  • UK start time, LIVE talkSPORT coverage, undercard, PPV price and how to follow – 'Gypsy King' to defend world title at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after Dillian Whyte win
  • [ad_1]

    Tyson Fury will return to the ring next weekend as he defends his WBC heavyweight title against old rival Derek Chisora at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

    Following his incredible trilogy with Deontay Wilder, Fury retained his world crown by destroying Dillian Whyte at Wembley in April.

    Fury will face Chisora on December 3, live on talkSPORT

    The talk of elite boxing has since been dominated by the Gypsy King’s claims of retiring and then calling out Anthony Joshua.

    Fury vs Joshua was the fight all fans wanted to see but, despite lengthy negotiations and contracts sent, it never got finalised.

    Fury has since moved on and will now meet Chisora for a third time in early December.

    The British rivals first met in July 2011 as Fury claimed a decision win before he then forced Chisora to stop in their rematch in November 2014.

    Now, several years on, they will also complete their trilogy after Del Boy claimed a fine win over Kubrat Pulev this summer despite nearing the age of 40.

    Fury vs Chisora: Date and start time

    This 12-round heavyweight title clash is taking place on Saturday, December 3.

    It will be held at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.

    Start times and ringwalks will be confirmed closer to the night but fans can expect the undercard to get underway from 5pm with the main event at around 10pm.

    Fury vs Chisora: talkSPORT coverage

    talkSPORT will broadcast the fight exclusively live and free to air.

    Our expert team will be made of presenters Adam Catterall and Gareth A Davies, commentator Andy Clarke, and former super-bantamweight champion Spencer Oliver.

    Fury vs Chisora: What has been said?

    Fury’s UK co-promoter Frank Warren: “I am thrilled to be delivering a Tyson Fury world title defence in front of the British fans in London.

    “Tyson clearly conquered America across his trilogy with Deontay Wilder and there is also huge demand to stage his fights from sites across the world.

    “Tyson wanted to fight in his home country again this year following his special night at Wembley Stadium in April.

    “This brings us to the magnificent Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and a match against an old rival in Derek Chisora.

    “Derek, also a big favourite with British fans, has reinvented himself in recent years and Tyson has long stated his wish to fight him for a third time.

    “Tyson can’t afford any slip-up in this fight as he has the much-publicised undisputed match-up with Oleksandr Usyk in the New Year which we’re really looking forward to.

    Fury and Usyk is the fight to make in the heavyweight division

    Fury’s US co-promoter Bob Arum added: “Whenever Tyson Fury fights, it is a major event, and I expect him to once again put on a spectacular show for the fans.

    “There are talks about what’s next for Tyson, but the first order of business is a battle against an extraordinarily tough fighter in Derek Chisora.”

    “If I get through this guy, Chisora – God willing – then I’ll fight whoever’s next after that,” Fury told BT Sport.

    “If Usyk can be made, if they actually want the fight then we’ll do that fight next, provided I win and everything goes right.

    “You can’t count your chickens before they hatch, but that’s the fight I would like next.”

  • Photos: Messi magic guides relieved Argentina past Mexico | In Pictures News
  • [ad_1]

    Strikes by Lionel Messi and Enzo Fernandez earned Argentina a 2-0 win over Mexico in a pulsating atmosphere at Lusail Stadium on Saturday and got the South American team’s World Cup campaign up and running.

    Stunned 2-1 by Saudi Arabia in their opening Group C match, Argentina knew defeat would send them out of the tournament, but they started poorly, struggling to cope with Mexico’s high press as Messi was denied time and space to operate.

    Argentina’s captain was anonymous in the first half, and his sole contribution of note was a header that ballooned over the bar as his team failed to carve out a good chance.

    But picked out by Angel Di Maria just outside the Mexico box in the 64th minute, Messi drove a low shot through a crowd of defenders into the corner. Fernandez followed it up in the 87th minute with a wonderful curling effort to secure the win.

    The victory took Argentina up to second place on three points, one point behind leaders Poland, who they will play in their last group match.

  • Argentina have finally arrived at WC with win over Mexico

    LUSAIL, Qatar -- Lionel Messi said Argentina have finally arrived at the World Cup after his goal helped beat Mexico 2-0 at Lusail Stadium.

    Shocked by Saudi Arabia in their opening game in Group C, Argentina bounced back to put themselves in position to qualify ahead of their final game against Poland on Wednesday.

    - Stream on ESPN+: LaLiga, Bundesliga, more (U.S.)

    Defeat to Mexico would have meant an early exit in Qatar.

    But Messi, who scored the first goal with a wonderful touch and finish in the second half, said their campaign is finally underway.

    "We knew that today we had to win, that another World Cup started for us and we knew what to do," he said. "We cannot let our guard down now and we have all finals left.

    "We knew that the response from our fans would be like this and I think we complied."

    Messi scored his second of the tournament to finally break the deadlock against a stubborn Mexico who started well at Lusail Stadium.

    Substitute Enzo Fernandez got a late second to make the result safe.

    But afterwards Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni admitted it was Messi who had changed the course of the game.

    "He defined the match because that is what he knows how to do," Scaloni said. "He has a group behind him who support him. The match changed because we have great players and also we have Leo."

    After the game, Messi was also forced to play down concerns over an injury.

    There was speculation ahead of the World Cup that he was suffering from an ankle problem and admitted he twisted it during the defeat to Saudi Arabia.

    He was also on the end of some heavy challenges against Mexico but was able to finish the game.

    "I don't know why there were so many things said about it," added Messi. "The other day everyone was talking about my ankle and I did not have anything wrong with it. But then in the last minute [against Saudi Arabia], I rolled it over.

    "I said all week that I didn't have anything wrong with it and then in the final minute I twisted it. But it is fine. "I was able to train normally afterward right along with the team and I did not train alone at any moment."

    With his goal, Messi drew level with Diego Maradona's number of World Cup goals and appearances.

    The 35-year-old captain has scored two of Argentina's three goals here in Qatar. Messi is Argentina's all-time top scorer, led them to Copa America glory last year, and has won the Ballon d'Or a record seven times.

  • World Cup 2022: Luke Shaw reveals England’s extra motivation to beat Wales
  • [ad_1]

    Luke Shaw believes the way Wales celebrated England’s elimination from Euro 2016 will add extra motivation to their World Cup clash – but insists Gareth Southgate’s side are too respectful to follow suit.

    The neighbouring nations meet at Ahmed bin Ali Stadium on Tuesday in their final Group B game.

    While England are favourites to progress as group winners despite an uninspiring goalless draw against the United States on Friday which left some supporters jeering at full-time, Wales are on the cusp of elimination.

    Robert Page’s side also drew with the USA but were deservedly beaten by Iran in their second game.

    They now need a minor miracle to get out of the group but could yet advance – and send England home – with a big win.

    The sides met in the group stages in France six years ago as Daniel Sturridge scored an injury-time winner for England, who were then embarrassingly dumped out by Iceland as Wales progressed through to the semi-finals.

    Footage emerged of the Wales players celebrating jubilantly as England crashed out and Shaw feels that could add spice to Tuesday’s meeting.

    “I think you could say that,” he said when asked if the Wales reaction would provide extra motivation. “But our motivation in itself has to be at its highest level. We are at the World Cup. We have great aims for what we want to achieve.

    “We have to have the maximum motivation at every game. I don’t think there’s any more motivation than what we have already.

    “We have to have 100 per cent motivation in every training session and every game that we have.”

