Dermot Gallagher declares France penalty was wrong

first_imgFormer Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher has declared that the penalty VAR awarded to France was wrongly given during their 2018 World Cup final match against Croatia on Sunday.During the match, Referee Nestor Pitana had first missed Ivan Perisic’s handball inside the France box, but the official opted the award the spot-kick following a VAR review.Perisic’s view seemed to be blocked by Blaise Matuidi just before the ball struck the Inter Milan winger’s arm, and Gallagher has believed that it was “100% not a penalty”.Euro 2020Report: Euro 2020 qualifying Group H George Patchias – September 11, 2019 Euro 2020 qualifying Group H is being controlled by France and Turkey, but Iceland is still in with a shout.Reigning world champions France ran…“100% not a penalty. He’s far, far too close to the ball as it comes over the forward’s head,” Gallagher told Sky Sports as quoted by Sports Mole.“It just strikes him – he doesn’t move his hand to the ball, he’s got no intention of handling the ball. The law says it has to be deliberate. His arms aren’t in an unorthodox position – it just doesn’t tick any boxes.”Antoine Griezmann netted the penalty to give France a 2-1 lead against Croatia in Moscow, and Les Bleus ultimately claimed the trophy with a 4-2 success over Croatia.last_img read more

PSG president fuming over NeymarReal Madrid links

first_imgParis Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is fuming over the persistent speculation linking Neymar with a move to Real MadridThe Brazilian forward has been constantly linked with a switch to Los Blancos ever since completing his world-record €222million in 2017.This summer both Real and Neymar publicly denied that any move was to materialise.But the rumours have remained, much to Al-Khelaifi’s frustration.The Qatari businessman has even held talks with Real president Florentino Perez over the matter.James Rodriguez, Real MadridZidane hails ‘quality’ James Rodriguez after Real Madrid’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane reserved special praise for James Rodriguez after his starring role in Real Madrid’s 3-2 win over Levante.“We don’t like it at all and we have spoken to Real Madrid,” Al-Khelaifi told Marca.“It’s a bit frustrating, it’s not fair that other clubs talk about our players.“We have a good relationship and they respect PSG, and I hope that’s the truth. We respect Real Madrid, their president, Florentino Perez, but I think that it’s important for everyone not to work behind the scenes.“I don’t know if he understands me. If there is something, we speak, speak with Florentino Perez or whatever it is and we speak about what we like and what we don’t like.“It’s what we want with all clubs, not just Real Madrid.

Schmeichel Pogba hasnt won a war at Man United

first_imgManchester United great Peter Schmeichel insists Paul Pogba mustn’t be allowed to think he’s bigger than the club and backed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to extract the Frenchman’s full potentialAfter being left out of Mourinho’s final game in charge of United in their 3-1 defeat to Liverpool, Pogba was restored to the starting line-up for Solskjaer’s debut at Cardiff City.The World Cup winner responded with an incisive display that saw him provide two assists as United stormed to a convincing 5-1 win.But Schmeichel cautioned United against allowing Pogba to think he’s bigger than them.“Mourinho did put himself in the limelight, not in the correct way or the way that you want the United manager to be,” Schmeichel told BBC Radio 5 Live.“There were stories about the manager being at war with certain players. That’s happened many times, but the club has always been able to deal with that in the dressing room.“I want to see Pogba being a United player as good as everything else he does in life.“He’s absolutely brilliant on social media, and he’s projecting himself to be this incredibly important player.“We’ve seen it at Juventus, we’ve seen it with France, we haven’t seen it with Manchester United and what’s really important here is that no player, regardless of how much money they make, how much they’ve been bought for, has ever been bigger than the club or the manager.Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“This has been now portrayed like Pogba has won a war, this doesn’t work for me, that cannot happen for United.“It’s now really important that the club deal with this situation. Pogba, or any other player, cannot be bigger than the club.”Night, Reds ❤️ #MUFC pic.twitter.com/dXl0HGR3FD— Manchester United (@ManUtd) December 22, 2018However, the former Danish goalkeeper expects old United team-mate Solskjaer to be the man to get Pogba to perform to his expected levels.“Ole is definitely a different personality and a different direction,” Schmeichel added.“He’s stuck to the tradition and the history of the club, and respected it all the way, and had a great run as reserve coach for the club, and this is significant, because he was dealing with players like Pogba and Jesse Lingard, and these players that seem to be the players that Mourinho had problems with.“I think this is key, and the brief that Ole has got is to tame that situation, make someone like Pogba play to the potential that we know already that he has got.”last_img read more

