Spain defeated Ukraine, Fati set a record

first_imgThe Spanish national team defeated the eleven of Ukraine in a match of the League of Nations tournament.The match of group 4 of League “A” in the competition ended with a score of 4: 0 for the hosts. Veteran Sergio Ramos, who scored twice, Ferran Torres, and the young Ansu Fati were right in their favor. For him, the hit meant a record in the history of the country. Source: TwitterBarcelona’s talent made its debut for the Spanish national team in the match against Germany in the League of Nations. However, he is not the young footballer who played for the team. Fatty made his debut at 17 years and 308 days, while Angel Subieta made it at 17 years and 263 days. But as of today, Fati is the youngest goal scorer in Spain, as he scored a goal before he turned 18 years and 344 days old. That’s what Eraski was like when he scored a hat-trick in his debut against Switzerland in 1925.Otherwise, the clash today pitted the two teams from different positions in the standings, as after playing a match, the Ukrainians were leaders with a full point asset, and their rivals had only one point against their name. The point for La Furia was won against Germany. Ukraine reached all three points in its meeting with Switzerland.However, everything changed in the ranking of the group, as the Spaniards recorded an exceptional first half, in which they completely depersonalized their opponent. Source: TwitterIn the 3rd minute Fati was knocked down by Krivtsov in the penalty area. The referee pointed to the white dot, and behind the ball stood Ramos, who was ruthless, giving an early advantage to his team in the result.In the 29th minute, Olmo’s cross was intercepted by a header from Ramos, who disappointed the opponent’s goalkeeper for the second time. Source: TwitterIn the 32nd minute, Ansu Fati slipped on the left flank, lied to two of the defenders in front of him and with a sharp movement and subsequent measured shot shot in the left post of the door of Ukraine, after which the ball crossed the goal, sealing the record of the young football star.The final 4: 0 was formed by Torres, six minutes before the last signal in the match. Source: TwitterHere are the lineups of the two teams they started with tonight:SPAIN: De Gea, Ramos, Navas, Regilon, Torres, Alcantara, Merino, Olmo, Rodri, Moreno, FatiUKRAINE: Pyatov, Krivtsov, Zinchenko, Matvienko, Timchuk, Marlos, Karatin, Malinovsky, Mikhailichenko, Yarmolenko, YaremchukThe world champions started in the League of Nations with the success and goal of MbapeDeschamps’ threat was obeyedlast_img read more

Hard work pays dividends for Red Mountain Racer Sasha Zaitsoff

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsFor Sasha Zaitsoff, it’s the walk in the park he enjoys the most during his stay in Calgary.Of course that walk is not of friendly variety say down the sidewalk at Lakeside.This walk . . . well, let’s just say it’s more than a walk.This walk has this soon to be 21-year-old skier building core strength flipping tractor tires to power around those gates on the Men’s World Cup Ski Circuit.
After toiling the past few years on the Nor-Am circuit as a member of the National Prospect Team, the Red Mountain Racer star has his best shot ever at cracking one of the spots on the Canadian Men’s Team after being selected to the main squad.“No one really knew what was going on with the team,” Zaitsoff told The Nelson Daily last month after hearing the good news from coach Paul Krisofic, head coach of the Men’s National squad, during a telephone call.“I was just happy to that I was going to be on the team.”As Zaitsoff knows first hand, nothing is guaranteed in the sport of skiing. Results do the talking.But this is a major step being named to the National Team roster.And who knows what can happen if the six-foot, 200-pound Zaitsoff puts together a few solid results.“This is something I’ve been working toward for a long time,” Zaitsoff explained. “This is a big step for me.”“I know have access to a lot more resources on the National team, that will only help me get better,” he adds. “Like there’s a physiotherapist that travels with the team everywhere and funding for training.”Competing last season on the Prospect Team Zaitsoff turned heads of the Canadian coaching staff after scoring two, fourths in Super G at Whistler in March and Panorama near Invermere in December 2010.Add in a fifth and sixth-place finish in slalom in Val St. Come, Que., in January along with a handful of sixth-place finishes during the season and it was only a matter of time before Krisofic came calling.“(Skiing) is totally results based but anything is possible . . . and if you can imagine it, you can do it,” said the son of Peter and Elaine Zaitsoff of Balfour who has set Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics as a goal.“The harder you work for something the nicer it is when you achieve it and the more you appreciate it,” he adds.After taking a break after the 2010-11 season Zaitsoff joined his new teammates in Calgary for some extensive dry land training.Zaitsoff experienced a taste of what’s to come in January during a slalom race in Adelboden, Switzerland.However, the L.V. Rogers grad could not overcome the soft conditions and failed to qualify for the second run.”I felt pretty confident (but) I wasn’t too nervous,” Zaitsoff said on the Alpine B.C. website. “It was really neat to race against all the people you watch on TV all the time.”Zaitsoff expects to be winging his way to a summer camp, possible in Australia.If things go according to plan, it will be Zaitsoff people will be watching on the wide-screen television.And that will be no walk in the park.

Line-ups: Brescia-Fiorentina

first_img Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more. Visit: Mario Balotelli is benched against a Fiorentina side who line up with the same XI for the sixth straight game. Balotelli is in Brescia’s matchday squad against Fiorentina, but no chances are taken over his knee after it gave him trouble. Taking his place alongside Alfredo Donnarumma up top is Florian Aye, who has yet to score in six appearances for the new boys. However, Sandro Tonali – on a high from his Italy debut – starts as usual in central midfield, hoping to showcase more of his burgeoning potential. The Rondinelle take on a Fiorentina team looking completely rejuvenated after three straight wins. With that in mind, Vincenzo Montella sees no reason to make changes so Franck Ribery continues alongside Federico Chiesa in attack. Midfield talent Gaetano Castrovilli has also caught the eye in recent weeks and signed a new contract earlier in October. Kick-off has been moved back to 20:00 BST after the Viola’s team bus was held up by traffic. Brescia: Joronen; Sabelli, Cistana, Chancellor, Mateju; Bisoli, Tonali, Dessena; Romulo; Donnarumma, Aye Fiorentina: Dragowski; Milenkovic, Pezzella, Caceres; Lirola, Pulgar, Badelj, Castrovilli, Dalbert; Chiesa, Ribery Referee: Calvareselast_img read more
