Published

Theheute-

New converts Inaki Williams and Tariq Lamptey have earned their first call-ups as Ghana prepares to face Brazil and Nicaragua in friendlies later this month.

Otto Addo has also handed debut call-ups to three others; namely Mohammed Salisu and Stephan Ambrosius and Ransford-Yeboah Konigsdorffer.

Meanwhile, Hearts of Oak star Daniel Afriyie Barnieh is also included in the squad, with the usual suspects Andre Ayew, Jordan Ayew, Thomas Partey, Mohammed Kudus and Daniel Amartey also there.

There are, however, a few shocking omissions, as the in-form Joseph Paintsil has been left out despite scoring three goals and providing one assist for Genk this season.

The Black Stars will face Brazil on Friday, September 23, at Stade Oceane in Le Harve- France in their first international friendly.

Addo’s side will then take on Nicaragua at Estadio Francisco Artes Carrasco in Lorca, Spain on Tuesday, September 27, 2022.

These matches are expected to give the Ghana coach a good chance to assess his players for the final time before the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

The West Africans are paired in a very tricky group at the World Cup, where they’ll play against Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea in Group H.

Olise’s late strike gets Palace point against United

Published

on

Michael Olise has helped Crystal Palace get a point against Manchester United in their 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park Stadium on Wednesday night.

The midfielder’s late strike in extra-time, 91′, levelled the game against United, who had controlled the lead since the 43rd minute of the first half after Bruno Fernandes’ fine finish put the Red Devils ahead just before the break.

A relentless Olise scored from a free kick with a left-footed shot to the top right corner. The equalising goal saw United’s dream of replacing defending EPL champions City in the second place on the league table, fade away, as they remain third with 39 points, having played a game more than City.

Crystal Palace remains in 12th place with 23 points.

Atletico Madrid head coach speaks on leaving Atletico Madrid

Published

on

Atletico Madrid head coach, Diego Simeone, has insisted that nobody has personally told him to leave the club.

Rumours have persisted that Simeone, 52, could be set to end this 11-year stay at Atletico Madrid at the end of the season.

However, the Argentine has now stated that no one at the club has asked him to quit the La Liga giants.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Atletico Madrid’s Copa del Rey tie with Levante on Wednesday night, Simeone said when asked about reports suggesting he would leave the club at the end of the season: “No one has personally asked me to leave.”

However, having already been eliminated from UEFA Champions League and sitting 13 points behind leaders Barcelona in the La Liga table, the Copa del Rey is Atletico Madrid’s last realistic opportunity for a trophy this season.

It has been a disappointing campaign for Simeone’s side, as they sit fourth in the league.

Simeone added, “The boys are enthusiastic to reverse this situation that we have experienced since the break and prior to the World Cup. It’s been a regular to a bad season. For me, there is growth after the break, hopefully, we will continue in that line.”
