Chelsea cruised to a 2-0 victory over Middlesbrough in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Saturday, ending the Championship side’s remarkable run in the competition.

Middlesbrough beat Manchester United on penalties in the fourth round and scored a winner in extra time to beat Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round, but Chris Wilder’s side came unstuck against Chelsea on Saturday.

Romelu Lukaku tapped into an empty net in the 15th minute to help Chelsea take an early lead before Hakim Ziyech doubled their advantage with a superb finish from the edge of the penalty area.

Middlesbrough received raucous support inside the Riverside Stadium but never really seemed able to trouble the visitors who were still in control.

Chelsea, which is the subject of several offers to buy the club, operates under a special license from the British government after Russian owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Only a few hundred Chelsea fans were inside the stadium – a consequence of restrictions on ticket sales – but they could at least celebrate their side reaching the semi-finals for the fifth time in six seasons.

Since Abramovich announced he was putting the European champions up for sale on March 2 after 19 trophy-laden years, business has been business as usual on the pitch.

They have won all six matches since, with the latest victory coming the day after a deadline for offers to buy the club.

Despite the distractions, manager Thomas Tuchel remained focused on winning games, and his players’ performance on Saturday was clinical.

“We were very focused and very serious. We showed quality in the decisive moments,” said the German.

“The effort was huge and we never let them get a foot in the door after the first two goals. It was a deserved win.”

“Nothing we can do will change the situation and we accept that it’s not in our hands, but what is in our hands is leading by example and staying focused.”

Chelsea had drawn criticism midweek for demanding the game be played without fans to ensure “sporting integrity” given they could not sell tickets.

They later withdrew that request and the Riverside swung before kickoff.

But when Mount was cleared forward down the left and then kicked in a slide rule cross to allow Lukaku to tap home, the odds still looked stacked against Middlesbrough.

When Ziyech’s shot then flew past Middlesbrough goalkeeper Joe Lumley, the hosts had a mountain to climb.

Chelsea could have added to their lead with Lukaku denied by a goal clearance and Lumley doing well to deny Timo Werner’s late effort, while the hosts rarely had a chance.

It was Middlesbrough’s first home defeat in 10 games in all competitions, and their focus will now shift back to trying to make the promotion play-offs.

For Chelsea, they are still chasing silverware on two fronts after reaching the Champions League quarter-finals in midweek.

“We really have that winning mentality within the group. Any competition, any game, we want to win and we want that to continue,” Mount said. “It’s been a tough couple of weeks, but for us as a team we’re just focused and ready to play.”

Defender Cesar Azpilicueta scored a 71st-minute winner as he slotted home a Mason Mount back-post cross, helping Thomas Tuchel’s side to a 4-1 aggregate win.

Chelsea played the draw amid the potential sale of the club. UEFA had to seek clarification from the European Union on whether the game could go ahead after following the United Kingdom in sanctioning Abramovich on Tuesday.

Lille had made the best start to the match.

Jocelyn Gouvennec’s side put Chelsea on the back foot as Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho and N’Golo Kante struggled to take control of the midfield.

Lille were rewarded in the 38th minute with a penalty following a VAR review after a handball from Jorginho into the box.

Yilmaz, 36, the third-oldest goalscorer in the Champions League Round of 16 after Paolo Maldini and Ryan Giggs, buried the kick into the top corner to give the hosts a deserved lead and high hopes of an upset after losing the first leg 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Lille, who had not conceded in their three Ligue 1 appearances since the first leg, however let their guard down and Chelsea punished them with their first shot on target as Pulisic collected a fine through ball from Jorginho for score with a low. shot three minutes into first-half stoppage time.

The goal meant Pulisic tied Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez for the most Champions League goals by a CONCACAF international.

Although they were plagued by injuries which forced Sven Botman and Zeki Celik off the pitch, Lille applied more pressure after the break and Yilmaz wasted two clear chances.

Chelsea were far more ruthless and after 71 minutes Mount’s cross bounced off Azpilicueta’s knee in the top corner to end Lille’s hopes of reaching the quarter-finals.

‘Complete football player’ – Arsene Wenger hails Benzema’s ‘supreme intelligence’ after Real Madrid hat-trick against PSG https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/complete-football-player-arsene-wenger-hails-benzemas-supreme-intelligence-after-real-madrid-hat-trick-against-psg/ Thu, 10 Mar 2022 08:51:56 +0000 https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/complete-football-player-arsene-wenger-hails-benzemas-supreme-intelligence-after-real-madrid-hat-trick-against-psg/ Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has praised Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema after his hat-trick against Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has praised Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema after his hat-trick against Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid were expected to beat PSG in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 on Wednesday night. Trailing 1-0 from the first leg, Los Blancos were looking for an early goal to calm their nerves.

