Boga yet to fulfil Chelsea potential

first_imgChelsea ‘I don’t think I have done enough’ – Boga concedes he is yet to fulfil Chelsea potential Nizaar Kinsella Click here to see more stories from this author Chelsea correspondent 15:21 5/28/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Jeremie Boga Getty Images Chelsea Birmingham City Premier League The Blues loanee is still battling to reach the levels that he believes he is capable of as he prepares to take on the latest challenge in his career Just 18 minutes into his Chelsea debut in August, Jeremie Boga was hauled off in a tactical change following Gary Cahill’s dismissal against Burnley. The Blues would go on to lose their opening match of the 2017-18 Premier League season – a sign of things to come in a campaign which ended in a disappointing fifth-place finish. Boga joined Chelsea at the age of 16 after being scouted in a non-professional game. His dribbling ability and box of tricks made him one of the most exciting players to watch in his age group, and his senior bow was the culmination of years of hard work. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Now 21, Boga spent the majority of the 2017-18 campaign on loan at Championship side Birmingham City, having completed a move at the end of August. Though Boga admits that he was left down about the length of his only appearance in a Blues shirt to date, he is still proud that he has been able to achieve something that few have managed.”Yes, it was very surprising for everyone including me to start that game,” Boga told Goal.”In pre-season, I went with the first team and for me it was just to add numbers. But I said to myself, ‘I will train hard and you never know, I might get that opportunity.’”In the Arsenal game [in China] that is what happened because [Pedro] got injured. It was unlucky for him, but it was an opportunity for me. I went in and after that I got more game time. Then when we came back to England I was training well, because I knew there was a player out with a red card so it was an opportunity to take.”Luckily, I got my 15 minutes. I think on the day and the day after, I was really sad. I think that is a normal feeling because, for me, I was waiting for that chance for a long time. After that, I got back up and trained as hard again because I couldn’t keep staying down about it. You have to make sure when the next opportunity comes that you are ready.”Everyone knows how hard it is to play for Chelsea, so for me, whether it was just one minute or two minutes, I don’t care. It was really a proud moment for me and my family. I now look back on it with pride, yes.”Boga spent a third successive season out on loan, this time at Birmingham. The Midlands side struggled throughout 2017-18 and only narrowly avoided relegation, but Boga earned a creditable 34 appearances to take him to 92 over the course of spells with Rennes, Granada and now Birmingham.Harry Redknapp signed Boga for Birmingham, but the attacker would go on to play for three more managers, with Lee Carsley, Steve Cotterill and finally Garry Monk coming in. Boga believes his versatility helped him to be of use to different bosses.”I played in all different positions. With Redknapp, at the beginning, everyone was happy because I was playing as a number 10,” Boga added. “I was high up the pitch and working in a second striker position, where I played throughout my Chelsea youth. So for me, that was important.Jeremie Boga“I can also play on the wing and did that a lot this season. I can also play as a striker. I have learned to play as a striker. I think it helped me survive, especially this season, because if I could only play as a number 10 then I think I wouldn’t have lasted long in this team with their problems.”Though he does have experience at the highest levels in France, Spain and England at the age of 21, Boga concedes that he should be further along in his development. “For me, I have done some good things in my career, but for the talent that I think I have I don’t think I have done enough,” the one-cap Ivory Coast international said. “I think I need to go much higher, I want to keep working to reach my goals at my national team and clubs I play for. I have a lot more work to do.”Jeremie BogaBoga is cautious about his next move and a summer meeting at Chelsea will decide what he does next. The midfielder does think that Chelsea’s loan system is beneficial to many players, and that several of his fellow 36 loanees have what it takes to make it.”The best feeling was one against Hull City because I played against Ola Aina. We did everything together ever since I came to Chelsea,” Boga said. “From the Under-16s we grew up together, but it wasn’t such a fun experience because we lost 6-1. However, it is nice to see how well he is doing and to exchange shirts, it was a proud moment for us.”I think Ola can be a top player in his position. The same goes for Charly Musonda and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. I hope Loftus-Cheek gets his chance soon and Musonda is a talent.”Boga has now worked under Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte. With the Italian likely to depart Chelsea this summer, Boga hopes to experience being coached by a world-class manager once again in the future.”There is not a lot of differences because they are both top managers at the top of their game,” Boga said of the pair. “Mourinho was very good as well with me also. He gave me a lot of confidence. I did pre-season with him as well and he was always talking to me. I think they both are good coaches and are really focused on what they do. They notice every detail and don’t let anything get past them.”last_img read more

