Coach Margaret Aka says it was frustrating that they couldn’t get the win against Fiji because they led the game twice and really should have been able to hold them out.“Our defence has been a bit of a problem the last two games so that is something we worked on ahead of the game with New Caledonia.“New Caledonia brings plenty in attack, so limiting that will be vital,” Aka said.New Caledonia coach Matthieu Delcroix says defense is also their main focus against a fast and efficient Papua New Guinea attacking unit.“Their forward players are fast and the entire team transitions very well. We will need to watch out for their long ball,” said Delcroix.Delcroix added that PNG is an aggressive team with good technical players.“We have worked on our combination play, so we will see if that works against PNG,” Delcroix said.New Zealand plays Fiji in the first semifinal match today.

0Shares0000Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is not expecting Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to set his team up defensively when the sides clash despite his reputation for “parking the bus” in big matches © AFP/File / PAUL ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 30 – Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is not expecting Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to set his team up defensively when the sides clash on Saturday despite his reputation for “parking the bus” in big matches.United travel to the Emirates Stadium sitting second in the Premier League and on the back of a 4-2 win at Watford in midweek. But Mourinho has yet to win an away game against a fellow “big six” side since taking charge at Old Trafford, with seven games at Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham yielding just three points and one goal.That run includes a 2-0 defeat at Arsenal last season as Wenger recorded his first competitive victory over Mourinho at the 16th attempt.The pair have shared a tumultuous relationship over the years but Wenger does not believe Mourinho, renowned for his defensive tactics in such matches, will only be eyeing a clean sheet in north London this weekend.Asked whether he expected Mourinho to park the bus with a defensive outlook on Saturday, Wenger replied: “No, I don’t expect anything special.“I just expect us to be ready to recover now. Man United is a strong team and I expect us just to cope with the problems they will give us. They will attack as well. They will not only defend.“It is a game between Arsenal and Man United at home. I just want to focus and to prepare well my team, and give my team a good chance to win the game.“Man United is doing well at the moment, we are doing well at the moment, so it looks to be a promising game.”Arsenal welcome United having won their previous three Premier League games to move into the Premier League top four.Victory in the north London derby at home to Tottenham was followed up with a last-gasp win at Burnley before Huddersfield were dispatched 5-0 at the Emirates on Wednesday.That was a 12th successive home win as Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil all got on the scoresheet while Olivier Giroud hit a brace.It was not all positives for Wenger, however, as Lacazette was substituted at half-time with a groin injury, while Sanchez was also replaced late on after feeling his hamstring.Wenger expects Sanchez to be fit to face United, but said club-record signing Lacazette will “certainly be out” of the contest.“Sanchez had a little hamstring problem, that’s why I took him off, but I think he will be all right,” he said.“Look, we have offensive weapons, you know. We have Danny Welbeck, we have Giroud, we have Jack Wilshere who all came on. They are all offensive players.“I will see what I do for Saturday but ideally you wanted him (Lacazette) there.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
1 Lewis Holtby Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby admits he is not thinking about a move away from White Hart Lane and is focused on helping the club win silverware this season.Holtby has been strongly linked with a transfer away from the north London club, with fresh reports suggesting QPR and Crystal Palace are lining up bids to sign the German midfielder.The 23-year-old has started only ten Premier League games following his move from Schalke back in January 2013 and, with the club spending more than £100m on new signings last summer, Holtby seems surplus to requirements.Mauricio Pochettino was missing several key midfielders through injury for the opening game against West Ham, but Holtby still had to settle for a place on the bench.The talented midfielder, however, says he will continue to fight hard for his place in the first-team and feels the club can achieve big things this season.Holtby said: “There is big spirit in the team. When you go out on the pitch you feel that everyone wants to fight for each other – we’ve built this special dressing room atmosphere.“If you’ve got that atmosphere like we did [against West Ham] then we can do something special this season.“Credit to everyone who played, and those who didn’t play, because it’s a team effort.”

Disabled people on training schemes across Donegal must now dig into their own pockets after the Minister for Health removed their free transport.The move has been slammed as a disgrace by Sinn Fein who have demanded Minister James Reilly now reverses his decision.Deputy Padraig MacLochlainn raised the matter in the Dail after the HSE admitted free travel passes could not be used to get to training schemes. He said the new cost-cutting measure simply added to the burden of disabled people in the county.“The decision to remove free transport for disabled people travelling to training day centres in Donegal is disgraceful.“The Minister’s insistence on introducing a €3 charge on these routes is a further burden to disabled persons who have already faced two cuts to their income over recent budgets, with their income being reduced by €16 already.“If they have to pay this bus fare, it will result in a 15% loss in income for the most vulnerable in recent years. It is completely unjustifiable and must be overturned.” Deputy MacLochlainn’s colleague, Cllr Jack Murray said the move was an attack on the weakest in society.“Disabled people in Donegal often travel considerable distances to training centres due to the large rural nature of our county.“For the HSE to inflict charges on disabled people who have no choice but to use public transport is extremely unfair.“This is an added tax on people who receive just €188 a week and is simply an attack on the most vulnerable in our society. Minister James Reilly needs to intervene immediately and overturn this outrageous decision.”Ends UPROAR AS HEALTH MINISTER SCRAPS FREE TRAVEL FOR DISABLED IN DONEGAL was last modified: June 24th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Deputy Padraig MacLochlainndisabledfree transport

Daniel Sturridge equalised after Kolo Toure’s ninth-minute own goal had gifted Fulham the lead at Craven Cottage.Rene Meulensteen’s side, bottom of the Premier League but buoyed by Sunday’s draw at Manchester United, had Liverpool on the back foot straightaway and Simon Mignolet saved Ryan Tunnicliffe’s low shot in the opening minute.The Whites kept up the early pressure and Toure had to react quickly to prevent Darren Bent getting to Kieran Richardson’s left-wing cross.But the next time Richardson crossed from the left Toure contrived to slice the ball into his own net from close range.On-loan Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby almost doubled the lead with a 20-yard effort that fizzed just wide.And Bent headed over from seven yards out after being found by another Richardson cross.Having struggled for most of the first half, Liverpool levelled out of nothing four minutes before the interval.Steven Gerrard carved open the Fulham defence with a perfect through-ball and Sturridge fired in off the far post.Fulham: Stekelenburg; Riether, Heitinga, Burn, Riise; Tunnicliffe, Sidwell, Kvist, Richardson; Holtby; Bent.
