Hopefully he is not too bad as he is an important player.”On Ross Barkley’s late spotkick miss, the Dane added: “We know Ross, he is going to take the next one as well, he always feels confident with penalties, he is one of the best ones which is why he was on the penalty today.”
Italy coach Mancini delighted to have booked place at Euro 2020by Carlos Volcano13 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveItaly coach Roberto Mancini is delighted to have booked their place at Euro 2020.Mancini praised Italy for showing “patience” to beat Greece 2-0.The Azzurri have won all seven games in Group J and qualified for Euro 2020 with three matches to spare, something the Nazionale have never previously achieved.Jorginho converted a penalty and Federico Bernardeschi’s shot was deflected to secure the victory.Mancini said, “The lads did really well. First of all, I want to thank the fans at the Olimpico for coming out and supporting us, even if the first half when we were a bit tense, perhaps nervous at being back in Rome.“We wanted to dedicate the win to the kids at the children’s hospital,” the Coach told Rai Sport, referring to this week’s team visit.Greece put up a brick wall for an hour, but were eventually broken down by a penalty.“We’ll meet teams who sit back and defend. We were too frenetic in the first half, but should’ve patiently moved the ball around to open up spaces. Instead, we started long balls and that’s no good.“It was a much more relaxed second half, we kept focused and achieved our objective.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say

Liverpool will be without Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane for the start of the Premier League season, claims Lauren, with Africa Cup of Nations duty set to delay their return to domestic duty.Two men who earned a share of the Golden Boot in 2018-19 are readying themselves for international action this summer.Salah is eyeing continental glory with Egypt on home soil, while Sane will be leading the charge for Senegal. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Both nations are expected to go deep into the competition and a final in Cairo is not due to be held until July 19.With that in mind, two key figures in Jurgen Klopp’s plans may be forced to sit out the early stages of the 2019-20 campaign back at Anfield.Former Cameroon international Lauren, who took in spells with Arsenal and Portsmouth during his career, told bwin of the problems facing Liverpool: “Whatever happens, Liverpool will need to start the season without Salah and Mane as they will need a good couple of weeks to rest and recuperate, otherwise their level will drop during the season.“Players will be mentally and physically exhausted and will need a few weeks to recuperate before heading into the new Premier League season.“If they don’t get the rest, there will be a chance that their Premier League campaign will be impacted by a slow start as the players are just too tired to play – this could be trouble for Liverpool as both Salah and Mane will likely be involved in the latter stages of the Africa Cup of Nations.”While warning of potential fatigue at club level, Lauren is not expecting two Champions League winners to be short of sharpness with their respective countries.He added: “The likes of Salah and Mane have played an unbelievable amount of football over the past two seasons, but tiredness will not be a major factor for Salah and Mane in the Africa Cup of Nations. What they lack in physical ability, they will make up for in their mentality going into the competition.“Coming off the back of a Champions League win will compensate for any tiredness and both players will attack this new challenge with a winning mentality which will be interesting to see if Senegal and Egypt play each other. Both players will be confident that they are physically fit and able to win the tournament for their countries.”Landing Cup of Nations glory would help to further enhance the respective reputations of Salah and Mane, with Lauren conceding that they are already among the finest African talents to have graced the Premier League.“It’s impossible to pick the best ever African player to grace the Premier League – you cannot choose just one player when Africa has given the Premier League so much talent,” added the ex-Gunners defender.“You look at players like Kolo Toure, Didier Drogba and countless others and it is impossible to choose between them. You also have to look at people like Salah and Mane and see that they are amazing footballers but there have been so many before them.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the web