Thank you for entrusting us with this privilege, the privilege of hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2026,” an emotional US Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro said on stage after the vote.”The beautiful game transcends borders and cultures. Football today is the only victor.”In qualification for the 2018 World Cup, the USA surprisingly finished fifth in a group of six countries in the fifth round of qualification, only ahead of Trinidad & Tobago.Canada, meanwhile, did not even make it that far, finishing third behind Mexico and Honduras in the fourth round.The country has competed in just one World Cup in its history, qualifying for the 1986 tournament and failing to collect a single point from three matches.Mexico, meanwhile, finished top of the qualification pool and will face Germany, Sweden and South Korea in Group F.last_img read more

Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move But Maradona pointed out that even the best players can make mistakes from 12 yards out – including himself. “I missed five penalties in a row and I was still Diego Armando Maradona,” the 1986 World Cup winner explained to Telesur. “The game and the two points lost by the team are not down to his penalty.”He showed his face and gave everything he had to give. The ‘kid’ did his duty.”Seeing him on the field, he was pretty pissed off. Just like I would have been. It was all him, he always had to shrug two players off and when he did, there was no pass open.” Maradona has focused criticism on coach Jorge Sampaoli, whom he believes should not return to Argentina if the team continues to struggle. But the colourful former Albiceleste boss nevertheless believes that his nation can turn things around – with a bit of help from up above. “Whether you win, lose or draw, it is always 11 players on the pitch. But you have to see how you win, lose and draw,” he added. “We are closer to losing the coming games. We are in big trouble, but we still believe in God and that we can improve.

We are United. There are many people outside waiting for United not to be good and enjoying it when we don’t do well.”We have two options: to stick together or let that criticism and that enjoyment from others at our results affect us in a way that we divide ourselves. One weekend you’re an idol, you score the winner, and three days later you miss a big chance and you’re a villain.“The repercussions of every single action in a game is unbelievable. It can be turned into a video seen by millions instantly on Twitter or Instagram , missing a penalty, making a mistake, and it’s seen as ‘a tragedy’ on many smartphones and in many minds.” last_img read more

Video: Kansas Football Just Found The Worst Way To Lose A Game Ever

By on October 27, 2019

The Jayhawks actually held it close until the end, with a chance to win the game on the final play. That…did not quite work out. In an attempt to spike the ball, quarterback Montell Cozart fumbled the snap, recovered it but was ruled down, and then attempted to spike the ball from the ground. He tried to quickly take another snap and spike, but the clock ran out before the Jayhawks could run a play.We’re sorry, KU fans, but here is the video, via SB Nation’s Luke Zimmermann.Not like this, Kansas pic.twitter.com/W4LQB07AKH— Luke Zimmermann (@lukezim) September 5, 2015Basketball season is closer than you think, Jayhawks.last_img read more

‘Napoli are the best option for James’

By on October 26, 2019

first_imgNapoli are “the best option” for James Rodriguez, claims the Colombian’s father, with a transfer to Italy favoured over one to England if another move away from Real Madrid is made.The South American playmaker has registered on the recruitment radar of those in the Premier League for some time, with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United credited with interest.Speculation has surfaced again this summer, with the exit door having been flung open at the Santiago Bernabeu.

James is back in Spain after a two-year loan spell at Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.They will not be taking up a purchase option and the 27-year-old is expected to remain out of favour in Madrid with Zinedine Zidane back at the Blancos’ helm.With another change of scenery likely, James’ father believes a reunion with Carlo Ancelotti in Serie A – a coach the former Porto star has previously worked with at Real and Bayern – makes the most sense.“I think a new change is what he needs for his career now, and [fellow Colombian] David Ospina is at Napoli now and I think he is very important,” Wilson Rodriguez told CalcioNapoli.“Napoli are the best option for him.“He has character and personality. Even at times of adversity, he’s always come out strongly. He was born for this, thank God.“Between him and Ancelotti, there was immediately a lot of respect. James is grateful to Carlo for what he did, he knows how to get the best out of him and that contributed to their great friendship.“The coach has always been very happy with his performances. I’ve heard about [the speculation] and I think a change is what he needs right now.”James, who also took in a spell with Monaco in Ligue 1 before heading to Madrid in 2014, is considered to have played the best football of his career to date under current Napoli boss Ancelotti.“Porto, Spain, Bayern, are all very different situations that I believe he has always faced with the same attitude,” Rodriguez senior added.“His best season remains that in Madrid with Carlo Ancelotti, but I am optimistic for the future.”last_img read more

PSG sporting director Leonardo has conceded Neymar can leave, but he has said no club have made an acceptable offer for the star. While Filipe Luis would like to see his Brazil team-mate return to Camp Nou, the former Atletico Madrid full-back acknowledged it will not be easy.”I want him to finish in Barcelona,” Filipe Luis told Cope’s Tiempo de Juego program.”At Barca, Neymar is happy.

