Replay showed that Marcelo could have been offside, but Replay showed that Marcelo could have been offside, but the goal stood. Even as Dynamos tried to come back into the game, Sony Norde dribbled past Souvik Chakraborty and slotted the ball at the far bottom corner. Mumbai were sitting pretty at that stage with a two-goal cushion again. But there was more to come as Dynamos rallied to find the net through Badji. Malouda played the ball to Badji and he only had Volpato to beat, and he did that successfully. As the Mumbai goalkeeper came out rushing to collect the ball, the referee called for penalty, and Marcelinho managed to beat Volpato with a wonderful spot kick. The goalkeeper guessed it correctly as he dived to the right, but the ball evaded his fingertips. Mumbai made three changes from their 1-0 loss to Blasters. David Lalrinmuana, Boithang Haokip and Cardozo went out and in came Sony Norde, for his first appearance, Pronay Halder and Sena Ralte. For Dynamos, goalkeeper Toni Doblas alongside the likes of sweepers Lalchhawnkima, Ruben Rocha and holding midfielder Marcos Tebar were benched for this game and included in their places were former Aizawl goalkeeper Soram Poirei, David Addy and Ibrahima Niasse.

Luka Modric has said his former Real Madrid team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo told him he deserved to win the 2017-18 UEFA Player of the Year award.Modric beat out Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah for the award, which was presented last week at the Champions League draw in Monaco.As a result of his snub, Ronaldo was a no-show at the event, with his agent Jorge Mendes later saying that his client not winning was “ridiculous and shameful.” Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram?

Widespread reports had suggested that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was disgruntled after missing out on the accolade, given his goalscoring exploits for Real Madrid last year. But in private, the Portugal and Juventus star took a more conciliatory approach to his former club team-mate, who led Croatia to the World Cup final this summer. Speaking after Portugal and Croatia played out a 1-1 friendly draw on Thursday, Modric said Ronaldo told him that he deserved to win the award. “Cristiano sent me a message, congratulated me and told me he is happy for me and I deserved it,” Modric told RTP3 after the game.”He also said he can’t wait to meet me again.”Ronaldo did not play in Thursday’s game, as he is rested ahead of a long club season with new side Juventus.

Manchester United are not playing exciting football and lack direction under Jose Mourinho according to Louis Saha.While sweeping their way to 13 Premier League titles with Sir Alex Ferguson at the helm, the Red Devils were renowned for their attacking mindset.A different philosophy has been adopted by the club’s current coach, with Mourinho having enjoyed considerable success as a manager who builds on strong foundations at the back.

Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! He has faced criticism for that approach during his time at Old Trafford, with pressure mounting on him once more as cracks begin to appear throughout the current United team.The Red Devils are finding clean sheets and victories hard to come by at present, while there remains a lack of spark in the final third of the field.Asked by Sky Sports whether United are an entertaining side to watch, former striker Saha said: “Not as much as before, that is for sure.“It’s easy for me to say that, but I don’t know what is going on inside.“There is an indication for me as a striker that they don’t have the indication. It seems like they don’t know where to go, they don’t have the animation when you feel like there is some kind of understanding.”Mourinho is the man who must find the answers to the questions being asked of United, with a number of former Old Trafford stars having suggested that he could be on borrowed time.Saha agrees that things do not look good, with a proven tactician struggling to bring anything out of an inconsistent side that continues to do its manager few favours.The Frenchman added: “Mourinho has to deal with the nonchalance that some players could have, maybe sometimes the lack of experience that they have.“It’s all about him trying to coach and trying to give them the indication of what exactly he wants. Right now, we don’t see this.”United, who have just one home victory to their name this season from the opening weekend, have gone three matches without a win across all competitions.Their next opportunity to get back on track will see them host Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday, while another outing at Old Trafford is set to be taken in against Newcastle on Saturday.