CLEMSON, SC – SEPTEMBER 23: A general view of the University of North Carolina Tar Heels versus Clemson Tigers during their game on September 23, 2006 at Memorial Stadium in Clemson, South Carolina. (Photo By Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Despite having three players suspended before the national championship, the Clemson Tigers took care of business against Alabama.It might not be receiving much attention right now, but those suspensions could present additional issues for Clemson next season.Although Dexter Lawrence is heading to the NFL, both tight end Braden Galloway and offensive lineman Zach Giella will still be on the roster. It turns out that the Tigers have nearly three more weeks to continue the appeal process for their players that tested positive for ostarine.Clemson could potentially lose Galloway and Giella for one year if the program doesn’t win its appeal.Dabo Swinney will have a plethora of talent returning for 2019, but the possibility of losing another tight end would really affect the depth chart.The Tigers are losing Milan Richard and Garrett Williams might pursue a career in the military. The latter of these two tight ends started in 13 of 14 games last season.In the event that Galloway is suspended it would leave Clemson with a major hole on its offense.From The Post and Courier:If Williams leaves and if Galloway’s appeal is denied, that would leave J.C. Chalk, who caught two passes for 21 yards in 15 games, as the only tight end with actual experience at the college level. The Tigers also like early enrollee Jaelyn Lay out of Atlanta, though just a few months ago he was playing high school football.Galloway finished his season with only five receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown. Nonetheless, his physical intangibles and potential bodes well for his future success in the next few years.It’s safe to say the next three weeks will be interesting for Clemson.Stay tuned.
GLENDALE, AZ – DECEMBER 30: Running back Miles Sanders #24 of the Penn State Nittany Lions rushes the football against the Washington Huskies during the second half of the Playstation Fiesta Bowl at University of Phoenix Stadium on December 30, 2017 in Glendale, Arizona. The Nittany Lions defeated the Huskies 35-28. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)He might not be the next coming of Saquon Barkley, but Miles Sanders is another intriguing tailback out of Penn State. With the NFL Combine taking place this weekend, he’ll try to boost his draft stock.Once Barkley left the Nittany Lions for the NFL, Sanders became the next workhorse in the backfield. His junior season consisted of 1,274 rushing yards and nine touchdowns.Sanders isn’t exactly the best pass-catching running back in this class, but he did showcase his versatility in 2018. Most projections have him listed as one of the best prospects at his position for this draft.While Sanders obviously won’t have any say in which team selects him in April, the Penn State product would have no issue playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers. During his media session at the combine, Sanders expressed his appreciation for his hometown squad.From TribLive:“I would love to play for Mike Tomlin,” Sanders said Thursday at the NFL Combine. “I asked certain people on the Steelers staff how he is. They said he’s a cool dude, laid back. I know a lot of Pitt players who run into him at the facility. I’d be honored to play for the Steelers.”It’s not likely that Pittsburgh uses an early selection on Sanders due to their depth at the position. Although Le’Veon Bell is set to leave in free agency, James Conner and Jaylen Samuels have shown their ability to shine in an extended role.Nonetheless, it must be refreshing for the Steelers to hear top prospects want to join the franchise amidst all the drama taking place.Sanders will be on the field today in Indianapolis to participate in several drills alongside other running back prospects.[Pittsburgh Tribune-Review]
A good portion of the buzz at the NFL combine has been around D.K. Metcalf and Montez Sweat. But ESPN NFL draft analyst Todd McShay noticed another player who stood out to him in Indianapolis.On a recent edition of SportsCenter, McShay revealed that Ohio State wide receiver Parris Campbell was among the most-impressive players he saw at the NFL combine. McShay pointed to Campbell’s 4.31 40-time and 40″ vertical leap as traits that he really liked in him as a prospect.Campbell’s 4.31-40 time was tied for the fastest among receivers in the draft. His vertical was the fifth-best, while his 135″ broad jump was third-best.The senior wide receiver out of Ohio State had a career-year in 2018. He posted 90 receptions for 1,063 yards and 12 touchdowns – all career highs.The most impressive player I saw Saturday (not named Metcalf)? Ohio State’s Parrish Campbell. pic.twitter.com/pfkO54sUqD— Todd McShay (@McShay13) March 3, 2019NFL.com rates Campbell as an “Instant Starter” who draws comparisons to former Vikings Pro Bowl receiver Percy Harvin.But despite his potential, it is increasingly doubtful that any receiver will be taken ahead of Ole Miss superstar D.K. Metcalf.Tankathon’s mock draft currently has Campbell going No. 70 overall in the third round to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.But after showing off some of the best speed in the 2019 draft class, Campbell’s stock is certainly on the rise.
