Beth Mead: l’attaquant anglais “en avance sur le calendrier” dans la récupération d’une blessure au LCA

Beth Mead (au centre) est l’une des quatre joueuses d’Arsenal actuellement blessées au LCA, avec Vivianne Miedema, Leah Williamson et Laura Wienroither (à droite).

L’attaquante de l’Angleterre et d’Arsenal, Beth Mead, a déclaré qu’elle était “en avance sur le calendrier” dans la récupération de sa blessure au ligament croisé antérieur, mais ne sait pas si elle sera apte pour la Coupe du monde.

Le joueur de 28 ans est absent depuis novembre après rompre son ACL lors d’une défaite en Super League féminine contre Manchester United.

L’Angleterre affrontera Haïti lors de son match d’ouverture de la Coupe du monde en Australie le 22 juillet.

“Je suis de retour sur un terrain en train de taper à nouveau dans un ballon, je me sens bien”, a déclaré Mead.

S’exprimant sur Sky Sports après avoir reçu un MBE pour ses services au football, elle a ajouté: “Je suis en avance sur le calendrier, c’est donc tout ce que je peux faire sous mon contrôle pour le moment.

“Je ne dirais pas que je suis confiant [of getting to the World Cup] parce que c’est hors de mon contrôle mais je travaille dur pour m’en approcher le plus possible.

“En fin de compte, ce sera probablement celui de Sarina [Wiegman] décision.”

Mead a remporté à la fois le Golden Boot et le prix du joueur du tournoi alors que l’Angleterre a remporté l’Euro l’été dernier.

Le retour de l’attaquant donnerait un coup de pouce bienvenu à l’entraîneur-chef Wiegman, qui sera sans la capitaine Leah Williamson à cause d’une blessure au LCA et de la milieu de terrain Fran Kirby, qui a confirmé qu’elle manquer le tournoi en Australie en raison d’une blessure au genou.

La défenseure de Chelsea Millie Bright a également été exclue pendant plusieurs semaines après la blessure au genou qu’elle a subie en mars.

Mais Wiegman a déclaré en mars que c’était “peu probable” que Mead sera nommé dans l’équipe d’Angleterre pour la Coupe du monde.

Luis Enrique demande deux joueurs au PSG après avoir perdu Mbappé : 200 millions d’euros

Published

on

Spread the love

Ils sortent le chéquier pour tenter de combler le vide laissé par le joueur français.

Luis Enrique sait qu’il doit réagir immédiatement après avoir perdu Mbappé et a demandé deux rebuts du Real Madrid qui représenteront un investissement important.

Le départ de Mbappé vers le Real Madrid a été un coup dur. Tout d’abord, parce qu’ils perdent leur meilleur joueur, autour duquel ils ont construit tout leur projet, et en plus il part gratuitement pour un rival.

Mais pour Luis Enrique, c’est encore pire. Il se retrouve sans le seul joueur qui a répondu présent dans tous les matchs, qui a été le meilleur buteur et qui a vraiment créé du danger sur le but adverse.

C’est pourquoi il a demandé à la direction une réaction immédiate. Il est vrai qu’ils n’ont pas reçu un euro du départ de Kylian, mais avec l’argent qu’ils économisent sur son salaire, ils veulent réaliser plusieurs opérations.

Plus précisément, l’Asturien a demandé deux rebuts du Real Madrid, deux joueurs qu’ils ont suivis de très près mais qui ont finalement été repoussés car ils ont préféré se concentrer sur d’autres opérations.

Deux cibles du Real Madrid

Le PSG veut tout faire pour s’attacher les services d’Osimhen et de Kvaratskhelia, les deux joueurs de Naples que les Italiens ne lâcheront pas facilement s’ils n’ont pas une bonne somme d’argent devant eux.

Les Parisiens le savent, c’est pourquoi ils sont prêts à offrir 202 millions d’euros pour les signer cet été. Un pari important pour tenter de combler le vide laissé par Kylian.

