According to Sportitalia, Napoli confirmed that they were at the final stage of the contract paperwork for the 21-year-old striker. Despite the reports in France of a deal worth €81m, in Italy, they have never budged from the €60m mark and that does seem more realistic for Napoli. Lille are likely to also accept a player as part of the deal and reports pointed at the third-choice goalkeeper, Orestis Karnezis. The salary seems to have been agreed at a five-year contract worth €3.5m per season plus another €0.5m in bonuses. It had been confirmed that Osimhen passed his medical last Saturday in Rome, and the whole world has been waiting to see the player unveil as soon as possible. Initially, Friday(today) was fixed for the official unveiling of the player but the paperwork process seems to be moving on snail speed. read also:‘With consistency, hard work Osimhen could surpass world best players’last_img read more

Pollard’s Adelaide Strikers suffer fourth loss of big Bash season

first_imgMELBOURNE, Australia (CMC) – Kieron Pollard failed to make an impact and Adelaide Strikers suffered their fourth loss of the Big Bash League season, when Melbourne Stars edged to a two-wicket victory yesterday.Pollard conceded 17 runs in two wicket-less overs, as the Stars successfully chased 153 for victory in the 22nd match of the tournament at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.Discarded Australia fast bowler Ben Hilfenhaus notched the Stars over the finish line, when he chipped a delivery from medium-fast bowler Michael Neser through square leg for a single with three deliveries remaining.Earlier, Pollard struck a couple of boundaries in 16 from 13 balls before Hilfenhaus had him caught at mid-on in the penultimate over from a miscued pull, as the Strikers reached 152 for eight from their allocation of 20 overs, after they were put in to bat.The result meant that the Stars now have six points – the same number of points as Perth Scorchers – but they are third in the standings, due to a superior net run rate.The Strikers, whose squad also includes the Barbados-born, England all-rounder Christopher Jordan, are one of four teams with four points. They are however, sixth in the standings, due to net run rate.Brisbane Heat, whose squad includes West Indies Twenty20 star leg-spinner Samuel Badree, and Sydney Sixers are the current front-runners with eight points each – but the Heat have the superior net run rate.The BBL continues today, when Badree and the Heat face the Scorchers at the Gabba, while Pollard and the Strikers have to wait until next Monday to see further action when they host the Melbourne Renegades, whose line-up includes star West Indies spinner Sunil Narine, at the Adelaide Oval.last_img read more

Ronaldo Scores Incredible Overhead Kick in Real’s 3-0 Crushing of Juventus

first_imgThe Italian side had chances to equalise in a decent first half, although Toni Kroos went close to doubling Real’s lead when he hit the crossbar with a 25-yard effort.Then came one of the great Champions League moments. Dani Carvajal lifted a cross to the Portuguese, who soared in the air and sent a flying acrobatic kick past Gianluigi Buffon, who had no chance.Such was the brilliance of the strike that Juventus fans stood up to applaud the goal that probably ended their hopes of going through.It got even worse for the Turin side, who lost last year’s final to Real, as Paulo Dybala was shown a second yellow card for a high boot in the chest of Carvajal.And Marcelo effectively booked Real’s place in the last four when he played a one-two with Ronaldo before scoring from close range.At the age of 33, Ronaldo no longer has the pace or much impact minute to minute in a match.But, reinvented as an orthodox striker, he is in one of the greatest goalscoring streaks in football history – 25 goals in his past 13 games for club and country.He has now scored 16 goals in his past 10 Champions League games – 14 goals this season and a double in last year’s final against Juventus.It took him only two minutes and 47 seconds to open the scoring in Turin, when he poked home Isco’s low left-wing cross from six yards out.He almost had a second when he smashed a ball across goal after good work from Karim Benzema.His magic moment came in a move which he helped create himself. Giorgio Chiellini poked a ball past his own keeper Buffon, which Ronaldo kept in. He found Lucas Vazquez, whose shot was saved by Buffon. Unfortunately for Juventus the ball ran to Carvajal, whose cross was dramatically converted by Ronaldo.The Portuguese, who only touched the ball 49 times in 90 minutes, had two chances for a hat-trick, first when he forced a save from Buffon from 16 yards and then when he shot over when totally unmarked 10 yards out from Vazquez’s cross.He is not just a goalscorer though, and set up Marcelo’s goal – as well as laying the ball off to Mateo Kovacic, who hit the post.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUECristiano Ronaldo scored twice, including a stunning bicycle kick, as Real Madrid took control of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final against Juventus with a convincing first-leg win last night.The Real Madrid forward made history with his opener when he prodded home Isco’s cross – becoming the first player to score in 10 consecutive Champions League games.last_img read more

