Germany boss Loew embraces World Cup favourites tag

first_img0Shares0000Germany’s head coach Joachim Loew oversees a training session on the eve of a friendly match against France, in Cologne, on November 13, 2017 © AFP/File / PATRIK STOLLARZBERLIN, Germany, Nov 30 – Joachim Loew is comfortable with Germany carrying the favourites tag for next year’s World Cup, but the head coach has a few areas to strengthen before his team’s title defence in Russia.England or Spain are lurking in pot two as potential group-stage opponents for the world champions in Friday’s draw at Moscow. Loew talked about the 2018 finals as being “the hardest tournament so far” of his 12-year reign in charge, because the Germans will be the team to beat.“I am completely relaxed and don’t have any sleepless nights,” insisted Loew after a 2-2 draw against France in their final friendly of 2017 a fortnight ago.Germany are in rude health and unbeaten in their last 21 internationals, dating back to the defeat by France in the Euro 2016 semi-finals.“We have worked on building an incredibly good base. We know what we can do, so I am not nervous anymore about our preparations,” he added.Germany’s players pose for the team photograph ahead of their friendly match against England, at Wembley Stadium in London, on November 10, 2017 © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKLoew’s goal is to arrive in Russia with every position covered, but he needs key players to return from injury and to find understudies for wing-backs Jonas Hector and Joshua Kimmich.Borussia Dortmund playmaker Marco Reus has been out since May with a knee injury, while captain and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is not expected back until January at the earliest after fracturing his foot.Juventus defender Benedikt Hoewedes and Dortmund winger Andre Schuerrle, both of whom played in the 2014 final victory over Argentina, are out of form.– Midfield options –However, he is not short of options, especially in midfield.Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan is back fit after a serious knee injury while Mario Goetze, whose extra-time goal won the final three years ago, is shining in a struggling Dortmund team after recovering from a metabolic disorder.Loew’s gamble to rest all of his 2014 stars and take an inexperienced squad to the Confederations Cup in Russia earlier this year paid off when they beat Chile 1-0 to win the tournament.Midfielder Leon Goretzka and forward Lars Stindl forced their way into Loew’s World Cup plans with strong displays.Timo Werner proved himself as a fleet-footed striker with great finishing, ending Germany’s wait for a replacement for Miroslav Klose.The World Cup’s all-time top-scorer with 16 goals retired from international duty after Brazil, and will carry the trophy onto the stage for the draw.The Germans cruised through qualifying with 10 wins, and Loew has secured tough opponents for friendlies next March, against Spain in Duesseldorf and Brazil in Berlin, to further test his plans.This will be his last chance to look at potential combinations before the squad is announced in May and by his own admission, Germany are not yet firing on all cylinders.In November friendlies, Gareth Southgate’s England were unlucky to finish with only a goalless draw after largely outplaying the Germans at Wembley.Only a last-gasp equaliser from Stindl rescued another draw with France in Cologne.“Even after this outstanding year, our game still needs to click, things need to become automatic,” said Loew.It is still unclear where the Germans will be based for the World Cup, the main options being Moscow and Sochi.Team manager Oliver Bierhoff preaches the practicalities of Moscow, the main hub for flights around the world’s biggest country.However, the players raved about the benefits of Sochi’s beach and sea-air when they were based on the Black Sea for the Confederations Cup.“One has to look at lots of aspects, also the logistics,” said Bierhoff.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Conte will ‘not forget’ war of words with Mourinho

first_img“He said serious words, he has used serious words. And I won’t forget this,” he said ahead of his side’s League Cup semi-final first leg with Arsenal on Wednesday.“I think it’s not important, the association, you understand. It’s not important.“This is not a problem for the club, it’s a problem between me and him. Now I stop. Stop.”Conte — who was acquitted of sporting fraud charges in 2016 over accusations he failed to report episodes of match-fixing while in charge at Serie B side Siena in 2011 — said he had no regrets about his response to Mourinho’s attack.The former Juventus and Italy coach labelled Mourinho ‘a little man’ over his remarks on match-fixing, and prior to that suggested the Portuguese was suffering from senile dementia for forgetting how he used to celebrate wildly on the touchline.Mourinho had provoked the latter riposte by saying he no longer ‘acts like a clown’ on the touchline which was seen as a barb at both Conte and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.“Do I have the look of a person with regret? I don’t think so,” said Conte.“I think we both said things, and we’ll see what happens in future.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Chelsea’s head coach Antonio Conte (R), pictured with Manchester United manager Jose Morinho in 2016, wants to move past his dispute with his rival © AFP/File / GLYN KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 9 – Antonio Conte says he will “not forget” Jose Mourinho’s personal slight about match-fixing, but the Chelsea manager added Tuesday he wants to call a halt to the increasingly bitter dispute with his Manchester United counterpart.The 48-year-old Italian — who served a four-month ban in Italy in 2012 in relation to a match-fixing scandal but has always denied wrongdoing relating to his time as coach of Siena — said he did not want the League Managers’ Association (LMA) to intervene.last_img read more

