fifa15guide – Man United held by West Ham as Mou is sent off, Arsenal beat Bournemouth

Man United and West Ham finished in a 1-1 stalemate that saw Jose Mourinho sent off for a second time this season.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands as his side suffered another frustrating afternoon at Old Trafford, being held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham United.

The Hammers started brightly and were in front after only two minutes — Dimitri Payet whipped in a free kick after he was fouled by Jesse Lingard and Diafra Sakho got away from Zlatan Ibrahimovic to nod the Londoners into the lead.

United quickly stepped up the tempo and were soon back on level terms as Ibrahimovic got onto the end of a superb pass from Paul Pogba to glance home from six yards out.

The Red Devils, however, then had Mourinho sent to the stands after he reacted angrily to a yellow card shown to Pogba, with the Portuguese seen to kick a water bottle.

Chances fell United’s way with Lingard and Rashford going close, while West Ham midfielder Payet was denied by David De Gea down the other end, and the hosts had to settle for a fourth straight home draw in the Premier League.

Alexis Sanchez scored a brace as Arsenal beat Bournemouth 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium.

Alexis Sanchez scored twice as Arsenal ended their usual barren November run with a 3-1 victory over Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium.

The Chilean struck in either half as the hosts ran out winners to end Arsenal’s run of three draws during a month when they notoriously struggle to pick up points.

The Gunners took the lead early on in the first half after Bournemouth defender Steve Cook’s mistake gifted Sanchez his ninth goal of the season, but he visitors got back into the game, with Callum Wilson equalising from the penalty spot after he was brought down in the box by Nacho Monreal.

However, second-half goals from Theo Walcott and Sanchez saw Arsene Wenger’s side win in the Premier League for the first time since Oct. 29.

Charlie Austin’s goal 41 seconds in was the winner, making for an unhappy return for Ronald Koeman to St. Mary’s Stadium.

Ronald Koeman’s return to Southampton was an unhappy one as a goal inside the first minute from Charlie Austin was enough to secure a 1-0 win for the Saints against Everton

Austin scored the only goal of the game with the hosts’ first attack at St Mary’s, nodding home from close range after the ball had come off Saints debutant Josh Sims.

Southampton had the chance to wrap things up late on through James Ward-Prowse, but the midfielder’s strike at the far post was brilliantly saved by Maarten Stekelenburg.

It was a scrappy goal to settle a scrappy game, but Stoke were deserved winners as they bounced back from last week’s defeat by Bournemouth.

Mark Hughes’ patched-up side had too much for a lethargic Watford, who finished with 10 men after a late red card for Miguel Britos as they slipped to a first home defeat since August.

Lionel Messi salvages Barcelona draw; Atletico bounce back to beat Osasuna on fifa15guide

With Barcelona now six points behind Real Madrid in La Liga, the FC crew break down the issues in Luis Enrique’s squad.
Lionel Messi and Barcelona were forced to come from behind to earn a share of the points against Real Sociedad.

Lionel Messi scored in the second half to salvage a 1-1 draw for Barcelona at Real Sociedad on Sunday, while the hosts had a winner incorrectly ruled out for offside.

Sociedad had nearly all the scoring chances in the first half, though they only managed to fire off-target or put in soft shots that Marc-Andre ter Stegen handled.

So it did not come as much of a surpise when Sociedad took the lead in the 53rd minute. Mexico international Carlos Vela ran in on goal and although Ter Stegen stopped his shot the rebound fell to Willian Jose to head in, and Gerard Pique on the line could not keep it from going in.

But the lead lasted only six minutes until Neymar dribbled down the wing and centred the ball for Messi, who took a touch before lashing home the equaliser.

Sociedad should have had the winner 15 minutes from time when Vela slammed a shot against the underside of the bar, and Juanmi was wrongly adjudged to be offside when he followed up to tap the ball into the net.

The result leaves Barca six points adrift of leaders Real Madrid through a third of the season before El Clasico next weekend, while Sociedad moved into fifth.

Kevin Gameiro doubled Atletico’s lead in a straightforward victory at Osasuna.

Diego Godin and Kevin Gameiro scored within two minutes of each other as Atletico Madrid bounced back from their derby disappointment with a 3-0 La Liga victory at Osasuna.

Diego Simone’s men were defeated 3-0 by rivals Real Madrid at home last weekend, seven days after losing against Real Sociedad, but they got back on track domestically with a comfortable win on the road.

An early penalty save from Jan Oblak prevented them from falling behind, and Godin — on a header following a corner — and Gameiro found the net in the 36th and 37th minute.

