Farrell responded in kind

Farrell responded in kind For all that the scoreboard makes for desperate reading yet again for Northampton, perhaps the most miserable aspect of this latest hammering is that Saracens Mike Moustakas Authentic Jersey hit top gear only intermittently in reaching their fourth half-century against the Saints this season. Men's Adidas Minnesota Timberwolves #8 Nemanja Bjelica Authentic Black Alternate NBA Jersey Alex Lozowski was masterful at outside-centre and Maro Itoje commanding but the ease with which Northampton were sliced and diced in the second half – shipping 48 points without scoring a single one themselves – represents their lowest ebb in a dire season. “There’s embarrassment throughout the squad and the coaches,” said the Northampton coach, Alan Dickens. Nine different try scorers ensured Saracens moved on from their European Rugby Champions Cup exit at the hands of Leinster in emphatic style and remain on course for a home Premiership play-off. They have now scored 237 points, at an average of more than 59, in their four crushing wins over Saints and this was their highest total. “It says a lot about the group, after a six-day turnaround from Dublin, how mentally tough we were,” said the Saracens director of rugby, Mark McCall. Remarkably, Saracens led just 15-13 at the interval. Indeed, Northampton turned down a penalty within Stephen Myler’s range that would have taken them into the break ahead, yet Sarries turned up the volume in the second half and Saints capitulated again. Ultimately, the season cannot end early Stephon Gilmore Womens Jersey enough – the brief bounce they enjoyed with Alan Gaffney’s arrival has now disappeared in the rear-view mirror. A tranche of players have been let go – in truth a lot of deadwood – and the only optimism stems from the anticipation that surrounds Chris Boyd’s arrival from the Hurricanes next season. He cannot, however, work miracles. It was an inauspicious start from Northampton – Teimana Harrison butchering rugby’s equivalent of an open goal after a fine long pass from Myler. Five minutes later Saracens had their first try with Sean Maitland’s inside pass freeing Lozowski. Saints were then on the board after a high tackle from Owen Farrell – one of three by the fly-half in the first 40 minutes – with Myler on target. Farrell responded in kind before the Saints hooker Reece Marshall, making his first Premiership Harrison Smith Womens Jersey start, finished well in the corner from close range. Northampton were ahead after another Myler penalty before Saracens upped the ante, kicked to the corner and Schalk Brits touched down from the driving lineout. Perhaps given a reminder or two at the break, Saracens were suddenly in the mood and a muscular carry from Itoje led to Ben Spencer going over in the corner. The hammer blow came when Mako Vunipola powered over after a period of pressure and the coup de grace followed with a deliciously disguised chip by Farrell for Liam Williams to collect and add the fifth try.

Mercedes have been insistent

Mercedes have been insistent Ordinarily making the podium from ninth on the grid would be a result eagerly accepted but for Lewis Hamilton there was an air of disappointment in doing so at the Bahrain Grand Prix after what had looked Joey Bosa Jersey for a time like a comeback drive that might have returned a remarkable Mercedes Satchel Paige Jersey one-two. The ambition was there but for Hamilton and his team‑mate Valtteri Bottas, who was second, their hopes were dashed by a bold Ferrari strategy call and a remarkable piece of driving by the winner, Sebastian Vettel. Women's Brandon Williams Limited Red Nike Jersey: NFL Arizona Cardinals #26 Home Vapor Untouchable Mercedes made their play in the form of opting to put both their drivers on one-stop strategies, when Ferrari were looking to bring Vettel home from pole with a two-stopper. A mid‑race switch to match Mercedes meant Vettel had to make his softer tyres last 39 laps to the flag, with a life span predicted by Pirelli of only 30. Had he had to pit again both Hamilton and Bottas would have passed him. By the end his grip was gone but he kept it on the island with exemplary control, holding off Bottas’s late charge and thwarting Mercedes’ carefully engineered plans. After a five-place grid penalty damage limitation was Hamilton’s goal and he was happy to have taken the 15 points but his disappointment reflects that Vettel now has two wins from two races this season and a 17-point lead over the British driver in the world title fight. Equally, Ferrari have shown that their race pace is strong. Mercedes have been insistent that their rivals were a real threat and the Scuderia’s performance at the Sakhir circuit suggests that once again this season is going to be a tight fight at the front. The Ferrari has performed superbly across the weekend in Bahrain, well balanced, with great pace and working its tyres well in the high temperatures. Vettel made the most of their advantage. His team’s jubilation will be coloured, however, by a serious pit‑stop error that cost Kimi Raikkonen his race and left a mechanic on the floor when the Finn was released before the left rear wheel had been fitted properly. Francesco Cigarini sustained a fractured tibia and fibula and will undergo surgery in Bahrain. The stewards imposed a fine of €50,000 (£43,000) for an unsafe release. The team use a lights system to indicate to the driver when to leave the pit box. “I go when the light is green, I didn’t see what Terrell McClain Youth jersey happened behind and unfortunately he got hurt,” Raikkonen said. Ferrari had already received a fine after an unsafe release for Raikkonen in practice and will likely now have to review their pit-stop procedure. cheap jerseys from china cheap nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys

Reed’s 215-yard approach Jersey

Reed’s 215-yard approach Jersey If the golf even approaches the heights of the buildup, stand by for quite a show. Who Seth Jones Youth jersey said the Masters begins only on the Sunday back nine? Youth Felix Hernandez Authentic Teal Green Majestic Jersey: MLB Seattle Mariners #34 Alternate Cool Base Eighteen months have passed since Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy went toe-to-toe and blow-for-blow in an epic Ryder Cup tie. We ain’t seen nothing yet. This battle for a Green Jacket promises to be one for the ages, with Reed holding the ace card of starting Sunday three ahead. Fourteen under plays 11 under. Reed emerged victorious from that electric Hazeltine encounter, with McIlroy later admitting fatigue got the better of him. On Sunday in this, the 82nd Masters, the Northern Irishman need only keep control of his fluctuating emotions as the tantalising prospect of a clean sweep of major championships homes into view. There is no question of tiredness halting McIlroy now but Reed’s stubbornness in opposition cannot and will not be taken lightly. Reed could become the first ever Masters winner to shoot four sub-70 rounds. McIlroy has waited seven years to be in the last Masters pairing. How he reacts will draw glances from beyond golf. It is hardly a leap of faith to point out the majority within the sport will root for the Ulsterman. McIlroy himself was brilliantly bullish on Saturday evening as he firmly laid down the gauntlet to Reed. McIlroy’s day-three 65 outscored Reed by two. “Patrick has a three-shot lead; I feel like all the pressure is on him,” said McIlroy. “He has got to protect that and he has some pretty big-time players behind him. He has to sleep on that tonight. I feel like I have nothing to lose. “My game is right there. I don’t feel like there is any shot on the golf course that I can’t execute and I think I’ve shown that in the last three Marvin Jones Jr Youth jersey days. This isn’t my first time in this position. I have a lot of experience and experience that I have learnt from, good and bad.” In a further, obvious jab McIlroy added: “I know what it’s like to be in Ahkello Witherspoon Youth jersey that position. It isn’t easy, especially if it’s your first time. I’m going to free‑wheel it and play like I have nothing to lose, everything to gain. Which is true.” Reed had dropped a shot at the 12th hole when seeing his lead over McIlroy reduced to two. The battle was on; the Northern Irishman saved par from the middle of an azalea bed ahead at the 13th. Proof that Reed lacks nothing in competitive spirit was to follow. Reed’s 215-yard approach to within 14ft of the 13th hole might be the shot of this tournament. The Texan duly converted for an eagle. That Reed may have the golfing gods, as well as obvious talent, in his corner could be readily inferred two holes later. Reed, in a tricky lie 30 yards out from the flag on 15, chipped in for another two-stroke boost. For McIlroy hope, unlikely hope, appeared one hole later as Reed three-putted for a bogey. Better was to come for McIlroy before he strode so purposefully from the 18th green following a birdie. Reed missed an opportunity for the same. wholesale jerseys from china cheap jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys

There is still the Allianz Arena

There is still the Allianz Arena At the final whistle there was applause and then at one end of this stadium they began to bounce about, chanting about how proud they were of the team that soon came over to clap them back. At the same time, Bayern Munich’s players headed to the other end. It had not been easy but they had won 2-1, taking an important lead into the second leg. Women's Adidas Boston Bruins #88 David Pastrnak Premier Green Salute to Service NHL Jersey There is still the Allianz Arena to come, but the reaction from the Sánchez Pizjuán felt final, like the fans Authentic Dave Taylor Jersey here knew they had probably reached the end of the road. It is 60 years since Sevilla have come so far and there was reason to be satisfied even if there Stephen Vogt Jersey was reason to be a little sad too. For Bayern, this Bo Jackson Jersey is familiar territory, but the next step will be harder. Sevilla always knew this would be difficult, the banner depicting them as Asterix and Obelix spread across one end expressing the enormity of what they had before them, but they had come to believe. “Sevilla score a goal,” the fans sang as the clock ran down. They had scored one in the first half, through Pablo Sarabia, but an own goal from Jesús Navas and a header from Thiago Alcântara had seen Bayern recover to take a 2-1 lead. Now Sevilla tried to find the equaliser but it was not to be. If Manchester was historic, they will have to do something even more extraordinary in Munich. For much of the first half, it felt perfectly possible. Carlos Joaquín Correa and Sergio Escudero had first combined as early as the second minute and it was from their left wing that the first chance came. Escudero’s wonderful ball sought out Wissam Ben Yedder and, as Mats Hummels tried to intercept, the ball fell at the feet of Sarabia nine yards out. Sarabia, though, curled it wide. The lament did not last. Just after the half-hour Escudero delivered again, this time long towards the far post. Juan Bernat was slow to the bounce, seemingly unaware of the threat behind him, and Sarabia jumped in front, controlling on the chest and finishing, running to the corner redeemed. The noise, already deafening, found a way of increasing somehow, the roar rolling round, but Bayern took just six minutes to draw level, fortune favouring them. James Rodríguez received from Thomas Müller and, amid the din, spread the play to the left where Franck Ribéry ran at the Sevilla defence. Opening out his body to bend the ball in right-footed, Ribéry instead hit Navas; the ball changed direction and squeezed past David Soria at the near post. Until then a simple catch from Thiago’s long shot was as difficult as it got for a goalkeeper surprisingly included ahead of Sergio Rico. cheap nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys

Ronaldo’s statistics had Jersey

Ronaldo’s statistics had Jersey For a brief moment, there was stunned silence. It felt as if nobody could comprehend what they had witnessed. Then the applause broke out. It came from all sides of this Cameron Jordan Authentic Jersey boisterous arena. In great blocks, the Juventus supporters rose to their feet. It was to recognise sporting genius and it did not matter to them that it had come from a rival. Men's Nike Houston Texans #41 Zach Cunningham Game White NFL Jersey Cristiano Ronaldo had put Real Madrid in control of this Champions League quarter-final with an early close-range finish. He now had them in sight of the next stage and, Joe Mixon Youth jersey even by his exulted standards, it was a jaw-dropping intervention. Youth Nike Indianapolis Colts #7 Jacoby Brissett Limited Olive 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey When Dani Carvajal stood up a cross from the right, Ronaldo instinctively knew that the overhead kick was on. He leapt, hung at high altitude and stretched before swivelling his hips and working a right-footed masterpiece beyond Gianluigi Buffon from behind the penalty spot. The crowd’s reaction was almost as beautiful. When does this ever happen? In the heat of the moment, it felt unique. Ronaldo’s numbers are freakish and, at the age of 33, they show no sign of letting up. He has 25 goals in his last 14 games for club and country. He has scored in every Champions League tie this season and he leads the field for the competition’s Golden Boot with 14. Something seems to stir inside him when he hears the aria. Yet the goals cannot be measured by volume alone. Ronaldo has scored plenty of classics. But in a high-stakes game has he ever scored a better one? “It is Nik Stauskas Youth jersey one of the most beautiful goals in the history of the game,” said the Real manager, Zinedine Zidane. Juventus were broken. Paulo Dybala, the Serie A club’s great hope, Womens Cyrus Jones Jersey was sent off for a high boot on Carvajal, having previously been booked for diving and, when Ronaldo ushered in Marcelo for Real’s third, it was all over. Juventus have won the previous four two-legged ties against Real, going back to 1996, but they need a miracle to progress. After the loss to Real in last season’s final in Cardiff, this was another bitter pill. The holy grail of a first Champions League triumph since 1996 continues to feel elusive. Ronaldo’s statistics had to be updated – and further gawped at – after just three minutes. Marcelo’s switch of feet created the angle for the pass up the left to Isco but it was still shocking to see how much space the Real midfielder had to cross. Ronaldo held his run. Then, he bolted for the near post and, when he connected, everybody knew what would happen next. He has never failed to score for Real against Juventus. This was his eighth goal in six appearances. There would be another one to come.,106371

