Handanovic saves late as Inter battle Atalanta to draw

first_imgSamir Handanovic’s late penalty save rescued a point for Inter as the Serie A leaders laboured to a 1-1 draw against Atalanta at San Siro.Advertisement Martinez was fortunate not to concede a spot-kick when he impeded Rafael Toloi towards the end of the first half, while substitute Ruslan Malinovskiy rattled the upright after the restart.Robin Gosens poached a deserved equaliser 15 minutes from time and only Handanovic’s heroics from Luis Muriel’s 88th-minute effort from the spot denied Atalanta the victory.Champions Juventus will go two points ahead of Inter at the summit if they win at Roma on Sunday.The Nerazzurri’s lethal front two made their presence felt early when Martinez took Lukaku’s return pass away from Toloi and blasted under Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini.LAUTARO MARTINEZ GOAL INTER MILAN 1-0 FOLLOW FOR LIVE GOALS pic.twitter.com/yfFakZ4orU— HD GOALS LIVE (@HDGoalsLive) January 11, 2020In keeping with their vibrant attacking style, Atalanta sought a swift response – Mario Pasalic curling wide from the edge of the area before Duvan Zapata was unable to get enough power on his header to trouble Handanovic.More textbook forward play from Lukaku and Martinez in the 22nd minute ended with Jose Luis Palomino heading the Argentina striker’s chipped attempt off the line.Martinez almost blotted a fine half when he grabbed at Toloi’s ankle as the defender followed up a 41st-minute header saved by Handanovic, although referee Gianluca Rocchi inexplicably decided not to review the incident. Lautaro Martinez combined wonderfully with strike partner Romelu Lukaku to score his 15th goal of the season in the fourth minute but Antonio Conte’s side were then largely outplayed by a typically ambitious Atalanta.

Anti-terror bill could lead to wrongful arrests – Robredo

first_imgPresidential spokesman Harry Roque dismissed the criticism and said elements of the bill were patterned on those used in countries that had dealt effectively with extremism.“Hindi po tumitigil sa pag atake ang mga terorista sa sibilyan maski meron po tayong COVID-19 pandemic,” Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said in a virtual press conference in Davao City on Thursday.Roque also said that, even if the controversial measure was certified as urgent by President Duterte, he will still review it before signing it into law.“Bagamat it was certified as urgent, hindi naman automatic na pipirmahan ‘yan ni Presidente. That is still subject for final review by the President,” the Palace spokesperson said./PN MANILA – Vice President Leni Robredo has raised concern about the enactment of the controversial Anti-Terror Bill, warning of draconian and arbitrary provisions could lead to spate of wrongful arrests.Robredo issued the statement after the House of Representatives have passed on third and final reading on Wednesday the measure, which was adopted from the Senate version passed earlier this year.“Terorismo ba talaga ang tuon ng Anti-Terror Bill? O gusto lang nitong bigyan ng kapangyarihan ang estado para bansagang terorista kung sino man ang kanilang gusto?” Robredo said. The bill allows surveillance on suspected terrorists. It would remove the existing provision of the Human Security Law imposing P500,000 a day penalty on authorities for detention of any person acquitted of terrorism charges.“Nagdudulot ito ng pangamba na maaaring gamitin ang batas upang siilin ang karapatan nating magpahayag ng malayang saloobin, especially in the wrong hands,” Robredo added.Malacañang on the other hand defended President Duterte’s urgency to turn the measure into a law with the terrorist groups continuing their attack even if the country is under COVID-19 pandemic. “Terorismo ba talaga ang tuon ng Anti-Terror Bill?” asks Vice President Leni Robredo. She questioned the timing of the anti-terror bill, which President Rodrigo Duterte certified as urgent. LENI ROBREDO/FACEBOOK The Anti-Terror bill, which President Rodrigo Duterte certified as urgent, penalizes any person who incites others to commit terrorism by means of speeches, proclamations, writings, emblems, banners or other representations with a jail time of 12 years.“Sa kabilang banda, maraming probisyon ang nakatutok sa pagpapalawak ng kung sino ang puwedeng bansagang terorista, at sa pagbabawas ng mga checks and balances laban sa mga wrongful arrest,” Robredo added.last_img read more

Pelle at the double on debut

first_imgGraziano Pelle marked his Southampton debut with two goals as Ronald Koeman’s men eased past Belgian minnows Sporting Hasselt. The Italian striker opened the scoring in the fifth minute and added his second just past the half-hour as the Saints eased to a 6-0 victory.

Manchester United to monitor Gary Neville’s progress at Valencia

first_img But, overall Van Gaal has the full backing of the board. Nevertheless, United also concede they must start making plans for when Van Gaal’s contract expires in the summer of 2017. The United hierarchy is understood to be watching with interest to see how Neville performs in his first management role at Valencia. United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward sent the former United captain a good luck message after his shock appointment on Wednesday and the 40-year-old will come into consideration for the job at Old Trafford if he performs well in Spain. Ryan Giggs’ stock has risen because of his development as a coach since being appointed Van Gaal’s assistant and the former winger “triple-ticks” some of the requirements the board will set for the next United boss. Senior sources at Old Trafford also concede they will also discuss more experienced managers when considering who will replace Van Gaal in 18 months’ time. Press Association Sport understands the United board will be happy to sanction more spending by Van Gaal in the January transfer window, although as the Dutchman has conceded himself, it will be hard to land all the club’s top targets. United are seriously considering signing a left-back in January because of injuries to Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo, but Ashley Cole, who is out of favour at Roma, is not being considered, sources said. United are willing to pay big to bring in a marquee signing next summer – Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Neymar have all been mentioned as targets – but there is a also a recognition that signing such a big name will be difficult. One person who has no future at Old Trafford is Victor Valdes. The former Barcelona goalkeeper, who fell out with Van Gaal after he accused him of not wanting to play for the Under-21s last season, is free to leave in January. Although Van Gaal has guided United to within touching distance of the Premier League summit, he has come in for criticism for the team’s style of play this season. Neville’s former team-mate Paul Scholes branded United “boring” while there have been some dissenting voices in the crowd at Old Trafford too. Manchester United will keep a close eye on Gary Neville’s progress at Valencia as they start planning for life after Louis van Gaal’s departure in 2017. Press Association Annoyed at Van Gaal’s possession-based style of play, some supporters have started yelling “attack, attack, attack” at the team and they have also booed them off on a few occasions. But, crucially for Van Gaal, he is understood to retain the full backing of the United board, with those above him expecting him to see out the remaining 18 months of his contract. The boardroom belief is that there is no widespread dissatisfaction with Van Gaal among United fans. Senior figures at Old Trafford have dismissed reports there is disharmony between Van Gaal and his players and they also acknowledge the Dutchman is getting results. Going into this weekend’s round of fixtures, United are one point behind leaders Manchester City. At this stage last season, Van Gaal’s team had lost three times and were 11 points behind table toppers Chelsea. Naturally, there is disappointment among senior figures about United’s precarious position in the Champions League. They believed United were handed the easiest group and should have qualified top with a match to spare, but the only way Van Gaal’s men can guarantee their progression to the last 16 is if they beat Wolfsburg away in their final match on Tuesday. last_img read more
