Liverpool let slip three-goal lead before Salah hits winner

first_imgLIVERPOOL held off a stunning fightback by Red Bull Salzburg to get their Champions League defence up and running with victory in an incredible game at Anfield.The visitors trailed 3-0 in the first half but battled back to 3-3 before Mohamed Salah grabbed the winner midway the second half.Liverpool lost their Group E opener to Napoli last month but got off to the ideal start in this game when former Salzburg player Sadio Mane struck inside 10 minutes, sweeping home at the near post.Andrew Robertson turned in a cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold before Salah poked a third under keeper Cican Stanokovic.It seemed as though the game was over as a contest 10 minutes before halftime.But Salzburg, like Liverpool, have scored goals for fun this season – 40 in nine league games – and began their fightback when Hwang Hee-chan got the better of Virgil van Dijk before scoring with a powerful strike.The visitors reduced the deficit further when Takumi Minamino volleyed in and the away fans erupted when substitute Erling Braut Haaland tapped in an equaliser – his 18th goal of the season.Salah finally got Liverpool over the line when he latched on to Roberto Firmino’s header and scored with a fierce strike.

USC continues preparing for Fresno State

first_imgAs the countdown to USC’s first football game continues, the Trojans participated in a full-pad practice on Tuesday morning.Repeat feat · Redshirt junior quarterback Cody Kessler would be hard-pressed to top his last performance against Fresno State. In last year’s Las Vegas Bowl, he passed for a career-high 345 yards and four touchdowns. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanUSC head coach Steve Sarkisian stressed the importance of focus as they prepare for the Trojans’ Saturday home opener against the Fresno State Bulldogs. The team’s ability to maintain focus is already being tested as allegations swirl regarding the events involving Josh Shaw on Saturday night.First time for everythingSarkisian was animated after practice and was noticeably excited about leading the Trojans on Saturday against Fresno State in his first game as USC’s head coach.The Southern California native reminisced about watching the 1984 Olympic Games and many Raider games at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, as well as his time there as an assistant at USC.“I joked with the players the other day during the mock game,” Sarkisian said. “Cody [Kessler], Hayes [Pullard] and I were kind of out on the field earlier, throwing it around and I said, ‘I don’t know who’s gonna be more excited, you guys or me the first time we come down.’”Know yourself, know your enemyAs game day creeps ever closer for the Trojans, Sarkisian seemed pleased with his team’s Tuesday morning practice.“I thought they were focused, competitive,” Sarkisian said. “I though Cody was extremely sharp throwing the ball and I think we’re in a good place.”Sarkisian also noted that he is trying to make his team focus more on itself and its own strengths and weaknesses than on its opponent’s game.The Bulldogs’ strengths might be tough to pinpoint anyway since losing their star quarterback Derek Carr to the NFL. Carr led the nation in passing yards (5,083) and touchdowns (50) in 2013 and was selected in the second round of the NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders.Fresno State head coach Tim DeRuyter has yet to name a starting quarterback for Saturday’s game. Brian Burrell and Brandon Connette have been locked in competition since Connette transferred from Duke, and both are slated to appear in Saturday’s game.“They’re both good athletes, they’re both good runners and can throw it,” Sarkisian said. “I’m sure we’ll have a couple wrinkles for each guy.”Freshman phenomAjene Harris, a true freshman wide receiver out of Crenshaw High School, displayed more moxie than might have been expected at such a young age.His dedication and work ethic landed him a starting spot as the team’s third starting wide receiver.“The work that I put in paid off, but I’m not really settling on that,” Harris said. “I’m ready to work every day.”last_img read more

FC Basel announce new esports player signings

first_imgYou can watch the stream of FC Basel 1893 Esports’ announcement here but note it actually starts at 9m35 and it’s in German. Esports Insider says: Since FC Basel already had a FIFA player on their books, many (us included) would have hoped that the club had decided to enter new players in a different title and scene. Alas, it wasn’t to be but we can continue to hope that if these two perform well, then the club’s decision makers will explore esports in more depth. FC Basel 1893 Esports have announced two new players have joined its line up. These are both FIFA esports pros which brings the club’s total to three.Florian ‘CodyDerFinisher’ Müller and Tim ‘The StrxngeR’ Katnawatos are the two latest additions, and they join Luca ‘LUBO’ Boller at the Swiss side. Müller has been signed with Germany based STARK Esports agency since May 2017 and the agency revealed that they turned down offers from other clubs in order for the 18 year old to join Basel. Müller has some pedigree in the game already; he won the FIFA Interactive World Cup Regional Finals and he’s qualified for the FIWC in the Xbox division.Katnawatos too is an FIWC 2017 finalist.Last week, prominent industry figure Paul ‘Redeye’ Chaloner threw out a query to Twitter asking for help in formulating a list of all the current sports clubs involved. The finalised list came to just over 150 clubs, but there is that the true figure is higher due to Chaloner’s understandable decision to only include those he was able to track down a confirmational public source.last_img read more
