Lukaku gives Mourinho winning return

first_img Press Association Despite the will of Chelsea, Mourinho and Rooney, that is by no means a formality. Prior to kick-off the Blues angrily dismissed suggestions Spain playmaker Juan Mata or Brazil defender David Luiz would be used as a make-weight in any potential deal, pointing accusingly at United for the claim. Mata and Luiz are two of six players not on the tour after being granted a break following the Confederations Cup and the unusual step taken by Chelsea in commenting on a potential transfer may have been designed to reassure the duo, who are still to meet Mourinho in person. The Portuguese has insisted he has no intention of selling any players and he took the opportunity in Bangkok to assess his squad. Mourinho named two teams, with five players remaining from his first spell selected in the starting XI at the Rajamangala Stadium in front of a local crowd decked out in Chelsea blue. That was reduced to four when midfielder Frank Lampard, who was slated to start, hobbled towards the bench with a strapped right ankle. Ramires began in his place, while five players who spent last year on loan were granted an opportunity, too. Lucas Piazon, one of the quintet, began as the central figure of the attacking trio behind Lukaku, whose ball to Andre Schurrle resulted in an acrobatic mis-hit from Ramires. Ramires leapt to meet a Schurrle free-kick and Chelsea hit the crossbar following a mix-up between goalkeeper Kritsana Klanklin and Lazarus Kaimbi at the back. The Brazilian was also unable to find the target from the resulting set-piece before a rising Kevin De Bruyne drive from distance went over. The Thai side beat a Manchester United side minus Rooney in David Moyes’ opening match in charge last Saturday, but – after confirming before kick-off a bid had been lodged for the England striker, but that none of their players were offered in exchange – the Blues triumphed in the Special One’s first match in charge since September 2007. Romelu Lukaku’s first-half penalty was decisive but Rooney would have relished the opportunities created, particularly if he can be lured to London from Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho marked his return as Chelsea manager with a performance of potential to excite Wayne Rooney with a 1-0 victory over the Singha All-Stars in Bangkok. Lukaku had the first effort on target as he raced into the right side of the area, but shot low straight at Klaklin. Chelsea had a penalty when Wallace was hauled down by Kaimbi, with Lukaku netting the spot-kick, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way. Lukaku was presented with another opportunity when De Bruyne lifted the ball over the All-Stars’ defence, but the striker’s finishing let him down. A Blues side showing nine half-time changes applied more pressure immediately after the break, with Eden Hazard to the fore. The Belgian’s free-kick breached the defensive wall, but was repelled, before Thanongsak Panpipat again saved from Hazard this time at the near post. Branislav Ivanovic was unable to stretch far enough at the far post to make strong contact with a De Bruyne free-kick and then Hazard’s shot deflected and squirmed towards a wrong-footed Panpipat, who gathered under pressure from the Blues attack. The All-Stars’ forays forward were infrequent and neither Petr Cech in the first half, nor Jamal Blackman in the second were tested. The pace of the game slowed as Chelsea settled for a narrow victory, which may have been more emphatic had a player as ruthless as Rooney been on the field. last_img read more

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi : Australia defeated India by 146 runs in the Perth Test to level the four-match series. Chasing the second innings target of 287, the visitors crumbled in the face of mighty Australian bowling attack and bowled out for 140 runs in 56 overs on the fifth and final day. Starting from their day four 112 for five, the visitors lost their remaining five wickets for 28 runs in just 15 overs. With match-winning figures of 8-106 in the Perth Test, Nathan Lyon was named the Player of the Match. Lyon had taken five wickets in the first innings and three wickets in the second innings of the Peth Test.This was Australia’s first Test win since the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa earlier this year.

They added just 21 runs for the sixth wicket.With the fall of Hanuma Vihari, Pant left with no choice but to play the attacking strokes. However, in a bid to do so, he fell victim to player of the match Nathan Lyon. Pant tried to go over the long on but could not connect the middle of the bat and holed out on mid-on where Peter Handscomb took a spectacular diving catch.After Pant’s wicket, it was all over for India with Umesh Yadav (2), Ishant Sharma (0) and Jasprit Bumrah (0) giving up the fight against the mighty Australian attack. While Yadav returned a simple catch to Starc, Ishant and Bumrah were sent back packing by Cummins in the same over.Also Read | Actor Naseeruddin Shah calls Virat Kohli ‘worlds worst behaved player’Earlier, in response to Australia’s first innings 326-run target, India was bowled out for 283 conceding a lead of 43 runs.

