Aribo doubtful for Brazil friendly

first_imgRelatedPosts Joe Aribo vows to bounce back from injury Joe Aribo out of Super Eagles friendlies Global COVID-19 cases surpass 27m – Johns Hopkins Rangers midfielder, Joe Aribo, could miss the club’s next “few games” after suffering a head injury in Wednesday’s League Cup win over Livingston.The Nigeria international required 20 stitches after a challenge by Livingston’s Rickie Lamie.Steven Gerrard confirmed Aribo will miss Saturday’s visit of Aberdeen after being “cut all the way to the bone”.“I will be very surprised if we see Aribo play before the international break,” the Rangers boss said.“It is his first time out of London and he has settled very well. This will be a setback but knowing him he will bounce back, he didn’t even want to come off yesterday which shows his mentality.”As well as Aberdeen, Rangers face Young Boys away in the Europa League on Thursday and then Hamilton at Ibrox before the next international break.He also now looks set to miss out on playing for Nigeria against Brazil in Singapore on 13 October, having recently won his first cap.Aribo was substituted before the break in the 1-0 win at the Tony Macaroni Arena after Lamie’s forearm hit the former Charlton midfielder on the head.After the match Gerrard questioned whether the Livingston defender should have remained on the pitch, and repeated his thoughts on Thursday.“I don’t think the player has gone in to intentionally hurt him but that in my book is serious dangerous play and in any other league it is a red card,” he said.Tags: BrazilJoe AriboRangerslast_img read more

Leinster pick up first PRO12 win of the season against Cardiff Blues

first_img Press Association Patchell’s razor sharp right boot gave the visitors a 6-0 lead inside the opening seven minutes, as he punished an initial scrum infringement from Leinster and then fired over from inside his own half. Isa Nacewa hit a post with his first place-kick, but he was then on target – pushing past the 400-point mark for Leinster in the process – following a determined kick chase from Noel Reid and Dominic Ryan. Ben Te’o carried with increasing intent during a fast-paced first quarter, with the home side’s pressure leading to number eight Conan burrowing over under Manoa Vosawai’s challenge from a couple of metres out. TMO Seamus Flannery confirmed the grounding and Nacewa converted from the right. However, despite dominating possession, Leinster were only one point clear at the break. Their full-back and stand-in captain sent a penalty narrowly wide before Patchell made it three from three, this time from halfway. Vosawai’s departure at the interval saw Ellis Jenkins brought on and Blues skipper Josh Navidi move to number eight and with the Welsh outfit still struggling for continuity, a central penalty from Nacewa made it 13-9. Cardiff’s doggedness in defence and ability to win turnovers – as seen with a textbook ruck penalty won by youngster Jenkins in his 22 – launched them forward again and Patchell took full advantage with penalties after 51 and 56 minutes. A powerful Leinster scrum, with replacement prop Royce Burke-Flynn making his presence felt, allowed Nacewa to boot the province back in front with 14 minutes remaining. That set up a grandstand finish with Jenkins doing really well to hold up Bryan Byrne from an advancing Leinster maul. However, a series of scrums and lineouts near the Cardiff line saw Cullen’s charges go for the jugular, particularly after Navidi saw yellow for a maul infringement. Their persistence paid off when Cardiff gave way at a five-metre scrum and referee Ben Whitehouse signalled for a penalty try which Nacewa converted. The Blues should have taken something from the game, but Patchell’s long range drop goal attempt drifted wide in the final seconds. Leinster picked up their first Guinness PRO12 win under new head coach Leo Cullen as they overcame a battling Cardiff Blues side 23-15 at the the RDS. center_img Jack Conan’s 16th-minute try from close range had Cullen’s youthful team leading 10-9 at half-time, with Cardiff fly-half Rhys Patchell booting three penalty goals – two of them from distance. Patchell’s accuracy from the tee had the Blues 15-13 ahead entering the final quarter, but the Leinster forwards, including man-of-the-match Josh van der Flier, dictated play late on and they were rewarded with a clinching penalty try, four minutes from the end. last_img read more