Classic transfer: Man United sign South American midfield ace for £28m from Serie A

first_img1 Juan Sebastian Veron signed for Man United in 2001 Man United have been given a boost in their chase for Chile and Juventus man Arturo Vidal following the departure of manager Antonio Conte. If the transfer goes through, fans will hope the South American midfielder with a big reputation settles better than the very expensive Argentine they splashed out on 13 years ago…Juan Veron’s arrival promised so much. The 26-year-old was highly regarded throughout Europe when Sir Fergie dipped into his wallet for the Argentina international in July 2001, but it ended in disappointment.First that summer, the Red Devils manager handed PSV £19m for striker Ruud van Nistelrooy, then he paid Lazio £28.1m for Veron, who had won the League and Cup double in Italy.It was hoped these expensive recruits would help United conquer Europe again, having won a hat-trick of Premier League titles, but failed to build on the Champions League glory of 1999, which had been kick-started by the signings of Dwight Yorke and Jaap Stam in 1998.Veron’s manager at Lazio, Sven-Goran Eriksson, had encouraged him to make the move, while the Argentine was pleased to be joining a team with David Beckham, Roy Keane and Paul Scholes in midfield.There was genuine excitement from the player at joining such an illustrious club. His dad, Juan, had scored against them while playing for Estudiantes in the 1968 World Club Cup and had regaled his son with stories of Old Trafford, so it was an honour to be able to call himself a Man United player.Could the reigning Premier League champions now go on and establish a period of dominance on the continent? The answer was no.Veron’s arrival meant a tactical reshuffle for Ferguson that negated the cavalier attacking that had characterised United’s success over the previous decade, edging Scholes to the periphery and restricting the club’s traditional threat from the flanks.By the end of the 2001/02 season, Arsenal had relieved them of their domestic crown as the Gunners completed the double.Ferguson responded by tweaking his tactics and United managed to wrestle the trophy back in 2003; though Veron showed flashes of his brilliance, his days at Old Trafford were numbered and he was sold to nouveau riche Chelsea for £15m that year.But his fortunes in England didn’t improve and he spent a season at Stamford Bridge before being loaned to Inter, then first club Estudiantes, returning to Argentina permanently in 2007.last_img read more

Tottenham striker vows to look after England new-boy Dele Alli after first senior call up

first_imgHarry Kane has promised to look after teenage team-mate Dele Alli when the Tottenham pair meet up with England next week.The striker’s rise from being Spurs’ third-choice striker to becoming one of the most talked about players in the country is well-documented.But Kane’s goal-laden breakthrough season has brought with it increased scrutiny and pressure, making the 22-year-old well-placed to help Alli deal with being thrust into the spotlight.Five months on from playing in Sky Bet League One with MK Dons, the 19-year-old is in line to make his England debut after being called up for the Euro 2016 qualifiers against Estonia and Lithuania.“I think he has deserved it – he has been outstanding for us this season,” Kane said of the news.“He has come in and for such a young lad has settled very well. I am sure he is excited and everyone here is very proud of him. I don’t think he can wait to get going.“I congratulated him when the squad was announced. He was absolutely over the moon.”Kane believes this will prove to be just the start of a “long international career” for Alli and he will try to make his first steps as seamless as possible. “I will probably spend most of my time with him there because we are Spurs and I want to look after him, make sure he settles in all right,” Kane said.“That is what it is about. He is really excited about it.“Andros (Townsend) was there (when Kane was first called up), (Kyle) Walker was there, who had been there before.“Obviously me and Ryan (Mason) went in together and were quite new. We kind of hung out together until we got to know the players and trained with them.“Everyone is so welcoming. No one will give him a hard time. We will work hard.“You always wonder what it is like but you soon settle, and he knows St George’s Park from the Under-21s.“It will be fine, just a step up in level and training.” Harry Kane celebrates with Dele Alli 1last_img read more

