Goals from the Birmingham City striker Ellen White and Manchester City’s Lucy Bronze and Izzy Christiansen gave England a well-earned win in the last of their home fixtures before the European Championship finals http://www.officialhurricanesproshop.com/Jaccob_Slavin_Jerseyin the Netherlands. Only three goals had been scored in England’s six matches this year but against a physical Austria side whose main aim looked to be damage limitation, Mark Sampson’s team regained their shooting touch. They went into the game with three changes to the starting lineup from the 1-1 draw with Italy on Friday night and it was two of the new players who combined to open the scoring after five minutes. Christiansen crossed from the left and White, who had missed the Friday game because of a slight injury, sent a glancing header just inside the far post. The sharp opening by England promised a more productive evening than on Friday, when 28 shots Jake Bean Youth Jersey were fired at the Italy goal with such a meagre return. But against some overly robust Austrian defending – and at times 10 players behind the ball – it was difficult to build any real momentum. Toni Duggan went close just after the half-hour, when the striker’s header from a Jordan Nobbs cross was pushed past the post by Manuela Zinsberger in goal. Towards half-time Austria broke forward on a couple of occasions but threatened only once, the left‑back Verena Aschauer sending in a 20-yard effort but straight at the goalkeeper, Siobhan Chamberlain. England should have Marian Gaborik Womens Jersey doubled their lead four minutes after the interval but Duggan, sent clear by the midfielder Jade Moore, put her 10-yard shot too close to Zinsberger who pushed the ball wide. From the resultant corner Christiansen had two shots in quick succession blocked on the line by the goalkeeper, then Nobbs skied an angled shot over the bar. The game was now following a similar pattern to the match on Friday but a second goal finally arrived in the 67th minute: Christiansen’s 15-yard lob bounced back off the bar but Bronze dashed in to force the ball over the line. After White had forced a fine diving save from Zinsberger, Christiansen wrapped up victory four minutes from time. The captain, Steph Houghton, headed http://www.officialkingsteamstore.com/Marty_Mcsorley_Jersey on a Nobbs corner for the midfielder to touch a low header beyond the keeper’s reach

Tony Adams will take charge of Granada’s final seven matches of the La Liga season after the former Arsenal and England captain was named on Monday as the successor to Lucas Alcaraz at the club. Adams, 50, was appointed as the Spanish club’s sporting director by the Chinese Kelvin Benjamin Womens Jersey owner, Jiang Lizhang, last week but will now be in charge of the first team in an attempt to avoid relegation after defeat on Sunday against Valencia left them seven points from safety. Adams, whose last managerial post was in charge of the Azerbaijani club Gabala FC in 2011, is a confidant of Lizhang and also acts as vice-president of his DDMC Football Club Management Company. Alisher Usmanov: Wenger should decide his Arsenal successor Read more “After assessing the situation the team is in, Granada CF has decided to part company with Lucas Alcaraz and his coaching staff,” read a club statement. “In his place, the club has total confidence in Tony Adams, vice-president http://www.footballpanthershop.com/Kevin_Norwood_Jersey_Cheap of DDMC, as head coach of Granada CF until the end of the season.” Adams, who retired in August 2002 having led Arsenal to four titles and three FA Cups, began his managerial career at Wycombe Wanderers in 2003 and took over at Portsmouth in 2008. That ended in February 2009 having picked up only 10 points from his 16 games after replacing Harry Redknapp. His spell in Azerbaijan lasted more than a year and he left after guiding them to seventh place in the league, although he returned a year later to become director of football. 