Jack Grealish set to train with under-21s again at Aston Villa

first_img Grealish, 20, was warned about his off-field behaviour in April by then Villa manager Tim Sherwood after he was photographed apparently taking nitrous oxide. In June, Villa said they would speak to him after photographs were published appearing to show him lying in the street while on holiday in Tenerife. Grealish made his Villa debut in 2014 and has made 12 appearances, scoring once, this season. Defeat to Watford left Villa seven points from the safety line but Garde could ring the changes, specifically in defence, for Saturday’s trip to Southampton. He said afterwards: “It is not always individuals, it is sometimes collective. But also as individuals, for sure, they have to improve their level.” Meanwhile, former boss Sherwood has backed Villa to survive despite their desperate situation. Sherwood was sacked in October after six straight defeats and replaced by Garde earlier this month but he believes they can stay up. “I wish them well,” Sherwood told the Daily Telegraph. “It’s difficult when you lose your three best players and you finished 17th in the Premier League the previous season. It was always going to be a tough task. “The club is always going to be bigger than any individual. I respect their decision. I believe they will stay up this season. There were some good times in a very short period.” The midfielder was dropped for Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Watford after being pictured in a nightclub following the previous 4-0 loss at Everton. Press Association Sport understands Grealish was expected to link up with the under-21s again after manager Garde last week insisted he needed to act more professionally and issued the punishment as Villa battle relegation from the Barclays Premier League. Jack Grealish was due to train with Aston Villa’s under-21 squad on Monday but could return to the first-team fold later as boss Remi Garde contemplates changes. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

GCB Inter-County U-15 tournament Prashad, spinners star in Berbice big win

first_img… Demerara make light work of EssequiboTHE GCB President’s X1 crumbled against spin bowling to crash to a 147-run defeat against Berbice in the opening round of the Inter-County Under-15 tournament yesterday at the Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) ground.Chasing 196, a batting meltdown saw them bundled out for just 49 in 29.5 overs, giving the Ancient County side a perfect start to the tournament.The GCB President’s X1 began their chase steadily as openers Shamma Yearwood and Mahendra Goepilall put together 21 for the first wicket before a mix-up between the two batsmen, resulted in Goepilall’s dismissal for seven.However, left-arm spinner Akash Herelall and off-spinner Abdur Ramsammy then produced two excellent spells of bowling, to rip through the President’s X1’s batting line-up, who had no answers for the guile and deception of the spinning duo.After losing the first wicket, the innings never really looked set to take off and stuttered and stumbled for the remainder of the innings.Herelall finished with figures of 4-5, while Ramsammy ended with 3-8.Earlier, Berbice rallied around a third-wicket partnership of 120, between Daniel Dharamdat and Marvan Prashad to pose a challenging total.The Man-of-the-Match, Prashad, stroked a composed 67, while Dharamdat chipped in with a fluent 44.Asked to bat first, Berbice made a disappointing start when they lost both their openers inside the first seven overs.Akash Herelall (left) and Abdur Ramsammy share seven wickets.Sarwan Chaitnarine (2), was bowled by Ronaldo Duraws, while Raynaldo Mohamed removed Ricardo Ramdial (11) at 21-2.However, it was a little better thereafter when Dharamdat and Prashad settled in and featured in a crucial partnership, which was the backbone in the total.The pair were allowed to score freely, and in the process played a wide selection of shots, with Prashad passing his half-century.But it was off-spinner Joel Gilkes, who provided the vital breakthrough when he removed Prashad. Dharamdat followed soon after to Danny Atkinson.Following those two dismissals, wickets started to tumble, with left-arm spinner Mohamed being the chief destroyer to finish with figures of 4-36.Berbice kept losing wickets at regular intervals and were bowled out off the final delivery of the innings with no other batsmen offering any resistance.Meanwhile, in the other first-round game played at the Police Sports Club ground, Demerara made light work of Essequibo, whipping the visitors by 112 runs.Batting first Demerara made 176-9, with Shoaib Shaw hitting 56. Essequibo in reply were bowled out for 64 in 26.5 overs. Andre Seepersaud (3-15) was the most successful bowler for Demerara.The tournament continues today, with Berbice facing Demerara at Enmore, while Essequibo will come up against the GCB President’s X1 at Everest.last_img read more
