Guus Hiddink reveals what Eden Hazard must do to win the Ballon d’Or

first_img1 Eden Hazard must show greater consistency to be considered among the world’s best players, according to Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink.Like the Blues, Hazard has endured a poor campaign, but he had a decisive say in the Premier League title race.He scored his first league goals of the season against Bournemouth last month, before netting an excellent finish against Spurs on Monday night to end the Lilywhites’ title chances, and send the Premier League trophy to Leicester.It is expected that the attacking midfielder will spend the rest of the season as a key figure in Hiddink’s plans, and the Dutch boss wants to see Hazard showing more consistency if he is to ever challenge for individual awards such as the  Ballon d’Or.“To win a Ballon d’Or or whatever then you need more consistency in performances,” the Blues’ interim boss said, ahead of the game against Sunderland.“It’s a long way for him to knock on that door. (But) when this guy is fit, physically, then he can play as nature has gifted him.“We coaches think ‘We make this player, I discovered that player’ but they are gifted.“If the conditions are good for him, in the environment or the physical part, then they love to play.“You see the big, big players love to play like amateurs and he has to play as an amateur again.”Hazard’s goal against Tottenham came towards the end of a fiery game, which saw nine Spurs players booked, and Hiddink has criticised the nature of the clash following the confirmation that both clubs have been charged by the FA for failing to control their players.He added: “It was a hot game.“Within the rules of sportsmanship you have to play.“There were too many chest to chest situations, which was not good for the game.“It’s up to the FA to make a judgement. I don’t have any comments on that (the response).” Eden Hazard in action for Chelsea last_img read more

Hungary 3-3 Portugal: Cristiano Ronaldo secures point in thrilling encounter

first_img Cristiano Ronaldo netted twice for Portugal 1 Portugal secured qualification to the Round of 16 by drawing 3-3 with Hungary in a thrilling encounter in Lyon.Zoltan Gera opened the scoring for the Magyars, who top Group F with five points, before Luis Nani pulled the tie level on the brink of half-time.Balazs Dzsudzsak and Cristiano Ronaldo then both struck twice in an enthralling 15 minute passage at the start of the second period to ensure the points were shared.Portugal knew they needed a positive result to secure their passage to the knockout stage, and came out of the traps in impressive style.A series of crosses were sent into Gabor Kiraly’s area, although his defence stood firm to clear most chances, and Nani failed to control the ball when presented with a great goalscoring opportunity.The former Manchester United star – winning his 99th cap – then sent a header over the bar, and saw an attempt cleared for a corner after a strong run on the counter.It took until the 7th minute for Hungary to mount their first attack, with Dzsudzsak sending a fine ball into the box which Pepe had to clear – although there were obvious signs the Portuguese defence looked shaky.And it was from some questionable defending that Gera grabbed the opening goal, although he deserves all the praise for one of the strikes of the tournament.A Dzsudzsak corner was cleared to the edge of the box, where Nani headed slightly further out – but straight into the path of Gera.He controlled on his chest, and struck a delightful half-volley which flew into the far corner of Rui Patricio’s net.Szalai then went close to doubling the lead, but he fired straight at Patricio from inside the box, and Adam Lang forced a corner off Pepe with a well delivered early cross.Hungary were looking far more dangerous than their more illustrious opponents, but Nani finally converted one of his many chances, sending a low shot past Kiraly at the near post following Ronaldo’s inch-perfect pass.Portugal were back in the game on the brink of half-time, but they fell behind 90 seconds into the second period, Dzsudzsak’s free-kick deflecting off Gomes in the wall and flying past the flailing Patricio.The Seleccao were continuing to struggle with their defensive work, but in the final third they looked dangerous, and Ronaldo finally opened his account.Joao Mario curled the ball into the area which was slightly behind the Real Madrid man, but he improvised spectacularly, using his back leg to flick the ball into the far corner.Nani was then inches away from adding a third for Portugal, only just missing the ball as he slid to convert another excellent Mario cross which flew across the face of goal.However, the goals kept coming, with Dzsudzsak putting the unfavoured Magyars back in front with another deflected shot – this time from open play.Ronaldo then added his second, heading Queresma’s cross past Kiraly to bring the tie level again, and moments later Szalai struck the post with a first-time attempt with Patricio beaten which would have sent Hungary back in front.Portugal were getting in a number of great positions, controlling the midfield and breaking into the final third to often outnumber the Hungarian defence – but they struggled to make their dominance count.Ronaldo flashed a header wide of the far post and sent a bouncing volley over the bar, whilst Queresma could only watch on as his long-range attempt flew past the post.The game slowed from its frenetic pace as the final 10 minutes came around, with Ronaldo’s wild free-kick the only real chance Portugal record.Hungary were content to play keep-ball in the knowledge they were topping the group, and one of the best games of Euro 2016 came to an end in a calm and composed manner.last_img read more

