Report: Bristol City U23s 2-1 Charlton Athletic U23s

first_imgAlfie Doughty equalised from close range for the Addicks, but no matter what the outcome of the game, City had already qualified for the first of the knockout stages.City headed into their final group game level on points with Liverpool, who had already played their sixth and final match, therefore Luke Williams’ side knew at least a point would be enough to finish top of Group G.HEGELER RETURNSJens Hegeler captained the side as the defender marked his first start for five months after recovering from a knee injury. Milan Djuric also played for half an hour in the cup clash at City’s Failand training base, signalling his return from a groin injury.It was the visitors who went closest to scoring first after Jordan Zemura darted down the left before picking out Albie Morgan but his teammate curled an effort over the bar as he opted for placement into the top corner.Djuric should have put City ahead after George Nurse whipped in a driven, low cross. The Bosnian international seemed certain to score from close range but the ball tapped off the post. The keeper Jordan Beeney may have got a touch too before the ball was eventually scrambled away.But City were ahead after quarter of an hour; Woodrow picked the ball up to the left of goal and unleashed an unstoppable shot beyond Beeney.It was then a tale of two keepers as City shotstopper Jojo Wollacott first denied Alex Willis, before Beeney produced a smart save of his own to deny Gustav Engvall after he burst through on goal.ADDICKS EQUALISECharlton Athletic made it 1-1 through Doughty’s close-range shot shortly after the half-hour mark. A cutting through pass found Morgan whose shot flicked off Wollacott before pinging off the post. Doughty was ready to pounce for the rebound, smashing the ball into the open net.Already-qualified City came out for the second half far from content with a point and showed early signs of their pursuit for more goals: first, Woodrow clipped a delightful ball into Engvall, whose shot had to be tipped on to the post, and Woodrow fired off target shortly after.Chances came few and far between in the crisp and windy conditions, that was until substitute Antoine Semenyo turned and unleashed a powerful drive at goal which was finely pushed out for a corner from Beeney. But it was from that corner City’s decisive goal came.CITY WINNEREdwards, who earlier replaced Djuric, was the man of the moment as he received the ball from the City corner. He took the ball beyond a handful of Charlton players before striking the ball into the net.City held on to their winning scoreline, with only a Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu header a threat which Wollacott easily held late on.City complete their Group G journey with 13 points from four wins, one draw and one defeat.FULL-TIME THOUGHTSSpeaking after the whistle, U23s coach Williams said: “It was a good win. We were already through the group stage but the boys continued to play in a professional, competitive manner so that was good to see.”There was a lot of quality which they (first-team players) brought to the game. It’s credit to their attitudes that they are willing to come and play with the younger lads, in this type of game and they managed themselves immaculately.”They bring calmness and quality on the ball, leadership and their reading of the game. They help the players to understand different scenarios.”WILLIAMS RELISHING NEXT ROUNDCity take on Swansea in the next round of the PL Cup.Williams added: “I’m very much looking forward to playing Swansea. It’s going to be difficult, it always has been against Swansea, they are a strong outfit so it will be a great game.”All knockout ties, from the last 16 through to the final, will be one-off matches. If the teams are level after 90 minutes, they will be decided by extra-time and then penalties if there is still no winner.last_img read more

Angel Di Maria speaks to South American media about Manchester United…

first_imgWith a great performance in the second half and making two assists, the Argentine star helped Paris Saint Germain to beat Manchester United 2-0 and get a great advantage for the second leg of the Champions League round of 16.The game was marked by fan reaction about the player’s return to Manchester, where he couldn’t really show his best in the only year he spent at the club.With cursing, kisses and pretending to drink from a beer bottle which was thrown towards him, Di Maria had a response to that. And when interviewed by Esporte Interativo, he was asked if he got a little bit ‘nervous’ about the reception.“Yes, no, the truth is that I never spoke badly about people (the fans) or the club. I only had problems with the manager and nothing else,” Di Maria told Esporte Interativo. “Then I was very calm. I just stayed calm on the pitch and that’s why things worked out the best way possible.”PSG defender Marquinhos was also asked about the Argentine star’s performance, and says Di Maria deserved the great night he had.“It was incredible, wasn’t it. The performance he had today was enormous. We saw that with 70 minutes he was already really exhausted, because he left everything, came to defend, filled the spaces. Di Maria is a guy who has been making a huge season for us, has an incredible working, training, mentality. And today, I think all this was returned to him in a great performance. So I think it was a very personal moment for him too, so that he could make a big game, so he could give an answer to himself, to the Paris fans, to the Manchester fans. So we congratulate him for the great game he has made, and hope he continues with this mentality.”The only Manchester United player who spoke to Esporte Interativo was Ander Herrera. Two of the questions made to him were about the game, and when the Di Maria subject was mentioned, he had a short answer: “I talk about football, not controversies.”by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.

In it, Bayern did not stop attacking the door of the guests from Frankfurt and scored two goals, and the goals could have been more.Leon Gorecka opened after a pass from Thomas Mueller in the 17th minute, and at the end of the half Mueller was in the right place to intercept a pass from Alfonso Davis.In the first seconds of the second half came the moment of the usual suspect – Robert Lewandowski. With a good plunge, the Pole scored his goal №41 during the season, and with a score of 3-0 everything seemed to be resolved.last_img read more

Don’t bother visiting White House: Trump to Philadelphia Eagles over anthem dispute

first_imgJoe Faraoni / ESPN Images(WASHINGTON) — Facing a growing boycott by Philadelphia Eagles players refusing to visit the White House Tuesday, President Trump decided to disinvite the Super Bowl champions and throw a celebration of the National Anthem instead, administration officials tell ABC News.Over the course of the last several days, many Eagles players have been backing out of attending the traditional presidential Super Bowl celebration because of Trump’s controversial comments about the NFL and players who have staged protests during the anthem.The president chose to change the nature of the event in light of the boycott, one official said.“He found having a smaller group come to the White House to be unsatisfactory,” the official told ABC.In an unusual move, Trump himself issued a statement Monday evening.“The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow. They disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country,” the statement said.“The Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better. These fans are still invited to the White House to be part of a different type of ceremony—one that will honor our great country, pay tribute to the heroes who fight to protect it, and loudly and proudly play the National Anthem. I will be there at 3:00 p.m. with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus to celebrate America.”Eagles fans who RSVPd can still come to Tuesday’s event but no one from the Philadelphia team or management will be attending, the source confirmed.Asked if any players were still invited to come to the White House, the official replied: “If they all decide to stand [for the anthem], we would be open to having that conversation.”Wide receiver Torrey Smith, who was part of the Eagles winning team but has since been traded to Carolina Panthers, tweeted back at the president over his statement.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