Of course, it didn’t take long for some on Twitter to point out the hypocrisy in these statements. Coaches, like Petersen, are free to leave at any time.Also, Petersen has accepted transfer players from other programs on his roster. His projected starting quarterback, Jacob Eason, began his college career at Georgia.It’s amazing how the other side of that coin never gets talked about. When someone transfers, they’re leaving the social life, academic structure and locker room culture they know and starting over. That isn’t easy or something most people would do lightly. https://t.co/9CMgXCGtYw— Dan Wolken (@DanWolken) July 24, 2019A fair follow-up question to Chris Petersen would be whether he thinks Jacob Eason tapped out when things got tough at Georgia. https://t.co/JlrR1DZRJF— Dan Wolken (@DanWolken) July 24, 2019Washington HC Chris Petersen “tapped out” of his job at Boise St to go to WashingtonHypocrisy of college coaches knows no bounds https://t.co/dU0Z0GoFAg— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) July 24, 2019Chris Petersen, on the other hand, would never leave a program for a situation he thought was better. https://t.co/k03PQj4IIa— Guy Incognito (@StaircaseWhitt) July 24, 2019Petersen’s comments are very different from Jim Harbaugh’s. The Michigan coach recently said he is in favor of a one-time, penalty-free transfer for all student-athletes.Of course, Petersen is technically correct in saying there’s no guarantee a player will find find a better situation elsewhere.But the fact the portal affords them more autonomy to seek out a fresh start is a good thing, even if Petersen disagrees. SEATTLE, WA – OCTOBER 20: Head coach Chris Petersen of the Washington Huskies looks on during the game against the Colorado Buffaloes at Husky Stadium on October 20, 2018 in Seattle, Washington. (Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images)It seems like every big-name coach is being asked about college football transfers this offseason. Washington’s Chris Petersen spoke about the topic at Pac-12 Media Day today.What Petersen said is drawing him some criticism. A self-professed “old school” coach, it turns out Petersen is not a fan of the transfer portal.He told the media today he finds the portal “harmful” because it might influence an athlete to “tap out” of a difficult situation.Washington HC Chris Petersen says he’s old-school, believes the transfer portal is harmful to the athletes because it “allows them to tap out” when they face a hard situation and just go somewhere else they think things will be better, when oftentimes that’s not the case.— DevilsDigest.com (@DevilsDigest) July 24, 2019

Just horrible.#Damn!— Stephen A Smith (@stephenasmith) September 21, 2019Of course, Michigan could shock the college football world and deliver a second half performance for the ages.