HTC Vive gives Firefox VR browser a boost

first_img Virtual Reality Firefox HTC Microsoft Mozilla CES 2019 Share your voice Post a comment Mobile Internetcenter_img 0 Tags Mozilla promotes VR sites and activities available with its Firefox Reality browser. Screenshot by Stephen Shankland/CNET HTC’s Vive virtual reality headset will include Firefox Reality, giving a boost to Mozilla’s web browser for VR devices and to its broader effort to build an immersive virtual realm on web technology that no single company controls.Mozilla released Firefox Reality in 2018 for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Google Daydream and Magic Leap One. Now, HTC Vive owners won’t need to manually download the browser themselves, HTC and Mozilla said at CES 2019. Instead, Firefox Reality will be the Vive’s default browser.”By ensuring HTC devices have direct integration with a web browser, we make it easier for those creators and users,” Mozilla said Monday in a statement. Vive users can still use other browsers and change the default if they want. Mozilla declined to disclose terms of the partnership.Firefox once was second only to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer in terms of web usage, helping promote the idea that the web was a neutral foundation, not the domain of one powerful company. But over the last decade, Google’s Chrome grew to dominate browsing, and Mozilla’s browser has failed to gain a significant foothold on mobile devices.VR devices and their cousins for augmented reality offer Mozilla a chance to find a new foothold. But that’s only if VR devices catch on widely, which so far they haven’t.Mozilla also has been instrumental in developing technology called WebVR and its broader successor, WebXR, which standardizes the use of web technology to create VR and AR content. If that effort succeeds, it’ll be easier for developers to build software for multiple headsets and not have to recreate content separately for each one.”Through our exciting and innovative collaboration with Mozilla, we’re closing the gap in XR computing, empowering Vive users to get more content in their headset while enabling developers to quickly create content,” HTC Vive Vice President Michael Almeraris said in a statement.CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.CES schedule: It’s six days of jam-packed events.

Dylan Byers Jumps to NBC News MSNBC From CNN

first_imgA CNN spokesman did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.TV-news outlets continue to woo big-name TV anchors, as NBC News did in 2017 when it lured Megyn Kelly from Fox News Channel. But TV isn’t the only screen on which these news stalwarts compete, and Byers’ hire suggests there is also a market in experts who can lend voice to coverage of a juicy niche that can attract attention via digital formats. To be sure, Byers has been on TV, but he’s never served as a regular anchor on CNN’s schedule.NBC News has made noise before about covering the shifting terrain of the media and entertainment industries. In September of last year, NBC News said it would launch a digital “vertical” devoted to media coverage and hired former New York Post reporter Claire Atkinson as a senior editor to guide the effort.  NBC News has posted dispatches looking at everything from ESPN to Amazon to the recent corporate chaos at CBS Corp., and has launched a blog, but the larger effort appears as yet unrealized.“Pacific,” though less than a year old, has begun to gain traction in some circles. A suggestion in one recent edition that politicians who might campaign against President Donald Trump hire their own executive producers, as Trump has with former Fox News co-president Bill Shine, got passed around after Byers suggested it August 13. But there have been missteps as well. On August 1, Byers told readers in the hours before CBS Corp.’s most recent earnings discussion with investors that CBS CEO Leslie Moonves “is prepared to address the recent allegations of sexual misconduct, as well as the legal battle with Shari Redstone over the future of the company” that have been in the news as of late, citing an anonymous source.  Listeners to that call were told in its opening minutes that CBS executives would not discuss those subjects. Dylan Byers, a regular journalistic presence on the media and technology beats in recent years, is jumping to NBC News and MSNBC from CNN. Byers is expected to join the NBCUniversal-owned news outlets next month.The jump marks a blow of sorts to CNN, for which Byers in March launched a newsletter called “Pacific” that covered the convergence of technology and entertainment from Los Angeles. Byers joined CNN in 2015 after serving stints at Politico and Adweek. He graduated from Bard College. At NBCU, he is expected to cover media, Silicon Valley and Hollywood.“The impact of big tech is far-reaching – changing our culture, politics, commerce and much more. Naturally, Dylan will focus on Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Netflix, but he’ll also keep a sharp eye on emerging players,”said NBC News President Noah Oppenheim and MSNBC President Phil Griffin in a memo to staffers. “His work will appear across all our television and digital platforms, including the newly redesigned Tech & Media vertical on NBCNews.com, and he will of course continue his essential newsletter.” Popular on Variety center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

first_imgNetflix has announced it is globally rolling out a new tool designed to help users better control how much data they use when they stream content over mobile networks.Users will now be able to set their mobile data usage by using the app settings menu on updated versions of the iOS and Android Netflix app – letting them specify whether they have high or low data usage caps.“Our goal is to give you more control and greater choice in managing your data usage whether you’re on an unlimited mobile plan or one that’s more restrictive,” said Netflix director of product innovation, Eddy Wu.Netflix said that the default setting will let users stream about three hours of TV shows and movies per gigabyte of data, which in terms of bitrates amounts to roughly 600 Kilobits per second.“Our testing found that, on cellular networks, this setting balances good video quality with lower data usage to help avoid exceeding data caps and incurring overage fees,” said Wu.Netflix first announced plans to launch this  “data saver” feature for its mobile apps back in March.last_img read more