    Shaw, 27, has started both of England’s games in Qatar and scored in the Euro 2020 final defeat to Italy last summer.

    But the Manchester United left-back missed Euro 2016 while recovering from a broken leg – although he was still aware of the Wales video doing the rounds.

    “Of course, it wasn’t nice,” he said. “I don’t want to dwell too much on to that. I want to focus on what we do on the pitch. We can say things in interviews and I’d rather do our talking on the pitch, rather than off it.”

    Pressed on the matter, Shaw suggested the Wales reaction had been disrespectful when asked if England would celebrate in the same manner, adding: “I think we are a respectful group.

    “We do things in the right way. That’s the example Gareth wants to set. We are fully behind that. We are fully respectful.

    “I think their motivation is going to be extremely high. They are going to give everything to win.

    “It’s not an easy game. But we need to focus on what we do. The talent we have, the depth we have, we need to focus on ourselves. If we prepare properly, we should win the game.”

  • 13 Football Manager legends who were useless in real life
  • [ad_1]

    Football Manager often blurs the lines between computer gaming and reality, with the game being cited in over thirty divorce cases, but also being used by professionals within football to scout talent. Not all that talent, however, is as good in real life as in the game.

    Whilst the vast database of players can take credit for spotting wonderkids before the world’s biggest clubs did, there have been some shockers when it comes to predicting who will develop into the next generation of world superstars.

    Some players on the game develop into Ballon d’Or winners and world-class superstars but go on to be your standard mid-table journeymen in the real world.

    Whilst this doesn’t mean they had a terrible career, it is always a bit of a shame seeing your FM legend, for whom you had a special shirt printed after they won your non-league side the Champions League in 2025, turn out to be bang average when you close your laptop.

    As a result, when you’re bragging about how you took Woking from the National League to the top flight in six seasons, there is often a case of ‘if you know, you know’ when mentioning some legends of the video game who were actually nothing special.

    We’ve listed 13 of them, and the more hardcore FM players will nod their heads and smile to themselves as they’re reminded of their own in-game heroes from years gone by.

    Carlos Fierro

    One of the greatest wonderkids to never actually produce wonderful moments, Carlos Fierro was a 19-year-old striker on FM2012, at Mexican club Guadalajara. It is not an understatement to say he became better than Kylian Mbappe could ever dream of within the game.

    Signing him cheaply as a teenager would almost guarantee trophies, and he would develop into a predator in the box with searing pace and fantastic off-the-ball stats.

    However, reality is often disappointing, and Fierro sadly never came remotely close to the glory many would see him reach in the game.

    Although Fierro made nearly 200 appearances for Guadalajara, he only scored 20 goals, which would often be his total within a few months on the game.

    A few loan spells within Mexico and MLS followed, and the forward never even developed into an international, despite a few appearances for the Mexican youth sides.

    A bronze ball and a winners’ medal at the 2011 Under-17 World Cup was as close as he came to stardom and he currently plays for Juarez in the Mexican top flight.

    Jonathan Calleri

    The Argentinian journeyman striker has forged a decent career for himself in South America and Spain, with a season on loan at West Ham. But this pales in comparison to the monster he became on FM19 and editions before.

    A centre-forward who operated best in a front two, he would be available relatively cheaply and would guarantee goals.

    In the 2018-19 season in reality he was on loan at Deportivo Alaves in La Liga. But when deployed as an advanced forward with a strike partner in-game, he turned into the modern-day Gabriel Batistuta.

    To be fair, Calleri did once score a Europa League hat-trick against Wolves for Espanyol, giving us a small glimpse of what could have been.

    That's going out in style 👌

    — UEFA Europa League (@EuropaLeague) February 29, 2020

    Gino Peruzzi

    Once the next Pablo Zabaleta, the right-back was a cheap signing to make on FM17 who would evolve into a top-quality attacking full-back and an Argentina international.

    If you could secure a work permit, Peruzzi would be available for less than £10million from Boca Juniors on a relatively low wage but he would become so much more.

    Fans of a ‘Moneyball’ approach to FM – sign cheap and young, sell big and replace – would adore Peruzzi, as his value would treble overnight.

    However, back in the real world, while Peruzzi did forge out a career that saw him win five caps for Argentina, he never left his home country, and never truly settled at a club, moving on from Boca in 2018.

    Now at Alianza Lima, the 30-year-old’s hopes of becoming a legend anywhere outside a computer screen are pretty much gone.

    Josh McEachran

    Josh McEachran was a real-life wonderkid at Chelsea, destined to become the next Frank Lampard.

    “I used to watch Frank a lot in training every day and he talked to me a lot. I aspire to be a player like him,” McEachran stated in 2012.

    In Football Manager, he succeeded in this endeavour, developing into a superstar more often than not and becoming a mainstay in anyone’s team.

    The 29-year-old plays for MK Dons in League 1 in reality. Anyone who had him captain their side to Champions League glory will sadly never see him hit those heights.

    Sergi Samper

    Once mooted as the next Sergio Busquets, Samper would be available for a range of low prices, depending on which edition of FM you were playing between 2014 and 2018, and he would come good in almost all of them.

    A defensive midfielder with high passing and technique stats, Samper still plays with Andres Iniesta, but for Vissel Kobe in the Japanese top flight.

    Not quite the deep-lying playmaker who would grace thousands of FM teams.

    READ: Where are they now? The 8 Barca kids given debuts by Luis Enrique

    Hervin Ongenda

    Those that know, know.

    The next Nicolas Anelka at PSG on FM12. A forward in the Cypriot first division right now.

    Ricardo Kishna

    A pacy winger coming out of the Ajax academy was enough to get anyone excited, and his rapid explosion on every FM save made Kishna a must-buy.

    A failed stint at Lazio saw the Dutchman end up back at hometown club ADO Den Haag.

    A Ballon d’Or looks unlikely now.

    Juan Iturbe

    The Paraguay winger was once a legendary inside forward on the game, with high dribbling, speed and finishing stats that saw him rack up the goals.

    Once the talk of the town at Roma, Iturbe has played for 12 different clubs in his career, including a failed loan move to Bournemouth.

    He did become a full international for Paraguay, but he was destined for greater things in the virtual world.

    Lazar Markovic

    Everyone was signing Markovic on FM at the start of the decade. A wonderkid at Partizan Belgrade then a treble-winner at Benfica, the Serbian winger would turn into Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery combined.

    In reality, it looked like he would hit the heights, as Liverpool paid £20million for him in 2014. It was all downhill from there, as failed spells at clubs including Hull City and Fulham eventually saw him return to Belgrade with his tail between his legs.

    “I had no problem with Brendan Rodgers and we had a bond until, for some reason that remains a mystery to me, he changed,” the winger explained of his former manager in 2016.

    “He stopped playing me and then at the start of the season he didn’t include me in the squad, and nobody explained to me what was going on or what his plans were, so I decided to leave.”

    Daniel Sturridge pumps his fist during the match between Sydney FC and Perth Glory at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on January 22, 2022.

    READ: Where are they now? The last 10 Liverpool players that left on a free

    Sebastian Driussi

    A promising young talent, who to his credit did perform well as a wonderkid at River Plate, Driussi made a big move to Europe as Zenit St Petersburg signed the forward for around £15million in 2017.

    He did well enough in his first couple of seasons but fell off the grid completely until he bought his own contract out in the summer of 2021.

    Still just 26, Driussi plays for Austin FC in MLS.

    In our FM saves, he was Messi reincarnated. A versatile striker under six feet tall who could guarantee goals.