‘I promised two goals’ – Neymar lifts lid on Barca’s historic 6-1 PSG win

By on

first_imgNeymar has revealed that he predicted he would score two goals in Barcelona’s history-making 6-1 Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain back in 2017.Trailing 4-0 after being humbled in the first leg in France, Barca returned to Camp Nou in need of a miracle.And, after producing a sensational performance in the return meeting, they pulled off what seemed to be the impossible to put six past the French side and advance to the quarter-finals. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Neymar, however, claims that he always knew the Blaugrana would win at home and that he would play his part in turning a disastrous first-leg result on its head.”Two of my friends said that PSG had a great team – and they did – and that they had already qualified, this and that…” the 27-year-old told DAZN.”But I got up and said: ‘You are my friends, you work with me, but it seems you don’t believe we can turn this game around. We will reverse this situation, and I promise you two goals’.”We had trained in the morning and I saw each player’s face. Everyone was happy, nobody was down or worried about reversing the situation against PSG. We knew it would be very difficult to reverse the game. “Our conversation was about playing football as it had always been Barcelona’s play to display good football, to turn a football game into a show. “We knew we would win. We didn’t know if we would go through to the next round, but we knew we would win because we knew we would play our part very well.“When the game began, it started with a different vibe. I was challenging everyone, running more than ever. It was one of, if not the biggest match I’ve ever played in and one of the most emotional.”We scored the first two goals quickly so we were thrilled. We went into half-time 2-0 up with two more goals to score. The team we had was different – we didn’t go about screaming in the dressing room. No, it was a conversation. “We were very calm, very focused, relaxed and the only conversation I remember having was: ‘Keep calm, let’s do it goal by goal’. We were not worried about going into the next round. I think that’s why we played really well that day. We were not desperate. We were quiet and focused.”The atmosphere after the second goal was different. We saw that the fans were believing. They kept shouting, encouraging us.”When we scored the third goal, it was Leo [Messi] who scored. I won the penalty, he scored it.  The fans were on fire and we thought: ‘Let’s go, now we’re going to go through’.”At that moment, we suffered a blow, [Edinson] Cavani’s goal. When we conceded the goal, we saw everyone was half-hearted, doing that face: ‘We’re f*cked’. It became more difficult, it was practically impossible. Everyone thought we would score another, but now we had to score three.Neymar The Making Of“We still tried to keep playing our football, to continue to score goals, to see what would happen. We just hoped not to concede any more goals. One goal had already complicated things because we had to score three. Two? Forget about it.”I still believed. I still wanted to score those two goals I promised to my friends. Oh, it gives me shivers, a lot of strong emotions definitely.”With 88 minutes gone, Neymar curled a spectacular free-kick into the top-left corner to deliver the first half of his promise and take the score 4-1 in Barca’s favour, although it remained 5-4 to PSG on aggregate. Moments later, Luis Suarez won a penalty and it was the Brazilian who was charged with the responsibility to take it.”I was going to give it to Leo, but Leo told me to take the penalty,” Neymar recalled. “He said: ‘No, you go’. I said: ‘Me?’ He said: ‘Yes, you do it’.”My only thought was that I could not miss that penalty, because if I missed the penalty I would end the stadium’s dream of going through to the next round.”It was the most I’ve ever focused on a penalty, and thank God I managed to score. I kept the promise of two goals. That was the moment I thought we had it. I asked Leo: ‘Why did you let me take that penalty?'”He said: ‘I felt at that moment that you would score the goal, that you were more confident’. I think he had that feeling, and it turned out alright. The penalty brought the possibility, the strength, to score the sixth goal.”Only seconds remained of second-half injury time as Barca pushed for a match-winning strike and it was Neymar himself who engineered the move to send Sergi Roberto through on goal to complete one of the greatest Champions League comebacks ever.“In that game, the most striking goal was Sergi Roberto’s,” Neymar said. “It was the goal that made us go through. It’s the goal that will be remembered in history and I’m happy to have made the move, but his goal was special – that’s when the Camp Nou exploded. “That was the most important goal. I think that, in terms of excitement, in terms of making everyone crazy, that was one of the most important goals in Barcelona history.”I wasn’t crying, I was over the moon! It was crazy. I had never seen Camp Nou like that. After the sixth goal, the explosion was huge, both for the players and the fans. It was something that I don’t think I’ll ever live through again.”That’s why I’ll remember it for the rest of my life.”You can watch the full series of The Making Of  exclusively on DAZN .last_img read more

