Sports / Cadiz Vs Manchester United 4-2 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 11:21pm On Dec 07, 2022
Cadiz defeat Manchester United by 4-2 in an International friendly Match.

Carlos Garcia put the home side 1-0 up from a wide free kick after just eight minutes as Victor Lindelof completely mistimed his header, allowing the Cadiz midfielder to dive in low to head back across goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

Things then went from bad to worse for United as they were again caught sleeping at the back – with Anthony Lozano left completely unmarked and centre-backs Lindelof and Teden Mengi nowhere near one another – as the Cadiz striker gave the Spanish side a 2-0 lead after just 14 minutes played.

That saw United left with a mountain to climb before Erik ten Hag’s side were handed a penalty as Zidane Iqbal combined wonderfully with Anthony Martial, before being brought down inside the box by Cadiz defender Luis Hernandez.

Up stepped Frenchman Martial, who slotted home his spot kick with a cheeky Panenka to make it 2-1 after 21 minutes at the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla.

Both sides had chances before half-time – with Iqbal and Martial looking particularly impressive for United – but Ten Hag’s side went into the break with plenty to do to turn the game around.

The Dutchman made a whopping 10 changes at half-time, changing his entire outfield and only keeping goalkeeper Dubravka.

Goncalo Ramos bagged a hattrick as Portugal thrashed Switzerland 6-1 to reach the 2022 World Cup quarter-finals.

The big news ahead of the match at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar was that Ronaldo had been dropped to the bench following his antics in the defeat to South Korea.

But even without the legendary forward, Fernando Santos’ side completely dominated for 90 minutes, with 21-year-old Benfica striker Ramos opening the scoring after just 17 minutes with a powerful strike.

In the absence of Ronaldo, 39-year-old Pepe skippered Portugal and doubled their lead before half-time, heading in from Bruno Fernandes’ corner

Sports / Morocco Vs Spain 0-0 [PEN 3-0 ] Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 7:12pm On Dec 06, 2022
Spain are out of the World Cup after losing a penalty shootout to Morocco 3-1 in the last 16 stage after both sides failed to score in 120 minutes.

Luis Enrique, who went with Marcos Llorente at right-back, saw his side have 70 per cent possession in the first-half but create few chances in a largely dull 45 minutes.

They had a bright three minute spell with Gavi hitting the crossbar after a mistake at the back,

but an offside flag was raised, and Marcos Asensio smashing a shot into the side-netting but for the most part the North African side defended well.

Sports / Brazil Vs South Korea 4-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 10:23pm On Dec 05, 2022
Vinicius open the goal scoring as Brazil beat South Korea 4-1 and moved into the last eight.

The five-time world champions blitzed their opponents with a bewitching first-half display where they scored four times in 36 minutes.

Vinicius Junior steered home a lovely opener before Neymar moved to within one of Pele’s all-time record goal-haul for his country with a confident penalty on 13 minutes.

Richarlison then scored one of the goals of the tournament when he juggled the ball with his head before surging on to a sensational return pass from Thiago Silva to slot home.

South Korea simply had no answer as they were continually exposed trying to deploy a positive game-plan and it was no surprise when Lucas Paqueta volleyed in the fourth.

Brazil took their foot off the gas in the second period but still went close through Raphinha before substitute Paik Seung-Ho struck a sensational consolation for the Koreans 13 minutes from time.

Brazil will now look ahead to Friday’s quarter-final clash with 2018 runners-up Croatia.

England thrash Senegal by 3-0 to set up a quarter-final with defending champions France.

Senegal had the better of the first half an hour, creating a couple of good opportunities and limiting England to very little in attack.

Jordan Pickford pulled off a superb save to deny Boulaye Dia from close range.

England made Senegal pay with a superb sweeping move on the 38th minute,

Jude Bellingham hooked it across for Jordan Henderson who was on hand to finish emphatically from close range.

Just five minutes later England had a second, Harry Kane grabbed his first goal of this World Cup, thumping home to make it 2-0.

The Three Lions made it 3-0 on the 57th minute, Phil Foden played a super ball into Bukayo Saka who deftly lifted the ball over Edouard Mendy.

England managed the game superbly in the second period, limiting Senegal to zero shots on target.