    Maybe the most gutting disappointment on this list.

    Marko Marin

    Once labelled the ‘German Messi’ at Werder Bremen, Marin’s ridiculous dribbling ability meant that on FM, the term was justified.

    In reality, he was one of many players to move to Chelsea and later regret it. Marin eventually played for 12 different clubs and currently runs out for Ferencvaros in the Hungarian top flight.

    Search for a player, set the dribbling rating to 18, and he’d be the one your scouts in 2012 would beg you to sign.


    READ: Where are they now? A ‘new Lionel Messi’ for every year since 2006

    Eder Alvarez Balanta

    One of the best ‘unknown’ players in the history of Football Manager, the Colombian centre-back was always an instant purchase on most saves in 2014.

    Ranked in the top three highest potential players alongside Paul Pogba and Marquinhos, his career did not pan out like the other two.

    A spell at Basel followed his successful breakthrough at River Plate, but Balanta now plays for Club Brugge.

    The 29-year-old would be a team of the season regular within the game, and would almost always become a world-class defender at the highest level.

    He’s not bad at all in reality, but he was the Virgil Van Dijk of the FM world.

    Andreas Cornelius

    A lethal striker at FC Copenhagen, then a Cardiff City flop, it would be unfair to suggest that Denmark international Andreas Cornelius has had a below-average career.

    However, his ability on Football Manager was beyond anyone’s wildest dreams. Cornelius as an advanced forward in a 4-2-3-1 was cash money for goals on FM14 and has won the Ballon d’Or in countless saves.

    He is scoring goals – 17 for Trabzonspor in the Turkish top-flight last season – but he was destined for Barcelona in the game. Instead, he moved back to boyhood club Copenhagen in the summer.

    Paris Hilton, 41, looked like she was having an incredible time during her recent one-year anniversary trip in the Maldives with Carter Reum. The socialite wore a red one-piece swimsuit and white-framed heart shaped sunglasses as she had fun in the water, in photos taken at the beautiful location. She also had her hair pulled back into a low bun and wore a red and white scarf at some points as she hung out on the beach with her shirtless husband.

    The beauty also added other photos to the Instagram post, and they showed the happy couple mingling and having a blast during other moments on the trip. In one snapshot, she wore a blue and white patterned bikini while relaxing on a lounge chair near a unicorn float. Another showed the lovebirds hugging in what looked like an outdoor pool or jacuzzi, and in the rest of the photos, they were dressed to impress in outfits that included long dresses for Paris and button-down tops and pants for Carter, as they held hands and smiled in the gorgeous weather.

    “I’ve been all over the world and stayed at the most beautiful places. But I’ve never seen anything like the @IthaafushiPrivateIsland at @WaldorfAstoriaMaldives. This private island is truly Paradise on Earth!😍🏝 So beautiful, romantic and relaxing here! Feels like a dream!🤩 I feel so lucky and blessed to be here with my love celebrating our anniversary. 🥰 #LifeisBeautiful 💘 #Maldives,” Paris captioned the epic post. 

    Paris and Carter’s latest anniversary getaway comes just a couple of weeks after she and Carter attended the launch party for her virtual realm, Paris World, in Santa Monica, CA. The event took place on their anniversary date and they were all smiles as they posed and matched in pink outfits. She wore a catsuit and pink-framed sunglasses as he wore a light pink top under a black and pink jacket and black pants.

    Paris and Carter were married on Nov. 11, 2021 after being engaged for around nine months. They started dating at the end of 2019 and have been open about trying to start a family through IVF treatments. “I can pick twins if I’d like,” she said on The Trend Reporter podcast in Jan. 2021. “[Carter and I] talk about [getting married] all the time and planning our babies’ names and all of that. I’m really excited to just move on to the next step of my life.”

  • Jodie Sweetin Has a Golden Idea for Fuller House Reboot
  • [ad_1]

    While Sweetin is game for a reboot, Stamos previously said he isn't interested in getting the gang back together onscreen, saying doing so without late Saget just wouldn't feel right.


    "It's just not the same without him," the actor told E! News in October. "There's something missing, there's a piece missing. We're doing a lot of tributes. I did that Netflix tribute [June's Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute], which was beautiful, I thought. Every chance I get, I talk about him. If we're real quiet, we could hear him complaining right now that I don't talk about him enough. We'll continue to do tributes to him, but I don't know about a Full House one, though."


    However, Stamos did recall how Saget, used to joke that "Fullest House would be the family and me in an urn on the fireplace."

  • FIFA World Cup 2022 Tunisia v Australia
  • [ad_1]

    By Damien McCartney and AP

    Melbourne's Federation Square went properly bananas after the Socceroos' 1-0 World Cup victory over Tunisia.

    The iconic Melbourne live site was packed with thousands of Aussie football fans for the clash with Tunisia, which kicked off at a friendly time of 9pm on Saturday night for the locals.

    As Mitch Duke's header hit the back of the net in the first half, the crowd roared as one as flares were lit and vocal cords strained.

    The crowd continued to buzz as the Socceroos survived numerous challenges from the Tunisians throughout the second half, before erupting again as the full-time whistle was blown as the time approached 11pm in Melbourne.

    Speaking on Weekend Today on Sunday morning, Socceroos great Mark Bosnich said the Socceroos' fate lay in their hands.

    Assuming France beat Tunisia, Australia only needs to draw against Denmark to make it through. A win would guarantee them a spot.

    "It's the first time since qualification when it went out of our hands ... that it's up to us what we do," Bosnich said.

    He said Denmark would still start the match as favourites, but believed the Socceroos play better as the underdog.

    "Denmark will be thinking 'if we can't beat Australia we don't deserve to be in the knockout stages'," he said.

    "Hopefully they underestimate us, because Australia's better in a an underdog situation.

    Socceroos 'not intimidated' says Bosnich

    "But either way ... they've done us proud.

    "Graham Arnold performed a minor miracle by qualifying us for this tournament. I said at the start of the tournament, they have nothing to lose.

    "As long as they don't get embarrassed ... they are on the precipice of making history.

    "It's going to be a tough game but I believe that they can do it."

    After the match, Arnold said he believed many Australians would be nursing Sunday morning hangovers, but his players would not be among them.

    "When the Socceroos play at World Cups, AFL fans, rugby league fans, cricket fans; they all become football fans. And I can imagine the celebrations that are going on at home. … I think they'll be a few hangovers in the morning," Arnold said.

    "(To the Socceroos) I just said, 'No doubt the nation is extremely proud, but we've done nothing. You've achieved something we can talk about when we get home'," he said.

    "I don't want any celebration. Just enjoy these couple of minutes on the pitch with the fans. Then ice baths, recover and get ready for the next one."

  • John Ryder beats Zach Parker, calls for Canelo Alvarez fight next: 'I want the big guns now. I want the Canelo fight' | Boxing News
  • [ad_1]

    John Ryder won the WBO interim super-middleweight title when Zach Parker was forced to withdraw after four rounds of their clash at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday.

    Parker sustained an injury to his hand at the start of the fourth round that ultimately prevented him from continuing with the bout.

    It was a bitterly disappointing end to the contest for Parker.

    "I'm absolutely gutted," Parker said. "He's obviously a good lad, he'll go on and do good things in boxing. I'll come back stronger.

    Parker's fight with Ryder proves to be short-lived

    Parker's fight with Ryder proves to be short-lived

    "It started warming up into being a good fight, but all the best to John."