Unfortunately for the hosts, things didn’t go to plan as they ended up conceding just before half-time through PSG’s first leg hero Kylian Mbappe.

Karim Benzema’s hat-trick takes him to 67 Champions League goals for Real Madrid. He is the oldest player to score a hat trick in a Champions League game. This is only the 4th time #Real Madrid overcame a first-leg deficit for the first time since 2015-16.#UCL https://t.co/IGzfvZGHil

Just after the hour mark, Los Blancos skipper Karim Benzema took charge and scored a 17-minute hat-trick. His hat-trick helped Real Madrid win 3-1 on the night (3-2 on aggregate), securing their passage to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Wenger was deeply impressed with the 34-year-old’s performance and called his compatriot a “complete football player” with “supreme intelligence”. Speaking on BeIN Sport (via Mirror), the Frenchman said:

“For me, he is the complete football player – he has absolutely everything. What I love about Benzema is that he is a team player and everything he does looks simple. You always think you could do what he does – he’s supreme intelligence.

Wenger remarked that the Madrid striker had found a ‘new dimension’ in his game since Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus in the summer of 2018.

The 72-year-old believes the France international has improved year on year, adding:

“He has taken on a new dimension since Ronaldo left. He took on more responsibilities and he grew. I must say that I admire the year 1987 – Benzema is 87, just like Suarez, Messi and Cavani. Benzema seems to be improving every year. I’m a big fan of his game.”

Wednesday’s scintillating Champions League hat-trick against PSG took Benzema’s Real Madrid goal tally to 309. Surpassing club legend Alfredo Di Stefano (308), the Frenchman is Los Blancos’ third-highest goalscorer in the story.

Former teammates Cristiano Ronaldo (451) and Raul (323) are the only two players ahead of the France international.


The tie win over PSG marks the first time Real Madrid have overcome the first-leg deficit since 2015-16

Last night’s victory was historic for the men in white. Not only did this make Karim Benzema the club’s third-highest goalscorer in history, but it was also the first time they overturned a Champions League first-leg deficit since the 2015-16 season.

Los Blancos then suffered a 2-0 defeat in the first leg of their quarter-final against Wolfsburg. Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stunning hat-trick in the second leg to secure a 3-2 aggregate win for Madrid.

Los Blancos are famous for winning the Champions League in the 2015-16 season, giving then-coach Zinedine Zidane his first major success as a manager.

Karim Benzema scored a memorable hat-trick as Real Madrid staged a stunning comeback to eliminate Paris Saint-Germain from the Champions League.

Kylian Mbappe’s first-half strike put PSG in control with a 2-0 aggregate lead, but Benzema netted three after the break as Madrid cruised to a 3-2 victory.

The result continues PSG’s Champions League heartbreak as they suffered another collapse from a winning position after losing to Barcelona and Manchester United in recent years.

Madrid join Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the competition.

“We wanted to see this stadium as the fans were today, we needed them, the victory is for them; it was very difficult, we pushed until the end and we deserved to pass”, said said Benzema after the game.

“We lost the first leg, we were down 1-0 at half-time, it was a big effort, the fans pushed us to give everything until the end. These are Champions League matches, c “It’s difficult. We know that PSG likes We started well, we had chances, we didn’t take them and they scored on the counterattack, but in the second half we played our game.

“When we press, we can beat any team, it’s about pressing as a team, everyone in their place and with the fans. Every game is a final for us, in the league and in the Champions League. Today today, Real Madrid is alive.”

Both teams started well but it was PSG who took advantage of the first chances and Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois had to deny Mbappe twice.

After 25 minutes, Gianluigi Donnarumma produced a superb fingertip save from Benzema’s long-range effort.

Less than 10 minutes later, Mbappe thought he had given the visitors the lead on the evening but his goal was disallowed with Nuno Mendes flagged for offside.

Madrid couldn’t stop Mbappe from opening the scoring five minutes later when he beat the offside trap and flicked the ball past Courtois.

Shortly after the break, Mbappe thought he had scored again but his stunning finish was ruled out for offside again.

Just after the hour mark, Benzema capitalized on Donnarumma’s poor error to make it 1-1 on the night.

Vinicius Junior had a great chance to level the scores on aggregate 10 minutes later but fired his shot from close range over the bar.

Benzema made no mistake minutes later to make it 2-2 and seconds later he scored a sensational hat-trick when Madrid punished PSG’s negligence from the kick-off.

The France international scored his 309th goal for Madrid in all competitions, overtaking Alfredo Di Stefano for the third-most in club history.

