Pirlo included Messi and Xavi in his best ever side, but there was no room for Ronaldo

first_img He recently was tasked with naming the players he would include in his best ever XI, and chose two Barcelona players: Lionel Messi and Xavi Hernandez. Carlos Dominguez 20/01/2015 On Xavi, Pirlo explained: “He’s an intelligent midfield player. He doesn’t need to run all the time, but he controls games for Barcelona and Spain with his intelligence and passing ability.” Andrea Pirlo, now 35, continues to play a key role in the Juventus side. Cast aside by Milan in his early 30s, he’s continued to impress for both the Turin club and for Italy.  Here is the side chosen by Andrea Pirlo: Gianluigi Buffon; Phillip Lahm, Paolo Maldini, Fabio Cannavaro, Cafú; Paul Scholes, Gennaro Gattuso, Xavi Hernández; Kaká, Leo Messi, Filippo Inzaghi.

Sarri’s Chelsea far from ready to make title challenge

first_imgAdvertisement 6cgtvnNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vsp8b5Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Ege4o7( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 49xxjWould you ever consider trying this?😱q5n02Can your students do this? 🌚aucRoller skating! Powered by Firework Maurizio Sarri, the Italian coach handling the reigns at London based Chelsea touches points on why the Blues might not be ruthless enough this season, enough to challenge Premier League favorites Manchester City and Liverpool for the title, even though they stand unbeaten so far, in third place, alongside and behind the pair mentioned earlier.Advertisement Despite of the fact that Chelsea’s start this season is the bet ever under a debutant manager, the Italian is not convinced that his team could make the other championship favorites worry about them and their threat to the coveted championship. A dismal 0-0 draw with Everton at Stamford Bridge seems to cement this fact. The game capped a recent series of Chelsea performances that did not meet their initial impressive pact. A points gap also seems to grow between Chelsea and Liverpool & Manchester City.Following the drab draw, which also saw the hosts boast of 69% of the possession with only a measly 4 shots on target, the manager downplayed his team’s title hopes and chances. “In this moment the average of points of City and Liverpool is very high – I think about 100 points,” Sarri said. “It’s very difficult to stay close to these teams,” he went to add after recalling similar lackluster performances against Crystal Palace and BATE Borisov.Advertisement On the present rate of accumulation, Liverpool are heading for 95 points; while City look destined for 101, both of which will be a record. This is already a two-horse race: with Chelsea the most likely leaders in a pack of stragglers, likely to finish several furlongs behind.While November isn’t a time when titles are won, Sarri might just be right about his team.Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more

Saina Nehwal, PV Sindhu, Kidambi Srikanth get direct entry into National quarter-finals

first_imgThe Badminton Association of India (BAI) has decided that all players ranked in top 50 in the BWF World Rankings will get direct entry into quarter- finals of the upcoming National Championship, which for the first time will be Rs. 1 crore prize money event.This will effectively mean that country’s top shuttlers like World Championship silver medallist PV Sindhu (world No 2), bronze medallist Saina Nehwal (world No 12) will only be seen in action from the last eight stage.The same rule applies to the likes of Kidambi Srikanth (No 8), HS Prannoy (no 15), B Sai Praneeth (No 17), Sameer Verma (No 19) and Ajay Jayaram (No 20) in the men’s section.BAI president Himanta Biswa Sarma said: “It will be mandatory for all the top ranked players to participate in the event. Those players who are in the world top-50, would get a direct entry into quarterfinals. However it will be limited to a maximum of eight slots out of a total of 16.”Sarma also announced scholarships for the upcoming players, who are facing financial constraints.”Most of the times, good talented players drop out of the game due to financial constraints. Hence to support such players, we will be providing a scholarship of Rs 25,000- 50,000 per month for about 20 juniors to begin with, and take the number upto 100.”Sarma also said that BAI will be dealing with any kind of age-fraud in a tough manner.”We want to erase this over-age issue by conducting the tests well before the season so that no one should undergo the mental trauma during a tournament or a camp. If a player is found overage, we will put him/her in the next category as we think the parents are the culprits rather than the players themselves,” he concluded.advertisementIndian Squad for Asian Junior Championship:Boys U-17: Meirab Maisram, Dhruv Rawat, Iman Sonowal, Aakash Yadav, Amit Rathore, Sathish Kumar, Edwin Joy, Arvind V Suresh, Vishnuvardhan Goud, Ishan Bhatnagar, Khush Chug.Boys U-15: Sidhant Gupta, Ayush Raj Gupta, Punshiba Yengkhom, Jayant Rana, Varun Kapur, Vikas Yadav, Arshad Shaik, Shubham Patel, Sanjeev Rao, Khajamoinuddin Shaik.Girls U-17: Gayatri Gopichand, Akarshi Kashyap, Unnati Bisht, Malvika Bansode, Ritika Thakkar, Samiya Imad Farooqui, Varshini VS, Sahiti Suresh, Kavi Priya, Keyura Mopati.Girls U-15: Sneha Rajwan, Ashi Rawat, Kriti Bhardwaj, Treesa Jolly, Reza Mehreen, Tanya Hemant, Aditi Bhatt.last_img read more
