first_imgSergio Ramos of Spain looks dejected after the UEFA Nations League group stage match between Switzerland and Spain at St. Jakob-Park on November 14, 2020 in Basel, Switzerland. – Advertisement – Highlights of the Nations League Group A3 match between Switzerland and Spain Sergio Ramos had two penalties saved in his 177th game for Spain – the record for most international caps by a European player – before a late goal by Gerard Moreno earned a 1-1 draw with Switzerland in the Nations League on Saturday.Ramos had scored all of his previous 25 penalties but was thwarted when Yann Sommer guessed the right way and repelled his spot kick in the 58th minute to preserve his side’s lead.- Advertisement – The Spain captain, who overtook Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon’s record for the most international caps by a European player (176), won the first penalty when his header hit Ricardo Rodriguez on the back of the arm, but he failed to capitalise on the advantage.Switzerland had gone ahead in the 23rd minute through Remo Freuler and could have doubled their lead in the second half but Ramos came to his side’s rescue with a goal-line clearance.Spain then earned a second penalty in the 79th minute which led to Swiss defender Nico Elvedi being sent off. However, Ramos was again outwitted by Sommer, who could not be fooled by the defender’s poorly-taken Panenka penalty and easily caught the ball. preview image 3:24 Highlights of the Nations League Group A4 match between Germany and Ukraine 1:35 Highlights of the Nations League Group A3 match between Portugal and France 2:41 Watch Sergio Ramos miss two penalties as Spain dropped points against Switzerland in their Nations League group A4 gamecenter_img France should have been ahead by half-time but Anthony Martial missed three chances, two saved by Rui Patricio and one hitting the crossbar.

He gave his side the lead when he held off Mateo Kovacic to side-foot home his first goal for his country in the 36th minute.Danielson made it two in first-half stoppage time, swooping in at the near post to send Sebastian Larsson’s corner flying into the net with a glancing header to cap Sweden’s best 45 minutes of the competition so far.They continued to dominate in the second half but Croatia muscled their way back into the game and pulled a goal back when an Ivan Perisic header deflected off Danielson and into the net.In Nations League C1, Cyprus recorded a first win of the campaign after coming from behind to pull off a shock 2-1 victory over Luxembourg, who finished with 10 men in Nicosia.

Switzerland stay in last place and can avoid relegation to the Nations League League B by beating Ukraine on Tuesday.France handed defending Nations League champions Portugal a rare defeat, winning 1-0 in Lisbon with N’Golo Kante’s second-half strike enough to reach the competition’s final four at the expense of the holders.Kante scored only his second France goal in the 54th minute to leave them top of League A Group 3 with 13 points from five games, three ahead of Portugal and with the better head-to-head record to give themselves an unassailable lead. – Advertisement – Sweden 2-1 Croatia Ukraine almost equalised in the 53rd when Oleksandr Zinchenko’s deflected shot beat goalkeeper Manuel Neuer but bounced off the post.Werner fired in his second goal of the evening in the 64th before Ukraine hit the woodwork twice more in a strong finish.Goals from Dejan Kulusevski and Marcus Danielson snapped Sweden’s four-game losing streak in the Nations League as they beat Croatia 2-1 in Stockholm.Needing a win to avoid relegation from Group A3, the victory keeps Sweden’s survival hopes alive as they head into their final group game against France in Paris on Wednesday, despite still being bottom of the group.Sweden boss Janne Andersson had to watch the game from home following a positive test for COVID-19 and 20-year-old forward Kulusevski was chosen to start up front with Marcus Berg. – Advertisement –last_img read more

