Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored an incredible goal for his 500th career strike

first_imgZlatan Ibrahimovic never stops surprising. If you thought he had gone to the US for a golden retirement, the Swede has another answer. Time and again the LA Galaxy player has come up with magic, but this is his best yet in the states. A swivel kick strike for his 500th career goal, against Toronto FC. El increíble movimiento de Ibrahimovic en el gol 500 de su carrera That is his 17th for the Californian side and the 500th of his career.  In the 43rd minute he reached a cross from Jonathan dos Santos in the box and did a karate kick movement to sent the ball flying in, a stunning and curious volley. Given Ibra was a black belt in taekwondo, perhaps we shouldn’t be so shocked.  IN SPORT.EScenter_img Ibra has netted 156 goals with PSG, 66 with Inter, 56 with Milan, 48 for Ajax, 29 at Manchester United, 26 at Juventus, 22 for Barça and 18 for Malmo, the club he grew up with. Plus 62 for Sweden. Upd. on 15/10/2018 at 21:20 CEST 16/09/2018last_img read more

Madrid open up five-point lead over Barca

first_img0Shares0000Karim Benzema put his side ahead shortly after the half-hour mark.PHOTO/Sky SportsMADRID, Spain, April 2 – Real Madrid moved five points clear of Barcelona at the top of La Liga despite a lacklustre performance as goals from Karim Benzema, Isco and Nacho secured a 3-0 win over Alaves on Sunday.Benzema volleyed home Dani Carvajal’s cutback for the opening goal just after the half hour mark. However, the European champions were grateful to Alaves’ wastefulness in front of goal after the break as Deyverson and Edgar Mendez passed up huge chances to equalise.Isco eventually made the game safe five minutes from time before Nacho rounded off the scoring moments later.Barcelona can close back to within two points with victory at Granada later on Sunday.“Playing every three days you can’t always play perfectly for 90 minutes,” said Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.“We were having problems, we weren’t playing well and then all of a sudden Cristiano (Ronaldo) gets the ball, passes it to Isco and he controls and scores.“That is what this team has. We know that at any moment we can hurt the opponent.”Zidane had handed a rest from the start to a host of his stars involved in international duty over the past week as captain Sergio Ramos, Marcelo and James Rodriguez were left out.Yet, Zidane’s plans were undone inside 10 minutes when Raphael Varane suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury and had to be replaced by Carvajal.“Rafa has damaged the same area as before, it isn’t as bad as three weeks ago and we hope it is nothing major.”Zidane did name his first-choice front three as Ronaldo and Gareth Bale flanked Benzema.All three fired off target from the edge of the box as Madrid started brightly, but they had to wait 31 minutes for the opener.Carvajal’s burst of pace took him to the by-line and he picked out the unmarked Benzema to smash into the far corner.Madrid’s rhythm was disrupted by the half-time whistle, though, as Alaves were the better side for large spells of the second-half.Deyverson headed over from point-blank range from Theo Hernandez’s cross before Mendez passed up the visitors’ best chance when he slotted wide when unmarked at the back post.Manu Garcia’s flicked header also then dipped just beyond Kiko Casilla’s far post as the Santiago Bernabeu crowd became restless.However, Isco settled their nerves when he rocketed Ronaldo’s through ball into the roof of the net from a narrow angle.And Nacho gave the scoreline an unjustified gloss when he tapped into an empty net after Fernando Pacheco made a brilliant save to tip Bale’s free-kick onto the bar.Earlier, an unsettling week for Sevilla ended with another disappointing result as they were held 0-0 at home by Sporting Gijon, leaving them fourth in La Liga on Sunday.In the wake of Sporting director Monchi’s decision to leave the club after 17 years, Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli cast doubt on his future before kick-off with Argentina reportedly interested in hiring him to salvage their floundering World Cup qualifying campaign.However, Sampaoli’s stock has fallen in recent weeks as Sevilla’s winless run stretched to five games in all competitions despite dominating for 95 minutes at the Sanchez Pizjuan.A draw is far more valuable for Sporting at the other end of the table as they move to within five points of safety in 18th.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