Stadium is spared further misery

Stadium is spared further misery The London Stadium was Glenn Hubbard Authentic Jersey a sea of colour as the teams came out for this match. Those colours were fluorescent orange and yellow, representing the uniforms worn by the dozens of extra security and stewarding staff who had been drafted in for the day. Game George Fant Youth Road White Nike Jersey - #74 NFL Seattle Seahawks Joe Hart’s goalkeeping kit was in the same bright tones as the tabards, perhaps in a gesture of solidarity. This was a big match for West Ham and everyone knew it. Not only did the nature of the fixture against Southampton make it a relegation six-pointer but after the debacle of the previous home match against Burnley there was a sense of the club’s identity being on the line. Would they – the team, owners and fans - come together or fall apart? The joint-chairman David Sullivan was, for his own safety, ensconced Davis Webb Youth jersey under an awning behind the director’s box for the duration. David Gold was in his usual seat however, as was Karren Brady, under a West Ham blanket in the late March chill. The skies were grey and rain was falling as the match kicked off. Sir Trevor Brooking stepped down to his seat with a grimace. At the very back of the stadium, among half-a-dozen empty rows, a group of football tourists watched the first half. Irish, Danish, Japanese and Portuguese, they were taking advantage of a weekend in London to catch some Premier League football. These punters would perhaps be emblematic of a changing identity for those Upton Park ultras who had conducted a noisy protest before the match (they sang a chant to the tune of Cum on Feel the Noize, the refrain adapted to “lies, lies, lies”). Thanks to the home side’s dominant first-half performance, any thesis on how far these fans could be pushed before breaking was never tested. Even the tourists were out of their seats when Marko Arnautovic rounded off a superlative team move on the stroke of half-time. Sir Trevor took his seat after the interval with a broad smile and a pat on the back from Barry Fry. It looked as if the game would pass as other victories have here; quietly, almost with a shrug. Then something unusual happened. Home supporters in the ground’s lower tier stood up from their seats en masse. They started to chant, singing about bubbles and dreams and claret and blue. In the autumn of last season stewards instructing supporters to sit down had been one of the first flashpoints at West Ham’s new home. This time the massed neon ranks just let them get on with it. It was an interesting Kevin Hogan Youth jersey moment and one that caused no problems inside the stadium. There was no trouble, just noise. Arnautovic was the main beneficiary, receiving two roaring ovations from the crowd – first after his substitution 10 minutes before the final whistle, and then following his announcement as man of the match. But it was hard not to think that everyone got something from such obvious support. As the crowd left the ground and the sun came out, one fan phoned home to his wife: “I’m a happy Hammer tonight,” he said. wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys

On Tuesday night Sutherland

On Tuesday night Sutherland The harder you step in mess, the more it spreads. Last Saturday Cricket Australia found a flaming bag of Steve Francis Jersey the stuff on its doorstep and, just like the headteacher in the high school movie, decided the best way to put it out was to stamp right down on it. CA has banned Steve Smith and David Warner from all state and international cricket for a year, Cameron Authentic Dan Feeney Jersey Bancroft for nine months, and ordered all three to do 100 hours of community service. Smith will not be eligible for any kind of leadership role in the Australian team for another two years, Warner ever again. The three, and their lawyers, have seven days to appeal. The crime was petty, the cover-up clumsy, the punishment swift and vicious. Warner and Smith have both been cut from this year’s Indian Premier League, too. Outside of the treatment given to match fixers, there is no precedent in cricket for such heavy sentences. They are certainly not in line with those given to the other players who have been Dennis Rodman Authentic Jersey caught ball-tampering in recent years. But then CA did not charge these three with that, but with conduct unbecoming and bringing the game into disrepute. Which are such nebulous offences that it makes it hard to judge whether or not the punishments fit the crime. Women's Jonathan Villar Replica Navy Blue Majestic Jersey: MLB Milwaukee Brewers #5 Alternate Cool Base If they were even supposed to. Those charges suggest CA was more worried about addressing the outcry than the offence. And even then, it is not clear whether it wanted to appease its public, who are split Womens KeiVarae Russell Jersey about whether or not the bans are appropriate, or its sponsors and broadcast partners. It was only last week that CA knocked back a joint bid from the Nine and Ten networks for its TV rights because it was too low. Seven days later, CA’s negotiating position does not look quite so strong. But such is modern sport. It is not just the fans and your coach to whom you have to answer. Men's Limited Andre Ellington Black Jersey: Vapor Untouchable Alternate #38 NFL Arizona Cardinals Nike Besides, sympathy for the three banned players is tempered by the sorry details laid out in CA’s press release. Warner came up with the plan to cheat, taught Bancroft how to do it, Smith signed it off, and then all three tried to cover it up. What’s worse, Smith and Bancroft had lied in their confessional press conference last Saturday night, when they insisted Bancroft had not been using sandpaper but sticky tape. According to the investigation, all the other people in the Australian dressing room, the coaches and team-mates, the bowlers who were actually handling the ball, knew nothing about the plan until they saw it unfold on TV, when Darren Lehmann is supposed to have called the 12th man, Peter Handscomb, to ask him to find out “what the fuck is going on”. Then he questioned the players after the close of play. It is a convenient truth for CA, and close to the best-case scenario it must have wished for when the news broke. A lot of prominent ex-players expressed a measure of scepticism about the initial findings, notably Michael Clarke, who wrote two pointed tweets after Cricket Australia’s chief executive, James Sutherland, gave his press conference on Tuesday night. “Too many reputations on the line for the full story not to come out,” Clarke said. “The truth, the full story, accountability and leadership – until the public get this Australian cricket is in deep shit!” On Tuesday night Sutherland sounded like a man reading from a textbook on damage limitation. He spoke about rebuilding trust with the public but failed to convince his audience that he was being entirely honest himself. cheap nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys from china wholesale nfl jerseys

All around Christchurch there

All around Christchurch there England embark on their first Test at the picturesque Hagley Oval on Thursday and the last on their interminable winter tour. It is a long time since they pitched up optimistically for the first Test of the winter in Brisbane in November and a fair bit has changed since then on the international scene. Men's Elgin Baylor Swingman Gold Mitchell and Ness Jersey: NBA Los Angeles Lakers #22 Throwback In fact, since the last match in Auckland a lot has changed – especially on the other side of the Tasman Sea. While England players piously express their disappointment in public that the game has been stained, there are silver linings. Among them is the fact the Australian ball-tampering saga has deflected attention from England’s horrendous performances overseas.Their barren run without an away victory will stretch to 13 matches unless Joe Root’s team win here, and that would constitute an England record. “We must have the motivation to come back after a poor week when the rain made our performance look better than it was,” Root said. “Here we have the opportunity of a new game, a new venue and different conditions and we must show that we can be far better than we have been.” In these tempestuous times there could not be a more serene venue to contest a Test. The Hagley Oval resides in a 500-acre park in which the leaves on the trees are starting to turn. In that sense it is reminiscent of The Parks at Oxford even though it has a bright new pavilion, inevitably Cincinnati Bengals Youth jersey named Mark Messier Youth jersey after the Hadlees. The outfield is a level carpet of green and all around the oval there are grassy banks for the spectators, augmented by a couple of temporary stands. Meanwhile, its predecessor as a Test venue at Lancaster Park a couple of miles away, which was also the rugby ground, remains a deserted shell. All around Christchurch there are reminders of the terrible earthquake of 2011: cranes and scaffolding signal that reconstruction work is under way but the great, grey cathedral in the centre has been untouched for seven years, a grim reminder, especially for those across the water, of what constitutes a real tragedy. When Root appeared following a long meeting with his bowlers after practice at the Hagley Oval he insisted “the events in South Africa shouldn’t affect how we go about things”, though there is no doubt that Root and his England side have monitored the controversy closely. “Every series is different but we know we are always under scrutiny and we know how to conduct ourselves and keep going about it in the right way. Cricket has had a lot of air time, and lot of bad press.”

