Neymar will head back to Barcelona sooner than planned

first_img IN SPORT.ES CEST Neymar was involved in a scrap with Bolivia’s Pedro Azoque. Referee Wilson Lamouroux booked both men and that should mean he travels back to Barcelona soon.  Neymar regresa a Barcelona Sport EN Upd. at 14:44 07/10/2016 Neymar is ready to pack his bags and head home to Barcelona from the Brazil camp. Not because of the brutal elbow smash which forced him off against Bolivia in Brazil’s 5-0 win, but because he was booked in the game and is now suspended for the next clash, against Venezuela.  Luis Enrique will be pleased, with the star then available to train in the build up to the clashes with Deportivo de la Coruna and after that, Manchester City in the Champions League. Neymar’s booking also ensures he will be able to play Messi’s Argentina in Brazil’s next game after Venezuela.last_img read more

Powered by Firework Next month will see at long last Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez have their long-awaited rematch on HBO pay per view, with Irishman Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan expected on the undercard.Advertisement O’Sullivan has been plugging away in recent years since a defeat to Chris Eubank Jr and has amassed an impressive string of victories on American television that has now led to the biggest opportunity of his career to date.Advertisement Being a part of such a huge bill in Las Vegas next month is something he’s clearly taken deadly serious too, as he already appears to be in career-best condition well out from the fight:Should the Irishman win he could very well find himself in contention for a world title shot afterward.Whether it be the winner of Golovkin vs Canelo or even a rematch with old friend Billy Joe Saunders.Lemieux comes into the fight perhaps for the taking for O’Sullivan after Saunders completely outboxed and shut him down last December in Canada and then recorded a low key win in Canada last May.O’Sullivan is surely the form fighter of the two.Opportunity comes knocking very rarely in boxing. O’Sullivan knows a win on September 15th could set up a life-changing chance for him afterward.Style-wise both he and Lemieux possess a similarly aggressive, come forward, big punching mode of combat, so expect fireworks if it is to be Lemieux on September 15th.An announcement is expected in the coming days and week ahead.Also Read-Boxing: Adrien Broner vs Sergey Lipinets possible for later this year Advertisementlast_img read more

Powered by Firework Manchester City has been one of the most in form teams in Europe’s top leagues this season and were hailed as favourites against a struggling Manchester United side, and the Citizens lived up to that label with a comfortable 3-1 win against their neighbours at the Etihad.Advertisement Manchester United’s confidence after 3 straight wins, including an impressive comeback victory against Juventus in Turin, was completely shattered by the end of the 90 minutes. City scored the opening goal via David Silva in the 12th minute of the game. United’s recent record of winning matches despite being a goal down might have given them some confidence despite the deficit but City doubled their lead in the 48th minute when Sergio Aguero scored his 8th goal of the campaign, making him the current top scorer of the league.Advertisement United got a goal back through an Anthony Martial penalty which might have sparked some hope of a comeback victory like last season, but the man behind that victory, Paul Pogba, was not even on the bench for the Red Devils in this game. Iilkay Gundogan finished the game off in the dying minutes to restore City’s two goal advantage as Pep Guardiola’s side maintain a 2 point lead at the top of the table.United face Crystal Palace at home while City face West Ham away next in the Premier League.Advertisement Read also :Real Betis stun Barcelona despite a brace from Lionel MessiMkhitaryan late equalizer helps Gunners salvage a draw against Wolves Advertisementlast_img read more

For the second consecutive year, the WWE Championship changed hands prior to Survivor Series as Daniel Bryan beat AJ Styles for his fourth title reign.Advertisement It all started with a war of words between the two competitors that ultimately led to an all-out brawl before both had to be separated by WWE Officials. In an evenly contested match, Styles went to the top rope to land a Phenomenal Forearm however, Bryan, evaded it and instead, the former WWE Champion collided with the referee.Daniel took advantage of the situation and struck AJ with a low blow followed by a running knee and grabbed the pinfall victory. An unexpected heel turn from Bryan also resulted in him earning the opportunity to face Brock Lesnar in a Champion v Champion match this Sunday.Becky Lynch ruled out for Survivor SeriesThe invasion on the Monday Night RAW Women’s Division led to Becky Lynch suffering a broken nose in the carnage and consequently, it was confirmed this Tuesday night that the SmackDown Women’s Champion has not been cleared to compete at Survivor Series.However, Lynch remained confident and insisted that she would still kick Rousey’s ass with a broken face. The Man then shifted her attention to picking her replacement for this Sunday and after overseeing every superstar of the SmackDown Women’s roster in the ring, Becky hand picked Charlotte Flair to face the RAW Women’s Champion.The two old bitter enemies put aside their past rivalries aside and stood united for the Blue brand as Charlotte will square up against Ronda Rousey in a dream match for the WWE Universe.Jeff Hardy vs Andrade Cien AlmasAndrade Cien Almas began strongly off the gates following a series of vicious attacks on his opponent. The Enigmatic Jeff Hardy, however, regrouped and got himself back in the match but couldn’t capitalize on his opportunity to finish the match.Almas too had his moments and was about to hit his signature Hammerlock DDT but Hardy countered it with the Twist of Fate and gave himself the opening to land the Swanton Bomb that secured him the win and also a spot as the final member of the SmackDown Survivor Series team.Rey Mysterio vs The MizRey Mysterio clashed against SmackDown Survivor Series team Captain The Miz with his place on the line. The Miz took the upper hand early on as he locked Mysterio in a submission move although in the latter stages, Rey was able to hit the 619 but Miz dodged the frog splash as he got his knees up and rolled him up for a two count.The A-Lister was frustrated which provided Mysterio with the chance to roll him up for the win and keep his spot on the SmackDown squad intact.The former WWE World Champion’s celebration was cut short as Randy Orton snuck up from behind but Mysterio was able to avoid The Viper’s attacks and instead, Orton flattened The Miz with an RKO.The Usos unveil SD Survivor Series Tag Team lineupThe Usos and The New Day will be joined by The Colons (Epico and Primo), Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson and Sanity for their match against the RAW Tag Teams this Sunday at Survivor Series.The Bar and Big Show vs The New DayBoth teams had a string of near falls but with the match speeding up, Big Show’s presence was the defining point as he eliminated the threat of Xavier Woods.Kofi Kingston was left shorthanded and the numbers game caught up as Big Show landed a knockout punch to Kofi in mid-air and grabbed the W for his team.

