Firework Image Courtesy: India.comAdvertisement The Men In Blue face a stern challenge ahead on Aussie shore with the test series not far away. With the hosts at their vulnerable peak, the odds are on India to capitalize on the situation for a rare series victory away from home.Advertisement Speaking to reporters after a hard day out in the field against the Cricket Australia XI, Ashwin claimed that beating the World Champions in their own den is not an easy task. He elaborated:“The whole talk about India starting favourites, even when Australia came to India they were talking us up, and it looks like more of a strategy for us. I personally think you have to go one day at a time. It’s never easy to come over to Australia and win series. In the Ashes, they almost whitewashed England, knocked them over, and so as far as I’m concerned they are starting favourites. It’s very important for us to chip away every single day, every single ball, and if we can get our noses ahead, stay ahead,”Advertisement The off-spinner also commented on his efforts in the warm-up fixture that is underway. He said: “I thought the ball came out pretty well (off my hand). I haven’t played an international game for a while so it felt good the way it came out. In the next 4-5 days, I will prep up a bit more for the game,” Furthermore, the Kings XI Punjab spinner explained the team’s strategy for the first test in Adelaide. He stated:“You have to stitch together partnerships even when bowling and it’s very important to ascertain your role to get what you can out of the game. It obviously changes the dynamics for the captain when he goes out with one bowler less or one bowler more. But as a bowler personally it’s still the same for me,” Read Also:POLL: KL Rahul deserve more chances?Twitteratis react to Prithvi Shaw’s brutal ankle injury Advertisementlast_img read more

Arsenal’s defensive woes worsen as Chambers option grades out

Powered by Firework Arsenal’s problems in the defense have been heavily hit by long term, crucial injuries, and Unai Emery’s options in the back keep on running out. However, the situation has taken a turn for the worse as the option to recall on-loan Fulham defender Calum Chambers is not an option anymore. Advertisement Chambers signed for fellow Premier League side Fulham from Arsenal in August last year as part of a loan deal running for the whole of this season. The Gunners, being marred by injuries in all departments have looked much weaker all throughout the term. But having picked up some crucial ones in the back, with Hector Bellerin out for a long time and the recent ones of Sokratis Papastathpoulos and Laurent Koscielny against Manchester United in the FA Cup two days earlier, puts them in a tight spot.The option of recalling Chambers from Fulham was one prospect of saving some time until players return to full training. But that path appears to have been blocked as well.Advertisement Due to the clause of recalling Chambers back to the Emirates Stadium missing from his loan agreement with Fulham, Arsenal will be unable to retrieve the England national, and thereby taking a massive blow in the defense.Head coach Unai Emery will be relying on youngster Dinos Mavropanos for his talents in the back after his absence on the pitch since been injured back in pre-season last year.Advertisement Read also:-Arsenal target Sampdoria goalkeeper Emil Audero in the January transfer window Advertisementlast_img read more