Despite reaching the semi-finals last season and the 2020 final, PSG are still looking to win the Champions League for the first time in their history.

“It’s a shame that in 2022 there is a goal like this, it was a clear foul by Benzema on the goalkeeper,” Mauricio Pochettino told a press conference. “After such an injustice, the team had a nervous breakdown. It’s a shame.”

Speaking to Movistar after the game, Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti said: “It’s special especially because we won after a difficult game. It got complicated after Mbappe’s goal. We suffered a lot to recover. the ball. We pressed them, we’ve practiced that in training, then we scored the first goal and the game totally changed, the fans started to believe it more and more, it was spectacular , we are obviously very happy.

“We started well, with energy, then little by little we found it more difficult to press, they use the ball very well, they have quality players, we suffered but it was normal. We took risks, sometimes we left Mbappé one by one and that can complicate your life. We needed the goal. After that, the atmosphere in the stadium changed completely. The last half hour was spectacular.”

“I said you rotate when the team is tired. I took [Toni] Kroos off because he was tired but he contributed. Rodrygo and [Eduardo] Camavinga was cooler, they gave us a boost.”

SINGAPORE — For years, women’s football club Still Aerion struggled with the problem of not having a regular training ground.

This meant that players traveled anywhere from Boon Lay to Tampines for training – depending on which pitches they could book through Sport Singapore’s (SportSG) dual-use scheme.

But this uncertainty about their place of training has also impacted the attendance of players, who are students and working professionals.

But the club have enjoyed more stability in recent months and have been training at the Bukit Gombak stadium, thanks to support from national agency SportSG, which runs the Unleash The Roar! project with the Football Association of Singapore (FAS).

President Pamela Kong hopes things will change for the better as FAS announced at the Women’s Football Conference 2022 in Singapore on Saturday March 5 its plans to introduce a club licensing system for women’s amateur clubs.

She said: “It will be a long journey. Ideally we will work towards a professional league in Singapore and it’s a small step towards that big goal, but it’s a good first step to take.”

The club license was first introduced in the FAS in 2011 as a list of basic criteria for S-League clubs to participate in Asian Football Confederation (AFC) club competitions such as the AFC Champions League and AFC Cup.

The move to introduce a club licensing system for women’s teams is part of FAS’ plans to lift the local women’s league.

The pilot project will begin with a two-year education phase to help clubs meet the criteria required to obtain a licence, before the system is implemented from 2024.

The criteria that clubs must meet to be licensed fall into five main categories: sporting, infrastructure, legal, administrative and personnel, and financial.

The Straits Times understands that seven Women’s Premier League clubs will be involved in the pilot.

Kong added that she hopes the introduction of a club licensing system will also bring stability to the league which often sees clubs come and go.

Culture, Community and Youth Minister Edwin Tong, who was guest of honor at the event, also announced that women’s football would be included in the School Football Academy program ( SFA), which aims to become a pipeline to produce young players with good technique. capacity.

It was announced last year that 10 schools would participate in an SFA pilot program starting in 2022 and these institutions would eventually participate in a youth league that would run throughout the year.

Each SFA will have a staff of at least four to five full-time coaches, including specialist goalkeeping, strength and conditioning coaches, and performance analysts.

Atletico had superb comeback wins at home to Valencia and Getafe last month and thought they had equalized when Angel Correa scored with a spectacular stoppage-time kick.

But the goal was ruled out for a foul by Jose Gimenez on Martin Caceres and Correa was shown a yellow card for his angry reaction to the decision.

Levante’s Mickael Malsa nearly scored a second for the visitors with a spectacular effort near the halfway line that hit the crossbar.

Atletico then came within inches of snatching a last-minute leveler when goalkeeper Jan Oblak came in to deny a free-kick and headed just wide of the far post.

Diego Simeone’s side missed the chance to overtake Barcelona in fourth place and found themselves fifth in the standings with 39 points. Levante remained bottom of the table but dropped to 14 points, 10 after escaping the relegation zone.

In a tight affair, Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring in the second half but the Brazilian side caught them thanks to a Raphael Veiga penalty.

However, Havertz – who also netted the winning goal in last season’s Champions League final – stepped up with a late penalty as Thomas Tuchel claimed his third trophy since taking charge of Chelsea in January 2021.

Chelsea have now won every major club trophy since Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich took over in 2003.

“It never stops. We want to keep winning trophies,” Tuchel said in a pitchside interview before his side received their medals from FIFA President Gianni Infantino.

“At the end of the day, if you score late, you need luck to do it, but we were relentless and we kept trying.”

Both teams failed to create many clear chances in the first half and Chelsea suffered a blow when Mason Mount was sent off after 29 minutes through injury.