Yannick Carrasco then slotted slotting under Nauzet Perez in stoppage time to leave struggling Osasuna in the relegation zone.

Ibai and Victor Camarasa struck first-half goals as Alaves recorded a surprise 2-0 victory at high-flying Villarreal.

Winger Ibai slotted in from close range with eight minutes played after Deyverson’s header came back off the left post following a right-wing cross from Edgar.

Villarreal, who were fourth going into the game, fell further behind when midfielder Camarasa, on loan from Levante, doubled the advantage in the 19th minute, seizing on some woeful defending by Argentine Mateo Musacchio to poke the ball past Sergio Asenjo.

Celta Vigo maintained their fine home form with a 3-1 victory over bottom-of-the-table Granada as Iago Aspas shone again.

Aspas scored his 10th goal of the season in just 17 games to set the ball rolling before setting up 21-year-old Belgian Theo Bongonda to find the net for the first time this term.

Although Artem Kravets pulled one back, a stoppage-time effort from substitute Pape Cheikh Diop stretched winless Granada’s run to 13 games without victory.

fifa15guide – Brian Schmetzer praises Sounders for finding ways to win after West final

Jordan Morris scored the lone goal of the second leg as Seattle clinched their first-ever berth in the MLS Cup Final.

Seattle coach Brian Schmetzer praised the Sounders for finding different ways to win as they advanced to the MLS Cup final for the first time club history on Sunday.

Jordan Morris’ second-half goal secured a 1-0 win in the second leg of the Western Conference final in Colorado, and the Sounders advanced 3-1 on aggregate.

“It’s some of the intangibles,” Schmetzer said on ESPN after the game.”They never quit. Jordy [Morris] was beat up, tired. Nelson Valdez, the guys at the back, the whole team just kind of figures out ways how to win games. That’s their biggest strength.”

Although the Sounders have made the playoffs in every season they’ve been in the league, the MLS Cup berth comes in the most unlikely of seasons, which saw Seattle 10 points outside of the postseason picture when longtime manager Sigi Schmid was fired in July.

Then in August, star player Clint Dempsey was sidelined for the rest of the season with an irregular heartbeat.

But Schmetzer, a longtime assistant under Schmid, still managed to lead Seattle to a fourth-place finish in the West, though he declined to take credit on Sunday, instead thanking his staff and players.

“I had [Nicolas] Lodeiro come, we had Roman [Torres] come back, I had some inspired play by our captain now, Ozzie [Alonso]. Everybody pitched in,” Schmetzer said.

“[Erik] Freiburg, who was a late scratch today, busted his you-know-what to get us to this point, so it’s the whole entire team effort that has brought us here.”

The Sounders were crowned Western Conference champions on Sunday.

Schmetzer cited a 3-1 win at Orlando City on Aug. 7 as being instrumental to the team’s turnaround. From that point, Seattle won eight of their remaining 13 MLS games, losing just two.

“Each game is different. The LA game away, Orlando away, this game here against a tough opponent, they find ways to win,” Schmetzer said.

“I always hark back to that Orlando game when Deuce was still here, because Dempsey was a big part of the team. He’s still a big part of our team.

“They really felt that they could start winning some games after that performance. That was a strong performance for us.”

Morris became the second MLS rookie to score in both legs of a conference championship, joining the Galaxy’s Greg Vanney in 1996.

He credited an increase in confidence for helping him overcome a slow start to lead the team with 12 goals in the regular season.

“At the beginning of the year things weren’t going in. I was listening too much to the outside world,” Morris said. “I put that all away and once I got the first goal I kind of got the monkey off my back and I’m playing with more confidence. That’s the biggest thing.”

The Rapids took 16 shots to Seattle’s five, but the hosts failed to put any on target.

“We had a couple of good looks on goal,” Colorado coach Pablo Mastroeni said. “Those go in and it’s a whole different game. I thought we were in control of the game, we did everything we set out to do and to get beat on a strange play, that’s football.”

fifa15guide – Mixed emotions for Dedevbo and Nigeria

Nigeria’s players and coach were caught in a tangle of mixed emotions following their final Group B game against Spain at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Papua New Guinea 2016.

The African side could justifiably look back on a precious victory against the UEFA European Women’s U-19 Championship runners-up, coming out on top to finish level on points with their opponents and Japan. Having lost heavily to Japan on the opening day, however, Nigeria were left facing an early trip home due to their inferior goal difference.