IPL-10’s first hat-trick man Samuel Badree was not celebrating for his exceptional feat as he was disappointed at his side Royal Challengers Bangalore’s defeat against Mumbai Indians here today. (Stats: Samuel Badree 12th bowler to take Indian Premier League hat-trick)”Yeah, of course. It is a special day. It was a Good Friday. It was a Good Friday for me. Unfortunately, it was not a Good Friday for the team. I just think we did not have enough runs on board,” Badree told reporters at the post-match press conference. (Samuel Badree takes first hat-trick of IPL 2017 as RCB take charge vs Mumbai Indians)”It is a nice feeling to get a hat-trick. To get three wickets in the Powerplay — normally teams chasing lose games but unfortunately it did not go our way tonight. Tremendous feeling to get a hat-trick but it could have been so much better if we had won,” said the leg-spinner who took the wickets of Parthiv Patel, Mitchell McClenaghan and Rohit Sharma in three successive deliveries in the third over of Mumbai’s run chase. (Kieron Pollard’s 70 trumps Samuel Badree’s hat-trick as Mumbai defeat Bangalore)Despite Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli laying a good foundation, RCB did not get enough runs on the board to give a fight to Mumbai Indians, who rode to victory on the back of batting exploits of Kieron Pollard and Krunal Pandya. (Also Read: Virat Kohli hammers 27th fifty on return, becomes leading run-scorer in IPL history)”We had a good foundation, Chris at the beginning and Virat after that. But I just think we did not score enough runs. Credit needs to be given to Pollard and Krunal the way they batted with maturity,” said Badree. (Kieron Pollard happy to deliver in situation when champions are made)advertisementOn Pollard, Badree said, “Yeah, he got some balls in the arc and backed his strengths, which is down the ground. He batted with maturity. He showed a lot of guts and character and credit needs to be given to Krunal as well,” he added.Asked what went wrong with RCB’s batting, Badree said the team was a bit under par with the bat as 160 to 170-odd runs would have been a better score on a pitch which was slow.”It was the pitch, I think it was a bit slow. At the end of the day 142 was not special. I think we needed excess of 160. We looked at 160-170 at one stage, but did not capitalise on the start we got. All in all, we were a bit under-par with the bat,” said the West Indian.Asked about Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma’s weakness against leg-spin, Badree said, “I don’t think we had any specific strategy against Rohit Sharma per se, it was about the conditions.”He also said it was a tough decision to leave Shane Watson out and getting himself in because the management could have taken the decision keeping in mind drier conditions where spinners could be effective than the seamers.
Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis feared he might miss the ICC Champions Trophy after picking up an injury while playing for Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League (IPL), the 27-year-old admitted on Sunday.Stoinis injured his shoulder while diving during a fielding drill in a May 5 tie against Royal Challengers Bangalore and immediately returned to Australia for further assessment.”Definitely,” he told www.cricket.co.au when asked if he thought he’d be forced to miss the tournament.”Initially they said it would be 4-6 weeks in a sling, but then that changed when I got home and it calmed down a little bit. It’s been good since then,” revealed the middle-order batsman who was part of Australia’s bitterly fought India tour before the IPL.Australia begin their Champions Trophy campaign against New Zealand on June 2.”With an injury, the first thing (you think about) is what you’re going to miss out on,” Stoinis continued.”So I tried to forget about that stuff as soon as I could because then you could go into a bit of a spiral, which is not a good place to be.”It’s all on track. I’ve been working pretty closely with the physios and everyone seems to be happy with how it’s going,” he added.It remains to be seen whether Stoinis is drafted in the first XI or not but if his unavailability would have meant one option less for Steve Smith and co.Stoinis produced one of Australia’s greatest ODI innings earlier this year when he bludgeoned a remarkable 146 not out against New Zealand at Eden Park, having been elevated into the squad when both skipper Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner missed the series.advertisement”It’s such a good team and there’s probably only a few guaranteed spots in there so everything’s up for grabs,” he said.Besides Smith and David Warner, ODI performers like Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell and Travis Head, Stoinis could be battling fellow all-rounder Moises Henriques and batting powerhouse Chris Lynn for a spot in Australia’s top six.Stoinis said he would want to make a mark in the practice games.”We’ve got a couple of practice games … you’ve just got to take your opportunity and hopefully I get one. “You don’t get many opportunities in the Australian cricket team … so it was good to take that (chance) early on and hopefully that stands me in good stead for the competition,” he said.

