Westwood joined Villa from Crewe last August and went on to make 30 Barclays Premier League appearances for the midlands outfit during the 2012-13 campaign. “This time last year I was still on pre-season with Crewe and now I’m signing another contract at Villa, it’s a fantastic feeling for me,” the 23-year-old told www.avfc.co.uk. Aston Villa have confirmed midfielder Ashley Westwood has signed a new four-year deal. Press Association Westwood had already been contracted to Villa through to 2016 from when he completed his move to them on transfer deadline day last summer, and this extension to 2017 is testament to how impressed boss Paul Lambert has been with the performances the Nantwich-born player has put in since then. “I think a lot gets overlooked with Ashley but he has just come in here and has taken to it no problem whatsoever,” Lambert said. “He was captain at Crewe and played a lot of games in men’s football before he came here, so he knew what it was about. “If you look at the stats regarding his passing, they are terrific, something like a 91 per cent success rate. He never seems to give the ball away. He’s been exceptional.” Lambert, who in his first season in charge at Villa guided them to a 15th-placed finish in the top flight last term, has been busy tying several of his players to new contracts this summer, including goalkeeper Brad Guzan, defender Nathan Baker and forward Andreas Weimann. There have also been six new faces brought in and Westwood is certainly not about to take his place in the side for granted. He said: “I love being here and I’m delighted to be part of a great football club. You look at the players the manager has brought to the club and they’re all young and hungry. I just want to be part of that and hopefully we’re building something special here. “From a personal standpoint it’s been great for me here. When I first came I set a target of making a few appearances. I was able to get myself in the team and I stayed there. This year’s going to be a challenge again. “The manager has brought some more young and hungry players to the club and the lads who have been here will have to push on and work our socks off to make sure the manager keeps selecting us. “Competition for places is good. You need that as a player and you need it as a team. It’s healthy for the squad.”

Melbourne: Two-time Grand Slam winner Garbine Muguruza emerged triumphant in the latest women’s match ever held at the Australian Open after defeating Briton Johanna Konta in the early hours of Friday morning. Muguruza and Konta’s match on Margaret Court Arena did not start until 12:30 am Friday morning — a record at the season-opening Grand Slam — and finished with a 6-4, 6-7 (3/7), 7-5 victory for the Spaniard two hours and 42 minutes later at 3:12 am. The start was delayed when the men’s match between Alexander Zverev and Jeremy Chardy turned into three hour 46 minute epic, ending 7-6 (7/5), 6-4, 5-7, 6-7 (6/8), 6-1 for Germany’s Zverev. “I’ll go get some breakfast now,” Muguruza joked after wrapping up the win to set up a third-round clash with Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland. The previous record for the latest start was set last year when a second-round match between Daria Gavrilova and Elise Mertens began at 11:59 pm. The latest end to a match at any Grand Slam was also at Melbourne Park in 2008, when Lleyton Hewitt and Marcos Baghdatis finished a five-setter at 4:34 am. Karolina Pliskova complained about the scheduling last year when her fourth-round match started at 11:00 pm and finished almost three hours later, giving her barely 10 hours before she had to back up against world number one Simona Halep. The schedule is largely determined by local television demands to play high-profile matches in the evening prime time. Despite the hour, both Muguruza and Konta made a contest of their late-night encounter, which was watched live by only a few die-hard spectators. Muguruza, seeded 18, took the first set as she seeks to recapture the form that propelled her to the world number one ranking and delivered a French Open title in 2016 and Wimbledon a year later. Former world number four Konta, a semi-finalist Down Under in 2016, won the second in a tie-break after Muguruza squandered two break points. The Spaniard made no mistake in the third, breaking the Briton late in the set to avoid another tie-break. Muguruza’s match was delayed due to Alexander Zverev’s five-setterMuguruza defeated Konta in three tough setsSchedule is largely determined by local television demands

(REUTERS)-The United States punched their ticket to the 2019 Rugby World Cup with a 52-16 victory over Canada in San Diego on Saturday.The result means the United States will be grouped with England, France, Argentina and a still-to-be-determined Oceania team in Pool C in the tournament in Japan.Canada must now survive a two-leg playoff against a resurgent Uruguay to qualify for a spot in Pool D, a group that includes Australia, Wales and Georgia.Saturday’s game at the University of San Diego followed the first leg in Hamilton, Ontario, last Saturday, where the North American rivals played out a draw for only the second time, finishing locked at 28-28.The Americans dominated the second leg, however, running in eight tries, including two each to Cam Dolan and Joe Taufete’e. They put the game out of reach with three quick tries while Canada’s Tyler Ardron was in the sin bin.The result provided a fitting send-off for retiring U.S. captain Todd Clever. The 34-year-old ends his international career as the Eagles’ most capped senior test player.

