Bertrand helps England seal finals spot

Show/hide article…

Ryan Bertrand helped England to book their place at the World Cup finals, as a late Harry Kane goal sealed a 1-0 success over Slovenia at Wembley.

Bertrand played the full 90 minutes on what looked set to be a hugely frustrating evening, until stoppage time when in-form Kane met Kyle Walker’s right-wing cross and turned the ball beyond Jan Oblak.

With that, Gareth Southgate’s men maintained their unbeaten record in Group F and they now face a trip to Lithuania in their final match knowing qualification is secured.

Davis captains Northern Ireland in Germany defeat

Show/hide article…

The hosts, who have already sealed second spot, fell behind after two minutes when Sebastian Rudy hit an unstoppable long-range shot beyond the grasp of Roy Carroll.

And on 21 minutes, the world champions doubled their advantage through Sandro Wagner to give themselves a cushion.

Joshua Kimmich tidy volley with four minutes to go added gloss to the scoreline for Joachim Low’s men, before Josh Magennis registered a late consolation.

Attentions now turn to a trip to face Norway on Sunday for Michael O’Neill’s men where they will hope to pick up the points to ensure a play-off place.

Premier League clubs could see international broadcasting rights rise by 15 per cent a year

Premier League clubs could see international broadcasting rights rise by 15 per cent a year

Premier League clubs could see the value of their international broadcasting rights rise by as much as 15 per cent a year over the next decade, Sky Sports News understands.

The league’s 20 clubs discussed projections that three-year deals in more than 60 territories around the world could produce growth in revenue of between 40-45 per cent.

The Premier League currently receives more than £1bn a year from all overseas deals, which it shares equally between its clubs.

On Wednesday, clubs agreed to adjourn talks about their overseas broadcast deal, and the future development of the competition, until a meeting later this month.

It is understood that the league’s executive chairman Richard Scudamore will look to conclude discussions over the proposals at their next summit on October 26.

The Premier League has proposed that 35 per cent of international television revenue should be allocated according to where a club finishes in the table, with the remaining 65 per cent distributed equally to all clubs.

Sky Sports News understands Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool were joined by Leicester, Everton and West Ham in favour of a change to the current equal distribution of cash.

Some clubs with the highest revenue believe they should receive a greater slice of international money, in line with their global marketability and investment.

Fourteen clubs are needed to agree before any changes are approved.

SuperSport, the main sports broadcaster in Southern Africa, has agreed to improve the £84m a year they paid for 2016-19 to a £168m a year deal for 2019-2022.

Extraordinary growth has also been seen in China, where PPTV will pay £180m a year for 2019-2022, up from the £13m per annum now paid by SSMG.

Arsenal star linked with move back to former club

Show/hide article…

Southampton are reportedly planning to move for Arsenal’s Theo Walcott in January.

Walcott began his career at Saints and has 18 months remaining on his contract, with the Gunners not planning to extend it.

And the Express report that Saints are looking to boost their firepower in the winter transfer window and are willing to part with £12-15million for their England star who came through their youth system.

Inter Milan have also been linked with the 28-year-old.

Paris Saint-Germain are plotting to bring in Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez next summer when his contract runs out, and sell their current star striker Edinson Cavani.

Romelu Lukaku is now worth a remarkable 54 per cent more than he was when he joined Manchester United in July, according to a new study.

West Ham are ready to ditch their backing of the Big Six in the TV cash row that is threatening to destabilise the Premier League.

Chis Coleman may slip on some patriotic underpants as he looks for inspiration to help Wales to next summer’s World Cup. Manager Coleman donned socks emblazoned with the red Welsh dragon when naming his squad for this week’s final pair of group games and said: “Yeah, they have a red dragon on them. It is patriotic — you should see my pants!”

Jose Mourinho has played down Manchester United’s flying start , claiming: “It means nothing.” United are second only to Manchester City on goal difference after winning six and drawing one of their opening seven Premier League games. Mourinho refuses to get carried away and says it does not mean they will be champions.

A stadium which is being built for next summer’s World Cup has caught fire .

Injured Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has expanded an off-field portfolio that already includes eSports, fragrances and sportswear with a move into showjumping horse ownership.

The 100 worst strikers in Premier League history: Nos 20-1

Show/hide article…

After 25 years the Premier League has seen its fair share of great goalscorers. But it has also witnessed a fair amount of mediocrity in its time.

While its greatest players remain revered, some of its worst are equally heralded.