    It was not the way Ryder wanted to win. He reflected, "I felt like the tide started to turn and I was getting more on top. Listen, these things happen in boxing. It was a bad injury for him but it feels like half a robbery of a win for me. It's one of those things."

    Ryder has not boxed since picking up a good points victory over Daniel Jacobs in February. This result catapults him back into contention on the world scene at 168lbs.

    Canelo Alvarez remains the undisputed champion at super-middleweight. He is recovering from injury after his successful defence of the unified WBO, WBA, WBC and IBF 168lb titles against Gennadiy Golovkin in September.

    Ryder is hoping the interim belt which he now holds will put him in line to challenge to the Mexican superstar next year.

    "I want the big guns now. I want the Canelo fight. In this career that's the icing on the cake," Ryder said.

    "I'm standing pretty now. It would be a dream to fight Canelo, on Cinco de Mayo, whenever, wherever.

    "Whether it be fighting Canelo or being upgraded to full champion so be it. There are still great fights out there for me."

  • COP27 delegates rubbed shoulders with energy executives ready to cut deals
  • [ad_1]

    Alongside the formal negotiations taking place in the halls of the sprawling COP27 climate summit in Egypt last week, a group of officials from Uganda met fossil fuel company executives to discuss potential oil exploration.

    “We’ve only explored 30-40 per cent of our oil resources,” said Irene Batebe, permanent secretary at Uganda’s ministry of energy and mineral development, which has approved the east African crude oil pipeline that will turn the country into an oil producer for the first time. “We are definitely ready for business for additional exploration.”

    The Ugandan delegation also had meetings with solar, wind and nuclear energy companies at the climate conference, which had been useful for “establishing contacts”, Batebe said.

    The dealmaking and networking on the sidelines of the COP27 summit was notable at the Red Sea resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh, where energy industry executives rubbed shoulders with top government officials at the vast conference, held against the backdrop of higher gas prices.

    Energy security was in focus as countries worked to secure gas supplies and diversify their energy mixes by adding renewables. The EU, in particular, has looked to African nations with fossil fuel reserves this year, to replace Russian gas supplies following the war on Ukraine.

    This imperative, combined with record numbers of fossil fuel industry lobbyists at COP27, raised concerns among climate change experts that the industry was promoting new oil and gas ventures as false solutions to energy security and national economic challenges.

    The push for gas as the “cleanest” fossil fuel was particularly evident in both official programme events and sideline discussions.

    “This COP was in part a gas trade fair,” said Alden Meyer, a UN climate negotiations expert at think-tank E3G. “You had producers here cutting deals for gas exports.”

    More than 45,000 people registered to attend the conference — a crowd that at times proved problematic, with people forced to wait at kiosks for an hour to buy food and drinking water running precariously short on some days.

    But the private sector groups hosted invitation-only events, often held beyond the main venue in more luxurious resort hotel settings.

    Among the prominent COP27 industry attendees was BP chief executive Bernard Looney, listed as a delegate for Mauritania, the west African nation where the oil major has investments and struck a green hydrogen deal announced during the summit. That followed a deal agreed by the two parties in October to explore offshore gas production.

    There was also a group from the Opec Fund for International Development, a multilateral financier of projects across a range of sectors, including energy and fossil fuels. One EU energy security adviser confirmed there were “meetings going on the side on gas imports”.

    During the summit, the EU’s energy commissioner Kadri Simson met her US counterpart to discuss the bloc’s plan to start purchasing gas as a group, and had dinner with the Egyptian energy minister.

    Quid-pro-quo deals on EU “imports of natural gas from Africa” were under discussion, said one European diplomat in Sharm el-Sheikh. “Africa is also saying ‘help us get the renewables’. That is the dynamic you are seeing right now.” 

    The Gas Exporting Countries Forum, whose Algerian secretary-general delivered a speech at COP27, said afterwards that it would “pay special attention to countries, which are newcomers to gas markets, by intensifying interaction with their governments . . . to encourage policies favouring natural gas” as part of its updated long-term strategy.

    But the potential for deals at COP27 went beyond fossil fuel energy. According to the Global Wind Energy Council, interest from governments in renewables sources was far greater in Egypt than in previous years.

    “We have met with government representatives from a wide range of emerging, developing and developed countries,” said Sepi Golzari-Munro, energy transition director at the council. “It’s notable this year that many more are very actively seeking us out.”

    Siemens Gamesa, a major wind turbine manufacturer, said its executives had met US senators, as well as officials from countries including Morocco, Egypt, Ghana and Senegal.

    COP27 also marked the launch of new industry groups such as the Global Offshore Wind Alliance, which brings together countries and companies for offshore wind deployment, and the Asia Clean Energy Coalition, a coalition of renewable energy buyers, sellers and financiers.

    Green hydrogen — derived using renewable power and water — was given a fillip, its development spurred by legislation from Joe Biden’s administration that provides credits for its production.

    Uganda and France’s HDF Energy, as well as the EU and Egypt, signed memorandums of understanding at the summit for green hydrogen projects.

    Lorenzo Simonelli, chief executive of oilfield services company Baker Hughes, which also finalised a green hydrogen agreement at COP27, said the company had attended the conference to “explore new ways we can partner with customers, governments, and other organisations.”

    Baker Hughes also “saw and supported” customers including the oil majors Saudi Aramco and TotalEnergies, he said.

    With activists tracking the presence of fossil fuel lobbyists at COP27, and the EU sensitive about the numerous gas import agreements it has signed this year, European governments were keen to avoid public discussions about gas.

    When the US and Germany announced a $500mn package to help Egypt deploy renewables, reduce its dependence on gas and close inefficient gas facilities, the White House said the agreement would “enhance energy security by freeing up over 2bn cubic meters of gas”.

    Conscious of the growing gas-deal criticism, Germany later stressed that any “freed up” gas had not been set aside for export to meet its domestic needs.

  • Carlos Queiroz hits back at Jurgen Klinsmann's 'outrageous' comments about Iran
  • [ad_1]

    Iran coach Carlos Queiroz has called ‘outrageous’ comments made about his team by 1990 World Cup winner and BBC pundit Jurgen Klinsmann a ‘disgrace to football’, demanding that the former Germany striker also resign from his role as a member of FIFA’s Technical Study Group.

    Klinsmann was working on BBC’s coverage of Iran’s game against Wales on Friday and was highly critical. The former United States coach made broad generalisations about Iran’s style and character, repeatedly stating ‘This is their culture’ in a clip that made for uncomfortable viewing.

    “It is part of their culture and how they play it, they worked the referee perfectly. The bench was always jumping up and working the linesman and the fourth official on the sideline,” he said.

    “They're constantly in your ear and your face. Kieffer Moore will probably tell you some stories after this game, he had a lot of little incidents out there that we didn't see. This is their culture, they kind of make you lose your focus and concentration, what's really important to you.”

    He also hit out at Queiroz individually, questioning the coach’s record in charge of other international teams like Colombia and Egypt, and specifically claiming that Iran ‘suits’ him for the above reasons.

    Klinsmann even made prejudiced remarks about the Guatemalan referee, Mario Escobar, implying that Iran might have been more strictly governed in the match by an official from another country.

    “It would have been a big difference with another referee,” Klinsmann claimed. “They had a Guatemalan referee. I worked in the USA for six years and went to Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica. This fits their culture basically.”

    On Saturday night, Queiroz posted a lengthy open letter to Klinsmann on Twitter, in which he took the moral high ground and invited Klinsmann to visit’s Iran base to learn about the culture and country where the ex-Manchester United assistant has worked for most of the last 11 years.

