Matty James struck his side’s fourth just six minutes after the interval to condemn the Robins to a humiliating defeat in front of their own fans.A familiar tale of soft goals proved City’s downfall again, with all three of Wood’s goals particularly prevenatable, and, although the hosts improved in the second half, the damage had long since been done.McInnes handed a debut to former Kilmarnock midfielder Liam Kelly, signed late on Thursday evening, as one of five changes to his side knocked out of the FA Cup by Blackburn Rovers.Dean Gerken returned in goal, with Richard Foster, Stephen McManus and Steven Davies also back in the starting line-up.Louis Carey, Mark Wilson, Paul Anderson and Ryan Taylor all dropped out of the side, with Tom Heaton, Matthew Bates and Sam Baldock all suffering with calf problems.City started positively enough, with Davies and Jon Stead keeping the Leicester defence occupied, but the visitors also looked a threat through lively winger Anthony Knockaert before opening the scoring thanks to a familiar source.Ben Marshall’s pass in behind Foster found the willing run of Wood, who ran into the box, cut inside and buried a low shot past Gerken at the keeper’s near post.It was the New Zealand international’s fourth goal on only his third appearance for his new club, and he was gifted a fifth seven minutes later.From Marshall’s left-wing corner, Gerken failed to collect the high ball, Liam Fontaine was unable to clear and Wood pounced from just a couple of yards out to double his tally for the day.Having started brightly, City were in danger of a repeat performance of the first half against Wolves before Christmas, when a four-goal blitz had the result tied up before the interval.But the hosts nearly found a way back into the contest when Davies’ inswinging corner appeared to elude everybody inside the six-yard box before Ritchie De Laet uncomfortably cleared from on the far post.Any hope of going in at break still in the contest was extinguished by Wood’s hat-trick goal on 41 minutes. Collecting the ball on the edge of the City penalty area, the striker’s weak shot squirmed beneath the body of Gerken to round off a half to forget for McInnes’ men.The City boss responded at half-time with a double change, withdrawing James Wilson and Stead in favour of Paul Anderson and Wes Burns – the youngster handed his first-team debut at just 18 years of age alongside Davies up front.And Burns’ enthusiasm was immediately evident, as he chased what looked a lost cause towards the touchline, overtaking Wes Morgan at full pace before clattering into Kasper Schmeichel – no respecter of reputations, obviously.But the good feeling from Burns’ desire to make an impact was soon a thing of the past when the ball broke to James, who rifled home a sweet low shot across Gerken, leaving the City keeper no chance.McInnes’ side continued to plug away, as Greg Cunningham joined in some neat passing before dragging a low shot wide, while Burns’ attempted cross ended up closer to Schmeichel’s far corner than a red-shirted colleague with the Dane anxiously backpedalling.At the other end, a strong run from former Manchester United midfielder Danny Drinkwater culminated in a chance for substitute Lloyd Dyer, who replaced the injured Knockaert in the first half but could not hit the target from ten yards.Then some fine individual play by Davies inside his own half set Burns free down the right flank, and the lively forward left Michael Keane in his wake before cutting the ball back for Anderson, whose shot was half-blocked before Schmeichel saved comfortably.Soon after, Anderson’s break from deep fed the marauding Fontaine before the defender’s shot just disappeared wide via another slight deflection.Next to threaten was Kelly, who shot straight into the arms of Schmeichel with City intent on adding an air of respectability to the scoreline.The new arrival’s debut came to an end ten minutes from time, as McInnes opted to boost Bobby Reid’s first-team experience in the closing stages.Another lively run from Burns saw his cross parried only as far as Stephen Pearson, but the Scot skied his lunging shot high over the East End to sum up the mood among a sombre home faithful.