We are extremely glad to have Vivo as the title sponsor and look forward to an enriching affiliation for both stakeholders,” BCCI Acting President CK Khanna said. “We received an overwhelming response for the title sponsorship rights and we are glad to have Vivo back on board. It is a renewal of a fruitful relationship with the brand that will extend for the next five years,” added Acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary. Pepsi claimed the rights in 2013, bidding Rs 396 crore for five years. The company had taken over from real estate group DLF, which was the tournaments maiden title sponsor from 2008 to 2012.

New Delhi, Aug 4 (PTI) The National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) today requested the Central Government to reconsider the GST tax structure of sports goods and shooting equipment. NRAI Senior Vice President and Member of Parliament, Kalikesh Narain Singh Deo, raised the issue of Goods and Services Tax (GST) on shooting and sports equipment, in the Zero Hour of Lok Sabha today. Speaking at the Parliament, Singh Deo said, “Shooting has been one of the highest medal winners for India in international sports events, including Asian and Olympic level championship. In fact, India stands to gain most in terms of medals tally, if shooting is promoted.” “Earlier renowned shooters were exempt from payment of custom duty for importing guns and ammunition. This was instrumental in building an array of potential Olympic medal winners. However, the new GST regime levies higher tax on importing of such goods. This will adversely affect the spirit of sports in our country. “It will especially reduce the potential of shooting to earn medals on behalf of India. I therefore request the Government to reconsider the GST tax structure of sports goods and shooting equipment in order to encourage participation of youngsters in the area of sports,” he added.