Shafer: Right tackle Foy battling 2 leg injuries, considered week-to-week

first_imgThe injury bug hasn’t been kind to Syracuse, especially not offensive lineman Ivan Foy.The senior right tackle, who has a year of eligibility left after this season, is battling two separate lower-leg injuries, SU head coach Scott Shafer said during the Atlantic Coast Conference coaches’ teleconference Wednesday morning.“Ivan’s worked really hard trying to get back, but it’s not coming along as fast as anyone would hope,” Shafer said. “No one more than Ivan wants to be out there … He’s got two areas in his lower leg that we’re trying to get back.“Luckily nothing is going to force us to have surgery or anything like that, but it’s a lot of healing and when you have two lower-body injuries at the same time, it makes it difficult for a kid to keep up his rehab.”The Orange is evaluating the 6-foot-5, 292-pound lineman’s recovery somewhat day-to-day, Shafer said, but more so week-by-week.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFoy suffered the injury during the second quarter of Syracuse’s 31-15 loss to Notre Dame on Sept. 27. He had a knee brace on at the time.In his place, SU used junior Michael Lasker at first but has since moved Omari Palmer from right guard to Foy’s spot at right tackle.“Difficult process for Ivan, which is really a shame because he was playing extremely well,” Shafer said. “He was really becoming the type of right tackle that we thought would be a very good player for this year and the following year.” Comments Published on October 15, 2014 at 1:32 pm Contact Phil: | @PhilDAbb Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

FPL closely monitoring Hurricane Irma and is preparing for a potential…

first_imgFlorida Power & Light Company (FPL) has announced it is closely monitoring the path of Hurricane Irma and preparing to respond safely and as quickly as possible should the storm impact its service area.“Despite the fact that last year, FPL customers in Central and North Florida were significantly impacted by Hurricanes Hermine and Matthew, we estimate that approximately half of the nearly 10 million people we serve, particularly in the tri-county area, have yet to experience a hurricane, much less a major one, since 2005,” said Eric Silagy, president, and CEO of FPL. “Hurricane Irma is a very powerful, dangerous and unpredictable Category 5 storm that has the very real potential to impact Florida, and we are taking every possible action to ensure we are ready to respond. This includes preparing to move our workers and equipment to the areas most likely to be affected. With that in mind, we appreciate Gov. Rick Scott’s forward-leaning decision to declare a state of emergency, which well-positions FPL as we execute our pre-storm efforts.” Prepare for prolonged power outagesFPL urges its customers to take the time now to prepare for potentially prolonged power outages. Additionally, given the nature of the approaching storm and expected vegetation-related impacts on FPL equipment, some customers may experience more than one outage throughout the duration of the storm.“Every storm is different; however, the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey serves as a vivid and painful reminder of Mother Nature’s fury,” said Silagy. “While we hope for the best, we owe it to our customers to prepare for the worst. We urge all of our customers to review their family and business emergency plans, heed warnings and evacuation orders by state, county, and local officials, ensure they have supplies on hand and keep a close watch on the development and track of the storm.”Preparation and safety tips are available at In addition, customers can download the new FPL Mobile App for on-the-go, instant and secure access to their accounts. Customers can report or get the latest information on an outage. The app is available for download in the iOS App Store and Google Play. Invested in a stronger, smarter energy gridSince 2006, FPL has invested nearly $3 billion to build a stronger, smarter and more storm-resilient energy grid to help us restore power faster following outages. By the end of 2017, FPL’s enhancements to the energy grid will include:Strengthening nearly 860 main power lines, serving critical community facilities and services, such as police and fire stations, hospitals, 911 centers, grocery stores and gas stations;Placing more than 450 main power lines underground (60 of which were completed after 2006);Clearing vegetation – a major cause of power outages – from more than 150,000 miles of power lines;Inspecting the company’s 1.2 million power poles every eight years, and upgrading or replacing those that no longer meet FPL’s standards for strength (approximately 150,000 poles inspected annually); andInstalling more than 4.9 million smart meters and 83,000 intelligent devices to help predict, reduce and prevent power outages, and restore power faster if outages occur.last_img read more

Cristiano Ronaldo becomes football’s first billionaire

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo has become the first footballer to earn over $1 billion, according to Forbes, putting him ahead of rival Lionel Messi.Ronaldo, 35, is ranked at No. 4 in the business magazine’s list of the world’s highest-paid figures in 2020 — behind only Kylie Jenner, Kanye West and Roger Federer — with analysis suggesting he brought in $105 million before tax over the past year.That takes the Portugal and Juventus star’s career earnings to $1 billion.According to Forbes, he is just the third athlete to do so while still active, following Tiger Woods and Floyd Mayweather, and the first to do so playing a team sport.ESPN has approached Ronaldo’s representatives for comment.The list judges Messi to have made $104 million this year. The figures mark the latest, off-the-pitch chapter in a rivalry that has defined football over the past decade.The pair won 10 consecutive Ballon d’Or trophies between them from 2008 to 2018. In that time, Messi’s Barcelona came out on top domestically with seven league titles, while Ronaldo’s Real Madrid won the Champions League on four occasions.Ronaldo has expanded his fame beyond football with his CR7 lifestyle brand and a hotel chain, as well as a museum in his native Madeira.His earnings have taken a hit this year, though, after Juventus players agreed to a four-month pay cut to help the Italian side cope with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.Ronaldo is due to return to action on the pitch when Serie A resumes June 20 with Juventus top of the table, a point ahead of Lazio.
