Heaslip sad to pass Wallace

first_img Number eight Heaslip will captain Ireland in their opening World Cup warm-up clash against Wales at the Millennium Stadium. The Leinster loose-forward will win his 73rd cap, moving past his former Test team-mate Wallace’s mark, as head coach Joe Schmidt seeks a strong start to four World Cup preparation fixtures. Heaslip hailed former Munster flanker Wallace as one of his finest back-row opponents and team-mates. “In a weird way I was a little bit gutted to be honest,” said Heaslip of learning he would move past Wallace’s record. “I was a little bit sad, because I hold Wally with particularly high regard, as a player and as a bloke, but as a back-row guy as well. “I was a bit sad to be honest, that I passed one of my idols, and especially in the last World Cup he was one of the guys that I unfortunately saw him play his last international. Yeah, I was pretty sad to be honest. “It’s cool obviously, on one side, but I think Wally was probably one of the best, if not the best, back-row player I’ve ever played with or against, and probably the best who played for Ireland.” Wallace won 72 Ireland caps between 2001 and 2011, and featured on the 2001 and 2009 British and Irish Lions tours. Heaslip branded Wallace all but the complete back-row forward ahead of facing Wales on Saturday. “He was just awesome, absolutely – ball carrying, defence, work-rate, knowledge, the full package really,” said Heaslip. “Bar his line-out ability. Maybe I can take him on that! But otherwise it was a bit bitter sweet hearing that, to be honest.” Jamie Heaslip admits he will be “gutted” to eclipse David Wallace’s record as Ireland’s most-capped back-row forward in Cardiff on Saturday. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

It won’t be easy at all, we’ll need to play well and find our best form,” said Real spokesman and former striker Emilio Butragueno.“We’ve played a lot of times against Borussia Dortmund recently and know how good they are.

We will be fighting against a well known rival in Juventus and the games against them will condition our chances in the group,” said Barca general manager Pep Segura.Juventus Director General Beppe Marotta said Barca were a weaker side following the record-breaking sale of Neymar.“Missing a player like Neymar weighs heavily.

As everybody knows, Celtic get incredible support from their fans. And Anderlecht can not be underestimated as Belgian champions.”PSG coach Unai Emery, looking to mastermind a much deeper run after last year’s spectacular collapse against Barca, expects his side to join Bayern in the last 16.“Bayern Munich are a very strong side. We will be the two favourites. After there are two teams who are going to want to create a surprise,” said Emery.Chelsea, one of a record five English teams to qualify for the group phase, will meet Atletico Madrid in Group C as well as Roma and Qarabag, the first side from Azerbaijan to reach this stage of the competition.Jose Mourinho will return to Portugal with Manchester United after his team was placed in Group A with Benfica, CSKA Moscow and Basle.Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are in Group F alongside Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk, Napoli and Feyenoord while Liverpool will play Spartak Moscow, Sevilla and Maribor in Group E.“There are groups with Barcelona, Bayern, Juventus and Real Madrid, and not to get them is of course more good than bad,” said Klopp.French champions Monaco, who reached last season’s semifinals, face Porto, Besiktas and debutants RB Leipzig in Group G.The opening round of matches will be played September 12-13.GROUP ABenficaMan UnitedFC BaselCSKA MoscowGROUP BBayern MunichPSGAnderlechtCelticGROUP CChelseaAtletico MadridAS RomaQarabagGROUP DJuventusBarcelonaOlympiakosSporting LisbonGROUP ESpartak MoscowSevillaLiverpoolMariborGROUP FShakhtar DonetskMan CityNapoliFeyenoordGROUP GMonacoPortoBesiktasRB LeipzigGROUP HReal MadridDortmundTottenhamApoel NicosiaShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram CHAMPIONS LEAGUECup holders Real Madrid will face Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur in the UEFA Champions League group stage while five-time winners Barcelona were thursday drawn with last season’s runners-up Juventus.Zinedine Zidane’s side is chasing a third successive European title and fourth in five seasons after demolishing Italian champions Juventus 4-1 in Cardiff in June.last_img read more