American Sam Kendricks capped his memorable, unbeaten season by wining the pole vault at the World Championships on Tuesday as the title once again eluded world record holder and former Olympic champion Renaud Lavillenie.Kendricks, a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army reserve, cleared 5.95 metres while Poland’s Piotr Lisek took the silver and Lavillenie had to be content with a fourth world bronze despite producing his best leap of the season.Lisek, joint bronze medallist in Beijing two years ago, and Frenchman Lavillenie, who also won silver in 2013, both cleared 5.89 but the Pole took silver on countback.Olympic champions Fabio Braz pulled out last month due to form and fitness problems.Kendricks, unbeaten in 2017 after 10 competitions outdoors and one indoors, was again in imperious form as he moved through the first five heights without a failure.The 24-year-old, who barely picked his pole for five months during the autumn and winter while on active duty, failed his first two attempts at 5.95 before clearing the third to a huge roar.”It is all part of a mission for me. I make a goal and chop it down to make it attainable. I’ve finally got that world title and I could not be happier,” Kendricks said.”It was another fantastic competition today and I had to jump high to take the gold.”Lisek had two failures at 5.65 and another at 5.82 before deciding to move to 5.89 which he cleared at the first attempt but the next height proved a bridge too far.advertisementLavillenie, unable to start training until May because of a foot injury, has been short of confidence and form all season and has failed to register a win in five appearances on the Diamond League circuit.He had one failure and skipped two rounds before reaching 5.95 metres where he was agonisingly close on his second attempt, clearing the bar but nudging it on the way down.Lavillenie then opted to move to 6.01 where his challenge ended.Titleholder Shawn Barber of Canada struggled all evening and never looked in contention.He had one failure at the lowest height of 5.50 and only just avoided elimination at 5.65 which he cleared at the third attempt despite clipping the bar, before going out at 5.75.Germany’s Raphael Holzdeppe, who won the title four years ago in Moscow, fared even worse as he was eliminated in the very first round at 5.50.Belgian’s Arnaud Art made an unfortunate exit at the first height, falling on his third attempt after his hands slipped from the pole.
Manchester United’s Juan Mata prefers to play as an attacking midfielder but the Spaniard has praised his team mates for helping him to flourish on the right wing, the 29-year-old said ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with rivals Liverpool.In more than 150 appearances for United, Mata has been deployed either as an attacking midfielder or on the right wing, with all seven of his league appearances this season being made in wide areas.Armenian Henrikh Mkhitaryan has thrived in the central role during this campaign, scoring once and providing five assists in seven league games, but Mata is relishing his role out wide as it gives him freedom to cut inside and create chances.”Let’s say offensive midfielder,” Mata told United’s website when asked about his preferred role. (www.manutd.com) “But, obviously, I am playing more now on the right wing, when I try to come inside and create space for my team mates.”It’s this kind of freedom that allows me to be in touch with the ball, that’s where I feel comfortable,” said Mata.”I consider myself as this kind of attacking midfielder, trying to find the gaps between the opposition midfielders and defenders and produce what the team needs between the lines,” he added.Mata, who scored a memorable brace at Anfield in 2015, also said that netting a goal was far more rewarding than providing an assist.”The most important and the better feeling in football, for me, is scoring a goal,” Mata added.”Obviously, when you’ve made a great assist…is a great feeling, but obviously the best feeling is to score yourself.”advertisementUnited, who are second in the league after winning six of their opening seven fixtures, drew both games against Liverpool last season.
Houston, Nov 6 (PTI) A motorist is emerging as a hero in the Texas church shooting as he along with another man pursued the heavily armed gunman in a high-speed car chase after the deadly attack, preventing more casualties.The gunman, identified as Devin Patrick Kelly 26, who was sporting a ballistic vest, opened fire on a small-town Texas church during the Sunday service, killing at least 26 people and wounding another 20.Johnnie Langendorff was driving down near the church on his way to his girlfriends house, when the local man who too was armed with a rifle sought his help to pursue Kelly and prevent further mayhem.Reacting to the incident, US President Donald Trump, who is in Japan, said it was fortunate that another person on the scene had a firearm, otherwise “it would have been much worse.”Trump said it was fortunate that another person on the scene had a firearm, otherwise “it would have been much worse.”Langendorff said not much was running through his head when the local man, whom he did not know, explained to him the situation, according to KSAT television news channel.”The gentleman with the rifle came to my truck as the shooter took off, and he briefed me quickly on what had just happened, and said that we had to get him and so thats what I did,” Langendorff said.The chase ensued after the man exchanged gunfire at the church with Kelley, who then fled the scene.”He just hurt so many people, and he just affected so many peoples lives … Why wouldnt you want to take him down?” he said about the attacker.advertisementLangendorff told the channel that they chased the shooter for nearly 18-km and went up to a speed of over 150 kmph before Kelleys car crashed and the police arrived.Langendorff stayed on the phone with dispatch as they drove, giving them updates on their location and direction, letting them know the vehicle was in sight and they were getting closer and closer.Then, near the intersection of Hartfield and Sandy Elm roads, Kelley appeared to lose control of his SUV.”Its like he just gave up. He just kind of went off in the ditch, hit a hay bale from what I could see, and then he just never moved after that,” Langendorff said.”The gentleman who was with me got out, rested his rifle on my hood and kept it aimed at him, telling him to Get out. Get out. There was no movement. There was none of that.”Langendorff said Kelleys brake lights were going on and off.”So he might have been unconscious from the crash or something like that,” he said. “Im not sure.”It took about five to seven minutes for the police to arrive on the scene.According to a news release from Department of Public Safety (DPS) and the Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt, Kelley was found dead inside the vehicle. The cause of death is still under investigation.”It was a horrible tragedy,” Langendorff said, “but I hope the families affected can sleep a little better at night knowing that he was taken care of.”DPS Regional Director Freeman Martin said the mans shooting caused Kelley to drop his weapon.Martin could not immediately confirm if the attacker got hit by the man but said it was safe to say his actions saved lives and prevented more mayhem.
