Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill admits his history-making side are well ahead of schedule on the road to Euro 2016 after claiming a third successive win, with star striker Kyle Lafferty already setting his sights on the finals in France. No Northern Ireland side have ever before won their first three matches in any World Cup or European campaign, but O’Neill’s men secured a wonderful 2-0 victory to add Claudio Ranieri’s Greece to a list of victims that already included Hungary and the Faroe Islands. Jamie Ward’s second international goal, a deflected eighth-minute effort, got the ball rolling before the Derby man set up Lafferty for a superb second on the counter-attack. But he is now turning in performances of the highest quality and was not shy about setting his sights on a first major championship appearance. “I’m lost for words,” he told Sky Sports 2. “We won comfortably in the end. We believe we can qualify for Euro 2016 and we have now sent out a massive message to the other nations in the group. “It was lovely to score again and that makes it three in three for me which is very pleasing, but tonight is not about me. “It is about the team who worked for this and are delighted with the result.” The 27-year-old has now scored 12 times in 40 appearances for his country, and O’Neill sees a player who finally matured into a force to be reckoned with on the world stage. “Kyle has all the attributes to play right at the top level of the game – pace, technique, power, size. What he has done in the last three games is bring it all together,” said the manager. “International football suits him, particularly away from home when there is space. “When he plays like that, he is as good as any centre forward that you’d wish to have. “What we’ve seen in the last three games with his focus is a top class international striker developing. Long may it continue.” Ranieri, the well-travelled former Chelsea coach, was jeered from the stands at the final whistle and faces a battle to persuade a sceptical public he remains the right man to lead Greece. Despite being top seeds in Group F, they have lost successive home games and have just one point following Saturday’s draw in Finland. The Italian was quick to play down concerns over his own future and that of his side. “In my opinion everything is still open in the group. We are in a bad situation but we need change and when you need change, you need time,” he said. “This can only be done by playing more together but there are 21 points still out there for us to got so nothing is lost yet.” Ranieri offered some praise for the away side, but blamed his team for opening the door. “Was the game won or lost? I think the truth is in the middle: they played their game and we could not stop them.” Press Association O’Neill is keen to play the pragmatist, insisting third place and a play-off remains his primary objective, but he also had a feeling that a big result was in the offing in Athens. “We wouldn’t have expected to win our first three games but I had a good feeling about this one,” he said. “I said to the players if we had six points after four games we’d probably be relatively pleased, now it’s nine from three. “I thought we were magnificent. The players are delighted too, but I don’t think they’re surprised. “They believed they could come here and get something from the game. “The players have performed so well that there was confidence in them and we got a performance of real discipline and excellent quality when we had the opportunity to break and counter attack.” Leading the dressing room cheer was Lafferty, who has scored in each of the last three matches and is fast becoming a truly talismanic figure with man-of-the-match displays in each of them. The Norwich striker did not score at all in O’Neill’s first campaign, struggling for form, fitness and being sent off against Portugal.
By Richard MartinBARCELONA, Spain (Reuters) – Luis Enrique’s announcement that he will quit Barcelona at the end of the season was expected, but the timing – at the end of a news conference after his side thrashed Sporting Gijon 6-1 – came as a surprise.In fact, he had first considered not renewing his contract beyond next summer during pre-season, he said, after a dramatic slide at the end of the second campaign. Barca had exited the Champions League and could only claim a league title that had looked to be sewn up on the final day of the season.That dip in form, which saw Barca lose three consecutive league games for the first time in 13 years, was the first sign that the wheels were starting to come off a spectacular machine that had rolled to the treble in his first season.Concern grew when Barca slumped to a 2-1 defeat at home against newly promoted Alaves after the coach made a string of changes. His much criticised squad rotation came back to haunt him in a 4-3 defeat at Celta Vigo.Barca remained in the fight for the league title and on Wednesday overtook Real Madrid at the top of La Liga, but they have also failed to convince against the top sides. Their decline culminated in a 4-0 thrashing at Paris St Germain that left them on the brink of an early exit in the Champions League.There was more than a hint of rumbling discontent in the dressing room. Heavyweights Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta publicly criticised the coach’s tactics in Paris, although the coach found an ally in Gerard Pique.The coach also looked rattled after the game in a tense exchange with a Catalan television reporter, whom he harangued for not giving him credit for the team’s successes.While Luis Enrique has long had a prickly relationship with the media, it was becoming clearer that the stress of a role which had worn out predecessor Pep Guardiola was finally getting to him.Barca failed to give a fitting response in their next game against struggling Leganes, rescuing a 2-1 win with a late penalty converted by Lionel Messi, which the Argentine chose not to celebrate.Luis Enrique’s uneasy relationship with Messi nearly cost him his job in January 2015 after the Argentine reacted badly to being left out against Real Sociedad. In general, he appeared to have little personal connection with his squad.These underlying tensions mean Luis Enrique will not be remembered with the same reverence as Guardiola, even though he has delivered a similar trophy haul as his old teammate, who was seen as the spiritual heir to Johan Cruyff, the godfather of the modern Barcelona.President Josep Maria Bartomeu, however, lauded Luis Enrique: “We’ve had a super coach in the last three years,” he declared. “No one can doubt he’s one of the best coaches Barcelona have had and who has fit with our ideas.”Sevilla’s Jorge Sampaoli and Athletic Bilbao’s Ernesto Valverde are the two main candidates to succeed Luis Enrique, although the outgoing coach is believed to want his assistant Juan Carlos Unzue to take over.Argentine Sampaoli has transformed Sevilla into one of the most exciting teams to watch in Europe with a dynamic, possession-based style of play reminiscent of the enthralling football Guardiola served up. He is seen as the fans’ choice, while former Barca player Valverde is reported to be favoured by the board.Messi’s bond with compatriot Sampaoli could be a deciding factor, however. Whoever Barca do appoint will have his work cut out in repeating Luis Enrique’s achievements, even though the coach never managed to satisfy everyone at the club.
A little boy in India is doing well after having more than 500 teeth removed from his mouth.An unusual medical condition caused a seven-year-old boy to grow more than 500 teeth.The boy was complaining about mouth pain and when doctors took x-rays, they found a sac in his jaw filled with abnormal teeth. Scans showed hundreds of masses on the lower right side of his jaw, which led to a five-hour surgical procedure at Chennai’s Saveetha Dental College and Hospital in India.Medics removed 526 denticles from a tumor in the boy’s mouth on July 31, 2019.The hundreds of teeth ranged in size from point one millimeters to around a half-inch.Doctor’s say this unique case and the procedure was their first. Doctors confirm the boy was suffering from a rare condition called compound composite odontoma.They don’t know what causes the condition, but say it could be anything from genetics to environmental factors like radiation.
