Focused on Flamengo despite Real Madrid C.F. deal, says Vinicius Junior

first_imgTeenage sensation Vinicius Junior said he will not let the publicity surrounding his future move to Real Madrid affect his form for Brazilian club Flamengo.The Spanish giants this week agreed to sign Vinicius for 46 million euros, but the 16-year-old will remain at Flamengo until July 2019, reports Xinhua news agency.”I’m not thinking about that yet. Sometimes the thought of a pass from Cristiano Ronaldo or [Toni] Kroos comes to mind, but right now I’m only thinking about Flamengo. In one or two years from now I can think about Real Madrid, the forward told reporters here on Thursday.Vinicius was an unused substitute in Flamengo’s 2-1 victory over Atletico Goianiense in the Copa do Brasil on Wednesday.Flamengo coach Ze Ricardo was jeered by some fans late in the match for his decision not to use the star.”I said from the very start that we need to be calm. It was in the club’s planning to have him available in the Brazilian Serie A,” Ricardo said.”We will continue with that [way of thinking]. He has already shown that he is adapting and to watch a game from the bench is part of his maturing process,” he added.last_img read more

Report: Arsenal 2 Norwich 1 (aet)

first_imgArsenal 2 Norwich City 1 (after extra time): Nketiah double books Gunners’ EFL Cup quarter-final spot Guy Atkinson Last updated 2 years ago 05:19 10/25/17 Eddie Nketiah - cropped Getty Images Arsenal were second best for long spells against an impressive Norwich side and needed the introduction of Eddie Nketiah to secure the win. Eighteen-year-old Eddie Nketiah scored twice as Arsenal came from behind to beat Norwich City 2-1 and book their spot in the EFL Cup quarter-finals.Nketiah, who made his debut for the Gunners against BATE Borisov earlier this season, was introduced in the 85th minute at the Emirates Stadium with his side trailing to Josh Murphy’s cool first-half finish.The youngster made an immediate impact, equalising with almost his first touch to send the game into extra-time.

First, Oliveira blasted over after 69 minutes before Murphy sent a half-volley wildly over with only Macey to beat.Vrancic then inexplicably fired wide from close range after taking two Arsenal defenders out of the game with a fine dummy.GOALLLLLLLLL!!!!! @joshmurphy65 is sent through by @Madders10 and nonchalantly dinks past the goalkeeper! #ncfcAFC 0-1 NCFC (34)— Norwich City FC (@NorwichCityFC) October 24, 2017They were made to pay for that profligacy in the 85th minute when substitute Nketiah stabbed home from close range to take the game into extra-time.Theo Walcott was denied by a fine Angus Gunn save, but from the resulting corner Nketiah rose highest to send a thumping header into the top corner.Norwich were denied a late penalty when James Husband was hauled down in the area by Mathieu Debuchy, as Arsenal held on thanks to Nketiah’s memorable intervention. read morelast_img read more
