Chelsea 7-0 Everton: les champions frappent les visiteurs pour garder la défense du titre entre leurs mains

Published

on

Spread the love

Chelsea a impitoyablement exposé Everton pour garder fermement la défense de son titre de Super League féminine entre ses mains avec quatre matchs à jouer.

Guro Reiten, Sam Kerr, Pernille Harder, Sophie Ingle et Jessie Fleming ont marqué en première mi-temps alors que Chelsea maintenait son record parfait à domicile dans la WSL.

Harder et Erin Cuthbert ont porté l’avance à sept après la pause.

Chelsea prend la deuxième place du classement, à quatre points de Manchester United, avec deux matchs en moins.

Everton, qui accueillera Arsenal lors de son prochain match, reste sixième du classement.

Les Blues conserveront leur titre s’ils remportent leurs quatre derniers matches de la saison, et la manager Emma Hayes a déclaré que son équipe chronométrait sa course pour réussir.

“Il s’agit de culminer aux bons moments de la saison”, a déclaré Hayes à Sky Sports.

“Nous avons couru dans la ligue toute l’année et nous savons que nous devons être parfaits pour gagner la ligue cette année, mais c’était le genre de performance et les objectifs dont nous avions besoin pour nous aider à démarrer.”

Un pas de géant vers un quatrième titre consécutif

Lorsque les Bleus ont échappé de justesse à la Ligue des champions à Barcelone le mois dernier, la formule est devenue simple : remporter les six matchs restants de la saison et réaliser un doublé en championnat et en coupe.

Victoire sur Liverpool mercredi a été le premier obstacle surmonté avec succès et les Blues ont rapidement pris leur envol contre l’autre équipe de haut niveau du Merseyside.

Reiten a ouvert le score avec une finition clinique alors qu’elle prenait une touche pour se mettre à l’intérieur de la zone avant de briser une finition inclinée devant Courtney Brosnan.

Kerr est intervenu peu de temps après avec une tête bondissante pour rencontrer le délicieux centre de Niamh Charles, bien que l’Australienne ait semblé atterrir maladroitement alors qu’elle revenait sur terre et devait être remplacée peu de temps après.

Harder a été introduit sur le banc pour combler le vide et l’attaquante danoise n’aurait pas pu rêver d’un meilleur impact puisqu’elle a ajouté un troisième but avec sa première touche dans le match après une sublime première fois avec son pied gauche.

Plus de pression à Chelsea et une défense plus paniquée d’Everton ont vu Jessie Fleming rester calme alors qu’elle remettait le ballon à Ingle pour marquer un quatrième but avec une finition guidée du pied latéral depuis l’extérieur de la surface.

Et les hôtes n’en avaient pas fini là-bas alors que Fleming est passé de fournisseur à buteur avec une frappe radicale de la réduction de Harder à l’intérieur de la surface.

Hayes se dit satisfaite de l’efficacité de son équipe devant le but.

Elle a ajouté: “Nous étions vraiment cliniques, nous avons marqué trois buts sur quatre tirs, ce qui était efficace mais la performance dans les 20 premières minutes n’était pas acceptable.

“Je pensais que nous avions du mal à maîtriser le jeu, nous n’avons pas mis de pression sur le ballon, nous avons donc dû ajuster cela.” Nous avons une finale de coupe la semaine prochaine, tout le monde veut jouer. Vous voyez Pernille Harder revenir. Nous avons raté beaucoup de buts cette saison sans elle et Fran Kirby.”

Le défi d’Everton était terminé en première mi-temps, mais ils se sont améliorés après la pause car ils semblaient accepter l’inévitabilité de la défaite et jouaient avec plus de liberté.

Chelsea était en roue libre et n’avait pas le même avantage jusqu’à ce que Harder étende la tête avec une autre première arrivée, mais avec son pied droit.

Cuthbert a ajouté un septième en fin de match alors que Chelsea doublait le nombre de buts à l’extérieur qu’Everton avait concédés toute la saison en un après-midi à Kingsmeadow.

Les Blues accueillent Leicester lors de leur prochain match de championnat avant d’affronter Manchester United, son rival en titre, lors de la finale de la FA Cup dans un stade de Wembley à guichets fermés le 14 mai.

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

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.”

Denmark, meanwhile, took an impressive 3-0 win away to Belgium, meaning they will progress from Group A2 alongside Spain.