'I'm a much better manager than a player' Donald McRae Read more That experience brought him to the attention of Lizhang, who is also a part-owner in NBA side Minnesota Timberwolves and the biggest stakeholder in Belgian side OH Leuven. Last August, the journalist-turned sports marketer purchased Granada for £32m from Watford’s owner, the Pozzo family, and http://www.officialoriolestore.com/Mark_Trumbo_Jersey appointed Adams as sporting director at the Chinese Super League side Chongqing Dangdai Lifan. Adams moved to Spain at the end of 2016 and was tasked with establishing a new infrastructure for the club before being named as sporting director to replace Javier Torralbo. “I believe that with patience, the structure we are setting in place will be able to take the club where we want it to be once more,” Adams said last week. “We want to be a mid-table team in La Liga with players who belong to Granada CF, with a world‑class academy developing local and Spanish players, with world‑class training facilities. “If there’s a Chinese player playing with the first team eventually, then that would be the icing on the cake for the president, but he’s certainly not going to insist on that. All these things will take time, as sometimes you need to take one step back and clear up all the problems, before you can take two steps forward.” First up for Matt Wieters Authentic Jersey Adams will be the home match against Celta Vigo on Sunday, although with trips to Sevilla and Real Sociedad and a visit from Real Madrid to come, he will have to act quickly if Granada are to avoid slipping back down after five seasons in the top flight

Floyd Ayite scored early on and Scott Malone and Stefan Johansen made sure before Christophe Berra’s consolation. Huddersfield’s defeat at Nottingham Forest, however, means there was no harm done to Newcastle’s hold on one of the two automatic promotion places, though Rafa Benítez’s side missed the chance to regain top spot. Eric Lichaj’s tap in put Forest ahead at the City Ground and Jamie Ward raced away late on to seal a 2-0 win. Norwich City put seven past Reading to dent Royals’ promotion hopes Read more Elsewhere in the top six, Leeds put their mini-wobble behind them and severely dented Preston’s play-off hopes in the process with a 3-0 win, and Reading had an alarming stumble in their play-off chase as Norwich put seven goals past their visitors at Carrow Road, having led 6-1 at half-time. Gary Rowett enjoyed http://www.officialmetsproshop.com/Juan_Lagares_Jersey a winning return to Birmingham with new side Derby. Rowett was surprisingly sacked last year but went ahead at St Andrew’s when Tomas Kuszczak put into his own goal. Birmingham enjoyed Che Adams’ leveller but Tom Ince ensured a sweet return for Rowett in the 90th minute. • Jonathan Kodjia scored again for Aston Villa but they were pegged back by Lloyd Dyer as they drew 1-1 at Burton, while Sean Morrison and Peter Whittingham earned Cardiff a 2-1 win over Brentford. At the bottom of the table, Bristol City boosted their survival hopes with a crushing 3-1 win of in-form Wolves. Jamie Paterson opened the scoring and Tammy Abraham added two more, the first from the spot. Blackburn occupy the final spot in the bottom three and trail City by four points. They lost 2-0 at home to Barnsley, Marc Roberts and Marley Watkins on target inside 10 minutes. Rotherham are already relegated and Wigan could soon join them, but the Latics gave themselves a real lifeline when the two met with a 3-2 victory at the DW Stadium. Danny Ward and Anthony Forde twice put Rotherham ahead but Gabriel Obertan and Alex Gilbey replied before Nick Powell won it in the seventh minute of added time. League One Sheffield United sealed their return to the Championship after a 2-1 win over Northampton at Sixfields. Marc Richards put the home side ahead in first-half stoppage time but Leon Clarke levelled after 61 minutes and John Fleck hit a winner to see Chris Wilder’s men return to the second tier.