Asus TUF FX505 review: Latest Intel processor and sturdy build make this a dependable gaming laptop

By on October 25, 2019

first_imgAsus TUF FX505 review: Latest Intel processor and sturdy build make this a dependable gaming laptopThe Asus TUF FX505 is relatively a more affordable way to enjoy high-quality PC gaming on the move. The robust build and powerful specifications make this gaming laptop a great buy for gamers on a budget. Amritanshu Mukherjee New DelhiJanuary 12, 2019UPDATED: January 12, 2019 16:09 IST 8/10HIGHLIGHTSThe TUF FX505 offers a choice of 8th Gen Intel Core processors and various RAM as well as storage configurations.The 15.6-inch Full HD display has a butter-smooth 144Hz refresh rate.The i7-8750H in the TUF FX505 is one of the powerful variants of the Core i7 family with a hexa-core setup.Asus is one of the very few brands in India that focuses on the gaming segment more than anyone else. Their ROG series of laptops are popularly known to be the choice of hardcore gamers, with several gamer-friendly features. The TUF series offers a more no-nonsense approach to PC gaming at relatively affordable prices. They even came up with a ROG-branded Android smartphone for catering to mobile gamers. That’s why, when Asus does a gaming laptop, you know that it won’t disappoint you, to say the least. The TUF FX505 is their latest offering and from the looks of it, the laptop seems impressive.The TUF FX505 offers a choice of 8th Gen Intel Core processors and various RAM as well as storage configurations. The range starts at Rs 79,990 for the variants with Core i5 processor. However, as you bump up the specifications, the price goes up to Rs 1,29,990 for the variant with a hexa-core Core i7 processor and a dedicated Nvidia GTX 1060 GPU. This is a very good deal for performance enthusiasts, considering Asus is offering some of the latest generation specifications for offering a fairly enjoyable gameplay experience.Asus TUF FX505 design and build:Gaming laptops are a different breed of portable computers with a strict focus on functional and performance-oriented design. The TUF FX505 is no exception – it looks and feels like any other gaming laptop from Asus. It looks and is, bulky, especially with an overall weight of 2.2Kg. Since this doesn’t fall under the coveted ROG series, it feels a little bland in comparison, especially with trapezoid Aluminium lid. There are no crazy patterns or whacky RGB lighting on the lid. Instead, it’s a very ultrabook-esque matte metallic finish. The Asus logo glows, but I never saw it display a myriad of colours like its ROG counterparts. There is ROG-inspired cross pattern, but the effect is dialled down to such an extent that it often feels like a normal laptop. The cutout towards the hinge for showing the LED indicators for power, processor involvement and the aeroplane mode gives the much-needed gaming laptop zing.advertisement The massive exhaust for the heat sink at the top edge means business, especially with the red coloured fins. However, compared to older TUF models, this one also features an additional heat vent towards the right side, with no ports to accompany it. Asus as moved all the ports to the other side, which I think is a clever touch to enhance ease of use. The speakers are located at a slanted angle with a red grille accent.The TUF FX505 offers a fairly decent choice of connectivity options. All the ports are located to the right side. There are two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, one HDMI port, an RJ 45 Ethernet port and a 3.5mm headphone.Open the lid and entire understated theme of the exterior is offset by the typical gaming laptop-esque interior. Yes, there are crazy lines and patterns on the plastic base. The pattern is reminiscent of Asus’ trademark brushed Aluminium finish. A very cool addition is the TUF Gaming logo printed on the right side. On the deck, there’s an RGB backlit keyboard and a fairly big trackpad laid out spaciously. The lid holds a standard 15.6-inch display with narrow bezels to the sides. This makes for an overall compact form factor compared to previous models. The bottom has a very impressive vent design for the fans to suck while the laptop is busy playing games. On the whole, the TUF FX505 has very understated looks on the outside but a very “oo-la la” gaming-inspired design on the inside. This is good enough for people who don’t want to embarrass themselves everytime they take out their laptop for doing basic work.Asus TUF FX505 display:I have used a lot of Asus laptops in my time as a tech journalist and I have maintained the notion that Asus offers the best display on its laptop in that category. With the TUF FX505, nothing changes. The 15.6-inch full HD IPS LCD display with a matte finish works well in resenting smudges. Boot up the laptop and the brilliance of the display is immediately visible. The display features a wider dynamic range with very vibrant colours and adequate brightness. Even while using it outdoors, the display is easily visible. The contrast is very high and makes for a very AMOLED-like viewing experience, especially with its deep blacks. The display does lose colour accuracy a little when viewed from extreme angles, but considering only one person plays at a time on a laptop, this isn’t much of a bother.advertisement However, what I loved about the display is the butter-smooth refresh rate. At 144Hz, everything just flows on the display. Whether you are watching the latest Netflix title or driving an F1 car at the Belgian Grand Prix in F1 2017, the 144Hz refresh rate means you will want to see more content on this display. Even navigating around Windows on this laptop makes for a great experience. Well done Asus.Asus TUF FX505 specifications and performance:With any gaming laptop, performance is expected to be top-notch. At the heart of the TUF FX505 lies Intel’s latest 8th Gen core i7-8750H CPU clocked at 2.20GHz. With overboost, the clock speeds can go up to 4.10GHz. The i7-8750H is one of