What has he done now? Sourav Ganguly’s cheeky response to question on Ravi Shastri in presserSourav Ganguly gave a cheeky reply to a journalist who had asked the new BCCI president on whether he has had a word with India head coach Ravi Shastri or not after filing his nomination papers for the top job.advertisement Next India Today Web Desk KolkataOctober 18, 2019UPDATED: October 18, 2019 13:16 IST File photo of Sourav Ganguly and Virat Kohli (PTI Photo)HIGHLIGHTSSourav Ganguly and Ravi Shastri had a public fallout in 2017Ganguly was in the CAC panel when Shastri was overlooked for the coach’s post in 2016Shastri had blamed Ganguly for not getting the job back then which he eventually got the next yearSourav Ganguly gave a cheeky reply to a journalist who had asked the new BCCI president on whether he has had a word with India head coach Ravi Shastri or not after filing his nomination papers for the top job.Former India captain Sourav Ganguly was at his wittiest best in a press conference in Kolkata after it was confirmed that he would become the new president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).Ganguly was asked about India head coach Ravi Shastri and whether the two have spoken or not to which the Bengal stalwart gave a cheeky reply.”Have you spoken to Ravi Shastri?” the reporter asked Ganguly, to which he laughed and replied, “Why. What has he done now?”Sourav Ganguly and Ravi Shastri had a public fallout in 2017 before the latter was appointed as the head coach of the senior national team.Ganguly was part of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) that picked Anil Kumble ahead of Shastri as coach in 2016 for a year until the breakdown in relations with Virat Kohli forced the legendary leg-spinner out.Ganguly was reportedly not keen on Shastri again, being a member of CAC in 2017 when Virender Sehwag too had applied. On that occasion, Shastri bagged the job.Shastri’s tenure was extended after he re-applied for the post earlier this year and this time the Kapil Dev-led CAC decided to renew his contract for another 2 years.But even before he became the BCCI boss, Ganguly maintained that the head coach needs to help India win big tournaments to justify his place in the team management.advertisement”Ravi has been doing this for five years (except one year of Anil Kumble) and now been given this responsibility for two more years. So I don’t think anyone else in history has got such a long time with the team.”He is the right choice but he now has to justify. He has two T20 World Cups ahead and in such big tournaments, India needs to find ways to win them,” Ganguly had told India Today in August.Also Read | Ravi Shastri has to win big tournaments to justify appointment: Sourav GangulyAlso Read | Fans wonder what will happen to Ravi Shastri after Sourav Ganguly takes over as BCCI presidentAlso Read | Sourav Ganguly will continue to serve the nation with same passion: Sachin TendulkarFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

We love raw cookie dough.It reminds us of our childhood, when we used to like the spoon clean after our mothers would make a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies. We almost like it better than when the cookies are actually baked. But, eating raw cookie dough isn’t exactly safe. There are raw eggs in there, and we all know what that could mean. Salmonella! The stomach flu! Not exactly worth it if you ask us.Kristen Tomlan came up with a genius idea during a girls’ weekend in Philadelphia. She stopped by and grabbed a tub of cookie dough with her friends, but instead of scooping out the cookie dough onto a baking sheet and popping it in the oven, they ended up devouring it all. Tomian turned into something that we all can enjoy. She opened DŌ in New York’s Greenwich Village. “I love the process of trying new flavors and recipes — the journey of taking raw ingredients and transforming them into a delicious creation that can be shared,” said Tomlan. “I find joy being in the kitchen and baking treats to share with the people in my life. From my kitchen to yours, enjoy the joy of sharing DŌ with your loved ones.”DŌ offers a number of classic flavors, including signature chocolate chip, sugar cookie, brownie batter, oatmeal M&M, and commando — a basic dough with nothing added. There’s also seasonal flavors like red velvet, cake batter, and sugar and kisses. From there, you can add extra ingredients, like chocolate chips, marshmallow fluff, salted caramel, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and more.Simply pick a flavor, add any extra toppings, and have it served in a cone or a cup, and there you go, everyone’s favorite treat ready for you to eat.For more information, visit cookiedonyc.com.