Ashique Kuruniyan and Udanta Singh took the charges in the left and the right wing respectively and, Halicharan Narzary, Anirudh Thapa, and Pronay Halder comprised the middle three. The back four had the familiar Pritam Kotal, Sandesh Jhingan, Anas Edathodika, and Subhasish Bose with Bengaluru FC’s Gurpreet Singh Sandhu guarding India from between the sticks.Ashique Kuruniyan started out promisingly for India in the opening minutes as the Thai defenders found his marauding runs and curling crosses difficult to handle. The War Elephants’ Chanathip Songkrasin troubled the Indian midfield a lot with his dribbling skills and Pronay Halder had to do the dirty work of fouling him in the middle of the park.Advertisement Ashique Kuruniyan looked menacing on the left wingThailand slowly and steadily grew into the game and India were put on the backfoot. However, India capitalized on the acres of space left behind by the Thailand defenders and pounced on the counter. In one such move, Sunil Chhetri took a quick throw-in and Ashique dribbled past a couple of defenders to be one-on-one with the rival goalkeeper. His shot was blocked but, the rebound hit a Thai defender’s hand and a penalty was awarded to India.Sunil Chhetri showed no signs of nervousness as he sent the goalkeeper the wrong way and bulged the ball into the bottom left corner in the 27th minute.

Sunil Chhetri spotted Udanta’s run down the right wing who in turn laid it off for Ashique Kuruniyan. The 21-year-old dummied the ball towards India’s talisman who netted in his shot with aplomb.From then on, it was all India as Thailand were second best in every possible department. Sunil Chhetri was again the architect of the third goal as he spotted Udanta’s run in the center of the park. The 22-year-old only had the goalkeeper to beat but he fumbled his lines and passed the ball towards Anirudh Thapa instead. The Chennaiyin FC midfielder made no mistake in smothering the ball in the back of the net.The Indian players celebrate after scoring a much-needed victory against ThailandStephen Constantine made a double substitution for the Blue Tigers in the 77th minute as he brought in Rowllin Borges and Jeje Lalpekhlua in place of Ashique Kuruniyan and Anirudh Thapa. The substitutes’ reposed the coach’s faith three minutes later as their combination gave India a three-goal cushion. Borges intercepted a Thai midfielder’s mispass and laid it off for Jeje. The Mizo Sniper, toe-poked the ball, above the head of the goalkeeper to hit the final nail in Thailand’s coffin.The scoreline ended 4-1 in India’s favor who will lock horns with the hosts, United Arab Emirates, on 10th January.

Cricket: Shane Warne feels it is unfair to compare Sachin and Virat

Powered by Firework Australian legend Shane Warne was the latest figure to weigh in on the Sachin vs Virat debate. The leg spinner feels that it is difficult to compare eras and hence it is unfair to compare the duo.Advertisement The Indian cricket team have been blessed with some of the greatest names to ever play the game and while Sachin Tendulkar is widely regarded as the greatest of all time, Virat Kohli is inching his way towards the pinnacle.Image Courtesy: WWONHowever, Warne feels that the comparison between these two is not justified and he went on to state his reasons ranging from the evolution the game has seen to other factors, Warne said to TOI:Advertisement “Very hard to judge when someone is playing and very hard to judge eras. Think about the bowlers in the ’90s. Different surfaces that seamed. Now they’re a lot flatter. The ball swung more. So many invariables.But to think that someone was better than Brian Lara and Sachin – in those mid-’90s – against Wasim, Waqar, Curtly, Courtney, McGrath, Donald, Saqlain, Mushy, Vettori, Murali, myself. You can go on. Virat is breaking all the records, which is great but I want to wait. See, what people miss is this: You can set benchmarks, score those many centuries, an average that high, score a lot many runs. But what people are going to remember you for is the way you played the game,”Advertisement The Aussie legend heaped praise on Kohli’s character and his role in India’s success in recent times. Warne added:“He’s fantastic. I love watching him bat and I love listening to him. I am a big fan. You know what he does? He stands up for what he believes in. He speaks how he feels and he’s real. He’s emotional, a bit too emotional sometimes on the field. But that’s the part of the charm,”Read Also:Suresh Raina rubbishes rumours about car accidentSanjay Manjrekar trolled for stump mic tweet  Advertisementlast_img read more
