Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has urged Marcus Rashford to study the game of Ruud van Nistelrooy. Rashford held informal talks with the agency’s representatives in Miami last weekend Scholes says no-one knew where the back of the net was like Van Nistelrooy. And Scholes reckons Rashford should take note. He said: “I played No 10 with Ruud for a season – and I loved it. He’s just a ruthless, ruthless goalscorer. He just lived for scoring goals. “Whenever he did score or didn’t score, the first thing he would do when we got on the team bus after the game was see if Thierry Henry scored. “And if Henry had scored he wouldn’t talk to anybody for the full trip home because he was so engrossed in being the leading goalscorer, not just at United but in the league, in the world, everywhere. “I loved the way Ruud finished as well. I played with some unbelievable centre forwards. You are thinking Cole, Dwight Yorke, Sheringham, Solskjaer. There are loads. read also:Rashford: Honour to work with Giggs and Rooney “There are some unbelievable goalscorers.

NORTH SOUND, Antigua, (CMC) – Sunil Ambris struck his fourth half-century in five innings as Windward Islands Volcanoes broke their three-game losing skid with a comfortable five-wicket victory over West Indies Under-19s here yesterday.Chasing an uncomplicated 208 for victory at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium, Volcanoes got home in the 41st over with the right-handed Ambris hitting an unbeaten 67.Opener Johnson Charles hit a typically breezy 41 while Shane Shillingford finished on 25 not out.Leg-spinner Mikyle Louis left his mark with two for 45.Matthew Patrick had earlier top-scored with 45 while fellow opener Shian Brathwaite got 42, as West Indies Under-19s rallied to 207 for nine off 50 overs.Seamer Kyle Mayers produced a superb spell of four for 38 from his 10 overs and former West Indies off-spinner Shane Shillingford was equally excellent with three for 22 from 10 overs.Sent in, the Under-19s flourished early on as Patrick and Brathwaite put on an excellent 88 off 91 balls for the first wicket.The left-handed Patrick faced 91 balls and counted two fours and a six while Brathwaite hit three fours and two sixes in a 60-ball knock.Once Brathwaite was bowled by Shillingford in the 23rd over, the Under-19s lost four wickets for 25 runs to slump to 113 for four in the 21st over.However, a 47-run fifth wicket partnership between Shamar Springer (29) and Kirstan Kallicharan (24) propped up the innings and ensured the Under-19s got beyond 200.In reply, Charles got Volcanoes off to a brisk start, adding 43 off 44 balls for the first wicket with Tyrone Theophile who made 19.The right-handed Charles, who stroked five fours and a six, also put on 33 for the second wicket with Devon Smith (12) before three wickets fell for 30 runs, to leave Volcanoes tentatively placed on 106 for four in the 23rd over.Ambris then came to his side’s aid, anchoring two partnerships to erase any doubt about the result. He faced 78 balls and counted six fours, putting on 62 for the fifth wicket with Kavem Hodge (19) and another 42 in an unbroken sixth wicket stand with Shillingford.Gaining a promotion in the order, Shillingford made it count, whacking a four and two sixes in a 16-ball cameo to deflate the Under-19s challenge.WINDIES UNDER-19sS Brathwaite b Shillingford 42M Patrick c wkp Ambris b Shillingford 45B Yadram c and b Sebastien 8+E Stewart c wkp Ambris b Shillingford 3S Springer c Sebastien b Mayers 29K Kallicharan c wkp Ambris b Mayers 24K Paul c wkp Ambris b Mayers 0J Bishop c and b Mayers 11M Louis not out 9J Spencer b Williams 2O McCoy not out 12Extras (w22) 22TOTAL (9 wkts, 50 overs) 207Fall of wickets: 1-88, 2-99, 3-107, 4-113, 5-160, 6-160, 7-177, 8-186, 9-189.Bowling: Matthew 5-0-25-0 (w4), Mayers 10-0-38-4 (w1), Williams 9-0-44-1 (w8), Hodge 6-1-38-0, Shillingford 10-1-22-3, Sebastien 10-0-40-1 (w9).VOLCANOESJ Charles c Bishop b Louis 41T Theophile b Paul 19D Smith c Springer b Bishop 12A Fletcher c wkp Stewart b Louis 13+S Ambris not out 67K Hodge c Brathwaite b Patrick 19S Shillingford not out 25Extras (b4, w7, nb3) 14TOTAL (5 wkts, 40.2 overs) 210Did not bat: *L Sebastien, K Mayers, K Williams, M Matthews,Fall of wickets: 1-43, 2-76, 3-82, 4-106, 5-168.Bowling: McCoy 3-0-22-0 (nb2), Paul 8-0-52-1 (w3, nb1), Bishop 10-1-36-1 (w2), Louis 9.2-0-45-2, Kallicharan 3-0-14-0, Yadram 2-0-14-0, Spencer 3-0-15-0, Patrick 2-0-8-1 (w1).Points: Volcanoes 4, Under-19s.