Achraf Lazaar and Newcastle United is perhaps one of the oddest relationships we’ve seen in football for a long time. Clearly unwanted by all managers at St James’ Park, including the one who brought him over from US Palermo (Rafa Benítez), the Morocco international has managed a whole 10 appearances in over three years.Either sat with the reserves or out on loan, the 27-year-old has needed a permanent exit for a while now, yet it’s never come, and another temporary one was arranged in the summer, this time to Cosenza Calcio in Serie B.It might be a massive downgrade, but it’s something he says he needed to do when giving an interview to TuttoMercatoWeb.He said: “Staying at Newcastle would have been like finishing my football career. I would have only been thinking of money, and my parents taught me that a career comes before money. Football is my life. I want to come back as big as I was before going to Newcastle.Embed from Getty Images“My agent De Fanti as well as my mental coach Civitarese were very close to me in a delicate period and together we chose Cosenza. I was one of the leaders at Palermo and ended up on the bench at Newcastle: it’s not easy, especially mentally. Last year I played six months at Sheffield (Wednesday), I wanted to go back to Italy, at home, so I chose Cosenza”.The player then went on to explain why things didn’t work out at Newcastle, claiming that ‘as long as there was Benítez, it was a technical choice’.He has no regrets about going to England, since he wanted to try football here ‘at all costs’ to prove his qualities, a ‘child’s dream’, but it simply ‘didn’t go well’.As for whether or not he feels the need to come back to the Premier League for revenge, the answer is simply no.He continued: “I don’t have to prove anything to anyone in England. I want to be the best for myself. I want to stay in Italy. Italy raised me, made me feel important. The English experience made me become a man”.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Super Eagles head coach Gernot has listed the Super Eagles players that are all but guaranteed a place in the squad for this summer’s World Cup in Russia.The former Burkina Faso and Niger Republic coach was speaking about his team in a chat with Soccer Laduma. In his words, the Franco-German tactician said: “We have a few very experienced players, such as our captain John Obi Mikel (Tianjin Teda, China). Our two central defenders William Troost-Ekong (Bursaspor, Turkey) and Leon Balogun (Mainz, Germany) are also very important to us.”“We have players such as Victor Moses (Chelsea, England) and Alex Iwobi (Arsenal, England) – they are also very important for us.“We have many young players, and everyone has a role to play in our team.“But the most important leaders are our captain Mikel, the vice-captain Ogenyi Onazi, and Ahmed Musa also.” he concluded.Rohr and his boys will face Poland on March 23 and Serbia on March 27 as part of preparations ahead of the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup.Related
12-year-old musical prodigy who beat cancer plays St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Carnegie Hall in same day
Related Abcnews.com(NEW YORK) — A 12-year-old cancer survivor who learned piano as a young child while battling his disease unlocked a talent and passion that paved the way for a once-in-a-lifetime performance.Daniel Colaner of Akron, Ohio, made his Carnegie Hall debut on Sunday performing Chopin’s “Fantaisie Impromptu” and said the experience was “incredible.”“Really, it was just absolutely incredible. Just the piano was magnificent, much better than my upright at home,” the 12-year-old said. “The acoustics were amazing. Everything just came together, beautifully.”Daniel, who played a sample of the Chopin piece on “Good Morning America,” was diagnosed as an infant with stage four neuroblastoma, which affects the nervous system.At one point, he was given just a 25 percent chance to survive, his family said.To keep his brain developing, doctors encouraged playing music and during his early years of chemotherapy and treatment, piano became a part of his recovery as he fought the cancer to develop normally.“Chempotherapy is both a blessing and a curse, and in very small children at 6 months old they basically bring you to the point of death and hope that they kill all of the bad cells and leave enough of the good ones for you to recover,” Daniel’s mother, Marie Colaner, said.His mom added that she and his father, Dan Colaner, are beyond proud of his accomplishments, “Not just proud, but incredibly blessed to see Daniel healthy, happy and able to do something he absolutely loves.”As if Carnegie Hall was not enough, the young pianist is an accomplished organist as well and played at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City.“It was just absolutely amazing there. Being able to control this huge wall of sound that covers the entire cathedral was just incredible,” Daniel said.He said he has “no idea” how he could top this experience. “Going to St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Carnegie Hall in one day, that’s a pretty great day for a 12-year-old.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

iStock/Thinkstock(ROME) — The U.S. ambassador to the Vatican returned a letter written by Christopher Columbus after it was stolen and replaced with a forgery, officials said.“The Columbus Letter, as it is known, is an account of the explorer’s discovery of America written in 1493 to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain,” according to a press release from the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See.The letter was translated into Latin and several copies were distributed throughout Europe, the embassy said. The letter was stolen from the Vatican Library and sold in 2004, according to the Department of Justice.After the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Homeland Security Investigations discovered that the copy held in the Vatican was a fake, they contacted a man named Robert Parsons, who purchased a copy of the original letter in 2004, the release said.Parsons’ widow, Mary Parsons, decided to return the letter to the Vatican and relinquish her rights to it, according to a press release.U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See, Callista L Gingrich, delivered the letter to Vatican’s archivist and librarian, Archbishop Jean-Louis Bruguès, and the prefect, Bishop Cesare Pasini.“The Columbus Letter, written in 1493, is a priceless piece of cultural history. I am honored to return this remarkable letter to the Vatican Library — its rightful owner,” Ambassador Gingrich said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico Related