‘He’s a red card walking’! Former star warns Man United over latest transfer target

first_imgRay Wilkins has warned Manchester United: Sergio Ramos is a ‘red card walking’.The Real Madrid defender has been linked with a move to the Red Devils this summer, and could be included in David De Gea’s switch to the Bernabeu.But, while an admirer of the World Cup winner, former United midfielder Wilkins claims the 29-year-old may not be the right man for Louis van Gaal’s side.“Manchester United will want something back from Real Madrid if they let David De Gea leave,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show. “Sergio Ramos has been around the block and he knows the score, especially in Champions League.  “He’s a red card walking though. He gets het-up when things don’t quite go his way. Madrid have played him at full-back and as a holding midfield player, he’s very versatile.“It would be an interesting signing because the first year is always difficult when you come to the Premier League.”last_img read more

‘Atletico will be concerned, Foxes can absolutely win’ – Expert Eye on UCL clash

first_img“With humility and ambition, playing every game like it’s to win a league, everybody has very clear ideas in that team [Leicester]. And it is an honour for us to face them. Beyond the tactics, if we play with the same humility as against Bayern or Barcelona, we will have a chance. Leicester defend very well so concentration will be key to winning this match.”– Atletico Madrid captain Gabi 2 “They can win, absolutely. Atletico are a very durable side, have a lot of experience in the Champions League, have good players but will be concerned about Leicester’s strengths. What they’ve achieved is simply phenomenal and they have raised the bar. To win the Premier League shocked the world.”– Former Leicester winger Steve Guppy “Leicester are a tricky proposition for Atletico Madrid. I am sure Diego Simeone’s side would sooner be facing a team like Arsenal, an opponent they know more about. But I still feel this will be a step too far for Leicester. Atletico are experts at negotiating ties at this stage of the competition, having reached the Champions League final in two of the past three years, and they possess a world-class forward in Antoine Griezmann.”– Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown Atletico Madrid v Leicester City is LIVE on talkSPORT center_img Tonight, Leicester City play the biggest game in their history, and you can listen to all the action LIVE on talkSPORT!The Midlands football club have travelled to Spain to play Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.Craig Shakespeare guided the Foxes past Sevilla in the second leg of their round-of-16 tie, and has lost just one game since taking the reins following Claudio Ranieri’s sacking.But, playing against one of Europe’s best sides in the biggest competition on the continent is a challenge few of the Leicester players have ever experienced before.So how do the experts think Leicester will perform against Atleti?talkSPORT have gathered a selection of pundits and players’ views about the game, and you can see what everyone is saying below…ATLETICO MADRID V LEICESTER CITY IS LIVE ON TALKSPORT, KICK-OFF 19:45. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO FULL COMMENTARY“They’ve shown time and again over the last couple of seasons that they are capable of doing whatever they put their mind to, with some great performances to defy the odds. This year Leicester have put themselves up against the best in Europe, who play in this competition year in and year out, teams who know and understand the competition well. This is a tournament they’d really like to win so I think they could do it. It would be up there with winning the Premier League.”– Former Leicester striker Emile Heskey “If Atletico let their concentration slip, it will give Leicester a chance to pounce. Defenders Felipe Luis and Diego Godin are not the quickest — and Jamie Vardy could cash-in with his pace from the right side. Something has finally clicked with Vardy and he is back to being the deadly dangerman of last season. The great thing for Leicester is that they have nothing to lose. I hope the Foxes can score and they will create some chances but I think this is as far as they will go.”– World Cup winner and SunSport’s European football expert Lothar Matthaus “I’m not expecting a match with a big result for either team, given how much intensity and concentration both sides have. These will be two hard-fought games and the tie surely won’t be resolved until the return leg in their stadium.”– Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeonelast_img read more