Brazil cemented a place in their sixth FIFA U-17 World Cup™ final on Thursday in dramatic fashion, coming from two goals behind to top France 3-2 in Brasilia. After conceding twice in the opening quarter-hour, the tournament hosts clawed their way back into the action.Veron tucked away a rebound off France goalkeeper Melvin Zinga in the 76th minute to knot the match at two goals apiece, then substitute Lazaro struck the winning goal a minute before second-half stoppage time.Now only Mexico separate Brazil from their fourth title at this level. The two sides will square off on Sunday 17 November at Estadio Bezerrao.BrazilBlitzed by their European foes early in the first half, Brazil did well to regain focus and gradually take control of the proceedings.Kaio Jorge’s headed goal in the 62nd minute confirmed on the scoreboard what was already evident on the field: the hosts were back in the match.Fourteen minutes later it was Veron with the equalizer. Lazaro’s match-winner was assisted by none other than goalkeeper Matheus Donelli, whose booming goal kick bounced all the way to No20 five yards from the top of the box, and he did the rest.Now Brazil will have a chance to redeem its defeat in the 2005 final to Mexico.FranceFifteen minutes into the match, it looked as if France might put away Brazil the same way they did Australia and Spain earlier in the knockout phase.First Adil Aouchiche spotted Arnaud Kalimuendo-Muinga carving out space at the top of the box, and the pass, first touch, and finish came in rapid succession.Nathanael Mbuku doubled Les Bleuets’ advantage in the 13th minute, splitting two defenders and ripping a low shot from 12 yards into the back of the net. But from there, France would slowly watch the lead slip from their grasp, and their tournament winning streak comes to an end at five matches.Mexico vs the NetherlandsEduardo Garcia made a trio of terrific penalty shoot-out saves to propel Mexico into the final of the FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019™ on Thursday at Brasilia’s Estadio Bezerrao.The semi-final showdown between El Tri and the Netherlands ended 1-1 after 90 minutes and went directly to spot-kicks.

Melayro Bogarde created the Dutch breakthrough in the 74th minute, but substitute Efrain Alvarez equalized five minutes later with an expertly-curled free-kick from 26 yards.Alvarez began the penalty shoot-out with a Panenka attempt that Calvin Raatsie comfortably saved, but Garcia’s heroics spurred Mexico towards a chance to compete for their third U-17 world title.NetherlandsBogarde’s tip-toeing act down the byline broke open the match for the Netherlands, and it was a deserved goal.The Hoffenheim player burst into the box let lose a cross that was deflected into the back of the net, putting the Dutch ahead. But a moment of brilliance from Alvarez dragged the European champions right back to level terms.Though Raatsie made two saves of his own in the shoot-out, he was out-dueled by Garcia, and the Netherlands fell one step short of their first U-17 World Cup final appearance.