Neymar is at risk of missing out on the clásico at the Bernabéu after sarcastically applauding the fourth official following his red card in Barcelona’s defeat at Málaga. The Brazilian playmaker was sent off after his second booking in Saturday night’s defeat, a dismissal that is usually punished by only a one-game Isaiah Thomas Youth Jersey suspension. However, the referee, Jesús Gil Manzano, included Neymar’s reaction in his post-match report. This could result in up to three matches being added to Neymar’s suspension, and will worry Barça given that in February, Luis Suárez was given a two-game ban after the same referee wrote in his report after a Copa del Rey game against Atlético Madrid that the Uruguayan delayed his exit down the tunnel after being sent off. Real meet Barcelona on 23 April. Neymar’s sending-off compounded a dismal evening for Barcelona, who failed to overtake the La Liga leaders, Real Madrid and take advantage of their rivals http://www.officialcelticsproshop.com/Jae_Crowder_Jersey dropping points earlier in the day. Antoine Griezmann had scored a late equaliser as Atlético Madrid secured a 1-1 draw away at their city rivals, which gave Barcelona the chance to leapfrog them at the top of the table. The Málaga manager, José Miguel González, had not read the script and his side chalked up a second successive victory to move closer to safety. Atlético Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann leaves it late to slow Real title charge Read more Sandro scored on the break against his former club after half an hour and the substitute Jony Rodríguez added a late second after Neymar had picked up a needless second yellow card. Real Madrid remain three points clear of second-placed Barcelona with a game in hand, while Málaga are now 14th. Barcelona had made four changes, André Gomes and Jordi Alba among those drafted in. Gerard Piqué and Ivan Rakitic were suspended and Andrés Iniesta was named on the bench. Málaga were content to sit deep and allow the visitors plenty of possession but Barcelona opened the hosts up after 16 minutes, when Alba sent Luis Suárez racing clear into the penalty area but Carlos Kameni was out quickly from his goal to make a vital block. The Málaga goalkeeper http://www.rangersteamonline.com/Jaromir_Jagr_Jersey had to be alert shortly afterwards to smother a cross from the Uruguayan as Neymar looked to pounce, before Lionel Messi curled a free-kick over. At the other end, the Barca keeper, Marc-André ter Stegen, failed to deal with a backpass and the ball dropped to José Recio but the midfielder’s long-range shot at an empty net failed to hit the target. Málaga swept into the lead in the 32nd minute when the defender Juan Carlos knocked a long ball forwards to Sandro, who ran from his own half to spring a high Barcelona offside trap, Jérémy Mathieu playing him on. The striker, who started his career at the Camp Nou, held his nerve as he sprinted into the penalty area before slamming the ball past Ter Stegen at his near post. The Barcelona manager, Luis Enrique, had seen enough and made changes for the start of the second half, Iniesta and Sergi Roberto sent on to replace Mathieu and Denis Suárez. Bayern Munich outclass Borussia Dortmund in thumping win Read more Yet it was Málaga who should have further extended their lead as the hour mark approached. The hosts broke down the left through Sandro, who cut the ball back across the face of goal to Juanpi, but the midfielder could only tap a tame effort straight into the arms of Ter Stegen. Barcelona went close to an equaliser when Neymar turned to drill the ball against the outside of a post from a tight angle. The Brazilian then sent a header over from Suárez’s cross but then paid the price for a rush of blood, collecting an unnecessary second caution for barging into Diego Llorente with 25 minutes still to play. Advertisement Málaga looked as though they had made their extra man count when the substitute Adalberto Jeff Beukeboom Womens Jersey knocked the ball in with a neat finish, but the Watford loanee’s celebrations were quickly curtailed by an offside flag. It looked a marginal call. Juan Carlos was tripped by Javier Mascherano, with contact appearing to have taken place right on the 18-yard line, but Sandro fired the free-kick into the wall. There was a similar incident at the other end when Sergi Roberto looked to have been caught by Luis Hernández just inside the box. The referee opted to give a free-kick just outside, which Messi failed to get around the defenders. With the clock ticking down, Barcelona continued to pour forward but were caught on the counter. The substitute Charles Dias sent Pablo Fornals away down the right and he held the ball up before cutting it back to Jony to slam into the net