Poly dominance spans 2 decades

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “I’ve only been here for five years so I didn’t know it’s been that long,” Millikan coach Kirk Diego said. “We just focus on the game in front of us.” And at times that wasn’t an easy thing to do for Ram faithful against a Jackrabbit squad determined to rebound from last week’s 39-37 loss to Dominguez. After fumbling the ball over to the Rams (2-3) twice, the Jackrabbits scored the only points they needed on a 3-yard run by Ryan Smith, one of his two rushing touchdowns on the night. “I thought, /\x27/Here we go again with the turnovers,” ‘ said Poly coach Raul Lara, whose team had a half-dozen turnovers last week. “We were having a little problem with the exchange between our quarterback and running back. We fixed that, but that still shouldn’t be happening.” Wide receiver Terrence Austin added two first-half touchdowns as Gabriel Thomas found him for scores of 13 and 7 yards. Austin finished the game with five catches for 132 yards. Thomas’ other TD pass was a 73-yarder to Travon Patterson. Two decades ago this season, Millikan High won its last Moore League football title in style. Moments after an interception, the Rams scored the go-ahead touchdown with 13 seconds remaining to down rival Poly in the 1985 season finale. It was the last time Millikan downed Poly. History certainly didn’t repeat itself Friday night. Despite suffering through some of the same turnover issues that haunted them a week prior, the visiting Jackrabbits (3-2) scored at will en route to a 65-6 league-opening victory. center_img Thomas was 7 of 8 for 229 yards before he gave way in the second half. Thanks to an 89-yard TD run, Ellis Anderson was Poly’s leading rusher with 96 yards on only three carries. The Jackrabbits special teams made sure they weren’t left out in the scoring department; Gerald Bailey ran a blocked field goal attempt back 75 yards and Patterson had a 52-yard punt return. But Dominic Jackson kept the Rams from leaving their field empty handed. After Poly scored to go up 65-0, he broke a handful of tackles on his way to an 83-yard kickoff return with 1:20 remaining in regulation. “My kids never quit all the way to the end,” Diego said. ” They are the hardest workers on the planet.” — A.J.

Paraclete was area’s best

first_img Biggest surprise: Littlerock. A team that didn’t reach the playoffs a year earlier entered the final day of the regular season contending for the Golden League title. Although the Lobos didn’t beat Quartz Hill in the finale, taking the red-hot Rebels to four games was an accomplishment. Littlerock’s success came with a young roster of only nine players, including three sophomores and two freshmen. Seniors Samantha Bull, and Brittany Sousa anchored the lineup. Littlerock lost in the first round of the Div. II-AA playoffs to Simi Valley. Biggest disappointment: Highland. The Bulldogs started strong in league competition and were the Golden League’s only team to beat Quartz Hill – but they were slowed by several injuries. Highland (9-6) went from title contender to third place, then were swept out of the Div. I-AA playoffs in the first round by El Rancho of Pico Rivera. Looking ahead: Quartz Hill will miss senior standouts Tara Henn and Kayla Cherland, but the Rebels are used to adapting and will remain a threat. Sophomore outside hitter Chelsea Hamilton is one of Quartz Hill’s up-and-coming players, and she could emerge as one of the league’s stars. With so many potential returning players, Littlerock appears an early favorite for the 2006 Golden League title.

Player of the Year: Angela Hupp, Paraclete. Hupp has been among the region’s elite players since she was a freshman, but the Cal State Northridge-bound middle blocker/setter was particularly valuable this season.

According to Paraclete coach Margaret Neill, whatever the Spirits needed, Hupp provided. Coach of the Year: Larry Vocke, Quartz Hill.
