Balotelli scores winner for Italy against Mexico

Jun 17 2013, 2:10am CDT | by

Rio de Janeiro, June 17 (IANS) Mario Balotelli struck a 77th-minute winner as Italy began their Confederations Cup football campaign with 2-1 victory over Mexico here at the packed Maracana Stadium.

Rio de Janeiro, June 17 — Mario Balotelli struck a 77th-minute winner as Italy began their Confederations Cup football campaign with 2-1 victory over Mexico here at the packed Maracana Stadium.

On Sunday night in front of 70,000 fans at the Maracana, Balotelli ran onto Emanuele Giaccherini's delicate lob to slide the ball in between two defenders and goalkeeper Jose Corona, reports Xinhua.

Andrea Pirlo, in his 100th international appearance, scored Italy's first in the 27th minute by thumping a 25-meter free-kick that curled into the top-left corner.

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez equalized seven minutes later, coolly converting a penalty after Giovani dos Santos was brought down by Andrea Barzagli.

Italy dominated the early possession in front of more than 70,000 fans at the Maracana stadium.

Balotelli was the protagonist with three shots on goal in the first 10 minutes.

The AC Milan forward's deft chip that narrowly flew over the crossbar was followed by two firmly struck attempts that were kept out by Corona.

Mexico responded by threatening on the counterattack and Andres Guardado was unlucky not to put his side ahead when his fizzing drive ricocheted off the crossbar.

Italy continued to assert their authority in the second half with Pirlo and, in particular, Giaccherini causing problems for Mexico's defence with his pace and vision.

Second-half substitute Raul Jimenez had a chance to equalize in injury time but his low shot from the edge of the area was parried clear by Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

Liverpool vs. Everton: Team news and game preview

Sep 27 2014 2:02am CDT | Source: SBNation

Liverpool and Everton step into Saturday's Merseyside derby in similarly surprising poor form. They're both sitting in the bottom half, with the reds having lost their last two matches in a row, while the Toffees boast the Premier League's worst defense. Most expect the Premier League table to rearrange itself with these teams near the top of the table eventually, but at least one of them is going to have to spend another week far away from Euro ...

The Merseyside derby is always a thrilling affair, but rarely have the city of Liverpool's teams been so attack-minded, yet vulnerable defensively. There are ample goals in both thanks to the presence of forward players such as Raheem Sterling and Romelu Lukaku. But this particular derby will probably hinge on which defence isn't a liability. Before delving into a deeper preview, here's all o ...

EPL Derby Weekend: Liverpool vs. Everton; Arsenal vs. Spurs

Sep 26 2014 5:45pm CDT | Source: The Big Lead

This coming weekend in the English Premier League is all about rivalries, or if you prefer “derbies.” I suppose you could quibble why someone in America would use the term derby when rivalry would suffice just as well. The proper or preferred nomenclature isn’t that important, but it’s something to think about. Although the games themselves are played in England, increasingly the EPL (or BPL, technically) belongs to the world thanks to the joint powers ...