Here Sportsmail finally reach the end of the road and reveal the 20 worst strikers of the Premier League era…

When Tottenham sold Gareth Bale and spent £109m to replace him, hopes were placed in Roberto Soldado to shoulder the burden.

The Spaniard had enjoyed three lethal seasons with Valencia and was a proven talent in front of goal.

But to the tune of £26m, Andre Villas-Boas could be forgiven for expecting more than four of the six goals in his first season to come from the penalty spot.

He was shunted to the sidelines by Mauricio Pochettino in his second season, and soon returned to his homeland, having spectacularly failed to show his true worth.

Manchester City splashed £18m on Brazil striker Jo in July 2008, but within a month he was on a hiding to nothing.

An Abu Dhabi investment group completed a takeover of the club that transformed them overnight into the richest club in world football. Robinho joined, and the rest is history.

Jo scored only once in nine league games, and was farmed out on loan to Everton half-way through the season.

After some initial success, with five goals in 12, he was suspended by the club after returning to Brazil without permission over the Christmas period.

Yaya Sanogo perfectly sums up the recent past of Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal reign.

Plucked from the French league, he was a relative unknown, but Wenger believed he was investing in potential. He was severely mistaken.

Sanogo was gangly and wiry but was far from good enough for the Gunners. He was barely any better in his loan spell at Crystal Palace, scoring just the one FA Cup goal.

He was eventually released by Wenger in the summer, and we’re unlikely to see him in England ever again.

Joint managers are never a good idea, and it’s their lack of joined-up thinking that led Liverpool to spend £2m on Sean Dundee in 1998.

Seeking cover for Michael Owen, Gerard Houllier and Roy Evans settled on the South African-born German striker.

After claiming he was as fast as the England striker upon his arrival, hopes were high that Liverpool had unearth a gem.

Three late-season substitute appearances later and he was back in Germany with Stuttgart.

After a prolific few years back in native Poland, Rasiak then proved himself at Derby in the Championship.

That prompted Martin Jol to take a punt on the Pole on deadline day in August 2005, but within six months he’d been proven to be totally out of his depth.

Southampton signed him on loan, made the deal permanent and once again he flourished in the lower leagues.

Two years later he returned to the Premier League with Bolton as Nicolas Anelka departed for Chelsea. Somehow it didn’t work out.

Mateja Kezman’s Chelsea career is why you can never trust the Eredivisie. The Serb scored 105 goals in four years with PSV, and his arrival for £5.3m in 2004 was a snip.

He took Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s No 9 shirt but then took until December to score his first league goal. Only three more followed.

He was famed as a close-range poacher in Holland but barely got a chance to show it in England.

As he poked home an Eidur Gudjohnsen cross from one-yard out in the League Cup final against Liverpool, peak Kezman arrived.

The man who sunk a miserable England at Euro 92 arrived on these shores some three years later.

Howard Wilkinson felt the Swede could work in tandem with Tony Yeboah up front, but when he scored his first goal when a defender’s clearance bounced off his shoulder the farce was only just beginning.

He piled on the weight after suffering with injury, and in two spells at Leeds and Crystal Palace he eventually departed in disgrace.

His time in England is full of a rich tapestry of tales, such as the April Fool’s Joke that backfired, that time he was fined £90,000 for missing a match to attend his father’s 50th birthday and when he became Attilio Lombardo’s interpreter at Crystal Palace.

Aston Villa spent £5.8m on Bosko Balaban after he top scored in the Croatian league with Dinamo Zagreb.

But whatever eye for goal he showed in his native country disappeared in England.

Balaban made only nine appearances in two-and-a-half years, seven of those as a substitute.

He was eventually released in 2003 and joined Brugge, where he became known as ‘Super Bosko’ after predictably returning to goalscoring form.

Desperate for a striker to take the pressure off Harry Kane, Tottenham spent £17m to bring in Dutch international Janssen.

A prolific season with AZ tempted Spurs to bring him to England, but like Soldado before him the burly forward struggled with the demands.

He scored six times in all competitions, with four arriving from the penalty spot. His lack of speed and physicality saw him dumped at Fenerbahce on loan. It’s unlikely we’ll see him back here again anytime soon.

The mystery of Xisco’s time at Newcastle is perhaps summed up by the fact he was seventh choice striker behind Michael Owen, Obafemi Martins, Mark Viduka, Peter Løvenkrands, Shola Ameobi and Andy Carroll.

Kevin Keegan left soon after, incensed at the signing of a player behind his back. And yet despite that firepower, Newcastle ended the season relegated.