Alberto Callaspo, who was playing for the Braves when Kendrick hurt his knee, also has experience at second base this season and throughout his 10-year career.Who will take Kendrick’s roster spot if he needs the DL was a topic for discussion on the plane ride home. The Dodgers have a pair of second basemen at Triple-A who have been hitting well, Darnell Sweeney and Jose Peraza, though only Peraza is on the 40-man roster. Neither player has appeared in a major league game.Turner progressingDodgers third baseman Justin Turner is on the 15-day disabled list with a skin infection. He’s eligible to return Tuesday but almost certainly won’t – and for good reason. He hasn’t been running.“Now he’s been 10 days, 12 days without running,” Mattingly said. “He’s had some hamstring issues in the past so we’re going to take a couple days to make sure.“I think he hit live BP today … I know he’s going to do it (Monday). He’s moving along. That’s progressing. He hasn’t gone backwards.”Bolsinger to bullpenMike Bolsinger threw 3 2/3 scoreless innings in his first relief appearance at Triple-A Oklahoma City this season. He struck out five of the 11 batters he faced.Mattingly said that Bolsinger would continue to be stretched out in the bullpen, let him throw five-six innings, 80-90 pitches.”Bolsinger started 16 games this season and was optioned to Triple-A when the Dodgers acquired starters Mat Latos and Alex Wood on July 30. He’s expected to rejoin the major league team when rosters expand in September, if not sooner by virtue of an injury.Durable DodgersHowie Kendrick, who left Sunday’s game with a strained left hamstring, has been one of the Dodgers’ most durable position players this season. As ranked by most starts:Adrian Gonzalez, first base: 103 Howie Kendrick, second base: 102 Joc Pederson, center field: 101 Jimmy Rollins, shortstop: 99 Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “After I get healthy this time,” he said, “I’ve got to play cautiously coming back from the injury.”Kiké Hernandez entered the game as a pinch runner, hit a home run in the eighth inning, and played out the remainder of the game at second base. Hernandez will be first in line to pick up the majority of Kendrick’s at-bats. He also filled in at second base in June while Kendrick nursed a stiff knee, an injury that didn’t require the disabled list. Hernandez has been deployed primarily in platoons against left-handed pitchers in his first season with the Dodgers.Speaking generally about Hernandez’s ability as an everyday player, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said “I think he’s got that ability in there, just not sure how — it depends on how your roster is, how you set it up.” PITTSBURGH >> Howie Kendrick was removed in the fifth inning of Sunday’s game against the Pirates with a strained left hamstring. He’ll get an MRI exam today after the Dodgers return to Southern California, the results of which will determine how long the team will be without its starting second baseman and hits leader.“It sucks because it’s that time of year where you want to be on the field,” Kendrick said.Kendrick had just stepped on first base to beat out an infield single when he felt a grabbing sensation in his left hamstring. He’s been on the disabled list with left hamstring injuries three times in a 10-year career, most recently in 2011. This time, Kendrick said, he felt pain in the same area as the last time.
Over the weekend, the Los Angeles Times published a story containing several critical quotes on Puig from his former teammates, such as shortstop Corey Seager saying, “Not really, without, like, bashing him” when asked if he had a favorite story on the outfielder.The piece also included accusations Puig would purposefully ignore coaching instructions on where to stand in the outfield, going so far as to rip up guiding note cards meant to help him in front of Dodgers’ staff.Still, he was greeted by loud cheers from a fan base that has always been enamored by his positive qualities — voracious base running, a cannon arm and a knack for coming through in epic moments.MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNPuig launched a two-run home run off Clayton Kershaw in his first at-bat Monday. Because of course. What else was he going to do?Yasiel Puig with perhaps the moment of the season so far.pic.twitter.com/87hg6CZVq6— Sporting News MLB (@SN Studio_mlb) April 16, 2019Like many trying to make sense of Puig’s career so far, former MLB outfielder Cliff Floyd spoke on the DAZN show “ChangeUp” about the talented Cuban player.Floyd said Puig might be in a better place now that he’s with Cincinnati. Floyd believed the trade from LA could have been a wake-up call for someone whose effort has at times been questioned.“For me, I’ve always felt like Puig didn’t maximize everything with his potential,” Floyd said. “Me personally, I felt like Cincinnati was the best fit for him in terms of the division, ballpark and they needed some excitement, something different to come through those doors every day.” Yasiel Puig returned to Los Angeles on Monday for the first time since the Dodgers traded him to the Reds this past offseason.The occasion sparked emotions on both sides and served as an opportunity for people around the league to take the temperature of his career to this point. Indeed, Puig was supposed to invigorate a Reds squad that finished last in the NL Central in 2018. So far, though, he hasn’t broken out, and neither have his teammates. Entering Monday, Cincinnati was 5-9 and Puig was hitting .163.Perhaps his second dinger of the year, coming against his old club, will spark a torrid stretch that lifts his new one.Or maybe we’ll continue to wait for a sustained run of dominance from Puig that at age 28 could never come.