the powerful variants of the Core i7 family with a hexa-core setup. Asus has paired this processor with a dedicated Nvidia GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB of VRAM. As standard, you get 16GB of DDR4 2666RAM. For storage, there’s a 256GB SSD and a 1TB 5400RPM Firecuda HDD. As usual, there’s a genuine copy of Windows 10 Home looking after the daily errands.With a laptop like this focused solely on performance, it hardly makes sense as to speak about how fast stuff happens. The usual Windows tasks such as opening applications and shuffling between several folders at a time are no big deal for the TUF FX505. With 16GB of RAM, multitasking with 4-5 web browsers, each holding at least 5 tabs is a breeze.The TUF FX505 has very understated looks on the outside but a very “oo-la la” gaming-inspired design on the inside.Since gaming is what this laptop is born to do, I tried some the latest titles on the TUF FX505 and I was left fairly impressed. F1 2017 ran on the highest graphical settings with an average frame rate of 60. Since the GTX 1060 is now a little older, the ultra graphics settings made the game drop frame rates slightly. Forza Motorsport 7 ran on high graphics with no issues, but the ultra settings weren’t that gamer-friendly. Fortnite ran like a dream at the highest possible graphics. Older titles from a few years ago such as PES 2017 and Grand Theft Auto 5 were able to exploit the resources fully. War Thunder, which is an online multiplayer title with high fidelity graphics was handled very well at the “High” settings. The thermal management is on-spot. There’s a HyperCool Technology involving a dual fan system to suck air from the bottom and throw it out of the vents situated on the sides. When you aren’t gaming, the fans keep spinning at a bare minimum speed. However, when you are busy shedding sweat on virtual battlefields, the fans start spinning at their max speeds to keep the processor from sweating. There’s a boost button to put the fans in overboost mode if you feel the laptop is heating up.Windows 10 isn’t a very well-optimised operating system, especially with some updates having the ability to make or break the ultimate experience. However, Asus’ optimisation and certain custom add-ons make sure the experience stands up to what’s been promised. Asus’ custom TUF aura core app manages the RGB lighting of the keyboard. The application is a watered-down version of the version on ROG laptops with only four lighting modes. There’s no ROG centre for monitoring the live clock speed or other statistics of the computer. Maybe Asus could do something about this, considering the asking price goes above a lakh for this laptop.advertisementIn its category, the Asus TUF FX505 is easily one of the best gaming laptops you can buy right now.Since a laptop also needs to be used for other purposes, I used the TUF FX505 as my primary computer for a few days. For the most part, it impressed me with its versatility. The keyboard is comfortable to type a long document and the higher key travel makes it a satisfying experience. The RGB backlight isn’t in your face even when it’s at full brightness. The slight curvature of the keys reduces ghosting by a huge margin. The trackpad is fairly comfortable to use and is very accurate. However, I would have preferred a slightly bigger trackpad for easier user experience. While all of this makes for a great work laptop, the sheer bulk of the FX505 restricts the usage to indoors. I wouldn’t carry this outdoors for lighter work such as writing documents and browsing the Internet.When it comes to the audio, the inbuilt speakers are a massive improvement from the previous versions. With passive amplification, the speakers can get fairly loud with a focus on higher frequencies. However, it still lacks base and isn’t suitable for gaming. If you are playing PUBG, make sure you plug in your headphones as the 3.5mm audio port supports 7.1 channel surround sound. This elevates the gaming experience further.Asus TUF FX505 battery:With a 3 -Cell 48Wh polymer battery, it’s a fairly standard affair. On battery power, the FX505 can at most last up to an hour and 15 minutes while playing games. However, when you are not gaming and using it as a conventional laptop, the stamina can go up to 4.5 hours. Since gaming will mostly take place when the device is plugged in, the smaller battery stamina isn’t bothersome. To fill it up quickly, Asus has enabled a fast-changing technology with a 180W fast charger. It should fill up to 60 per cent within an hour.Should you buy the Asus TUF FX505 gaming laptop? As with all gaming gear, the Asus TUF FX505 is quite expensive. But, in its category, this is easily one of the best gaming laptops you can buy right now. The Intel Core i7-8750H is a super fast performer while the Nvidia GTX 1060 GPU is fairly powerful to manage the latest gaming titles without breaking a sweat. I also adore the extensive heat management system and the butter-smooth 144Hz display. For competing at e-sports events, this is a laptop that can hold it for longer sessions while you are busy making a name for yourself. Surely, as a gamer, I would have preferred some crazy eye-catching design as well as a slimmer overall profile inspired from the ROG series.Despite that, the TUF FX505 is a very powerful gaming laptop for Rs 1,29,990. The laptop doesn’t disappoint in terms of raw performance and is surely a dependable gear for hardcore gamers.ALSO READ | Asus VivoBook X505ZA review: Powerful AMD Ryzen chip, lightweight build make this budget laptop desirableALSO READ | MacBook Air 2018 13-inch review: Air re-imagined but not re-inventedALSO READ | iPad Pro 12.9-inch review: Closer than ever to replacing your laptopAsus TUF FX505 review 8/10ProsReliable performanceRobust build qualityUltra-smooth 144Hz displayConsSub-par battery lifeUnimpressive designThick profileGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Spurs’ Kane hits 93rd minute wonder-goal to sink Juventus in Singapore