That did not stop them from a lengthy bout of celebrations after the final whistle, with captain Chinwendu Ihezuo bringing her team-mates together before they congratulated their Spanish rivals in an admirable spirit of fair play. As for coach Peter Dedevbo, he was left nursing regrets after hoping to build on Nigeria’s runners-up finish two years ago.

After the game, FIFA.com spoke to the man in charge about his team’s performances at Papua New Guinea 2016 and their group stage elimination.

FIFA.com: Despite beating Spain today, your team have been knocked out of the tournament. What would you pinpoint as the reasons for your early exit?
Peter Dedevbo: In the first match against Japan, we lost 6-0. That defeat is very painful because it cost us qualification to the next round.

How did you motivate your players after that heavy defeat? Your team bounced back with wins against Canada and Spain.
When you lose the first match in a competition, you have to work very hard to get back in the saddle. You need to win, and that’s what we did. After the first game, we told the players they absolutely had to win the next two matches, and that message went over well. We tried to score as many goals as possible, but it wasn’t enough to keep us in the tournament.

Your players celebrated the win today even though it did not result in qualification.
They were pleased to have won because nobody will be disappointed with our performance when we return home. We still managed to win two matches.

You do not seem happy, on the other hand.
That’s true, because I hadn’t foreseen us getting knocked out. We wanted to go far in this tournament.

What do you think your players will have learned from this competition?
They know now that the first match is the most important in the whole tournament because it sets the tone for the rest. When you lose the first game, it’s difficult to get back in the running.

FIFA 17: We spoke to Sam Sargeant, the worst rated player on the game

It is virtually every young footballer’s dream to make it as a pro.

But once you make it as a pro, there’s one moment that holds a special place in their hearts – the first time they appear on FIFA.

And while the Marcus Rashford’s of this world might enter the game on a tidy 76 rating, there’s a few that lag a little bit behind.

One of those players in question is Leyton Orient goalkeeper Sam Sargeant.

The 19-year-old has the dubious honour of being the joint worst rated player on FIFA 17, with the 19-year-old receiving a mere 45 rating for this year’s game.

sargeant

Dream Team caught up with the keeper, who graciously accepted that while the rating is slightly undesirable, being on the game itself is special enough.

“You grow up as a kid and you want to be on these games, so even though my rating is dreadful, it’s good to see my face there on the FUT card,” Sargeant said.

“The joint lowest rated on the game? I’ll claim that as a trophy. The first thought after seeing my card was ‘Wow, I’m actually on the game.’

“Then I looked at my stats and was like, ‘Oh, they’ve been a bit harsh here, no-one’s going to use me in the game except for myself!”

He continued: “To be fair, I haven’t even used myself on the game. I’m too scared, I can’t be losing games on Ultimate Team because of my own card.

“But the rating wasn’t a massive issue for me because it was just being on it that mattered.”

Players’ ratings are a big deal for those in the professional realm. One only has to see the way Dele Alli and Harry Kane act when guessing their ratings to know how seriously some of the world’s best players take it.

So when Orient’s ratings were revealed for the first time to Sargeant and his team-mates, he instantly knew he could be on the wrong end of changing room chat.

“The lads at football still give me stick about it now, but that’s all part and parcel of the changing room banter – I laugh along with them because I can see why they’re laughing.

“But my schoolmates have all said about how incredible it is that I’m just on the game itself. I’ve got a younger brother and all his mates have bought me on the game and got excited about the fact I was on the game.”

The goalkeeper, who was part of an England training camp alongside some of the country’s best stoppers earliest this year, said that one of the first things he did when he got the new game was something we could all relate to.

Sargeant said: “The first thing I did on Ultimate Team was buy myself on the transfer market – I’m only 45 rated so I was really cheap, so it was easy to pick myself up.

“I’m just sitting in My Club at the moment, with not a game to my name, but when I build the confidence up I might put myself on.

“Last year when I was first on it, just on Career Mode, I was so excited to be on it that I made a Manager Mode career mode as Orient every single opportunity I had I trained myself up and I got up to an 87 rated – the graft was unreal but I was that excited to be on it.

“Last year I got added in but I didn’t have my face on there, this year was the first year I was on Ultimate Team so it was special for me because that’s the main game mode I play, so to see yourself on it is quite surreal.”

sarge-1

While Sargeant has enjoyed success in real life on the pitch with the O’s, playing three times this season for the East London club, he has a very simple message to the creators of FIFA 17, EA Sports.

“Please make my rating higher! I don’t want to sound big time, but if you see fit or you get the opportunity to give my stats a little bit of a boost, that would be very much appreciated.”