Associated Press March 15, 2020 4:05 p.m.NCAA vice president of men’s basketball Dan Gavitt says brackets won’t be created for the NCAA men’s and women’s basketball tournaments that were canceled due to coronavirus concerns. Gavit says he made the decision and it was supported by basketball committees.“There is not an authentic way to produce tournament fields and brackets at this point without speculating,” Gavitt said Sunday, the day the men’s NCAA Tournament field had been scheduled to be announced. “And, that isn’t fair to the teams that would be positively or negatively impacted by manufacturing March Madness. More importantly, in light of this global health crisis, I believe we need to keep college basketball in perspective.”College basketball’s showcase was canceled on Thursday, leading to suggestions from coaches and athletic directors to release brackets for the event even though it won’t happen this year.“Players and coaches want to see their school name on the bracket,” Gavitt acknowledges. “Members of the media want to dissect matchups. Bracketologists want to compare the work of the committees versus what they’ve predicted. Fans are curious for those same reasons. All of us want something to fill the void we’re feeling. However, anything less than a credible process is inconsistent with the tradition of the NCAA basketball championships. … There will always be an asterisk next to the 2020 NCAA men’s and women’s basketball championships regardless if brackets are released.” Gremio players and coaching staff arrived at the Rio Grande do Sul state championship game wearing the masks.

The deadline is June 30, then we’ll eventually see if we need to exceed that.”He adds, “We’ll propose to UEFA that they postpone the Euros.” The men’s top-tier Brazilian championship is scheduled to begin in April. The decision does not affect state championships currently being played. Some matches were held without any fans this weekend in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. São Paulo, Rio and other state soccer bodies are set to decide Monday on their course of action.___2:50 p.m.The New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority says all of the ski areas and venues that it manages will suspend operation at the close of business Sunday. When asked what his biggest baseball concern was, Daniels responded: “I don’t really have one to be honest with you, my head’s not even there. It might have been a few days ago, but it’s been pretty solely focused on making sure everyone’s got what they need, and everyone’s family is taken care of, and that we can get everybody home. We’re going to have plenty of time to figure out the baseball piece.”___6:24 p.m.Keeneland announced it will be closed to all non-essential guests starting Monday.