By on

first_img Reuters SingaporeJuly 21, 2019UPDATED: July 21, 2019 22:02 IST Harry Kane overshadowed crowd favourite Cristiano Ronaldo with a sublime goal in last-minutes. (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSHarry Kane’s last-gasp goal completed a comeback after Cristiano Ronaldo put Juventus 2-1 in frontSpurs midfielder Erik Lamela scored the only goal of the first half, striking from close range in the 31st minuteTottenham Hotspur defeat Juventus 3-2 in an enthralling International Champions Cup contestTottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane scored what he called one of the best goals of his career to beat Italian champions Juventus 3-2 in an enthralling International Champions Cup contest in Singapore on Sunday.Kane capitalised after teammate Lucas Moura nicked the ball deep into injury time, allowing the striker to thump it from the halfway line high into the steamy night and over the head of Juventus’ back-pedaling goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.His goal completed a comeback after Cristiano Ronaldo put Juventus 2-1 in front.It is probably one of the best goals of my career, Kane said.I could see in parts of the game the keeper was off the line. I thought if I get a chance to shoot, I’ll shoot and thankfully it went in.Spurs midfielder Erik Lamela scored the only goal of the first half, striking from close range in the 31st minute after Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon palmed a shot from teenage striker Troy Parrott into his path.In a more lively second half, Juventus substitute Gonzalo Higuain equalized in the 56th minute after some neat interplay on the edge of the box gave him the space to place it low into the right corner.Then up stepped crowd-favourite Ronaldo.Defender Mattia De Sciglio cut the ball back to the Portuguese who drilled it across the keeper in his last touch before he was replaced.But Juventus’ lead did not last long. In the 65th minute, Moura got on the end of a pinpoint pass from Tanguy Ndombele, the French midfielder who joined Spurs for a club-record fee earlier this month.advertisementIn the closing stages, Higuain had a decent chance to break the deadlock. But it was Kane’s wonder-goal – which came after Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot lost the ball – which sealed the win in the dying seconds.It was a great goal. Unbelievable from Harry. It is good for him to set off pre-season with scoring, said Spurs coach Mauricio Pochettino.The International Champions Cup features 12 teams playing friendly matches in venues in North America, Europe and Asia.Also See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