Saido Berahino says he ‘would jump at the chance’ to return to West Brom

first_imgSAIDO BERAHINO says he “would jump at the chance” to return to West Brom.The 26-year-old striker burst onto the scene with the Baggies and was believed to be on the verge of stepping up from the England Under-21 squad into the seniors in 2015.2 Saido Berahino says he would jump at the chance to return to West BromBut a sharp decline in form following a failed move to Tottenham that same year has led the once-feared frontman from the fringes of an international breakthrough and Champions League football to the Belgian backwaters.Berahino left the Hawthorns in 2017 for an unhappy two-year spell at Stoke which produced just three goals in 53 matches and relegation for the Potters.Now having kickstarted his career at Zulte Waregem with six strikes in 16 games he is open to returning to English football – especially ex-employers West Brom.If West Brom came back for me, I would jump back as soon as I can.SAIDO BERAHINOSpeaking on the Counter Attack podcast regarding that failed switch to Spurs, the Burundi international said: “I think the only thing that it changed was the way people viewed me. It brought in extra pressure that I didn’t need at the time.“I think if I had somebody around me that told me: ‘Look, Saido, you’re not going to move, forget about it – you’ve already done it, you’ve already proven that you can attract a big club, now let’s go and attract two or three big clubs’.“I never had that type of guidance. I just thought ‘wow, my life is ended’, really. “(I thought) ‘I want to play Champions League, I want to’… no disrespect to West Brom.“I loved my time at West Brom. Even if West Brom came back for me, I would jump back as soon as I can.”LATEST FOOTBALL NEWSTHE WIN CROWDFA Cup final ‘may see 20,000 at Wembley in trial allowing some fans at games’CommentPHIL THOMASDiving and whining was never a good look and will seem worse after lockdownExclusive’I’M IN A BAD WAY’Ex-England star Kenny Sansom talks for first time since being attackedExclusiveBOURNE AGAINHowe says Cherries are stronger after lockdown with FIVE fit-again starsExclusiveSWAN THAT GOT AWAYSwansea wanted £3m Davies three years ago but couldn’t get work permitNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticWhen Berahino was asked to clarify that comment, he said: “100 per cent. I love West Brom.“I still support them, I still follow their games, my friend plays for them. If they came back for me, 100 per cent I would go back. 100 per cent.“But I just felt that at the time I’d had had a great season and Tottenham’s come in and that’s going to improve my level even more, playing with other good players.“Obviously the manager as well that they had at the time (Mauricio Pochettino) was really into young players, so I thought it would develop my progress fast if I went there. But obviously it didn’t work out that way so it is what it is.”2 Berahino has kickstarted his career at Zulte Waregem with six strikes in 16 Belgian top-flight gamesCredit: Getty[pod_component pod_component_config_id=”apEdj7MkN” pod_component_config_url=”https://www.thesun.co.uk/nu-sun-pod-component-config-prod/apEdj7MkN.json” pod_component_config_loader_url=”https://www.thesun.co.uk/nu-sun-pod-loaders-prod/1.66.0/componentLoader.js?101297″ src=”https%3A%2F%2Fiframe.thesun.co.uk%2Fnu-sun-pod-widgets-prod%2Fiframe-pod.html%3Fid%3DapEdj7MkN%26script%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.thesun.co.uk%2Fnu-sun-pod-loaders-prod%2F1.66.0%2FcomponentLoader.js%3F101297%26config%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.thesun.co.uk%2Fnu-sun-pod-component-config-prod%2FapEdj7MkN.json”]last_img read more

Darlene Thomas again raising funds for Hope Air with Wheel-a-Thon

first_imgThe service is for people of all ages with a wide range of illnesses and last year alone provided over 4,000 flights to British Columbians. Since it launched its mission in 1986, the nation-wide number of assistance flights is up to 78,000.For several years now, Darlene has been among the beneficiaries of Hope Air, as her travel is not covered by the provincial Medical Services Plan, and without the free service would be a major obstacle on her path to recovery. Last year she raised $700 dollars, and this year is hoping to double that amount by holding another Wheel-a-Thon at the walking track at the Pomeroy Sport Centre. It starts tomorrow afternoon 2 p.m. and pledges can be made at the walking track or online at www.hopeair.ca.- Advertisement –last_img