The game came to life after 54 minutes when Callum Hudson-Odoi produced a fine cross which was converted from Lukaku with a clinical header.

However, Palmeiras was awarded a penalty 10 minutes later after VAR ruled Thiago Silva for handling the ball from a corner.

Veiga stepped up and converted the kick to equalize for the Brazilians as the game ended in extra time.

With the game looking set for a penalty shootout, Chelsea were awarded a penalty after VAR ruled that Luan Garcia had blocked Cesar Azpilicueta’s strike with his hand.

Havertz converted the penalty with ease and Palmeiras’ misery was complete when Luan was sent off in stoppage time for a desperate tackle on the German striker.

Meanwhile, Egyptian side Al Ahly won the third-place playoff, beating Al Hilal 4-0.

Having not kicked a ball in competition for 18 days, the match against Wolves at Molineux was always going to be painful for Arsenal, even without considering the quality of the opposition.

The Premier League’s second-best defense this season had given most teams they faced a tough 90 minutes, one based on a solid defensive structure that conceded few chances and dominated aerial duels.

Taking the lead after 25 minutes from a set-piece put Arsenal on the path to what would have been a huge win in the context of the season – beating a European rival and enjoying their Champions League chasing their own slip-ups. their opponents.

Managing to do so after being down to ten men for the final 25 minutes added to the elation, which was evident throughout the squad and the roving support who enjoyed the glory of the three-pointer at full whistle. time.

Everyone still hates Arsenal and we still love them after Ruben Neves led the critical charge following celebrations in the 1-0 win over Wolves

Nothing wrong with that, is there? In fact, it would have been strange if there hadn’t been scenes of this nature.

Ruben Neves, however, saw things differently.

“We saw the way they celebrated the win and it shows the level we are,” he told the BBC. “I haven’t seen Arsenal celebrate like this in the last 10 years – it was like they won the league.”

Unaware of the ignorance of his claim – Arsenal have won four FA Cups in the “last ten years” – the saltiness of his anger was particularly pleasing. All her teenage moans made victory sweeter.

What was extremely bizarre was how much sentiment was split between supporters of rival teams. Arsenal have been called out for seeing their standards plummet, like an away win at a top team as you aim for a place in the Premier League’s top four after seeing the game with ten men is, for a any reason, an unacceptable reaction.

It is an exceptional load of absurdities. Truly remarkable, and it only adds to the growing hatred that everyone has accumulated for Arsenal over this season. Much like the vicious and unwarranted outpouring of disgust at the Gunners for having their legitimate request to postpone the North London Derby granted – the first of its kind for the club and one that literally prompted the FA to change the rules – the growing noise around Arsenal is something to bask in.

If the players and fans are so bitter at the idea of ​​Arsenal celebrating a victory in difficult circumstances, it means, once again, that the team is on the right track. This bewildering dissatisfaction is born out of frustration with success. Neves was annoyed as they lost ground in the table and everyone else who jumped on the bandwagon did the same.

Such outrage was not widespread when Man City went ballistic after snatching victory from Arsenal when they or they had a male edge, because again, the heap starts when it comes to the red and white ones.

While on this occasion at least there were journalists and other onlookers who wondered about the response to Arsenal’s reactions, it is still reassuring to know that everyone outside the North London bubble is angry for all the right reasons.

May it (continue) to continue for a long time.

“I had a number of offers on the table, but none matched the scale of this club, with European football and the ability to play in front of 50,000 fans every two weeks.

“I’ve had fantastic conversations with the manager and Ross Wilson, and I’m really looking forward to working with them and meeting the supporters.”

Manager, Giovanni van Bronckhorst, continued: “I am absolutely delighted that we have been able to add a player of Aaron’s quality, experience and leadership to our team.

“I can’t wait to welcome Aaron to the training center tomorrow.”

Sporting Director, Ross Wilson, added: “It’s a really exciting signing for Rangers and Aaron. As soon as I was informed of the opportunity we had to bring Aaron to Rangers about a week ago, we worked very hard to obtain his signature.

“Not only is Aaron a world-class player who will play a key role in our team, but his level of ability and professional standards will be an inspiration to our current players.

“We see Aaron as a leader, a quality player and a wonderful character to bring to our club. I have admired his career since emerging at Cardiff and through Arsenal, Juventus and with Wales. We all look forward to working closely with him.

“I am grateful to Juventus for their professional approach and discretion. Both Juventus and Aaron have received many great offers from elsewhere and we are delighted that he has chosen Rangers.

“Any deal we reach must respect our normal salary model and Aaron’s desire to play here has enabled us to achieve this with the cooperation of Juventus.”