    “Even not knowing me personally, you question my character with a typical prejudiced judgment of superiority,” Queiroz wrote. “No matter how much I can respect what you did [on] the pitch, those remarks about Iran Culture, Iran National Team and my Players are a disgrace to football.

    “Nobody can hurt our integrity if it is not at our level, of course even saying so, we would like to invite you as our guest, to come to our National Team Camp, socialize with Iran players and learn from them about the country, the people of Iran, the poets and art, the algebra, all the millennial Persian culture.

    “And also listen from our players how much they love and respect football. As American/German, we understand your no support. No problem. And despite your outrageous remarks on BBC trying to undermine our efforts, sacrifices and skills, we promise you that we will not produce any judgments regarding your culture, roots and background and that you will always be welcome to our Family.

    “At the same time, we just want to follow with full attention what will be the decision of FIFA regarding your position as a member of Qatar 2022 Technical Study Group. Because, obviously, we expect you to resign before you visit our camp.”

  • Daily Authority: 🔓 Samsung's terrible password trend
  • [ad_1]

    Samsung Logo IFA 2022

    Robert Triggs / Android Authority

    🍟 Good morning! Welcome to Tuesday’s Daily Authority. I’m gearing up for Black Friday and prepping my wishlist, though the only item on it right now is an air fryer. Fingers crossed for the perfect deal!

    Bad move, Samsung owners

    dog password

    We all know how important a strong password is to prevent unauthorized access to our accounts, don’t we? It seems like some Samsung owners didn’t get the memo, as a new study revealed that a growing number of Samsung owners are using the same terrible password.

    • According to SamMobile, the study, carried out by password management solution company NordPass, found that “samsung” (with a lowercase S) was one of the most commonly used passwords in at least 30 countries.

    • That may sound unbelievable, but when you consider that “password” is still the most commonly used password, followed closely by “12345” it suddenly seems more likely.

    • Apparently this troubling trend is growing.

    • SamMobile reports that “samsung” was the 198th most commonly used password in 2019.

    • By 2020, it had reached 189th place.

    • The terrible password continued its epic ascent to reach 78th place in the rankings by 2021.

    Don’t be obvious

    We can’t stress this enough: please don’t use the name of your phone’s brand as your password; just don’t. Whether you use a lowercase or uppercase S doesn’t affect how secure this password is, either.

    • It may be tricky coming up with a hard-to-crack password for all your accounts, but it’s well worth the time spent to keep your personal data safe.

    • If you’re the forgetful type, like many of us here at Android Authority, you could always use a password manager like LastPass to manage all of your passwords.

    • Of course, we may soon be entering an entirely password-free future with more secure alternatives like Passkeys — developers on Android and Chrome can already try these out.

    • While you’re here, why not check out our 33 tips to stay safe online and lower your risk of being hacked?

    November 22 isn’t just another grey November day — it’s Go for a Ride Day. The day celebrates exploring your surroundings by whatever method you choose, whether that’s by car, bike, train, bus, or on foot.

    You could celebrate today by getting on your e-bike or scooter, charging up your EV and taking off on a road trip, going for a run, or hopping on a train or bus — don’t forget to pack your noise-cancelling earbuds, though.

  • 'I got robbed' - Jermaine Franklin unhappy after Dillian Whyte defeat, as Anthony Joshua shows respect to old rival at ringside
  • [ad_1]

    Dillian Whyte made his case for a potential rematch with Anthony Joshua in 2023 with a majority decision win over Jermaine Franklin on Saturday night.

    However, the result has divided opinion among boxing fans with the American putting in a far better performance than many expected and subsequently claiming he was ‘robbed’ by the judges.

    Whyte got the nod from the judges

    The fight began with both men marching to the middle of the ring and attempting to establish their jabs.

    Franklin caught the eye with a series of accurate shots early on, though Whyte was unbothered.

    Despite being in enemy territory, the American appeared not to be overawed in his first step up and first fight away from home.

    This pattern continued into round two, though Whyte battled back with big body shots.

    In the third, Whyte upped his output and found a home for some crushing blows which slowed Franklin down.

    The Brit was happy to ship punches in order to close the gap and attempt to wear the American down.

    The fight was a back-and-forth affair

    Round five saw Franklin give a spirited effort as he utilised his superior hand speed to land the more frequent blows.

    Whyte replied with harder punches, but as they hit the halfway point it appeared as though Franklin had built a points lead.

    Despite the Brit’s body work to try and wear his opponent down, the American kept firing away unfazed.

    Franklin briefly staggered Whyte with a huge right hand at the end of round nine as the bell came at the right time for the 34-year-old.

    As they entered the championship rounds, Whyte sought an advantage and yet again Franklin refused to let him have anything easily.

    This time it was a big right hand from the Brit which ended the round.

    The American finally seemed to be tiring as he entered the latter stages of a 12-round fight for the first time of his career, but continued to throw back as Whyte tried to pressurise him,

    In the final round, the pair stood and traded in the middle of the ring, both giving it everything in a slugfest-style session.

    Joshua was ringside and showed respect to Whyte afterwards

    Whyte rocked Franklin with a massive hook in the final seconds, then the final bell rang to save the American.

    When the scorecards were read out, Whyte was declared the winner by majority decision with scores of 115-115, 116-112, 116-112.

    “I felt like I got robbed, Franklin said post-fight.

    “I felt like I did enough to get the decision. I felt like I won the earlier rounds. I just felt like I got robbed on the decision.”

    Joshua watched from ringside and showed respect to Whyte, knowing full well they could lock horns again in 2023.

    No concessions — that is the thrust of a long and defiant speech by Iran’s Supreme Leader.

    Ayatollah Ali Khamenei rejected protesters’ demands for reforms, calling them rioters.

    He was addressing members of the Basij, a paramilitary group.

    Hundreds of demonstrators have been killed since the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody in September.

    The protests have become one of the biggest challenges to Iran’s clerical leadership since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

    The group stage at the 2022 World Cup continues, as 16 teams look to win a place in the knockout bracket.

    Here we take a look at what every nation needs to do to get out of their group and keep the dream alive in Qatar.

    QUALIFIED (1/16): France

    ELIMINATED (1/16): Qatar


    If two or more teams are level on points, they will be separated in the following order:

    1) Overall group goal difference
    2) Overall group goals scored
    3) Head to head (H2H) result
    4) H2H goal difference in all matches between the teams still level
    5) H2H goals scored in all matches between the teams still level
    6) Fair play points
    7) Drawing of lots

    Full team-by-team permutations will appear after the second round of matches in each group.

    - World Cup 2022: News and features | Schedule | Squads


    Remaining fixtures
    Tuesday (10 a.m. ET): Ecuador vs. Senegal, Netherlands vs. Qatar

    Netherlands: Are guaranteed to qualify with a win/draw vs Qatar. Will also qualify with a defeat if Ecuador win.

    If Netherlands lose and Ecuador-Senegal is a draw, Ecuador win the group with five points, Netherlands and Senegal both have four points:
    - Netherlands will definitely qualify if they lose to Qatar by one goal.
    - If Netherlands lose to Qatar by two goals it will come down to group goals scored. If this is level, Netherlands finish second on head-to-head.
    - Netherlands cannot qualify if they lose by three or more goals.

    If Netherlands and Ecuador both lose, second place will be decided on goal difference and then goals scored between the two teams, which is currently identical; if records finish identical, second place is decided on fair play (yellow and red cards).