High Court stands by DCMS orders on EuroMillions third-party betting

first_img StumbleUpon UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020 Share Submit Ministers expected to raise National Lottery age limit August 17, 2020 Related Articles Camelot aims for ‘Big September’ supporting a high street recovery August 26, 2020 Share Operators of digital lottery syndicates have been handed a severe blow by the High Court of England & Wales, which has rejected the combined appeal of Lottoland and Multi Lotto UK to allow bets on ‘EuroMillions’ draws in other countries.  In February of this year, Lottoland and Multi Lotto sanctioned a high court appeal against the UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sports (DCMS) and its ‘interested parties’ – the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) and National Lottery operator Camelot UK. The digital claimants demanded that DCMS remove 2018 amendments introduced to the ‘Gambling Act 2005’, which would prohibit betting on the outcome of non-UK EuroMillions lottery draws, regulations that were subsequently enforced from 6 April 2018.  Established under the mandate of the ‘National Lottery Act 1993’, and reinforced by the Gambling Act 2005, no third party is allowed to offer betting services, markets or promotions on National Lottery outcomes.  Adhering to UK laws on the National Lottery, remote-based operators such as Lottoland and Multi Lotto have taken bets for EuroMillions – a pan-European lottery game that is not operated by Camelot or governed by the UKGC, but for the outcome of non-UK draws.However, the DCMS approved UKGC regulations that closed this loophole – namely offering bets on “the outcome of a non-UK EuroMillions draw or on the result of a EuroMillions lottery, regardless of the name given to that lottery or how that lottery is described in any jurisdiction”. Lottoland and Multi Lotto claimed that DCMS and the UKGC’s amendments had denied their enterprises from offering a service that is controlled beyond their regulatory remits, thus unfairly favouring Camelot services. The DCMS and UKGC justified the amendments stating that synthetic lotteries undermined the position of Camelot as operator of the National Lottery and UK distributor of EuroMillions tickets, raising money for good causes. Moving forward with their appeal, Lottoland and Multi Lotto representatives asked UK justices to review three underlying arguments against DCMS and its interested parties: Did the 2017/18 amendments breach European Union business laws on member state governments restricting enterprise services – set out under the guiding provisions of ‘The Treaty of a Functioning European Union –TFEU’.  
Did DCMS conduct a fair consultation on the EuroMillions amendments – impartial towards the UKGC and Camelot’s existing positions?  
Could the claimants change the ‘locus (point of appeal)’ bringing their claim to a new judiciary outside of UK courts?  Reviewed by Lord Justice Green and Justice Gross, the UK High Court judged that the amendments had been fair and within DCMS remit as the new regulations did not impose an unlawful restriction on freedom to provide services. The High Court justices detailed that DCMS could maintain its amendments on the ‘grounds of protecting recognised public policy initiatives’ such as securing National Lottery funds. In addition, the High Court determined that individual ‘member-state gambling policy is not a harmonised legal discipline’ across EU jurisdictions, allowing DCMS and its associates to carry-out policy corrections/amendments. With regards to conducting ‘a fair consultation’, the High Court ruled that DCMS had presented a ‘legitimate policy basis’ for its new regulations, that had fulfilled the requirements of an ‘overall proportionality assessment’ required for legislative approval. Concluding its judgement, the High Court justices, detailed that claimants could move to change court locus granting permission for future judicial reviews. However, locus appeals would merit no legal mandate for changes to the approved regulations… which will simply be dismissed.last_img read more

Fellaini winner shocks Man Utd

first_imgRobin van Persie started life at Manchester United with a defeat as Everton produced an outstanding performance to deservedly claim victory at Goodison Park.Sir Alex Ferguson’s £24m signing from Arsenal emerged as a 67th-minute substitute – but he made a quiet introduction and was powerless to prevent United starting the Premier League season with a defeat – their first since they lost at Chelsea in 2004.And it was fitting that Everton’s winning goal came from the outstanding Marouane Fellaini, who tormented Manchester United’s makeshift defence throughout a thunderous evening on Merseyside.The giant Belgian’s towering 57th minute header from Leighton Baines’ corner finally ended the defiance of United keeper David de Gea, who had kept Everton at bay with a series of outstanding first half saves.Leon Osman also struck the crossbar – and when Van Persie was finally introduced Everton had an iron grip on the game and only looked like conceding the advantage Fellaini had given them when Phil Jagielka cleared off the line from Tom Cleverley.Everton have traditionally been slow starters but in this opening game they dominated United for spells, with keeper Tim Howard only being troubled by the occasional effort from Wayne Rooney. Goodison Park celebrated the victory noisily at the final whistle, leaving Ferguson to contemplate a lacklustre performance undermined by a reshuffled rearguard in which Michael Carrick never settled in his role as emergency central defender alongside returning captain Nemanja Vidic. United were without Rio Ferdinand, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans – and how Everton exploited the weakness.Ferguson eased Van Persie into life at Old Trafford with a place on the bench, entrusting attacking duties to Rooney and England youngster Danny Welbeck.United were grateful to keeper De Gea for a performance of defiance and athleticism that kept his side on terms as they were terrorised by the power and presence of Fellaini.The young Spaniard stretched to turn over Steven Pienaar’s header then dived to turn away the South African’s shot as Everton applied pressure. He did even better to save Osman’s shot on the turn and leap to claw away a free-kick from Baines that was destined for the top corner. United had opportunities of their own but they were rarities, Howard saving twice from Rooney and Welbeck rolling a low shot wide as United claimed a penalty when he tangled with Jagielka.United’s biggest escape came just after the interval when Fellaini once more headed into the path of Osman, who did beat De Gea but held his head in anguish as his effort rattled the crossbar.Everton were not to be denied and finally got the lead they so deserved. The source was no surprise as Fellaini – who had simply been too much for Carrick – rose above him to power in Baines’ corner.United gave Everton their most anxious moment after 66 minutes when Jagielka cleared off the line from Cleverley and seconds later Van Persie entered the fray in place of Welbeck. However, with Jagielka and Sylvain Distin magnificent, Everton were in no mood to see their resistance broken and they claimed a win their efforts merited. Everton manager David Moyes: “I’m really pleased because we performed ever so well. We’ve often started the season slowly but just because we’ve won one game doesn’t mean we’ve had a good start – as it would not have been a bad start had we lost.“Marouane Fellaini is a really good player. We can play him behind the striker, in the middle or because of his power in the air we can play him as a defensive one as well.“The only time we had a really good start here we ended in the Champions League places. I don’t know if that’s possible but it would be nice for us not to be playing catch up.“David de Gea made some great saves. In the build-up it was all about Manchester United and what they could do – I felt people called that wrong because we are a tough team to beat at Goodison Park.“We defended really well when we had to. Phil Jagielka was outstanding.”last_img read more
