Klopp: Liverpool will snub FA Cup replay against Shrewsbury
After having to play a very young team against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup Quarter-Final due to requirements to play in the Club World Cup two days later, Liverpool are looking at another scheduling problem for them.After Shrewsbury came back to draw 2-2 against Liverpool in the FA Cup Fourth Round, the replays are set for the first week of February, either the 4th or 5th of February. Jurgen Klopp has said that he won’t manage Liverpool against Shrewsbury in their FA Cup Fourth Round replay. The match is scheduled for the first week of February which is in the Premier League’s new mid-season break.Advertisement Loading… Read Also: Adama Traore: Liverpool are the best in Europe“We will not be there and it will be the kids. I know that is not very popular…The Premier League asked us to respect the winter break, and that is what we will do.”“We have to respect the players’ welfare…They need a rest, a mental rest and physical rest. That is what the winter break is about…We had to make these decisions before because players have families.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 However, the new Premier League mid-season break is set to take place from the 2nd of February to the 16th of February. The mid-season break came after countless arguments for years regarding England’s lack of winter break that occurs in the majority of the European Leagues.Speaking about the schedule congestion, Klopp was angry about it, hoping for a break for his already fatigued players.The replay will be Liverpool’s 41st game of the Season, an average of a game every five days, and a game just under every four days for the past two months. Liverpool have been dealt a very poor hand in the Domestic Cups this Season.

Brazil soccer great Carlos Alberto dead at 72
(REUTERS)-Carlos Alberto, who scored one of the greatest goals in World Cup history while captaining Brazil to glory in the 1970 final against Italy, has died aged 72 following a heart attack.The marauding right back scored his team’s fourth goal in a 4-1 win over Italy in Mexico’s Azteca Stadium, a thumping drive that ended a move involving eight players, before hoisting the Jules Rimet trophy as Brazil won the title for the third time.“I am saddened by the death of my friend and brother Carlos Alberto, our beloved Captain, and I remember the times that we were together at Santos, Brazil and the (New York) Cosmos, where we formed a winning partnership,” Pele said in one of the many tributes from former greats.Carlos Alberto was a classy defender who played for Fluminense, Santos, Flamengo and the Cosmos and earned the nickname ‘The Captain’ for his leadership qualities.He won his first titles at Fluminense in his home city of Rio de Janeiro.However, his best days were at Santos where, alongside his friend Pele, he won two first division titles and five Sao Paulo state trophies.The full back was also one of the first major football talents to play in the U.S.,when he joined the Cosmos.“We’re deeply saddened by the loss of Carlos Alberto, a legendary player and wonderful person,” The New York club said on Twitter. “He’ll always remain part of the Cosmos family.”LEADING ROLEAfter returning to Brazil as a coach, he led Flamengo to the Brazilian first division title in 1983 and Fluminense to the Rio de Janeiro state championship in 1984.On retiring from the game,Carlos Alberto worked as a commentator and brand ambassador, but will always be remembered for his leading role in the 1970 Brazil side, which is often referred to as the greatest football team of all time.He captained a group of players who went to Mexico,with little time to gel,and under a new manager.Carlos Alberto was a natural leader, even in a side that boasted all-time greats such as Tostao, Gerson, Rivellino and Jairzinho as well as Pele.Many of the players were captains at their clubs but they preferred to be led by Carlos Alberto, who had poise and presence and was not averse to dressing down his more celebrated teammates.Tributes poured in from around the football world with football’s governing body FIFA calling the defender a “born leader” and the Brazilian Football Confederation announcing a minute’s silence before this weekend’s fixtures.“Carlos Alberto Torres was an example of guts and leadership,” Brazil’s President Michel Temer said on Twitter. “I’m saddened by the loss of the captain who led Brazil to their third World Cup win.”