SEAMUS: ‘I’M SORRY FOR FA CUP MISTAKE AGAINST LIVERPOOL’

first_imgEVERTON star Seamus Coleman has apologised to fans of the club after his error led to Liverpool’s win in the semi-final of the FA Cup on Saturday.The Killybegs man was a substitute and was brought on to give his team some bite as the Merseyside club were locked at 1-1 with Liverpool dominating.And he soon made his presence felt, closing down the Reds players at every opportunity. He was however booked.And four minutes of time he was lucky to stay on the pitch as he clattered Steven Gerrard on the edge of the box.From the resulting 86th minute free kick, Craig Bellamy whipped in a cross for Liverpool’s Andy Carroll to head home the winner and put Liverpool through to next month’s final against Chelsea.Today the former St Catherine’s and Sligo Rovers player took to twitter to apologise to Everton fans. Coleman tweeted: “Really bad decision by me to give the free kick away. I apologise to all the fans who made there way to wembley! Sorry.”Previous articles:https://www.donegaldaily.com/2012/04/14/heartache-for-coleman-as-error-sends-liverpool-to-fa-cup-final/https://www.donegaldaily.com/2012/04/15/coleman-not-certain-to-make-irelands-euro-2012-squad-trapattoni/  SEAMUS: ‘I’M SORRY FOR FA CUP MISTAKE AGAINST LIVERPOOL’ was last modified: April 16th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:SEAMUS: ‘I’M SORRY FOR FA CUP MISTAKE AGAINST LIVERPOOL’last_img read more

ALL-IRELAND GAA GLORY FOR ARRANMORE MEN

first_imgArranmore Island caused a huge shock by winning the Island All-Ireland Gaelic football tournament on Arranmore yesterday afternoon.This hugely popular annual event brings all the islands together in September of every year.Representing Donegal, Arranmore have had a very poor record in this tournament and had never progressed past the group stages. However, on home soil, the lads defied the odds and hopefully have paved the way for the Donegal minor and seniors to bring more All-Ireland trophies back to the hills.Despite Arranmore being a soccer stronghold, many of the island lads have sporadically represented GAA clubs in Donegal, Derry and Dublin as well as further afield in Chicago, London and New York.This weekend, Arranmore men and diaspora made a huge effort to come home and along with members of Arranmore Utd, they gelled and played some absolutely scintillating football.Arranmore lost their first group game to defending champions Clare Island from Mayo but managed to qualify for the semi final as they narrowly beat Whiddy Island from Cork. Despite being down 6 points in the semi-final against Inis Bofin from Galway, the Arranmore men scored 10 unanswered points to progress to the final where once again they were up against Clare Island.Both teams were lead onto the field by the Arranmore pipe band and a huge crowd of 600 Gaels were treated to a memorable final.In a hard, physical but fair match both teams traded blow for blow and score for score which had the spectators on the edge of their seats.Clare island who were going for four in a row started the better.But the underdogs, who had huge support from the locals and from other Islands, slowly but surely turned the screw and ran out very worthy winners on a score line of 1-14 to 1-11 with player of the tournament Benny McGarvey scoring 8 points. Other notable performances from the islanders were Shane and Blaine McGuckin, Daniel O’Donnell, Declan and Conor Proctor.When referee Myles Sweeney blew the final whistle there was both joy and disbelief from Arranmore and indeed other islands.Huge credit must go to Conal Kavanagh, Chris McGuckin and Neil Gallagher for gelling the team together at such short notice.This annual event brings the islands together and this is a very special event which gives islanders a chance to both compete and socialise once a year. Upwards of 300 islanders from all over Ireland travelled to Arranmore which boosted the local economy greatly.Arranmore didn’t fare out as well in the ladies tournament which was won by a very young and talented Clare Island side.Next year the tournament will be held in Inis Turk in County Mayo where Arranmore will proudly defend and represent Tìr Chonaill.ALL-IRELAND GAA GLORY FOR ARRANMORE MEN was last modified: September 7th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:newsSportlast_img read more