Inter makes Lautaro more difficult: he wants € 90m in cash

first_imgeleven The stoppage due to the coronavirus pandemic continues and in the meantime, the teams continue to plan the touches to the next year’s staff. At Barcelona, ​​the signing of Lautaro Martínez has long been a priority, whose termination clause will soon drop to 111 million euros. However, Barcelona will not have much liquidity after the coronavirus crisis and presented the Italian club with a list of footballers that could make the operation cheaper. A list that has been changing since then. 10 Of those offered, the one that convinces the most is Nelson Semedo, since it is urgent to reinforce both sides. On his agenda is also Junior Firpo, although it would be the third on the list, since ahead would have the Italian-Brazilian of the Chelsea, Emerson Palmieri.Looking for a substitute for Lautarocenter_img But as published La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter mainly wants money, and although it considers some feasible footballers in case the deal goes ahead, it will ask for at least 90 million euros to let the Argentine out, that is, that Barça would have to pay 90 million euros in addition to a footballer, provided that the chosen one is to the liking of Antonio Conte. At the same time, Inter shuffles a host of names as possible replacements for the player, among which would be the German of the RB Leipzig, Timo Werner, whose termination clause will be 65 million euros. The striker, on the other hand, has his own plans, and both Inter and Barcelona or Bayern Munich would be alternatives to what he really wants: to play for Liverpool.last_img read more

Penguins storm past the exhausted Ducks

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityPetr Sykora scored twice and had an assist in his Pittsburgh home debut and the Penguins twice scored goals only seconds apart in a 5-4 victory over road-weary Stanley Cup champion Ducks on Saturday night. In an unusual twist created by the Ducks’ long trip to London to split two games with the Kings last weekend, the Penguins’ first home game was the Ducks’ fifth – and third in four nights – all of them home openers for the opposing team. The Ducks lost in a shootout Wednesday at Detroit before looking visibly fatigued in a 4-0 loss Friday at Columbus. Asked what the Ducks would do on the long flight home, defenseman Chris Pronger said, “Sleep. We’re too tired to get angry.” The Ducks played much better against Pittsburgh but, with a 1-3-1 record, are off to a bad start a year after they began 12-0-4 and 20-2-6 before eventually winning the Stanley Cup. They finally play their home opener Wednesday against Boston. They’re playing short-handed, too, without injured goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere and defenseman Mathieu Schneider and without two stars from the Cup team, defenseman Scott Niedermayer and forward Teemu Selanne. Each is weighing retirement. Jonas Hiller, who started, is the Ducks’ No. 3 goalie, behind Giguere and Ilja Bryzgalov. “We’ll be better when we get our group together,” Coach Randy Carlyle said. Sykora, a longtime Penguins antagonist while with New Jersey, put Pittsburgh up, 4-3, by putting in a rebound of Georges Laraque’s shot in front at 13:32 of the third. After the ensuing faceoff, Sidney Crosby – getting his first point in two games – beat defenseman Chris Pronger to the puck and found Ryan Malone in the slot for Pittsburgh’s second goal in 19 seconds. “I couldn’t ask for a better start at home,” said Sykora, who signed with the youthful Penguins to give them an experienced, Cup-winning scoring threat. “Georges made a great play, he crashed the net and really opened it up for me.” The Penguins, the NHL’s third highest-scoring team last season, scored only 20 seconds apart in the second period as Colby Armstrong and Evgeni Malkin each beat Hiller to make it 3-2. Malkin had a goal and an assist and Gary Roberts had two assists. “Everyone was motivated to play these guys,” Crosby said as the Penguins followed up a season-opening, 4-1 loss at Carolina on Friday. “They’re the champions, and we were all up for this game, playing Anaheim and it’s the home opener.” The Ducks, obviously not wanting to go home after such a long trip with so little to show for it, controlled much of the play early and took a 2-1 lead about 1 minutes into the second period on Ryan Getzlaf’s shot from the slot.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
