While You Were Asleep: De Bruyne backs Haaland to score 800 club goals, Arteta wants quick January signings, Conte feels ‘motivated’ Kane will inspire Tottenham

Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne lauded Erling Haaland and backed the striker to score at least 800 goals at the club level. It took the Norwegian less than 10 minutes to get on the scoresheet in City’s 3-2 thriller against Liverpool in the League Cup on Thursday. Haaland has scored 18 of the team’s table-topping 40 this season, and looks hungry to prove himself after a six-week break. “Erling is so obsessed with goals. He already has about 200 goals, so he can probably go to 600, 700 or 800 if he stays fit and does the things that he does. Erling is a top-level striker. I don’t see Erling as different to a lot of people. He is a normal football player like everybody else and he doesn’t take himself too seriously,” said De Bruyne.

Team with costliest buy has won IPL just once | Cricket News – Times of India

Every year, IPL franchises break the bank to bag the most sought-after players who they believe will make a difference to their fortunes. But teams who get the most expensive player of the auction might want to pause before uncorking the bubbly.With the sole exception of 2013, when Mumbai Indians got Glenn Maxwell for 1 million dollars, the team that bought the most expensive player in an auction has never won the IPL title the same year.But first, a caveat. We have not looked at 'icon players' or retained players, only the players who came up for auction each year.IPL saga: Big expense, low returnNow, let's look at the records. In the very first auction, Mahendra Singh Dhoni was the most expensive player and his team Chennai Super Kings finished as the tournament's runner-up.In 2009, A...

Team India | KL Rahul’s approach, sane selection calls are need of the hour

Stand-in India captain KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and head coach Rahul Dravid talk after wining the second Test against Bangladesh in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on December 25, 2022. | Photo Credit: AP India's batting approach in the two Tests against Bangladesh was a far cry from the aggression promised by KL Rahul and the buck stops at the stand-in captain's doorstep after a close shave in the Mirpur game which could have gone the home team's way. The Indian bowlers did get the 40 wickets on expected lines but their propensity to let the opposition tail wag nearly cost them the second Test which was won by four wickets. The day four surface was challenging but knocking off 145 should still have been a straightforward job for India. Instead, they chose to employ ultra-defensive technique on a trac...

1,200 workers, 24×7 shifts, hundreds of crores: Rourkela set for hockey World Cup

When Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik laid the foundation stone for a new hockey stadium at Rourkela on February 16, 2021 — in the middle of a pandemic — and announced that it would be a second venue for the Men’s FIH Hockey World Cup, many, even within the government, were sceptical about its timely completion. So much so that the International Hockey Federation had to give the state a deadline of November 30 to complete the main structure and lay the turf. For two years since then, over 1,200 migrant workers — many of them from Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal — worked round the clock in three shifts to construct the stadium. And less than three weeks before the first match, the grand saucer-shaped steel structure, with a seating capacity of around 21,000, stands tall over 16 acres of la...
