    Gabriel Jesus, Firmino, Fernandinho, Willian, Ederson, Danilo and Coutinho in Brazil Squad

    Brazil boss Tite has named his squad for October qualifiers against Bolivia and Chile in October, with a host of Premier League names called. Brazil travel to La Paz to play Bolivia on 5th October, before finishing off their qualification campaign against Chile in São Paulo on 10th October.
    The Seleção are already guaranteed top spot in CONMEBOL qualifying after picking up 28 points out of a possible 30 in the last 12 months. Tite has still elected to call big names such as Neymar and Gabriel Jesus, but it remains to be seen whether he will subject them to extreme conditions in La Paz.

    Estadio Hernando Siles is situated 12,000 feet above sea level and is notoriously draining for teams not acclimatised to altitude. With qualification sealed and some squad spots up for grabs in Russia next year, Tite may opt to rotate his side for the first match.

    The Brazil boss has made some surprise calls, opting to pick Grêmio’s young defensive midfielder Arthur, who has impressed in the Brasilierão Brasileiro Série B . Fred of Shakhtar Donetsk is also picked and there is a surprise recall for 32 year old Diego Tardelli.

    The Shandong Luneng man was a favourite livescore cm of previous coach Dunga’s, but Tite has resisted calling him until now. Tardelli is in the squad, most likely, because Grêmio’s sought after attacker Luan is injured and unlikely to be available by October.

    Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson keeps his place, having earned his first call up under Tite last month. He will provide back up to first choice Alisson of Roma, Flamengo stopper Alex Muralha completes the goalkeeping trio.

    There is also space for Monaco defender Jemerson and Flamengo midfielder Diego Ribas, who impressed in a friendly for victims of the Chapocoense plane crash back in January. Manchester City’s Danilo has always won his place back in the squad.

    Tite might be tempted to test the likes of Jemerson, Diego, Fred and Arthur in La Paz as he looks to finalise the last 5 or 6 squad spots ahead of Russia 2018. The Seleção’s first XI is pretty settled at this point, as are 5 or 6 of the back-up players.

    But there are 5 or 6 further squad spots up for grabs. Tite has these 2 remaining qualifiers, a pair of friendlies in November and March and a couple of preparatory games in May to help make up his mind on his final 23.

    One of the big advantages of early qualification is an extended trial period and Tite will probably spare Neymar, Miranda, Dani Alves and Renato Augusto the gruelling trip to Bolivia.

    Full squad

    Goalkeepers: Alisson (Roma), Ederson (Manchester City), Alex Muralha (Flamengo)

    Full-backs: Dani Alves (Paris Saint Germain), Danilo (Manchester City), Marcelo (Real Madrid), Filipe Luis (Atletico Madrid)

    Centre halves: Marquinhos (Paris Saint Germain), João Miranda (Inter Milan), Thiago Silva (Paris Saint Germain), Jemerson (Monaco).

    Main Midfielders: Arthur (Grêmio), Paulinho (Barcelona), Renato Augusto (Beijing Guoan), Fred (Shakhtar Donetsk), Fernandinho (Manchester City), Casemiro (True Madrid), Diego Ribas (Flamengo).

    Attackers: Willian (Chelsea), Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool), Roberto Firmino (Liverpool), Neymar (Paris Saint Germain), Gabriel Jesus (Manchester Town), Diego Tardelli (Shandong Luneng).

    Manchester United – Tottenham: New Stage of the English League

    The match between “Manchester” and “Tottenham” will be the last competition of the third round. It should be noted that this match will be of crucial importance. So, “United” was beaten by “Brighton”: the main reason for such a loss was quite an unsuccessful playing of the defense.

    “Tottenham” is also in an interesting situation. For instance, the club representatives haven’t taken advantage of the opportunity to make transfers, so the coach has to win without buying new football players. Even in such a case, the team shows quite good results. Besides, new Harry Kane’s manner of playing is very interesting. He played over ten matches without shooting goals but the player’s shape is improving significantly at the moment.

    “Manchester” can count on the Matic’s participation in the game. He’s taking part in main trainings and perhaps, will play the match. The squad of “Tottenham” may miss Lloris, which is caused by the incident of drunk driving. The most logical substitutor of the player is Michel Vorm.

  4. List of Galway United first divisions fixtures for 2018 season

    List of Galway United first divisions fixtures for 2018 season

    It’s first division football for Galway United in the 2018 season, so we can expect a lot of home wins in Terryland this year.

    Last season was very tough with the bottom three in the Ireland premier division table getting relegated due to shrinking of the top division for the 2018 season. It saw Galway United, Finn Harps and Drogheda United.

    Galway are the 9/4 favourites to win division one with all the top bookmakers, with Longford and Shelbourne next in the betting as 6/1 joint second favourites. Followed by Finn Harps at 7/1 and Cobh Ramblers at 8/1.

    It’s going to be a great season for Galway supporters with three teams close to home – Athlone Town, Longford & Finn Harps. But they also have two very nice away trips to Wexford Youths and Cobh Ramblers.

    Galway have also added a lot of strength to their squad with the additions to Robbie Williams from Cork City.

    “It’s a new challenge,” Williams told Galway United’s official website.

    “I’ve been at Limerick for a good few years and Cork City last year. Shane (Keegan) rang me a few weeks back and I’m delighted to come down to help and hopefully we can fire the team up to where it belongs.

    “I’ll bring my experience in and we’ll guide the young lads to where they need to be. I’ve only been in a few days, but there’s a good bit of talent here. They just need guiding, a little bit of help and and I’ll do that as best I can.

    “We kept the Limerick squad that played in the Premier Division together, so the circumstances are slightly different, but Galway have managed to keep a good few from last year and added a good few as well.

    “It’s going to be a tough league. Three teams came down from the Premier, so we’re going to have to be on our game. A couple more players will probably have to come in, but we will be ready.”

    Galway boss Shane Keegan is looking forward to seeing Williams line out at Eamonn Deacy Park in 2018.

    “He’s a massively important signing for us,” said Keegan. “I’ve mentioned on a couple of occasions that we needed more at the back and until now we’ve been shaping up as a very young squad, so to get his experience in is very important.

    “With Cork he would have picked up a league winners medal last season, and in Limerick’s dominant promotion season in 2016, I think he was the outstanding defender in the First Division.

    “He was named on the PFAI Team Of The Year and he would certainly be at the forefront of your mind as one of the outstanding defenders in the division this season. To get that bit of shrewdness and experience that he brings with http://www.flashlivescore.org/soccer/austria him might be a huge improve to us.”