Argentina beat Australia by 2-1 to reach the World Cup quarter-finals.

Messi, 35, was winning his 119th cap for his country and they needed his brilliance to take them through to the next round and a tantalising tie against the Netherlands on Friday.

Argentina had barely threatened in the first half but Paris St-Germain's Messi stroked in a delightful low finish to spark wild celebrations from their fans.
The South American supporters had been on their feet singing all game and they had further delight when Julian Alvarez punished Mat Ryan's mistake to double their advantage.

Australia had offered very little but surprisingly pulled one back with 13 minutes remaining when substitute Craig Goodwin's strike took a huge deflection off Enzo Fernandez.

They could have levelled shortly after through Aziz Behich, whose incredible solo run took him past four players, but his shot was superbly blocked by Lisandro Martinez's sliding challenge as Argentina edged through.

Sports / Cameroon Vs Brazil 1-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 5:05am On Dec 03, 2022
Cameroon defeated a Brazil side resting a host of regulars but still saw their World Cup campaign ended after an entertaining encounter at Lusail Stadium.

Vincent Aboubakar header the winner in stoppage time but his joy immediately turned to disappointment as he was given a second yellow card for taking his shirt off.

Cameroon had acquitted themselves well throughout as Bryan Mbuemo brought an outstanding save from Manchester City's

 Ederson, deputising for Liverpool keeper Alisson, but Switzerland's victory over Serbia ended the African team's chances of reaching the last 16.

With his side having already qualified after their first two games, Brazil coach Tite made 10 changes and Arsenal's Gabriel Martinelli took

 the chance to impress with a fine performance in which he was thwarted on several occasions by Cameroon keeper Devis Epassy.

The pre-tournament favourites finished top of Group G despite the loss and now meet South Korea in the knockout phase after their

 dramatic late win against Portugal saw them edge out Uruguay, who beat Ghana, on goals scored.

Georgian De Arrascaeta scored twice for Uruguay to beat Ghana 2-0, but it wasn’t enough to send them to the last 16.

The midfielder opened the scoring after 26 minutes with a close-range header as he followed up Luis Suarez’s saved effort.

Suarez, who was inevitably involved in a replay of the controversial 2010 South Africa World Cup tie, set up De Arrascaeta excellently for his

 second as he clipped a ball over the top of the Ghana defence for De Arrascaeta to latch onto and fire home.

As the match entered the final ten minutes Uruguay thought they had done enough to reach the knockouts,

only for South Korea to score a late winner against group winners Portugal to clinch second spot.

South Korea came from behind to defeat Portugal by 2-1 


Paolo Bento’s side did it the hard way as they were forced to come from behind, but in the end

 the Wolves striker’s goal in second half injury time saw his side beat Uruguay to secure second place in Group H on goals scored.

Fernando Santos made six changes as, with their passage to the round-of-16 already confirmed, he rested some of his senior players, including Bruno Fernandes.

They still made an electric start though, netting after just five minutes as Ricardo Horta converted from Diogo Dalot’s low cross.

Sports / Costa Rica Vs Germany 2-4 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 3:51am On Dec 02, 2022
Germany have been eliminated from Qatar World Cup despite coming from behind to defeat stubborn Costa Rica 4-2.

It took Germany only 10 minutes to open the scoring, Serge Gnabry’s bullet header from David Raum’s cross leaving Keylor Navas with no chance.

Indeed, they should have been out of sight when Costa Rica’s Keysher Fuller got in behind following an Antonio Rudiger mistake but was denied by a brilliant save from Manuel Neuer,

who was making a goalkeeper’s record 19th appearance at the World Cup.

Like in their opening game against Japan, though, they were left stunned when Costa Rica grabbed an equaliser against the run of play.

Yeltsin Tejeda pounced on the rebound after Neuer could only parry Kendall Waston’s header.

There was still over half an hour to play, but it seemed Germany’s luck was out as Musiala (twice) and then Rudiger struck the post three times in seven minutes.

Germany were hit with a sucker punch when Juan Pablo Vargas gave Costa Rica a shock lead, but the game was turned on its head again thanks to a double from substitute Kai Havertz.

Niclas Fullkrug added a late fourth, but, alas, it wasn't enough, and for the second consecutive World Cup finals Germany have been knocked out at the group stage.

