Cabral excited by new challenge

first_img Press Association Basle reached the semi-finals of the Europa League last season, only to lose out to eventual winners Chelsea over two legs, in a run which captivated the club’s fans. However, Cabral, whose Champions League experience could be invaluable to manager Paolo Di Canio, is well aware of the level of support at the Stadium of Light and is looking forward to running out there for the first time. He said: “The Champions League was very good and a great experience for the young players. “Last year, we played in the Europa League and for a Swiss club to reach the semi-finals was very good also. “Now I am playing for Sunderland in England. I am happy. In Basle, there are passionate fans – around 20,000 or so per game – but this is different. “Every game we play, the fans are always there and that is important for the team. In the game, I battle for the fans.” The 24-year-old claimed five league titles and three Swiss Cups during his time with former club Basle, and also had the opportunity to play Champions League and Europa League football. However, he believes England’s top flight represents a whole new test and he is keen to take on the challenge. He told the Black Cats’ official website, “This is a new challenge for me and I am looking forward to it. Playing in Basle, we won everything in Switzerland, and I played in the Champions League and Europa League. Now I have a new challenge in England and, for me, it is the best league.” center_img Sunderland midfielder Cabral is relishing the prospect of testing himself in the Barclays Premier League after winning everything he could in Switzerland.last_img read more

Sadio Mane seals Southampton’s Premier League win against Swansea

first_img Centre-half Van Dijk, the £13million deadline-day signing from Celtic, headed an early opener before Dusan Tadic struck at the start of the second half. Mane then added the third to make it nine goals for free-scoring Saints this week following their Capital One Cup demolition of MK Dons. But Southampton gave themselves some breathing space in the 54th minute when Pelle’s neat chip sent Tadic scampering in behind. The Serbian midfielder looked to have gone too wide but as he cut back inside and shot, the ball looped up off the boot of Ki and flew over Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. And just as Saints fans began regaling their Welsh visitors with a chorus of Swing Low Sweet Chariot, Mane popped up with his fourth goal of the season. Ashley Williams only half-cleared after Pelle prodded the ball goalwards and Mane was on hand to guide a precise, low shot inside Fabianski’s right-hand post from 20 yards. Swansea did at least manage a consolation, ending their recent goal drought, after Neil Taylor was brought down by Jose Fonte in the 82nd minute and Sigurdsson stepped up to tuck in the spot-kick. TWEET OF THE MATCH “@RonaldKoeman: Not our best game but high efficiency and important points! #SaintsFC” – The Southampton boss obviously wanted more from his side despite a comfortable win. RATINGS Southampton Maarten Stekelenburg: 6 Cedric Soares: 6 Jose Fonte: 6 Virgil van Dijk: 7 Ryan Bertrand: 7 Steven Davis: 7 Dusan Tadic: 7 Victor Wanyama: 7 James Ward-Prowse: 6 Sadio Mane: 8 Graziano Pelle: 7 Subs Oriol Romeu: 6 Jay Rodriguez: 6 Swansea Lukasz Fabianski: 5 Neil Taylor: 6 Ashley Williams: 5 Federico Fernandez: 5 Kyle Naughton: 5 Ki Sung-Yeung: 5 Jack Cork: 5 Gylfi Sigurdsson: 5 Jonjo Shelvey: 6 Andre Ayew 5 Bafetimbi Gomis 5 Subs Eder: 5 Jefferson Montero: 5 Leon Britton: 5 STAR PLAYER Sadio Mane: The Senegalese forward looked in the mood from the first whistle and caused Swansea problems all afternoon. Deserved to cap his performance with a goal. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Mane’s goal: Williams only half-cleared the ball and Mane was calm enough to guide the ball inside Fabianski’s left-hand post from 20 yards. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Swansea came to soak up Southampton pressure and maybe hit them on the break. It didn’t work. Southampton’s slick attacking trio of Pelle, Tadic and Mane were too good for the visitors. MOAN OF THE MATCH Swansea leaving Bafetimbi Gomis isolated up front: The French striker always looks a threat when he is on the ball, but cannot do much without it. Might as well have not been on the pitch. WHO’S UP NEXT Chelsea v Southampton (Premier League, Saturday October 3) Swansea v Tottenham (Premier League, Sunday October 4) Swansea, by contrast, are now without a win from their last four matches, although they at least registered their first goal in that stretch when Gylfi Sigurdsson tucked away a penalty. However, the Swans were well beaten by then, as Saturday’s first England-versus-Wales showdown went to the home side. The Swans could have taken the lead in the sixth-minute when Maarten Stekelenburg parried Jonjo Shelvey’s shot into the path of Ki Sung-Yueng. But unfortunately for Ki, the South Korean midfielder’s finish would have looked more at home at Twickenham as he blazed high over the crossbar. Saints began to threaten after Victor Wanyama robbed Andre Ayew and fed Graziano Pelle, who teed up Mane for a shot which he dragged across goal and inches wide. And the opening goal arrived in the 10th minute when Van Dijk shook off the attentions of his marker, former Saint Jack Cork, to power in a near-post header from James Ward-Prowse’s corner. Swansea briefly threatened to rally before half-time but Shelvey’s shot flew over and Stekelenburg saved well low down from Ki. Garry Monk made a double change at half-time, hauling off Cork and the ineffective Bafetimbi Gomis. Virgil van Dijk’s first goal in England and Sadio Mane’s third in a week helped fire Southampton to a 3-1 win over Swansea. Press Associationlast_img read more