Comme nous l’avons dit, tous deux étaient suivis par le Real Madrid, mais les signatures de Mbappé lui-même et d’Endrick ont fait qu’ils ont finalement renoncé à les poursuivre.

Lamine Yamal’s year of records – can Spain star add one more in Euro 2024 final?

Published

on

Spread the love

Not all of Yamal’s appearances so far have come aged 16… because he was 15 when he made his Barcelona debut.

Aged 15 years and 290 days he became Barcelona’s youngest player in the La Liga era when he replaced Gavi with six minutes to go in a 4-0 win over Real Betis on 29 April 2023.

On 20 August, at the age of 16 years and 38 days, he became the youngest player since 1939 to start a La Liga game when he lined up in a 2-0 win over Cadiz.

One week later he became the youngest player to assist a La Liga goal in the 21st century when he crossed for Gavi to head in during a 4-3 win at Villarreal.

He became the youngest player to start a game in the Champions League, at 16 and 83 days, in a 1-0 win at Porto on 4 October.

Four days later he became the youngest goalscorer in La Liga history when he netted in the first half of a 2-2 draw at Granada.

He became the youngest player to play in El Clasico, the youngest player to set up a Champions League goal, aged 16 years and 153 days at Antwerp, and the youngest player and scorer in the Spanish Super Cup.

Yamal also became the youngest player to score in the Spanish Cup this century, the youngest player to score twice in a La Liga game, the youngest player in a Champions League knockout game and a quarter-final.

Unsurprisingly he is the youngest player to make 50 appearances for Barcelona and the youngest player to play 10 Champions League games.

Even Lamal could not match the records of Armand Martinez Sagi, though. He was Barcelona’s youngest ever player and scorer at the age of 14 in the Catalan Championship in 1920 – nine years before Spain had a national league.

Among the few major records he has missed out on are youngest player in the Champions League (Youssoufa Moukoko was 16 years and 18 days for Borussia Dortmund against Zenit St Petersburg in 2020) or La Liga (Luka Romero was 15 years and 219 days old for Mallorca against Real Madrid in 2020).

He has yet to net in the Champions League and will not have the chance to break Ansu Fati’s record as youngest scorer, aged 17 years and 40 days for Barcelona against Inter Milan in 2019, in that tournament now.

Euro 2024: Why Kobbie Mainoo has ‘wow factor’ and could be one of greats – Rio Ferdinand

Published

on

Spread the love

It took Gareth a little while to realise Kobbie is the right man to partner Declan Rice in England’s midfield.

First he tried Trent Alexander-Arnold at these Euros, then it was Conor Gallagher. But Gareth knows now, and so does everyone else. You cannot leave Kobbie out.

I said that straight away after I watched us beat Slovakia in the last 16, which was the first competitive international Kobbie had started.

I thought there was no way Gareth could have watched that game and thought ‘oh, we still need to experiment in midfield’. The kid showed he is the real deal, so that’s it. He has to play.

Kobbie’s age and lack of experience is almost irrelevant. He already plays way beyond his years. He knows he belongs at this level and it is like nothing fazes him at all.

On Sunday, he is going to be playing in a European Championship final as a teenager but there is no way the size of the occasion is going to intimidate him.

We saw that at the FA Cup final, not just with his man-of-the-match performance but also his celebration, or lack of it, after helping Manchester United beat Manchester City at Wembley. A lot of other players his age would be a bit over-exuberant maybe, but he is just so level-headed and calm.

Part of that is down to his background. I spent a bit of time with his family earlier in the tournament, and after the semi-final win over the Netherlands too.

They were enjoying themselves and having a good time, soaking it all up the same way I expect Kobbie is, but without going crazy or getting carried away. They are all really lovely, balanced, grounded, well-rounded people, which is why he is the same and appears to be unaffected by fame.

Marcelo Bielsa criticises Colombia fans, organisers and media in Copa America rant

Published

on

Spread the love

Uruguay manager Marcelo Bielsa says his players deserve an apology from Colombia fans for the brawl that broke out following his side’s Copa America semi-final defeat on Wednesday.