Japan top the group with six points and Germany miss out on goal difference as Spain take the runners-up place.

Japan made it to last 16 of the World Cup after a shock 2-1 win over Spain.

Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata's header gave spain the lead in the first half.

Second half two strikes from Ritsu Doan and Ao Tanaka after the break were enough for Japan to seal place in the knockout stages.

Spain finish as group runners-up on four points by virtue of their superior goal difference over Germany, who came from behind to beat Costa Rica 4-2.

Morocco top  the Group F  after beating Canada 2-1 to reach the last 16 of the World Cup for the first time since 1986.

The African side were gifted their opener, as Canada’s goalkeeper Milan Borjan made a

 horror mistake by giving the ball to Hakim Ziyech, who chipped it into an empty net within the first five minutes.

Things got worse for John Herdman’s side when Youssef En-Nesyri latched onto a long ball and finished brilliantly as the Atlas Lions made the most of their dominance.

Canada had some fortune and pulled one back just before half-time when Nayef Aguerd deflected a cross into his own goal.

They were much improved after the break and hit the bar when Atiba Hutchinson climbed highest and headed at goal, however, Morocco defended resiliently to hold on.

Sports / Wales Vs England 0-3 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 12:30am On Nov 30, 2022
England beat Wales 3-0 to win Group B and set up a Round of 16 clash with Senegal.

The Three Lions dominated the ball in the first half, with the Welsh side sitting deep and looking to counter when they could.

Gareth Southgate's men started to really test the Welsh defence towards the end of the first half.

Despite needing a win, Rob Page would have been fairly happy with Wales' performance in the first half.

England flew out of the blocks in the second half and within six minutes of the second half they found themselves 2-0 up.

Marcus Rashford put the Three Lions 1-0 up with a thumping free-kick and just one minute later Phil Foden made it two, firing home following a great Harry Kane cross.

Wales began to go forward with more frequency but as a result left bigger gaps at the back for England to exploit.

Marcus Rashford made it 3-0 on 68 minutes, cutting inside superbly on the right-hand side before lashing home an effort through Danny Ward's legs.

Sports / Ecuador Vs Senegal 1-2 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 6:31pm On Nov 29, 2022
Kalidou Koulibaly’s superb volley earned Senegal a place in the World Cup knock-out stages for just the second time as they beat Ecuador 2-1.

All three goals came from players based in England as Ecuador's Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo cancelled out a penalty by

 Watford's Ismaila Sarr before Chelsea defender Koulibaly's side-footer won it.

Ecuador needed just a point to progress but paid the price for a passive display as Senegal were spurred on by an almost non-stop

 cacophony of drumming from their supporters in Al Rayyan.

Watford winger Sarr coolly stroked home from the spot, after being clumsily upended by Ecuador defender Piero Hincapie, to put the African champions deservedly ahead.

Ecuador levelled with their first real chance as Caicedo swept home Felix Torres' flick-on but

 Koulibaly's composed finish immediately regained the lead for Senegal, who knew only victory would be enough to go through barring an unlikely Qatar upset against the Netherlands.

They held out amid a nervy six minutes of stoppage time to finish as runners-up in Group A behind the Dutch, who clinched top spot by handing the tournament hosts a third defeat in three games with a comfortable 2-0 win in Al Khor.

Aliou Cisse's side are potential last-16 opponents for England given the Lions of Teranga will next face the winners of Group B - a berth Gareth Southgate's team could seal later on Tuesday.

Croatia fight back to defeat Canada by 4-1 as Alphonso Davies got his country off to a flying start by scoring their first ever World Cup goal.
Bayern Munich winger Davies put Canada ahead after only 67 seconds, darting into the box and meeting Tajon Buchanan’s cross with a towering header in the game’s first attack.

Croatia did not panic after falling behind, though, and created numerous chances, with striker Andrej Kramaric seeing a goal ruled out for offside.

The former Leicester player did equalise when he found the net with a first-time angled shot from Ivan Perisic’s pass, and Marko Livaja put Croatia ahead with a rasping drive from the edge of the box.