Defense holds strong, Gordon carries Badgers rest of way to statement win
The Wisconsin football team has struggled in important games recently, but Saturday it found the right answers against No. 16 Nebraska.However, the game didn’t start clean for the No. 20 Badgers (8-2 overall, 5-1 Big Ten), as they allowed three of the first four Cornhusker drives to start on their side of the field. UW wide receiver Kenzel Doe fumbled on the Badgers’ first offensive possession, and a short punt by Bart Houston put the ball on UW’s 43-yard line for the Huskers’ second drive. Wisconsin’s fourth drive resulted in another turnover, this time by Melvin Gordon, which put Nebraska deep in Badgers’ territory again at the UW 30-yard line.Nebraska converted the good field position and turnovers into a 17-3 advantage with just 54 seconds gone in the second quarter. Coupled with a offense that had recorded just 82 yards up until that point—42 of which came on one run from Melvin Gordon— Wisconsin was in a tight spot.But after allowing 93 total yards and 17 points through the first quarter and change, the Wisconsin defense buckled down and shut down the Nebraska offense the rest of the way to help spur the 59-24 shellacking.“I’m really proud of how we responded to sudden change,” linebacker Derek Landisch said. “We got in some tough situations and that’s the game of football.”The Badgers defensive unit went on to allow just 87 more yards throughout the rest of the game after the second Huskers’ touchdown. The stark change of play had a lot to do with Wisconsin’s perseverance, which has changed since the first game of the year.“I think that says a lot about how we’ve developed throughout the year. LSU, I saw a lot of heads down, a lot of guys feeling sorry for themselves,” Landisch said. “But it was 17-3, we were all positive on the bench. We knew that once we could get good field position, we knew that we have a good shot of stopping them and that’s what happened.”Although the matchup featured two highly lauded rushing attacks, the Huskers had the better of the success on the ground through the first quarter. Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah and quarterback Tommy Armstrong combined to run an efficient option attack that led to the two touchdowns and 74 rushing yards after the first 15 minutes.But that’s when the Badgers’ defense began to clamp down, and the rushing duo managed just 12 more net yards in the final three quarters.With Armstrong struggling in the passing attack, Wisconsin increased the pressure at the line of scrimmage, which allowed little running room and a more frequent Wisconsin presence in the Huskers’ backfield.The pressure also resulted in one of the bigger plays in the game that helped shift the momentum toward Wisconsin. After UW had cut the lead to 17-10, Gordon fumbled near the midpoint of the second quarter to give the ball back to the Huskers near midfield. But this time Wisconsin defense didn’t allow the turnover to translate into any points.And four plays later, the Badgers forced a turnover of their own when defensive lineman Warren Herring stripped the ball from Nebraska running back Terrell Newby. Linebacker Joe Schobert pounced on the loose ball, and the Wisconsin offense turned the miscue into a touchdown to tie the game.The defense, which has helped the Badgers outscore opponents 139-37 in the second half this season, including 35-7 Saturday, again turned it on when Wisconsin needed it most.“It really proves to people that as the game goes along and gets in the third and fourth quarter, that our defense actually gets stronger,” linebacker Marcus Trotter said. “I’m very proud of this defense but at the same time we got a lot of work to do. We got to start faster.”Trotter and the other linebackers helped anchor a Wisconsin defense that sacked Armstrong four times throughout the contest, and more impressively forced five turnovers.The Badgers came into Saturday as the top defense in the country in terms of total yards allowed, but had struggled to create turnovers. That changed in the second half when Wisconsin forced four of the five gaffes, which helped it bury the Huskers down the stretch.According to Trotter, the defense’s performance, especially after the first quarter, was the signature performance it needed in the spotlight.“Hopefully after this game we start getting more respect nationally for our defense,” Trotter said. “I think we may be the only number one total defense in the country that never really got respect. Just with how we performed, hopefully people realize that our defense is for real.”With the defense firing on all cylinders in the final 45 minutes, it provided the necessary momentum to boost Wisconsin to an improbable turnaround. The defense also helped mask the early turnover woes from Gordon, as the Heisman hopeful rode the momentum created by the key turnover into one of the greatest single game performances in NCAA history, finishing with a NCAA major college record 408 rushing yards.The combination of a stingy defense and a potent rushing attack helped the Badgers to their first win over a ranked team since a victory against Northwestern last October. The triumph also came in the thick of the Big Ten West Division race, and marked the first win for Wisconsin where both teams were ranked since 2011.Wisconsin improved its winning streak to five games, but more importantly, the Badgers staked their claim as the front runner in the West in one of their biggest and most impressive wins in recent memory.“From the beginning of the season, there’s going to be some point where you have to face adversity, and we understand that,” Gordon said. “That’s just how the game works. We’re coached to be ready for it. [If] we get to the Big Ten Championship, [this season would] be exactly what I thought it out to be.”
ESSA relaunches as International Betting Integrity Association
Submit Real Betis selects Betway as its official shirt sponsor August 10, 2020 Betway and Dafabet grow La Liga sponsorship portfolios August 14, 2020 StumbleUpon Share Related Articles ESI Digital – No Drama Please… Esports growth should be treated as business as usual August 20, 2020 Share In a move to better reflect the global debate surrounding betting and integrity, ESSA has confirmed that it will be relaunching as the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) with immediate effect.The relaunched betting integrity body will focus upon the representation of regulated sports betting operators across 50 different brands set to provide information to its monitoring and alert platform. Khalid Ali, Secretary General of the International Betting Integrity Association, commented on the news: “The new name communicates who we are, what we do and where we want to be. The association has been active across six continents in recent years, with almost half of our alerts coming from outside of Europe. “This activity will only increase as gambling markets around the world continue to open up to regulation. The debate is global and our strategic focus must evolve in line with that.”The association currently acts as a prominent figurehead in the promotion of integrity across the regulated sports betting industry. It utilises collective action through its Monitoring & Alert Platform as a means to allow operators and industry stakeholders to report suspicious activity on its members’ betting markets.Working alongside sports bodies such as FIFA, UEFA, the TIU and the IOC, the IBIA monitors transactional activity linked to individual accounts and uses this data to collaborate with regulators in preventing corruption.Jon Russell, non-executive Chair of the association’s Board and Head of Global Trading at Betway, explained: “Our members represent a sizeable part of the worldwide regulated betting market and their business strategies reflect global ambitions. “Integrity has become a key regulatory issue in that market debate, with membership of a monitoring body a licensing requirement in some cases.” Russell added: “Betting and integrity are now inseparable and I encourage all responsible operators to join us and take advantage of the multifaceted business benefits membership brings.”