Disorder broke out between a number of Uruguay players – led by Liverpool forward Darwin Nunez – and a set of Colombia fans in the stands at the Bank of America Stadium in North Carolina.

The Colombia fans were seated in an area where many family members of the Uruguay squad were also sitting.

Conmebol. South American football’s governing body, has opened an investigation into the incident, with suggestions that some Uruguay players could face bans for their actions.

“How can you not defend your mother, your sister, a baby?” Bielsa said in a press conference before his side’s third-place play-off against Canada.

“If they did not do it, they would have been condemned by all of us.”

Asked if he feared sanctions for his team, Bielsa said: “The sanction does not have to be for the footballers, but for those who forced them to act like this.

“This is a witch hunt. It is a shame.”

More than 70,000 fans were in attendance in Charlotte, with estimates suggesting more than 90% of the crowd was there in support of Colombia.

More than a dozen Uruguay players climbed into the crowd during the melee, which lasted more than five minutes.

The Copa America is being held in the United States for the second time, as the country prepares to co-host the 2026 World Cup, but Bielsa says not enough has been done to protect his players.

“We are in the United States, the country of security,” he said.

England 2-1 Republic of Ireland: Russell goal ‘huge’ for Irish – Gleeson

Published

on

Spread the love

Courtesy of being in League A, the Irish are guaranteed a play-off in their bid to reach the Euro 2025 finals in Switzerland next summer.

Russell’s goal helps the Republic’s goal difference as they look to improve their seeding ahead of the play-off draw on 19 July.

But the Irish made a bad start in Norwich as Arsenal forward Russo opened the scoring within five minutes.

Stanway converted a penalty in the 57th minute after Niamh Fahey brought Lauren Hemp down in the area.

“Obviously we conceded an early goal which is what we didn’t want to do,” Gleeson added.

“We had a bit of a shaky start but we settled.

“In the first half we weren’t really offering a lot up top. We got into good positions two or three times in the first half but the final quality wasn’t good enough.”

Gleeson introduced Russell and Liverpool forward Leanne Kiernan for fresh legs, and she said that had a “huge impact” on the game.

Russell got on the end of a flick-on by Caitlin Hayes to volley home as the Irish pressed for a consolation.

“They were energetic and they hassled,” Gleeson added.

“They were really positive changes, and I thought Aoife Mannion was solid and Megan Campbell came on. Yeah, the throw helps but they were great. It was really commendable from the girls.”

The Republic round out their qualifying campaign at home to France, who have already qualified, on Tuesday in Cork.

England Women: Alessia Russo and Sarina Wiegman want more from Lionesses after beating Republic of Ireland

Published

Spread the love

Russo scored England’s opening goal after five minutes, rounding goalkeeper Courtney Brosnan and slotting into an empty net after a smart first-time pass from Beth Mead.

Georgia Stanway made it 2-0 from the penalty spot in the second half, before Julie Russell grabbed a goal late on for the Republic of Ireland.

Jess Carter, Lauren Hemp and Mead were all denied by Brosnan early on and several players opted not to shoot in strong positions.

“We have been training on that a lot,” said Wiegman, when asked why her players appeared hesitant to shoot, particularly in the first half.

“Sometimes when you work on things you might exaggerate the other way on the other options you have. We did say at half-time: ‘If you have the opportunity to shoot, please shoot!’

“The team are really working hard on it, but you still want to make the right decisions.”

Wiegman added: “We dominated the game. We became a little bit more sloppy [after the first goal].”

England sit second in their group after leaders France beat Sweden 2-1 in Friday’s other match, while the Republic of Ireland are bottom.

The top two teams in each League A group qualify automatically for Euro 2025. The other two sides drop into the play-offs.

Wiegman’s side will guarantee their spot at the finals in Switzerland if they avoid defeat by Sweden in Gothenburg.

“Of course playing against Sweden – whether it’s a friendly or not – is a big game. This is fighting for a spot in the Euros,” added Wiegman.

“If you don’t get a result, you’re in the play-offs, which they don’t want and we don’t want. We need to be at the top level and so do they.”