    Ecuador: Are guaranteed to qualify with a win/draw vs. Senegal. If they lose, they can only qualify if Netherlands also lose and the above goal-difference scenario would then apply.

    If both Netherlands and Ecuador win, first place will be decided on goal difference and then goals scored. If this is identical, first place is decided on fair play points.

    Senegal: Will definitely qualify with a win vs. Ecuador. A draw will also be enough if Netherlands lose and the above goal-difference and head-to-head scenarios then apply. Can top the group with a win if Netherlands draw/lose.

    Qatar: Have been eliminated.


    Remaining fixtures
    Tuesday (2 p.m. ET): Iran vs. United States, Wales vs. England

    England: Can only be eliminated with a heavy defeat to Wales. Guaranteed to top the group with a win, and a draw will be enough unless Iran win, or USA win by at least four goals.

    If Iran or USA win, England can lose by up to three goals and still go through in second. If England lose by four or more goals and Iran or USA win, England finish third behind Wales.

    If England lose and Iran-USA is a draw, England will win the group as long as they don't lose by four goals. If England lose by four or five goals, Wales will win the group with England coming in second. England would have to lose by six or more goals to possibly finish third behind Iran (depending on the number of goals Iran scored.)

    Iran: Guaranteed to finish in the top two with a win vs. USA, and will win the group if England draw/lose. A draw for Iran will also be enough if Wales draw/lose. Iran cannot go through with a defeat.

    United States: Must beat Iran to go through. Can top the group if England lose to Wales (or if England draw and USA win by four or more goals.)

    Wales: Must beat England and hope Iran vs. USA is a draw to finish in the top two, and could top the group if they beat England by four or more goals. If USA or Iran win, Wales will need to beat England by four or more goals to finish second ahead of them.


    Remaining fixtures
    Wednesday (2 p.m. ET): Poland vs. Argentina, Saudi Arabia vs. Mexico

    Poland: Need a draw vs. Argentina to qualify. Will win the group with a victory, or with a draw if Saudi Arabia draw/lose.

    If Poland lose and Saudi Arabia draw, Poland will finish second if they lose by one or two goals; if Poland lose by three goals it will be decided by group goal difference and then goals scored (if records are identical, Poland finish second on head to head); if Poland lose by four or more goals it's Saudi Arabia in second and Poland in third.

    If Poland lose and Saudi Arabia win, Poland are out.

    Argentina: Guaranteed to qualify with a win vs. Poland, and will do so as group winners if Saudi Arabia draw/lose. If both Argentina and Saudi Arabia win, top spot will be decided on group goal difference and goals scored; Argentina currently have the goal-difference advantage by two goals. If the scoring record is identical, Saudi Arabia win the group on head to head.

    If Argentina draw vs. Poland, they are only certain of qualifying if Saudi Arabia also draw. If Argentina draw and Saudi Arabia win, Argentina are out (Saudi Arabia and Poland qualify). If Argentina draw and Mexico win by one or two goals, Argentina finish second and Mexico third; if Mexico win by three goals it will be decided by group goal difference and then goals scored (if records are identical, Argentina finish second on head to head); if Mexico win by four goals, Mexico are second and Argentina third.

    Argentina cannot qualify with a defeat.

    Saudi Arabia: Guaranteed to qualify with a win vs. Mexico, and will do so as group winners if Poland-Argentina draw. If both Saudi Arabia and Argentina win, top spot will be decided as noted above.

    If Saudi Arabia draw vs. Mexico, they are only certain of qualifying if Argentina lose. If Saudi Arabia draw and Poland lose by one or two goals, Saudi Arabia are out; if Saudi Arabia draw and Poland lose by three goals, second will be decided by group goal difference and goals scored (if records are identical, Poland finish second on head to head); if Poland lose by four or more goals, Saudi Arabia finish second.

    Saudi Arabia cannot qualify if both games are draws, or if they lose to Mexico.

    Mexico: Must beat Saudi Arabia to have a chance; and a win by four or more goals guarantees qualification.

    If Poland and Mexico win, Mexico finish second.

    If Poland lose and Mexico win, second place will be decided between Poland and Mexico on group goal difference and goals scored, and Mexico would have to overturn a deficit of four goals (if records are identical, for instance Poland lose 2-0 and Mexico win 2-0, second is decided on fair play points.)

    If Poland-Argentina is a draw, second place will be decided between Argentina and Mexico on group goal difference and goals scored. Mexico would need to win by three goals for second place to be decided on group goal difference and goals scored (if records are identical, Argentina finish second on head to head); if Mexico win by four or more goals, they would finish second and Argentina third.

    Wednesday (10 a.m. ET): Australia vs. Denmark, Tunisia vs. France

    France: Have qualified for the round of 16 and will definitely top the group if they win/draw vs. Tunisia, or if Australia fail to beat Denmark.

    Australia: Guaranteed to finish in the top two if they beat Denmark. Will also qualify with a draw if Tunisia draw/lose against France. If Australia draw and Tunisia win, Tunisia finish second on goal difference. Australia cannot qualify with a defeat.

    Denmark: Must win, and will finish second if Tunisia draw/lose. If both Denmark and Tunisia win, second place will be decided on goal difference (both are now on -1) and then goals scored -- if this is identical, second place will be decided on fair play points as the head to head is level.

    Tunisia: Must win, and are guaranteed to finish second if Australia vs. Denmark is a draw. If Denmark win, second place will be decided as noted above. Tunisia cannot qualify if Australia win.

  • World Cup 2022: Gareth Southgate tells England to ‘match the spirit’ of Wales
  • [ad_1]

    Gareth Southgate says his players need to show intelligence and spirit to halt a “wounded” Wales side that will be “desperate to beat the English” on the world stage.

    Having opened Group B with a stunning 6-2 victory against Iran and then drawn 0-0 with the United States, last year’s Euros runners-up are well placed to reach the World Cup last 16.

    England will progress so long as they avoid a four-goal defeat to Wales, whose manager Robert Page appeared to write off their hopes after the late 2-0 loss to Iran followed their 1-1 draw with the US.

    Their chances of reaching the knockout phase may be hanging by a thread but Southgate knows Tuesday’s opponents will be desperate to secure a first World Cup win since 1958.

    “We have got to play well,” Southgate said ahead of the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium showdown. “We are going to play an opponent that is wounded and, like everybody else, desperate to beat the English. We know what that will be.

    “We have got to play an intelligent game and play well. Match the spirit. I would be very disappointed if someone says to me that their players will want it more than ours.

    “I would be asking questions about what we stand for and what we have been for five years. We are not quite done.

    “We need a point more to be certain of qualifying. We need three points and if we get that we top the group and I don’t think many groups will be topped with nine points.”

    Southgate stressed the need to use the ball well and make sure they step up on the US stalemate, meaning they will analyse their selection options over the coming days.

    Tuesday’s match is likely to come too soon for James Maddison having only started training on Saturday following a knee complaint, while the likes of Alan Shearer have suggested Harry Kane needs a rest.

    The England captain underwent a scan on his foot after a poor challenge against Iran and completed Friday’s draw with the US, with Southgate baulking at the suggestion playing him was a risk.

    “No gamble at all,” he said. “He has had a whack to his foot so there is a tiny bit of discomfort when he is striking the ball but we are not talking about anything that was a risk in any way shape or form.”

    The next few days may feel similar to last summer, when an impressive win against Croatia in their Euros opener was followed by a drab goalless draw with Scotland.

    There was a smattering of boos at the end of that game at Wembley, just as there was in Qatar on Friday evening.

