pubg: PUBG to add this famous Premier League player – Times of India

Son Heung-Min of Tottenham Hotspur is coming to PUBG. The battle royale game would add his character as a player skin, with other battle gear. As per the data miners, the player skin may be added with the 12.2 update that arrives on July 7, that is, tomorrow. Why football all of a sudden? There was this Godzilla vs Kong PUBG event sometime back. The transition from that to the Premier League is a bit strange. As for the relation between the two, it is not that strange. The only connection seems to be that of the native country. Krafton is a South Korean video game maker and Son hails from South Korea also. Maybe the game maker is trying to honor Son because he is a national hero, who plays for the English football clubs. Why wouldn’t Krafton want to celebrate that and help more people k...

Crystal Palace appoint former Nice boss Patrick Vieira as new manager | Football News – Times of India

Crystal Palace have appointed former Nice boss Patrick Vieira as their new manager on a three-year deal to replace Roy Hodgson, the Premier League club said on Sunday. Hodgson left boyhood club Palace at the end of last season after four seasons in charge, guiding them to a 14th-placed finish in his final season. Vieira, who captained Arsenal to three league titles and four FA Cups as a player, was sacked by French Ligue 1 side Nice in December after a stint that lasted 2-1/2 years.

T20 World Cup spots on offer, Australia’s Finch tells below-strength team | Cricket News – Times of India

SYDNEY: Australia limited-overs captain Aaron Finch said on Friday that the absence of several frontline players was an opportunity for others to stake their T20 World Cup claims with a strong performance on the West Indies tour. Pace spearhead Pat Cummins, opener David Warner and all-rounder Glenn Maxwell are among those who have skipped the tour, while batting mainstay Steve Smith is out with an elbow injury. Uncapped fast bowler Wes Agar, the younger brother of established spinner Ashton Agar, has been included in the 18-man squad along with Ben McDermott, Dan Christian and Ashton Turner. "It's a great opportunity to almost take their spots," said Finch, whose team will play five Twenty20 and three one-day internationals against West Indies next month.

Euro 2020: Lacklustre England held as Scotland make their point | Football News – Times of India

LONDON: England missed a chance to book their place in the last 16 at Euro 2020 as Scotland kept their own hopes alive with a well deserved 0-0 draw on Friday. Gareth Southgate's side would have been guaranteed to advance from Group D with a win over their old rivals at Wembley. But lethargic England managed just one shot on target and Scotland's combative display could easily have earned all three points. AS IT HAPPENED | POINTS TABLEDespite a flop that saw them booed off at full-time, England have four points and will be certain of qualifying if they avoid defeat by the Czech Republic in their last group game on Tuesday. Scotland, in their first major tournament since the 1998 World Cup, looked far more composed than in their opening 2-0 loss to the Czech Republic. They remain in with...

Kieffer Moore grabs point for Wales in Euro 2020 opener with Switzerland | Football News – Times of India

BAKU: A header from towering Kieffer Moore claimed a point for Wales in a 1-1 draw with Switzerland in Baku on Saturday to start both teams' Euro 2020 campaigns. Moore responded to Breel Embolo's second-half opener with a quarter of an hour remaining. Both sides trail Group A leaders Italy, who beat Turkey 3-0 in Friday's tournament curtain-raiser. Wales coach Robert Page named Gareth Bale on the left wing as the Real Madrid attacker was one of three Wales survivors in the starting line-up from the 2016 semi-final loss to Portugal. Switzerland boss Vladimir Petkovic kept Benfica's Haris Seferovic and Borussia Moenchengladbach's Breel Embolo up front despite Mario Gavranovic scoring four times in two pre-tournament friendlies. With Petkovic naming a narrow back three, Bale and fellow win...

Chris Woakes returns to England T20I squad for Sri Lanka series | Cricket News – Times of India

BIRMINGHAM: Chris Woakes was recalled to England's Twenty20 squad for the time in almost six years on Saturday after being included in a 16-man party for this month's three-match series at home to Sri Lanka. The Warwickshire all-rounder now has the chance to press his case for involvement in October's T20 World Cup. Although Woakes has been a key member of England's 50-over World Cup-winning side, while also enjoying Test success, has only won eight T20 caps and has not appeared in international cricket's shortest format since November 2015. But the 32-year-old Woakes's appearance in the recent Indian Premier League suggested he still had T20 ambitions, with the delay to the T20 World Cup caused by the coronavirus pandemic and Ed Smith's exit as national selector seemingly bolstering hi...

Norwich City end kit sponsor deal with BK8 after backlash from fans | Football News – Times of India

Premier League club Norwich City on Thursday ended their partnership with kit sponsor BK8 following supporters' criticism of the Asian betting company's provocative marketing material online. Norwich, who won the second-tier Championship last season to qualify for the top flight, had announced BK8 as their new shirt sponsor on Monday for the 2021-22 season. After the deal was announced, the gambling company's sexually provocative images of women were highlighted on social media, sparking a backlash from fans. Norwich asked BK8 to remove the posts and on Thursday apologised to their supporters for any offence caused. "On this occasion, we made an error of judgement. Our standards were not at the levels we demand of our football club," said chief operating officer Ben Kensell. "We remain ...

Tuchel declares Chelsea at full strength for Champions League final | Football News – Times of India

PORTO (Portugal): Chelsea are set to be at full strength for Saturday's Champions League final against Manchester City with N'Golo Kante and goalkeeper Edouard Mendy having now fully shaken off injury problems in the run-up to the game. "Best news ever: no injuries and let's hope it stays like this until after training today," coach Thomas Tuchel told reporters at a press conference on Friday just before his squad's final work-out ahead of the match at the Estadio do Dragao. France midfielder Kante missed Chelsea's final game of the Premier League season at Aston Villa last weekend as a precaution after limping out of the 2-1 win against Leicester City five days earlier with a hamstring problem. Mendy, who has been outstanding since signing from Rennes at the beginning of the season, wa...

Spurs striker Bergwijn is major casualty as Netherlands trim Euro 2020 squad | Football News – Times of India

AMSTERDAM: Forward Steven Bergwijn was dropped on Wednesday as Netherlands coach Frank de Boer finalised his 26-man squad for next month’s European Championship, axing eight players from a preliminary squad named earlier this month. A lack of playing time at Tottenham Hotspur for 23-year-old Bergwijn over the final months of the Premier League looked to have cost him the chance of making the selection as De Boer chose instead the uncapped Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven in his list of strikers. The final squad was released by social media ahead of a news conference that De Boer was giving at 1400 GMT. Veteran goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, who played in the 2010 World Cup final but only recently saw league action with Ajax Amsterdam after years as a reserve at Everton, was chosen as one...

GDANSK (Poland): Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes that winning the Europa League would be the start of "something more" for the club. United take on Spanish side Villarreal in Wednesday's final in Gdansk, looking to win their first trophy since a Europa League success under Jose Mourinho in 2017.

Pep Guardiola.

A decade of heavy investment from City's Abu Dhabi owners has delivered five Premier League titles, three of which have come since Guardiola arrived in Manchester five years ago, including the season that has just finished. But the Champions League has eluded both City and also Guardiola since he won the last of his two European Cups as a coach at Barcelona in 2011. "Sometimes you need time.

Representational Image (AP Photo)BIRMINGHAM: Thomas Tuchel admitted Chelsea were "lucky" to qualify for the Champions League after a favour from bitter rivals Tottenham meant the Blues' 2-1 defeat against Aston Villa did not prove fatal on Sunday.
