He’s fundamental – Messi hails Argentina goalkeeper

Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, has named Aston Villa shot-stopper, Emiliano Martinez, as ‘one of the best goalkeepers in the world’. The Paris Saint-Germain forward also described Martinez as ‘fundamental’, adding that he has established himself in the game. Messi said this following Martinez’s impressive display for Argentina in their 3-0 win over Uruguay in a World Cup qualifier in the earlier hours of Monday. Martinez made two stunning saves to keep out Atletico Madrid’s Luis Suarez in the first half before goals from Messi, Rodrigo De Paul and Lautaro Martinez gave Argentina the win over Uruguay. “Dibu [Emiliano] Martinez is fundamental,” said Messi, via TNT Sports. “When they come to him, he always responds. “He established himself in goal and we have one of the ...

Brentford stun West Ham as Wissa strikes late

Yoane Wissa scored a dramatic late winner for Brentford as they beat West Ham 2-1 and continued their impressive start to Premier League life. It was hard to know who were the newly-promoted side and who were playing in Europe as Brentford pummelled West Ham in the first half, grabbing a deserved lead when Bryan Mbeumo's strike was awarded by the goal-line technology on 20 minutes. West Ham responded after the break and Jarrod Bowen's pure, half-volleyed finished drew them level with 10 minutes remaining. An assault on the Bees' goal was expected but, led by Pontus Jansson, the visitors managed the situation and created one last chance for themselves when Jansson's header was saved and the rebound was brilliantly hammered home by Wissa. The win means Brentford head into the...

Anthony Joshua’s defeat to Usyk could be beginning of the end for him

On Saturday night, Britain and Nigeria watched in collective horror, as Oleksandr Usyk outclassed Anthony Joshua in their heavyweight fight. At the end of 12 rounds, there was no dissenting voice as to who the clear winner was. The judges’ result sheets read: 117-112, 116-112 and 115-113. Usyk’s speed and skill proved to be too much for Joshua, who was saved by the bell. It was brutal. And it was Andy Ruiz Jr all over again. In 2019, Joshua was stunned by the Mexican who ripped him of all his titles for the first time. Before the fight, Joshua was accused of being too nice to the Ruiz Jr, who he even allowed to hold his belts at the press conference. Dilian Whyte’s warning before the bout was stark. “Joshua can be mentally fragile sometimes, so Usyk can get in his...

EPL: Moyes reacts to Mark Noble’s missed penalty against Man Utd

West Ham manager, David Moyes, has defended his decision to bring on Mark Noble, to take a stoppage-time penalty against Manchester United. With virtually the last kick of the game, Noble was introduced from the bench to take the spot kick, after Luke Shaw was punished for handball. The midfielder saw his poor effort saved by David De Gea, as United won 2-1. Moyes has rejected talk that their recent record of four misses from their last five came into his mind when he made the decision. Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “The thinking behind it? Look at his record. “I’d have been more disappointed if I hadn’t made the decision. “I made the decision, and it didn’t quite work today. I was more influenced by Noble’s record, rather than West Ham’s record.”

West Ham vs Man Utd: Solskjaer delivers verdict on ‘stonewall’ penalties not awarded to Ronaldo

Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has given his verdict on two ‘stonewall’ penalties not awarded to Cristiano Ronaldo during his side’s Premier League 2-1 win against West Ham on Sunday. Two goals from Ronaldo and Jesse Lingard gave Man United all three points against the Hammers at the London Stadium. Man United goalkeeper, David de Gea, also saved Mark Noble’s penalty in the 95th minute during the encounter. But Solskjaer feels the Red Devils United should have had two penalties of their own, both for fouls on Ronaldo. “Two [penalties United should have been awarded] first and the last,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “I think they are stonewall you can’t even argue them. I think the first one the lad puts his leg up, Cristiano runs straight and is fouled. “Th...

Jordan Henderson's superb finish gave Liverpool a 3-2 victory from behind over AC Milan in a thrilling opening-night clash in Champions League Group B. Liverpool burst out of the traps and were 1-0 up early on through Fikayo Tomori's own goal from a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross (9), before Mo Salah saw his penalty saved by Mike Maignan (14), his first miss in 17 for Liverpool.

West Brom go top despite being held by Millwall

West Brom moved top of the Sky Bet Championship but had to settle for a 1-1 draw against dogged Millwall at The Hawthorns. Albion extended their unbeaten run to six games in the league but their four-match winning run ended after captain Kyle Bartley's 49th-minute header was cancelled out by on-loan Arsenal defender Daniel Ballard's header six minutes later. A draw was a fair result with Albion winger Grady Diangana missing an early chance and striker Karlan Grant's penalty saved by Bartosz Bialkowski in the first half, while Millwall pair Jed Wallace and Sheyi Ojo were denied by goalkeeper Sam Johnstone. The visitors spent much of the first half defending but actually created the first opening. Billy Mitchell unleashed a low effort that forced Johnstone into a diving save. But...

Responding to a question from ESPN, Chiellini responded in Italian: “Hello Christian, I confirm everything!

Morata hero to zero as Italy beat Spain on pens to reach final

Jorginho scored the winning spot-kick after Alvaro Morata's penalty was saved in Italy's shoot-out win over Spain, which sends them into Sunday's Euro 2020 final. Spain striker Morata - who has been criticised throughout the tournament - had tasted redemption when he stepped off the bench to strike his side's equaliser in normal time, after Federico Chiesa had scored on the break for Italy. However, he never looked confident from 12 yards and when his tame effort was saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma, his former Chelsea team-mate Jorginho coolly rolled in his clinching kick.