After scoring on his debut, in a 2-1 defeat by Hull, it all went downhill. It took until January 2013 for his contract to be terminated.

Despite being one of the most limited strikers in Liverpool history, Erik Meijer is remembered fondly by club supporters.

He spent just one season at Anfield, scored twice in the same game - a Worthington Cup win over Hull - and just ran around a lot.

Liverpool fans voted him 99th in the poll ‘100 Players Who Shook the Kop’, pointing to the never-say-die attitude that outshone any skill he possessed.

A year after leaving he was among Reds fans who congregated in Dortmund ahead of the 5-4 UEFA Cup final win over Alaves.

Norwich displayed their growing financial muscle by spending £8.5m on Ricky van Wolfswinkel in 2013.

He scored on his Premier League debut but failed to find the back of the net again. By April he had managed only eight shots on target, and ended the season with 25 appearances as Chris Hugton’s side slid back to the Championship.

His best moment came late in the season, away at Fuham, with a no-look pass to absolutely no-one.

Premier League new boys Cardiff smashed their transfer record to bring in Andreas Cornelius for £8m in 2013.

At just 20 and with only a year of goalscoring behind him at Copenhagen, the transition to England was steep.

Injury problems hampered him, but in 11 games he failed to score and was shipped off back to Denmark in January 2014.

This summer club owner Vincent Tan launched a fresh investigation into his signing, believing the club paid too much, and instructed lawyers to take a detailed look into the transfer.

Fulham were desperately battling relegation and in January 2014 they agreed a £12m fee with Olympiakos for the Greek striker.

He may have been the record fee holder but he appeared only three times due to a variety of injury, fitness and form issues.

In August he returned to Olympiakos on loan and was promptly back to scoring in the Champions League, with a winner against Atletico Madrid no less.

Victor Anichebe spent 12 seasons as a Premier League striker with Everton, West Brom and Sunderland.

Between 2005 and 2017 the Nigerian scored 27 times in 197 appearances, which means he scored roughly once every seven or eight games. In 12 years.

The longevity is to be admired, for Anichebe became the great survivor. Somehow remaining a Premier League striker despite all his shortcomings, he made Bambi on ice look graceful.

Afonso Alves has become the warning from history, the irrefutable proof that you can not trust any football that happens in Holland.

Middlesbrough smashed their transfer record by spending £12.5m on the Brazilian.

And though his goal return was not necessarily that bad, at 10 goals in 42 games, he has become a figure of fun in the intervening years and a symbol of that Boro side which got relegated in 2009.

France proved you didn’t need a striker to win the World Cup when Stephane Guivarc’h toiled on his own to no reward throughout their triumph in 1998.

Kenny Dalglish must have seen something in the Auxerre striker, who had enjoyed success in his own country, when he paid £3.5m to bring him to Newcastle.

He made a bright start, scored on his debut against Liverpool, but then Dalglish was sacked soon after.

Ruud Gullit arrived and promptly got rid of him in November.

When Emile Heskey left for Liverpool for £11m in 2000, Ade Akinbiyi was lined up as a replacement at £5.5m.

After a decent enough return of nine goals in his first season, he hit rock bottom in his second as Leicester hurtled towards Division One.

In a 4-1 defeat by Liverpool in 2001 he missed three sitters and was booed by his own fans. And he didn’t just missed them, he skied every single one.

He broke his duck with the winner against Sunderland - after which he ripped off his shirt to shows his bulging biceps - declared it as a ‘turning point’ before scoring only more in the campaign.

The man, the myth, the legend. The striking flop to end all striking flops.

Allegedly the cousin of World Player of the Year, George Weah, Graeme Souness was hoodwinked into bringing him to Southampton.

He joined in November 1996, made one solitary substitute appearance in place of Matt Le Tissier, before suffering the ignominy of being substituted himself.

He had no discernible skill and was utterly out of his depth. He was released two weeks into his contract.

Mystery, conspiracy theories and anecdotal evidence have followed Dia around ever since his one appearance in the English top-flight. Who is he? How did he get to where he was?

He briefly turned out for Gateshead before disappearing into the unknown.

Jozy Altidore played 70 Premier League games for Hull and Sunderland. He scored a grand total of two Premier League goals.

After a fairly non-eventful loan spell with Hull in 2009-10, he returned to England in 2013 after a prolific few years in the Dutch league with AZ.

Sunderland, managed by Paulo Di Canio, spent £6m on the US international and he repaid their faith with one strike in 42 league games.