Tweaky Blinder: Caps doffed for Lyon’s 350th Test scalp

first_imgNATHAN Lyon’s journey from Adelaide Oval groundsman to world-class off-spinner continued Monday as the veteran reached another milestone by capturing his 350th Test wicket at Edgbaston.Lyon became just the fourth Australian to reach the mark after Shane Warne (708 Test wickets), Glenn McGrath (563) and Dennis Lillee (355).The 31-year-old picked up the seven wickets he needed to join the exclusive club in the first Ashes Test in Birmingham, capturing 3-112 in the first innings before spinning a web around England’s batsmen in the second innings with 6-49, his first five-wicket haul in England.It was a classic off-spinner’s dismissal that brought Lyon his 350th Test scalp – bowling around the wicket, he drew left-hander Ben Stokes forward, extracted his trademark turn and bounce out of the dry surface and took the outside edge of the bat on the way through to wicketkeeper Tim Paine.Lyon now has 14 five-wicket hauls and has taken 10 wickets in a match twice, while he was the leading wicket-taker in Tests in 2017 with 63 scalps.India pair, Ajinkya Rahane and Chesteshwar Pujara, have been his most popular victims, out nine times each, while England duo Alastair Cook and Moeen Ali have been dismissed by the tweaker on eight occasions.Moeen has been Lyon’s favourite victim of late, removing him eight times in his past 10 completed innings against Australia.Remarkably, all nine of Moeen’s dismissals have come in the last 11 innings the pair have played each other.So prolific has Lyon been that no bowler has taken more Test wickets than Lyon’s 350 since he debuted in August 2011 against Sri Lanka in Galle.Ahead of capturing his 300th wicket in South Africa last year, Lyon was asked to nominate his favourite Test wicket to date, and could not look past his brilliant delivery to the Little Master six years ago.“One that stands out was bowling Sachin Tendulkar through the gate,” Lyon told in February 2018.“I think all the videos have been deleted off YouTube so I can’t watch them anymore, but I can tell you it was at Chennai (in 2013), a pretty good ball actually.“There have been a few that stand out, but it’s more about series wins for me at the moment.”last_img read more

USC will lose great senior athletes

first_imgOn Saturday, I went to the men’s volleyball game against California Baptist University. It was Senior Night for the Trojans, and I decided to go because I figured it would be the last time I’d get to see one of the greatest setters in the game play in cardinal and gold. The way the team and the fans celebrated Micah was one of the most palpable emotions I’ve ever experienced.Senior Night made me think about some of the other incredible seniors who will be graduating in 2015. In addition to Micah Christenson, USC will say goodbye to Elizabeth Eddy, Monica Vavic and Garrett Stubbs. That’s not to say the entire class of 2015 won’t be sorely missed, but these four athletes are the ones that have stood out to me in my semester as a sports editor.Christenson led the Trojans as a co-captain for three seasons. In addition to his success at the collegiate level, Christenson has made a name for himself as one of the best setters in the world. Last summer, Christenson was the starting setter for the U.S. Men’s National Team that won an FIVB World League gold medal. He was the only collegian on that team. In 2013, he also served for the national team at the NORCECA Continental Championships and was named as the tournament’s Best Server and Best Setter. Next summer, he will rejoin the men’s national team in Rio for the 2016 Summer Olympics.Christenson will graduate with a degree in human biology. His leadership and skill will be big shoes to fill for the men’s volleyball team next season.Eddy is one of the most talented Women of Troy to play for USC. She excelled in not only one, but two sports during her time at USC. Eddy’s natural athletic ability has brought her success in soccer as well as lacrosse. Her athleticism allowed room for versatility on the soccer pitch, as Eddy has played nearly every position for the Women of Troy, aside from keeper.Though she was recruited for soccer, Eddy’s love for sports compelled her to take up lacrosse, and she joined the newly formed women’s lacrosse team. Though new to the sport, Eddy earned MPSF honors for her defensive performance.She will leave USC with a degree in business administration. In January 2014, she was drafted by Sky Blue FC in the 2014 National Women’s Soccer League draft.Vavic of the women’s water polo team has had an outstanding collegiate career, topped off by a senior season during which she became USC’s all-time leading scorer with 257 career goals. She is the daughter of Jovan Vavic, the head coach of the men’s and women’s water polo teams. Aside from her sheer talent, she is a team leader whom the Women of Troy will miss. Vavic will graduate with a degree in communication.The baseball team is having one of the best seasons in recent years and is poised to go deep into the playoffs. This year, catcher Garrett Stubbs has emerged as a team leader.Stubbs is batting .354 on the season, with the third highest average on the team. When he isn’t hitting, Stubbs is making heads-up plays behind the plate and leading his pitchers and the rest of the team.Last season, the Baseball Draft Report ranked Stubbs as No. 40 on its 2014 MLB Draft College Catcher to Watch list. The baseball team still has a fair number of games to play this season, but behind the leadership of Stubbs, I am confident that the team will go far.Though graduation is less than a month away, these seniors will be a part of the Trojan family forever. Once a Trojan, always a Trojan.Regan Estes is a sophomore majoring in public relations and Spanish. She is also the sports editor of  the Daily Trojan.
