Given his rapid progression at Arsenal, capped this month by a new long-term contract and the inheritance of the club’s feted number 7 shirt, there have been whispers of an England call-up and suggestions he could even make Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the delayed Euro 2020 tournament.Nigeria have previous turning the heads of players who’ve worked their way through the ranks at St George’s Park.Ex-Gunner Alex Iwobi switched allegiance in 2015 and has since featured in the 2018 World Cup and the 2019 African Cup of Nations.When asked about the situation, Arteta said it’s not something he’ll get involved in unless the player asks for his advice.“If I get asked a question [by him], I can give an opinion,” the Spaniard said. “Up to now, he’s not come to me with that. “I’ll leave total independence to the players and the families because normally they have a big say because of their background and the culture and where they are coming from.”Put to him that the teenager had the quality to play for either side, he added: “Absolutely, and he’s very clever to make the right decision as well.”As things stand, international football is suspended while domestic and continental leagues finish their seasons.Matches are due to start again in September at which point Nigeria could pounce.Tags: ArsenalBukayo SakaEnglandMiikel ArtetaNigerialast_img read more

first_img Head of recruitment Iain Moody was replaced by Kazakh 23-year-old Alisher Apsalyamov in October, and Mackay will have little option but to sell if Tan refuses to be swayed on his insistence there will be no budget for the Scot to utilise. Chief executive Simon Lim released a statement outlining the stance on spending in which he claimed Tan was jolted by Mackay’s announcement that he would seek backing from the board for squad strengthening. Lim said it was Tan’s view that the club overspent in the transfer market by £15million ahead of the season. “Tan Sri Vincent Tan was extremely upset to read quotes from the manager concerning the possibility of new recruits, before he had been informed whether funds would be made available,” Lim said. “He believes that doing so unfairly raises supporter expectations, placing unnecessary pressure on the club. “His view is that due to the funds already committed, including the originally authorised summer transfer budget of £35m that rose to £50m in total, including add-ons, the manager has been fully supported. “The overspending of £15m has upset Tan Sri greatly, resulting in the removal on Iain Moody as head of recruitment. As such, he has stated that not a single penny will be made available in January. “Having been the highest-spending promoted club and the seventh-highest spender in the Premier League last summer, the owner believes that the manager has been given the best possible chance of retaining our Premier League status.” The Bluebirds boss had claimed at the weekend he hoped to bring three new players to the club to fortify his team for the second half of their maiden Barclays Premier League season. Cardiff beat West Brom 1-0 on Saturday to strengthen their bid for survival in the top flight, but transfer spending has been in the spotlight at the club before this season, and owner Vincent Tan’s eagerness to rein in spending has surfaced once again. Cardiff brought players including Steven Caulker, Gary Medel, Kevin Theophile-Catherine and Andreas Cornelius to the club during the summer. Mackay’s team stand four points outside the relegation zone, and Mackay was hoping he would receive the board’s cheque-book backing midway through the campaign. The fact Malaysian businessman Tan, through Lim, has indicated that will not be happening may be of some concern to the Scot, in his third season at the club. Speaking at the weekend, Mackay said: “It would be great if we can bring in three quality additions to the squad. “I would look to strengthen all three departments in terms of a defender, a midfielder and an attacking player. “I will talk to my chairman (about January) who will then discuss it with his board of directors and our owner and I will take my lead from them. “It’s up to them then what financially they want to spend in January. I’ve got my lists of players, whether they be permanent targets or loans for various positions. We’ve got to try and strengthen again. “We are a first-time club so to speak. Everyone barring two other clubs has got a massive head start on us in terms of quality. “They might only need to bring in one or two over a season. We had to bring in a group of eight players which was going to give us the chance to survive. “You have a choice, do you invest knowing you have a really good chance of staying up or do you invest knowing you might go down and then have to build again?” Looking at the January market, Mackay added: “People are leaving clubs for different reasons and overall you have to be careful. It’s about bringing in another layer of quality to add to what we’ve got. I need to bring in guys who are going to add to that.” Mackay joined Cardiff in June 2011, and after missing out on promotion in his first season at the club, when his team suffered a play-off semi-final defeat to West Ham, he led the Welsh side to the 2012/13 Championship title. Cardiff manager Malky Mackay has been told “not a single penny” will be allocated to him for January transfer window signings. Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgBrittney Sykes broke out earlier in the month against Loyola (Md.) and hasn’t slowed down since.The freshman guard followed up her 15-point day against the Greyhounds by scoring in double figures in two of her next three games, culminating with her first career 20-point performance and double-double as Syracuse (12-1) routed Boise State (6-6) 87-48 in front of 776 in the Carrier Dome Sunday.“The key for her is to just straighten out her drives and take it to the basket because she’s a load to take on when she’s getting to the basket with her athleticism,” Orange head coach Quentin Hillsman said.Sykes entered the season with lofty expectations as part of the Orange’s highly touted freshman class. After scoring 11 points in her debut, she faded into the background on a deep SU roster. But since Dec. 8, she’s been dominant on both ends of the floor.Not only has the freshman emerged as one of Syracuse’s most dynamic scorers, averaging 15.3 points over the four-game stretch, but she’s also thrived on the defensive end, turning in a pair of five-steal performances and 15 total, excelling in Syracuse’s full-court press.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut on Sunday, what Sykes displayed most was her explosiveness—her ability to score in bunches.“I’ve got to leave her alone a little bit, let her play,” Hillsman said. “Understand that she’s a freshman, but when you have a player of her caliber and the way she can make plays, you tend to be a little tough on her.”After the Broncos opened the game with back-to-back baskets, the Orange battled back to build a 13-point lead. Things were getting out of hand for BSU, and Sykes broke the game open. Six straight points from the freshman gave SU a 31-14 lead with less than eight minutes remaining in the half.Syracuse continued its run into the locker room, where it led 46-19, and back out onto the court for the second half, ultimately building its lead to 53-19 less than two minutes into the second period.The Orange methodically built its lead for the remainder of the game. But as SU approached a 40-point lead, it was another mini-explosion from Sykes that put Syracuse over the top.Sykes scored on a breakaway layup after a steal by guard Cornelia Fondren to put the Orange up by 38, and just seconds later Sykes came away with a steal of her own – one of three of the day – before dropping in another layup to give SU a 75-35 lead. It was one last statement for the freshman before conference play begins Saturday against Marquette in Milwaukee that she’ll be a force to be reckoned with in the Big East.“I was really tough on her, but I had to settle herself down and let her make some mistakes,” Hillsman said. “Now she’s making less and less mistakes and she’s playing really physical, really aggressive.” Comments Published on December 30, 2012 at 11:13 pm Contact David: | @DBWilson2 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgMORE: Joe Buck looks to stay fresh during quarantineBut now Buck has a request: Stop sending him sex tapes.In an interview with KMOX in St. Louis, Buck revealed that he has received several videos on the more amorous side, and that he will not be posting or calling play-by-play for these.”Yeah, I’ve received quite a few,” Buck said. “And you have to be careful. You have to go through these videos like the Zapruder film because you’re worried that there’s going to be something in the background, there’s going to be something hidden like a Highlights Magazine that we should not focus on, but it’s still there and it becomes some internet thing where I put my voice to something that I shouldn’t have.  Joe Buck’s social media experiment, in which he does play-by-play for videos that followers send in of their daily lives, has been a huge success so far for the broadcaster during this coronavirus quarantine.So far the videos have ranged from golf trick shots, to marble racing, to a balding hairline, and many of them are infinitely entertaining with Buck’s particular brand of commentary.

Maybe later in life, but not now. I look at these videos very carefully and pick the ones that seem the most wholesome to put my voice to.”Who knows, if this quarantine goes on much longer and he runs out of videos, we may soon see a very different side of Joe Buck’s play-by-play.last_img read more
