Aguero brace wins community Shield for Manchester City

first_imgSergio Aguero scored both Manchester City goals as the Premier League champions beat Chelsea to win the Community Shield on a sweltering day at Wembley.Aguero’s first – his 200th goal for the club – came after 13 minutes, when he collected the ball on the edge of the area after Phil Foden surged forward, and fired into the bottom corner.His second came after the break, when he latched on to Bernardo Silva’s pass and beat Willy Caballero with another precise low finish.Chelsea, less than a month into Maurizio Sarri’s reign as manager, lacked a presence in attack and managed only one shot on target, a long-range strike by 17-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi which Claudio Bravo fumbled to safety.Some of their lethargy going forward could be put down to the heat, which made it difficult for both sides to sustain any sort of tempo.Players were allowed water breaks during the game and some City players sitting on the bench had wet towels over their heads to try to protect them from the intensity of the sunshine.Sarri was without his best forward player, with Eden Hazard due back for post-World Cup pre-season training on Monday amid speculation Real Madrid want to sign him.City, who won last year’s title by 19 points, were also without some of their stars – with Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and David Silva all absent.But they produced a controlled and efficient performance to secure their third piece of silverware in the past six months. The worry for the rest of the Premier League is they have the appetite for more.last_img read more

Hasegawa defends WBC bantamweight title

first_imgKOBE – WBC bantamweight champion Hozumi Hasegawa stopped Nicaraguan challenger Alvaro Perez in the fourth round Friday to defend his title for the 10th time.Hasegawa placed himself alone in second on the Japanese all-time list for consecutive title defenses behind Yoko Gushiken, who defended his WBA light flyweight crown 13 times. Proud papa: Hozumi Hasegawa, the WBC bantamweight champion, is congratulated by his children after his 10th title defense on Friday night. | KYODO PHOTO GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES The Japanese champion tagged Perez with a hard left that buckled the ninth-ranked fighter’s knees before the referee called an end to the bout at 2:38 of the fourth round at Kobe World Memorial Hall.It was the fifth straight knockout for Hasegawa, one fewer than Gushiken’s record sixth. He improved to a record of 28 wins, 12 KOs, with two defeats.“I wasn’t just aiming for a knockout but I trained to go 12 rounds in this fight. Of course, I’m proud to have retained my title for the 10th time but I just see this as a transition point,” said Hasegawa.Hasegawa bobbed and weaved his way around a feisty Perez, who put the pressure on early with a relentless attack.“I would like to become No. 1 but I also think about making a fresh challenge or following a different direction. For now anyway, I am relieved that I could defend the title.”Hasegawa, who turned 29 on Wednesday, has said he would like to pursue his boxing career in the United States and possibly aim for a title in a different weight category.“Hasegawa is a great champion with a hard punch,” Perez said. “I knew the match was over when he hit me with that punch and my legs just stopped moving. I wasn’t able to move as instructed by my corner.” Fistic power: Hozumi Hasegawa connects on a third-round punch against Alvaro Perez of Nicaragua during their WBC bantamweight title bout on Friday in Kobe. Hasegawa retained his title with a fourth-round knockout. | KYODO PHOTOcenter_img IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 RELATED PHOTOS Seventh defense: WBC bantamweight champion Hozumi Hasegawa (left) lands a left hook against Alejandro Valdez of Mexico during the second round of their title bout on Thursday at Yoyogi National Gymnasium in Tokyo.

Djokovic must accept that he is already the “bad guy”: TennisKafe

first_imgSeven-time Grand Slam champion John McEnroe said Novak Djokovic was “the bad guy” after last night’s US Open disqualification. The Eurosport expert, known for his violent temper and sharp tongue, said he did not expect such an act from the Joker, especially in a situation where he is a clear favorite.“It simply came to our notice then. Djokovic will be the “bad guy” for the rest of his career, whether he likes it or not. If he accepts this role, I think he will be able to recover. “A lot has happened around him in recent months, but what happened last night is a stain that Novak will not be able to erase,” Big Mac told ESPN.“The important thing for him at the moment is exactly how he will deal with this situation, what will be the reaction to him from the younger players, as well as from the fans, when they start to return to the courts. I’m surprised that Novak did something so stupid in a situation where he was a clear favorite. He just collapsed. Yes, you lost a service game, it’s annoying, but what happened? ”Said the American legend.The behavior of the Serb after the match was also not to the liking of the “Tennis Commissioner”.“You have to be a man and take responsibility for your actions. What happened was completely illogical to me. We have seen Djokovic take responsibility many times in the past when he made a mistake. Now, however, his post-match behavior has only made matters worse. What if he apologized on social media? That’s not enough, “said the four-time US Open champion.TennisKafe.comlast_img read more
