London: England’s plan to celebrate their 1,000th international by qualifying for Euro 2020 in serene style against Montenegro at Wembley on Thursday has been ripped up by Gareth Southgate’s decision to drop Raheem Sterling. The Manchester City winger was involved in a physical confrontation with Liverpool defender Joe Gomez at England’s training base on Monday as emotions spilled over from the highly-anticipated Premier League clash between the two clubs on Sunday. Sterling has been the star of a qualifying campaign dominated by off-field issues where the Three Lions have largely let their football do the talking on it. Bar a shock defeat to the Czech Republic last month, the World Cup semi-finalists have shown why they will be among the favourites to win a first major tournament in 54 years next summer.Sterling has scored eight of his side’s 26 goals in six games as he has blossomed into one of the world’s best players for club and country since failing to find his best form at the World Cup 18 months ago. He has also been a leading figure as England have stood up to the racist abuse suffered by a number of players in Montenegro and Bulgaria. One of Southgate’s strengths since taking charge three years ago has been to foster a unity in the camp, far removed from the club-aligned cliques that hampered the chances of talented England sides of the past.That now faces its biggest test as the bubbling rivalry between Liverpool and City threatens to spill over. Southgate’s first instinct was reportedly to send Sterling home, but the intervention of senior players, principally Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, helped ease the feud and the 24-year-old has remained with the squad to train.”I always have to find the right solution for the group and that’s a very difficult line,” said Southgate on Tuesday. “We have a very good understanding of the way that we have worked over the last couple of years, which has brought us a lot of togetherness that is still there. We are a united group. Now we have to turn our focus onto the football. We have a hugely important qualifier to reach a European Championship.” Sterling has since apologised to Gomez and the rest of the squad. “I am man enough to admit when emotions got the better of me,” he said in an Instagram post. “Me and Joe Gomez are good, we both understand it was a five to 10-second thing… it’s done, we move forward and not make this bigger than it is.”Sterling could even return to action as soon as Sunday when Southgate’s men travel to Kosovo. England will hope there is nothing riding on that match for them as a point against the side ranked 61st in the world on Thursday will be enough to guarantee qualification. Even in Sterling’s absence, Southgate is blessed with an array of attacking talent including Harry Kane, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford that should continue England’s free-scoring form.Also Read | Raheem Sterling Sparkles As Manchester City See Off Aston VillaBut Southgate’s action has been criticised by some for bringing a private incident into the public eye and putting Sterling under more scrutiny as a result. “Why this couldn’t be handled internally?” said former England defender Rio Ferdinand. “Now Raheem is left to defend himself from all of the haters that had had their keyboards turned off due to him becoming a very worthy ambassador for the English game.” If England’s long wait to win a major tournament is to come to an end, Southgate needs to continue getting the best out of Sterling. The question remains what lasting impact the developments of the last two days will have on their relationship going forward.last_img read more

The others are Daniele Rugani of Juventus plus five Sampdoria players: Manolo Gabbiadini, Omar Colley, Albin Ekdal, Antonino La Gumina and Morten Thorsby.Serie A is suspended until at least April 3 as part of a nationwide lockdown in Italy intended to contain the virus. Most people quickly recover from the global virus after experiencing only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.___More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6last_img read more

