The Gunners were under par in the first half but went ahead in fourth minute of added time when Sokratis turned home Reiss Nelson’s cross, and Eddie Nketiah’s goal shortly after the interval secured a 2-0 win. It was the London club’s first game since their shock Europa League exit at the hands of Olympiakos, and Arteta says he was pleased with the reaction shown by his players. “It’s a difficult place to come but I have faith in these kids. They always respond and I always knew they would do that”, the Spaniard told BT Sport. “They have to learn from the difficult moments and manage them but they have the talent and desire and look how hard they work”. Bukayo Saka, Matteo Guendouzi, Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock, Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah all started the tie at Fratton Park, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles was also introduced from the bench for a youthful Arsenal side. Mikel Arteta praised Arsenal’s young players after watching his side progress to the FA Cup quarter-finals with a win over Portsmouth. Nketiah scored the second goal which effectively secured progression, while Nelson provided the assists for both goals and it was the 20-year-old winger in particular who was singled out by Arteta in his post-match interviews. He said: “We have pace in a few players up front. Reiss is a special player and can eliminate players one on one. He’s been out for a while but he’s back now and he showed what he’s capable of doing”. “I’m really enjoying working with this group of players,. It’s a process. I know everything has to be today or yesterday but in football it doesn’t happen like this.

Dynamo on Tuesday posted a statement on their official website which said Buttner’s contract was “agreed upon” and that only “technical details” were being settled, and which was accompanied by pictures of the left-back in their training kit.

Press Association “Dynamo are a very strong team and I am confident that we will fight for first place this season.” Buttner has made a total of only 28 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals, since joining United from Vitesse Arnhem in the summer of 2012. His fellow left-back Patrice Evra in May signed a new contract with the Red Devils, who have been linked with another player in that position, Southampton’s England international Luke Shaw. Manchester United defender Alexander Buttner has agreed a contract with Dynamo Moscow, the Russian side have announced.
For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: In an unprecedented development, a member of the India women cricket team was allegedly approached to fix matches earlier this year, prompting the BCCI’s Anti-Corruption Unit to lodge an FIR against two individuals on Monday. The alleged incident, which the player reported to the Board’s ACU, took place in February, ahead of the limited-overs home series against England.Ajit Singh Shekhawat, who heads the ACU, confirmed the development to PTI.”She is an Indian international cricketer so the ICC conducted an inquiry into it. The ICC warned the person who made the approach and informed us and acknowledged that the cricketer has done the right thing by reporting the approach,” Shekhawat said.The ACU has registered a first-information report (FIR) with the Bengaluru police against two individuals, Rakesh Bafna and Jitendra Kothari, for the alleged approach.”We followed that inquiry and it was much more than that. If we let that person off with a warning it doesn’t make any difference at all.””… So we went into his other links and connected the dots and we gave it to the police because we have no jurisdiction over them. We have jurisdiction only over participants. So they are going to investigate it,” Shekhawat added.The case has been registered under four sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) including Section 420, which pertains to cheating.The player is said to have also recorded the conversation she had with one of the accused over the telephone.It is learnt that the player was approached while she was undergoing recovery sessions at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, with Kothari, who introduced her to Bafna, claiming to be a sports manager.The incident showed that women cricketers are also vulnerable to corrupt approaches like their male counterparts.
Long balls landed among the palm trees to no avail on Tuesday in one of the most picturesque parks in Southern California.Going deep · Senior outfielder Greg Zebrack (above) was USC’s top performer on Tuesday in the team’s 9-5 loss to the Pepperdine Waves. He finished 2-3 with a home run and two RBIs for the game. – Joseph Chen | Daily TrojanThe Trojans (16-27), coming off a tough sweep at now No. 6 Oregon State, made their last stop of an eight-game road trip in Malibu, Calif. to take on the Pepperdine Waves (22-17).With both teams trading early home runs in Home Run Derby fashion, it appeared as though USC would out-launch the Waves to a much-needed victory. Once again, however, the Trojan bullpen could not evade an ugly big inning and USC ended its trip on a sour note with a 9-5 loss in a season sweep against Pepperdine.The long ball couldn’t help a Trojan team that has had difficulty taking advantage of runners in scoring position. An anemic offense contributed three home runs (five runs total) in the previous series against Oregon State and USC was ultimately unable to eke out a win against the Beavers.On Tuesday, the Trojans scored all of their runs via the home run, but this burst of offense couldn’t make up for sloppy defense.USC entered the game aiming to split both its road trip stretch and its season series against the Waves. The Trojans took the field in Malibu with a 3-4 record over their last seven away games, and in March, they suffered a 9-4 comeback defeat against the Waves at Dedeaux Field.A weary Trojan team wasn’t about to catch any breaks in the last game before its anticipated homecoming.The Waves won the last game they played on Sunday, April 21, before taking a week off for final exams and graduation. Aside from an extended rest period, Pepperdine had the advantage on the mound, sending out strong Sunday starter Aaron Brown, who looked to tack on another win to his consecutive five-game streak. USC, on the other hand, matched with its midweek starter, junior Sean Silva.The Waves jumped ahead early against Silva, putting a two-run dent in the scoreboard in the first frame. Three consecutive singles loaded the bases and the Trojans narrowly escaped a big inning by soliciting three ground balls that produced only two runs.Senior right fielder Greg Zebrack did some early damage control and answered with a home run to left field the very next half inning. Silva, however, was unable to suppress a retaliation effort by the Waves, who matched with a home run of their own.The Trojan offense, eager to break its drought at Oregon State, refused to be quieted for long.In the top of the third inning, freshman Timmy Robinson singled and demonstrated some heads-up baseball, advancing to third on a wild pick-off throw. Senior second baseman Adam Landecker tied the game at three with a timely two-run home run. Zebrack would add his second home run of the game in the top of the sixth, but the one-run lead was short-lived.In the seventh inning, Trojans let the game completely unravel. It was the Murphy’s Law of innings: anything that could go wrong did.Sophomore Nigel Nootbaar came in as relief and quickly found himself in a bases-loaded situation. He almost escaped the jam unscathed but the Waves capitalized on sloppy defense and poor pitching by the bullpen. Nootbaar and freshman Brooks Kriske allowed Pepperdine to excel thanks to three walks, two fielding errors, a wild pitch, a passed ball, a hit batsman — and only two hits. All runs by the relievers were unearned.To make matters worse, USC committed its third error of the game in the very next inning when Zebrack collided with Robinson in the outfield and dropped what should have been a routine fly ball.In the end, the five-run deficit was too much to overcome, even with junior Kevin Swick’s home run in the bottom of the ninth.USC heads home after a disappointing 3-5 road trip and amid a four-game skid. The loss is particularly hard to stomach, but the Trojans will have to forget and move on as they take on TCU on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