10 Destination-Worthy Food Halls Throughout the U.S. America’s Oldest City Has a Super-Modern Dining and Drinking Scene Everyone knows the best part of travelling is the food. From glamorous five-star restaurants to a humble street cart, it’s through food that you truly meet a country. Sharing a meal fosters conversation and understanding; dishes open a window into a people’s past, values, and traditions. Still, it’s not always terribly apparent where the best food is to be found: that’s where Sapore Travel comes in. They plan unforgettable vacations around food.This simple but genius concept was started by James Imbriani who came by his love of food and travel naturally: his family owns restaurants and has been involved with coordinating luxury and corporate travel. It was Peru, though, where he had his big realization: “Several years ago, I moved from New York to Lima, Peru to work for a company handling incoming luxury travelers. I had the opportunity to travel extensively around the country and these trips solidified the idea that for me, the most memorable cultural exchanges always revolved around food, wine, beer, spirits, etc.”Sapore Travel fosters a deeper, more intimate connection to the country you’re visiting by arranging introductions to a country’s easy-to-miss history and traditions, to fascinating people you might never have otherwise met, and to tastes your palate has been missing. Take, for example, their Croatian trip: you’ll eat freshly-grilled fish drizzled in olive oil while drinking local Malvazija wine; you’ll go truffle hunting outside the picturesque village of Istria where a family of third generation truffle hunters will whip up an incredible meal with the truffles you found! You’ll indulge in the Croatian tradition of spit-cooked lamb, take a private tour of a vineyard outside Sibenik, then enjoy a wine tasting and supper prepared by the winemaker’s wife–who just happens to be one of the nation’s best chefs. Pick olives at one of the best olive oil producer’s farms, and wind up in a 13th century home in Trogir to eat a meal prepared from ingredients you bought at the Medieval city’s market. Salivating yet?In Sicily you’ll get to snack your way through Palermo’s oldest market, surrounded by meats, fish, vegetables, noshing on chickpea fritters or Sicilian pizza. Then you’re off to the 1,000 acre farm for a cooking class using the family’s recipes made with ingredients you picked from their farm, resulting in an al fresco courtyard feast topped off with the estate’s wines. You’ll eat a home-cooked meal from the family of olive oil producers; you’ll sample wines from all over the island; wander through the Catania Fish Market, showcasing freshly-caught octopus, swordfish, sea urchins, and watch lively bargaining for the best bits. It’s a huge piece of Sicilian culture that’s so easy to miss.All of the stressful stuff is taken care of for you: hotels, travel, knowing where to go… all you have to do is relax, enjoy all the new people you meet, and obviously, eat. At the end of your trip you’ll come home with new friends all over the world instead of just knickknacks.With the help of Sapore Travel, you can explore Croatia, Sicily, Peru, Vietnam, Mexico, and even Northern California. They’re continuously adding new destinations, so be on the lookout for the Yucatan Peninsula, Northern Spain, Iceland, as well as New York City.Their hugely knowledgeable experts will even help you plan your own custom trip. You can focus on a region or a type of food– whatever floats your boat. Give them where you’d like to go and the experts at Sapore will do the rest, organizing flights, hard to get reservations, meals, and hotels.Sapore Travel offers unique, unforgettable experiences that will nourish your body and soul.

Editors’ Recommendations A Breakdown of All the Major Types of Car Racing The Duesenberg is owned by Harry Yeaggy of Cincinnati, Ohio, and features Murphy roadster-style coachwork by Bohman & Schwartz of Pasadena, California. Updates include a lengthened hood, slotted fenders, and more contemporary bumpers. Before the car came into Yeaggy’s ownership, it was the property of Edward Beale McLean, who owned the Hope Diamond and whose family owned The Washington Post. Think that would show up on a CarFax report?Taking the Best in Show Concours de Sport trophy was the 1963 Ferrari 250/275P, a centerpiece of the JSL Motorsports Collection in Redwood City, California. Stunning to behold, this car was a nightmare for its racing competition back in the day. In 1963, it won the ADAC Nurburgring 1,000 Kilometers under the stewardship of John Surtees and Willy Mairesse. The same year, Pedro Rodriguez won the Mont Tremblant within the NART class. A year later, Mike Parkes and Umberto Maglioli drove the car to victory at the Sebring 12 Hours endurance race.“I could not be more pleased with the judges’ decisions for the 2018 Amelia Island Concours winners,” said Bill Warner, chairman and founder of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. “We are overjoyed to present the Duesenberg and Ferrari with these honors.”The Concours also honored Emerson Fittipaldi, the only driver to win both the Formula 1 World Championship and the Indianapolis 500 twice. Fittipaldi brought some of the cars he had raced during his time in motorsports, including a 1970 Lotus 72/5, 1974 McLaren M23/5, 1974 Porsche 911 RSR IROC, and 1977 Chevrolet IROC Camaro Z28.If you missed this past weekend’s hoopla, fear not — Pebble Beach Concours is rapidly approaching.

