Kiwis lament missed chances

first_imgThe Kiwis recovered from a sluggish start, which saw the Kangaroos up 10-0 after just 15 minutes, to trail by six points with three minutes to go in front of 21,009 fans at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on Sunday morning (AEDT).With a few seconds left Shaun Johnson looked to have scored a try which would have set New Zealand up with the opportunity to escape the game with a draw, but inspection from the video referee found he had been held up by some desperate Kangaroos cover defence.Post-match Kidwell didn’t see that as the defining moment of the contest though, and believed New Zealand probably cost themselves a chance earlier with an inability to build pressure.”Test match football is about taking your opportunities and I thought at times we didn’t,” Kidwell said.”Towards the end there we started to play some of the football that we know we can play, we just have to make sure that we take our opportunities both in attack and defence.”Some of our first-up contact at times, I think we just let them off the hook a couple of times. “There is [a couple of missed opportunities which stand out], with letting them out of their half a couple of times.”last_img read more

The D.C. United wants Modric but can’t take his token

first_imgIn spite of having lost his undisputed holder status, mainly due to the irruption of Fede Valverde, andl de Zadar continues to count for Zidane and is indispensable in the future of the season. In spite of the physical problems that he has suffered this year, he has played 18 matches in the current campaign, in which he has added 4 goals and 5 assists, large figures that demonstrate the quality he treasures. Skills that led him to be awarded the Golden Ball and The Best in 2018, after leading his team to the World Cup final and proclaiming himself a European champion as a Real Madrid player. Therefore, the future of Modric will remain linked to the white set, at least for now.There were already doubts in the past about its continuity, in the summer of 2018 specifically, but the midfielder decided that he wanted to remain linked to the Madrid discipline and made effective the extension of his contract until 2021 that corresponded to him for winning the 2018 Golden Ball. Once the aforementioned link comes to an end, the Croatian will add 36 springs, so at the end of the current season, both Modric and the White board will have decisions to make. Luka Modric has received siren songs from Washington to be part of the D.C. United, according to ‘The Athletic’ and has been able to confirm AS. Nevertheless, As this newspaper has corroborated, the operation is not possible at this time, since the player’s salary is unaffordable for the American team and the white ’10’ wants to fulfill the contract that binds him to Real Madrid until 2021. Interest in the player has intensified after Wayne Rooney’s return to England days ago, to the ranks of the Championship Derby County, after passing the 18 months prior as the visible star of the capitals.last_img read more