    Southgate questioned whether they were aimed at England but knows the stalemate will only add to this “tournament of external noise”.

    “I have been in lots of tournaments as a player,” the 57-cap former international said. “I remember in 1998 when we beat Tunisia and then lost to Romania and I remember saying to the players after that if anybody thinks we can’t beat Colombia, then what are we doing.

    “You have to go three games. You have got to be ready to do that. We are going to go to knockout games eventually anyway so you have got to be able to handle those moments.

    “When you have had as much flak as me you are not really bothered about having a bit more.”

    Southgate has developed the hide of a rhinoceros since missing his key penalty in the Euro 96 semi-final defeat to Germany at Wembley.

    There have been plenty of highs and lows for the 52-year-old since then, but the England boss has learned how to cope with the background noise.

    If I listen to everything, I either go bonkers or you start to doubt yourself and you listen to too many things

    Gareth Southgate

    “I am lucky,” he said. “I am locked away in a hotel with no telly on. But I don’t need to see it because I know what it will be. It is a deliberate disengagement.

    “Because if I listen to everything, I either go bonkers or you start to doubt yourself and you listen to too many things. I am clear on how we need to be and on decisions we need to make.

    “We won’t get every single decision right and so if there is criticism of certain calls, then so be it. But if you had said to me four points from the two games, goal difference where it is, then I knew tonight would be a tough game.

    “We would love to have won it and got the job done but we haven’t so we have to go again.”

  • "Failed to do so" - Graeme Souness labels England star selfish after FIFA World Cup developments
  • [ad_1]

    Liverpool legend Graeme Souness believes England striker Harry Kane should not have remained on the pitch after suffering an injury in their FIFA World Cup opener against Iran.

    England ran riot at the Khalifa International Stadium on November 21 as they secured a 6-2 victory against Iran. Jude Bellingham, Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford, and Jack Grealish got their names on the scoresheet after scoring a goal each.

  • Messi, Fernandez goals guide Argentina to a 2-0 win over Mexico
  • [ad_1]

    On Saturday, in the last match of the day, Argentina, which lost their first match to Saudi Arabia, scored in the 64th minute through Lionel Messi to register their first win and three points.

    La Albiceleste struck a second time in the match through a gem of a goal from Endo Fernandez with three minutes left for the normal period of play to end.

    Argentina now have three points after two matches and now are second in Group C with three points, tied with Saudi Arabia and one point behind leaders Poland, who beat the Saudis 2-0 in the earlier game.

    Both Argentina and Mexico meant business right from kick-off but could not create scoring chances and it was left to the brilliance of Messi to open the floodgates of the Mexico defence.

    The seven-time Ballon d'Or winner broke the deadlock with a powerful left footer drive which eluded the outstretched Mexico keeper Guillermo Ochoa after being set up by Angel Di Maria from outside the box.

    Ochoa was hitherto unbeaten in Qatar. The strike, then, needed to be true and accurate -- and Messi's crisp shot met both criteria, scooting inside Ochoa's left post. The unthinkable prospect of Messi's attempt to win a first World Cup going south after two matches was banished with one swipe of the most famous left foot on the planet.

    It was Messi's eight goal in the World Cup, having netted one in the first match against Saudi Arabia in the 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia. Messi's eight goals equaled Diego Mardonna's record of eight goals and only Gabriel Batistuta with 10 goals remains ahead of him in the all-time leading goal scorers for Argentina.

    Messi had a hand in the second goal too as the flag kick taken by him ended up with Fernandez, who curled his effort into the top corner for a stunning goal in the 87th minute. The 21-year-old striker who plays club football for Portuguese side Benifica and who came as a second half substitute 'labelled' as talented by Messi showed why he is so and why he is on the shopping list of English Premier League giants Liverpool and Manchester United at a transfer fee of 15 million pounds.

    Earlier, Messi was in the thick of the action when the 35-year-old genius sent a 22-yard free-kick over the bar six minutes after half-time which added to the anxiety of the Argentinian fans.

  • Lionel Messi rises above the dross to breathe life into Argentina's World Cup hopes...
  • [ad_1]

    Argentina were a frantic mess for the most part against Mexico and even Lionel Messi was being dragged down. Until he decided to rise above it all and lift La Albiceleste…

    Argentina needed to show a reaction on Saturday night to their shock defeat to Saudi Arabia. And they offered one: blind panic. At least until Lionel Messi saved them once again.

    Perhaps we should give the Argentines some grace since defeat is not something they have been familiar with of late. Prior to Tuesday, it had been 36 games and over three years since they were last second-best. After watching them face the Saudis and Mexico, it’s a mystery how they got away with it for so long.

    That must be the real Argentina, not this one we’ve seen in Qatar. Still, at least there is still time for La Albiceleste to find themselves again and hope remains of Messi being crowned a World Cup winner in his fifth and last finals.

    Granted, that hope has dwindled somewhat since before they opened their Group C campaign. Even Messi might struggle to carry this mob without a swift and comprehensive improvement.

    That, presumably, was what Lionel Scaloni was seeking when he changed five of his outfield 10 in the wake of their Saudi embarrassment. Alterations were required, no question. But half of his team? It seemed an extreme reaction to the untimely end of a record-equalling undefeated run. If Tuesday’s result was indeed a freak occurrence, it would have made sense to stick with the plan.

    Instead, Scaloni ripped it up. And inside the first three-quarters of a hot mess of a match against Mexico, there were five more alterations from the bench. So we shouldn’t be surprised that Argentina showed no sign of any cohesion. They were fortunate that Mexico were more hopeless.

    That wasn’t the case during the first-half. In fact, the Mexicans had the better of it. Across the pitch, Argentina looked afraid. Terrified in and out of possession; scared of making a mistake; and more than anything, terrified of the consequences of another defeat.

    The two new full-backs, Gonzalo Montiel and Marcos Acuna, were woeful; Rodrigo De Paul looked like he’d struggle to find water from a boat, let alone a team-mate with a pass; while Lautaro Martinez took until the 50th minute of the first half to complete his first one.

    Argentina vs Mexico

    Messi wasn’t immune to the malaise. And he looked thoroughly sick of it. On 64 minutes he decided to do something about it.

    Until then, Mexico had done a grand job of swarming Messi. He had wriggled free early in the second half and had his first run abruptly halted by a cynical foul. But when he ballooned the free-kick over the bar, it seemed Argentina were taking him down with them.

    Perhaps it was all a ploy. If so, Mexico fell for it. When the ball arrived at Messi’s feet on the edge of the box, there wasn’t the same care and attention paid to the obvious threat. Messi capitalised, drilling a low shot into the very corner of Guillermo Ochoa’s goal.

    Few sights demonstrate the pressure being heaped on this Argentina team like the site of assistant manager Pablo Aimar breaking into tears after today"s vital Messi goal to help Argentina rebound from their opening game loss to Saudi Arabia. 🇦🇷

    — Men in Blazers (@MenInBlazers) November 26, 2022

    With that, Messi had once again lifted a great weight from Argentina’s shoulders. The relief was palpable, not just in the celebrations but in the way they controlled the rest of the game. It got no prettier, but with the advantage, it didn’t have to be. Argentina just had to keep Mexico at arm’s length, which three centre-backs and the Mexicans’ own toothlessness achieved.

    Enzo Fernandez added a layer of gloss with a lovely finish three minutes from the end, once again the result of Mexico’s inability to smell the danger, never mind avert it. After his first international goal, and the Benfica midfielder’s form in the lead up to the World Cup, it would be little surprise to see Scaloni make another change for the decider against Poland.