first_img Published on April 1, 2019 at 9:27 am Contact Nick: nialvare@syr.edu | @nick_a_alvarez No. 8 Syracuse (5-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast) and No. 19 Hobart (8-1, 2-0 Northeast) square off at Boswell Field at David J. Urick Stadium at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. SU dropped its first road game of the season — the last team in the country to travel — at No. 12 Notre Dame on Saturday, 13-10. The Orange fell into an early 11-2 hole, and despite a 7-0 run in the second half, they slipped under-.500 in conference play. Hobart has only one loss this season to then-No. 4 Cornell. The Statesmen dominated St. Bonaventure, 18-8, in their last game on March 27.Here’s how the teams matchup when they play for the Kraus-Simmons Trophy.Last time they played: Syracuse beat Hobart last year, 11-4, in the Carrier Dome to win the Kraus-Simmons Trophy for the 30th time. SU’s man-up unit scored on all three tries and paired it with a stout man-down defense. Stephen Rehfuss scored twice in the fourth quarter and finished with a hat trick and two assists. Defender Nick Mellen held his assignment — Chris Aslanian — scoreless.The Hobart report: The Statesmen are led by their second-ranked offense (16.11 goals per game). Aslanian, last year’s leading-scorer, returns. Last year, the attack scored 23 goals and dished 24 assists in 14 starts. He’s performed at a high level with better passing numbers, with 13 scores and 26 assists in nine games. The highlight of the Statemen’s offense, though, is Eric Holden. After 47 points in 2018, he’s totaled a team-leading 28 goals and has taken 92 of Hobart’s 500 shots. Hobart also has four other double-digit goal scorers, with Jason Knox totaling 25 goals. Goalie Sam Lucchesi returns as well with a .573-save percentage so far. Last year’s faceoff-specialist — Matthew Pedicine — is back taking the majority of tries at the X. He won 65.9% of his attempts last year and he’s improved to win at the X at a 67.2% clip. Pedicine has also improved with ground balls, snagging 110 this season.Hobart kicked off 2019 with back-to-back 20-goal performances before losing to Cornell 19-16. The Statesmen offense kept scoring afterward, though. They’ve tallied double-digit scores in each of their games this season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHow Syracuse beats Hobart: The biggest issue for SU in its latest-loss to the Fighting Irish was its initial defensive blunders. Brendan Gleason and Bryan Costabile each compiled first-half hat tricks and were the latest top-threats to exploit the Orange’s veteran backline. Syracuse head coach John Desko has repeatedly mentioned his team’s need to start strong. But time and again, it hasn’t. If the defense can perform at the level its capable of — it held UND scoreless for 20-plus minutes — then SU’s offense should have a chance to execute another scoring-run. An improving Rehfuss and an emerging Brendan Curry can secure the Kraus-Simmons for the Orange.Stat to know: 6 — Hobart’s average scoring-margin, good for second-best in the nation. The Statesmen have paired a dynamic offense with a defense that’s allowed less than 10 scores a contest. Hobart’s backline is comprised of mostly veterans and the entire unit has caused 65 turnovers.Player to watch: Jason Knox — 6-foot-4 freshman attackKnox has quickly become a top-threat in Hobart’s elite offense. In his debut, he recorded his first score. And on Feb. 16 against Siena, he reached a season-high with nine goals on 11 shots. And he’s scored at least two goals in his last four games. Knox’s ability to stretch a defense can further test Syracuse. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

In its mandate, the programme addresses a number of changes implemented by six operators following previous advice from the CMA.  Ladbrokes, William Hill, PT Entertainment, BGO, Jumpman Gaming and Progress Play have all committed “not to continue or repeat certain practices which the CMA considered were unfair. But the impact of this work has been felt across the entire sector.”The letter detailed: “Our joint work provided a sharp focus on aspects of online gambling and exposed significant shortcomings within the sector that had undermined consumer trust and confidence. “However, for you to comply fully with your consumer law and licensing responsibilities, you must go further than simply complying with the published undertakings. “You need to audit all your terms and conditions, examine your business systems and practices, embed compliance and, importantly, continually review these to ensure that you maintain high standards of consumer protection in the future. “We have seen indications of the wider sector working to make changes to the way in which promotions are constructed and promoted to consumers.”The CMA and UKGC have stressed that even though significant progress has been made by operators to ensure that compliance measures are adhered to, more still needs to be done in order to maintain consumer trust.“Making changes to promotions and withdrawal practices is an important start, but it is only one aspect of achieving compliance. More needs to be done by the sector to win back consumer trust.