While such hefty punishments

While such hefty punishments David Warner was revealed as the architect of Australia’s ball-tampering plot and left staring at the end of his international career following publication of the damning charge sheet against the three players involved. Youth Nike Green Bay Packers #42 Morgan Burnett Navy Blue Alternate Vapor Untouchable Elite Player NFL Jersey Both Warner and Steve Smith Davante Adams Authentic Jersey have been hit with year-long suspensions, along with nine months for Cameron Bancroft, as Cricket Australia imposed draconian sanctions for “cheating” and “damaging” the sport during the defeat against South Africa in the third Test at Newlands. Men's Nike Minnesota Vikings #93 John Randle Elite Purple Rush Vapor Untouchable NFL Jersey While such hefty punishments were expected after Bancroft, in the full knowledge of his captain and vice-captain, was caught on camera trying to scuff the ball, the details of the deception went further than previously known. In announcing the outcomes from their investigation, which included the Test captain Smith being barred from leadership roles for two years and Warner for the rest of his career, with 100 hours of community service for all three, Cricket Australia found the greatest level of misconduct to have come from the latter. Amid a 1,000-word media release, it was concluded that the plan hatched during the lunch interval of Aldrick Rosas Jersey the third day had been the brainchild of Warner, who directly instructed Bancroft to damage the ball using sandpaper. That material – rather than sticky tape rolled in grit, Scott Simonson Youth jersey as Bancroft previously claimed – pointed to a greater level of premeditation, with Warner also teaching his “junior” team-mate and opening partner how best to use it in an attempt to extract reverse swing from the ball. Smith was charged with having full knowledge of this dressing-room tutorial but failing to act, along with lying to the umpires when they challenged Bancroft on the field. The latter was accused of the same, having produced the cloth he uses for cleaning his sunglasses rather than the sandpaper he had hidden down the front of his trousers following a tip-off from the 12th man, Peter Handscomb. Smith’s and Bancroft’s self-immolating press conference after stumps, where the former first spoke of “the leadership group” being involved, was also deemed to have misled the public, while Warner was accused of being untruthful with the match referee, Andy Pycroft, during his inquiry into events. cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys from china wholesale jerseys from china wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys

After that kind of wait

After that kind of wait It is 49 years since England last won in Amsterdam, with Alf Ramsey as manager, Colin Bell scoring an 84th-minute winner and Emlyn Hughes winning his first cap, so Gareth Southgate and his players are entitled to feel pleased with themselves now they have recorded their first victory here against the Oranje since the year man set foot on the moon. Women's Nike Los Angeles Rams #12 Joe Namath Game Black Fashion NFL Jersey After that kind of wait, perhaps it might be slightly impertinent to point out that we saw here why this is regarded as the worst Dutch side for a long time. England certainly chose obliging opponents and on this evidence, with the stadium barely half-full by the final whistle, it is very clear that a win against this lot cannot Authentic Julien Davenport Jersey be considered the prize it once was. Women's Majestic Cincinnati Reds #24 Tony Perez Replica Red Alternate Cool Base MLB Jersey Equally, England can still reflect on a satisfying evening after Jesse Lingard’s winning goal, a clean sheet for Jordan Pickford and – if we are to be grateful for small mercies – nothing too horrendous from the end decorated with St George’s flags. Well, apart Chad Kelly Authentic Jersey from the usual brainless attempt to drown out another country’s national anthem. Over two days, more than 100 England fans have been arrested but at least when it comes to the actual football it was the other country who should be the more embarrassed. Not that anyone in the England set-up should get Womens Zane Beadles Jersey too carried away just yet. The game against Italy at Wembley on Tuesday should provide a more realistic gauge of England’s World Cup preparations and, even in victory, there are still legitimate questions to be asked of Southgate when his team selections show so little in the way of pattern or structure. He started here with three players who usually operate as right-backs for their clubs, but without one actually playing as a right-back. Danny Rose’s selection in the left wing-back role shows Southgate must have abandoned his policy of not picking players who are out of favour at their clubs and it would be intriguing to know what Harry Maguire, James Tarkowski and Alfie Mawson made of Kyle Walker being asked to experiment as a centre-half. Confused? England should be glad this was such a poor Dutch side because the lack of clear strategy can seem bizarre, particularly when there are only three games now – or 270 minutes – to finalise their plans. On that front, Southgate will at least have a better idea now why Rose has fallen out of favour with Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham. Rose was involved in the goal but his overall performance was Womens Michael Pierce Jersey poor and, on the other side, Kieran Trippier did not do enough to disprove the theory that Walker is better equipped for the role. cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys
