We have a very small group of players giving everything they can.“If we make it, it will be more based on fantastic empathy within the group.“It’s easy to have a good group when the situation is amazing and more difficult when the situation is hard.“But I am with the boys — and hopefully can help them.”Leipzig are dreaming of reaching their first- ever Champions League quarter-final.[pod_component pod_component_config_id=”tbXo0vxhe” pod_component_config_url=”” pod_component_config_loader_url=”″ src=””]MORE SPURS STORIESHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrongGossipSPURRED ONTottenham table contract offer for Bayern Munich’s teenage starlet Taylor BoothExclusivePASS THE TESTEngland’s NRL-based stars urge bosses to make room for a Test this yearThe Germans outplayed last season’s beaten finalists in North London, but only had Timo Werner’s penalty to show for it.Boss Julian Nagelsmann warned: “Spurs is still a good team.

Broncos’ Bennett happy with ‘scrappy’ win

first_imgThe Broncos led from start to finish on the back of their superior ball-handling skills in greasy conditions, but they had to survive a second-half assault from a Cronulla side spurred on by a parochial home crowd on Thursday night. To make matters more difficult, they had to do it with 16 men after Alex Glenn was forced off with concussion just before the break and didn’t return in the second half. “I was pleased we scrapped it out. It was a scrappy game in many ways, but it was an intense game, a very tough game,” Bennett said. “[I liked] our refusal to give in. We were a player down at half-time and it put a lot more pressure on everyone else. They played pretty good in the second half, Cronulla, and we just stayed at it.”Our ball control in the second half won us the game. It allowed us to maintain the lead and keep control of the game.”Winning in a tough game like this will do everyone the world of good.”Bennett didn’t single out any of his players following the eight-point win over the defending premiers, instead choosing to praise his side for their resolve to fight through adversity. “It was a team effort, they all made a contribution, and we had to,” he said. “Cronulla played like a premiership team. They had a lot of confidence about themselves, and that’s what a premiership does for you, it gives you confidence and belief. They never thought they were beaten at any stage of the game. We had to overcome all those things, so I’m pleased with what we did.”Broncos skipper Darius Boyd was one of the standouts in attack, throwing the final pass for tries to both of his wingers. The star fullback said his side’s attack was a work in progress, and praised five-eighth Anthony Milford for stepping up in the key moment to seal the two competition points with a trademark solo try. “It’s definitely a process and it will take time. We probably panicked a little bit and we just need to play the basics. It was the first hit out of the year so we just need to start slow and complete and keep in the game,” Boyd said.  “I thought he (Milford) got better as the game went on. It’s going to take a bit of time with all of us – 7, 6, 9 and 1 – with a few new structures and shapes, but as you saw at the end, he took it upon himself to do something as ‘Milf’ always does.”last_img read more

James, out again

first_imgThis is the complete call:Goalkeepers: Courtois, Areola and Altube.Defenses: Carvajal, Militão, Varane, Nacho, Odriozola and Mendy.Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde and Isco.Strikers: Benzema, Bale, Jović, Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo. Real Madrid has announced the list of summoned for the first match of the year 2020 against Getafe in the Alfonso Pérez Coliseum. Zinedine Zidane has called 19 players and, as always, you will have to make a discard, which will be one of the goalkeepers. Again, Brahim and Mariano they have been left off the list, with the club working to find them a way out in this winter market. Lucas Vázquez and Marcelo, back after injury, they are not part of the list, with the mind set on not forcing and being able to be in the Spanish Super Cup next week.The big surprise is the absence of James Rodriguez, which has been exercising with the group for several weeks. Specifically, since December 19. Thus, Zidane’s decision is purely technical. In the casualties chapter, Sergio Ramos will not be in the Coliseum for sanction. Further, Marco Asensio and Eden Hazard They continue with their recovery process and they still have to be available. In fact, Zinedine Zidane has confirmed that the Belgian has no chance to play the Spanish Super Cup next weekend.last_img read more