    On Wednesday, it could all go wrong again. There’s little margin for further error in Group C and Argentina don’t seem to be coping well with such pressure. Messi has carried their hopes before and he will again here. But at some point in Qatar, his team-mates need to bear their share of the lad.

  • Princess Charlotte Reportedly Becoming ‘Duchess Of Edinburgh’ – Hollywood Life

    King Charles III has reportedly been saving a special title for Princess Charlotte. The new monarch, who took over the British throne following the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth II, is preparing to name Prince William and Kate Middleton’s middle child, who is third in line for the throne, as the Duchess of Edinburgh, per sources for DailyMail. The movie is reportedly in honor of the late Queen, who was also the Duchess of Edinburgh before becoming the ruler in 1952.

    “Discussions are under way, but the favored outcome for the King is that this title ought to go to Princess Charlotte,” the insider explained. “It would be a fitting way to remember the Queen – who, of course, had the title Duchess of Edinburgh – and a way for His Majesty to honour the line of succession.”

    The outlet went on to say that the revelation came after months of speculation as to why King Charles III had not named his brother, Prince Edward, as the Duke of Edinburgh following the death of their father, Prince Philip, in April 2021.

    Princess Charlotte still holds the position of third in line for the throne, behind older brother Prince George, even after their younger brother Prince Louis was born, as the rules of Royal primogeniture were changed to allow a girl born to a royal couple the same rights as a boy when Princess Diana was pregnant with Prince William. With the new rule, Charlotte will not lose her order of succession until George has children. When Prince William becomes King, George will become Duke of Cornwall and then Prince of Wales – but not Duke of Edinburgh.

    The DailyMail source added, “Charlotte’s position is historically significant because she is the first female member of the Royal Family whose place in the line of succession will not be surpassed by her younger brother. So it is constitutionally significant because it is not beyond the realms of possibility that she will accede the throne if, for example, Prince George does not have children.”

  • Will Elton John’s Sons Follow in His Musical Footsteps? He Says…
  • [ad_1]

    Following the yellow brick road.

    Hot on the heels of his star-studded show at Los Angeles' Dodgers Stadium,  Elton John weighed in on whether his sons Zachary, 11 and Elijah, 9, who he shares with husband David Furnish, have musical aspirations of their own.

    "They are still so young, so not entirely sure," Elton told E! News on Nov 23 at unveiling of Saks Fifth Avenue's holiday windows in New York City. "But of course, whatever their dreams and ambitions are, my husband David and I will fully support them."

    At the event, where Saks donated $1 million was donated to the Elton John AIDS Foundation's Rocket Fund, the "Crocodile Rock" singer reflected on the special holiday tradition.

    "Taking the stage on Fifth Avenue and feeling the magical energy of New York during the holidays, is the best way to celebrate the end of my Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour in the U.S." he shared. "I share the appreciation for luxury fashion that Saks has, and have always seen their holiday windows as one of the most iconic parts of New York City during the holidays."

  • Mitch Duke pays tribute to son with goal for Socceroos
  • [ad_1]

    DOHA: Mitch Duke knows that scoring in a World Cup will be with him for the rest of his life - and he's glad he got to share it with someone so close to his heart.

    After heading home Australia's only goal against Tunisia, he sprinted towards one section of the crowd and made a 'J' symbol with his hands.

    "I spoke to my son as I got selected in the World Cup and as a striker you need to have that confidence and believe you're going to score in every match," he told reporters after heading home Australia's only goal in the 1-0 victory over Tunisia.

    "I was messaging some of my family saying I was going to score today and I told my son I was going to be able to share this moment with him and do that celebration.

    "The gesture was the letter J – the first letter of his name. I haven't seen it yet but apparently he did it back to me which is a very special moment I'm going to treasure for the rest of my life."

    Mitch Duke's goal celebration is mirrored in the stands by his son Jaxson. (SBS)

    Duke said the moment he scored was "pure ecstacy", as he gave Australia a lead they would not relinquish. 

    "It was a crazy moment for me. After Craig Goodwin scored (against France) we were told he was going to be the seventh Australian player to score at a World Cup.

    "I said to Arnie (coach Graham Arnold) a couple of days ago that I was going to be the eighth… or ninth.

    "I'm very happy to be the eighth. It was honestly a tough game, we knew they were going to be aggressive for the whole 90 minutes. I felt the boys did their jobs perfectly, we matched them physically."

    Injured Socceroo still providing support

    Martin Boyle may have missed the World Cup due to injury, be he's still in Qatar with the squad and was right in the middle of the celebrations.

    Boyle had surgery in Qatar last week on what was initially only thought to be a meniscus issue, but has turned out to be a ruptured ACL.

    There's no doubt it was partly bittersweet for him to be there but unable to contribute on the pitch against Tunisia, but he's well and truly still a part of things in camp.

    "We've moved him into the staff now, as our OVM: Official Vibes Manager," coach Graham Arnold said.

    "He'll keep all the boys up, because he's just one of the most fantastic blokes you'll ever meet in your life.

    "Even though he's got that injury, the most important thing for him is the rest of the boys. There's no way he wanted to go (home). He wants to stay, support and be part of it.

    "He deserves it more than anyone for of what he did in the qualifying campaign."

    Socceroos 'not intimidated' says Bosnich

    Highway runners highlight logistical issues

    There has been a lot right with Qatar's hosting of the World Cup in terms of the quality of venues and the general attitude of the volunteers and workers, but at every turn you'll see things that showcase their greenness when it comes to hosting global events.

    In addition to streets being blocked off for no reason, or fence after fence taking people on wild goose chases, the way that fans are funnelled into specific areas AFTER games has frustrated many.

    It's understandable why you'd want to avoid crushes and make sure everyone is safe on the way in to a stadium, but the farcical scenes at Al Bayt after England's clash with USA saw all fans trying to get Uber, taxis or one of the two bus services guided along one path, much to their chagrin.

    It got particularly embarrassing for the hosts when, such was the dire situation of wait times and crowds, some fans opted to push past a barricade and run across a multi-lane highway in search of a better vantage point for securing a ride home.

    I'm not sure exactly what a well-organised transport system should look like, but presumably it doesn't end with people playing their own high stakes game of Frogger. 

    Socceroos fans go wild in Fed Square

    Leckie praises complete performance

    Along with Mat Ryan, Melbourne City winger Mat Leckie is the longest-serving Socceroo in terms of caps, and has been a key part of plenty of big tournaments over the past decade - he saw plenty of parallels between Saturday's win and the biggest victory of the Socceroos' recent past.

    "I've been a part of a lot games, the most important and the key thing today was how we went into the game physically - we just wanted to be on the front foot and throw everything at them, be physically better than them, and it was a little bit like the Peru game," Leckie said.

    "It was do-or-die and today was the same thing. If we don't get a result today, we go home - it was very good, I'm very proud. The mentality of the team's been very good and the key thing now is just getting right for the next one."

    What Socceroos must do now

    Kylian Mbappe's brace was enough to get France the win over Denmark, but Australian fans were cheering just as hard for the superstar striker.

    Either a draw or a France win were welcome results for the Socceroos, and as a result you had Australians gathered around TVs at pubs and live sites around Doha, feverishly cheering for the team that smashed them a few days ago.

    As a result, it's now a very simple scenario for the Australians on Thursday (2am AEDT) - win and you're through to the knockout stages, and unless Tunisia beat France, a draw is enough too.
