Inter Milan out of Champions League after PSV stalemate

first_img0Shares0000Inter Milan’s Argentine forward Mauro Icardi scored on his 200th appearance for the Italian club © AFP / Miguel MEDINAMILAN, Italy, Dec 12 – Inter Milan crashed out of the Champions League on Tuesday after being held 1-1 by PSV Eindhoven at the San Siro as Group B rivals Tottenham Hotspur gained a point against Barcelona.The Serie A side needed to better Spurs’ result at the Camp Nou in order to overtake the Premier League outfit and snatch a place in the knockout rounds. Luciano Spalletti’s side thought they had done enough in the 73rd minute when captain Mauro Icardi marked his 200th game for the club by equalising Hirving Lozano’s 13th-minute opener, with Spurs a goal down in Catalonia.However Lucas Moura levelled at 1-1 for Tottenham, enabling his team to advance to the last 16 thanks to the away goal they scored in their 2-1 defeat at the San Siro.Inter lost 1-0 at Tottenham last time out, meaning Spurs go through in second place with a superior head-to-head record.“We got nervous, lost too many balls, created disorder at the tactical level and tension set in,” said Inter coach Luciano Spalletti of the former three-time winners.“We had the match we needed but didn’t capitalise on the chances we had.“As the anxiety grows, you lose sight of how to control the game.”“We could have remained more balanced and instead we let ourselves be carried away by tensions, by the public mood,” he added, as the goals from the Tottenham v Barcelona game were broadcast in the stadium.“How do you hide the result of your opponents? The public cheer.”– Painful end to Inter return –The hosts, who lifted the title in 2010 with Jose Mourinho and were returning to the competition for the first time since 2012, got off to a good start against already-eliminated PSV, coached by former AC Milan midfielder Mark van Bommel.Icardi sent in a long ball five minutes into the game which Ivan Persic got his head to but the Croatia winger’s effort clipped the post.After the initial scare PSV regrouped their defence and proved increasingly dangerous on the counter-attack.The Dutch broke through following a monstrous blunder by Inter midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah.The Ghanaian was caught in possession by Steven Bergwijn, with the ball flying across the face of goal and Lozano nodding in at the back post.Asamoah struggled throughout the first half and almost conceded a second with an accidental assist for Luuk De Jong, but Samir Handanovic rushed off his line to parry.Icardi fired wide before the break before Handanovic tipped a Bergwijn effort over the bar.PSV could thank goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet after the break when he denied Icardi, Stefan de Vrij and Keita Balde.But Icardi blasted in the equaliser midway through the second half, meeting a perfect cross from Matteo Politano to leave Zoet no chance.The Italians piled forward in search of the winner but could not break through, with substitute Lautaro Martinez sending a header over the bar late on.The Dutch club, who won the European Cup in 1988, achieved just their second point of the competition as they finished bottom of the group behind Inter who go through to the Europa League.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

The impact on your victim and his family has been significant.”During sentencing the judge also spoke of health issues faced by McCafferty, included mobility problems following hip and knee replacements, heart illness and a history of suffering from anxiety and depression.Judge Smyth also noted that McCafferty had not had an “easy” childhood, and had himself been the victim of sexual assaults over the period of a year when he was a young teenager.“You said it had not had an impact on your life… it may explain in some part the lack of empathy you have shown to your victim.” Frank Warren names four dream fights he wants to make in 2020, including Fury vs AJ The judge said McCafferty abused trust placed in him by the victim’s family Best clips, calls and talkSPORT moments of 2019, feat Hearn, McCoist and more KO KINGS MONEY center_img A former Celtic Football Club youth coach has been jailed after he pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a young teenager in a case where the court heard he had regarded it as a “bit of fun”.Jim McCafferty, 72, formerly of Raby Street in south Belfast, pleaded guilty to eight charges of sexual offences against the boy over a three-year period from December 2012-15.McCafferty had previously pleaded not guilty, but changed his plea to guilty on the day of his trial.On Monday, McCafferty re-appeared in the dock of Belfast Crown Court for sentencing.

He is a young man and this will have an impact on him for the rest of his life.“However, although extremely harrowing, he knows taking this difficult decision to report this abuse was the right choice for him to make and today we have seen his abuser brought to justice.“My son was treated with sensitivity, patience and respect by the investigating officers, and I would encourage anyone who has been the victim of sexual abuse to report it to the police.”Detective Chief Inspector Marks added her thanks to the victim and his family for coming forward.

Democrat platform encourages standards for trade agreements

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest While the Democrats’ party platform — unlike the Republicans’ — does mention the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), it’s only to say the Asia-Pacific trade agreement should include a list of standards enumerated in the plank, which generally is critical of past trade deals and urges more transparency in negotiations on future agreements.The platform, approved at the Democratic National Convention, states that Democrats will not back free trade agreements that do not support “good American jobs, raise wages and improve our national security.” Deals must include strong and enforceable labor and environmental standards, with streamlined and effective enforcement mechanisms; must crack down on unfair and illegal subsidies; should promote innovation of and access to lifesaving medicines; and should protect a free and open Internet. The United States should not enter into trade agreements that prevent it from approving rules that protect the environment, food safety or public health. Democrat congressional lawmakers who support TPP took flak from many convention delegates, particularly supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who strongly opposes the deal. But Democrat backers of TPP appear to be in the majority. A recent survey from the Chicago Council on Global Affairs found that 71% of those who support Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and 67% of Sanders supporters view trade favorably, and 74% of Clinton supporters and 56% of Sanders backers support the TPP.last_img read more

2008 Malegaon blast case: Bombay High Court nod for framing of charges

first_imgIn what may prove to be a setback to Lt. Col. Shrikant Purohit, the Bombay High Court on Tuesday refused to defer the framing of charges against all accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast case.A Bench of Justices S.S. Shinde and Mridula Bhatkar was hearing the plea filed by Lt. Col. Purohit seeking deferment in framing of charges against him and others till the issue of his sanction to prosecute is decided. On June 22, the High Court admitted Lt. Col. Purohit’s petition challenging the State government’s sanction to prosecute him and the rejection of his discharge plea before the special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act court in December 2017.However, National Investigation Agency’s (NIA) counsel Sandesh Patil said that on directions from the Supreme Court, it would be appropriate to allow the lower court to decide on the sanction.The lower court is expected to frame charges against all the accused on September 5.last_img read more

Uganda court strikes down antigay law opposed by scientists

first_imgAn antigay law passed earlier this year in Uganda despite the protests of activists and scientists has been nullified by one of the nation’s courts, which ruled that the legislation had been improperly approved by the country’s Parliament. Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni had justified the law by citing findings from a special scientific committee on homosexuality convened by the government, even though, as Science reported in February, researchers on that panel said their work was being misrepresented and several resigned in protest. The legislation could be passed again, or the government may appeal the ruling to the country’s Supreme Court.last_img read more
