Silva: Fouling Neymar is normalSilva: Fouling Neymar is normal

first_imgNeymar, who only returned from a fractured metatarsal last month, looked close to his best on Monday when Brazil beat Mexico 2-0 to reach the quarter-finals in Russia.Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar was often at the centre of things, as he scored and played a key role in Roberto Firmino getting the second.But he also received criticism for what Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio described as “acting” when Miguel Layun appeared to step on his ankle.However, Silva does not believe rough treatment is anything new for Neymar.Adversário definido! A #SeleçãoBrasileira vai enfrentar a Bélgica nas quartas de final da Copa do Mundo.

But it was a tough game.”In the last eight Brazil will face Belgium, who came from two goals down to sensationally beat Japan 3-2 with a dramatic stoppage-time winner from Nacer Chadli.Silva recognises the talent at Roberto Martinez’s disposal, but is adamant Brazil are the favourites regardless of the opposition.”Belgium are very strong physically and technically,” the centre-back said. “Belgium deserve to play in the last 16.”I think that in all competitions Brazil is the favourite, but we know that’s not enough. We have to work hard and give our best in every game if we want to win the title.”We will continue to work and rest well because Friday’s game will be even more difficult.” Photo Getty Images.

Hamilton on pole for Hungarian Grand PrixHamilton on pole for Hungarian Grand Prix

first_imgHe chose to go for his final flying lap in the dying seconds of the session and grabbed pole with a lap that produced his team’s fourth lockout of the season.Six days after his epic drive from 14th on the grid to win the rain-hit German Grand Prix last Sunday, he claimed his sixth pole in Hungary, his fifth this year and the 77th of his career.“Are we good?” Hamilton asked his team over the radio. “We’re good,” came the reply.“It’s great for the team to have a one-two,” added Hamilton. “Jeez. We couldn’t have expected this. The heavens opened and it was fair game…”Hamilton was nearly three-tenths quicker than Bottas who was second ahead of fellow-Finn Kimi Raikkonen and his Ferrari team-mate Vettel, Carlos Sainz of Renault and Pierre Gasly of Toro Rosso.“When it was drier it was a bit like doing ballet and tip-toeing, trying to find a line,” added Hamilton.“It was give and take all the way around. We’ve got a great position so we’re going to do our best to keep the red guys behind us…”Bottas said: “I crossed the line on pole and then Lewis had a better lap… He was quicker, but a one-two for the team – it could have been worse! We are free to fight so I’m looking forward to it.”– Thunder crackled –Lewis Hamilton in practice at the Hungarian Grand PrixRaikkonen reflected: “The weather was the most important thing today and the car was driveable and enjoyable. I was a bit unlucky with the tyres…”Max Verstappen was seventh for Red Bull ahead of New Zealander Brendon Hartley, who made the top ten for the first time in his Toro Rosso, Kevin Magnussen and his Haas team-mate Romain Grosjean.Ferrari had been clearly fastest in dry conditions, but after a sweltering morning with a track temperature touching 58 degrees Celsius, qualifying began in dramatically different conditions.This created tricky conditions, similar to those during the race in Germany a week earlier, and the use of ‘intermediate’ tyres as thunder crackled and black clouds swirled.Ferrari and Mercedes were the last to switch to the ultra-soft slicks, leaving their drivers in danger of failing to clock a lap time before more rain fell.As Vettel led at the top, McLaren’s Stoffel Vandoorne, Charles Leclerc of Sauber, Esteban Ocon and his Force India team-mate Esteban Ocon, and Williams’ Russian rookie Sergey Sirotkin were eliminated.When Q2 began, Vettel went out on intermediates while the rest remained on slicks. Within seconds, it was clear that his decision was a wise one as rain swept in and the pack returned to change tyres.This all resulted in Fernando Alonso, Ricciardo, Nico Hulkenberg, Marcus Ericsson and Stroll missing the cut to the top-ten shootout which began with everyone on ‘full wet’ tyres.In succession, Verstappen, Bottas and then Hamilton topped the times on their first runs with Vettel down in sixth, as a patch of blue sky appeared over the Turn 14 grandstand.With five minutes remaining, Hamilton led Bottas before Raikkonen went top by four-tenths ahead of the two Mercedes men.On new full wets, Vettel was unable to find much extra pace as, with two minutes remaining, Hamilton and Raikkonen rejoined on new rubber for their final – and dramatic — flying laps.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Lewis Hamilton flashes the sign of victory after taking pole in Hungary© AFP ATTILA KISBENEDEKBUDAPEST, Hungary, July 29 – Lewis Hamilton danced in the rain on his way to a memorable pole Saturday ahead of his team-mate Valtteri Bottas as Mercedes secured a front row lockout for the Hungarian Grand Prix.The championship leading Briton, who is battling with Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel for a fifth drivers’ world title, delivered another master-class in wet-weather driving and perfect timing.last_img read more

Exclusive – Manchester City do not need Chelsea reject, claims MillsExclusive – Manchester City do not need Chelsea reject, claims Mills

first_imgManchester City do not need reported transfer target Kevin De Bruyne and should focus on acquiring a new defender and striker, believes former defender Danny Mills.The Wolfsburg midfielder, who was on the books of Chelsea but failed to break into the first-team, is in exceptional form in Germany having scored three goals and made ten assists in the Bundesliga this season.But ex-City man Mills can’t see where the Belgian star would fit in at the Etihad Stadium and feels their resources would be better used trying to sign players in other positions.“Manchester City have got an abundance of those midfield players,” he told the Weekend Sports Breakfast. “They’re a bit like Arsenal in that respect. They don’t need any more midfielders.“They need a striker and they probably need an experienced centre-half. Apart from that City’s squad is strong.“The trouble is that players at this time of the year who are doing well or are unhappy get linked everywhere.”last_img read more

first_img“A very physical game,” Rosas said as she attempted to catch her breath afterward. “This was a good win for us, because it has been an up-and-down season. We just got a new coach and we’re still getting adjusted to a new program.” Rosas led the Dons with five goals, including two in the opening period that helped El Rancho to a 4-2 lead.

Temple City, which slipped to 5-4, is ranked No. 6. “I thought El Rancho did a really good job,” Temple City coach Adam Roth said. “I thought we were pretty disciplined throughout. We had some breakdowns and they capitalized on them, but I’m proud of my girls.” El Rancho had trailed, 8-7, going into the fourth quarter, but tied the score at 9-9 on a pair of goals by Rosas that offset a single score by Temple City’s Shannon Walsh. Sharon Petragon, who scored four goals, gave the Dons a 10-9 lead when she scored on a catch-and-throw effort from just outside four meters off Rosas’ pass with 3 minutes, 4 seconds left in regulation time. The Rams’ Jazmine Cardenas came right back to tie it, 10-10, with a similar catch-and-throw off an assist by Jennifer Marshall with 2:31 remaining.