Altidore looked big and strong, like anything could hit him and stick. He should have been a colossus, but he just wasn’t.

Clumsy on the ball and wild in front of goal it was the worst of combinations to spearhead a struggling Sunderland side battling relegation.

He left for Toronto in January 2015, with a strike rate of one goal every 35 games that few Premier League strikers can hope to rival.

Arsenal set to sell Theo Walcott: Southampton look to beat Everton and West Ham to signing

Show/hide article…

Theo Walcott has been limited to just two starts this season - both in the Europa League

The Gunners want to raise funds and are preparing for a January clear out at the Emirates.

Mesut Ozil is also in line to be sold with his contract expiring next summer.

And while Walcott’s current deal runs until 2019, Arsenal have no intention of extending it.

Arsene Wenger wants to reshape his side and Walcott is not in his future plans, having struggled for game time this season.

According to the Daily Express, Southampton would pay between £12m and £15m for the 28-year-old.

Saints outcasts give Pellegrino food for thought

Show/hide article…

SAINTS’ outcasts have given Mauricio Pellegrino plenty of food for thought after a friendly win over Fulham at Staplewood.

The Cottagers match was set up for those fringe players and players not on international duty to get some game time and impress the St Mary’s chief.

And it was certainly mission accomplished for two of those out in cold, with Charlie Austin and James Ward-Prowse both scoring in the 2-0 triumph.

Striker Austin has not started a single Premier League match this season, playing just an hour of league football this season so far.

But the 28-year-old gave his manager plenty to think about as he slotted in Nathan Redmond’s cut back in the win over the Championship side.

Saints’ attack has been misfiring this season, with just five goals in total and three from open play in eight games in all competitions.

So it would have been a real plus for Austin to show the Argentine, who was celebrating his 46th birthday by watching his side in this behind-closed-doors match, what he can do.

The former QPR man, who netted a last-minute penalty against West Ham in August but has been restricted to just one start in the Carabao Cup defeat to Wolves, will now hope to get his first league start of the season a week Sunday when Saints welcome Newcastle United to St Mary’s in the Premier League.

Shane Long and Manolo Gabbiadini have been Pellegrino’s first picks upfront so far this campaign, but the goals have yet to start flowing.

Ward-Prowse, who has been also out in the cold after initially being a part of the starting side at the beginning of the campaign, took his chance to impress too.

The midfielder has started just two Premier League games this term, but he laid down a marker with a goal against Fulham, slotting home after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s shot was parried by goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli.

Danish midfielder Hojbjerg, who Saints signed from Bayern Munich for around £12.8m last summer, himself hasn’t been involved at all for Saints this term but would have hoped to catch his manager’s eye in an attempt to force his way into contention.

That seems unlikely at this stage with Mario Lemina and Oriol Romeu very much first choice in the holding midfield department.

Pellegrino will also have run the rule over academy graduates Matt Targett and Sam McQueen as well as forgotten central defender Florin Gardos, who all started this game against the Cottagers.

Meanwhile, an undoubtedly frustrated Jack Stephens will have liked to remind his boss that he is still very much in the first team picture at centre-back, after losing his place following Wesley Hoedt’s arrival and Virgil van Dijk’s comeback.

Stephens was first pick next to Maya Yoshida at the start of the campaign, but has slipped down the pecking order to make way for £15m signing from Lazio Hoedt and Van Dijk, who came back to the fold after his transfer stand-off.

He played the full match at Staplewood.

Saints quartet set for international action

Show/hide article…

Already guaranteed a place in the World Cup finals, Maya Yoshida’s Japan host New Zealand in a friendly at the Toyota Stadium this morning (11.20am BST).

Four Asian nations have already booked a place, with Iran, South Korea and Saudi Arabia all joining Japan on the bill of the 21st edition of the tournament next summer.

Dušan Tadić is also set for international action (7.45pm BST), as Serbia lead the way in Group D. They will secure automatic qualification with a victory away to Austria tonight, or have the buffer of a home tie with Georgia on Monday to gain the necessary points.

Striker Shane Long is set to play at the Aviva Stadium (7.45pm BST), where the Republic of Ireland can keep their play-off hopes alive by defeating Moldova, ahead of a big home game against Wales.

Manolo Gabbiadini also features in tonight’s schedule, as Italy host FYR Macedonia at the Stadio Olimpico di Torino (7.45pm BST).

Italy will be favourites for the win, having already secured at least a play-off place, but trail Spain by three points heading into the final two qualifiers.