THE postponed Tokyo Olympics will be “scrapped” if they cannot take place in 2021, says Games chief Yoshiro Mori.Tokyo 2020 is now scheduled to run from 23 July to 8 August next year after being delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.Health experts have cast doubt on whether the Games could be held next summer without a vaccine or effective drugs to treat Covid-19 being found.When asked if the event could be moved again to 2022, Mori replied: “No.”“In that case, the Olympics will be scrapped,” he added.However, the Tokyo 2020 president said he was confident the rescheduled Games would go ahead.“This Olympics would be much more valuable than any Olympics in the past if we could go ahead with it after winning this battle,” he told Nikkan Sports.“We have to believe this, otherwise our hard work and efforts will not be rewarded.”Tokyo 2020: ‘The right decision, made just in time’The president of Japan’s medical association, Yoshitake Yokokura, said on Tuesday it will be “difficult” to hold the Olympics in 2021 without vaccines or effective drugs being developed.“I am not saying that Japan should or shouldn’t host the Olympics, but that it would be difficult to do so,” he said.“If the infections are under control in Japan, it will still be difficult to hold the games unless the pandemic is over in the rest of the world.”Most experts think a vaccine is likely to become available by mid-2021, though others have warned there is no guarantee a vaccine can be successfully developed.Mori added that the Olympics and Paralympics – which will now run from 24 August to 5 September 2021 – could share opening and closing ceremonies as a way of cutting costs.“Given that the situation has dramatically changed, we have to review key areas, including the ceremonies,” he said.“It’s going to a considerable cut in costs and a big message of victory against the global crisis – but it’s not easy.”However, Mori said he had not yet asked the International Olympic Committee and International Paralympic Committee whether they would agree to such a plan, and acknowledged that tickets had already been sold for the separate opening and closing ceremonies.(BBC Sport)
South Africa’s van Niekerk Cracks Michael Johnson’s 17-year world recordDuro Ikhazuagbe in RioJamaican Usain Bolt became the first athlete to win three straight 100m gold medals at the Olympic Games as he stormed home in 9.81 seconds here in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.Bolt, 29, beat America’s Justin Gatlin (9.89) to the precious medal to follow up his titles at Beijing 2008 and London 2012. Gatlin got off from the block with a burst and it took Bolt until around 85m for the Jamaican to catch him and leave him training.Bolt is now on course for the sprint ‘treble treble’ with the 200m and the 4x100m relay to come later.Canada’s Andre De Grasse picked the bronze in 9.91.Speaking after the race Bolt said his ambition of joining sports greats is about to manifest. “Somebody said I can become immortal. Two more medals to go and I can sign off. Immortal.”He however admitted that he really could not go as fast as he would have expected. “It was brilliant. I didn’t go so fast but I’m so happy I won. I told you guys I was going to do it,” joked Bolt amid back slapping and hand pumping from his Jamaican brothers.The night however did not go to the Jamaican legendary sprint king. South African Wayde van Niekerk broke a 17-year world record to win 400m gold in 43.03 seconds.Van Niekerk’s 400m time was 0.15 seconds quicker than the previous world record set by Michael Johnson in Seville in 1999.In tennis, Great Britain’s Wimbledon champion Andy Murray retained his Olympic title with an epic win over Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro in the men’s singles final.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Arsene Wenger has dismissed suggestions he could be about to retire after 20 years as Arsenal manager.Speaking at a press conference ahead of his side’s FA Cup fourth-round tie with Burnley, Wenger, 66, hinted that he could extend his stay at Emirates Stadium having won three Premier League titles – in 1998, 2002 and 2004 – and six FA Cups at the London club.Wenger is easily the longest serving manager in the Premier League, and could yet challenge Sir Alex Ferguson’s 26-year stint at Manchester United if decides to head another rebuilding job at the club heading towards the age of 70.Ferguson departed the scene as United manager at the age of 71 in 2013, but media reports suggest Wenger is on the verge of signing a new two-year extension to his contract which would run until 2019.Wenger is widely credited with helping manage the club’s finances properly while they moved from Highbury to Emirates Stadium a decade ago.The £470m cost of the move to the Emirates affected Wenger’s ability to compete in the transfer market while the construction costs were repaid.“There’s 18 months left, that’s an eternity. I’m committed to this club,” said Wenger. “I don’t imagine at this moment to manage anywhere else. Will I stop working once I stop managing at a competitive level? No, I will always try to work if I have health and try to be useful.”Maybe it will be a different level. It could be managing kids or developing young players but I will not run for FIFA.”Arsenal are chasing a third straight FA Cup success after lifting the trophy at Wembley in 2014 and 2015.Wenger plans to hand David Ospina a start to replace Petr Cech. New signing Mohamed Elneny could feature with Francis Coquelin is also in line to start. “We have to earn the right to qualify. I will make some changes for the game.”–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoyFMSports. Our hashtag is #JoySports