Morocco caused the latest shock at a World Cup that has been full of surprises by beating Belgium thanks to late goals by Abdelhamid Sabiri and Zakaria Aboukhlal.
Belgium keeper Thibaut Courtois was at fault for the first goal, inexplicably allowing Sabiri’s inswinging free-kick to beat him at his near post with 17 minutes to go.

But the whole Belgium side paid the price for a ponderous performance, with Morocco capping a magnificent second-half display when Aboukhlal fired Hakim Ziyech’s cutback into the roof of the net in stoppage time.

That sparked wild celebrations in the stands of Al Thumama Stadium from thousands of Morocco fans, who had created a raucous atmosphere from the start.

The result means Morocco move above Belgium to the top of Group F on four points.

Costa Rica defeat Japan by 1-0 with their first and only shot on target so far at the 2022 World Cup.
Costa Rica worked very well without the ball, and were quick to pick up loose balls as well as making several terrific tackles.

The issue was that when they had the ball they didn’t really know what to do with it.


Japan tried but failed to get a passing rhythm going, with Costa Rica’s shape making it difficult for the Asian side to play through the lines.

Hajime Moriyasu made two changes at half-time and Japan greatly improved, having two quick shots on target of the match within the first two minutes of the second period.


Japan started to get on the ball and dictate proceedings, showing much better invention on the ball to play through Costa Rica.

Costa Rica really struggled to get up the pitch as Japan increased their intensity,

but 10 minutes from time Keysher Fuller found space to bend one in against the run of play with Costa Rica‘s first shot on target of the World Cup!

Lionel Messi  goals and an assist to Enzo Fernandez to keep Argentina in the World Cup to secure a 2-0 win over Mexico.

Although dominating possession, Argentina looked far from certain to break the deadlock with Mexico defending with great organisation and numbers.

However, 19 minutes into the second half Messi received a square ball from Angel Di Maria and

 with his first touch pushed the ball in front of him, giving him the space to drill his second contact low inside the corner giving Guillermo Ochoa no chance.

Talented young midfielder added a stunner of his own in the final minutes as he took the ball from a corner and curled an unstoppable shot into the corner.

The victory moves Argentina second in the group with three points,

one behind next opponents Poland and above Saudi Arabia on goal difference.

Kylian Mbappe scored twice for France as the defending champions laid down a marker by beating Denmark to become the first team into the World Cup knockout stage.

The 23-year-old forward, France’s youngest scorer in the competition, stole the show once again with second-half strikes to take his side through.

Mbappe had earlier blazed over from 12 yards and forced Kasper Schmeichel into a save with a rising shot.

But the Paris St-Germain star broke the deadlock just past the hour mark, exchanging a fine one-two with Theo Hernandez before stroking in.

Denmark equalised just seven minutes later with their first effort on target as defender Andreas Christensen headed home at the far post after France failed to clear a corner.

Christensen, though, may have counted himself lucky to still be on the pitch at that point after receiving only a yellow card on 20 minutes for dragging back Mbappe, who was looking to run clear.

France keeper Hugo Lloris made a sharp stop to keep out Tottenham team-mate Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s first-time shot while Martin Braithwaite agonisingly fired into the side netting.

But with four minutes left, Mbappe had the final say, sneaking in at the far post to convert Antoine Griezmann’s cross.

Richarlison lit up the World Cup with a moment of Brazilian magic as the tournament favourites overcame Serbia's stubborn resistance to open their campaign with an impressive victory.

Brazil had to play a patient game to break down an organised Serbia rearguard but forced the breakthrough after 62 minutes when Tottenham striker Richarlison turned home a close-range finish after Vanja Milinkovic-Savic saved Vinicius Junior's effort.

Richarlison's crowning moment came 11 minutes later, at first mis-controlling a pass from Vinicius but readjusting brilliantly to take the aerial route and fire home an acrobatic right-foot finish.

It was no more than Brazil - backed by the massed ranks of their yellow-clad fans - deserved as they dominated throughout, with Alex Sandro and Casemiro hitting the woodwork and Milinkovic-Savic also saving superbly from Fred.

Brazil's performance made ominous viewing for their rivals, as did the sight of Gabriel Jesus, Antony and Gabriel Martinelli coming off the bench in a powerful show of squad strength, although there was the worrying sight of Neymar going off after taking a knock.