Castleford produced another stirring display of their title credentials as they enhanced their position at the top of Super League with victory over Wigan. It has been Brenton Bersin Womens Jersey all too easy to fawn over the attacking prowess of Daryl Powell’s side in these opening weeks of the season but here it was their defensive mettle which laid the platform for another victory, their seventh in eight games. “It’s the kind of win not associated with Castleford sides in the past,” Powell said. “It’s our best win of the season because of the nature of it.” This was billed as a clash of the early title favourites several weeks ago but a dip in Wigan’s form – coupled with injuries to almost a dozen players – ensured http://www.panthersfootballprostore.com/cam-newton-jersey-for-sale-c-7.html Castleford went into the match as heavy favourites and they did not disappoint. “It wasn’t good enough,” said Shaun Wane, whose Wigan side are now without a win in four matches. “We didn’t deserve it; we didn’t deserve to get close to them. They’ve hardly any injuries and they’re flying.” The Tigers did not resemble league leaders early on, with plenty of handling errors but they withstood the pressure Wigan placed on their line with some fine defensive work. And that bore fruit as half time approached, as the Tigers raced into a 14-0 lead. They went ahead Jedd Gyorko Womens Jersey when the half-back, Ben Roberts, produced a deft pass to send Jake Webster over before Jesse Sene-Lefao’s quick offload sent Zak Hardaker downfield, with the full-back providing the final pass for Luke Gale to cross. Gale later converted a penalty to open up a commanding lead. Wigan, to their credit, rallied and gave themselves hope when the full-back Morgan Escaré darted over from close range to narrow the gap to eight at the break. However, Sene-Lefao once again turned the momentum of the contest after half-time with a superb individual try – although the defending from Wigan in the buildup was suspect. Advertisement The Warriors would continue to fight – despite looking out of sorts in attack –but the Tigers’ defensive efforts proved far too strong. Many will highlight the points Castleford seemingly score at will on occasions as the greatest indicator of their strength this season but in reality it is defensive efforts such as this which will see them go far in 2017.

he saying goes that as long as the waterfall flows in the foyer of Canterbury League Club, the Bulldogs will remain strong. While consenting adults plonk ever more gold into the poker machines, the footy club can afford Des Hasler as coach, James Graham as captain and Josh Reynolds http://www.officialathleticshop.com/authentic-25-mark-mcgwire-jersey.html as chief agitator. And if you’ve twigged early to the slant of this piece, a free spin on The Queen of the Nile for you. Yes, the pokies, the font of revenue which flows from gamblers and into licensed clubs and onwards into your footy team, trickling back to “the community” in the form of cheap chicken parmigiana, footy socks for the kids, and Bob the mini-bus driver who’ll shuttle home punters once they’ve bled their last. Kieran Foran scores on NRL return as Warriors down Titans Read more The money is scarcely believable. Canterbury League Club took $74.9m from gamblers in 2015; Parramatta Leagues Club took $49.9m; Panthers World of Entertainment – run by Panthers Group which also owns pokie palaces in Bathurst, Glenbrook, North Richmond, Port Macquarie and Wallacia – took $65.7m. The Panthers footy club has Phil Gould looking after operations, a crack squad of contenders, and a $20m gymnasium and “centre of excellence”. The grandstand at Belmore Oval looks old, but underneath it’s like sports science Nasa. Parramatta’s team was full of so much loot it had problems complying with NRL laws on spending. Penrith even nearly landed Reggie Jackson Womens Jersey Johnathan Thurston. And the entreaty wasn’t made with a hessian sack full of pineapples. All NRL clubs (and AFL clubs bar North Melbourne and Adelaide) are funded by poker machines. Canberra Raiders have Mounties Group, Cronulla Sharks have Sharkies Leagues. St George-Illawarra Dragons’ leagues club is known as the Taj Mahal. Wests Tigers would cease to exist without money from licensed clubs full of pokies. South Sydney Rabbitohs stopped taking money from the pokies in Souths Leagues, instead taking it from those in Jamie Packer’s Star City casino. NRL clubs also take money from their governing body’s broadcasting deal. Otherwise they make their coin where they can. Merchandise, sponsorship, corporate suites, match day tickets. And pokie money is easy money. And it’s stupid-large. The Bulldogs lost $5.4m in 2016. Without the TV money and the pokies they’d be dead as fried chicken. Advertisement Australia has 20% of all the world’s poker machines, and 0.5% of the world’s population. Australians spend a mind-boggling $23bn on gambling each year. Sixty cents of every gambling dollar goes into a poker machine. A lazy $7.6bn is lost by “problem gamblers” in Australia each year. Nearly eight billion dollars. The Australian government’s own “Problem Gambling” website (since replaced with a Department of Social Services site that bemoans gambling revenue lost to online sites based overseas) once said, “500,000 Australians are at risk of becoming, or are, problem gamblers; the social cost of problem gambling in Australia is estimated at $4.7bn a year; one in six people who play the pokies regularly has a serious addiction; the actions of one problem gambler negatively impacts the lives of between five and 10 others; and up to five million Australians could be affected by problem gambling each year.” Guardian Australia sport newsletter: subscribe by email Read more In an Inside Sport magazine story from 2016 Clubs Australia CEO Anthony Ball disputed Jesper Fast Womens Jersey the figures. “The statistics quoted are outdated and incorrect,” he said. “The Institute of Public Affairs assessed these claims and found that the latest data shows a lower figure, about 75,300 problem gamblers.” Ball said that between 75% and 80% of problem gamblers “use electronic gaming machines [poker machines], which reduces the numbers of EGM problem gamblers to between 57,000 and 60,000 people”. He added: “Based on total expenditure on EGMs in Australia, the implied share of spending by problem gamblers would in fact appear to be between 10 and 20%, and not the 41% estimated by the productivity commission.” Anyway, adults can do what they like with their disposable income, can’t they? We’re not a nanny state just yet, are we? We are not. But imagine if heroin or crystal meth or the tendrils of terrorism caused as many social ills – and cost as much – as the poker machine. Politicians would have actual fist-fights, scrapping each other to be the first to declare war on this evil scourge. There would be royal commissions and slogans (“Stop The Machines!”) and a host of ever tougher legislation to “crackdown” on the invidious evil. Now, most of those in the club industry and your footy club and your state government do care about people in their community. No-one wants families breaking up and children without shoes, and broke addicts roaming the streets. But my, all that money! Licensed clubs and through them footy clubs (and state governments) are as good as addicted to the rivers of gold pouring from the pokies’ teat. And clubs do try to alleviate the pain their products cause. They say they’re “part of of the solution”. They don’t like the consequences. Who would like them? But they do cop them. They have their platitudes, their nod to legislation. They have “exclusion” and “harm minimisation”. They put ATMs in a different part of the club. They have Salvation Army chaplains and financial counsellors. NRL pay talks going well, says RLPA president Cameron Smith Read more They made former Parramatta Eels captain Nathan Hindmarsh – who once lost $200,000 playing poker machines – an “ambassador” to “help educate and raise awareness of responsible gambling”. So there is all that. And yet still the money rolls in. Because that’s really the most important thing. Do whatever you’ve got to do to appease the lefties and churchies and whoever. Jump through all those hoops. But whatever happens, that spigot must remain open. The money must continue to flow. And these things do benefit the community. Ronald McDonald has a house for sick kids. The Panthers’ annual report has a photo of Phil Gould handing over an over-sized cheque for $5,000 to local fire fighters. Hawthorn has a “philanthropic donation” of $1m over five years to their http://www.rangersteamonline.com/Jimmy_Vesey_Jersey Indigenous program the Epic Good Foundation. If a kid wants to play rugby league in Sydney’s Souths Juniors competition, they don’t pay for registration, jerseys, shorts and socks. All “free”. Insurance? We’ve got you covered, kid. Taxes on gambling – like those paid by alcohol and nicotine – pay for hospitals, schools and roads of the 21st century. Which is all tremendous. But, again, at what cost? How many families have been bankrupted because dad’s blown the rent in Mega Moolah? How many suicides can be directly attributed to addiction to poker machines? How much depression, how many job losses, how much crime? How many kids have gone without breakfast so your footy club can own the crack five-eighth or flashy gym? And if mums and dads, grandmas and grandpas hadn’t tipped so much of their income into the poker machines, couldn’t they have just bought the kids the blessed bloody socks? Should your footy club – aspirational and inspirational champion of the community and friend to the battler – be funded by so much misery? Is there really not another way