What new bourbon are we pumped about? Which hiking trail are we exploring? Why is the next supercar so cool? The Manual is dedicated to helping men live a more engaged life. Each week, our editors and guests get together for a round-table discussion about what’s new, exciting, and unique in the men’s lifestyle world. So pop open your favorite brew, step into your man cave, and start streaming. For this week’s episode of Beards, Booze, and Bacon: The Manual Podcast, the round-table — Associate Editor Chase McPeak, Food and Drink Editor Sam Slaughter, and host Greg Nibler — chat with special guests (and brothers) Erik and Shannon Duffy of Tender Belly, which produces some of the best bacon The Manual staff has ever tasted.The conversation begins with the most pressing question: How did the Duffy brothers get into the bacon business? The answer is a little more practical (and blunt) than you might expect. The group then turns their attention toward the specifics and technicalities of cured versus uncured bacon (it all boils down to semantics), how the hogs that go into Tender Belly’s beautiful bacon are raised and produced (they’re heritage), how large the pigs have to be before becoming bacon (300 pounds max), and the ever-controversial argument about which method is the best to cook bacon (the brothers have differing opinions).Finally, the guys share their preferred bacon-doneness and briefly talk talk about flavored bacon before landing on Tender Belly’s fantastic Bacon of the Month club, which you can subscribe to here.

The Bond-Inspired AddArmor Audi RS7 Is the World’s Fastest Armored Car Watch a Tuned Audi RS3 Give the Dodge Challenger Demon a Run For Its Money Close The Audi RS3 is a fast car, but it’s not really a drag racing superstar. The aftermarket can change that. Audi and Volkswagen tuning specialist APR threw a slew of modifications at an RS3, and the result is a pint-sized sedan with 600 horsepower that can run the quarter-mile in less than 10 seconds.The APR RS3’s sub-10-second time could have it worrying the 840-hp Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, which Dodge claims is capable of a 9.65-second quarter mile.To put that in perspective, a stock RS3 has 400 hp and, according to Road & Track, runs the quarter-mile in 12.1 seconds. Audi asserts that the stock RS3 will do 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, but APR boasts that its tuned version will do the job in just 2.4 seconds.Not surprisingly, that level of performance required extensive modifications. The RS3’s 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-five got new turbo internals, an upgraded fuel system and intercooler, and a tuned ECU set up for E85 (85 percent ethanol, 15 percent gasoline). The rear seats were also removed to save weight (who needs practicality?), and the car has a straight-pipe exhaust. APR also fitted Hoosier drag radials to all four wheels of this all-wheel drive car. It’s kind of funny to see those tires on a German sports sedan.All of this adds up to a car that made eight quarter-mile passes of less than 10 seconds during a session at Montgomery Motorsport Park in Montgomery, Alabama. The RS3 was driven by its owner, Keith Brantley. Of the eight passes, the quickest was a 9.83 seconds at 144.39 mph. That’s just 0.18 off Dodge’s claimed quarter-mile time for the Demon.APR did not quote a cost for its tuned RS3, but considering the long list of modifications and the fact that a stock RS3 starts at $54,900, building your own probably won’t be cheap. You may end up spending close to the $84,995 base price of a Demon, although you’ll end up with a car that’s a bit more subtle. It really comes down to preference for Dodge or Audi, factory or aftermarket. Because whether it’s a muscle car with a factory warranty or a tuned sports sedan, speed usually doesn’t come cheap.