Portugal got their World Cup campaign off to a winning start with a 3-2 win over Ghana at Stadium 974.
Cristiano Ronaldo became the first man to score in five different World Cups, his penalty giving his side the lead.

Andre Ayew then equalised for Ghana, before Joao Felix and Rafael Leao gave Portugal the win.


Portugal dominated territory and ball in a tedious opening 45, the two chances they creates falling to Ronaldo.

The first one slipped away thanks to a poor first touch and the second went begging when he headed wide having done all the hard work in climbing to meet a cross.


Things were much better after the break, Portugal handed the lead for a foul that just wasn’t, Mohammed Salisu on Ronaldo.

Ronaldo slammed home from the post, but Ghana, inspired by Mohammed Kudus, soon equalised through Ayew.

Otto Addo, though, opted to take off both his strikers and within seconds, Portugal were 3-1in front,

Bruno Fernandes creating goals for Felix and Ayew that put this team in control of Group H and a gloss on the scoreline that their performance did not really deserve.


Then, just when it seemed like Ghana had given up, Osman Bukari scored a livener, but despite nine added minutes, Portugal hung on for the win.

The Cameroon-born striker broke the deadlock minutes into the second half after an end-to-end first half ended all square.

Switzerland were dominant in the opening exchanges of the first half but it was Cameroon

who had the better chances as Karl Toko-Ekambi and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting wasted key chances.

After the break, Switzerland were quick out of the blocks again and took advantage this time as Embolo fired them ahead from close-range in the 48th minute.

It’s Switzerland’s sixth straight opening game at the World Cup without defeat, their last loss coming against Germany in 1966.

The result means the Red Devils move top of Group F with Croatia and Morocco both tied on one point – following their 0-0 draw earlier on Wednesday - after the opening round of matches.

Canada’s pace caused Belgium’s aging backline a wealth of problems and they had the chance

to take the lead in the 13th minute from the penalty spot after a Yannick Carrasco handball at a corner.

Alphonso Davies stepped up but his poor shot was denied by Thibaut Courtois who dived low to his right to make the stop.

Canada continued to pressure and had a penalty shout reviewed by VAR in the 39th

minute when Richie Laryea went down in the area under a challenge from Axel Witsel, but it was deemed to not be a penalty.

Two minutes before half time and Belgium took the lead against the run if play through Batshuayi.

He latched onto a hopeful long ball by Toby Alderweireld and slotted his shot into the bottom corner.

Substitutes Ritsu Doan and Takuma Asano scored second-half goals to earn Japan a

memorable victory at the Khalifa International Stadium.


There was a collective pause in the arena as the ball rolled down from the roof of the net before supporters realised it had gone in.

Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan had given Germany the lead from the penalty spot in the first half, before Japan substitute Ritsu Doan equalised in the 75th minute.

The equaliser came after a string of stunning saves at each end – Japan’s Shuichi Gonda

Sports / World Cup: Qatar Vs Ecuador 0-2 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 7:23pm On Nov 20, 2022
Qatar became the first hosts to lose their opening game of the tournament, falling 2-0 to Ecuador at the Al Bayt Stadium.

A brace from Enner Valencia was enough to start the South Americans' campaign perfectly,

as they ran out comfortable winners in a dominant display.

Despite the partisan atmosphere, the Ecuadorians were calmness personified in possession, dictating the tempo under next-to-no pressure from the Qataris.

Brighton and Hove Albion duo Moises Caicedo and Pervis Estupinan offered thrust and guile in the engine room and down the left respectively

 as Gustavo Alfaro's side threatened to rack up a cricket score, but they kept the scoring down as they eased down to preserve themselves for tougher fixtures ahead.

For Felix Sanchez's Qatar, it is - and they got off to - the worst possible start.

Valencia thought he had opened the tournament's scoring inside three minutes,

nodding in from close range after a penalty box melee from an Estupinan free-kick, but VAR mysteriously disallowed the strike on the grounds of a very dubious offside.

On 16 minutes, however, the Ecuadorians got justice, as nervy home goalkeeper Saad Al-Sheeb felled the onrushing Valencia, conceding a penalty.

The former West Ham and Everton striker converted confidently, and he doubled his side's lead just after the half-hour,

as he glanced a header into the far corner from an Angelo Preciado cross to put the game beyond the hosts.
